Motiejunas Offer: Reasonable, Responsible ...but will it work?

Motiejunas Offer: Reasonable, Responsible ...but will it work?

Back in early July, the Nets excited their fan base with two unconventional and aggressive moves — big offer sheets to Tyler Johnson, for $50 million, and Allen Crabbe, for $70 million. Excitement led to disappointment when the Heat matched on Johnson and the Trail Blazers on Crabbe. Both offers were far more lucrative than what the Nets are offering Donatas Motiejunas. His deal, as discussed by various pundits, is for $37 million, but it appears only $5 million is fully guaranteed. Motiejunas will receive that money upfront when he signs. After that, it gets complicated. By January 10,...

Sixers-Magic Recap: Orlando cruises to easy 105-88 win

Sixers-Magic Recap: Orlando cruises to easy 105-88 win

The Sixers have now lost five straight games. Friday night’s game against the Orlando Magic had all the makings of a Sixers victory. Philadelphia was on three days rest, and had Joel Embiid at their disposal for 28 minutes, his first game with the revised playing restriction. The Magic, losers of five of their last six, were playing their third game in four days. But it was the Sixers who came out looking like they had the dead legs, posting a brutal shooting start to the game, even by Sixers standards. They went seven minutes and 34 seconds between buckets in the first quarter, shooting...

The Yetisburg Address: 2016-17 Week Five

The Yetisburg Address: 2016-17 Week Five

Sacramento’s bench has given the Kings a lift, but the team’s overall late game execution has lost the Kings some games they might have won otherwise. The Kings started off their road trip well with an impressive win against Brooklyn, but stumbled late against both the Wizards and Celtics. They probably would have beat Philadelphia, but the 76ers floor started preemptively weeping at the thought of a Kings whupping and wouldn’t stop in time for the game to start. The High Post Sacramento’s bench unit has started to come alive this year. Guys like Garrett Temple, Omri Casspi and Ty...

Raptors take on depleted Hawks: Preview, Start time, and more

The Raptors look to stay hot as they face a struggling Atlanta Hawks team With the toughest part of the early schedule behind them, the Raptors are enjoying the benefits of playing at home. Their current winning streak is now up to 5, dating back to the win in Houston. The much-maligned defence has taken a step forward and is now up to 17th in efficiency, after holding 3 of their last 4 opponents to under 100 points. Things are looking good as they enter game four of the six-game home-stand. The Hawks got off to a fine start this season, racking up a 9-2 record, and looked like a serious...

Lakers vs. Grizzlies Game Preview: Beat up on a team more beat up than you

Lakers vs. Grizzlies Game Preview: Beat up on a team more beat up than you

The Lakers are in a tough spot at the end of a long road trip, but the Grizzlies might be in an even worse bind. The Los Angeles Lakers were battered and beaten by the Toronto Raptors Friday night but still have a chance to close out their four-game road trip 2-2 when they visit the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday. Splitting the travel-heavy trip while missing both D’Angelo Russell and Nick Young would be huge for the Lakers, and that it would be against the Grizzlies has larger implications. The Lakers need to make ground on one of the playoff teams ahead of them. The Grizzlies, sans Mike...

Sixers-Celtics preview: no JoJo, most certainly a problem

Sixers-Celtics preview: no JoJo, most certainly a problem

Joel Embiid will miss tonight’s game due to scheduled rest The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t won a game against the Boston Celtics since April 14, 2014. In eight tries against the C’s since then, the Sixers have been outscored by an average of almost 15 points per game, repeatedly falling victim to the type of methodical, ball movement-heavy offense that tends to thwart Brett Brown’s squad. With Joel Embiid protecting the rim at an elite level this season, the Sixers have fared much better defensively than in past seasons, with him taking their defense from 110.3 points per 100...

Knicks 118, Timberwolves 114: “O’Quinning and Winning!”

Knicks 118, Timberwolves 114: “O’Quinning and Winning!”

Lee was out, Noah was out, but their replacements helped carry New York to victory. There was much rejoicing in Knicksland when Phil Jackson acquired big man Kyle O’Quinn back in the summer of 2015. Here, we thought, was a young man with the ability to become that which is most rare of MSG commodities: a legit two-way role player. Instead, the bearded lug tantalized fans with his unique skillset all too rarely while mostly hurting the team on both ends of the court. It is those brief flickers of talent which make him far more frustrated to watch than a limited player like, say, Marshall...
