Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Dan Devine) — The Denver Nuggets improved to 2-0 in the Melvin Hunt era on Wednesday night, scoring a 100-85 road win over the Minnesota Timberwolves thanks in large part to a 34-16 second quarter and a balanced attack featuring nine players chipping in at least six points, led by an 18-point, 14-rebound outing from forward Kenneth Faried. That the Nuggets, dismal as they've been in a campaign that led to...

James Harden deserves the same foul calls everyone else gets

The Dream Shake (Ethan Rothstein) — Just because he draws fouls for a living doesn't mean it should be held against him. Let's get this out of the way: for two straight games, the Rockets barely lost to NBA championship contenders because forces outside the Rockets' control intervened. Both time, James Harden was hung out to dry. He didn't deserve a suspension for lightly kicking LeBron James , and he didn't deserve the...

Marc Gasol hits game-winner to send Grizzlies past Rockets in controversial finish

Yahoo.com: Ball Don't Lie (Dan Devine) — The Memphis Grizzlies needed a win. They'd lost three of their last four games, they were coming off a dispiriting home defeat to the Utah Jazz, and they were dealing with some intra-squad static surrounding a reported practice altercation between guards Tony Allen and Nick Calathes that led to a one-game suspension for "The Grindfather."

Rockets get gutpunched by Gasol, lose 102-100

The Dream Shake (Matt Rothstein) — It was close the whole way, but Memphis was too big for the Rockets. That didn't feel good at all. James Harden drove the lane late with the game tied at 100, an obvious foul wasn't called, and then Marc Gasol hit a fadeaway jumper with a tenth of a second left to down the Rockets , who shot five free throws all game. That's all I'll say about the refs this time. (OK, once more. Five...
