Stick To One Sport

Because sometimes I'm going to want to write about cricket.

The NBA released its last-two-minute report yesterday and confirmed that, yes, Kevin Durant stole Christmas by fouling LeBron in a crucial final possession of the Warriors' 99-92 win over the Cavs.

People on the internet were, predictably, very indignant about this, Jef...

De'Aaron Fox did not really have a great game last night. He was only 4-of-13 from the field, and 3-of-7 from the free throw line.

He did finish with 11 points, seven assists and only one turnover, so it wasn't completely irredeemable. But at one point late in the third...

This makes so much sense. And the more you dig into it, the more sense it only makes.

The Milwaukee Bucks acquired Eric Bledsoe from the Suns on Monday and mercifully released him from his disgruntled captivity in Phoenix. Weather aside, he should feel very happy about...

The question is omnipresent at this point: How did this guy go 27th?

Kyle Kuzma had another impact game on Thursday night for the Lakers, scoring 22 on 10-of-17 shooting as Los Angeles narrowly lost to Portland 113-110.

It's not any kind of revelation at this point to no...

Last night, the Lakers and Pistons played almost the entirety of the first half without taking a single free throw between them. Detroit didn't get their first until midway through the fourth quarter.

It was kind of surreal. It was also kind of great.


I've had plenty of...

Toward the end of the third quarter on Friday night, Evan Fournier hit a falling and-1 three, then finished the four-point play to extend Orlando's lead over San Antonio. To 36.

The Magic went on to win 114-87, improving to 4-1, their best start in five years and the Ea...

In the opening minutes of the Pistons' first game, I joked that maybe I'd overlooked Tobias Harris as a Most Improved Player candidate. The kinda perpetually-underwhelming forward hit six of seven shots in the first nine minutes of the game, scoring 17 of Detroit's 25...

Here's a perhaps obvious but too infrequently-spoken truth about big-man three-point threats: They only need to be a threat.

It's great if you're DeMarcus Cousins and you've developed a genuinely good three-point shot that allows you to actually contribute to the team a...

The good news for Kings fans is, first, that Houston didn't play down to Sacramento in Thursday night's opening 105-100 loss.

The Kings took it to the Rockets, and were rightfully in it til the end. Yeah, Houston was off from three, but Sacramento played really solid wi...

The Celtics and Cavs will launch NBA 2017-18 tonight, so might as well try to get some of these in while I still can. 

These are highly unscientific, and it's important to remember predicting things like awards and All-NBA teams is in some ways distinct from predicting...
