We all have favorite teams. But some team names just don’t make any sense, like these…
No matter how well the Nets played in the first half, we crossed our fingers and bit our nails to the bone for the next 12 minutes. Not any more. Unless I just jinxed it.
Joe Johnson scored 21 points, Marcus Thornton came off the bench for 20, and the Brooklyn Nets powered their way above .500 for the first time this season by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 103-94 on Wednesday night.
The Knicks waived the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Udrih on Monday after buying out his contract. Udrih, 31, signed with New York last summer.
Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points, but the Knicks fell to the Grizzlies 95-87 at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.
Joe Johnson scored 26 points, Brook Lopez added 12 of his 20 in the fourth quarter, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Memphis Grizzlies 97-88 on Saturday night.
Since Kidd single-handedly turned around the Nets franchise upon his trade to New Jersey in 2002, they owe him. If there’s some capacity in which Kidd could fit in with the club’s long-term plans, it’s worth the discussion. Just not as head coach.
George Karl is following general manager Masai Ujiri out of Denver. But the Nets, who are without a head coach, are apparently not interested in contacting Karl.
Tony Parker had 20 points and nine assists and the Spurs struck first in the Western Conference finals by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 105-83.
Look who has the NBA’s longest winning streak now.
Carlesimo admitted that the 24-year-old is struggling with his confidence. “Without question,” Carlesimo said when asked if he thinks there is something wrong with his center’s current mindset.
Zach Randolph had 16 points and 14 rebounds, Marc Gasol scored 14 points and the Memphis Grizzlies won their seventh straight game, 76-72 over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night.
Marc Gasol was 10 of 15 from the field, all of his points coming in the first half, as Memphis, which had seven players in double figures, won for the fourth time in the past five games.
The NBA’s two highest scorers, Kobe Bryant and Carmelo Anthony lock horns in a mouth-watering match-up on Christmas Day.
