The collective reaction from the NBA to Derrick Rose’s latest injury news was simple: “Not again.”
Chris Bosh scored 26 points, Dwyane Wade scored 10 of his 25 points in the final minutes and the Miami Heat held off the Brooklyn Nets 88-84 on Sunday night to snap a four-game losing streak.
An already rough season could be about to get even more difficult for the Miami Heat.
The Brooklyn Nets made sports history earlier this year when they signed the first openly gay athlete, Jason Collins, to a ten-day contract. Now, after a second 10-day contract, Collins will be rewarded with a contract keeping him in Brooklyn for the rest of the season.
Paul Pierce drove his shoulder right into LeBron James, a postseason foul in a preseason game. A message to the NBA champions? “It’s a message to the league,” Pierce said.
LeBron James had 24 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, and the Miami Heat blew out Brooklyn in the second half for a 105-85 victory Wednesday night, their 13th in a row over the Nets.
It appears that Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard may finally be getting his ticket to the Brooklyn Nets after all.
The Orlando Magic still can’t figure out what to do with All-Star center Dwight Howard, who must think the team is either really stupid, or not committed to winning.
He’s known as Superman on the court, but center Dwight Howard may be beginning to think the Orlando Magic are his kryptonite.
The Orlando Magic has been down this road before. A superstar center wants to get out of Orlando and the team has to decide whether to trade him or squat on his rights and get nothing at the end of the season.
