As a basketball nerd, I hated Tyler Hansbrough‘s trap on Derrick Rose that led to Kyle Korver‘s three in the corner. The Indy defense broke down because T’s trap because he was defending Joakim Noah on the weak side, forcing Booz’s defender — Jeff Foster — to shift to Noah and Paul George to virtually defend...

The Heat’s (25-9) 16-game streak of keeping opponents under 100 pts was snapped by the Rockets (15-16), but Miami reacted to the fast pace of the 102-possession game winning 125-119 in the only game I watched last night. Very fun game to watch where Dwyane Wade had his second straight 40-point performace, scoring 45 on... Read more »

Kobe Bryant is 21 points behind John Havlicek for 11th all-time going into Friday’s game in Chicago. I didn’t post a preview.

Sunday: The Spurs (14-2) impressively beat the Hornets (12-4) in Nawlins, 109-95. San Antonio turned a 17-point deficit into a 17-point lead in the second half. It’s the most anyone has scored against Nawlins so far this season. I’m inching toward the Celtics and Spurs being #2 and #2A in my mental power rankings. post-game... Read more »

Blake Griffin is the story of L.A. basketball because “the Lakers story will be told in the spring,” according to J.A. Adande. Sure, he’s being provocative, but the motive is to begin a serious push of media hype away from John Wall and earlier East coast basketball to not lose interest in West coast hoops... Read more »

Awesome, must-read interview at the San Antonio Express-News with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili (h/t: SLAM). They discuss the changes that brought them together, their championship runs, their legacy, the “lack of respect” they receive, and which years of not winning that still bother them. Hakeem Olajuwon’s absolutely sick numbers while fasting for... Read more »
