Bucks may have lost Game 4, but their mascot won on social media

The Milwaukee Bucks have been clowning the Raptors all series. From them playing Barney theme music in the arena, to this hilarious moment from Giannis after the Bucks curb-stomped the Raptors 104-77.

Ariza is on Leonard duty. So D’Antoni can’t go with Ariza at the power forward when the Rockets are staring at Aldridge, Gasol and Leonard on the court at the same time. The duty will fall to Anderson, which means Aldridge will get what he wants and Rockets fans will have to accept the possibility of another dismantling by a methodical clinic of unappealing post of moves and mid-range jumpers.

Russell Westbrook’s assault on the basketball record books has been the biggest story in the sport ever since. Westbrook may not be the best player in the NBA, but there’s no denying he’s been the league’s most captivating figure throughout its marathon 82-game regular season and first round of the playoffs.

This was the season Westbrook became the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double, but it was so much more than that. Westbrook’s year of inhuman achievement was powered by an emotional core any fan could relate to. He was petty, funny, embarrassing, disappointing, and spectacular, often all at the same time.

Westbrook gave us a season that will endure decades from now. This is how it happened.

In the third match up with the Spurs this season the Rockets didn’t hit a three-pointer until midway through the second quarter. They lost that game by two points, while only making six threes in the game. Houston desperately needed another shooter.nike_redskins_2172

Bengals hope Hardy Nickerson will live up to his family name

Youth Luis Gonzalez Jersey
There’s no questioning Hardy Nickerson Jr.’s football lineage. His father was a four-time All-Pro and member of the NFL’s All-1990s team.
Youth Corey Peters Jersey
Peterman never lost faith in his abilities, in part because of his faith. In fact, before games, he reads Bible passages scrawled on a piece of tattered paper — a practice that began in eighth grade.

Peterman doesn’t lack confidence when launching passes down the field — he completed 46.2 percent of his deep passes in his collegiate career.

During Pittsburgh’s 43-42 victory against Clemson last season, Peterman threw a 55-yard touchdown pass to tight end Scott Orndoff early in the third quarter. After a play fake, Peterman rolled out of the pocket and, with three defenders closing in, heaved a ball deep along the sideline. Even though Orndoff had a receiver draped all over him, Peterman placed the ball only where his big-bodied tight end could corral it.

At 6’2, 226 pounds, Peterman ran a 4.82 in the 40 at the NFL Combine. While he doesn’t have breakaway speed, he can still gain yards when necessary. He’s athletic enough, as he showed in a 76-61 victory against Syracuse in 2016. After another play fake, the quarterback took off to the outside, stiff-armed a defender and ran 42 yards.

Peterman will overthrow a pass or two. While accuracy is his forte, he still lets throws get away because of an inconsistent base. And he needs to learn when to throw the ball away and move on to the next play. He has a habit of trying to create throws or plays that just aren’t there.

FaceApp made Bill Belichick smile and turned Gregg Popovich into a monster

FaceApp. Your social feeds are full of people making themselves look older and younger — now its time to unleash the apps power on the world of sports. Everyone is into different things, so we have three distinct sections for you to enjoy.

I need to preface this with a warning. The natural person to feed into the youth field from the sporting world was Gregg Popovich, everyones favorite sports dad. But something happened. The app struggled, took a long time to process — it refused to churn out a creation. After three uploads I finally prevailed and took the opportunity to make a young Coach Pop.
Authentic Youth Joe Schobert Jersey
Authentic Youth Justin Blackmon Jersey Im sorry. Washington traded up to take Griffin with the second overall pick in 2012, and his first season was promising. After being named Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2012, injuries derailed his career and it never got back on track. Griffin lost the starting job in Washington to Kirk Cousins, and he spent a season mostly sidelined by injury in Cleveland. The Browns released him, and hes still on the market.

Smith, a former quarterback who converted to defense while at the University of Louisville, was a force in college. He was a shadow of his college self after being drafted by Philadelphia with the 26th overall pick in 2014. Smith has zero starts for the Eagles over three seasons and has contributed just four sacks.
