watching game on TNT again now. not sure why Dunleavy was so open, so often

Pete Pranica

Agreed. If you're a bad FT shooter...practice, don't get bailed out by a rule. twitter.com/insidehoops/st…

Dan Woike

This is the key to DJ's DPOY argument -- can totally alter decision making. It's what players/scouts say. twitter.com/DreamShakeSBN/…

Rick Noland

still think it's going 7

Rick Noland

this series goes 1-1, both teams have reason to believe. bulls home-court advantage, cavs get JR back.

Dan Woike

Clipper fun stat: Austin Rivers leads the team in 3FG% (.462) so far this postseason.

Dan Woike

Clipper fun stat: Through eight games in the playoffs, Blake Griffin (8.1) is averaging more assists per game than Chris Paul (7.9).

Rick Noland

don't overthink. play your best players. @Tristan Thompson is one of your best players available

Trevor Ariza on Game 2: “We are going to see how tough we are and what type of team we are."

Sean Highkin

Game 7 of Bulls/Cavs and Rockets/Clippers would be the same day as the Mad Men series finale.

Rick Noland

love how Kyrie has adapted to life with LeBron, but didn't fight very hard to get over screens in Game 1

Jonathan Feigen

Ariza: "We're going to see how tough we are and what type of team we are. I have the utmost confidence that wer'e going to respond."

Dan Woike

As of tonight: Blake Griffin's playoff stats -- 24.4 ppg, 13.3 rpg, 8.1 apg, 46.8 FG%, 76.6 FT%, 1.4 stl, 1.3 blk

Rick Noland

oddly, cavs plus 4 with james jones on floor. at least played D

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets pfs played well vs Dallas, awful tonight. Smith and Jones a combined 4 of 18 w/ 8r. First time in playoffs really missed Motiejunas.

Jimmy Spencer

My favorite part of the playoffs is reacting heavily to every single game. Seriously, it’s my favorite part. (i AM being serious.)

Rick Noland

cavs minus 20 in 16 min Mike Miller played

Kurt Helin

CP3 who? Clippers come from behind to take Game 1 from Rockets on road dlvr.it/9gc0Jg

Jonathan Feigen

Doc Rivers made it very clear if Chris Paul is cleared Wednesday he'll play. Indicated result tonight won't be a factor.

Jenny Dial Creech

McHale: “You either get the thing done or you don’t get it done and we didn’t get it done and they kicked our a**. That’s the bottom line."

Jenny Dial Creech

Even without Chris Paul, battle-tested Clippers remain 'mentally tough' blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

Josh Smith: "Offensively, we tried to play a lot of hero ball instead of putting trust in one another. It will be different on Wednesday."

Rick Noland

if Cavs win G2, can start kyrie, shump,JR and LJ with Moz. in meantime, start TT to win that game

Jenny Dial Creech

Poor ball movement, turnovers too much for rested Rockets to overcome blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Ailene Voisin

Padres disappointing again. San Diego community used to it, upgraded roster notwithstanding. Giants doing what what they do, stay relevant.

Amin Elhassan

LMAOOOOOOO ERNIE WITH THE #hatehardapproved BLAST

Jonathan Feigen

James Harden: "I'm the catalyst, especially on offense. I've got to do a better job -- nine turnovers against a team don't cut it."

Ailene Voisin

Sounds like Gregg Popovich has no intention of retiring. Would not bail on Spurs during retooling. Can only plant "so many tomatoes."

Last note on this: This is why I note so many idiot Tweet responses. They think they can intimidate people with that stuff. Nope, not me.

Calvin Watkins

Josh Smith the team played too much hero ball. Also said McHale was upset.

Calvin Watkins

McHale could be heard yelling at his team through the closed door after the game based on people waiting around.

Peter Vecsey

Barkley is so full of shit. Suns had Rockets down 2-0 going back 2 Phoenix & he partied late into nights. Colangelo didn't speak 2 him 4 yrs

Alex Kennedy

Over the last 3 games, @Matt Barnes has averaged 15 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.7 steals, 1.3 blocks. Clippers won all 3 of those contests.

McHale: "We didn't get it done. They kicked our ass." #Rockets

Noah on the money! Hate when people (Shaq) say a team "stole" a game. The Bulls beat an inferior team...

Classy! This discussion is at the highest level now. twitter.com/Ror925/status/…

Harden: "All of us are frustrated. We didn’t play well at all."

4 Straight, 7 straight at home and back at .500 after 4-10 start. #SFGiants

Peter Vecsey

Clearly, Barkley didn't have the mental champion focus like Smith did when he stayed out late up 2-0 in consecutive seasons against Rockets

Dave Mason

And the Giants are back at .500. Remember that 4-10 start?

Melissa Rohlin

Even without Chris Paul, Clippers beat Rockets, 117-101, in Game 1 latimes.com/sports/clipper…

Ethan Strauss

From the MVP press conference: Warriors won 67 games because of Curry. Also, it's the other way around too espn.go.com/blog/nba/post/…

Dave Mason

Belt lost it in the lights?! Come on, man!

Jenny Dial Creech

James Harden finished tonight with 20 points and 12 assists. But he also had nine turnovers.

Ryen Russillo

New Orleans blowing a lead in a series they were going to lose anyway and the beating the Bucks took are not worse than this.

David Hardisty

McHale upset, said Rocket turnovers were 7th grade level: "They kicked our ass. That's the bottom line."

Peter Edmiston

Some teams lose their starting PG and have to face the MVP. Other teams lose their starting PG and get to face, well, the other dude.
