It Hurts To Watch The Cavs Like This It Hurts To Watch The Cavs Like This

LeBron James looked exhausted. Jordan Clarkson was tasked with running the offense on far too many possessions. The Celtics’ rotation of hyped-up young dudes absolutely hounded the Cavs to death on defense. Watching the best player in the world trying to keep his team from going down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference…

Milwaukee Police Release Video Of Bucks' Sterling Brown Being Tackled And Tased For No Reason Milwaukee Police Release Video Of Bucks' Sterling Brown Being Tackled And Tased For No Reason

Today the Milwaukee Police Department released the Sterling Brown arrest video, which confirms that Brown was not “combative” as was initially reported. You can find the 30-minute piece of body-cam footage below. One of the cops uses a taser on the Milwaukee Bucks player just after the 8:00 mark.

A People's History Of Bill Simmons Making Up Corny Things For Boston Fans To Chant A People's History Of Bill Simmons Making Up Corny Things For Boston Fans To Chant

There are any number of reasons why it’s easy to goof on Bill Simmons, and all of them are honestly pretty solid. Many of these have to do with the way he acts—grandiose and aggrieved and prickly-petty and, now that he’s ascended to demi-mogul status, prone to dilatory rich-guy extemporizing on The Future Of Apps.…

The Warriors Have Been Infected By Houston's Brain Worms And It's Ruining The West Finals The Warriors Have Been Infected By Houston's Brain Worms And It's Ruining The West Finals

Okay, yes, goddammit yes, I was wrong, the Houston Rockets, who tied the Western Conference Finals at two games apiece last night in Oakland, have a chance to win the series. A frighteningly strong one, if like me you break out in hives at the prospect of a Larry O’Brien trophy consecrating into canonical Championship…

The Rockets Refused To Die And Tied The Series The Rockets Refused To Die And Tied The Series

Despite some early hiccups and, um, premature pronouncements of doom, the Rockets held a 53-46 lead going into halftime in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors. For the most optimistic of Rockets fans, that advantage might’ve been enough to nervously hope for an even series. Everyone else was…

The Rockets Are Short-Circuiting

One of the coldest, most ruthlessly efficient scorers in the NBA froze up on a wide-open three that Draymond Green was cool to let him have. P.J. Tucker eventually missed his own three to end the possession, but if you’re wondering how badly the Warriors own James Harden and the Rockets right now, here’s your answer:

Milwaukee's Mayor And Cops Are Already Apologetic About The Forthcoming Sterling Brown Arrest Video Milwaukee's Mayor And Cops Are Already Apologetic About The Forthcoming Sterling Brown Arrest Video

The video footage of Bucks guard Sterling Brown’s arrest is set to be released this week, and judging by how Milwaukee authorities are scrambling to do damage control, it sure seems like it’ll tell a very different story from the one police first told. Brown was arrested on Jan. 26 for resisting arrest after officers…

I Ask You Once Again: How Are The Cavs Like This? I Ask You Once Again: How Are The Cavs Like This?

What’s going on here? Just what the heck is this?

LeBron James Can Make Scoring 44 Points Look Ordinary LeBron James Can Make Scoring 44 Points Look Ordinary

Probably the highest praise to give LeBron James is that his 44-point game tonight wasn’t even all that exhilarating, particularly when it didn’t come packaged with quite as many boards and assists (five and three) as his previous five 40-point outings this postseason. The Cavaliers’ 111-102 defeat of the Celtics to…

God Help Me, I'm Rooting For The Warriors Now God Help Me, I'm Rooting For The Warriors Now

The bleak doom of all good things in this terrible psycho-capitalist hell-society we have made is to be processed and metabolized into an inert clot of blind, gray, mindless nano-goo by precisely the kind of antiseptic, hyper-rational, ahuman actuarial math on display here:

You Don't Have To Get Cute With The Rockets You Don't Have To Get Cute With The Rockets

The Rockets are coming after Steph Curry. Through the first three games of their series against they Warriors, they have been committed to one idea that they seem to think will give them the best chance to win: use a pick to switch Curry onto the ballhandler on every offensive possession, and then wait for James…

You Have To Love A Big Steph Curry Game  You Have To Love A Big Steph Curry Game 

The start of Steph Curry’s Game 3 went much like his Game 1 and Game 2, and by the end of the first half he was 3-of-11 from the field. At that point, Curry was shooting a combined 3-of-20 from three-point range for the series, and it was starting to look like the takeover everyone had been waiting for was never…

LeBron In Full Must-Win Mode Is An Unsolvable Problem LeBron In Full Must-Win Mode Is An Unsolvable Problem

The Cavs opened Game 3 with a huge 22-6 run, and that was more or less that. This was not a case of the winning team grabbing an early lead behind a fluky start and nursing it cautiously until the final buzzer—the Cavs were forceful and decisive early, and did some cool and different things to challenge Boston’s…

Elfrid Payton's Hair Has Been Laid To Rest Elfrid Payton's Hair Has Been Laid To Rest

Through all those tough years in Orlando to his current stint in Phoenix, the most notable feature of Elfrid Payton’s game has been his head. Not his “basketball IQ” or his “clutch mentality”—just that majestic drooping frond on top. Every season it protruded further past the point guard’s forehead. It looked like it…

In The Future, We Will All Gamble Constantly In The Future, We Will All Gamble Constantly

The NBA Playoffs should be at something like their apex right now, and in the least entertaining possible sense they may well be. There are four notionally entertaining teams left, and they have combined through four games for maybe three entertaining quarters. The league’s biggest and most brilliant stars are still…

DeMarcus Cousins Unfollowed The Pelicans On Instagram "Cause I'm Grown" DeMarcus Cousins Unfollowed The Pelicans On Instagram "Cause I'm Grown"

DeMarcus Cousins is in tricky, unpredictable territory now after tearing his Achilles tendon just as the Pelicans were easing into a groove. Without him, they sped up and swept the Blazers. This summer Boogie hits unrestricted free agency while recovering from an injury has sapped many previous stars of their juice.…

Chris Paul's Yo-Yo Dribble Never Gets Old Chris Paul's Yo-Yo Dribble Never Gets Old

Last night, the Houston Rockets blew past the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals by getting a little more lively on offense and moving the ball. That is cool and good for them, but let’s be honest: the best thing about the game was Chris Paul’s dribbling.

The Desperate Rockets Beat The Warriors, And It Was Actually Fun To Watch The Desperate Rockets Beat The Warriors, And It Was Actually Fun To Watch

The Rockets can pass! That’s the most stunning takeaway from their 127-105 win against the Warriors tonight, which evened the Western Conference Finals at one game apiece and introduced a prettier, more kinetic version of the Rockets than the team that won 65 games in the regular season. Game 2 saw Houston move away…
