  1. Knicks put it together against Nuggets… and then go back to Melo-ball

    Jan 22, 2012, 12:11 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    It makes sense, on one level. You play good team ball for 45 minutes. You create open looks, you drive to the rim, you produce opportunities to get you into a tight game. And then, when it comes down to clutch time, you let your star scorer score. That makes a lot of sense and…

So with that in mind, we bring you these selected highlights from Utah’s close loss…

    George Hill, Darren Collison

    Kevin Love‘s big shot to beat the Clippers may have been the big story in the NBA on Friday, but there was another play near the end of regulation in the game between the Pacers and the Warriors that was just as exciting. Only with that one, the NBA admits the officials made a horrible…

  6. The Knicks, Carmelo, D’Antoni, and being set up for success vs. failure

    Jan 21, 2012, 4:23 PM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    It’s panic time in New York. Not across the board, mind you. There are always those that seek calmer seas, that urge for patience, that understand that all teams go through winning and losing streaks, and just because times are rough it does not mean you throw out the mustached baby with the What-Toney-Dougalas-Do bathwater.…

  7. Hornets closing in on Eric Gordon extension?

    Jan 21, 2012, 2:55 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    When the Hornets traded Chris Paul for multiple players including Eric Gordon, there was a concern that due to their rebuilding process, Gordon may not be willing to spend his years in the Big Easy wasting away through a lottery reconstruction. Gordon is entering restricted free agency, after all, and a signing of the qualifying…

  8. Weekend Observations 1.21.12: Dead legs and the dirty ground

    Jan 21, 2012, 1:18 PM EST

    Ricky Rubio

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. The Lakers use the pick and roll a lot but what winds up happening is it just resets the offense on the weak side. It doesn’t result in shots or quick passes. It’s like spending 10 hours cooking a hamburger.…

  9. Paul Pierce “can’t pay attention” to trade rumors

    Jan 21, 2012, 11:31 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    Steve Nash and what is left of the once-feared Phoenix Suns came into the Gah-den and beat the Boston Celtics Friday night. That would be six losses in the last seven games, and like Friday some are coming to below .500 teams. That is some more fuel on the growing “blow up the Celtics” fire.…

    The New York Knicks have been dealing with quite a few issues this season, some of which are related to injury, but it was succinctly summed up on Friday night when Knicks blog Posting and Toasting wrote that they would “rather eat a cactus than watch these Knicks.” If fans aren’t quite ready to start…

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love was the happiest man in the building. (His agent, Dan Fegan, who is trying to get him a contract extension and was in the building, may have been second). How did this play go down? We present to you a quote from each of the coaches, then we will let you draw your…

  12. Ricky Rubio’s game translates to NBA just fine thank you

    Jan 21, 2012, 3:06 AM EST

    Ricky Rubio

    For the first three quarters Friday night, the Ricky Rubio doubters out there — those that said his game would never translate to the NBA —  had their chance to crow. “He can’t shoot” and he was 0-10 from the floor. “He can’t defend” and Mo Williams was tearing him apart (along with everyone else…

    Jan 20, 2012, 6:50 PM EST

    Dwight Howard Shaquille O'Neal

    Shaquille O’Neal loves to needle Dwight Howard. Why? Mostly because he’s Shaq, but there is that whole silly “Superman” thing (Shaq’s nickname but a persona Howard used to win the dunk contest in 2008). Now, Shaq’s got a big megaphone on TNT’s Inside the NBA. National broadcast where he can and did say Andrew Bynum…

    Spike Lee, Barack Obama, Air Jorans

    Among the perks of being president — sweet new free Air Jordans. That and a full-time chef at your disposal so if you want a pastrami sandwich at 4 a.m. you get it. Famous director Spike Lee was at the White House recently and tweeted the picture to the right where he gave Barack Obama…

    Jan 20, 2012, 4:41 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    The conventional wisdom has been that if the Nets could not land another star to join Deron Williams in New Jersey this season or Brooklyn next season, he would opt out this summer — crushing the Nets franchise that gave up a lot to get him — and heading to his hometown of Dallas next…

  19. Report: Magic may keep Howard, try to land Steve Nash

    Jan 20, 2012, 4:19 PM EST

    Steve Nash

    More and more, it feels like the Orlando Magic may not trade Dwight Howard — despite Howard’s trade request still being on the table — do what they can to keep him and roll the dice that he doesn’t opt out of his contract and walk away leaving them nothing this summer. How do they…

    Jan 20, 2012, 3:15 PM EST

    LeBron James

    One of the cool things about being Jeffrey Loria, the owner of the Florida Marlins (plus being insanely rich), is if you want courtside seats to the Lakers vs. Heat you can get them. And you can have LeBron James almost run over you. The impressive part really is that LeBron catches him and pulls…
