The Bulls won last night, but their Bench Mob struggled against Toronto’s second string. No one on the Toronto side played as well as former Bulls player James Johnson, who was 7-of-9 from the field for 16 points including a power slam after Greivis Vasquez whipped a pretty no-look dish to him following a Bulls turnover.

Video: John Wall Leads Wizards Past Raptors In Triple-OT Thriller

Video: Blake Griffin Give-And-Go Double Lob With Jamal Crawford

Blake Griffin

The Clippers have been missing point God Chris Paul for the last 10 games after he separated his shoulder against the Mavs in the second game of 2014. With Paul out, scoring assassin off the bench Jamal Crawford has gotten a lot more run handling the offense, and hasn’t shirked that responsibility during LA’s 7-3 record in Paul’s absence. Against the Raptors Saturday night, Crawford again exploded, and ran a gorgeous double-lob with Blake Griffin on his way to a scorching double-double and the win. Read More »

Derrick Rose

BUY LOW DERRICK ROSE, Chicago Bulls The slow start after a season off from ACL surgery had to be expected, but a hamstring and neck injury combined with some turf toe that Rose admitted has been bothering him since 2012 has those that invested a first rounder in the former MVP in full-out panic mode. That’s why it’s the perfect time to strike a deal. Averaging only 15.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 4.5 assists, Rose isn’t coming close to reaching expectations, but if you’re willing to sit and wait for production, snag him from someone who isn’t.

You Need To Watch The Isaiah Thomas, Greivis Vasquez Position Battle

Isaiah Thomas

The Sacramento Kings franchise always seems to have some sort of problem.

The 20 Best Small-Ball Lineups In The NBA

Carmelo Anthony

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 »
