During Oklahoma City’s overtime victory over the Washington Wizards yesterday, the Thunder stormed back from a double digit deficit to force OT. But they lost their point guard Russell Westbrook in the process and the Wiz lost their force on the block, Nene, when both were ejected after an on-court confrontation. Read More »

Historically, this has been one of the most competitive positions in the entire NBA. The power forward position might not have had the iconic and celebrated figures like Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and Magic Johnson but they have more than held their place in history: Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, Elvin Hayes and Kevin McHale, not to mention the recent duo of Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett who are both sure-fire first-ballot Hall of Famers.

The NBA is a player’s league, so it’s easy for some to get caught up in drafting long-time All-Stars over up-and-coming studs. Aging superstars have tons of mileage on their legs and if they play for a good team, may wind up relaxing on the bench during the fantasy playoffs. Read More »

We fell asleep at some point in the third quarter, and when we woke to see the Lakers were back in it, we thought it was an entirely different game. In a way, it was. L.A. overcame a 25-point deficit in New Orleans last night to beat the Hornets, 108-102. They scored the game’s last 20 points, and held the hosts scoreless for the final 6:47. It felt more like a month. Read More »

LeBron James Dazzles Against The Clippers; Rudy Gay Is Mr. Clutch In Indiana

LeBron James

The Heat-Clippers showdown got undermined in the last three weeks by Chris Paul‘s hurt kneecap and a flu strain that made most Miami players sick before the game. Still, even with the whole Clippers roster (Jamal Crawford had 13 points, Paul had 3 and Blake Griffin had 13 in their respective returns) mostly healthy, shorthanded Miami bludgeoned its way to a rout made almost unwatchable it was so lopsided if it weren’t for LeBron James’ hypnotizing skills.

The last time Rudy Gay posted up Evan Turner, the Sixers appointed nerd damn near ripped Gay’s arm out of his socket. That was back in 2011, and since then, Gay, Zach Randolph and the Grizz can’t go a week without someone pointing out that their marriage is doomed for failure. This time, the Gay-on-Turner post-up worked out a little better in Memphis’ three-point win in Philadelphia. Read More »

Fantasy Basketball: Buy Low, Sell High (1.07)

Kyle Lowry

BUY LOW Kyle Lowry Kyle Lowry lost his starting role after returning from injury, but even off the bench he has plenty of fantasy relevance. In five games manning the second unit, he’s putting up 13.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 1.8 treys and 1.4 steals, which is basically starter’s stats anyway. Read More »
