    From The Sidelines: Summer League Q&A With Malik Allen

    Three games in with a full Las Vegas slate ahead, Summer League head coach Malik Allen took some time to chat about his coaching experience and some of the players on the roster. Couper Moorhead: What do you get out of coaching Summer League? Naturally you're working to further your coaching skills, but presumably there's also the benefit of keeping connected to guys that you're going to be working with player development-wise throughout the year.

    10 Things To Know About Nikola Jovic

    1. Jović was born in Leicester, England. His father, Ilija Jovic, was playing basketball there. When Nikola was nine years old, the family moved to Belgrade where Nikola first trained in water polo. He didn’t begin playing basketball seriously until he was 13 and originally played guard before a growth spurt took him to just under 6-foot-11. At 19 years and 14 days old as of the night of the draft, Pat Riley called him “one of the youngest players we’ve ever drafted”.

    Find A Way: The 2022 Miami HEAT Were Exactly As Advertised

    There is no feeling quite like the feeling of a Game 7. Not anymore, at least. When Jimmy Butler put up the transition three that could have completed one of the most shocking and improbable postseason comebacks – down 13 with 3:35 to play and a ticket to the NBA Finals on the line – in league history, it immediately became a moment that locks you firmly in place. With so much hanging in the balance of make or miss, all eyes on one ball, the moment drags you into the present. No phones. No feeds. No notifications. Here. Now. For just a few seconds.

    High Noon: Jimmy Butler Serves Up Silence In Recording His Masterpiece

    With about eight minutes left in the second quarter, the Celtics are fighting back fast and furious. Jayson Tatum scores nine straight points, and after falling behind by 10, again, in the first quarter Boston is within one. Jimmy Butler catches in the right corner. Grant Williams isn’t giving him this shot, as the Celtics have occasionally done. The HEAT have nothing else going. Standstill. Butler gives a half-speed jab step to the right and then makes up his mind. He loads up from three. Williams contests. Butler’s feet barely leave the ground. The lead becomes four.

    Mirror's Edge: The HEAT And Celtics Defenses Couldn’t Be More Similar, And That’s Making The Offense Nearly Unrecognizable

    There have been times in this bizarro series where it has looked like the Miami HEAT were playing against themselves. One dynamic, super-switchy team going toe-to-toe with another, each side employing similar tactics to tighten their grips on the paint. You won’t find any defense more like Miami than Boston. “It’s like we’re looking in the mirror,” Bam Adebayo said. “It’s like we’re literally looking at our twin,” Tyler Herro said. SHOP

    Feel The Need: Bam Adebayo Answers The Call On The Grand Stage

    From the beginning, you could tell something was different. In his entire postseason career, Bam Adebayo had never taken a shot in the first two minutes of the game after four or more dribbles. That may sound far too specific, but it’s an easy way to filter out all the randomness and get right down to what we’re really looking for which are shots that Adebayo had to create entirely on his own. Him vs. The Other Guy shots. Go and get it shots. SHOP

    With just over five minutes to play in Game 4 and Philadelphia up only seven points thanks to a masterful 40-point performance from Jimmy Butler, James Harden has the ball. As the 76ers point guard Harden often has the ball, but in this case he really has it. After inbounding to Tyrese Maxey and getting it back with 16 on the shot clock, Harden proceeds to hold the ball for the next 14 seconds, doing nothing but getting the best switch defender in the league in Bam Adebayo switched onto him.
