Two point guards better than one for Toronto
Mar 26, 2014, 12:47 PM EDT
Kyle Lowry, after averaging 36.7 minutes per game in his first 68 games this season, played just 27 minutes in a win over the Hawks on Sunday. He’d played less only in a pair of blowout wins over the Jazz. Cause for concern for the Raptors? Barely. It’s much more indicative of Toronto’s positive season.…

Lakers and Knicks meet Tuesday
Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EDT
San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

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…

Kevin Durant had his latest technical foul rescinded, but two more and he’ll receive a one-game suspension.

Atlanta has been playing with a little fire of late, ever since the hot Knicks (winners of eight in a row heading into Sunday night) put pressure on them for the final playoff spot in the East. This was the kind of loss the Hawks can’t afford if they want to make the postseason. Atlanta…

An MRI showed that Russell Westbrook came away from his latest injury scare unscathed.

It’s factually and subjectively wrong.

Russell Westbrook left Friday’s game with a knee injury, and it did not look good. However, he left the arena later without a limp or brace and said he will not miss time.

Rockets replacing Rick Adelman with Kevin McHale caused friction.
Terrence Ross says Kevin Garnett NBA’s best pick-setter ‘because he sets illegal screens but he never gets caught,’ wants Nets in playoffs
Mar 19, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT
Maybe Garnett will fight him. Ross is a guard.

Zarar Siddiqi of Raptors Republic has another angle, and I count 4.5 revolutions around the rim. That’s a tough miss – especially considering the game’s result. Toronto lost to the Hawks, 118-113, in overtime. Obviously the butterfly effect has an impact, but had Ross’ shot fallen, maybe the Raptors would have won in regulation. Instead,…

DeMar DeRozan expressed his displeasure over a non-call by kicking the ball away from a referee — a move which guaranteed him a quick whistle in the form of a technical foul.

Terrence Ross has won a Dunk Contest. He scored 51 points in a game. He starts for the Eastern Conference’s third-best team. But he still has to take out the trash when he goes to his mom’s house. Raptors.com interviewed Ross with his mom, Marcine Ross, when Toronto played in his hometown of Portland last…

To be fair to the ball boy, nobody expects Tyler Hansbrough to make a steal on the perimeter then race out on the fast break by himself.
Mar 10, 2014, 12:59 AM EDT
A career-high 42 points on just 18 shots. Not bad.

Taj Gibson grew up in Brooklyn and attended USC. Mike Dunleavy graduated from a college-prep school in Oregon and attended Duke. They didn’t exactly have the same upbringings, but the Bulls teammates formed a bond years ago. On the New York City subway. Late at night. Once Dunleavy was already in the NBA. Gibson on…

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…

The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

The Warriors and Raptors played the best game of the day Sunday, one that really featured Stephen Curry and DeMar DeRozan taking turns in a little battle much of the night. Curry finished with 34 points on 13-of-27 shooting, carrying the Warriors offense on a night Klay Thompson (4-15) and David Lee (8-of-18) were not…
