  2. Kyrie Irving out at least two weeks with bicep strain, may well be done for season

    Mar 17, 2014, 7:28 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Phoenix Suns

    It was an innocent play, Kyrie Irving was trying to strip Blake Griffin of the ball on an offensive rebound (the ball hit Griffin in the face and he tried to sell that as a foul). The force of Griffin coming down (and the fact he’s made out of granite) and Kyrie Irving’s arm going…

  3. Andrew Bynum out Monday for Pacers with swelling in knee

    Andrew Bynum, Charlie Villanueva

    Andrew Bynum has been back on an NBA court for all of a week, playing in two games, he has averaged 11.5 points and 9.5 rebounds a game. He played 20 minutes Saturday night in Detroit. That was enough to lead to swelling in his knee, which will keep him out Monday night against the…

    Mar 17, 2014, 3:58 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Mar 17, 2014, 3:27 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    After injuring his neck against the Pacers he is out against the Nuggets Wednesday and maybe longer. Pistons should not rush him back.

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  14. Sunday NBA grades: Golden State’s Curry, Thompson put on a show

    Mar 17, 2014, 2:57 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the King of the Hill/True Detective mashup… Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors. Early in the third quarter Houston took an 18 point lead over Golden State and seemed to be in complete control. Then the shots from Warriors backcourt started to…

  15. Klay Thompson three proves to be game winner (VIDEO)

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Golden State and Portland are in the packed middle of the Western Conference playoff race, coming into the game the Warriors were the six seed, 2.5 games back of the Trail Blazers.

  16. Heat execute in final minutes, Rockets still learning, fall in Miami

    Mar 16, 2014, 7:41 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Miami Heat

    Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami. Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers…

  17. Faux Scalabrine “30 for 30″ trailer is brilliant (VIDEO)

    Mar 16, 2014, 2:01 PM EDT


    How I wish “Brian” were real. Alas, this is a faux documentary on former NBA player Brian Scalabrine is not real. Still, the trailer is brilliant. An actual documentary following Scalabrine, now an assistant coach with the Golden State Warriors, would be interesting. He’s long been one of the better interviews around the NBA, his…

  18. Pistons’ Andre Drummond leaves game with head/neck injury (VIDEO)

    Mar 15, 2014, 8:59 PM EDT

    2014 BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge

    How Detroit’s Andre Drummond staggered and went down after this hit, and how he stayed down for several minutes (all the way through the ensuing commercial break not part of the above video), is a little frightening. The medical staff brought out a stretcher but he got up under his own power and was helped…

  19. Phil Jackson to Knicks could work. It probably won’t, but it could.

    Mar 15, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT


    Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

  20. Enes Kanter attacks rim, DeAndre Jordan can’t stop him

    Mar 15, 2014, 12:46 AM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    I wouldn’t say Utah’s Enes Kanter dunks on the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan because that implied Jordan got in his way. Jordan went for the block but kind of tried to swipe it as Kanter went by. Didn’t work, big dunk for the Jazz. The Clippers went on to win the game 96-97, their 10th consecutive…

  21. It’s confirmed: Phil Jackson returns to Knicks to head up front office, revive franchise

    Mar 14, 2014, 5:35 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    After a disaster of a season in New York, Knicks owner James Dolan has made his bold move to save face. Now we will see if it actually turns the franchise around. The Knicks have announced they will “hold a press conference on Tuesday, March 18 to make a major announcement.” That would be the…

  22. Carlos Boozer talks a lot on the court. If anyone is listening or not.

    Mar 14, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    For the big Thursday night game where the Bulls showed up ready to play and the Rockets just showed up, TNT mic’d up Carlos Boozer for the game. And he talked. And talked. And yelled “and one” at the top of his lungs. And talked. Tomike Shengelia doesn’t want to listen and Boozer keeps talking.…

  23. Another report says Phil Jackson to Knicks deal should be finalized Friday

    Mar 14, 2014, 3:55 PM EDT

    Former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Jackson speaks during a ceremony to retire jersey #34 in honor of former Los Angeles Lakers player O'Neal during their NBA basketball game against the Dallas Mavericks in Los Angeles

    By the time Phil Jackson signs with the Knicks it feels like Ted Mosby will have met the mother of his children. Finally. Pretty much every source in the universe says a deal is close, that includes Ramona Shelburne and Chris Broussard of ESPN. Todd Musburger, Jackson’s Chicago-based agent, is in Los Angeles to finalize…

  24. If/When Knicks fire Woodson he could end up at alma mater Indiana

    Mar 14, 2014, 2:58 PM EDT

    Mike Woodson

    Mike Woodson knows what is coming. It is expected that some time in the next 72 hours Phil Jackson will put pen to paper and become the president of basketball operations for the Knicks. When the season ends he’s going to clean house (CAA is not going to enjoy the experience), bringing in his people…
