NBA Opening Day Oct. 19,2021: Results

Bucks defeat the Nets 104-127

Top scorer for each team:

Nets: Kevin Durant – 32 points, 4 Ast and 11 Rebounds

Bucks: Giannis Antetokounmpo – 32 points, 7 Ast and 14

This game was absolutely breath taking, and that could be more to being excited to watch the very first game of the season. This game wasn’t the best in terms of back and forth battles between the two teams. This matchup really showed how dominate Giannis is going to be this season, the Nets just could not catch up at any point in this game.

The Nets badly needed Kyrie tonight, or if not Kyrie they needed a quality guard to take over while hes gone. Things are going to jell for the Nets due to being without him, and having a new bench behind them. So no need to worry.

Warriors defeat the Lakers: 121-114

Top scorer for each team:

Warriors: Stephen Curry – 21 points, 10 rebounds and Ast

Lakers: Lebron James – 34 points, 5 Ast and 11 Rebounds

What a game, it was all Lakers until the 4th quarter where the Lakers just went ghost and let Curry and Poole dominate. Lebron James and Anthony Davis played incredibly well tonight, while russ kind of lagged them behind. He played terrible tonight, and i would hope that he would be keen on getting his groove back quick because this season is going to go by fast. Obviously, this team still needs time to jell. But the Lakers have not won a game with this new team yet, and thats including the preseason games.

Player of the night and Play of the night

Lebron James:

NBA Opening Day Oct. 19,2021: Predictions, Preview, Schedule

TODAY IS THE DAY! THE RETURN OF THE NBA!! This is going to be a great night of basketball! Now let’s get to the games on the dock.

Nets vs Bucks

Time: 7:30pm Est

Predicted Winner: Nets

What a rematch we have on our hands here, the defending NBA champions from last season facing one of the best teams in the east in the Brooklyn Nets. This is going to be a scoring fest tonight, I fully expect KD and Harden to both get 30 tonight. With Giannis showing us how good hes become at the three-point shot, I’m very excited for this game.

Lakers vs Warriors

Time: 10pm Est

Predicted Winner: Warriors

Now, before this preseason/season started I would have picked the Lakers, but the way that the Warriors have managed to get young depth and build upon that with Jordan Poole, I expect them to play incredibly well. Even with Steph Curry it may not be enough to carry them to a high seed, but for the first game of the season I think its enough to beat the Lakers.

If I’m going by jus the preseason here, it seems to me like the Lakers are still learning the team. And they have every right too, the only players returning this season are Lebron, AD, and THT. So things are not going to click immediately but when they do, its going to be scary.

Monday Night Raw Oct. 18, 2021 Review

Xavier Woods vs Jinder Mahal

Xavier Woods wins by pinfall

A solid match to start off the night, this match did more for Jinder then it did for Xavier in my opinion. Jinder controlled the majoirty of the match until the end where Xavier Woods hit his finisher. I expect balor vs woods to be a great match on thursday. It would make sense for Xavier to win since hes the only one thats been pushed and seen as the front runner for this tournament.

Austin Theory vs Jeff Hardy

Austin Theory wins by pinfall

Another quick squash match for Theory, getting another win vs Hardy. This time though, Hardy was the one that got to take a selfie with a downed Theory. Im guessing this was his revenge.

Big E and Drew Mcintyre vs Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler

Big E and Drew McIntyre win by pinfall

Drew and Big E strategized this match to work together. at the start of this match, all the talk was can Big E and Drew be able to coexist with each other after what happened last week.

This match was more about the way these two were going to work together then about the action. A big ending won the match after a tag from Drew. At the end of the match these two argued and bickered, building more hype to this match on Thursday.

This is one of the matches that I’m excited about, two of my favorite wrestlers and seeing them at the top makes me happy, should be a great match and title defense from big E

Mansoor vs Cedric Alexander

Mansoor wins by pinfall

A match that helped bring hype to the Mansoor and Ali match, that will make history in Saudi as the first match between two Muslims in Saudi for WWE.

This win helped Mansoor atleast gain some momentum before Thursday. After the match Ali comes out and says he’s going to wipe “that stupid smile off of” Mansoor’s face in his hometown on Thursday.

Goldberg and Bobby Lashley interview

Goldberg talks again about wanting to kill Bobby for touching his son, and Bobby talks about this match ending the same way that Summer-slam ended with his on his back and his kids not able to help I’m. This time.

This was a decent interview, they basically reiterated what they have been saying the past few weeks. This feud is alright, but I do love that Bobby is still getting main event feuds while he’s not champion

Rk-Bro vs The Street Profits

Match ended in DQ

A great tag team match, the Street Profits return showed to pay dividends until the end of the match. Where we see Omas come out to aj styles music, and aj styles sneak attack from behind just as orton did to him.

Shayna Baszler vs Doudrop

Doudrop wins by pinfall

Wow! What a match, this was short and sweet. A quality match between these two woman that ended with Doudrop picking up the victory after getting out of Shayna’s lethal submission move

Finn Balor vs Mace

Finna Balor wins by pinfall

It was nice to see Mace in singles action tonight, even if it was a random matchup. Xavier Woods watched the entire match from the throne, watching his opponent for Thursday go to work on Mace.

Charlotte Flair vs Bianca for the Raw Womens Championship

A wrestlemania quality match that ended due to Charlotte flair using a chair at the very last minute. This was a solid match that shows how great both of these woman are.

Overall the show was alright. Nothing that will get people out of there seats and hyped. I fully expected Roman to show up but that didn’t happen.

Grade: C

AEW Dynamite: Saturday Night Dynamite Oct. 16, 2021

AEW tonight kicks off with CM Punk joining the announce team.

Dante Martin vs Malakai Black

Malakai Black wins by pinfall

This was an intensely technical and high flying match, Malakai Black suddenly has some rib issues, which cause him to break the hold and secure safety. Dante then has Malakai staggered, and he goes for a springboard move off one foot! BLACK MASS! Malakai Black wins!

Fantastic match to start off this special night of dynamite, from a match that was randomly booked and placed on this show due to a open challenge proposed by Dante Martin.

Grade: A

FTR vs The Lucha Brothers for the AAA tag team championships

FTR wins by pinfall

Throughout this entire match, the Lucha Bros have been trying to take the masks off of Las Super Ranas. They got the mask off, and it was reveled to be FTR. This was a great lucha bros styles match after getting the masks off. Near the end of the match, Tully came out and he distracts referee Aubrey Edwards. Harwood with one of the AAA tag titles! Belt shot connects! Brainbuster! And FTR wn the AAA tag titles!

Grade: A

Wheeler Yuta vs Jon Moxley

This match started out with Moxley absolutely destroying Yuta. Not letting him get up for even a breathe of fresh air. Jon made sure to make quick work with Yuta and defeats him in an incredibly fast match.

Grade: B

Young Bucks and Adam Cole vs Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds and John Silver

One thing i can say about AEW is that they know how to put on entertaining tag team matches. This match was as incredible as the AAA title match. In this match we saw how great each of these wrestlers are, even got a callback to Mick Foley’s mr socko. The Young Bucks and Cole was just too much for Evil Uno and the dark order.

After the match, we see jungle boy intrude after beating beat up in the backstage earlier in the night.

Grade: A+

Kiera Hogan vs Penelope Ford

Penelope Ford defeated Kiera Hogan

This was a match that saw two of the best woman wrestlers in AEW hash it out

Bryan Danielson vs Bobby Fish

Danielson wins by submission

My match of the night, this was a very technical match. Just as we seen from last night, Bryan has been wrestling in the style that he used to. Before WWE bryan was a tough and rugged wrestler and im happy we get to see that side of bryan here in AEW. After a highly contested match, we see Bobby Fish tap out to Danielson.

AEW Buy In and Rampage: Results and Review

BUY IN:

Tonight we start off with Taye Conti v Santana Garrett

A highly technical match between two talented woman in and out of AEW, Santana Garrett gets put into a Hammor-lock DDT and loses to Taye Conte. This now makes her record in 0-2.

Promo package building up American Top Team and Junior Dos Santos

This was a great promo package, hyping up the match betweenDan Lamberts group of UFC fighters, Jorge and Dos Santos

WWE Supersized Smackdown: Review and Results

Tonights Star studded smackdown starts with a Edge Promo

Edge recalls his past with Seth Rollins who tried to end his career for a second time. He talks about seth invading his home, and how he undermined edge and knows how great seth really is. He says that in the Hell In The Cell, he will ruin Seth Rollins soul and leave a soul he will never heel from.

This was a fantastic way to start off the night, with a promo hyping up one of the most anticipated feuds of all time

Grade: A +

Finn Balor vs Sami Zayn

Finn Balor wins by pinfall

What a great match, this is exactly what we expected a quality match between two of the best technical wrestlers in the world. Alot was on the line for both of these guys, the chance to be the new king of the ring. The last King of the ring winner was Baron Corbin two years ago.

This made shows both of these guys extensive movesets. Finn and Sami had a absolute battle, where we seen Finn Balor pick up the victory and move on the finals at Crown Jewel.

Grade: A

Paul Heyman alliance video package

We see the video package chronicling what has been going on between Roman, Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar. This was a fantastic package that shows how difficult of a position Paul Heyman is in. Including the hyped up match between rivals lesnar and roman.

Grade: A+

Naomi vs Sonya Deville and Shayna Baszler

Shayna Baszler and Sonya Deville win by pinfall

In a feud that has been building for months, Naomi finally gets to wrestle in a match again. Due to the frustration, Naomi wants to fight Sonya, both of these woman have not had a match in months. And since Sonya has been a manger role she hasn’t fought in 14 months.

Sonya comes out and tells the fans that her match is now a handicap, vs Shayna Baszler and Sonya Deville.

As the match goes on we see pure domination from Sonya and Shayna. Shayna ends the match by submission. Pure disrespect from these two to Sonya, this feud seems to be a trip to redemption for the former woman’s champion.

Grade: D

Seth Rollins responds to Edge

Seth says “hell has already frozen over” in California because Edge has not admitted is not “Edge Light” Ge feels like hes better than en Edge and every way Seth states that hes not intimidated to face edge inside the Hell in the cell. And states hes spent more time inside the HIAC than Edge has.

NBA Preseason Night 12: Predictions, Preview, Schedule

Heat vs Hawks

Time: 7pm Est

Predicted Winner: Heat

The Miami heat are on an unstoppable role right now, constantly winning and showing how the entire lineup has improved. They previously defeated the Hawks in their first game 125-99. The preseason game where we saw Tyler Herro prove doubters wrong and score 26 points in 26 minutes.

Timberwolves vs Nets

Time: 7:30pm est

Predicted Winner: Nets

The Nets have nothing to prove this preseason we already know how dominate they are, even without someone like kyrie irving. On the other hand, the Wolves have been fantastic, they have been able to win every single game so far. I expect this is continue into the regular season, but not tonight.

Nuggets vs Thunder

Time: 8pm Est

Predicted Winner: 8pm

Last night we saw a monster performance from Josh Giddy, hes got skills and you can’t look past it. Hes going to be special when it comes regular season time. 14 points, 3 Ast and Rebounds for the young guard.

Lakers vs Kings

Time: 10pm Est

Predicted Winner: Lakers The Lakers continue to change lineups and decide how they will play this regular season. This preseason though, they haven’t had many bright spots. With Malik Monk, Ariza and THT all going down in the matter of 5 games. 2 key bench players and a starter. This is what the Lakers expected though, just not in the preseason. Luckily they have depth

NBA Preseason Night 11: Results

Suns defeat the Trail Blazers – 119-74

Top scorer for each team:

Suns: Devin Booker – 17 points, 1 Ast and 3 Rebounds

Trail Blazers: Damian Lillard – 12 points, 2 Ast and 2 Rebounds

An absolute obliteration by the Suns, and this isn’t the only one tonight. Everything worked perfectly for the Suns tonight. These guys left everything out on the floor. For the Blazers, nothing was working for them the entire night. Even with their staple of Dame and CJ nothing helped. Dame was only able to score 12 points in 24 minutes. CJ also had a subpar night with 10 points in 25 minutes. When CJ and Dame are off this team needs help and they don’t have that yet

Mavs defeat the Hornets – 127-59

Top scorer for each team:

Mavs: Tim Hardaway Jr. – 20 points, 2 Ast and 4 Rebounds

Hornets: James Bouknight – 12 points, 1 Ast and Rebound

The Mavs torched the Hornets tonight, they just had 0 answers tonight. At one point the score was 101 to 104 in the 4th with 9:25. The biggest takeaway tonight was watching Tim Hardaway shine.

Pacers defeat the Grizzlies – 109-107

Top scorer for each team:

Pacers: Domantas Sabonis – 24 points, 4 Ast and 13 Rebounds

Grizzlies: Sam Merrill – 30 points, 2 Ast and 1 Rebound

Tonight, the Grizzlies showed how great there depth is, with Ja Morant and a good amount of their starters. The bench was able to show what they could do on the floor. Sam Merrill stamped his name tonight with 30 points, putting the scoring on his back. The Pacers were able to capitalize on this, in the end. Jeremy lamb hit a clutch 2 at 4 secs in the 4th to win the Pacers this hard-fought game.

Magic defeats the Celtics – 103-102

Top scorer for each team:

Magic: R. J. Hampton – 20 points, 2 Ast and 8 Rebounds

Celtics: Aaron Nesmith – 23 points, 4 Ast and 3 Rebounds

RJ Hampton remains one of my favorite young stars in the league, a guy that’s going to give you his all. His route to the NBA stumped some of his predictions coming into the league but he played exceptionally well with the Nuggets. And with the Magic this season he’s sure to set the team ablaze. Jeff Dowtin was able to win this close game for the Magic on a clutch 2 with 1 second left.

Knicks defeat the Pistons – 108-100

Top scorer for each team:

Knicks: Julius Randle – 29 points, 5 Ast and 11 Rebounds

Pistons: Jerami Grant – 18 points, 3 Ast and 4 Rebounds

The Knicks played lackadaisical in the first half, but after the coach of the year Tom Thibodeau rammed it into the Knicks players heads to start playing serious and get locked in on D. It was over, the second half of this game was ran by the Knicks. No matter what the score says, the Knicks were on the Pistons necks in the 3rd and 4th. Taj Gibson also had a great night tonight. Dropping 21 points 2 Ast and 9 Rebounds. Even scoring some threes in this game, which is rare to see from Taj these days.

Thunder defeats the Nuggets – 108-99

Top scorer for each team:

Thunder: Josh Giddey – 14 points, 3 Ast and 6 Rebounds

Nuggets: Nikola Jokić – 22 points, 5 Ast and 10 Rebounds

The thunder was on all figures tonight, something that we have not seen from the Nuggets this preseason. This was a great run for the Thunder where we saw, Josh Giddey, Luguentz Dort and Isaiah Roby all score 14 points tonight to help them defeat the Nuggets.

Jazz defeat the Bucks – 124-120

Top scorer for each team:

Jazz: Jordan Clarkson – 18 points, 2 Ast and 8 Rebounds

Bucks: Khris Middleton – 25 points, 3 Ast and 5 Rebounds

Jared Butler, what a great game. He is the biggest talking point from tonight, and my player of the night. This guy came from Baylor and proved that he can handle a team. Having a chip on his shoulder has been able to carry him on his way into the league. This Jazz team has a great SG to compliment with Mitchell. Butler dropped 16 points, 6 Ast and 3 rebounds. He was able to control this team in the 4th quarter to bring this win from a 8 point deficit to wining by 4.

My play of the night.

NBA Preseason Night 11: Predictions, Preview, Schedule

Blazers vs Suns

Time: 5pm Est

Predicted Winner: Suns

The Blazers play in their second to last preseason game tonight, and honestly I have so many questions for this team and franchise for that matter. How long will it take to get a team behind dame. Fans of the blazers ask themselves this every season, and every season nothing changes. It’s the same team, with little pieces added here and there. And then those pieces are snatched away from them in a yeae or two because this team has no foundation outside CJ and Dame.

Mavs vs Hornets

Time: 6:30pm Est

Predicted Winner: Mavs

The Mavs are currently 2-0 in their summer league and have looked impressive, in the win against the Clippers we were able to see KP and Luka back together. This season is going to be very interesting, because even though Luka is seen as the cornerstone for this franchise. How does that make KP really feel? Also how will Luka react when the Mavs make the playoffs again and potentially lose.

Grizzlies vs Pacers

Time: 7pm est

Predicted Winner: Grizzlies

As I have stated every single preseason preview, this team looks exceptional. Something that I myself has not said since the days of Mike Conley, Tony Allen and Marc Gasol. This team looks like it finally has some structure and depth behind Ja. Don’t be shocked if this team goes deep this year.

Celtics vs Magic

Time: 7pm est

Predicted Winner: Celtics

What more can you say about the Celtics, they just look unstoppable behind a healthy Jayson Tatum, last season the Celtics didn’t have their full core for the majority of the year. And when they did have them, majority of the team was coming back from having covid. Tatum has been

on the record, stating that after getting covid he just didn’t feel the same. This season, we are in store for a career year for Tatum.

Pistons vs Knicks

Time: 7:30pm est

Predicted Winner: Knicks

The Knicks looked strong in their win against the Wizards. Dominating the entire way, I expect this game to be the same. Especially since cade is still out and may not make it for the season opener.

Nuggets vs Thunder

Time: 8pm est

Predicted Winner: Nuggets

The Nuggets have lost all of their games coming into the preseason, none of that matters though. This team is still figuring out the kinks and not even using there full roster. I fully expect this game to be a easy win for the Nuggets.

Bucks vs Jazz

Time: 9pm Est

Predicted Winner: Bucks

My game of the night, this is going to be a slobber knocker. Two of the best teams in the league going at it in preseason. The NBA season is gearing back around, and this matchup is just giving us a taste of what we could possibly see in the NBA finals.
