Indiana Pacers vs. Washington Wizards
“IT’S GAME 6! WIN OR GO HOME! ARE. YOU. READDDYYYYYYY???”
That was a sick intro, especially when they dropped the “Trophies” instrumental, but to be honest this game was pretty dull until about mid-way through the third quarter. Up until then, the Pacers had held a comfortable lead.
That isn’t to say there weren’t some nice plays, like here are a few from Lance Stephenson, but the game was just kind of passing by, like a raft floating down a river.
But then all of a sudden, the Zards woke up, and made a furious comeback thanks to John Wall and Bradley Beal.
TO BALL LIKE WALL BOY YOU GOTTA TO THE DANCE.
BEAL BEFORE ZOD.
Just gonna leave this here. (You should’ve believed me about the Wizards’ fans and their photoshops.)

But then after that Beal three it was all Pacers. Indiana showed their playoff experience down the stretch, taking their cues from David West, who was a problem, dropping 29 on the night.

The Clippers were dominating this game early, going up by as much as 16 at one point in the first half, and eventually going into halftime up eight. But then Kevin Durant decided that was enough fooling around.
KD scored the Thunder’s first seven points after the break, and also hit shots like this.
The Clippers still held a decent lead, however, and were doing Clipper like things.
And then this happened, which like, I know Reggie Jackson can dunk, but woooo this was nice.
Lol. Good for this woman. I’m 1000% sure the guy deserved it.
That’s so swag RT @SpearsNBAYahoo: Peeved girl sitting courtside jumped out her seat, poured a beer on date, took pic of him wet, left.

Eventually the Thunder took the lead a few minutes into the fourth quarter though, and that was a wrap.
Even Nick Collison was dropping dimes.
Although the Clippers are great, they don’t have Kevin Durant, and sometimes–#wellactually a lot of times–Kevin Durant is just too much. Last night was one of those times.
Plus he’s got Rihanna on his side, and it’s hard to argue with that.
Congrats to my R.O.C. brother @KDTrey5 !!! Great game tonight OKC
