Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford

It might take 50 wins to make the playoffs in the west, such is the depth and talent of nearly every team. Utah gave the Clippers a run tonight at Staples Center, and Steve Ballmore’s new team barely escaped a Gordon Hayward and Co. with a 107-101 win. The game also featured a number of high-flying finishes, though none were as creative as Jamal Crawford‘s spontaneous decision to lob it off the backboard for the waiting Blake Griffin. Read More »

Gordon Hayward

Until 19 year-old Dante Exum starts scratching at his limitless ceiling, Gordon Hayward is star of the Utah Jazz. And while the fifth-year pro’s play doesn’t necessarily deem him worthy of such a distinction, the max-level $63 million deal he signed with Utah this summer certainly does. The Jazz have begun marketing Hayward as such, too, hinting at his coming success with a pair of two extremely creative, intertwined billboards on I-15 in Salt Lake City. Read More »

Video: Watch Alec Burks Embarrass Kobe Bryant, Lakers With Sick Crossover

Kobe Bryant, Alec Burks

Kobe Bryant might still be an offensive force, but his play on the other end has quietly been a liability for the past few seasons. If the Los Angeles Lakers tasked their living legend with defending top-tier wings instead of the opponent’s worst perimeter threat, his defensive deficiencies would be common knowledge.

Kobe Bryant took 23 shots in 27 minutes last night (it was actually 27:59, but it makes the headline better), and he made 10 of them. He dropped 27 points in those minutes, and his Lakers lost by 33. While we’re pretty confident Kobe will humiliate Carlos Boozer in LA’s next practice, lets marvel at the Mamba’s possible return to a scoring apex he achieved during his 81-point-game season.

Video: Chris Paul Crossover & Lob To DeAndre Jordan

Trey Burke, Chris Paul

It wasn’t just Derrick Rose who showed off the handles in preseason action last night. Chris Paul shook Trey Burke by faking towards DeAndre Jordan‘s high screen, only to cross over to his right. Once in the lane, Paul lobbed it to DJ for the easy slam. If you want to study how to run the high screen and roll, this sequence by CP3 and DJ is a perfect example. Read More »
