GIF: Jeff Teague Crossover Breaks His Brother’s Ankles

When the Hawks did battles against the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night, it was a chance for some sibling rivalry. That’s because 25-year-old Jeff Teague was going against his 21-year-old little brother, Marquis Teague, the backup point guard for the Nets. The elder Teague put his younger sibling on the floor with a blistering crossover. Too bad Jeff missed the reverse layup following his brother’s impromptu ice skating routine disguised as defense.

Video: Jeff Teague Slam Seals Win Over Bucks

Jeff Teague

It’s not often you see this happen. Although we’ve seen a couple game-winning dunks this year, this one didn’t win the game outright, but it did seal it for Atlanta with Milwaukee in town, and it came in a half-court set with the Bucks defense set. That’s just the Bucks, we guess. Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague used a high screen and change-of-speed dribble to get into the lane. Once there, it was lift off time. Read More »

The Clippers withstood a rally by the Hawks in the fourth to escape a meeting Saturday night with a 109-108 win that could have gone to an extra session if Jeff Teague had made both his free throws with a second remaining. But Blake Griffin continues to lead the way for the Clippers, shooting 11-of-19 from the field for a game-high 27 points. Despite Blake’s continued excellent, it was Chris Paul‘s off-the-backboard lob for the DeAndre Jordan slam that drew the “oohs and aahs.” Read More »

We’re technically past the halfway point in the NBA season, but really, let’s be serious: Things don’t start to heat up until after the All-Star break. Now we’re on the cusp of the trade deadline, and soon teams will be fighting for playoff spots and lottery ping-pong balls. Read More »

Dime Q&A: Elton Brand On Defining An NBA Legacy

Ray Allen, in his 18th year in the league and arguably the greatest three-point shooter of all time, backpedals to the three-point line and rises up for the biggest shot of his career. “BANG!” Mike Breen is yelling as it swishes through the net and the Heat go on to win the NBA Finals in Game 7. Ray Allen’s legacy describes itself, but he put it best after that shot, saying “I’m still defining my career.” It’s funny, because when Ray Allen’s career is over, the first thing we will remember is Game 6, not the 2900-plus three-pointers he made before that in his 18-plus years in the league. That shot did more than just bring another ring home to Miami. Read More »

There’s only one reason Jeff Teague would tweet out what he did tonight, and that’s because he had the last laugh in Cleveland. Earlier in the game, during the second overtime session, Kyrie Irving crossed him up so bad by going behind-his-back, Teague fell to the floor. Read More »

On the day after Christmas, the Hawks and Cavs unleashed a heart-pounding double-overtime game that culminated in perhaps the closest thing to a missed game-winner — that actually went in — we’ve ever seen. Jeff Teague‘s step-back 20-footer seemed to bounce against every piece of iron before falling through as the buzzer sounded ending the second overtime with a 127-125 Hawks win. Read More »

Player values are officially set in stone now, so it’s time to update the Top 50. There aren’t too many drastic differences, but certainly there are some changes worth noting.

The biggest jump, once again, goes to Anthony Davis, who’s up 18 spots since the preseason edition, and Andre Drummond, who’s up an incredible 25 spots. You’ll notice that I came around on ranking injured players. It still leaves too much up for debate in my mind, but Anthony Davis’s needed presence was the deal breaker. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (12.6)

Kyrie Irving

BUY LOW KYRIE IRVING, Cleveland Cavaliers You’re still going to have to give up a lot in exchange for a stud like Irving, but owners are fed up with his underachieving and are certainly more likely to deal him now than they were at the beginning of the year. The former Rookie of the Year is shooting a career-low 40 percent from the field and the rise in assists that was talked about all summer simply hasn’t happened. He’s also experiencing dips in free throw percentage, three-pointers and steals. Read More »
