  1. 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…

  2. Quote of the day: Van Gundy defends D’Antoni

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    “As a coach, you don’t worry about that stuff too much because it goes with the business and we all will face a lot of criticism at times. That’s the way it goes. The rest of us all know tha tMike’s a hell of a coach. In that profession, we all know how good Mike…

  3. Jameer Nelson to miss Knicks game with knee injury

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    NELSON_JAMEER

    According to Ken Berger of CBS, Gilbert Arenas will start at point guard for the Magic tonight in the place of Jameer Nelson, who is out with a sprained right knee. The Magic are playing on the road against the free-falling New York Knicks, who desperately need a win. Ronny Turiaf is also injured, which…

  4. Derek Fisher receives retroactive flagrant-2 foul for incident with Chris Kaman

    Mar 28, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    During the Lakers’ 112-104 win over the Clippers on Friday, things got a little heated between Derek Fisher and Chris Kaman. In the game’s final 30 seconds, and with its ultimate result having already been decided, Kaman went to set a screen away from the ball, beyond the three-point line on Fisher. That’s when the…

  5. NBA season-ticket holders to receive refunds plus interest if games are lost due to work stoppage

    Mar 28, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    nba-tickets-thunder

    As the seemingly inevitable lockout looms over the NBA this summer, the very real possibility that the league could cancel games may be on the minds of its many season-ticket holders. Individual and business customers alike may be thinking about holding onto that money, while waiting to see if in fact there will be a…

  6. LeBron James not worried about return trip to Cleveland

    Mar 28, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    In December, LeBron James got the reception you’d expect from the fans in Cleveland. Then he and his new Heat teammates destroyed the Cavaliers as you’d expect. Tuesday night, LeBron returns to Cleveland and while he does not expect a warm greeting with roses thrown on the path he walks, he doesn’t think it will…

  7. Winderman: Battier a big loss for Rockets in playoff race

    Mar 28, 2011, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    The reasoning might have been right, but perhaps the target was wrong. Few approaches at the NBA trading deadline are considered as egregious as trading away your team’s chances at a playoff berth. So when Michael Jordan traded away (although “gave away” would be closer to the truth) Gerald Wallace to the Trail Blazers at…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Celtics, Spurs drop at regular season’s end

    Mar 28, 2011, 12:59 PM EDT

    Jackson_ring

    At the top would be every lazy sports columnist’s dream finals matchup — the Lakers versus the Bulls in Phil Jackson’s final year. (Well, final year for now, anyway). But do you really think the recent struggles of the Celtics and Spurs tell you much about those teams in the playoffs? 1. Lakers (53-20, LW…

  9. 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.…

  10. 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,…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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.…
