Mature DeMarcus Cousins Fouls Out & Prevents Coach From Costly Technical

Mike Malone, DeMarcus Cousins

There was less than 40 seconds remaining in regulation during last night’s exciting Suns-Kings overtime scorcher, when DeMarcus Cousins set a screen on Marcus Morris that sent him flailing. It’s unclear whether it was an offensive foul (we don’t think it was), but it was Boogie’s sixth infraction of the game and he was now gone in the most crucial moment. Except, in a move that flipped the script so far in a career plagued by on-court outbursts, it was Cousins who controlled his passions, and he even prevented coach Mike Malone from picking up what would have been a costly technical foul at that juncture of the game.

Watch Gerald Green Dunk All Over The Lakers

Gerald Green

The Phoenix Suns were pushed by the Lakers, specifically Kobe Bryant and his season-high 39 points — though it did take him 37 shots to get there. They needed every one of sub Gerald Green‘s own team-high 26 points for the 112-106 win at Staples Center. Green accrued his season high in high-flying style, too. Read More »

GIF: Kobe Bryant’s No-Look, Circus And-1 Layup

Kobe Bryant

This play from last night could have acted as a metaphor for this Lakers season so far. It featured Kobe Bryant alone on the break attacking two Suns players at the rim with a third arriving to give help. He hangs in the air, gets temporarily tied up by Markieff Morris, spins 180 degrees and throws it off the backboard for the bucket and a chance to add a free throw… Read More »

Dime Q&A: Eric Bledsoe On Call of Duty, His Extension, Jeff Hornacek’s FT’s & More

Eric Bledsoe

Suns guard Eric Bledsoe went through some turmoil this offseason as a restricted free agent. He signed his qualifying offer last fall after the team made it clear they wanted to wait until he had proven himself in a starter’s role after backing up Chris Paul for three years with the Clippers. Then, a shin ailment digressed into a torn meniscus and Bledsoe missed half of the 2013-14 regular season after having surgery to remove the meniscus. In what time he did appear in the Suns’ double-headed backcourt with All-NBA Third Team member, Goran Dragic, Bledsoe showed he’s a more-than capable starter in the Association. Read More »

Watch Chris Paul Demolish The Suns

Chris Paul played angry last night. Well, angrier than usual for what is still a tune-up for the 2014-15 regular season. With many predicting the Clippers as a title contender, their 1-5 preseason record heading into last night’s game against the Suns did not bode well for their championship aspirations. So Paul, along with fellow all-star, Blake Griffin, decided to treat their second-to-last preseason contest like they had something to prove. Read More »

Taj Gibson Pokes Fun At Jared Cunningham After Eric Bledsoe Drops Him

Taj Gibson

Last night, Eric Bledsoe was going against his old team, the Clippers, after getting traded to Phoenix last fall. He dropped 27 on them; although, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin led the Clippers to a 108-105 win in a fun preseason contest. At one point Bledsoe made LA guard Jared Cunningham look downright foolish with a step-back that sent him toppling all the way under the basket, and Bulls forward Taj Gibson certainly noticed.

The 5-9 point guard was in the perfect spot to knock down a 20-foot jumper and send the Lakers-Suns preseason game into overtime right in front of undefeated boxing savant, Floyd Mayweather Jr. Zeke’s smirking stare towards Mayweather after the bucket dropped was just icing on the cake.

Popovich Says Suns Owner Should Have Been Wearing A Chicken Suit For Comments

Gregg Popovich

Two days after Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver apologized to his fans for the San Antonio Spurs bringing a depleted team to an exhibition between the Western Conference foes, Gregg Popovich fired back in a way only he could. Calling Sarver’s comments “silly,” the legendary Spurs coach upped the ante by quipping that he was surprised the CEO of Western Alliance Bank wasn’t wearing a chicken suit when he took the mic during Thursday’s game.
