Great weekend of basketball in the NBA. How about the Western Conference. Only 4 and a half games separate 1st and the 8th and final playoff spot. A slump could cost any team a post season berth.
The Blazers posted another exciting victory this weekend.. They beat the Knicks in New York on Saturday and now have 33 wins...one more than all of last year. They need to go 9-10 over the last 19 games to finish above 500.
They play Cleveland tonight...and I'm going to be home on the couch watching. Lebron James has averaged 40 pts a game for the Month of March. It should be another entertaining game.
How about the Rockets? Great job by Head Coach Rick Adelman. He has the Rockets playing team ball and they have now won 18 straight...six in a row I believe without Yao.
The Suns beat the Spurs so a big win for them as they try to find success with Shaq...and Kobe Bryant missed that last second shot as the Lakers lost to the Kings.
The final six weeks are going to be a whole lot of fun and pretty exciting in the wild, wild west.
