Undefeated with Jameer back...he's really playing well

I think if you put McGee back then, he would get those blocks just as easily as Russell did. Russell's athleticism was well ahead of the players of his time, and that's about it.

Is there a more clutch trio? Really, Lewis, Nelson, and Hedo are all reliable in the last few seconds of the game.

Hedo Turkoglue doesn't care for two things:

1. The Pacific Northwest

2. Overtime

As a Laker fan... that was flat out embarrassing. We don't deserve to be called a top team until we start playing like it, and even though the record is great still (18-3), we are playing like poo even in our wins the past month.

Very embarrassing.
Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more.

Nope. You treat them individually, and they're all top 20 clutch players in the league. Hell maybe even top 10.

Parker, Duncan, Gino are also a clutch trio. I say this NOT ONLY as a Spurs homer, but a fan that feels comfortable with any of the 3 with the ball in the last secs..Parker has been doing it well lately too, Gino had a bad game tonight he missed a wide open 3(literally, WIDE open) near the end of the game, went 7-21 on the night lol

I gotta say tho Hedo/Lewis/Nelson are pretty clutch, too. Cant go wrong with either trio

Tough loss for the Blazers. They didn't execute well enough down the stretch to win. I guess their youth showed itself tonight. Props to the Magic for battling on the second of a back to back.

I think Portland needed a loss like this... they're so used to beating teams like this that it will help them learn A) How it feels and B) That you have to execute down the stretch to beat good teams.

Lewis is an assassin he has made numerous clutch shots this year.

Sooooo Cleveland just waxed Toronto. Lebron just dunked on them all night. It was weird watching that

Damn when you watch the Cavs at home, its a great atmosphere a real animal house, the crowd is nice and close to the action and all jumping up and down with LeBron. This Cavs team is going places, and James will have trouble turning his back on them in 2010. I'm thinking Wade and Bosh are more likely to leave their towns for a slice of the big apple.
