The Rockets lost a game they called a must-win, making Friday’s Game 3 the one they knew they really, really must win. “Game 3 is our season,” Rockets guard James Harden said. “This is all or go home. It’s going to be a hostile environment. “We have to focus on Rockets against the world, what […]
There are times when you see two elite players go at it and you think, “damn, there’s no way to stop those guys, is there?” The first half of this game was a clash of the titans if there ever was one.

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,...

Charlotte's 15 turnovers take toll as Bobcats drop first two games in Miami against the two-time defending champion Heat. —Not long after Charlotte came up short in its effort to try and even its opening-round playoff series with the Miami Heat on Wednesday, Al Jefferson hobbled through the Bobcats locker room, sat down, and grimaced.
Dwight Howard was spectacular early in Game 2 but the Rockets still lost and wasted his strong effort.
Ok, just place yourself in Rajon Rondo’s shoes for a sec. Just imagine how he might be feeling at the moment. After spending seven seasons in a legendary franchise like the Boston Celtics, playing alongside future Hall of Famers like Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce and also after winning one championship ring, he now has to live through the tough rebuilding process of his team. Disappointing isn’t it? For sure. So what can he or the team do?Over the course of the past couple of years we’ve heard tons of rumors about a potential Rajon Rondo trade. Some of them might had some...
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...
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...
