  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Thunder almost give one away, Warriors almost take it

    Mar 30, 2011, 7:22 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook

    What you missed while checking out what Super Mario would look like as a first-person shooter… The Cavaliers beating the Heat with an inside game was our game of the night. Thunder 115, Warriors 114 (OT): The Thunder had this one, up 10 inside five minutes and up six with 13 seconds to go. Just…

  2. Anaheim approves $75 million bond to lure Kings to city

    The Maloof brothers now have done pretty much everything but drive the moving trucks up to the Kings offices. Tuesday night one of the final hurdles in the path of the Kings relocating to Anaheim was cleared when the Anaheim City Council unanimously approved a lease for an NBA tenant in the Honda Center and…

  3. Cavaliers win could be blueprint for Heat playoff trouble

    Mar 29, 2011, 11:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Baron Davis and his swagger are a great storyline and a Heat killer. The cathartic feeling for Cavaliers fans makes headlines and the legions of Heat haters happy. Heat fans will rightfully counter this is one relatively meaningless game. And they’re right, this one game doesn’t matter. Rather, what should worry Heat fans is how…

  4. LeBron skips player introductions on return to Cleveland

    Mar 29, 2011, 10:21 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    UPDATE 10:21 pm: In his post game interview, James said he was using the restroom during the introductions. Certainly a legitimate reason. We’ll just say again — and even Kevin McHale said the same thing on NBA TV — with all the games I’ve watched over decades I don’t remember that happening to anyone else.…

  5. Heat don’t expect Udonis Haslem back anytime soon

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_g_haslem1_sw_576-thumb-250x140-15204.jpg for post 2933

    The Miami Heat could really use Udonis Haslem. They could use the depth, the strength inside, the rebounding, the defense. The Heat had hoped to get Haslem back from the torn ligament in his left foot by the start of the playoffs, but before tonight’s game in Cleveland Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Haslem wouldn’t…

  6. Coach K stirs up Duke vs. Fab 5 issue again. Ugh.

    Mar 29, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Grant Hill and Jalen Rose hugged it out. Or talked it out. Or tweeted it out. So finally we can put this whole Fab 5 vs. Duke thing to bed…. Then here comes Mike Krzyzewski. Like your grandfather that just heard about this Lady Gaga person and wants to tell you she can’t sing, he…

  7. LeBron’s entourage gets turned away from Cleveland arena

    Mar 29, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    There was a time — just a mere 11 months ago — when LeBron James and his crew had the run of Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Some say they ran the place. If they wanted an ice sculpture of a Harley-Davidson waiting on their arrival for each game, it was there. No more. When…

  8. UCLA, USC stars among those declaring for NBA Draft

    Mar 29, 2011, 4:32 PM EDT

    UCLA v Florida

    A number of college underclassmen are lining up to enter the NBA draft, lockout or no. Well, most are really testing the waters — if they don’t sign with an agent they do not lose eligibility and can return to college. But there are some names to watch and here are some of them. Tyler…

  9. Stan Van Gundy is sick of the Knicks/Heat hype

    Mar 29, 2011, 3:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Well, at least Stan Van Gundy will not get fined for ripping David Stern this time. But we did want to bring you his mini-rant before his Magic — minus Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick — went out and lost to the Knicks. He spoke for a lot of NBA fans (and team employees) outside…

  10. Derrick Rose’s season inspires John Wall

    Mar 29, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Washington Wizards

    Each year Derrick Rose has stepped on the court, he has gotten better. Each of his three seasons he has taken on more and more of the Chicago offense but his true shooting percentage has gone up each year (that’s his points per shot attempt, counting threes and fouls), his assist percentages have gone up,…

  11. Cavaliers bring out big gun… well Baron Davis, for Heat

    Mar 29, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    There has been less hype, maybe there will be less venom when the Heat return to Cleveland for the second time this Tuesday. The game was not even a sell out hours before tip off. Maybe it will be more basketball and less circus. We can hope, anyway. But make no mistake the Cavs want…

  12. Video: Making of those NBA time-travel commercials

    Mar 29, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    KEVIN-DURANT-NEW-NBA

    Interesting video posted by our friends at Dime Magazine (via TrueHoop), a look behind those NBA time-travel ads (with Steve Nash here, but they were done with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and more). Which frankly, are not my favorite. You get the chance to go back in time and you use it to tell some…

  13. Starters ride the pine in Utah, which makes Al Jefferson mad

    Mar 29, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Al Jefferson, Zach Zarba

    Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin went with the kids. He went with the hot hand. The Utah Jazz starters had trailed the Washington Wizards by as many as 12 points, so when the youth movement — led by rookie Derrick Favors and his 9 fourth quarter points on 4-of-4 shooting — made a comeback they got…

  14. Jermaine O’Neal back practicing with Celtics, may play this week

    Mar 29, 2011, 12:12 PM EDT

    jermaine-oneal1

    One of the O’Neals is ready to return to Boston. Jermaine O’Neal will return from knee surgery to Boston practices this week and said he hopes to be playing center Thursday night against the Spurs in a battle of the slumping superpowers. Doc Rivers said fat chance he’ll play that soo our man A. Sherrod…

  15. Ricky Rubio rumors: Lockout remains key issue

    Mar 29, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    You have to admire the unrelenting optimism in Minnesota that Ricky Rubio is going to play with the team next season. But even that Midwestern, can-do optimism knows limits — the lockout is strangling that hope right out of Wolves fans. Check out this note from the Pioneer Press where — like only in the…

  16. Somebody get Ray Allen the ball. The man can shoot.

    Mar 29, 2011, 10:57 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    Boston’s offense is off. In their last 10 games, Boston’s offense has averaged 104 points per 100 possessions, down from their 106.4 points per 100 for the season (based on the Knickerblogger numbers). Ray Allen is part of that — he is shooting 44.3 percent in the last 10 games, down from 49.3 percent for…

  17. Sacramento tells Anaheim to back off, Maloofs get ticked

    Mar 29, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    As always, it’s about the money. It’s always about the money. The latest noise in the seemingly inevitable move of the Kings out of Sacramento to Anaheim is that the Sacramento City Manager sent a letter, vaguely threatening legal action, if Anaheim did not back off its efforts to lure the Kings. The Sacramento Bee…

  18. PBT Tuesday morning one liners

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:43 AM EDT

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    The big story in Philly: Lou Williams and some others Sixers went to the Lil’ Wayne concert Saturday night before a noon-tipoff Sunday against the Kings. And the Sixers lost and some fans are blaming the night out (even though Jrue Holiday went and played well). This is mostly about Williams off shooting day, and…

  19. Video: Vintage Carmelo Anthony night gets Knicks win

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:02 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    That was vintage Carmelo Anthony Monday night. His team needed a win and he put up 39 points hitting shots with a man in his face all night. He controlled the offense and the game in the second half. Watch the video. The flip side is he shot a pedestrian 46.1 percent, he took the…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Ugly or not, Knicks and Pacers will take wins

    Mar 29, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while you were stealing a 600-pound bronze moose statue… Knicks 113, Magic 106 (OT): The Kicks were desperate for a win. The Magic were without Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick which meant heavy doses of Gilbert Arenas (who was 1-of-7 from three). Dwight Howard fouled out. That meant a streak breaking win…
