    That was a tough game to watch. The refs blew a ton of whistles in the fourth, extending the game by foreverrrrrrrr.

    I don't even care who wins anymore, I am just enjoying all these great games.

    i just listened to part of the simmons + klosterman podcast and klosterman argued that the NBA playoffs would be improved by going single-elimination. I like klosterman usually, but that was irritating as all hell. This is the best playoffs in ages and you want to take away the vast majority of these games??? How does that make any sense?

    I know i will be dodging rotten fruit, but perhaps it's because Los Ladies aren't involved.

    Another nail biting defensive battle tonight.

    And the playoffs are not going to ever be single game elimination. The league and the owners make money on more games, not less. And the solution isn't to expand the field like the NCAA did either. The lower seeds are already so watered down (notable exceptions, most recently Memphis) that expanding the playoff field makes the regular season pointless.

    As it is, I think basketball playoffs are perfect. I watch march madness to be entertained by cinderella teams, and the NBA playoffs to see drag-out heavyweight battles where the best team will win

    Kenny's rocking the seersucker...

    For a "gay cowboy" Bosh is playing better than Pau-Pau.

    It's one game? No it's called matchups. Rebounds and half court offense are Heat's nightmare. Don't be surprised if there's a sweep.

    Don't worry Bosh isn't putting up another 30 pt game. He'll see his 1 for 18 again last time he stepped into the madhouse.

    You were saying?

    why does Bosh face the press alone at the post game press conference while Wade and James are together? I thought they were the big 3, not big 2 + 1?
