    Marquise Jackson has game. If that name rings a bell, it’s because he’s the son of Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent. Despite posting averages of 19 points, 4 rebounds, and 4 assists per game as a senior at King’s Ridge Christian Academy just outside of ATL, the 5-9 point guard got little recruiting love and still finds himself fighting for that elusive D-1 offer. At the National Prep Showcase, he did everything in his power to earn that. Playing against the No. 1 prep school in the country in Brewster Academy, Jackson found himself matched up with high major recruits…

    The 8-5 Chicago Bulls are in first place in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, and yet it still feels like they aren’t getting their due respect. Maybe it’s Derrick Rose’s constant health issues, or their matter-of-fact, business-like approach, with no fanfare or hype. Whatever it is, Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler doesn’t care. He told USA TODAY Sports, when asked about his squad’s chances of winning the NBA title this year: “Hell yeah, it’s a championship team.

    The Pistons sit at 3-10 on the season. Part of their lack of success is because, despite offensive weapons like Brandon Jennings, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith, they’re only mediocre on the offensive end. Why? If you ask Jennings, it’s because the Pistons literally don’t shoot during team practices. He explains, via MLive.com: “If you ask the question about why we’re not making shots, we don’t shoot,” Jennings said after Friday’s 99-89 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. “We don’t shoot in practice. We haven’t really had a chance to work…

And LeBron James is keenly aware of just how “fragile” the Cavs are at this point. He told the media as much after the loss to Toronto. From ESPN’s Dave McMenamin: “We’re a very fragile team right now,” James said after Cleveland saw an 18-point first-quarter lead turn into a 19-point fourth-quarter hole against the Eastern Conference-leading Raptors (11-2). “Well, we were a fragile team…

    The 2014 NBA Draft saw the Cleveland Cavaliers again win the right to choose first. Last year they acquired Anthony Bennett, who has gone down in recent memory as one of the worst draft picks. This year the Cavs, who are the favorites to win the NBA Championships with Betfair, picked up Andrew Wiggins. However, you won’t be seeing him in a Cleveland jersey, as he was traded alongside Bennett to the Minnesota Timberwolves in return for Kevin Love. Hopefully Wiggins will be able to make a better account of himself in his maiden NBA season than his countryman, who we all hope finds his…

The Pistons need to turn things around after a disappointing 107-93 loss at home to the Magic Monday night. It wont be easy against a Suns team has won eight of the last 11 games against the Pistons. The good:Nice to see Andre Drummond put up a double-double after quite a few disappointing games. The bad: The Pistons one of the league’s worst at home in defensive field-goal percentage at 47.2.

    Brandon Jennings hopes it will not cause him to miss any time. Brandon Jennings was playing tight defense on Jeff Teague -- no, really -- and reached for a steal, but came out with an injured left hand. Jennings started shaking his hand immediately, as Teague went to score, and held it behind his back as he took the inbounds pass. He tried to play through it, but was lifted for Augustin a minute later and did not return. After the game, it was announced that Jennings hyperextended his left thumb. He had it taped pretty heavily, but told media that he hopes it will not cost him any time. The…

After the Suns escaped The Palace with an 88-86 victory Wednesday, with KCP's possible go-ahead 3-pointer rimming out, Morris went after the Pistons second-year guard to the media. "Caldwell-Pope got it and you know he doesn't have any heart, so we knew he was going to miss," Morris said. Morris, of course, neglected to mention the 3-pointer KCP hit to spark the…

    This game felt strange. It wasn’t something in particular. Just everything about it felt odd. First off, the Pelicans didn’t have their own guys broadcasting the game. If you got anything, you got the Utah broadcast. Then, it was a late west coast game on a Saturday night in November. There is never a lot of interest in those types of games. Also, did you notice how quiet Utah and their fans were? The crowd only really seemed to come alive at a couple of points, and their team even seemed a little disinterested on defense. Look, the Pelicans (7-5) got the win, and that’s…

    The Pelicans did something new every quarter tonight.  Each quarter, they lost in a slightly different way.  In the first, after racing out to a quick lead, they decided they wanted to turn the ball over more than they ever had.  In the second, the deployed an offense that consisted of pick and rolls that got Ryan Anderson the ball 20 feet or more from the basket, guarded.  Those ended fairly badly.  In the third, they decided that layups would be helpful – for the other team.  And in the fourth?  Other than a couple shots each by Ajinca and Davis, they took nothing from closer…

Questions 1) Ty Lawson had an absolutely dominant stat line last game and is the engine of the Nuggets offense.. can Jrue Holiday and co. limit his penetration? 2) Kenneth Faried is not having the breakout year that many expected after his Team USA performance, but he is still frighteningly quick and certainly not someone you want to give easy…

    22 Nov 2014 | 8:25 pm
    The Sacramento Kings continued their domination of ferocious animals. It wasn't always pretty. It wasn't always fun. But the Kings got the win. The Sacramento Kings have had so many quality wins so far this season. We have beat some of the best teams in the league, and struggled against some of the worst. With almost all of the Minnesota Timberwolves guns on the bench with an array of injuries, this was a trap game. The Kings played like it was, too. In the first half, they seemed to be more content with hitting the big three or trying to get that big play down low that they forgot the play…

    The Kings' early success may stem from a new vibe and changing culture in the locker room. The small market team with the black and purple trim has been anything but a Cinderella story over the last seven years. No effective systems on offense or defense and a rotating door of coaches and players, combined with relocation threat after relocation threat, left the Kings locker room in shambles and with a record of 182-376 between 2007 and 2013. But this year's Kings team is off to a 7-5 start and national media continues to take notice, mentioning DeMarcus Cousins as a potential MVP candidate…

    After wrapping up a 2-1 homestand with a victory over the Chicago Bulls, the Kings are back on the road again for a four game trip starting today in Minnesota.  The Timberwolves are ravaged by injuries and thanks to this summer's Kevin Love trade are more full of potential than actual production.  This is a rare early season game for Sacramento that they should be expected to win, but they can't fall into the trap of playing down to their opponent.  Tonight's action tips off at 5:00 pm tonight on Comcast SportsNet California and on KHTK 1140. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1.

    Portland started out ice cold, but recovered in the second half to beat the Boston Celtics. Even when the shots will not fall for the Blazers in the first half, no one seems to be able to stop them. LaMarcus Aldridge had 20 points and 14 rebounds, Chris Kaman had 16 points and 8 rebounds, and the Blazers overcame a slow first half to defeat the Boston Celtics 94-88 at the TD Garden in Boston Sunday night.

They were very active on defense and were able to turn that into quick offense, outscoring the Wizards 16-3 in fast break points.

    The Bucks' blowout loss in Toronto on Friday night was forgettable on virtually every front, but Bucks fans with an eye on the big picture can at least take solace in another solid performance from Jabari Parker. The draft's second overall pick couldn't stop the Raptors from running wild, but his 15 points (5/12 fg, 4/6 ft, 1/1 from deep), six boards, three assists, two steals and one block made him the Bucks' lone bright spot on a rather bleak night north of the order. Hey, we'll take what we can get. And the good news is that we're increasingly getting more from Parker. Having shot 53.1%…

    Burn the tapes, bury the ashes and shred the box score. That's the best the Bucks could probably hope for after Friday's 124-83 demolition in Toronto, a game that saw the Raptors reassert their home dominance while reminding the Bucks that they still have a long way to go. Even with DeMar DeRozan struggling through a rare off night (7 pts, 1/8 shooting), the Raptors scored at will early (37-27 lead after one quarter) and then bludgeoned the Bucks on both ends in the two middle quarters (64-30!), leading by a stunning 101-57 margin after three quarters.

It soothes over the nuances of how well certain players fit with one another on the court with one catch-all term that we can easily grasp. In basketball in particular, part of that process of building "chemistry" is cultivating the interpersonal bonds between athletes in the locker room.

    At least there was one bright spot during the Bulls' blowout loss in Portland. The last Friday before Thanksgiving in Portland, man. A year ago on that day, Derrick Rose tore his meniscus. The schedule makers decided to run it back in 2014 and all the Bulls got out of it was a blowout loss to the Trail Blazers and another scary injury to a key player. This time it was Taj Gibson. There weren't many silver linings in a 105-87 loss, but the performance of Nikola Mirotic was definitely one of them. Mirotic became the first rookie to post a 20-point double-double this season by finishing with 24…

    The short-handed Bulls were used and abused in Portland, and making matters worse, Gibson suffered what looked to be a badly sprained ankle. No Derrick Rose. No Pau Gasol. No Kirk Hinrich. No chance in Portland. On the second night of a back-to-back with three key rotation players out, the Bulls had the deck stacked against them against a well-rested Trail Blazers team on Friday night. Sure enough, Chicago was thoroughly dominated in its seventh straight loss in Portland, 105-87. Adding injury to insult, Taj Gibson sprained his left ankle in the third quarter and needed help off the floor…

    Solomon Hill's impact on the Pacers continues trending upward as he takes advantage of the opportunity to play heavy minutes. Solomon Hill started the season showing the promise the Pacers' expected when they drafted him two summers ago, as injuries thrust the forward into the starting lineup. But as the team struggled to a 1-6 start, Hill reminded us that playing isn't so great if your team is losing.

  • Pace will be key as Phoenix Suns face Indiana Pacers on second end of back-to-back

    After an easy night downing the sorry Sixers in Philadelphia, the Suns roll into Indy to face a Pacers squad which lacks firepower but still brings the defense, and has won 4 of its last 5. Opening tip-off is 5PM AZ time. The Indiana Pacers (5-7) fell from Eastern Conference contenders to also-rans after Lance Stephenson departed in free agency, then Paul George broke his leg playing a scrimmage for the US Men's National Team this past summer. George and Stephenson were two of the three highest scorers on last season's Pacers squad. Stephenson was a key component for the Pacers' #1 rated…

    Many have covered the embarrassing pair of defeats from this past weekend, capping off a horrific road trip that quite possibly could not have gone any worse for a multitude of reasons. After a 2-2 start that rose expectations to unhealthy levels, the following transpired: Ricky Rubio injured his foot and is out, potentially, until Christmas, the team spent its longest time away from Target Center in team history, Thaddeus Young’s mother passed away, the Pelicans delivered the Wolves its worst loss in franchise history, and to cap it all off, Pekovic injured his wrist, a report that was…

    A bloodbath is imminent. For those of you talking yourself into Flip’s antiquated offense, tonight will be the worst possible juxtaposition to support your theories. 1st to worst in 3 point attempts, with a difference of nearly 19 3 attempts per game (32.9 HOU vs. 14.2 MIN), and a much more palatable 3rd to 11th in free throw attempts. The Rockets are the epitome of the “modern NBA offense.” These are, of course, extremes on both ends of the spectrum. The Rockets may take the 3 pointer one or two steps too far, yet it remains comical to hear Flip try to convince his fans…

    I had hoped that my first post of this season would be about a more positive subject, but last nights developments suggest a very negative turn. The Twolves came into Orlando looking confident and strong after an impressive final six minutes against Brooklyn. In Brooklyn we saw a Wolves team that rose to the occasion, got out to a big league, weathered the storm and came a way with a victory. Everything looked great. Whenever he was on the court, Nikola Pekovic was a force to be reckoned with. Ricky Rubio scored the ball in crunch time. Kevin Martin hit big shots and the youngsters, Anthony…

    The Minnesota Timberwolves lost Kevin Love via trade this past summer, but that shouldn’t take any of their value away in the eyes of fans. Instead, fans should get to see their team at a discount, while watching some exciting talent develop along the way. Ricky Rubio and Nikola Pekovic are already in place to help Minnesota stay competitive, while the future resides in Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine and Anthony Bennett. That mixture of upside and competitiveness gives Timberwolves tickets some serious value for the 2014-15 NBA season, especially if Minnesota can somehow make a playoff push.

I gotta say that the Wizards are showing a side of themselves that we haven't seen much out of past teams here in the Nation's Capital. After a cold start where the Wizards fell behind by committing five turnovers in the first minutes (not to mention falling behind by 15 points during THE MIDDLE OF THE SECOND QUARTER), they roared back at the end of the first half and never looked back. The end result is a 111-100 victory and a 9-3 record. Here are…

    The Wizards nearly let their big lead slip in the fourth quarter, but Paul Pierce was right there, keeping everything together. and ultimately providing the dagger to lift his team to a 9-3 record. In the NBA, there are are games when a team will step up their game for, often for arch rivals and contending teams. So it feels great to see the Wizards beat the Cavaliers on Friday. However, it's important that they keep that same focus tonight as they play the Bucks on the road. Some notes below. Where and when is the game? 8:30 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

    This team we face tonight is young. Maybe that will help the vets execute the triangle however I hope the Knicks have their legs because I think this team likes to push the ball up the court. The Knicks are a work in progress, Derek Fisher is showing how patient he is as a coach. The Knicks need to find five guys who get it and let them develop. I wonder if Fisher thinks Calderon and Bargnani could be two of those guys. If so, who are the remaining two, because this team starts and end with Carmelo. Dalembert had a good game last outing, but could Bargnani steal his spot when he returns?

This is a rebuilding year, hate to say it at the beginning of a brand new season, but Jackson is on the Donnie Walsh plan. Instead of getting under the cap and waiting for 2010, we’re waiting for Marc Gasol and/or Kevin Durant in a year or two.

    As you’ll probably notice from the headline, Andrei Kirilenko’s time with the Nets may be drawing to a close. What makes this interesting, apart from how good Kirilenko used to be, is that he turned down a sizable contract from the Timberwolves to come to Brooklyn in the first place on a veteran minimum deal. Kirilenko has barely seen the floor this year, and last year was easily the worst of his career, but you’ve got to imagine there’s an NBA team somewhere that can use him, perhaps in a sort of Shawn Marion/Vince Carter role. So anyway, here’s one report, from…

    When Dirk Nowitzki recently passed Hakeem Olajuwon on the list of all-time leading scorers, one publication ran photos of the top 10 scorers and it was easy to spot Dirk, the only white guy. There is nothing particularly profound about that. Dirk’s been around 16 years. We all know he’s from Germany, he’s white and he’s a great basketball player. But it did remind me of a comparison that was made long before it was even close to being even remotely legitimate and one made primarily because he is white.

    We take our weekly look around the NBA to see which teams are rising and falling in the standings. We also take a look at the upcoming week for the Atlanta Hawks. We are closing in on the final week of November and the end of the first complete month of the NBA season. Its a bit early to draw a lot of narratives from the standings but some teams are tightly bunched into the action while a few others are digging themselves a big early hole. After a 1-1 week, the Atlanta Hawks actually moved up a spot to fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 6-5 record. They are four back of first-place…

Payne got the start at center and finished with 17 points, 13 rebounds and two blocked shots. He finished 4-9 from the field and 9-11 from the free throw line. As you can see from his shot chart, his touch still isn't fully there but he did a great job…

    Jeff Teague put up a dominating performance and helped the Atlanta Hawks snap a two-game losing streak with a 99-89 win over the Detroit Pistons. The Atlanta Hawks captured a much needed 99-89 win over the Detroit Pistons Friday night and snapped a two-game losing streak in the process. After two straight disappointing losses, Mike Budenholzer was looking for a better focus defensively and more effort at rebounding the basketball. The Hawks did just that holding the Pistons to just 37 percent shooting for the game and came away with a 46-45 rebounding advantage. "It's good for our group to…

    After starting 2-3, the Spurs have won seven of their last eight. They controlled most of the game against the Nets on their way to a 9-4 record. Let's take a look at some of the plays that stood out in the win. Let's start with Tony Parker. He had himself another fantastic game after he completely dominated the Wolves on Friday night. On Saturday night he dropped 22 on 50% shooting and found his teammates for seven assists. Here he is with a pretty start/stop drive against Deron Williams. The move gets Deron leaning the wrong direction and Tony attacks and finishes relatively high off the…

Brooklyn: Spurs 99, Nets 87    Rec: 9-4   Streak: W-4   4th in Southwest, 6th in West Every time I happen to see a Nets game, I think to myself, "There but for the grace of God go the Spurs."  It's all I could think about, watching the Spurs ground Brooklyn to dust Saturday night at the AT&T Center, the final score 99-87 but the outcome never in doubt after the Spurs raced out to a 16-6 lead.

    Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green combined for 64 points and each scored over 20. When was the last time a Spurs team had three different 20-point scorers in one game? The first half was a breeze for the Spurs. They scored efficiently and made it really, really tough on the Nets on the other end. The Nets were held to just 36 points on 33% shooting from the floor for the half while the Spurs dropped 51 with good looks and Tony Parker continuing to play at a high level. It looked like it was going to be an easy victory. Tim Duncan had a phenomenal first half and was well on his was to…

However, with the Raptors up by 45 points, Caboclo got his chance and he hit 2 three-pointers to score 8 points, grabbed 1 rebound and blocked a shot in his NBA debut.

    Eric Gordon’s season finds a way to get worse with a separated shoulder. New Orleans Pelicans starting shooting guard Eric Gordon left Saturday’s game vs. the Utah Jazz with a separated shoulder and did not return. Gordon scored 8 points on 4 for 7 shooting before suffering the injury in the second quarter. It has already been a rough start to the season for the guard who had averaged just 9.5 points on 38% shooting in 32 minutes per game. The injury is yet to be fully evaluated but the type of injury means he’s expected to miss a matter of weeks rather than days. The…

Hibbert actually came back in the game during the second quarter but had to leave again after two minutes before it was decided he sit out the rest of the game. No word on if Indiana expects Hibbert to miss any time going forward. The Pacers are already missing Paul George, George Hill, David West, CJ Watson and CJ Miles due to injury.

Rhode Island, who are set to host their opponents, are in the process of assembling a formidable squad to confront the tricky minefield ahead. Hassan Martin leads Rhode Island in scoring. The Rams didn’t even give their first two opponents a chance. They steamrolled a Division II team, the Pace Setters, in a 40-point winning effort. Rhode Island limited their foes to 2-of-19 from the three-point mark,…

His rookie season was splendid, just like his rookie season in which he averaged 23.4 points on 56.2% shooting, 13.9 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game. O’Neal started his career with the aforementioned team, Orlando Magic.

Both teams will eye a 2-0 start, but with their opponents ranking within the Top 25, it should be far from an easy task. It was a significant blow to the SMU Mustangs when it was reported that they would miss  Markus Kennedy for his first semester. This added to the stress of prized recruit Emmanuel Mudiay’s decision to bypass college and play professionally. But it didn’t seem like they missed either player when they annihilated Lamar, 93-54, to begin the season. Yanick…

He finished with 28 points , 6 rebounds and 7 assist. Might we add Wall was active on the defensive end getting 4 steals. John Wall played a complete game and made many plays which kept his team ahead in the contest. Many people have focused on the growing pains that have led the Cavs to their 3rd straight loss.

There’s always a week like that at least once this season where you just can’t catch a break with picks. I had a week like that in Week 9 when I went 6-7, but at least managed to ride the wave last round. I had Houston, Chicago and Miami all to win, even if I got ripped to shreds on a couple others. From here on it’s back into the tipping grind until the last couple weeks when some teams don’t care anymore any they let gamblers, columnists and armchair commentators alike all…

    Making BANK!Hi, my name’s Giancarlo Stanton. Outfielder for the Miami Marlins, and I have more money than you.Stanton’s not a guy who gets that much coverage because he plays for a terrible, terrible Marlins team, but he’s consistently been putting up numbers. He’s a power hitter with the ability to clear not just fences but entire stadiums. He’s coming off his best season yet (his fifth in the majors) where he hit 37 homers with 105 RBI at an average of .288. He’s an All Star and he just came runner up in the NL MVP voting to Clayton Kershaw and his historically immense season…

    www.nzbreakers.co.nz NZ Breakers 71-55 Wollongong HawksWell… it wasn’t always pretty.But the Breakers are 7-3 now, riding a strong finish at home against the Hawks to overcome a horrendous third quarter in which they scored just three points. Count ‘em, one two three.It was disastrous, yet somehow at the end of that quarter the scores were still tied! 47-47. NZB shot 1-18 from the field in that duration but they at least found the zone defensively (and some luck, sure) to keep Wollongong to only 13 themselves. 13 in a quarter? That’s really good in most situations.The secret trap door…
