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

Michael Jordan

Victor Oladipo, Kyle Lowry

Second year guard Victor Oladipo has been one of the better perimeter defenders since coming into the league. He’s big, and he’s blocked some big names who thought they could take advantage of a young fella. That’s what made this third quarter sequence by Kyle Lowry even more special. Read More »

Orlando might have gotten a 93-90 win over the Suns on Sunday night, but Gerald Green got the play of the weekend when he found himself stuck near the free throw line.

J.R. Smith Forgets About ‘Melo On Brick At Buzzer As Knicks Lose Sixth Straight

J.R. Smith

The Knicks lost to the Magic 97-95 last night, their sixth straight game we can lump into the loss column. But with 3.5 seconds left, down two, they had the ball and a chance to either tie it up, or win it with a three-pointer. J.R. Smith took the inbounds, and though Carmelo Anthony can be seen calling for the ball, Smith decided to loft a three-pointer that barely glanced off the rim. Cue eyeroll. Read More »
