Playoffs.Worst of the Last Night of the Regular Season in Pictures:
"HEY GIRL. HOW YOU DOIN'?" This is the look of despair, AKA losing to the Pistons "Chandler, with the right hook! Down goes Paul! Down goes Paul!!" Something we've all missed: a facepalming Nyets player Timberwolves fans are so sad, they can't even be bothered to find a paper bag that doesn't have writing all over it Hell yeah, little buddyNationally Televised Saturday Games:Pacers at Bulls, ESPN, 1pm (Series tied 0-0)
: According to Joakim Noah, "It's the playoffs, dude. It doesn't get more exciting than this." I beg to differ. Pretty much anything
is more exciting than a 1-versus-8 seed series this lopsided. Have you seen the Pacers play?76ers at Heat, ABC, 3:30pm (Series tied 0-0)
: Sixers forward Thaddeus Young said "The whole [Heat] team is good. They don't have that record because of just three guys." Um, actually, yeah. They do
have that record because of just three guys. Have you seen the rest of the Heat play?Hawks at Magic, ESPN, 7pm (Series tied 0-0)
: If I had to pick two teams to define the mediocrity of the Eastern Conference, I would unquestionably choose the Hawks and the Magic. How appropriate they get to play each other right off the bat!Frail Blazers at Mavericks, ESPN, 9:30pm (Series tied 0-0)
: Both of these organizations have a rich history... of early playoff flame-outs. Which team will earn the right to get their asses handed to them in the second round???
* * *Nationally Televised Sunday Games:Grizzlies at Spurs, TNT, 1pm (Series tied 0-0)
: Z-Bo leading a scrappy Memphis team into the playoffs, and people claiming they actually might give the Spurs all they can handle. If you put money down on that in Vegas three years ago, can I be your best friend? (Because you'd be filthy rich considering those odds, you see)Hornets at Lakers, ABC, 3:30pm (Series tied 0-0)
: No David West, Chris Paul playing with one-and-a-half knees... I don't even feel like coming up with something witty to say about this series. It just sucks.Knicks at Celtics, TNT, 7pm (Series tied 0-0)
: Just remember, fellow Celtics fans: this starting five has never been beaten when healthy as well! (Yes, I'm aware they haven't played with this starting five yet in the playoffs -- that was the joke.)Nuggets at Thunder, TNT, 9:30pm (Series tied 0-0)
: Now here
is a nice test of the Ewing Theory. This also is a legitimately super-exciting series I believe. Woooooo playoffs!
