Lakers take lead 3-1 in NBA Finals

Anthony Davis punched his chest in celebration. LeBron James let out a huge scream. The Los Angeles Lakers are on the cusp of what they want most — the franchise’s first championship in 10 years. Davis’ 3-pointer with 39.5 seconds left was the backbreaker, James ended with 28 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists, and the Lakers beat the Miami Heat 102-96 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. The Lakers lead 3-1 and can earn the title when the series resumes Friday. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 15 and Danny Green added 10 for the Lakers, who didn’t […]

Lakers look to retake control in Game 4 vs. Nuggets

The Los Angeles Lakers seek to take another commanding lead while the Denver Nuggets try to avoid another huge hole when the clubs meet in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals on Thursday night at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando. The third-seeded Nuggets got back into familiar territory — a 2-1 series deficit — when they held off a late Lakers rally for a 114-106 triumph in Game 3 on Tuesday night. They have lost Game 4 in each of their first two series versus Utah and the Los Angeles Clippers, however, to fall behind […]

Heat win again, lead series 2-0 against Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo sat on the bench in disbelief as Jimmy Butler sank a pair of free throws with an empty lane and no time on the clock Wednesday night. Just moments earlier, the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat were knotted at 114 after Khris Middleton sank all three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point attempt. It set up a wild finish, one that saw Antetokounmpo foul Butler after the ball had left his hands — a call confirmed by review — and permitted the Heat to walk off with a triumph in just the third NBA playoff game ever to end on game-winning, buzzer-beating free throws, according […]

Rockets vs. Thunder game 7

The story of the Thunder’s season has been their clutch play and it was on full display in Game 6. Paul scored 15 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter and made all the necessary plays to keep Oklahoma City’s campaign alive. Down six with 4:19 to go, Paul made back-to-back step-back 3s to tie the game. Given the amount of time left, if he misses just one of those shots it’s likely that Oklahoma City loses. Instead, a six-point deficit turned into another clutch victory, which is far from a surprise for a team that was 30-15 in […]

Blazers defeat Lakers in Game 1

After sinking a deep 3-pointer midway through the final quarter, Damian Lillard did a little dance and teammate Jusuf Nurkic pointed to his wrist. This was Dame Time, playoff edition. “Every game since we’ve been here has been a playoff game. So that prepared us for a game like this,” Lillard said. “It’s only one win. I’m happy to be here competing in the playoffs again, but we’ve got to move on to the next one.” Lillard had 34 points and the Portland Trail Blazers spoiled LeBron James’ first playoff appearance for the Los Angeles Lakers with a 100-93 triumph on Tuesday night in Game 1 of […]

Spurs keep playoff hopes alive with victory over Rockets

The Spurs aren’t out of it yet. Keldon Johnson had 24 points and 11 rebounds, and San Antonio kept alive its opportunities of becoming the first team in NBA history to make 23 consecutive playoff appearances with a 123-105 triumph over the Houston Rockets on Tuesday. San Antonio has won three consecutive and five out of seven since arriving in the Florida bubble. DeMar DeRozan added 23 points. Jakob Poeltl finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds. A total of seven Spurs reached double figures. Johnson said his mindset since the season restarted has been to fill in whatever role is asked of him. ”Whether it’s hustling, running […]

CP3 leads Thunder’s rout of cold-shooting Lakers

Chris Paul had 21 points, seven rebounds and six assists in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s 105-86 triumph over the poor-shooting Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night. Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points and Steven Adams had 18 for the Thunder (42-25), who never trailed in their first victory over the Lakers in four meetings this campaign. Oklahoma City pulled even with Houston for the fifth seed in the Western Conference playoff picture with five games left. The 86 points were the fewest by the Lakers — and by a Thunder opponent — this season. “We just tried to stick to the […]

Spurs edge Grizzlies and move into 9th place in West

DeMar DeRozan made two free throws with a second to play, giving the San Antonio Spurs a 108-106 triumph over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday that moved them into ninth place in the Western Conference. The Spurs built an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter but needed a bunch of big plays down the stretch from DeRozan after the Grizzlies rallied. ”He’s a superstar in this league, one of the top players in this league,” the Grizzlies’ Ja Morant said. ”I feel like that’s a good job. I’m not surprised at all that he goes out and delivered for his team late in the game at all.” […]
