    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/29/10 – Manu Ginobili

    This one was almost over before it started. I’m talking about game 6 between the Spurs and Mavericks, although if I was talking about the whole series that would work too. The Spurs opened up a huge 22-8 lead at the end of the first quarter and ended up with a 97-87 victory. They took […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/28/10 – Deron Williams

    The Utah Jazz lost to the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night, but it sure wasn’t Deron Williams’ fault. The game was in Denver and Carmelo Anthony led the Nuggets to a 116-102 win. Utah still leads the series 3-2. Williams is still one of the most underrated players in the NBA. Williams is sort of […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 4/27/10 — Caron Butler

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/27/10 — Caron Butler

    Caron Butler has not played well in the playoffs so far, watching his team limp to a 3-1 deficit in their series against the San Antonio Spurs.  The Mavericks are the 2-seed and although the Spurs are a tough draw at the 7-seed, Dallas’s performance has been a disappointment.  New acquisition Butler was even benched […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/27/10 – Josh Johnson

    The San Diego Padres did not seem like a good team on paper coming into this season.  Somehow, by some miracle, they managed to pull off an 8-game winning streak.  Unfortunately for them the trip back to earth has been a rather quick and humiliating one.  After losing to the Reds two nights ago, they […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 4/26/10 — LeBron James

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/26/10 — LeBron James

    LeBron James is the best player in the NBA right now and he is not shy about showing it.  Yesterday against the Bulls he nailed shots from everywhere on the court, found open teammates with ease, and defended and rebounded like those things were his specialty.  Unfortunately for the Chicago Bulls, they were on the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/22/10 – Jason Richardson

    I’ll have whatever Jason Richardson is having. Whatever that dude ate before the game against the Trailblazers in Portland is what I’m going to eat for every meal for the rest of my life. Richardson went off and had the game of his life as the Suns just obliterated the Blazers 108-89. The Suns led […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/21/10 – Tim Duncan

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/21/10 – Tim Duncan

    Tim Duncan is The Big Fundamental. And that’s so boring, right? All those All-Star appearances, championship rings, MVP trophies, All-Defensive teams, Rookie of the Year…what a drag. Can’t you do any cool, flying dunks, man? C’mon! Duncan was at it again last night as the Spurs battled the Mavericks in Dallas. Down 1-0 in the […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/20/10 — Josh Smith

    Known affectionately by his fans as “J-Smoove”, the Atlanta Hawks power forward Josh Smith has been feeling ignored this season.  Even though he has been having a ridiculous year, he was overlooked as an All-Star as two of his teammates, Al Horford and Joe Johnson, were selected.  Last night he proved why he should not […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/19/10 – LeBron James

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/19/10 – LeBron James

    The Bulls needed a victory to make this series with Cleveland competitive.  Their strategy? Try to keep LeBron James out of the paint and force him to shoot jump shots.  They forgot one thing though: James is an assassin.  He was more than happy to take jump shots all night long, knocking them down one […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 4/18/10 — Dirk Nowitzki

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/18/10 — Dirk Nowitzki

    Double teams?  No problem.  Triple teams?  Piece of cake.  Or at least that’s what Dirk Nowitzki made it look like last night when he hit nearly every shot he took, no matter what San Antonio tried to do to him.  The Mavericks did not exactly coast to a victory over the rival Spurs in Game […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/15/10 – Robinson Cano

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/15/10 – Robinson Cano

    Ho hum. Who do you think will be in the World Series this year? Maybe the New York Yankees? Odds are they will at least make it there if not win it again, so you have to try to enjoy their team if you can because you’re going to see a lot of them and […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 4/13/10 — Derrick Rose

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/13/10 — Derrick Rose

    It was a strange night for the Bulls.  While off-the-court distractions involving a physical fight between the coach and the vice president were on everyone’s mind, Chicago was able to go out on the court and get a must-win.  The reason they won was because of the combined effort of their backcourt.  Both Kirk Hinrich […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 4/12/10 — Marcus Camby

    The Stat Line of the Night — 4/12/10 — Marcus Camby

    The Portland Trailblazers and the Oklahoma City Thunder both needed to win last night’s matchup.  The loser would be relegated to the 8 seed and a first round showdown with the seemingly unbeatable Lakers, while the winner would be the 6 or 7 seed and at least have a shot against Dallas or Denver.  With […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/11/10 – Phil Mickelson

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/11/10 – Phil Mickelson

    The storyline for Phil Mickelson this weekend at the Masters was the illness his wife and mother are battling.  The storyline for the rest of the world following the Masters was Phil Mickelson.  He started the final round yesterday trailing the leader Lee Westwood by 1 stroke, but he would finish the day with a […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/8/10 – Joakim Noah

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/8/10 – Joakim Noah

    The Chicago Bulls are an entirely different team when Joakim Noah is in the lineup. Earlier this season the Bulls seemed like a lock for the Eastern Conference playoffs, but then Noah went down with Plantar Fasciitis. The Bulls went into the tank with Noah out and now they need every win they can get […]
