LeBron & Co's win makes for a great story.  Their sustained defense was really a remarkable achievement against a deep and talented Golden State team.  Great shooters are less great when they have to work hard for every single shot, and it seems that Cleveland realized this and committed to playing 28 minutes of lock-down "D".  And to boot, they made their shots when they had to, whether from outside or by grinding it inside.  They were the better team, and congrat's to them!

P.S.  LeBron's emotional response at the end was refreshing.

and the current NBA TV contract....

Anybody catch the great San Antonio comeback tonight vs. OK City?  Down 20 at one point, San Antonio held the lead for only 37 seconds the entire game.  :lol:


It's how you finish that matters!

Super happy for the success Houston is having this season.  Coach Mike D'Antoni's secret formula is a simple one:  As much as possible, work the offense through your best player, in this case, James Harden.  He's managed to do this while simultaneously giving Harden more time on the bench.

D'Antoni's new strategy for the Rockets "puts the ball in Harden’s hands for roughly three more minutes per game, even as he plays nearly two fewer minutes overall."

Man...the Eastern Conference is coming down to the wire...

http://www.nba.com/a...playoff-picture
  • The Pacers took care of business against the lottery-bound Sixers and strengthened their own playoff chances in the process. They could still find themselves out of the top eight, but it's a long shot. They would have to lose their finale AND see Chicago and Miami win to miss the postseason. Their most optimistic outlook? Finishing sixth if the Bucks beat Boston, and the Hawks lose to both Charlotte and Indiana this week.
  • The Bulls were similarly business-like on Monday, beating Orlando by a whopping 47 points. They already have 41 losses, however, which opens up a couple roads out of the playoffs entirely. Here's the gist: if they win, they're in. If they win AND Indiana loses, Chicago climbs to seventh.
  • Milwaukee's 89-79 win over the Hornets has the Bucks sniffing the fifth seed, but only if A) they win their finale at Boston and B) Atlanta loses BOTH of their last two games. If anything else happens, Milwaukee will be locked into sixth.
  • The Clippers and Jazz remain in a deadlock for the fourth seed (and home court in the first round) with identical 50-31 records and one game remaining. Los Angeles, however, holds the tiebreaker. Utah needs to win its last contest (against the Spurs) and hope L.A. drops its final meeting with Sacramento.
