Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s fastest-selling console

  Nintendo Switch is Nintendo’s fastest-selling console <p>And Breath of the Wild outsold the Switch somehow?</p>The Nintendo Switch system sold more than 906,000 units in March, according to the NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States. That makes Nintendo Switch one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time. Notably, this sales surge was accomplished in a nontraditional month for a console launch.

Congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

After 50 games of coasting through the regular season, LeBron James’ squad decided to show up to work in its playoff opener.

Cleveland let the Indiana Pacers hang around for the first half of Game 1 on Saturday, as neither team showed any interesting in stopping the other. But in the third quarter, the Cavs scrapped like Matthew Dellavedova was still in town and turned a couple defensive stands into a double-digit lead and an eventual 109-108 win.

Nintendo's fastest-selling console ever couldn't top 'Zelda'

  Nintendo's fastest-selling console ever couldn't top 'Zelda' Nintendo has been proclaiming that the Switch is its fastest-selling console ever since the system launched, but now it has numbers to back that up. Based on NPD reports, it says the Switch sold 906,000 units in the US in March. What's surprising, however, is that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is not just its fastest-selling launch title of all time, its Switch version actually outsold the console, moving 925,000 copies (add 460,000 for the Wii U and you have 1.3 million total). According to Nintendo, reaching an attach rate of over 100 percent could be attributed to people buying limited editions of the game to collect plus a second copy to play. Whatever it is, the game, and system, both sold well and it sounds like things are well on their way to meeting or beating Nintendo's scaled-back projections. We should find out more about its worldwide sales performance when Nintendo issues its quarterly earnings report on April 27th.

You can see it with your own eyes. The Cavs finally — finally — made an effort on defense. They recognized all that disrespectful nonsense they pulled in the regular season is in the past. They buckled down and played like champions when it mattered most.

Yet they didn’t flip the switch.

Deciding you care about the outcome of a game is a step in the right direction. Giving your all all on every possession is even better.

Contrary to what you might have heard, though, NBA defense isn’t just about trying hard.

Kevin Garnett wasn’t one of the all-time greats because he yelled the loudest and wanted to fight everyone on every possession. He combined heart with intelligence, communication, and a hard-earned understanding of what every opponent wanted to do on offense.

Playoff LeBron is back, and he’s as glorious as usual

  Playoff LeBron is back, and he’s as glorious as usual LeBron James averaged 26.4 points, 8.7 rebounds and 8.6 assists per game this season while shooting 54.8 percent from the field. And somehow it still kind of felt like he was coasting. Now the playoffs are here, which means it’s time for LeBron to kick it into high gear.&nbsp;And somehow it still kind of felt like he was coasting.

Intensity alone gets you only halfway there. An elite defense has to scheme well, then execute that scheme consistently. How do you want to handle the pick-and-roll? Do you send a ball-handler toward the baseline on the strongside, or do you need to account for the shooter sliding to the 3-point line? Who helps when the ball gets into the paint — and who helps the helper?

No amount of elbow grease can solve those questions, but if you want to win a title, you’d better have answers. Engaged or not, the Cavaliers are still a long way away from that kind of cohesion.

They made every effort to stop the Pacers in the pick-and-roll, after all, and the results were disastrous. Indiana got whatever it wanted as Cleveland tried to remember how to work as a unit against the most basic of basketball actions. Even LeBron, doing his best KG impersonation, shouted for teammates to rotate to the wrong player on multiple occasions.

Even on that final defensive possession, where the Cavaliers hounded Paul George and kept him from beating them, they allowed an open look (or two).

Cleveland locked in — and lucked out.

So no, the Cavaliers haven’t flipped the switch just because they’re trying. They’re like a fifth grader jolted out of a deep slumber by an all-too-real nightmare, stumbling through the dark and flailing limbs in the switch’s general direction. They’ll find the light eventually, but it will take time.

The upside? When you have the best player in the world on your team — a guy who does things like this …

… or this, you have about three rounds’ worth of playoff games to figure things out:

The Cavs won’t be content with a one-point Game 1 win. They know there’s still work to do.

Here's Why Nintendo Canceled The NES Classic .
Nintendo's plans to place the NES Classic Edition on hold were a surprise, but they make sense when you evaluate the company's current hardware strategy.When Nintendo last year released the NES Classic — the $60 reissue of its original Nintendo Entertainment System console —  the retro reboot immediately became a must-have holiday item. Stores were regularly out of stock, and consoles that got purchased often made it to the third-party seller market at substantial markups.
