  2. A Gift from Minnesota: How Brandon Roy Got to Portland

    Henry Abbott

    The way Jonathan Givony tells it, the Blazers really pulled a fast one on Kevin McHale on draft night. The highlight of the night for me personally was seeing Portland single handedly destroy a trade the Timberwolves and Rockets had in place (#6 Bran...

    Henry Abbott

    Phil Sheridan of The Philadelphia Inquirer: "The 76ers staged a very moving tribute to Allen Iverson last night. It was a perfect way to induct a retired superstar into the team's Hall of Fame: sold-out arena, stirring highlight video, the works. Exc...

  5. Superstar calls -- from coaches

    Henry Abbott

    By Henry Abbott These are the highlights of last night's Wizards vs. Heat game. Missing are the three lowlights. They were all Gilbert Arenas plays, and they were all in crunch time. Dwyane Wade and Gilbert Arenas had been going back-and-for...

  7. Mike D'Antoni Dodged a Bullet

    Henry Abbott

    I went to the Knicks vs. the Suns last night, and it was such a strange game. (Highlights.) It was certainly high-scoring, but hardly must-watch. It was a story of mistakes -- the most memorable element of the game was of Shaquille O'Neal turning...

  9. What can Phoenix Take Away from Beating San Antonio?

    Henry Abbott

    Did you see that game? (Here are the highlights.) The Suns won, which must feel great. But a lot of what happened last night probably won't happen if these two teams see each other in the playoffs. For instance: San Antonio was without Tony Par...

    Henry Abbott

    ... was being selected by Michael Jordan (and getting to play in North Carolina): "You know, a guy like him picks you," he says, "obviously he sees something in you. I just think he has a lot of confidence in my game and what I can do." Or, as is now...

  12. Good Basketball

    Henry Abbott

    TrueHoop reader Trieu points out a favorite moment of last night's game. (It's the last highlight here.) What Robert Horry, Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan do has a lot to do with what they call "basketball IQ:" It's 80-72 Spurs late in the game. Gin...

  13. The Blazers Really Know How to Lose

    Henry Abbott

    That's a joke, really. What I mean is, they have lost three in a row, but each has managed to be pretty inspiring for a young club anyway. Watch the highlights of last night's overtime loss to Nash-less Phoenix. Big three for Martell Webster. Anot...

  14. Maverick Scowl

    Henry Abbott

    How do you get a playoff blowout win in San Antonio? With attitude. Watch the highlights of the Mavericks -Spurs last night. Just about every Dallas player has a vicious scowl on their faces at all times. I don't know what's in their Gatorade bottles...

  15. I Love Watching Dwyane Wade

    Henry Abbott

    The highlights of last night's game are pretty sick, especially when he wraps his dribble all the way around the defender at half-court, then tosses an enormous on-target alley-oop to Shaquille O'Neal. That's just one of the good plays, however. By ...

  16. Bad Omen for Portland

    Henry Abbott

    They're touting last night's Blazer victory over Seattle as one of the bright spots of Portland's season so far. But I just watched the highlights and I'm not so sure. Watch. You'll see. Near the end, Ruben Patterson and Nate McMillan mark the victor...
