In the 2020 NBA Finals, Davis became limited late in Game 5 after aggravating a right heel contusion and feeling soreness in his left ankle. But two days later in Game 6, Davis looked spry and helped the Lakers win a title. Davis faced a more severe injury this season when he missed a combined 30 games with his right calf strain. But the Lakers believe Davis’ injury could have been worse had both parties not detected the ailment early and stayed patient with his recovery.Orlando Magic

The Suns have been watching their own version of this movie over the past week, starring Paul, their own age-defying 36-year-old.

With the Phoenix Suns up 30 points at halftime of Game 5 and Anthony Davis out, Twitter is already preparing eulogies for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Davis tested things out on the court in Phoenix on Tuesday about two hours before tipoff, but the injury was still too pervasive to play through.
Maybe it’s because they grew up playing AAU basketball, getting thousands of reps before ever playing in the NBA, or maybe it’s that they benefited from better coaching than in the days of smoking cigarettes at halftime. Regardless, this group has made a seamless transition into playoff basketball because they are more than their speed and athleticism. And because they are able to create advantages through their smarts at such a young age, there is no reason why they should slow down any time soon.Indiana Pacers

That song, which is barely 90 seconds long, got the attention of several NBA teams such as the Bulls, Bullets, Mavericks and Hornets as well as the league, which commissioned Itzler to write and perform the Emmy-winning “I Love This Game.”
Should Brooklyn go on to win and take a 3-1 series advantage, Boston would have quite the mountain to climb to try and get back in this one. Obviously, Game 4 is massive, as they’ll want to take advantage of being able to play in front of the hometown fans.
Back in Atlanta for the first time in the series, the Hawks didn’t give New York much of a chance. They had a nine-point lead at halftime and had an advantage as large as 18.

“They know how to get out there and make plays happen,” Mahomes said. “Noah has been really good – I think he has a veteran-type skillset where he knows how to get himself open even if it’s not exactly what the play is designed to do. He knows how to get his eyes back and how to get on the quarterback’s timing. Then Cornell, he’s a beast. He’s big out there, running across the field and making some big catches in some tough, contested spots.”
As a result, head coach Zac Taylor put a lot of focus on enhancing the defense, but the addition of Joe Burrow could allow this team to continue adding top free agents to their roster.
