It can be my girlfriend in front of me and I'd want to kick her ass and nothing is going to change that because I want to keep my belt at home with me".
All of these players, and many others, could have a hand in their respective series, and they will need to in order for their respective teams to have a chance to continue on to the NBA Finals.

Phil Mickelson , playing alongside Woods and Rickie Fowler , ended his first round at The Players Championship in shocking style.
