Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Caron gets his ring, Mavs get the win
The Dallas Mavericks are in a perpetual championship celebration. Every time one of their former players comes to town with another team, they hold a nice little ceremony to give the guy his ring. That happened again with Caron Butler last night
And Butler had a chance to win the game... or at least put the Clippers ahead with five seconds left... with a three. Despite the miss, Butler put on a bit of a show against his former teammates, dropping a season high 23. But it was Dirk Nowitzki's 22 that helped the Mavs hold off the Clips.
It was a huge win for Dallas, who now moves within a half game of the Clippers for the third spot in the West.
I know the champs got off to a slow start, but they've won four in a row now. If you haven't looked at the standings in a while, you might be shocked to see Dallas......
BEST OF MAXIM
Jeremy Lin, who wants to be a minister when this is all over, raised the Knicks to Seventh Heaven and the .500 mark last night.
No miracles or scoring heroics needed, just solid point-guard play Mike D’Antoni will take every game.
Before a celebrity-studded Garden crowd that included Mike...
The New York Knicks won their 7th straight game last night with a 100-85 win over the Sacramento Kings. And that graphic above is how the MSG Network decided to celebrate it.See New York, this is why you can’t have nice things. Instead of just letting this great story just happen you have to attempt to be all creative.Via @darrenrovell
Meet the Sacramento Kings Seattle SuperSonics new general manager. Mike Tyson was at MSG last night for the Jeremy Lin experience, but the former world champ didn’t get to see a scoring outburst from Linsanity. He’d have to settle for 10 pts & 13 dimes in a 100-85 Knicks win. The victory – 7th in a row – gets NY back to .500. Don’t think Vegas isn’t taking notice...
With the Knicks and Rangers on winning streaks and Linsanity spreading through the sports world, shares of The Madison Square Garden Co. reached an all-time high Monday.
The Knicks have won a season-best five games in a row, and the basketball team's new point guard Jeremy Lin is a...
Jeremy Lin led the Knicks to a 4-0 week, averaging 27.3 points, 8.3 assists and 2.0 steals.
Jeremy Lin and Ricky Rubio aren't just responsible for reviving their dormant franchises. They also are giving the NBA two fresh young faces to market internationally.
As the first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent, Lin is re-opening doors in Asia that were feared to be closing in the wake of Yao Ming's retirement. He's led the New York Knicks to five...
The Yankees reliever, who is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery at the team's minor-league complex in Tampa, knows what Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin is going through.
TORONTO — Amar’e Stoudemire has a new tattoo teardrop near his right eye in memory of his deceased brother.
On his return last night to the Knicks, that teardrop represented a tear of joy as Stoudemire celebrated wildly on the court with Tyson Chandler after Jeremy Lin’s “miracle’’ 3-point...
We have seen two local sports teams pull stars out of the back of their roster in the past few months. First Victor Cruz for the New York Giants and more recently Jeremy Lin for the New York Knicks. Do the New York Jets have an opportunity to have such luck this season?
The real answer is who knows? You can never really see these things coming. Regardless of Cruz’s monster pre...
