Jim Boylen era off to rough start for the Bulls as players threaten to boycott practice

The Chicago Bulls aren’t doing well, and that’s a nice way to describe what’s going on in Chicago. After the firing of Fred Hoiberg, the Bulls turned to Jim Boylen, and his first week was rough. The Bulls lost to the Celtics by 56 points days after firing Hoiberg, and now there are reports of players wanting to boycott practice.

The Bulls are young, and they’re 6-21 this year. That takes a toll on young players’ mentalities. To make matters worse, the Bulls seem to be committed to Boylen beyond this season, so this isn’t a bridge situation. Lauri Markkanen and Wendell Carter Jr. seem like the only pieces worth building around, and it looks like things are going to get worse before they get better.

On Monday’s “Off the Bench” podcast, Danny Kanell and Raja Bell react to

Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo on avoiding workouts with other NBA stars: I don't 'buddy-buddy' with my opponents

A lot of NBA stars work out together during the offseason, but Milwaukee Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo isn’t with that trend. When Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, James Harden and other NBA players played pickup ball in New York over the summer, Antetokounmpo turned down an invitation. 

“They wanted me to come, show up, and play and I was like, ‘No. I’m good,'” Antetokounmpo said, via The Athletic. “‘Thank you.'” 

The way Antetokounmpo sees it, it just doesn’t feel right to work out with guys that he will be competing directly against in a matter of months. 

“I can’t work out with you in the summer and then play you in a few months,” Antetokounmpo said. “It feels weird. It doesn’t feel right with me. Like other players, it’s cool for other players, but I don’t. I don’t

Here are all the broadcast calls from the Dolphins' 'Miracle in Miami' that beat the Patriots

Whenever there’s an incredible and dramatic finish to a sporting event, it’s always interesting to examine how different broadcasts approached the moment and how they reacted as it developed.

With the Dolphins beating the Patriots on the strength of a stunning final play in Miami on Sunday, it was a good bet that the highlight would bring an excellent array of play-by-play calls in its aftermath. It would be hard to blame anyone if they were at a loss of words as they watched Kenyan Drake punch in the 69-yard touchdown as time expired, but those who were behind the mic for Sunday’s thrilling conclusion managed to do a pretty good job of providing commentary.

Here you can find the radio calls from both the home and away markets, plus the national television broadcast and the Spanish language broadcast.

Preview: Magic try to pull out of recent slump against Mavericks

TV: FOX Sports Florida TIME: Pregame coverage begins at 8 p.m.


Dallas called on a couple of its youngest down the stretch on Saturday, and, man did they produce.

Rookies Luka Doncic and Jalen Brunson combined for the final 15 Dallas points when the Mavericks won their ninth straight home game in a 107-104 victory over Houston to improve to 11-2 at American Airlines Center.

Orlando will provide the next test Monday, although the Magic have struggled recently. The Magic have lost four of their last six after a 22-point loss at home to Indiana on Friday and have lost six of nine since going a season-high one game over .500 in the jumbled Southeast Division.

Both teams started a little slowly, but the Mavericks have blown past that while winning 10 of 13.

“Analyzing streaks is not my bag,” Dallas coach

Preview: Heat try to remain hot in LA as Dwyane Wade faces off against LeBron James for final time

TV: FOX Sports Sun TIME: Pregame coverage begins at 10 p.m.


The Miami Heat have won four of five for the first time this season and they’ll try to stay on a roll when they visit the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Monday.

The Heat (11-14) are coming off back-to-back double-digit road wins against the Phoenix Suns on Friday and the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.

The Lakers (16-10) will also be playing their third game in four days after losing at the San Antonio Spurs on Friday and winning at the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. Los Angeles has won five of its past six.

The Lakers beat the Heat 113-97 in Miami on Nov. 18.

Lakers forward LeBron James scored a season-high 51 points in his return to Miami, where he played four seasons, reaching the 50-point mark for

Report Card: Grading the Steelers’ 24-21 loss to the Raiders in Week 14

BTSC breaks out the red pen and assigns grades to the Steelers after their head-scratching loss in Oaktown.

The Steelers were attempting to get back on track against a 2-10 opponent on the road and it’s time to see if they made the grade or if a letter is going home to their parents, Spoiler alert…they didn’t and one will.

Despite my less than prestigious BTSC teaching certificate, I have to issue the necessary disclaimer. You know the story; of course, I’m not a football coach, or a teacher, but I play one in blogs and podcasts. All week, I found myself noticing just how equal the two teams actually are and that shows in their respective records. And then I realized that these teams both usually battle fiercely in tight contests. Then the game happened and judgments followed.

Grading games is an extremely difficult and somewhat thankless task. While the coaches’ grades, of course, are what count the most, the media and fans can’t help but evaluate as well.

So let’s take a look at BTSC’s early perceptions:

Offense: C-

Ben Roethlisberger was 25/29 with 2 TDs and it doesn’t matter that his stat line was prettier than his actual play on the field, because he was great when he came back in late in the game. Why Josh Dobbs (a pitiful 4/9 for 24 yards and an interception) stayed in so long even after Ben was medically cleared is a mystery that can’t be answered with the ridiculousness of Mike Tomlin’s explanation, “We were in the flow of the game”.

Ben couldn’t account for the paltry running game either. James Conner’s absence was glaring. Stevan Ridley had four yards on five carries, while rookie Jaylen Samuels was a little better with 92 total yards (28 yards on 11 carries and 64 yards receiving), but not much. The offensive line was pretty good pass blocking, but couldn’t open holes against a team ranked 22nd in run defense.

AB had only five catches on seven targets. He should have been called upon more. The best performance on offense was put in by JuJu Smith-Schuster. No. 19 had eight catches for 130 yards and 2 scores.

Defense: F

The defensive line continues to play well with Cam Heyward, Javon Hargrave and Stephon Tuitt put pressure on Derek Carr and engulfed ball carriers. TJ Watt and Bud Dupree were very good as well. Then there was the inside linebackers and the secondary. Simply put…Horrendous. They were dominated by TEs that went for 108 yards against them. When you continue to blow leads, it’s a problem that isn’t being addressed properly. This team folds when it needs a big stop.

Special Teams: D-

Not special at all. Berry had a decent first punt, but was poor after that. They weren’t getting penalized, that’s good. But Boswell cost the team another game. That’s unacceptable.

Overall Grade: F

While a lot of suspects could be pointed ar for losing to a 2-10 team, Mike Tomlin gets the lion’s share of the blame. Call timeouts and play your franchise quarterback. It’s that simple. This was a huge opportunity lost and it isn’t acceptable.

PREVIEW: LA Clippers look to continue dominance over Suns (5:30p, Prime Ticket)


The Los Angeles Clippers had their way with the Phoenix Suns when it mattered most in their previous meeting this season, dominating the paint while pulling away to a 16-point victory almost two weeks ago.

Consider it part of the education of Suns center Deandre Ayton, the 7-foot piece of their future.

And although the Clippers are in a mini-skid since stopping the Suns 115-99 on Nov. 28, the Suns have been going through much worse heading into Monday’s game.

— LA Clippers (@LAClippers) December 10, 2018

Phoenix (4-22) has lost eight in a row, 11 of 12 and is off to the worst start in franchise history.

The Clippers dominated the boards in the previous meeting in Los Angeles, rolling up a 56-34 rebounding edge.

How dominant?
