Heat for the WIN! Boom Shaka Laka!

Today’s game was AMAZING!

I was only able to catch the 2nd half since HD ABC wouldn’t play at the TV at work which kinda majorly sucked. But it happens that way sometimes. These jerks who ordered food came to watch the game so I was kind of happy that it wasn’t playing on the TV. Karma’s a bitch.

But my biggest thought for today is WHAT IS GOING ON WITH WADE TONIGHT? 5 Turnovers is NOT OKAY. Stop being pressured into a turnover, why didn’t anyone have his back? So many needless bad passes and hesitations by Wade. We need to work on that yeah?

And for Chris Bosh, it’s just like Mark said, you’re a big man so finish the game! A foul doesn’t mean you can just throw up the ball all willy nilly! Take it to the hoop! But amazing job on those block shots! You’re a beast!

And Lebron needs to take those shots when he’s open. You don’t need to be constantly passing the ball to another player. YOU are the key player of this team. Yes team work is important but when you are wide open, take the shot. It wouldn’t hurt to take an open 3 or to go closer for an easy shot. I’m really proud you made all your free throws in Game 2 and missed only 2 today! Such a big improvement from previous games.

And you need to spread out from each other to break up the Thunder defense! When you guys are too close to each other it allows people like Westbrook and Fisher to guard more than one player at a time which is a big NO NO.

Who else was surprised by KD’s 5 personal fouls today? I sure was. For a second I thought he might actually foul out of a game. He should’ve or should I say, almost, fouled out Game 2. He’s been cutting it close. And for those of you who missed it, (like I did because I was at a farewell dinner), here it is:

Whether you think it was a blocking or a charging foul, it is what it is and it’s already over and done with.

What’s really surprising is how consistent the Heat have become with free throws while the Thunder, who are the #1 free throw scoring team during the regular season, is suffering so much from missed free throws which end up becoming missed opportunities.

And I’ll post some highlights from tonight’s game as well.

Udonis Haslem DENYING Derek Fisher’s attempt at the rim!

Dunk by Wade assist by Chalmers!

 

Heat up 2-1! BRING IT ON THUNDER! If the Heat could somehow magically win all 3 at home this series would be set!

Miami at OKC – Game 2 BRING IT ON!

Miami has brought their defensive game to Game 2 but what they’ll need to figure out is how to screen Perkins from getting rebounds and second shot opportunities. Perkins is just a bigger man than Battier and the guy who trades with him. But Wade has shown his true potential early on and combined with Lebron and Bosh a win won’t be an issue as long as they keep playing strong.

Despite not having any blocks in Game 1, Serge Ibaka is stepping to the plate once again to assert his dominance on the court. The Block Masters Wade and Ibaka are going to have to battle it out on the court today. Ibaka has already blocked Wade’s shot in the first few minutes so it’ll be an interesting game to watch.

Oh and did you see Chalmers pass the ball back to Lebron? Good Chalmers…

And we’ll see today if Lebron has been working on his free throw shooting off the court.

Miami up 16-2

Thunder vs Spurs – Game 5 (SOME BULLSHIT CALLS)

I don’t know if you guys were watching the game or not but there were a lot of horseshit calls today. Mostly taking place in the 2nd half. But it didn’t really matter because the Thunder have this under their control! They were dominating in the first half and they continued to bring their A game for the rest of the second half.

It’s moments like these:

and these:

that Thunder fans and all NBA fans live for.

If you missed it pay close attention right around the 6-7 second mark. Look at Westbrook ROAR as he makes that alley oop from KD!

Did you see that back court violation? Now THAT was a bullshit call. Westbrook never had control of the ball and they were starting so close to half court.  Those refs were just full of shit all throughout the game.

Not to mention that play with Leonard and Sefolosha. Leonard fouled him and everyone knows it! He fouled him and shoved him out of bounds, it doesn’t matter if Sefolosha’s back arm touched the ball last.

And Tony Parker needs to stop playing the victim. No one has fouled you so stop throwing yourself to the ground every time there is the least bit of contact from another player. At one point he was just on the ground grabbing his cheek. Grow up.

In case you missed it…

Rondo kicked Battier when he (Rondo) offensively charged into him and fell. Baby tantrum much? I guess that’s one way to get a technical…

Oh NBA.

And how could I forget, did you all see Serge Ibaka’s perfect game yesterday? Second highest perfect game playoff score since Boston’s Scott Wedman in 1974. Some crazy stuff huh?

Miami’s managed to cut Boston’s lead down to 9 so we just need to up the defense and stop the Celtics from shooting. I believe in you guys! Let’s go Heat!

I am so disappointed in the Thunder…

and actually surprised that the Spurs have managed to keep their shit together throughout the playoffs this year.

I don’t really have anything against the Spurs, I actually like them a lot as a team but after losing a few bets on some bad playoff series that included the Spurs I’ve stopped putting too much faith in them. Guess I was wrong about that this year huh?

I just don’t know what is going on with the Thunder. They need to mix things up and step up their defensive game to match the level at which the Spurs are playing at this year.

The Spurs only had a better shooting percentage when it came to Field Goals but they were able to work together as a team to win Game 2 at home. 5 players scored in the double digits and Tony Parker had the most points today with 34.

Not really happy with that Ibaka/Jackson Technical shit that was going on.

I’m really happy that the Thunder were able to shorten the Spurs 22 point lead but it wasn’t enough. Maybe with Perkins on the floor things might have been different?

I really hope the Thunder bring their A game from here on out. I know they’ve been working hard but coach needs to change things up if he wants to see a change in his team.

I believe in you Thunder! Don’t let me down!

Playoffs!

Thunder advances.

Clean win against the Mavs.

Maybe next time Dirk.

Whenever I think of KD anymore I can’t help but think of his Doodle Jump/Sprint commercial. I ended up downloading the game because of the commercial but it was just so so. Nothing too special about it. I’m going to go back to playing Draw Something and Hang Something or other.

Thunder vs Lakers will be an awesome upcoming series and Mark and I are very much looking forward to it. It feels like it was just yesterday when we were at the Playoffs games 2 years ago between the Lakers and the Thunder. The Thunder won’t be as easy to beat this year so the Lakers will have to bring all that they’ve got to make it a good series of games.

I’m sure we’ll have our own bets going on when the time comes for them.

We’ll be able to watch the Playoffs from Hong Kong…right? RIGHT?

I’d be happy too if Fisher could get another ring before Kobe.

It is what it is. Good thing he’s not on the Rockets. Phew~!

Spurs advance.

A little love kiss between Tim Duncan and Al Jefferson. An unrequited love met with such a bitter ending.

I’ll still be your bottom bitch Tim!

Hahaha. I’m just kidding. Love the angling on this picture though. Just priceless.

Let’s face it, the Jazz never had a chance and neither did the Mavs.

Still no Championship for the Jazz. Better luck next year.

I have the Spurs beating either the Grizzlies or the Clippers but losing to the Thunder or the Lakers. I’ve been disappointed before by the Spurs. No longer will I bet on them to win anything. I learned my lesson the first time around.

Clippers lead Grizzlies 3-1

I think they call this position the “Saucy Spoon”.

Come on guys, get a hotel room.

But anyways, I am going to puke. Not only do I absolutely despise the Clippers but I actually bet that the Grizzlies would take the Series…UGH. I might be out some moolah! AND IT WAS SUCH A CLOSE GAME YESTERDAY!!!!!!!! UGH…

I was watching during work and it seemed like it just went on forever. I still believe in Marc and OJ! LETS DO THIS SHIT!

Predictions and Hopes for Today’s Game Schedule

-Lakers close out the Nuggets, once and for all.

-76ers prove that the Bulls are nothing without Rose.

-Pacers halt the Magic’s attempt at a comeback.

-Hawks rise above the Celtics with a last minute clinch!

7 games really?!

How can this end up with a 7 game suspension?

If you look at Ron Artest’s face it looks like he didn’t even know that Harden was there. He was just happy with his awesome play and reacted accordingly.

So what does this mean? Not only does he not get to finish the regular season if the Lakers somehow lose in the first round against the Nuggets the suspension will be good till the next season.

What the bloody hell?

Yeah he deserves a couple games of suspension without pay but 7 seems a bit excessive to me.

Come on…he’s bipolar, cut him some slack!

But it’s Artest, he’s no stranger to the flagrant foul…

Still better than Dennis Rodman’s 11 game suspension. Hahaha.

I’m sure the Lakers will be fine now that Kobe is back in the game.

And the Hawks beat the Clippers!

Blake Griffin made 36 points and Chris Paul had 34 but IT STILL WASN’T GOOD ENOUGH TO BEAT THE HAWKS!

You know why? Because the Hawks had 4 players scoring in the double digits!

The Hawks had an overall better shooting percentage over the Clippers tonight.

And the Heat and the Celtics are going at it!

I was watching the first half at work and the Celtics were having trouble scoring ANY points but now they’re leading by 6!

They’re having a very low scoring game where the Thunder and the Kings are scoring like crazy!

But Lebron, Wade and Bosh aren’t playing today and Allen, Garnett, Rondo and Pietrus are out for the Celtics.

Bench  vs Bench! Haha
