Tuesday nights Knicks vs. Nets game was filled with highlights. Iman Shumpert destroyed Paul Pierce’s ankles and threw down an off-the-backboard alley oop slam dunk, and Andrei Kirilenko also dropped this beautiful behind-the-back no-look dime to Mason Plumlee.

On Tuesday night, the 2014 NHL Draft Lottery was conducted. Though the Sabres had the least amount of points in the league, 52, and had a 25% chance of winning the lotto, the Panthers, who had an 18.8% chance, had their ping pong ball selected first. This comes a year after Colorado beat out Florida for the number one pick last year, though the Cats finished in last place.
On Tuesday night, Chris Paul may’ve made the most skilled play of the year. The best point guard in the league baited Evan Fournier into thinking that he was dribbling back out to the three-point line, when instead, he turned around and spun towards the basket. The move resulted in Paul hitting an easy reverse layup.
There shouldn’t have been one Clipper fan sitting down after...
Looks like this Twitter user is going to enjoy their mentions for the next few days. Nothing like confusing LeBron James for Derrick Rose to announce to the world that you’re an idiot.

Though the Knicks have officially been eliminated from the playoffs, Iman Shumpert is still playing hard. On Tuesday night, the former Georgia Tech point guard absolutely destroyed Paul Pierce’s ankles on this beautiful stepback crossover, thankfully hitting the jumper afterward.
Shumpert also threw down a beautiful off-the-backboard alley-oop dunk in the game.

On Tuesday night in a win against the Nets, Toure Murray threw this beautiful off-the-backboard alley-oop to Iman Shumpert, who came in streaking behind him on a fastbreak. Jeremy Tyler thought Murray was going to throw the ball to him instead, so he was kind of upset afterward.
The play was #2 on SportsCenter’s Top 10.

The Illinois Fighting Illini’s new uniforms might have leaked online for their major sports late Tuesday night. I must say that these uniforms are pretty cool if they are in fact the jerseys.

Chicago Bulls forward Joakim Noah was talking about how nice it is this time of year and seemed in good spirits until a reporter informed him it was snowing. It wasn’t just a few flurries either; it accumulated and made the ground icy. Noah’s good mood evaporated pretty quickly, but I’m guessing he’ll survive a few more days of this treacherous winter.
This isn’t the first time John Daly has done something like this, but man it is tough to watch. How he doesn’t just smash her head with the driver is beyond me.

The Pittsburgh Penguins were giving away jerseys for fan appreciation night when Evgeni Malkin gave Sidney Crosby a solid ball-tap. Crosby winced pretty good so you have to believe Malkin got him pretty good. Good to see the Pens so relaxed going into the playoffs.

Five-Star quarterback Ricky Town, the #2 ranked QB for the 2015 class, was initially committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Following offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier’s hiring at the University of Michigan, Town decided to decommit from Alabama and committed to USC. When he informed head coach Nick Saban of his decision, he told him in an email, and I don’t blame him for...

Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa, who ranks second in La Liga in goals with 26 this year, missed a penalty kick during a game against Getafe on Sunday. The miss may have had something to do with this guy, who pulled down his pants and mooned Costa behind the goal.

On Monday night, Nick Collison set a strong screen on Austin Rivers, and Rivers wasn’t happy. As a result, on the other end of the floor, the former Duke one-and-done attempted to tackle Collison, though he failed to do so. Collison didn’t really do anything wrong, as Rivers instigated the scrum, but generally in these situations both players are ejected.
Maybe Rivers was just...
The name Chris-Douglas Roberts may look familiar to you; Derrick Rose’s former teammate at Memphis, the 6’7” shooting guard has played on a different NBA team each of the last four season. However, it seems as though CDR has maybe found a permanent home this year.

On Monday night, during a meaningless game between the Lakers and Jazz, Jordan Farmar broke Trey Burke’s ankles on a filthy crossover behind half court. Burke is a pretty good on-ball defender, so this probably won’t ever happen to the former Michigan star again.
