not sure if i am included in 'those saying it was a foul', but i'm just suggesting that i am surprised it wasn't called, not upset that it wasn't called.

Lakers look good. Such a talented and exciting group. Look at what they've accomplished so far.
Heck...... LA's only down 9 points after 1 quarter.

the long arm of prokhorov
the nets got a lot of nice calls this season, one more reason to avoid them in the playoffs
not sure miami is too keen to face them either, if they're not 100%,which seems likely given wade's struggles, it will be a tough series for them

the ultimate irony, the much maligned atlantic division will provide the two eastern conference finalists this season JV vs KG, the matchup that will define who plays in the finals!

Hawks fall to Pistons. That race for 8th just got a little tighter.
ATL 1.5 games ahead of NY
Hawks have 5 games left, Knicks have 4

This game meant nothing, and those saying it was a foul wouldn't be so adament about it if it was another team. It's good that we're in a position like this to be so invested in a game like this and be homers, but there was no angle that showed that was a clear foul in that scenario from Plumlee on Lebron. Who cares if he hit his hand after? And Thornton may have gotten Lebron on the wrist going up, but it didnt affect the play and it was impossible to see from the angle the ref had.

If IND played MIA and Hibbert did that and they called a last second foul on Hibbert, we'd all be pissed that Lebron got another superstar call.
IMO it was a foul. Another game advantage on Brooklyn would have been nice but it does not matter. I'm much more interested in Chicago losing at least one of their remaining games. It is either going to be tonight against Minnesota or the last game against the Bobcats, doubt they lose to Orlando or Detroit. I don't think Brooklyn can catch us since we have the tie breaker, we would have to go at least 2-3 the rest of the way for them to catch us, they would have to win all. Don't care about BKN, but that was a foul on LeBron.

Atlanta losing sucks. I was hoping NY gives up. Or that we atleast start playing better basketball. The way we're playing we need all the help we can get.

I'm sure its been talked about already. But that was a blatant hand holding, patty caking foul by Plumlee on Lebron.

We really need to win out to ensure that we don't play Brooklyn in the first round.

The only thing that concerns me with Brooklyn is them getting calls.

A lot of good games on tonight that will affect playoff positioning:

EAST:

BRK@ORL- Back to back for BRK after a really tough win last night. The Magic play well at home, so this wont be a cake walk.

CHA@WAS- Whoever wins essentially gets the 6 seed

CHI@MIN- This is one of two games CHI has left where there's a good chance that they'll lose(the other @NYK, with the other 2 games vs DET/ORL). Hopefully Love puts them in the woodchipper.


WEST:

MIA@MEM- PHX is one game up on MEM for the 8 spot. And...

PHX@NOH- NOH has beaten a lot of good teams lately, and match up well with PHX's high paced style. PHX needs this game, as their next two are @DAL, and potentially their biggest game of the year, VS MEM.

Should be an exciting night in the NBA

Not to mention that in that MIA/MEM matchup, if Miami loses they could be dropping back down to 2nd.

I know yesterday was a great game, but all these injuries have ruined such great matchups this year.

Brooklyn could've played Lopez and KG against the Heat with D-Wade there.

The Lakers could've played Kobe against the Rockets with another reunion of D12 at Staples.


Hope every exciting player is healthy next year. Especially Rondo, Westbrook and Rose. Atleast a lot of them not being healthy has worked out for the Raptors.
