It's the verbal Herman Munster, the word enhancer,
sick of phony mobsters controllin' the dance floor
I been in dark places, catch you when you stark naked
Your heart races as we pump you for your chart spaces...
Game Four of the Western Conference Finals saw the Nuggets take it to the Lakers to even the series at two games apiece...
-Every "effort" stat was in favor of the Nugs, most noticably the rebounding, where the home team was dominant. The threesome of KMart, Birdman, and Nene (sounds like a travelling carnival act) simply outworked the Lakers in the paint. Each did what they usually are called upon to do plus more: KMart worked on the defense, even fronting Kobe at times. Bird was the usual energy guy, his block on Shannon Brown whipped the crowd into a frenzy that extended the rest of the night. Nene played his great game and added some svelte assists to open up the floor.
-Melo had stomach issues before the game and was throwing up. Damn, I shouldn't have put out that undercooked beef for him to eat. My fault, Melo.
-Dahntay Jones' trip on Kobe will probably result in some sort of foul "upgrade" from the league office, in part to Phil Jackson's whining and Kobe's sarcastic post game comments. The whole review process is taking on an NFL-like angle that is getting tiring. What's next? Red cards and yellow cards? Let the calls on the floor be the final word.
-Kudos to the server on the floor who had the ref bump into him and spill his tray of drinks. Anyone ever notice that guy looks like a mini Joakim Noah? Did you see the Slushy Gutter alums on the floor sucking up the spilled beer?
-JR Smith is like that jackass at your work who is constantly jerking around, playing pranks, talking shit, but when it comes to crunch time he delivers that crazy presentation with mad pie charts and laser pointers and a fly spread of bagels and cream cheese and the big box of fresh coffee. With Melo ailing, he took on the slashing and scoring from the perimeter. Some of his passes, shots, celebrations, and fouls made everyone cringe, but in the end his 24 points were ultimatley what got the team the win.
-The series is getting more and more physical and the Nuggets' seem to be hitting their muscle stride in Game Four. The bench specifically outmuscled their LAL counterparts. Linas Kleiza got deep for a few rugged boards and Anthony Carter isn't afraid to use his fouls in a rought and tumble variety.
