What a game! Just finished watching the Clippers abuse the Thunder in the 4th quarter, holding Durant and Westbrook to a combined single digits in teh second half and I gotta admit it, I’m sold. Don’t get me wrong, they have to make a couple of adjustments like boxing out and not allowing so many offensive rebounds. DeAndre Jordan also needs to get his head in the game. The Clippers need his big body clogging up the pain in the final minutes.
Not much I can say about the Clipper guards though. Chris Paul can pretty much get any shot off he wants. As long as Mo Williams and Randy Foye keep shooting like he did tonight they’re cruise to the Western Conference Finals, at the very least. And I gotta admit, the Nick Young trade is HUGE! Back to back 3s in the 3rd quarter plus a few other buckets kept the Clips in the game when they couldn’t buy a bucket. I’m pumped about the playoffs, only 2 weeks left. I know, I forgot to mention Blake Griffin. He’s awesome. Get’s no respect from the refs. He needs to stop complaining though. Clippers in the playoffs for the first time since 2006. Time to make some noise.
Lebron James is bringing his Miami Heat to Cleveland to put one on the Cavs today. The game will go as follows: the Cavs will come out pumped; Mo Williams will hit a couple of threes, Anderson Varejao will dive for a ball and take a charge on bron bron and the Cavs will go up by a dozen in the first quarter. The Heat will then come back in the 2nd quarter and the game will stay close until the fourth when the Wade (not Lebron) will take over and bury the Cavs.
Now, back to the plot, Clevelanders have to stop pouting. The city sucks, the team sucked, do you blame the King for going to Miami to play with his boys? Do you know how much tang he’s gotten and going to get in Miami? If owner Dan Gilbert was hurt so much, he shouldn’t have done a sign and trade. I hope Lebron drops 40 on his old team. I hope all those morons (fans) that appeared on ESPN and said we hate Lebron don’t have a hard time prying their feet out of their mouths. The NBA IS A BUSINESS. THE PLAYERS ARE BUSINESSMEN. MONEY FIRST, CHAMPIONSHIPS SECOND. Don’t ever forget that. Don’t take it personally. Lebron doesn’t give 2 shits about you so GET OVER IT!!! Remember, he is the CHOSEN 1.
How many times can you utilize the 1 handed floater? Derrick Rose single handedly, LITERALLY, beat the the King and his Cleveland Cavaliers tonight. I’ve never seen so many 1 handed floaters from so many different areas; inside/outside, 6ft, 15ft. This guy is sick. I’m gonna love watching this guy for the next 10 years. He has to get a little more aggressive though. He let his team blow a 21 point lead.
I haven’t changed my mind about the series though, the Cavs are still gonna win, in 5 (no sweep though). Other than Rose being ridiculous, I was reminded of another thing tonight… the King can’t be stopped. In fact, I’m going to take it a step further… Lebron James is the best player in the NBA. Not only is he the King, but he’s the God as well. His outside shooting now demands respect. The guy can nail all kinds of threes. I don’t know why they lost this game? Maybe they were bored? Maybe it’s the the mafia? I guarantee you that they (Cavaliers) will win the next game. Cavs’ big men Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Shaq were nowhere to be found. Nice to see Mo Williams having a decent playoffs after his choke job last year. Even with that poor performance from the Cavs, they still had a chance to pull it out at the end. Lebron James went one on one and either scored, assisted, or got fouled every time. He might be able to do this every single possession. This might be that one game where even though they lost, the Cavs can feel pretty good about themselves. I guarantee you that no one in the Cleveland locker room is worried (maybe Mike Brown a little). Props to the Bulls for not quitting… who knows, maybe they pull this off??? NOT!!!
