One Game We Watched Last Night: Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks
Heat: 87, Knicks: 70
At the 7:38 mark in the first quarter of game three, the Heat sent a courtesy email to the New York Knicks. The subject line read, "Thanks so much!!!" The body said this:
Seriously: Going up for a dunk, then tossing an alley-oop over the newly crowned Defensive Player of the Year during a playoff game is disrespectful. Wonderfully, delightfully disrespectful. I'll drop more words on this topic when I emerge from the fog, but I'm rooting for the Heat and you should be too. Well, I guess I don't know you, so I shouldn't tell you what to do. But there are so many reasons to want to see this team succeed.
One Game We Sort Of Watched Last Night, But You Know, It Got Out Of Hand: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks
Thunder: 95, Mavericks: 79
That picture right there isn't from last night. But I want to talk about that black-hatted man in the background. What's he up to? It's disconcerting how Durant doesn't even look like he knows that guy is lurking, right? I just worry that it's some harbinger of darkness. More specifically, I'm worried that that guy is going make KD tear his ACL because all anyone seems to do these days is tear their ACL. C'mon athletes, get creative!
Oh, and yeah, they're just a lot better.
