NBA 24/7 365:
Welcome to the first installment of my weekly post where I, Scott from Crabdribbles.com, bring to you the best performance and top five plays from the past week in the D-League. It’s pretty simple, really — if you play well and your team wins, you have a good chance to secure the week’s top honors. And as far as the to five plays plays go, simply throw down a thunderous dunk or score a game-winner and you’ll surely grab my attention. With that said, let’s get straight to it.
Performance of the Week
There were several great performances this week. Here are four which just missed the cut:
Sean Singletary put up 38 points, nine assists, and eight rebounds vs. Vipers on Monday night.
Andrew Goudelock scored 28 points and the game-winning floater vs. Legends on Monday night.
Luke Harangody posted a huge double-double (29/17) vs. BayHawks on Saturday night.
Mike Davis had a career-high 25 rebounds vs. Legends on Saturday night.
But it really came down to a pair of performanc...

Glen Davis catches Gerald Wallace mid-air after the Nets’ forward makes a layup and nonchalantly carries him rather than letting him hit the deck:
via NY Post:
Nets guard C.J. Watson was warned by the NBA for flopping Thursday for a play in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s win at Minnesota. The play was called an offensive foul on J.J. Barea, but after the game Watson admitted that he did indeed flop, giving Barea “a taste of his own medicine,” and only hoped that he wouldn’t get fined by the league. Well, luckily...
The NBA is reportedly flexing its muscle at a Brooklyn man named Mike Sorisi. According to the New York Post, Sorisi, 26, is a passionate Knicks fan who lives in the heart of Brooklyn Nets territory. In an effort rally other Knicks fans living in what is now enemy turf, Sorisi is said to have coined the term “Knicklyn” to represent Knicks’ fans who are faced with rooting...
Anyone who plays basketball in front of thousands of people for a living is going to end up getting photographed and/or videotaped in some compromising positions and/or doing some pretty weird looking stuff. It’s simply inevitable (…isn’t that right, Kobe Bryant?). That being said, Glen Davis seems to appear in various types of unusual photos and videos much more frequently...
Sometimes NBA players have nowhere to hid from flying balls and during tonight's Orlando Magic/Brooklyn Nets game, Nets forward Andray Blatche took one right to the mug.With less than three minutes to play, Orlando reserve Kyle O'Quinn was trying to save a possession and fired a ball going out of bounds at Blatche.That's when Andray world got a little shook up:
Our old friend Big Baby is used to having people jumping on him (like the Nate Robinson/Shrek and Donkey moment). So I guess it was his natural reaction to catch Gerald Wallace in mid-air as he went up for a lay-up.

Now the big boys are coming to Barclays Center.

The Brooklyn Nets have been playing better basketball under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo, but have dropped two in a row after having problems defending the paint. The outlook for the Orlando Magic appears much worse, as they've lost five straight heading into a five-game road trip.
Brooklyn will try to shore up its interior defense...
P.J. Carlesimo has started Reggie Evans at power forward for the last 13 games.
Keith Bogans and Joe Johnson lit up the Magic from three-point range tonight, combining for 25 points on 6-11 shooting from behind the arc
Another poor third quarter made the chances of an easy Nets win much more slim, but ultimately wasn't bad enough to allow the lowly Orlando Magic into seizing the lead from the home team tonight at the Barclays Center. In sweeping...
