  1. LeBron James downs Pacers with incredible third quarter

    May 30, 2013, 11:55 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    LeBron James dribbled around the perimeter, searching for a shot as the shot clock ran down late in the third quarter. Finally, realizing he couldn’t generate a quality look for himself or a teammate, LeBron rose for 25-foot 3-pointer and held his follow through as he backpedaled back on defense. Of course, the shot hit…

  2. Chris Andersen tries to start fight with Tyler Hansbrough (video)

    May 30, 2013, 9:24 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen, Tyler Hansbrough

    Chris Andersen and Tyler Hansbrough have been chippy with each other throughout the Eastern Conference Finals, and this seemed inevitable. The animosity came to a head early in the second quarter of Game 5 between the Heat and Pacers when Andersen and Hansbrough were hit with a double technical, and Andersen got a flagrant 1.…

  3. Clippers speak with Bryon Scott about coaching vacancy

    May 30, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Byron Scott, Haywoode Workman

    It seemed Byron Scott was on a coaching slide – falling from the Nets (a conference-winning team) to the Hornets (a playoff-series-winning team) to the Cavaliers (a non-winning team). But maybe he’s just on a coaching roller coaster, which would mean Scott is on the rise after bottoming out. Chris Broussard of ESPN: Clippers general…

  4. Dwyane Wade’s struggles putting extra pressure on LeBron James and Chris Bosh

    May 30, 2013, 4:28 PM EDT

    Heat head coach Spoelstra and shooting guard Wade get ready for Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis

    It’s not the Pacers. It’s not the Bulls. It’s not the Bucks. At this point, it’s Dwyane Wade. Wade is struggling to score in these playoffs, and his knee seems like a logical explanation. He’s not moving particularly well, and that hasn’t changed regardless of opponent. Three of Wade’s four lowest-scoring playoff series have occurred…

  5. Stan Van Gundy: Roy Hibbert doesn’t hold a candle to Dwight Howard

    May 30, 2013, 3:13 PM EDT

    BASKET-US-LAKERS-PACERS

    Dwight Howard just had the worst postseason of his career. Roy Hibbert, on the other hand, is putting together a great playoff run. Those facts, coupled Howard’s annoying tendencies, have turned some people a little loopy when faced with the following question: Would you rather have Howard or Hibbert? But even Stan Van Gundy, the…

  6. Roy Hibbert dominating Heat inside

    May 29, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert works against Heat's Andersen during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    The LeBron James/Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh Miami Heat have allowed only one player to average at least 10 points, 10 rebounds and shoot 45 percent in a playoff series. Roy Hibbert is on the verge of becoming the second. Hibbert – who’s crushing the threshold by averaging 22.8 points and 12.0 rebounds per game and shooting…

  7. Report: Pistons interview Adrian Griffin

    griffin_110520_0

    The Pistons are searching high and wide for new coach. They’d already interviewed more than six candidates – Nate McMillan, Maurice Cheeks, Mike Budenholzer (since hired by the Hawks), Lindsey Hunter, J.B. Bickerstaff and Darrell Walker – plus, Joe Dumars said he’s interviewed more than just ex-players and candidates reported elsewhere. Add one more interview…

  8. Lionel Hollins can’t enjoy free agency for another month

    May 29, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    The Grizzlies didn’t give Lionel Hollins a contract extension, but since talks fizzled, Hollins helped Memphis to the Western Conference Finals and its finest season in franchise history. As a reward, Hollins can become a coaching free agent and use his newfound leverage to get a good contract in a desirable destination. But if Hollins…

  9. Report: Cavaliers eying scoring forward if they trade No. 1 pick

    May 29, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    DeMarcus Cousins’ talent would tantalize any team, but according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, the Cavaliers have a different profile in mind if they trade the No. 1 pick: The Cavs have acknowledged that they will listen to offers for the top overall pick, and rival executives say they are looking for an established…

  10. Heat don’t scare Pacers

    May 29, 2013, 1:31 AM EDT

    Heat's James and Pacers' Stephenson prepare to play during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    The Miami Heat have been the most heavily scrutinized team in NBA history, and opponents aren’t immune from getting sucked into the publicity whirlwind. For better or worse, playing the Heat is different than any other game. Some teams, like the Bulls, thrive when facing the challenge. Others, like the Nets, crumble under the pressure.…

  11. Lance Stephenson nails corner 3-pointer to end third quarter

    May 28, 2013, 10:58 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    From their 11-0 start on, the Pacers have had Bankers Life Fieldhouse rocking during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. But a back-and-forth third quarter gave the Indiana crowd few reasons to really erupt. At least until Lance Stephenson nails a corner 3-pointer at the buzzer to give the Pacers a 77-70 lead over…

  12. LeBron James blocks George Hill after hiding near sideline

    May 28, 2013, 10:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    No fastbreak is safe with LeBron James on the court. George Hill surely thought he had a sure-fire two point as he rose to the rim without LeBron directly behind him. In theory, that scenario would eliminate the possibility of LeBron making one of his signature chase-down blocks. But LeBron hid near the sideline, essentially…

  13. Lionel Hollins pushes Jerryd Bayless late in Game 4 loss

    May 28, 2013, 9:02 AM EDT

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless

    In the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies’ Game 4 loss to the Spurs, Memphis coach Lionel Hollins pushed Jerryd Bayless near the Grizzlies bench (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward). It seems Bayless was sitting himself down anyway as Hollins pushed him, making the appearance that Hollins pushed Bayless down into a seat potentially…

  14. Birdman scoring from the ‘bird box’

    May 28, 2013, 9:02 AM EDT

    Miami Heat fans

    Chris Andersen hasn’t missed a shot in more than two weeks. He’s 13-for-13 in the Eastern Conference Finals and 31-for-37 in the playoffs. And now, Birdman has a nickname to describe the area where his scoring is generated. Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald: While describing his role on the team and deflecting praise for…

  15. Celtics ‘likely’ to buy out Paul Pierce? Reports conflict

    May 28, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    The Celtics are at a crossroads. Again. For the first time since grouping Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, Boston didn’t win a playoff series. So, as has become annual tradition, the Celtics are considering tearing down their team and rebuilding. Perhaps, it’s finally time. Allen is already in Miami. Garnett might retire. Rajon…

  16. Mike Conley on verge of stardom as Grizzlies on verge of elimination

    May 26, 2013, 1:39 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Where is the line between the NBA’s stars and the league’s merely good players? Star is such a loaded term – full of reputation and production and marketing and talent and style – that, occasionally, it can be useful to sort through all the distractions and look at objective measures. Let’s examine players in order…

  17. LeBron James-Paul George matchup reaches awesome levels in Game 2

    May 25, 2013, 12:06 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    As the final seconds of the third quarter wound down, Paul George dribbled at the top and sized up LeBron James, arguably the NBA’s best wing defender. Without the benefit of LeBron overplaying him or the absence of a rim protector, George drove left past LeBron and ferociously dunked over Chris Andersen as a foul…

  18. Quote of the Day: Roy Hibbert happy to put his ‘nuts in line of fire’

    May 24, 2013, 1:19 PM EDT

    Shane Battier, Roy Hibbert

    Hibbert on if Battier does it again, "I have no problem putting my nuts in line of fire. …They pay me all this money, I got to be there." — Stefan Bondy (@nydninternets) May 24, 2013 Sometimes, we forget how much playing in the NBA is like any regular job. You show up. You get…

  19. Raptors prepared to triple Masai Ujiri’s salary

    Masai Ujiri

    The Raptors’ pursuit of Nuggets general manager Masai Ujiri is kicking into high gear. Toronto received permission to speak with Ujiri, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment CEO Tim Leiweke is aggressively pursuing Ujiri to become the Raptors’ general manager and plans to present an offer that will pay…

  20. Mike Krzyzewski must replace Nate McMillan as Team USA assistant

    May 23, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    Nate McMillan Mike D'Antoni

    Mike Krzyzewski will return as Team USA’s head basketball coach, but he must replace both his NBA assistants. Not only is Mike D’Antoni moving on, so will Nate McMillan, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. McMillian, via Spears: “It was a great experience with Coach K,” McMillan said. “Jerry Colangelo did a great…

  21. Pablo Prigioni wants to stay in NBA

    May 23, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Pablo Prigioni, D.J. Augustin

    Pablo Prigioni reportedly was considering returning to Spain in part because his wife wanted to go back, but the Knicks guard is making intentions clear now. Marc Berman of the New York Post: “If I can choose, I prefer to play in the United States and stay in the NBA,’’ Prigioni said on Argentine radio.…

  22. John Calipari: Cavaliers’ GM scouted Kentucky more than any other GM

    May 23, 2013, 11:22 AM EDT

    Marshall v Kentucky

    There’s a big risk that comes with draft Nerlens Noel. And not just his torn ACL. Noel played only 24 games last season, and although that’s more than twice as many as Kyrie Irving did his lone season at Duke, it’s still a pretty small sample. I think Noel proved enough to justify becoming the…

  23. Wizards wary of becoming too young

    May 23, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal

    The Wizards rightfully believe they would have made the playoffs if they remained healthy this season. Washington went 24-25 with John Wall – a better winning percentage than the eighth-seeded Bucks (38-44). And when Wall, Nene and Bradley Beal all played, the Wizards were 15-7. Washington should be excited to have a team on the…

  24. Chris Andersen complements Heat’s Big Three so well

    May 23, 2013, 2:39 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    For the 145th time since they joined forces in Miami, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh finished as the Heat’s top three scorers. For the first time in the 2013 calendar year, the fourth-leading scorer – Chris Andersen – scored more than 15 points. It’s been much less of a concern that many expected…

  25. Kevin Love and Flip Saunders hitting it off

    May 22, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Damian Lillard

    NEW YORK – Kevin Love and Flip Saunders shared lunch yesterday, as both were headed to the NBA Draft lottery that night. They talk about the same issues that dominate their bi-daily conversations – leadership, expectations, workouts and, as Saunders put it, “more than anything, just about the vision that we have and how we…
