GIFs: Kobe Hits Go-Ahead Jumper; Roy Hibbert Badly Misses Game-Winner

Kobe Bryant, Roy Hibbert

It’s easy to pain this year’s Lakers team as a soap opera around the Mamba. Kobe Bryant has dominated headlines all season for his game, his comments and anything else related to one of the worst Lakers teams of his career. But he’s still got the Juice, too, as evidenced by his go-ahead jumper with under 20 seconds to play in last night’s 88-87 win. Unfortunately for Pacers fans, Roy Hibbert didn’t have the juice on the final play. Read More »

Video: Ronnie Price Air Balls Breakaway Dunk Attempt

Ronnie Price

The Lakers escaped a visit by the Pacers on Sunday night with a 88-87 win. If Kobe Bryant doesn’t hit the go-ahead jumper or if Roy Hibbert hits the game-winner as time expires, then Ronnie Price would be even more ashamed about his breakaway dunk attempt that didn’t even hit the iron. Read More »

Goran Dragic Says Roy Hibbert Is Easiest Player For Him To Finish Over

Roy Hibbert, Goran Dragic

Last night Phoenix beat up on the Sixers, 112-96, but Goran Dragic struggled from the field, going just 1-of-6 from downtown and 3-of-13 overall on his way to 10 points. He also had 10 rebounds, three steals and a blocks, playing beyond his 6-3 frame. But finds it’s easiest against Indiana’s lumbering 7-2 center, Roy Hibbert, as he told Bleacher Report’s Jared Zwerling in a piece published yesterday. Read More »

GIF: Chris Bosh’s Slick Behind-The-Back Dime

Chris Bosh

Chris Bosh only had one assist during his 18-point, eight-rebound performance against the Pacers in a disappointing loss. But what a doozy of an assist. Bosh went behind his back for the easy Heat jam. Read More »

GIFs: George Hill Blocks Birdman From Behind, Goes Coast-To-Coast For Jam

George Hill, Chris Andersen

The Pacers are prickly against other teams despite losing two of their offensive stars over the summer. They defeated the Miami Heat — with Chris Bosh — on Wed. night, 106-95, and George Hill was a big reason why. The Pacers point scored 20 in the win, and his block and flush in the first quarter showed off his skills on both sides of the court in one stunning succession. Read More »

Butler Hits Go-Ahead 3-Pointer, But Says “I Couldn’t Play A Lick Of Defense”

George Hill, Jimmy Butler

If you want an example why Bulls wing Jimmy Butler is having a transformative year for the Bulls, his comments after Monday night’s 92-90 win in Indiana — Chicago’s seventh straight — works. After helping the Bulls win with his go-ahead three-pointer just outside of a minute to play, he could only lament his defense on Chris Copeland after the game. Read More »

David West On KG Blowing In His Ear: “I Didn’t Like It…Lance’s Was More Sensual”

Kevin Garnett, David West

David West could laugh after the game because his Pacers defeated the Nets, 110-85 on Saturday night. But during the contest, he experienced some “aggressive” face blowing courtesy of Kevin Garnett. The antic backfired, though, with West scoring 15 of his 17 points in the second half — when the Pacers outscored the Nets 60-38. Read More »

Report: Pacers Players Could Be Against Lance Stephenson’s Return

Lance Stephenson

We’ve written quite a few pieces about the headache Lance Stephenson has become for the Charlotte Hornets. Right now, the three-year, $27 million deal he signed this past offseason has to be in the running for the worst new contract of the summer. But with the team looking to move him — after clashes with teammates and less-than-stellar performances on the court — before the Feb. deadline, his old team has come up as a possible destination. Except, how do his former teammates feel about his return? Some seem against it, while others are less so, with a majority of them probably falling somewhere in between. Read More »

Counting Down The Top 10 Moments From NBA Christmas Day: 7-5

Michael Jordan

The NBA isn’t like other professional sports in America; they play on Christmas. Not only do they play, but the games on the national holiday signal a focal point for most NBA observers and a day when it’s finally appropriate to take stock of the first quarter of the NBA season. With Christmas approaching this week, we thought it would make sense to count down the 10 biggest Christmas Day moments in NBA history, culminating in our top two choices on Christmas Eve 2014.

Pacers Owner Would Welcome Stephenson Back, But “Bird Has To Decide”

Lance Stephenson, Solomon Hill

The Pacers lost Lance Stephenson to the Hornets this past summer when he inked a three-year, $27 million deal with owner Michael Jordan. But Stephenson has struggled with his shot, and the Hornets are at 6-18 so far after finishing 44-38 last season for a No. 7 seed in the playoffs. Pacers owner Herb Simon says he’d welcome Stephenson back with open arms, but it’s not his decision to make. Read More »
