  1. Celtics-Heat Game 4: Chris Bosh still out

    Jun 3, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    Same story, different day. Chris Bosh will not be riding to the rescue of the Miami Heat as they try and put the chokehold on the Celtics in Game 4 in Boston.ESPN reports: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Saturday that Bosh won’t play Sunday and reiterated the All-Star forward has not yet advanced far enough…

  2. Quote of the Day: Pop was there, he saw it.

    Jun 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Thunder, Spurs, Tim Dunan

    Reporter: “It seemed like [Durant] took over.” Popovich: “It didn’t ‘seem’ like that. That was a fact. I was there. I saw it. He was great.” — Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) June 3, 2012 And that’s why Pop’s the best. Durant’s performance in Game 4 was not the first dominant performance Popovich has seen in the…

  3. Spurs need Duncan to step up if they want to reach the Finals

    Jun 3, 2012, 12:41 AM EDT

    timmy-game-4

    Tim Duncan‘s legacy is largely beyond reproach. The man has four NBA titles to his name, is one of the two greatest players of his generation, and just recently became the all-time playoff leader in blocked shots. And yet, his play in the Western Conference Finals hasn’t been all that special. Duncan will get a…

  4. Thunder even Western Conference finals with Game 4 win over Spurs

    Jun 2, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    ibaka-game-4

    The reason that home-court advantage makes a difference in the NBA postseason is because of the fact that the role-players, bench guys, or simply lesser-known producers tend to play above their average capabilities with the home crowd behind them. That was certainly the case in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals in Oklahoma City, where the…

  5. Report: Suns to pursue Deron Williams. What, is Magic Johnson unavailable?

    Jun 2, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    The New York Daily News reports that if Steve Nash leaves the Suns in free agency, the Suns will make a bid for Deron Williams. “If they lose Steve, then they plan to go after Deron, hard,” said a person with knowledge of the Suns’ plans. “They know he loves golf and they’re going to…

  7. Celtics-Heat Game 4: Celtics can survive a LeBron onslaught, can Heat survive another Rondomination?

    Jun 2, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Here’s the secret to this series, and the Celtics’ postseason in general. Kevin Garnett getting points off the pick and pop and in the post over Ronny Turiaf and yelling and barking and cursing is nice. Paul Pierce getting an inefficient number of points per FGA is fine. Ray Allen hitting some in-between freezeouts is…

  8. LaMarcus Aldridge was hospitalized with deadly blood virus

    Jun 2, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    This is scary. As Kevin Garnett would say, “really [expletive] scary.” Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge found himself in the hospital this week with a potentially deadly blood virus. He wrote about it in his blog on trailblazers.com (hat tip to Blazers Edge). On Saturday I came down with a blood virus. I quickly…

  9. Report: Warriors targeting Iguodala, Gay, Granger, unicorns, hippogriffs

    Jun 2, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Warriors logo

    The Warriors at this point might as well put up a big neon sign outside their offices that read “TRADE MARKET FLEA SALE TODAY!” Ever since they went into tank mode, they have made it known that their players are available for trade and that they want a small forward in return. And by landing…

  10. The New Orleans Hornets and a matter of serendipity, not conspiracy

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dell Demps

    Maybe they’re right. Maybe the league, in the face of unfathomable depths of reason to avoid the concept like the plague (which I have outlined here), really did rig the 2012 NBA Lottery in order to help the Hornets after a rough year, or dot the i’s on the sale of the team to Tom…

  11. Thunder-Spurs Game 4: Let’s get serious

    Jun 2, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Kendrick Perkins

    Seriously, this is the most serious of seriousness. This is the business. This game is monstrous. All those games before that were big? No, this one is big. BIG. Like, those commercials big. Thunder-Spurs Game 4 is going to have dramatic ramifications either way. If the Spurs win, the Thunder’s Game 3 win is meaningless…

  12. Kevin Garnett was explicitly pleased with the fans in Game 3

    Jun 2, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Boston crowd is renown as one of the best in the league. And despite some late arrivals in Game 3, the atmosphere was electric and helped carry the Celtics to a win and a slice off the Heat’s series lead. Garnett was always meant to play in front of fans like this, in arenas…

  13. Video: Kevin Garnett’s “Army/Navy style” knuckle pushups

    Jun 2, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    I’m not sure that pushup form would have been approved my Mr. Loveless, my freshman PE teacher, but it worked for Kevin Garnett. And the Celtics players and fans ate it up. KG brought real energy in the paint, he brought the early post position (and great finishes off impressive passes from Rajon Rondo when…

  14. Miami flips the switch to off for Game 3, can they turn it back on?

    Jun 2, 2012, 2:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Let’s give all due credit to the Boston Celtics — staring in the face of a must win night they brought it like you expect of a veteran, battle-tested team. Kevin Garnett was fantastic in the paint, Rajon Rondo controlled the flow. Their defensive intensity was stepped up. Boston won 101-91. But this was another…

  15. Rondo gets some help, LeBron doesn’t so Celtics win Game 3

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:23 AM EDT

    Heat Celtics Basketball

    Rajon Rondo didn’t put up 44 points in Game 3 because he didn’t have to — he had help this time. But if the Heat were going to win Friday night LeBron James would have needed to put up huge numbers because his teammates didn’t bother to show up until the fourth quarter. The result…

  16. Clippers reach “agreement in principle” to keep GM Olshey

    Jun 1, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    Every time there has been a general manager vacancy lately, it seems Clippers’ Neil Olshey’s name has come up. With good reason. Not only did he stick with it and pull off the trade for Chris Paul, before that he had taken steps to change the culture in the Clippers locker room and build around…

  17. Tim Duncan is your NBA Playoffs all time blocks leader

    Jun 1, 2012, 8:15 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

    There were not a lot of highlights for the Spurs in Game 3 against Thunder, it was a rout. However, at one point Tim Duncan passed Kareem Abdul-Jabar for most blocks ever in the playoffs. It’s an impressive accomplishment — 477 blocks in the playoffs alone. It’s something KAJ congratulated Duncan for on twitter the…

  18. Is this Kevin Garnett’s last season? Ever?

    Jun 1, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Two

    For the past four regular seasons, Kevin Garnett has been the same — good, maybe All-Star good. His offense is solid and he is still the anchor of the Boston defense. These playoffs have been no different and he has played well, stepping up his game at points the Celtics have needed it. Is Garnett…

  19. Report: Randy Wittman near two-year deal to coach Wizards

    Jun 1, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    We’ve been telling you that it looked like the Wizards were leaning toward keeping Randy Wittman as coach. Now Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo came through with a few details. The Washington Wizards are finalizing details on a two-year contract for interim coach Randy Wittman to become head coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. An announcement…
