The ragged Spurs' title defense has finally come to life, and the resurgence of their point guard is the reason why. We all expected the Spurs to go on a run sooner or later. They're The Spurs, after all. But a four-game losing streak...Show More Summary
One of the biggest fallers may not be the team you expect. One of the key refrains of the NBA stretch run is that the Washington Wizards have shown their true selves. A team too thin on the wing to survive an injury, a team too overmatched in terms of strategy to beat good opponents, and a team with a completely underwhelming coach. Show More Summary
Being dunked on is the worst. Being dunked on by a guy in sandals who came to the game wearing a Disney backpack? You will never live it down. It was in the fall of 2007 and I was just returning from feeding baby animals in the woods. Show More Summary
That and much more in Monday's NBA newsletter. SUBSCRIBE! Good morning. Let's basketball. RUDY GOBERT CHANGES EVERYTHING: As soon as the Jazz traded Enes Kanter and promoted Rudy Gobert, their defense has been fire. Paul Flannery talks...Show More Summary
Brook Lopez is either an incredibly lucky dude, or he's got some superhero level foresight and reflexes. It's probably the former, because he totally looks like he's just scared and flailing at the ball. h/t @talkhoops
Big Baby's defense is a three-step process: 1. Reach in... WITH MY FACE. 2. Get hit in said face. 3. Realize you're hit, then flop to the ground like a fish out of water. IT WORKED! The refs reviewed the play and still chose to call this as an offensive foul while the crowd booed like crazy.
Tim Duncan's bad game says more about his over 1,300 good games. Tim Duncan had a bad day today. He went 0-for-8 from the field in the Spurs' 116-105 win over the Bulls, finishing with three points. This doesn't happen often. In fact, in Tim Duncan's 1,310 games,today's is the first in which he didn't record a made field goal. That's pretty amazing. Show More Summary
The Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Clippers don't like one another -- and it makes for fun basketball. Draymond Green was pissed off on Christmas Day. His Golden State Warriors were "too nice" in a 100-86 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Show More Summary

He learned a hard lesson about trash-talking MJ. The Pacers legend accidentally ran his legendary mouth as a rookie in an exhibition game against Jordan. It didn't end well. At all.
This is so bad. Zaza Pachulia. That's... not good. That's REALLY not good.
It's hard not to feel bad for Beasley. Poor Michael Beasley, he's trying so hard to guard DeMarcus Cousins. Sadly, it's didn't go very well.
Yet another reminder that AD is really good. While Zach Randolph wasn't exactly demonstrating any blazing breakaway speed, Anthony Davis still did a great job following the play and making the block. He was probably inspired after watching Kentucky's Karl-Anthony Towns block everything Florida put up earlier in the day.
The rookie forward is proving he could be a key piece of the Bulls' future with his recent play. Waiting for players stashed overseas can test a fanbase's patience. Instead of watching clips of Dario Saric's play in Europe, 76ers fans could be enjoying the tenacity of Elfrid Payton on a nightly basis. Show More Summary
Atlanta beat Cleveland again thanks in part to stifling defense in the first quarter. Did Cleveland discover an adjustment that was too late to stem the tide Friday, but could be used in a playoff series? The Hawks and Cavaliers put together a treat on Friday night. Show More Summary
The pass was nice. The mid-play high-stepping celebration was better. He found Cody Zeller for a wide-open dunk... then did this: Lance Stephenson must go. His people need him. You are so not allowed to make an image of him being blown over to the other side of the court by himself.
He's not ready to play yet, but the Sixers' big man prospect looks good. Joel Embiid's first year under NBA contract hasn't been ideal. He's mainly famous for his weird tweets and reports he was getting fat while sidelined with a foot injury. Show More Summary
One short clip that illustrates a subtle Wes Matthews skill that the Blazers will miss dearly as he recovers from a torn Achilles. Wes Matthews' value to the Trail Blazers can be measured by his three-point shooting and tough defense, but they'll miss him most because of the way he fit with their other starters.

New Orleans is a half game out of the No. 8 seed in the West despite a terrible run of injuries. Shouldn't they be dead by now? On Feb. 22, the Pelicans announced Anthony Davis would miss one to two weeks after re-injuring his shoulder. Show More Summary
