    If the Cavs lose today, lebron won't be owning anyone after this series.

    Refs were trying to force overtime, but LeBron was having none of it. Horrible shooting % from him (10 for 30), but he hit the one that counts the most.

    People that bet on Cavs are hurting. The line was 2 & 1/2 and LeBron's game winner looked like a 3 pointer at first. Refs said his foot was on the line, the shot was a 2,, and the Cavs won by 2.

    lol so:

    1. blatt tried to call timeout after rose hit the tying layup, then tyronn lue quickly stopped him since they didn't have any left. that's supposed to be a tech.
    2. blatt apparently drew up a play at the end where lebron was gonna inbound the ball. lebron straight overruled him and just told his team to get him the ball.

    if the cavs lose blatt's probably gonna get fired.

    The Rockets game is ugly. Took about 90 minutes to get through the first half. I had to stop watching at halftime.

    Since this is SF, I assume you guys have fully analyzed the decision to have KD wear a knit tie in those Sprint commercials. Discuss.

    I stopped at halftime and started watching GoT and Mad Men. Way more interesting.

    none of the rockets just care. laziness everywhere. if they miss a rotation or a pass they just give up. nobody runs back for transition defense. everybody leaks out to cherry pick. james harden is back to playing no defense and losing his man every time. josh smith is a travesty

    My favorite announcing moment: Reggie Muller going on for several minutes about how Jordan should be pulled from the game if he can't hit free throws, the same way you'd bench a player whose poor defense or rebounding was hurting the team. Not five minutes later, Miller starts a new conversation about how he "commends" Doc for leaving Jordan in the game.

    Here's hoping the Clips bounce the Rockets next game so that we don't have to watch them again this season.
