  1. Video: Carmelo Anthony’s game winner over Danny Granger

    Apr 11, 2011, 9:29 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Did the Knicks want the play Miami more than Boston in the first round? If so, this shot pretty much ruined. New York’s win and Boston’s loss means these two are almost certainly on a collision course, and Boston’s size will be a big challenge for the Knicks. But that doesn’t make this shot any…

  2. Playoff seedings: The West is still a mess

    Apr 11, 2011, 8:50 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    In these uncertain times, we know a couple things for sure. We know Chicago will win the Eastern Conference and take on the Indiana Pacers in the first round. We know Orlando will host Atlanta in another first-round matchup. We know the Spurs are the top team in the West. After that, we’ve got no…

    Monta Ellis injured

    Monta Ellis took a hard fall Sunday night late in the fourth quarter of the Warriors loss to Sacramento, in doing so he banged his head. He was unable to shoot the free throws he was owed, left the game and eventually was taken to an area hospital for further oberservations, according to Matt Steinmetz…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Start thinking Knicks vs. Celtics in the first round

    Apr 11, 2011, 1:57 AM EST

    Danny Granger, Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while avoiding the torpedo of truth…. The Miami Heat proving they can beat Boston (at least once) and the Bulls slipping past the Magic were our Games of the Day. Knicks 110, Pacers 109: Carmelo Anthony! Hold on, we’ll get back to him in a minute. Plenty of fans (and you can…

  5. Quote of the Day: Doc Rivers’ kids are avoiding him

    Apr 10, 2011, 9:53 PM EST

    Doc Rivers

    Man after looking at this Boston heat score…when my dad comes home I’m going to stay my a** upstairs! He might be a little grumpy! Lol —Tweet from Austin Rivers, Duke-bound prep hoops star and son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers. My advice to Austin, don’t bring up the Kendrick Perkins trade for a…

  6. Heat exorcise some demons in win over Celtics

    Apr 10, 2011, 7:06 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Let’s get this out of the way for the Boston faithful. The season series? Already went to the Celtics 3-0. The Celtics still have a good shot at the second seed and homecourt advantage in the second round. It was a mid-April game in the last week of the regular season for a Boston team…

  7. Bulls barely, and we mean barely edge Magic without Dwight Howard

    Apr 10, 2011, 4:22 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Orlando Magic

    Bulls 102 Magic 99. This was a fantastic ballgame that will be overshadowed by narratives about the MVP. The questions will be about how the Magic nearly beat the Bulls with Dwight Howard spending a one-game suspension for hitting 18 techs, and what that says about Howard’s MVP candidacy. The other side will respond with…

  8. Don’t ask J.R. Smith about his minutes-played bonus

    Apr 10, 2011, 1:46 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    J. R. Smith’s got to be pretty happy with his season overall. He went from trade bait to a key contributor on one of the hottest teams in the league. He’s considered a leader on a relatively young team, and may be the X-factor that could help Denver to a first-round upset. But he’s still…

  9. Jason Terry is not sorry about sideline spat with Carlisle, Barea

    Apr 10, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks

    Jason Terry became so upset at a miscommunication on Friday night with J.J. Barea that he had a verbal confrontation with Barea and his coach during a timeout. The result was Rick Carlisle sending Terry to the end of the bench and keeping him there while the Mavericks made a comeback. On Saturday, they addressed…

  10. Ty Lawson drops a dime… of 3-pointers

    Apr 10, 2011, 9:30 AM EST

    Lawson_Ty

    Ty Lawson was a name that was talked about as a “future asset” for the Nuggets during the Melo trade stuff. He could be pretty good as a starter, was the thought. He made losing Billups acceptable. And while Lawson has shown that he’s worthy of being a piece of the puzzle, he hadn’t had…

  11. Might Hawks Josh Smith cost coach Larry Drew his job?

    Apr 9, 2011, 11:22 PM EST

    Larry Drew and Josh Smith

    The Atlanta Hawks got their heads handed to them Saturday night by the Washington Wizards. A 32-point beatdown. That would be loss number four in a row. They are stumbling toward the playoffs, and this is not a team anybody has seen flip the switch. The last two of those losses were without Josh Smith…

  12. Nets Humphries done for season, Lopez may have surgery after it

    Apr 9, 2011, 9:16 PM EST

    Kris Humphries

    Just wanted to update you on the health of your favorite New Jersey Nets… no, not Deron Williams. The other two you like. Sure, there are another two. The Nets are shutting down Kris Humphries for the season, proving that the Kardashian Effect is not all-powerful. Nets coach Avery Johnson explained all to the Star-Ledger.…

  13. If the Heat can’t beat the Celtics now, they’re never going to

    Apr 9, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Okay, Miami Heat. You lost to the Celtics in the season opener. You lost to the Celtics at home. You lost to the Celtics after you’d supposedly gotten everything figured out. This your last chance. And it’s a good one. The Heat are in a no-win situation here. They beat the Celtics on Sunday in…

  14. “Just wait until Shaq gets back” is legitimate argument for Boston

    Apr 9, 2011, 5:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    The Chicago Bulls made their statement Thursday. Right now, the Bulls are the better team. If Thursday had been Game 1 of a seven-game series the Celtics would be in trouble. After the game, Kevin Garnett talked about Boston having another gear for the playoffs. Their fans are counting on that. That those days off…

  15. Joe Dumars is safe from new management

    Detroit Pistons Introduce John Kuester

    Now that the Pistons are safely in the hands of Mr. Tom Gores (pending NBA approval), the team can finally move forward. But what does that mean for the management and coaching? The Detroit Free Press reports that the architect of the 2004 championship team and the team that made about a billion Conference Finals…

  16. The Lakers have nary a care for the end of the regular season

    Apr 9, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Derek Fisher

    The Lakers lost their fourth game in a row Friday night to a 93-86 decision against the Blazers. It wound up with a decent point differential but the truth is the game was much more of a blowout. A late Lakers run with bench players made it seem easier, but in reality, the Lakers gave…

  17. Report: Kyrie Irving won’t fall past Wolves, if he falls at all

    Apr 9, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    Arizona v Duke

    The 2011 draft class doesn’t bowl you over with names. It’s considered one of the weakest in years. But all that does is make Kyrie Irving look like more of a sure thing. The Duke freshman is widely considered the top overall player in the draft and has been seen as such since he dazzled…

  18. Memphis returns to the playoffs for the first time since 2006

    Apr 9, 2011, 9:30 AM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Memphis Grizzlies

    Paint the town blue. Memphis is back in the second season. The Grizzlies clinched a playoff spot on Friday night with a win over the Kings. It wasn’t easy, with the Kings continuing their plucky play of late led by Marcus Thornton and Tyreke Evans. Those two on the break together is a terrifying combination.…

  19. Chicago Bulls wrap up top seed by knocking off last year’s top seed

    Apr 8, 2011, 11:33 PM EST

    photos

    One year ago, it was the Cleveland Cavaliers that were the East’s top seed (and had the league’s best record). The Cavs were considered a threat to win it all. The Bulls were struggling along at .500, with more talk about free agent plans than second round plans. Things can change a lot in a…

  20. Sonics fans kicked out of Howard Schultz book signing

    Apr 8, 2011, 9:02 PM EST

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    Howard Schultz still doesn’t get it. Not even close. We need some background here, just to get everyone up to speed. Schultz is the CEO of Starbucks, so I’m already ticked at him about the whole Peet’s thing. But that’s my issue, he has bigger sins. Like buying the Sonics then in 2006 — with…
