Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while eating a $250 hamburger… Jarrett Jack, Cleveland Cavaliers. Earlier on Sunday the Atlanta Hawks had lost and so the Knicks had real motivation at the Garden vs. the Cavaliers — win and NY is just two games back of the last playoff spot in…

Shaun Livingston has been a solid point guard for the Nets this season and he has looked even better of late as the Nets have gotten hot — in his last 5 games he has averaged 11.8 points on 53 percent shooting, plus dishing out four assists a game. He is a quality veteran backup…

Brooklyn started to look like a threat this season when they were forced by injry to go small without Brook Lopez, which meant coach Jason Kidd slid Paul Pierce over to the power forward slot. You knew Pierce could score at the four, but the surprise is how much better the Brooklyn defense is with…

BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

The Nets are reportedly considering signing Jason Collins to a 10-day contract, though they’d like to see how things shake out with Glen Davis first before going down that road. Collins hasn’t played since last season, but made headlines by coming out as gay once his team was eliminated from postseason contention. It was a…

Last year in the first round of the playoffs the Bulls defeated the Nets because they were tougher — their energy, their execution, their aggressive, physical style of play knocked the Nets off their game. It felt like finesse against power, and power won. Even if the Bulls were without their MVP. So this summer…

For the 15th time this season, Dwyane Wade sat out a Heat game on Wednesday. That’s not really a surprise. A lot of those were to rest his knees, part of the Heat’s maintenance program, but on Wednesday night it was what he called a “bizarre” left foot injury. One that could keep him out…

Jason Kidd is in his first year as head coach of the Nets, and he retired following last season’s campaign with the Knicks for a reason.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about how strange the 1904 Olympic marathon in St. Louis was…. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors.
