Alfes: Clippers unleashing Most Improved candidate Harrell

The ballots for the NBA’s Most Improved Player award will surely feature the undersized, bundle-of-energy center known as Montrezl Harrell. Statistically, this makes sense.

Warriors star DeMarcus Cousins knows he’s a prime target of pick-and-roll attacks

DeMarcus Cousins is frustrated. His struggles with the Golden State Warriorsshould really come as no surprise given both his inevitably gradual re-acclimation to the game after tearing his Achilles and his complicated fit within Steve Kerr’s system — on both sides of the ball.
