    Last Friday, the San Antonio Spurs went into Dallas and rocked the Mavericks on their home court. The final margin was just six points after a late-game flurry from the Mavs, but the Spurs were in control throughout. San Antonio put together an impressive offensive showcase, as the Spurs’ “Big Three” combined for 80 points…

  2. Rudy Gay has successful surgery on his left shoulder

    The Memphis Grizzlies have announced that Rudy Gay, who was injured during a game against the Sixers last month, has undergone surgery to reset his partially dislocated shoulder, per the Associated Press. Gay’s plan to have surgery was announced earlier this week, but the actual procedure was performed today, and has brought a complete termination…

  3. Hornets sign Patrick Ewing Jr. to a 10-day contract

    Mar 25, 2011, 7:37 PM EDT

    Patrick Ewing Jr.

    David West’s season is over, and thus, the Hornets’ season is over. New Orleans will still likely hold onto their playoff spot (though with West sidelined, a tough schedule ahead, and Houston on a roll, maybe we shouldn’t even take that much for granted), but even the slim chance the Hornets had to make it…

  4. Ilgauskas still recovering from infection, gauging progress on day-to-day basis

    Mar 25, 2011, 6:31 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas has missed six straight games with a foot injury, albeit one quite different than the myriad of foot ailments that have hindered him throughout his career. A wound to Ilgauskas’ foot — some reports claim that he stepped on a nail, while others cite a mere blister — opened up an opportunity for…

  5. Jermaine O’Neal set to return by the end of the month

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:50 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins is gone, but the sky isn’t falling for Boston’s defense. Even with only one true center (if Nenad Krstic even qualifies) in the rotation, the Celtics have posted two fantastic defensive performances in a row, holding both the Grizzlies and the Knicks to under 97 points per 100 possessions. That’s a remarkable level…

  6. Hornets’ David West out for the season with torn ACL

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:22 PM EDT

    david-west-torn-acl

    The Hornets’ David West went down in a heap Thursday night, with what the team officially described as “left knee trauma” at the time. Further tests on Friday revealed the injury to be a torn ACL (according to multiple reports) which will rule West out for the remainder of this season. While the team might…

  7. Don’t ask Shaq about facing Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum in the playoffs

    Mar 25, 2011, 4:52 PM EDT

    shaq-dwight-howard

    Shaquille O’Neal has only appeared in 36 games for the Celtics this season, and hasn’t appeared in any since Feb. 1. But Boston didn’t add Shaq for the regular season, they added him with the hope that he’ll provide some size and depth at the center position for what the team hopes will be another…

  8. Did Andrew Bynum learn anything from 2-game suspension?

    Mar 25, 2011, 4:03 PM EDT

    bynum-suspension

    Andrew Bynum faced the media on Thursday, the first time he’s done so since the league handed him a two-game suspension for the flagrant-two foul he committed last Friday against the Timberwolves’ Michael Beasley. Bynum repeatedly said how the play was “just a hard foul,” and that if Beasley didn’t get hurt or leave the…

  9. Calipari still regrets not drafting Kobe Bryant. Ya think?

    John Calipari knows talent. Think what you will of him as a person or coach, the guy knows how to spot and recruit young talent. So back in 1996 when he was the brand new coach of the Nets and he worked out a high school senior named Kobe Bryant before the draft, any chance…

  10. Sundiata Gaines to miss rest of season with fractured hip

    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…

  11. Report: Lakers, Clippers lack votes to block Kings Anaheim move

    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…

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

    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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

    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…
