Bullets Forever Game Thread: Wizards vs. Cavaliers Game 3

Updated: April 24, 2008

TAI: Uh oh….if you’ve somehow found your way to this blog, that means that SB Nation still has Bullets Forever held hostage with technical difficulties…..I smell hints of a Cleveland conspiracy (just kidding….maybe). Now begin the game 3 thread from BF’s Jake The Snake:

(Hey guys, sorry about the technical difficulties over at Bullets Forever today, I can assure that all the SB Nation tech gurus are doing their best to get things back to normal as soon as possible. Until then, many thanks to Truth for graciously allowing us to host the game thread for tonight’s game here. -Jake)

The Essentials:
Eastern Conference Quarterfinals Game 3 (Cavs up 2-0)
Verizon Center
8 p.m.

Tonight’s Lines
Cavs at Wizards: Wizards by 5
Over/Under on total points: 198

Well folks, this is it. A win tonight puts the Wizards right back in this thing and a loss would pretty much end it. You never want to say that the Wizards couldn’t win 4 games in a row, but it would be awfully, awfully difficult.

I think we all know what needs to happen tonight (more ball movement, keep LeBron from getting into the lane, hit open shots, not get caught up in fouling, etc.) and after the debacle in Game 2, I have no worries that the Wizards will be able to recommit themselves tonight in front of (hopefully) rockin’, monochromatic crowd.

This is an open thread, so if you’re as stunned by Damon Jones’ coat as Chuck is, talk about it here.

    Not a lot of good omens….

    First Comcast reported that Gil had a pain in his knee and might not play at all….then at 7:30, Phil C and Steve Buck were handed the starting card with Arenas’ name on it.

    Bullets Forever is down….

    What on earth is going on???

  • JakeTheSnake

    Yeah, this whole thing is strange. Maybe Eddie thought it would be some kind of a psychological boost?

  • JakeTheSnake

    Now the question becomes can we win by 30 too? If so, major psychological advantage to the Wizards.

    If nothing else, we have the advantage in using the word psychological.

    Not sure I like the overrated chant from the crowd. LeBron sure got a chuckle while he was at the line.

    Comcast just reported that Gil and LeBron are having somewhat of a war of words….

    What the hell is Arenas doing? He’s hurt on the damn bench.

    The Wizards cannot get cocky after this game.

  • JakeTheSnake

    Yeah, I’m not sure that was a good look either. At least they’re making noise I guess.

  • Truth About It

    I guess I had hope that the Wizards (DeShawn and Gilbert) would be humbled by the first two games and would thus ride this win into the sunset in a classy manner.
