    Jennings was cemented to the bench in the fourth quarter of the Pistons' season opener. Prior to the season, our own Mike Payne backed up his answer as to who won the preseason point guard battle between Brandon Jennings and D.J. Augustin, giving the nod to Augustin. Stan Van Gundy seemed to disagree, at least to start the season, plugging Brandon Jennings into the starting lineup on Wednesday night for the season opener. But maybe we should pay more attention to overall minutes and, specifically, which point guard should be finishing close games. That may ultimately be the real controversy.

  • Pistons vs. Nuggets: Detroit looks familiar in loss in Denver

    30 Oct 2014 | 5:57 am
    New President of Basketball Operations. New GM. New coach. New season. Six new players. So why does it seem like we've seen this movie before? The Detroit Pistons kicked off their 2014-15 campaign with an 89-79 loss to the Denver Nuggets in Denver. From the start of the game until there was less than 1:30 left in the game, no team led by more than six in a game that had 18 lead changes and 14 ties. Josh Smith was the Pistons' leading scorer with 25. If you watched this game, you would say that it was an ugly game. If you read the box score, you would say that was an ugly game. There was a…
  • Pistons vs. Nuggets: Stan Van Gundy era starts with a loss

    The Pistons begin the Stan Van Gundy era 0-1. Josh Smith came out hot in the first quarter, scoring 15 points. But he did so almost exclusively on jump shots, and when you're living on 25 percent shots, things eventually even out. The offense sputtered the rest of the way. One might have thought that a prolifically awful season last year might have led to a different mentality for Smith. And one might have thought that Stan Van Gundy would have strict boundaries for his jumper-happy player. But neither looked to be the case in the first game of the season. Andre Drummond struggled with foul…

The Giants pitcher proudly donated the jersey he wore for his victory over the Detroit Tigers in Game 3 of the 2012 World Series to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Each October, representatives from baseball’s shrine collect as many items from that season’s World Series to display for the next year.

With the Giants’ 3-2 victory over the Royals in Wednesday’s Game 7, Bochy became just the 10th manager in history to win three World Series titles. The other nine form a legendary list that spans the decades – Walter Alston, Sparky Anderson, Miller Huggins, Tony La Russa, Connie Mack, Joe McCarthy, John McGraw, Casey Stengel, and Joe…

    29 Oct 2014 | 3:47 pm
    In Kansas City, Game 7 of the World Series conjures up memories of Bret Saberhagen's brilliance, a St. Louis meltdown and the only Royals championship in 1985. There was Willie McCovey's game-ending lineout that was oh-so-close to being a Series-winning hit in 1962 and another loss 40 years later by Barry Bonds & Co. to the Angels. Be it Babe Ruth, Jack Morris or Mariano Rivera, the moments created in an all-or-nothing game resonate through baseball history.

The question was not only the title of Cox’s speech given in Goldstein Auditorium on Wednesday night, but is also a reference to a central theme in Cox’s life, which encompasses her intersectional identities as a trans* woman of color.

He says he doesn’t really like to yell, much less talk. But in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York he’s known as “Bam.” Behind a childish face and a mouth that rarely opens, the 5-foot-10 Reddish leads a much-improved SU secondary. The senior also leads the Orange (3-5, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) in interceptions with two and his open-field tackling has stood out among a set of defensive backs that are routinely targeted…

When it’s bad enough, chronic joint pain can really impact your well-being and cause you to stop doing your favorite activities.
