Rockets’ Beverley Wins the Skills Challenge

Pat Beverley was introduced as a defensive specialist. Even when he won the Skills Challenge on Saturday, he was described by TNT’s Ernie Johnson as “an irritant.” But he was a winner based on skills.

In some ways, that should not have been a surprise. The Skills challenge has two kinds of shots, layups and 3-pointers, the shots the Rockets take more often than any team, and no mid-range jumper. So when Beverley misfired his passes in the semifinals and finals, falling far behind Jeff Teague and then Brandon Knight, he made his first 3-pointer in each round while they were still missing.

With that, he hoped to take his success in Brooklyn back to Houston.

After another dreadful start to a season, the New York Knicks have reportedly targeted Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri as someone who can turn things around.

According to Frank Isola of The Athletic, owner James Dolan is “plotting to take another run” at Ujiri, even if it takes “Phil Jackson-type money” to lure him away from the reigning NBA champions.

The Knicks are 2-8 to begin the 2019-20 campaign, and Isola reported “time may be running out” for current Knicks president Steve Mills.

Even before a startling news conference in the wake of a blowout loss to Cleveland on Sunday, New York Knicks president Steve Mills had started to lay the internal groundwork for the eventual dismissal of coach David Fizdale, league sources told ESPN.

Mills is selling owner James Dolan on a roster constructed to be highly competitive in the Eastern Conference, leaving Fizdale vulnerable to an ouster only weeks into the second season of a four-year contract that league sources say is worth $22 million.
