Last week during the Boston Celtics vs. the Charlotte Bobcats, Celtics star Paul Pierce claimed the #2 spot on the team’s career scoring list, knocking Celtics’ all-time favorite Larry Bird down to the #3 spot. Pierce went into the game only needing 9 points to tie Bird’s total of 21,791.
By halftime, Pierce already had seven points and his 3-pointer a few minutes into the third quarter sealed the deal. Pierce’s milestone was met with a standing ovation and an array of applause from the fans. An official announcement was made later in the game in which Pierce took center court, took a bow and blew kisses at the fans.
Pierce still has quite a ways to go if he’s gunning for the #1 spot which is currently held by John Havlicek with 26,395 points but nonetheless congrats are definitely in order. WAY TO GO Paul Pierce!!!
The 2010-2011 NBA season has finally come to an end and sitting on the throne as this year’s champs are the Dallas Mavericks. Going into Game 6 with a 3-2 advantage in the series, the Mavericks beat out the Miami Heat in 105-95 win to claim the crown. The win was a well-deserved one for vets Dirk Nowitzki who was also the Finals MVP, Jason Terry and most of all Jason Kidd who at 38 and 17 years in the league can at last retire a champ. In reference to losing to the Heat during the Finals back in 2006 Jason Terry says, “Tonight we got vindication.” Enough said…Congratulations to the Dallas Mavericks!
They’re five games into the series and it’s the Dallas Mavericks that have the upper hand. The Mavericks brought the series to 3-2 in Thursday night’s 112-103 win over the Miami Heat. The Mavericks just might close this thing out unless Miami brings the “heat“ when the two meet Sunday in Miami. Game time is at 8pm (ET) on ABC.
Will there be a Game 7????
As the days go by, the NBA is getting closer and closer to crowning its champion for the 2010-2011 men’s basketball season. The other day, we updated you with the standings midway through the Conference Finals. Well now that they’re over, here are the teams that will go head to head in the Finals.
Miami Heat vs. Dallas Mavericks
In an odd sort of fashion, both the Miami Heat and the Dallas Mavericks are making their first appearance in the NBA Finals since 2006 in which the Heat took home the crown. This time after beating out the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 4-1 series, the Mavericks claimed the Western Conference Championship will go for the gusto once again in earning the ultimate title. The Heat, this year’s Eastern Conference champions, earned their spot in the battle by eliminating the Chicago Bulls in a 4-1 series. The Finals series will kick-off Tuesday, May 31 in Miami at 9pm (ET) on ABC.
Who will you be rooting for?!?!?!?!?!
Now that they are midway through the NBA Playoff Conference Finals, here’s where each team stands.
Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat
As previously reported, this series began with the Bulls taking Game 1 with a 103-82 win over the Heat. Games 2 & 3 were owned by the Heat with 85-75 and 96-85 wins respectively over the Bulls. Going into Game 4 with a 2-1 advantage, the Heat will take on the Bulls at home once again Tuesday, May 24 at 8:30pm (ET) on TNT.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks
So far this has been another one of those tit for tat battles. The Mavericks took Game 1 with 121-112 win over the Thunder. Game 2 went to the Thunder with 106-100 win over the Mavericks with the Mavericks claiming Game 3 with a 93-87 win. We’ll see what happens after the two meet tonight in OKC at 9:00pm (ET) on ESPN.
Now that the upsets and surprises of the NBA Conference Semifinals are over, mouths are still dropped open and eyes are still bucked, here are the teams that are still standing and gunning for the crown.
Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat
After beating out the Atlanta Hawks in a 4-2 game series, the Chicago Bulls advanced to the Finals and now face the Miami Heat. The Heat beat the Boston Celtics in a 3-1 game series to earn their advance to the finals. In this series the Bulls have already took Game 1 in a 103-82 win over the Heat. Game 2 is Wednesday, May 18 at 8:30pm (ET) on TNT.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Dallas Mavericks
The Oklahoma City Thunder closed out their semifinals series and advanced to the finals with 105-90 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. They will face the Dallas Mavericks who swept the Los Angeles Lakers in the semifinals. Game 1 is Tuesday, May 17 on ESPN at 9pm (ET).
Just in case you haven’t been keeping up or fell a little behind, here’s a brief update as to where teams stand in this year’s NBA Conference Semifinals.
Atlanta Hawks vs. Chicago Bulls
The series started with the Hawks snagging the win in Game 1 while the Bulls snagged Games 2 & 3. In Sunday’s game though, the Hawks brought this series to 2-2 with a 100-88 win in overtime over the Bulls.
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Memphis Grizzlies
The Grizzlies are leading this series 2-1. These two teams seem to be going back and forth with alternating wins. They’ll meet again for Game 4, May 9th, in Memphis. Game time is at 9:30 pm (ET) on TNT.
Los Angeles Lakers vs. Dallas Mavericks
The results of this match-up may be a bummer for Lakers’ fans, but it was definitely pure joy for fans of the Mavericks. Simply put, the Mavericks stopped, dropped and rolled the Lakers right out of the playoffs in a 4-game sweep. The Mavericks closed the series out Sunday with a 122-86 win.
Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat
In this matchup, we think it’s safe to say that the Heat have been giving the Celtics a run for their money. With the Heat leading this series 2-1, it’s going to be interesting to see just what happens when the two face off in Game 4, May 9th in Boston. Game time is at 7 pm (ET) on TNT.

Well, Sunday nights’ games sealed the deal! This year’s contenders for the Super Bowl XLV Championship will be none other than the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Green Bay Packers.
The Steelers claimed the AFC championship and their spot to contend for the title with a 24-19 win against the New York Jets. The Packers secured their spot as well as the NFC Championship title in a 21-14 victory over the Chicago Bears.
The Steelers and the Packers will face-off February 6th @ the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX. Kick-off is @ 6:30 PM EST and will air live on FOX.
After winning their 89th consecutive game, surpassing the 88-game winning streak record of the 1971-1974 U.C.L.A. men’s basketball team and even going on to win 90, the ladies of UConn’s winning streak has been brought to a halt by the ladies of Stanford. Stanford shut the Huskies down in a 71-51 win Thursday night at home in the Maples Pavilion where for the last 52 games they have been unbeatable.
Never trailing behind, the Cardinals got an early jump on the Huskies gaining a quick 13-point lead and never looked back. “It’s a huge win, but it is December”, said Stanford forward, Kayla Pederson, “This instills confidence that we can beat any team.”

On Tuesday night the Cleveland Cavaliers won their eighth game in a row with a 106-82 win over the New Jersey Nets. I am sure this was the icing on the cake for forward LeBron James who had 15 points in the first quarter….becoming the youngest NBA player to reach 11,000 career points.
James’ 31 points and the Cav’s a third-quarter surge put them in command as they improved to 9-2. The Cav’s are not only a half a game behind the NBA champion Boston Celtics, who currently have the best record in the Eastern Conference.
“It’s good that we have that killer mentality early in the season,” James told reporters.
Way to go LeBron! Now we just need a championship.
The 18 year old, Michelle Wie, is one of the youngest and greatest female golfers in the game. But this past Saturday at the State Farm Classic, she cost herself thousands by making one fatal mistake. She forgot to sign her scorecard!
Wie sat red-eyed in front of reporters and photographers trying to explain the mistake. She says on Friday after her round by the 9th green tent where players go to sign their scorecards, she was chased down by volunteers who pointed out that she hadn’t signed. Although she returned to the tent and signed the scorecard, the volunteers say because she previously walked outside of the roped tent area with the scorecard unsigned, it was too late and the mistake was final. To add more insult to injury, it wasn’t until Saturday morning that the volunteers told Wie and the officials of the mistake…after she’d played her final round of golf.
Wie said she usually signs her scorecard immediately, and had no idea why she didn’t Friday. “Hopefully it won’t happen again,” she said.
The signature rule is at the heart of golf’s honor system. Golfers are held accountable to maintaining thier scorecards and making sure that officials attest the scorecard.
Wie’s disqualification resulted in her loss of possibly winning the top prize of $255,000.
