The Last Roster Spot

With Miroslav Raduljica's 2nd 10 day contract set to expire, who should the Wolves sign in his place? Miroslav Raduljica's 2nd 10 day contract expires this week, meaning the Wolves will be faced with a decision about whether or not to keep him on the roster for the entire year. I am not in favor of this for a few reasons. 1.) Raduljica could not earn playing time while Nikola Pekovic was injured and the Wolves had no backup center. He was literally competing against no one and could not win the spot. 2.) Pekovic has returned from injury. I am not convinced this will last the entire year,...

Minnesota is actually 2-5 over their last seven games, and just recently got Nikola Pekovic back from...

Pistons vs. Raptors final score: D.J. Augustin steps up but defense missing as Detroit falls to Toronto 114-110

D.J. Augustin looked more than capable of picking up the point guard reins from the injured Brandon Jennings. DJ Augustin has been here before. A team loses its starting point guard and most dynamic playmaker to a season-ending injury. Last year, Augustin broke out with the Chicago Bulls after stepping in for the injured Derrick Rose. In his first game as the starting point guard for a Pistons team that just lost Brandon Jennings to an achilles injury, Augustin delivered his best game in a Detroit uniform and scored a career-high 35 points. Unfortunately, his offensive efforts weren't...

Thunder road trip review: three wins, two losses mean back to .500

The Thunder just finished their longest and toughest road trip of the season. How did they do? The Oklahoma City Thunder felled back to .500 (22-22) after two consecutive losses against the Atlanta Hawks and The Cleveland Cavaliers. The Thunder played their last three games on road against three of the top teams in the East in the Washington Wizards, Atlanta Hawks, and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The last three games were a good test for the Thunder, where they could have solidified themselves as a good team in the league ready to take on the best by coming out victorious in these games....
