Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

Paul George dunks, LeBron answers with three in wild end to third quarter (VIDEO)


This series is so much fun.

Paul George just absolutely crushed the Birdman Chris Andersen with a dunk. Just crushed him.

LeBron James comes back down and drains a three.

Then a little hand slap at midcourt. Respect.

These are two teams standing toe-to-two trading blows, and most teams wither when they do that with the Heat. Not the Pacers.

I just want this series to drag out six or seven games because it is so much fun to watch.

Report: Cavs sign Dionte Christmas

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.

LeBron James sat out the Cavs’ preseason game against the Sixers on Thursday night, but Cleveland still held the lead for all but the final 5.4 seconds. Then, Sixers rookie Scottie Wilbekin did this:

Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
