Westbrook and Lillard Scuffle As Paul George Proves His Shoulder Is Fine

Paul George, AKA Playoff P, has been struggling with a shoulder injury for the better part of the month. Judging from his 4/15 3PT shooting performance in game 1 of this year’s Western Conference First Round, it was not getting any better. Even Dr. Tracy McGrady M.D. (made-up doctorate) thought he had a torn labrum. Game 2 has seen a completely different Playoff P though. Watch:

Maybe a little discomfort, but George is showing no signs of stopping.

So disrespectful on so many levels. Throws Harkless to the ground as he drains the step back, then the OKC bench encourages him to get up. Ruthless. But it’s a Western Conference Playoff game, of course, it is going to get chippy. It finally came to a head right before halftime.

Russell Westbrook and Damian Lillard, the two best players in this matchup, have been tasked with guarding each other. Two big egos going after each other every play was surely going to spark some type of temper flair.

This honestly makes me wonder if these guys know there are cameras on them at all times. You can’t just continually push somebody after the whistle and expect nothing back. And on top of that, you can’t be so obvious with your flops with the officials right in front of you. Russ threw himself to the ground like a 3 year old having a tantrum. Luckily for them, no fouls were call due to the scuffle.

The Rockets/Jazz Halftime Show Was A Million Times Better Than the Game

The Rockets vs Jazz first round of the Western Conference Playoffs game was in a word: underwhelming. A 30 point blowout, never a close score from the third quarter on, basically, the perfect game to skip while you watched the Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere instead. We all thought that we didn’t miss anything, but that is just plain wrong. Gamewise, you missed nothing. The Halftime show though, was one for the books.

I mean, it can’t get better than that, can it? Just you wait.

What would you rather watch? James Harden flopping every other possession and Jazz defenders getting upset about being called for a foul they were 5 feet away from OR some dude making another guy do flips with his feet? I’m going feet flips 7 days a week and twice on Sunday.
