SUNS WIN!
The Suns beat the Dallas Mavs 106-86 to tie the series at 2 a piece. With the return of Raja Bell the Suns had a big lift that got them going. Bell helped out with 9 points and hit his first two shots and look great with that calf. Steve Nash got 21 points and 7 assists in 33 minutes. Nash played great and got his team contagious with great ball movement. Boris Diaw got 20 points and 9 boards in 39 minutes. Diaw played hard and is a wonderful player. Leandro Barbosa exploded for 24 points and 4 boards in 34 minutes off the bench. Barbosa showed how comfortable he is off the bench and he was on fire. Josh Howard got 16 points and 9 boards in 38 minutes. Howard was the best on the Mavs last night because Dirk played horrible. Dirk Nowitzki got 11 points and 7 boards in 33 minutes. Dirk was held to 3-13 from the field and maybe the Suns learned how to play defense.
GO SUNS!

HEAT WIN!
The Miami Heat beat the Detroit Pistons 89-78 to take a 3-1 series lead. The Heat now have a commanding lead in the series and it's win or go home for the Pistons in game 5. Shaquille O'Neal got 21 points and 9 boards in 36 minutes. O'Neal had so much energy in the first half but it didn't carry on and the Pistons came back. Dwyane Wade got 35 points and 6 boards in 44 minutes. DWade got hot late and made a few shots you don't practice. Udonis Haslem got 16 points and 5 boards in 33 minutes. Haslem played well and hit that jumper when they doubled Shaq. Antoine Walker got 7 points and 6 boards in 35 minutes. Walker didn't do much offensively but helped the Heat win the battle over loose balls. Tayshaun Prince got 15 points and 4 boards in 41 minutes. Prince played great I still think he should get more back downs like game 2. Chauncey Billups got 14 points and 7 assists in 40 minutes.
GO HEAT!

MAVS WIN!
The Dallas Mavs beat the Suns 95-88 to take a 2-1 series lead. Now the Suns have a must win game on Tuesday at home or they could be done in 5. Dirk Nowitzki got 28 points and 17 boards in 41 minutes. Nowitzki played and hit his first three's of the series. Josh Howard got 22 points and 12 boards in 44 minutes. Howard was the one they tried to stop with Marion but Howard still got his. Jason Terry got 19 points and 2 steals in 39 minutes. Terry was much more aggressive and he will play this way for the rest of the series. Shawn Marion got 10 points and 18 boards in 47 minutes. Marion and Thomas are the only two who really worked the boards hard for the Suns. Tim Thomas got 14 points and 10 boards in 36 minutes. Thomas hit the three but wasn't that affective otherwise. Steve Nash got 21 points and 7 assists in 37 minutes. Nash didn't get his assists because the Suns didn't shot well. Boris Diaw got 20 points and 6 boards in 37 minutes. Diaw was brilliant was his up and under moves but the Mavs will catch on to them in game 4.
GO MAVS AND HAPPY LABOR DAY!

HEAT WIN!
The Miami Heat beat the Detroit Pistons 98-83 to take a 2-1 series lead. Shaq dominated early and Wade caught fire in the 3rd and those two beat them. Shaquille O'Neal got 27 points and 12 boards in 37 minutes. O'Neal was great and got a few nice alleyoop passes. Dwyane Wade got 35 points and 8 boards in 43 minutes. DWade scored when he needed to but really focused on getting it to the big flea. Udonis Haslem got 10 points and 7 boards in 35 minutes. Haslem has to get that jumper going when they double Shaq. Antoine Walker got 11 points and 4 assists in 39 minutes. Walker took about half the three's he averaged and that's great when he pushes the ball inside. Chauncey Billups got 31 points and 3 assists in 45 minutes. Billups didn't pass enough for them to steal this game. Rasheed Wallace got 11 points and 10 boards in 35 minutes. Wallace did not hit that three much and was in foul trouble but expect him to be more active in game 4. Richard Hamilton got 20 points and assists in 35 minutes. Hamilton couldn't really get going either it was only Billups in this game.
GO HEAT!

Saturday, May 27, 2006


DALLAS WINS!
The Dallas Mavs beat the Suns 105-98 to take a 1-0 series lead. Dirk came up huge and I think with at least a split in the valley of the Suns they could win the series. Dirk Nowitzki got 30 points and 14 boards in 44 minutes. Nowitzki took no three's that tells you how his game has changed. Josh Howard got 29 points and 7 boards in 40 minutes. Amazing how good and day of rest did for Howard. Jason Terry got 18 points and 4 assists in 42 minutes. Terry was good and didn't take those bad shots that he did take in game 1. Jerry Stackhouse got 11 points and 7 boards in 29 minutes off the bench. Stackhouse found his shot late and came up big off the bench. Steve Nash got 16 points and 11 assists in 39 minutes. The Mavs let Nash do a little but not as much as he did in game 1. Shawn Marion got 19 points and 19 boards in 42 minutes. Marion had a terrific game and really crashed the boards. Tim Thomas got 20 points and 1 steal in 40 minutes. Thomas made one big three but was cold after. Boris Diaw got 25 points and 10 boards in 43 minutes. Diaw had another solid game but it wasn't enough tonight.
GO MAVS!

Friday, May 26, 2006


PISTONS WIN!
The Detroit Pistons beat the Miami Heat 92-88 to tie the series 1-1. Tayshaun Prince got 24 points and 11 boards in 39 minutes. Prince was great they got the ball to him and let him post up which is what he needs to do. Richard Hamilton got 22 points and 4 steals in 43 minutes. Rasheed Wallace got 16 points and 7 boards in 39 minutes. Wallace should get a fine for complaining to the reefs all he did was complain. Ben Wallace got 9 points and 12 boards in 37 minutes. Wallace does the things that don't show up on the stat sheet like all the back taps for offensive boards. Chauncey Billups got 18 points and 8 assists in 40 minutes. Billups needs to get going early maybe the first play get him open for a jumper to start. Shaquille O'Neal got 21 points and 12 boards in 40 minutes. O'Neal played a lot but came up big in this game. Dwyane Wade got 32 points and 7 boards in 46 minutes. DWade play too many minutes but kept the Heat in it with his new found three point shooting.
GO PISTONS!

SUNS WIN!
The Suns beat the Dallas Mavs on the road 121-118 to take a 1-0 series lead. Boris Diaw hit the big shot with 0.5 left to finish the Mavs. Some early injuries in this series Josh Howard left in the 1st period with a sprained right ankle and didn't play after. For the Suns Raja Bell has a left calf strain and was carried off the court without a return. Steve Nash got 27 points and 16 assists in 40 minutes. Nash had a few amazing shots but also some nice passing. Boris Diaw got 34 points and 6 boards in 38 minutes. Diaw went to work and he came up big. Shawn Marion got 24 points and 13 boards in 39 minutes. Marion will have to carry a bigger load with Bell being hurt. Tim Thomas got 17 points and 7 boards in 34 minutes. Thomas has to hit that three and stretch the defense but on the other end get some rebounds. Devin Harris got 30 points and 5 steals in 30 minutes. Instant offense from Harris who is a wonderful player to watch. Jason Terry got 15 points and 4 boards in 40 minutes. Terry had a poor shooting night missed a few quick shots. Dirk Nowitzki got 25 points and 19 boards in 41 minutes. Dirk crashed the offensive glass but didn't come up with a lot of the Mavs second chance points. Jerry Stackhouse got 16 points and 4 boards in 35 minutes. I would think Stackhouse will start the next game if Howard even plays game 2.
GO SUNS!

HEAT WIN GAME 1!
The Miami Heat pulled off a road win over the Pistons 91-86 to take a 1-0 lead in the series. The Heat supporting cast was the key to the game this time when Shaq and Wade had foul trouble. Dwyane Wade got 25 points and 5 assists in 27 minutes. Wade didn't play much but when he did he was instant offense. Shaquille O'Neal got 14 points and 8 boards in 29 minutes. O'Neal was good but didn't have to dominate this game. Antoine Walker got 17 points and 7 boards in 38 minutes. Walker and Payton had there best games of the playoffs last night they were scoring more. Gary Payton got 14 points and 3 boards in 35 minutes off the bench. Payton has to keep this up and maybe he'll find some youth in this series like Finely did for the Spurs. Ben Wallace got 6 points and 14 boards in 39 minutes. Wallace is a player you love he doesn't score but has an impact we need more centers like that in this league. Richard Hamilton got 22 points and 4 boards in 41 minutes. I like how Flip Saunders had gone to the bench more I expect Lindsey Hunter to be a big part of game 2. Tayshaun Prince got 16 points and 6 boards in 40 minutes. Prince needs a few more isolation plays were he can get into the post and score. Look for this series to get tougher and hardier fouls in game 2.
GO HEAT!

THE CONFERENCE FINALS ARE SET!
After last night's game 7 the Western conference finals are set. In the first game the Spurs lost to the Mavs 119-111 in OT and the Mavs take the series 4-3. To bad for the Spurs but if your the Mavs you finally beat the Spurs! Dirk Nowitzki got 37 points and 15 boards in 50 minutes. Nowitzki was big when he hit that lay up and the foul late in regulation. Jason Terry got 27 points and 6 boards in 49 minutes. Terry had a few rainbows that were money and hitting those shots was something they didn't have in game 6. Josh Howard got 18 points and 6 boards in 36 minutes. Howard was great and really got the Mavs going early in the 1st. Jerry Stackhouse got 13 points and 6 assists in 40 minutes off the bench. Stackhouse also hit a big shot in OT and made it a three point play. Tim Duncan got 41 points and 15 boards in 50 minutes. Duncan played his best individual game of the playoffs but his team didn't do enough I think. In the second game the Suns beat the LA Clippers 127-107 and take the series 4-3. Now the Suns will play the Mavs in the Western Conference finals. The Clippers had a great season but should look to get farther next year. The Suns shot 60% for the game and 55.6% from downtown and those were the keys of the game.
GO SUNS AND MAVS!

PISTONS WIN!
The Detroit Pistons beat the Cleveland Cavs 79-61 to win the series 4-3. I'm not surprised the Pistons were on the guard on defense and I knew the could stop LJ. The Pistons are great and are ready for the anticipated Heat battle. The Cavs ended the season but should be proud the can stay close to the best team in the NBA. Tayshaun Prince got 20 points and 7 boards in 47 minutes. Prince was great on the back downs off of pick and rolls set by Detroit. Chauncey Billups got 12 points and 8 boards in 44 minutes. Billups was great and didn't have to put his finger print on this game like Prince did. Rasheed Wallace got 13 points and 8 boards in 41 minutes. Wallace didn't hesitate the entire series with his three pointers and that's what he has to do to be affective against the Heat. Richard Hamilton got 15 points and 4 boards in 35 minutes. Hamilton and the other Pistons should let offense come to them through Prince like the did perfectly in this game. LeBron James got 27 points and 8 boards in 47 minutes. LJ was one of only two players in double figures in this game the rest of his team just didn't show up.
GO PISTONS!

Sunday, May 21, 2006

GAME TODAY!
Today on ABC at 3:30 Eastern the Cavs will be in Detroit to face the Pistons in game 7. Larry Hughes will play in this game after missing some games because the death of his brother Justin. This is a win or go home game and the Pistons should come up on top but the Cavs will fight hard.
WATCH IT!

Saturday, May 20, 2006


NOW TWO MORE GAME 7'S!
After last night's games two more game 7's have been forced. In the first game the Detroit Pistons beat the Cleveland Cavs 84-82 to tie the series at 3 a piece. In the second game the Spurs beat the Dallas Mavs 91-86 to tie the series at 3. The Cavs were there and almost tied the game and forced OT but now I think the Pistons to take care of bushiness at home. If your the Pistons you're feeling good but can't loose focus at home. Rasheed Wallace got 24 points and 4 assists in 46 minutes. Wallace was hitting the big shots down the stretch and look for him to be a big part of game 7 on Sunday at 3:30 Eastern on ABC. Chauncey Billups got 15 points and 4 steals in 40 minutes. When Billups hit that tough shot leaning into Eric Snow I could tell how much the Pistons needed that game. Tayshaun Prince got 15 points and 8 boards in 48 minutes. Prince surprised me that he went for the whole 48 I think he needs more rest. LeBron James got 32 points and 11 boards in 48 minutes. LJ had 7 turnovers that's a big reason for the Cavs to lose this game. Zydrunas Ilgauskas got 16 points and 6 boards in 27 minutes. Big Z was hitting that jumper which he will have to be affective with in game 7. Drew Gooden got 13 points and 8 boards in 24 minutes. Gooden was doing well early but late sat on the bench if he's your starter you want him on the floor in close games. Game 7 of the Spurs and Mavs will be Monday 7:00 pm eastern on TNT.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR GAME 7!

Friday, May 19, 2006

CLIPPS WIN!
The LA Clippers beat the Suns 118-106 and keep the season alive and tie the series 3-3. The Clipps knew they had to win this game and now go to game 7. If your the Suns now you will miss out on any rest and you have to be ready for game 7. Elton Brand got 30 points and 12 boards in 43 minutes. Brand was great but he'll have to be greater in game 7 and put it all on the line. Chris Kaman got 15 points and 10 boards in 30 minutes. Kaman played well he needs to come in with energy and be more active in game 7. Sam Cassell got 15 points and 8 assists in 31 minutes. Sam I am didn't have it going early and shouldn't shoot those quick jumpers early in the shot clock. Corey Maggette got 25 points and 8 boards in 27 minutes off the bench. Maggette should come off the bench I think he gives great bench production. Quinton Ross got 18 points and 5 boards in 40 minutes. Ross gave the extra bonus with his offense tonight. Steve Nash got 17 points and 11 assists in 39 minutes. Shawn Marion got 34 points and 9 boards in 43 minutes. Marion played wonderfully if I saw these numbers from him I would say the Suns won this game. Boris Diaw got 17 points and 9 boards in 39 minutes. Diaw almost had a triple double and I'm really impressed with his versatility.
GO CLIPPS!

TWO NAIL BITING GAMES!
Last night there were two great down to the wire game fives. A huge surprise in the first game the Cleveland Cavs beat the Detroit Pistons 86-84 and take a 3-2 series lead. I couldn't believe my eyes that the Cavs won can they beat the Pistons in 6? The big play was that huge block by Donyell Marshall late in the game then the rolling the ball down the court to kill time was smart. LeBron James got 32 points and 5 assists in 47 minutes. Bron Bron was making the big plays and I'm impressed by his play. Zydrunas Ilgauskas got 14 points and 10 boards in 28 minutes. Big Z hasn't been that big this series and maybe he should be on the bench. Donyell Marshall got 14 points and 13 boards in 35 minutes. Marshall has been big these playoffs he's the sixth man right now. Im the second game the Spurs stayed alive with a 104-103 win over the Mavs to make the series lead 3-2 for the Mavs. Tim Duncan was money and came out with a scence of urgency. Tim Duncan got 36 points and 12 boards in 44 minutes. Duncan was great and his foot didn't bother him tonight. Manu Ginobili got 18 points and 5 assists in 39 minutes. Ginobili was great with that move behind his back amazing. Tony Parker got 27 points and 4 assists in 37 minutes. Parker got the ball to his team for once and that's a good sign for this series.

TWO GREAT GAMES!
Last night's games were amazing. In the first game the Heat beat the Nets 106-105 and move on to the Eastern conference finals. The Heat can now rest and wait for LJ or Detroit. In the second game the Suns beat the LA Clippers in a thrilling double overtime 125-118 to take a 3-2 series lead. Shawn Marion got 36 points and 20 boards in 55 minutes. Marion hurt his ankle after a put back we'll see how he does in the next game. Steve Nash got 13 points and 17 assists in 50 minutes. Nash was great and played a good game of passing and scoring. Elton Brand got 33 points and 15 boards in 55 minutes. Brand did all he could to keep his team close but it wasn't enough. Sam Cassell got 32 points and 5 assists in 50 minutes. Cassell was clutch and he came up big when they needed him to.
GAMES START AT 7:00 PM EASTERN ON TNT!

Tuesday, May 16, 2006


ONE SERIES 3-1 ANOTHER ONE TIED!
In the first game the Cavs beat the Pistons 74-72 to tie the series at 2-2. Bron Bron didn't have as great of a scoring 4th but he did catch some fire. LeBron James got 22 points and 9 assists in 48 minutes. LJ will not sit for probably the rest of the series but he almost had another triple double and that's what he does when he can't score. Eric Snow got 12 points and 3 boards in 36 minutes. Snow was big with the lay up off the steal when the Cavs were on a huge run. Anderson Varejao got 10 points and 6 boards in 28 minutes. Varejao has been the sixth man of this series for sure. Richard Hamilton got 30 points and 2 boards in 39 minutes. Rip did to much of his own offense if you ask me he should be more passive. Chauncey Billups got 11 points and 7 assists in 42 minutes. Billups was good and did what he needed to do on both ends. In the second game the Mavs beat the Spurs 123-118 in overtime to take a 3-1 series lead. The Mavs need to close this one out if they let the Spurs get one game I think they'll get 2 more in a row.
GAME START AT 8:00 PM EASTERN TNT!

Monday, May 15, 2006

TWO GREAT GAMES!
Last night the game 4's were all down to the wire. In the first game the Miami Heat beat the New Jersey Nets 102-92 to take a 3-1 series lead. The Heat can win the series but they have play hard at home. The Nets had another bad 4th period and missed easy shots. Udonis Haslem got 20 points and 11 boards in 37 minutes. It was Haslem and Walker hitting three's and jumpers that won the game for the heat. Dwyane Wade got 31 points and 7 boards in 45 minutes. Wade caught fire with the jumper and was money in the 4th. Jason Kidd got 17 points, 12 assists and 13 boards in 44 minutes. Kidd had a magnificent game but it wasn't enough. Nenad Krstic got 20 points and 14 boards in 45 minutes. Krstic had that big game everyone thought he would be didn't hit that jumper late in the 4th. In the second game the LA Clippers beat the Suns 114-107 to tie the series at 2-2. This is going to be a great 7 game series I think.
TWO MORE TONIGHT AT 7:00 PM EASTERN TNT!

Sunday, May 14, 2006

CAVS GET A GAME!
The Cleveland Cavs beat the Detroit Pistons 86-77 to cut the Pistons series lead to 2-1. The Cavs won on LJ's unselfishness and trust in his team. Bron Bron finished with 21 points and 10 boards also 10 assists in 48 minutes. James had a triple double and he worked all game for it. Anderson Varejao got 16 points and 2 boards in 22 minutes. Varejao was the key to the game for getting all the lose balls and his hustle points. Ronald Murray who started for Larry Hughes got 13 points and 7 boards in 45 minutes. Murray was great when they needed him and he has to keep up if he starts again. Speaking of Larry Hughes I would like to give my condolences to the Hughes family for Justin's loss. Ben Wallace got 5 points and 13 boards in 38 minutes. Big Ben did his rebounding but didn't seem to dominate the defense like he usually does. Richard Hamilton got 22 points and 5 assists in 43 minutes. Hamilton does it again he scores over 20 I think that number should mean a W though.
HAPPY MOTHER DAY!

Saturday, May 13, 2006

TWO GREAT GAMES!
Last night in the playoffs the game 3's were better than any other games of the series. In the first game the New Jersey Nets lost to the Miami Heat 103-92 and the Heat take a 2-1 series. The Nets fell apart in the 4th because of committing turnover after turnover. Dwyane Wade got 30 points and 10 assists in 42 minutes. DWade was terrific and played one of his best games since the injury. James Posey got 8 points and 10 boards in 35 minutes off the bench. Posey was key with the rebounding when the Heat went small and he helped them get this win big time. Shaquille O'Neal got 19 points and 9 boards in 36 minutes. O'Neal didn't have a monster night but did enough because Wade was hot. Antoine Walker got 16 points and 4 boards in 34 minutes. Walker was streak and had his three going tonight. Vince Carter got 43 points and 6 boards in 41 minutes. VC shot 50% percent you may think that's good but not when you take 34 shots. In the other game the Suns beat the LA Clipps 94-91 to take a 2-1 series lead. The Clipps can't win the series if they can't win at home.

TWO SERIES TIED UP!
After last night's games two series are tied 1-1. In the first game the Miami Heat beat the New Jersey Nets 111- 89. Like they said at halftime on TNT the Nets were ready to go home for game 3. Dwyane Wade got 31 points and 6 assists in 38 minutes. Wade was terrific his 3 points shooting was good for once. Shaquille O'Neal got 21 points and 6 boards in 29 minutes. Shaq was alright he still needs a few more touches here and there. Vince Carter got 22 points and 5 assists in 34 minutes. VC worked it inside but Shaq has adjusted to not picking up bad fouls. Jason Kidd got 15 points and 6 assists in 35 minutes. JKidd didn't all of his numbers across the board and that affects the Nets. In the second game the LA Clippers beat the Suns 122-97 to tie the series. The Clipps now can go home were if they win both games could win the series.
MAKE IT GO 7 GAMES!

ONE SERIES 2-0 ANOTHER 1-1!
Last night there were no blowout but one team was in control. In the first game the Detroit Pistons beat the Cleveland Cavs 97-91 to take a 2-0 lead. Rasheed Wallace got 29 and 9 boards in 41 minutes. Wallace was great and hit the big three's to do the Cavs in. Ben Wallace got 10 points and 15 boards in 42 minutes. Wallace does it all for the team you have to love him as a player. LeBron James got 30 points and 14 boards in 48 minutes. LJ did everything he could for his team but came up short. In the other game the Dallas Mavs beat the Spurs 113-91 to tie the series at 1-1.

ONE ROAD TEAM WINS AND MVP KEEPS CONTROL!
Last night their were some great game 1's. In the second game I want to talk about first the Suns beat the LA Clippers 130-123. The Suns played their pace again and that's why they won. Steve Nash got 31 points and 12 assists in 41 minutes. Nash was great and if he has 30 and 10 I believe they can win any game. Shawn Marion got 20 points and 15 boards in 39 minutes. Marion was terrific and his ability to rebound is what keeps this Suns team together. Elton Brand got 40 points and 9 boards in 42 minutes. Brand was fantastic with his scoring but that's what he has to let his team do score more. Sam Cassell got 28 points and 4 assists in 33 minutes. Cassell has been the key to the Clipps success and they have to try to keep him around one more year. In the other game the Nets had control and beat the Heat 100-88 and take a 1-0 series lead.

PISTONS WIN!
The Detroit Pistons beat the Cleveland Cavs 113-86 and take a 1-0 series lead. The Pistons dominated the Cavs on both ends and played great defense. Chauncey Billups got 14 points and 10 assists in 31 minutes. Billups was great and got the team involved which is great. Tayshaun Prince got 24 points and 3 boards in 32 minutes. Prince has to go out and put points on the board and just focus on scoring. Richard Hamilton got 24 points and 3 assists in 34 minutes. Hamilton was good but he has to try and be more of a play maker if you ask me. Antonio McDyess got 12 points and 3 blocks in 22 minutes. McDyess was terrific off the bench and he's looking the old McDyess a little. LeBron James got 22 points and 4 assists on 34 minutes. LJ got no help from his team with only 2 other players in double figures. Zydrunas Ilgauskas got 14 points and 5 boards in 25 minutes. Z needs a couple more looks inside and shot more than 14 times. Anderson Varejao got 11 points and 8 boards in 21 minutes. Varejao off the bench brings energy just like a Ronny Turiaf in LA which get everyone going.
GO PISTONS!
LOOK AT DOMON JONES!

ROUND 2 PREVIEWS!
I want to talk about the round 2 of playoffs, let's see who wins! In the first game today it will be Dallas Mavs at the Spurs at 1:00 pm Eastern on ABC. This will be a great series and I think the Spurs will pull it out in the end though. Next the Cavs make trip to face the Detroit Pistons at 3:30 pm Eastern on ABC. The Pistons will mop the floor will the Cavs who will gain more key playoff experience in the process. On Monday the first game will be the Nets going to Miami and the Heat at 8:00 pm Eastern time on TNT. The Heat will have a tough time and I have no favorite right now for this series. Next at 10:30 pm Eastern will be the LA Clippers at the Suns on TNT. The Suns got beat by the Clipps at home but with a fully healthy Steve Nash should win in 5 or 6 games.
WATCH IT ALL!
LAKERS GO FISHIN!
After last night's 121-90 loss in Phoenix the Laker's became the eight team to let a team comeback from down 3-1 and win the series. Kobe only shot 3 times in second half and only scoring 1 point on a three second illegal defense free throw. In the end of the third Steve Nash sprained his right ankle by stepping on Shawn Marion but after the game said he would be ready for the Clippers on Monday. This game got away from LA because they let the Suns play their pace and Kobe didn't try to shot his team back in the game. Steve Nash got 13 points and 9 assists in 35 minutes. Nash seemed gimpy but I think he'll be ready for game 1 with some treatment. Boris Diaw got 21 points and 9 assists in 39 minutes. Diaw was great and I think next year he will play well with Amare. Shawn Marion got 14 points and 10 boards in 36 minutes. Marion got his and that's why they won. Leandro Barbosa got 26 points and 2 assists in 31 minutes. Barbosa's quickness was on full display and the Lakers were defenseless on his drives. Near the end of the game I was amazed as Pat Burke hit a long three and wow it was just harder for LA to go threw. Kobe Bryant got 24 points and 4 boards in 43 minutes. Bryant was good but stayed in the offense when they were down which surprised me. Luke Walton got 16 points and 5 boards in 32 minutes. Walton is the only one who actually helped Kobe no wonder they lost!
GO SUNS!

TWO MORE TEAMS DONE!
After two game 6's two more teams went fishin. In the first game the Cleveland Cavs beat the Washington Wizards 114-113 in overtime. Damon Jones played only 14 seconds but had a huge game winning jump shot. Before OT Gilbert Arenas hit a very long three that sent the game to OT. LeBron James got 32 points and 7 assists in 53 minutes. LJ was great and didn't forget about getting the involved as well. Donyell Marshall got 28 points and 8 boards in 40 minutes off the bench. Marshall played one of his best games as a Cav and hit three's on broken plays. Ronald Murray got 21 points and 4 boards in 38 minutes off the bench. This bench kept them in the game without them we might have a game 7. Gilbert Arenas got 36 points and 11 assists in 53 minutes. Arenas did all he could for his team to win and I hate to see it end like this for him. Caron Butler got 18 points and 20 boards in 52 minutes. Butler crashed the boards and did the little things well maybe they should guard Damon Jones! Antawn Jamison got 15 points and 5 assists in 40 minutes. Jamison played great also but seemed a little off after he was gimpy on that leg. Antonio Daniels got 22 points and 3 boards in 41 minutes off the bench. Daniels is a great bench player for them and has to do better next year. In the last game the Kings got blown out by the Spurs 105-83 and the Spurs go to the next round for Dallas. The Kings didn't have Ron Artest for part of the game and that's what lost it for them.
ONE GAME 7 TONIGHT AT 8:00 PM EASTERN TNT!

ANOTHER TEAM DONE AND ANOTHER ONE CLOSER!
Last night one team ended a series and one is one game away. In the first game the Detroit Pistons beat the Milwaukee Bucks 122-93 to win the series. The Bucks weren't good enough in the first place I'm not surprised. Now the Pistons have time to scout out the Cavs vs. Wizards series and have plans for both teams. In the second game which had a great finish the Cleveland Cavs beat the Washington Wizards 121-120 in overtime. LJ had a big game winning layup but he didn't travel unlike game 3. LeBron James got 45 points and 6 assists in 46 minutes. Bron Bron was big once again when the lights were on great job! Gilbert Arenas got 44 points and 5 boards in 53 minutes. Arnas was great in the first half and hit his three's.

4 SERIES 3-2!
After last nights games their are four series with a 3-2 lead. In the first game the New Jersey Nets beat the Indiana Pacers 92-86. The Nets have a good advantage and have pound the ball inside to win game 6. Jason Kidd got 15 assists and 6 boards in 40 minutes. JKidd put up great numbers without scoring and he's a great team player. Vince Carter got 34 points and 15 boards in 42 minutes. VC shot a bad percentage but made up for it by crashing the boards. Danny Granger got 9 points and 12 boards in 34 minutes. Granger in starting five will boost his confidence and he'll play harder. Jermaine O'Neal got 19 points and 7 boards in 42 minutes. Solid numbers for Jermaine I think had has be no less than 20 and 10 every game. In the next game the Miami Heat beat the Chicago Bulls 92-78. Flash went down with a bruised left hip came back in slow motion but was affective. Shaquille O'Neal got 16 points and 10 boards in 27 minutes. O'Neal was very active and has to do that more often. Dwyane Wade got 28 points and 5 assists in 33 minutes. Wade got the team involved better after he got injured. In the two other game the Spurs beat the Kings 109-89 despite 38 points from Bonzi Wells. In the last game the Suns beat the Lakers 117-97 and Kobe got ejected.
CAN'T WAIT FOR GAME 6!

14 TEAMS LEFT AND THE BUCKS HAVE WORN OUT THEIR WELCOME!
After last night's games there was one sweep and a series win in 5 games also a 3-1 series leader. First the Dallas Mavs beat the Grizz 102-76 to sweep the series. The Grizz need a new plan for next season. Dirk Nowitzki got 27 points and 7 boards in 35 minutes. It's important that Dirk gets just right amount of down time so he will be ready for the Spurs or Kings. Josh Howard got 24 points and 9 boards in 38 minutes. Howard was great and he needs score like this for the Mavs to be more effective. Pau Gasol got 25 points and 6 boards in 39 minutes. Gasol was the only trying for the Grizz I think the rest of the team just packed up for the summer. In the second game the Detroit Pistons beat the Milwaukee Bucks 109-99 to take a 3-1 series lead. Chauncey Billups got 34 points and 6 assists in 42 minutes. Billups made 16 free throws and went out and attacked the Bucks tonight. Antonio McDyess got 11 points and 11 boards in 28 minutes. In limited minutes those are terrific numbers for McDyess. Tayshaun Prince got 18 points and 7 assists in 46 minutes. Prince turned into the play maker and played it wonderfully. Michael Redd got 33 points and 4 boards in 42 minutes. Redd played well but didn't try to get his team invovlved and that doesn't win ball games. Last the LA Clippers took out the trash and won 101-83 over the Nuggets and take the series 4-1. I can't wait for this possible matchup the LA Clippers and LA Lakers!!
MELO AND PAU ARE GOIN FISHIN!

KOBE HIT AN AMAZING SHOT!
In game 4 their were two amazing plays to make the LA Lakers 99-98 win over the Suns a classic. First in the end of regulation Smush Parker stole the ball from Nash and got to Kobe to force overtime. In the end of overtime off of a jump ball tipped to Kobe from Luke Walton Kobe hit an amazing fade away jumper to win the game. Lamar Odom led the way with 25 points and 8 boards in 49 minutes. When Kobe had to sit with foul's Odom hit some big shots while being fouled. Kobe Bryant got 24 points and 8 assists in 39 minutes. Bryant gets the ball to what is a better supporting cast than I thought. Kwame Brown got 12 points and 10 boards in 35 minutes. The thing I like about Brown is that he never gives up on plays anymore he keep's at it. Devean George got 11 points and 2 boards in 21 minutes off the bench. George hit a few big three's and was perfect when the Suns went small. Steve Nash got 22 points and 11 assists in 43 minutes. Nash played well and needed more help to win. Shawn Marion got 20 points and 12 boards in 44 minutes. Marion had a great game but fouled out late and that's a reason they lost. In the other games the Bulls ties it with Miami 2-2 (93-87), the Wizards beat the Cavs and tied it 2-2 (106-96) and last the Kings tied it with the Spurs and won 102-84.
GO LAKERS!
