I want to see if the Knicks can do a better job slowing down LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Both players got into the lane way too easily last year against the Knicks. The Knicks have to play the pick-and-roll better and improve their individual defense.
Like everyone red blooded American, I would have loved to see the Heat lose in the Finals to the Oklahoma City Thunder. With that being said, part of me is happy because this asinine LeBron James narrative can finally be put away.
CBS Local Sports was able to get a look at Battier’s pregame playlist, and as expected, it’s the perfect mix of songs to inspire a veteran playing a for a title.
With two games of the NBA Finals in the books, here are some of my thoughts on the current state of the series and beyond as this star-studded quest for the title continues on Sunday evening.
The old cliché reads, “Defense wins championships.” But this season, it may very well be the Thunder’s high-octane offense that gets them a title.
The Heat are focused around stars, but right now two of them (Bosh and Wade) for a variety of reasons, aren’t playing like ones. Unless things change, the Thunder will be celebrating a title a lot sooner than people think.
With the NBA Finals set to begin on Tuesday night, here is a closer look at the matchups that will be critical in determining the eventual champion.
Stoudemire, whistled out of the game, extended his hand toward Shane Battier only to retract it at the last moment. Psych!
The Knicks defeat the Heat 89-87 to force Game 5 and snapped their 13-game playoff losing streak.
The Knicks were dealt a blow on the scoreboard and to their roster as Iman Shumpert was carried off the court. The Knicks were defeated by the Heat 100-67 in Game 1.
The Knicks snapped a nine-game home winning streak as they fell to the Heat 93-85 on Sunday.
Zach Randolph had 21 points and a franchise-record 21 rebounds, and the Grizzlies rallied from a 16-point deficit to stun the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-93 in overtime Saturday and grab a 2-1 lead in their Western Conference semifinal.
