Some interesting comments from the Cavs’ head coach.
According to Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, the Boston Celtics are harder to defend to gameplan for than the Golden State Warriors.
From down 25 to up 89 for the series is a 114 point swing! Whoa.
With 7:05 left in the second quarter of Game 1 in the Western Conference Finals, the Warriors were in trouble. The Spurs, off to a blazing hot start, had come roaring out of the gates and slapped the Warriors in the face. A hard, meaningful slap. Right in the kisser. So, with 7:05 left in the second quarter, Kawhi Leonard was fouled by David West. He approached the foul line, sank the first shot. Sank the second. The Warriors were down by 25 points. At home. In Game 1.
Kyrie Irving saves the day as the Cavs take a 3-1 lead.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have taken a 3-1 lead over the Boston Celtics in a game that was much closer than the final score suggested. The toughness of the Celtics was once again on display, as the wine and gold had to overcome a ton of adversity to come away with the much needed win.
Ginobili had one of the most successful careers we’ve probably ever seen in professional sports, period.
If this is the end for Manu Ginobili — the 39 year old says he’ll take a few weeks to contemplate retirement — it’s been a hell of a ride. The sweet-shooting Argentine lefty left his mark on basketball by being successful at every single stop of his career, perhaps as much as anyone we’ve ever seen in basketball. He may never have been the best player in the NBA, or even the best player on the Spurs, but instead, Ginobili established his legacy another way: He won, and won, and won.
The Warriors swept the first three rounds of the playoffs as they head back to the NBA Finals for the third straight season.
The Golden State Warriors defeated the San Antonio Spurs 129-115 on Monday night, becoming the first team to ever enter the NBA Finals with a 12-0 playoff record. This will be the third straight Finals appearance for the Warriors, though we don’t yet know for sure who they will face.

AS mentioned in my previous column, today’s generation of Filipinos who are in their 15s-to early 20s are no longer newspaper readers and instead, almost to a man, users of digital media which has become their main (if not sole) source of information.Read more ...
A good intentioned President decides to appoint as Heath Secretary a staunch advocate for herbal medicine. Oh.... and the appointee isn't an MD - she just holds a certificate in heath care given by a prestigious academic institution that previously required enrollees to have an undergraduate degree.
Of course the academic institution was funded in part by the family of the appointee.Read more ...
A PHRASE very often heard from anti-mining advocates is “Common Good”. You need more than your fingers on one hand to count how many times someone like the DENR secretary-designate mentions this term while making a one-hour PowerPoint presentation, and more than your fingers on your two hands if the presentation is even longer.Read more ...
