  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Chicago’s offense is as awesome as the Kings defense is horrid

    Mar 22, 2011, 7:40 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Keith Bogans

    What you missed while getting busted for polygamy due to Facebook (damn you Zuckerberg)…. The Celtics beating up and coming from behind to beat the Knicks is our game of the night. Bulls 132, Kings 92: For a night, there were no questions about the Bulls offense. For a night it was an unstoppable force,…

  2. Knicks’ slide continues as Celtics come from 15 down to win

    Mar 22, 2011, 12:18 AM EDT

    pierce-celtics-knicks

    Because there might be a little rivalry between the two cities when it comes to sports, we’re rooting for — and could see — a New York/Boston first-round matchup. Boston is deadlocked with Chicago for first, and New York is comfortably in the seventh spot, with no reason to believe that the team will be…

  3. Duncan leaves game with an ankle injury, out 2 weeks

    Mar 21, 2011, 10:29 PM EDT

    tim-duncan-ankle-injury

    The Spurs have the best record in the league by six and a half games over anyone else, and being fortunate enough to have a healthy roster for the majority of the season is a big reason why. Monday night against the Warriors, however, that all changed, as the team finally suffered an injury to…

  4. Jordan Crawford can do more than just dunk on LeBron

    Mar 21, 2011, 10:07 PM EDT

    Jordan Crawford Wizards

    You remember Jordan Crawford? He’s the Xavier college player that dunked on LeBron James in a pickup game after LeBron’s skills camp back in the summer of 2009. Which would have been no big deal — LeBron tried to rotate over on defense and was a little late in a pickup game, it happens —…

  5. Quote of the Day: Kobe loves Fisher, taking shots at Smush

    Mar 21, 2011, 8:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    “You mean when I was throwing to Smush? I shot w/ three mother **** on me. That’s the difference. Now I only shoot w/ one, maybe two.” —Kobe Bryant, on whether he missed Derek Fisher when he left the Lakers in 2004 (via the LA Times Mark Medina on twitter. Fisher stepped up and hit the…

  6. Winderman: Still time to add good player (or Eddy Curry) to playoff roster

    Mar 21, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    ecurry_beard

    Yes, there still is time. With all of its deadlines, be it the mid-February trading deadline or the March 1 buyout deadline, the NBA is surprisingly lax when it comes to its playoff-roster deadline. Spend at least one game on the roster prior to the postseason and you’re playoff eligible, provided you were not on…

  7. LeBron’s Q score is better, but still not very good

    Mar 21, 2011, 6:24 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    According to Darren Rovell of CNBC.com, LeBron James’ Q score is higher than it was shortly after the infamous “decision,” but it still isn’t anything to write home about: A poll of the general population [last September] by The Q Scores Company revealed that only 14 percent of people thought of James positively, while 39…

  8. Hunter, Stern prepare for a CBA battle

    Mar 21, 2011, 5:47 PM EDT

    David Stern

    Everybody knows that things are going to get ugly when the NBA owners and the Player’s union will try to hammer out a new collective bargaining agreement this summer. In fact, Adrian Wojarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that things already got pretty chippy between union head Billy Hunter and NBA Commissioner David Stern this past All-Star…

  9. After earthquake devastates Japan, NBA scrambles to keep finals in 3D

    Mar 21, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    IFA Technology Fair

    You didn’t think we could tie the devastating earthquake and tsunami into the NBA, but you underestimate us. First a little background: The NBA and many major sporting events for the past few years (even before 3D technology was really available for home use) were being filmed in 3D also. Things like the Olympics (some…

  10. Rockets send Hasheem Thabeet to D-League

    Mar 21, 2011, 4:39 PM EDT

    THABEET_HASHEEM

    Hasheem Thabeet is back in the D-League. It’s as good an option as the Rockets had. They acquired Thabeet — 7’3” former No. 2 overall pick out of Connecticut — in the Shane Battier trade but they were not playing him. He’s been on the court a total of 4 minutes since the trade. But…

  11. Arron Afflalo expected to miss rest of week in Denver

    Mar 21, 2011, 4:14 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Francisco Elson

    Denver’s offense did not look right with Arron Afflalo and Raymond Felton — the team’s starting backcourt — out this weekend. Of course, playing good defensive teams in Miami and Orlando probably had a little to do with that, too. Afflalo will be out the rest of the week recovering from a hamstring tweak, George…

  12. Having a Nitecap with Ron Artest by a Miami pool

    Mar 21, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    NBC Miami has one of those shows you can only do at NBC Miami — Nitecap with Peter Bailey. Where a celebrity rolls up to a Miami pool after hours and just hangs with the host talking whatever for a few minutes, then hits the club. Although, this is Ron Artest, so we’re sure he…

  13. Carlos Boozer expected to return to Bulls Monday

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    Carlos Boozer, after missing the Bulls last five games with a sprained ankle, took part in the team shootaround and is expected back on the court Monday night when the Bulls host the Kings Monday night, according to KC Johnson of the Chicago Tribune (via twitter). The timing could not be better, as Taj Gibson…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: The Lakers look like the Lakers again

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Notice that two of the top three are from the West? That’s because the East is stumbling toward the playoffs. 1. Lakers (50-20, LW #3). Four wins in a row and just one loss since the All-Star break. They won Monday without Andrew Bynum and will have another game without him Tuesday, but with his…

  15. Cavs Christian Eyenga recounts Staples Center knife incident

    Mar 21, 2011, 12:44 PM EDT

    EYENGA_CHRISTIAN

    When a knife-wielding crazy man rushed into Staples Center near the court Saturday afternoon about 90-minutes before the tipoff of the Cavaliers and Clippers, Christian Eyenga was out on the floor putting up some shots. The man rushed through the security at the media/employee entrance to Staples and down toward the court at Staples, with…

  16. Jalen Rose responds, says Duke comments taken out of context

    Mar 21, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    17th Annual ESPY Awards - Red Carpet

    When Jalen Rose was 17 and making one of the biggest decisions of his life — where to attend college — the inner city Detroit kid didn’t want to go to Duke because he didn’t see that as a place he fit in. In ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary on Rose and Michigan’s Fab Five,…

  17. Amar’e Stoudemire better than a fashion editor at basketball

    Mar 21, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire Vouge

    New York loves Amar’e Stoudemire. New York loves fashion (at least that’s what I learned watching Sex and the City). So Stoudemire on the pages of Vouge’s beautiful body issue this month shouldn’t be a shock. It is on newsstands tomorrow, the issue with Rihanna on the cover. Not that you notice such things. As part…

  18. Rockets’ Chase Budinger could be out week with ankle injury

    Mar 21, 2011, 11:28 AM EDT

    Chase Budinger

    Chase Budinger, who has been the Rockets starter at the three since Shane Battier went walking in Memphis, will be out likely a week with a sprained ankle, the Houston Chronicle reports. It happened in the second quarter against the Utah Jazz Sunday, where he was driving and Paul Milsap was defending and Bundinger just…

  19. Nowitzki probably to play for Germany this summer

    Mar 21, 2011, 11:03 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Washington Wizards

    Two things we know are going to happen this summer: 1) There is going to be a lockout (sorry folks, but it is happening). 2) Germany is going to be trying to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. That’s leading Dirk Nowitzki to think about helping his nation qualify for the games, he told the…

    Apple Unveils iPad 2

    One thing that has become ubiquitous in NBA locker rooms and around players — iPads. Out West, seeds five through 11 are within five games of each other. Here’s a breakdown on who has the advantage. A Sacramento PR man is urging a boycott of an April 1 Kings game in protest of the team’s…
