CLIPPERS 102 SPURS 96 F...CLIPPERS Starters > SPURS Starters at least in Game 6 as we head back to STAPLES L.A. Sports Arena Set-Up for a Game 7!..."Fight for LARRY" as Game Night w/BLAKE was ridiculous! #LACvsSAS #ClipperNation #SpurWars #SeriesTied3-3

This series has been all about the numbers as game 6 was no different as the Los Angeles Clippers Starters take it right to the San Antonio Spurs Starters and it was no contest. Clips Starters outscore Spurs Starters 87-48 and it was the Spurs Bench that bailed out the Spurs that gave them hope in the end.

Blake Griffin had a game-high 26 points and a dozen rebounds with six helpers as he was leading the Clips with everything he had. A nip and tuck affair came down to the Clips looking like the younger team for the most but not even that. L.A. just made shots and in order to win you have to score.

CP3 added 19 points and fifteen assists with JJ Redick also dropping 19 as DeAndre Jordan chipped in with15 points and fourteen boards. San Antonio was +24 points from the arc but -10 in points from the stripe.

Spurs Kawhi Leonard shot just 3 for 15 with Tony Parker 4 for 12 and Danny Green 3 for 9. It was a bad shooting night for San Antonio as they rode Marco Belinelli's team-high 23 points including 7 from 11 from the stripe. Boris Diaw added 17 as the Spurs Bench scored 48 points to the Clips Bench 15 points.      

Now we get Game 7 on "Fight Night" at 7pm ET at Staples with the home team 95-24 All-Time hitting the winner's circle. San Antonio has some odds stacked against them and the Clippers are starving...something has to give!


 

T'Wolves @22Wiggins named NBA lead "DONUT-RUNNER" for 2014-15!..."SQUEEZE the ORANGE" as 10K Lakes Pro Hoops #1 Rook ANDREW WIGGINS is "Rookie of the Year" over Bulls MIROTIC! @22Wiggins #TWolves #NBA#1DonutRunner

There was a little bit of intrigue to who was going to be the Logo's Rookie of the Year dba lead Donut-Runner at Bluedude Sportstalk. Minnesota Timberwolves Andrew Wiggins wins the award by a landslide vote as his name was on that trophy once Milwaukee Bucks rook Jabari Parker went down with that torn ACL.

Wiggins was solid for the 'Wolves as he got better as the season went along. The 'Wolves have a young nucleus with Wiggins right in the middle of that nucleus with fellow rook and teammate Zach "Trampoline" LaVine. Looking at Wiggins 2014-15 numbers quite impressive:

The 2014-15 Lead DONUT-RUNNER Voting
NBA Rookie of the Year

1. Andrew Wiggins #10KLakesProHoops
2. Nikola Mirotic #WestSideStoryReport
3. Nerlens Noel #SeventySixers


Mirotic was quite impressive breaking that rotation as Bulls Coach Tom Thibodeau runs that Bulls Rotation like the "Iditarod". He was a load from mid-season on playing with both the 1st and 2nd units.

Noel showed signs o what he can be as far as rebounding and being a rim-protector. Sixers have themselves a pretty good PF moving forward in Noel.  

CLIPPERS @ SPURS in Game 6 w/PLAYBOOK in the ALAMO City!..."Fight for LARRY" as the best series going gets to the Elimination Stage for more Drama!...Can the SPURS close out the CLIPS with Staples BLUE and RED running on "It's our Series"! #LACvsSAS #ClipsNation #SpursFamilia #SpursCommunityUp3-2

The Los Angeles Clippers were right there as were the San Antonio Spurs as we go nip and tuck again for game 6. A rebound here and miss shot there and play not executed and defensive assignment not followed its over the final score. NBA Playoff basketball just does not get any better than this whether its round 1 or the "Fight for Larry" with the "Fight for Bill" (NBA Finals MVP Trophy named after Bill Russell) waiting in the wings.

We get Clippers at Spurs in an elimination game for the Clips with both teams desperate to move on whether it be to the next series or next game. It will be the little things of course as the Stars will come out to play. Who will step up and be the next to make their name in "Winning Time" in this series?

CP3 and Blake will do their part...

Kawhi and Dunc will do their part also...

Will the Real TP9 of Peak USA Scooby Doos of Spurs Nation stand up?

DeAndre Jordan has been all of that and will he still be aggressive in and around the offensive glass?

the Money Ball is a huge factor as which ever team has shot it well has won...

"Attack Mode" the Rim accompanied by the Free Throw Line...

"A Tribe called Clippers Bench" where were they in game 5?

Spurs Boris Diaw as the Clips must pay closer attention to him and look him up under "Craftsman Tools" as he is as crafty as they get...

Clips need Jamal "206" Crawford in this one and Austin Rivers with key contributions...

"Scrums" 50/50 Splading Oranges...

It will go down to the wire...who will be the Hero and who will be the Goat?

Where do you start as I am tired of explaining things in "Playbook" with the Bulls playing "Thibs Ball" as the Bulls have struggled playing and the staff coaching them up. The Bulls Rotations have been out of sorts for quite sometime as Thibs had a really short leash in Game 5 for what...it's the whole roster is NBA Players play them Thibs!

Now we get a Game 6 as the Bucks win game 4 in extras an then went wire to wire at the Madhouse on "Another Manic Monday" and beat them convincingly. I don't know about all that "Beleiveland" Talk as the winner will get the Cavs but the Bulls need to be on their best  behavior tonight or a game 7 is in the cards for no apparent reason whatsoever! Bulls in a must-win and I don't care how you slice it!

That top 10 to 15 picks has teams drooling if they need an "Edge Rusher" dba "Red Jersey Collector" at Bluedude Sportstalk.

Would the Pittsburg Steelers in need of a young edge-rusher take the troubled OLB Randy Gregory from Nebraska?

Watch Backers Eli Harold and Shaq Thompson as well as Bednardrick McKinney they can get into the 1st round at Backer...

Dupree from Kentucky has flew up the board and right past Clemson's Vic Beasley...

Gurley makes a ton of sense as the Vikes are saying no to A.P. leaving but I beg to differ...he is gone with picks!

Mariota to the Bears is tricky...as they have a ton of needs on "D"!

Brown to the Bengals as Domata Peko and Geno Atkins need to bring a young buck with them...

Watch CBs Ronald Darby and Marcus Peters as they could get into the 1st round depending on who you talk to...

 

INGRAM heads to DUKE boosting them to #1!...BLUE DEVILS 2015 now #1 Ranked Class..."SCHOLASTIC DAYZ" as Kinston, N.C. HS @B_Ingram13 chooses the DUKIES over the TAR HEELS and #BBN the WILDCATS of UK! @B_Ingram13 @DukeBasketball #BlueDevilsHoops #KRZYZEWSKIVILLE

The #4 player overall in the Rivals Top 150 Brandon Ingram says no to the thought to be favorite North Carolina Tar Heels and heads to the rival Duke Blue Devils. The 6-8 190lb WF also had feelers from Kentucky who was thought to be the pick if Ingram had not chosen UNC.

Looking at the situation closer as the Bluedude has been watching this kid for quite sometime he comes from the Kinston, N.C. HS Vikings. Ingram led Kinston to four straight H.S. Championships. It is also home of one Jerry Stackhouse and Reggie Bullock that's what makes the Duke choice even more mind-bottling

Ingram game is smooth as he reminds me of former UConn Star and longtime NBA Players Donyell Marshall from Reading, PA. Long and athletic with a nice wing game off the bounce with a smooth handle, can shoot it from deep, get to the rim with that wire frame of his, and has a nice face-up and back to the basket post game. His build is similar to 2015 projected NBA Lottery Pick in Combo Guard DeAngelo Russell from Ohio State University.

Taking a sneak peek at the 2015 Duke Blue Devils Recruiting Class that was a week or so ago in the top 15 and now is #1 overall:

#KRZYZEWSKIVILLE 2015 Recruiting Class


#4 Brandon Ingram WF 6-8 Kinston, N.C.
#14 Derryck Thornton PG 6-1 Henderson, NV
#16 Chase Jeter PF/C 6-10 Las Vegas, NV
#25 Luke Kennard SG 6-5 Franklin, OH

All the Rankings from the Rival Top 150...

Duke loses their top 4 players as three of those players Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow, and Tyus Jones all will be 1st round picks in the 2015 NBA Draft. Quinn Cook maybe a 2nd rounder was the lone senior on the team...

Duke's top 3 Players back are SG/SF Matt Jones,  SG Grayson Allen and PF Amile Jefferson as the above four will join those three...


SPURS 111 CLIPPERS 107 F..."HERO BALL" no NBA on TNT its called "SPUR WARS" and the CHAMPS can end it back home on Thursday!..."Fight for LARRY" as I somehow feel a BACK 2 BACK and that is getting way ahead of myself! #SASvsLAC #SpursWars #newCLIPJoint #SASLeads3-2

If the NBA Finals 2K15 is anywhere near the Spurs/Clippers Series ratings will be through the roof. A nip and tuck affair as the Chess Match between Spurs Coach Gregg "Pops" Popovich and Clippers lead man Glenn "Doc" Rivers continues on a five-star scale.

A game that simply came down to a missed free throw, turnover, missed rebound, missed shot, or a missed assignment put the potential loser in harm's way. The Spurs simply made one last play bigger than the Clippers and it was that missed free throw and that rebound by Kawhi Leonard and it wasn't the basket interference by DeAndre Jordan.

Looking at even closer the team that has won every game in this series performed well shooting the Spalding orange from the field and the arc.as tonight was no different. Spurs playing "Spur Wars" shot 11 for 23 from the arc the Clippers a woeful 1 for 14 from deep a 7% clip. Add in the Clips missed 16 free throws shooting 26 for 42 and the Spurs hit 28 for 37...do the math!

Spurs Tim Duncan lead San Antonio with 21 points and eleven boards with Kawhi Leonard adding 18 points and nine boards. The Clips Trio of CP3 (19 pts 10 asst), Blake (30 pts 14 rebs 7 asst), and DeAndre (21 pts 14 rebs) all had the numbers for Team Ballmer to get into the Winner's Circle. It was those aforementioned numbers that spelled gloom and doom for the Clips in this pivotal game 5 loss.

Now we get Spurs and Clippers in the Alamo City on Thursday April 30th at 9:30pm ET as it will be in Elimination Game...  

I know it's  player's league and game but the X's and O's coupled with the attention to detail by these Coaching Staff's is simply 2nd to none!

DIALLO the 5-Star and Big MAC chooses Rock Chalk JAYHAWK!..."SCHOLASTIC Dayz" as KANSAS over the JOHNNIES of St. JOHN's and the #BBN KENTUCKY for Diallo among others! @cheick_diallo13 #KU #RockChalkJayhawk

The Kansas Jayhawks landed maybe the best freshman in the land when it all said and once the smoke clears after the 2015-16 college basketball season. 2015 McDonald's All-American Game M.V.P. and 2015 Jordan Brand Classic M.V.P Cheick Diallo is headed to Phog Allen as he picks the Jayhawks over the Johnnies of St. John's and the #BBN Kentucky Wildcats.

Diallo is a smooth athlete that plays within himself but still is spectacular in the open floor and in and around the paint. He shined in both the 2015 Big Mac Game and Jordan Brand Classic in 2015 so much that he walked away with the Hardware.

The 6-9 Diallo playing at Our Savior New American in Long Island, N.Y. was dominant also on the Nike EYBL Circuit the last two seasons as well. Now he joins a talented crop in Lawrence that should be right in the thick of a Final 4 Appearance in 2016.

PIRATES 2 CUBS 6 F...FOWLER, CASTRO, and LAKE supply the Run Support for WOOD as the NORTH Siders go for the Sweep on Wednesday over the PIRATES!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" as the CUBBIES jumped all over the BUCS Starter LOCKE! #PITvsCHC # RaiseTheJollyRoger #NorthSiders #TheFriendlyConfines

The Chicago Cubs hit the Pittsburgh Pirates pitching hard again as the North Siders take the first two of a three-piece at the "Friendly Confines" on Tuesday Night. Tonight it was LHP Travis Wood with the honors as he gets through troubled 4th frame to grab his 2nd victory of the 2015 season 6-2.

The Cubs offense supplied Wood early and often Addison Russell doubled home Starlin Castro in the 3rd making it 1-0 Cubbies as Junior Lake moves to 3rd. Then Dexter Fowler singles home both Lake and Russell making it 3-0 as Jeff Locke would get some much-needed run support at the top of the 4th.

With Andrew McCutchen on 1st and one out Starling Marte takes Wood deep for a two-run blast making it 4-2 Cubbies. Wood would settle down after that going seven strong allowing five hits and two runs giving up that two-run blast and striking out nine Pirates.

The North Siders would come right back in the bottom half of the 4th with two more runs on Kris Bryant and Castro RBI singles making it 6-2 Cubs and that would be you final. Locke would be saddled with the "L" going 3 2/3 frames giving up six runs (5 ER) on eight hits as he walked three and struck out five.

The Cubbies move to 12-7 while the Pirates fall to 11-10 as we get Bucs Ace Gerrit Cole versus Cubs Kyle Hendricks...at 8:05pm ET "Hump Day" night on "Get Away Day".  

MAVERICKS 94 ROCKETS 103 F...RED Nation finishes off the MAVS as DALLAS just could not get over the "HUMP" all game long shooting a dismal 5 for 26 from Deep!..."Fight for LARRY" can HOUSTON be CLUTCH CIty once again in the West? #DALvsHOU #MavsNation #RedNation #RocketsWinSeries4-1

Coulda woulda shoulda as the Dallas Mavericks revamped starting five gave the Rockets its first loss in the series and gave Red Nation all it could handle in the clincher. In the end the Mavs just did not have enough front line players to match up with the maybe NBA M.V.P. in James Harden and a host of others playing their roles with Dwight Howard getting back to 1/2 of what he once was.

Behind a game-high 28 points from Harden and 18 points and nineteen boards and four blocks from "Dwight of Three Stripes' the Rockets held off a few different runs in the 2nd half to end their series with Dallas 4-1. Josh Smith came off the bench adding 20 points and eight boards as the Mavs top six players performed for the most part up to snuff to get the game 5 "W"!

Dallas down just 56-50 at the break never once took the lead and on a few occasions got to within three points but could not get over the hump. That JJ Barea "J" that made it 88-85 Rockets was the last time they would get to within one possession of the Rockets losing going away 103-94.

"Mississippi Lightning" Monta Ellis had a team-high 25 points on 26 FGs with Dirk Nowiztki adding 22 points and fourteen boards. It was that 5 for 26 from deep an the Rockets holding a +15 in points from the arc that was the difference in the outcome. 

Clutch City will need to everything and then some as they may have to go through the other team in Texas the Spurs of Spurs Family if they can get past the Clippers.

The San Antonio Spurs was hit with some of that "Stuff" they have been handing to Western Conference Opponents for years on Sunday as the Clips win game 4 getting home court back in their favor.

The Clippers PG CP3 who was told by not only teammates but family and friends to be more aggressive offensively did that in game 4 with resounding results. The Spurs will have to counter that as it gets real interesting that chess match between "Pops" and "Doc" two of the best in the game from game to game and in-game adjustments. Now we get game 5 at Staples L.A. Sports Arena Set-Up for all NBA Heads to see.

PLAYBOOK

Now that CP3 was aggressive in game 4 looking for his offense how do the Spurs play him?

Kawhi Leonard still a problem as the Clips will looking to cut off others Electric and Water and Sewage...

"A Tribe called a Clippers Bench" was a factor as Austin Rivers and Agent 206 dba Jamal Crawford stole the show how does that Spurs Bench counter led by Patty Mills in game 5?

Open Looks must be knocked down as the winner in every game has shot the Spalding Orange well...

Spurs need to turn B.G. 32 into a jump-shooter as Blake needs to stay near and on the block on his sweet spots and attack the rim and as Nerf Rim (High-Percentage) is in his every game diet!

Clipper Nation needs to be loud from warm-up throughout to make a difference...

Where has Manu Ginoboli been as he is overdue for a breakout game....watch him closely!

Clips must get out in transition forcing their hand as who controls the "Pace" in this one wins?

Spurs need more shooters out there with Kawhi or they have shooters they just need to knock them down...

Offensive Glass equals 2nd chance opportunities...who wins that battle?

Half court execution...offensively and defensively...who wins?

Free Throw Attempts and Makes...who wins not settling for jumpers?

The Winner of game 5 is a winner of the series a very high-percentage of the time. If the Spurs win they can clinch back home for game 6. If the Clips win holding serve at home they can clinch in the Alamo City or get a game 7 back at Staples. Its NBA Theater at its best as we get game 5!

Redbirds Ace "WAINO" gone for 2015!..."WORD around the WARNING Track" talking ADAM WAINRIGHT and REDBIRDS Starting Staff moving forward! #WAINObusiness2K15 #Redbirds #RedOctober #STLCards

This was not in the cards for the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2015 season. Redbirds Ace RHP Adam "Waino" Wainright will be out for the remainder of the 2015 season due to an torn Achilles suffered against the "Brew Crew" this past weekend.  

Initial reports were it was an Ankle, Achilles, and Foot and now through numerous media outlets its confirmed a torn Achilles. The Redbirds now must move fast and in a hurry as their Starting Rotation takes a huge hit as well as if they get to the postseason.

Let's take a look at the Redbirds 2K15 post-WAINO:

2K15 RedBirds Starters in Order:

RHP Lance Lynn
RHP John Lackey
RHP Michael Wacha
RHP Carlos Martinez

Redbirds still have Arms but that #1 Arm will be missed. #1 Arm to call up LHP Marco Gonzalez is currently on the 7-day DL. RHP Carlos Villanueva is right behind him with both LHP Tyler Lyons and LHP Tim Cooney most likely to get the call up to get some starts in that 5-man rotation.

Note: Wacha hopefully will get back to his 2013 self after that surgery and injury-plagued 2014.  

As we go to press the Cards are a game up in the NL Central on the Cubbies at 12-6...

360 Degrees....

You never know as they are plenty of scenarios and this is a rough draft as teams are jockeying as we go to press to see what out there moving up or out of their current pick. My Steelers if they have a choice between both OLB Randy Gregory and Safety Landon Collins where do you go? Jarvis Jones looks like that 4.9 40 yard dash he ran in Athens and Shamarko Thomas can't stay on the field but his upside is tremendous at Safety as he worked out last summer with Troy Polamalu in L.A..

The Titans have to be feeling like the Operator Assistance as everyone probably has called them and they may even called themselves on a dry run on how to answer the calls.

Mock #2 should be more to the real draft as the Bluedude gets more feelers from my Sons ages 10, 10, and 13...I know what your thinking and keep it moving and keep reading. Their advice and my Draft Room is better than the Eagles Draft Room...and take that #FlyEaglesFly with lead man Kelly playing Fantasy Football with real Duffel Bags...Wayne's World that is!

Browns and Saints have two picks each in Round 1 and this is where you can make a leap with the right picks come Roster time as they both need "Plug and Play" Guys...

See you at Mock #2 on "Hump Day"...

"All-EASTERN Time Zone" LOGO Watch Fusions talking GOLD Swagger, SEVENTY-SIXERS, the C's, WIZ Kids D.C., and #WeTheNORTH...who will make the 1st Team and the 2014-15 P.O.Y? #LogoWatchFusions #PacerNation #76ers #DCWIzardry #Celts #RaptorNation

The 2013-14 All-Eastern Time Zone Squad was packed with Raptors and Pacers with a Wiz Kids the 5th member and how quickly times have changed in the east. This years squad might have a player from the Green Team and multiple Wizards as John Wall might be the P.O.Y. Last season it was #WeTheNorth DeMar DeRozan getting the nod!

360 Degrees...

Wall-Star led the Wizards to a 5th place finish in the East and started his 1st All-Star Game. He also landed a shoe deal from Adidas after leaving Reebok which had nothing to do with him being P.O.Y.. He was 2nd in waiting on tables (Assists) behind CP3 (10.3) at 10 apg. He had a nice run in 2014-15 and its not over yet.

Lowry also had a career year as he made his 1st All-Star game appearance. He bad 2nd half didn't help his cause for maybe P.O.Y. or did it help the Raptors. K.L. of 'Nova Hoops Lore is a top 5 two-way PG in the "Logo" without question.

DeRozan missed 22 games with that groin injury but 60 was he cutoff for making the team and he made it. One of the premier Shooting Guards in the "Logo" as he is the Raptors best pure scorer as 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year Lou Williams is also right there.

Isaiah Thomas edges out teammate Avery Bradley as he led the C's charge to "Winning Time" in 2014-15 and a 7th place finish ion the east. Thomas though is a shoot first PG make no mistake about it and maybe a steal getting him from Phoenix and a huge loss for the Sacramento Kings.

Lou Williams capped off his 2014-15 Season with KIA NBA Sixth Man of the Year.  A perfect compliment to PG K.L. as Lou-Will "Gets Buckets:" and a deft-shooting touch with unlimited range.   Ironically enough as we go to press the Raptors get three players on the 1st team and get bounced in the 1st round of the "Fight for Larry" by the Wizards...go figure!

PIRATES 0 CUBS 4 F...HAMMEL dealing and RIZZO and BRYANT handling things at the Dish as "MADDON Ball" strikes vs the BUCCOS!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" as the CUBBIES move to 11-7 in April! #PITvsCHC #Pirates #Cubbies #NLCentral2K15Biz

Things are starting to settle down on the North Side as this team is nowhere near the 2014 team as the North Siders leave April this week with a winning record. Tonight it starter and RHP Jason Hammel's turn vs the NL Central Pirates at Wrigley and he didn't disappoint!

The Cubbies opened the scoring in the 3rd vs Buccos starter Vance Worley as Anthony Rizzo goes RBI double with two on 1st and 2nd scoring Dexter Fowler. Then it was Kris Bryant cashing in  with ducks on the pond with a single scoring both Jorge Soler and Rizzo making it 3-0 Cubbies.

Rizzo singles in the 5th scoring Addison Russell after he singled and advanced on a Fowler single. That was plenty for Hammel who goes eight strong allowing just four hits and striking out seven. Hammel gets the shutout win as Worley takes the loss.

Vance goes six allowing four runs on nine hits as he walked one and struck out three. The Bucs only mustered four hits with Worley getting one of those hits. Meanwhile the Cubbies 1-4 hitters of Fowler, Soler, Rizzo, and Bryant go 8 hits and three runs scored with four RBI.

Cubbies are just a game back in the Central trailing the Redbirds who will be without Ace RHP Adam "Waino" Wainright due to an ankle and an achilles. The Bucs fall to 11-9 in  3rd in the Central...  

BUCKS 94 BULLS 88 F..."FEAR the DEER" puts "SEE RED" and #BullsNation in the HEADLIGHTS as we head back to BEER Town U.S.A. with Chicago leading 3-2!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" with the "Fight for LARRY" powered by LENGTH, ATHLETICISM, and J-KIDD on the X's and O's! #MILvsCHI #BUCKSnation #DaBULLS #WestSideStoryReport

The Chicago Bulls probably have the Cleveland Cavaliers on their mind as we head back to Milwaukee with the Bucks getting their full undivided attention. The Bucks go into the Madhouse with their top 5 of 7 players "Wet behind the Spalding Orange" only to see the Bucks go wire to wire with composure and discipline for a shocking 94-88 "W"!

The Bucks did commit 17 turnovers but shot 16 for 16 from the stripe with their two biggest offensive threats having a night. Michael Carter-Williams dba M.C.W. of the 'Cuse almost messed around and got a Triple-Double with 22 points and nine assists with eight boards and three blocks to boot. Kris Middleton added 21 points (13 points in 1st Qtr). It just appeared like the Bucks wanted it more and the Bulls looking ahead for I don't know what reason is now in a series.

The get a game-high 25 points and ten boards from Pau Gasol and Jimmy Butler adding 20 points with ten boards and six assists. D-Rose chipped in with13 points and six turnovers. The Bulls once again were careless with the Vegetable in key spots in the game and couldn't get key stops not buckets. A 4 for 22 from the arc helped the Bucks cause dearly!

We now head back to Beer Town U.S.A. with the Bulls up 3-2 as we get a April 30th Thursday Night game with the 2015 NFL Draft in full swing...Bulls Nation good luck with those happenings in Milwaukee!      


HAWKS 115 NETS 120 F/OT...Brooklyn's D-WILL went back to his Fighting ILLINI Days and the HIGHLIGHT Factory took a page out of BRAVES Country and RISE Up!..."Fight for LARRY" as the B.K. and A.T.L. all tied up heading back to the new OMNI dba PHILLIPS Arena! #ATLvsBKN #ATLHawksNation #FlatbushNETS #SeriesTied2-2

The Brooklyn Nets seemingly done heading back to Flatbush down 0-2 has hit their stride to the tune of a 2-2 tie heading back to Atlanta. The night belonged to former The Colony Texas HS Star Deron Williams and Fighting Illini All-American as he goes circa 2007-08 Jazz Style dropping 35 points while handing out seven helpers.

The Hawks had their chances in regulation as did the Nets as D-Will miss the potential game-winning "J" with around six seconds remaining on the clock leading the Hawks that mush time to get off a potential game-winner. Paul Milsap took too much time and didn't get the shot off as we headed to extras all knotted up 104-104. Jeff Teague led the Hawks with 18 at the end of regulation with D-Will with 33 points leading the Nets.

Brooklyn then goes on a 16-11 run to end the game in extras as they hit a money ball and five free throws accounting for half of the 16. Brooks Lopez added 26 points and ten boards to go with D-Will's 35 with Joe Johnson chipping in with 17 points.

Teague and Demarre Carroll led the Hawks each with 20 points as Teague added 11 assists and Carroll hauled in nine boards. All five Hawks starters were in double figures as Atlanta pounded the Nets on the glass 55-40 (18-11 Off).

It simply came down to players making the shot or the play or both as you make your name in "Winning Time"!

Game 5 in Atlanta on "Hump Day" Wednesday on NBA on TNT as time is TBD...

ANTONIO BROWN and STEELERS WR Depth Chart 2015 heading into Voluntary Workouts!..."TRIPLE DIAMOND Chronicles" as STEELERS Killer Bee #84 shows up for Workouts and the BLACK and YELLOW WR Depth Chart as we go to press! @AntonioBrown84 #SteelerNation #SteelerGang #Black&Yellow #BurghProSports #3DiamondChronicles

So much for staying out of workouts as reported through numerous media outlets Killer Bee #84 Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers and "Triple Diamond Chronicles" for Steelers Nation is at voluntary workouts today at the Steelers Southside Complex.

Brown just a week or so back has stated to what most NFL Players do in the middle of a contract and outperforming his contract he wanted a new deal. Well A.B. you know how the Rooney's do business  as you will get take care of on the back end as once a Steelers always a Steeler. Killer Bee #84 is in his 3rd year of a 6-year deal and there is no way he will win that battle.

As for the Steelers 2015 WR Depth Chart as we get into Voluntary Workouts with the NFL Draft coming up on Thursday April 30th in Chicago here it is:

That leaves Markus Wheaton as 3rd WR and Slot or # WR on the Depth Chart as he was much-improved as "Air Haley" was explosive!

There should be some real battles in OTA's leading up to Rookie Camp and Camp LaTrobe 2K15 as that Steelers "D" will look entirely different and it's about time especially in that Secondary!

 In 2013-14 on the All-Hudson River Squad it was comprised of three Nets and two Knicks. In 2014-15 is was rough going as to not only name the 1st team of 2014-15 but who was the freakin' M.V.P. as the Knicks played in your Mama's Basement all season long. The Nets Payroll says they are top-flight but on the hardwood far from it. This is a must-read as the M.V.P. might not even be a Knicks or Nets Player.

Joe Johnson dba "JJ" is night/day as you never know what Joe your going to get from game to game. Then you throw in that $23,180,790 salary made in the 2014-15 season Joe should be playing at like "Average Joe"!

Thad-Ex born and raised in Memphis played on the Atlanta Celtics AAU Team with Dwight Howard (Magic), Josh Smith (Hawks), and Randolph Morris (Kentucky) talking destinations right out of HS as Thaddeus Young played for Georgia Tech. He is consistent if anything and for Brooklyn that word is the world!

Brooks Lopez could be one of the best "Bigs" on the planet if is wasn't a one-way player. He too plays into that mentality of tonight I will go off and get 30 and a rebound. Tomorrow night I am tired and get 7 points 0 rebound and 0 blocks and go Agent 007...yes the Bluedude went there!

Note: Hardaway Jr. and Smith made the Honorable Mention Team as Hardaway led the Knicks in ppg and Smith played all 82 games that is worth something...right!

The  Milwaukee Bucks are "Loose" which means nothing to lose and at the Black Jack on Madhouse Money. The Bulls with pressure as the Cleveland Cavaliers are sitting back in C-Town with an Umbrella, Snacks, the PS4, XBox and NBA on TNT going on the 70" curved Samsung.

PLAYBOOK

Ok watching Game 4 J-Kidd wants to play "Nellie Ball" playing "Smalls" all over the hardwood. The Bulls need to make them pay playing "Mouse in the House" and take advantage of the Bucks when they go "Smurf Village"!

the "Spaniard" Pau Gasol needs the offense running through him and when they double the Bulls needs to move the Spalding orange..."Basketball for Dummies"!

Bucks OJ Mayo, Jared Dudley, and Jerryd Bayless were spectacular in Game 4 and the Bulls 2nd Unit or starters needs to force them to play in the half court and not in transition...

Jimmy Butler needs at least 30 touches minimum and not get froze out the 4th like in game 4 which was beyond me...

Bulls need to close out on Bucks Shooters like Middleton and Dudley and Mayo forcing them to make a play putting the Spalding orange on the deck...

"T-Time" Tony Snell if he is going to play needs to play with way more composure because at times he is like a HS Player scared of pressure..."Squeeze the Orange" fool...and call your HS Teammate Kawhi Leonard of Spurs Family for some pointers on Playoff Basketball!

J-Kidd vs Thibs as Kidd picked his pocket throughout the game and Thibs is up for more jobs...please he is running the Bulls Players like its the "Iditarod"!

Bulls must play in the moment as "Believeland" should not be on their minds...

Bucks will be dangerous and they will not step as they will be thinking let's gets game 6 back in Beer Town U.S.A...

Free Throws...who wins?

Rebounds ...who wins?

"Scrums" the 50/50 Spalding Oranges as who wants to get nasty?

Execution and "We Ball" not "Me Ball" as neither squad needs a Hero in game 5...play within yourself that Out-Of-Body Experience was back in Toddler Hoops!

Game 5 is here...let's go Bulls Nation and "See Red" and wear Red!

ROCKETS 109 MAVERICKS 121 F...MAVS stave off the ROCKETS trying to be "CLUTCH" representing "CLUTCH City"!..."Fight for LARRY" as the "BEREA & AMINU" Show is up and running...who? #HOUvsDAL #REDnation #MAVSgang #HOULeads3-1

The Dallas Mavericks if they are going to lose the series will not be doing it under the watchful eyes of Team M.F.F.L. dba "We are One"! That's right the Mavs stave off elimination and a four-game sweep at the hands of the Houston Rockets by playing inspired basketball well Carlisle Hoops in a nutshell!

In order for the Mavs to win game 4 they needed someone other than @Swish41 and "Mississippi Lightning" Monta Ellis to get it done and put their hands into the fire. Enter game 4 Starters JJ Barea and Al Faraq Aminu as they go in on the Rockets and maybe the Mavs have 9 lives.

Barea goes for 17 points and thirteen helpers with Aminu adding 16 points and a dozen boards. Yes Monta Ellis led all scorers with 31 points (13-21 FG) bit it was those two along with Monta as Dirk and Tyson Chandler combined for 26 points and twenty-two boards.

The Rockets lost the game right before the half when it was 48-48 with under five minutes before the break. Dallas went on a 13-5 to end the frame leading 61-53. That end of the frame burst led to a 26-4 run to start the 3rd and a 81:57 lead under the five minute mark in the 3rd. Red Nation made some runs but it was too late as the Mavs win 121-109 as the series heads back to H-Town 3-1 Rockets.

James Harden led the Rockets with 24 points and five helpers but that bench led by Josh Smith (23 pts 6 rebs) and Corey Brewer (22 pts 5 rebs) was huge. Mavs won the game on the glass (+14 and +9 Offensive boards) as they shoot nearly 55% from the field. Rockets did shoot 26-40 from the stripe and that was 19 more than the Mavs.

Game 5 on Tuesday April 28th at the Toyota Center...   

CANADIENS 2 SENATORS 0 F...It was a matter of time until CAREY PRICE took over and in Game 6 he was VEZINA-esque!..."Fight for LORD Stanley" as the Flying FRENCHMEN win the Series over the SENS 4-2! #MTLvsOTT #HABSnation #SENSOnIce #HABSWinSeries4-2

The Montreal Canadiens could not have asked for a better time for Five-Star Blue Paint Tenant Carey Price to go "Lock down" 24-7-365 the Frozen One stops here! With the "Habs" losing two in a row and the Ottawa Senators with Uncle Mo on their bench Price stops 43 SOG blanking the "Sens" 2-0.

The "Habs" needed Brendan Gallagher got the party started with late in the 1st with a shot past Craig Anderson for a 1-0 lead. The Flying Frenchmen" were on the defensive all night long being out shot some 43-20 but all you need is one when the "Price is Right"!

There was no scoring in the 2nd as the "Sens" shoot 16 at Price and the Habs only three SOG at Anderson. Then with a furious 3rd the "Sens" did everything but "Light the Lamp" as the Habs Max Pacioretty gets an Empty Netter with one second remaining as the "Habs" win the series 4-2.

Anderson held his own allowing that one goal in the first as he stopped 18 of 19 SOG. He had to be thinking he need to go shut out from here on out with Price going Vezina-eque in net at the other end.  

Montreal will now face next the Wings or Bolts as that series has been Little Ceasar's Pizza Delicious!

CLIPPERS 114 SPURS 105 F..."A TRIBE called CLIPPERS Bench" led by Bloodline RIVERS and JAMAL 206 stuns the Champs near the ALAMO!..."Fight for LARRY" with CP3 going CP Skills Academy and BLAKE dba "JAWS" from 007 Fame eating nothing but glass! #LACvsSAS #CLIPSnation #SPURScommunity #SeriesTied2-2

Just like that the Los Angels Clippers create the "Perfect Storm" as the Basketball Gods could not have created a better game plan and then executing it to a tee! Every time the Spurs countered where it looked like they were going to go on one of those patented runs the Clips tell them to go to their room!

It was the decisive 3rd frame that saw Austin Rivers off that Clippers Bench take over a stint in the game that the Clips needed someone other than CP3 or Blake to step up. He finished with 16 points (7-8 FG) as Jamal "206" Crawford added 15 to aid the Clips Starters.

Chris Paul went "Tunnel Vision" and Jordan Brand CP3 Skills Academy as "Sharing" the Spalding Orange was not in his cards with a worn-down and injured TP9 CP3 stayed in attack mode. 34 points (11-19 FG, 10-10 FT) and seven helpers later the damage was done with Blake playing "Jaws" from 007 Fame eating glass with 19 rebounds, twenty points and seven assists.  A sensational effort from the Clips and under "DOC" in year #2 this is a different team maybe with a different outcome!

K.L. was putting in work as usual with 26 points and seven boards while Tim Duncan added 22 point and fourteen boards. It was Tony Parker's 18 points that wasn't the story as he and "Dunc" missed 8 free throws between them going 10 for 18. Clips hoot nearly 54% from the field and that game 1 shooting came back in game 4 as the "Law of Averages" were going to creep in somewhere!

Game 5 back at Staples in L.A. on Tuesday April 28th as the time is TBD...    

BLUES 1 WILD 4 F...Star PARISE joins WILD Blue-Paint Tenant DUBNYK of Canada as they give the BLUE Notes the BLUES!..."Fight for LORD Stanley" as the "WILD on ICE" faces the INDIAN Head for the 4th straight time in Winning Time! #STLvsMIN #BlueNotes #SkatingWithTheWILD #MinnesotaWinsSeries4-2

Just like that the #1 and #3 Sees in the NHL Central in the Western Conference are eliminated in consecutive days. The Minnesota Wild behind a raucous crowd at the Xcel Energy Center finishes off the St. Louis Blues 4-1 in game 6 and the series 4-2.

It was Wild Star Left Winger Zach Parise's two goals and Devan Dubnyk's excellent play in the blue-paint that gives the Wild a 4-2 series win as they will face the Chicago Blackhawks in round 2. Parise started the scoring with the only goal in frame one making it 1-0 with a snapper beating Jake Allen who would later be puled in desperation by the Blues.

The Wild then strikes just over midway through the 2nd with a Justin Fontaine score making it 2-0 Wild. The Blues by then were all but out of it as they made the switch in net to Brian Elliot after the 2nd goal. That's when T.J. Oshie score just four seconds from the horn to end the 2nd for a 2-1 Wild lead sending Wild Nation to a disappointing 2nd intermission.

The back breaker was Parise's 2nd goal of the game coming just a minute into the 3rd making it 3-1 as the Wild the way net minder Devan Dubnyk was playing had things under control by then. Nino Niederreiter finished off the Blues with a empty netter for a 4-1 final score as the Wild and Xcel Energy Center went "Wild"!

Dubnyk stopped 30 of 31 SOG as Blues net minders Allen and Elliot combined to stop 17 of SOG. Now the Wild will face Chicago as the 3rd time might be a charm with the Indian Head having home ice!          

CAVALIERS 101 CELTICS 93 F..."BELIEVELAND" in NAVY sweeps the C's following LeBRON JAMES Lead!..."Fight for LARRY" as the CAVS are waiting for JIMMY BUTLER and Company! #CLEvsBOS #CavsNation #CeltsPride @CavsWin4-0

There was no doubt in the Cleveland Cavaliers Minds as to how they were go to approach their game 4 in Boston in Sunday. After seeing the Bulls gets stretched out to a game 5 and instead of going home and resting the Bucks have made game 5 really interesting. Meanwhile "Believeland" rolled out to a big lead to never give that lead up and roll to a 4-0 Series sweep of the the "Hub" Hoops 2014-15!

Behind a near-hit of a Triple-Doubles by both King James (27 points, 10 rebounds 8 assists) and "Kyrie for Mayor" (24 points 11 rebounds 3 assists) the Cavs rolled out to a 57-36 lead at the break to never look back. Yes the C's made a ice run in the 3rd cutting that deficit to single digits 70-61 but it was too late as the Cavs had already made up their mind.

In the 4th the C's go to within six points at 99-93 with under 40 seconds to play then the Cavs hit two free throws and the Celts missed shots in desperation for a Cavs 101-93 win. Isaiah Thomas and
"Sully" JJ Sullinger both led Boston with 21 points as Thomas added nine assist and "Sully" grabbed eleven boards. Boston's 3 for 23 from deep spelled an early exit as they will be better in 2015-16.

The Cavs now will get at least five to six days rest as their Semifinals match up with what's looking like the Bulls is on hold due to Chicago's inability closeout the Bucks last night forcing a Monday game 5 in the 'Go!

Remember after game 1 Folks were saying the Clippers won't shoot like that again well they missed shots in  game 3 coupled with no drive to play the other end hence "Blowout"...that will change in game 4 at least the defensive end will...

Spurs #1 guy and the Clippers have been knowing this is Kawhi Leonard as they must slow him down on the offensive end...

Clips must get out in Transition and look to attack the rim and quit settling for that "Money Ball" as the Stripe is your biggest Allie and that would be the free throw line...

Expect Spurs PG TP9 to be a little bit more in attack mode as that ankle has to be getting looser and better...

"Points in the Paint"...who wins?

What will be the adjustment from Kawhi guarding JJ Redick for the Clips as Rule 1 applies for JJ...if he is trailing your leaving and if K.L is playing under the screens you flare that simple?

Blake cannot bail out the Spurs "D" get on the block and attack the rim and quit settling for J's you are not Bosh or L-Train...the two best perimeter shooting "Bigs" in the game not named Dirk...

Half court execution on offense will be pivotal as this game 4 should be won there...

"A Tribe called Clippers Bench" vs the Spurs Bench...who wins?

Clips must keep Spurs Nation seated and limit the Spurs "Spurtability" as there will be runs both ways but can you stop the Spurs Runs with the Clips coming out of the Motel?

Clips do want to win this game to get Home Court back...Spurs do not want to give Home Court up and all that equals urgency, 110% max effort, and attention detail and knowing what going on at all times!

Game 4 is here enjoy Clips ands Spurs Nation...3:30pm ET NBA on ABC

360 Degrees...

Kyrie dba Uncle Drew of Pepsi Max arrived full swing in the 2014-15 campaign...A Nike Basketball Shoe Deal, his 2nd All-Star Game appearance, and playing with "Just a Kid from Akron" in King James. Kyrie is electric with the best Handle in the Milky Way Galaxy and a nightmare to cover 1 on 1. Now if D-Rose can get back close to what he was in his M.V.P. Days watch these battles with Kyrie.

Jimmy Butler dba the "See Red Butler" broke out in 2014-15 leading him to his 1st All-Star Game appearance. He also led the Bulls in scoring and a top 3 two-way back court player in the "Logo" today. The Bulls will resign him to the Max Contract this summer and his game is just getting started.

King James with No Headband and that's different with all the results being the same...the #1 Player in the Land...enough said!


The "Spaniard" Pau Pau Pau has been better than advertised as a "Big" in the Logo gets no more skilled than Pau. Yes he and Jo have some things to still workout as they didn't compliment each other fully but Pau might be the piece to get "See Red" out of the East in 2014-15 and past the Cavs!

Mr. Drummond dba Andre Drummond of UConn is all of that as he averaged 13.8 ppg 13.5 rpg and 1.9 blocks per...and he is "Next in LIne" to be one of the great "Bigs" in the Logo for sure. Now the Pistons stand to lose Greg Monroe which might even open up the Paint even more as 'Dre still is a work in progress on the offensive end...and that is "Fright Night" in the "D" 313!

PREDATORS 3 BLACKHAWKS 4 F...DARLING hits the "PHONE BOOTH" and out comes "CRAW-DAD" in Net as the "PREDS" are eliminated just like that!..."FROZEN TALK" 1901 West Madison as D.K. of "SPARTY ON" of East Lansing blasts the INDIAN Head into Round 2! #NSHvsCHI #PredsOnIce #FearTheINDIANHead #FrozenTalkHawks #CHI wins series 4-2

The Chicago Blackhawks started the game with Scott Darling as the Preds came right out and attacked him not letting him forget game 5 back in the Music City. The Preds struck first as James Neal got the party started a little over a minute in making it 1-0 beating Darling.

Seven minutes later Neal get a tip-in on the power play making it 2-0 Preds. The Hawks two minutes after that Patrick Sharp got the Hawks on the board making it 2-1. Not even a minute after that then Preds get goal #3 making it 3-1 as Coach "Q" went to the pen.

Corey Crawford to a standing ovation and the Hawks needed that, "Craw-Dad" needed that but when you have the best leader in the NHL in #19 leading things will automatically fall into place as the Captain and Coach "Q" expect nothing else.

The Indian Head I knew after that was going to get game 6 and move and because they are Lord Stanley Collectors and nothing else. Ironically enough look who scored not even a minute after Craw-Dad" went into net...#19 Captain Serious making it 3-2 on the power play. Then with six seconds remaining the Bison City Mullet" #88 strikes as Pekka Rinne had to be thinking where is my darn relief as its getting hot in the Madhouse!

After that the game settled down to game 6-like play in the 2nd with no scoring in that period. Then in the 3rd with things getting tense with both goalies holding their own it as D.K. of Sparty Hockey in East Lansing with a "Slapper" after he skated and danced...and skated some more and just like that 4-3 Hawks with 3:48 remaining with the Madhouse going Nut House with no stray-jackets!

The Hawks missed a few chances at the empty net but Hawks Win...Hawks Win...Hawks Win! "Craw-Dad" stopped all 13 SOG he face with Darling a Crawford-like 9-12 in frame one...grab some bench young man!

Rinne stopped 28 of 32 SOG as the Indian Head out shot Nashville 32-25. The Hawks now await the Minnesota Wild or St. Louis Blues in Round 2 and here we go Hawks Nation skating in May like always...Lol!


WARRIORS 109 PELICANS 98 F..."DUBS All Day" goes into the BIG EASY and stirs up CRAWFISH Gumbo, a SHRIMP Po' Boy Samich, and State BIRD of Louisiana HOOPS and the "BROW"!..."Fight for LARRY" as that G.S.W. Charter back to EAST Bay should be real smooth..."DUBS" win series 4-0! #GSWvsNOP #WarriorsGround #PelicansNest504 #NBAWest1vs8

Look nothing against Anthony Davis as he goes 36 points and eleven boards and three blocks but "Los Splash Hermanos" is simply Ruth Chris Steakhouse 24-7-365 delicious. "Dubs" finishes the sweep as Stephen Curry goes for a game-high 39 points with nine helpers and eight boards. Not his sidekick but Los Splash Hermanos numero dos...Klay Thompson added 25 points as they continue to wreak havoc on opposing game plans and defenses.

Not to mention they get 22 points and ten boards with eight assists in Draymond Green who is trying to play himself right out of town. He might not get the Max Deal but a home town discount which is leaving a few "crums" on the table not a side and a biscuit! "Dubs" were +_24 in points from the arc and that weapon right there is what the next team will have to contend with.

The Pelicans get 29 points from Eric Gordon as he leaves the Pelicans Brass thinking , " I wish that fool played 82 or close to"! The Pelicans Nest 504 allowed some 67 points in the 1st half as that game 3 loss was too hard to rebound from. They need two players healthy in 20115-16 and that is the aforementioned Gordon and former All-Star PG Jrue Holiday...and yes they will be better than a #8 seed in the west.

As for "Dubs" they await their next opponent in either Memphis or Portland as the Warriors were 3-0 vs Rip City in 2014-15 and 2-1 vs Grit and Grind...

BULLS 90 BUCKS 92 F...26 Turnovers and 39 points off those My Bad's!..."WEST SIDE Story Report" with the "Fight for LARRY" as BULLS starring in, " You want the ORANGE...No you take it...no let's give it away"!...BUCKS win and force a Game 5 and you want the "BELIEVELAND"! #CHIvsMIL #BullsNation #FearTheDeer #SeeRedLeadsSeries3-1

I know exactly where to start as we are going to leave all that talk about who did this and who did that! Let's go key Digits and Plays talking Bucks 92-90 "W" over the Bulls:

Bulls "See Red Butler" 33 points (12-17 FG 5-7 3pt FG ) and where was he in the 4th?

Derrick Rose coughs the Spalding Orange up as a "Live" Turnover with 4.3 seconds..Bucks get it takes off with the Orange and somewhere in there J-Kidd calls a timeout. Rule if you take a dribble then call time out in the back court you cannot advance the Orange on a timeout!   

Gasol 16 pts (5-10 FG) and 10 rebs...they seem to not want to give him the ball...Derrick that is!

Bulls 26 turnovers...Bucks 39 points off those turnovers and Bulls lose by two points!

Thibs game management and adjustments have been way off as he has to be thinking "Two Men and a Truck"...or a Pax right hook to the nose and it won't be the first time for Johnny Boy!

Bucks O.J. Mayo had just 18 when it felt like Jordan's Double Nickel back at World's Most Famous a few years back...

Not pointing the finger but D-Rose 8 turnovers...Pau 5 turnovers..and Jimmy 4 turnovers..that is 17 of the 26 between them 3 as the Orange goes through those three the most...unbelievable!

Bucks 12-5 Offensive Rebound advantage...

Bucks Bench 47 Bulls Bench 13 as J-Kidd went with his Vets over youth in the 3rd and most of the 4th...and it worked

Game 5 Monday April 27th at the Madhouse...


INDIANS 1 TIGERS 4 F...ALFREDO SIMON moves to 4-0 on the Bump with V-MART going 3 Ribbies as the Motor City KITTIES up end the TRIBE!..."A CUP of JOE in the SHOW Report" as the TIGERS Miggy walks 4 times! #CLEvsDET #Tribe #MotorCityKitties #ALCentralBiz

The Detroit Tigers gave starter Alfredo Simon two runs in the 1st and back to back runs in the 3rd and 4th as they slide by the Cleveland Indians 4-1 at Comerica Park on Saturday. Simon was better than good as he goes 6 2/3 frames allowing just six hits and a run striking out three and issuing two free passes.

As Simon gets the win moving to 4-0 it was Tigers DH Victor Martinez dba V-Mart going 2 for 4 knocking in three. Two singles one in the 1st and one in the 3rd as Tribe starter TJ House was chased after three frames. He gave up three runs in four frames and all were earned. He struck out three but those four free passes spelled gloom and doom for House.

The Tribe gets their lone run in the game on a Michael Brantley RBI-single in the 3rd as he goes 4 for 4 on the day accounting for the lone and four of the eight Tribe hits. On the flip side Miggy Cabrera was walked four times and the Tribe Strategy backfired with V-Mart coming through behind him (Tribe didn't see V-Mart's Digits from the 2014 Season).    

Motor City Kitties move to 12-6 and the Tribe falls to 6-10...the Rubber Game will be Sunday as we get Carlos Carrasco of the Indians vs Kyle Lobstein for the Tigers!

BULLS @ BUCKS Game 4 as the "WEST SIDE Story Report" dba "Fight for LARRY" w/PLAYBOOK goes Ready Alert 5 for the SWEEP!..."SEE RED" must end it to give themselves much-needed rest for Round 2!...BUCKS in "Survival Mode" as they will give the BULLS 110%! #CHIvsMIL #BullsNation #FearTheDEER #BullsUp3-0

The Chicago Bulls must finish off the Milwaukee Bucks as they do not want to be playing back at the Madhouse up 3-1 with this young team feeling themselves. The Bucks backed into a corner must come out fighting and they should and will give the Bulls Max-Effort on top of their best game of the series which might put them into the Winner's Circle for Game 4.

PLAYBOOK

D-Rose needs to stay aggressive and at the same time keep teammates involved more than 20 FG is too much...

M.C.W. and K-Middleton need to attack both Rose and Jimmy Butler making them work on defense...

Bulls need to go to Pau first and foremost...run that Bulls "Flow" through the "Spaniard" and that will open up everything else...

Bucks need the "Greek Freak" to make "Fundamentals" Mike Dunleavy Jr. pay for guarding him like in game 3 forcing Thibs Hand...

Glass Work and the Offensive Glass...who wins?

Money Ball Racks who knocks them down at a 40% clip or better...Bulls need to shoot no more than 25 which means that inside game to Pau is working...

Bucks need to make this the Penn Relays and bring Air Max 25th Anniversary Nike to the Bradley Center no Hoop Shoes...Transition Game

Bulls need to control the "Pace" as they need to pick their spots in Transition and run that half court offense forcing the Bucks to be discipline on "D"...

Aaron Brooks and Taj Gibson and Tony Snell vs O.J. Mayo and Jerryd Bayless and John Henson going Top Reinforcements must put in work...

Free Throw Line you get there...knock'em down!

Will the Bucks run a double at D-Rose early and often?

Bulls must weather that initial "Perfect Storm" by the Bucks in the first six minutes...

Bucks must play smart but play with urgency and organized desperation in order to have a chance...

CLIPPERS 73 SPURS 100 F...KAWHI LEONARD stars in "TROPHIES" as K.L. and SPURS Family playing SPUR Wars takes the CLIPS back to the L.A. SPORTS Arena Days!..."FIGHT for LARRY" KAWHI needs another BILL RUSSELL Trophy! #LACvsSAS #CLIPSnation #SpurWars #SpursRTrophyCollectors...Check out below at my EBay harr.a9 DUNC & KAWHI McFarlane Two-Pack Pic!

He is Kawhi Leonard as if his coming out party wasn't the last two NBA Finals dba "Fight for Larry" at Bluedude Sportstalk wasn't enough he is putting in work. 32 points on 13 of 18 from the field and 3 for 5 from deep and doing it to his hometown not his hometown team (you know he was Laker Nation growing up...or San Diego Conquistadors Nation with Star Guard Travis "Machine Gun" Grant or was K.L. even born early 70s...Lol!).

The Spurs at one point was up 92-57 with just above five minutes to go in the 4th. Did anyone get a shot of Clips Owner Ballmer heard he was completely balled by the 3rd. Anyway the Clips need to regroup and stay the hell away from the Riverwalk, the Motel T.V., and Twitter...it's "Roasting Time" L.A. Sports Arena Jokes!

Clips shoot 34% from the field and 26% from the arc as this game was over at the break. Game 4 should be real interesting to see if the Clippers can get back to their Staples Self...

Meanwhile at my EBay harr.a9 a Two-Pack I the Bluedude has put together for NBA McFarlane Collectors and Spurs Nation McFarlane Collectors...

"DUNC" and KAWHI Two-Pack with 8 Trophies between them in their Cases...$49.99 plus shipping

Dunc is numbered to 6000 Pieces made...

RAPTORS 99 WIZARDS 106 F...Are you kidding me as PAUL PIERCE told the "TRUTH" and nothing but the "TRUTH" and DINOSAURS let the "TRUTH" set you for a Fishing Trip early next week!..."FIGHT for LARRY" as Raptors GM UJIRI last seen in D.C. buying KINGSFORD Edge for CASEY's Seat...simply inexcusable! #TORvsWSH #WeTheNorth #WizKidsDC #ChocolateCityHoopsUp3-0

I in Bucks Rogers and the 25th Century didn't see this coming. The Toronto Raptors finish 4th in the East on the last day of the season and get what many saw as a favorable draw. Now some 10 days later they are one game from being tossed in with the 2014-15 Toronto Maple Leafs and that isn't a good look as Leafs Winger Phil "Pudge" Kessel has to be saying , " Misery loves Company"!

The Raptors lose 106-99 as Poland's Marcin Gortat > Lithuania's Jonas Valanciunas as "Air Gortat" goes for a team-high 24 points and thirteen boards as the Wizards shock the NBA World. Add "Wall-Star" John Wall's 19 points and fifteen helpers with the "Truth" chipping in with 18...Game ...Set...Match...Wiz Kids D.C.!

The Dinosaurs all of a sudden can't find the rim or the man or both as this is the type of series that has names attached to it for the last time. DeMar DeRozan brought his pride and A-Game with a game-high 32 points and six boards and six helpers. Collectively though shooting under 40% from the field and the arc coupled with both Kyle Lowry and Lou Williams struggling spelled gloom and doom for Team Drake Drizzy!

The Wizards now go for the sweep on Sunday in D.C. at 6:30pm ET on NBA on TNT...Raptor Nation I am with you on this one...shocked and no better time to go "Last Call" for Friday and Saturday!        

ROCKETS 130 MAVERICKS 128 F...Nike Basketball's JAMES HARDEN stars in "The BREAKFAST Defector drops DIRK +1 for 42" as #RedNation and #MavsNation go Dallas County Summer League at the AA 214!..."FIGHT for LARRY" as "MISSISSIPPI Lightning" MONTA had a look and Team CUBAN is down 3-0! #HOUvsDAL #RedNation #TeamMFFL #ClutchCityLeads3-0

Yes Mavs certified and verified sniper "Mississippi Lightning" Monta Ellis had a great look he just did not hit it. The Houston Rockets with not one team playing the other end gets a 130-128 win over the Dallas Mavericks sending Big D to a 3-0 Hole and so much for Chandler Parsons, Tyson Chandler, and Rajon Rondo giving the Mavs a shot at the west.

With Cowboys lead man Jason Garrett seated right next to the Rockets Huddle James Harden on timeouts right next to coach Harden goes for a game-high 42 points and was sensational. All that inspiration for that performance came from the "Human Torch" Stephen Curry's 40 last night as Harden wanted to give some voters on the fence one last thought for 2014-15 NBA M.V.P..  

"Fear the Beard" #13 was 15 for 24 from the field and 5 for 7 from deep as he also waited on nine Rockets tables. "Dwight of Three Stripes" not to be outdone grabbed 26 vegetables with thirteen points as Josh Smith added 18 off that Rockets bench.

The Mavs two biggest guns Ellis (34 pts 9 asst) was 15 for 25 from the field with nine helpers and the Mavs G.O.A.T. @swish41 (34 pts 8 rebs 4 asst) went 11 for 11 from the stripe. Look if the Mavs are going to go deep next season they need to grab a lead PG and they need to see if Pacers George Hill is available for a trade. What would the Mavs give them I have I know.

CLIPPERS @ SPURS from the ALAMO City in the "Fight for LARRY" w/PLAYBOOK!...CLIPS might regret that Game 2 Loss as the Plot more than thickens as its simmering in SPURS Land! #LACvsSAS #ClipsNation #SpurWars Series Tied 1-1

All i keep hearing is Blake Griffin's regulation blunder dribbling off his leg right to Boris Diaw. How we forget Game Night w/Blake's 26 points and a dozen boards with eleven helpers. Aw snaps Blake messed around and got a triple-double and take that Blake haters.

Look the Spurs have absolutely no one to stop the former "Boomer Sooner" Star but it's "Pops" they are facing as he will just someone else's water and electric off. The Spurs Bench and PG Patty Mills has been a huge spark plug in this series. Will the Spurs run a double-team at Kawhi Leonard as it appears he is the one the Spurs are running through?

Spurs need to shut down any Clipper not names CP3 and Blake...

Foul Trouble for both...could be an issue late in the game talking match ups!

"Points in the Paint"...who wins?

What do they do with CP3 on the pick and roll...real tough call as Blake and DeAndre run it different?

Will PG TP9 of the Spurs Community be a factor in Game 3?

Jamal Crawford biggest piece off Clipper Bench...

Patty Mills biggest piece off Spurs Bench...

Watch Dunc's Minutes as he was the only Spur in Game 2 with 40 plus minutes...

Four Clippers...CP3, Blake, DeAndre, and Matt all logged more than 40 minutes in game 2 and now we get less than a 48 hour turnaround with travel for both teams...

The Rockets have had the formula and surprisingly enough have been dominating the PG match up with former Mavs Star "Jet" Terry doing what he does...taking off from the Tarmac and Arc! The Mavs now without Rondo (Back) and Parsons (Knee) gone for the season will have to give everything they have from here on out.

Where is Devin Harris the former Mavs lottery pick PG as he has to be a factor. Back up PG JJ Barea is solid on that 2nd unit as Dallas needs a 3rd wheel to go with DIRK-ilicous and "Mississippi Lightning "Monta" to get back in the series!

The Raptors guards with 2013-14 All-Star DeMar DeRozan, 2014-15 All-Star PG Kyle Lowry, and 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year Lou WIlliams is getting outplayed by the "Real Deal" Bradley Beal and 2014-15 All-Star PG Wall-Star dba John Wall working both the Raptors and Wall's Wings and Burgers.

This cannot happen as the Raptors have a decided advantage in the front court with "Air Poland" Marcin Gortat and Brasil Hoops Royalty Ne Ne Hilario. Lithuanian Jonas Valanciunas has to play bigger and Amir Johnson needs to join him and become some sort of Transformer.

Game 3 will come down to the Raptors minimizing turnovers, shooting at least 40% from the arc, and playing with some "Valentine" (Heart) and nothing else. #WeTheNorth lead man Dwayne Casey is a Defensive mind and the Raptors Collapse has unfortunately been on that end.    

Delicious Match Up

Kyle & DeMar and & Lou-Will vs Wall-Star & Bradley

Bluedude Sportstalk SPORTS SHORTS Take 209..."STARKvegas" lands @IAmMalikNewman rolling with THREE-STRIPES...WINSTON or MARIOTA as its not even close? #MalikNewmanBiz #FamousJameisVsMariota #ItsABucsLifeYourCall!

Ok I told you a few days ago I was hearing Top 5 Class of 2015 Combo Guard Malik Newman was choosing between Kentucky and Mississippi State and he was leaning to State. Well Mr. Newman committed to "Starkvegas" today as it came down to two key decisions.

Newman knows the next level is fast-becoming a Combo Guard league with Guards who can shoot it from deep, get to the rim, and mid-range and of course pass 4th, 5th or six! Newman with Tyler Ulis at UK and 2015 5-Star PG Isaiah Briscoe already signed he wasn't going to be given the reigns at the PG with Ulis there already and Briscoe playing thee and off Ulis as well.

At "Starkvegas" he will be given "Carte Blanche" to do what he wants to do and there was a reason Ben Howland was hired as he is high-profile that could land Newman and other elite Mississippi Prospects.

Secondly it was Nike vs Adidas and Three Stripes probably went all out as Nike strikes once and does not negotiate. Yes figure that out I know what's going on regardless of what you hear believe that!

Moving to that Jameis Winston vs Marcus Mariota Debate it isn't even close. Winston is a proven pocket-passer behind center making his progressions (Reads) from day 1 dropping back. I get all that Marcus Mariota's Character is off the charts and in a perfect world we would love a QB that is elite on the next level and id perfect off the field.

Now having said all of that I am not touching a Spread-Option Offense QB in College as its been proven that really doesn't work. Isn't Mariota Geno Smith as he ran a similar offense in Morgantown? "Pocket Hercules" Mo Jones-Drew was recently quoted as saying, "Mariota is Blaine Gabbert"...he might not be Gabbert playing but he is in that area or block.

Tampa Bay your on the clock and your pick will be "Famous Jameis" before Rodger can put you on the clock. The Tennessee Titans are the real #1 as they really have to think what direction they will be going if Mariota is on the board or do they trade out?

Look "Weekend Benders" at Bluedude Sportstalk doesn't get any hitter than this as all of a sudden the New York Metropolitans have started to head north in the NL East in a big way. Is it the Matt Harvey effect or is it the Mets have went the Farmhand Route and the "Fruits of that Labor" is starting to bloom...or both? The Amazins' come in on a 11-game win streak as the "Murder's Row" Bombers might have trouble slowing these Mets down.

The New York Yankees come in 9-7 and for April you would say that is average. Then you throw in they are tied for 1st in the AL East with the Carmines and Blue Birds you say let's go Bombers! This makes for interesting series from the standpoint of all that Blue and Orange at Yankee Stadium feeling they have a decided edge on the diamond.

#Amazins...First Baseman Lucas Duda at .351 with 9 RBI has been the leader at the dish for the Mets but they have been getting production from everyone and playing 162 that is a real good sign with their pitching!

#Bombers...Both OF CF Jacoby Ellsbury and LF Brett Gardner have combined for 24 runs and 30 hits out of 105 appearances at the dish. They are setting that table fort eh "Pinstripes" and now they just need those 3-4-5 hitters to start raking!

Enjoy Gotham City Hardball Followers this should be a real good battle as the Yanks try to stop that 11-game win streak by the Metropolitans...
