Jazz-Timberwolves Preview

Trey Burke has done very little to instill any confidence that he's the Utah Jazz's long-term answer at point guard, struggling with his shot all season while occasionally flashing the potential that made him a lottery pick. Two of his best performances came against the Minnesota Timberwolves - along with one of his absolute worst. That stinker came just a week ago, and Burke might...

Houston Rockets Week that Was 2/22-2/28

While neither the Nets nor Wolves will be a postseason factor, the Clippers are currently projected to match up with the Rockets in the first round, so a win against them after six straight losses is an encouraging sign for Houston’s postseason...

Bledsoe For The WIN

I really don't like this 7 game slate on Saturday night.  If you want to take the night off or play less volume I wouldn't argue against it.  There isn't a player over 9k on Draft Kings if that tells you what kind of night it’s going to be. Point Guards Ricky Rubio has really been fantastic the past 5 games.  His price has come up but still not to the level where his play...

Garnett Offers Wolves Youth a Chance at Similar Legacy

Back in the late 90’s, before I was legally allowed to drive an automobile, I would await a ride home from a small house in East Bloomington where I studied drums with an old man who was just shy of 5 feet tall. There, we would spend about an hour per week studying and writing jazz fills, learning odd time signatures, sight-reading snare drum solos, mastering rudiments and building...

Watch James Harden shatter Ricky Rubio's poor ankles

What evidence do we have that James Harden is more "unforgiving hurricane" than "merciful human being?" Oh, not much...besides this humilating/brilliant clip of him dropping poor Ricky Rubio with a blink-and-you're-unconscious crossover.  Just look at this thing! The degree of difficulty is unfathomable. Not only does Harden make a quality defender go numb below the waist, but he...
