Wade's got chronic injury problems that are - at best - going to nag throughout his career, and he and LBJ can't both play their complete game at the same time. Wade's injury history is the only thing I would balk at if I were the Nets.

Let's not pop the champagne just yet. They have the Pacers coming up...

That said, given that the 3-seed is as far as Neptune, I hope they land the 3-seed or, in Chicago's bracket rather than Miami's. Miami is the team to beat out East. Chicago v Boston will be a slow, grind-it-out, defense on every possession kind of series. It'll be won more on rebounds and turnovers than anything else. It'll give Boston a chance.

On the other hand, I can't believe how I upset I was last night when the Clippers lost to the Lakers. The Lakers upcoming road trip is going to make or break their season. Either they galvanize, or freefall.

The East sucks.

I don't know if I'll ever get tired of the Lakers losing. Variety is the spice of life, and they've found a different way to do it 9 times already. Truth be told, I feel bad for Mike Brown. He's doing right by job.

He has to put Pau in the high post as a distributor because he's the best passer on the team. Also, he's the only one who can consistently hit the open 18-footer for when teams rush Kobe or Bynum.

They still refuse to play defense, though. And it looks like it's eating him alive in every interview. Come playoffs, they are going to get destroyed. That said, I'm sure Kupchak is going to make a move. But unless it's Howard, who can clean up so much defense singlehandedly, it won't be enough for them this season.

Wow, I thought that the Celtics had the Cavs' number last night, but that was quite a comeback. Fun to watch Irving hit that game winner. Even more fun to watch the team defense and hustle that made the moment possible down the stretch in the 4th quarter.

Irving's a freak.

That said, epic meltdown by the Celtics.

They were a bit due after the run they've had. Honestly, I don't expect the rematch to be in the Cavs' favor tomorrow night.

Raptors beat Deron Williams for the first time in 15 meetings last night, blowing out the Nets by 21 points. Also it's the first time the Raptors won a road trip (5+ games) in 10 frickin' years, going 3-2. They also beat the Nets without their 2 leading scorers in Andrea Bargnani and Leandro Barbosa. Oh and to top it off they beat the Suns and Jazz who both have beaten them more then 12 consecutive times (going back to the Deron Williams point).

Oh the dark days. Also we are almost tied with the Knicks in the standings and I think that's funny. Hopefully they start losing again soon. I want Harrison Barnes or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist!!

Blake Griffin with the filthiest-dirtiest dunk all year. I think it even beats out Bron Brons from last night on John Lucas. Dizzam!

Kyrie is going to be so good. He finishes so well already, and he'll only improve. And Verejao has been playing out of his mind. If Gilbert can use those two as a core, he has the makings of a good team.

He still won't win a title before LeBron, though.

Man, what a bunch of horseshit. Ref at half court calls a goaltend that he can't really see, gives OKC the tie, and they win it in overtime. Both teams played hard, and it was really close, but Portland should have had the win there.

Goaltending is based on the arc of the ball vs where/when the player catches the ball.
It's something that can be measured from a distance. So, I see no problem with a ref at half court making that call.

That being said, in the waning minutes of a game unless it's completly egregious refs should put the whistle in their pockets.

The call was that the ball hit the glass before the block. It would have been exceptionally hard to see from half court, and that ref should never make that call. Portland got a win taken away from them, but I don't think this is gonna kill their playoff chances or anything so what can ya do.

No Love for Kevin Love from the NBA:



I wonder how many games he'll be suspended. Because you know that was clearly unintentional.

EDIT: He got 2 games for his 'stomp.'
