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

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!

James, who already set an NBA record for most consecutive finals appearances with 7th NBA Finals appearances in this generation along with his team mates James Jones. Both James and Jones are the only non-Celtics player to ever do it for more than half a decade.

Early this 2016-2017 NBA Regular Season both the Cavaliers and the Warriors are predicted to meet once again in the NBA Finals, Both teams are highly favored of winning the East and Western Conference.

The Cavs where they are playing in the weak conference seems no team will have the capability of stopping them in returning back into the finals while the Warriors just added former MVP Kevin Durant to form a super team and solidify their chance of returning back in the finals.

Today, the predictions seem to come true? The Warriors and the Cavs are both in the 2017 NBA Conference Finals, both sweeping their 1st and 2nd round assignment, while the Warriors have already started their best of seven Western Conference Finals with the San Antonio Spurs and currently leading the series 2 – 0, they are more likely to advance in the Finals because the Spurs without their franchise player Kawhi Leonard seems has no way of beating the Warriors?

The defending Champion Cleveland Cavaliers is facing the Boston Celtics that have gone through a tough series with the Washington Wizards that exceeded into Game 7, The Cavs are well rested team before entering their very 1st game with the Celtics in their own best of seven Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics own a home court advantage, but the Cavs owns the Celtics in their regular season match 3 wins and 1 loss.

Game 4, is scheduled at Pacers home court, the home team together with their home crowd will try their best to extend their series over the unbeaten Cavaliers one game at a time.

The Pacers team is facing an impossible mission that through NBA History there is no teams that ever to comeback in 3 – 0 deficit in playoff history.

For the defending champion, they will have a very good chance of finishing the Pacers in Game 4, if they succeed the Cavaliers players will have some time to rest and recover from minor injuries and be prepared on the second round of the playoffs for who may ever they face between the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors?

LeBron James will lead again the Cavaliers in a possible win in Game 4? With his impressive and high basketball IQ there is a high possibility that the Cavs will end the series on Sunday (US Time) against the Pacers.

The Cavaliers is highly criticized on their weak defense, especially on the 4th quarter where they always blew a big lead, but the last game was the opposite of the Cavaliers persona where they outscored the Pacers in the 2nd half after falling down as much as 25 points at the half to make a historic comeback in the 2nd half lead by a remarkable performance of LeBron James and eventually won Game 3, in a thrilling and exiting down to wire finish.
