Mighty Moke’s Free Agency Rankings (Version 3.0)

JJ Hickson

I know that the Miami Heat don’t really have a free agent of consequence this coming offseason. But if they did, he would probably need to have a spot in our weekly Top 15 “just because.” After erasing a 17-point first half deficit and a 13-point deficit in the fourth quarter, the Heat overcame Jeff Green’s career-high 43 points and extended their winning streak to 23 games.

Kamenetzky: The Cali Report – Dwight’s return, Clips vs. Griz, Lee’s D, Boogie’s issues

Dwight Howard

Don’t look now, but the Lakers suddenly have what appears to be legitimate momentum on their side. That’s not to say they’ve morphed into the juggernaut many predicted back in October. Such talk would certainly be premature. But it’s safe to assume their surge has grabbed the attention of the entire league, much less the Pacific Division. The Golden State Warriors are now just two games ahead of the Lakers, a gap that doesn’t feel impossible to close. Were that the case,
