Memphis should have never lost that game, and they likely would have won in5-6 but that's how it goes.

Cp3 vs Tp9 is gonna be fun. Can the spurs slow griffin, can the clips slow the wings of the spurs? From before the playoffs I have been asking for Utah and lac before okc. I expected Dallas to put up more fight, and I'm hoping for an easy series for the spurs and a tough one for the thunder/lakers. So far do good.
If I was asked to put money on it I would say 5 games. We know the clippers are not winning any games in San Antonio and the Spurs will steal one in LA. The Spurs may not be tested until the finals since they have the HCA.

The stupid coach puts the bench players in for Memphis at the start of the 4th qtr when the grizzlies had just took the lead by 1 at the end of the 3rd qtr.

Well he did allow his team to lose a 27 point lead in Game 1. That's why they lost the series. He gets a pass because of last season so I wouldn't say he should be fired

It'll still be a fun series, nonetheless.

I will pray very hard for OKC's victory over the evil Lakers in Round 2. Lakers don't deserve to go this far.

If it took the Lakers 7 games to beat that Nuggets team then I know for a fact they have no shot to beat OKC. I see the Thunder and Spurs probably winning in 5 games

I agree with you, but I shall to the side of caution. Don't forget Ron Artest's devastating elbow, Artest's similarly devastating clothesline, Andrew Bynum's running elbow shot, and anything those two bozos can come up with to injure opposing players.

I am not condoning anything that would injure a player but realize, sometimes a well timed super hit can changed the direction of a series as Kevin McHale demonstrates in 1984. I vividly remember this. The Lakers had the momentum in this series and this clothesline rattled the Lakers who eventually lost.

Huge finger pointing comments made by Kobe and directed at Bynum and Gasol prior to game 7. I'm more interested in seeing if they implode in the 2nd round like last year and what that means in terms of off-season activity.
