Last night, the Sixers had a chance to go up 3-1 on Atlanta and take control of the series. I believe they were up as much as 18 in the first half, and went into halftime with a 13 point lead. If Philly won last night they would have one game remaining to close out… Read More What Has Happened to Ben Simmons?
It’s about damn time. I can’t stand watching a go up for a three then lean into the defender to try and draw contact, and still get the call: When you shoot a jump shot, you are entitled to your vertical space based on where you take off from, and you should not be able… Read More NBA to Re-Examine Rules On “Unnatural Motions” by Jump Shooters to Intentionally Draw Fouls; PLUS, All-Defense Team Announced

He fought valiantly, averaging 34ppg and 10apg on a ridiculous 45% from three, but in the end the Blazers fell to the Nuggets in six. The Blazers just don’t have the defense to win in the playoffs.
