If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 14

After another week, the drama is picking up in some areas. The 76ers have slid clear out of the division lead. The Knicks are out Amar’e Stoudemire and Jeremy Lin, but have a decent lead on the last spot, for now. The Lakers are running into a mini tough patch, and the Clippers are making […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 13

March is coming to an end, and it’s time for some tactical maneuvering. Teams that could use some help will be looking for some help via bought out free agents and the D-League. San Antonio already made a big move signing Boris Diaw after his buyout by Charlotte. Ryan Hollins was brought on by the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 12

There’s already only 1/3 of the season remaining, and there’s no shortage of entertainment. There are lots of close races, including divisions and the final playoff spots. There hasn’t been much movement in the seeding, though, except for the Lakers rising up and putting some room between them and the Clippers. And now that the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 11

After another week of NBA action, the playoff spots are starting to become solidified, but who gets what is still much less concrete (especially in the West). The Bulls and Thunder still lead the way, though the Heat aren’t exactly exiting gracefully. The Celtics and Knicks continue to disappoint, while the Rockets and Spurs continue […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 10

Just now we’re reaching the 10-week mark of the season, and it’s already more than halfway through. The Bulls, Heat and Thunder continue to be the teams to beat, while the lower half of the brackets are fighting to avoid them (though they have made great progress to secure a spot to begin with). The […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 9

It’s All-Star Weekend, and we’re now halfway through an abbreviated season. The Heat, Bulls and Thunder all continue to be on top, while other predicted contenders are continuing to bring up the rear and middle of the brackets. Better things were expected from Boston and New York, but that’s where they are. The race for […]

Celtics Report Card: Forgetting Football Ever Existed

After going 4-0 last week, the Boston Celtics were already potentially poised to put up some straight A’s. They had their revenge (93-90 over the Cleveland Cavaliers), wiped out the dinosaurs (a 36-point drubbing of the Toronto Raptors), got gritty in MSG (beating the New York Knicks 91-89), and proved themselves against a younger, more […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 4

A month into the season, and things are still going roughly for playoff hopefuls such as Boston and Dallas. Teams like the Clippers and 76ers are taking advantage of that. But a lot of powerful teams are still holding sway at the top of the conferences, and they’re continuing to make things tough on everyone […]

Tony Allen’s Grizzly New Haircut: A Brief Playoff ‘Hair Don’t’

I’ve heard of a playoff beard, but this is just ridiculous. Former Celtics guard Tony Allen, now a member of the Memphis Grizzlies, decided he’s show his allegiance to his team when he walked into the barbershop. Allen, clearly lacking good judgment, decided to get a haircut with his team logo trimmed into the back […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 23

Just one more week left until the playoff situation is officially known, and once again, the Celtics find themselves just trying to get healthy. And the Spurs’ former stranglehold on the #1 seed is weakened, but it may be too little too late for anyone to catch them. Five of the six divisions are locked […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 22

Just two more weeks to go and we’ll know who makes it into the playoffs. Nine of 16 spots are punched so far, including three of the six divisions. Some of the top teams are having pretty big struggles, and others are taking advantage. Memphis is building a little bit of space out west, while […]

Powe, Tony Allen Return To Help Grizzlies Top Celtics

Entering Wednesday night’s contest, the Bulls held a half game lead over the Celtics for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Celts, therefore, needed a win to tie things up, but either way, the last 12 games of the season should be really interesting. Paul Pierce did all he could for the good […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 21

Just a few more weeks left. The Lakers, Celtics and Bulls have clinched their divisions, while the Heat, Magic, Spurs and Mavericks have all clinched playoff spots. There’s a good amount of room between all #8s and #9s, but nothing’s guaranteed there just yet. There are four teams in the West and five in the […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 20

20 weeks are gone, and while the Spurs are riding high, the Celtics now have to resort to a tiebreaker against Chicago to hold the top spot in the East. And don’t listen to Chicago or Doc Rivers; getting the top seed means a lot. The bottom of the East also has a tie to […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – NBA Week 19

Just over a month remains in the season, and the Miami Heat got the highest ever rating on SportsCenter’s panic meter (9.99). The Lakers are on a roll, and Chicago has quietly positioned themselves as a legitimate contender, just 2.5 games out of the East’s lead. Each half of the bracket is starting to pull […]
