    Mar 25, 2011, 3:05 PM EDT

    Sundiata Gaines Nets

    Just last week, the Nets signed Sundiata Gaines through the remainder of this season and into the next one (whenever that is). Now Gaines is out for the rest of the season with a fractured hip, the team reported on twitter. Gaines will be on crutches for six-to-eight weeks and then begin rehab. Gaines jammed…

    The Honda Center in Anaheim is 34 miles away from Staples Center, which means it may take 30 minutes and it may take two-and-a-half hours to drive there on Los Angeles freeways. But it’s close enough that the Lakers and Clippers do not want the Kings moving to Anaheim. It just appears they can’t do…

  3. Derrick Rose, Pau Gasol lead NBA fundraising effort for Japan

    Mar 25, 2011, 2:12 PM EDT

    Rescue Work Continues in Japan As Nuclear Threat Looms

    Every time Derrick Rose scores this weekend, the people of Japan win. A little. Rose leads a number of NBA stars who will be donating $1,000 for every point scored to Direct Relief’s Japan Relief and Recovery Fund. That is money that goes to support the immediate health needs of people devastated by the earthquake…

  4. Spurs sign Da’Sean Butler for remainder of season

    Mar 25, 2011, 1:34 PM EDT

    West Virginia v Kentucky

    The Spurs have decided to take a smart, calculated risk on Da’Sean Butler, and have signed the free agent forward, reports Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy on twitter. Just a year ago Butler was leading West Virginia into the NCAA Final Four — where he blew out his ACL against Duke. Teams are leery of guys coming…

  5. With West out Hornets likely still make playoffs, just exit early

    Mar 25, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    David West

    We’re still waiting for the official diagnosis of David West, but if you’ve seen the video of his injury — if you heard his screams of pain on the game broadcast — you would realize it is not going to be good. He has a long rehab ahead of him, and some serious decisions to…

  6. It’s now or never for Bucks playoff push

    Mar 25, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    Has any team been more disappointing this season than the Milwaukee Bucks? Injuries and their anemic offense — despite having Brandon Jennings, John Salmons and Andrew Bogut — have held them back. All the way back out of the playoffs. The Bucks are three games behind the Pacers with a dozen to play. And the…

  7. Bobcats may shut Stephen Jackson down for season

    Mar 25, 2011, 11:13 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Charlotte Bobcats are the 10 seed in the East as you read this, three games back of the 8 seed Pacers with a dozen games to play. So, not impossible to make up. It’s also not impossible you are going to win the Mega Millions lottery. Doesn’t mean you should start spending the money.…

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Here are some details on the latest effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento. They’re trying, but let’s understand this is a longshot. At best. Steve Francis’ agent has pled guilty to tax evasion and a series of other crimes and is looking at a decade behind bars. LeBron James has Kemba Walker’s back. Another…

  9. NCAA Sweet 16 and the NBA Draft: Kyrie Irving still the man

    Mar 25, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    No scout, no NBA team is taking what they see in the NCAA Tournament as the whole picture of an NBA prospect. They’ve been following these players all season, they have a pretty complete picture before the tournament tips off. But the tournament brings more intense competition against better opponents, and that’s always a good…

  10. Rambis says Kevin Love could be out rest of season

    Mar 25, 2011, 9:08 AM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    The groin injury that kept Kevin Love out Thursday night in Dallas may have him in street clothes the rest of the season. Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis told the Associated Press before the Wolves game it is possible Love is done for the year, though not likely. “There is an outside chance, I don’t know…

  11. Video: Emeka Okafor, Paul Millsap get prayers answered

    Mar 25, 2011, 8:32 AM EDT

    Emeka Okafor Hornets

    We told you it was one wild ending in Utah with the Hornets. So much that we couldn’t contain it in just one video clip… okay, that’s not true. But it was cut in two by the people at the NBA so that’s how we give it to you. First is Emeka Okafor‘s rushed 17-foot…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas has 50 wins in a season. Again.

    Mar 25, 2011, 8:17 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry

    What you missed while developing a remote control floating cloud to hoover over soccer stadiums…. Mavericks 104, Timberwolves 96: No Kevin Love tonight for Minnesota so on paper this this looked like it a blowout… but nobody counted on good Anthony Randolph showing up. Much like the Spanish Inquisition, nobody expects the good Anthony Randolph.…

  13. Hornets’ David West injures knee, leaves game in wheelchair

    Mar 25, 2011, 12:34 AM EDT

    David_west

    UPDATE March 25, 12:34 am: The Hornets are officially calling this “left knee trauma” (which is a pretty scary term) but said in a release that the X-rays are negative. He will have an MRI before the team discusses the severity of the injury. Al Jefferson of the Jazz said he hopes he is wrong but…

  14. Knicks’ tired legs leading to fourth-quarter collapses

    Mar 24, 2011, 9:52 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    It happened again Wednesday night — the Knicks had seized a lead with a 15-6 run just before halftime then solidified it with a 7-0 spurt early in the third quarter. They had a shot at a big win over Orlando. Then it fell apart, as it has so often lately for the Knicks. The Magic were…

  15. Ron Artest’s “Go Loco.” The video. Not him actually going crazy

    Mar 24, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    So you didn’t get around to picking up that mix tape Ron Artest dropped All-Star weekend yet. And you don’t watch George Lopez because, well, he’s not really funny. So you probably haven’t seen a live performance of Artest’s single “Go Loco” complete with Lopez singing. That’s why we’re here, to make sure you don’t…

  16. Tyreke Evans probable for Friday’s game

    Mar 24, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, Sacramento Kings guard Tyreke Evans is “probable” for Friday’s game against the Indiana Pacers. Evans has struggled with injuries all season long, and has missed the last 19 games due to plantar faciitis. The Kings have gone 5-14 in the 19 games that Evans has missed, and…

  17. Video: Bucks’ Brockman knows how trick shots are done

    Mar 24, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    Jon Brockman

    Jon Brockman is more than just the best big man to come out of the University of Washington since Spencer Hawes. No, he is a well-rounded human being basketball player. Complete with a repertoire of trick shots and a catchphrase — “that’s how it’s done.” Pretty soon that will be sweeping the nation and we’ll…

  18. Report: Shaq to return to Celtics by April 1. No fooling.

    shaq-return-april-1

    Boston just needs to get everyone back and healthy for the playoffs, then everything will be just fine. That’s the mantra, so say it with me. Everyone back and healthy for the playoffs. But they could use to get their big men back a little before that. Just to remember what everybody looks like, work…

  19. Heat’s Spoelstra regrets saying players were crying

    Mar 24, 2011, 3:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    In a sign that Heat coach Erik Spoelstra is still has a ways to go in being media savvy, he didn’t regret saying that there were players in tears in the locker room after a loss to Chicago the second he said it. But he has come to regret saying it. Spoelstra was on the…

    Jerry West is trying to talk some sense into New Yorkers. Good luck with that. The Logo spoke with the Associated Press and said what Knicks management and everyone on that end of the Carmelo Anthony trade has said — this is going to take time. To expect immediate results was a mistake, the trade…
