San Antonio 110, New Orleans 99: They were teetering on the edge of going down 3-0, but the Spurs did what defending champions do: They won at home. I love cliches.
In other news, Chris Paul is the best player on the planet right now. Check the vid. That shot is insane. With home-court advantage I don’t see how the Hornets lose so long as Paul keeps playing at this unbelievable level.
And, just for the sake of dredging up something old that I will never forget about him, so long as he doesn’t hit anybody in the nuts.
Thankfully this was a great game after the Eastern Conference abomination I had to watch earlier in the night. Sweet Jesus, man.
Boston 89, Cleveland 73: I mean, come on. Look at this freakin’ score. Don’t get me wrong, the Celtics are a great defensive team, but it’s a crime NBA fans have to watch the LeBrons score 72 and 73 in back-to-back games.
This “offense” Mike Brown is running is beyond brutal. But what’s he supposed to do? LeBron doesn’t have any help. Wally Szczerbiak? Daniel Gibson? Big Z? That’s the best you can muster? Blech.
Looking back, it’s hard to imagine how this roster made it to the NBA Finals. I think it begs the question: Just how good was King James last year?
