Dwight Howard looked lost, James Harden was still perfecting the Euro 2-step, as the Houston Rockets got straight up MAULED by the LA Clippers 128-95 for Game 4 of the Western (Conference) Semifinals tonight! The Clips now have a commanding (3-1) series lead over the Rockets!
Some say send me an angel… the Bulls got the knock when DERRICK ROSE hit the BIG SHOT – a daggering three!!! It brought the crowd to their feat, the Chicago Bulls to a 99-96 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, and a surprising (2-1) Eastern Semifinals series lead! Rose finished with 30 points, and is fading Lebron’s hopes for another Championship! THE NBA PLAYOFFS ARE IN FULL EFFECT!!!
Steph Curry hit the three… and SPLASHES into history for the NBA RECORD for three’s (in a single season)! He got the record (273th and 274th) three, as his team (Golden State Warriors) battled back to a 57-54 halftime lead (from 10 back) versus the Portland Trailblazers! Curry already has 22 points at the half, so he might even muscle up a 50 point game!
An absolute disgrace to his Chechen roots… Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the Boston Marathon bomber who desecrated people’s live all over America on April 15, 2013 sending off a bomb during the race, was found guilty on all 30 charges in court on Wednesday (yesterday) including: using weapons of mass destruction, guilty of bombing a place of public use, guilty of conspiracy and aiding and abetting. He will be sentenced (to either life in jail or the death penalty) on April 15, 2015, and the Boston Marathon will once again begin on April 20, 2015.
I don’t know if the floor was slippery, but I do know that NBA scoring leader Houston Rockets’ James Harden served Spanish superstar Minnesota Timberwolves’ Ricky Rubio with a WICKED Cross-Over last night, followed up with a step-back three! Ironically, Rubio is usually the man with the tricky dribble, but met his match with Harden! Check out the tape right here!
Quite the BuzzKill, pertaining to what the NBA furnished today on the trade/free-agency deadline, highlighted by Knicks’ F/C Amare Stoudemire going to Dallas (Mavericks) and BK Nets’ Kevin Garnett AKA KG going back to Minnesota (Timberwolves)! Watching the Mavericks as we speak, I do not know if Amare can help them enuff?! I’m proud that KG can go back where it all begin! Other than that the noise was soft…
Amare Stoudemire, is ready to set roll, sail and part ways from the NY Knicks, who on the break tip agreed to buyout the remainder of his five-year $100 Million contract! Stat quickly took control in NY averaging 25.3 points per game and 8.2 rebounds per game for the first 77 games (in 2010), but then fell plague to injury! Amare became a better post player and center in New York, but he never got quite going always laboring with his bad knees and showing holes in his D! Amare did everything from spots on Sesame Street to bathing in red wine (recently) during his stay in the BIG APPLE!
The current NBA Champion Super San Antonio Spurs’ coach Gregg Popovich notched his 1,000th win on Monday night! Marco Belinelli hit the game-winning buzzer beater with 3 seconds left to give the Spurs a dramatic 95-93 win over the Indiana Pacers! Coach Pop became the ninth coach all-time to accomplish the feat (chart below), and the third quickest to get there (behind Phil Jackson and Pat Riley)! Pop took the best players from overseas and groomed them into a Championship team (five championships) year in and year out! Also, he finished with the second highest winning percentage (.684) from the 1,000 and over club only behind Phil Jackson (.704)!
All you discounters better jump on the Lebron train, as his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, are coming full blast down the tracks… rolling… winning 12 straight! Lebron was rocking his black tee which emphatically said, “Roll With The Winners: RWTW” after his team touched up CP3 and the LA Clippers, 105-94! The refs handed out five techs (technical fouls) and one ejection (Matt Barnes) to the Clips, who started to get frustrated trailing by over 20 points for the majority of the game!
This year’s Super Bowl was a tale of glory for Patriot fans, and a straight up heart-breaker for Seahawk fans! The game came down to the last play with the Seahawks (down 28-24) on the 1/2 yard line about to score… when suddenly Seahawks’ QB Russell Wilson throws a trick play pass which was intercepted and effectively ended the game with only 20 seconds left! In many people’s opinion (including mine), Seahawks’ beast-mode RB Marshawn Lynch should have run in the ball for the TD!!! All is all it was a fantastic finish, as Pats’ QB Tom Brady went from sweating profusely in disbelief to jumping off the bench with tears of joy!
