NBA Showdown

Cavs & Warriors Rubber Match to Begin Tonight



The NBA finals return tonight (6.1) on ABC, pitting the Golden State Warriors against the Cleveland Cavaliers for the third straight season in a matchup only the most degenerate and self-loathing of Vegas gambling addicts dared to bet against before the season began. 82 regular season games and a playoff system that seems to go on forever has led us to this, exactly what everyone assumed would happen the day after the NBA Finals ended last year in a historic, down 3 games to 1 comeback by the Cavs, aided by a superhuman effort from Lebron James.


Why Pelicans Fans Should Still Watch the NBA Draft


by Trey Monaghan

The New Orleans Pelicans probably already made their moves in Thursday night's NBA Draft with a mid-afternoon trade before the broadcast even began. But even though the local team doesn't have any draft picks tonight doesn't mean the fans shouldn't watch.


Heat Scorch Pelicans in 2nd Half, 107-88


by Norris Ortolano

For the second straight game, the New Orleans Pelicans faced off against one of the three Eastern Conference teams with a winning record, and for the second straight game, they were met with a double digit defeat. Last night’s opponent, the Miami Heat, was able to dominate the second half and finish with a 107-88 victory over the hapless Pels. The loss concluded a week-long road trip in which New Orleans was only able to take one of the four games, and dropped their overall record to 15-18.


Heat Singe Hornets, 108-89


by Ryan Ray

After dropping their first game in 28 appearances to the Chicago Bulls earlier this week, the Miami Heat came to New Orleans Arena Friday looking to get back to their winning ways. The Hornets didn't do much to stand in the way of King James and company, as the Heat dropped the Hornets, 108-89. The loss moves the Bees to 25-48 on the season.


Hornets Can't Stand the Heat, Lose 106-90


by Kerem Ozkan

First, the bad news: The shorthanded Hornets once again fell victim to a more talented squad, losing to the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat on the road, 106-90. New Orleans is 5-14 for the season, dead last in the Western Conference.


CP3 to Bring NBA All-Star Tour to N.O. in December


Angry about the millionaire NBA players who can't come to terms with their gagillionaire owners? Well, let four of the highest paid players in the leauge ease your pain. An all-star tour featuring the Hornets' Chris Paul, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwayne Wade is making a four-city jaunt to the hoop heroes' towns, and N.O. is one of the stops. The high-flying foursome will be at the N.O. Arena Saturday, Dec. 4. As Wade told ESPN, "This will be very neat."


Weezy Got Game


Since the Hornets are out Lil Wayne has had to move onto watching basketball in places that aren't where he's from. At yesterday’s Heat v. Bulls game in Miami, both Lil’ Wayne and Drake sat courtside to watch ball, but only Weezy came along with the chain. After being spotted roaming South Beach couple-style, Lil Wayne and his new girl made Drizzy a third wheel at last night’s match in the rapper’s adopted second home.
