    Jun 4, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Larry Drew

    Whenever I attend a news conference, I set my phone to vibrate. Then, while waiting for the news conference to begin, I check my phone again to make sure I set it correctly. And if the wait is long enough, I check my phone a few more times to make sure I didn’t imagine my…

    DeMarcus Cousins

    As part of the USA Select Team in 2012, DeMarcus Cousins didn’t exactly impress. Carmelo Anthony said Cousins “fouled the s— outta everyone,” and USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo said Cousins “has a lot of growing up to do.” Even Coach Mike Krzyzewski, who offered the most optimistic take on Cousins, said “His time here,…

    You will read plenty of stats that explain why the Heat beat the Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Miami outrebounded Indiana for the first time this series. The Pacers turned the ball over more than any other game this series. Indiana hadn’t shot so poorly on both 2-pointers and 3-pointers in…

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    With Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals long decided and the bench players running out final moments of the Heat’s win over the Pacers, Norris Cole and Jeff Pendergraph were ejected.

    Miami Heat's James runs downcourt after scoring against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    The Miami Heat’s 99-76 win over the Indiana Pacers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals tonight – a 23-point margin – was the biggest Game 7 win in the conference finals or Finals since the Magic beat the Pacers by 24 in 1995. The only other Game 7 win this deep into the…

  7. LeBron skies to finish alley-oop (video)

    Jun 3, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    LeBron James didn’t attempt a shot in the first 7:15 of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Heat didn’t have an assist in the first 13:45, either. If solving both those issues were as simple as it looked on that alley-oop, Miami should have run the play much sooner.

  8. Big Three give Heat big lead over Pacers at halftime of Game 7 of Eastern Conference Finals

    Jun 3, 2013, 9:50 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    The Heat’s Big Three is looking like a Big Three again. LeBron James has 18 points, two rebounds and two assists. Dwyane Wade, showing a lot more fluidity, has 10 points and four rebounds. And after starting 1-for-8, coincidentally his shooting line in Game 6, Chris Bosh made his next two shots – including a…

    Jun 3, 2013, 9:37 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James slam dunks against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    The Heat might not be shooting well early in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals, but as long as they keep pulling in offensive rebounds as frequently as they have been, it might not matter. And when LeBron James can do that, it really doesn’t matter. That basket capped a 9-2 run that got…

  10. Dwyane Wade makes sweet move to dunk in transition (video)

    Jun 3, 2013, 9:27 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    LeBron James won’t have to cut off any questions about Dwyane Wade’s health if Wade keeps making moves like the one he put on Lance Stephenson in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Wade’s insistence on getting more shots won’t be an issue, either. With six first-quarter points, Wade looks like he’s finally on…

  11. Chris Bosh apologizes to Heat

    Jun 3, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers' Hibbert drives on Miami Heat's Bosh during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    Chris Bosh apologized to Heat teammates for his poor play against the Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals, according to Tom Haberstroh of ESPN. Bosh’s problems have shown most noticeably on offense – where he’s averaging just 11 points on 41 percent shooting – but I believe those issues are largely due to his defensive…

    Lionel Hollins reportedly has permission to interview with other teams, but the Nets are crossing their Ts and dotting there Is, because those tampering fines can get expensive.

  13. Win or lose against Heat in Game 7, Pacers deserve recognition among NBA’s elite franchises of last 20 years

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    When the Indiana Pacers hired Larry Brown in 1993, he said “I’d like to win an N.B.A. championship for the Indiana Pacers.” Twenty years later, the Pacers are still searching for their first NBA title. (They won three in the ABA.) But they’ve still belong among the league’s most successful franchises. Here are the leaders…

  14. Heat aren’t infallible, and it’s unfair to treat them as such

    Jun 3, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Ray Allen, Dwyane Wade

    When LeBron James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami, critics decried the end of competitive balance. They saw LeBron’s “Not one, not two, not three…” remark not as a hopeful boast, but as the inevitable. The Heat would win the championship every year from then on, and there was nothing anyone could do…

  15. NBA salary cap to rise only slightly

    O.J. Mayo, Dwight Howard

    The NBA’s salary cap and luxury-tax line are determined by the league’s Basketball Related Income. The more money the league makes, the higher the salary cap and luxury-tax line. Early estimates indicate the NBA didn’t generate as much revenue as expected this season. Marc Stein of ESPN: Hearing early projections given to GMs and owners…

  16. Report: Brian Shaw wants to coach the Clippers

    Jun 3, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    It seems four teams with winning record this season will hire new coaches: Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers. The Hawks already hired Mike Budenholzer, a Spurs assistant whom several other teams pursued. With their rosters, the Nets, Grizzlies and Clippers teams will also have significant leverage to lure the prime…

  17. Young Pacers on verge of history

    Jun 2, 2013, 1:02 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Larry Bird was the reigning MVP. David Robinson hadn’t yet been drafted. Julius Erving was still an active player. That’s how long it’s been since a team as young as the 2012-13 Indiana Pacers made the NBA Finals. Thanks to their 91-77 win over the Miami Heat tonight, the Pacers are only one win from…

  20. Nerlens Noel to visit Magic

    May 31, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Marshall v Kentucky

    Nerlens Noel, absent another prospect stepping up to usurp his place, has been widely considered the likely No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. Otto Porter (positional fit), Ben McLemore (traditional skillset for his position) and Victor Oladipo (personality) have each garnered support in some corners to be selected by the Cavaliers, but it’s…

    The Knicks expect Jason Kidd will return next season. Kidd said his “plan” is to come back, too. But the guard still hasn’t completely made up his mind. Kidd, via Marc Berman of the New York Post: “I am thinking about it. We’ll see. I have to make a decision. We’ll see what happens. Right…

  22. Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem replace Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh as LeBron’s scoring sidekicks

    May 31, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, LeBron James

    Chris Bosh missed the Heat’s first shot, Dwyane Wade missed their second, and Udonis Haslem missed their third. Of those three players, one attempted more shots than each of the other two and also didn’t miss again. Who was it? LeBron James has led the Heat in scoring in all five games of the Eastern…

    George Hill picked up his fourth foul midway through the third quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and after he hit a technical free throw on his way to the bench (thanks to jawing between Mario Chalmers, David West and Udonis Haslem), the Pacers led by two points. By the time Hill…

    May 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    The Denver Nuggets played fairly well after Danilo Gallinari tore his ACL, going 6-1 to close the regular season, though the were upset by the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the playoffs. But the Nuggets are clearly better with Gallinari, who averaged 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game, and…

  25. Paul George and Roy Hibbert score Pacers’ first 29 points in loss to Heat

    May 31, 2013, 2:28 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Chris Andersen’s shoulder/stare down/shove of Tyler Hansbrough early in the second quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals distracted from another interesting development that followed. Once the dust settled, Hansbrough made one of two free throws granted due to Andersen’s flagrant 1. Those were the Pacers’ first points scored by someone other than…
