Damian Lillard Rescued His Blazers From The Lowly Suns, And Also The Suns From The Blazers Damian Lillard Rescued His Blazers From The Lowly Suns, And Also The Suns From The Blazers

It is not an exaggeration to say that Damian Lillard’s heroics in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s Blazers-Suns tilt rescued both teams: the Blazers are smack in the middle of the West’s dense playoff pack; meanwhile the Suns, had they won, would’ve gone from having the worst win percentage in the NBA—prime…

Daniel Berger Is Out Here Hiking And Wading His Way Up The Leaderboard Daniel Berger Is Out Here Hiking And Wading His Way Up The Leaderboard

Daniel Berger is currently tied for 10th at the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I would like for you see the hilarious mess he made of the par-5 third hole today, so that you can appreciate with me the sheer unlikeliness of him saving par:

Nikola Jokic Is On A Hell Of A Tear Nikola Jokic Is On A Hell Of A Tear

The NBA’s Western Conference is a tangle: the third-seed Spurs are ahead of the 10th-seed Jazz by just 4.5 games; those Spurs have managed to win just three of their last 10 games, and while they’ve been swirling in rare drama having to do with Kawhi Leonard’s injury status, those Jazz have won nine of 10; the…

Steph Curry Is Funny

Here is a shot that Steph Curry made last night. These are the things about it that made me laugh:

David de Gea Is A Freak David de Gea Is A Freak

Manchester United did not deserve to draw Sevilla 0-0 on the road this afternoon, but the good thing about soccer is that the scarcity of goals produces all manner of undeserved results. United took just a single shot on goal and they never seemed to get their offense into a reasonably high gear, instead choosing to…

Fabio Fognini Pulls Off A Zany, Totally Accidental Trick Shot

Set point, nerves jangling, sweaty palms—it’s not all that uncommon for a player’s racquet to slip out of their hands on the followthrough of a serve under circumstances like these. It is, however, completely nuts for that racquet to then strike the court at such a precise angle so that it bounces neatly back to the…

The All-Star Game Was Worth It The All-Star Game Was Worth It

That was a hell of an All-Star game! It had highlights, it had drama, it had by-God competition, it had a genuinely memorable finish. It also had a lot to overcome, in order to salvage what was otherwise a really uneven, occasionally bizarre and baffling weekend of events. It delivered, and in the process redeemed all…

Dang, Bogdan Bogdanovic Can Really Let It Fly Dang, Bogdan Bogdanovic Can Really Let It Fly

Last night’s NBA Rising Stars Challenge was a laugher, and not even just for the usual reasons (no defense, sloppy passing, reckless shooting, general exhibition behavior): This time, the World team just kinda flattened the U.S. team, from start to finish, so that what is always a talent show masquerading as a contest…

Muay Thai Guy Destroys Other Muay Thai Guy With Impossible Head Kick Muay Thai Guy Destroys Other Muay Thai Guy With Impossible Head Kick

Earlier this month at Siam Warriors Superfights, an Irish Muay Thai event, Robby Drought defeated Mark Frazer in the first round by technical knockout. That doesn’t quite sum up how amazing it was.

This No-Look Drop Shot Is Hot Shit

Long-time Roger Federer victim Philipp Kohlschreiber just played an excellent match, earning two set points in the first set before dropping the tiebreak, then committing some untimely double-faults in his final service game to lose 7-6 (8), 7-5 in the second round at Rotterdam. Kohlschreiber spent the whole match…

Hafþór Björnsson Deadlifted 1,000 Pounds While His Rowdy Pals Went Wild Hafþór Björnsson Deadlifted 1,000 Pounds While His Rowdy Pals Went Wild

When we last checked in with strong man and Game of Thrones star Hafþór Björnsson, he was bent out of shape about possibly being screwed out of the World’s Strongest Man title. That loss only seems to have fueled his quest to become even larger and more powerful, because now he can deadlift 1,000 pounds.

Roger Federer Has Fully Dropped The Illusion Of Being Human

The 36-year-old even did the ceremonial net-cord hand-wave apology after, as if to say, “I am sorry that I took up this sport, which you play for an honest living, and play it like a glitchy video game.”

Kevin Garnett Met Some Contortionists And It Was Great TV

During last night’s NBA broadcast on TNT, Kevin Garnett’s Area 21 segment featured a performance by a squad of contortionists. Garnett, wearing his magical hood, was forced to stand there and provide commentary while the contortionists did their thing, and he did the best he could in what was probably an awkward…

Carl Hagelin Mindfucked A Goalie For An Easy Evgeni Malkin Score Carl Hagelin Mindfucked A Goalie For An Easy Evgeni Malkin Score

The Penguins are lighting the lamp on the Senators tonight, and Ottawa back-up goalie Mike Condon can barely figure out what’s going on. For Pittsburgh’s third goal of the game, Carl Hagelin took the puck behind the net and seemed like he was going to take it in the far corner on Condon’s left. Instead, the crafty…

Bucknell Wins In Regulation Despite Being Down Ten Points With Less Than 50 Seconds Left

Bucknell downed Colgate tonight at home in a stunning last-minute comeback that saw the Bison score 13 points in the final 50 seconds.

The Dunk Gods Giveth, The Dunk Gods Taketh Away The Dunk Gods Giveth, The Dunk Gods Taketh Away

Sunday’s big Cavs-Celtics tilt in Boston is not shaping up how you might’ve reasonably imagined: The Cavs, with four brand new guys making their first ever appearances in Cavs jerseys, are mostly giving the business to the Celtics. That business featured this highlight, when J.R. Smith smushed the bejeezus out of Aron…

Old Geezer Dirk Nowitzki Dunked Himself Onto The Injured List Old Geezer Dirk Nowitzki Dunked Himself Onto The Injured List

Old, old man Dirk Nowitzki had himself a bit of a throwback game against the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday night. In 24 minutes of action—just about all his body can handle, at this point—Nowitzki knocked home eight of 11 shot attempts, including all four of his looks from beyond the arc, to score 22 points and lead the…

Cruel Damian Lillard Needed Just 29 Minutes To Hang 50 Points On The Kings Cruel Damian Lillard Needed Just 29 Minutes To Hang 50 Points On The Kings

Damian Lillard went absolutely nuts on the Kings Friday night, in Sacramento, to the tune of 50 points on 26 shots attempts, in just 29 minutes. He didn’t score a single point in the fourth quarter, and didn’t need to, because the Kings are sad and awful, and also because the game was never close after Lillard ended…

Maybe Now The Cavs Can Just Let LeBron Cook? Maybe Now The Cavs Can Just Let LeBron Cook?

The Cavs did well at the trade deadline, shipping off several of their worst defensive players and returning a group of guys who seem better suited to playing alongside LeBron, for however long he’ll be around. LeBron himself said the changes “should be fun,” which probably means nothing but certainly is better…
