Devin Harris becoming reliable outside weapon for the Mavericks

Harris has become the Mavericks' most accurate outside shooter this season -- and with the Rondo trade, it couldn't have come at a better time. Mavs fans fixated with spacing on the offensive end of the floor had to breathe a sigh of relief when ESPN scribe Marc Stein broke the package going out to Boston in a blockbuster deal for point guard Rajon Rondo. Reserve guard Devin Harris will remain with the team and his career-best three point shooting numbers can only be aided by Rondo's arrival. Harris' running mate in the second unit, Brandan Wright, was the necessary centerpiece to get a...

Deron Williams (calf) out against Pistons

NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams will not play Sunday night against the Detroit Pistons at Barclays Center due to a low-grade right calf strain.

Pacers final score: Pacers close out Wolves 100-96

C.J. Miles scored 28 to help Indiana snap their eight game road losing streak, winning late against Minnesota. Things got tough for the Indiana Pacers, who appeared early in the third quarter en route to a convincing win, as they watched the Minnesota Timberwolves erase a 19-point deficit, creating an exciting game late. David West broke a 94-94 tie with a driving layup in the final minute, an Anthony Wiggins turnover giving Indiana the ball and the win. C.J. Miles was a big catalyst for Indiana's success, scoring 28 points on 10-18 shooting, getting plenty of help from Roy Hibbert and...

Do the Rockets have enough assets to make another trade?

With newly acquired Corey Brewer, is this current Houston Rockets roster the one that will be competing in April? A day after the Dallas Mavericks won the Rajon Rondo sweepstakes, the Houston Rockets acquired wing Corey Brewer from the Minnesota Timberwolves for Troy Daniels and a broken-down washing machine. The Rockets also received Ronny Turiaf, who was then flipped into Alexey Shved, who might actually be competent*. Brewer was involved in several trade rumors linked to the Rockets prior to the three-team deal and it's no surprise that it went down. *The 6'6 Russian shooting guard...

Calling Out Bob Ryan

Calling Out Bob Ryan

I used to love Bob Ryan.   I remember the way he championed Cowens in the seventies, making sure that no one failed to see what a great player Big Red was, making sure that no one missed the fact that he played a lot bigger than his statistics.  I remember too the way he criticized Red Auerbach - another Big Red - for some of the moves he made after the 1976 championship.  For once Auerbach seemed to put his ego and the team's money ahead of his  basketball heart, trading Silas and confronting Havlicek amidst contract disputes (as I recall).  Bob Ryan stood for Celtics Pride during those...

Pistons vs. Nets final score: a team falls in Brooklyn

The Pistons couldn't take advantage of a huge game from Andre Drummond, falling to the Nets 110-105. Just another loss. The Detroit Long-Two's. I know it needs some work. The game started with a long 2 from Jennings, followed by a comically off target long 2 from Josh Smith.  The Nets were moving the ball expertly right away, leading to a barrage of open jump shots being hit from Brooklyn's array of wily vets. KCP settled things down with a pair of 3's, but it was uphill all quarter long, highlighted by Josh Smith's handles letting him down on a fast break leading to an easy bucket for the...

Thunder vs. Pelicans score: KD-less Oklahoma City falls late to New Orleans, 99-101

Stagnant late game offense, an explosion from Anthony Davis, and dreadful bench post defense doomed the Thunder to a loss in this one. Box Score | The Bird Writes Recap The Oklahoma City Thunder, in their second full game without the injured Kevin Durant, lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 101-99. Anthony Davis absolutely dominated the game with 38 points on 16-22 shooting with 12 boards. Serge Ibaka was nowhere to be found, only registering 6 points on 2-8 shooting with no blocks. Still, the Thunder were able to get a good performance out of Russell Westbrook, who led them with 29 points on...
