    I can't believe Mrs Inty is awake with you. She deserves a medal.

    Has anyone checked to see if Tim Donaghy (or an associate) placed a bet on this game on the foul over/under?

    NICE LAYUP BY KOBE! dang.

    better analysis than me trika. i missed that.

    irritating for melo to have two fouls too. and now they're in the penalty after paul's foul. not particularly good given the refs.

    EDIT

    LOL.

    steal... steal... steal... steal... layup/foul. sheesh.

    AND ANOTHER! wow.

    Well, when the alarm clock goes off ... :p


    And her thinking was: you'll probably wake me up shouting about some LeBron James dunk anyways, so I might as well get up and watch the game

    Ok, I can't decide if that turnover-series was ugly or incredible. Probably ugly :(

    actually, i'd call it incredible. if for no other reason that there wasn't a foul called on it.

    pretty kewl/exasperating to watch too.

    D-Wade is having a helluva game so far. I think he wants a T-Mobile commercial with Chuck, where Chuck can tell him about elbowing Angola.


    and a b-e-a-utiful three from LeBron

    hey! kobe didn't take the shot! amazing. too bad the play brokedown.

    and spain freaking wants this game. good call bringing in prince. and taking out kobe and james.

    EDIT

    prince has been pretty spectacular in a more silent manner. just in the right place at the right time, and an amazing defender. and dang, that's some info i had no clue about him. no wonder he gets tired.

    WOW! wade again!

    I feel dirty cheering so hard for Tayshaun Prince. :(

    At least it isn't Boozer ...

    Yet again: D-Wade: :eek:

    three, three... wow.

    i like players more than i do teams. i like prince, he's a good guy. shouldn't feel dirty cheering for someone who's a truely good person, and ball player. it's their TEAM you feel dirty about.

    Ugly. Most definitely, R...J. And Kobe is looking like he's dribbling JV girls' basketball-style, so it all fits together sometimes.

    Incredible for no fouls, though; Trimaj is right. :p

    USA getting some nice looks inside and then throw the ball away. Arrrrrg.

    EDIT: This post is obviously the result of a time-out on my computer from about ten minutes ago. :p

    it's their TEAM you feel dirty about.

    Teams: Detroit AND Kentucky :p

    Also, Trika: have you had the thought yet that this is a normal FINAL score for a college game?

    EDIT: markups :p Stupid keyboard...

    nice D to end the half. I'm actually a little surprised, given how his first half went, that Wade missed that last shot.

    Yeah, thats his first miss, I think. Impressive nonetheless.

    Whoa... are you in my brainz? I looked at the score right when Rodriguez made that comment to Paul and thought that.

    i HATE kentucky. they must die!

    yea... that is pretty danged crazy.

    not quite sure what to think about the first half. it's been fun to watch, other than the sloppiness. we're shooting well, 8/13. defense has been... less than stellar though, which needs to be fixed.
