  1. Video: Shawne Williams with throwdown dunk over Dwight Howard

    Mar 2, 2011, 8:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    This dunk would be impressive over Earl Boykins, but over Dwight Howard it is pretty incredible. Shawne Williams gets to the baseline and drives, Howard is not in the best defensive rotation position ever and Williams just goes at him and climbs him and does a classic throwdown. That may have been the best part…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Maybe the Spurs are going to miss Tony Parker

    Mar 2, 2011, 8:24 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies Celebrate

    What you missed while driving around in reverse… Grizzlies 109, Spurs 93: Memphis has officially taken on the mantel of “the team nobody wants to face in the first round.” They play physically, they have a long front line, they have good athletes on the wing and they can score. Memphis is going to be…

  3. Chauncey Billups leaves game with thigh bruise, could be out Wednesday

    Mar 2, 2011, 2:03 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Carmelo Anthony is nice throw in and all, but it was brilliant of the Knicks to trade for Chauncey Billups — that guy is killing it. Have you seen the Knicks?  Billups has become the brains of the outfit. The Knicks play smarter and more under control with Billups on the court. Bad news is…

  4. Timberwolves buy out Eddy Curry. Anybody interested? Anybody? Bueller?

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT

    It seemed unlikely that Eddy Curry was ever going to suit up for the Minnesota Timberwolves. It’s not like they were ever going to take minutes away from Kevin Love to give to Curry. Heck, I wouldn’t take minutes away from Darko to give to Curry. So the two sides agreed to a buyout, the…

  5. London Calling: Nets land in England for weekend games

    The Nets have landed in London and they have a few days to get used to doing things in England before they play. Like what side of the bus to get on (watch the video, that makes more sense then). The Nets and Raptors play a back-to-back at the O2 Arena in London Friday and…

  6. Wizards buy out Al Thornton; likely to sign with Warriors

    Mar 1, 2011, 7:01 PM EDT

    Al Thornton

    Early in the season the Wizards needed Al Thornton at the forward spot. Then they traded for Rashard Lewis and Mo Evans. Then Josh Howard returned from injury. Then Thornton dislocated the middle finger on his shooting hand, he slid totally out of the rotation, and he was not getting back in soon. So Tuesday…

  7. Report: Dwight Howard is next target for Nets

    Mar 1, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Dwight Howard doesn’t want be part of the 2012 free agent rumor mill, but just when he thought he was out… they pull him back in. We mentioned earlier today that Deron Williams was going to be an eager recruiter for the Nets. The first target will be Dwight Howard, according to the Bergen Record.…

  8. Piston’s coach says team “starting over,” throws every position open

    Mar 1, 2011, 4:58 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Well, this should solve all their problems. Piston’s coach John Kuester has thrown every position — starting and off the bench — open to competition, he told the Detroit News. “That’s what I said to the team yesterday,” the Pistons’ coach said Tuesday before the morning shootaround at the Bradley Center. “All starting positions, all…

  9. What does Troy Murphy bring to Boston?

    Mar 1, 2011, 4:14 PM EDT

    Troy_Murphy

    The Boston Celtics got Troy Murphy and the Miami Heat didn’t. In the end, that may be the biggest part of the Murphy signing by the Celtics. Boston already had some depth, even though their front line is banged up now. Miami on the other hand really needs a guy who can stretch the floor…

  10. Inside how the Deron Williams trade went down

    Mar 1, 2011, 3:42 PM EDT

    Deron Williams, Avery Johnson, Billy King

    The Deron Williams trade was as out of the blue as an NBA trade can be. Nobody saw it coming — not even Williams. But a great bit of reporting by Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune pulls back the curtain a little on the normally very secret Jazz organization. The story explains…

  11. How did Shane Battier find out he was traded? Twitter.

    Shane Battier Memphis Grizzlies

    It wasn’t just you wasting your entire day trying to keep up with your twitter timeline on NBA trade deadline day. Shane Battier was too, and that’s how he found out he was headed back to Memphis, he told WHBQ in Memphis (via Sports Radio Interviews). “I actually found out through Twitter feeds online. Honestly,…

  12. Heat clear out Carlos Arroyo to make way for Mike Bibby. Is that an upgrade?

    Mar 1, 2011, 2:58 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New Orleans Hornets

    To bring Mike Bibby in, somebody had to go. So adios Carlos Arroyo. Thanks for your services. Arroyo was bought out by the Heat, sent packing to make room for Bibby, who is expected to sign with the Heat on Wednesday when he clears waivers. Bibby sacrificed his $6.2 million salary next season to be…

  13. Deron Williams to be willing recruiter for Nets

    Mar 1, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    Deron Williams, "Jay-Z" Sean Corey Carter , Beyonce Knowles

    Deron Williams, welcome to the front line of the recruiting wars. If you’re going to win in the NBA, you need a few stars together in one place — and that means you’re going to have to sell. You’re going to have to recruit like Gene Chizik. Especially if you are not Boston/Los Angeles/New York/Miami.…

  14. Video: Derrick Rose turns John Wall around with between legs assist

    Mar 1, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is playing well for a rookie point guard. Derrick Rose is playing well for anyone. Monday night on a fast break Rose turned Wall around with the sick assist between his own legs to Joakim Noah for the dunk. Just teaching the rookie a couple of things (on the Bulls way to a…

  15. Kings get until April 18 to decide on Anaheim move

    Mar 1, 2011, 1:01 PM EDT

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    The Maloof brothers have a little more time to negotiate and think things through. The NBA’s Board of Governors — the owners — has granted the Sacramento Kings an extension until April 18 to file for relocation next season, according to a tweet from CNBC’s Darren Rovell. That deadline is usually March 1. The board…

  16. Kendrick Perkins agrees to contract extension with Thunder

    NBA Finals Game 4: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 12:16 pm: We have the financial figures — $34.8 million over four years, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. That works out to an average of $8.7 million a year and is about $12 million more than Boston could offer. Boston was hamstrung with its offer because it is over the salary cap, which…

  17. Call him Dropkick, Troy Murphy is going to Boston

    Mar 1, 2011, 12:10 PM EDT

    Troy Murphy

    And his new nickname will be “Dropkick.” Troy Murphy is going to go to Boston, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Marc Stein, who spoke with Murphy. A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England confirms Murphy is Boston bound as well. So the Notre Dame graduate Irish kid chose Boston. Suppose we should have seen…

  18. PBT Tuesday Morning One Liners

    Mar 1, 2011, 11:18 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    The final Works column at FanHouse. I am really going to miss Shoals and Freeman (and Ziller) doing this every day. Former Celtic Al Jefferson is as perplexed by the Kendrick Perkins trade as the rest of us are. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau calls Luol Deng his “glue guy.” (Also, he seems pretty shocked by…

  19. Troy Murphy now torn between Heat, Celtics; Bibby Miami bound

    Mar 1, 2011, 10:20 AM EDT

    Nets_Murphy

    Just 24 hours ago Boston felt pretty good about getting some more help along their front line in the form of Troy Murphy, the veteran stretch four bought out by the Warriors. Then Pat Riley and the Heat got involved. Things are up in the air with a decision expected Tuesday, according to CSN New…

  20. Video: Another day, another Channing Frye game winner

    Mar 1, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    Channing Frye Steve Nash

    Two nights in a row Channing Frye gets free and knocks down the game-winning three for the Suns, this time in overtime in New Jersey. Kris Humphries makes the defensive mistake of going for the pass not staying with Frye (his man), and because of that he gets hung up on Marcin Gortat’s massive screen.…
