    Mar 10, 2011, 5:53 PM EDT

    Paul_Chris

    According to the Associated Press, New Orleans guard Chris Paul is back at practice, but has not yet been cleared to play. Paul suffered a mild concussion last Sunday, and is scheduled to undergo a neurological exam on Friday. Paul’s injury puts the Hornets in a tight spot. The dangers of playing with concussions are…

  2. Video highlights from the Lakers winning streak

    Mar 10, 2011, 4:14 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Don’t know if you’ve heard this, but the Lakers have won eight in a row… what, that got mentioned in the media already? They’re doing it with defense… that got mentioned too? Andrew Bynum? Kobe as facilitator? Lamar Odom is still very tall? All talked about already… Well then, just watch some video highlights. There’s…

  3. Pau Gasol can feel Chris Bosh’s pain

    Mar 10, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    nba_bosh_gasol_576

    Chris Bosh wants the ball more. And he wants to be on the low block, not the elbow. He’s shooting more jumpers than ever before and he wants some shots at the rim. But also he wants some key touches go get in the flow of the game, not to be the guy watching Dwyane…

  4. Bulls coach says Carlos Boozer out a few days to a week

    Mar 10, 2011, 3:13 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer injured

    Carlos Boozer had some swelling in his ankle and will be out a few days to a week, according to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. He is officially listed as day-to-day. That is the official line (as tweeted by K.C. Jones of the Chicago Tribune and Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald). Aggrey Sam of CSN…

  5. Lakers at Heat: Five things to watch

    Mar 10, 2011, 2:44 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Miami wants Christmas in March. The Heat’s Christmas Day beat down of the Lakers was their signature win of the season. A few months later the Heat are just desperate for any win. Getting one against the Lakers would be that much more sweet. But to the dismay of the Heat and four-year-olds everywhere, Christmas…

  6. David Stern sends not so subtle message to Stan Van Gundy

    Mar 10, 2011, 2:03 PM EDT

    David Stern Press Conference

    Stan Van Gundy called NBA Commissioner David Stern a dictator. In so many words. He said Stern does not allow a diversity of opinions or people to express their thoughts. Stern is not amused. Hence his comments on ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd show Thursday. “I would just render a guess that we’re not going to…

  7. Dallas coach calls players “soft,” Jason Terry not too fond of that

    Mar 10, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Brown

    If you tuned out last night with Dallas up 7 and one minute to go, you missed one epic collapse. Just the fact the Hornets got three offensive rebounds in the final minute — not to mention 8 straight points — to get the win should tell you how Dallas played. How they lost to…

  8. This car dunk blows Blake Griffin’s away

    Mar 10, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    We all know it, the Blake Griffin car dunk was style over substance. Sizzle not steak. Jessica Alba to Scarlett Johansson. (Hey, Scarlett can actually act.) Well meet Guy Dupey, part of the And1 crew. He pulled off this car dunk in Poland that blows Griffin’s away. This my friends is steak with the sizzle. Blake,…

  9. Kobe on how the Lakers, Heat losing streaks are different

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:53 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Don’t know if you heard, but the Heat have lost five in a row. I think that made the news somewhere. Just like it did earlier this season when the Lakers lost four in a row. Or three in a row two other times. Now the Lakers have won 8 in a row heading into…

  10. Michael Jordan says Derrick Rose is the MVP

    Mar 10, 2011, 11:18 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    Well, that’s about as big an endorsement as you can get. The five time MVP. The guy with the statue outside the United Center. The one and only Michael Jordan says that Derrick Rose is the MVP, according to ESPN Chicago. “MVP of the season,” Jordan said about Rose after the Bulls’ 101-84 win over…

  11. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Mar 10, 2011, 10:48 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Did the Heat cry last night? An exhaustive breakdown of the Heat’s late-game failures. The conclusion: The Heat keep putting themselves in positions to fail, so they fail. It’s about the fundamentals — not holding a box out cost the Raptors a win. The Bulls are hot again in Chicago — the win over the…

  12. Kevin Love makes it dramatic in setting modern double-double record

    Mar 10, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love has made double-doubles automatic. He’s taken the drama out of getting them. So he added a little drama himself Wednesday by almost not playing due to a sore knee (he banged knees with an opponent last game and it swelled up), then playing with a balky brace on it. Didn’t matter. He got…

  13. Pat Riley says to “write off” idea he’ll replace Spoelstra

    Mar 10, 2011, 9:44 AM EDT

    Super Bowl XLIV

    Some people are not going to believe him. In part because he canned a guy in a situation like this before. In part because some want it to be true. But Pat Riley is not going to fire Erik Spoelstra and take over the team. Riley (and apparently half the NBA scouting fraternity) was at…

  14. Video: Wednesday night game winners (all in one place)

    Mar 10, 2011, 8:14 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What a night. Carmelo Anthony had the big shot to win it, Kevin Durant hit the big one to send it to overtime (where the Thunder won). Dirk Nowitzki missed his chance to joint them. The Jazz got one lucky tip in to get their win. It was a wild night of buzzer-beater finishes around…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Game winners everywhere, but the Clippers don’t need one

    Mar 10, 2011, 4:53 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Mo Williams

    What you missed while trying to recreate the movie “Up”… Clippers 108, Celtics 103: Boston had a plan — Blake Griffin was not going to beat them. It’s one thing that Boston’s defense has done well in this “big three era” — take away an opponent’s favorite option (sometimes two or three). Griffin was swarmed…

  16. Video: Boozer leaves game after fall; team says ankle sprain, X-rays negative

    Mar 9, 2011, 11:45 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer injured

    UPDATE 11:45 pm: Looks like we’re going to have to wait until Thursday for any definitive answers on Boozer’s leg. Here is what coach Tom Thibodeau told the Associated Press after the game: “X-ray was negative and we’ll have to wait and see (Thursday) what type of swelling he has,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. 10:33…

  17. Video: Blake Griffin goes Mars Blackmon to help USC tight end

    Mar 9, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    USC tight end Jordan Cameron is like a lot of college football players right now — trying to get notice by scouts, to move up the draft board. He’s a gifted athlete — he played a couple of years of basketball at BYU, went to a juco then went to USC where he played a…

  18. Appreciating Ryan Anderson and in turn, Stan Van Gundy

    Mar 9, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    Lost in the Rashard Lewis-Gilbert Arenas shuffle was an interesting development: Ryan Anderson, a young player (though one not exactly exploding with potential) still on his rookie deal, had a ready-made offensive game that could essentially make Lewis replaceable. Anderson isn’t capable of matching all of Lewis’ strengths — he still has a ways to…

  19. Damion James diagnosed with Grade 1 concussion, will miss two games

    Mar 9, 2011, 5:42 PM EDT

    nets-hawks

    It’s a good thing that the NBA appeares to be taking concussions very seriously, because head trauma has become a prevalent theme in recent weeks. The latest victim: New Jersey Nets rookie Damion James, who suffered a serious, Grade 1 concussion that will keep him sidelined for a few games. From Conor Orr of the…

  20. Mark Cuban has an eye on Ricky Rubio

    Mar 9, 2011, 4:55 PM EDT

    Spain v USA

    Ricky Rubio’s NBA relevance has gone from YouTube sensation to fanboy whimsy to actual draft pick to mythical figure, all with only one real constant: for all of the hype and criticism alike, Rubio has yet to play a single NBA game. It’s incredibly unclear when that might change, and if Rubio’s situation wasn’t tenuous…
