  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs get top seed, Heat slip back

    Apr 7, 2011, 8:51 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    What you missed while barking at a police dog…. Bucks 90, Heat 85: No Dwyane Wade in this one due to his thigh bruise, and the Heat are now 3-2 when he sits. It didn’t help that Chris Bosh floated around the perimeter this game (except during the Heat’s one fourth quarter run, not so…

  2. Video: Tyreke Evans does a bad thing to Gary Neal

    Apr 7, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    I no longer believe those reports that Tyreke Evans feet are not 100 percent. Because they look pretty good and he looks plenty explosive on this dunk. A coast-to-coast play where the Spurs Gary Neal tries to slide in late and draw the charge — a good thought — but he ends up in the…

  3. Playoff picture starts to come into focus (Heat may not like it)

    Apr 7, 2011, 2:03 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    Not everything is clear to me. Like how Rebecca Black has a career, for one. Or how Criminal Minds has been on television for so long. But the NBA playoff picture? That started to come into focus Wednesday and the Spurs like what they see. Miami, not so much. So here is a quick run…

  4. Quentin Richardson ejected from Magic-Bobcats game

    Apr 6, 2011, 9:37 PM EDT

    RICHARDSON_QUENTIN

    From the AP: Orlando forward Quentin Richardson has been ejected from the Magic’s game at Charlotte after hitting the Bobcats’ Gerald Henderson in the face with both hands in a scuffle along the baseline. Henderson was trying to dribble out of pressure early in the fourth quarter of a tight game Wednesday night when Richardson…

  5. Dwight Howard gets technical (and suspension) for slow free throws

    Apr 6, 2011, 8:59 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard likely will be suspended for Sunday’s big showdown game against the Chicago Bulls because he takes to long with his free throws. Seriously. Let me explain. First, Howard already has 17 technical fouls this season. For the 16th and every other one after it a player gets a suspension. Howard has served one…

  6. Win Darko Milicic’s championship ring in a raffle

    Apr 6, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic Pistons

    First things first: Yes, Darko Milicic has a championship ring. Mock him if you want, but he was a rookie on a veteran Pistons team in the 2004 season and he wasn’t playing much (just 34 games). He played a total of 14 minutes in the playoffs and was a human victory cigar. He still…

  7. Wade out, James Jones to start against Bucks

    Apr 6, 2011, 6:55 PM EDT

    Jones_James

    Heat coach Erik Spolestra has announced that shooting guard Dwayne Wade will miss tonight’s Heat-Bucks game due to a sore thigh. Three-point marksman James Jones will start in Wade’s place. Jones obviously can’t replace Wade, but the Heat do play well when he is in the starting lineup — Mike Bibby, Udonis Haslem, and Zydrunas…

  8. Timofey Mosgov out 10-14 days with knee, ankle sprains

    Apr 6, 2011, 6:37 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    According to Aaron J. Lopez of Nuggets.com, Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov is expected to miss the next the next 10-14 days with knee and ankle sprains. Mosgov, who the Nuggets received as part of the Carmelo Anthony trade, has played spot minutes since being traded. In March, Mosgov averaged 2.6 points and 1.8 rebounds in…

  9. Likely top pick Kyrie Irving makes it official, enters draft

    Apr 6, 2011, 6:10 PM EDT

    kyrie-irving

    Kryie Irving is leaving Duke after his freshman year to enter the NBA draft. It’s official. This wasn’t really a surprise to anyone except delusional, hard-core Duke fans who refuse to believe anyone is going to leave their heaven-on-earth campus, but reality intrudes once again. Irving likely will be the top overall pick. Start trying…

  10. A few thoughts on the premiere of “The LeBrons”

    Apr 6, 2011, 5:36 PM EDT

    The LeBrons

    As we mentioned earlier, LeBron James‘ web series, “The LeBrons,” premiered today. Here are a few thoughts from the seven-minute premier episode: – “The LeBrons” is available for free on the internet, and doesn’t have any commercial breaks. How does it pay for itself? Blatant product placement! In the first episode, Nike, HP, Beats By Dre, and…

  11. LeBron James buys part of England’s Liverpool soccer club

    Apr 6, 2011, 4:54 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James now owns a piece of one of England’s legendary soccer clubs. James has reached a deal with Fenway Sports Group (FSG), the majority owner of Liverpool FC, essentially merging his marketing company into FSG’s marketing arm and being paid a part of the club for doing so, according to the Wall Street Journal.…

  12. Bucks claim “honors” as NBA’s most injured team. Congratulations!

    Apr 6, 2011, 4:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Yes, we know. Your team would have done so much better if it weren’t for the injuries. Just know that there is always some team that had it worse. Unless you’re a Milwaukee Bucks fan. Over at Basketball Prospectus, friend-of-the-site Kevin Pelton did the heavy lifting and compiled the lists of man games lost to…

  13. Shorthanded Wizards bringing in Larry Owens from D-League

    Apr 6, 2011, 3:24 PM EDT

    larry-owens

    Remember yesterday when we told you that five key Washington Wizards were done for the rest of the season? (Of course you do, you commit every story here to memory. What else have you got to do?) That leaves nine guys on the Wizards roster — a roster that has won three in a row…

  14. Derrick Rose thinks Bulls are ready to win it all this year

    Apr 6, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose wouldn’t be Derrick Rose without his swagger. His confidence. So it shouldn’t be a shock that when asked if the Bulls — who have yet to get out of the first round — can suddenly jump to winning to winning a title, his response was yes. From the Waddle and Silvy show on…

  15. Bulls fan curses at, spits on Grant Hill… wait Grant Hill?

    Apr 6, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is about the least offensive guy in the NBA. Even Jalen Rose gets along with him now. Hill doesn’t trash talk, was an elite player,  has fought back from devastating ankle injuries to be a key player again, and David Stern loves him because he doesn’t scare the rich corporate CEOs in the…

  16. Lakers say stop calling Pau Gasol soft

    Apr 6, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Them’s fightin’ words to the Lakers. Well, at least verbal fighting. A couple people have taken swings at Pau Gasol and used the soft word recently, as ESPNLosAngeles.com reports, starting with the Knicks Amar’e Stoudemire. “He’s still soft,” Stoudemire said with a grin and a shrug. “But, he’s a good player, you know what I…

  17. “The LeBrons” (you know, animated LeBron) has arrived

    Apr 6, 2011, 12:39 PM EDT

    the_lebrons_family

    “The LeBrons” — now with een more LeBron! Below is the first episode of The LeBrons, the animated spinoff of a commercial. Because if there is one thing we need more of its spin offs of commercials, like turning the GEICO caveman into a sitcom. How’d that work out? But this is going to be…

  18. Ben Wallace looks to future, contemplates retirement after season

    Apr 6, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Clippers

    Ben Wallace has one more season on what will almost certainly be his last NBA contract, he is set to make nearly $2.3 million. And that might not be enough to bring him back. Wallace has reached the end of a frustrating season in Detroit — one where his game regressed and the team was…

  19. If you believe in the Orlando Magic, just clap your hands

    Apr 6, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    “Do you believe in fairies? Say quick that you believe. If you believe, clap your hands!” —J.M. Barrie, from The Adventures of Peter Pan. Apparently, the Orlando Magic work on the same principles as fictional fairies like Tinkerbell. They’ll die if you don’t believe in them. There’s plenty of cynicism around the Orlando Magic and…

  20. Nets want to re-sign Kris Humphries (then maybe trade him)

    Apr 6, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries

    Kris Humphries is an unrestricted free agent but says wants to come back to the Nets and be there when they move to Brooklyn. The Nets want Kris Humphries back. Well, at least until they trade him. But we’ll get to that later. Humphries had a break out season — credit The Kardashian Effect —…
