Pacers continue to be abysmal as losses pile up

It's been a pretty disgusting season thus far if you are a Pacers fan, and last year's miracle run to the second round appears to have been a fluke.Granted, it's probably still too early to write off this team, but the signs have rarely been worse. On Tuesday, they scored just 72 points in a loss against the Raptors, and this was after managing to hold the Raptors to...

Utah pulls out triple-overtime win at Toronto

TORONTO -- The second 3-pointer of Al Jefferson's NBA career bounced tantalizingly before dropping through the rim. It was the start of something big for the Utah Jazz.

Jose Cuervo Vuela

The NBA had its second triple double of the year, and it was earned by Jose Calderon. He scored 13 points, 10 assists, and 10 rebounds. He has been averaging a whopping 1.0 rebound per game, so this was a wee bit of a surprise. Despite that, he has been a solid source of assists and threes, and he won’t hurt you with points (11.0 per game), so it’s a bit puzzling that he is...
