Trends, tidbits, and talking points: HEAT vs. Bobcats

A look at some noteworthy numbers in the HEAT-Bobcats series. DISCLAIMER: Super small sample size! The Charlotte Bobcats are making 8.5 threes per game on 40.5% shooting during the series. In the regular season, they ranked 25th in the league in makes and 23rd in the league in percentage. Miami has matched that with 10 makes from downtown per game at 43.5% shooting. Miami's starting lineup has been, frankly,  an abomination. They sport an offensive rating of 68.7 and a defensive rating of 113.4 (Net -44.7). But when Miami goes LeBron and 4 subs (Norris Cole, Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis,...

GIF Breakdown: Mavericks vs. Spurs Game 2

We'll have a very brief GIF Breakdown of this contest because it was a game that didn't provide us fans with many highlight worthy plays. The first possession for the Spurs resulted in a three for Danny Green, which was something that we didn't see in Game One. Tony Parker drove into the paint and found an open Green in the right corner and the former Tar Heel connected for three. For a brief moment I thought the Spurs we know and love were back. I love watching Timmy work in the post. Here he has Shawn Marion matched up against him and he goes into a spin move only to find that he is...

Memphis Grizzlies Mike Conley wins NBA's Joe Dumars Award for sportsmanship

And there was no one surprised. Mike Conley Winner of the 2013-14 Joe Dumars Award for sportsmanship At least no Grizzlies' fans were surprised. We've long known that Mike is one of the nicest, most down-to-earth fellas around the NBA. I don't think I've ever heard a single ill word spoken about Conley other than the fact that he beats everyone in every competitive challenge he's presented. You never see Mike talking ish on the court, and I can count on one hand the number of times he's displayed animated emotion on the basketball court. Number 11 just takes care of business and gives a...

Anyone still alive? I hope so! Grizzlies 98 - Thunder 95 First Quarter Marc Gasol started off the quarter great, bringing a level of play that was above his good-but-not-awesome first two games. That lead to him getting the first points, but his play also lead to two quick fouls. He was replaced by Kosta Koufos, who helped lead a thrilling defensive ping pong match in mid court that showed much about the two teams defensively as much as it did the referees that let them play it out. The Grizzlies defense kept OKC to 2 for 11 at one point, with K2 putting a monster block on Caron...

Smoother sailing in Thibodeau’s system, with Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah on board

Don’t expect Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau to go to New York. Not this summer or any time soon. He won’t be sniffing around his old stomping grounds in Minneapolis this offseason, and he’s not Hollywood enough for Los Angeles. He’s a Bull — and not just because he has a contract for three more seasons or because this was the team that gave him his first chance to be a head coach. It’s because Thibodeau also picked the Bulls. ‘‘When I was an assistant, I...
