ORLANDO -- Even without their starting center, the Chicago Bulls looked like bullies around the basket Wednesday night. The Bulls got 75 points combined from their three front-court starters -- including a season-high 31 points from power forward Carlos Boozer -- to outmuscle the Orlando Magic, 96-94. Taj Gibson, starting in place of center Joakim Noah, had a season-high 21 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots, including one against Jameer Nelson with 11 seconds remaining that could have tied the game. Forward Luol Deng had 23 points, including the final two free throws with four seconds left to secure the victory. The Bulls outscored the Magic 42-32 from inside the lane. The Magic, without power forward Glen Davis inside, offered little resistance around the basket. "That's just our style of play," Boozer said. "We're aggressive around the basket. And we were resilient at the end. Taj just had a monster game for us." Gibson was making h...

So the details have finally been released for the Brian Scalabrine challenge vs. all of Boston in a game of 1-on-1.

What's the top individual feat in Magic history?

Single game records arent made to be broken, at least not easily. If they were, it wouldnt have taken 19 years for a Magic player to pull down Shaquille ONeals rebounding record. The truth is, single game records are extremely hard to reach. Rarely do you see a player attain one and that is because its a result of many outside variables coming together on one very special night....

Warriors’ Kent Bazemore Clear Leader In Early Running For NBA’s Best Bench Celebrations

It seems the shoes of Brian Scalabrine have been filled. Rookie Kent Bazemore may not log a ton of time on the court, in fact he has only played 28 minutes this year, but he dances every game like no one is watching. The 6′ 5″, 201 lbs shooting guard has slowly become a fan favorite for his celebrations on the bench, and we are also now sold on Mr. Bazemore. Check out the incredible...

LeBron James Walking the Dog All Day Long Against the Magic (Video)

The process of letting the ball roll down the court without touching it in order to save time is called Walking the Dog.  I honestly can say I've never heard that term used before.  Apparently LeBron James loves walking the dog though.  He did it Monday for 10+ seconds against the Orlando Magic, which has to be a record if something as dumb as that was actually considered...

Ish Smith gets his chance

Every injury is an opportunity. When Jameer Nelson and E'Twaun Moore went down with injuries against Washington, Ish Smith was brought to the forefront. He started against Toronto for the fifth time in his career and started again against Miami. In those two games, Smith averaged 7.5 points per game. More tellingly, maybe, Smith scored 13 points on 6-for-12 shooting as...
