2010 NBA Playoffs

  1. NBA Playoffs: The Mavs fight to stay alive and look damn good in doing so

    Apr 28, 2010, 5:33 AM EDT

    In the first four playoff games between the Mavs and the Spurs, each game was decided by just a few possessions. Dallas edged San Antonio in Game 1, the Mavs were within two points during the fourth quarter of Game 2, and the Spurs’ took Games 3 and 4 by a combined seven points. Then…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Phoenix and Portland are finding a stylistic middle ground

    Apr 26, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    The Phoenix Suns and the Portland Trailblazers are stylistic opposites, and it’s been largely assumed that the winner of the series will be the team that can assert their own stylistic preference on their opponent; if the Suns can make the Blazers run, Phoenix would seem to have the advantage, and if the Blazers can…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Close wins are good enough for the Spurs, who are finding new and exciting ways to best the Mavs

    Apr 26, 2010, 12:00 AM EDT

    When they entered the playoffs, the San Antonio Spurs were not considered a championship contender. Their late season success was chalked up as something of an aberration, and though many picked them to ‘upset’ the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs, that’s not exactly the same as declaring the Spurs fit to…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Dwyane Wade isn't quite ready for his season to be over, goes bonkers in the fourth to down the Celtics in Game 4

    Apr 25, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade had six turnovers, missed eight shots, and botched five free throws in Game 4 against the Boston Celtics. Other than that, he could do no wrong. An enormously impressive 46-point, five-rebound, five-assist performance stands testament to that, and Wade’s performance was capped off brilliantly by scoring 17 of Miami’s 30 points in the…

  5. NBA Playoffs: The Spurs take another close game against the Mavs, heap all the pressure onto Dallas

    Apr 24, 2010, 2:26 AM EDT

    The last two games have represented a phenomenal opportunity for the Dallas Mavericks: rather than the 1-2 deficit they now face, the Mavs could very well have been blocking off travel dates for the second round as the proud owners of a 3-0 series lead. Instead, the San Antonio Spurs showed in both games what…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Bulls rode strong start and hung on for dear life to beat the Cavs in Game 3

    Apr 22, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

    Winning Game 3 wasn’t going to convince anyone that Chicago will win the series, but this game was huge. The Bulls sprinted out to an early double-digit lead behind a huge opening frame from Derrick Rose (15 in the first quarter alone on 6-of-8 shooting; he finished with 31 points on 26 shots, seven assists,…

  7. NBA playoffs: The Dallas Mavericks are setting their phasers to 'kill'

    Apr 15, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    No team in the West has better personnel to better match the Lakers than the Mavs. If you want perimeter defenders with length, Dallas has Shawn Marion, Rodrigue Beaubois, and DeShawn Stevenson. If you want bigs to match up with Pau Gasol and possibly Andrew Bynum, Dallas has Brendan Haywood and Erick Dampier. If you…
