Last night three games had surprise endings.

The Bulls beat the Heat again 104-96 to take a 3-0 series lead. The Bulls played well for a young team under that pressure. If you are the Heat you have to play with real passion to crawl all the way back. Ben Gordon led the Bulls attack with 27 points and 5 boards. He hit most of his free throws down the stretch which helped them take down the Heat.

The Nets beat down the Raptors 102-89. The Nets pulled away because VC was hitting almost every shot he took. The Raptors couldn't find their offense and the defense could have been better. Vince Carter had 37 points and 5 assists. Carter has to play like that on the road if the Nets want to win this series. While Carter scored Jason Kidd filled the stat sheet. He had 16 points, 19 assists and 16 rebounds. The stats speak for themselves. Kidd played a fantastic game and I hope he can keep it up.

The Golden State Warriors played on their home floor and beat the Mavericks 109-91 to take a 2-1 series lead. The Warriors played a great game and the Mavs can't push the ball like they do. If the Warriors run fast enough every game I wouldn't count them out to beat the Mavs. Jason Richardson had 30 points and 8 boards. JRich is a great offensive guy that can boost the entire teams confidence by making shoots.
