Lionel Hollins: "We're going to try to get Brook more shots"

After the Nets lost in Game 1, and both pundits and fans wondered why Brook Lopez took only, seven shots (making six), there was a lot of talk about feeding the beast in Game 2. "We're going to try to get Brook more shots, but that's the game of cat-and-mouse," Lionel Hollins said after a three-hour long practice and video session. But he said little else and was, as Stefan Bondy put it, "understandably coy" about details. Both Deron Williams and Joe Johnson admitted they need to do better. Following the Nets 99-91 loss, there was a lot of second guessing, led by Isiah Thomas and Rick...

Bucks vs. Bulls Game 2 preview: Chicago looks to go up 2-0

Kirk Hinrich is out for the second straight game. The Bulls opened the 2015 NBA playoffs in just about the perfect way on Saturday. Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler had big games, the three-pointers were falling and Milwaukee looked incapable of consistently scoring against the Bulls' defense in the half court. It was only one game, but it couldn't have gone much better. On Monday night, the Bulls will look to push the series to 2-0 by defending the United Center vs. the Bucks yet again. The spotlight is going to be on Derrick Rose once again. Rose was tremendous in Game 1, finishing with 23...

Detroit Tigers' Brad Ausmus explains decision not to replace Victor Martinez with pinch runner late in tie game

Ausmus said it was simply too early and Martinez is simply too good offensively to make that move then. DETROIT -- Victor Martinez represented the go-ahead run when he stood at second base with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Detroit Tigers did not have a runner reach second base in the first six innings Monday night in what turned out to be a 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees. Left-hander CC Sabathia was being especially stingy, so Martinez represented a huge run for the Tigers. Martinez is battling a left knee issue, so why did Tigers...
