NBA Playoffs: Thursday Night Reactions

Not much reaction to talk about as the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder both powered their way to a commanding 3-0 lead.  The Heat have definitely put the clamps on the Knicks, and that series should be over with game 4.  The Thunder put themselves in the driver’s seat after demolishing the defending champs.  I think Dallas could put together a win just to keep the series alive, but if Oklahoma City did what they did last night, this series is over.

What stars stepped up in these games?  

It’s the usual suspects as Lebron James put up 32 points in the Heat win.  Kevin Durant lead the way with his 31 points for the Thunder.  Two guys in the MVP talk, and two guys who might be in line for a NBA Finals MVP if they make it there.

What can the Knicks do to make even get a win?  

It’s hard telling at this rate.  The Heat look so impressive in their wins, I don’t think that even getting closer than 10 points is happening for the Knicks.  Carmelo Anthony has to get the rest of his team to step up their game, and they have to slow down Lebron.

What can the Mavericks do to keep their series going?

Well at least game four is at home for the Mavs, and with the beating they took last night, that has to be some motivation for playing better. They have to put their A game out there, and hope the Thunder fall apart.
