Quick Preview for the NBA Playoff Games April 23
Atlanta @ Boston – 8 PM
After his stunning performance (5 points, 2 of 10 from the field) Mike Bibby thought it was a good idea to call the Celtics fans “bandwagon jumpers”. But that is not all he said, he added this: “I remember them having bags on their heads. Are they the ones that had bags on their heads last year? It’s just a different look, but I guess that happens when you win.”
I have to agree with KG. “I wouldn’t say it’s the smartest comment”! After all that trash talk I’m looking forward to game 2 (… or blowout nr. 2). Let’s see if Bibby can walk what he talks or if he will end up with a bag on his head…
Philly @ Detroit – 7:30 PM
The Sixers got the first and only upset win in the playoffs in game 1 of this series. The sweep was a sure thing and nobody gave the 76ers even a slight chance of winning even one game. After they won game 1…people still don’t believe in them and think they will lose the next four. Me? Yup, I still think that Detroit will beat Philly in 5. The Sixers haven’t won the game, it’s more like the Pistons lost it.
- I still don’t know why Chauncey didn’t attack the rim or why he didn’t just pull up for the jumper on his last drive…they call him “Mr. Big Shot” for a reason and he is the guy you want to shoot freethrows in the last minute – slight contact would have resulted in a foul…can’t change what happened, it is what it is
- The 76ers won this game because of a great team effort. 5 guys in double figures
- Everybody is questioning the Pistons motivation – this isn’t the same team you know from the last two years, they left that behind them.
Denver @ LA – 10:30 PM
Dude, are you serious? Showtime, baby! The Lakers are just too good for the Nuggets.
