Basketball – NBA

Athletes in the NBA have been plagued with many injuries within the past year.

The Star Forward for the San Antonio Spurs, Kawhi Leonard got injured in a game they won versus the Phoenix Suns last Friday. He has a partial tear in his Left Shoulder and sat out Sunday night’s game versus the Trail Blazers, which they lost 110-111. They bounced back without Kawhi last night and beat the Sacramento Kings 107-100.

While Point Guard, Isaiah Thomas (IT) has returned from his Hip injury to his new team, the Cavaliers and had a good start until last night versus the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves headed by Jimmy Butler and Anthony Wiggins, is a team to watch this year from the West. IT clotheslined Andrew Wiggins in the 3rd quarter when the Cavs were down 52-82, resulting in his ejection from the game.

Watch “Isaiah Thomas Clotheslines Andrew Wiggins & Gets Ejected!!” on YouTube here:

It is still questionable how many minutes IT can play in games and if his hip will last until the end of the season and the Cavs’ possible run in the Playoffs.

Another highlight of the game was when Tyus Jones of the Timberwolves got revenge with a huge dunk on LeBron James.

Watch “Tyus Jones gets blocked by LeBron but comes back with a dunk on LeBron James” on YouTube here:

The Timberwolves restricted LeBron James to a season-low of 10 points to win the game with an impressive 127-99 points.

The biggest story of last night though was a sad one. Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors was out for a while last year with a wrist injury, also taking him out of the MVP race. After his return, playing like himself again, he had a nasty fall versus the Brooklyn Nets in OT and had to be carried off the court.

The Raptors still outlasted the Nets 114-113.

The other highlight for Suga was the alley-oop from KD to Russ early in the game after their bad break up. Their ongoing squabbles and avoidance of each other has been the talk for a while now and this was the first sign of them putting their feelings aside as they were forced to be teammates in the All-star game

Watch “KD Lobs to Westbrook, West’s Bench celebrates” on YouTube here:

Westbrook was visibly competitive and serious throughout the game. The commentators had to say it seemed like a Playoff game to him.

That alley-oop dunk did not mend the split with him and KD based on his post-game interview though as he played with the reporters.

Poor Russ. Deeply wounded.

In other news, it was announced last night that DeMarcus Cousins has been traded to the New Orleans Pelicans to join Anthony Davis in exchange for Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Gallaway and a furture 1st and 2nd round pick!
