Your last comment is the key one they have a gear we just cannot get to. Some blame the coach, I just think we're just not quite good enough

Some very good games last night, but again they go from 9 out of 10 to 7 for entertainment by dragging it all out.

Last minute of a game, basket, time out
Another possession.....time out
Foul...time out
One free throw time out
Inbounds play might not work, time out
Inbounds play works, shot missed O rebounds, time out

You go from the edge of your seat to wishing it would end.

The NBA for me is the third best US league, and it could push the NHL for second if they every sort out these end game issues.

On the other hand I admit as a general spectacle even if you just follow the scores it's been much better this season, none of the usual rubbish in the first round which usually should be renamed the NBA Sweeps!

2 of the 3 games went the right way last night, kudos to Vince but it would be better if the Spurs go through and eventually play the Thunder.

You clearly don't understand that you need to foul out and take time outs as it's all part of strategy in Basketball.

why would teams let teams run down the clock by passing the ball around for 24 Seconds?

Do you complain that people take time outs in Football when the kickers about to take a Field Goal?

Anyway i've changed my mind now Nene is suspended i can see the Bulls taking advantage and winning the Series in 7 against the Wizards. He let his temper get the better of him and it's going to cost the Wizards dearly if i was a Wizards fan i'd be highly pissed off at him right about now.

Yeah lets just let teams run down the clock by passing the ball around for 24 Seconds it doesn't matter that the team losing is 4 Points behind with 30.6 Seconds left on the clock as it bores people (you).

I understand the strategy but three million time outs at the end totally ruin the spectacle.

I wasn't complaining about taking fouls that makes perfect sense.

That in Football is one time out not 5 in 20 seconds of action. And I'm not a fan of it in Football because if anything it gives the kicker a chance to relax.

I am merely trying to show how a good sport could become even better.

Agreed I saw them play the Raptors a few years ago and the crowd was not exactly enthused by the product.

As a Pacers fan I hope they advance

Credit to the Wizards they have stepped up with Nene missing.
