I started writing this post when Marcus Smart hit a dagger three ball to make it 117-103 with under 5 minutes to play in the 4th. Boston is going to win this game by at least 10, probably 15+, after being down 10-15 points for most of the third quarter. I am highly impressed with… Read More Celtics Take Game 1 of 2022 NBA Finals, Steal Home Court Advantage
Honestly, the Warriors-Mavs series hasn’t been much better, but we just had yet another blowout on the Eastern side of the bracket. Furthermore, it was yet another game that was basically decided in the first quarter. Boston was up 29-11 after the first quarter, and wound up winning 102-82, so basically they had a 20… Read More This Miami-Boston Eastern Conference Finals Series Sucks
The ferocious Andrew Wiggins dunk right in Luka’s face was the moment the series ended. It was an 8 point game with about 6:40 to play, but that dunk ended the series. Goodnight. And now the Warriors are on the verge of their 6th Finals trip since 2015. The NBA Finals since 2015: 2015: Warriors… Read More Warriors on Verge of 6th Finals Appearance in Last 8 Years
You know if you read this site that I always say LeBron and Kyrie were the most skilled duo in NBA history. If not for injuries in 2015, and KD joining the Warriors to form the most unbeatable juggernaut in NBA history in 2016, LeBron and Kyrie would’ve won multiple rings. I’ve also always said… Read More Could a LeBron-Kyrie Reunion Actually be in the Works?
In last night’s Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics, Jimmy Butler genuinely had an all-time great playoff performance: 12-19 shooting, 41 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals, 3 blocks, only 2 turnovers, a +25, and an incredible 17-18 from the free throw line. And remember, the Celtics have an all-time… Read More Is Playoff Jimmy a Real Thing?
Yikes: Can’t imagine that’ll go over well in the locker room. Man, the 76ers are a complete mess. And honestly, in a vacuum, it’s hard to really rip them because with Embiid’s fractured orbital bone, his concussion, and the ligament tear in his hand, he’s clearly not been 100% in this series. He missed the… Read More Joel Embiid Basically Calls James Harden Washed
The guy goes for 40 & 10 more effortlessly than anyone I’ve ever seen. Sure, he’s had his troubles with this Boston defense, but Giannis is a player that gets stronger and more dangerous as the series goes on. He wears you down. Coming into last night’s game, he was averaging 33ppg in the series,… Read More Giannis is Undeniably the Best Player Alive
News just broke yesterday that Nikola Jokic has been voted the 2022 NBA MVP, securing back-to-back MVP honors. He will be officially honored in a ceremony on TNT momentarily. Jokic joins an elite club of players to win consecutive MVPs, although it has happened quite a bit in recent years. The list of players: Jokic… Read More Nikola Jokic Has Won his Second Straight MVP
This has to be an all-time great NBA playoff moment. Giannis throws down a monster dunk, then starts jawing at Al Horford. Horford doesn’t say anything, he just nods his head as if to say, “Okay. Keep talking your shit. We’ll see about it. I got something for ya.” And then he delivered. Boston was… Read More THE LEGEND OF AL HORFORD
Two of the four conference semifinal series have tipped off. Let’s overreact! I guess I jumped the gun in saying the Bucks are dead without Middleton–to say the least. The Bucks are for real. Obviously Middleton is huge for them, and I don’t think they can win the whole thing without him, but losing Middleton… Read More NBA Playoffs: Round 2, Game 1s Reaction
