Welcome to The Daily Yam, bringing you the top play from the night before, anything else you might have missed, and what to look forward to today. It’s your one-stop shop when you skipped last night’s action, or have forgotten what day it is. Last night, Tyson Chandler awoke from his playoff slumber to swat away Tyler Hansbrough’s weak attempt at a layup.
If you weren’t watching the Golden State Warriors take on the New York Knicks Wednesday night, you weren’t doing Wednesday night right. As expected, the game was a shootout through and through, with offense aplenty. The shorthanded Warriors were going to have to rely heavily on Stephen Curry, and boy did the electric point guard deliver.
Not sure if this will strike fear in Knick opponents, but news just broke that Kenyon Martin will be joining Rasheed Wallace and Tyson Chandler to make a badass trifecta. But just how badass are they? We break down the numbers as League officials are poop their pants. Their best, angriest moments caught on camera after the jump…
It wasn’t all rainbows, butterflies, and tender hugs for Jeremy Lin in his return to New York. Reigning Defensive POY Tyson Chandler got particularly defensive in the second quarter of Monday night’s contest against Lin, whacking him in the face and drawing a flagrant foul.
It’s not a rare sight to see a Raymond Felton-Tyson Chandler alley-oop these days, but during last night’s game against the Miami Heat, the play was especially important. No Carmelo Anthony, no Amar’e Stoudemire, no Iman Shumpert. The Knicks were shorthanded, but no matter – Raymond Felton went off for 27 points and 7 assists in New York’s 112-92 victory, the second 20-point win over Miami this season.
The Brooklyn Nets won the first New York City showdown yesterday, topping the New York Knicks in overtime and generally looking like a more well-rounded team – mostly because Carmelo Anthony is averse to passing. Though one time he did decided to give up the rock, throwing a lob to Chandler for the huge alley-oop dunk. Maybe he should try that more often.
