The seventh-seeded Bobcats will face the two-time defending NBA Champion and second-seeded Miami Heat in the first round. The opening game of the series is set for Sunday, April 20 at 3:30 p.m. and will air on ABC.

Neal is averaging 10.5 points per game this season while spending time with both the Milwaukee Bucks and the Bobcats. The fourth-year pro scored in double figures in six of the final eight games of the regular season.

Bobcats Drop Wizards in OT, Crucial Loss for Wiz

Bobcats Drop Wizards in OT, Crucial Loss for Wiz

Posted on 10 April 2014 by Nick Dorsey

 

The Wizards were back in action at the Verizon Center against the Charlotte Bobcats last night. This game had huge implications for the NBA playoff seedings and the Wizards were looking to rebound after a tough loss to the Bulls over the past weekend.

Washington had a horrendous first half in a matchup that was essentially a playoff game. John Wall struggled early as he was turning the ball over often and failed to penetrate the defense. The Bobcats were getting easy baskets in the paint led by the good guard play of Kemba Walker.

The Bobcats entered the third quarter with a 13-point lead and that’s when the Wizards began to find their groove. John Wall led the way in a 14-2 scoring run to open the third quarter and the Wizards were right back in it.

The fourth quarter was back and forth and the Wizards finally gained the lead with just over five minutes to play. Kemba Walker hit a big three to tie the game at 83 and Wall hit a jumper on the other end with just over 50 seconds to play. Washington had possession with a tied game and just 17 seconds left and coach Wittman took a timeout.

Marcin Gortat finished a nice feed from John Wall to take a two-point lead with just 9 seconds left. Al Jefferson was found down low on the other end, wide open for a layup to tie it with just second’s left. Gortat mentioned after the game he did not want to foul and give Jefferson a chance at a 3-point play to win the game.

The Wizards were abysmal in overtime as they only scored one point and fell to the Bobcats 94-88. With the opportunity squandered, the race is now on with just four games left in the regular season. The two teams are now tied with a 40-38 record and the Cats hold the tiebreaker. The Bobcats have two games at home remaining against the 76ers and Bulls and road games against the Celtics and Hawks.

With how the standings shake up after last nights round of games the Wizards are set to face the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat. It is imperative that Washington finishes strong down the stretch so they can still get a shot at the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. Here are more of my thoughts from last night’s game:

- Trevor Booker was a big-time spark player for the Wizards last night and Wall credited Booker postgame for being the sole reason they still had a chance to be in the game after the first half. He was active on both ends of the floor and his prescence was felt defensively as he finished with five blocks.

- Wall struggled early on, but as he turned it on early in the second half the rest of the team followed. He finally was able to get through the interior of the defense and make plays for his big men. Wall registered his third triple double of his career ( 14 pts 12 reb 11 ast) his last triple double came against the Celtics this past January.

- Washington is the second best three point shooting team in the NBA behind the Spurs and have four players that have made over 100 three pointers this season. It was difficult to watch the solid three point shooting squad shoot just 1-15 from long range. Wall did mention after the game your not going to win any games shooting from downtown like that, especially when your first three comes in the fourth quarter.

- Marcin Gortat was a force on the inside once again and keeps showing he was quite the acquisition this past offseason. Gortat finished with 27 points and 14 rebounds which makes up for his 34th double-double this season. Antawn Jamison was the last Wizards player to have over 34 double-doubles in season when he had 38 during the 2008-09 season.

- Nene was back in action for the first time since his injury against Cleveland this past February. He was certainly rusty at first, but he eventually started to find his groove. After the game, Nene mentioned the staff said he looked good throughout the game so his minutes per game will be something to monitor the rest of the way.

- Bradley Beal and Trevor Ariza were the players on the floor who struggled the most tonight. Beal finished with just 8 points and was 4-15 from the field. Trevor Ariza was 0-6 on the night and failed to score one point. If Beal and Ariza go for a combined 4-21 from the field in a game, the Wizards chances of winning will never be good.

B&B Rapid Fire: Lewan, Vick, Schaub, Jackson & More

B&B Rapid Fire: Lewan, Vick, Schaub, Jackson & More

Posted on 25 March 2014 by Brett Dickinson

By: Brett Dickinson & Barry Kamen

Each week on the Brett & Barry Show (Saturdays 9am-12pm), we gather each others’ analysis on the biggest local and national stories and headlines of the week for a couple of minutes a piece in a segment we call Rapid Fire.  We post our responses in blog form every week to a visual version, with links to our segment in the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault.

LISTEN TO THE AUDIO SEGMENT HERE!

Brett 1: After an arrest in the middle of December, former Michigan offensive tackle and NFL draft prospect, Taylor Lewan, is facing three assault charges just months before the draft.  With the Ravens arrest total rising this off season, along with the controversy over Richie Incognito and the Miami Dolphins last season, should Ozzie Newsome consider drafting the guy with such a checkered past?

The Ravens organization has not been afraid of taking a chance on players with legal issues, as Ray Lewis, Jamal Lewis, Donte Stallworth, and Rolando McClain all come to mind. Taylor Lewan’s overall talent and willingness to discuss the incident with NFL teams, makes him worth the risk. Lewan is a top 10 talent, and if he were to fall to the Ravens at pick 17, it is a no-brainer. Plug Lewan in at right tackle, and the Ravens will have turned last year’s biggest weakness into a strength.

Devin HesterBarry 1: Week 2 of NFL free agency is officially in the books, with the second tier of available players signing on with their new teams. Is there one move from last week that stands out as significant, whether good or bad?

BD: I thought the that a couple teams have made nice under the radar moves as of late.  Though it may not be for huge contracts, the Atlanta Falcons adding return specialist Devin Hester and offensive guard Jon Asamoah, were great additions.  Hester is still the best return man in the game, even though he may not have many touchdowns, he will put the offense in good starting field position consistently.  Asamoah just made sense as an upgrade for their line that desperately needed.

Other moves I like include: WR James Jones to the Oakland Raiders, CB Walter Thurmond to the New York Giants and CB Antonio Cromartie to the Arizona Cardinals.

Mike Vick JetsBrett 2: Speaking of free agency, probably the “biggest named” quarterback, Michael Vick, left the Philadelphia Eagles to sign on with Rex Ryan and the New York Jets.  The much maligned signal caller has struggled the past couple seasons, before eventually losing his starting job to Nick Foles.  He now is trying to supplant Geno Smith as the starter for “Gang Green.”  Do you think this was the best fit for Vick and the Jets?

The Michael Vick signing is extremely confusing to me. As mentioned, the Jets spent a high 2nd round pick on Geno Smith, and despite his struggles and multiple injuries to the wide receiver position, finished 8-8. Signing Vick makes it clear that the Jets do not have full faith in Smith as their franchise quarterback, yet Vick cannot be relied on to be healthy for an entire season. The Jets love to make headlines with their  quarterback signings (Brett Favre, Tim Tebow, Vick), but I think the signing will be regrettable. The Jets need continuity, not publicity, at the quarterback position.

Matt Schaub RaidersBarry 2: Matt Schaub was another quarterback on the move, as the Houston Texans traded him to the Oakland Raiders for a late round pick.  For most of his career, he was pretty successful, until last year’s debacle of a season for the entire team. Can the Schaub trade enough to bring the Raiders back to relevance?

BD: This move is not about putting the Raiders over the top and back into contention. It was more about finding a veteran to hold down the position, so that Oakland is not forced to reach on one of the first round quarterback prospects.  Schaub has been decent for most of his career and now the team can focus on putting talent around that position, before bringing in a franchise player via the draft within the next couple seasons. Does Schaub make this team better? YES. But he is still probably the worst quarterback in a division that includes: Peyton Manning, Phillip Rivers and Alex Smith.

Phil Jackson KnicksBrett 3: The New York Knicks have officially brought in former Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers head coach, Phil Jackson, as their President of Basketball Operations.  Do you think this marriage will end with Jackson taking the Knicks back to the promised land with a NBA championship?

Phil Jackson’s triumphant return will make the New York Knicks a much better franchise because of the respect he has earned from his years as a coach. While the Knicks have very few pieces to build around, Jackson has stood by F Carmelo Anthony, providing the star player with much-needed confidence and stability.

I do not think that the Knicks will win a championship with Jackson as president. The Pacers and the Heat are set up to be the class of the Eastern conference for the foreseeable future, and the only way to intrigue free agents will be for Jackson to return to the sidelines and coach. With all signs pointing to Steve Kerr becoming the Knicks coach, the team will be much improved, but Carmelo Anthony’s style of play will have to change if he ever wants to add a ring to his resume.

Steve FischerBarry 3: After the first round match up in the NCAA Tournament, where San Diego State defeated New Mexico State in overtime after midnight, the losing NMSU was forced immediately on a plane to go home. SDSU head coach Steve Fischer had some poignant comments about the situation, saying the NCAA was “disgraceful” by their actions (Watch the post game interview HERE).  Do you agree with Fischer that NMSU should have been the opportunity to stay the night after such hard fought late night game?

BD: I could not agree with Fischer more, as I think it was bush-league to shovel off a losing team so late in the night.  We are not talking about them finishing in the middle of the day; it was the middle of the night.  Those kids just laid everything out on the court, not only for themselves, but benefiting the TV ratings for the NCAA! They deserved better and I am not surprised they did not get it from such a narrowed-minded organization. If I had any money to bet, I would put the bank on the fact that the NCAA changes this scenario as soon as next year.

B&B Rapid Fire: Schoop, Santana, McClain & More

B&B Rapid Fire: Schoop, Santana, McClain & More

Posted on 18 March 2014 by Brett Dickinson

Each week on the Brett & Barry Show (Saturdays 9am-12pm), we gather each others’ analysis on the biggest local and national stories and headlines of the week for a couple of minutes a piece in a segment we call Rapid Fire.  We post our responses in blog form every week to a visual version, with links to our segment in the BuyAToyota.com Audio Vault.

LISTEN TO THE AUDIO SEGMENT HERE

 

Barry 1: As the Baltimore Orioles continue with spring training games in Florida, the Opening Day roster has started to take shape. South Korean P Suk-Min Yoon will start the year in Norfolk, and 3B Manny Machado appears headed for the DL to begin the season. The one major unknown for the Orioles is what they will do with prospect Jonathan Schoop, who has had a fantastic spring (.423 BA, .692 SLG, 6 RBIs). What are the chances that Schoop, the Orioles top position prospect, is on the Opening Day roster?

 

BD: Though I think he may be the best option by the time the Spring Training is complete, I think the Orioles will exercise patience with their best positional prospect at this point.  They do not want to hurt his confidence, as well as affect his service time clock.  They may be more inclined to follow the Manny Machado path with Schoop, bringing him up around the All-Star break.  Now with the injury concerns at third base, anything is possible, though I think they exhaust all other options before possibly using Schoop.

 

Ervin SantanaBrett 1: After many reports had the Baltimore Orioles as the favorites to win the Ervin Santana sweepstakes, he landed with the Atlanta Braves. Key injuries to the rotation forced them to get serious about adding a pitcher, signing the free agent to a one year $14.1 Million deal.  With thoughts being the Orioles were only willing to give Santana $13 Million deal, did they drop the ball on adding another quality starting arm?

 

BK: I am slightly disappointed that the Orioles did not go harder for Santana, but the fact that Santana signed with the Braves lessens the blow. Initial reports had the Santana sweepstakes limited to the Blue Jays and the Orioles, but the recent injuries to Atlanta’s rotation made sense for both sides. Had the Orioles lost out to their AL East foes, different story. Santana will have a better chance of extending his career and commanding a long-term deal by playing in the NL East, where a percentage of his starts will come against the Marlins, Mets, and Phillies.

 

Rolando McClain ArrestBarry 2: On Twitter, former Alabama and Oakland Raider LB Rolando McClain has hinted at a return to the NFL. Last season, the Baltimore Ravens signed McClain, only to have him retire following an arrest that happened just two weeks after becoming a Raven. McClain is only 24, and appears to be in a much better mental state than he ever was as an NFL player. With the Ravens having the rights to Rolando McClain, can he be a contributor to the Ravens defense?

 

BD: The key to your question was ‘CAN’ he contribute.  He may come back to the NFL with a new found enthusiasm towards the game; a willingness to put the game first in his life.  He is certainly young enough and I feel the same way about him, as I did last year.  It is worth a shot; give him a Training Camp invite and see what he has left.  But I would not bank on him making the roster, though if he does, he would have earned his spot.

 

Rodger SaffoldBrett 2: St. Louis Rams free agent offensive tackle, Rodger Saffold, initially agreed to a five year $42 Million deal with the Oakland Raiders.  Only to have that mega-deal voided after he reported failed a physical.  Since then he resigned with the Rams for much less money (five years $37 Million).  Did the Raiders void Saffold’s deal just to get out of a bad contract considering the market value for other players that signed this off season?

 

BK: This story is way more bizarre than anything that the Orioles’ doctors did this offseason. The Raiders were concerned with a shoulder injury that Saffold had, while the Rams found no such injury. For the Raiders, the failed physical leaves the team out of a thin left tackle market, with all of the marquee free agents off of the market. Saffold’s return to the Rams also has a major impact on the NFL Draft. The Raiders will be in the market for either LT Greg Robinson or Jake Matthews, while the Rams can turn their attention to WR Sammy Watkins or DE Jadaveon Clowney.

 

Richard Sherman DeAngelo HallBarry 3: Amidst all of the NFL free agent signings, two of the more brash players in the NFL were making headlines for a different reason. Seattle CB Richard Sherman and Washington CB DeAngelo Hall got into a war of words on Twitter (you can read the whole conversation HERE), with Hall questioning Sherman’s skills. What do you make of the Twitter beef between these two divas?

 

BD: I saw these reports and then followed the actual conversation.  I instantly thought I was wasting my time, as these players are just going to talk.  I do think Richard Sherman has the right to call himself the best cornerback in football, because he has proved so on the field.  For DeAngelo Hall to try to argue that fact is simply nonsense, as a player that has been terrible for several years now.  Though it was entertaining for about 30 seconds, it means nothing, as Sherman has a Super Bowl ring and DeAngelo Hall is still stealing money from the Redskins.

 

Steve Nash LakersBrett 3: Steve Nash has officially been shut down for the season by the Los Angeles Lakers, as he played in only 10 games due to back/neck injuries.  With still almost $10 Million dollars due to him next season, Nash says he will not retire because he wants the money. Do you think this is the right move for the former MVP?

BK: Steve Nash’s time with the Lakers has been extremely disappointing, and it is a shame that his body has failed him over the past few seasons. It makes sense for Nash to stick around for as long as he can. The Lakers are in the process of rebuilding, so there is a good chance that Nash will play elsewhere. Could Nash be the missing piece off of the bench for a contender, similar to Derek Fisher? We shall wait and see.

“After looking at the rest of the schedule for the Philadelphia 76ers, it is possible that they will not be favored in any games for the rest of the regular season. We currently have them projected as small underdogs for their home game against Utah on Saturday. Seeing as Utah is probably one of the weaker teams left on their schedule, and they are still not favorites to win, we think the Sixers may be barking the rest of the season.”

I apparently made a mistake and included Cecily Strong last week instead of this week. “Oh no, more Cecily Strong in T10BD? That’s terrible” said no one in response.

O’Brien has actually had some nice highlights in his first year as a player as well.

Dru Hill was so much more important to my childhood than I should ever admit.

Delta Rae is freaking wonderful. Here’s a night I saw them at Rams Head Live and FELL IN STINKING LOVE.

You might not be familiar with Lake Street Dive. But perhaps you’ve seen this wonderful video.

I saw Sister Sparrow in Brooklyn during Super Bowl week. They played Led Zeppelin IV in its’ entirety. I’m certainly glad they did.
