But this Detroit win was different since it was interim coach John Loyer‘s first game after Mo Cheeks was fired. Second year big man Andre Drummond showed out with a sick block on Nando De Colo that led to a fast break layup for Brandon Jennings. Later, Jennings returned the favor. Read More »

How To Fix The NBA Playoffs: A 4-Step Plan

Brandon Jennings

As I watch the 2013-14 NBA season unfold, I find myself facing a sad, sad realization: This year’s playoffs are going to be an all-time atrocity. If the season were to end in the coming days, we could be looking at Eastern Conference first-round playoff matchups between the Pacers and Celtics, the Heat and Pistons, the Hawks and Wizards, and the Raptors and Bobcats. (God, help us.) Five of those teams are currently below the .500 mark, and a sixth (the Hawks) is barely hovering over it. I consider myself a die-hard NBA fan, and even I would have a difficult time getting excited for those series. Read More »

The NBA’s 10 Streakiest Shooters

J.R. Smith

While the sports world is paying more and more attention to statistics and analysis of those stats, the concept of streaky shooting is being brought to the forefront for basketball fans to breakdown.

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. You’ll notice that I came around on ranking injured players. It still leaves too much up for debate in my mind, but Anthony Davis’s needed presence was the deal breaker. Read More »
