Hoooooly Crap.

So a co-worker of my friend offered him some tix to last night's Cavs-Wizards game, and he in turn offered me one. Due to way too much stuff going on at home, I have only been able to very casually follow the Cavs this season and in the playoffs. This was also my first playoff game (for any sport) that I've ever attended.

What the hell was up with the horrible, horrible officiating in the first three quarters? The only good thing was that by the fourth, the dumb calls finally stopped. I don't know if it made it on TV, but the crowd did a WWE-worthy "Bullshit" chant after LeBron's 4th foul.

Speaking of which, MAJOR kudos to the Cavs for not only hanging on, but actually extending the lead with James on the bench. Larry Hughes and Flip Murray really stepped up.

I don't know why we were chanting "De-fense" all night long when the Wiz had the ball; that just seemed to encourage Arenas and Jameson (and later Butler) to just score at will.

Likewise, I love Z, but I hope he stays on the bench in the remaining game(s). Washington just runs right past him.

The end of regulation sucked the life out of the building when the Wiz completed the comeback, but the whole building was LOUD as OT continued. Snow put on a heckuva show early on in OT, and James of course brought the house down.

You know who were NOT witnesses? The five guys on the floor whose job it was to defend LeBron at the end, cause there's no way that they should have allowed him to get that close.

Don't get me wrong, it was a hell of a game and a hell of a win. But that was some really bad defense by Washington.

Great baseline move - loved LeBron's comment after the game that if he had a size 18 or 19 foot that he would have been out of bounds but he has a size 16 so he was safe.

The James-Arenas show has been fun to watch....

WHY didn't they call their last full timeout and ADVANCE THE BALL? 0.9 should have been enough time for a decent inbound/maybe a dribble/set/shoot to try to win it.

TURRIBLE brain fart by Eddie Jordan for not reminding the Wiz they had a timeout and they should have USED it.

Heh, no, they were witnesses-- as in "spectators", because they might as well have been watching from the stands for all the good they were able to do on that last play.

But what a heck of a play, though. I wonder if that will be considered one of LeBron's first signature plays. "The Layup", or something.

On another note, it's not enough to really irritate me or anything, but the "We are all witnesses" catchphrase for LeBron strikes me as being mildly sacriligious.
