Video: Watch Stephen Curry Light Up The Clippers

Matt Barnes, Stephen Curry

First, the Clippers didn’t dress Blake Griffin or Chris Paul for last night’s game against the Warriors. Second, Stephen Curry had six turnovers to match his six assists in the 125-107 stomping of LA. Third, Steph dropped 27 on the “BGCP3“-less Clippers, by going 4-of-5 from the beyond the arc in a little over 30 minutes of action. Fourth, lists don’t accurately show how casually Steph can dominate a game like he did last night. Read More »

Video: Relatively Spry Paul George Plays One-On-One… Against His Dog

Paul George

And the remarkable recovery of Paul George from an early August compound fracture continues. After surprising by walking without crutches or a boot at media day three weeks ago and taking easy three-pointers at his team’s practice facility yesterday, the Indiana Pacers superstar took a huge step in his rehabilitation on Tuesday – by playing one-on-one against his dog.

Watch Entire Bulls Team Rush To Help Derrick Rose

Kyrie Irving, Derrick Rose

We all know Derrick Rose handily won his ostensible duel against Kyrie Irving last night during Chicago’s preseason game against Cleveland. Irving couldn’t handle Rose and we doubt anyone else could, either. Even with a game-high 30 points, everyone is holding their breath for the other shoe to drop with Rose and that was most clearly evident when he toppled to the court near the end of his electrifying first half.

Video: Sixers Rookie K.J. McDaniels Rises For Huge Two-Handed Block On Break

K.J. McDaniels

The draft-night slide of Philadelphia 76ers rookie K.J. McDaniels never made sense. Projected by some as a late-lottery pick at certain points leading up to June 26, the University of Clemson product inexplicably fell to the top of the second round before being quickly snatched up by Philly GM Sam Hinkie. A few months later and to no one’s great surprise, McDaniels is proving his draft slot wrong with flashes of dominant defensive potential during the preseason, and his latest one might be hist best: A huge, two-handed, chase-down block of the Brooklyn Nets’ Alan Anderson.

GIF: Tyreke Evans Performs Impressive “Moonwalk” Travel That Goes Uncalled

Tyreke Evans, Nene

It’s hard to be an NBA ref. We try our best to give them the benefit of the doubt, but they’re often found by fans to be lacking. Last night, when Anthony Davis was busy destroying the Wizards, his teammate, Tyreke Evans, performed an egregious travel of at least four steps backwards in an impressive moonwalk display that went completely unnoticed by the refs.

Video: Derrick Rose & Kyrie Irving Duel During Cavs – Bulls Preseason Battle

Kyrie Irving, Derrick Rose

Lets hope the offensive explosion from Derrick Rose last night against Cleveland was just a harbinger of things to come. On the receiving end of Rose’s open court brilliance was Cavs point guard, Kyrie Irving. But it was the man behind Uncle Drew who had the last laugh with a huge second half as the two young point guards showed whey they’ll — hopefully — continue to dazzle us for the next decade.

GIF: Quincy Acy Almost Tears The Rim Down

Quincy Acy

The Knicks gave up 120 points to the Bucks tonight in a 120-107 loss and Jabari Parker didn’t even have a great game. Fortunately, expectations are low for the Knicks this season — though, not according to the people we follow on Twitter. With that in mind, it’s best to just focus on any improvements. Regardless of New York’s troubles, Quincy Acy did his best to try and rip the iron off the backboard on a dunk that’s making the poor rim at MSG continue to vibrate in fear. Read More »

GIFs: Derrick Rose Continues To Abuse Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers

Derrick Rose

After pouring in 20 first half points against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Derrick Rose picked up right where he left off by scoring a quick seven points in the opening minutes of the third quarter. Among them were two finishes through and around fellow All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving. Read More »

GIF: Dwight Howard Spins For The Towering Slam

Dwight Howard

Before last night, Dwight Howard had yet to suit up in a Rockets uniform during preseason action. He only played 16 minutes in the first half during his first time out against the Warriors Sunday night, but an athletic dunk in the pregame layup-line, and a silky spin move and slam on Ognjen Kuzmic during the game, should make Rockets fans breathe easy after questions about his health have kept him out of preseason action since training camps opened.

Video: Watch Alec Burks Embarrass Kobe Bryant, Lakers With Sick Crossover

Kobe Bryant, Alec Burks

Kobe Bryant might still be an offensive force, but his play on the other end has quietly been a liability for the past few seasons. If the Los Angeles Lakers tasked their living legend with defending top-tier wings instead of the opponent’s worst perimeter threat, his defensive deficiencies would be common knowledge. This epic crossover by Alec Burks that left Kobe and his teammates embarrassed are further of evidence that sad reality. Read More »
