Stephen Curry and Draymond Green made several highlight plays to get the job done for the home side at the Chase Center.The duo didn’t even have to feature in the fourth quarter with six Golden State Warriors scoring in double digits to close out the game with ease. They even restricted the Cleveland Cavaliers well who shot less than 40% from the field.Cleveland Cavaliers get going early but Golden State Warriors eventually take controlIt was a fairly close affair in the first quarter. Stephen Curry stepped up for the Golden State Warriors and scored a quickfire 16 points but the Cleveland Cavaliers responded well. The likes of Collin Sexton and Jarrett Allen kept them in the running.Things changed towards the end of the second quarter where the Golden State Warriors went on a 23-8 lead to finish the first half with a 10-point advantage. The Cleveland Cavaliers couldn’t recover from there as the Dubs extended their advantage in the third quarter thanks to the playmaking of Draymond Green.The Warriors have held their opponent to 105 points or less, and 40.6% FG shooting or less, in 4 of the last 5 games— Grant Liffmann (@GrantLiffmann) February 16, 202128 games into the season, the Warriors are the 8th seed in the West with a 15-13 record.Not too bad for the projected 14th seed ahead of the season. pic.twitter.com/GYc8ifhLdt— r/Warriors (@GSWReddit) February 16, 2021I’d say it’s not the Cavs night.

Stephen Curry continued his tremendous campaign with another outstanding performance. He had 36 points for the Golden State Warriors tonight on 13-of-19 shooting including seven made threes. He’s on course to become only the third player in NBA history to record a 5-40-90 clip in multiple seasons alongside Larry Bird and Steve Nash.Curry was aided in his efforts by Draymond Green who’s been flawless as the primary playmaker for the Golden State Warriors. He’s averaged 11.6 assists per game since the start of February and had 16 dimes against the Cleveland Cavaliers.Steph Curry is averaging 30/6/5 on 50/44/94 splits.He’s carrying a team missing Klay Thompson and ALL 3 big men to a playoff spot in the West.

LA Lakers 105-122 Denver Nuggets: 5 hits and flops as Nikola Jokic’s latest triple-double trumps LeBron James and co. 



The Denver Nuggets routed the LA Lakers 122-105 to record their third straight victory in surprisingly easy fashion. The Sunday night affair was a marquee matchup that featured two title contenders who met in the Western Conference Finals last season. It was Nuggets star Nikola Jokic who came out on top as he outplayed fellow All-Star LeBron James.Anthony Davis left the game in the first half and never returned after a collision with Jokic aggravated an Achilles injury.Check out our 5 hits and flops from the LA Lakers-Denver Nuggets game:Hit: Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets)At the half, Nikola Jokic had 23 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and he continued to dominate the LA Lakers without scoring a single point in the second half. He had a triple-double by the end of the third quarter for the Denver Nuggets, who repeatedly found themselves open for 3-pointers thanks to Jokic’s presence on the floor.The big man orchestrated the Nuggets offense to perfection as his pinpoint passing found cutters and shooters all night long. Jokic’s board work was exceptional as well, as he grabbed 16 rebounds to go along with 10 assists.Flop: LeBron James (LA Lakers)

LeBron James had 19 points at halftime and looked like he was on his way to a big game considering the absence of Anthony Davis. Instead, James had a poor showing in the second half, finishing the game with only 22 points despite registering a near-triple-double with 10 rebounds and nine assists.He was passive offensively in the third quarter when the Denver Nuggets were slowly pulling away. The LA Lakers needed James to be superhuman in this game but he was a mere mortal in the last two quarters.Hit: Facundo Campazzo and Zeke Nnaji (Denver Nuggets)Facundo Campazzo and Zeke Nnaji did an incredible job taking advantage of their opportunity to play against the defending champion LA Lakers. Denver Nuggets coach Michael Malone boosted the rookies’ confidence by inserting them in opportune moments, and the two responded accordingly.Campazzo had 15 points on 4-of-8 shooting from the field, with three of those coming from beyond the arc. Nnaji had 16 points on a red-hot 4-of-5 shooting from three and 5-of-7 overall.Flop: Montrezl Harrell (LA Lakers)

There was a lack of passion and aggression on the part of Montrezl Harrell in this game. Last year’s Sixth Man of the Year could only muster four points and six rebounds in a lackluster 24 minutes of play.LA Lakers coach Frank Vogel could also be blamed for Harrell’s performance because of how late he inserted his big man in the third quarter. However, Harrell was ultimately the one on the floor and he has to own up to his shortcomings.Hit: Jamal Murray (Denver Nuggets)Much has been said about Jamal Murray’s inconsistency this season, but he showed his good side on Sunday night. Murray scored 25 points and made 4-of-10 from 3-point range to help the Denver Nuggets cruise to the win. Jamal Murray #27 of the Denver Nuggets warms up prior to the game against the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena on January 27, 2021 in Miami, Florida. (Photo by Michael Reaves/Getty Images)The LA Lakers didn’t seem ready for how aggressive he was as Murray attacked the defense inside and out. He also tallied six rebounds and four assists.Also Read: NBA Trade Rumors: 3 teams that should target John Collins

Recent stretch shows Carmelo Anthony could be Portland’s X-Factor as he climbs NBA all-time scoring ranks


Always a prolific scorer, Melo still has something to give in Portland.Image: Getty ImagesWho doesn’t love nostalgia?Carmelo Anthony’s fourth quarter last night was arguably the most ‘Vintage Melo’ we’ve seen since his joining the Portland Trail Blazers in November 2019. While it was a season-high 24-point showing in a victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, and Anthony’s had seven higher point totals in Portland — including one in last year’s playoffs — last night’s fourth quarter offered a throwback to the takeover Melo that New York and Denver folks grew fond of at his peak.When you simply watched the bounce at which Anthony springs off, the fluidity in finding the desired spots to attack opposing defenders, it felt like watching a standard Melo highlight reel circa 2012-13 during his scoring championship season with the 54-win Knicks. But outside of a recent 1-for-8 showing five days ago, it’s what Anthony’s shown during his highs in an otherwise inconsistent 18th NBA season. The 36-year-old future Hall of Famer recently passed Oscar Robertson for 12th on the all-time scoring list, and is trailing Hakeem Olajuwon by only 200 points, a number he should amass by April, barring any setbacks. In all likelihood, Anthony — who is 663 points behind Moses Malone’s ninth spot, should crack the top 10 if he plays a 19th season. It’s easy to view the surface level metrics, the mid-range sweet spots, and the lack of defensive upside, and deem that the Brooklyn-born swingman has no place in this NBA — and prior to February 2, you might’ve had a convincing argument. But especially on a depleted roster, there is indeed still a place for Anthony in this league. Yes, he’s shooting 39 percent from the floor this season, which was 36 percent before his recent five-game stretch, and sure, the rebounding is numerically the worst of his career both per game and per 36, but positive Melo outbursts have been conducive to the Blazers’ success as of late. In his last five games, Anthony has scored 21, 22, 2, 23, and 24 points, in that order. Portland has won four of those previous five, and you could guess which one they lost. Anthony’s netted 18 or more points on seven occasions this season, and Portland’s gone 6-1 during that stretch, all of which were performances of at least 43 percent shooting from the field. This season, the team is 14-10, remaining above water despite brutal injuries to C.J. McCollum, Jusuf Nurkić, and Zach Collins. Last season, when Portland finished 35-39 and barely obtained the Western Conference’s eighth seed, in 18 games where Melo — a full-time starter — dropped at least 20 points, the Blazers went 12-6.The consistency of these high-scoring Vintage Melo outputs is what you seek if you’re the Blazers, though. Melo hasn’t quite been an Immanuel Quickley-like Kingda Ka roller coaster, but he had been mostly down prior to this month, where he’s now on his best five-game stretch of the season. Even with that two-point performance, he’s still averaging 18.4 points on 47.8 percent shooting from the field and 54.2 percent from three during this stretch.G/O Media may get a commissionThe career-low rebounding is concerning, but it’s not his primary agenda for being there. His offensive rating is 106, which is bottom half on the team, but his personal best since 2016-17, his last go-round with the Knicks. The 115 defensive rating is tied for a career-low set last season, but it’s tied for the fifth-best on this defensively-challenged roster, where the worst D-ratings are held by Rodney Hood, Damian Lillard, Anfernee Simons, and Gary Trent Jr. Most advanced metrics aren’t favorable to Anthony this season, where he generally ranks in the bottom half of the team in most categories, like box plus-minus, value over replacement player, true shooting percentage, and rebound percentage, the latter of which is actually 0.1 lower than Simons, a 6-foot-3 combo guard averaging just over two boards per contest. The major room for improvement for Anthony is the 2-point shooting, which is in a much better place today than it was before 10 days ago. On two’s, Melo’s at a team-low 39.4 percent (unless you count Keljin Blevins’s 16.7 percent, but he’s logged 38 minutes all season). The key to Anthony turning this around and becoming a more consistent threat for the Blazers to ride along with Lillard (and eventually McCollum) offensively this season are the twos in his usual sweet spot between 16 and 24 feet, a frowned-upon shot in today’s NBA, but one Anthony’s executed as well as anyone over the past 20 years.The two-point shooting percentages for Anthony are as follows: 47.1 from 3-feet and in, 42.3 percent between 3-and-10 feet, 40 percent between 10-and-16 feet, and just 35.1 percent between 16 feet and three-point-range. Just last season, Melo’s percentages from these same spots were 53.0, 47.6, 41.9, and 38.0. It’s critical Melo converts his 2s, especially from 10-feet out, because his usage rate of 22.6 trails only Lillard (31.3) and McCollum (28.4), who has missed 10 games and counting. But perhaps what would be most helpful is converting more long 2s into 3s, where he is 39 percent on over four attempts per game. Whatever it is, Anthony’s proven he could still be the team’s X-Factor, they’ll just need him to do it more consistently, which we’re starting to see. .

NBA doubles-down on national anthem, will require all teams to play it before games


Mark Cuban, who decided to stop playing the national anthem before Mavs games, has now been directed to do otherwise by the league.Image: Getty ImagesThe NBA is doing the most right now.The league is currently willing to die on a hill that might be as unnecessary as a winter coat in Miami.After Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban decided to stop playing the National Anthem before Dallas home games this season, the NBA responded today by releasing a statement that said all teams will have to play the national anthem per league policy.The craziest part of the story is that Cuban and the Mavericks had not played the Anthem at any of their 13 of their home games so far this season, and no one even noticed until a few days ago. The team allowed fans to attend games for the first time all season on Monday. The Mavericks will play the Anthem moving forward, starting with their game against Atlanta on Wednesday. Cuban released a statement following the decision.G/O Media may get a commissionCuban also joined The Jump today to address the controversy surrounding his decisions on the anthem.ESPN reported that Cuban originally decided to cut the anthem in November after consulting with NBA commissioner Adam Silver. The National Anthem has been controversial in the sports landscape for years now. Colin Kaepernick and a plethora of other athletes have demonstrated during the song to bring attention to racial injustice in this country. The NBA relaxed its policy on forcing players to stand for the national anthem during the Orlando bubble after months of increased racial tensions following the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor.For many Americans especially people of color, the anthem invoked many emotions that aren’t positive. A lot of Black and brown people have a complex relationship with America that isn’t represented through the Star-Spangled Banner. The song itself was written by a slave owner and has racist lyrics.Aside from all of the problematic issues that swirl around this song, what makes this conversation even more aggravating is the fact that many people can’t even justify the need for playing the anthem before a sporting event outside of the fact that it is a common practice. We’ve been unnecessarily playing this song before sporting events for decades with little benefit from it just for the heck of it.Do they play the national anthem before you go to work every day? Do they play it before Congress tries to make a law? Do they play it before the Grammys?NoSo what makes the anthem so important that it deserves to be played before every sporting event?Absolutely nothing, it’s honestly just a big waste of everyone’s time and energy. And that’s no disrespect to the women and men of the military who risk their lives for our safety. If we are keeping it real, playing the anthem doesn’t benefit them anyway. What would benefit them would be supporting causes that help make veterans’ lives better once they leave the service or getting Congress to pass legislation to help veterans adjust to regular life once they are off the battlefield.The NBA’s position on keeping the anthem is ridiculous and unnecessary. Cuban tried to free us and the league from the pointless gesture but the NBA couldn’t see the bigger picture. .

Kyle Lowry’s potential trade destinations if/when Raptors decide it’s ‘time to move on’


Image: Getty ImagesLowry, the Philadelphia native, the Villanova alum, returns home. The Sixers are currently first in the Eastern Conference with a 17-7 record in the Doc Rivers and Daryl Morey era, but no one NBA team has a stranglehold on this oddity of a season thus far. Joel Embiid has looked like an MVP frontrunner, Tobias Harris should command All-Star consideration at the absolute minimum, and Ben Simmons, for better or worse, still looks like the same guy he was as a rookie. While the team’s playmaking could improve, Simmons is averaging his usual 8.0 assists per game, but as great as Embiid has been, working with Lowry would decrease his offensive workload, give the Sixers someone who could create a shot in the game’s final two minutes, and give the roster a leader it needs. What people forget about the Embiid and Simmons pairing is that they were at their best in 2018-19 when Jimmy Butler was present to carry the load. You could see the semifinal stats against the Raptors that season for yourselves. Lowry could have a similar impact, and it appears that Embiid may be ready to shoulder the responsibility, but a true point guard (who is willing to shoot from the outside) would help. It will matter come playoff time, and Lowry is a proven champion. Regarding an actual deal, the Sixers have several expirings, most notably Danny Green’s $15.4 million. They have several young pieces, led by Matisse Thybulle, Tyrese Maxey, and Shake Milton, who are all making less than $3 million each this season, and they have most of their first-round picks going forward, which were discussed in the Harden deal before he went to Brooklyn. They also have Ben Simmons at nearly $30 million, and he’s maxed out through 2025. Again, just saying. .

Brooklyn Nets vs Detroit Pistons Prediction & Match Preview – February 9th, 2021 | NBA Season 2020-21



Brooklyn Nets will head over to the Motor City on Tuesday to take on the slumping Detroit Pistons for their first meeting of the 2020-21 NBA season.The Brooklyn Nets have hit a rough patch as they enter this contest on a two-game losing streak. Two-time NBA champion Kevin Durant’s absence from their lineup has hampered the team’s performance of late. Head coach Steve Nash is hopeful Kyrie Irving will rejoin the team for their matchup with the Detroit Pistons. Irving missed their last outing against the Philadelphia 76ers due to a finger injury.Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons are heading towards the NBA lottery as they have solidified their position as the worst-performing team in the Eastern Conference this season. The Detroit Pistons are coming off a double-overtime loss to the LA Lakers in their previous matchup that has extended their losing streak to four games.Match DetailsFixture: Brooklyn Nets vs Detroit Pistons – NBA Season 2020-21Date & Time: Tuesday, February 9th, 2021 7:00 PM ET (Wednesday 5:30 AM IST)Venue: Little Caesars Arena, Detroit, MIBrooklyn Nets Preview

The Brooklyn Nets have fallen victim to the Covid-19 drama that has engulfed the association this season. Steve Nash has more trouble as Kevin Durant won’t be suiting up for his side as he is expected to re-join the team on Friday, as per reports in the media.In their last outing, the severely-depleted Brooklyn Nets were hammered by Joel Embiid and Co. for their eleventh loss of the campaign. James Harden was the only player available from the Nets’ star-studded trio. He dropped a near triple-double with 26 points to go along with ten boards and eight assists on the night.Kyrie Irving suiting up for their next outing could see a change in the Brooklyn Nets’ fortunes as they aim to get back to winning ways.Key Player – James Harden

James Harden of the Brooklyn Nets warms up before a game against the Atlanta HawksThree-time scoring champ James Harden will need to put aside his new role as a facilitator and make a splash on Tuesday night. He will need to pull out all the stops as a loss against the worst-performing team in the East will not sit right with Brooklyn Nets fans and league experts.In eleven games with the Nets, Harden is averaging 23.6 points, 8.1 assists, and 10.4 assists on 46.7% shooting from the floor.Brooklyn Nets Predicted LineupG Kyrie Irving, G James Harden, F Joe Harris, F Jeff Green, C DeAndre JordanDetroit Pistons PreviewThe Detroit Pistons are coming off a fiercely-competitive matchup against the LA Lakers, resulting in a double-overtime loss. As a result, the Detroit Pistons have extended their losing streak to four games. They have a dismal 5-18 season record ahead of their matchup with the Brooklyn Nets.

The Detroit Pistons have a couple of star-caliber players in their lineup but have failed to put together a cohesive unit that can turn the tides in their favor. That said, the Pistons did cause some trouble for the defending champs in both of their matchups this season. They could potentially create havoc for the short-handed Brooklyn Nets in their fixture on Tuesday night.Key Player – Jerami Grant Jerami Grant of the Detroit Pistons drives to the basket past P.J. Tucker of the Houston RocketsJerami Grant has been on fire in his last three outings, posting an impressive total of 80 points for his efforts. He led the charge in the loss against the Lakers with a team-high 32-point performance. His recent form suggests he will be the key player for the Detroit Pistons as they take on the Nets super team in their next matchup.In twenty-three games this season, Grant is averaging 24.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.0 assists on 44.7% shooting from the floor.Detroit Pistons Predicted LineupG Delon Wright, G Wayne Ellington, F Jerami Grant, F Blake Griffin, C Mason PlumleeNets vs Pistons Match Prediction The Brooklyn Nets need to do some damage control by adding a couple of wins. With Kyrie Irving set to return for this matchup, Harden will have enough help in the backcourt to come out strong and beat the Pistons with their offensive prowess.

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons haven’t had much going for them this campaign and will aim to steal the win at home. The Detroit Pistons will rely on Jerami Grant to heat up from the floor and counter the Nets’ scoring capabilities.Where to watch Nets vs Pistons?Local coverage of the game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Detroit Pistons will telecast on Fox Sports Detroit and the Yes Network. Fans can also live-stream the game via the NBA League Pass.

Kevin Durant debacle shows NBA’s COVID policy is a disaster


Kevin Durant had a lot to say after being pulled.Image: Getty ImagesIf you didn’t watch the Nets’ 123-117 loss to the Raptors last night, you might have woken up this morning wondering what the fuck happened with Kevin Durant.Well, you’re not alone, because everyone who saw the game is wondering what the fuck happened with Kevin Durant, too.So, let’s go through it slowly and figure out what the fuck happened with Kevin Durant, beyond the basic story that Durant didn’t start the game due to health and safety protocols, then was allowed to enter the game, put up an 8-6-5 line in 19 minutes, then was told that he had to leave the game.Durant, who had to quarantine for a week in January because of a close contact, and was one of the first athletes to contract COVID-19 last March while he was still out recovering from his torn Achilles, was understandably frustrated by his latest ensnarement in the pandemic, as he put out a simple tweet as the fourth quarter went on just down the hall from where he was sequestered: “Free me”G/O Media may get a commissionIf only it were that easy. Based on the statement laid out by the NBA, it made sense for Durant to be quarantined. That statement, however, also maps out a series of failures.Kevin Durant has tested negative three times in the last 24 hours, including two negative PCR tests today. However, someone he interacted with this afternoon subsequently had an inconclusive test result return shortly before the game. Durant was initially held out of the game while that result was being reviewed.So far, so good. This is the “abundance of caution” that we hear so much about. You have a close contact with an inconclusive test, you treat it like a positive until you know otherwise. That’s just smart when you’re dealing with a virus that’s killed more Americans than the population of Oakland. That sucks for Durant, but that’s life right now.Under the league’s health and safety protocols, we do not require a player to be quarantined until a close contact has a confirmed positive test.Well, there’s your first problem. If you, regular person, had a close contact with an inconclusive test, you’d (hopefully) stay the hell home until you got word that their test was confirmed negative. And then if it was positive, you’d stay quarantined at least until you had your own negative tests, or, to actually play it safe, two weeks. But the NBA’s policy here is, nah, stick around and see how this plays out.Exactly what process of “review” allowed Durant to enter the game, well, it didn’t work out, because…During the game, a positive result was returned for the person Durant interacted with this afternoon.Whoops! So, the “review” didn’t show a negative test, just an inconclusive one? Because when it actually came back, it was positive. Just a quick question: Did this “review” indicate that Kevin Durant is a superstar and his team was playing a game on ESPN? Would Bismack Biyombo have been allowed to enter the Hornets-Jazz game under the same circumstances?Once that test was confirmed positive, out of an abundance of caution, Durant was removed from the game, and contact tracing is underway to determine if he was in fact a close contact of the positive individual.Let’s allow Durant to react to that last part.Indeed, you can’t fool em with your Wack ass PR tactics. Not so sure about the #FREE7 part, though, because “close contact” or not, Durant was around someone in the afternoon who tested positive for coronavirus. It’s imperative to make sure that he didn’t wind up getting it — yes, you can get COVID-19 twice — and that he didn’t spread it further.James Harden recognized that “he was around all of us” and that if it was about contact tracing, “The game should have been postponed.”Not only was the game not postponed, of course, the game was played, Durant entered, Durant was pulled… and the game still wasn’t postponed. Not that he’s anywhere near the person most to blame, but if Raptors coach Nick Nurse “was told right before the game that Durant was out because of health protocols,” and then the series of events unfolded as it did, why didn’t he, Nets coach Steve Nash, or both, sensibly raise a stink about continuing to play the game? Nash, for his part, saw at least some fault in how he dealt with things.But this comes back squarely to the NBA, which pulled off such a feat last summer with the Orlando bubble, and has predictably struggled mightily with coronavirus outside of that Disney lockdown.Eleven months ago, Rudy Gobert got coronavirus and the NBA and the rest of sports shut down completely. What’s become clear is why the pre-shutdown idea of just playing games behind closed doors would’ve been a disaster. Because that’s what this is.Wait, the NBA isn’t just playing behind closed doors. We had Courtside Karen just this week. But a much more enjoyable fan was in the stands in Orlando for the Bulls’ visit, a man properly wearing a mask that nicely accented his Michael Jordan jersey — a jersey for which he was thoroughly roasted by NBC Chicago announcers Adam Amin and Stacey King.This being 2021, word quickly got to the man that his favorite team’s broadcast was highlighting him this way, and he not only got a good laugh out of it, he got some love from his favorite team online.For the record, Mack McClendon insisted that his jersey was not a knockoff, just old and well-worn. And both King and Amin dapped him up online, too.Also for the record, the “Nyquil” reference is extremely real, long live the Choncago Balls. And, it’s kind of funny that this whole thing happened in Orlando, where Jordan himself once had to wear a weird-looking jersey, number 12, because his actual jersey had been stolen and hidden in the ceiling.Jordan took it personally, and scored 49 points. McClendon did not, and got to have the night of his life even though the Bulls lost, 123-119. .

The incidents eventually spiralled into their car being attacked and their tyres being slashed along with the windscreen being smashed by a hammer. “As it is was a police incident the club have held off speaking about this.
