Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Saturday night drama
Across the NBA on Saturday night there was plenty of drama and plenty of exciting finishes. In other words, it was a great Saturday to have the NBA back!
Martell Webster missed a game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer as Washington's upset bid at home over Boston fell short 89-86. The Pacers and Kings went to double overtime in a 106-98 victory for Indiana. Ray Allen drained a late 3-pointer to help the Heat sink the Nuggets and send the Nuggets to a surprising 0-3 start. Brandon Jennings drained a shot at the buzzer for a 105-102 win over Cleveland, leaving Cleveland hinting there might have been some home time keeping.
And if that was not enough, the Warriors and Clippers had some late-night drama in the night cap.
You could not ask for much more from a wild Saturday night in the NBA and a great way to conclude the first calendar week of the s...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Yep, Ray Allen can still hit monstrous, clutch shots.
Allen showed Saturday night that wearing a Heat jersey won't do a thing to his ability to come through down the stretch, nailing a 3-pointer from the corner in the closing seconds to help the Heat hold off the Nuggets for a win at home.
But it wasn't just Allen's big 3 that was so impressive. Allen...
MIAMI -- This was not opening night and one final celebration of an NBA Championship.
Nor was it the season's first road game amid the unusualness produced by a storm of the century.
This was the unofficial beginning of the long grind.
The Miami Heat, despite a third straight poor defensive effort, trailed the Denver Nuggets by only one point with 14.1 seconds left Saturday...
I had little expectations going into the matchup Saturday between the Denver Nuggets and the Miami Heat; I told myself I wouldn’t be surprised if Denver played well — they have a habit to show up for great teams — and I wouldn’t be surprised if they were blown out. Denver showed up out of [...]The post Denver Nuggets Get Burned By Ray Allen, Miami Heat appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
Ray Allen is already having an impact with the Miami Heat, while Chris Bosh is trying to continue making his own.
The Heat, though, are looking for an improved defensive effort all around.
Allen and Bosh are seeking to build on strong performances in order to help Miami to its fifth straight victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.
Allen came up big in just his third game...
Ray Allen had a four-point play with 6.7 seconds left that put Miami ahead for good, Chris Bosh scored 40 points and the Heat held off the Denver Nuggets 119-116 on Saturday night.
LeBron James finished with 20 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, and Allen scored 23 for the Heat, who escaped when Danilo Gallinari's 3-point try with two seconds left bounced off the rim.
It has been a debate that has entrenched social media — some would claim it’s not a debate at all — for much of the long and weary off-season, as well as the first week of regulation play of the 2012-2013 season. Jason Terry or Ray Allen? First and foremost, both players are phenomenal on [...]The post Celtics’ Jason Terry or Heat’s Ray Allen? appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
Doc Rivers and the Celtics need to get back to worrying about getting through the regular season
Opening night in the NBA for the Boston Celtics had almost everything. There was Kevin Garnett giving the Ray Allen “I will (bleeping) murder you” face, both the Celtics and the Heat played hard and the game even ended with a hard foul that has both teams riled up and ready to throw...

MIAMI - Chris Bosh scored 40 points, and Ray Allen haunted his former coach with a four-point play with 6.7 seconds left to lead the Miami Heat to a 119-116 win over the Denver Nuggets Saturday night. Andre Iguodala's 20-foot jumper had given Denver a 116-115 lead with 14.1 seconds left. But Allen drifted to his favorite spot on the floor -- the left corner -- took a pass from...
HEAT 119, NUGGETS 116
***Miami trails Denver by a point with 10 seconds to go. LeBron drives to his left and passes the ball to the corner. Here we go again, right? Wrong. I suppose that’s the difference a Ray Allen will make for you.
***Danilo Gallinari’s missed three-pointer at the buzzer was just one of his eight misses from long range. Going back to the start of...
Dave & Audley caught up with ex-Hercules TV star, Kevin Sorbo to talk about his love for the NBA.
