NBA Conference Finals Begin

Spurs go up 1-0 in Western Conference Finals

By Michael Sanchez [ Tue May 21 2013 12:34 PM ]

In the National Basketball Association, the country may not get quite as mad as the NCAA Tournament, but we are down to the final four, and there is plenty to pay attention to. The NBA Playoffs have delivered their fair share of surprises (The Bulls taking game one against the Heat) as well as caveats and disappointments (Russell Westbrook's injury in the series against the Houston Rockets), but they've wound down by this point to the Conference Finals.

NBA Playoffs heat up

By Michael Sanchez [ Sun May 27 2012 4:41 PM ]

This weekend, the National Basketball Association begins its Conference
Finals. The NBA Playoffs started off with a whimperas player
after player fell with injuriesand things seemed almost to be
doomed. However, now that we're down to the final four, the NBA has got to
be excited with its prospects for matchups.

In the Western Conference, the Spurs, persistently rumored to be too old to
get the job doneyet consistently making deep playoff runshave mowed
over every opponent they've faced. They blanked both the Utah Jazz as well
as the L.A. Clippers. Going 8-0, though, the Spurs would have you
believe, means nothing. They are a focused group, led by the coach and
player examples of Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan, both of whom have been
around the block more than a few times. The Jazz and the Clips both had
a couple opportunities where they could have stolen a game or two, but they
were ultimately pushed by the mettle of the veteran Spurs.

“Linsanity”

Breakout NBA star continues to impress

By Michael Sanchez [ Wed Feb 15 2012 3:08 PM ]

With a game-winning three over the Toronto Raptors, the Jeremy Lin story was taken to the next level. The Raptors are certainly no team to brag about beating, but Lin has now been too good for too long to be taken as anything other than the real deal.

The NBA is back!

Is it time to consider a shorter season?

By Michael Sanchez [ Wed Nov 30 2011 1:43 PM ]

Over the Thanksgiving break, there was no happier news than the revelation, entirely unexpected, that the NBA would, in fact, have a season this year. With game's slated to begin on Christmas Day (although the schedule appears to still be in doubt), this is the best present a basketball fan could ask for.

The NBA blues

By Michael Sanchez [ Wed Nov 2 2011 2:20 PM ]

Tuesday night was supposed to be opening day for the National Basketball Association. Instead, we have headlines like "The Opening Day That Wasn't" and New Mexico residents got to see UNM beat up on NAIA Davenport. The defending NBA Finals MVP is saying things indicating that the NBA might lose some of their star power. And, of course, the long shadow of the dominant face of American sports (the NFL, of course) only grows longer.

NBA Lockout Spills First Blood

By Michael Sanchez [ Wed Oct 12 2011 1:45 PM ]

The NBA has been officially locked out since July 1. But on Monday night, as the players and owners failed to reach a compromise on a new collective bargaining agreement, the lockout reached a new level: The first two weeks of the 2011-2012 NBA season have been cancelled. This is not virgin territory for the NBA. With a lockout-shortened 1998-1999 season still fresh on fans' minds, and the success of the 2010-2011 season, it seems poor timing for the perennial middle child (if that) of America's sports love to lose any part of a season.
