Goran Dragic Says Roy Hibbert Is Easiest Player For Him To Finish Over

Roy Hibbert, Goran Dragic

Last night Phoenix beat up on the Sixers, 112-96, but Goran Dragic struggled from the field, going just 1-of-6 from downtown and 3-of-13 overall on his way to 10 points. He also had 10 rebounds, three steals and a blocks, playing beyond his 6-3 frame. But finds it’s easiest against Indiana’s lumbering 7-2 center, Roy Hibbert, as he told Bleacher Report’s Jared Zwerling in a piece published yesterday. Read More »

Russell Westbrook’s Priceless Postgame Comments After Ejection

Reggie Jackson, Russell Westbrook

Call it schadenfreude because we’ve also been stuck on the receiving end of tired refrains from athletes in a post-game press conference, or when we deign to enter the fray of a locker room media scrum, but Russell Westbrook refused to talk about what got him tossed right before the half in last night’s 137-134 OT Thunder win over the Suns. He repeated the same answer regardless of the question — similar to Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch and his own pithy comments that failed to answer any questions. Read More »

After missing the last six games with a severe ankle sprain — a stretch where the Thunder went 3-3, hardly what you need in the competitive West — Kevin Durant came back with a vengeance against Phoenix last night, picking up where he left off when he dropped 30 points in under 20 minutes before his ankle sprain.

Video: Russell Westbrook Ejected After Picking Up Two Technicals

Alex Len, Russell Westbrook

Less than 30 seconds left in the first half, and Russell Westbrook was putting on another dazzling performance on New Year’s Eve against Phoenix. The Thunder guard was fighting for everything, including an offensive rebound after a miss with under a minute to play in the first half. He and Alex Len tangled up and both were whistled for technicals, with Kevin Durant also getting one when he came to Westbrook’s aid. Then, the unthinkable happened — Russ got another one less than 30 seconds later and was gone. Read More »

Goran Dragic: Knicks Are “Possibility” In Free Agency; Praises Phil Jackson

Jose Calderon, Goran Dragic

The Suns beat the Knicks on Saturday, 99-90. Despite the win, Goran Dragic hasn’t been up to his All-NBA Third Team performance from last year. Saturday’s victory was Dragon’s second game back from a back injury. Still, the Suns point guard will be highly coveted this summer in free agency, and his comments after the game went a long way towards putting the Knicks in contention. Read More »

It wasn’t just the last-second play in regulation that pitted Eric Bledsoe against the man he backed up in Los Angeles for the first three seasons of his NBA career. While Chris Paul had 20 points and 10 dimes as well as the win, Bledsoe had a triple-double and largely out-played his former teammate. Read More »
