Yep...and Beal has seriously stepped his game up. He is good.

RE: 2015 NBA Playoffs
All 5 series so far are at 2-0. The only one of them I can see turning around is the Mavs-Rockets. I'm surprised the two games so far weren't tighter but I could see Dallas sending it back at 2-2. The other 4...barely a puncher's chance now.

For tonight I think the Spurs will rebound. Even for a team that good and experienced it'd be tough to come back from 2-0 down vs. a hot Clippers team. Grizz should take care of Blazers and as long as Horford's fairly healthy the Hawks should win. That series gets very interesting if the Hawks drop this game, it will turn into a dog fight.

Well what the Clippers have going for them is that Doc isn't as clueless about how to defend San Antonio as other coaches have been in recent years. From what I remember, Boston always did well against San Antonio when Doc was coaching there, especially in the prime years of 2008-2010.

OKC fires Brooks after 7 seasons. I was not a big fan of him because he had no offensive schemes but this year I really felt sorry for the guy. This is going to be a positive though. A new coach, hopefully with a system that can run things for KD, Westbrook, incorporate Kanter into the mix and so on. The future is bright for OKC with the right coach.

^^ It took long enough to boot him.

By the way, free basketball in Lob City.

Brooks problem was his coaching skills was exposed especially when OKC lost to the Heat.

Darth was right. Spurs rebound last night taking game 2 in OT despite Parker/Manu scoring about 10 pts between them and Timmy carrying 5 fouls.

I didn't see it but it's a bad sign for the Clips that Griffin, Jordan and CP3 all seemed to have good/great games and they still lost at home. Here's to hoping the Clips bring it back to LA at 2-2 but chances are it will be 3-1.

That hack-a-Jordan is really effective. It completely takes the Clips out of their rhythm. The guy should just spend an hour everyday shooting from the stripe and this would be a non-issue.

Again, zero defense out of the Bucks. It is disappointing. If the Bulls were winning games in the mid 80's I'm fine with that, but they shouldn't be getting 100 points at will in the playoffs.

Decent comeback attempt but awful play in overtime. Awful defense on rose and when they do play defense he just flails up a wild shot and gets a bailout call.

Kidd didn't do a good job keeping the team under control in the 2nd half. You have timeouts and sometimes it's best to use them up to talk to a young team that's forgotten how to pass.

Steph Curry ain't human! Unreal shot and GS forces OT after being down 20 to start the 4th. When something like that happens it's rare the team that blew it will turn it around

Hawks go to Crooklyn & lay an egg w/ their lowest shooting % of the year. They give life to Nets who are only down 2-1 now.

Don't understand what type of play that Coach Tibs drew up for Drose.. Why not let him just drive to the basket but it was good defense by the bucks and the player hit a clutch lay up good griefNo No

Are you talking about when Rose turned the ball over? Thibs tried to get a TO but the refs didn't see it. So he trusted Rose to go down the floor and score the final bucket. Rose was practically triple teamed and he should have given the ball up when he saw the defensive wall the Bucks put up.

CP3 and co tie up the series at 2-2. Figured this would be the best series of the 1st round.
