    Yeah the D isn't easy to get used to in this game. Inside is very difficult as well. I never could score consistently in the paint until I got Bynum and improved Ty Thomas.

    Big run by the Cavs. Gibson getting in his groove.

    Hoping this series gets evened up as well.

    I'm getting totalled by every attack on Rookie. Really bad. Just don't know what I can do, every guard beats me on the dribble, every big man just hooks his way 40 points a game, I can't grab a rebound to save my life (last game I got out-rebounded by 40 boards).

    Pretty annoying.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Cut your teeth by playing as the help defenders first before going man defender. For guards it's pretty easy just hold back a little bit instead of being right in their face so you can cut across them if they go at the rim, if they have a great jumper it might hurt you a bit but try and get your hands up and into them if the launch one.

    Big men if they get the ball too close to the basket then forget about it best you can do is push up into them hard and try and contest. Key to rebounding is boxing out, if you're the closest guy make sure you wrap whoever you're guarding up and more often than not another of your guys collects the board.

    On ball steals are the key skill for D imo, if you get a lot of steals you can get a truckload of points on the break, most big men are susceptible to a help defender coming over and nicking it form them but you gotta watch out if they are good passers then it's an easy three for a shooter.

    On offence you gotta learn how to use screens and learn some of your team's plays and it becomes a lot easier.

    Why couldn't he play like this on my fantasy team.

    Another game that looks like it's going down to the wire.

    Note to Cleveland, hit a jumper, or stop going for 3's ffs. Last 5 of the 3rd, and start of the fourth, think they've hit 1 three from about 10 attempts (according to gamecast)

    Poor jumper from LeBron.
    Should have attacked the basket, and at least get free throws.

    This has been a hideous last few minutes. Close game but so many terrible possessions in a row.
