- Round 1 is in the books. All the favorites have advanced. I don’t know when the last time that has happened, but I will have to research it.
- Round two is going to be excellent. All the match ups are exciting. I am particularly interested in the east with Detroit playing Orlando and Celtics against the Cavs.
- The Cavs and the Celtics each won their regular season home games. The season record is 2-2.
- The Lakers beat Utah Jazz and have yet to lose a game in the playoffs. Victor is ecstatic.
- The Celtics avoided the biggest choke in NBA history beating the Hawks in game 7 to advance to round two. Essentially, the Celtics have to win the championship this season or it would be monumentally disappointing to the city of Boston. First the Patriots put together the most dominating regular season in NFL history and lose the championship. Now you have the Celtics with the third best record in NBA history. They have to win the title or this will only be a smidge less disappointing than the choke job the Patriots came up with this year. Could Boston handle the embarrassment for a second time in the same year?
- KG looked like a TE laying a blindside block on a corner trying to defend the double reverse. I forget who he put the pick on, but he laid his shoulder into it and leveled the poor guy.
- The defending champion San Antonio Spurs are down 1-0 against the Hornets. ESPN speculates that if SA loses game 2, it’s over! I don’t if I would take it that far, but certainly SA does not want to lose game 2!
