Memphis lost that game? Wow. I conked out while watching on the couch at the end of the 3rd quarter, sounds like I missed quite a show.

Mav's vs Thunder last night: Thunder won....despite having more turnovers than assists!
13 assists, 16 turnovers. WOW! How did they win? They had 35 foul shots and missed only 2 of them! Kidd shot 2-10. Carter wasn't much better. I think the Mav's will tie this series up with two wins in Dallas. They could have won both of these games...and should have won the 1st one for sure!
It's too bad that all playoff basketball can't be as beautiful as the Stockton/Malone led Jazz teams, right?

11 assists....and 18 turnovers, and STILL won the game by 17 points!!!??? Bad, very bad basketball. The Heat are going to get killed by either the Thunder or the Spurs, whomever advances in the West!
Well, last night was sure a red letter day in NBA playoff history! BOTH teams failed to score 80 points, both teams had more turnovers than assists....and both teams shot below 40 percent from the field. You don't want to know what their combined 3 point shooting percentage was, but I'll tell you anyway: 4-31!!! By the way, they should have slapped Wade with a flagrant 2 when he got so frustrated and just about tackled his opponent in the 4th quarter!
.....one pathetic 7th game if I ever saw one! Poor shooting (both teams have combined for 1-15 three point shooting), more turnovers than assists, no plays being called or run.....heck, our cable went off at the hotel for about 30 minutes, a few people complained about it, then it came back on.....and they called the front desk to tell me to shut it down again, they'd seen all they could stand!
I enjoy watching good defense at least as much fun as good offense.
Let them play, call the games fair. Refs overprotecting the shooters makes for bad basketball.
Shooting percentage is not indicative of the quality of the game.
....it's certainly not an indication of good defense......especially if none is being played! LOTS of missed WIDE OPEN shots, lots of unforced turnovers....and just plain unwatchable basketball on a professional level! I suspect the Spurs/Thunder game tonight will be half-way decent!
