What are you talking about? The clippers have had a couple semi comebacks but ultimately lose by what an average of 16.5? The spurs have not one time even looked a little in danger. Every run the clips have made gets squashed very shortly after.

Not even just a boring finals, just a boring playoffs period. Injuries sucked the life right out of it..... at this point I couldn't care less about the East playoffs. As long as SA, OKC, and LA stays healthy there may still be some compelling BBall left.

D-Wade can't blame the coach for what happened; he just melted down in every way. I think he's feeling the pressure of winning this year, especially with the Lakers dynasty pretty much done. Whatever...he just needs to shut up and play. I like Wade, but it's not like he didn't get touches yesterday; he just didn't do much when he got the ball. That's on him, not Spoelstra.

I'm not sure he has the pressure of winning, at least to the extent of Lebron. He already has a ring....what I'm wondering is has subjugating the alpha role completely to Lebron taken away some of his mojo?

Ha Greg, this thing will not allow more reps!

Mike and mike on espn where talking trade wade if the heat don't win. I agree actually. Wades slipping, worn out, injury prone, and I think lebron and bosh play better together then either does with wade.

Well to me it looks like a possible Celtics vs Spurs Finals and you feel that would be boring?

What I mean is the Clippers stayed competitive when they could have just rolled over and died. They didn't stop fighting and keep the game close until the Spurs ran away with it late in the game. So if they show that same kind of effort at home I can see them winning a close game but no more than one game.

Bug Squash. And I would bet a painful sum on that.

The Spurs and OKC are the only 2 teams in the playoffs playing at the level you need to be at to win a championship.

Spurs are looking beastly right now. Nice to see it too seeing as how in previous years it was them with the injuries screwing them over.
