  1. Prokhorov backs off Nets to playoff pledge, looks long term — like to David West

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    The Nets are not going to make the playoffs this year. I know it’s not a shock, we all kind of knew that was happening before the season started. They won 12 games last season, we all recognized how much work there was to do. They’ll probably finish around 25 wins this season, and that’s…

  2. Mark Cuban, Charlie Sheen talking about a new show. What could go wrong?

    Mar 7, 2011, 11:25 AM EDT

    Charlie Sheen (aka Carlos Irwin Estevez) Disposition Hearing

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has his own television channel, HDNet. Which is cool, I want one. But having a television channel without a hit show is like having an iPhone without apps. As you read this, HDNet is showing some old Cheers reruns (the one where Diane’s cat dies) followed by a Third Eye…

  3. PBT Monday Morning One Liners

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:51 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    No Kendrick Perkins and Shaq hasn’t played in a month. That is making some Celtics fans uncomfortable. Dwight Howard on his suspension for getting a 16th technical (which he will serve Monday night): ‘I’ll try not to let the officiating affect the way I play. It’s very tough, but I’ve just got to do it.…

  4. Knicks stars have good laugh at Heat’s tears

    Mar 7, 2011, 10:37 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Back in early July, when the Knicks had missed out on LeBron James and the Heat seemed to be forming a juggernaut, this day seemed a long way off. A day when Knicks stars Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, feeling confident after another big win, were having a laugh at the expense of the Heat…

  5. Will Lakers, Clippers oppose Kings relocation to Anaheim?

    Mar 7, 2011, 9:46 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Does the greater Los Angeles area really need more NBA teams than New Yorks has, and will have even after the Nets move to Brooklyn? More than Chicago? The Sacramento Kings are serious about a move to Anaheim and negotiations are ongoing. But according to Mitch Lawrence at the New York Post (via Eye On…

  6. Video: Zach Randolph drains the game winner to beat Mavs

    Mar 7, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Just moments before this play, Dirk Nowitzki hit what looked like the game-winning shot. But then Zach Randolph of the Grizzlies bested him. With a very Dirk-like shot — a high-arcing deep two pointer taken with a hand in his face. The shot Dirk has made a career out of. You can add Dallas to…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Andre Iguodala has got it going on. Again.

    Mar 7, 2011, 7:07 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, David Lee

    What you missed while staring at the earth’s two suns…. The Bulls beating the Heat and the Lakers thumping the Spurs were our two games of the day Sunday. In other action: Sixers 125, Warriors 117 (OT): Teams often exit Warriors games with gaudy statistics, so we’ll chalk Evan Turner’s 20 points up to that.…

  8. Chris Paul suffers concussion, leaves court on stretcher, but tests negative

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:19 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    That looked scary. It could have ended up much, much worse. In the third quarter us Sunday night Chris Paul drove the lane against the Cleveland Cavaliers, lost the ball, turned his head to find it as he slammed his head into the arm ad shoulders of Ramon Session. Paul collapsed to the floor and…

  9. Shaquille O’Neal now out “indefinitely”

    Mar 6, 2011, 10:35 PM EDT

    shaquille o'neal Celtics

    Shaquille O’Neal will be back in the Celtics lineup… sometime. Just as he was about to return from a right Achilles tendon injury, now he is having right foot soreness. Basically, the Celtics have stopped trying to guess when he will be back, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England. “He (O’Neal) worked out…

  10. Spoelstra makes mistake in saying Heat players cry after loss

    Mar 6, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat

    There is no crying in basketball. Well, there is, but we don’t really talk about it. Basketball is an emotional game. Well, it is if you care. So not for Andray Blatche most nights. But if you are invested — as any professional player should be — there will be wild emotional highs (we all…

  11. Lakers send message to Spurs (and anyone else watching)

    Mar 6, 2011, 7:10 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili

    Phil Jackson did not treat this like any other game. He spent extra time in film preparation for this game, according to ESPN Los Angeles’ Dave Miller (a former Hornet assistant coach). He sent Kobe Bryant back into the fourth quarter of a blowout, when Kobe usually has ice on his knees. With 3:11 left…

  12. What does another Miami Heat loss tell us? That Chicago is good.

    Mar 6, 2011, 4:45 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    For many this s going to be about Miami losing again in a close game against an elite team (87-86 to the Bulls). About the Heat players crying in the locker room afterward. About how the Heat are now 1-16 this season on shots to tie or win in the final 10 seconds of the…

  13. Facebook users like the NBA. A lot.

    Mar 6, 2011, 1:59 PM EDT

    NBA Facebook

    The NBA gets it. Twitter, Facebook, not ripping down videos off of YouTube. The NBA has embraced both the Web and social media. And that has put them light years ahead of the other major sports leagues in this arena. That was highlighted at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference (and reported at TrueHoop, who killed…

  14. Time to see if the Lakers have figured out the Spurs puzzle

    Mar 6, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan,  Kobe Bryant

    If it is not Lakers vs. Spurs in a May best-of-seven series to be the Western Conference champion, it will be a little disappointing. Sorry Mr. Cuban, Mr. Durant. It’s not personal, we do like you. You’re teams are entertaining and quite good. But Lakers/Spurs would match the two teams in the West best built…

  15. Video: Clippers Eric Bledsoe gets an and-one the hard way

    Mar 6, 2011, 10:33 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe Clippers

    We bring you a Clippers highlight that does not involve Blake Griffin. Or a car. With Baron Davis gone and Eric Gordon out — again — more is falling to rookie Eric Bledsoe. And he’s struggled to fill that role, as you would expect of a rookie. But he shows flashes. He plays hard. He’s…

  16. Pat Riley is not coming back, nor should he. So stop asking.

    Mar 6, 2011, 9:29 AM EDT

    Miami Heat Introduce LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade

    Yes, the Miami Heat have some problems. They have the surging Chicago Bulls ready to pass them for second in the East if the Bulls defeat the Heat Sunday in Miami. They have struggled against the league’s better teams and were embarrassingly lapped by the Spurs a few nights back. They are 14-17 against teams…

  17. Clippers Eric Gordon re-injures wrist, will miss games

    Mar 6, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon injured

    All the flashes going off every time Blake Griffin goes up for a dunk blinded people to the fact the Clippers desperately missed Eric Gordon. He was the outside balance to Griffin, and it was Gordon that was the Clippers leading scorer (23.7 a game). The Clippers had gone 4-14 after Gordon went down Jan.…

  18. Spurs keep winning, keep saying Lakers are team to beat

    Mar 5, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    I’m done believing the Spurs. I’m not alone on this bandwagon — “the Spurs are the best team in basketball” bandwagon. Just not the Spurs players. They keep saying the Lakers are the best, like they did again before the two teams face off Sunday. Look what they told Fran Blinebury of NBA.com. “They have…

  19. To win big, does a team need to lose big first?

    Mar 5, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets, Game 2

    It’s tough spot to be — right in the middle of the NBA pack. If you are the Indiana Pacers right now, or the Memphis Grizzlies, or a host of other teams, you are in a difficult spot. You’re good, probably good enough to make the playoffs but not really be a top three seed.…

  20. It’s official, Dwight Howard suspended game for 16th technical

    Mar 5, 2011, 5:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    We told you last night this was coming, today the NBA league office worked on Saturday to make it a reality. Dwight Howard has been suspended for Monday’s Magic game against the Trail Blazers after picking up his 16th technical foul this season, announced Stu Jackson, NBA Executive Vice President and disciplinarian. League rules call…
