  1. Baseline to Baseline, where Portland persevered

    Apr 12, 2010, 12:20 AM EDT

    What happened Sunday night while you were formulating Tiger Woods jokes… Blazers 91 Lakers 88: That was messed up. Seriously. Just messed up. The final two minutes of this game saw the Blazers with a five point lead only to see Derek Fisher get away with murder on an illegal moving screen as Kobe Bryant…

  2. Bulls move into tie for 8th seed in stampede over Raptors

    Apr 11, 2010, 5:53 PM EDT

    Wow, the Toronto Raptors fans really showed up today. Too bad their team didn’t. The Bulls crushed the Raptors in Toronto today to claim sole possession of the 8th playoff seed in the East, 104-88. If ever there was a game that showcased the weakness of the Raptors and the relative strength of the Bulls,…

  3. Spurs' Richard Jefferson thinking about opting out

    Apr 11, 2010, 3:56 PM EDT

    NBA FanHouse spoke with Richard Jefferson last night and the aging versatile forward who has struggled this season is considering opting out of the last year of his deal and joining the free agent frenzy of 2010. That sound you’re hearing is that of Spurs fans roaring in excitement. Jefferson claims that he’s willing to…

  4. Nets sale could be submarined by previous dealings in Zimbabwe

    Apr 11, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Everything was going so well. They avoided the worst record in league history. They have all the cap space in the world. Nearly all the obstructions to the start of construction on their new arena in Brooklyn have been cleared. And the new owner seems like a billionaire playboy featured on 60 Minutes. Things were…

  5. What can Cleveland prove today?

    Apr 11, 2010, 12:10 PM EDT

    Well, we assume LeBron James won’t be playing today when the Cavs meet the Magic. (But we’ll keep you updated.) And we know that the Magic will be at full strength. So when the Cavs and Magic meet up for a little pre-playoff staredown, what are we going to see? Okay, so you know how…

  6. Things are not peachy in Bulls land

    Apr 11, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    ESPN Chicago is reporting that there was some miscommunication between Bulls front office and Vinny Del Negro in the Bulls loss to the Nets on Friday. Essentially, there had been a decision to not play Joakim Noah more than 35 minutes. Noah hit that limit, and so Vinny Del Negro pulled him. Then apparently player…

  7. Baseline to Baseline, where Kenyon Martin was not the difference

    Apr 11, 2010, 9:10 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were mourning the Arrested Development movie… Spurs 104 Nuggets 85: Kenyon Martin’s back! Kenyon Martin’s back! Oh… that didn’t go quite how we planned. The biggest way the Spurs have improved lately is that they’re catching teams off guard, finally. Those little cuts that seem to come out of nowhere,…

  8. Spurs counted on a Grizzlies win; welcome to a new reality, Manu

    Apr 10, 2010, 7:32 PM EDT

    The Spurs were outworked, out-manned and outdone last night, falling to the Grizzlies. And after such a terrific win against the Lakers last weekend, the Spurs have now lost two in a row and face the Nuggets tonight in what may be a vital game for avoiding the Lakers in the first round, which we’ve…

  9. Rockets GM says Luis Scola isn't going anywhere

    Apr 10, 2010, 5:13 PM EDT

    There’s a buffet of free agents this summer. A smorgasbord. A plethora. A myriad. There’s quite simply a free agent for anything you need. They slice! They dice! They make french fries, too! But if you were hoping your team might make a swing at Rockets forward Luis Scola, you can kill those dreams, put…

  10. Report: Eddie Jordan interested in Rutgers job

    Apr 10, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! is reporting via Twitter that Eddie Jordan has ‘significant interest’ in the vacant Rutgers University head coaching job and may interview for it at the end of the season. Woj goes on to say that Jordan will have ample time to prepare for an interview as he will be let go…

  11. With NBA Playoffs looming, Portland should have kept their heads

    Apr 10, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Portland, Oregon may not be a big fancy city, but one thing it does have is incredible basketball fans. Smart, passionate, devoted NBA basketball fans. The collective IQ at a Blazers game is probably higher than the average. But last night it plummeted to Neanderthal levels, and it’s got nothing to do with getting mad…

  12. Don Nelson is the all-time winningest coach in NBA history

    Apr 7, 2010, 10:58 PM EDT

    You know, the script says I’m supposed to drop some sort of snarky reference to the lack of defense of the Golden State Warriors, and really any team in Don Nelson’s past. The script says I should make a crack about the Timberwolves (and trust me, I want to, it’s easy, and fun!). But the…

  13. Thunder-Jazz have an instant classic marred by a traveshamockery

    Apr 7, 2010, 12:52 AM EDT

    It had everything. Everything except the ending. The Jazz and Thunder played an overtime thriller Tuesday night, featuring an epic collapse by the Jazz, scintillating performances by Kevin Durant and Deron Williams, huge defensive plays, and in the end… A no-call decided it. It was a back and forth game for four quarters, but a…

  14. Baseline to Baseline, where the ghost of Ray Allen rode again

    Apr 5, 2010, 1:07 AM EDT

    What happened Sunday while you were singing ‘Sweet Caroline‘… Celtics 117 Cavs 113: The Celtics’ offense in the first three quarters… wow! Rotation, penetration, and Ray Allen was in classic form. Their defense, doing what it’s supposed to, closing off angles and forcing the Cavs into a jump shooting team. Tremendous effort. For three quarters.…

  15. Don Nelson ties all-time coaching wins record

    Apr 4, 2010, 8:50 PM EDT

    Well, the old lunatic finally got there. With the Warriors’ 113-112 win over the Raptors (thanks, Chris Bosh!), Nelson tied Lenny Wilkens for most wins by an NBA coach with 1,332. That’s a lot of wins. For his part, Nelson’s mostly spoken about wanting to get the record over with, so there won’t be so…

  16. We say again, San Antonio should aim for LA in 1st round

    Apr 4, 2010, 6:58 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich said before Sunday’s game with the Lakers that every Western Conference team is trying to avoid the Lakers in round one. Via ESPN: “The ones that say, ‘We don’t care who we play,’ they’re full of baloney,” Popovich said. “We’re all trying to hide from the Lakers in the first round and that’s…

  17. What does an Amar'e Nets team look like? Scary.

    Apr 4, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    The Newark Star Ledger spoke with Amar’e Stoudemire after the Nets-Suns game last week and asked him about playing in New Jersey. With the Nets. Who just recently avoided being the worst team in the history of professional basketball, record wise (though we’ve told you they’re not that bad). So surely Amar’e is going to…

  18. Cavs-Celtics IV: What's left to say?

    Apr 4, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The Cavaliers and Celtics meet for the fourth time tomorrow, but you have to ask yourself if this meeting can tell us much. Usually when two title contenders meet in April, there’s high drama and questions to be answered. But given what we’ve seen this season, the result would have to be extreme to bear…

  19. Andrew Bynum not exactly burning up the comeback trail

    Apr 4, 2010, 12:07 PM EDT

    You’ll remember when the MRI confirmed an Achilles strain for Andrew Bynum that the original diagnosis was two weeks for his return. Two weeks was yesterday. So reporters checked in with his doctor regarding his progress. The progress? Bynum’s not even cleared for running or jumping. Oh. The playoffs are around the corner. But this…

  20. Da'Sean Butler tears ACL, another pick might plummet

    Apr 4, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    West Virginia star forward Da’Sean Butler tore his ACL during West Virginia’s loss to Duke in the Final Four. That’s typically a bad thing for your draft prospects. It seems there’s going to be a litany of picks coming off injuries during the draft, which could make it difficult for teams to get a read…

  21. Baseline to Baseline, where the Johan Petro was relevant

    Apr 4, 2010, 8:11 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were dying Easter eggs… Raptors 128 Sixers 123: Antoine Wright can be a difference maker if put in the position. He hauled in a hayuuuuge offensive rebound which sealed the game for Toronto. Say what you want about Andrea Bargnani, and Raptor fans will, but if they’re going to play…

  22. Joey Dorsey signs with Toronto Raptors

    Apr 3, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Woj over at Yahoo reports via Twitter the Toronto Raptors plan to sign former King and Rocket Joey Dorsey this afternoon, after the Kings released Dorsey due to attitude problems. The former Memphis Tiger spent a year and a half in the D-League developing in the Rockets’ system, improving considerably, before being called up and…

  23. Union has begun planning with players for lockout contingencies

    Apr 3, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plains Dealer has a report this morning that Players Union Executive Director Billy Hunter was in Cleveland this week, meeting with players to advise players to begin planning in the event of a lockout. Hunter advised the players to begin stashing away cash, and scrimping on some of the more…

  24. The Hawks may have found their concrete ceiling

    Apr 3, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    It was all going so well. The Hawks had swept the Celtics in convincing fashion this year, beating them just about every way you can (at home, on the road, in box, with Jamal Crawford being a pox). They had managed to deliver a late season win over Orlando, at least providing some measure of…

  25. Does Kobe's extension really extend the Lakers' title window?

    Apr 3, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Re-signing Kobe Bryant was a major objective for the Lakers this year, even if it was largely a formality, given Kobe’s stated desire to remain in LA and the fact that, let’s face it, there’s nowhere better for a basketball player to be. The weather, the celebrities, the night life, and an organization that will…
