    Chandler Parsons is tearing it up for the Rockets tonight. He's got 17 points already at the half. :cool:

    Not that it needs to be said but Durant is a beast. It's amazing how effortless his scoring comes.

    Have enjoyed watching all these Gators in the playoffs.

    Tough loss for Chandler & company.. Harden scored 27 on 28 shots. Kobe syndrome.

    That's just what they run. He is a good passer, but they want him taking a high volume of shots because most of those shots are either threes or right at the rim. He doesn't live off the elbow like Bryant. Parsons was way off in the second half, plus they couldn't get out in transition much when the whistles started blowing, and that is where CP is at his best.

    What a game between the Thunder and the Grizzlies. Heading to overtime.

    That four point play by Durant was just ridiculous. Birdesque

    He just hit a another dagger too. Then Gasol kicks the ball no call and they give Memphis a time out while the ball is still loose. Just sets it up for another ridiculous finish.

    My W's are getting the azzes whupped by the Clips. Does LA have two top five players on the same team in Paul and Griffin?

    When the Clippers get production out of the SF position they are the best team in the NBA. Unfortunately that position is filled with big names and small production (Danny Granger, Matt Barnes, Jared Dudley, and Hedo Turkoglu).

    Yes but the gap between Durant/Lebron and them is pretty large considering they could only get the 3 seed with Westbrook missing over half the year. Paul missed time too but not as much. It's still better to have the best player than 2 of the next set.

    Not sure if I would count Griffin as a top five (though ask every fan NBA and they will give you a different top five), but I did read an article sometime back talking about how Paul kind of steps on Griffin's game sometimes. It was something to the effect that Griffin's passing and dribble drive game out of the high post are so effective you could actually run lots of offense through him the way the Griz do with Gasol, Minny with Love, SA used to with Duncan, etc., but Paul essentially reduces him to a pick and roll finisher and offensive rebounder (though his jumper has improved massively since entering the league and madding him more of a pick and pop threat). But that's a nice problem to have, in my opinion.

    Griffin was ripping it up when Paul was out this year, but he still has a way to go. There's a very clear cut 1 and 2, but then the next 10-15 players you could all rank in the top 5 for whatever reason.

    Big game for Indiana tonight.

    I view them kind of like I did UK in the NCAA this season. They may go down in flames, but if they survive and advance (and re-gel), I still fear (as a Heat fan) they have the players to win it all.

    I see it's close at halftime. I'll have to tune in when I get home shortly (from work).

    Noah is 2 rebounds away from another double-double as the Bulls lead by 9 in the 4th.

    It's only fitting that this Wizards-Bulls game go into overtime with the two former Gators going at it on the last shot. Both Beal and Noah are having fantastic games.

    Beal with 25 tonight. Took the game winning shot, but it was contested by Noah off the switch (pick). Beal missed it and now we're going to OT! A little gator on gator action for the last shot. Awesome.

    Beal scored 9 in the final 4:45 of regulation including 2 3's to bring them back to tie it. Without him they're not even in the playoffs.
