    Fast and Furious Floppers vs. LeBron and the Frontrunners

    Game 1 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 2 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 3 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 4 Full Play-by-Play

    A sellout crowd in Seattle was ready to welcome a team from Oklahoma City. The crowd wanted blood; their team did not disappoint. LeBron James ad a triple double - 26 points, 14 assists, and 13 rebounds - Al Horford nearly had one - 18 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists - and Kevin Martin poured in 27 points on 10-of-15 shooting (including 5/6 from outside) as the Frontrunners buried the Floppers. This was a one-sided game best described using the words "ass" and "kicking".

    A return home brought about a better performance from the Floppers, but not a different results in terms of Ls and Ws. The LeBron-Derron show proved too much to handle; James got another triple double (23 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds) and Williams scored 31 points and had 7 rebounds and 7 assists. That, along with 20 and 10 from Dirk Nowitzki and 13 and 11 from Al Horford was enough to hold off a balanced attack from the Floppers.

    Three games against the Floppers. Three triple-doubles from LeBron James. Three victories for the Frontrunners. James had 20 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists as his team coasted to another win.

    A return to Seattle brought the end of LeBron's triple-double streak, but another thrashing by the Frontrunners, and a four-game sweep. James scored 36 points and handed out 10 assists, but "only" grabbed 8 rebounds. But, a monster niht from Al Horford (22 points and 18 rebounds) was enough to offset a great game by LeMarcus Aldridge (22 points, 21 rebounds, 10 of those on the offensive glass) and get the series sweep.

    L.A. Courtsiders vs. Shaqtastic - 29 Points

    Game 1 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 2 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 3 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 4 Full Play-by-Play

    Kobe Bryant got increased minutes. Kobe Bryant also saw Shaq on the opposing bench. It's unclear which one really uncorked the Black Mamba, but he was uncorked for this game. Kobe poured in 44 points as he lead his team to a home win over Shaq's team. Kyrie Irving and John Wall tried to match Kobe - scoring a combined 35 points and handing out a combined 22 assists - but their poor shooting from the outside (a combined 2/8) undid them.

    The second game saw the Black Mamba bottled up - largely due to foul trouble - and Uncle Drew getting uncorked. Kobe scored only four points, and Irving exploded for 41, and Shaqtastic rallied to even the series. J.J. Hickson (18 points and 20 rebounds) and Andre Drummond (12 points, 16 rebounds) helped to create a dominant inside presence, and helped their team build a 63-39 rebounding advantage that helped them roll to a dominating victory.

    More foul trouble for Kobe Bryant meant plenty of space to operate for the guards on Shaqtastic. And that combination doomed the LA Courtsiders to another road loss. Kyrie Irving and John Wall both took advantage of the lack of Kobe's defense due to fouls and each scored 30 points, while Hickson and Drummond again controlled the inside.

    Back at the Forum, Kobe was cold, and is teammates were colder. Bryant shot 6/18, his team as a whole shot 32.5% from the field, and Shaqtastic took the series 3-1. Shaqtastic used that cold shooting, as well as a 62-47 rebounding edge (fueled by 10 each from Drummond and Garnett, and 20 from Hickson) to get the win.

    Well, at least I got one game here, so I can live with that. It's like I'm following the Lakers (work with me here) from '04-07 all over again. :p Maybe I'll do better for the next SIM?

    The Knight Shift vs. BLEACH

    Game 1 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 2 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 3 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 4 Full Play-by-Play

    BLEACH?!?!?!?! continued a stunning run, using strong games from Paul Pierce and Tim Duncan and a serious edge at the charity stripe to down The Knight Shift. Pierce had 25 points and 10 rebounds, Duncan had 23 points, and 16 rebounds, and BLEACH?!?!?!?! had a 26-6 edge in free throws attempted. The Knight Shift spent too much time on outside shots, shooting 25 of them.

    Tim Duncan took it to yet another level, and BLEACH?!?!?!?! took another win. Duncan scored 31 points and grabbed 21 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday showed great command and poise of the offense, scoring 21 points and handing out 11 assists. Rudy Gay and Kevin Love combined for 0-for-8 shooting from beyond the arc, and a frustrated Chris Paul scored 22 points, but picked up 5 fouls.

    Right now, there's just no stopping BLEACH?!?!?!?!. Trailing by four with 30 seconds to play, it seemed BLEACH?!?!?!?! might finally cool down a little. But, Jrue Holiday knocked down a triple with 25 seconds left, and defensive pressure caused a turnover by Brandon Jennings. That gave Joe Johnson a chance to win it at the buzzer. And the ball left his hand, and found nothing by nylon, as BLEACH?!?!?!?! stole the win from The Knight Shift. Tim Duncan was a wrecking ball again, scoring 14 points and grabbing 17 rebounds, and Chris Paul was just barely denied a triple double (9 points, 8 rebounds, 14 assists) in the losing effort.

    Returning home, full of confidence, and looking for the sweep, BLEACH?!?!?!?! got the win and took all four games from The Knight Shift. Tim Duncan scored 16 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, David Lee scored 23 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, and Paul Pierce scored 23 points and grabbed 9 rebounds, while Bobby Knight threw a chair at Kevin Love.

    Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club vs. Heads for Hibbert

    Game 1 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 2 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 3 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 4 Full Play-by-Play

    Heads for Hibbert absolutely dominated the fourth quarter, turning a 7-point deficit into a 9 point victory. With 6:24 remaining, Chris Bosh hit a jumper for Sgt. Pepper to put them up 96-87. That was the last time Sgt. Pepper would score all game. The 0-for-13 stretch to end the game robbed Sgt. Pepper from what would have been a great road performance.

    Sgt. Pepper rebounded in the return match. 33 points and 10 rebounds from Russel Westbrook, along with 14 points and 12 rebounds from Chris Bosh and 11 points, 12 rebounds from Marc Gasol powered them to even the series. There was a bit of deja vu, as Sgt. Pepper once again had a seven point lead entering the final quarter, but they would not fold this time.

    For the third time in the series, Sgt. Pepper entered the 4th quarter with a lead. For the second time, Heads for Hibbert used a strong fourth quarter to steal a win. A back-and-forth closing period saw Hibbert finally take the lead with 1:46 to play, and good free throw shooting from Steph Curry and Paul George down the stretch sealed the win. Curry scored 30 for the game, and Hibbert added 16/11 off the bench. Marc Gasol put up 23/15 in a losing effort, but Sgt. Pepper couldn't overcome ice cold shooting (2/15) from downtown.

    Heads for Hibbert didn't let it come down to the quarter in the finale. A dominating first quarter had them up 38 after the first quarter, letting them coast to victory. Sgt. Pepper went six-and-a-half minutes between scoring in the first quarter, and during that span their deficit grew from 9 points to 32 points. Steph Curry and Paul George combined to bury the Loney Heart's Club with a combined 50 points and 11-of-14 shooting from deep.

    The Tune Squad vs. 10 Points for Griffindor

    Game 1 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 2 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 3 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 4 Full Play-by-Play

    For the second quarter, it seemed as if Griffindor could not miss. Of course, they didn't miss much all game. It was 42 points for Griffindor in the second quarter, and 57% shooting for the game. Blake Griffin lead the way with 22 points on 10/16 shooting, while Nikola Vucevic scored 14 and Grabbed 13 rebounds, Josh Smith scored 13 points and dished out 10 assists, and Jameer Nelson hit three of his four three-point attempts.

    Griffindor's hot shooting cooled a bit for the second game - down to 45.8% - and they had to hold their breath at the buzzer, but they were able to escape with a win. Damian Lillard had a look at the basket at the buzzer, but his jump hook wasn't true, and his team fell two points shy.

    Griffindor didn't let game three come down to the wire. Dwyane Wade scored 22 points, and Greg Monroe had 14 points and 14 rebounds, but that wasn't enough to get The Tune Squad their first win of the series. Bot teams were cold from the outside - Griffindor shot 2/12 and Tune Squad 3/13 - but some key defense off the bench from Jameer Nelson helped fuel the win for Griffindor.

    21 points from Kenneth Faried, 20 from Damian Lillard, and a mistake-laden ame from Nicolas Batum was enough for The Tune Squad to leave the series with a win. Batum had more turnovers (4) than assists (3), and that helped The Tune Squad overcome a block party from Griffindor.

    Boogie and the Indecisions vs. Game, Blouses

    Game 1 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 2 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 3 Full Play-by-Play
    Game 4 Full Play-by-Play

    A smart, efficient game from Boogie and the Indecisions helped them to a win in the start of their east coast-west coast series. Boogie and the Indecisions forced 16 turnovers and got 11 steals, while committing only 7 personal fouls. Conversely, they got the charity stripe 20 times, and converted 90% of those, using those points to fuel their victory. Kevin Durant lead the way with 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 9 assists, and was a perfect 8/8 from the free throw line.

    Boogie got an even better game 2 from Durant to steal one on the road. Durant scored 42 points on a sizzling 14/18 from the floor, including 4/5 from beyond the arc, and an impressive 10/11 from the charity stripe to fuel the victory. Rajon Rondo added 18 points and 17 assists, DeMarcus Cousins scored 26 points in only 26 minutes. Tony Parkers 26 points on 11/15 shooting wasn't enough for his team in this high octane shootout.

    Both teams kept up their hot shooting. Boogie kept shooting just a little hotter. Kevin Durant kept providing the right spark. Boogie got another win. Game, Blouses shot 50% from the floor, but Boogie shot 55%. Kevin Durant scored 32 points, and had 7 assists and 7 rebounds. Game, Blouses was left searching for answers.

    Those answers didn't come in game four. Kevin Durant stayed hot - 28 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, and 4/6 shooting from downtown - as his team powered through to the sweep. Game, Blouses had a shot to steal this one late. Tony Parker scored with 11 seconds left, to make it a two-point game, but Kevin Durant made both free throws, and J.R. Smith missed a three, and Boogie left with the win once again.
