Raptors point guards clicked when playing together
Oct 11, 2014, 2:00 PM EST
Toronto was 3.2 points per 100 possessions better when Valanciunas sat last season. The man has a lot of work to do.

Kyle Lowry and Co. return for another run
Sep 4, 2014, 2:45 PM EST
It’s for the minimum, basically, but if you see a lot of him on the court it’s a bad sign for the Raptors.

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 Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach.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…

This showdown of teams with dreams of getting past the first round of the playoffs was shaping up for an exciting ending. For three and a half quarters the teams had traded runs, made some big shots and both sides played some defense. The Warriors had been up 5 with just under 9 minutes left,…

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…

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…

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…

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.
