Beautiful up and under off the spin on the dribble drive into the paint by Ty Lawson against Kevin Durant.

That looked fantastic. Little Ty Lawson at 5-11 against the 6-11 Kevin Durant with his 7-4 wingspan skying in the air while Ty Lawson just goes under him for the neat little finish in the paint. Pretty play.

Anyone watching Tony Allen destroying the Pacers with hustle?

These last two minutes have been incredible.  He dove for a loose ball, stole a rebound from David West, grabbed an offensive rebound, and stole the ball from Hibbert that lead to him assisting a game-tying basket.

Clippers and Warriors have a very good game going on right now. One possession game in the fourth. Very competitive. Good back and forth.

Beautiful pass by Blake Griffin out of the right post to a cutting guard from the weakside. Layup.

Steph Curry had a very nice hard bounce in transition that flew by Griffin to Jarrett Jack for the fastbreak layup a few moments ago.

Neither David Lee (foul trouble) or Carl Landry are able to defend Griffin. Clippers just pounding it through the post. Warriors forced to double. Warriors going defense/offense now with Ezeli coming in to defend Griffin.

Tough test for Ezeli. Griffin is far more explosive athletically than the centers he is normally asked to guard. It'll be interesting to see how Ezeli does here.

B.Griffin needs to attack Carl Landry with power. Not quickness.

Landry is a quick footed big but he's only 6-7 and there is no way he can stop Griffin from taking a jump-hook or turnaround shot over him. No need to face up and force a drive. Bad decision by Griffin. Turnover. Make the easy play.

Oh ho ho, cold blooded Steph Curry three running off screens for the catch and shoot triple on the right wing. Very similar to the action Ray Allen got while here in Boston.

Steph Curry has been great in fourth. Drained 4 triples. Jarrett Jack, too, fantastic performance. 16 points, 10 assists and 6 rebounds for Jack. They have outplayed the Clippers backcourt in the fourth quarter.

Ah jeez, next possession, Ezeli comes in to defend Blake Griffin.

What does Blake Griffin do? He posts up, tries to overpower him, plays for the jump hook in lane, excellently defended by Ezeli, strong shot-contest, missed shot. Wasteful.

The advantage there is his quickness and face up game. Griffin is too quick and athletic for a big burly center like Ezeli.

Make the smart play. Stop forcing low percentage shots. Know who you are playing against.

Anyone see that Kobe8system commercial for his new kicks?

Fabulous - I can't disagree with that.

Too bad the Lakers (and BOS, apparently :o) are in some dire straits.

I guess we can say that at least BOS is in SOME trouble...Lakers are in DEEP trouble, especially if they lose tonight.
