The Celtics has been trailing for most of the game down by as much as double digit lead not until they fought back in the 3rd quarter to close the gap, but unable to sustain in the 4th quarter until the Heats shooting guard Dion Waiters made some clutch basket in the end game to keep the Celtics away from the game. 

Kyrie Irving leads the Celtics in scoring with 23 points, 1 rebounds and 3 assist but not enough to help his team to keep their winning streak.

Irving’s teammate Jalen Brown, who has been great for the Celtics in their past games added only 14 points and was fouled in the game, rookie Jayson Tatum continues to show his impressive performances as a rookie added 18 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assist while Al Horford was only limited to a single digit points with 7 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assist.

The Celtics loss, stop them from reaching the franchise best record of 18 – game winning streak during the era of the “Celtic’s Big Three” Kevin Garnet, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, despite the loss the Celtics remains the league’s best record with 16 wins and 3 loss, especially in the East, where the Celtics are 5 more wins against the 2nd and 3rd best record Detroit Piston and Toronto Raptors with 11 wins and 6 losses each and followed by the Cleveland Cavaliers at 4th place with 11 wins and 7 losses and currently holds the new longest winning streak in the league with 6 wins.

LeBron’s First Triple Double of the Season Came to a sorry loss against the Nets

NBA – Cleveland Cavaliers megastar LeBron James posted his first triple double of the 2017 – 2018 NBA Season after playing their 5th game assignment of this early season. James scores a game high of 29 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assist in a losing effort against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night July 25, 2017 (US TIME) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Finals Score Nets 112 – Cavs 107.

The Cavaliers loss puts them down 5th place in the East Standing with 3 wins and 2 loss and now currently tied with two other teams the Brooklyn Nets and the Detroit Piston.

In the game the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers mostly trailed the entire game down by as much as double digits and even went up as high of 14 points deficit in the 1st minute of the final quarter. But the defending Eastern Conference Champion has made a big run that finally regains the lead since the 1st quarter with half a quarter to go in the final quarter.

As the game near its end, both teams are trading basket with 3’s and exchanging leads, but the home team gets the better of the visiting team as they come with a win at home. 

The Cavaliers had their chances to steal the game after being down for almost the entire game, but the crucial missed free throws by LeBron James that could tie the game with only 7 seconds remaining and the touched down pass by Kevin Love to LeBron James that went into turnover with only 4 seconds to go caused the Cavaliers to lose the game.

Nets Spencer Dinwiddie sealed the game after making two free throws with 0.02 second remaining in the game. Dinwiddie leads the nets in scoring with a career high of 22 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists who is also responsible for the clutch 3’s that brings back the lead to the Nets in the crucial plays of the game and never look back.

Is OKC’s “Big Three” Narrow the Gap against the Defending Champion GSW?

NBA – The Western Conference has gotten bigger and better against their counterpart Eastern Conference for the last few years, The West is composed of very good team compare to the East where if Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets put into the East? The best team in the East Cleveland Cavaliers will fall to 5th or 6th places in the East Standings? That shows how great and more talented teams in the West.

The 2017 – 2018 NBA Season is about to start with less than a month to go and the teams in the West shows more interesting after some of them form their own super team all in one goal of dethroning the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

The Warriors will remain the top team to beat this season, whether it’s from the West or East, the defending champion is still the favorite of winning the Larry O’Brien Trophy for the second straight season? But there are some legitimate teams that can arguably stop the Warriors?

The new and improve Oklahoma City Thunder is a legit contender for the Western Conference Championship against the Warriors, the late addition of Carmelo Anthony from a trade deal between the Thunder and the Knicks form a “Big Three” in OKC with Melo, Russell Westbrook and Paul George who is also acquired from a trade from the Pacers. The three NBA superstar will surely lift the Thunders chances of much better post season and if lucky enough, they will have a chance to dethrone the Warriors and have some revenge from the ex- Thunder Kevin Durant.

Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook will be the main guy of the OKC, Paul George will be the 2nd options and perhaps Carmelo Anthony as the 3rd options? Will the Thunder’s Big Three stun the defending champion? Or will the Warriors get past the West easily and returns back to the NBA Finals for the 4th straight season? Let’s wait and see…

Finally it’s done! Kyrie Irving is now a Celtics Player

NBA – After several days of confusion and rumors of possibly void the blockbuster trade between the Cavs former super star point guard and four time All-star Kyrie Irving in exchange of 5 former Celtic’s player that includes two time All-star Isaiah Thomas, defensive player Jae Crowder, rookie center Ante Zizic, 2018 Nets 1st round pick and the deal that sealed the trade the 2020 Celtic’s 2nd round pick.

The trade was almost void when the Cleveland Cavaliers begins to have a second thought of Isaiah Thomas condition of hip injury when the later failed to pass the physical examination with that the Cavaliers ask the Celtics to add another player due to uncertain condition of Thomas? At first the Celtics decline the request but later on give another future round picks that finally sealed the blockbuster trade.

Overall the Cleveland Cavaliers gets 5 players from the Boston Celtics, while the Celtics gets only 1 player from the Cavs but Kyrie Irving is the only legit NBA superstar and the best player among the players that involve in the trade, even though Isaiah Thomas has a great season last year and finished 5th in NBA MVP Regular Season, Irving is still the best player that’s why the Celtics gives up so many players for this trade to happen.

Now that the Boston Celtics finally gets the best player from the trade and Kyrie Irving finally gets his demand to be traded will Irving be the man in Boston? Will he lead the Celtics to the promise land that he couldn’t do when he is the man in Cleveland when LeBron James is still in Miami Heat? Let’s see about that this upcoming season if Kyrie Irving demands was legit or if he truly excel from the years that he and LeBron James brought Cleveland in 3 straight NBA Finals and 1 NBA Champion.

Good luck Kyrie in your new team hopefully you and James meet in the Eastern Conference Finals? Boston vs Cavaliers!
