Injuries:

dammit! first curry goes down (but for ~14 days).. now Chris Paul is most likely out for the entire playoffs with a fracture in his hand.

Also Blake Griffin looked wrecked.. not sure if Clippers can get passed Portland without those 2 on the floor, especially Paul.


Beasts:

In other news.. Kemba Walker = beast. Having fun watching him destroy my Heat. I mean he's playing out of his mind.. They need to get the ball out of his hands. He's so explosive, nasty J, nasty handles, nasty change of direction/stop on a dime, nasty layups.. this dude is emerging.

Westbrook is also playing out of his mind.. dude is putting up some serious stats. Nearly a triple double every playoff game.

a few days ago, Austin Rivers gutsy performance in game 6:

http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/15431229/austin-rivers-los-angeles-clippers-leaves-game-cut-left-eye



21 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds in 31 minutes.. and playing with 11 stitches around his eye.

beast.

Miami Heat / Charlotte Hornets game 7 today @ 1:30 PM ET.

Pacers / Toronto game 7 today @ 8 PM ET.



Spurs absolutely destroyed OKC.. Barkley picked OKC to upset the Spurs, lool. Durant is a free agent after this season, peace out.



i'm a heat fan soo.. hope they get into the second round. Love their team this year, mix of vets and young hungry players. Hornets are impressive though. I'll be watching more of Kemba Walker next year. ;f

yeah who knew rivers had it in him? i'm just impressed that he wasn't ruined to the depths of his soul by blake griffin's savagely accurate impersonation of him last year.

Dude that's definitely a violation, foul, or something on OKC. You can't do that wtf? Ya flopping sucks, but flop or no flop, you can't do that to someone guarding you on an inbound.

what a crazy finish.. holy shit.

Lol yea I don't understand why they didn't make the call, it was so obvious. The commentator went wild after it happened. It probably hurt the Spurs that Ginoboli tried to keep his balance instead of going down.

I actually became angry when Durant didn't hold on to the ball and Danny Green took it from him. I think it's unfortunate that it looks like he hasn't gained any strength and/or muscle mass since first coming to the league. I understand he's a great skill player and shooter but you figure he'd work on his strength if not for plays like that then to extend his career and prevent injuries.

The reason Chris Webber went wild is because he had flashbacks to the 2002 WCF finals (NEVA FORGET!!!) when Kobe elbows Bibby in the face and has the audacity to shoot 2 FTs even though he should have been ejected for a flagrant 2 or something. To writ

Honestly, I'm glad. Whenever a fucking flopper like Flopobili doesn't get his way, I celebrate with joy.

Sure, it was a foul, but I'm not upset at all :D , people like Flopobili, Anderson Flopejao, James Flopper etc make me hate basketball, so if they get hit, fouled, and it doesn't get called, that's a reason for celebration and infinite happiness.

Follow along! By my count, there were two other potential fouls even before Waiters elbowed Ginobili. 1) Ginobili stepped on, maybe even over the line while guarding the inbounds. This is fairly common, but Ginobili’s encroachment was more egregious than most. The refs could have stopped play there and whistled a delay-of-game foul on the Spurs. 2) Meanwhile, Kawhi Leonard grabbed a handful of Russell Westbrook’s jersey. Again, usually uncalled, but it could have been an away-from-the-play foul, which would have meant a free throw and the ball for OKC.

3) Waiters’s contact with Ginobili. So far, the only one the refs admitted they missed, and probably—though not definitely—the most egregious blown call of the sequence.

4) When Waiters did finally inbound, he jumped before throwing the ball. You can’t do that! It’s a throw-in violation, and if called would have been Spurs ball.

Bonus clock error!) Watch the inbound pass again—the clock starts while Waiters’s pass is at the top of its arc to Kevin Durant. It shouldn’t have. The clock starts when the ball is first touched, and six-tenths of a second rolled off before Durant got a hand on the ball. This is a minor thing, and almost always goes unnoticed, but could have been a reset and we would have gotten to do this all over again.

5) Danny Green ripped away Durant’s arm, stopping him from corralling the inbound pass. Loose-ball foul, two OKC free throws? Whatever, this game was clearly being played under Calvinball rules by this point.

6) As Patty Mills missed a three, Steven Adams’s momentum carried him out of bounds, where a fan in the front row grabbed his arm and hindered him from getting back into the play. Fan interference is a real, if rarely called violation, and would have resulted in a dead ball with OKC possession.

7) Serge Ibaka mauled LaMarcus Aldridge in the scrum for the rebound. Loose-ball foul, two free throws, whatever—at this point, whistles had been swallowed, pooped out, and were halfway to the sewage treatment plant.

Ginobli was that far over the line he was almost in the front row and deserved it. They have put the whistle away so far in the series though which is great. Reminds me of the old Bulls v Pistons finals series. Sucks for Mills to miss that shot cause I'm a massive fan of his but I'm rooting for OKC in this series anyway.
