Bruin Shootout in OKC

KLove nets 51 points. RW answers with 45 in a OKC Thunder double overtime victory. Any questions?

Another Bruin Punishes the Clippers

Monday night, Kevin Love dropped 39 and 17 on "Lob City" in a TWolves victory over the Clippers, which followed his January 20th dagger 3 at the buzzer in Los Angeles. Last night Jordan Farmar did likewise, burying the Clippers from deep in New Jersey.

Westbrook/Afflalo in Epic Shootout

Kevin Durant goes off for a career high 51 points to combine with Russell Westbrook's 40 in the Thunder's 124-118 OT win over Arron Afflalo's Nuggets. AA had 27 points to lead Denver.

Russell Westbrook’s fire helps fuel Thunder

"He always gets this label of being selfish," Perkins said. "He’s not that at all. The one thing about Russ is he’s a scoring point guard, and that’s what we need him to be. That’s why this team has been successful because he does what he does. "The thing that bothers me … is Derrick Rose is not a true point guard, he is a scoring point guard, but nobody gets on Derrick Rose like they get on Russ."

First Westbrook, Now "Crazy Face" Kevin Love

The Minnesota Timberwolves and star forward Kevin Love have at last reached terms on a contract extension, according to sources close to the situation, beating Wednesday's midnight ET deadline. To do so, Minnesota had to grant Love a player option in the final year of a four-year deal worth in excess of $60 million, sources said.

The L.A. in Arron Afflalo's Game

AK: What drew you to UCLA? Afflalo: I just wanted to stay home. At the time, UCLA was going through a transition period from [Steve] Lavin to Coach [Ben] Howland. They were kind of in some rough times, so just the idea of coming back in and restoring some of that rich tradition that UCLA had. Being one of the main reasons UCLA got back to prominence after being down a few years, it was really fun for me. To do it right here in my backyard was really cool.

AA's Lockout Perspective

"In all honesty, and it's hard to do, but it takes responsibility on both parties. Obviously, I'm a player and I can only take responsibility from the players' standpoint, but it just takes responsibility from both parties and understanding of that. Until you have a complete understanding that it's not worth it, that sometimes winning a fight will result in a loss. You have to know that. And if you get caught up in the moment and you don't recognize that, regardless of whether you win your battle or not, player or owner, you're gonna do damage. "You have to ask yourself, is that damage worth it. Is that damage worth that win?" A refreshing respite from the constant blame game that the NBA negotiations have become.

#1 NBA Wing Free Agent in 2011: Arron Afflalo

According to SI.com, Afflalo should be the top free agent target for NBA teams wishing to add a wing. He earns special mention for his "two-way" abilities, making it clear that exceptional defense is still a valued commodity in the NBA, despite stale jokes to the contrary.

Arron Afflalo radio interview in Denver

Back-to-back 15 point games. PT in crunch time. Combines with Ty Lawson to give team a crazy fast and in-your-face tempo. Fans and media here are loving AA. After the interview, co-host Scott Hastings (NBA champ with the Pistons) who does color for Nuggets TV was raving about AA's work ethic and role on the team.

AA: Mr. Court Marshall

Great article in the Denver Post today on AA. You gotta read the compliments the Nugget players and brass have for Afflalo - not that that surprises any of us., of course.
