    Joe Dumars

    Joe Dumars might not be replaced by Isiah Thomas, but it still seems unlikely Dumars will return next season as the Detroit Pistons’ general manager. Dumars is in the final season of his contract. Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach. And he didn’t make a move at the trade deadline. All signs…

  16. Too many late turnovers, too much DeMar DeRozan doom Warriors against Raptors

    Jan 24, 2014, 3:57 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons  v Indiana Pacers

    Josh Smith is on pace for the worst 3-point-shooting season in NBA history. That was the case recently made by Sean Corp of Detroit Bad Boys and backed by Kyle Wagner of Deadspin.

    Toronto Raptors

    After seeing him bulked up at Summer League and looking like a man among boys, after seeing him play well for his native Lithuania over the summer, a lot of people picked Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas to have a breakout season. Not so much. He’s scoring a little more per game but that’s just because he’s…

  20. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

    Atlanta Hawks v San Antonio Spurs

    Tim Duncan, point god. Well, not quite. However he did get forced to bring the ball up against the Raptors Monday night and that led Amir Johnson to think “I can pick that guy’s pocket.” But never underestimate the power of Timmy. His fundamentals include some ball handling. Why did you even doubt that? Hat…

  23. Greivis Vasquez and Amir Johnson ready to become high-end pick-and-roll combination

    Dec 18, 2013, 2:21 PM EST

    Amir Johnson, Kyle Lowry, Greivis Vasquez

    Greivis Vasquez ranks No. 18 in points per play he finishes as the pick-and-roll ball handler, and Amir Johnson ranks No. 31 as the pick-and-roll screener, according to MySynergySports.
