Portland looked good against Golden State today, but the Warriors played lock-down defense down the stretch to pull out the win.  Draymond Green and Kevin Durant lived up to the team name.

Harden was a beast in game 1's drubbing of OKC.  I'm really happy for him.

Kawhi Leonard had a postseason career-high 37 points and added 11 rebounds, and San Antonio beat the Memphis Grizzlies 96-82 on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in their first-round series.  Leonard finished 9 for 14 from the field and was 19 for 19 on free throws. Leonard attempted more free throws than Memphis had as a team, which infuriated Memphis coach Dave Fizdale.

"...I'm not going to let them treat us that way. I know (Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has) got pedigree and I'm a young rookie, but they are not going to rook us. That's unacceptable, that was unprofessional. My guys dug in that game and earned the right to be in that game, and they did not even give us a chance.''


The stat-laden rant makes a pretty good case:  http://www.commercia...refs/100590826/

“Zach Randolph, the most rugged guy in the game, had zero free throws," Fizdale said, his voice booming. “But somehow, Kawhi Leonard had 19 free throws. First half, we shot 19 shots in the paint and we had six free throws. They shot 11 times in the paint and they had 23 free throws. I'm not a numbers guy, but that doesn't seem to add up. Overall, 35 times we shot the ball in the paint. We had 15 free throws for the game. They shot 18 times in the paint and had 32 free throws. Kawhi shot more free throws than our whole team. Explain it to me.”

Day 4 of the 2017 NBA playoffs is in the books, and the surprising Chicago Bulls are up 2-0 on the No. 1 seed Boston Celtics. It's the second time in NBA history an eight seed has gone up 2-0 on a one seed — and that's just one thing we learned on Tuesday.

Golden State putting the hurt on the Blazers in 3rdQ of game 2.  Up 25...I'm going to bed.

Congrats to Houston for their game 2 win.

Great, great game 3 between OKC & Houston tonight.  Houston battled back from being ten down late to tie it up in the final minute. Just couldn't get it done in the end.

Or could they...?  OKC's Westbrook just missed his front-end free throw...  1pt game w/ 8 seconds to go...

Amazing game 4 between San Antonio and Memphis tonight.  Memphis got the overtime win on a last-second shot by Gasol.

And Golden State has just come back from down by 16 to go ahead by two in the third quarter.  Some great playoff basketball!

In other playoff news...

Cavs sweep the Pacers, taking the series 4-0.  The Celtics, who dropped the first two games at home, come back to even the series 2-2 by beating the Bulls twice in Chicago.
