NBA Futures - Northwest Division: Utah Sinking Big Time

+

The Utah Jazz have been one of the most consistent franchises in the NBA, but they are now in full rebuilding mode after some playoff flops. That means there will be a new team at the top of the Northwest Division, where the Jazz have been at the end of the last two seasons. Denver is the most obvious team to fill the void but Minnesota is making a play for the top too. Oklahoma City is still lost in the wilderness with all of its young players and draft capital. Top pick Chet Holmgren is out for the season and top player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable for the opener. There does not appear to be much on-court drama expected in the Northwest Division this season. Let's see where the best values are.

Running out of gas: 10 Takeaways from Celtics-Warriors NBA Finals Game 5 Fans

+

1. I make a solid attempt to make the Takeaways unoriginal. They aren't about me; they are about the game. The objective is to let you know what I saw, yet to keep them as deadpan as could be expected. Off the top: I'm likely going to bomb you in that objective today. Perhaps this is on the grounds that the Boston Celtics have played 105 games and there is definitely not a ton passed on to say that is new or hasn't been said. Large numbers of the Celtics players appear to be exhausted, and honestly, I think your essayist here is as well. This is the longest season any of these players have at any point experienced. It's been near constant since the air pocket in 2020. Abbreviated, turbulent offseasons followed by smaller, COVID-influenced normal seasons. At the point when Jayson Tatum threw up an airball in the final quarter, I moaned in irritation, as presumably most everybody understanding this. Afterward, during postgame, I shared with myself "Tatum looks drained." In the 2020 air pocket, Tatum played an association driving 40.6 minutes per game in the end of the season games. The last two ordinary seasons, he's set and reset a vocation high in minutes per game. In these end of the season games, Tatum is at 41 minutes for each game in 23 games.

A Look at the History of Jim Thorpe and Native Americans in Football

+

Native Americans have made several important contributions to NFL history. In fact, one of the first athletes that helped shape the foundation of American football was a Native American named Jim Thorpe. Thorpe's athleticism changed the way the game was viewed in the early 1900s. He was also an Olympic gold medalist and professional baseball player.

Jaylen Brown jokes about Grant Williams' record-setting Game 7 performance, says we should 'call him Grant Curry now'

+

Boston Celtics forward Grant Williams was the critical X-factor for the Celtics in the club’s series-clinching Game 7 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday afternoon. His 18 3-point attempts are a record for an NBA Game 7, and his 7 made shots from deep ties a record set by a particular Golden State Warriors legend. As his teammate Jaylen Brown said, "call him Grant Curry now." Williams went a sizzling 7-of-18 from 3-point range, a huge lift for a Boston team that held the Bucks to just 12.1% from deep. The former Tennessee player led all Celtics scorers with 27 points, a career high and not the only record set. The Bucks dared Boston to shoot all series, especially the Celtics’ role players. Early in Game 7, Williams was getting clean looks from deep. It took a little bit, but he soon dialed in. Watch any NFL Game live online for free and in HD.

NBA Twitter Mocks Old Nets Takes After Celtics’ Sweep

+

The Nets were eliminated from the playoffs in a first-round sweep Monday night, and NBA Twitter made sure to have big fun at their expense. A 116–112 Game 4 loss to the Celtics spelled the end of Brooklyn’s season and a postseason that fell far below preseason hopes and expectations. At the forefront of that disappointment—and the social media jokes—are Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the star leaders of a club many thought could go as far as the NBA Finals. In fact, many of those hot takes, like almost everything on the internet, can be found with a little bit of research.
