    The Cavaliers are not that bad. They’re not great, but they are not that bad. They picked up a dramatic win over the Bucks Friday night because Mo Williams is fearless and hit the hard shot. Don’t believe me, then watch.

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dwyane Wade struggles while Darko is hot… huh?

    Nov 25, 2010, 3:34 AM EST

    Spoelstra_cringe

    What you missed while researching how to deep fry a turkey… Magic 104, Heat 95: How this game would end was played out in the opening six minutes — Jameer Nelson was driving straight into the heart of the Heat defense. He would come off the screen and get great penetration. This looked a lot…

  3. Delonte West breaks wrist, maybe out for season

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:15 PM EST

    Delonte West

    Already without Rajon Rondo, the Boston Celtics have now lost Delonte West with a broken wrist suffered against the Nets, according to a tweet from Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. After the game, Doc Rivers said West could miss the rest of the regular season. If not, he certainly will miss a lot of…

  4. Seth MacFarlane’s odd Nike/LeBron ad

    Nov 24, 2010, 8:30 PM EST

    LeBron James

    Nike went out and hired Seth MacFarlane to do a cartoon ad helping sell the Nike LeBron 8s. If you just asked “who is Seth MacFarlane?” then you have yet to set the DVR for all the shows on Fox after The Simpson’s every Sunday. And you’re probably the guy who keeps asking the neighbors…

  5. Brandon Roy may be back on the court Friday

    Nov 24, 2010, 7:36 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Brandon Roy, he of the pretty much permanently screwed up knees, is practiced with the Blazers again on Wednesday and may play Friday, he told the Oregonian. “I went through the whole practice and felt pretty good,” Roy said. “But I will take it one day at a time and try to get as close…

  6. Looming lockout or no, there will still be a draft this June. After that? Good question.

    Nov 24, 2010, 4:10 PM EST

    2010 NBA Draft

    Yes, we’re still pretty convinced in these parts that there will be a lockout come July 1. Hope we’re wrong, don’t think we are. But lockout or no, there will be an NBA Draft this June 23. Clippers fans can start debating now whether or not to draft Harrison Barnes with that top pick. What…

  7. Beaubois likely out another three, four weeks in Dallas

    Nov 24, 2010, 3:30 PM EST

    roddybeaubois

    Maybe the Dallas Mavericks can get a Roddy Beaubois for Christmas? The second-year guard that was going to play a much larger role with the team this season — and bring the speed and playmaking the team lacked last season — is out and may be out another three to four weeks, a source told…

  8. Elton Brand suspended one game for flagrant foul

    Nov 24, 2010, 2:58 PM EST

    Brand_McGee_Foul

    Elton Brand’s ugly foul on JaVale McGee late in the Sixers loss to the Washington Wizards Tuesday has earned him a one-game suspension from the league. Brand will sit out tonight’s game on the road against Toronto, the league announced. The suspension for Brand is without pay. He earned it for a cheap shot, frustration…

  9. Thunder assign Cole Aldrich to D-League

    Nov 24, 2010, 2:08 PM EST

    Image (1) Caldrich-thumb-250x166-22051.jpg for post 6295

    Cole Aldrich, the No. 11 pick that anchored the Kansas Jayhawks last season, has been assigned to the Tulsa 66ers of the D-League. It’s a smart move — Aldrich needs seasoning to become the defensive anchor in the middle the Thunder hope he can be for them. However, with Nenad Krstic and Serge Ibaka and…

  10. Stan Van Gundy, Eric Spoelstra fire back at Phil Jackson

    Nov 24, 2010, 1:37 PM EST

    Image (1) jackson.jpg for post 2306

    Phil Jackson just loves doing what he did to the Heat yesterday, going on the radio in Chicago and lobbing a verbal hand grenade into their midst. As if they weren’t dealing with enough, now they can answer some questions about Pat Riley coming down from on high to take over the team. Stan Van…

  11. Vince Carter to sit Wednesday against Miami, JJ Redick to start

    Nov 24, 2010, 1:23 PM EST

    Image (1) nba_Carter.jpg for post 211

    Things could have been a lot worse after Vince Carter said he felt a “sharp pain” in his knee the other night. He’s not expected to be out long. But he will be out Wednesday night against the Heat, according to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. JJ Redick will get the start in his place. That…

  12. San Antonio is back — and interesting this time

    Nov 24, 2010, 12:52 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    The San Antonio Spurs, even at their peak, felt like your father’s favorite team — quiet and efficient. Good defense, methodical pace, the backboard is your friend. Fundamental. Controlled. That’s not bad, I love my father — I wish I were more like him in a lot of ways — but that doesn’t mean I…

  13. Thunder get creative with Nick Collison’s contract

    Nov 24, 2010, 11:31 AM EST

    collison

    Oh, Sam Presti is being clever again. We told you yesterday that the Thunder have locked up Nick Collison in a new deal that runs through the summer of 2014. It helps keep their core together and gives them a solid backup big they know they can count on. But the deal itself, pretty creative,…

  14. Danny Green out, Ime Udoka likely in for San Antonio

    Nov 24, 2010, 10:44 AM EST

    09udoka

    The Spurs top of the roster is just fine, thank you very much. But they are making some tweaks on the bottom half. Danny Green was brought in just a week ago but now he has been let loose by the team. In his place, the Spurs are expected to bring back Ime Udoka, according…

  15. Report: Kings have made calls to trade for a point guard

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:46 AM EST

    Image (1) Evans_3-thumb-250x339-9343.jpg for post 1342

    The struggling Sacramento Kings have an idea of what they need to do. Right now, Tyreke Evans is the point guard for the Sacramento Kings. And he’s not a bad one. Certainly a score-first guy but someone averaging 5.2 assists per game, about 18.9 percent of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor…

  16. Quote of the day: Shaq is like laundry

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:06 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal

    “Shaq is like paradise, man. You ever wash your sheets and then go outside and hang them out, and the sun dries them? You ever smell the sheets? That’s what Shaq is, Shaq is like.” —Kevin Garnett, talking about what it’s like to play with Shaquille O’Neal, via the Boston Herald.

  17. Video: Brandon Rush and the Pacers were hitting everything

    Nov 24, 2010, 8:17 AM EST

    Image (1) brush.jpg for post 2683

    Couple of very nice days for Indiana, what with beating the heat then getting the win on the second night of a back-to-back over Cleveland. And you know things are going your way when shots like this are falling. Right Brandon Rush?

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Think Doug Collins is glad he came back to coaching now?

    Nov 24, 2010, 3:15 AM EST

    John Wall, Evan Turner

    What you missed while trying to snap up McDonald’s Happy Meals before they all get banned… Kobe being Kobe was part of the Lakers beating the Bulls in our Game of the Night. Wizards 116, Sixers 114 (OT): If Doug Collins were to call up some executives at TNT to see if they would take…

  19. Game of the night: Where you can’t throw anything new at Kobe

    Nov 24, 2010, 2:33 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Luol Deng

    Kobe has seen it before. On much bigger stage. He knows how a Tom Thibodeau team is going to defend him. Whenever and wherever he got the ball Tuesday night he patiently waited to see where the double would come from, then he would try to pass to the cutter. Or he kicks it to…

  20. Nets Terrence Williams suspended two games by team

    Nov 23, 2010, 11:12 PM EST

    Image (1) NBA_williams-thumb-250x185-5474.jpg for post 19

    Terrence Williams, welcome to Avery Johnson’s doghouse. Williams has been suspended for two games — Tuesday night’s win over Atlanta and an upcoming trip to Boston — for “repeated violations of team policy.” Johnson was more direct with ESPNNewYork. “It’s something we’ve dealt with for the past two or three weeks,” Johnson said. “I don’t…

  21. Elton Brand ejected after one ugly flagrant two, fine coming

    Nov 23, 2010, 10:57 PM EST

    Image (1) elton_brand-thumb-250x222-21344.jpg for post 4402

    Elton Brand is going to be writing a check to the league soon. In the fourth quarter of the Sixers overtime loss to the Wizards (which never should have gone to overtime, but check out Baseline to Baseline later for that story), JaVale McGee had a wide open dunk and once he was in the…

  22. New Warriors owners talking openly about San Francisco, Oakland may not like that

    Nov 23, 2010, 8:33 PM EST

    san-francisco-skyline-at-night

    The new owners of the Golden State Warriors have not been subtle about where they left their heart — they have talked openly about loving San Francisco. They’ve started flirting with The City. As Arena Digest points out, the first big media event that Peter Guber and Joseph Lacob held was in a San Francisco…

  23. Maybe it’s a little too early to freak out about a lockout

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:33 PM EST

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    Welcome to the world of my contradictions. Put up your feet, make yourself at home. On one hand, I am fully convinced there will be an NBA lockout come next July 1. Talk to both sides informally and that feels like the only possible outcome. But I think that Darren Rovell at CNBC is right…

  24. John Wall game-time decision to get back on court tonight

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:05 PM EST

    Wall_dunk

    UPDATE 6:06 pm: In his pregame comments, Wizards coach Flip Saunders said that Wall would be a game-time decision, to be made after he warmed up. If Wall does play, he will come off the bench, Saunders said. 11: 28 am: For the last week, John Wall has ceded the “ridiculous rookie highlight of the…

  25. Vince Carter’s MRI negative, game time decision Wednesday against Heat

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:00 PM EST

    Vince Carter, Josh Childress, Garret Siler, Jared Dudley

    It didn’t look good when it happened. It didn’t sound good when Vince Carter described it as a “sharp pain” in his knee. But it turned out to be not that bad — an MRI of Vince Carter’s knee showed no structural damage and he is will be a game-time decision in Wednesday’s showdown with…
