Video: Brandan Wright Smashes On Luis Scola

Luis Scola, Brandan Wright

The Pacers got a surprising 111-100 win over the Mavericks in Dallas last night. Guard Donald Sloan played the game of his life — 29 points on 10-for-14 shooting — and a well—rounded attack stymied Dallas’ high-scoring offense. The win was even more impressive when you consider Roy Hibbert missed his first game in 1706 days. Luis Scola could have used his presence when Brandan Knight extended for this jam in Scola’s grill.

GIF: Blake Griffin Explodes For Halfcourt Dunk From Dotted Line Versus Hornets

Blake Griffin

Call it the Dime curse. Ever since we named Blake Griffin basketball’s best power forward, play of the Los Angeles Clippers’ superstar has been substandard – compared to expectations, at least. There was a time when explosive halfcourt dunks were commonplace for Griffin, but that hasn’t been the case in 2014-2015. Maybe this will be the play that spurs him to the heights we anticipated. Watch Griffin receive a perfect pocket-pass from Chris Paul and rise from just inside the dotted line for a powerful jam in the early going versus the Charlotte Hornets. Read More »

Brandon Jennings Says The Brick-Heavy Pistons “Don’t Shoot In Practice”

Brandon Jennings

Only the godawful 76ers are shooting worse than the Pistons. Detroit’s second to last in true shooting percentage AND effective field goal percentage behind the Philly D-League squad, so it’s no wonder point guard Brandon Jennings is a little ticked off they can’t seem to find time in practice or shootarounds to get some shots up in an effort to alleviate all the bricks they’ve been shooting this season.

Chris Bosh Gives Heat Lead On Fadeaway, Al Jefferson Misses Game-Winning Tip

Marvin Williams, Miami Heat

The margin between winning and losing in basketball can be a matter of inches. Tens of possessions decide whether a game’s final moments matter, but once they do a humbling reality always becomes abundantly clear: This is a make or miss game. Just ask the Charlotte Hornets. After Chris Bosh hit a tough baseline fadeaway to put the Miami Heat up one with 31 seconds left, Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson just missed far easier shots on the game’s final possession that would have given their team the win.
