HIGHLIGHTS: Day 26 of the 2k8 NBA Playoffs
Gimme a J! Gimme a U! Gimme a M! Gimme a P! What's that spell?
Over in the East we've got the Pistons heading to their 6th straight Eastern Conference Finals (on a side note- where are all those clueless critics who called for Joe Dumars to blow up ship last season? Probably the same place as those Warriors fans/ analysts who are happy that Mullin and company blew up last year's playoff team with a silly trade that even Nellie has publicly acknowledged was a step back this season) and the Celtics and Cavs just protecting home court. Back here on the Wessyde we've got both of last year's Western Conference Finals snorefest participants on the verge of "gone fishing". Wouldn't it be fun to see the Lakers knock out the not-so-jazzy Jazz in front of the most disgusting fans in the NBA [Bleacher Report]?
Life is good my friends.
G6: New Orleans Hornets @ San Antonio Spurs (Hornets lead 3-2)
It's a closeout game and this is probably all you need to know courtesy of our new SBN hoops blog New Orleans Hornets blog At the Hive: The Spurs in Close-Out Games. Will the Hornets close out the Spurs tonight? Probably not, but Game 7- now that's a different story.
