Carmelo putting in an extraordinary performance in Game 2 against the C's tonight; Dwight Howard repeating his insane Game 1 performance against Atlanta.
OT- NBA Playoff/Carmelo Anthony Appreciation Open Thread
The Nuggets better win tomorrow night, they got screwed in game 1
I agree. There's some pivotal games taking place tomorrow night. Spurs need to get their act together and find a way to guard Memphis' bigs. Lakers will probably bounce back, but you can't count out the Hornets because of CP3.
I hate the Lakers so I don't wanna say that they'll probably get it done haha. The Spurs definitely need to find a way to guard Randolph AKA Baby Face and Gasol. The Bulls look like the best team to me right now, or obviously the Heat they have a little bit of talant
Carmelo has the same burden as Miguel Cabrera; he is the offense tonight, and is going to have to get it done by himself.
Bet on Portland. Dallas is 2-16 in the playoffs when Joey Crawford officiates their game. Guess who's calling the game tonight?
Wow very good inside information, I don't bet but i'll definitely take that in to consideration as I watch the game.
There's always this gold nugget from Joey Crawford too.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaZIAXJJDKQ
Danny Crawford is calling the game tonight, not Joey.
Danny? Joey is white
Cant wait to see how Melo, Amare, and Deron Williams mesh next year.
While it obviously has no happened yet....I think NY will find a way to get Deron to NY to run wih those 2. Might acually allow me to watch the nba a litle bit more.
I doubt the new CBA will allow super teams to be built anymore. A higher % would be that Howard gets traded to NJ to join Williams or is sent to LA(a far third would be Chicago).
Nets will likely make a strong push for Dwight and have the assets to do so
Unbelievable the way that NY handed that game away. That's the value of having playoff experience.
Well, hopefully the Knicks steal some games away from the Celtics. I still don't think Boston wins the East though. Trading Perkins was a bonehead move.
Really wish the NBA would find a deal to allow ESPN and TNT to both broadcast weeknight games. Missing a good finish in Orlando because I don't have NBATV at my apartment.
Knicks have 103 games of playoff experience outside of Stoudemire/Billups/Melo, Paul Pierce has 103 after tonight's game. That is why Boston is up 2-0 in this series.
Game 1, terrible defense to allow Garnett an inbounds alley-oop from Rondo. Then Anthony jacks up that horrible contested three when Stoudamire was clearly the superstar with the hot hand.
Game 2, when Anthony should be taking the ball to the basket he passes to Jared Jeffries (????), who forgoes the attempt at the hoop to try a crazy pass in traffic. Then the Knicks fail to foul immediately on the ensuing Celtics inbound??
Both situations left me shaking my head, I was really hoping for the Knicks to take at least one in Boston to make things really interesting going back to New York.
The Celtics should feel blessed they are going to MSG up 2-0.
I always appreciate Carmelo Anthony.
