Well, we’re getting one Game 7 at least, and it should be a monster.
Not to get negative, but we’ve got a pretty bad feeling about the reality of Lakers-Clippers after the Suns won in OT last night. Kobe put up 50, but Los Angeles can’t seem to get in that defensive groove they were in during the early part of the series.
With Raja Bell’s face watching from an LA restaurant and Tim Thomas talking trash to Jack Nicholson, the Suns now have the momentum, confidence, and home court in their favor for tomorrow night.
Jack Nicholson was trying to put the voodoo fingers on Thomas and the Suns’ midseason acquistion savior did right back at The Joker, adding “We’re going to get one – the big one.” He did, knocking down the tying shot with 6.3 seconds to go in regulation.
“After those two misses, I said to myself, ‘If I get another look, it’s going down,’.” said Thomas, who scored 21 in 36 reserve minutes. “I don’t think anybody in Phoenix should use any gas Saturday. Just walk to the arena and let us use all the energy.”
There’s a lot of things that bug us on a day-to-day basis, but one that stands out almost as much as Eddie Jordan’s odd hairline is this “All-New Tim Thomas”.
We really feel like this guy should be prohibited from doing that “pull your jersey back from your chest” move, as well as all the other cocky things he does.
This is a guy who’s been a lazy, overpaid, underachieving cancer to every team he been on, and now that he’s sniffing the magic dust of playing with Steve Nash, even the announcers are giving him a pass, saying he just “never got a fair shake” in other places.
Seriously, not only should he have to remain humble and quiet at all times, but we think he should have to wear some kind of scarlett letter signifying Chicago was willing to pay him fourteen million dollars to sit at home only 4 months ago.
The Lakers shot 55% last night, but look – you guys can’t run with the PHX. You just can’t, so stop it. Make it a 57-45 game if you need to, but slow it down, give Smush Parker some Paxil, and stop allowing Tim Thomas to have happiness in his life. Keys to the game, right there.
