In what started off as a great tribute to long-time star Chris Paul (6'0''-PG-85, college: Wake Forest), the New Orleans Hornets soured the evening with a display of poor sportsmanship by Jason Smith (7'0''-F-86, agency: Priority Sports, college: Colorado St.). Smith has become a regular contributor for the woeful Hornets, and had a nice night yesterday with 17 points and 8 rebounds, but displayed antics that have no place on the professional level.

In a close game throughout, Clippers star Blake Griffin (6'10''-F-89, college: Oklahoma) had a fast break look for a dunk, when Jason Smith comes hustling down the court to 'defend', throwing his left shoulder into a defenseless Griffin, which immediately threw Griffin to the ground. The hit looked like one that would've won the bounty for the New Orleans Hornets, so its safe to say it had no business in last night's NBA game. Smith was immediately ejected from the game.

Flagrant fouls are a part of the game, and Smith's foul was no different. But what made this incident even worse was Smith's reaction to being ejected from the game. As he was being escorted out by security, Smith was waving his arms, to gain praise from his home crowd, as if he had accomplished something honorable. Instead, all he did was to bring the wrong type of attention to a game that should've been about honoring Chris Paul, and applauding the Hornets for pulling out a tough victory. Instead, it'll be about Smith and his selfish acts.

Warriors exert third-quarter push in Game 3 win over Rockets - 10 hours ago
The force seems as powerful as Draymond Green (6'7''-F-90, college: Michigan St.)'s defense, as entertaining as Stephen Curry (6'3''-PG-88, college: Davidson)'s shooting and as inspiring as the Warriors' team-oriented play. As the Warriors strive to defend their NBA championship, teams do not just have to account for their star-studded talent or swift ball movement. They have to worry about the Warriors' most lethal in-game adjustment - a third-quarter push that seems inevitable even if o...   [read more]

LeBron, Cavs overpower Celtics 116-86 at home in Game 3 - 1 day ago
LeBron James (6'8''-SF-84) had 27 points and 12 assists, Kevin Love (6'10''-PF-88, college: UCLA) added 14 rebounds, and the Cleveland Cavaliers looked like a different team on their home floor, tightening the Eastern Conference finals with a 116-86 victory in Game 3 over the Boston Celtics on Saturday night. Outplayed during two losses in Boston, the Cavs used a three-day break in the series to regroup and re-grip this series. They built a 19-point lead in the first quarter, pushed it to...   [read more]
