  1. Video: Another day, another Channing Frye game winner

    Mar 1, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    Channing Frye Steve Nash

    Two nights in a row Channing Frye gets free and knocks down the game-winning three for the Suns, this time in overtime in New Jersey. Kris Humphries makes the defensive mistake of going for the pass not staying with Frye (his man), and because of that he gets hung up on Marcin Gortat’s massive screen.…

  2. Does reducing the size of a max contract mean more player movement?

    There are not many things we can say for sure about the new Collective Bargaining Agreement that the players and owners are hammering out. Or will hammer out, right now they are just posturing. No actual work has taken place. But we know two things are pretty much certain. The owners will want less money…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Here We Stay, Sacramento

    Mar 1, 2011, 6:59 AM EST

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    What you missed while being amazed by Charlie Sheen… Kings 105, Clippers 99: The Kings got a home win with a dramatic fourth quarter comeback as newcomer Marcus Thornton went off for 29 on 16 shots. And all of that is secondary. This was Here We Stay night in Sacramento, when local fans filled the…

  4. Nuggets lose Gallinari for 7-10 days with broken toe

    Mar 1, 2011, 1:10 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Denver pushed hard to make sure they got Danilo Gallinari as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, but they’re not going to get much out of him for a week or so. Gallinari sat out Monday night’s Nuggets win against the Hawks and will miss the next week to 10 days because of a broken…

  5. Knicks buy out and waive Kelenna Azubuike

    Feb 28, 2011, 10:37 PM EST

    Image (1) azubuike_dunk-thumb-250x140-17379.jpg for post 3472

    Knicks fans should robbed. Kelenna Azubuike was potentially a great fit in Mike D’Antoni’s system. But the torn patellar tendon that robbed him of most of last season with the Warriors (he came east in the David Lee trade) has kept him off the court this entire season. Monday night the Knicks bought out his…

  6. Cavaliers Antawn Jamison out 5-7 weeks with broken finger

    Feb 28, 2011, 8:09 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison

    Because the Cavaliers season hasn’t been rough enough, when they had finally won three of their last five and had a couple quality wins, you get this…. Antawn Jamison, the Cavaliers leading scorer, will be out at least five weeks following surgery on his left pinkie finger due to an injury he suffered Sunday. The…

  7. If Mike Bibby or Troy Murphy is in, who is out in Miami?

    Feb 28, 2011, 4:49 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Lots of talk about the Miami Heat picking up another aging veteran on a minimum salary. Because they don’t have enough of those. But Troy Murphy and Mike Bibby are out on the markets due to buyouts and both are looking at the Heat as an option. Most likely it appears Bibby is South Beach…

  8. Tony Parker out two to four weeks with calf injury

    Feb 28, 2011, 4:32 PM EST

    Image (1) NBA_Parker.jpg for post 6216

    During All-Star weekend, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich kept saying he was waiting for the other shoe to drop. His core players — Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Richard Jefferson and DeJuan Blair — had not missed a game all season. Popovich knew he’d been lucky. Up until now. Tony Parker will be out two…

  9. Report: Wizards buy Mike Bibby out; he’ll sign with Heat

    Feb 28, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    UPDATE 3:30 pm: According to Sam Amick, Bibby intends to sign with the Miami Heat once he clears waivers. Amick also notes that Bibby will take about $6 million less to get out of his current deal. Miami seems a good fit for what Bibby brings to the table — floor-spacing three-point shooting. That’s about…

  10. Pistons president Dumars shows support for embattled coach

    Detroit Pistons Introduce John Kuester

    How bad are things in Detroit? Follow this link to the video of coach John Kuester getting ejected Friday night. Some players on the bench — ones that skipped practice allegedly protesting the coach — laugh when he gets tossed. The situation is ugly, my friends. And it is not changing. Team president Joe Dumars…

  11. Clippers to celebrate Black History Month. In the wrong month.

    Feb 28, 2011, 2:58 PM EST

    Clippers Black History Month

    There is a newfound hope in Clippers Nation. Blake Griffin’s skill and motor have changed the culture of that team. Eric Gordon can ball and is a perfect complement. There is a young core, draft picks coming (two first rounders in 2012) and a manageable cap right now. And yet, they are the Clippers. Doing…

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Trade deadline edition

    Feb 28, 2011, 1:33 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The trade deadline shook the league last week, and the ripple impacts our NBA Power Rankings. But at the top it is all Texas. 1. Spurs (49-10, Last Week #2). No deadline moves for this group, nor should there have been. They are 6 games up on the Mavericks and Celtics for best record in…

  13. Video: LeBron James with the sweet no-look pass

    Feb 28, 2011, 12:22 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    LeBron James, going to a little too much one-on-one (Dwyane Wade, we’re looking at you, too), did not make the plays down the stretch the Heat needed against the Knicks. But he made some plays. Like deflecting an Amar’e Stoudemire outlet pass, hustling to the ball and making the ridiculous no-look pass to Erick Dampier…

  14. Hornets want to see new CBA before deciding next step with Chris Paul

    Feb 28, 2011, 12:09 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Utah watched the Carmelo Anthony circus unfold, they heard their star point guard Deron Williams talk about waiting to see about signing an extension, they realized that an extended lockout next season could mean little chance to move him. So they shocked the world and sent to New Jersey. Chris Paul could be a free…

  15. Wizards, Mike Bibby’s agent to meet, talk buyout

    Feb 28, 2011, 11:15 AM EST

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    Well, Mike Bibby, just how badly do you want to go to a contender? Or, to be blunt, how many millions are you willing to give up to go to a contender? The Wizards — who acquired Bibby at the trade deadline as part of the Kirk Hinrich deal — don’t really plan to buy…

  16. PBT Monday Morning One Liners

    Joe and Gavin Maloof will be at a sold-out Power Balance Arena is Sacramento Monday as the fans make their pitch to keep the team in town. Don’t expect the Maloofs to speak — David Stern told them not to. A Nuggets blogger throws a “come watch the game at a sports bar” night —…

  17. Appears Chicago is Rasual Butler’s kind of town

    Feb 28, 2011, 9:51 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    We told you last night Rasual Butler got bought out by the Clippers, now it appears he will be playing out on the wing for the Chicago Bulls. ESPN’s Ric Bucher is reporting Butler is expected to sign with Chicago as soon as he clears waivers. CSN Chicago says there is strong mutual interest. The…

  18. Troy Murphy agrees to buyout with Warriors; looks Boston bound

    Feb 28, 2011, 9:24 AM EST

    Troy_Murphy

    Everyone expected Troy Murphy to be bought out. Sure, rumors floated around about the Warriors keeping him, but that was more negotiating tactic than reality. The Warriors and Murphy reached a buyout deal Sunday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England (Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News broke the story). Once he…

  19. Video: Channing Frye game winner

    Feb 28, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Channing Frye

    This is a classic buzzer beater. Down 1 in the overtime with one last chance, pretty much everyone was expecting Steve Nash or the red-hot Grant Hill to get the look. But Channing Frye was feeling it in the overtime, so even though his shot is contested pretty well by Brandon Rush, he goes up…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the Suns are making a run. So to speak.

    Feb 28, 2011, 6:30 AM EST

    Tyler Hansbrough, Grant Hill

    What you missed while watching Melissa Leo drop an F-bomb on national television…. The Lakers continuing their mastery of the Thunder and the Knicks upset of the Heat were our games of the day. Suns 110, Pacers 108 (OT): One of the more entertaining games of the day was the first one. Grant Hill was…

  21. Clippers buyout Rasual Butler, veteran buyout wave starts

    Feb 27, 2011, 10:15 PM EST

    rasual butler

    Rasual Butler is the first, but you are going to see a rush of these stories in the next few days, followed up with speculation about where they will land. Now is when teams try to negotiate buyouts of contracts for veterans that the team is not going to play. The player takes a little…

  22. It’s not always about Kobe, Lakers defense keys win over Thunder

    Feb 27, 2011, 7:20 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Thabo Sefolosha

    The end of the Lakers win over Oklahoma City was the latest Rorschach test for whether or not you think Kobe Bryant is a clutch player. Kobe scored seven of the Lakers final 10 points (all the others were Pau Gasol free throws) and he pushed the Lakers to a 90-87 win on the road.…

  23. Dwight Howard has a technical problem

    Feb 27, 2011, 1:31 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 5

    Friday night, Dwight Howard picked up technical foul number 15 on the season, helping extend his league lead. Once he gets his “frequent techicals rewards card” stamped one more time gets an automatic one-game suspension. It’s really a matter of when — he has averaged a technical every four games this season and the Magic…

  24. Blake Griffin introduces himself to Celtics, unsuspecting rim

    Feb 27, 2011, 11:26 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    The advantage of throwing alley-oop passes to Blake Griffin is you don’t have to do it particularly well. Randy Foye took advantage of that Saturday in the Clippers loss to the Celtics. Griffin runs the floor harder than any big in the game and he is out on the break calling for the lob, and…

  25. Dwight Howard tells Kevin Durant “not in my house”

    Feb 26, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Winning at the trade deadline is a very different thing than winning your next game. Everything that the Thunder are hoping to get defensively with Kendrick Perkins the Magic already have in Dwight Howard. As evidence, we bring you Dwight shutting down Durant as he drives to the hole Friday night. We have yet to…
