J.R. Smith Hugs Opposing Player, Allowing Another Rival To Dunk With Ease
Huffington Post - 3 months
Maybe he should have saved the pleasantries for later. In an NBA game Tuesday night against the host Milwaukee Bucks, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ J.R. Smith approached the opposing team’s bench to greet Jason Terry. They hugged in what could have been a heartwarming moment. Only play was on and Smith’s impromptu social call allowed the Bucks’ Tony Snell to sneak in for an easy dunk. Smith is known for being a big character. But Tuesday’s antics will be remembered in his canon of antics. Here he is explaining his brain freeze ― while wearing a ski mask. Ladies and gentlemen, J.R. Smith pic.twitter.com/SXFjZv8z6A — Jason Lloyd (@JasonLloydABJ) November 30, 2016 The Bucks won, 118-101. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Stephen Curry's Injury Will Sting Warriors, But It Isn't A Knockout Blow
Huffington Post - 10 months
Stephen Curry's injured knee sustained in Game 4 of Golden State's first-round series with Houston has sent shockwaves through the NBA Playoffs. The 28-year-old playmaking dynamo and reigning league MVP is expected to miss two weeks with a Grade 1 MCL sprain. Are the record-breaking Warriors suddenly vulnerable? Is this the end for the Dubs' repeat chances? Can Curry -- who is about to earn his second straight MVP -- rehab in time for the next round?  As Aaron Rodgers said in his infamous press conference, "relax." Curry is undoubtably great, but the beauty of Golden State's offensive scheme is that it doesn't change when he leaves the floor. Spacing, ball movement, dribble penetration remain paramount -- all three elements lead to the 3-pointer. And all three elements still create excellent offense. If any roster was designed to handle such a devastating injury, it's this one. What makes the Warriors lethal is their capacity to play positionless basketball, including the ...

Houston Rockets: Prospective Playoff Opponents
isports web - almost 2 years
With 6 games remaining, the Houston Rockets’ regular season is winding down, and the Rockets are peaking at just the right time. With an 8-2 record in their last ten games, and the return of All-Star center Dwight Howard, Houston is going to be a load for whoever they play in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. However, their opponent in the opening playoff games has yet to be determined. Houston will likely end up with either the 2nd or 3rd seeds, matching them up with the 7th or 6th seed, respectively. Thus, there are three teams we are likely to face. Los Angeles Clippers This would not be an ideal match-up for the Rockets, as the Clippers have been a matchup nightmare for Houston all season. The two teams split the season series, with Houston winning the most recent two. However, the Clippers were missing Blake Griffin in one of those games, and Dwight Howard missed all four games, so those games are not completely indicative of how a playoff series between the ...

Pierce sidelined up to four weeks with broken finger
Yahoo News - about 3 years
Brooklyn Nets forward Paul Pierce is expected to miss the next two to four weeks of the NBA season with a fractured finger on his right hand, the team announced Monday. Pierce was injured in the first half of Friday's 114-95 loss at Houston and missed Brooklyn's 97-88 victory Saturday at Memphis. Medical tests showed Pierce had suffered a non-displaced fracture of his right middle finger, another setback for a club already without Deron Williams due to an ankle injury, Jason Terry with a knee problem and Andrei Kirilenko with a back issue.

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - The injury-ridden Brooklyn Nets picked up a close win against a first-place team Tuesday, albeit a weak one in the Toronto Raptors. Andray Blatche scored 24 points, Joe Johnson added 21 and the Nets survived a late push to pull out 102-100 victory -- just their fourth of the season. Brooklyn figured to be a player in the Eastern Conference race, but injuries to regulars Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko has the club scuffling out of the gate with 10 losses in its first 14 games. The Nets upended their Atlantic Division rivals despite failing to make a field goal over the final 5:21. The Raptors sit atop the standings even though they are under .500 at 6-8. The backcourt combination of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry paced Toronto with 27 and 24 points, respectively, while Rudy Gay struggled with just nine points on 3-of-12 shooting to go with seven turnovers. ...

Brooklyn in the House
Huffington Post - over 3 years
When the Nets arrived in Brooklyn a year ago, things never completely clicked. The team was talented but jumbled, the product of a Russian oligarch who was determined to spend whatever it took to win, with little regard for team cohesion. The uniforms and arena were cool, but felt too much like Jay-Z's grand marketing experiment, a weirdly celebrity-based strategy that might have worked in Miami or LA but not in New York. When the Nets were blown out at home in the playoffs by a Bulls team whose three best players were hurt, they became an afterthought. The Mets of the winter. But in the era of Dante De Blasio's Afro and the Smorgasburg Ramen Burger, it's no surprise that Brooklyn's basketball team didn't stay down for long. After the Bulls series, General Manager Billy King decried publicly that the team wasn't tough enough, and put Mikhail Prokhorov's money where his mouth is. King added Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, two veteran hall-of-fame players who've compensated for the ...

Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Anderson Varejao's tie-breaking jump shot with 28.1 seconds left helped get a promising season for the Cleveland Cavaliers off to a terrific start, while simultaneously spoiling the anticipated unveiling of the Brooklyn Nets' star-studded core. The upstart Cavaliers outplayed the experienced Nets down the stretch to come away with a 98-94 victory at Quicken Loans Arena and make head coach Mike Brown's second tour of duty behind the Cleveland bench a successful return. Tristan Thompson netted 18 points for the Cavs, who haven't won more than 24 games in the three seasons since Brown was fired and LeBron James famously took his talents to South Beach following the 2009-10 season. Kyrie Irving overcame a 4-for-16 shooting display to chip in 15 points, nine assists and several big plays down the stretch to help Cleveland prevail. The Nets made a giant offseason splash by landing peren ...
