NBA Daily Links: Monday, December 30, 2013

Happy Monday morning to you all, my fellow NBA fans!

Tomorrow night is the big one, and no, I’m not talking about the Celtics-Hawks game, although that ought to be a good one.  Nope, I’m talking about New Year’s Eve, the one night a year where we actually celebrate taking one more step toward our oblivion.  Yes!   Hope your plans are set, and I hope they are not lame like mine!

Onto the links!

There were five games in the NBA yesterday, including a huge win for the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Get caught up here.  [NBA.com]

Morning Shootaround?  [NBA] You’re welcome!

And let’s complete your morning education with 7 things to takeaway from yesterday’s action.  [Bleacher Report]

The NY Times has declared Thursday night’s showdown between the Golden State Warriors and the Miami Heat as the game of the week.  Go see why.  [NY Times.com]

Speaking of those Miami Heat: they necessity is the mother of invention.  See how this phrase applies to the Heat’s desire to make the NBA Finals for the 4th straight time.  [USA Today.com]

Evan Turner threw down a nifty windmill dunk at the end of his 76ers win against the Los Angeles Lakers yesterday.  He apologized for the late game shenanigans, though.  [Sports Illustrated]   Personally, I don’t think he needed to – it’s not like Philadelphia was up by 40 when he did it.

Last but not least: I’ve already written about how I felt when the Celtics traded Paul Pierce.  The dismal situation in Brooklyn isn’t making me feel any better about the bad hand that was dealt to a future Hall of Famer.  [Masslive.com]

Thanks for the read, and be sure to stick around as I have some things up my sleeve today!!!
