The Los Angeles Lakers played the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, and that meant another ugly-shooting performance was on deck for Kobe Bryant. The shooting guard has been historically bad for someone who has taken at least 16 shots from the field heading into the game, averaging an unfathomable 33.1 percent shooting from the field in his first 10 games.

With their record standing at 15-0, the Golden State Warriors are on the verge of setting a new record for the best start in NBA history when they face the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday. So can they pull it off? The odds are overwhelmingly in their favor to do so, but the Lakers do have this on their side: they managed to beat Golden State, which went into the game with a 23-3 record – last season at the Staples Center despite

If there is one team that has proven to be a serious challenge out in the West for the Golden State Warriors thus far, it has been the Los Angeles Clippers. After giving them a run for their money in the first game back on Nov. 4 (final score of 112-108), the Clippers went up by as much as 23 points against the Warriors in the early going in their second meeting on Thursday. For the second straight time, Chris Paul

Rudy Gobert full

Thanks to the emerging and imposing presence of Rudy Gobert, the Utah Jazz have been one of the better defensive teams in the league this season. The transformation of the Jazz’s defense (5th in defensive rating) began last season when Enes Kanter was traded, allowing the second-year center Gobert to take over the starting spot. From there, the center showed that he was mature well beyond his years in his ability to contest at the rim with the longest wingspan in


Tweet of the Night: Myles Turner happy to see career game for Kristaps Porzingis after watching him get booed on draft night

Kristaps Porzingis

Kristaps Porzingis had his heart broken the last time he faced the Charlotte Hornets when he hit a game-winning 3-pointer that came a fraction of a second too late. On Tuesday night in a rematch against the Hornets- at the Madison Square Garden this time – the prized rookie made sure there would be no last-second finishes this time around. Porzingis was phenomenal, scoring 29 points on 10-of-17 from the field, including two-of-two from the arc, to go with 11 rebounds


Tweet of the Night: Dwyane Wade proud to see the success of Mario Chalmers in a Grizzlies uniform

Dwyane Wade

No matter what role he was given, Mario Chalmers never had doubt in his ability to be one of the better point guards in the league with the Miami Heat. Unfortunately, he never was handed the keys to display what he could do while playing with ball-dominant stars like Dwyane Wade and LeBron James. In fact, his role was largely limited to being a spot-up 3-point shooter and being a defender. With the Memphis Grizzlies, it appears Chalmers will have more of an opportunity to
