Blake Griffin has been on quite a tear these last few weeks, seemingly unloading some vicious dunk (or two) on some opposing player almost every single night.
Last night in Indiana kept true to the schedule, with Blake detonating a lefty dunk on the Pacers’ Ian Mahinmi. Ian is no little guard getting caught on the break – the Indiana big man goes 6-11, 230 pounds. And yet, when he collides with Griffin, Blake continues to elevate and dunk with his off hand.

Yes, we 100% realize that this story would be better if the Golden State Warriors had actually won the game last against the New York Knicks, but even crustiest of commenters can recognize that what Stephen Curry did under the bright lights at MSG was amazing.
Steph rampaged his way to a career-high 54 points on an avalanche of threes, pull-up jumpers and smooth forays into the lane. Good look by the NBA being on top of it, producing these two videos documenting Curry’s performance. Read More »

How hot was Stephen Curry last night in Madison Square Garden? He said afterward that his teammates were treating him like a pitcher in the middle of a no-hitter. No one would speak to him. It worked for most of the night. Curry was a savage, scoring 54 points and making 11 of 13 three-pointers. Read More »

The NBA regular season stretches from Halloween until the middle of April. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. The Pacers and Knicks are both learning that quickly this year. New York, boosted by some incredible shooting and a rejuvenated Carmelo Anthony, sprinted out of the gates, starting 6-0 and eventually 18-5. Read More »

It wasn’t exactly reaching Malice at the Palace levels, but the brawl that spilled into the stands last night during Indiana’s 108-97 win over the Warriors will certainly result in some special spankings from the league office.

You want to know why that Lakers win in Dallas was so big? Any sensible L.A. fan knows whenever they go to Denver, they get spit back out like spoiled food. With time running out and Houston not looking like they’re going to fall apart anytime soon, the Lakers can’t afford anymore mishaps. Their 119-108 loss to the Nuggets doesn’t count as as screwup – Denver just had it rolling. Read More »
Timofey Mozgov, the man whose very name is synonymous with getting obliterated with highlight reel dunks, caught a real beauty last night from the Raptors’ DeMar DeRozan. Read More »

We can just imagine Memphis head coach Lionel Hollins shaking his head. So you’re telling me you’re trading Rudy Gay and our first game without him is against Oklahoma City? Yes, and it wasn’t pretty, a small Grizzlies comeback notwithstanding in the second half Thursday in OKC’s 106-89 win. Memphis tied a season-low by scoring 34 points in the first half and fell behind by 25 because of a combination of OKC being freakishly good and the Grizzlies playing with zero energy and looking like someone just kicked their dog.

[UPDATE: ESPN is reporting that a deal has been reached. Marc Stein is saying that it's a three-team deal with Rudy Gay and Hamed Haddadi going to the Raptors, the Grizzlies get Ed Davis, Tayshaun Prince, Austin Daye and a 2nd Round pick, and the Pistons get Jose Calderon.]
The Rudy Gay trade saga now seems to be dragging on about as long as the whole excruciating Dwight Howard epic from last summer, doesn’t it? Now, it would seem, that saga may actually be close to ending.
The one team that seems to consistently remain in the Rudy Gay hunt are the Toronto Raptors and it looks like they may be about to acquire their guy. Read More »
Unless you’re a huge Conference USA fan, we are going to assume that you probably didn’t see the UTEP/East Carolina game over the weekend. Apparently it got heated.
Watch ECU’s Shamarr Bowden let fly with not one, but two punches at UTEP’s Konner Tucker‘s face while Tucker was lying on the ground in the middle of the game. Read More »
