Post Up: Unstoppable

LeBron closes out the first half of the season with another incredible performance.

by Peter Walsh / @goinginsquad

All-Star Weekend is officially upon us.

Heat 110 (36-14), Thunder 100 (39-14)

Okay, LeBron, this is getting out of hand. Last night, LeBron became the first NBA player to score at least 30 points in seven straight games heading into the All-Star Break since Wilt Chamberlain in ’62-’63. He finished with 39 points, 12 boards and 7 assists as the Heat led wire-to-wire in a dominating win over Oklahoma City. The Thunder tried to mount a comeback behind Kevin Durant’s 22 fourth quarter points, but every time they would get within striking distance, LeBron would find a wide open teammate for a three to bury any hopes of a comeback. Chris Bosh scored 20 points and grabbed 12 boards and Dwyane Wade dropped 13 and 8 assists. Durant finished with 40 points and 8 boards and Russ Westbrook finished with 26 points and 10 assists.

Clippers 125 (39-17), Lakers 101 (25-29)

The guard has officially changed in LA as the Clippers absolutely waxed the Lakers for the third win over their LA counterpart this season. LAC led by as many as 28 points and the game wasn’t even close throughout the second half. Chris Paul finished with 24 points and 13 assists, Chauncey Billups hit five 3′s and scored 21 points and Blake Griffin scored 22 points and grabbed 10 boards in the rout. Kobe had 20 points and 11 assists in the loss.

    Man LeBron was shooting 61% from the floor, then he took a completely unnecessary 3, missed it, and dropped to 58%. Had he taken and made 1 more shot, he would have been at 60% again.

  • Slick Ric

    Lebron won MVP last night without a doubt. SMH at Durant…..wonder will he workout with lebron this off season…

  • Keston Williams

    People starting to come up with Theories as to why LeBron is shooting so well this season….
    and they are trying to Pin-point the Off Season Workouts with Durant as the Reason.
    i don’t believe this because they worked out last season and LeBron’s jumpers didn’t improve by that much.
    People seem to forget that LeBron’s newest teammate is one of the Greatest Shooters of All Time.
    as reports Confirmed…LeBron and Ray Allen regularly goes shooting contests during practices and is known to Win quite a few.
    Give LeBron credit where it’s due…but i seriously believe Ray Allen’s arrival in Miami has something to do with LeBron’s deadly accuracy more than it has to do with KD.

    LeBron absolutely toys with everyone,this game clearly shows the gap between okc and miami,not even biased reffering could have help the thunder.I love Durant but he is NOT on the same level as Bron,no matter what adanced statistics says,the way he&westrbrook just jumped into traffic like a headless chickens beggin for the calls in the 1 half was just downright disgusting for me personally.I think its safe to say that championship tittle is miami’s to lose right now,regardless of regular season records.I didnt watch the second game&after seeing box score i thank god.There is just no hope for my lakers right now,pretty sad way to end great career of Kobe,

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    Was thinking the exact same thing when he launched that shot. The standards we hold Lebron to are unparalleled lol.

  • spit hot fiyah

    maybe that’s the difference between him and durant

  • spit hot fiyah

    u are not giving the birdman enough credit, he is clearly the diffenece maker, the opponents get blinded by the human Rainbow running around on the court

  • KevinJohnsonFan

    Durant started off slow but he still finished with 40. Best scorer in the league. Westbrook takes some terrible shots but he took one last night that almost made me turn my TV off. He took the inbounds pass, trotted down the floor and took a 3 without even thinking to pass to anyone. The Thunder will really miss Harden in the postseason. If Kevin Martin doesn’t score, you don’t know he’s on the floor. You always know when James is on the floor whether he’s scoring or not. They may not get past the 2nd round especially if Westbrook is missing shots.

    a game I really would like to watch now is MIA-SAS, i wanna see what Pop will throw at Lebron (mostly Kawhi i guess, im wondering if he can slow him down a bit), on the other hand, if Miami can slow down TP and the Spurs offense execution.

  • Max

    Damn, KD was really struggeling in the 1st half and still finished with 40.

  • Happy

    For that very reason, I’m glad he did it. It would have been super obvious that he was being conscious of his percentage if he didn’t take that shot.

  • Happy

    Durant’s fourth quarter was epic. Gotta love the guy who keeps fighting no matter how big his team’s deficit is.

    No matter how good he is, I can’t help but be annoyed watching point guards bring the ball up and shoot without making a single pass. I love Russ’s game, but he’s seems to go right back to playing out of control when he gets frustrated. Tossing up shots with three defenders around him instead of kicking it out also bothers the sh!t outta me.

  • RayJr

    Chauncey Billups! Wow what a strong comeback thus far. He could’ve dropped 40 if he played the whole game. Just watching the game last night you have to just throw your hands up in the air when a team is shooting lights out from 3 like that. The Clippers couldve beaten anybody last night with all those 3s.

  • LakeShow

    It’s All Star break homie………

  • LakeShow

    Clippers reminded me of the Mav’s during their playoff run last night. Dagger, after dagger, after dagger, after mother f*cking dagger…… lol.

    Yes LeBron’s jumper has improved, but more than that its his shot selection. He is making his living in the paint and the jumpers he mostly takes are rhythm jumpers. I’ll add a caveat and say last night was the exception to the rule, he made difficult jumpers all night.

  • spit hot fiyah

    i can tell by your name

  • Happy

    Nah bruh. Happy as in Gilmore :)

    This is where Harden is truly missed. Neither KD, WestBrook or K-Mart are able to create off the dribble for others. They’re all volume scorers and as a team they don’t seem to run an effective offense. They don’t stand much change against the defending champs and I hope they don’t make it back to the finals. San Antonio might not have the athleticism to stop them but the Clippers do and then some. Man!!!! I’m not gonna get $hit done during the post season.
