    NBA Playoffs Thread

    Am I missing one, or is there no thread for this yet?

    Bulls thoroughly dominated the Sixers earlier, but Rose suffered a cringeworthy knee injury while inexplicably still in with 1:23 left. Looks like it could have been an ACL/MCL... huge. Greyboard's posts from a few weeks ago about the risks of relying on hard-charging PGs looking very prescient all of a sudden.

    Meanwhile, the Heat are starting to run the Knicks out of the building as of halftime. Chandler setting some head-scratchingly dirty screens (clocked James from behind pretty bad just before halftime, although it didn't look like a flagrant to me), but Battier playing terrific - hit several threes, blocking shots, drawing charges, scrapping on the boards; he's been really fun to watch today.

    Did Seth Greenberg take a job as a special assistant for the Knicks? This meltdown is impressive.

    D Rose Gone

    Dang, Derrick Rose reportedly gone with ACL and MCL tears. Terrible news.

    ADDENDUM: Disregard - the NBC affiliate that reported this has retracted their initial report. Details have not been confirmed.

    I think this is proof that the Knicks NEED Calipari. John, please go save the Knicks and leave college basketball ALONE.

    Ouch, Shumpert down with another brutal-looking non-contact knee injury. Tough day so far for guards and knees. Somewhere, greybeard is stroking his beard wisely...

    ETA: WOW, that is terrible news dukedoc. Absolutely hate to see something so completely destructive like that happen to one of the greats just as he's entering the prime of his career.

    The NBC outlet that reported the D Rose injury news is now retracting it. Sorry, I didn't mean to monger. I saw it was an NBC affiliate and thought that was adequate. Apparently the exact details are still unclear.

    Lebron James trailing the New York Knicks 47-32 after 3 quarters. Hopefully he can step it up in the 4th.

    Shane (with some help from Lebron) is doing a terrific job on Carmelo. I've never been a Heat fan, but it's great to see him playing such an integral role on such a great team.

    ESPN just reported that Rose did, indeed, tear his ACL. Terrible news.

    Yeah, it is. I was really looking forward to Bulls vs. Heat.

    I really fear for D-Rose's future. I just don't know how after this year he can continue to be the type of player that he was. If you're Chicago though, you can't do anything about it right now, just have to stay behind him and hope that he can return to himself. This is a devastating injury and I feel so bad for that team who I thoroughly enjoy watching play.

    Battier absolutely shut Anthony down. The Heat are getting exactly what they expect out of Shane when they signed him.

    The Rose injury has to be devastating for the Bulls. Just bad luck all season.

    As for the Shumpert injury, if it is bad, who's going to guard Wade?

    Dwight Howard isn't even at the Magic-Pacers game. I know that he probably had to because of surgery, but it just doesn't seem right.

    Celtics are the only team who can give the Heat trouble in the East. Seems like the West could be won by a number of teams: Spurs, Thunder, Lakers, Grizz. I like the Spurs coming out of the West and beating the Heat in the finals. Whether or not Stern allows back to back non "superstar/flashy" teams to win the NBA title will be interesting to see.

    I've always liked the NBA playoffs post first round because the matchups are usually real competitive. The intensity is high and the players seem to play with more pride. The only thing that bugs me and it is an all the time thing in the NBA is the flopping by stars and the calls they get.

    Hansbrough still verbally flopping his way to the line, I see. I would love to never have to hear "Hansbrough to the rim [blaaaauuurghhh]... late call, foul" again.

    ETA: Man, Duhon does not look good...

    Nah, its better for the team that he isnt there. Hope he doesnt show up when they are at home either. Dwightmare.

    No, he played 10 minutes with 1 assist and 2 turnovers. Not his strongest performance, but I thought made up for it.

    Thanks for the link Acymetric, should have put some more effort in, but alas, I didn't
