Jordan Crawford

On a night when the Celtics and the city of Boston saluted former coach, Doc Rivers, the Celtics Jordan Crawford — who briefly played under Rivers last season, with inauspicious results — showed his previous coach just how dangerous he can be on the offensive end. Read More »

The Clippers’ defensive-minded small forward, Matt Barnes, got married to Gloria Govan last weekend in front of some of his LA teammates, including groomsmen DeAndre Jordan. Blake Griffin was in attendance, as was Ryan Hollins and a few other players from the NBA’s past and present. But a Pelican stole the show, and we’re not talkng about a New Orleans player, either.

Carl Landry To The Warriors; Nate Robinson Will Sign With Chicago

Nike Basketball Innovation: Deron Williams

Someone finally picked up Carl Landry. We weren’t sure what was taking so long, and why one of the stupidest front offices in the league (Charlotte) appeared to be the only team going after Landry. But at least the wait is over. Landry was considered the best unrestricted free agent still available, and despite that, he’s signing a very modest deal for two years and $8 million with Golden State. The second year is a player option, which means the power forward will almost assuredly opt out next summer to test his luck again (something Jamal Crawford did recently, and cashed in this summer with the Clippers).

Daily Fantasy Basketball Diagnosis: 4.2 (Weekend Recap)

Gerald Wallace

Weekend Wonder: Gerald Wallace averaged 21.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 4.0 steals, 1.0 block and 2.0 threes in two games over the weekend. In this stretch, he shot 54 percent from the floor and 89 percent from the free-throw line, while averaging 2.5 turnovers per game.

Joe Johnson Gets A Crazy Compliment; Dirk Gets Jiggy Wit’ It

Joe Johnson

Well at least New York can say for sure that Carmelo Anthony is alive. Still, the Hawks beat them by 10 after withstanding an old school ‘Melo performance (36 points, nine rebounds). At one point in the fourth, after Joe Johnson (28 points) had rocked the Knicks to sleep on three consecutive pull-ups, we heard the Hawk announcers say, “When it comes to clutch shooters in this league, Joe Johnson has to be in the top two.” However the two biggest shots of the game came from Willie Green (8-for-9, 20 points).

Kevin Durant

Beast of the Night: Kevin Durant finished the first half of the season to the tune of 33 points, four rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and two three-pointers. He shot 55 percent (12-22) from the field, 100 percent (7-7) from the charity stripe and had two turnovers. Durant has been a stud, as expected, so far this season. He’s improved his field-goal percentage, rebounding, assists, steals and blocks from their marks in his 2010-11 campaign. Read More »

The Heat Stop What No One Else Could; The Lakers Have A Problem

Chris Bosh

All-Star Weekend is in sight with the last chartered flights en route now. That means a three-day break for some, and a little ball and some partying for others. It’s easy to see why you’d want to take a break and take a little off in the last games before heading to Orlando. Not so for tonight’s marquee games, Lakers-Thunder, Heat-Knicks. It turns out how to stop Jeremy Lin (8 points, a -19 rating) is to have a Miami team that continues to take opponents apart with apparent glee … Read More »
