  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/14/2013 — Russell Westbrook

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/14/2013 — Russell Westbrook

    The Oklahoma City Thunder visited Phoenix on Tuesday looking to become the first team in the NBA to reach 30 wins on the season.  And they would accomplish that feat, thanks in large part to the performances put forth by their two superstars. Leading the way in the points category was Kevin Durant, who scored […]

    This Is the Most Incredible Half Court Shot of All Time (Video)

    I’ve watched a good amount of basketball in my day, and I’ve seen a lot of weird things. In fact, just this year I’ve seen a ball come to rest on the rim up against the backboard, a shot made off the top of the backboard, a shot made over the backboard, an epically terrible […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/10/2013 — Paul George

    In the world of fantasy basketball, Paul George is what we like to call, “a stat filler.” Why do we refer to the Pacers’ forward as a “stat-filler,” you ask?  Take last night’s game against the New York Knicks, for example, as George was filling the stat sheet to the tune of 24 points, 11 […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/9/2013 — Brandon Jennings

    The Milwaukee Bucks were able to win their first game under interim coach Jim Boylan, and they were looking to make it two in a row when they visited the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.  Doing so wouldn’t be easy against a Bulls team that ranks third in the league in opposition scoring, but their defense […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/8/2013 — Nikola Pekovic

    With Kevin Love sideline due to a fractured right hand, the Minnesota Timberwolves will need someone to replace his 18.3 points  and 14.0 rebounds per game.  During last night’s game against the Atlanta Hawks, that someone was center Nikola Peckovic. Peckovic was a monster on the boards, as he pulled down a total of 18 […]

    Yesterday, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News cited “a league source” who claimed that Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard nearly came to blows after yet another frustrating Lakers loss on New Year’s Day. Howard, the story goes, has been unhappy with Bryant since early in the season, and Bryant supposedly insinuated that Howard […]

    J.R. Smith’s Ridiculous Reverse Alley-Oop Dunk (Video)

    J.R. Smith is such a mercurial player. When he’s acting up–which is the case more often than not–you begin to wonder how this clown is still in the NBA.  But when he’s good, he’s really good. Last night against the San Antonio Spurs, Smith showed flashes of the latter.  The best example was this insane […]

  • Stat Line of the Night — 1/2/2013 — Tim Duncan

    Stat Line of the Night — 1/2/2013 — Tim Duncan

    Upon first glance, it may appear as though LeBron James‘ 32 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one block qualify as the most impressive stat line from last night’s NBA action, but the Miami Heat superstar needed 42 minutes–including overtime–to record those numbers.  As for Tim Duncan, he needed just 34 minutes to […]

    Events such as LeBron James’ first championship, the Kings winning the Stanley Cup, and the London Olympic games might seem like distant memories now that we’re focused on the NFL, but all of it went down in 2012. It just goes to show that a lot can happen in a year, and it’s easy for […]
