Kevin Durant! Reppin' DC!!!

And to think, that CLOWN down in Miami got the MVP. Kevin Durant has been CLUTCH this entire post-season, possibly the most clutcn player in the entire playoffs so far. And "he who shall not be named" in Miami has been anything BUT clutch.

Maybe they should wait to name the MVP until after the entire season is over.

He is definitely the MVP of the playoffs

Some questions pop up, can the lakers extend their series? Can the thunder continue to come from behind to beat them? Can the lakers win with Kobe shooting 2-10 in the 4th or with pau taking less then 10 shots.

Are the kings going to push the spurs/clippers to Monday, or will the spurs get the back to back game they actually want to have?

I could not bring myself to watch the last 8 minutes of the game. I thought Lakers would have it in the bag, and that would make me very unhappy (to say the least). But way to go, Durant. Harden (for extending the lead) and Perkins (for tying the game) deserve credit too. Evil must not prosper.

Now on to Heat-Pacers.

I'm going with no,yes, and no.

But seriously, OKC can play the half court game if need be, and the Lakers simply cannot keep up with them when the game speeds up. Kobe's hit some big offensive numbers( with a ton of free throws along the way), but he's effectively neutralized by OKC's perimeter scorers and the Lakers bigs have largely been kept from going off. Thunder would do well to go for the jugular in game 5, I wouldn't take the 3-1 lead for granted because if LA wins game 5, they're at home for game 6 and if they take that, the pressure's on OKC in game 7. If I were them, I'd treat the next game like its an elimination game.

Well, on paper this upcoming Spurs/Thunder series looks like a lot of fun. That will more than likely decide the champ this year. I haven't looked forward to a WCF this much since, Lakers/Kings back in 2002.

Just like I was saying at the beginning, Kobe is already throwing out the "I have to shoot all these shots because the other guys are not doing it". He is blaming gasol for not being aggressive, and while pau may not be, he also can't be because Kobe is taking 25+ shots, then Bynum is taking 12+ so gasol has lost his place. Give him 5-8 of Kobe's shots and see if the outcome is different.
