Despite the fact that the NY Knicks are currently undefeated through their first two games of play in 2021-22 and are coming off of a year where they saw their first playoff run since 2012-13, there are some who still believe that this team’s success from 2020-21 was a mere fluke.

Game Preview: Knicks vs. Magic- 10/24/21

Photo by Sam Greenwood/ Again. The Knicks take on the Orlando Magic Sunday night for the first time in ... 48 hours. In case you weren’t watching on Friday, they traveled to Orlando an annihilated the Magic in a 121-96 victory. Now the two teams will clash at MSG. Will we get more of the same? Maybe. The Magic are clearly one of the worst, if not the worst team in the NBA. They are extremely young. The Knicks did what they were supposed to do on Friday, namely jump on them early and make them quit — “take their heart,” as Clyde said on the broadcast. Still, the...

Effort Marks Blazers’ Win Over Suns

Effort Marks Blazers’ Win Over Suns

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports As they work to break down old habits and find new ones, wins like the one over Phoenix matter. The Portland Trail Blazers walked away Saturday night with a dominant win over the Phoenix Suns. Anyone who watched could see a difference on the court, and Jason Quick of the Athletic reports that rookie head coach Chauncey Billups noticed as well. “There were times out there,” Billups said, trying to contain a smile, “when it looked like we may have had six guys on the floor. People were giving just so many multiple efforts...

How Norman Powell Became The Grind

How Norman Powell Became The Grind

Steve Dykes-USA TODAY Sports Before injuring his knee against the Suns, Powell spoke with AJ McCord of KOIN about his work ethic and signing with the Blazers. The Portland Trail Blazers have had a mixed bag to the start of their season, with a first game loss followed by a win in which Norman Powell injured his knee. It is just illustrative of the challenges the Blazers face this season, with a new coach, new-look bench, and a long season ahead of them. That said, the team isn’t shying away from a challenge. AJ McCord of KOIN writes that the Blazers have been saying...

Adrian’s Angles: Are The Blazers Too Thin At The Big Man Positions?

Photo by Rocky Widner/NBAE via The Blazers roster is set but what happens if the injury-prone frontcourt becomes unavailable? Portland Trail Blazers fans are arguably more enthused about their new reserve backcourt compared to its predecessor. Larry Nance Jr. and Cody Zeller have been solid during the team’s first two outings against the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns. Good thing, too, as the prodigious pair will need to address serious defensive holes left by Carmelo Anthony and Enes Kanter, halting opposition scoring when Jusuf Nurkic and Robert Covington...

Utah Jazz: Ranking Jordan Clarkson among Sixth Man of the Year candidates

The Utah Jazz enjoyed rare depth last season, boasting the two leading candidates for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award in Jordan Clarkson and Joe Ingles.

The Chicago Bulls haven’t even reached their final form yet

This Chicago Bulls offense is just getting started as the defense appears to be in mid-season form following their 97-82 victory over the already-floundering Detroit Pistons. The latter was missing first-overall pick Cade Cunningham, who has yet to play this season. But the Bulls have been without top bench-scoring option Coby White.

The Sixers head to Oklahoma City to tackle the Thunder

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports The 1-1 Philadelphia 76ers travel to Oklahoma City to take on the winless Thunder. The Sixers opened the year with a road win over the New Orleans Pelicans. Then they dropped the home opener to the Brooklyn Nets in heartbreaking fashion. The Sixers were, of course, without Ben Simmons in each of those contests. The former top pick from 2016, who would like to be traded, got himself ejected from practice ahead of the Pelicans game. Friday it was reported that he told the team he is not mentally ready to play at this time, ahead of the Nets...
