Tweet of the Night: Metta World Peace unconcerned with loss against the Milwaukee Bucks

metta

Prior to the New York Knicks’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday, Tyson Chandler was ambitious about where his team could end up by the end of the regular season. Despite holding a 19-28 record, the center believed the Knicks still had a chance to end up with the third seed of the Eastern Conference, which is currently held by the Atlanta Hawks (25-21). Here is Chandler’s quote from Ian Begley of ESPN NY: Obviously, we didn’t come in expecting to

SH Blog: Don’t Sleep on the Raptors; Andre Miller Takes First Career DNP-CD; Latest on Bynum

DeMar DeRozan

Last week, we ran a post from @Betropolitan listing the incredible odds on winning the Eastern Conference for teams other than the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers. It seemed strange at the time that the Toronto Raptors and Chicago Bulls were the third choice, at 25-1, but it was a reminder that Vegas is all-knowing. And those oddsmakers look even smarter this morning after the Raptors put together their signature win of the season, defeating the mighty Indiana Pacers 95-92 last

AS14_NewOrleans_Logosheet

Amid its myriad injuries, its dozen teams below .500 and its 44-98 record against the Western Conference, there is a looming question regarding the Eastern Conference: Can the East even field an All-Star team? A year ago, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, Tyson Chandler, Kyrie Irving, Brook Lopez and Jrue Holiday were among the East’s All-Stars. You can make the argument – irrefutable in some cases, strong in others – that none of those players should be invited back

Is this how things are going to be for the Brooklyn Nets without their starting center? In the first game since losing Brook Lopez to a season-ending foot injury, the Nets got ripped by the Indiana Pacers and suffered an embarrassing 103-86 loss at home. To be fair, they did lose to the best team in the league (at least from a record perspective). The Pacers are ranked No. 1 in defensive rating and allow a league best 89.4 points. That’s

We’ve got a monster matchup tonight with the Thunder taking on the Spurs. Gregg Popovich rested his stars a couple days ago, presumably with this matchup in mind, so we’ll see if that ploy pays off. Of course, despite missing some veterans, the Spurs overcame the Warriors in a close one Thursday night. It’s been a bit of a disappointing season for the Warriors, though they’re certainly not out of the hunt by any means. It’s just another reminder that the NBA
