  1. Video: Kevin Durant drops Sasha Pavlovic with the crossover

    Nov 3, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Richard Jefferson

    We don’t really think of Kevin Durant as a skilled ball-handler, specifically. He’s certainly one of the smoothest scorers in the game, and can explode to the rim for a dunk in traffic just as easily as he can pull up for a quick-release three-pointer from distance. Maybe this play will help get Durant’s handles…

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett calls out to his team mates as the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Kevin Garnett is a different dude. Now in his eighteenth NBA season, if you didn’t know this by now, you’re clearly new to things. Let us welcome you, then, to the wonderful world of KG, and how he sees the game through specially-colored glasses. After the Celtics fell to 0-2 on the young season in…

    The Orlando Magic got a big, and largely unexpected victory over the Nuggets on Friday, thanks to a 29 point, 10 rebound effort from Glen Davis, and 21 points off the bench from J.J. Redick.

  5. Chris Paul doesn’t buy Jamal Crawford doesn’t practice dribbling

    Nov 3, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    At one point in the second quarter of the Clippers win over the Lakers Friday night — on what was supposed to be the Lakers home court — Jamal Crawford crossed over a Lakers defender to get an open look on the left wing, a move so sweet there was an audible gasp from the…

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

    If James Harden continues to play like he’s played in his first two games with the Rockets, the trade that brought him to Houston may eventually be seen as one of the most one-sided in NBA history. It’s early, of course, and finances were the motivation in Oklahoma City, where Harden didn’t (and wouldn’t) have…

    DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard

    DeAndre Jordan can jump high and finish. If you want him to rotate quickly on defense or knock down his free throws you are talking to the wrong guy. But if you want a guy to throw it down and give you a highlight, he’s your man. Jordan drew the foul on this play —…

    Nov 2, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The advanced age of the Knicks has been a source of comedy this offseason, but the Miami Heat probably don’t think the Knicks are much of a joke after getting blown out, 104-84, at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks may be short on speed and athleticism with their role players, but it’s evident already that…

    scola-suns

    When the Houston Rockets used the amnesty provision on Luis Scola, it was a pretty odd move.
