Cavaliers' Richard Jefferson believes LeBron James was sick during Game 3

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran Richard Jefferson said on Fox Sports Ohio following Game 4 that he thinks LeBron James’ terrible performance in Game 3 — the four-time MVP had 11 points, six turnovers in the Cavs’ 111-108 loss to the Celtics — was likely due to sickness.Jefferson noted that Cleveland point guard Deron Williams missed the squad’s latest shootaround, which led to a conclusion that a “bug” going around the team led to James’ lackluster performance."I know he won’t talk about it, so I’ll give my big guy a shout,” Jefferson said. “Deron Williams missed...

Derrick Rose to the Wolves? No Thanks

Rose doesn’t solve any of the issues that hampered the Wolves, but the rumors will persist. Well, it’s going to be a long summer of Ricky Rubio rumors (as always) and alleged interest in unrestricted free agent point guard, Derrick Rose. The Wolves, according to Ian Begley—who covers the Knicks for ESPN—view Tom Thibodeau’s former star in Chicago as a target this summer. The Timberwolves view PG Derrick Rose as a free agent target this summer, league sources tell ESPN. More here: https://t.co/k7pa1gsoHm— Ian Begley (@IanBegley) May 24, 2017 In regards to the...

NBA Rumors: Chris Paul To Spurs Rumors Heating Up? Knicks Interested In Ricky Rubio Again?

Is Chris Paul done playing for the Los Angeles Clippers? Paul, who has been with the Clippers for the past six seasons, may be seriously weighing his options of heading to a new team for the 2017-18 season, and one of the front runners that Paul is rumored to be heading to is one of the Clippers’ arch rivals. According to an ESPN report, the San Antonio Spurs are more than a little interested in Paul and by the sounds of it, they would love to see him in a Spurs uniform. During an interview with ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz yesterday, colleague Zach Lowe said he thinks there is legitimacy...

Buckley: Celtics history won’t allow for ‘success’ term to mix with a playoff exit

If Celtics history means anything — and it does, right? — then there’s no room in the trophy case for silver linings, life lessons and “moral victories.”There is no such thing as glasses half-filled. You either win or you lose. No in between, no participation ribbons, no attaboys.In that spirit, I’m confident the late, great Red Auerbach would be spinning in his grave over the concept that this Celtics season was already stamped a success when A) the Green made it to the Eastern Conference finals, and B) the ping-pong balls finally bounced their way in the NBA draft lottery.Red...

Rich Hill digs hole Dodgers can’t escape in 6-1 loss to Cardinals

LOS ANGELES  – Like Bigfoot, Rich Hill’s potential to be a dominant starter for the Dodgers has been occasionally glimpsed. But it has yet to be captured. The recurring blisters on the middle finger of his pitching hand are largely to blame for that elusiveness. But that much-publicized digit did not appear any more culpable […]

They’re not better.But they are different, and that counts for something as they try to stave off elimination from the Eastern Conference finals in Game 5 tonight.The Celts were hoping to throw some interesting wrinkles at the unquestionably superior Cavaliers in this series; just nothing as drastic as getting your best player sidelined with a hip injury that may require surgery.The Cavs came into the set figuring out ways to keep Thomas to a dull roar.
