What's Up with King James?

Lebron has started off in a serious slump during the Celtics-Cavs series. While he continues to do more than just score for his team, his heroic scoring performances have been sorely missed. You'd have to believe when things get back to Cleveland, Lebron will be in full gear and ready to go. The Celts are now up 2-0 on the team that was last year's East rep for the Finals.

About the Cavs, they are definitely a talented and deep team. However, people overlook the fact that they really changed up their team midseason, with the acquisition of guys like Sczerbiak, Delonte West and Ben Wallace. I'm a strong proponent of the concept that mixing up a team can hurt its chemistry. The Cavs still compete and are hanging around with the Celtics, but some fans are already calling for the dismal of head coach Mike Brown.

In the other game from Thursday night, the Spurs got themselves back into their series with New Orleans. It's 2-1 Hornets. Ginobli and Parker each had 31 for San Antonio. If the Spurs tie this up I can easily see it going the full 7 games, making for a potentially classic series in the West. I anticipate another classic like that should Billups be healthy and the Pistons meet the Celtics in the Eastern finals. For some reason I think if the Spurs make the next round against the Lakers, I'd give San Antonio the edge. If its Lakers-Hornets it could really go either way.

Friday night the Jazz will look to get back into their series with LA, and should. The Jazz had the best homecourt record of the past season, so many are guaranteeing a W for the Lakers' first playoff loss.
