Warriors guard Steph Curry nailed a shot from the tunnel during warm ups before the Warriors game against the Rockets on Friday night.
With the Miami Heat trailing 96-95 to the lowly Orlando Magic, LeBron James hit a driving layup with 3.2 seconds left in the game to give the Heat a 97-96 win. LeBron's game winner extended the Heat's winning streak to 16 games. King James who finished with 26 points also threw down another nasty alley-oop from Dwayne Wade.
New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson admitted Tuesday that Carmelo Anthony had asked out of Monday nights game against the Cleveland Cavaliers before he aggravated his right knee injury. Woodson said he was too “stubborn” to listen.
Here is what Woodson told ESPN radio in New York:
"Melo was hurt," Woodson said. "For him to ask me to come out of the game before he actually took that spill made me realize that something wasn't right. He's never ever, ever, even hinted about coming out of the game [before Monday]. I play him too much in that regard. Melo's a trooper -- he's a warrior, he's a tough kid."
Woodson was asked during the interview why he chose to leave Anthony in the game after he requested to come out.
Woodson explained that he hoped Anthony would help dig the Knicks out of their 22-point first-half deficit.
"Maybe I should have taken him out before he actually stumbled and took the fall," Woodson said. "But again, I'm thinking [during] the game, 'Hey, he'll play through it. He'll figure it out.'
"But he was hurt. He walked out after he took the spill and he didn't come back, and that's not Melo-like. Obviously, his knee is bothering him."
"I should have [taken him out]," Woodson said. "Stubborn coach -- I just didn't."
Kobe Bryant banked in a three point shot playground style Tuesday night during the Lakers - Thunder game. The Thunder blew the Lakers out 122-105. Bryant went to the locker room with a right elbow injury in the first quarter but returned to finish with 30 points.
With Notre Dame blowing out St. Johns by 26 with 1:46 left in the game, a fight broke out between the Red Storms Sir’ Dom Pointer and the Fighting Irish's Cameron Biedscheid. A few punches thrown, and just a continuing downward spiral for the Red Storms season. Maybe we'll see a rematch in the Big East Tournament.
