MVP Stephen Curry showed up NBA's best LeBron James, and the Warriors beat the Cavaliers 108-100 in OT. James scored 44 points in 46 minutes and that wasn't enough against Curry and his teammates, who performed excellent defense in the final minutes.
It's been a difficult season for Miami Heat fans and it's not even because of LeBron's leaving-us-at-the-alter-departure.
The true test has come. Both teams match up very well and it will be unlike the previous teams faced in the playoffs. The Cavs were clearly the best team to come out of the East, and the Warriors face their toughest competition.
The choice of games for the 2015 International Series no doubt had its critics amongst the NFL UK community, with many hoping for trips to Wembley from the Colts, Packers, Broncos or Seahawks. Instead we got six teams that lacked any real star power. Changes in the AFC East, however could mean we see our best run of games in this country to date.
It is clear that the Dolphins believe in the ability of Tannehill to potentially emerge as an elite QB. If they would have waited another year for that to happen the deal would have played out much differently, with a much higher guarantee and far more risk.
The passing of Garo Yepremian marks for me a death of another kind, the losing battle of families to football and a Christmas we should never forget. Yepremian's 37-yard field goal on December 25, 1971, ended the longest game in NFL history, a double-overtime heart-stopper.
If legends such as Hakeem Olajuwon can become one of the world's best NBA Players, and Luol Deng an all-star, then imagine the potential that would exist if basketball was just as much a part of African culture as soccer is.
There are skeptics out there that think our struggles this season are a weird karmic repercussion after having four consecutive Finals appearances. That our injuries and adversities are in some ways what we oddly deserved. That is the biggest crock!
In sports, we all love the "old days." Especially the ones that are a part of our childhood. They are not only memories, but feelings. The feelings make the memory that much larger than life. Sports is one of the only places where that can happen.
SUPER BOWL - Une phrase revient sans cesse pour décrire le sport: "ce n'est pas une science exacte." Cette phrase a pris tout son sens dimanche dernier à l'occasion du Super Bowl. Les Seahawks étaient en position idéale pour gagner le match. Mais c'était sans compter sur l'incroyable décision de Pete Carroll.
Calling it inexplicable would be kind. Calling it the worst decision in Super Bowl history would about fit.
Last night, the Kings took advantage of the LeBron-less Cavaliers to rout them 103-84. Sacramento was at their best, getting off to an explosive start and never looked back. Their last two wins have been decided by 19 or more points.
This article employs original and borrowed statistics to paint a future picture in which others can draw upon to predict the longevity and future success of Miami Dolphins' head coach Joe Philbin.
For the Dolphins, Sunday was a chilling reminder of a talented and promising team's inability to finish down the stretch, by 1) losing their season-finale, 2) in front of its home crowd, 3) to another pitiful New York Jets team and 4) for the second December in a row.
I am not asking for anything next Christmas. Instead, I want you to give it all away. With the exception of Carmelo, everyone can go. After all it is the season of giving, right?
The Book of Basketball by Bill Simmons should be considered the bible for basketball fans everywhere, and its crown jewel is The Pyramid, Simmons's idea for a new basketball Hall of Fame and his ranking of the 96 best players in basketball history.
