ATLANTA HAWKS (65-26) at WASHINGTON WIZARDS (52-37)


2015-05-11

The Hawks will be trying to even up the series at 2-2 when they face the Wizards in Washington on Monday.



The Hawks did not have an answer for the Wizards offense in Game 2, allowing Washington to shoot 47.4percent from the field and 35.7percent from the outside. The Wizards also outrebounded them 54-49 and Atlanta will need to come out with a lot of fire on Monday or they could be heading home shortly. They have not had much success in Washington though, losing five of their past six games at the Verizon Center SU and three of those games ATS. Its worth noting that four of the past five games in this series have gone Over the total. This Hawks team is 27-13 ATS after playing three consecutive games this season and also happens to be up against a Wizards group that is 1-8 ATS after a home game where both teams score 100 points or more as well. Washington is, however, 31-19 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 9.5 points over the past two seasons and Atlanta is just 1-12 ATS after two straight games with 10 or more steals on the year. PF Paul Millsap (Illness) is probable for the Hawks, but PG John Wall (Hand) is doubtful for the Wizards in this one.



The Hawks were unable to pick up a much-needed victory in Game 3 and SG Kyle Korver (13.8 PPG, 5.7 RPG, 1.3 SPG in playoffs) needs to make a bigger impact on the game. He had just six points in 37 minutes on Saturday and is shooting just 38.1percent from the outside in the postseason. He is a much better shooter than that and needs to start hitting some shots to space the floor for his teammates. PG Jeff Teague (13.7 PPG, 7.7 APG, 1.8 SPG in playoffs) is also going to need to play a lot better moving forward. The Wizards are playing without John Wall, so Teague should be able to get to the rim at will in this series. Hes going to have to be very aggressive as a scorer in Game 4. PF Paul Millsap (15.0 PPG, 9.2 RPG, 2.2 SPG in playoffs) was sick in Game 3 and it showed, as he finished with just eight points and two rebounds in 23 minutes. He did not look like himself and will need to be better, but it likely wont happen unless he is feeling better. C Al Horford (14.8 PPG, 10.1 RPG, 4.4 APG, 1.3 BPG in playoffs) had 12 points and 10 boards in 28 minutes in Game 4. He tweaked his knee in the fourth quarter last game and didnt reenter the game, but should be good to go in this one. Hell need to be a big presence inside on both ends of the floor.


The Wizards have played extremely well in this series and have been able to make adjustments whenever theyve been needed. SF Paul Pierce (15.6 PPG, 4.0 RPG in playoffs) has provided this team with the leader it needs and he hit a buzzer-beater on Saturday to put the Wizards up 2-1 in this series. Ever since Randy Wittman moved him to the power forward position, this team has thrived offensively and hell need to keep playing well with John Wall out. SG Bradley Beal (21.1 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 4.6 APG, 1.6 SPG in playoffs) continues to play at a high level in this postseason and had 17 points and eight assists in Game 3. He took over most of the play-making responsibilities with Wall out and will likely continue to do that. C Marcin Gortat (15.0 PPG, 9.9 RPG, 1.6 BPG in playoffs) had 14 points and eight boards to go along with three blocks in Game 3. His size continues to be a big issue for the small frontcourt of Millsap and Horford. PF Nene Hilario (7.6 PPG, 6.0 RPG in playoffs) and SF Otto Porter (11.4 PPG, 8.1 RPG, 1.3 SPG in playoffs) were major difference makers in Game 3, combining for 34 points and 16 rebounds. They hit shots when they needed to and must continue to contribute with Wall out.




NBA Hall of Fame coach Dr. Jack Ramsay dead at 89
2014-04-29

Ramsay's death was announced by ESPN, for whom he worked as a broadcaster for many years.

"Dr. Jack Ramsay has passed," E Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online SITRAK C7H Costa Rica SPN spokesman Chris LaPlaca wrote on Twitter early Monday. "A rare man. Loved and respected by all. Fascinating life well lived. An inspiration to so many."

Full NBA coverage at CBSSports.com

Ramsay coached in the NBA for parts of 21 seasons before embarking on a second career as an NBA analyst. He was diagnosed with melanoma in 2004 and later battled growths and tumors that spread to his legs, lungs and brain, then later fought prostate cancer and most recently a marrow syndrome.

His affinity for fitness never wavered, though. Ramsay, who competed in at least 20 triathlons during his life, worked out regularly into his 80s, even as he battled the various forms of cancer that he was stricken with. He often spoke of his love of swimming in the Gulf of Mexico near his home in Naples, Fla., or jogging in a pool or from wall to wall in his hotel room when he was traveling on NBA assignments.

"He's probably forgotten more about the game than I know," Miami Heat coach and president Pat Riley once said of Ramsay, whom he counted as a close friend.

Ramsay also spent several years late in life caring for his wife, Jean, who was diagnosed in 2001 with Alzheimer's disease. She died in January 2010.

Ramsay had enormous popularity within the league, even until the final stages of his life. To commemorate Ramsay's 89th birthday earlier this year, Portland coach Terry Stotts wore a loud checkered jacket and open-collared shirt for a Blazers' game - a nod to how Ramsay dressed when he coached the club.

"Jack's life is a beacon which guides us all," Bill Walton, who was on Ramsay's 1977 title team in Portland, told USA Today in 2007. "He is our moral compass, our spiritual inspiration. He represents the conquest of substance over hype. He is a true saint of circumstance."

John T. Ramsay was born Feb. 21, 1925, in Philadelphia and enrolled at Saint Joseph's in 1942, eventually becoming captain of the basketball team there for his senior season. He earned a doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania in 1949, explaining the "Dr. Jack" moniker that most players and fans simply knew him by.

Ramsay's biggest impact on Hawk Hill would be when he started coaching his alma mater in 1955. He was wildly successful there, going 234-72 and taking the Hawks to the NCAA tournament seven times, the Final Four in 1961 and to a No. 1 preseason ranking by Sports Illustrated in 1965.

To Ramsay, the most significant part of the Saint Joseph's years was this: "I met my wife there," he said.

He was a founding father of sorts for the growth of "Big 5" basketball, which is what the annual series between Philadelphia-area schools Saint Joseph's, La Salle, Penn, Villanova and Temple was dubbed.

"I felt a lot of personal pride and interest in the outcome of those games," Ramsay told the AP in 2004. "There wasn't as much interest in conference play. There wasn't the impact of a national championship or conference championships like there is today. The Big 5 was clearly the biggest thing any of those schools were involved in at that point."
Ramsay took over as coach of the Philadelphia 76ers in 1968, moved on to the Buffalo Braves in 1972 and took his craft to Portland in 1976 - where he took a team with stars like Walton and Maurice Lucas and delivered an NBA championship in his first season, beating the 76ers in six games in the final series.
"For me, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one that I will cherish forever," Ramsay in an 1997 interview.
Indeed, that was his lone NBA title. Walton got hurt the next year, crippling Portland's chances of getting back to championship form during that era. Ramsay coached the Blazers for nine more seasons without another trip to the finals, and spent the final three years of his NBA sideline career in Indiana - resignig from the Pacers in November 1988 after the team got off to an 0-7 start.
Ramsay was 864-783 in his NBA career, being named one of the league's Top 10 all-time coaches in 1996.
When he left the Pacers, Ramsay carefully did not use the word "retire," and began working as a television analyst on 76ers games. Eventually, he worked on Heat television broadcasts for eight seasons before moving full-time to ESPN for radio and TV commentating before the 2000-01 season
"So grateful that his path crossed ours," his former Heat broadcast partner Eric Reid wrote on Twitter early Monday. "Hall of Fame coach and man."

NBA: L.A. Lakers at Oklahoma City 9:30E ESPN
2010-04-30

The people of the United States are known for their short attention spans and ever increasing shorter memories. In this celebrity-status world, it’s easy to jump on the latest fad and forget about what is tried and true. Such was demonstrated on Wednesday night in Los Angeles when the Lakers easily turned back the hard charging, public beloved Thunder. Game 6 of the first round series is set for Friday in Oklahoma City with L.A. having a chance to close it out. The hosts are 1.5-point favorite though according to Sportsbook.com.

The basketball world has become infatuated with latest new kids on the block, the Oklahoma City Thunder. They are young, talented, and fearless and their youth doesn’t allow them to be discouraged for long.

The eminent demise of the Los Angeles Lakers has been discussed from coast to coast on talk radio and every chatroom and blog one could stumble upon. The world had lost track of just how good the Lakers can be last playing a complete basketball game on Mar. 12 in Phoenix, 21 games ago or a lifetime in today’s hectic world.

But the Lakers came prepared, executed their game plan Tuesday evening, integrating all the parts of the triangle offense to perfection and showed why gold and purple still matters. L.A. is 26-15 ATS after failing to cover three of their last four.

Oklahoma City gladly returns home, even faced with elimination and is a 1.5-point favorite with total of 194.5. The Thunder is thunderous 15-5 ATS off a road loss and uncanny 27-8 ATS after failing to cover the number. OKC is 13-3 UNDER at the Ford Center after wearing the visiting blue togs. The Lakers will seek to deliver the knockout blow, but are 1-9 ATS off a cover. Kobe and company are 22-8 UNDER with two days’ rest.

Obviously plenty of powerful StatFox Trends accompany this game. In case you’re still up in the air, the StatFox Game Estimator projects a 102-97 OKC win.
