  1. Blake Griffin puts up 47, NBA one-game high for season. He’s more than dunks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansbrough

    Blake Griffin is a basketball stud. I don’t mean in the highlight dunk kind of way… well, yes I do. That too. He has more dunks than anyone in the league by a long shot. But in the “this guy can flat out ball” kind of way. He dropped 47 on the Indiana Pacers Monday…

  2. Brandon Roy has knee operations, called successful

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:46 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Doctors will tell you any surgery you wake up from is a successful surgery. So, on multiple levels Brandon Roy’s double knee operation today was a success. Operations on both knees took place on Monday, cleaning up issues as best they can, and now the recovery and rehabilitation begins. There is no set timetable for…

  3. Antawn Jamison considering retirement after next season

    Jan 17, 2011, 7:26 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    Antawn Jamison is 34 years old. He isn’t exceptionally athletic (and never has been, really), exceptionally strong, or exceptionally tall. His game could age fairly well as long as his employer is willing to put up with his defensive limitations, and Jamison could certainly find NBA work as a scorer, rebounder, and calming locker room…

  4. Rockets’ Ish Smith assigned to the D-League

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:47 PM EDT

    Ishmael Smith

    Ish Smith had enough draft red flags coming out of Wake Forest that he wasn’t selected at all in this past summer’s draft, but by now there should be no doubt that Smith is a legitimate NBA prospect. Smith may not have exploded onto the scene with his first chances at legitimate playing time, but…

  5. Thibodeau defends Asik’s play

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:25 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    After Chris Bosh got injured in a collision with Chicago Bulls forward Omer Asik during Saturday’s game, he was critical of Asik after the game for diving after a loose ball that was close to Bosh’s legs. Asik didn’t come all that close to the ball, but he did end up making contact with Bosh’s…

  6. The night that the lights went out in Minnesota

    Jan 17, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    TargetCenter

    Just passing along this video from the Magic/Timberwolves game, where the lights just go out midgame at the Target Center. Is it just me that pictures Johnny from Airplane! sitting somewhere in the rafters, pushing the plugs back together and saying “just kidding.” Then he does his evil laugh.

  7. Nets say no permission given to talk to ‘Melo. Yet. Meanwhile Knicks talk more picks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 5:10 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    Just as an update, here is where we stand with Carmelo Anthony and the trade rumors, a saga that has become more annoying and drawn out than a Grey’s Anatomy storyline. Sunday it was reported that the Nets were given permission to talk to Carmelo Anthony, which really meant Nets owners Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z…

  8. Report: Anthony Randolph requests trade from Knicks

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:22 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    The Knicks have reportedly been shopping Anthony Randolph around, seeking a first-round pick they could use in Carmleo Anthony trade. Of course, it’s looking more and more likely that there will not be a ‘Melo trade for the Knicks as the Nets have become clear front runners (if owner Mikhail Prokhorov can get ‘Melo to…

  9. LeBron, Wade, Bosh all sit out Heat practice

    Jan 17, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    What would the Justice League look like without any of its Super Friends? What would the Miami Heat look like without any of their big three? The Cleveland Cavaliers? Worse? It is possible — if unlikely — that we find out Tuesday night. Monday afternoon Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James all sat out…

  10. Garnett says Celtics should learn lesson from Patriots loss

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:57 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    You’d think fine people in Boston would be used to losing sporting events to teams from New York by now. But apparently not as most of New England is in stunned silence about the Patriots loss to the loudmouth New York Jets on Saturday. Kevin Garnett, writing on his blog in China (for his shoe…

  11. NBA Power Rankings, the mid-season report edition

    Jan 17, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion,  Tim Duncan

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings, with a focus on the first half of the season and what to look forward to. So for you Cavs fans, we should start talking draft. 1. Spurs (35-6). Well, that first half couldn’t have gone much better. We knew the Spurs would be good, they always are, but one…

  12. Blake Griffin, Lamar Odom ejected after tussle over hustle

    Jan 17, 2011, 12:33 PM EDT

    James Capers, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Randy Foye, Ryan Gomes, Blake Griffin

    The game was over, in any real sense of the word. It was 99-90 Clippers with 5.7 seconds left. Randy Foye would shoot his free throws, the Lakers would dribble out the clock and the Clippers would have beaten their second elite team in a week. But it didn’t end quietly. As Foye shot and…

  13. Tyrus Thomas suspended for elbowing Emeka Okafor’s face

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    With two and a half minutes left in the Bobcats loss Saturday to the Hornets, Tyrus Thomas went up for a rebound, came down with the ball and his elbows out, then, in trying to create space, swung his left elbow directly into the face of Emeka Okafor. He got the flagrant two foul for…

  14. Video: Turns out, Lou Williams can rap

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Lou Williams Jumper

    There are no shortage of NBA players who think they are rappers (and no shortage of MCs who think they can ball). Usually, this ends in disaster. Right, Kobe? But the Sixers sixth man Lou Williams…. not bad. Not bad at all.

  15. John Wall’s injuries holding him back

    Jan 17, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, John Wall

    John Wall has been solid — he’s averaging 15.3 points and 8.9 assists per game — but he has not been what everyone hoped. We expected a guy who was going to be the next great point guard in the league and to show that from day one, but he plays like a guy still…

  16. Trailer for Kobe’s Nike movie leaked

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    He plays in Los Angeles, it was just a matter of time before the acting bug bit Kobe Bryant. He just won’t have to wait tables at California Pizza Kitchen while he waits for his big break. Bryant and director Robert Rodriguez (“Sin City,” “Spy Kids”) have teamed up to make a full-fledged movie for…

  17. Rudy Fernandez loves Portland and doesn’t want to be traded. Why would you think that?

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez

    Rudy Fernandez loves Portland. Loves playing basketball there. He told the Oregonian he doesn’t want to be traded he just wants to keep on being a Blazers. Why would you think otherwise? Oh yea, this summer when his agent demanded a trade and even threatened a holdout at one point. Fernandez’s people demanding a trade…

  18. Carlos Boozer out Monday with sprained ankle

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Antawn Jamison

    While we were all listening to Chris Bosh whine about his ankle being sprained, Carlos Boozer walked out of the United Center Thursday night with a boot over his left foot due to a sprained ankle. Boozer will be out Monday afternoon when they take on the Grizzlies, according to Sam Smith on Bulls.com. If…

  19. Weekend Baseline to Baseline: Up, down, and all around

    Jan 17, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Friday Night Hornets 110 Rockets 105 (OT): A fun little romp, but also yet another in a seemingly endless case of Houston working hard in a mad scientist’s lab to discover new ways to lose games. This time it was letting David West take over down the stretch, then playing zero defense in the extra…

  20. Carmelo Anthony: “I don’t want to talk to nobody.”

    Jan 17, 2011, 4:18 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    As we told you previously, Carmelo Anthony has been offered freedom to talk to the New Jersey Nets about going East as part of a massive three-team trade… Except, for the record, he doesn’t want to talk to anyone. That’s what he said Sunday night, as reported by the Denver Post. “I don’t want to…
