Return Of Tha Live-Blog: Eastern Conference Finals Game 5- 2nd OT

Thursday, May 31, 2007




Wow....for those of you that have stayed with me....thanks a bunch. I was ready to quit after the 1st half. Let's refill and finish this out!

Lebron has scored now 22 of the Cavs last 23 as he nails a fadeaway, and if he can keep this up he'll just wear the Pistons out. Gibson fouls out, and Detroit turns it over on the next play.

Pavolic travels no call.....Billups to Hamilton, he misses a layup....tip-in is good. We're tied again.

102-102. Pavs misses again, and Webber gets the board and is fouled. And mark this down...I'm agreeing with Doug Collins again. No one has taken a shot for Cleveland besides Lebron for about 10 minutes....they're all cold.

Hamilton hits a baseline turnaround, and PAVLOVIC MISSES AGAIN! Get the ball out of his hands. Lebron steals the ball as the Pistons were trying to pick on Damon Jones.

2 minutes left. 104-102 Pistons.

Behind the back dribble...pressure jumper....LEBRON! We're tied. Just nasty.

1:35 left....we're tied....timeout Pistons. Catch your breath everyone.

Webber backs in, and travels, and gets fouled, and gets a ridiculous continuation, and an AND 1!!!!!!!!! Wow....that was sketchy to say the least. He can put the Pistons up three, but Damon Jones is yapping in his damn ear. "Quit Yapping and let the brother shoot!" It's good.

1:25 to go.....Lebron on the curl...

AND HE ICES A THREE!!!!! 46!!!!!!!! I can't say anything right now.

Rip misses on the other end, and there's 50 seconds left.

Bron fouled, but it's a non-shooting foul.....WOW! JUST WOW!

40 seconds left.....

Varejao is stuffed by Sheed!!!!!!!!!! Foul on the rebound....NO! Shot clock violation!!!!

29 seconds left we're tied....Pistons ball. Sheed is stuffed back by Varejao!!!! Sheed won't shut up as he thinks he was fouled.

11 seconds left....Cleveland ball....you think Donyell Marshall is taking the shot this time????

Sheed was fouled on the hand BTW, but no way he's getting that call.....

LEBRON AT THE TOP OF THE KEY....DRIVES!!!!!!!!! OH MAN.....WHAT A MONSTER MOVE! THAT IS STRENGTH!

Lebron has scored 29 of the last 30 points for the Cavs....that is just unreal. I have goosebumps right now.

Pistons ball down two....

BILLUPS MISSES THE RUNNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW! I can't believe what I just watched.

Final.....CAVS 109- PISTONS 107.

Videos galore to come later in the night, and tomorrow. I'm officially silenced as a Lebron critic....that was just amazing. Besides Jordan that 1st and 2nd Overtime was the best 10 minute performance I may have ever seen. Just ridiculous. I'm in shock.

LeBron has scored the last 18 for the Cavs? Are you f'n kidding me?

just imagine this cavs team if they don't have to have Lebron to take every shot for the entire 4th quarter/ot

Should Mike Brown just call all his timeouts right now, just to get it over with?

May 31, 2007, 11:43:00 PM  

haha i know
even Chris Webber wouldn't have called a timeout there

Nice pick by Lebron.

Prince can't get the inbound in?

Wow. Just wow.

Cleveland shouldn't even allow anyone else to touch the ball for more than three seconds. Brown should be telling LeBron to give them the Kelly Leak treatment - if you can possibly make the play, make it.

May 31, 2007, 11:47:00 PM  

the hell is that continuation?

Sam said...

What the heck? Shouldn't have counted on the webber shot.

hey-soos he is on right now

AA, if that doesn't do it for you with James, I don't know what will.

Few thoughts:
1. I keep posting on the wrong thread dammit.

2. LeBron is absolutely disgusting.

3. Mike Brown is a moron.

4. Doug Collins just said his first intelligent thing with "those few minutes LeBron rested are really helping right now" or something like that.

I've been lurking, checking back here every 15 minutes or so, thought I would chime in to agree with everyone about how bad Mike Brown is at coaching basketball and how great LeBron is at playing.

Nice job on the live-blogging marathon. I like how it's turned into sentence fragments ant exclamations.

WTH? They let him score again?

mookie said...
May 31, 2007, 11:54:00 PM  

well
Lebron's done everything he can
at this point they just need to pray that Detroit doesn't get a clean look from 3

Isn't this game Five, or is ESPN wrong on the crawl?

Shit, AA - guess it was a good choice to keep going after the first half.

Marv just got it wrong. The Cavs didn't beat Detroit - LeBron James beat Detroit.

May 31, 2007, 11:56:00 PM  

yeah AA i think you messed up the titles
well boys, it's been fun
the critics have been silenced
i'll be back for a game 6 live blog

Sam said...

HEY AA, does the sound of 48 points answer the critics like you?

That was the best NBA Game (end of-was working until 10:45) I have seen in 15 years. Maybe the in the top 3 personal performances. Amazing. Lebron, sir, I am now a believer.


WOW 27 in a row for him. 29 of 30?. I might have messed up the numbers but it doesn't matter. THat was simply unfreakin' believable.

AA- just saw the end of your blog entry. Great job by the way. I guess we agree on that unbelievable performance by Lebron and I'm now a believer as well. 29 of 30 is incredible. Unreal.
