    NBA Playoffs – Indiana Pacers Still Unsure About Playing Paul George

    We don’t usually see a huge focus on concussions in the NBA, but Paul George getting hit on the head by Dwyane Wade’s knee seems to be the main thing the Indiana Pacers are worried about right now, hoping their star player is able to pass all the tests heading into game 3 of the series with the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Miami Heat Benefit From LeBron James Being a Different Kind of Superstar

    The Miami Heat aren’t the best team in the NBA for the last couple of years, winning 46 of their last 49 games just because LeBron James is a superstar. It’s because he’s the kind of superstar no one has even seen before.

    NBA Playoffs – Heat vs Pacers Finals Predictions

    If there’s one team the Miami Heat are destined to have trouble with, the last couple of seasons have showed us it should be the Indiana Pacers. It’s a good thing that they meet again in the Eastern Conference Finals, showing us the degree of difficulty scale in the NBA Playoffs is actually something that works.

  • LeBron James Doesn’t Show Up Alone for Game 7

    LeBron James didn’t rest for one second, and that’s what it’s going to take for him to win his first NBA title and lead the Miami Heat to their second. It’s what it took for him to lead his team to a 101-88 win over the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

  • LeBron James, Clutch Enough For You?

    If clutch, for you, is shooting at the last second with five players on you while making the shot, then LeBron James isn’t the player for you. If showing up for an potential elimination game, with the back to the wall, on the road, and scoring 45 points while taking over from the first second is your cup of tea, then you were pleased with what you saw.

  • LeBron James Conjures A Special Game to Force Game 7

    Dismantling the Miami Heat? Hold on. LeBron James put on his serious-villain face and had one of his finest playoff performances, dominating almost singlehandely the Boston Celtics in Boston, scoring 45 points, en route to a 98-79 win in Game 6.

  • Celtics Over Heat – Kevin Garnett, Superstar

    He wasn’t supposed to be this good this year, but Kevin Garnett, at 36, is still playing like the best big men in the NBA. He led the Boston Celtics with 26 points and 13 rebounds as they turned the series upside down, won 94-90 in Miami and now have a 3-2 lead over the Heat, with a potential series clincher at home on Thursday.

  • Rajon Rondo Wins & Whines; Dwyane Wade Not “Clutch” Enough

    Overtime for the second time, but the Boston Celtics, just barely, come out on top. No legendary night from Rajon Rondo, just a very good one – same goes for Kevin Garnett. On the other end, for the Miami Heat, Dwyane Wade missed the potentially game winning shot, while LeBron James had to sit out the ending after fouling out.

  • Big Plays From LeBron James & Dwyane Wade Overcome Career Night from Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo didn’t rest for a second, playing 53 minutes and scoring a career high of 44 points. It was only enough to get the Celtics into overtime against the Miami Heat, losing 111-115 to go down 0-2 as they head back to Boston.

  • Rajon Rondo, the Boston Celtics’ Only Chance

    When Rajon Rondo finally managed to pull off his usual pump-fake and spin to get himself an open look in the Heat’s pain, he got rejected by LeBron James and landed straight on his face. Typical for the way the Celtics performed during their bad stretches in Game 1, and an ominous sign for the rest of the series.
