    My Spurs just completed their second straight sweep. We're now 29-2 in our last 31 games.

    Here's my thoughts thus far:

    1. SA looks unbeatable, but they haven't run into anyone who can beat them yet. Does that make sense? Next round will be fun to watch.
    2. I like the anger in the LAL-OKC series. I think OKC is probably the most entertaining team to watch. That, and Durant is awesome. Pure awesomeness. Meta is a joke but makes for good drama. Wonder if he knows that WE ALL know he's full of s. And as I'm writing this he got hit with a flagrant and a T. Lol. The revamped "Lakers with Attitude" is working out well for them. It might be losing the first two games to OKC was the best thing for them. Having Westbrook take 5 minutes off per half doesn't help the Thunders' chances either. Seriously, watch him. He'll randomly decide to just run up and down the floor, pass a little bit, play some minimal token defense and commit a couple turnovers for 5 minutes. Why doesn't anyone comment on this?
    3. The Celtics can't keep this up.
    4. The Heat can keep this up. They will probably feed more and more off the negativity and I would think Pat Riley wants it that way. Nice story with the Pacers and all, and Indiana is also fun to watch, but the Heat have had enough. Fortunately, Bron and Wade can beat the Pacers on their own. Unfortunately, they can't beat the Western Conference champion without some serious contributions from their supporting cast. AND unfortunately, their supporting cast sucks ass. When did Battier turn into a corpse? Haslem needed a laceration above his eye to wake up and contribute. Miller and Jones, seriously? I actually like Chalmers when he shows up. Losing Bosh KILLED them. Pat Riley has been sleeping at the wheel for 2 years with these zombies and getting role players is the easiest part of his job.

    Who can win the title? Not the Sixers, Pacers or Celtics.

    I will say that I cannot wait to watch Charles Barkley in San Antonio these next few days/weeks

    Lakers done.

    Now the Heat needs to flame out and be done.

    Love seeing Kobe and the Lakers get destroyed. The Thunder-Spurs series winner should be the NBA Champs as they are clearly the two best teams in the league. Love my Pacers but if they lose tonight they are in deep trouble.

    Same here. I do wonder, tho....what would the lakers have looked like with Chris Paul in the mix? No excuses...they got their rightful exit.

    Guess I will pull for San Antonio and Indiana to make the finals since the Bulls are out of it.

    Watching the Sixers - Celtics series is downright depressing.

    I'm actually pretty satisfied -- Sixers taking the Celts to game 7 -- I'll take that.

    Agreed.

    4-1 vs. the Thunder and 4-1 vs. the Heat/Celtics = losing a couple of games.

    I don't follow too close but I listen to sports talk radio quite a bit during the week. I always have to roll my eyes when I hear the talking heads talk about how such and such series is OVER everytime the home team goes 2-0....as if it's impossible for the other team to come back. Then low-and-behold the other team wins the next 2 games...tomorrow all the talk will be about how Miami (if they lose tonight) and S.A. "must win" game 5 and how they are on the ropes...blah blah blah.

    Both series are 2-2 and the NBA and TV have to be happy that each will go at least six games.

    Both series will go 7, and the home team will win the 7th games. Then, the Spurs and Heat will go 7, and the home team, Spurs will win the 7th game. No more road wins for any team in the rest of the remaining playoff games. you heard it here.
