Morning, NBA fans!
It was a bit of a crazy night in the NBA last night, as the ten games on the schedule provided all sorts of intrigue. Tonight is only slightly-less busy, with eight games scheduled, but there are some juicy possibilities in store for us, so I hope you’re ready for the action!
Let’s start today’s link dumpage by getting you caught up on last night’s chaos: scores, recaps and video highlights! [NBA.com]
Hope you have your feet up and resting comfortably – it’s time for your Morning Shootaround. [NBA]
Well, the NBA trade deadline sure didn’t offer much in terms of actual excitement, but it did prove one thing: the battle for the NBA championship boils down to three teams this season. [Sports Illustrated]
Of those three teams, it was the Indiana Pacers who made the loudest statement on deadline day: “We’re coming.” [Sporting News]
Speaking of NBA trade excitement, just because there were no big trades that went down before the deadline doesn’t mean we won’t see some this summer. Here’s a video that breaks down some big trades that still might take place in the NBA [Bleacher Report]
And your Boston Celtics link of the day provides some highlights of last night’s game call by Bill Simmons. [Masslive.com] Hey – I like Simmons, for the most part, and he sure did his best to make a fairly unimportant game sound important.
