Harden's 38 points lead Rockets over Pelicans 117-107 (The Associated Press)

How sliding into the DMs has killed the NBA's home-court advantage (Ball Don’t Lie)

Three decades after what George Karl described as the height of the NBA’s “drug and drinking era” — a span that claimed the careers of All-Stars past, present and future, and not by chance saw home-court advantage spike to a record high in 1987-88 — teams are performing better than ever on the road. According to Tom Haberstroh’s latest piece for ESPN The Magazine, the reason can at least in part be credited to Tinder, Instagram and other applications that give NBA players access to would-be suitors with a touch of a button on their smartphones. Indeed, various apps have done for sex in the NBA what Amazon has done for books.

James Harden on his game-winning sprint: 'I felt like I was Usain Bolt' (Ball Don’t Lie)

James Harden is a dominant offensive player and one of the NBA MVP favorites this season. However, the Houston Rockets superstar is not especially known for his athleticism. While Harden is no slouch when it comes to running and leaping, he’s a force because of how he uses space and baits defenders into making mistakes. The quintessential Harden play involves loping strides (and probably some contact), not incredible straight-line speed or a ferocious dunk.
