emember when those awesome trained circus dogs did the halftime show during the game between the Thunder and the Rockets last week? Well they are back. I love the NBA playoffs, but even as one of the world's biggest basketball fans, I'd probably rather watch these crazy dogs do crazy things for hours upon hours.This is the James Bond of dogs. I want this dog to do secret missions for me. Oh and here's a dog riding a scooter because apparently that is a thing that can happen now. WHERE DO I GET A DOG THAT CAN RIDE ON A SCOOTER?Did I mention that Tony Allen (yes, THAT Tony Allen) wants the dogs to come to Memphis to perform during a halftime show? Everything about these dogs is the best.            &nb sp;         This also gives me an idea for a reality TV show where Tony Allen lives with super talented dogs and tries to teach them to play basketball and stuff. Somebody needs to make this happen.

    Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan remain focused going forward - SBNation.com
    The San Antonio Spurs swept the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, making quick work of the shorthanded Lakers while not letting their guard down. The Lakers, ravaged by injuries, put up little resistance while Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili picked apart L.A.More on the Spurs: Pounding the RockGregg Popovich had little to say postgame, opening up with his statement that "Obviously, it wasn't fair" in regards to playing the Lakers without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, Jodie Meeks, and Metta World Peace throughout the series. Still, he credited his players for remaining focused throughout the series despite the Lakers' numerous injuries."We kept our focus every night," Popovich said "we played hard and followed the game plan." It was clear that the Spurs' plan was to key in on Dwight Howard in the paint as the Lakers lacked perimeter players, and it worked to perfection. Par

    ker, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard spent the series bouncing between swiping at Howard as he went to the post and their man on the perimeter, and the Lakers had no answer.Eventually, the Spurs would frustrate Howard enough that he was ejected after his second technical foul in Game 4.            &nb sp;         San Antonio will move on to the Western Conference semifinals to face either the Denver Nuggets or Golden State Warriors. The Spurs may be shorthanded as well as starting center Tiago Splitter deals with an ankle injury, but Popovich isn't worried about going deep into the bench San Antonio has built. "We've stretched the bench all year long, that's nothing new," he said.Tim Duncan had nothing but praise for Popovich after the game, saying that it is a "honor" playing for him. Duncan also expressed optimism going forward, saying he likes the pace, the rhythm, and the health of the team as they advance through the playoffs.When asked to describe the Spurs mentality facing a Lakers team without Kobe Bryant, Duncan deflected stating that the Spurs focus was only to win four games and not worry about who they are playing. "We came in here and we put our best foot forward. We respected what they had and what they could do." Duncan said as he summarized his thoughts on sweeping the Lakers.            &nb sp;         The Spurs never let the Lakers steal a game or create any doubt on where the series was headed, remaining focused even if their opponent was shorthanded and an easy target. Now, they'll rest up while they await their opponent in the second round.Business as usual for San Antonio.More from SB Nation:• Russell Westbrook's injury turns playoffs upside down• Boston's beaten down and beat up• With Kahn out, Wolves can move forward• LeBron's mad he didn't win DPOY• Derrick Rose drama reaches breaking point

Denver has not had much success doing either, as Golden State has 28 points in the paint while shooting 4-of-10 from deep.Who wins the turnover battle?Both teams have had some issues protecting the ball thus far this series, and that has not changed for Denver. The Nuggets have been especially careless with the ball, coughing it up a whopping 14 times in the first half, leading to 19 Warriors points. Golden State has just six turnovers.Will Carl Landry keep it up?Landry has been solid in the absence of David Lee, averaging 14.0 points for the series heading into Game 4.
