It was then my body felt a relief. The score was now 55-35 and 8 more minutes to play. The quarter started and there I was in the game feeling ready to dominate. I rebounded like no other this quarter and my coach and was happily yelling from the sideline. I felt proud of myself and kept doing what I do best, play basketball.
Something funny that came out of that was when Darrall was deep in foul trouble, 4 fouls on only Chamberlain, he shouted at one of the referees “ Well, why don’t you just give the guy [one] hundred and we’ll all go home!” Sure enough he did just that. After Wilt had heard that he was going hard for the triple digits. Because of this very game the NBA had changed the lane (paint) from twelve feet wide to sixteen feet wide. With the third quarter coming to an end, Wilt racked twenty-eight, adding on to his 41 is 69 points from just the three quarters he’s been in. “The Big Dipper” scored his 80th point with 7:51 left on the clock.
When I stood up, everyone was screaming. The ball had gone in and I got fouled. I was so happy that inside me, a party was going on. I concentrated and shot the free throw which went in. All the six games, at least scoring one basket, we got to the finals.
So, i 'm expecting to go in once were down by thirty or so and i 'll have fun playing the garbage minutes. But, I was wrong on both. I played almost the entire game and we won the game. As you can tell by the picture, we celebrated like we just won the championship. It is one of my favorite memories.
If I didn’t have my teammates with me to encourage me on the court, I do not think I would have kept my goals of wanting to play D1 basketball. There were times that I was challenged so much during practice by his strong words that I just wanted to scream at him. In my 4 years, there was not one time that I did though because of my teammates. They knew how to calm me down and keep a positive attitude when things were hard during practices. One specific player that kept me sane was Napheesa Collier.
On a hot, sunny day of June I went to the park and played in a 5 on 5 basketball tournament with a few friends I have been playing basketball with since the 3rd grade. We didn’t have many people with height our tallest guy was just about 6’2 but that didn’t stop us from setting a goal to win this tournament and show no weakness to the other teams. We had the talent, the heart, and the discipline to push ourselves and to try and win this tournament. We started warming up on half of the court while our first competitors in the orange jerseys warmed up on the other half, the official finally blew the whistle and told us to get our starting 5 ready and on the court. Marcus at shooting guard, Montez at small forward, Chris at power forward, Josh
We were very excited and a bit nervous because our enemy was class 6/1 who was very good at basketball. Although, everybody shouted "go on, class 6/8". So, I wanted everyone play fairplay. In the last, we were quite sad because we lost 1-2, buy I was happy because everyone played

From the 1980’s to 2002, even though many aspects of the playing style have gone in to new era, NBA’s style of playing basketball kept its heart the same.
And I thought to myself “oh my god” because at the time, I was like 4 foot 7, and they were like 5 foot 2. I ran as fast as I could, to the end zone and I scored, and everyone went bananas, my whole team came dashing over to me, giving me high fives and shoulder bumps. But I just stood there silently, smiled, and thought to myself “Thanks
Or it could very well have been a mix of both reading the tea leaves and wanting independence in a knew environment, but regardless Kyrie got out and is one of the major reasons why the Cleveland Cavaliers are disintegrating. The Cavaliers, the best team in the Eastern Conference three years in a row, were not embarrassed by the Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals, but did narrowly avoid a sweep by shooting so efficiently that they set historic highs and broke records— they lost the series 4-1. First thoughts after that the Finals have ended was how amazing and dominant the Warriors were, are, and how the Cavs kept every game extremely close, but now we aren’t seeing the same Cavaliers team, instead we are seeing a Kyrie-less

They were up 3-1 in the series, then 3-2 with game 6 in their backyard. Up 20 something points in game 6, they coughed up (not choked because I am being nice) the game and eventually lost the series 4-3. Oh yeah, did I mention they also coughed up a couple games to the Golden State Warriors this year, which contributed to the Warriors record start so far. Different owner, different players but same old cursed Clippers.

Today was the first basketball game of the season, and Hayden felt really good about this game he came out ready to play, and knew all the plays. They were playing Indiana Hoosiers, and everyone was saying that Hayden didn 't deserve to be on the college team he was on, but he just let it go and didn 't let them get to his head, so Hayden kept a positive attitude and played his hardest.

It was the last quarter and Hayden 's team had the ball so Lebron Jeffreys had the ball and Lebron went to pass to Hayden. Hayden was wide open because the defense went and trapped Lebron so Lebron threw it to Hayden and Hayden SLAMMED DUNKED it!
