We’ve been treated to some great games, as recently as Sunday’s Golden State-Portland affair, and some highlights that may have been forgotten because of all the entertaining games we’ve witnessed this year. In case you may have forgotten, fans have been able to witness some of the greatest game-winners, poster dunks, and alley-oops in recent memory. Read More »

Video: Emphatic Terrence Ross Flush

Terrence Ross

Terrence Ross played a big role while joining John Wall and Paul George to bring home the trophy for the Eastern Conference during the 2014 Dunk Contest, but his more famous peers got the majority of the DAP. While Ross has already added a 51-point game to his resume in his second season, we still love to watch him attack the rim. That’s exactly what he did with Atlanta in town. Read More »

Video: Terrence Ross Throws It Down Like A Boss

Even though Terrence Ross wasn’t successful defending his Slam Dunk crown in New Orleans earlier this month, he’s had an impressive sophomore campaign for a Raptors team that’s in the driver’s seat for home-court advantage in the Eastern Conference. Ross is a significant part of that success. After shooting 33 percent from behind the three-point arc in his rookie year, Ross is up above 40 percent this season. That’s why Jarrett Jack rushed out so hard on him behind the arc on Tuesday, which allowed Ross the opening he needed to drive past Jack and throw down a filthy one-handed slam. Read More »

Terrence Ross‘ performance in the 2014 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest will forever remind us of an anachronistic attempt to duplicate 2013′s win. We thought celebrity props were a thing of the past, but it continued Saturday night in New Orleans. Ross threw down a simple windmill after grabbing it from Canadian emcee Drake‘s hands, and eventually landed (one of many on the night) an eastbay with the same motion. Read More »

The NBA has announced the 2014 Dunk Contest participants, and unlike in earlier years, stars abound. We’ve already detailed Damian Lillard‘s participation and another nice surprise from earlier today — since it was reported before he had rejected an invite — was Paul George. A third All-Star that will be playing the next day in the main event, John Wall, will also be joining them. The Dubs’ second year wing Harrison Barnes, defending champion Terrence Ross and rookie Ben McLemore round out the 2014 Dunk Contest cast. But there’s even more to get excited about besides the characters involved. Read More »

For only a half season, the NBA’s best players have put together some historic performances.

Already we have witnessed three 50-point games this year. We only witnessed two all of last year–Stephen Curry scoring 54 in the Garden and Carmelo Anthony scoring an incredibly difficult 50 in Miami.

It’s no easy feat, but these high scoring outputs are happening less and less frequently. The 62-point game by Carmelo was the first 60-point game in nearly five years, yet it occurred five times in a three-year span between 2004 and 2007. Read More »
