Evertime I try to get out, they keep pulling me back in

Looks like I spoke too soon last night. Indy closed the gap so I stayed tuned to TNT for the rest of the night.

Detroit/Indiana: Tale of two halfs, Detroit's 4th quarter O was horrible even by their standards/Jeff "Dreamy Eyes" Foster just killed Detroit, coming up with offensive boards, tip in baskets and a big block at the end. Definite Jerome James/Andres Nocioni "where did that come from?" performance/I know Plastic Man is taken, but Tayshaun needs a nickname. How 'bout Mr. Fantastic? Keeping with the Fantastic 4 theme, who would be the Thing? We already have a Johnny Storm (Gordon) and an Invisible Girl (Peja come playoff time).

Phoenix/Dallas: For those who complain about Nash's lack of ppg in the MVP debate, last night showed that he can score when he has to. Picking up the slack for the injured Joe Johnson (get well soon), Nash dropped 23 to go with a Vorhees of assists (13 if that ref was too esoteric)/Dirk was ghost until he hit the game winner. Second time that has happened these playoffs/Mike Finley stepped up with his best game of the year, just when Dallas needed him the most/Mavs also got bailed out by a 1 in 10,000 alley-oop dunk miss by Amare at the end.

Welcome Russ Bengston to the blog game.

Next Yao? More like next Ha Seung-Jin.

Jerry Sloan keeps on keepin' on. Hopefully Kirilenko has better luck next year.

    Although I feel bad about wasting the nickname on such a waste of air, due to his hands of stone, Mark Blount is a primo candidate to be named "The Thing."
