Game 3 (update)

Just came back from Eddie Jordan's pre-game chat with reporters and he said that while he thought about making a change and going with Gilbert Arenas as a starter, his plan is to stick with the same lineup he used in Games 1 and 2.

"We always think about Gilbert as a starter and it's going to have to be the right time and the right place," Jordan said. "Is this the right time and the right place? It still could be an 11th hour adjustment but as of right now, (7 p.m.) Antonio is starting."

Now (7:30 p.m.).it turns out that has changed. Gilbert will start. Maybe Eddie changed his mind or maybe he just wanted to keep Mike Brown and the Cavs guessing.

-DeShawn Stevenson and Andray Blatche will be wearing modified mohawks tonight and Nick Young has an 80's style high-top fade with a couple of parts. Not sure why but hey, it's the Wizards.

-Commissioner David Stern is here and he just spoke with reporters. He was asked about Brendan Haywood getting a flagrant 2 for the hard foul on James in Game 2 and said he agreed with the call because Haywood did not make an attempt to go for the ball.
"It was a good call," Stern said.

Comcast just broke the news that Gil's knee is aching and he might not play at all.

Looking for Bullets Forever?

They are experiencing technical difficulties.

Now Comcast is reporting that Gilbert is starting....go figure.

The first report came from Eddie's mouth....and then they were handed the starting card with Gil's name on it.

Mind games?

Mind games?

It's more like BS hype.

It's akin to the dj in the stadium playing fake cheer noise, or the announcer at a circus...

"come one, come all....Les Boulez are playing tonight!"

Roger Mason, a guy who's been hyped as going to get paid this offseason, hasn't done much these playoffs either.

None of the players have done anything in the playoffs.

Nothing else works, so let's all get new haircuts! Maybe that will make us suck less!

1st Q. Songaila could not make a point-blank shot, could not keep Varejao off the board, and threw the ball away on offense.

At least you're getting more accurate with the math, there, dude. It's been 44 years. When's the last time the Generals SNIFFED the second round?

Posted by: Anonymous | April 24, 2008 8:37 PM | Report abuse

Generals? Arent they the jobbers that lose on purpose to the Globetrotters?

Nice crowd, by the way. You could hear a pin drop.

Great game so far...Hopefully we will get that win!

Good 1st half for the Wiz. They gotta keep up the energy in the 2nd though, you know LeBron is going on a run sooner or later.

PLEASE UPDATE ON ARENAS INJURY!!!

I'm a pathetic Cleveland Fan. Can I please post on your blog? It's the only we can feel good about ourselves and city. We get happy about small accomplishments such as a 2-0 series lead to over compensate for the fact that our pathetic city hasn't been able to win ANY sports Championships. On top of all that, Lebron will opt out and leave us just like the Browns did. We won't have anyone else's nutz to slurp on anymore. I hope you understand. You will be seeing us around your blog a whole lot, we got 50 years to make up.


I know you guys won big tonight, but I'm sure me and other pathetic Cleveland Fans will continue to come to your site and talk trash. We talk trash even though our city hasn't won any championships, so why stop even if we got our butts kicked by 36 pts.
