  1. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 18, 2010, 2:48 AM EDT

    What happened Wednesday, while you were asking “What’s That Song?“… Bobcats 100 Thunder 92: Raymond Felton is probably better than you think he is. He’s been a huge part of the Bobcats’ success this year, and his ability to create chaos in the offensive set now that teams can’t collapse because of Stephen Jackson is…

  2. Rajon Rondo is not lacking for confidence

    Mar 17, 2010, 9:37 PM EDT

    There’s a fine line between the confidence you need to carry yourself with in order to achieve greatness, and a hubris that belies an arrogance that will get you bit in the ass. Rajon Rondo is taking a whiz all over that line. In an interview with HoopsTV, Rondo had some things to say about…

  3. Raptors might be one of worst defenses in playoff history

    Mar 17, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    The Toronto Raptors give up 105 points a game. That’s kind of a lot. But hey, no big deal, teams are giving up 100 on average this season anyway! And besides, there are a ton of teams that have given up 105 points a game and made the playoffs. So you know, there’s not much…

  4. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 15, 2010, 1:10 AM EDT

    What happened to Sunday while you were filling out your brackets completely for fun with absolutely no wagers involved… Cavs 104 Celtics 93: We already told you about the Celtics getting run around a bit, but I wanted to follow up with Antawn Jamison. Jamison finished with 15 points on 6 of 17 shooting which…

  5. The Don Nelson Firing Manifesto

    Mar 14, 2010, 11:11 PM EDT

    Tim Kawakami has laid out the entire thing. Ten reasons one by one, to ditch the Don. It is a hit job glazed in dynamite. This isn’t a criticism, Nelson’s been calling for it. The reasons are detailed but succinct. But if you want the biggest reason Nelson needs to go, it’s outlined in #2.…

  6. No getting around it: Celtics outclassed by Cavs again

    Mar 14, 2010, 8:05 PM EDT

    Well, that did not go well for Boston. The Celtics were outclassed again in Cleveland. They actually managed to tie the game with 5:00 to go in the third. Then the Cavs just… outclassed them. Outran, outworked, out-gunned, out-manned them. It’s not that everything fell apart for the Celtics or that the effort wasn’t there.…

  7. 'Winning Time' doc on Pacers-Knicks premieres tonight

    Mar 14, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    If you have not heard about the “Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. the New York Knicks” documentary for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series, um, where you been? The documentary screened at Sundance to widespread acclaim and the celebrations have been the same since. They showed it at Conseco Fieldhouse and the fans were giddy. They…

  8. Nets don't want your sympathy

    Mar 14, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    Rob Peterson at FanHouse has been following the worst team in the league as they seek to avoid being the worst team in history. Today he checks in with a piece on the general attitude of the Nets. The summary? The Nets don’t want you to pity them. Empathize, understand, but they are not feeling…

  9. Chris Bosh is not a happy dude

    Mar 14, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    The Raptors lost to the Warriors last night, and are now just 2-8 in their last 10. They’ve been a bad defensive team all season, but last night really showed the totality of their futility lately. They’re playing like the incomplete, mediocre team they were early in the season, rather than the red-hot team that…

  10. Sean Marks done for the season

    Mar 14, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    Like the Hornets needed more injuries. The Hornets’ back-up big man Sean Marks will have surgery Tuesday on a bum shoulder and miss the rest of the season. While Marks isn’t a pivotal cog or anything, it’s still an impact on the Hornets’ depth, which is near-non-existent as is. The Hornets aren’t the most injury-plagued…

  11. Celtics make themselves feel better by laughing at Lakers

    Mar 14, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    The Celtics have not had a smashing month. They’ve bullied, beaten, out-ran and bludgeoned. They’ve seemed lifeless, shiftless, bored, and anything but a title contender. They lost to the Nets, for crying out loud. Wednesday, the Memphis Grizzlies, who haven’t been playing great lately, absolutely blasted the Celtics like they were a D-League squad. So…

  12. Bobcats dodge bullet, Wallace MRI negative

    Mar 14, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace rolled his ankle pretty badly on Friday night, and it was still pretty swollen the next day, prompting an MRI. You could literally hear the Bobcats’ breath collectively inhaling like an industrial strength vacuum. A long-term injury to the ‘Cats All-Star would sink their chances for not only doing anything of note in…

  13. If Gay is the big prize this summer for Knicks, something went horribly wrong

    Mar 14, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    The New York Post continued its crusade Saturday to convince its readers that anyone, anyone, anyone would be willing to play in New York next year because, well, it’s a really big city and MSG is cool and um, NEW YORK! The latest was after the Grizzlies worked over the Knicks completely Friday night. The…

  14. Money isn't everything, but it better be for Granger

    Mar 14, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    Danny Granger signed a massive extension before last season. He hadn’t been to the playoffs, but the Pacers had drafted well, had a good core in place, and it was, you know, a ton of money. An epic load of money. And that money? Still good. Still buying batcaves. But the rest of the team…

  15. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 14, 2010, 3:16 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were watching Pacquiao do work… Magic 109 Wizards 95: So it wasn’t the epic beatdown we were fearful of, which is a good thing. Washington actually led after the first, but then the fact that it was their third game in three nights caught up with them. Either that or…

  16. Hinrich suspended one game for bumping ref

    Mar 13, 2010, 10:21 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich blew his lid in the Bulls’ loss to Miami last night, and he’ll be losing some time and money over it. The league suspended Hinrich today for one game after he bumped an official while protesting a call late in the game. So assuming Derrick Rose’s wrist doesn’t magically heal itself to playing…

  17. Aminu, Favors headline top propsects outside of the dance

    Mar 13, 2010, 9:48 PM EDT

    Yahoo!’s Marc Spears has an interesting draft article up tonight outlining the players who won’t be in the NCAA Tournament, most likely. These NITers include Al Farouq Aminu of Wake Forest, and Derrick Favors of Georgia Tech. Georgia Tech faces Duke tomorrow in the ACC Final, so they’re still breathing. Wake Forest is on life…

  18. Eddie Jordan says he hasn't lost the squad

    Mar 13, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    Everyone thinks Eddie Jordan is fired. Fans. Media. Management around the league. I’d bet a few of his own players. Everyone, that is, except Eddie Jordan. Jordan refuted the rumors of his demise to writers from Delaware Online: I don’t know where that [rumor] comes from. [The media] just puts it out there: ‘The team’s…

  19. George Karl's treatment proceeding, will miss three more games

    Mar 13, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    The reality of George Karl’s condition and treatment is harsh and unpleasant. Such is the case with cancer, which you likely know as cancer has touched almost all of us in one way or another. The NBA has released a statement informing us that Karl will miss the Nuggets’ next three games, adjusting to a…

  20. Hawks campaigning for Crawford, Smith

    Mar 13, 2010, 12:26 PM EDT

    The Hawks are enjoying a phenomenal season, one which has seen significant strides for the team as a whole, and for their players as individuals. Josh Smith has stopped taking jumpers, gone inside, and most importantly brought his athleticism and energy to form a complete defensive game. He’s not leading the league in rebounds or…

  21. Bobcats sign Larry Hughes

    Mar 13, 2010, 11:13 AM EDT

    Larry Hughes will be in the playoffs. Let your brain get around that, quick. Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer is reporting that the Bobcats have signed Hughes for the remainder of the season. Bonnell states that he’s been signed to pick up the slack after the departure of Flip Murray, but you have to…

  22. Wizards are facing a beatdown of epic proportions

    Mar 13, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    I think we can all agree that the Wizards are having one of the toughest seasons in NBA history. There’s not much more that could go wrong for them. And tonight, the deck’s stacked against them once again. The Wizards had a game with the Hawks postponed during that big snowstorm a few months back.…

  23. Chris Paul could return in a week or so

    Mar 13, 2010, 9:26 AM EDT

    The Hornets have bravely been carrying on the fight for a playoff birth without Chris Paul. Paul had knee surgery on February 4th, and since then it has been the Darren Collison show. Collison’ done a fantastic job in his stead, racking up points and assists. But there’s still some level of leadership missing that…

  24. Heat officially suspend Rafer Alston for remainder of season

    Mar 13, 2010, 1:00 AM EDT

    Rafer Alson is going through a personal problem involving his twin sister. He was focused on being there for her. Unfortunately, he failed to contact the Heat upon his departure from the team, leading to an indefinite suspension. Once media reports surfaced regarding the nature of his leave of absence, Rafer spoke to the media…

  25. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 13, 2010, 12:06 AM EDT

    What happened Friday while you were installing  your cat elevator… Bucks 95 Jazz 87: Terrific game start to finish. Milwaukee crowd (one of the best in the league) was into it, players were buckled in, tight finish. Brandon Jennings was terrific for three quarters, then got a little too into it. He first had a…
