Subject: NBA Playoffs 2010, anyone?

Written By: nupur on 04/18/10 at 2:37 am

Thought I'd show the Sports Zone some love by starting a thread on the 2010 NBA playoffs. The postseason officially started today (4/17) and here are the results so far:

EAST:

(1)Cleveland Cavaliers 96 - (8)Chicago Bulls 83
Cavs lead 1-0

(3)Atlanta Hawks 102 - (6)Milwaukee Bucks 92
Bucks lead 1-0

(4)Boston Celtics 85 - (5)Miami Heat 76
Celts lead 1-0

WEST:

(4)Denver Nuggets 126 - (5)Utah Jazz 113
Nuggets lead 1-0


Cleveland beat Chicago pretty easily. I would love to see the Bulls pull through this one and upset the Cavs and Lebron, but I don't think that's very likely.
Boston beat Miami in a relatively close game, in which the Heat gave up a 12 or 14 point lead in the 3rd quarter, allowing the Celtics to get back in the game. There was a skirmish at the end of the fourth quarter after Paul Pierce got hurt (he came back into the game shortly after, though). The fight was centered around Quentin Richardson and Kevin Garnett, the latter of which was given two separate technical fouls and ejected from the game. Garnett could be suspended for game 2 of the series (but I personally hope not, as I am rooting for Boston all the way!!).
By the score, it looks like Denver had an easy time with Utah. I didn't watch that game, though, so I can't say much about it.

More action coming tomorrow (4/18)!

EAST:

(2)Orlando Magic - (7)Charlotte Bobcats

WEST:

(1)L.A. Lakers - (8)Oklahoma City
(2)Dallas Mavericks - (7)San Antonio Spurs
(3)Phoenix Suns - (6) Portland Trailblazers

Atlanta beat the Bucks today and lead that series 2-0.

Celtics are currently crushing Heat -- it's 101-71 with 3 1/2 minutes left in the 4th.

Phoenix is beating Portland at the moment. It's almost halftime for that game.

WOW! Paul Pierce just hit a buzzer beater against the Heat to win the game by 2. Dwyane Wade seems to have gotten hurt on Miami's last play. Hopefully it's just a muscle cramp and nothing more serious.

Also, Mavs and San Antonio are up next.

Yeah I know what you are saying I was surprised to see him in a uniform playing when I first tuned in too the game yesterday. I was like isn;t he supposed to be out for the rest of the playoffs? Anyway, it was to see big men like Marcus Camby and LaMarcus Aldridge making jumpers from the foul line area or around that area in yesterdays Phoenix-Portland because you don;t see big men making jumpers from that range anymore.

Looks like they limited Roy's minutes to 26-ish, which I suppose is reasonable? He was able to contribute a solid 10 points during that time. But, still, if Portland makes it into later rounds (they're down 3-2 games right now), I'm sure they'll have him play more minutes, and I don't think that's very safe for his knee.

Suns and Spurs are playing each other again in the playoffs again? I can;t wait this is must see TV when you get a chance to see these teams play each other. This is one of the best rivaliries in the past decade in the NBA. I picked the Suns to go to the NBA Finals against Orlando but I don't know now because the Spurs always play the Suns so well. The 2008 first round of the playoffs when the Suns and Spurs played in Game 1 of that playoff series that was one of the best games I ;ve ever watched. The Spurs in that game trailed by 16 points in the second quarter but sent the game into a overtime on a 3-point bank shot by Tim Duncan and the Spurs won in double overtime 117-115. I remember the Spurs Manu Ginoboli scoring like 38 points in the game. He was great in that game and he scored the winning points on a driving lay-up too when the score was tied at 115 a piece I think.

Yes! The series starts tomorrow and I can't wait! Although all "experts" at ESPN have the Cavs beating the Celtics  ::), I don't know about that! ;)

If the Celtics can contain players like Varejao and Jamison, and Pierce can play as great as he did against Miami in the first round, it should be quite a good match. There's always LBJ to worry about, but the regular season series was a 2-2 split (with one of the Celt's losses being without Paul Pierce), so I say we have a chance!

It seems like the West match-ups are always good ones! That's probably because teams in the West generally have closer records to each other than those in the East. This looks like an odd match-up because the Suns are known for playing with speed, while the Spurs generally play at a slower pace to allow for Duncan post game. I don't watch games from the Western Conference often (usually because they air so late in the East), but I suppose this series will go to whichever team can control the pace to their liking. I'm hoping for the Suns to pull through on this one, mostly because I have a personal thing against Manu Ginobili (not that I know him personally, it's just that something about him really bugs me -- perhaps all of his flopping?) ;D.

Is that why he gets injured all the time is because he flops? I never even put those 2 factors together with him(the injuries and the flopping.) It seems like every year I come on these boards when the NBA playoffs start I always ask on these boards is Manu gonna be healthy? A few times I thought he was on the cusp of being a great player and than each time I'm ready to call him great he gets injured and than he is back to being a good player after he returns from an injury.

Of course, flopping is not the only thing Manu does. Admittedly, he plays hard, and that's where his injuries come from. Still, his flopping is undeniable . . .

Now, Manu is not the only guy in the NBA that flops, but he's still pretty well-known for it around the league.

It sucks to be a Jazz fan over the last 20 years in the playoffs we have been burned by Kobe, Jordan, Kevin Johnson, Hakeem. We even lost to RUN TMC(i.e. the 88-89 Golden State Warriors) in the first round of the playoffs when the Jazz were a young and up and-coming team.

I'm shocked the Suns are up on the Spurs 3-0 now. That guy "Gragac" scored 23 points in the 4th quarter alone in Game 3 alone.. The Spurs led Game 3 39-21 in the second quarter but couldn;t hold that lead. I think the difference between this Suns team and other Suns teams is they have good role players(Grant Hill, Channing Frye, Dragac, and Jared Dudley.) They really didn't have those kinda role players  or that combonation of role players in past years, they also have Robin Lopez who's injured. I think they will miss Lopez greatly if they face the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals because it will give the Lakers such an advantage on the inside with Pau Gasol, and Andrew Bynum. Look what is happening to the Jazz against the Lakers without Mehmet Okur, they are getting manhandled by the Lakers by the basket.

I',m hearing people on ESPN saying the Orlando Magic could beat the Lakers. I don;t know about that.

It will be a sad time for the Cavaliers fans and organization if the Cavs don't bring it for game 6, especially since Lebron has the option to go elsewhere for the next season. Side note -- it's kind of strange how this is the only series going on at the moment.

Yep, since the other three were sweeps. Kinda like how the 2007 MLB Division Series was. Three of the DSes were sweeps, while the remaining one (Indians and Yankes) went four games, with Cleveland winning it three games to one.

Back to the NBA. I'd like for this one to go seven games.

This years Cavs team was just basically a more modern day of the version 1988-1989 Atlanta Hawks give or take. Lebron James was Dominique Wilkins, Shaq was Moses Malone(both were /are in the twilight of their careers), Mo Williams was Doc Rivers, Z was Jon Koncack.

I was shocked though the Cavs lost to the Celtics. I thought the Cavs would get beat by the Orlando Magic in the Conference Finals  just like last year. It looks like the Celtics are playing defense like the 2007-2008 team did that won the NBA championship that season. I thought the Celtics were too old to compete for an NBA championship this year, looks like I was wrong.

The funny thing was that I attended my cousin's d├ębut, but she held it while Game 7 of the NBA Finals was playing. So the entire party hall was glued to the large viewing screens that were airing the game, and since the 4th quarter was running rather slow, she willingly let us watch it to the end of regulation before the party would continue. How nice of her, lol! Although I disliked the ending; WTF Boston? You had it!
