Catch n' Shoot: April 25, 2011 -- The Weekend in the Amazing 2011 Playoffs & Super-Elite CP3

Catch n' Shoot: April 25, 2011 -- The Weekend in the Amazing 2011 Playoffs & Super-Elite CP3
(#5) Hawks lead (#4) Magic 3-1. This series has been painful to watch. The boredom is criminal. The Hawks have taken both games in Atlanta, starting with Jamal Crawford luckboxing heroically nailing this 3-pointer at the end of Game 3 (Basketball-Reference): Game 4 ended 88-85 (BBR) and I admit that I neglected it for lesson planning...

Catch n' Shoot: March 24, 2011 -- The Truth Needs the Ball, Aldridge Deserves More Love, AAU Needs to Poof!, Jimmer Needs a Guru
“That pass is, uh — is uhhhh…” (h/t: Matt McHale): The Celtics’ shot selection can look very weird on a chart. It can make you wonder how in hell they win. But “open shots are better than other shots.” Sandy Weil proved it. That said, Rajon Rondo holds onto the ball too fucking long. The... Read more »

Over the summer, Derrick Rose shot “at least 1,000 treys a day from a variety of angles.” Yes. The value and character of Omer Asik, a great profile by Steve Aschburner at NBA.com. Kurt Helin has Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Derrick Rose, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kobe Bryant on his five-man MVP ballot. I don’t disagree with this... Read more »

Return of the Catch n' Shoot: February 17, 2011

Return of the Catch n' Shoot: February 17, 2011
I didn’t do daily “Catch n’ Shoot” posts for quite some time because I started yet another part-time teaching job on top of my current load. Between bringing back game previews for every game or this section, the decision was easy. There is a change, though. As the playoffs come closer, I might go through... Read more »

Brick-tastic Bulls Play No D in Portland and Aldridge Drops 42... Whah Hahpen?

Brick-tastic Bulls Play No D in Portland and Aldridge Drops 42... Whah Hahpen?
Terrible shooting and transition defense shot the Bulls in the foot with a great performance by LaMarcus Aldridge in their 109-103 loss. The Bulls (34-16) have now lost 10 of their last 12 in Portland after a 109-103 loss where the score makes the game look more like a toss-up than it was. The Blazers... Read more »

Brandon Roy Plans to Play at 'High Level' Again, But Not '100%'; Maybe Not 'All-Star Level'

Brandon Roy Plans to Play at 'High Level' Again, But Not '100%'; Maybe Not 'All-Star Level'
I expressed my basketball-sadness when it was clear that Brandon Roy’s season was over and the reality of how badly his knee was damaged. Roy recently had arthroscopic surgery to repair a knee so devoid of meniscus that he was operating bone-on-bone. In an interview on 95.5 The Game in Portland, he said that he’ll... Read more »

Brandon Roy's Season Could Sadly Be Over

Brandon Roy's Season Could Sadly Be Over
Roy let it be known that he’s been playing this season hurt…. Very hurt. His arthritic knee could put him on the Hell Shelf for the remainder of the season. UPDATE: Brandon Roy is officially “out indefinitely.” Reports are saying that “shutting it down for the rest of the season” is now a “serious option”... Read more »

Catch n' Shoot: November 15, 2010
The Suns (5-4) hit 22 threes of an astonishing 40 attempts to beat the Lakers (8-2) on the road, 121-116.

Catch n' Shoot: November 14, 2010
Kevin Love led the Darkopuppies (3-7) to a to a victory against the Knicks (3-6), 112-103, in a big way with a 30-30 double-double, Friday. It’s the first 30-rebound performance since Charles Barkley in 1996 and the first 30-30 since Moses Malone in 1982. Best part: the game was in Minnesota, but not on TV... Read more »
