Well, at least national television audiences got to see the Golden State Warriors formally eliminated from the playoffs by the Portland Trail Blazers. Somehow, that contest made the ESPN schedule while Lob City versus OKC went local.
I guess it was assumed that nobody would want to watch Blake Griffin hurl the hatchet down on Serge Ibaka's head. When the demur girl in the front row covers her face, it screams, "Meh, I'd rather be courtside for Portland listlessly ending Golden State's season, sans LaMarcus Aldridge."
Clippers versus Thunder: Fit for League Pass obscurity, right?
