The Victory Formation:
For some odd reason, people foolishly believed they could beat Brian Scalabrine one-on-one. Ya know, because he was the goofy white guy that sat at the end of the bench during this NBA career.

I just don’t think fans grab the concept of just how good NBA players are, even the ones that really don’t get too much burn. Scalabrine was playing against Kevin [...]

“This is Belinelli’s second random game-winner. I guess he has good Karma,” was how Detroit Pistons head coach Lawrence Frank summed up the Pistons giving up a 17 point lead and dropping their 17th straight game to the Bulls. Belinelli added another game winner to his Bulls resume. The first year Bull followed up his miracle turn around fadeaway vs. Boston in OT that somehow...
Luol Deng will miss Monday's game with the Los Angeles Lakers. Deng missed Saturday's game with a hamstring injury; he's day-to-day.
