Let's talk hoops!

Will the Pistons close it out against the Magic tomorrow, or do you think there will be a Game 6?

Are the Spurs losing their sparkle?

Other thoughts, predictions, critiques? Bueller?

I'm surprised that they've struggled this much in the playoffs. Sure, they're winning games, but it seems to be taking so much effort! Not what I expected at all from them.

Yeah. It's breaking my heart. :roll:

YAY PISTONS!! And they didn't even have Chauncey Billups for the past two games!

Now I'm off to keep an eye on the Hornets-Spurs game.

Whoa, what the heck happened to the Spurs?! I couldn't stay up for the whole game. Was it as ugly as the final score seems to indicate?

Yes. It was every bit as ugly.

The Pistons have had an incredibly easy playoff schedule so far. Philly? Orlando? Puh-lease. Let's see how they do against Boston or Cleveland. It's mind-boggling how terrible Boston has been on the road, though. It'll be another sacrificial lamb coming out of the East this year.

My beloved Spurs got totally out-hustled in the third quarter again last night. Pop needed to call an earlier timeout and get them straightened out. They gave up on attacking the basket in the second half so they didn't draw fouls or break down the defense. They fell in love with the 3 pointer because of the first half. And the refereeing was terrible, but at least it was bad both ways. Tyson Chandler did not foul Parker on that pick. Oh well, we'll regroup and take game 6 and then game 7 will be epic.

I still don't get why people think Chris Paul is the 2nd best player in the NBA. He's a good point guard but I can think of about 15 guys I'd rather have on my team above him.

I'm really interested to see how Kobe plays with his back injury. Those things don't go away over night but he's a tough SOB with a full arsenal of weapons who can score from anywhere on the floor.

Boston and LA took care of business at home. I don't remember any playoff series in the last 20 years which has been so lopsided in favor of the home team. It's just weird.

So will the Lakers rest Kobe in game 6? I'm thinking they'll start him but might sit him after the first half if the game gets out of hand. If it's a close game I think he'll play the whole thing.

Spurs fight for their lives tonight. Go Spurs Go.

I look forward to watching the Spurs game. I really hope they pull through.

Heard at my house just now: "So there, Charles Barkley!"

Go Spurs!

1-1, talps. My Pistons looked pretty good last night. Now y'all are coming to DEE-troit. And you gotta win one here. What's the word on the street in Beantown?

Detroit is all heart and as much as I dig KG, the Celtics (and KG in particular) just don't have that killer instinct. They've got so much talent, but no heart. Detroit in 6.

Spurs look to steal a game tonight. If Manu hadn't run out of gas in the 3rd quarter, it'd already be 1-0 for the Spurs. If Bowen can keep out of foul trouble I think the Spurs should win this one easily tonight. Spurs in 6.

If the Pistons would only strap on skates, they'd be assured of a win. :D

I am purposely avoiding Boston newspaper websites today as though they were the Parquet Plague, so I don't know what the rags are sayin' about my team today. Pistons took it to 'em for sure last night, but I'm still optimistic. We did win one in Detroit during the regular season, and the Pistons dropped a home game to the 76ers earlier in the playoffs. Tall order to win there considering we're an oh-fer on the road in the playoffs thus far, but if we don't snag one, we don't deserve to go any deeper.

And Mel... Funny stuff. McCarty would indeed make a good Piston.

I can't get the image of him flailing around, throwing elbows (albeit in the kneecaps), jersey off, tattoos glistening... wait, what?

Celtics! KG is one of the nicest men in the biz, and I have to root for him. If we could see Celtics/Lakers, that would be my dream final.

What the heck is up with the Spurs? They looked awful last night!

Any predictions for the Pistons/Celtics series?

Uhhhhhh, Pistons in 6?

My husband is a Spurs fan and he is just crushed. I patted his knee and said "they can't win every year." Poor thing.

I really felt bad for Manu - he didn't even score until the third period.

Holy Mackinaw! The Lakers had a 24-point lead late in the 2nd quarter - a 20-point lead in the 3rd - and blew it.

Jack Nicholson is gonna be in a baaaaaaad mood.
