    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/2/11 — Joe Johnson

    Not many people were giving the Atlanta Hawks much of a chance heading into their second-round series against the Chicago Bulls, but last night’s performance had to change the minds of at least a few individuals. The Hawks wasted no time stealing home-court advantage from the Chicago Bulls, thanks in large part to the hot […]

    Paul Pierce Gets A Technical Foul For Setting A Pick (Video)

    Game One of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics could have been a lot more interesting down the stretch had it not been for what may very well be the softest (and worst) call of the playoffs thus far. Everyone knows that the intensity of the games gets […]

    Since the beginning of their 2006 NBA Finals series against the Miami Heat, the Dallas Mavericks have endured a terrible 2-18 record on the road in the playoffs.  Those struggles away from home have resulted in the Mavs being eliminated in the first round in three of the past four post-seasons.  They had a chance […]

    There were plenty of questions surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers heading into Game 5 of their best-of-seven series against the New Orleans Hornets last night at the Staples Center.  You could probably say that Kobe Bryant answered all of those questions with one thunderous slam over the head of Hornets’ center Emeka Okafor. One of […]

    Picture Of The Day: Tony Allen Has A Grizzly Hairdo

    Memphis guard Tony Allen went into his local barbershop and asked for “the Grizzly cut.”  This is what he got. Allen isn’t the only one who can’t get the Grizzlies out of his hair.  The Spurs seem to be having the same problem during their opening round best-of-seven series, as they currently find themselves trailing […]

    TNT Cameras Catch Relationship Dispute At Pepsi Center (Video)

    You would think that everyone in the Pepsi Center last night would be in a good mood with only 3.5 seconds remaining and the Denver Nuggets on the verge of winning their first game of the 2011 NBA playoffs.  However, the camera crew at TNT did spot one unhappy couple exchanging a few words in […]

    Not many people gave the New Orleans Hornets a chance against the Los Angeles Lakers in their opening round series of the 2011 NBA playoffs.  Following last night’s game, a few minds may have been changed, thanks to an incredible performance from Hornets guard Chris Paul. Paul was doing it all in Game 4, recording […]

    9 Best NBA Arenas to Watch a Playoff Game

    This is/was a more difficult to assemble than those for baseball, football or even hockey. Though crowd plays a big role in the performance of a home team, NBA action is largely bird’s-eye. So on TV, the casual observer, or even the astute one, won’t really distinguish one from the other. Even fan noise is […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/21/11 — Dwyane Wade

    Any coach in the NBA will tell you that despite being down 2-0 in a playoff series, you are never in trouble until you lose a game at home.  The Philadelphia 76ers are now officially in trouble, thanks to an incredible Game 3 performance by Dwyane Wade. The Heat guard was doing it all last […]

  • Picture Of The Day: Wrong Ball Bro!

    Picture Of The Day: Wrong Ball Bro!

    Kevin Garnett is no stranger to getting down and dirty on the hard-court, although I believe what the New York Knicks’ Jared Jeffries had in mind here was a little to down and dirty for the Celtics forward. With time running down in Game 2 between the Celtics and the Knicks, Jeffries hit the floor […]

    There Is A Towel Thief Among You Mavs Fans (Video)

    While watching the conclusion of Game 2 last night between the Dallas Mavericks and the Portland Trail Blazers, I couldn’t help but notice the towel around Tyson Chandler’s neck being ripped away from him as he made his way towards the locker room. I’m not sure who I am more impressed with here.  The kid, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 4/17/11 — Kevin Durant

    The San Antonio Spurs and the Los Angeles Lakers had already watched home-court advantage slip away with Game One losses earlier in the day.  The Oklahoma City Thunder did not want to become the third Western Conference team to lose their opening game of the first round on their home court.  Kevin Durant would make […]

    Sacramento Kings Broadcasters Get Choked Up Following Final Game (Video)

    With the Maloofs and the NBA unable to put together enough money or support to build a new arena in Sacramento, the future of the Kings franchise will enter the off-season with plenty of uncertainty.  As a result, Kings broadcasters Grant Napear and Jerry Reynolds spoke about the likelihood that last night’s home game against […]

    Charlie Villanueva Had A Freak-Out Moment Last Night (Video)

    A game between the Detroit Pistons and the Cleveland Cavaliers this late in the season may be the most irrelevant game on the NBA schedule, but things actually got quite interesting during the fourth quarter of their meeting last night. With less than six minutes remaining and the Cavs up by 11, Pistons forward Charlie […]
