Mohamed Salah Ate Roma Alive Mohamed Salah Ate Roma Alive

Midway through the process of finding the precise Hannibal reference to throw into a headline about how thoroughly Mohamed Salah had obliterated the Roman forces sent to Liverpool in today’s fantastic Champions League semifinal, Roma stormed back from what was a 5-0 deficit to seal for themselves a 5-2 result and made…

The Rockets Fine-Tuned Their Equation And Became Invincible  The Rockets Fine-Tuned Their Equation And Became Invincible 

The Houston Rockets led by one point, 50-49, at the end of the first half last night in Minnesota. So it’s not like they were in a crisis situation. But if a lead can be said to be an ugly and bad one, this qualified.

Giants' Brandon Belt Works Historic 21-Pitch Plate Appearance, To No Avail Giants' Brandon Belt Works Historic 21-Pitch Plate Appearance, To No Avail

Brandon Belt of the Giants worked an insane 13-minute, 21-pitch plate appearance in the top of the first inning today, against Angels starter Jaime Barria. This strikes me as almost a troll move! Barria faced six batters in the inning, gave up three singles, and loaded the bases—he threw 28 pitches to players not…

Hoo Boy, Bucks-Celtics Is A Blast Hoo Boy, Bucks-Celtics Is A Blast

Man, this Bucks-Celtics series is a hell of a lot of fun. Game 1 was a bonkers overtime affair that featured an insane glut of ballsy shot-making in the final minute of regulation. Games 2 and 3 were mostly wipeouts, but Sunday’s Game 4 had another incredible fourth quarter that came right down to the final possession.

Scrappy Matthew Dellavedova Beats The Buzzer With Maximum Scrappiness

Khris Middleton used a lovely up-and-under move to create a bucket out of Milwaukee’s last full possession of the first quarter of Sunday’s Game 4 between the Bucks and the Boston Celtics. Middleton’s basket left just 1.2 seconds on the clock—not really enough for the Celtics to generate much of a possession headed…

The Punishment For Pitching A No-Hitter Must Be Swift And Severe

A’s pitcher Sean Manaea no-hit the Boston Red Sox Saturday evening. It was Manaea’s third win in five starts, and Oakland’s fifth win in six games. Manaea had some help on the no-hit part from the umps and the scorekeeper, but the gem was a gem even if you happened to think Sandy Leon’s bloop to shallow center…

Grim And Gritty Ricky Rubio Has The Thunder On The Ropes Grim And Gritty Ricky Rubio Has The Thunder On The Ropes

It can be a little disorienting to remind yourself that grim and gritty Ricky Rubio, the veteran point guard of the Utah Jazz, has played exactly the same number of playoff games over the course of his NBA career as Donovan Mitchell has. Rubio, whose transformation from doe-eyed, baby-faced sidekick to leathery,…

I'm Pleased To Inform You That Filip Forsberg Is At It Again

When we last saw Filip Forsberg scoring for Nashville, he was putting the finishing touches on a Game 1 win against the Avalanche with a goal of pure sorcery. After a quieter two games, Forsberg’s magic has reappeared in Game 4, opening the scoring with a hurricane of a breakout goal that may have forced Colorado…

Larry Nance Jr. Spikes Trevor Booker's Weak Shot Attempt Directly Into Hell

The Pacers are grinding their way back from Playoff LeBron’s personal game-opening 16-1 run, with no help from this sorry Antawn Jamison-ass quasi-hook flip shot by Indiana’s Trevor Booker, which Larry Nance Jr., acting as the living incarnation of righteous justice, pounded into the parquet so hard a dolphin on the…

Nothing Matters, But LaMarcus Aldridge Was Awesome Last Night Nothing Matters, But LaMarcus Aldridge Was Awesome Last Night

They have to say they believe they can win, of course. More than that, they have to actually believe that it’s at least possible, or they would not be the sorts of people capable of claiming the West’s seventh playoff seed with a roster that looks like somebody sat on a keyboard. None of the rest of us are bound by…

Steven Adams's Arm Seems To Have Survived This Dunk

Please turn up the volume on your computing device, and listen to the goddamn sound this Steven Adams alley-oop made.

Uhh, The Pacers Beat The Living Shit Out Of The Cavaliers Uhh, The Pacers Beat The Living Shit Out Of The Cavaliers

Apart from a furious run spanning the end of the third quarter and the start of the fourth, the Cavs were soundly whupped on their home floor by the Pacers Sunday afternoon, and lost 98-80. Possibly these are the end times. Up...is it down?

The End Of Bucks-Celtics Featured A Ridiculous Sequence Of Clutch Buckets The End Of Bucks-Celtics Featured A Ridiculous Sequence Of Clutch Buckets

Game 1 of Bucks-Celtics was choppy and hectic and low-scoring, but man was it tense, and the last 10 minutes or so were breathless, hilarious fun. Let’s just sit here and enjoy some highlights for a few minutes, yeah?

Jrue Holiday And Anthony Davis Overwhelmed The Trail Blazers Jrue Holiday And Anthony Davis Overwhelmed The Trail Blazers

Saturday’s slate of NBA playoff games—Game 1s? Games 1?—mostly went as expected: the Warriors made lunchmeat out of the Spurs; the Raptors almost Raptored against the Wizards, but pulled away in the fourth quarter; the Sixers just ran away from the Heat in the second half. Home teams went 3-0 through the first three…

A Squeeze! We've Got A Squeeze Here, Folks A Squeeze! We've Got A Squeeze Here, Folks

The Nats—who’ve been playing like the friggin’ Nots to start this season—came into Saturday at risk of getting swept at home by the Colorado Rockies after getting dropped Thursday and Friday in crappy, dispiriting performances. Desperate times, my friends:

Good Lord, Filip Forsberg, This Is Sorcery Good Lord, Filip Forsberg, This Is Sorcery

Filip Forsberg scored twice in the third period of the Predators’ 5-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 1 of their first-round series tonight, but forget about that first goal for now, because his second one was truly gorgeous. It’s unclear how exactly he managed to keep track of the puck here in order to pull this off,…

Portugal Forward Jéssica Silva Is The Queen Of Filthy Nutmegs

Meet Jéssica Silva, forward for Spanish club Levante and the Portuguese national team. Last week, she made an appearance for Portugal in a Euro 2021 qualifier against Belgium. This gave her an opportunity to do what she does best, which is to absolutely ruin defenders with beautifully disgusting nutmegs:

How On Earth Did Trayce Thompson Catch This? How On Earth Did Trayce Thompson Catch This?

Your average snow cone catch is great, sure, but have you considered the reverse snow cone? The ball somehow just barely pinned at the very bottom of the glove? Trayce Thompson provided tonight in his second game as an Oakland Athletic, robbing Yasiel Puig in the sixth inning, and the result was pretty dang sweet:

"That Ain't Right!"
