Tweet of the Night: Vanessa Macias explains why Tim Duncan hit a 3-pointer against the Thunder

Tim Duncan

The playoffs are approaching, and that means the San Antonio Spurs may be ready to put themselves into another gear heading down the stretch of the year. The question throughout the season had been whether they actually had another gear to turn on after taking home the championship trophy last season. It looked shaky at times and injuries to key players certainly didn’t help, but the Spurs have won 11 of their last 14 games and made an example out of the

It’s been a long time coming for the Golden State Warriors and their fanbase, but the team finally did something it hadn’t done in almost four decades: take home the division crown.

Monday’s contest between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz featured two teams who have been in the bottom of the pack in the West for quite a number of years. The Jazz have been trying to find a way to re-identify themselves since trading away Deron Williams in 2011. The Timberwolves have essentially failed to recover since trading away Kevin Garnett in 2007, although their downfall began even with Garnett on the team.It was a bit of a surprise, then, to

Tweet of the Day: Sixers Win, Joel Embiid Dances

In a meaningless game between two of the NBA bottom-feeders, the New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers, a player who hasn’t played all season gets the social media glory for … dancing? Nerlens Noel, who led the Sixers in scoring, rebounds, steals and blocks with 23 points, 14 boards, five steals and three blocks, should be the 17-52 team’s unsung hero. However, it seems to be 2014 draftee Joel Embiid who is grooving to whatever tune Noel could possibly be singing.

Shawn Marion’s career as an NBA player is starting to wind down as he begins to approach his twilight years. The once dominant and one of the truly unique forwards in the history of the game is quickly approaching 37 years of age. For the first time in his career, Marion is playing less than 20 minutes per game for the Cleveland Cavaliers (after averaging almost 32 minutes with the Dallas Mavericks last year) while averaging 4.9 points and 3.5 rebounds.

Tweet of the Night: Vanessa Macias not thrilled about lack of foul calls in the NBA

Despite approaching 39 years of age, Tim Duncan has been one of the most durable players on the San Antonio Spurs roster this season. The ageless power forward has only missed a total of six games, is second in both minutes per game and starts made for his team, and still leads everyone on his team with a 21.7 PER. The relatively injury-free season came to a bit of a halt on Tuesday, though, when Tiago Splitter bounced off an Amir Johnson
