PostGame; NBA Playoffs 2012 Round 3; BOS at MIA Game 7

I missed 2 posts but I seriously got busy these past two days, but they were for good reasons so its ok. I didn’t get to write though what I thought either MIA or BOS needed to do. Of course it’s all irrelevant now, as MIA has taken the Eastern Finals.

PostGame; NBA Playoffs 2012 Round 3; OKC at SAN Game 5

I gotta tell ya, this is what it’s all about:

That’s James Harden sticking a dagger 3 into the heart of SAN 5:17 to go, causing their lead to go up 100-88. Clearly the turning point in the game.

PostGame; NBA Playoffs 2012 Round 3; SAN at OKC Game 3

Well there you go. Coach Popovich conceded this game sometime late 3rd and OKC finally gets a W while breaking the Spurs 20 win streak. And the only relevant graphic I can think of to reflect this game are the stats, which don’t really do the job because again, the Spurs gave it up by resting his starters in the 4th, so any numbers you see here don’t really mean anything.

What I take away from this game is two things. FIRST, OKC has finally determined a system to stop Tony Parker, adopting an interesting switching defense that negates picks and rolls.

PostGame; NBA Playoffs 2012 Round 3; BOS at MIA Game 2

Sometimes I wish I was one of those powerful bloggers / sports journalists in the US, because I would seriously call out LeBron James. I would ask things like, 2.9 seconds left with the game tied, ball in your hand against a smaller defender (Rondo). Why do you take a step back jumper from 17ft.?

PostGame; NBA Playoffs 2012 Round 3; OKC at SAN Game 2

Ok I decided not to reuse this pic in the original post I wrote this morning, and instead go with Master Shifu.

Him being my representative of the Spurs, whilst OKC represented of course by the tiger, whoever he is.

PostGame; NBA Playoffs 2012 Round 2; PHI at BOS Game 7

It took me a long while to write this because I was looking for Rondo’s stat, particularly scoring per quarter for this game. Sadly I couldn’t find any even after a thorough search of the usual online haunts, so I’ll just resort to the usual clickbait and post a pic of Rondo with that famous ‘dagger’ three, that help put them out of reach from PHI 68 – 76.

Sucks to be a PHI fan right now huh.
