Jeremy Lamb throws down couple sweet dunks against Trail Blazers (video)


Jeremy Lamb looks like he’s worth the money.

The Hornets guard finished hard after a quality cut against the Trail Blazers:

Then, a couple minutes later, Lamb went up to get a pass from Jeremy Lin:


Kobe Bryant out against Suns: ‘I’m barely standing up’

Kobe Bryant, Ersan Ilyasova

Kobe Bryant played 36 minutes – his most in 11 months – including all but the final seven seconds of the fourth quarter in the Lakers’ win over the Pistons last night.

But it’ll cost the 37-year-old.

Baxter Holmes of ESPN:

Lakers star Kobe Bryant will not play Monday against the Phoenix Suns

“Right now, I’m barely standing up. My back and my legs, man, it’s killing me,” he said Sunday

“I’m not looking forward to walking to the car right now,” Bryant said. “Seriously.”

This was always going to be a tough stretch for Kobe. Tonight’s game in Phoenix will be the Lakers’ fifth in seven days in five cities. Kobe will have played in just two of the five.

But the Lakers’ schedule softens from here. They’ll have three days off before hosting the Raptors on Friday and Trail Blazers on Sunday. After the relatively short trip to Golden State on Tuesday, the Lakers have three more off days.

It could be a chance for Kobe to get his legs under him, but his age, there’s no guarantee he’ll be ready for even this stretch.

Andre Miller with a sweet pass to set up Karl-Anthony Towns inside? Sure, that happens.

Towns going no-look, over-the-shoulder to Miller? That’s a little more head-turning.

This rookie is way ahead of schedule.

GM Bob Myers: Warriors winning 72 games is impossible

Bob Myers

Klay Thompson said the Warriors might win 72 games and match the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls for the best-ever record. Stephen Curry didn’t want to talk about it.

But Golden State general manager Bob Myers took a hard stance.

Diamond Leung of Bay Area News Group:

Another Warriors hater. Get em, Draymond Green.

For the record, I think the Warriors can win 72 games. I don’t think they will, but they’re 10-0 and look fantastic. It’s possible.
