He's gonna be dog-tired on the 23rd. Going west-east-west-east is gonna catch up to him...

Read his GQ interview. He'll be tired from the ladies.

It's really fun watching Kawhi Leonard play. Less fun watching Hack-A-Jordan.

Man, the NBA really needs to look at the playoff seeding format. It isn't fair to either team in the LA-SA series.

Meanwhile, we're guaranteed one of WAS-TOR in the second round. FUN!

Boy did the Clippers look good last night! Only game 1, but I didn't expect things to start this well against the Spurs. I should try being more positive I guess.

It is fun. Finally some fresh blood in the second round.

It is difficult to watch, plus it doesn't work.

Since 2013, when Jordan attempts 12 FT or more (he had 12 last night), they are now 16-2. LAC is unbeaten if he gets to the line 14+ times.

Yeah, that's what they were saying. At least it was limited to the first half; the game was too far out of reach in the second.

Shame that the Spurs couldn't shoot at all. Sometimes that happens. The Clippers played a perfect game and it showed, especially Blake Griffin. That's the way he should be playing.

Here's a potentially scary fact that might make the New Orleans final night loss loom large:

In the Pop-Duncan era, the Spurs- for all their excellence- have won only 5 playoff series without homecourt advantage- 1998, 2005, 2007 vs. Phoenix, 2008 vs. the New Orleans Hornets, 2010 vs. Dallas. (And worth noting they were no worse than a 5 seed for all but the Dallas series)

Every other playoff series they've ever won since 1998, they had homecourt advantage.

Got to watch the end of the 3rd and all of the 4th Quarter of the Warriors-Pelicans Game 2, and this is a fun series (probably a lot more if your a Warriors fan) but man. Klay Thompson helped propel Golden State to the win with 14 of his 26 points in the 4th Quarter.

I feel bad for the Bucks. They drew the short straw against a healthy Bulls team gaining steam. I wish they had drawn Toronto.

So the Bucks advancing would have been "FUN!"?

The best thing that can be said about the East's first round is that it looks like it will end soon.

You must not have watched the Celtics/Cavs game last night. It was a good one, and Isaiah Thomas is breaking out. That's always exciting too.

Some people get so little enjoyment from sports that I wonder why they bother.

I don't know what the long-term prospects for a Westbrook/Ibaka led team are, even with a 75 percent Durant.

I think they drafted incredibly well, but their window is probably closing no matter who the coach is. Maybe Thibs ends up there -- he has a lot of experience with injured superstars.
