It was the story arc that led GM Bill King to pull off the blockerbuster draft-day trade that brought Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry from Boston to Brooklyn. The deal not only brought three players with championship pedigrees, but brought Brooklyn what it clearly lacked — a true leader. “He’s the heartbeat of the team,” guard Alan Anderson says of Garnett. “He has a demeanor like, ‘We are Brooklyn.’ “When you think of Brooklyn, New York, you think of tough, hard-working.

Before this week's addition of Alan Anderson for a mere $947,907, Brooklyn was over the luxury-tax threshold by $29,515,102 ... which projected to a 2013-14 luxury tax of $82,939,184. Now? Adding Anderson on a minimum deal nudges those figures to $30,463,009 ... and a mind-numbing $87,199,293. So the signing of a player due to make just under $1 million next season will cost Brooklyn more than $4 million in additional taxes under the league's much more punitive tax laws that go into effect this season.

Ross could not crack the Raptors’ small lineup down the stretch, with DeMar DeRozan, Landry Fields and Alan Anderson each playing ahead of him. Valanciunas played a few fourth-quarter minutes with Amir Johnson in foul trouble, but came out in the final stretch. Kyle Lowry’s four final-minute points won the game for the Raptors. “I had to get Jonas out at the end, bless his heart,” Casey said. He said, ‘Coach, [Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson] is coming really fast.’ I said, ‘Guess what: All of them are coming fast.’ … Everything is so fast for rookies. I don’t care who you are, what level of rookie you are: It is a learning experience. National Post

The ejection took place with 1:18 left in the second quarter. Howard had picked up a technical foul earlier in the game for arguing a non-call. "It's too late now," Howard said Monday when informed of the NBA's decision. Los Angeles Times

The money quote came from Alan Anderson: “He's like the glue. He does everything, man. Without Jose I don't even know if we could win any of these games. He's amazing to us. Rebounding, passing, vocally leads everybody, talking, gets everybody in their positions. He's just like our calm, poised leader on the floor. It's great to have him.” Toronto Star
