Day 4 of the NBA 2K9 Playoffs

Beantown basketball fighting for a breath of air?! Even without KG, it was tough to see this coming. So far the Bulls have had a hero in each game; last night their man in a cape was Ben Gordon with a whopping 41.

In the end, it just wasn't enough for Chicago as Ray Ray plunked a 3 point shaped nail in the coffin with two seconds left to tie the series at 1-1.

But Boston has got to be worried...

Speaking of splitting up the series, Parker lit up the scene with 38 (27 if it in the first half!) in San Antonio to ensure that Dallas did not take the series back 2-0. I feel for Dallas on that one. As Atma said, as much as we've had our run-ins with them in the past, the Mavs are far more entertaining to watch than the Spurs.

Case in point - Mark Cuban socking a water cooler following the loss last night. Now THAT'S entertainment!

Look at that crazy millionare go!

But enough of that nonsense. Let's talk playoffs - DAY 4!

 

 

Cavaliers v Pistons

 

Series: 1-0 - Cavs

Location: Cleveland

Time: 5:00 PDT

TV: TNT

Let the beatdown continue! My humble opinion is that the LeBron Cavaliers will continue stepping over the Pistons for their valid bid at the ring. But don't take my word for it. head over to Fear the Sword and Motown String Music to get the experts' take on tonight's festivities.


Lakers v Jazz

Series: 1-0 - Lakers

Location: Los Angeles

Time: 7:30 PDT

TV: TNT

Speaking of beatdown, it's tough to see this 1-8 seed matchup going any differently that Cleveland/Detroit. The toughest part about this series is deciding which lesser of two evils you want to win. I chooooooose: Don't watch. For more detailed opnions, check out our friends at Silver Screen and Roll and SLC Dunk.


Trailblazers v Rockets

Series: 1-0 - Rockets

Location: Portland

Time: 7:00 PDT

TV: NBA

Ah the battle for mediocrity. While the 5th seed Houston has managed to jump out to an early lead in this battle  (convingly I might add), I don't think they'll be able to take this back to Texas with a 2-0 series lead. Tonight "Roy to Oden" awakens. At least, that's what our old friends at Blazer's Edge are hoping. Meanwhile, The Dream Shake might have a few other hopes...
