Who says only superstars get the benefit of the doubt?

Nets ultimately pulled away again for the comfortable win. Rare to see Kevin Durant ejected.

That double dribble is epic.

I doubt that Vucevic was coming off a knee surgery in that game. Oh, and did Vucevic tie the game with three seconds left?

Oh and why capslock Vucevic? He's one of the most talented european big men right now. I'd take Vucevic over a lot of scrub big men in this league. (at least three of them playing for the Heat)

I see a superstar pulling off a sweet dribble move and destroying J.J. Dickson in that gif.

I don't think it was a flop, his arm was caught and he ended up taking a hard fall, but I wouldn't call it a flagrant either. Looks worse than it is as far as what Ezeli did.

Not a flop. He may have even got a slight concussion from hitting his head on the floor, or just a painful bump.

LOL at the gif. Who jumps to their left when shooting?

Who's that guy on the Warriors bench? Blake is gonna dunk on him next time they meet if that player gets some minutes.

So Blake Griffin attempts a spinning hook kick to David Lee's head but ends up hurting himself only.

Looks like Steve Francis to me. But from the one's on the Warriors homepage its most likely Kent Bazemore.

So from that point the biggest problem for Blake will be that Bazemore is never on the court. Would be awesome if he dunked on him (don't get me wrong, I dont like Blake very much, but revenge is always a great theme)

So Rudy Gay might be on the block. Pretty surprising seeing ass how well the Grizz are doing.

Not that surprising considering they're paying him the max to be a slightly above average small forward.

Im wondering if Rudy Gay for Batum swap could work for both teams? Portland desperately needs a secondary ball handler who can create offense for himself while Memphis probably needs better outside shooting and Batum has a more all-round game. I like Batum but just wonder.

Batum can't be traded until the summer because the Blazers matched an offer sheet he signed.

One of the marquee match ups of the year, Clippers vs Lakers seems like it was nothing short of spectacular.

Definitely a fun one to watch. As usual, Griffin was doing his best to pull down the rim.

Right now the Clips are smashing Golden State early on, 30-12. I don't like these fast starts, though. They get complacent.

That seemed to be the case against the Lakers yesterday, though they ended up winning comfortably this time around.
