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.

Raptors blow 25-point lead, but beat Bucks 92-89 - 3 hours ago
The crowd on the road was rowdy. The 25-point lead was gone. The Toronto Raptors were frazzled, in danger of losing a Game 6 in the playoffs again. This time, Toronto found a way to win. DeMar DeRozan (6'7''-F/G-89, college: USC) scored 32 points, Cory Joseph had five points in a 9-0 run in the final 2 minutes to answer a furious rally by the Milwaukee Bucks, and the Raptors held on for a 92-89 victory Thursday night to take their first-round playoff series in six games. The Raptors move...   [read more]

Spurs advance: San Antonio beats Grizzlies 103-96 in Game 6 - 4 hours ago
Kawhi Leonard (6'7''-F-91, college: San Diego St.) scored 29 points, and the San Antonio Spurs advanced to the Western Conference semifinals by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 103-96 Thursday night to take the series 4-2. The Spurs now have beaten Memphis four of the five playoff series between these teams, and this was San Antonio's second straight win over the Grizzlies in the first round. Tony Parker (6'2''-PG-82) added 27 points on 11-of-14 shooting, while LaMarcus Aldridge (6'11''-F/C-...   [read more]

Clippers Remain Committed To Re-Signing Blake Griffin - 4 hours ago
Blake Griffin(6'10''-F-89, college: Oklahoma) will be a free agent for the first time this offseason and the Los Angeles Clippers want to re-sign him. The Clippers will also contend with the free agencies of Chris Paul and J.J. Redick. Griffin is out for the playoffs with a toe injury. "Griffin is still a significant part of the Clippers' future. Management remains committed to signing him to a long-term deal this summer, league sources tell me," said Adrian Wojnarowski in a video essay....   [read more]
