DIME MAG SMACK: Scottie and Co. completely blew it

First of all, before we get to the unbelievable day of games yesterday we've got to hit you with this story. One of our boys was in the NBC studios for the NBA games the other day. He told us that Tom Tolbert, for the most part at least, was dressed for his TV face time. He was wearing a turtleneck and a blazer sitting behind the desk for the cameras. His pants, though? A pair of those old school Jams Hawaiian shorts with the huge floral prints on them. Scottie Pippen, what the hell was that? Scottie and Co. completely blew it at the end against the Lakers, handing L.A. the series. With the game seemingly locked up for his Blazers, he missed a crucial foul shot and then threw away an inbounds pass to Rasheed on their last chance to win the game with 2 seconds left. How clutch is Robert Horry? He's quietly one of most money players in the League. Dude lays low all season, then makes it his business to cut the hearts out of teams in the playoffs with huge treys down the stretch. Yesterday wasn't any different, when he dropped a dagger from the corner with 2 seconds left, setting up Pippen's turnover.

Did you catch AI's kicks yesterday? He went with the original Questions instead of his latest line. He was ridiculous by the way, giving Boston 42 and forcing the series to another game. Let us ask you a question though? When was the last time you saw AI dunk? He used to hammer all the time, now he's just content to always lay it in. How about Derrick Coleman somehow getting his ass off the ground for that crucial tip-in down the stretch? No one saw that coming. Who would've thought that a guy who looked like he was refusing to play any kind of D down the stretch of an elimination game would come up with enough hustle to come flying in from outside the lane for an O-board? You've got to love T-Mac. He's so nice, he knows it and he'll tell you all about it all day long. Of Baron Davis and his 32 point, 14-board performance against T-Mac's Magic: "He's not the best player (in this series). I am. No question, no question." We'd be remiss not to mention Dirk and the show he put on yesterday afternoon. 39 and 17? He's so sick. Is it us or does he really get better every single game? We're out like the Blazers.
