Celtics Beat Trail Blazers On Sloppiest Game-Winner Of The Year

Down two to the Trail Blazers with under 10 seconds remaining, the Celtics were relying upon Jared Sullinger to get them a crucial basket. That should tell you all you need to know about how good they are, that Brad Stevens looked up and down his bench for his best option and settled upon Sullinger. The move didn't… » 1/23/15 12:49am 1/23/15 12:49am

Let's Laugh At The Sixers Playing Completely Hapless Defense

I've been watching this on loop for a good 10 minutes, and I just now noticed that while Damian Lillard is just hanging out, probably trying to figure out if he's somehow gained the ability to freeze time, Wes Matthews is also wide fucking open in the corner. Lillard could have said, "No, this wide-open three that my… » 11/25/14 12:26pm 11/25/14 12:26pm

Damian Lillard Going To The Rim Makes No Damn Sense

The timing is generally easier; spend enough years talking through NBA games and you'll get a feel for the cadence of a pick-and-roll, or how to ride out the crowd noise after a big play. But Harlan is great because when that timing gets thrown off and he's caught… » 5/13/14 10:17am 5/13/14 10:17am

Rockets Fans Go Through Emotional Wringer Of Parsons And Lillard Shots

Front-Row View Of Damian Lillard's Buzzer-Beater Is Awesome

This Vine is awesome. It's a court-level view of Damian Lillard curling around a screen, clapping for the ball, and sinking the game-winning buzzer-beater from behind the arc against Houston last night. Everything about it is perfect. The angle, the clapping, the shot, the buzzer and mostly, the crowd reaction. Be… » 5/03/14 10:17am 5/03/14 10:17am

For Real Though, We Need To Talk About Thomas Robinson's Block

I, like most basketball fans, have been thinking about last night's game between the Rockets and Blazers pretty much all day. But out of all the amazing shit that happened in that game—Wes Matthews torpedoing the ball and the win out of Patrick Beverley's hands; that brief stretch when Nic Batum, Damian Lillard, and… » 4/28/14 4:51pm 4/28/14 4:51pm
