Taking Bad Schotz:
With 25 games left in the NBA season, two teams look like they have separated themselves from the rest of the pack in the East. Right now the possible match-up between the Miami Heat and the Indiana Pacers is drawing a lot of attention as of late. This match-up is becoming even more interesting because Danny Granger is returning from a knee injury, which makes this Pacers team even more dangerous. However with all of these things going right for the Pacers, the question still remains if they can dethrone the defending champion Miami Heat. Let’s look at the match-ups.
The Point Guards
The Point guard match-up between these two teams will take place between George Hill and Mario Chalmers. Right now Hill is averaging 14.6 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 4.9 APG while Chalmers averages 8.1 PPG, 2.1 RPG, and 3.4 APG. Both players are good knock-down shooters but George is the better scorer and the creator for his team.
The Shooting Guards
This is the key match-up between the two squads. Paul George is...

LeBron James is an incredbile athlete. He has arguably the best skill set of any basketball player, ever. He has Magic Johnson’s court vision, with Michael Jordan’s athleticism, and Karl Malone’s body. There is nothing he cannot do on a basketball court. Fans know this, and they have been clamoring to see him participate in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest for his entire carer. After...
Every time you see LeBron James getting ready for a game, you notice him sitting in the locker room with huge bags of ice on both knees. The 6’8″ James has had problems wit his knees for years. His NBA career could be cut short by the problems he has with his knees. James is not that old but his knees are. People don’t realize how much pounding knees take running up and down...
He didn't look like he was hurting, but LeBron James reportedly played through knee pain to help the Miami Heat win last night. The superstar has been performing on a whole new level this season (which didn't seem possible), and he has the Heat poised to repeat as NBA champions.Despite the knee injury that Brian Windhorst of ESPN says occurred after James fell awkwardly...
Juwan Howard was on the floor for the final moments of the win that clinched last season’s NBA championship for the Miami Heat.
Turns out, that might not have been his last game as a pro.
The Heat brought Howard back on Saturday, signing the 40-year-old power forward to a 10-day contract. It will be his 19th NBA season, and he’s expected to be with the team on Sunday when Miami...
That gasping sound you here, is Miami Heat fans holding their collective breath.
During the third quarter of the Heat’s 99-93 victory over the New York Knicks, James went up for an alley-oop dunk and came down awkwardly after being hit by a defender, he managed to finish the game after some initial discomfort, he’s worried but doesn’t expect to miss any time.
“I was concerned...
Tweet On Friday Magic Johnson made a pretty bold statement when he offered to put up $1 million if LeBron James enters the NBA’s Slam Dunk Contest. It’s probably a safe bet that won’t happen so we will have to settle for the dunks worthy of a dunk contest that James has been doing [...]
The Miami Heat have signed 40-year-old Juwan Howard to a 10-day contract. Howard, who won an NBA championship with the Heat last season, averaged just 1.5 points and 1.7 rebounds in 28 games.

Dwyane Wade added 20 points for the Heat, who had to overcome a 16-point deficit to beat the Knicks for the first time in three tries this season. Chris Bosh bounced back from a dismal first...
Friday I pleaded to stop the madness and obsession over the made up controversy swirling around LeBron James and his dunking. No less than 24 hours later, Magic Johnson put up $1 million dollars on national television to try to entice LeBron James to participate in next year's dunk contest.
I kid you not. One. Million. Dollars. Here's the video evidence from...
First of all, Magic Johnson isn’t stupid. The guy actually turned out to be a quality businessman. You don’t think he’ll get a serious return on this million somehow? Secondly, I’m tired of this story. I think Lebron is the best player in the world by far. I think he’s a cheesedick for not participating in the Dunk Contest. I don’t go to bed worrying about it. Newsflash...
MVP candidate Tony Parker went down with an ankle injury last night, and if we have learned anything about Spurs' coach Greg Popovich, we probably won't see Parker again until the playoffs.The Spurs will be fine, as they have already stacked up a nice record for themselves (best in the NBA to be exact) and are generally excellent at plugging in pieces to combat the wear and...
Danny Granger has only played 18 minutes over the Pacers last 2 games before being shut down due to soreness in the same knee that kept him out most of the season.
According to the Indy Star:
Granger only played eight minutes against the Bulls because of soreness in his left knee, the same knee that caused him to miss most of this season.
He went scoreless, missing all three shots...
