Reggie Jackson Dunks On Kenneth Faried!!


The Oklahoma City back up point guard turned starter has been playing great basketball in the absence of Russell Westbrook. Definitely Reggie Jackson’s biggest play as the season as he comes through the lane and dunks on Denver Nuggets big man, Kenneth Faried!

Los Angeles Clippers Star Chris Paul Will Be Out 3-5 Weeks!!


Bad news for Los Angeles Clippers fans as their star point guard will be out 3-5 weeks with a separated shoulder. It’s bad enough it’s 3-5 weeks but there’s rumors the shoulder could require surgery which would put the star guard out even longer. You always hate to see a great player like  Chris Paul go out but this year the injuries aren’t playing favorites as Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Deron Williams, Al Horford and Derrick Rose have all been out this year. Wishing all players a speedy recovery!

Russell Westbrook Reaches, Jrue Holiday Teaches!


It’s great having young guards in the league because they take every match up as a challenge. Last night New Orleans guard, Jrue Holiday was matched up against Oklahoma City Thunder guard, Jrue Holiday. The two former UCLA Bruins had quite the battle as Westbrook had 25 points, 1 rebound and 4 assists, while Holiday finished with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists in a 109-95 Thunder victory. Watch as Jrue Holiday burns Westbrook on the fastbreak with a sick behind the back!

Russel Westbrook For The Win!!!


The Thunder guard comes up clutch late in the game to hit the game winner with 0.1 second left on the clock! This is payback for what happened last time these two teams met! Hopefully we see more from these two in the future.

Russel Westbrook, BREAK ANKLES!! J.J. Hickson On Skates


Russel Westbrook is one of the quickest guards in the league but it’s his explosiveness that can get him to the rim at any second. This was on display last night as he drove towards Nuggets forward, J.J. Hickson and hit him with a low double crossover making Hickson grab the floor to brace his fall. Westbrook then exploded for the lay up to give the Thunder a 110-106 lead with 22 seconds left. Westbrook finished the game with 30 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists.
