  1. NBA Playoffs: Dallas hits, Kobe misses and Mavs make it a series

    May 3, 2011, 3:10 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant missed shot

    Are these Dallas Mavericks different? Different than the team that falls short, that so many pundits thought didn’t know how to close, that was too old or too soft. The one that keeps getting smoked in the playoffs. Or was it just the Lakers having one of their patented lapses? Combined with Kobe missing a…

  2. NBA Playoffs: Atlanta shocks Chicago in Game 1

    May 3, 2011, 2:09 AM EST

    Joe Johnson, Jeff Teague

    It’s time to go back to the drawing board, NBA world. These Atlanta Hawks apparently aren’t ready to crumble under the Chicago Bulls’ might just yet, as the underdog club — predicted by most to win but a single game in this series (or less), and predicted by yours truly to be overrun by Derrick…

  3. Derrick Rose injures ankle on final play of game

    May 2, 2011, 11:51 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Seriously, there is a time — and a reason — to back off a little when the game is over. Soon to be MVP Derrick Rose showed why Tuesday night. Rose rolled his ankle on the final, meaningless possession of the Bulls 103-95 loss to the Hawks Tuesday. With seven seconds left and the Hawks…

  4. Report (we all believe): Derrick Rose to be named MVP Tuesday

    May 2, 2011, 10:17 PM EST

    derrick Rose bulls

    At this point even LeBron James‘ mom has accepted that Derrick Rose is going to be MVP. That announcement is going to officially come Tuesday, according to a Aggrey Sam at CSN Chicago. Rose was the engine of the offense of a Chicago Bulls team that won 62 games. Actually, that understates it. He was…

  5. Former Miss Michigan stabs Warriors guard Charlie Bell

    May 2, 2011, 9:54 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The former Miss Michigan wife of Golden State Warriors guard Charlie Bell has been charged with domestic abuse and assault with a dangerous weapon after stabbing the NBA player last weekend. The couple was back in Michigan when the incident occurred, according to Comcast Bay Area. Genessee County prosecutor David Leyton charged Bell’s wife Kenya…

  6. Pierce avoids suspension, but James Jones gets a flagrant

    May 2, 2011, 7:17 PM EST

    Celtics Pierce is ejected by NBA official Molloy as teammate Garnett looks on after an altercation during fourth quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in Miami

    So the NBA has watched the tape (well, digital recording) of Game 1 of the physical Boston/Miami series and has made a few changes. The biggest news is that Paul Pierce will not get a suspension, reports Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. Which is the only just move because he never should…

  7. David Stern says ball in Sacramento’s court now

    May 2, 2011, 6:07 PM EST

    David Stern

    Put up or shut up. David Stern is too much the diplomat to put it like that, but it was the gist of his comments in a Monday conference call discussing the decision by the Maloof brothers not to seek relocation from Sacramento to Anaheim. Couching everything in words of praise for Sacramento fans and…

  8. NBA Playoffs: With Hinrich out, Rose is set for an onslaught

    May 2, 2011, 6:01 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    Kirk Hinrich is doubtful to play at all in the Atlanta Hawks’ series against the Chicago Bulls. As such, the Hawks are doubtful to even remain competitive in the series that will surely spell their playoff end. I hate to foretell a team’s postseason demise in such certain terms, but Hinrich’s absence makes it easy;…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Dallas, Los Angeles finally meet in postseason

    May 2, 2011, 5:04 PM EST

    Phil Jackson Tyson Chandler

    Seriously, how has this not happened before? The Dallas Mavericks have been to the playoffs 11 consecutive years reaching all the NBA finals one time. The Lakers have been the Lakers in that same time, having been one of the most dominant teams in the NBA. Yet there has been no playoff meetings between these…

  10. Anaheim may never get an NBA team thanks to Lakers

    May 2, 2011, 3:33 PM EST

    Not to deflate the mood on what should be a day of celebration in Sacramento, but it is quite possible that a year from now Kings fans will lose their battle to keep the Kings in Sacramento. If efforts to get a new arena built fall short — and if public money is required it…

  11. You’re watching — big television ratings jump in playoffs

    May 2, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Every time I get one of these stories, the stupidity of a long lockout hits me even harder. All the networks carrying first-round playoff games saw a huge bump in television ratings, as reported at the Washington Examiner (via Ball Don’t Lie). It got a hold of TNT’s rating numbers and… damn. This was the…

  12. Popovich: Don’t expect big changes to San Antonio

    May 2, 2011, 2:35 PM EST

    Tim Duncan

    That one hurt. Spurs fans have brushed off the whole “the Spurs are dead” talk, but the first round loss to the Grizzlies after a 61-win regular season made it feel real. The way the Grizzlies were more physical made it real. So, now what San Antonio? Gregg Popovich told the Express-News Spurs blog not…

  13. What turf toe? Boozer to play in Game 1 against Hawks.

    May 2, 2011, 1:26 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    Turf toe hurts. A lot. But Carlos Boozer plans to play through it and will be on the court when the Bulls start their second round playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks Monday night at the United Center. That according to Aggrey Sam with CSN Chicago. “The toe is feeling a lot better. I’ve got…

  14. Owners confirm Kings staying in Sacramento

    May 2, 2011, 1:04 PM EST

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    UPDATE #2, 1:04 pm: Here is what George Maloof told the Associated Press. “The mayor of Sacramento has told the NBA relocation committee that he will have a plan for a new arena within a year,” Maloof said Monday. “If not, the team will be relocated to another city…. “I think it’s the fair thing…

  15. Sacramento gets to keep Kings for now, but new building key

    May 2, 2011, 12:52 PM EST

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    Champaign corks should be popping. Horns should be honking in downtown as people in cars shout “here we stay.” There should be spontaneous parties in the street. Bloggers should hug mainstream newspaper writers. The Kings are staying in Sacramento. That is fantastic news — this is a market that has proven it will wholeheartedly supported…

  16. Durant thinks Zach Randolph is the best. Randolph agrees.

    May 2, 2011, 11:09 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    There was a lot of Zach Randolph love after he tore up the Oklahoma City Thunder Sunday just like he had done the San Antonio Spurs the weeks before. (Maybe that Duncan guy isn’t so old…) Randolph was the expected monster inside, but he also was 5-of-8 from the midrange — he (and Marc Gasol)…

  17. Brandon Roy wants to be a starter again for Portland

    May 2, 2011, 10:19 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    There is no “Sixth Man of the Playoffs” award, but if there were Brandon Roy would be the frontrunner. He was a game changer for the Trail Blazers off the pine, especially in Game 4 when he had a quarter for the ages that pulled his struggling team up and evened the series (even if…

  18. No news as deadline passes on Knicks Walsh, which is good actually

    May 2, 2011, 9:47 AM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    From our “no news is good news” file… The deadline for Knicks owner James Dolan to pick up the option year on team president Donnie Walsh’s contract came and went Saturday without a word out of Madison Square Garden. Which is actually a good thing, the New York Post says (and when was the last…

  19. Video: LeBron dunk highlights how Heat beat Boston

    May 2, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game One

    This was one of the highlight plays in Miami’s win over Boston. But LeBron James ally-oop dunk was also a clever little play breaking down Boston’s half court defense. What Boston does is overload the strong side — in this case when Dwyane Wade comes off Chris Bosh‘s high screen Rajon Rondo sticks with him,…

  20. CSN Report: Kings to stay in Sacramento

    May 2, 2011, 1:20 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Monday both the NBA and the Maloof brothers will announced that the Kings will remain in Sacramento for another season, CSN California reports. A source close to the discussions tells Comcast SportsNet that the NBA has told the Maloofs to expect the Kings to stay in Sacramento next year. The NBA is expected to put…
