Kevin Garnett and Dirk Nowitzki had some legendary matchups over the years. As two of the league’s best power forwards of their generation, and two who spent long portions of their primes in the Western Conference, they matched up throughout the season. Dirk was the skilled shooter; KG was the intense defender. Because they were so different, it makes this debate so fun. Read More »

This looks like Goran Dragic just wants to hold Ricky Rubio‘s hand. Ricky, or Rick to friends, skipped past Dragic at the top of the key tonight when he crossed over to his left hand. But Goran wouldn’t let him go, and grabbed Rubio’s right arm before pulling him back to prevent the bucket. The foul spins Ricky towards the other side of the court. Rubio blindly flicks the ball with his left, off-hand into the net and says “Ta Da!” Read More »

They’re both forwards on teams that were supposed to make a bit of a splash in their respective conferences, but while Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love have largely lived up to their pre-season hype, their teams have not. ‘Melo’s Knicks were supposed to be within the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff bracket by now, and Love’s ‘Wolves were supposed to be in the thick of the last few spots out west. With the future of both in doubt, it’s time to figure out which All-Star forward needs a change of scenery or drastically re-altered lineups to support them. Read More »

Video: Thomas Robinson Obliterates Corey Brewer’s Dunk Attempt

Corey Brewer, Thomas Robinson

Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson has bounced around a bit since getting drafted No. 5 overall in 2012. He was drafted by the Kings, then traded to Houston in what looked like another Daryl Morey coup at the time. But Morey unloaded him to Portland in an effort to get far enough under the cap to sign Dwight Howard as a free agent. In the meantime, Robinson only getting 11.6 minutes a night in the Northwest, sitting behind All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge. But with Aldridge injured, Robinson got 33 minutes Sunday night when the ‘Wolves were in town on a winning streak. Read More »

The Pacers, the best team in the East, rolled into Minnesota on Wednesday night, but it was the T’Wolves who started the game off with a bang. In the first quarter, Ronny Turiaf came out to set a screen for Ricky Rubio on the wing, and then rolled to the basket. The Pacers’ defense failed to cover Turiaf as he cut to the rim, and Rubio was able to thread the pocket bounce pass to Turiaf for a powerful slam over Roy Hibbert — a pretty good protector of the rim.

We’re obsessed with the semantics of a no-look pass. The Suns gave us two “real” examples Tuesday night this week. Nene showed us a real no-look in the season’s first month, and Jeremy Lin had a no-look in December. Did Ricky Rubio toss one last night when the Nuggets came to town? Read More »
