Your Morning Dump… Where winning 65% of your games is pretty damn good

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.   The process of clinching remains a work in progress, though, thanks to Indiana’s 116-104 win over Oklahoma City. Though the seventh-seeded Celtics need either a [...]

Recap: Cavs rest while Celtics coast to victory

Recap: Cavs rest while Celtics coast to victory

In a game where Cleveland decided that it would rest their best players, the Celtics did what playoff teams are supposed to do against inferior opponents, bury them. It started off a little bit slow, but after the first frame the Celtics went on a big run, and never looked back. And with the help [...]

Recap: Celtics hold on to beat disinterested Cavs

Recap: Celtics hold on to beat disinterested Cavs

Yes, LeBron James “played” in this game, but his line of 26 minutes played, 5-14 fg (0-5 3 pt) was indicative of this night for Cleveland. They were like Red in The Shawshank redemption.
