Text 27 Mar Heat-Pacers: The Aftermath

In what many are considering one of the most anticipated match of the season, The Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers played a close and intense game last night at Bankers’ Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Just from watching the game, you would’ve thought it was the Eastern Conference Finals already, but that was the atmosphere heading into what was a very memorable game. Roy Hibbert got off to a hot start, scoring 13 points in the first quarter, all the while giving Greg Oden two fouls right from the get go. In the second quarter, The Miami Heat started to turn the tables as Udonis Haslem guarded Hibbert, keeping him at bay on the offensive end, while Miami went on a scoring run for a 45-44 lead to end the first half. The second half was where the drama intensified. Roy Hibbert was hit by LeBron James' elbow, causing a scare for Pacers fans, but he returned back to the game, shooting free throws, but it was Lance Stephenson and Dwyane Wade's confrontations that were on full display as the two shooting guards exchanged hostile words to one another, resulting in Stephenson getting ejected from the game. Another thing to point out was the controversy surrounding Dwyane Wade and David West's 3 point shots. The referees pointed out that Wade was out of bounds as he attempted his 3 pointer, resulting in a turnover, where as West had traveled before hitting his. Though it went unchallenged, Heat coach Erik Spolestra should’ve not only called the refs and West on a travel, but also challenging whether or not Wade was out of bounds also. Another memorable moment was when George Hill missed two free throws that would’ve ended the game for Miami, as well as Chris Bosh's 3 point shot, and missed game winning shot. The Heat-Pacers game had a lot of memorable moments from Paul George's dunk to LeBron James' 38 point performance, which could give basketball fans a preview of what to expect in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat and Pacers square off one more time on April 11 at the American Airlines Arena in Miami. So for now, Indiana has a 2-1 lead in the regular season series, and they will face the Washington Wizards, while the Heat look to refocus against the Detroit Pistons. For homework, take a breather from the intensity and roller coaster ride that was the Heat-Pacers game, or (if you still want a basketball fix), watch the NBA on TNT for a doubleheader as the San Antonio Spurs, winners of the last 15 games, take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at 8, follow by the Dallas Mavericks taking on the Los Angeles Clippers. I’m Deron Butler, telling you that I may need some rest now, but I’ll do so watching more basketball. Keep it locked to I Got Next!

Text 26 Mar Heat vs. Pacers Preview

http://sas.suplitodomedia.com/articles_images/GamblersPalace/NBA-Playoffs-Picks.jpg

The Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers are two most dominant teams in the Eastern Conference, and two of the few stronger teams league-wide, However, in recent games, neither Miami or Indiana have shown any signs of dominance during the month of March. Despite this, Indiana and Miami still retain control of the Eastern Conference’s top spots, although heading into the playoffs, Miami would look to seize control of homecourt advantage from Indiana. With both teams tied at 1 game each in the regular season, the importance that tonight’s game in Indiana has is one that will dictate who will be the top team of the East, until their next game in April. The one thing Miami needs to be aware is Indiana’s big man rotation, and the overall effectiveness of Roy Hibbert, Lance Stephenson, and Paul George, who, despite slumping in points, can still be a major threat. To address Roy Hibbert’s dominating presence, Miami has been carefully training and surveying Greg Oden's performance all season long. Oden could be the key to shutting down Hibbert on defense, while Chris Bosh plays more of the offensive Center role. As for LeBron and Dwyane Wade, their main competition lies within how far can they keep up with George and Stephenson. Another question that should be asked is that if Indiana decides to play big, will Miami be willing to do the same as well? Sure, Indiana has Hibbert, David West, Luis Scola, and Ian Mahini, but how well can Miami’s Bosh, Oden, Chris “Birdman” Andersen, and Udonis Haslem play in that formation? Yes we’ve seen Miami combat against Indiana’s big man formation many times in the playoffs by playing the small ball, but in terms of big vs. big, the experience would have to go to Indiana, but then again, with Miami, anything is possible. For homework, tune in at 8 to watch the Miami Heat take on the Indiana Pacers on ESPN. I’m Deron Butler, telling you to keep it locked on I Got Next!

Text 9 Feb After two months of basketball

After two months of basketball, all I can say is one word: Epic. That is what I can describe the performances of Kevin Durant, Terrance Ross, and especially Carmelo Anthony. Durant went on a 30 plus point scoring streak that saw him defeat such teams as the Miami Heat and New York Knicks. Not to be outdone, Terrance Ross of the Toronto Raptors scored a season high 51 points, but it was Carmelo Anthony who dazzled Knicks fans in the Garden with a mind boggling 62 points against the Charlotte Bobcats. These feats have been has impressive as they are astounding to watch. Maybe the NBA should change their slogan from “BIG” to “EPIC” because that’s what basketball fans have been seeing from such stellar performances. Not to be outdone, the Phoenix Suns have become the surprise team of the NBA, placing sixth in the Western Conference standings. A few months back, I wouldn’t have guessed that the Suns would be in the top 8 standings in the West, but they have came through under the direction of Jeff Hornacek as head coach, and the backcourt duo of Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic, who is coming into his own, almost like a mirror of John Stockton and Steve Nash, who made his return to the Los Angeles Lakers in a match against the Minnesota Timberwolves. With a lot of woes in Lakerland, the return of Nash brings some form of comfort to Laker fans, who are without Kobe or Pau Gasol, who, according to rumors, could be dealt to the Phoenix Suns. This may not benefit the Lakers, but hopefully by the midseason trade having passed over, the Lakers will have to figure out what to do with the 7 foot Spaniard. Another team that has caught fire as of late are the Brooklyn Nets. They started the season abysmally, but later got their bearings underneath them with their new core talent of Jason Terry, Paul Pierce, and KG working well together with Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, and Andrei KirilenkoKyle Korver of the Atlanta Hawks continued his incredible 3 point streak to 118, which is amazing all by itself. Detroit Pistons president Joe Dumars has fired coach Maurice Cheeks after a dismal start for Detroit, who stand at 21-29 in the Central Division, and It should be also noted that the NBA All Star Game already announced its starters for both Eastern and Western Conference All Star teams: For the East, Kyrie Irving, Dwyane Wade, Paul George, Carmelo Anthony, and LeBron. For the West, Stephen Curry, Kobe, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, and Kevin Love. I was kinda shocked that Indiana’s Roy Hibbert and Houston’s Dwight Howard not getting selected to be starters for the All Star Game, however, New Orleans Hornets  Pelicans Center Anthony Davis will start in place of the injured Kobe, getting the hometown hero nod.

Here are the standings for the Eastern and Western Conferences.

Text 29 Dec 2 notes After One Month of Basketball

After one month of basketball, the NBA has seen its fair shares of spills, thrills, and chills…well, mainly the spills, with injuries being the key word as Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose, both of whom were returning from injury, were place back on the shelf after injuring themselves 6 games after their awaited returns for this season. With Kobe back out for 4 to 6 weeks, this leaves the Los Angeles Lakers in free fall mode, relying on Pau Gasol, Nick Young, Wesley Johnson, and Xavier Henry, whereas Chicago remains to stay strong with Carlos Boozer, Jimmy Butler, Joakim Noah, and Kirk Hinrich. Other NBA Stars dealing with injuries include Luol Deng (Achilles tendon), Al Horford (Pectoral muscle), Steve Nash (back) and recently Russell Westbrook (Knee injury) and LeBron James (Groin injury). With all the injury woes lingering around the NBA, most of the woes are aimed towards New York basketball fans as the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets, each have suffering win-loss records, especially with the acquired talent both teams have at their disposal. On the flip side, Portland, Indiana, Miami, Oklahoma City, and San Antonio all boasts great records heading into January. Other highlights included Rudy Gay being traded to the Sacramento Kings, to better help DeMarcus Cousins as a second option on offense, Kyle Korver of the Atlanta Hawks reaching a milestone of 100 games of making a three point shot, and the Minnesota Timberwolves reaching the .500 mark this season in a victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. Another note that should be mentioned is that All-Star ballots have already begun and so far, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Kevin Durant all lead votes for returning veterans. To vote for your players to head to New Orleans for the All-Star game, here is the link: http://allstarballot.nba.com

Black woman shot to death for asking for help in a white neighborhoodNovember 7, 2013
Last Saturday morning at around 2:30am 19-year-old Renisha McBride got into a car accident in Dearborn Heights, a predominately white Detroit suburb. Because her cell phone battery was dead, she went to nearby home for assistance. That might seem like the reasonable and understandable thing to do, but it was the biggest mistake of McBride’s short life.
The unnamed person who answered the door didn’t offer to help the stranded teen out, instead the Dearborn Heights resident fatally shot McBride in the head.
Weirdly, Dearborn Heights police initially told McBride’s family that her body was found dumped in another area of town, but they’ve since changed their story, saying she was shot in self-defense on the homeowner’s front porch. Naturally, Michigan is a Stand Your Ground state — sound familiar?
As Rania Khalek points out: Even if that’s the case, and there’s reason to believe it’s not, the shooter still failed to call 911 after shooting an unarmed woman in the head, instead leaving her their to die. Does that sound like the behavior of a law-abiding gunowner who made a tragic mistake?
No. No it does not.
Police have asked Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office for charges to be filed against the unnamed resident who shot McBride. We’ll see how well that pans out.
