DeAndre Jordan has gone from an overhyped defender to a legitimately impactful defender.
All the while, he maintained a reputation as a player not to be tested at the rim.
Bismack Biyombo looked right past that – and down on Jordan as he dunked on the Clippers center.
He didn’t get Biyombo, but Jordan later took revenge on that rim, helping the Clippers to a 113-108 win over the Magic:
Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?
Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.
The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.
That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.
Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.
With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.
Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.
After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
