Perkins vs Crowder

By HOWARD ULMAN (AP) | Apr 26 2015

BOSTON (AP) LeBron James dribbled out the final 20 seconds while players embraced as the Cavaliers completed a sweep of the Celtics.

It may have been the calmest, most congenial 20 seconds of a physical game that left two players with potentially serious injuries and Cleveland wondering if Kevin Love would be ready for the next round.

One thing is certain: Love was angry after Cleveland beat Boston 101-93, a game he left midway through the first quarter Sunday with a dislocated left shoulder. Read more about Cavs sweep Celts as James scores 27 in 101-93 victory

Donald Sterling remains a total scumbag, and the NBA needs to deal with it

Donald Sterling is a total scumbag. He has a history of particularly grotesque and federally prosecuted racism and a list of sexual harassment accusers. He's a grandstanding idiot without a modicum of self-awareness. He's the type of dumbass who would hold a Black History Month celebration in March, and the type of racist moron who would "celebrate Black History" by giving 1,000 game tickets to poor kids, because the brainless hockey puck equates Black people with poor people, because he is a complete cretin.

NBA playoffs in progress, can the Heat threepeat?

The NBA first round of the playoffs for the 2013-2014 season is ongoing and the match ups are quite tight in both the Eastern and Western Conference turfs except for the Miami Heat which swept the Charlotte Bobcats 4-0.

The second seed in the East, Heat can at least rest and reenergize for a week while waiting for its second round opponent which is either the third seed Toronto Raptors or the sixth seed Brooklyn Nets which are now tied 2-2 in their first round series.

A bad season for the ailing Texans

After the Houston Texans eked out a 2-0 start, it was all disaster for the once amazing and promising football team. It suffered its worst franchise record of 14 straight losses and ended up fourth in the AFC South in a season-ending 2-14 win-loss card.

So frustrating was how the team performed that in week 14 and with a loss to the cellar dweller Jacksonville Jaguars, Texans team owner Bob Mcnair handed Head coach Gary Kubiak his pink slip. Mcnair named Defensive coach Wade Philipps as interim coach and later hired former Penn State head coach Bill O' Brien as the team's third head coach.

In the season opener, the Texans won against the San Diego Chargers, 31-28 in a come-from-behind fashion. Down 3 touchdowns (21-points) in the third quarter, the Texans sparked a 24-0 run in the closing minutes of the third quarter and the rest of the fourth quarter to finally win one against the Chargers.

Can Manny Pacquiao bounce back from that devastating knock out loss to Marquez?

Marquez delivers the KO punch of the decade......

Saturday night was not as cold as it seems when Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao was devastatingly knocked out cold by Juan Manuel Marquez with a perfectly executed crisp right straight at exactly 2:59th minute of the sixth round.

Pacquiao started chasing Marquez and landed good shots in rounds one and two until Marquez suddenly surprised Pacman in the third round with an overhand right power shot that knocked down the pound-for-pound king for the first time in the bout and in the previous 36 rounds that they had squared off so far.
