NBA 24/7 365:
Since being made the second overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2009, Hasheem Thabeet has recorded just 15 assists. With his hilariously-poor assist-to-turnover ratio of .217, one doesn’t really expect Thabeet to make any sort of pass that ends up in the hands of a teammate, let alone a between-the-legs dish that leads directly to a scoring opportunity (and for his own team!). That’s why I nearly spit out my drink and fell out of my chair when I saw him do what he did to Matt Bonner, and that’s also why I became borderline upset when Nick Collison Raef LaFrentz’d the highlight.
Fortunately, the baseline official had his priorities straight. He knew he’d seen a clean block by Tiago Splitter, but he also recognized an opportunity to stop the action and assure that this gem was given the immediate replay it had earned. That’s a good bad call, ref. Props.
Since I’m not going to make any further posts about this game I suppose I ought to mention Tony Parker’s game-winning jump shot. Parker was completely unguarded because Russell Westbrook followed Danny Green’s eyes to the wrong side of the floor.
Excitement, as experienced by Stephen Jackson, Tony Parker, and Tim Duncan.

ALL THE WAY
While it's not surprising that a Blake Griffin dunk has made this website....this might be his first professional coast-to-coast slam to make it on Outside the Boxscore. Watch as Griffin corrals the rebound on the other side of the court and takes the distance for the two-handed slam against the Memphis Grizzlies:
The beef between Zach Randolph and Blake Griffin that was evident during the playoffs last season carried over into the 2012-2013 season.

In the play seen above, Randolph just took down Griffin during the fourth quarter...
Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph threw Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin down to the ground during Wednesday night's NBA season opener for both teams at the Staples Center.
It happened after Chris Paul hit a jumper with 4:18 left in the fourth quarter, where Randolph grabbed Griffin from behind and pulled him down to the ground. Although Randolph and Griffin...
The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers clearly have some bad blood between them, but that in no way excuses the actions of Zach Randolph here. What he did to Griffin flagrant and dangerous. Randolph can’t even pretend like it was an accident or something that occurred during the play, it was just blatantly illegal.I would expect a fine coming, especially because it...
