Lakers have so far shown every reason why they should be swept in this semfinals series, and not just because they lost game 1 by 29 points. Kobe and coach Brown knew OKC had a foul to give even down by 1 point with :18 left. Why do you dribble out the clock looking for the last shot? You know the Thunder are going to use their foul to give, disrupting the offense and forcing another inbound. Take the opportunity, and even if you miss at worst the game is still one possession with time left on the clock to tie or win. OKC was lucky especially since Westbrook left Blake wide open only to strong arm a 3 off the right rim as time expired. Terrible clock management and lack of execution down the stretch.
All Robert Wagner needs is his eyepatch. Now see if you were still living some 1500 miles north you'd only be paying around $3.62 per gallon. Has yet to dip below $4.09 her in the NYC area, but gas was as high as $4.33 in some places at the end of March, though it should spike higher again just after the holiday weekend.
20,843 is like a sellout at that eyesore they call Tropicana Field. It reminds me of a smaller version of the Kingdome. They'll draw similar crowds when teams like the Yankees, Texas and Detroit come to town, but it's only a matter of time before the Rays either move out of Florida or have a new stadium built that will attract more fans for a divison contender.
