The NBA Dribbled Out

Special 30 link edition for every team, none of whom employ someone that shot the worst free throw attempt of all time
-The Oklahoma City Thunder are on a historic run. 
-Wiz rookie, Bradley Beal, was assertive against Atlanta on Friday night, for one quarter at least. 
-The Raptors are not doing so well, and now Doug Smith has used “pimptastic” in the opening line of his most recent piece at the Toronto Star: “No, that was not a pimptastic night, by any stretch of the imagination?”
-Bill Plaschke with a veiled allusion to Dickens in the tale of two teams in LA (they’re both the Lakers, so sorry Clippers fans).
-San Francisco Gate reporter, Rusty Simmons, writes that the Warriors played poorly in their win over the Wizards last night. Marcus Thompson also lacked enthusiasm for their win at the Oakland Tribune. Thompson’s writeup is strange considering he told us they’re off to their best start in two decades, but I guess that’s what happens when you start to win: you get nitpicked more. 
-Utah Jazz point guard, Mo Williams, is providing a spark. 
-The Sacramento Kings aren’t going to Virginia, but they have won three in a row. 
-The Orlando Magic need to perform better in first quarters. They play Phoenix tonight.
- Both Wesley Matthews and Nicolas Batum suffered injuries during the Blazers’ loss to the Kings. 
-Good news Hornets fans, yes you lost last night to Miami, but Anthony Davis is expected to return sometime this week. He’s been out since mid-November with an ankle injury that was failing to heal. 
-New Jersey Star-Ledger columnist, Dave D’Allesandro, on the important dirty work done by Reggie Evans. Also, the New York Times’ , Howard Beck, wrote a little something about Reggie Evans, and his attempts to stay on his feet. Two national columnists write two stories about Reggie Evans within two days of each other: wow. 
-Minnesota Star-Tribune beat reporter, Jerry Zgoda, on the passing of his good friend, Rick Majerus. 
-Third-year forward, and all-around beast this season, Larry Sanders, and back-up point guard, Beno Udrich, are getting a chance to start for the Bucks. 
-A worn out Grizzlies team lost to the Hawks last night, and Geoff Caulkins explains why.
-The Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen explains why McHale felt it was time to return against Dallas on Saturday night. 
-Until Dirk returns, the Mavericks have to rely on the scoring of OJ Mayo. He had 40 last night to outduel James Harden and Houston. 
-The Pistons’ Brandon Knight and Joe Drummond are still learning, but don’t forget Greg Monroe is still only 22. 
-Mary Schmitt Boyer doesn’t think trading Anderson Varejao to Golden State (for Barnes and Bogut) is a very good idea [ASK MARY Mailbag]. 
-After maching their win total from a year before, the Bobcats have lost 6 straight. Rick Bonnell goes inside the Spurs shellacking of the Bobcats (they hit a franchise record 19 three-pointers in the game). It was also the first game back for Joey Crawford since that photo from Stephen Jackson’s Halloween party went viral.
-Devin Harris isn’t settling for his jump shot anymore.  Oh yeah, the Hawks have won 9 of their last 10, and they’re third in the East right now.
-The Nuggets need Ty Lawson to play at a higher level. JaVale McGee executed the perfect JaVale McGee play last night (via The Point Forward)

-Thanks, John D. Mitchell, for telling us that if Bynum returns, the Sixers will be transformed. After Evan Turner’s heroics in overtime,

the Celtics won the back end of their home-and-home last night. 
- The Pacers have had a hard time finishing games this season.
-As already mentioned, the Spurs set a franchise record with 19 3’s last night against the dovetailing Bobcats, and it was the first game Crawford ushered since the photo.
-I guess Doug Collins told his young players before their game about all the minutes Pierce and Garnett had played over the years, and Doc relayed that speech to his guys, where they ended up getting the most out of their time. Said Garnett after being asked about Collins’ speech “hmm hmm…Well, one thing they don’t keep track of is heart and ‘kahunas.’” Also, rookie, Jared Sullinger, is coming up big for the Celtics. 
-Kevin Ding thinks a long road trip east, could help the Lakers bond. 
-Oh Jeff Miller, you’re really punny. Miller writes, for the Orange County Register, that as [Lamar] Odom loses weight, he’s making a heavier impact. Emphasis mine. 
-On Friday night against Detroit, Joakim Noah had 30 points and 23 rebounds, both career highs. The Bulls followed that up by bringing the Knicks back down to earth with a 93-85 win last night; despite the fact it was their fourth game in five nights. 
-Chris Bosh 3 blown dunks in 15 seconds, but a combined 50 points from LeBron and Wade was enough to get the win. 
-‘Melo is hopeful tonight against Denver; Mike Lupica fellates Mike Woodson (but Woodson sorta deserves it for the way he’s got the Knicks playing); Raymond Felton is ready to face his old Nuggets team tonight (although, lets hope he doesn’t shoot it 30 times like he did against Chicago).
