    Tristan Thompson, Amare Stoudemire

    What you missed while figuring out why ice cream causes brain freeze… Lakers 114, Thunder 106 (2OT): There was a game, too, not just an elbow. The Lakers got a win that can give them some confidence for a potential playoff meeting between these teams — but can they replicate this recipe for success? Our…

  6. Blake Griffin says his game not about intimidation

    Apr 15, 2012, 8:50 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Pau Gasol

    It looks intimidating. When Blake Griffin flies in and dunks over Pau Gasol or Kendrick Perkins or Timofey Mozgov or any one of many of his victims, it looks intimidating. More than just the dunks, Griffin’s game plays to his physical strengths. He plays a power game. But he says it’s not about intimidation. “Intimidating,…

    Apr 13, 2012, 10:59 AM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Clearly, he needs to practice this more. Okay, the real problem is that nobody was in his way. If Pau Gasol or Kendrick Perkins or Timofey Mozgov or a Kia had been in his way, we would have been treated to the spectacular. It’s like in The Princess Bride, when the Man in Black defeats Fezzik in…

    Caron Butler, Marc Gasol

    What you missed while marveling at Japanese beer technology. Grizzlies 94, Clippers 85: Why does everyone fear the Grizzlies right now? Because they have a huge front line with skill.

    In a story with many chapters, it’s fitting that the book on the Maloofs’ future in the NBA will be written on April 12-13 at the league’s Board of Governors meetings. After all, it’s where the tide turned for Kings fans last year, as Kevin Johnson came out of nowhere with both the will and…
