<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/2010-nba-playoff-finals-preview-los-angeles-lakers-vs-boston-celtics"> The series is tied 1-1 but it might as well be nothing to nothing. After a full-court yellowwash on L.A.'s end, the Celtics bounced with help from the Ray-Raj brothers. Much like <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/2010-nba-playoff-finals-preview-los-angeles-lakers-vs-boston-celtics">the prophecies stated</a>, the momentum has been swinging like a pendulum.

Yes, Tony Allen Just Dunked On You, Antawn

By | 62 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/tss-2010-nba-playoff-preview-eastern-conference-semi-finals-boston-celtics-vs-cleveland-cavaliers"> Well, Cleveland got exiled from the playoffs once again, this time at the hands of the C's. As much as I despise Boston (90% due to Paul Pierce), I gotta hand it to them for showing that five is greater than one: or none in the case of game five. In the meantime, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/tony-allen">Tony Allen's</a> monstrous dunk over Sweet n' Lo Jamison deserves some burn since it pretty much caps how Boston beat the Lebroners: swiftly, efficiently and, according to some, unexpectedly.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/tss-2010-nba-playoff-preview-western-conference-semi-finals-phoenix-suns-vs-san-antonio-spurs"> On the surface, calling the San Antonio Spurs and Phoenix Suns history a "rivarly" may not be accurate. The Spurs have clipped the Suns four times in the past five seasons. But while it may not be a "rivalry" in the literal sense, bad blood most definitely remains. Losing to a team multiple times over multiple years fosters and helps build that sense of resentment. The lasting image of Robert Horry <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcIhHOplWws">shoulder-checking Steve Nash</a> into the announcers table is one of the more memorable and infamous events in playoff history.
