Video: Vince Carter banks in buzzer-beater from the other three-point line

Vince Carter, it seems, still has the magic touch. The 38-year-old Memphis Grizzlies guard playing in his closed out the first quarter of Friday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks with a bank shot as time expired — from the three-point line on the opposite end of the court. (Washington Post)

Harrison Barnes could be out “a few weeks” with ankle injury

The Warriors’ Friday night 135-116 win over the Suns was bittersweet: Harrison Barnes suffered a sprained left ankle in the third quarter and left for the remainder of the game. He missed Saturday night’s blowout win over the Kings as well. Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton didn’t have an answer for how long Barnes will be out, but he said it could be a few weeks.

Justin Jackson is saving North Carolina without Marcus Paige

You can make the argument that Marcus Paige is more important to his team than any player in the country. Consider that, last season, Paige hit 94 three-pointers while the rest of UNC combined to make 90. He also led the team in scoring, assists, steals and made free throws, all during a year he was battling nagging injures most of the time. (SB Nation)

Green won’t stop shooting as he adjusts to Spurs new offense

Danny Green has been through shooting slumps before. The fact Green came into the game against the Phoenix Suns shooting 29.5 percent from three didn’t bother him. The hard part is keeping the confidence, remembering to always do what Green is paid for: shooting the ball. “That’s it,” said Green after the Spurs defeated the Suns, 98-84, thanks in part to his season-high 18 points.

UNC’s Close Win Over Kansas State a Promising Sign

The simple fact that UNC defeated Kansas State on Tuesday night holds little significance. Even with a 10-point margin of victory, the win will only mean so much down the road for the Tar Heels....What is significant, however, is the way in which Carolina won — by making big plays when it mattered most.

Marcus Ginyard: Reflections From Paris

In the wake of the recent attack in Paris, my mind has been racing with a wave of different emotions. I’m utterly shocked by these events, and I send my heart to everyone who has been affected by this terrible tragedy. When I first heard the news, like everyone, I was completely surprised.

Microsoft released a new tool that uses an algorithm to guess how you feel, by using a picture of your face.

Joel Berry's Corner 3 Sparks UNC Rally

While officials surrounded a video monitor at the scorer’s table with 3:10 to play and No. 9 North Carolina trailing Kansas State by five points, Roy Williams called a baseline out of bounds play for Joel Berry. The sophomore had missed five of his first six shots, including a bumbling effort several minutes earlier when the ball seemed to simply slide out of his hands mid-air. (Inside Carolina)

Lucas: Big-Time Beginnings

That’s big-time. Every single thing about that final 3:28 was big-time, and I hope you could feel it through your TV, because it felt like the kind of stretch that will be big next week against Maryland, and sometime in January or February in some hostile ACC arena, and again in March. They needed that. They needed to find a way without Marcus Paige and get a win like that. (GoHeels.com)

Roy Williams On The Win Over Kansas State

What did you learn about your team tonight? Roy Williams: “Well, I told them at the 3:28 that I felt like we were in good shape, that our team could be made right now. The team is made during the season. It’s not made in the preseason practicing. The team, the whole chemistry of everybody, the toughness of everybody, is made once you start playing the games."
