The NBA season has now passed the quarter mark of the season and some things are starting to really take shape. The time to say that a team needs time to gel is diminishing and we are getting closer and closer to panic time for some teams. The Rockets have been downright dominant. They have not lost a game when Chris Paul has played and in the games without Chris Paul they are 10-4. They are currently on a 9 game winning streak. The Warriors are without Stephen Curry for the

The 117-104 final score in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals did little justice to the domination meted out by LeBron James and the Cavaliers. Finding an answer for everything the Celtics threw his way, James filled the stat sheet with 38 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists. In winning his 12th straight playoff game dating back to the 2016 postseason, it was hard for anyone watching, not to think that it’s only a matter of time before the Cavs are playing for their 2nd cha
LeBron James is in the midst of one of the greatest playoff performances in the modern era of the NBA. Through eight games – which included back-to-back sweeps of the Indiana Pacers and the Toronto Raptors – James is averaging 34.4 points per game, 7.1 assists per game, 9.0 rebounds per game, 2.1 steals per game, and 1.5 blocks per game, all of which rank in the top three among players still playing in this year’s postseason. To state the obvious, LeBron and the Cleveland Cav

When looking at every playoff series, there is one guy that can outperform expectations and change the series. For the Boston Celtics that player is Kelly Olynyk. Now there are plenty of players on the Boston Celtics that could easily be thought of as the X factor of a series. The thing is, none of them bring to the table what Olynyk does. Kelly Olynyk is the typical role player in the NBA. The seven footer out of Gonzaga has a knack for scoring and has the size to match it.
In a series that was filled with theatrics, game-winning shots and surprising performances, the Boston Celtics did just enough to push their noses across the finish line to win the series against the Washington Wizards four games to three. Taking Game 7, 115-105, the C’s booked a date with the defending NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. In a rematch of a series from two years ago, the matchup pits the top two seeds in the Eastern Conference.
Thanks to an unexpected Kelly Olynyk game, Isaiah Thomas and the Boston Celtics squeeze past John Wall and the Washington Wizards at TD Garden Monday night to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. It was a grueling 7-game series that really tested the Celtics, but awaiting them are the defending champions Cavaliers, who has been itching to play. LeBron James and his boys has been off since May 7th, thanks to their 4-0 sweep against the Toronto Raptors. The Cleveland Caval
