    Rips ankle -

    X rays taken after the game were negative and the injury is not thought to be serious. Pistons coach Flip Saunders said that had the game been close, Hamilton could have come back.

    Hamilton, the Pistons' leading scorer Sunday, is listed as day-to-day. The training staff will evaluate him at today's practice -- the first of two off days before the Pistons and Bucks meet Wednesday night for Game 2.

    Here are my thoughts on each playoff series so far. The only game I did not watch at least half of was the Spurs vs Kings game.



    This is after game 1.

    Pistons won't have any trouble, they will more or less toy with the Bucks and win in 4 or 5 . The only way it goes 5 though is if Redd explodes for 8 or 9 threes in a game. Most likely a sweep.

    Spurs, will beat the Kings, but it won't be that easy, but without seeing game 1, I don't know.

    The Heat vs Bulls, I don't know what to make of this series. Game 1 was the best game of the weekend. Heat will win the series, but the Bulls play so hard and play the right way all the time. This is that series where every game will be close (or almost every game) and yet it goes only 5. Bulls have trouble winning close games and Wade can win any game

    Cavs vs Wizards - This is going 7 games, no doubt in my mind about that. Cavs will win though.

    Lakers vs Suns - this will be a long and windy series, a lot of twists and turns, road teams winning and I give the Lakers a good chance to win this series.

    Clippers vs Nuggets - probably the best series in the first round, will go 7 games, and be almost a classic. Not sure who wins

    Mavs vs Grizz. Mavs are simply better, and will win the series, no doubt about that, but the Grizzlies will get their first ever playoff win, and it will be a decently competitive series.,

    Oh I almost forgot

    Pacers vs Nets - I still believe the Net are going to win the series. But now it will go 6 or 7 games

    Artest's Hard Foul Under League Review
    http://www.realgm.com/src_wiretap_ar...league_review/

    San Antonio Express-News - According to the San Antonio Express-News, the NBA is reviewing whether Ron Artest's foul on Manu Ginobili in Saturday's game warrants being upgraded to a flagrant violation, a league official said Sunday.

    Artest hit Ginobili in the side of the face with his forearm early in the third quarter of the Spurs' 122-88 victory. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich immediately complained to the officials that Artest deserved a flagrant foul.

    If the foul is upgraded to a flagrant 1 penalty, Artest could receive a small fine, if that. In the less likely event the league decided to change it to a flagrant 2 foul, Artest could be suspended for Tuesday's game.

    Those Bulls are tough. They were down 21, but got the lead down to 4 with 1:15 left in the 4th.

    I picked the Clippers to win in 6. Now i'm thinking they'll win in 4 or 5.

    Sources: Mavs' Johnson honored, Dirk snubbed
    By EDDIE SEFKO
    The Dallas Morning News

    Avery Johnson will be honored with one of the NBA's two biggest individual awards today when he is named the league's coach of the year, numerous sources said Monday.

    However, the league's other major piece of hardware – the MVP trophy – will elude Dirk Nowitzki, a source said. While it was unknown who will win the MVP, it will not be Nowitzki, who was lumped with Phoenix's Steve Nash, Cleveland's LeBron James, Detroit's Chauncey Billups and the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant as legitimate candidates.

    Johnson, in his first full season as Mavericks coach, won the nationwide ballot of media members, besting, among others, Detroit's Flip Saunders, San Antonio's Gregg Popovich and Phoenix's Mike D'Antoni , who won the award last season.

    Johnson is the first winner of the award in Mavericks history. He broke the NBA record for fastest coach to 50 wins (50-12) and best record after 82 games (66-16). He was coach of the month in November and January, in addition to winning the award in April last season after taking over for Don Nelson. His career record is 76-24.

    "He got a great opportunity, and he's a great coach who took that opportunity and ran with it," Nelson said from San Francisco, where he was preparing for a speaking engagement, unaware of the pending announcement. "He deserves the coach of the year, and I couldn't be happier for him. Not everybody gets a chance to step into a winning situation like this.

    "It's a terrific honor for him and his whole staff. They helped make it happen."

    The Mavericks finished 60-22 this season, tying the franchise record for victories. They had the third-best record in the NBA. The team also had only one All-Star – Nowitzki – which probably worked in Johnson's favor. Each other coach of the year candidate had at least two All-Stars on his team.

    Throughout his playing career as a gritty point guard, Johnson was known as the "Little General." He appeared in 1,054 games, one of only two players shorter than 6-0 (with Calvin Murphy) to appear in more than 1,000 games.

    As a coach, Johnson prefers to drop the first part of his nickname and simply be known as "The General." He served as an assistant coach for most of the 2004-05 season before Nelson, a three-time coach of the year with other teams, retired last March.

    Nowitzki became a legitimate MVP contender by averaging 26.6 points and nine rebounds this season. He hit a career-best 48 percent from the field, including 40.6 percent from 3-point range.

    However, the competition was stiff for MVP this season with five players producing legitimate credentials. Nowitzki is, however, expected to be first-team All-NBA for the second straight season.

    In addition to Nowitzki, Jerry Stackhouse was a prime contender for the league's sixth-man award, but he, too, came up short.

    Its between Nash and Kobe, I think.

    Kobe will probably get it.

    BTW congrats to Avery, he was deserving.
