    Jonathan Auping: Sweatin’ Bullets - The Not-So-Glorious Return

    Last season we ran a feature called Sweatin’ Bullets in which I provided observations,
    theories, and general points about the latest game. We got a lot of good feedback like,
    “You’re not as funny as you think you are” and “What are you, drunk?” So for tonight’s
    matchup with the Mavericks, we’re bringing it back. Enjoy.

    • If side-by-side televisions were in your living room and one of them was
      airing this game while the other was airing Danny Granger and Dirk Nowitzki
      playing one-on-one, which one do you think you’d stare at more?

    • Lance Stephenson was just a little 10-year-old when Vince Carter won the
      Slam Dunk Contest. Stephenson was probably more of a Gerald Green-era
      Dunk Contest type of guy.

    • There seem to be some big guys in the NBA that are “fake tough” in the
      words of Kevin Durant. I wouldn’t include Elton Brand or David West on that

    • One year of Chris Kaman for $8 million or four years of Roy Hibbert for
      $58 million? I’m not commenting either way, I’m just asking. Friday’s stats?
      Kaman: 8 points, 10 rebounds. Hibbert: 14 points, 8 rebounds.

    • I had the pleasure of talking to Dahntay Jones last Wednesday before the
      Mavericks played the Washington Wizards. I took the liberty of speaking for
      all of you when I told him how much he was loved in Indiana. His response:
      ”I think they appreciated that I gave my heart and soul and played hard
      every night.I tried to do the right thing, on and off the court. The people
      were really supportive and we did some special things together.”

    • If Bernard James keeps playing well as a reserve big man then the
      Mavericks might be able to flip him to the Pacers for a starting-caliber
      point guard and a defensive specialist in a year or two. He’ll need to start
      committing more fouls though...CONTINUE READING AT 8p9s

    Ball Don’t Lie:
    Dan Devine: So, how seriously should we take the New York Knicks’ 5-0 start?

    The New York Knicks are 5-0. They are the only team in the NBA that hasn't lost yet.
    They are either at or near the top of most observers' early season power rankings,
    they've got the league's best defense and second-best offense in terms of points
    allowed per 100 possessions, according to's stat tool, and they are the first
    team in 25 years to open the season with five straight wins by 10 or more points.

    And yet, despite the fact that the Knicks' improvement on both offense and defense
    tracks with the team's performance in coach Mike Woodson's 24-game stint at the
    helm last season, during which New York fielded top-five-caliber units on both ends
    of the floor, it all feels like a trick of the light, a soon-to-be-dispelled mirage. Can
    the New York Knicks — a team that's led by career losers Carmelo Anthony and J.R.
    Smith, that's got four of the five oldest players in the NBA, that's been a laughingstock
    for the better part of the last 13 years — be the best team in the NBA? It's a difficult
    concept to accept ... especially if you watched them play Tuesday night.

    If you just looked at the box score Wednesday morning, you'd think the Knicks' 99-89
    road win over the Orlando Magic went down pretty similarly to their first four. New
    York shot well, making a touch under 49 percent of their field goals and 38 percent
    of their 3-point tries, with Anthony leading the way (25 points on 50 percent shooting
    and eight rebounds) and Smith continuing to play like a top Sixth Man candidate (21
    points on 9-for-14 shooting, four rebounds, three assists, two steals, just one
    turnover). They continued to take care of the ball, turning it over just nine times,
    while harassing Orlando into 20 cough-ups that led to 24 Knick points. They scored
    like a top-three offense and checked like a top-eight defense, efficiency-wise. A nice
    night's work, and on to the next one...CONTINUE READING AT BALL DON'T LIE
