    Definitely. Best series going. Last nights game was very entertaining. The OKC series was good until that fuckhead injured Westbrook.

    NBA needs go back to five-game first-round's. Some of this bullshit is just painful.

    Westbrook would still be injured even if it was a 5 game first round

    My comment was not connecting Westbrooke and five-game series. They were separate thoughts.

    I don't believe we need seven-game series in the first round, for example who really believes that Milwaukee would beat Miami? Or LA over San Antonio? These one versus eight series are really not necessary, almost worthy of just having a bye.

    Kinda like the Grizz / San Antonio series a few years ago? Everyone loves a Cinderella story. A healthy LA would have at least been an interesting series against San Antonio.

    I do not disagree with the idea of having a 5-game series though.

    Why are people overlooking the Bulls out of the East? Heat are the clear favorites but the Bulls have beat them and could even see Rose come back for the next or final series.

    Also, every team needs some Nate Robinson. He's been perfect for the Bulls.

    Rose is soft.
    He won't be back until next season at the earliest

    I hate Nate Robinson. Classic small man personality, magnified x100 because he's spent most of his life among unnaturally tall people. But that was one of the best quarters of the last...20 years? The only better performances I can remember were submitted by guys named Miller, Bird and Jordan

    unbelievably kind rim on that Durant 3... Houston couldn't catch a break. This 1st Round has not been the best... although there have been a few good games... weird playoffs this year.

    Fair suspension. He deliberately chopped that elbow into an uppercut like he was trying to knock Terry out.

    He received a flagrant 2 and walked away from the play after it happened

    Terry was literally clubbing at his groin, if the foul on Terry would have been called, as it should have, JR would not have done what he did.

    It looked to me like the equivalent of throwing a punch (albeit with an elbow). He must have barely connected because Terry got right back up. The league has a well documented precedent for being heavy handed with suspensions for any actions that look like a player assaulting another.

    I agree with you that Terry did something to provoke it because after he makes that swipe, JR immediately just lashes out unthinkingly. I also agree that it won't really affect this series. Celtics look completely demoralized.

    JR's been verified to actually have a metal "pipe" for a penis, so terry probably injured himself during the clubbing. The knicks look legit this year... not finals bound legit (they'll still probably be almost swept by the heat) but ECF legit.
