  1. Video: Monta Ellis, putting on a show

    Mar 28, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Golden State Warriors

    There may be no more entertaining player in the league right now than Monta Ellis. Night in, night out, the guy is putting on a show. There are still a lot of issues for Golden State to work out if they want to be good, but right now they are at least fun to watch.…

  2. Report: Toronto open to moving Andrea Bargnani

    Mar 28, 2011, 11:34 AM EDT

    Image (1) bargnani-thumb-250x373-20637.jpg for post 4239

    This season confirmed what we already really knew in Toronto: You can’t build around Andrea Bargnani. He can score, if you don’t mind your big men hanging out on the perimeter. He can fit in on the right team as a second (or better yet third) option. But that is not apparently happening in Toronto,…

  3. UNC’s Barnes says he is not thinking about NBA. Sure kid.

    Mar 28, 2011, 10:53 AM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Third Round - Charlotte

    There is no worse time to ask a college player about his NBA future than right after his team was eliminated from the NCAA Tournament. Any player you would actually want to draft should be emotionally crushed because he was invested in the team. So we enter North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes. The Des Moines Register…

  4. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Mar 28, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard caved — he had his beard trimmed. He was the first Magic player to do so since they decided to grow playoff beards as a team. Fortunately for all of us, Stan Van Gundy is not playing along. If — really, when at this point — the Kings move to Anaheim, the Lakers…

  5. Other key Knicks shooting worse since ‘Melo’s arrival

    Mar 28, 2011, 10:07 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Dallas Mavericks

    Since Carmelo Anthony arrived with the Knicks, their offense overall has gotten nominally better. They had averaged 109.8 points per 100 possessions, now that is up to 110.4. But they haven’t looked good doing it. (And the slightly better offense doesn’t make up for the much worse defense, especially in the fourth quarter. Which is…

  6. Latest Shaq timetable: April 3. Or 5. Somewhere in there.

    Mar 28, 2011, 9:32 AM EDT

    Shaq_dunk

    Last we heard, Shaquille O’Neal might have been back by April 1. Nope. He had a shot to ease pain in his foot and has been wearing a boot, which should come off later this week, but Doc Rivers told the Boston Globe not to expect the big man back that fast. Think April 3.…

  7. Nets Quinton Ross done for season with herniated disk

    Mar 28, 2011, 8:54 AM EDT

    Ross_Quinton

    Quinton Ross has barely touched the court lately for the Nets — just four minutes total in the team’s last seven games — but now it is official, he is done for the season. He has a herniated disk in his back and the Nets are shutting him down, reports the New York Post. “Unfortunately…

  8. Video: Lou Williams three sends game to overtime for Sixers

    Mar 28, 2011, 8:18 AM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    There was a time, early in the season, when we wondered when the Sixers would start executing and making plays a the end of game and win a few close ones. Well, they are doing it quite well now. Even if it didn’t come out as planned here. Watch Lou Williams execute here, knocking down…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Heat were setting records (but not playing defense)

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:30 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

    What you missed while watching the last days of Spring Training… The Spurs falling to the Grizzlies (and picking up another injury in the process) plus the Mavericks knocking off (and out?) the Suns are our games of the night. Heat 125, Rockets 119: We got to see a little bit of history from Miami’s…

  10. Jason Kidd leads Mavericks late in win over the Suns

    Mar 28, 2011, 3:45 AM EDT

    kidd-nash

    The Suns tried their best to outlast the Mavericks on Sunday, swapping out 40 percent of their starting lineup to try to put the right pieces in place in an effort to begin an improbable run to the postseason. Phoenix played well early, but Dallas made the right adjustments defensively, and got huge fourth quarters…

  11. Ginobili out as Spurs’ slide continues; Grizzlies get breathing room

    Mar 28, 2011, 12:09 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    The Spurs have been without Tim Duncan for three games with his latest injury. They have now lost all three games after the Grizzlies edged the Spurs 111-104. And while they are 6-4 in their past ten, the slide has been apparent. The Spurs are entering the playoffs neither healthy nor high on momentum. Add…

  12. LeBron and Wade take in a tennis match

    Mar 27, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Perhaps you’re wondering what far-stretched angle I’m going to use to justify blogging about a LeBron James-Dwyane Wade tennis match. Well, first, here’s Wade talking about taking the King to the Sony Ericsson Open: The Miami Heat stars showed up at the Sony Ericsson Open to be part of a coin toss before world No.…

  13. Marcus Thornton does it again

    Mar 27, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Thornton_Marcus

    The Kings have very little left to play for. The season has been a disaster from the get-go, with Tyreke Evans struggling through injury all season, the team chafing at DeMarcus Cousins’ immaturity, and the coaching staff looking lost at time. But perhaps the brightest spot outside of Cousins’ play has been the emergence of…

  14. Maloofs shut down latest Sacramento arena plan

    Mar 27, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Well, that didn’t take long. After a plan had been submitted that was supposed to save Sacramento from the Kings’ relocation to Anaheim, including a funding source, the Maloofs have already gone and rejected the proposal, because the money wasn’t there and called for renovation, not a new arena. “A representative of the Maloofs listened…

  15. Jalen Rose and Grant Hill bury the hatchet

    Mar 27, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    After the controversy surrounding Jalen Rose’s comments about Grant Hill in the Fab Five documentary for ESPN (along with Jimmy King’s comments about Hill being a female dog), it would appear things are on their back to recovery for the two’s friendship. Hill tweeted on Saturday: Had a great talk with @jalenrose today. We remain…

  16. Julian Wright refuses to enter game for Raptors, apologizes

    Mar 27, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Golden State Warriors

    Julian Wright never seems to have understood that the problems he’s faced in his NBA career are not the work of the bogeyman. He’s not the victim of a conspiracy to keep him off the floor. He struggles with basic flow on both sides of the ball and has never been able to apply his…

  17. Joe Johnson day-to-day with thumb injury

    Mar 27, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks

    Joe Johnson suffered a sprained thumb in the Hawks’ playoff-clinching win over the Nets Saturday night and will miss Sunday’s game in Cleveland at least while being evaluated. Afterwards, Johnson was pretty clear on the fact he wouldn’t be rushing back from injury this late in the season, especially after clinching the playoffs. “Maybe if…

  18. Zydrunas Ilgauskas to return to Heat Sunday

    Mar 27, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Friday we let you know of reports indicating Zydrunas Ilgauskas was on his way back to recovery from that grotesque foot injury he sustained when he stepped on a nail. Now comes word that ESPN reports Ilgauskas is expected to return to action Sunday against Houston for the first time in eight games. Ilgauskas’ return…

  19. If you take Deron Williams’ temperature on Jersey, bring something to keep warm

    Mar 26, 2011, 9:00 PM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    Deron Williams is the future of the Nets. He’s the star that Mikhail Prokhorov has been searching for since he took over ownership of the team. Thwarted in the lottery for John Wall, thwarted in the biggest free agency period in history, thwarted in the pursuit of Melo, the Nets finally landed a superstar, and…

  20. Phil Jackson isn’t a big fan of the Kings’ Anaheim relocation plan

    Mar 26, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    Phil Jackson’s not exactly what you would call a friend to the NBA small market. He played in New York, coached in Chicago and then Los Angeles. He’s supported contraction, despite growing up, attending high school, and college in small market areas, albeit ones without NBA teams. But Jackson has been surprisingly supportive of Sacramento…
