Bucks coach Scott Skiles endured Jrue Holiday on Monday. Then he suffered through Ty Lawson on Tuesday. Well, those two young point guards will face off here in Philadelphia tonight. Asked if these are two of the NBA’s top blossoming point guards, Skiles said, “I think it’s fair to say. Both guys have improved. Holiday, we didn’t have much of an answer for him. As I said after the game, he played a very under-control game. Ty is a little more explosive with his end-to-end speed. He’s a penetrator and a very strong finisher at the rim. They’ve both improved, for sure.” The 76ers guard is playing splendid basketball this season, averaging 15 points per game and 4.4 assists for the 10-3 squad. Against Skiles’ Bucks, Jrue scored a season-high 24 points with five assists and five steals. “He’s very good – very good,” Nuggets coach George Karl said of the 6-4 guard. “He’s big and I love big points guards. And he’s making shots.” We all know about Lawson (er, Chico). The Denver poin

JR Smith Wears His Pants Inside Out

Have you ever been playing basketball and gotten your hand stuck in your pocket?  It’s happened to me before–multiple times, actually.  I’ve also tried to shoot the ball and ended up with a finger tangled up in my drawstring.  It’s a little embarrassing, and JR Smith takes preventative measures to make sure this will never happen to him again.  It’s easy enough to keep your str...

The 76ers are awesome at defense because they like it when you shoot

The notion seems as simple as hitting the open man, running with the ball as far away from the other team as you can, or touching the guy on the other team with the ball as he tries to run toward the your base. Three-pointers count for three points, so they're good. Shots near the basket only count for two points, but you make a whole lot of those shots, so they're good....

Texas Legends Sign Antonio Daniels

Skiles dismayed by Bucks' defense

Defense is a staple for the Bucks. It's bread and butter. Without it, the Bucks are not going to succeed on a consistent basis. So it's understandable that coach Scott Skiles is quite concerned when he sees the numbers - and the visual evidence on the court - so far in this lockout-shortened season.

No Mozgov tonight – “Sandy” Koufos to start for the Nuggets

Denver center Timofey Mozgov will rest his stained back tonight, thus allowing Kosta Koufos to start for the Nuggets. Denver is 2-1 with Koufos starting. He has played OK at times this season, thus earning him a goofy nickname from this reporter. He had a big night in the road win at New Orleans this month, tallying eight points, five boards and three blocks. Also, Denver reserve...

A historical perspective on Nuggets guard Andre Miller’s big night

It takes a village. So team PR man Nick O’Hayre occasionally tweets random Nuggets nuggets (@NickOHayre). Last night in Philadelphia, Denver’s Andre Miller tallied 28 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists off the bench.

NBA TV series features the Denver Nuggets

If you recall, last year there was a show called “The Association,” which detailed the ins-and-outs of the Boston Celtics. It was awesome.

There will be five more episodes during the course of the season (I’ll post the schedule...
