It's PLAYOFF TIME!
Cavaliers 79, Pistons 68 (Cavs lead 3-0)
The Cavaliers have broken Motown's will. Maybe it was something they did pre-game? Or maybe it was just the Pistons quitting in the 4th.
Magic 94, 76ers 96 (76ers lead 2-1)
Give it up for Thaddeus Young and the Sixers crew. Do you realize that "Orlando must win three of the next four games to keep its season alive"? Who would've thought? Not I said the D-wight.
Trail Blazers 83, Rockets 86 (Rockets lead 2-1)
All they can say in Portland is "Argh." But in Houston they have a No Layups rule and it's working quite well.
On a side note I think it's time to give some serious props to the oldest second year player in the league Luis Scola.
- Game 1: 19 points (77.8% FG) and 8 rebounds
- Game 2: 12 points and 5 rebounds
- Game 3: 19 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists
Scola brings it every day and night.
Here's what's on tap for this fine Spring Saturday:
Nuggets @ Hornets (Nuggets lead 2-0): 10am on ESPN
The ESPNZone welcomes Nuggets fans and Nate's got the keys to a Denver W.
Hornets fans: In Chris Paul We Trust. Million dolla bills ya'll. The Hornets will protect NOLA.
Blog Battle: Pickaxe and Roll vs. At the Hive
Spurs @ Mavericks (Mavericks lead 2-1): 1pm on TNT
I must say I'm loving these My Little Pony beat downs on the Snores. It has the Snores thinking: "Who are we?"
The answer of course is... a soon to be 1st round exit.
Blog Battle: Pounding the Rock vs. Mavs Moneyball
Hawks @ Heat (Series tied 1-1): 3:30pm on TNT
The Hawks don't have a superstar, so can they enjoy another team's superstar in the playoffs? It's D-Wade's house in case you haven't heard, so I hope the Hot-lanta faithful can still can enjoy this game.
Blog Battle: Peachtree Hoops vs. Peninsula is Mightier
Lakers @ Jazz (Lakers lead 2-1): 6pm on ESPN
Is it time for the Lakers to stop underselling the Jazz? "Do you like the Jazz? Do you know how to cook?"
No, no, and unfortunately no.
Fakers for the Win. (I just want this series to end faster.)
