On your mark, get set, go! Track meet, drag race, whatever analogy you like, the Western Conference finals between the top-seeded Golden State Warriors and second-seeded Houston Rockets should be played at a breakneck pace by a pair of teams who are attempting to change the paradigm of NBA offenses. During the regular season, the Warriors led the league in points per game, overall shooting and 3-point shooting. They were second in threes made and scored at least 110 points 40 times,
So far, there have been no shocking upsets in the NBA playoffs. The only home team that lost was Toronto, in overtime. That trend should continue tonight.
There are only two games tonight, and just one of the four teams involved is truly desperate for a victory. We’re going to be homers, as both visitors played on Wednesday then had to travel. Also, they are less focused on winning tonight than keeping players healthy for the upcoming playoffs.
Stephen Curry has become a megastar in the NBA because there is seemingly nothing he can’t do on the court if it is skill-related.

The Golden State Warriors, who have been buried behind the greatness of many teams in the Pacific Division — the Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers and Seattle SuperSonics (both previously members of the Pacific Division), even the historically bad Los Angeles Clippers in recent years — are
Social media is a great place for the fans to interact with and better get to know the celebrities and athletes that they follow. Stars usually share some of what they have going on in their lives on social media, giving the public a window into their lives. Sometimes that window becomes a door when they choose to take questions on social media. Generally, when athletes and celebrities do Q&As on social media, it is interesting to follow along to see
We were all over the DraftKings leaderboard on Monday with scores in the 320 range. Many nights, that would have been extremely profitable, but James Harden (and his whopping 75.25 FPTS) was owned on 84.4% of teams, which means the big prizes depended on the supporting casts.
As strange as this sounds, the Golden State Warriors will limp into the extended All-Star break. You’d never know from looking at their overall record and it’s unclear what the issue is exactly, but the best team in the NBA has been struggling mightily in recent weeks. The execution on the offensive end has been sloppy, the shooting has come and gone (mostly gone) and the energy level has dropped significantly – at least compared to what we’ve become accustomed to
