James Jones off the dribble ijfdpofjdpojf what?

Mike Prada

Microcosm of Charlotte’s style that last sequence: Kemba drives wildly, misses, and yet three guys are back on D.

Mike Prada

James Jones switched onto Kemba Walker is not going to work.

Mike Prada

Gerald Henderson sat on that drop step.

Mike Prada

Miami’s Haslem starting lineup struggles again.

Mike Prada

THE PASS BACK TO JAMES JONES

Mike Prada

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.

Mike Prada

Making Jefferson guard Bosh with his current mobility is cruel.

Mike Prada

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

Michael Lee

How do the #wizards & CHI match up? Check it out here: wapo.st/1r59UNi

Mike Prada

Big reason Charlotte’s offense has picked up as the season’s progressed: McRoberts is more willing to take that wing three.

Mike Prada

Al’s been dinged up for a couple weeks now. Remember that he went out in the regular-season finale.

Mike Prada

Appears that Erik Spoelstra was serious with the whole “Rashard Lewis in the rotation” thing. Might want to stop that.

Mike Prada

Hoping the best for Al Jefferson. This Bobcats lineup is … yikes.

Mike Prada

Kemba’s definitely not going to be afraid of this stage.

Mike Prada

Dallas already played its first weird card with the switches. How many does it have left? Big-time missed opportunity.

Mike Prada

Tremendous Spurs D. This is why they’re a decent basketball team

Mike Prada

Mavs go zone for the first time today, I think. That seems like the next Rick Carlisle weird card.

Mike Prada

Holy Kawhi Leonard length, Part II.

Mike Prada

Kawhi Leonard’s length, holy wow.

Mike Prada

. @ebehoops mentioned it in our Spurs capsule: Parker always spins left to right.

Mike Prada

If Mavs keep doing that, Kawhi will keep going under ball screens and daring Monta to hit a jumper.

Mike Prada

Nothing’s working for the Spurs all day and they are still in it because Tim Duncan put them on his back.

Mike Prada

Here’s the video of Gregg Popovich’s interview with Craig Sager Jr. sbn.to/1mspjYG

Mike Prada

Really surprised Pop went back to his bench after they struggled so much in the first half.

Mike Prada

… and now Devin Harris comes in. Chess match continues.

Mike Prada

Smart move to put Manu in. Nowhere for Dallas to hide Calderon defensively.

Mike Prada

I’m not sure why the Spurs are trying to milk that Kawhi mismatch so much. Plays right into Dallas’ hands.

Mike Prada

Mavs playing really well with the Calderon/Ellis combo on the floor is a problem for the Spurs.

Mike Prada

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.

Mike Prada

Really think all this switching is unnerving the Spurs. They’re used to flowing through their offense freely. Switching forces them to think

Mike Prada

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.

Mike Prada

I like Devin Harris, over-eager shooting and all. He’s aggressive and Dallas often needs that.

Mike Prada

Devin Harris' offense in that first quarter. twitpic.com/e1nlkt

Mike Prada

To: Devin Harris From: San Antonio Spurs Subject: Jump shot party, RSVP to Evite.

Mike Prada

Devin Harris should and will play a lot in this series.

Mike Prada

Think Carlisle needs to go to Brandan Wright quickly. He’ll do better on these switches than Dalembert.

Mike Prada

This is really something. Carlisle starting with guerrilla tactics just to prevent San Antonio from running its offense.

Mike Prada

Rick Carlisle being weird already. Marion starting on Parker, freely switching pick and rolls even if Dalembert’s stuck on Tony.

Mike Prada

That was fantastic, TNT folks.

Bradley Beal said he's already visualized making his first shot in CHI. Was it a 3-pointer? A long jumper? "A layup," BB said #wizards

Michael Lee

#wizards return to playoffs was keyed by John Wall's hard work/dedication to get better & trust of his teammates: bitly.com/1mnlBgn

Mike Prada

There’s a reason very few teams that make a run after being down by 25 points rarely finish it.

Mike Prada

That release was soooooo quick. How did Durant dip so low and still get that shot off?

Mike Prada

Wow, Grizz go ultra small. This is really interesting.

Mike Prada

Caron Butler dunked, then fell 10 feet backwards afterwards. Flew a little too close to the sun.

Mike Prada

Biiiig spot for Ed Davis. I’m not sure I’d trust him in this spot, but Joerger does.

Mike Prada

Gasol playing the passing lane on that curl like that reminds me of last year’s series.

Mike Prada

Tony Allen’s really jamming Durant’s legs.

Mike Prada

Thunder wasted half the shot clock getting into that set.

Mike Prada

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

Mike Prada

First “THERE YA GO” of the game.

Mike Prada

When Ibaka does something like that, makes everyone else think an extra split second before shooting near him. Udrih’s blown J, for example

Mike Prada

James Johnson just jumped sideways on that Durant three. Rough start for him.

Mike Prada

OKC’s pick and roll defense is over its midseason swoon.

Mike Prada

James Johnson comes in, loses Caron Butler in transition, yields a wide-open three.

Mike Prada

I’m sure teams miss more “uncontested” looks against OKC than anyone else. The threat of their length spooks teams.

Mike Prada

OKC is like “Please, attack the basket, Tony Allen. We’ll make sure you have an easy path before we stuff you."

Mike Prada

Durant could not have given less of a f*** that Tony Allen popped open for that jumper.

Mike Prada

Ideally, Dave Joerger gives James Johnson a shot on Durant instead of relying on Prince. Not sure that happens, though.

Mike Prada

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

Michael Lee

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

“I’ve seen you guys be good. Come onnnnnnnn. Be good. Pleeeeeeease” -Frank Vogel, translated.

Michael Lee

Only thing IND has found success with today is making Jeff Teague look like the 1984 version of Isiah Thomas

Mike Prada

Mahinmi did all he could there. The Pacers just don’t have an answer for Pero Antic.

Mike Prada

The 84 is a much bigger issue than the 68.

Mike Prada

Amazing that Mahinmi is jumping out so high on these pick and rolls. That’s 100% the opposite of Indiana’s default defensive strategy.
