Kyle Lowry Is The Most Frustrated Man

Over the first two games of the Raptors-Wizards series, both played in Toronto, Kyle Lowry has played 60 minutes, scored 13 total points, hit five of 20 shots, and committed ten personal fouls.

Russell Westbrook Catches A Too-Little Break, Far Too Late

With just under six minutes remaining in Oklahoma City’s 116-104 loss to the Pacers last night, Russell Westbrook collided with Indiana’s Luis Scola as the latter set a screen for the former’s man, George Hill. Referee Ed Malloy called a personal foul on Westbrook, his third; Westbrook complained, and Malloy added a… » 4/13/15 4:15pm 4/13/15 4:15pm

K.J. McDaniels Gets Two Chasedown Blocks In 10 Seconds


Houston Rockets rookie shooting guard K.J. McDaniels has quickly established himself as one of the best shot-blocking guards in the league. He’s averaging 1.1 blocks per game while playing just 22 minutes a night, and his 70 blocks put him ahead of big men like Taj Gibson, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Kenneth Faried.
