How the Lakers got here: Defeated the President and First Lady (with 64% of the vote) and the Suns' Nash and Amar'e (73%).
Last game's play-by-play, courtesy of "Bell Curve": "Amar'e pouts. Nash sulks. Kobe seethes. Gasol is blissfully unaware of it all. Lakers win 11-8."
How the Blazers got here: Defeated the Thunder's Durant and Green (with 66% of the vote) and the Hornets' Paul and West (54%).
Game play-by-play, courtesy of "theSchnoz": "DWest goes up for a 18 foot jumper and is blocked. The very next play, he clotheslines Aldridge. Flagrant-2 and he's gone. CP3 immediately pulls a groin trying to compensate for not having any help and goes down in a heap. Blazers win 3-3 as NO forfeits due to disqualification."
Hypothetical rules: Half-court, offense calls the fouls, "winners out" to eleven (by ones and twos, natch), and you've got to win by two. Also, no jeans allowed.
And if you're in a creative mood, leave us a short description of how you see this game unfolding. Who jumps out to the early lead? Who nails the game winner? Break it down, Marv.
Voting will remain open until late Saturday night, MST.
POLLS CLOSED / WINNER: Roy and Aldridge with 54% of the vote.
