@Amigo,
Could be you're right. So far it looks good for them tonight. Now let's see how the second half goes. Is it true that you can't buy alcohol in Utah?

You have to go to a state run liquor store. It's like your going to a Methadone clinic. All the beer at the bars is 3.2 alcohol content. 3.2 beer is called "low point" The bar tenders try to tell you it still gets you drunk. It's doesn't. It make you full, sick and waste your money. You can get "high point" at the state run liqour stores. A Pacifico cost $1.85 each. Beers are sold as single items. in the bars a restauraunts it is state law that you can only have 1 ounce per mixed drink and it is mesured by a devices all bars and restaraunts must have that connects to the bottle so you never get a good drink.

I don't go to bars.

@Amigo,
Wow, I can see why you wouldn't go to bars. Sounds pretty ridiculous.

Hey, by the way, we got a good one here! 92-91 Utah with 8:00 left! Kyle Korver is 8-8, 20 points. But wait a minute, who the hell is Kyle Korver!?

@kickycan,
Do you want the Jazz to win?

The bars REALLY suck here. Its all men and there all like pissed off tough type loser guys. It's because drinking has been criminalized so everybody does it at there house with there close freinds. But Utah is a nice place.

@Amigo,
I'm leaning towards the Lakers, but I don't really care who wins. I just want to see a good game.

Boozer's a good solid player. Underrated.

Oh my god, that rookie could have won the game for Utah there at the last second! That was a good game. Man, that close and now down 3-0. What a difference that last little tip-back could have made.

@Ragman,
Yeah, too bad almost every other game I've seen so far has been pretty damn lopsided. I actually fell asleep during the Lakers/Jazz game 4. When I woke up they were showing the highlights. I didn't miss much.

Tonight though, Cleveland/Boston...should be a good one. It BETTER be!

@kickycan,
This Celts-Cavs game was an old-fashioned beat down. In the second half, Celts outscored the Cadavers 70-44. First time ever in ANY game that I've seen him in, LeBron was exhausted and sucking winds. Rondo wore him down with his up-tempo pace. Pierce showed up and threw down.

Celts have gotten into Cadavers heads. It's all over but the crying for Cavs. LeBron will be playing elsewhere next year as he moves on to much greener pastures.

However, if things continue this way, they'll win out. The Celts will be tested mightily, as Orlando is a tough defensive team. I think Celts match up well over all, but that series is a tossup in my mind. Could be a 6 or 7 game series.

not this kid.
felt bad for the cav fans -- they got ripped off and should demand their $$ back.
the C's commandeered the game in the 2nd quarter with rondo on the bench...

@Region Philbis,
I was cautiously optimistic that Celts would squeak out a win in the last minute. In my wildest dreams I couldn't imagine Le Bron looking that bad. Doesn't it make you think about the psychology involved in winning the big ones.

Furthermore, it underscores that it's not a one-player-game - not a Rondo, not a LeBron, not Pierce, not Garnett. It takes a whole team to keep wining game-after-game if you're on the way to the Finals.

it's possible LBJ was feeling the 'this could be my last game in clevland' pressure last night.
or maybe the elbow went numb on him again...

that's been doc's mantra -- they hafta stick together and trust each other.

this series should be a lesson for teams that go all-out during the regular season to gain home-court advantage:
it won't help you win a championship if you get burned out in the process.
the team that gets and stays hot will go all the way.
the cavs look like they'd rather be pool-side...

@Region Philbis,
Of course, I agree with your assessment about teams that manage their use of the big guys down the stretch and the end of the season. But all that implies as that a team has to have the horse-power to begin with so that they can rest them and make the playoffs and not kill themselves to grab first place. For example, Celts Big 3 (really 4) may have been rested properly. Hopefully, they'll make the Finals, but Orlando has a lot to say about that one.

The tell-tale dynamic with LeBron was seeing him in the 2nd half just standing around on the perimeter watching the action. When he shot the 3-pointers, he went 0 for 4 attempts.

Theoretically, the 'wiseguys' sports-talkers said "he was probably trying to act as a decoy." To me he just looked like he was disinterested or depressed and clueless. Cleveland fans have been screwed. They just had no team around to support him. He failed to repeatedly charge at the basket himself. He opted to pass and dish off, but none of this teammates were effective offensively - not Jamison not anyone. Not enough decent shooters on that team or any that have a clue to crunch time and what to do in dire immediacy. Except lose badly!


Oops...goodbye Cadavers!
