Okay, here’s the deal. I basically killed myself Tuesday night/Wednesday morning writing a couple of stories. I messed up my system something awful on No-Doz, and I’m just now recovering from an awful headache I had pretty much all of Thursday. To say I’ve fallen behind on the basketball writing would be a bit of an understatement, akin to suggesting that I was less than pleased with Tony’s play in…

In case you have some time to kill before tomorrow’s game 3 in Denver, you’ll find some video highlights below. NBA TV Top 10: April 25 Spurs 97, Nuggets 88 (Game 2) Tim Duncan post-game interview Bowen, Finley and Ginobli: After the game Spurs coach Gregg Popovich on preparing for Game 3

Yesterday was Tim Duncan’s 31st birthday. To celebrate the occasion, his San Antonio Spurs managed to lose a 17 point lead in the fourth quarter against an NBA playoff team with Eduardo Najera in the rotation. Don’t get me wrong, I like Najera, and the rest of the Nuggets. I just didn’t think we would be playing them in late April. And I was still stinging from the close loss…

Poof. Just like that, the Spurs (and the Mavericks*) lost their homecourt advantage yesterday. Mr. Robot Face must screw head back on. (Jerry Lara/ Express-News)The good news is that the Spurs kept it close against the Nuggets, and came back to within two in the closing seconds, despite having a truly atrocious shooting day. I doubt that Iverson and Anthony will play this well again against the Spurs. How awful…

In lieu of writing a new post, which would require time and energy that Bramlet unfortunately can’t spare today, I give you last year’s playoff post “How to Maximize the Spurs’ Mojo.” Let’s all do our part to ensure a Spurs victory tonight and another championship playoff run. I hope you find this inspirational. And I hope you find an undigested chicken head in your poop if you don’t. Apparently…

Not a bad first day of NBA playoffs, considering there was no Spurs game to hold my rapt attention. Both 4-5 series look like they’re gonna go at least six and T-Dot vs. Vinsanity looks pretty juicy as well. I watched maybe 2 ¼ games cumulatively, and for me that’s a lot. I don’t see that’s gonna happening tomorrow… Game 1: New Jersey @ Toronto: Nets 96, Raptors 81 It…

Michael and Matthew made their picks for the first round over at PtR. (I’ve hyperlined the picks that align with those of Steve Kerr, in case anyone is interested how we compare to an “expert.”) There is one thing that all of us non-experts agree on: SA over DEN in 5. Michael picks:DAL over GS in 6PHX over LAL in 6SA over DEN in 5HOU over UTA in 7 DET…
