Spurs edge Grizzlies and move into 9th place in West

DeMar DeRozan made two free throws with a second to play, giving the San Antonio Spurs a 108-106 triumph over the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday that moved them into ninth place in the Western Conference. The Spurs built an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter but needed a bunch of big plays down the stretch from DeRozan after the Grizzlies rallied. ”He’s a superstar in this league, one of the top players in this league,” the Grizzlies’ Ja Morant said. ”I feel like that’s a good job. I’m not surprised at all that he goes out and delivered for his team late in the game at all.” […]

Lakers eye JR Smith as top candidate to replace Avery Bradley

If the Los Angeles Lakers are going to win a championship when the 2019-20 NBA campaign resumes, they’re going to have to do it without the services of Avery Bradley. One of the leading voices in opposition of restarting the season amid the health and social unrest pervading the country right now, Bradley, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, made it official on Tuesday night that he will not be participating in the Orlando bubble. This is a blow for the Lakers, though likely not a catastrophic one. Bradley was a starter, yes, and he’s still a tough defender and reliable 3-point shooter on a team in short […]
