On the other side of the ball, Dirk Nowitzki attempts to lead the Mavericks back into the postseason again after they won the NBA Finals a few years back.

Boston Celtics vs Indiana Pacers NBA game tonight: time TV live stream

The Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers face off tonight in a game with NBA playoff implications for both teams. The Celtics are currently in ninth place in the Eastern Conference standings, half a game out of the postseason seeding. The Pacers are in tenth place in the standings, one game behind the Celtics, and can flip that with a win. Tonight’s game has an early start time and airs on a niche TV channel alongside a live stream online option.

Boston is 33-41 in a season which was expected to be a rebuilding year as the team attempts to transition from the departure of former stars like Rajon Rondo into a new and more youth oriented lineup, but the Celtics have won just enough games to nearly qualify for the bottom rungs of the NBA’s generous number of playoff berths. Indiana is 32-42 on the season and wasn’t expected to do anything of note after losing star Paul George in a freak accident in international competition, but now the team is hoping to eek into the postseason where George may be able to rejoin them for a late push.

Tonight’s Boston Celtics vs Indiana Pacers NBA basketball game has a start time schedule of 7:30pm eastern time and airs on TV channel NBA TV. The game is also available as a live stream online at nba-steam.com and similar sites.

Miami Dolphins 2015 NFL Draft: can they afford Todd Gurley?

Will Todd Gurley be wearing the Miami Dolphins orange and aqua colors in 2015? The Dolphins need a running back to pair with Lamar Miller, and they haven’t yet been able to find that answer in free agency – and Gurley needs a team willing to take a chance on his surgically repaired knee. But heading into the NFL Draft, the Dolphins have a few more holes to fill than they were expecting. Which leads to the question of whether they can afford to use their first pick on a running back.

The Dolphins are set at quarterback, and while they have issues at offensive guard, they don’t necessarily need to solve them in the first round of the draft. They need one more playmaker at wide receiver, but again that doesn’t have to be first round material; their best receiver Jarvis Landry was taken in the second round last year. But suddenly there is a Charles Clay sized hole at tight end, and Miami must decide how to fill it as well. And that’s before getting to ongoing holes at linebacker and cornerback, neither of which were solved in early free agency, even as the team spent big on Ndamukong Suh.

Which comes back to the question of whether Todd Gurley is a viable option in the list of Miami Dolphins priorities. Lamar Miller has proven he can be effective but only for a limited number of carries per game before his average drops off sharply. So the team needs another running back alongside him. But the roster also has more pressing issues.
