  1. NBA Power Rankings, ones that will make Mark Cuban smile

    Dec 6, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    Our weekly NBA Power Rankings. Dallas, Boston and Denver all on seven-games or longer winning streaks… and the Knicks could join them this week. 1. Mavericks (16-4). Winners of nine in a row, they are getting fantastic play from Tyson Chandler and Jason Kidd… which makes you wonder if they can keep it up as…

  2. George Karl to go for 1,000th win Tuesday in Charlotte

    Right now, six coaches in NBA history have had 1,000 or more wins —Lenny Wilkens, Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Pat Riley, Jerry Sloan and Phil Jackson. Elite coaches. Soon that will be seven, as George Karl stands at 999 and ready to walk through that door. He told FanHouse he’s not convinced he belongs. “There’s…

  3. Heat’s struggles against good teams meaningless come playoffs

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    At some point, the Miami Heat are going to have to consistently beat very good teams to reach their goal. That point is in May. Nearly six months from now. Right now, the Heat’s much publicized 3-7 record against teams over .500 is pretty meaningless as a predictor of future success. The Heat team that…

  4. As expected, Sixers deny rumors they are shopping Iguodala

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Philadelphia 76ers

    This was expected. Like the baseball Hall of Fame snubbing Marvin Miller or Brett Favre looking old, there are some things you just know are going to happen in sports. So when the rumors surfaced that the Sixers are shopping Andre Iguodala around, you knew the denial was not far behind. It wasn’t, and Phillyburbs.com…

  5. Knicks looking for low-cost backup for Raymond Felton

    Dec 6, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Raymond Felton

    Raymond Felton is averaging 38.1 minutes a game. That’s a lot of run, particularly on a team that wants to run. So the Knicks have started looking for a backup PG they can trust, according to Jonathan Abrams at the New York Times. The Knicks have made inquiries to other teams about acquiring a low-cost…

  6. Kevin Garnett hints if there is a lockout he could walk away

    Dec 6, 2010, 10:09 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal

    Kevin Garnett has two years left on his contract, this season and $21 million next season. But what if there is no next season? Not likely, but with a looming lockout it’s possible. There are some owners pushing for a hard line and major changes to NBA finances, which could lead to a doomsday scenario.…

  7. Blazers president, players back Nate McMillan

    Dec 6, 2010, 9:38 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Portland Trail Blazers

    It doesn’t sound like Nate McMillan is going anywhere. After a weekend of speculation that Nate McMillan’s seat was getting warm after a slow start for the Trail Blazers and a recent six-game losing streak, team president Larry Miller threw water on that fire. Miller went on 95.5 FM in Portland’s pregame show and sounded…

  8. What is going on with Ron Artest?

    Dec 6, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Twice last week, when the Lakers needed a bucket at the end of the game, the ball ended up in the hands of Ron Artest. And he missed. It seemed fitting, because Artest has not seemed himself — however you wish to define that — lately.  This was the guy was the Lakers MVP of…

  9. Video to start your week — Top 10 Dunks of November

    Is there a better way to start your week than that cup of coffee and videos of Andre Iguodala, Blake Griffin and Russell Westbrook making posters? No, of course there isn’t. We’ll, unless you’ve got a nice bagel to go with it. Either way, enjoy.

  10. Baseline to Baseline Weekend Edition: Knicks Gone Wild

    What you missed this weekend while worrying that your extra virgin olive oil isn’t such a virgin… Celtics 104 Bulls 92 (Friday): I know the Bulls thought they were an elite team. The Celtics, however, are currently the only Eastern team (and maybe the only NBA team) at that level right now. If we’re looking…

  11. Nate McMillan admits he may not be reaching Blazers, a step on the road to unemployment

    Dec 5, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Portland Trail Blazers - Game 6

    Sunday night the Blazers are getting healthy at the expense of the Los Angeles Clippers, which is a good team to get healthy against. It will snap a six-game losing streak that has seen some ugly play out a Blazers team many thought would rebound this season. There are injury issues in Portland — Gregg…

  12. Eddy Curry healthy enough to play, D’Antoni smart enough not to

    Dec 5, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    ecurry_beard

    The New York Knicks could use some more scoring and defensive presence in the paint — Ronny Turiaf has been in and out of the lineup with injuries, and Timofey Mozgov is still learning how to do more than just pick up fouls in the NBA. Well, there is Eddy Curry…. He is healthy enough…

  13. Wolves Anthony Tolliver out for “a while” with sprained knee

    Anthony Tolliver — the guy better known as “why are they playing him and not Kevin Love more?” — will be out for “a while” with a sprained right knee, the team announced. He will get another evaluation on Monday that may give us a better timeline for his return. He sprained it Friday night…

  14. League takeover of Hornets to come by Wednesday

    Dec 5, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    It comes down to this: owner George Shinn is out of money he will spend to run the New Orleans Hornets and he can’t find a buyer. The league is going to step in and step in soon — both ESPN and Sports Illustrated are reporting the league could take over operations of the team…

  15. Report: Sixers are shopping Andre Iguodala

    Dec 5, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    Andre Iguodala is prepared for it. Now it appears to be happening. Slowly. The Ohio Morning Journal reports that the Sixers are shopping the wingman around. That would not be a shock to anyone, but the Sixers have been publically mum on the idea (or said it’s not happening), especially as they have won three…

  16. Rajon Rondo’s rare feat: averaging more assists than points

    Dec 5, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo sat out today against the New Jersey Nets, his hamstring still sore and the team wanting to play it safe. Why safe? Because Rondo is having a historic season. So far, Rondo is averaging 14.1 assists and 11.4 points per game, orchestrating a more balanced Celtics attack. In a great note at the…

  17. Report: NBA taps NHL executive to run Hornets

    Dec 5, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    new-orleans-hornets logo

    We told you yesterday that the sale of the New Orleans Hornets fell through — in part possibly because of the impending lockout — which has left the NBA with the unenviable task of taking over running the team until a new owner can be found. The takeover is apparently going to happen soon —…

  18. LeBron James, Daniel Gibson still BFFs, or something

    Dec 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    After the Heat were done wiping the floor with the Cleveland Cavaliers Thursday night, some things were said. Daniel Gibson used to be tight with LeBron James but he said some things afterwards that made it sound like they wouldn’t be sharing any text messages about the latest episode of Glee, or whatever it is…

  19. Grizzlies waive Acie Law

    Dec 5, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Acie Law Ricardo Marsh

    Acie Law was a lottery pick, No. 11 overall, a smart and crafty player coming out of Texas A&M that seemed well suited to running an NBA team from the point. Not the most explosive guy, but he showed an ability to get to the rim and then kick out to open teammates. It hasn’t…

  20. If you’re going to foul Andre Iguodala, do it right

    Dec 5, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala is one of the league’s better finishers on the break. With that in mind, note to Gerald Wallace — if you’re going to foul him to prevent the dunk, wrap him up early. Because if you just kind of push Iguodala once he’s in the air you’re going to end up on a…
