    1. There are reports that Pierce yelled “Series!” at the Hawks bench after hitting his “game winning” shot.

      What a dick…..

    2. That is definitely pretty dickish. Especially since, you know, it wouldn’t even be series. It would be sliiiiiiiiightly cool if it was, say, Game 7 when he hit the shot.

    3. I think it was a great ploy to try and put doubt in the Hawks head that they couldnt win game 6 in the District

    4. I think it was a great ploy to try and put doubt in the Hawks head that they couldnt win game 6 in the District

      That was almost certainly the goal.

    5. If I’m the Bulls I am calling Sacramento and see if they want him to play the Vlade to Cousins Webber. I wonder what Vlade would say to that. Maybe include Denver to get Lawson back with Karl too. I think Sac would give up their Lotto pick for that. Maybe Gibson and Snell to Denver for Faried? idk

    6. Harden acting like a baby, pushing anyone who gets close to him– the sign of someone who just realized, 6 games into a playoff series, that the team he’s playing against is a lot better than his.

    7. The CP3 never made a conference finals narrative is gonna need an update

      Paul Pierce is that you?

      The Clips will still win though but man they made it hard on themselves.

    8. The CP3 never made a conference finals narrative is gonna need an update

      Jinx!!!

    9. Amazing restraint by McHale going without Harden for the entire 4th Quarter. I don’t know that many coaches would have sat Harden for the whole 4th even with the incredible comeback by that Hardenless unit.

    10. Chris Paul was being guarded by Jason Terry. Jason Terry people. How do you not take over the 4th and save your team? If the CLips actually lose this series…

    11. With the Clips tremendous bed shitting and the no Harden comeback the takes are going to be caliente tomorrow. And nobody will know i ruined it all for LA

    12. I think that today there was BBall gods over KB predominant Bbal understanding all the way….crazy.

      Watched both games….and to have no comments here on The Smiths is a disapointment: I have one: Meet the Murderer;-)
