A Video Of Kevin Garnett Yelling A Bunch Got Thon Maker Inspired To Start Kicking Ass In The Playoffs   A Video Of Kevin Garnett Yelling A Bunch Got Thon Maker Inspired To Start Kicking Ass In The Playoffs  

Stringy Bucks big man Thon Maker has come up huge for the Bucks in their surprisingly competitive and entertaining first-round series against the Celtics. Maker averaged just 4.8 points, 3.0 boards, and 0.7 blocks a game in the regular season, and he basically didn’t play through the series’ first two games in Boston.…

The Rockets Fine-Tuned Their Equation And Became Invincible  The Rockets Fine-Tuned Their Equation And Became Invincible 

The Houston Rockets led by one point, 50-49, at the end of the first half last night in Minnesota. So it’s not like they were in a crisis situation. But if a lead can be said to be an ugly and bad one, this qualified.

The Thunder Hit Rock Bottom, Where They Found A Gloating Mitt Romney The Thunder Hit Rock Bottom, Where They Found A Gloating Mitt Romney

If you want a tangible explanation for why the Oklahoma City Thunder are down 3-1 in their playoff series against the Jazz and seem destined for a first-round exit, take your pick: Rudy Gobert has effectively canceled out Russell Westbrook’s ability to drive to the hoop; Russell Westbrook has no jumper; it’s been six…

Report: Sports Anchor Booted From Warriors-Spurs Series After He Stole Steph Curry's Bodyguard's Jacket Report: Sports Anchor Booted From Warriors-Spurs Series After He Stole Steph Curry's Bodyguard's Jacket

Bay Area ABC7 sports anchor Mike Shumann was sent home from San Antonio and kept off the air for Sunday’s Warriors-Spurs game after he was caught stealing the jacket of the Golden State Warriors’ director of team security, according to The Athletic.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Baptized Al Horford And The Photos Were Beautiful Giannis Antetokounmpo Baptized Al Horford And The Photos Were Beautiful

Giannis Antetokounmpo laid waste to Al Horford with four minutes to go in Game 4 of Celtics-Bucks Sunday. It was devastating in real time, satisfying in slow-mo, and maybe at its most dramatic when slowed to a halt, thanks to Getty Images photographer Jonathan Daniel.

Giannis Antetokounmpo Can Hit A Game-Winner, Can't Get A Damn Table At Milwaukee Restaurant [Update] Giannis Antetokounmpo Can Hit A Game-Winner, Can't Get A Damn Table At Milwaukee Restaurant [Update]

Bucks star and smoothie fiend Giannis Antetokounmpo had 27 points, including the game-winning bucket with five seconds left, in Sunday’s Game 4 104-102 home victory over the Celtics. And yet, this guy can’t find a table in the city he plays for.

Hoo Boy, Bucks-Celtics Is A Blast Hoo Boy, Bucks-Celtics Is A Blast

Man, this Bucks-Celtics series is a hell of a lot of fun. Game 1 was a bonkers overtime affair that featured an insane glut of ballsy shot-making in the final minute of regulation. Games 2 and 3 were mostly wipeouts, but Sunday’s Game 4 had another incredible fourth quarter that came right down to the final possession.

Grim And Gritty Ricky Rubio Has The Thunder On The Ropes Grim And Gritty Ricky Rubio Has The Thunder On The Ropes

It can be a little disorienting to remind yourself that grim and gritty Ricky Rubio, the veteran point guard of the Utah Jazz, has played exactly the same number of playoff games over the course of his NBA career as Donovan Mitchell has. Rubio, whose transformation from doe-eyed, baby-faced sidekick to leathery,…

All The Wizards Did Was Heat Up All The Wizards Did Was Heat Up

So the Washington Wizards will not be swept by the Toronto Raptors. Friday night the Wizards got hot from the floor, survived several instances of their players being crabby, runaway buttheads, and grabbed Game 3 on their home court. Marcin Gortat shaved his mohawk; John Wall cooled it with the turnovers; Markieff…

Humanoid soft-baked dough sculpture Glen “Big Baby” Davis is reportedly a suspect in an assault that took place in Hollywood this month, according to a report from TMZ:

The Pelicans Are Finally Doing It Alvin Gentry's Way The Pelicans Are Finally Doing It Alvin Gentry's Way

The New Orleans Pelicans have a chance to sweep the Portland Trail Blazers out of the playoffs when the teams meet Saturday evening. It’s fair to say not many saw this coming, although the result will uphold at least one generally held maxim—that the team with the best player on it has the inside track to winning an…

Bojan Bogdanovic Went Nuts And Buried The Cavs Bojan Bogdanovic Went Nuts And Buried The Cavs

LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers put their stamp on Game 3 early. The Cavs established a comfortable 57-40 halftime lead and looked more like the team that many expected to coast into a second-round series with the Raptors than the stuttering bunch that nearly lost both home games at the start of the first…

Bradley Beal Says Scott Brooks Apologized To Him For His Role In Beal's Dreadful Playoffs Bradley Beal Says Scott Brooks Apologized To Him For His Role In Beal's Dreadful Playoffs

Bradley Beal, like his team in general, is not having a good playoff series against the Toronto Raptors. Beal shot just 3-for-11 in Game 2, scoring just nine points and picking up four fouls en route to an atrocious plus-minus of -34 in 25 minutes. Overall, Beal is scoring 14 points per game and has only made three…

Goran Dragic Won't Let You Ignore Him Goran Dragic Won't Let You Ignore Him

That’s my guy. Looking like Crossfit Benedict Cumberbatch. Love to see this type of vigor.

Steven Adams Will Respect Your Anime Shoes  Steven Adams Will Respect Your Anime Shoes 

There’s probably nobody in the NBA more fun to interview than Steven Adams, who manages to be charming even when he’s quite pissed off, or being outright evasive. He always manages to shine brightest when the conversation turns to one of his favorite topics: anime.

Is Joel Embiid's Mask More Superhero Or Supervillain?   Is Joel Embiid's Mask More Superhero Or Supervillain?  

After missing a few weeks with a concussion and an orbital fracture, Joel Embiid is finally back on the floor for tonight’s Game 3 against the Heat—with a pretty sick mask, goggles included. Constructing the thing was apparently quite the project...

Someone Else On The Cavaliers Needs To Score, Too Someone Else On The Cavaliers Needs To Score, Too

If you caught LeBron James in just the right light during that first quarter, you could have seen the steam wisping off his damn bald spot. Playoff LeBron is here but probably much, much earlier than he’d intended on arriving, and as cranky as those circumstances would suggest.

Even A Hobbled Donovan Mitchell Won't Go Down Easily Even A Hobbled Donovan Mitchell Won't Go Down Easily

After bruising his foot in Game 1, Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell insisted that he’d suit up for Game 2, despite having to play through a personally unprecedented amount of pain to do so. He didn’t seem very limited in his second-ever playoff game when he got a steal and scored on the first possession of the game, then…
