There Were A Lot Of Buzzer Beaters In the NBA Tonight

Look, the NBA season is too damn long. Even I, an NBA junkie that watches at least 200 games a year, can see that. Too many teams are tanking, too many teams are on energy crippling back-to-backs, and too many teams have injuries to fully showcase 82 games of high-quality basketball. Among the numerous proposals for… » 12/18/14 2:15am Thursday 2:15am

Panthers Beat Capitals In Longest Shootout In NHL History

The Panthers beat the Capitals 2-1 tonight, but to get the full two points they had to win the longest shootout in NHL history (The previous longest lasted 15 rounds). Through 19 shots each the shootout was tied 5-5, but on the 20th shot, Alex Ovechkin missed his while Nick Bjugstad made his (17:40 in the video… » 12/16/14 11:58pm Tuesday 11:58pm

The Cavs' Outlet Passes Are A Damn Good Time

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been in a nice little groove lately, following up that four-game losing streak in which they looked like a sluggish, boring basketball team with a 9-2 run. They kicked the crap out of the Charlotte Hornets last night, and even got around to playing some fun, free-wheeling basketball while… » 12/16/14 2:32pm Tuesday 2:32pm

Khris Middleton Beats Suns With Contested, Game-Winning Three

Down one to the Phoenix Suns with under four seconds remaining, Bucks forward Khris Middleton hit this contested game-winner to send the surprising Bucks to 13-12. The final minute of the game featured as good of basketball as you'll see, with the teams trading baskets and combining to hit six straight shots.… » 12/15/14 11:57pm Monday 11:57pm

Wizards Win On Bradley Beal Alley-Oop Layup With 0.8 Seconds Left

Bradley Beal still looks a bit off after missing the first three weeks of the season with a fractured wrist, but this is sure to raise his spirits. The Wizards entered the fourth quarter down eight to the Magic, but a furious rally led by John Wall tied the game on Rasual Butler's free throw with 16 seconds left.… » 12/10/14 9:54pm 12/10/14 9:54pm

Blake Griffin Was His Old Bad-Ass Self Last Night

One of the crappier things about the early part of this NBA season is that for much of it, Blake Griffin hasn't really looked like Blake Griffin. Too many Clippers games have seen Griffin floating around the perimeter, turning in uninspiring performances heavy on the mid-range jumpers and light on the dunks. But last… » 12/09/14 2:54pm 12/09/14 2:54pm

It's So Fun To Watch Kyrie Irving Make People Look Dumb

Last night's nationally televised game between the Cavalier and the Knicks was pretty stinky. 'Melo couldn't get a bucket, LeBron was still in "Hey, uh, what the hell is going on with LeBron?" mode, and the whole game had the feel of two middling Eastern conference teams blindly flailing at each other. But then there… » 12/05/14 10:09am 12/05/14 10:09am

John Wall Destroyed The Lakers Last Night

Kobe Bryant and Nick Young hit a bunch of fluky long jumpers in a row during the second quarter of the Lakers' game in DC last night; with around six minutes left in the half they led by 11 points, and if you saw the score (47-36) crawl across the bottom of your screen just then, you might've thought, Damn, they're… » 12/04/14 1:22pm 12/04/14 1:22pm

Monta Ellis's Game-Winning Buzzer-Beater Was Bananas

I think it's time to admit that there probably isn't another player in the NBA who is better at hitting reckless, off-balance buzzer-beaters than Monta Ellis. Almost two years after hitting a game-winner so absurd that Ellis himself had to flee from it, the Mavericks shooting guard once again did his thing against the… » 12/04/14 10:24am 12/04/14 10:24am

Video Evidence That We're All Just Living In J.J. Watt's World

This week's episode of Inside the NFL featured a mic'd up J.J. Watt stomping around, talking shit, and wreaking havoc during last Sunday's game against the Titans. These mic'd up segments are commonplace and usually on the boring side, but this one is worth watching from beginning to end simply because it's such a… » 12/03/14 5:29pm 12/03/14 5:29pm

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Learns Painful Lesson About Tackling Rob Gronkowski

Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is a rookie, and he still has many lessons to learn about how to survive in the NFL. He received an important bit of knowledge during Sunday's game against the Patriots, though: Unless you are, I don't know, J.J. Watt or the Incredible Hulk, don't ever try to tackle Rob Gronkowski… » 12/02/14 10:21am 12/02/14 10:21am
