We told you about John Wall and the Wizards’ turnaround earlier this season after an important team meeting. Following their 2-7 start in what appeared to be another disappointing campaign in our nation’s capital, Wall and the Wizards are now at No. 5 in the East, all but certain to compete in the playoffs this spring. Wall and the Wiz continued their winning ways with Brooklyn in town Saturday night, including a fantastic chase-down block by Wall, on top of his 33 points during a 101-94 Wiz win. Read More »

Towards the end of a first quarter the Nets would just assume forget (Toronto outscored them 30-19), Andray Blatche showed off his nimble footwork and deft touch with the rock. After catching the ball on the left elbow, Blatche bamboozles Tyler Hansbrough so effectively with a right-to-left crossover, Psycho T spins all the way around before he realizes Blatche has him shook.

He’s the Blatcheman, Ski-Ba-Bop-Ba-Dop-Bop. Sorry, but that’s what we were hearing in our head when the Lazarus of Brooklyn (not Bethany), Andray Blatche, performed a minor miracle in Brooklyn Wednesday night. The 6-11 forward/center is as agile on his feet as he is while dancing, and he showed it all off in a thrilling sequence during Brooklyn’s win to get over .500 on the year. Read More »

Deron Williams might not ever be the player he was in Utah, but that doesn’t mean he can’t turn back the clock when he’s feeling healthy. He was feeling healthy during Brooklyn’s 96-80 domination of the visiting Bulls on Monday night. After catching the Paul Pierce dish, D-Will tossed in a remarkable reverse layup after breaking away from the clinging arm of Kirk Hinrich and around the outstretched arms of Carlos Boozer.

The Trail Blazers strangled the life out of the Nets Wednesday night at the Moda Center winning a laugher, 124-80. Deron Williams led the Nets in scoring with…12. None of Portland’s starters played more than 30 minutes (something that was unheard of last season). During all the fun Mo Williams found Will Barton for a sick alley-oop that had Robin Lopez doing a peculiar dance on the sidelines. Read More »

Video: Anthony Davis Stuffs D-Will After Crossover

The length of Anthony Davis is overwhelming when you think about how easily and naturally he moves around the court. Guys that are 6-10 with a 7-5.5 wingspan aren’t supposed to be able to stay with point guards. Especially not point guards that used to be all-stars, like Deron Williams. On Sunday, D-Will found himself facing Ant and used his quickness to cross him up. But the Brow recovered in time to block the shot and immediately leak out for what turned into a breezy dunk on the other end. Read More »
