Bell’s Comeback Lifts Suns

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Somehow this reminds me of the famous Willis Reed incident that sparked the Knicks a title in the 70’s. Reed was injured and he didn’t score much but his few made baskets sparked a whole team to victory. Ok, that was one of the greatest moments in basketball history and it’s unfair to compare what […]

Heat Win Game 4

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

This situation looks a bit familar. Oh yeah, it looks just like when the Spurs were down 3-1 against the Mavericks in the semifinals. Only the Spurs were able to win the next two games to push a game 7 before losing. So the Heat are up 3-1 against the Pistons and I’ll bring up […]

Mavs Slow Suns, Win Game 3

Monday, May 29th, 2006

So I was right. The Mavericks won game 3 with a score of 95-88 and are now just two victories away from making their first ever finals appearance in franchise history with the series at 2-1 in the Mav’s favor. Dirk scored 28 points and grabbed 17 rebounds while Josh Howard scored 22 points and […]

Shaq, Wade Heat Up Game 3

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

For this game, Shaq and Dwayne Wade just couldn’t be stopped. The Pistons tried and failed miserably. Wade had 35 points while Shaq had 27 in this 98-83 game 3 victory. The Heat led all throughout the game and the closest they ever got to getting a lead was when Chauncey Billups made two back […]

Mavs Even Series In Game 2

Saturday, May 27th, 2006

The Mavs won game 2 105-98, evening out the series 1-1. They won this game but you have to give the Suns a lot of credit. The Suns led at the end of the first half and even some part of the third quarter. That’s pretty good considering they played short-handed with Leandro Barbosa […]

Penny To Join Grizzlies?

Friday, May 26th, 2006

So Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway wants to join the Grizzlies next season. It’s a reasonable choice for a team since Memphis is his home and the Grizzlies is a great organization, despite losing in the playoffs. Penny was most known for the Shaq and Penny tandem of Orlando that brought the Magic to the finals in […]

Think You’re The Draft Genius?

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

With all the excitement about how the draft lottery went and how the Toronto Raptors got the number one overall pick, it’s time to think about how the teams would pick come draft day. Think you’re the draft genius? Why not try doing the picking yourself and see how it matches the mock drafts of […]

Late Game Struggles Cause Mavs To Fall Short, Suns Win Game 1

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

It was a very close fight but in the end, the Suns managed to win game one 121-118. Steve Nash scored 27 points on 11 for 18 scoring from the field and dished 16 assists. Most Improved Player awardee Boris Diaw had a career high 34 points. Shawn Marion added 24 points and 13 […]

No To Big Bulky Big Men?

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

So I came across this article written by Mark Wise called “It Took Two Big Men To Go Small” which was featured in the NBA website. It had interesting insights about how Don Nelson and Mike D’Antoni started a change about how the game was played - that the game no longer relies on […]

Lottery Love For Raptors

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006

The spirits of the ping pong balls have spoken and they said “Bryan Colangelo, your Raptors will get the number one pick!” Well, not really but the point is that the Raptors won the Draft Lottery and will pick first in this year’s draft. It’s amazing since the Raptors only had the fifth best chance […]
