    1. Z-man

      RIP Orlando Woolridge, saw him courtside at a Nets game once, one of the most physically imposing specimens I’ve ever seen up close, and an awesome power dunker.

    2. Loathing

      Had to work, but I listened to about the last eight minutes of the game. Holy crap, did KD take over…I still think the Thunder take this series in six.
