Damian Lillard, Rodney Stuckey

On a night where Pistons forward Josh Smith was a ridiculous 13-for-15 from 2-point range, Detroit point guard Brandon Jennings was getting his hands in all over the court with nearly a triple-double, it was the cold-shooting Damian Lillard who ended the game in overtime and continued Portland’s winning ways this season, even as they struggled on the road in Detroit.

The Top 50 Fantasy Basketball Players Right Now

John Wall

Player values are officially set in stone now, so it’s time to update the Top 50. There aren’t too many drastic differences, but certainly there are some changes worth noting.

The biggest jump, once again, goes to Anthony Davis, who’s up 18 spots since the preseason edition, and Andre Drummond, who’s up an incredible 25 spots.

Video: Brandon Jennings’ Sick Off-The-Backboard Alley-Oop To Andre Drummond

Brandon Jennings, Andre Drummond

There aren’t many 20-year-olds that can steal a pass, sprint the length of the court in a couple huge strides before collecting the return pass off the glass to throw down a filthy dunk. Then again, not many people are Andre Drummond. Still, it’s remarkable to see a 7-footer move the way he does in this play from last night. Read More »

The 20 Best Small-Ball Lineups In The NBA

Carmelo Anthony

Just a short year ago, we were blessed to watch the USA Men’s basketball team storm into London and pick apart each opponent with a variety of different tactics that emphasized speed and transition defense. Those lineups, at times, were sorely lacking in the height department. We would occasionally find the 6-8 Carmelo Anthony at the center position where he would rebound and “attempt” to guard opposing centers. Read More »
