We are in the middle of the NBA playoffs! So I haven’t really followed the playoffs too closely. I have followed the Heat and the Jazz a little bit, but I haven’t really watched any of the games. The Jazz’s performance in their first 2 games hasn’t really surprised me. Currently the series is 2-0 with the Spurs shutting out the Jazz. I don’t think we’ll be seeing the Jazz in another round of playoffs, just saying! As much as I would like to see them do well, I just don’t think that they are going to pull through and take the series.
The Heat, however, have made me proud! They are going 3-0 against the New York Knicks. I’m not really surprised at that because the Heat were ranked 2nd in the regular season and New York was 7th. I thought that there would be some struggle with Carmelo Anthony, but that’s really all that the Knicks have. Lebron James had a pretty good game despite his many fouls and turnovers. He scored 32 points, a large number of those in the 4th quarter, had 8 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals. This was one of the many games that Lebron just came and dominated in. There wasn’t much else that Carmelo could do for his team; he scored 22 points, made 2 assists, got 1 steal, and 1 block. Carmelo Anthony is a fantastic player, but he’s got to be with other players who can compliment and add to his performance. The Knicks can make it to the playoffs with one good player, but they are going to need a team that can work great together if they want to go much further.
I’m really excited about this year’s playoffs. I am hopeful that the Heat can make it to the championship this year and take it home. Lebron just has to take up his role of being the best player in the NBA and dominate like he did in this game. Tell me what you think about the playoffs and who you think might take the championship.
