2. New York knows how to win. Three of the Islanders’ four playoff victory came overtime, including double overtime Sunday 2-1, clinch series victory. Center John Tavares tied the score with 54 seconds left, then it is in the second extra session to New York back-to-back victories give double overtime. Speaking of Tavares …

The islanders captain and former No. 1 overall pick se five playoff goals firmly put to the postseason lead with Lightning’s Nikita Kucherov and San Jose’s Joe Pavelski. His nine points rank second, and he has 18 points in the last 10 games. The 25-year-old is a two-time All-Star, and he has more regular-season overtime goals if everyone in franchise history.

4. The islanders are in rare territory (at least recently).

Uniondale Nassau Coliseum was the home team until the season, when the club moved to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Despite a number of Internet snark about renaming the team the Brooklyn Hip pants, the franchise retains its original name and logo “in support of the glorious history of the team,” as the club that announced the move.

Five takeaways from the Clippers 96-88 loss to Portland

a playoff game that was taking them for attacks in the Clippersâ ???? grab. Does this sound familiar? They point Saturday night felt at the Moda Center repeating a song on.

Here are five takeaways from a match that trimmed the Clippersâ ???? lead in the best-of-seven series to 2-1

1. Night belongs to the Trail Blazers. They have all the dramas on the gameâ ???? final 3:52 to Jamal Crawfordâ ???? The three-point play, the Clippers took a 85-81 lead. Portland outscored the Clippers 15-3 the rest of the way, thanks to a few gravel from Maurice Harkless, of all people, on a putback wet and large C.J. McCollum three-pointer. The Clippersâ ???? Blake Griffin trying to get a bad timed three-pointer that missed predictable, and Chris Paul airballed his own uncontested three-pointer. It wasnâ ???? t collapse on par with the Clippersâ ???? A Game 5 against Oklahoma City in 2014 of Game 6 against Houston in 2015, but it certainly seems to be a potential turning point in a series in Game 4 significantly tougher road on Monday. â ???? When the wentyd, they play a better, â ???? Paul said. â ???? The coaches always say itâ ???? SA make-miss league, but at the end of the day you should give yourself a chance, which means you have to execute.â ???? give

2. Griffin looks like someone more than three months. She jumper was off again, and he’s out of rhythm. He has only five of 16 shots and has a turnover in the final minutes during a possession when the Clippers dogged by just three points. â ???? I ???? ve got better at the end of the contest in order to win for us, â ???? Griffin said. â ???? I take that man. Ita ???? s on me.â ???? The Clippers have released their first seven games with Griffin since returning from a 45-game absence, but coach Doc Rivers said had an uneven performance to wait. â ???? He just has a difficult night, a ???? Riviere said. â ???? You donâ ???? t miss three months of the basketball and just keep coming back and big. Ensures ???? engage nights HEA ???? contract likely to be struggling in this run, and as I said before the playoffs, make sure ???? is nothing we can do about it. I ???? m happy to have him back.â ????

3. The Clippers out-climb reworked. The Trail Blazers were the one who seized most of the loose balls and played with the additional oemf of a team that was worried about the threat of extinction. â ???? She pushed and we didnâ ???? t really pushes back, â ???? Griffin said. â ???? You have to be the team that initiating. You Kana ???? t is the team that responds to it. They have everything, I felt like they wanted do.â ????

4. Mason Plumlee better than Deandre Jordan? Yes indeed. Plumlee had 21 rebounds, nine assists and six points and had not missed five of six free throws over the final four minutes, then Jordan have partially sealed in the Clippersâ ???? lot. â ???? Plumleeâ ???? a good, athletic big that help his team from a very, â ???? Jordan said after seven of 10 free throws and finished with 16 rebounds and 11 points. â ???? Much bounce to him. He has a lot of them, but this game is over. WEA ???? re looking forward to [Game] 4.A ????

5. Nothing comes easy for the Clippers in the playoffs. They never have a series of three games to none not less swept a series in 17 attempts. Now it seems that a series that could have been properly exclude them in a relatively easy fashion could go six or seven games, unless they regroup quickly. â ???? We really donâ ???? t want to go into this long playoff series, â ???? Clippers shoot waiting J.J. Redick said. â ???? Anything can happen as we demonstrated last year against Houston. If you get a team down and we have a four-point Leada against a team we’ve had 2-0. We have a great chance to go 3-0 on Monday WEA ???? will have an opportunity to go 3-1.â ???? Paul says a ???? Game 4 is a great game for us. It was, but we must allow it go. But we really need to get game 4.A ????

Thunder Bouncing Back, Working On What It Can Control

The Thunder shooting woes Monday night was obvious. This is what stood out on the stat sheet by a large margin

But shooting is a difficult thing -. Sometimes there is a lack of control that can have each team when flying shots. Just ask the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of the first-round series, and you will have a similar response to that of thunder since Game 2’s heartbreaking 85-84 defeat that leaves the data series tied 1-1.

If the thunder comes back to practice on Tuesday, they do not spend an inordinate amount of time on his shooting. Instead, head coach Billy Donovan has his team focused on his defense and offensive execution.

“We ca not lose sight or focus on the things we can control in an effort to make improvements,” says Donovan.

which would be less likely been lying on the stat sheet Monday that Dallas recorded on eight of its last 13 possessions in the game – a number not in the previous three-plus quarters of the game have gained, or in game 1. While most of the night the thunder defense was sharp, and Dallas shot just 5-for-19 from three-point range, there were moments in the play where Donovan believes his team can have done a better job.

The fact remains that if Kevin Durant going 8-for-33 instead of 7-by-33 or go to the free throw line more than five times, the thunder may be up 2-0 in this series. On Tuesday, Durant said Dallas was as physically been with him as other teams, but he for his spots on the floor. Durant did, have shots in rhythm and even going to the edge, but just could not hit the ball to go down. In Game 3, the Thunder want more physical, sharp and more diverse in its offensive half court.

“We have to be better,” Durant said. “We have to be more physical on the offensive end and play with more speed.”

fall from a game at home want to do in the Playoffs not a team, but there is an understanding on this Thunder team on a given night, anything can happen in the NBA postseason. The Thunder is on, off, and tied in almost every conceivable combination of records in playoff series. The resilience, his attitude and his fight will be very important for success when it hits the road for the next two games, hoping to return two wins behind Oklahoma City in time for Game 5.

“it goes to show what kind of team we are – how we respond,” has waiters. “We ca now do not break. We know that goes with it. That’s what we want, a chance to face adversity, go on, we have road in a hostile environment. To provide to the business. We have to work together come as a whole, as we are busy all year, and bounce back. “
