First, remember to look below for the fatter post. Second, sigh... apparently I can figure out how to use the comic uploading software, it's just acting like a piece of crap right now. Example? I try to delete what it has as the sample comic up right now instead, it places a copy of the comic in the trash and keeps the original file in place. Great stuff, huh? But enough of that, on to the games!

Crazy for the Heat
This one wasn't nearly as close as the score indicates. The Wizards had some nice runs and as I predicted, nobody could guard the man whose name is mispronounced by commentators more times than Sarunas Jasikevicius (okay, that might be a stretch) but you were kidding yourself if you thought the Wiz had a shot at this one. Teams don't let their opposition shoot 16.5% better from the floor and win playoff games! If such a box score exists somewhere in the great history of the NBA, I'd love to see it.

Spurs... uh... blog?
Similar idea to the Heat game, except only 10.5%. Wicked line of the night goes to Manu Ginobili, who shot 9-11 from the field and had... 28 points? The man had a PPS of 2.55 on the night. Every two he took was equivalent to a make and over half a free throw made. That's so good it makes Ray Allen's 1.79 PPS on the night look average. In the Jerome James watch, he went 4-9 with 8 points, 7 boards and 5 fouls in 24 minutes. Slanted up to 36 minutes, that's 12 points, 10.5 boards and 7.5 fouls. Yeah, something seems off here. Too much hanging out with Fortson and Collison, perhaps? Or maybe it was just playing against Big Dog, who had 6 fouls in 20 minutes. Tell me that guy can't play D, huh?

Preview of Pistons and Pacers, game two
As I said in the post down below, this ought to be another beatdown. I suspect J-O has a better second half, the near 40 year old shoots a little better and Jack-1 stops hounding Tayshaun, but the result will be very similar. I know I don't normally attach score predictions but I love 100-85, let's say it'll be around there again. Was only four points off on both sides in game one, right?
