Capping off a season where he’s likely to capture his first MVP award, Kevin Durant also nabbed his fourth scoring title in five years, averaging a career-high 32.0 PPG. KD, who finished with 42 points against the visiting Pistons, also lit up Chesapeake Energy Arena in the first quarter with a ridiculous throw-down. Durantula drove down the middle of the lane, took off, and soared in for a monster dunk over Andre Drummond. Read More »

The Raptors clinched the Atlantic Division on Sunday after going into Detroit to defeat the Pistons, 116-107.

Before Shabazz Napier, there was Kemba Walker. Walker came into the league with a lot of hype and not a lot of opportunity to grow and learn from his mistakes. Playing for Charlotte meant most fans were only going to associate him with the team’s W/L record and for that, the UConn product was a perennial loser. Read More »

Leave it to the Lottery-bound Pistons to get the Pacers back on track. Despite rampant finger-pointing, arguing teammates and a stretch that’s seen them lose six of their last nine games, the Pacers got back on track Wednesday night against the visiting Pistons with a 101-94 win. The game featured a gaff three-pointer by Paul George that still fell and a fancy dish by Lance Stephenson. It’s gonna be all right Indiana fans, we promise. Read More »
