James Jones off the dribble ijfdpofjdpojf what?
Microcosm of Charlotte’s style that last sequence: Kemba drives wildly, misses, and yet three guys are back on D.
James Jones switched onto Kemba Walker is not going to work.
Gerald Henderson sat on that drop step.
Miami’s Haslem starting lineup struggles again.
THE PASS BACK TO JAMES JONES
Henderson’s next up on LeBron. Curious to see how this plays out. This is probably Charlotte’s best offensive lineup but can it defend.
Making Jefferson guard Bosh with his current mobility is cruel.
Beautiful set to get LeBron in the post. It’s going to be tough for Charlotte to prevent those duck-ins with Jefferson’s lack of mobility
Big reason Charlotte’s offense has picked up as the season’s progressed: McRoberts is more willing to take that wing three.
Al’s been dinged up for a couple weeks now. Remember that he went out in the regular-season finale.
Appears that Erik Spoelstra was serious with the whole “Rashard Lewis in the rotation” thing. Might want to stop that.
Hoping the best for Al Jefferson. This Bobcats lineup is … yikes.
Kemba’s definitely not going to be afraid of this stage.
Dallas already played its first weird card with the switches. How many does it have left? Big-time missed opportunity.
Tremendous Spurs D. This is why they’re a decent basketball team
Mavs go zone for the first time today, I think. That seems like the next Rick Carlisle weird card.
Holy Kawhi Leonard length, Part II.
Kawhi Leonard’s length, holy wow.
If Mavs keep doing that, Kawhi will keep going under ball screens and daring Monta to hit a jumper.
Nothing’s working for the Spurs all day and they are still in it because Tim Duncan put them on his back.
Really surprised Pop went back to his bench after they struggled so much in the first half.
… and now Devin Harris comes in. Chess match continues.
Smart move to put Manu in. Nowhere for Dallas to hide Calderon defensively.
I’m not sure why the Spurs are trying to milk that Kawhi mismatch so much. Plays right into Dallas’ hands.
Mavs playing really well with the Calderon/Ellis combo on the floor is a problem for the Spurs.
Man the zoo is great.
Like there … how often do the Spurs normally post up Leonard? Diaw was forced into an awkward shot because he wasn’t sure where to be.
Really think all this switching is unnerving the Spurs. They’re used to flowing through their offense freely. Switching forces them to think
Parker can score at will against Dallas, but if he scored 40 and the rest of the Spurs are held in check, think Dallas will take that.
I like Devin Harris, over-eager shooting and all. He’s aggressive and Dallas often needs that.
To: Devin Harris From: San Antonio Spurs Subject: Jump shot party, RSVP to Evite.
Devin Harris should and will play a lot in this series.
Think Carlisle needs to go to Brandan Wright quickly. He’ll do better on these switches than Dalembert.
This is really something. Carlisle starting with guerrilla tactics just to prevent San Antonio from running its offense.
Rick Carlisle being weird already. Marion starting on Parker, freely switching pick and rolls even if Dalembert’s stuck on Tony.
That was fantastic, TNT folks.

Joakim Noah, still distraught after losing his mentor, didn't talk before shootaround. Left court after long workout & said, "I can't do it"
I thought this was cool when he wore a Blackhawks jersey but the MJ statue is already in uniform http://t.co/sTHYUBucDC
No he's not playing tonight thank goodness. http://t.co/6rmCxTNMzn
Jesus died for the salvation of us all... And on the third day, he was risen !! Happy Easter.
Thank God for all of His blessings and for allowing us to see another day !!
There’s a reason very few teams that make a run after being down by 25 points rarely finish it.
That release was soooooo quick. How did Durant dip so low and still get that shot off?
Wow, Grizz go ultra small. This is really interesting.
Caron Butler dunked, then fell 10 feet backwards afterwards. Flew a little too close to the sun.
Biiiig spot for Ed Davis. I’m not sure I’d trust him in this spot, but Joerger does.
Gasol playing the passing lane on that curl like that reminds me of last year’s series.
Tony Allen’s really jamming Durant’s legs.
Thunder wasted half the shot clock getting into that set.
No question OKC is a spurt team. When the other team is scoring on them, they can’t run and their half-court offense can be rough
First “THERE YA GO” of the game.
When Ibaka does something like that, makes everyone else think an extra split second before shooting near him. Udrih’s blown J, for example
James Johnson just jumped sideways on that Durant three. Rough start for him.
OKC’s pick and roll defense is over its midseason swoon.
James Johnson comes in, loses Caron Butler in transition, yields a wide-open three.
I’m sure teams miss more “uncontested” looks against OKC than anyone else. The threat of their length spooks teams.
OKC is like “Please, attack the basket, Tony Allen. We’ll make sure you have an easy path before we stuff you."
Durant could not have given less of a f*** that Tony Allen popped open for that jumper.
Ideally, Dave Joerger gives James Johnson a shot on Durant instead of relying on Prince. Not sure that happens, though.
I’m not sure 2014 Randolph can dominate OKC’s frontcourt like 2011 Randolph did, which is why I think this is a shorter series than most do
So far, road teams are 3-0 in NBA playoffs
Larry Bird is looking like he wishes he could suit up & take care of business his doggone self

Only thing IND has found success with today is making Jeff Teague look like the 1984 version of Isiah Thomas
Mahinmi did all he could there. The Pacers just don’t have an answer for Pero Antic.
The 84 is a much bigger issue than the 68.
Amazing that Mahinmi is jumping out so high on these pick and rolls. That’s 100% the opposite of Indiana’s default defensive strategy.
