Before the Orlando Magic matched up against the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday at Target Center, Jalen Suggs’ high school presented him with a unique honor. Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis, where Suggs graduated from in 2020, held a ceremony Thursday night ahead of its boy’s varsity basketball game to retire Suggs’ basketball and football jerseys. “A lot of great memories in this gym,” Suggs said. “A lot of great games, practices. Family and friends all are here, and this night is above all of it. To have everybody come back, be here for me — it’s a product of everything they’ve done for me. T ..read more

Mike Preston: Ravens need more than wishful thinking to join the NFL’s elite | COMMENTARY
The Denver Post
by Tribune News Service

When Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins jumped over a pair of Kansas City Chiefs defenders on a back shoulder throw for a 27-yard touchdown in the third quarter of Sunday’s AFC championship game, it probably set off a lot of wishful thinking in Baltimore. What if the Ravens had just one receiver as tall, fast or talented as the 6-foot-4 Higgins? That play showed the biggest difference between the elite teams and the Ravens: They have impact players, and the Ravens don’t have enough. Three of the final four teams have top quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow and Jalen Hurts. If ..read more

Julius Randle’s return to the All-Star game required a reality check about his attitude
The Denver Post

Julius Randle finally opened up. Perhaps it was the validation of another All-Star selection. Or, maybe it was the confidence immediately after a home victory Thursday over the Miami Heat. Regardless of the reason, Randle provided the first real explanation of his emotional transformation. From last season’s petulance to this season’s resurrection. The key moment, Randle revealed, was a visit in the offseason from assistant coach Johnnie Bryant, who got real about the attitude adjustment required from the Knicks top player. “He was talking about the year before and said something like, ‘If you ..read more

Kiszla: Nuggets need Alex Caruso. Bones Hyland needs to get out of Denver. Let’s make a deal.

Let’s make no Bones about it: No matter how much you love his smile, his shot and his swagger, irreconcilable differences are tearing apart point guard Bones Hyland and the Nuggets. If Hyland isn’t gone from Denver before the NBA trade deadline expires Feb. 9, I won’t be surprised. I will be shocked. While Hyland wants to put more shine on his rising star, all the Nuggets care about is winning the first championship in franchise history. With the goals of Hyland and the Nuggets at cross purposes, an amicable divorce seems not only advisable, but nearly unavoidable. So maybe the real question i ..read more

BOULDER,CO:February 2:Colorado Buffaloes’ KJ Simpson drives on California Golden Bear’s ND Okafor in Boulder on February 2, 2023.(Cliff Grassmick/Staff Photographer) Colorado certainly flirted with disaster. But at this point, the Buffaloes gladly will take a win regardless of the style points. The CU men’s basketball team once again faced all it could handle from lowly California, yet unlike a loss earlier this season in Berkeley the Buffs were able to take control down the stretch, pulling away from the Golden Bears for a 59-46 victory in a Pac-12 Conference battle on Thursday night at the C ..read more

Heat come up short 106-104 in wild finish in key seeding battle in New York
The Denver Post

It was what it hadn’t been between these teams for a while: Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks with meaning. With the Heat entering with a two-game lead over the Knicks for the sixth and final automatic playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, it might not exactly have rekindled memories of Jeff Van Gundy hanging on Alonzo Mourning’s leg, or P.J. Brown turning Charlie Ward into a ragdoll during Pat Riley’s Heat coaching heyday, but the implications were real. And ultimately painful for the Heat in their 106-104 loss Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, “We put ourselves in position,” coach Erik ..read more

Jamal Murray erupts for 33, Nikola Jokic logs 17th triple-double in Nuggets win

If Jamal Murray was disappointed about being bypassed for the All-Star Game, he dwelled on it for five minutes. Facing All-Star guard Steph Curry, Murray erupted for 33 points, and the Nuggets pounded the Warriors, 134-117 on Thursday night. Denver improved to 36-16 on the season, including 24-4 at Ball Arena. Nikola Jokic authored his NBA-leading 17th triple-double, finishing with 22 points, 13 rebounds and 16 assists. Denver improved to 17-0 in games Jokic has registered a triple-double. Beyond the gaudy stats, it’s Jokic’s efficiency (he shot 9-of-13 from the floor) that has him in the mix ..read more

Knicks escape with a 106-104 victory against surging Heat without Jalen Brunson

Not even facial recognition could see that coming. Without an ill and inactive Jalen Brunson, the Knicks held off the surging Miami Heat despite bumbling and stumbling through the final minute of a 106-104 victory at MSG. It ended with a potential game-winner from Miami’s Tyler Herro bouncing off the rim, allowing Julius Randle to breathe easy after his turnover nearly squandered the game. The final moments were absolutely wild. It included two awful passes and turnovers from RJ Barrett — who was otherwise brilliant Thursday — and a stumble from Randle with 2.1 seconds that was reviewed by the ..read more
