Re: NBA General Discussion Thread

Apr 5, 2014
  • The biggest Lance-related danger (for me, anyway): In close-and-late games, when Indiana needs someone to make a play, Lance invariably shifts into “I got this” mode. Trust me — you’re not winning four straight rounds if Lance Stephenson has the “I got this” green light. Forget about Miami in Round 3. Imagine a 2-2 series in Round 1 or Round 2, with Indy struggling to keep home-court advantage in Game 5 against some overachieving underdog … and Lance says, “Hold on, guys … I GOT THIS!” Does any Pacers fan feel good about that scenario?

Bill Simmons prophecy. That's exactly what happened tonight against Toronto. Indy down four late, Stephenson throws up a circus shot at the rim that misses and on the next possession he takes a rebound the other way and misses a poorly angled layup on a fast break. Of course the Pacers lose.

This Heat / Wolves game is ridiculous. Neither team going away despite falling behind 4-5 in OT.

 

Wolves up 122-121 with 1.4 seconsd left. Miami ball.

I don't think it's really a Jordan record, but I guess it is outside of the Wilt being Wilt division.

"I knew J.R. Smith was going to have a good Green Week."

"Don't forget Larry Sanders."

 

Best exchange in ESPN history.

Indy looks so bad.... I wonder if Vogel gets fired if they get knocked out before the ECF.
