Heat fall short in last seconds of game 4

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 5:12 pm

Of course the Heat had a chance to tie the game agaisnt the Sixers and they miss the shot with just seconds left. On Sunday it was Lebron who had his shot blocked with 3 seconds left and had the chance to tie the game at 84 and possibly send it into overtime. Again the Heat are the worst team in the league when it comes to shooting when tied or down 3 or fewer with less than 10 seconds remaining. They are one 1-19 in that area with the Raptors and the Kings behind them with 2-16. The Sixers and the Heat play game 5 in Miami on Wednesday. Maybe the Heat will be up with only seconds remaining so they won’t have to depend on a last minute shot to win a game.

Celtics only team to sweep

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 4:21 pm

The Boston Celtics swept the New York Knicks Sunday night at Madison Square Garden in New York. Rajon Rondo had 21 points and 12 assists and Kevin Garnett had 26 points and 10 rebounds. This series was supposed to be one of the more exciting playoff series but the Celtics had other plans. They were up by 23 at one points at one point and ended up beating the Knicks 101-89. The last two times the Celtics swept a team in a seven game series, they won the NBA title.

UConn/Butler Championship Game

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 10:25 pm

Some say this was one of the ugliest men’s college basketball championship game ever. UConn came out with the win beating Butler 53-41. UConn only scored 19 in the first half and Butler only scored 19 in the second half, but only scored 22 in the first. Matt Howard, the starting forward for Butler, played 37 minutes and only made one field goal and one three pointer and he averages 16.4 points per game. Shelvin Mack scored 13 points, only Butler player to score in double digits. Neither teams shots were falling and was looking as if the teams were not going to score 40 points. Yet, UConn came out with the win and Kemba Walker was the most valuable player. What did you guys think of the game?

Jereme Richmond declares for the NBA Draft

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 8:42 pm

Freshman Jereme Richmond from the University of Illinois said today that he has declared for the NBA Draft and will not return back to school. He averaged 7.6 points per game and 5.0 rebounds per game. He sat out the two NCAA games for Illinois for violating a team rule and has had a rocky season with the team, coaches, and staff. A lot of people think this is a very bad decision and that he will not do well in the NBA and that he needs to mature more. I think people don’t know the full story and may not realize this is probably the best thing for him and the school.

Butler back to the Title Game

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 8:05 pm

Saturday evening a game of an 8 seed vs. an 11 seed took place, pretty much the Cinderalla’s of the tournament. 8 seeded Butler was looking to return to the title game and 11 seeded VCU was looking to take its school to its first NCAA championship game. Butler was just the better team. VCU missed a lot of open shots and free throws. Butler also out rebounded VCU 48-32. So Butler will play UCONN in the title game on Monday night and maybe this time they can come away with the championship trophy, but I think Kemba and UCONN will be the NCAA Champions this year.

Knicks end six game losing streak

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 10:32 am

Monday night Carmelo had 39 points in an overtime win against Orlando. Knicks had lost last 9 of 10 games until last night when they won a game Carmelo called an “almost must win.” The Knicks are third in the Atlantic Standings and seventh in the Eastern Conference. They play the Nets on Wednesday who have lost their last 6 of 7 games.

VCU in the Final Four

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 5:51 pm

Who would have thought that VCU an 11 seed would be in the Final Four? They were a bubble team to begin with, Dickie V and Jay Bilas went on and on how they shouldn’t have made it, then they were even a play in game and are now in the FINAL FOUR. They crushed Georgetown and Purdue, barely beat FSU, and then beat Kansas, a number one seed. Now they play Butler in Houston, do you think they can win it all?

Heat lose 4th straight game

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 10:08 pm

The Heat lost another game after being up by 12 late in the first half against the Bulls. The Heat lost to Orlando on Thursday by 3 points after being up by 24 in the third quarter. People have been saying the Heat can’t finish games and their last couple of games have proven this to be true. The last time the Heat lost 4 straight was January 18.

Iowa upsets #6 Purdue

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 4:33 pm

I couldn’t believe Purdue lost to Iowa yesterday. They could have shared the Big Ten title with Ohio State. This is Iowa’s first win against a ranked opponent since 2008. Purdue is second in the Big Ten standings and will most likely play either Penn State or Iowa on Friday in their first game of the Big Ten tournament.

St. John’s on fire

Filed under: Uncategorized — mbdavis7 @ 10:12 pm

St. Johns beat 15 ranked Villanova on Saturday in Philadelphia. St. Johns on a six game winning streak beat Villanova 81-68 and is their sixth ranked opponent they beat this season. This win also proves that they don’t need to be in the Garden to grab a win against a ranked opponent.
