Only one more day till the Tourney starts. I gotta say that I think this tourney will have more upsets than usual, with alot of the mid majors playing disciplined, smart basketball. Congrats to Mount Saint Mary's by winning the honors to get rolled Friday by UNC with basically home court advantage i their favor. Is it just me or does UNC seem to always start the tournament playing somewhere in North Carolina? Anyway, GG and myself will have more analysis as the games get started tomorrow.
These guys just go Deeeeeed the hell up last night by a good defensive team in the Boston Celtics. They balled those fools like nobody's business. Boston is good folks ....and as long as the role players keep doing their part, they will win the east with no problem. AS for the Rockets....look for these guys to go from 1st to the bottom of the west with their next few games against the Hornets, Warriors and Suns all on the road.
What a game in Dallas last night. The Lakers were rolling along stomping the Mavs on their home floor when the refs decided "lets make this game interesting and not blow the whistle for the next 10 minutes"! Vlad Radmanovic dropped 21 and 10 boards making some huge shots in the 4th quarter to help hold off the Mavericks. The funniest thing about this game was the whole time the Mavs were making their run ....guess who was riding the pine? J Kidd! The run was sparked by Tyronn Lue and Dirk. I'm confused.....why did they trade for J Kidd again if Tyronn Lue is getting the key minutes down the stretch?
These guys play no defense. They might be worse than Phoenix as far as defense goes....giving up 136 to Detroit is just unacceptable when your fighting for the last playoff spot. A.I. and Melo have to lead the charge in this category.
Games to watch tonight:
Detroit @ Cleveland 8:00 PM EST
Houston @ New Orleans 8:00 PM EST
