In a tense seven-game series, the fourth-seed Dallas Mavericks ousted the first-seed Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference semi-finals.

After falling short to the Golden State Warriors in round one of the NBA playoffs, the Denver Nuggets can look into offseason trades to bolster their roster. Nikola Jokic is an established star, and more than capable of being the best player on a championship team.

This was ugly. This was physical, full of mistakes, missed shots, and miscues. The game plan couldn’t have resembled how the Warriors won Game Four. For the sake of Kings fans everywhere let’s hope not, anyway. Mike Brown was the substitute coach for the Warriors after Steve Kerr was placed in health and safety protocols. […]

If you let the internet tell it, Zach LaVine has made it in the NBA as a superstar. His 2022 NBA season with the Chicago Bulls has vehemently proved that.

After bowing out of the NBA playoffs in the first round, the Atlanta Hawks must consider making trades to improve their roster. Trae Young, of course, remains untouchable.
