Ryan Anderson’s six 3-pointers, highlighted by his off-balance rainbow from the left wing at the third-quarter horn, left the Charlotte Hornets little choice but to pay close attention to the Pelicans’ sharp-shooting forward in the waning moments a tie game. That gave Anthony Davis the opening he needed to convert Jrue Holiday’s alley-oop lob into […]
Gay scored 24 points and hit the decisive shot with 0.9 seconds left to give the Sacramento Kings a 103-101 victory over the Jazz on Thursday.

He tied a season high with 37 points and pushed both hands up in the air after several powerful dunks, drawing a rise out of the nearly 20,000 fans at the Wells Fargo […]
This is becoming such a regular occurrence, it doesn’t even shock us anymore. Against the Kings, Steph Curry releases a three from the corner, and while the ball is still in mid air, does a full 180 to face the Sacramento bench and give them a few words before the ball swishes through the hoop!
It’s rare to see a Curry getting cooked, but that’s what Jordan Clarkson did last night. Admittedly, it wasn’t Steph, but his brother Seth, who Clarkson gave the business before getting to the hoop for the lay up!
The NBA seems to be missing a trick recently – with their commentator-less Top 10 plays yesterday, and now, missing out this nasty dunk from Rudy Gobert on Montrezl Harrell. The 7’2″ Gobert took the feed from Harrell before throwing it in, Blake Griffin style, over Harrell.
Kobe caught everyone by surprise last night in Sacramento, cutting backdoor to finish the nice lob pass from Jordan Clarkson and throw down! DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and the Kings blew all of a 27-point lead in the second half before beating the Lakers 118-115 on Thursday night in […]

Kristaps Porzingis has been getting more attention this season for all the bodies he has been catching, but on this one, courtesy of Hassan Whiteside, he was on the wrong end. Wade and Whiteside run the pick and roll to perfection, leaving poor Porzingis getting posterized as he tries to play help.
