Not much to say here, just wanted to remind everyone that the Game 5 liveblog will be happening here on SLAMonline.com tonight. We’ll get it going just before tipoff, for tonight’s eliminationatory contest. (That’s so not a word, is it?)

I’ve been bunkered down in the hotel room for the last 24 hours, getting my grind ground. Oh, and last night Khalid and I went out to dinner with a ground of NBA and media folk and found ourselves at a long table with none other than Clipper Darrell. I thought I was insane about the Hawks, but I’ve got nothing on Clipper Darrell. I mean, even his car was Clippered out. I love Clipper Darrell. Not the Clippers, though.

Alright, gotta get ready to head to the Stapler. No idea how this is going to play out tonight, but I’m just hoping for a great game. Let’s see what happens.

Catch you guys back here tonight…
