Are you kidding me?

What got into the cavs tonight? THey out physicalled and outhustled the most physical/hustling team in the NBA. Moreover the Pistons just looked demoralized and defeated toward the end of that game and intermittently throughout it.

I can't believe it, but I before I get to caught up in this, I have to remember that cavs really need to put this away friday. We really dont want to have to try to go back to Detroit and do this again.

Oh yeah, no rasheed Wallace for game 6. Stupid thug got slapped with a 4th testicle of the playoffs leading to an automatic one game suspension.

Is that true, about the one-game suspension?

No, that isnt true
It has to be 7 technicals before he gets suspended
Mike Brown is a great coach, why isnt anyone calling him out now?

(Hand raised)
I gotta admit I hated on Brown during the season......you can always change your mind :)

WOW! Furls is right, they completely out-played the Pistons last night. Really, they have out-played them since the first 7 quarters of the series.

Never saw this going more than 5, but now I'm greedy....I WANT IT ALL!

Somebody needs to let Sheed know that no matter what the weather forecast calls for.....

THE SUN IS STILL SHINING IN CLEVELAND! What an idiot!

I'm not a very sophisticated NBA fan. I'm willing to be edumacatued.

What has Mike Brown done to convince you he's a "great coach?" I can analyze Eric Wedge because I understand baseball well: since I don't know what I'm looking for in the NBA, how would I evaluate this statement?

"What has Mike Brown done to convince you he's a "great coach?""

He coaches LeBron.

A somewhat similar reason is why Phil Jackson is a great coach.

What a game......what a series.

The problem now of course, is I went in thinking we'd get smoked this series and would have been fine losing. Now, I fucking believe we can win, and if we lose I'll be pissed. Is TCE fucking with us again here? Jesus H.

And, I must say.....this playoffs my opinion on Mike Brown has changed some. I think he deserves at least some credit for the performance to date. In no way do I think he is a great coach.....but I do think he is getting better and may be a solid coach for this team going forward. We'll see.

But, like Buff....I'm not a big NBA guru-type who can truly breakdown why or why not Mike Brown is a bad/good coach.....so, I'm curious what some of the more dedicated NBA types think of Brown, and why.

First year coach on the brink of eliminating a team thats been to the Finals 3 years in a row.
Benching 2 starters at the end of games, going with the hot hands.
Their defense has been fucking nails against the Pisstons
Billups, a serious MVP canidate, cant figure the D out.

i haven't really watched the NBA since Joradan sunk that damn shot - and i doubt i ever will watch the NBA on a regular basis again....

but i flipped back and forth between the Indians game and the Cavs game last night

and i am seriously thinking of finding my old MIRACLE @ RICHFIELD album (for you young people they used to make long playing CDS out of something called vinyl and called them albums)

Eric Snowjob and Flippin' Murray suck! Mark Price and Craig Ehlo would do better even though they are covered with cobwebs!
