Video: Arron Afflalo’s Game-Tying 3-Pointer At The Buzzer Wasted In OT Loss

James Harden, Arron Afflalo, Dwight Howard

It’s not often a team is tasked with taking the ball out from under their own basket with only 3.7 seconds in regulation, down by three. Usually they’d advance the ball. Also, this gives the winning team time to foul and avoid a game-tying 3-pointer. Except, Patrick Beverley failed to foul Ty Lawson in time as he sprinted across half-court and found Arron Afflalo for the game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer last night in Denver. Read More »

Video: Warriors Go Small To Beat Rockets For 14th Consecutive Win

Steve Kerr, Warriors

The Dubs aren’t messing around. So far they’ve played the NBA’s third easiest schedule, but a 14-game winning-streak and a 19-2 start to the season — the NBA’s best — is the greatest start ever by a rookie head coach. Steve Kerr adroitly trotted out a small lineup down the stretch of Golden State’s 105-93 win over a very good Rockets team, and if they can get past Dallas and Memphis on their upcoming road trip, it’s worth calling them the NBA’s best despite how early in the season we still are.
