The Lakers Nearly Pull Off A Crazy Comeback; Brandon Jennings Lights It Up

Tony Parker

Everyone claims they have the answers for the Lakers problems this year. But there’s one that’s stumped Hollywood for over a decade: what to do with Tony Parker. In San Antonio’s wild three-point win over the Lakers, Parker looked like he was running his own pick-n-roll drill, and barely broke a sweat on his way to 24 points and six dimes. The Spurs needed all of that, as they nearly let a 17-point lead slip away before Manu Ginobili (19 points, eight rebounds) hit the biggest shot of the night: a wing triple in the final minute.

Something Special Is Brewing In New Orleans

Eric Gordon

The New Orleans Hornets (they’re not the Pelicans just yet) are a team in flux. They started the year with the specious ROY, Anthony Davis, and his inexorable brow grabbing most of the headlines. But it didn’t last. Davis went down with an ankle injury. Plus, after matching Phoenix’s offer sheet for the off guard they got in the Chris Paul trade, Eric Gordon, they waited for him to recover from a patella tendon disorder and bone bruise in his right knee.

Paul Pierce Owns New York City; Kevin Durant One-Up’d By A Rookie

Paul Pierce

On a night where we all tried to watch a BCS championship that got so bad – think Spike running over the Little Giants – that Brent Musburger needed a hall pass by the end of the first quarter because he was getting distracted by A.J. McCarron‘s girlfriend, we saw more than enough upsets in the NBA to hold over even the most raucous Notre Dame fans. In the Mecca, Paul Pierce oiled up the machine, got the creaky gears working together again, and put on his “professional scorer” face in the fourth quarter of Boston’s 102-96 “don’t believe the hype” win against the Knicks.

Paul Pierce Leads Boston Back From The Dead; Carmelo Anthony Erupts In Disney World

Paul Pierce

Boston had every right to lose this game. They didn’t get into Atlanta until 4 a.m., and they fell behind big in the first half. By the second quarter, the Hawks’ announcers were asking, “Lets blow ‘em outta the building. Whadda ya say?” Lou Williams (28 points) came out and dropped 11 in the game’s first four minutes while hitting three triples, and Atlanta had the Celtics’ offense in a vice grip. Read More »

Report: The Hornets Won’t Trade Eric Gordon Anytime Soon

Eric Gordon

Anthony Davis is back and healthy. Greivis Vasquez finally got some love, winning Western Conference Player of the Week today (check out his numbers from the past three games: 21 points, 10 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 1.7 steals a night). Ryan Anderson is putting up even better numbers than he did last year next to Dwight Howard. Outside of Austin Rivers and his historically bad start to his rookie season, everything is looking up in New Orleans. Eric Gordon‘s presence is merely icing on the cake. Read More »

James Harden Can’t Get Revenge On OKC; Eric Gordon Is Back

Kevin Durant

The last time James Harden played against his old team, he had a nightmare game, a half dozen of his shots blocked back into his face. This time, he made his first shot in Kevin Durant‘s face, and was good enough to drop 25 points (still only 9-for-33 shooting against OKC this year). But while the first half played out like a tape from the old And1 video game, the second half became a mismatch, and the Thunder went on to win 124-94. Read More »

The Lakers Get Pushed To A Breaking Point; The Hawks Almost Get Embarrassed

Kenneth Faried

A great recipe for disaster – at least if you’re the Lakers – is playing in Denver on the second night of a back-to-back. Old legs. The high altitude. The penchant of the Nuggets to play fast and frenetic. It almost never works out for L.A., and last night, not even 40 from Kobe Bryant was enough. Read More »
