Hoopshysteria: Vogel Not to Blame

Hoopshysteria: Vogel Not to Blame
By Wild on Sports Analyst Talyon Perry

Eastern Conference Breakdown
Frank Vogel might be considered the most hated man in 49 of the 50 states, but he shouldn't be blamed for the loss. Did Roy Hibbert stop Carmelo's late game dunk? Yes. Would he have stopped Lebron? No. The reason he wouldn't be able to stop Lebron is because Lebron would flop (I mean taken the foul) like he did throughout the game. Instead it was a defensive breakdown. Lebron made one quick move, beating his man (no double team???). On a positive note, Paul George showed his clutch side by hitting a game tying 3 from five feet behind the line. Unfortunately he was out done by Lebron's game winning layup in the 4th. Heat lead 1-0

Western Conference Breakdown
The West has been much less entertaining with the Spurs leading the Grizzlies 2-0. The real test will come in the next couple games as the series heads to Memphis. The Spurs look like they will sweep the grizzlies unless the home court advantage can turn it around. The match-up to watch will be the grizzlies against Tim Duncan. Duncan has defied aging in this series thus far. Marc Gasol, defensive player of the year, will most likely guard Duncan which will slow him down. Gasol needs to be the best defensive player on the court, for either team, if Memphis wants to send the series back to Texas for game 5.
