NBA Finals – Spurs vs Heat Game 2 Predictions

Posted on 9 Jun, 2013, by in Basketball

No team that has lost its first two games at home in the NBA finals went on to win the NBA title. That’s why the Miami Heat are in a must-win situation heading into game 2, while the San Antonio Spurs are feeling confident without trying to show it too much, unlike other teams that lost to the Heat along the way.

NBA Playoffs – Grizzlies vs Spurs Game 2 Predictions

Posted on 21 May, 2013, by in Basketball

There’s no way the San Antonio Spurs can hold Zach Randolph to only two points once again. It’s also hard to imagine the Memphis Grizzlies allowing Tony Parker to run wild and go down after the first quarter behind by 17 points, and losing by 22 points. Things don’t work that way in the playoffs, and two days is a whole lot of time between the opener and game 2. More

Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson Break Curses For Golden State Warriors

Posted on 8 May, 2013, by in Basketball

It’s been 22 years since the Golden State Warriors won a second round playoff game on the road. It’s been 16 years since they last won in San Antonio against the Spurs. But these 2013 Warriors are different. Young, but they don’t play as such, especially not Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry, who were simply too much to handle for the favorites to win the Western Conference. More

Miami Heat Deal Chicago Bulls Their Worst Playoff Loss in History

Posted on 8 May, 2013, by in Basketball

It was clear the Miami Heat would be fired up in Game 2, but no one knew that the Chicago Bulls would stop playing near the end of the second quarter, losing in an embarrassing fashion (115-78), their worst defeat in postseason history, heading back to Chicago in a 1-1 tied series, as LeBron James didn’t even need to score in the second half.

Manu Ginobili Game Winner

NBA Playoffs – Warriors vs Spurs Game 2 Predictions

Posted on 8 May, 2013, by in Basketball

The first game in the Western conference semifinals series between the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs provided us with two overtimes, an amazing performance from Stephen Curry and an even better finish from Manu Ginobili. Chances are we’re in for a letdown in terms of quality in game 2, but not by much. More

NBA Playoffs – Bulls vs Heat Game 2 Predictions

Posted on 8 May, 2013, by in Basketball

While there is a chance that the Chicago Bulls might have found the recipe to do what seemed impossible until a few days ago – beat the current Miami Heat team in a seven game series, there’s also the option of them awaking a slumbering dragon that didn’t win so many games during the second half of the season on sheer luck alone, and has responded quite well to being behind in a series over the last couple of seasons.

NBA Playoffs – Grizzlies vs Thunder Game 2 Predictions

Posted on 7 May, 2013, by in Basketball

The Oklahoma City Thunder don’t have their starting point guard or any kind of offensive system, but they do have Kevin Durant playing his best basketball. The Memphis Grizzlies are quite methodical on both ends of the floor, but lack that superstar who can take the game on his shoulders in the final minutes. Will it cost them a second consecutive time?

NBA Playoffs – Pacers vs Knicks Game 2 Predictions

Posted on 7 May, 2013, by in Basketball

The New York Knicks are in trouble, and not just because of their game 1 loss at home curse. They’re in trouble because the Indiana Pacers have found out how to make Carmelo Anthony look pretty bad for an entire game, through their own brand of stifling defense and going for the teeth offense, and they don’t have a backup plan to counter it.

Celtics vs Knicks – Game 2 Predictions

Posted on 23 Apr, 2013, by in Basketball

If the Boston Celtics are going to make this series turn into a different direction than the one it’s heading in now, they’re going to need their entire team, from top to bottom, starters and bench, to show up for Game 2, with the New York Knicks knowing they played far from their best and still got away with a not too difficult win.

Bulls vs Nets – Joakim Noah and Ugly Basketball Make the Difference

Posted on 23 Apr, 2013, by in Basketball

The only way the Chicago Bulls are going to win against anyone in the postseason is by playing their kind of basketball – which means clawing, scratching, hustling, fighting and doing everything that’s not considered a measurable attribute in the sport. With Joakim Noah getting more minutes this time, their brand of basketball was managed to steal home court in game 2. More
