Offensive Machines Since 1990, only FIVE teams have had 3 players averaging 20+ points: 90-91 Golden State Warriors (Run TMC), 2007-08 Warriors, (Monta, B-Diddy, Captain Jack), 2013-14 Sacramento Kings (Boogie, IT, Rudy Gay) 2016-17 Warriors, and 2017-18 Warriors (Steph, Klay, KD). 2. Kawhi open to leaving San Antonio to take less money?

3 Things Cavs Need To Do To Win Game 3

1.) Play With Fire And Desperation The NBA Finals is more than just X's and O's. After all, Cleveland and Golden State have faced each other for the fourth consecutive time in the Finals already. What was lacking in the Cavs so far this series is the aggressive play that almost had them steal Game 1. Tristan Thompson making his presence felt, Larry Nance, Jr. having a hand on passing lanes, etc.  (Nance had three deflections, four loose balls recovered, four contested shots and seven box Read More

5 Unbelievable Numbers/Facts In Game 1 Of The NBA Finals

1. KD (and Draymond) couldn't guard LeBron. Basically, nobody could touch LeBron in Game 1 as he went off for a playoff career-high 51 points. But KD, Bron's primary defender, allowed him to score 30 points on 10-for-15 shooting. To be fair to KD, Draymond Green didn't do a better job, either. Green was LeBron's primary defender in eight possessions, and James scored eight points on 4-for-6 shooting. Apparently, the Dubs need Iggy real quick or LeBron will probably average 45 in this series. 2. Read More

3 Takeaways In The NBA Finals Game 1

The Golden State Warriors took over in the extra period to come out on top, 124-114, over the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals Game 1. A combined 79 points by Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant plus the all-around brilliance of Draymond Green got the job done. LeBron James registered a new Finals-high with 51 points. 1. The Cavs Totally Deserved To Win The Game I am not even a Cavs fan but I thought Cleveland worked hard enough to steal Game 1 on the road.  They completely owned Read More

5 Interesting Numbers In The Celtics-Cavs ECF Game 5

1. Jayson Tatum! Tatum becomes the first rookie since Jack Sikma (in 1978) to score 300+ points in a postseason. He now has nine 20+ point games in the playoffs, trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on the all-time rookie list. The crazy thing is if the Celtics go on to the NBA Finals, he will likely be the runaway leader in that category even before that series ends. If this kid ain't the real deal, I don't know who is! 2. More Celtics... The Boston Celtics is the first team with 10 consecutive Read More

5 Awesome Stats In The Eastern Conference Finals Game 1

1. The Eastern Conference Finals Game 1 marks the first time in the playoffs that LeBron James did not lead the Cavaliers in BOTH points and assists. Kevin Love led the team with 17 points. 2. Home Sweet Home The Celtics have won eight straight playoff games at the TD Garden after the 108-83 victory in the Eastern Conference Finals Game 1. 3. One streak continues, while another ends. Jayson Tatum's streak of 20+ points games ends at 7 tonight. The blowout does not help but I'm Read More

Start Em, Sit Em – NBA DFS Dec 22, 2017

Start ‘Em: Anthony Davis, PF, NO ($11,300) The Brow has been money lately, scoring 50 FP or more in each of his last three games. When you average 48.0 FPPG, it’s hard to beat your average in three straight games, but Davis dropped 37 points, 9 rebounds an assist and a steal on Tuesday against Washington. The game before that he had 5 blocks. He’s only the 5th most expensive player tonight, and always has a legit shot be the top fantasy scorer. Lonzo Ball PG, LAL ($7,400) I still think Read More

2018 All-Star Team Projections

NBA All-Star Voting 2018 presented by Verizon will tip off with an early voting period exclusively on the NBA App and NBA.com beginning Thursday, Dec. 21 at 1 p.m. ET. In honor of the impending vote, lets take a look at who should make it this year. Keep in mind that this year, there will be no East V West, it has moved to a draft format. It’s clear that the All-Star game is dying since none of the players care, so the draft will at least add some life into it. Useless or not, I’ve always liked Read More
