Minus 1 Play

Posted by doms | Friday, May 30, 2008 | | 0 comments »

Basketball fanatics are well too familiar with the " and 1 play" . That means a basket was made and the player who made the shot was fouled while doing so.

Last time I watched a PBA game, I witnessed some sort of Minus 1 play.

The game was between Ginebra Gin Kings and Magnolia. The sequence was a fastbreak. The gins import Alexander, dished off to Alex Crisano for an in your face dunk against two Magnolia players.

Apparently, Crisano was too pumped up for the dunk shot that he hang unto the ring. Thereby meting himself a Technical Foul.

So the dunk was counted but the Magnolia team was awarded a bonus free throw.

That is basically a minus-one play.


Lakers end Spurs reign

Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers ended the reign of the San Antonio Spurs, winning Game 6 of the NBA West Conference Final Series 100, 92.

This will be KB24 and the Lakers first trip to the Finals since 2004. With Shaq still wearing purple and gold, the Lakers were stunned by the Detroit Pistons 4-1 in that series.

They will be awaiting the winner of the East Conference between the Detroit Pistons and the Boston Celtics.


2008 NBA Finals wish

Posted by doms | Friday, May 23, 2008 | , | 0 comments »

And then there are only four teams left in the quest for this years NBA Championship Crown - the Celtics, Lakers, Pistons, Spurs.

The NBA would love a blockbuster matchup in June between the Celtics and the Lakers. They will rekindle their old rivalry in the eighties. The subplots and the story lines will abound if this matchup will materialize adding more hype. The hollywood appeal for this is staggering to say the least.

A Lakers- Piston tussel would also revived some old rivalries. Today's Pistons are to a little extent the same with their Bad Boys Era counterpart, but I guess less tamer except probably for Sheed. And in some ways, they (Pistons) would play the part of stopping or slowing down a superstar's quest for glory. In the 80's, Jordan. At present, KB24.

Here's the matchup most fans in general wouldn't love to see. Celtics-Spurs and Spurs Pistons. I bet Commissioner Stern, the NBA and the Broadcasting company are having sleepless night pondering what to do if any of these two matchup will happen. If so, then the championship series will not be as entertaining, except for basketball puritans I guess, because of the way these teams play. Who could forget the ratings of the 2005 Finals? But to be positive about it that one is more competitive than last year.

I hope its a Celtics-Lakers championship series. A Game 7 won on the last shot or possession. Followed by a celebration of the guys in green.


Celtics, Piston duel for East Crown

Posted by doms | Monday, May 19, 2008 | , | 0 comments »

Celtics eliminated Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in an epic Game 7, 97-92 to earn the right to meet the Piston for the Eastern Conference Championship.

The win might be a sigh of big relief for Boston fans as the mighty Celtics once again went through a Game 7 in order to advance. And it proved the theory the prevailing sentiment that the Cavs and Bron need more help.

The Piston meanwhile are coming off a good rest. More importantly, it gave time to their top guard, Chauncey Billups to rest his injury.

It's my desire, perhaps even the whole NBA, for the Celtics to prevail. But my gut feeling is that homecourt advantage may not be enough for the Celtics to get past the Pistons.


Lakers through to West Finals

Posted by doms | Saturday, May 17, 2008 | , | 0 comments »

Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Utah Jazz 108-105 in game 6 to win their series 4-2.

The Lakers seemed cruising to a victory when the Jazz launched their last stand via defense, making treys and great clock management.

But Kobe and Derek Fisher, with a dozen season experience in them, showed composure and they await the winner of game 7 match between the New Orleans Hornets and the San Antonio Spurs.

Frankly, I hope the Hornets prevail.
