5 NBA Playoff Series We Know You Want To See

Paul George, LeBron James

A lot can happen in those seven games. It can make or break a franchise, sending one into the vaults of the elite and the other into a downward spiral that may result in the breakup of the team.

The Dubs got their ninth victory in a row, 112-95, and Curry’s 14 points and 10 assists were a big reason why. But during the third quarter, the ball slipped out of Curry’s grasp as he was driving to the rim. Thankfully, it glanced off the backboard and into the awaiting hands of Andrew Bogut, transforming a turnover into the perfect alley-opp off the glass. Read More »

Andre Drummond, Tyreke Evans

Defense wins championships. The best offense is a good defense. Every basketball player and fan has heard those words at one point or another. Those phrases have stood the test of time because they remain true.

RoyHibbert

The NBA has evolved into an athletic, perimeter-heavy league. While this type of emphasis can excite the audience with spectacular plays, strong froncourts are still the belly of the beast for many teams.

RoyHibbert

All stats from games prior to Friday

Even when sample sizes are small and records give no indication of anything worthwhile, the first week or two of the NBA season can still show audiences which teams are contenders and which are merely pretending.
