Basically every person that has clapped for Knicks basketball this season is pictured here.
DeMar DeRozan was so interested in this Wesley Johnson dunk that he got up and took a closer look in Toronto’s 106-94 win over the Lakers.
…And now, a possession in the life of Terrence Jones from the Rockets’ 98-88 win over the Magic.
(Mostly posted because of Victor Oladipo in the second .gif)
Roy Hibbert hits Paul George for the alley-oop reverse in Indiana’s 118-94 loss in the City (aka Oklahoma City).
Darth Mamba strikes back with a couple of field goals in the Lakers’ 106-94 loss to the Raptors. He was definitely “forcing” it, but that’s to be expected. The man has no fear… because “fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering."
James Harden for the easy three and the hard five in Houston’s 98-88 win over the Orlando Magic.
Amir Johnson with the slam in Toronto’s 106-94 win in La La Land.
Single Sample Size All-Stars: Sunday, December 8th
Dwyane Wade passes it off the glass to LeBron James for the finish in Miami’s 103-82 win over the Timberwolves.
Damian Lillard hit a very tough three to tie the game at 106 with 1.9 seconds left, but just like in a loss to the Hornets last year, crappy defense often supercedes long distance heroics and Monta Ellis hit an open jumper at the buzzer to give Dallas the win. I am disappoint.
Once again, it’s time for Art of the Shot Chart, the place where things typically don’t make sense and sometimes they are just weird and ugly too! Tonight we’ll pair artistic ramblings with written ones to better understand the 130-98 whoopin’ the Portland Trail Blazers delivered the Utah Jazz with Damian ‘Crazy Legs’ Lillard and his 7-of-9 shooting performance as our guide. So come on in; the dance floor’s open.
If you’re familiar with pseudo-artistic shot chart analysis, you GET this picture. If not, READ MORE to get educated.
Here’s another early Damian Lillard three, part of his 5-of-6 shooting from distance and the Blazers’ franchise-record 17 total (out of just 23 attempts!) last night. We’ve been waiting for a breakout shooting performance from him for a while and he was huge in Portland’s 32-point win. He always seems to make timely shots and he delivered again as they needed him early this time so they could rest the starters in preparation for a game against Dallas on Saturday night.
You knew it was going to be a long night for Trey Burke and the Utah Jazz when Damian Lillard busted out this stepback to start the game… Except you’d be wrong because Burke’s night was cut short by the ass-kicking Portland delivered and the benches got plenty of run as the Blazers won 130-98.

Victor Oladipo jock blocks Carmelo Anthony at the rim in Orlando’s disturbing 38-point loss in the Garden.
