So much for Damian Lillard’s early season shooting struggles. As the Denver Nuggets threatened to make last night’s laughable loss to the Portland Trail Blazers somewhat competitive, the Oakland native squashed the home team’s hopes of a comeback by knocking down three three-pointers in as many possessions – scoring nine points in 44 seconds of game time and upping an 18-point lead to 27.

Video: Gary Neal’s Game-Tying Score Comes A Fraction Of A Second Late

Gary Neal, Blazers

Down 102-100 to the Blazers with 3.5 seconds left in regulation last night, Hornets guard Gary Neal took the inbounds from Lance Stephenson, drove right past Damian Lillard and appeared to knot the game at 102-all to force overtime as the buzzer sounded.

Video: Steve Blake Offended By Kenneth Faried Screen, So He Puts Him On His Butt

Kenneth Faried, Nate Robinson, Steve Blake

Steve Blake is right around our height, and we actually outweigh him by close to 10 pounds (yes, he’s all svelte muscle, and we’re a dilapidated former HS athlete who smokes cigarettes, but still). Kenneth Faried is nearly half a foot and more than 50 pounds heavier than Blake, but the size discrepancy didn’t matter during the fourth quarter of Portland’s 116-100 win last night when Blake took umbrage with Faried’s screen in his back.

GIF: Damian Lillard Makes Dirty Step-Back Three-Pointer Look Far Too Easy

Damian Lillard

The next time you’re playing pick-up, take a moment between runs and try a step-back three-pointer. You’ll find its difficult, but definitely hittable. Next, grab your miss, walk back to that same spot, and retreat four feet. Then try the same move from that farther distance – where guys like Damian Lillard make it look so, so easy. Read More »

While LeBron Looks Adrift, Stephen A. Smith Stupidly Says LeBron Will Split

LeBron James

The Cavs looked dreadful again on Tuesday night, similar to their lackluster performance against the Knicks to start the season. LeBron James, especially, seemed disinterested in competing when the Blazers made their run in the second half to put the game away. But James tells Brian Windhorst of ESPN what might look like apathy on his part is actually his new leadership style, one where he sits back and hopes his teammates learn their team-first lesson the hard way. That long-term view isn’t shared by some loud mouths in the media, though. Read More »
