I think his head has swelled up lately since many analysts were raving about him being an elite guard with Rose and CP3 comparisons. Hopefully, he learned from the game last nite that Durant should be the closer...not him. With that being said, the Nuggets are a tough team. If they were playing another team in the playoffs, it would be a much closer series. I'm really impressed with Gallo. That kid is gonna be an All-Star one day.

As far the as the Grizz, Mike Conley really has been playing well. His jumper has improved quite a bit from last year. He really has been the difference. Other guys coming off the bench have been playing well also. My man Battier is doing well too!
No OKC are having chemistry problems between Westbrook, Durrant and a couple others. I was at the game, I know what I'm talking about. Like I said they better get it together or they're going to be their own down fall in the 2nd round.

Yes the Nuggets are a tough team and has done great with what they've had to work with as the majority of the guys do not have playoff experience. Game 5 is going to be a good one...

Well the Magic live to see another day...

I thought the Heat played tonight but they play tomorrow but I still think they will close the series.

Yay! For the Bulls closing the series and Rose will have time to rest his ankle while the Magic fight to stay alive.

Bulls finally played like a #1 tonight getting contributions from everyone except boozer. Pacers came back down to earth a little too all that adds up to a 25 point W

It's very upsetting that the bulls look so much better without Boozer on the floor

The Pacers had already started their vacation so the result was not surprising

Agreed.

I had hopes for boozer in the beginning and kept them throughout the series.

Hopefully his fluke is over in the next round

I had been saying they needed to bench Boozer in favor of Gibson. Gibson didn't start, but he got more minutes, and they were well-deserved. Needs to stay out of foul trouble though, but he looked a lot better than Boozer did all series.

Anyone notice how Kenny Smith loses his breath when walking up to that big screen where he pulls the curtains? lmao, he was breathing all hard afterwards.

I watched it online and they looked fine to me. Just some bad decisions by Westbrook and some help by the Nuggets missing all those FTs. Hopefully, Scott Brooks can straighten him out to give the ball up to Durant in a close game. I think they will close out the Nuggets tomorrow nite.
