  1. Another day, another thunderous Blake Griffin dunk

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    There is this buzz at Clippers games now — people know it is coming. At some point Blake Griffin is going to get behind the defense, the lob will go up higher than any human should be able to catch it and Griffin will get it and throw it down.  Every time he touches the…

  2. MRI confirms Deron Williams wrist just strained

    Feb 3, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Who knows when we’ll get to see Deron Williams back on the court, but at least the Jazz know there is nothing seriously wrong. Wrist specialist Dr. Steve Huish reviewed the MRI results and examined Williams and reached the same conclusion that the previous doctors had — it’s jut a strain, according to the Salt…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Cavaliers almost won one. Almost.

    Feb 3, 2011, 2:44 AM EDT

    Pacers Cavaliers Basketball

    What you missed while thinking about every move Nicolas Cage ever made… Pacers 117, Cavaliers 112: And we are at 22 losses in a row — but it was so, so close. This game was tied at 110-110 with just over a minute left. First the Pacers’ Darren Collison knocked down a three pointer. After…

    Joakim Noah said Wednesday night his hand is “coming along” and when asked for a timeline said he plans to return right after the All-Star break. Noah is traveling with the Bulls on the annual “ice show trip” — and if you saw the weather in Chicago you have at least one idea why he…

  5. Lakers’ Andrew Bynum likely to return Thursday against Spurs

    Feb 2, 2011, 11:40 PM EDT

    Image (1) bynum-thumb-250x176-5609.jpg for post 96

    See, we told you there was nothing to worry about. Why would you worry about Andrew Bynum’s knees? The center who missed last game with a bruised knee practiced (limited, but practiced) with the Lakers today and seems likely to go Thursday night against the Spurs, Phil Jackson told the Orange County Register. “He says…

  6. If Blake Griffin makes All-Star Game, expect him to miss Rookie Challenge

    Feb 2, 2011, 9:57 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Blake Griffin is on the bubble for being selected to play in the All-Star Game as a rookie (we have him in, but mostly for the entertainment factor). Everyone (including the Clippers) will find out Thursday. If he does make the cut to play the game in his home arena, expect him to skip out…

  7. Bucks Drew Gooden out 4-to-6 weeks with foot pain

    Feb 2, 2011, 9:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    The Bucks just cannot seem to catch a break. Or, they are catching too many breaks. Power forward Drew Gooden will be out for the next 4-to-6 weeks due to ongoing plantar fasciitis in his left foot, the team announced Gooden had missed the last six games (and 21 overall this season) due to this…

  8. Rick Fox dispenses gambling advice, would like 144 hard-boiled eggs

    Feb 2, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    Rick Fox

    Rick Fox won a few titles with the Lakers once upon a time, but since then, he’s been busy as a kind-of-sometimes actor. He had a nice little bit on HBO’s Oz back in the day. Did well in a cameo on the unfortunately canceled Party Down. There were also rumors that he appeared on…

  9. Old man game is winning in the NBA

    Feb 2, 2011, 6:54 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    In the NBA — like in society at large — we have this fascination with youth. Blake Griffin is a YouTube sensation. We all fall in love with the up-and-coming Oklahoma City Thunder. Fans obsess over draft picks. But what about the other end of the spectrum — who are the oldest teams in the…

  10. Thunder recall Cole Aldrich from the D-League

    Feb 2, 2011, 6:42 PM EDT

    Cole Aldrich

    The Oklahoma City Thunder have announced that they have recalled rookie center Cole Aldrich from the D-League. Aldrich was the 11th overall pick in the 2010 draft. He has appeared in seven games for the Thunder this season, and averaged 1 point and 1.9 rebounds per game. In 19 games with the Tulsa 66ers, Aldrich…

  11. Should the Bucks be playing at a faster pace?

    Feb 2, 2011, 5:56 PM EDT

    Scott Skiles

    Alex Boeder of BrewHoop thinks so: The Bucks have played 46 games. In their 23 fastest-paced games, they are 14-9. In their 23 slowest-paced games, they are 5-18. That’s a very interesting statistic, to say the least. Boeder goes on to point out that the Bucks are an excellent defensive team who rebound the ball…

  12. Learn the fundamentals of basketball with the one and only Matt Bonner!

    Feb 2, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Matt Bonner

    The NBA features many great teachers of the game. One could fill a book with notes of Kobe Bryant‘s footwork, or lessons of Luis Scola‘s infinite moves and counters in the post. Yet if asked to name the wisest of all the league’s fine instructors, the entire basketball world would cry out Matt Bonner’s name…

  13. How about Angry Larry Birds?

    Feb 2, 2011, 4:45 PM EDT

    Image (1) Larry_Bird-thumb-250x166-22068.jpg for post 6301

    Angry Birds is the crack of phone games. Completely addictive and you keep chasing the high of killing those pigs even when you know you should be working or talking to loved ones or paying attention to the road while driving. What would be better? Angry Larry Birds. On NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon…

  14. Agent denies report Ron Artest wouldn’t mind being traded

    Feb 2, 2011, 3:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 3:44 pm: In a predictable response, Ron Artest‘s agent denied that his client wants to be traded from the Lakers and told that to the Los Angeles Times Lakers blog. “Ron is not looking for a trade,” (David) Bauman said. “The frustration is there among everyone on the team. But Ron is a Laker,…

  15. Nowitzki says he’s not going to play in Germany. Unless…

    Feb 2, 2011, 3:43 PM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_nowitzki2_250.jpg for post 6235

    We told you it was a real long shot in the first place, but now Dirk Nowitzki has helped us out by throwing a little cold water on the idea of him playing in Germany. But like FIBA he left himself some wiggle room. Here is what Nowitzki told the Dallas Morning News: “If it’s…

  16. Deron Williams out again Wednesday, to see wrist specialist

    Feb 2, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    The Utah Jazz are not right without Deron Williams. No offense intended Earl Watson, but the offense is sluggish and sloppy with him out. If you’ve seen the Jazz without Williams, it has not been pretty (even if they have won two of three). It will not be pretty tonight either, when Williams misses a…

  17. You’re watching: NBA television ratings continue to rise

    Feb 2, 2011, 1:25 PM EDT

    TNT Set

    Maybe it’s LeBron James and the Heat. Maybe it’s traditional powers like the Lakers and Celtics being in the mix. Maybe it’s young stars like Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin. Maybe it’s having the Knicks relavent again in New York. Whatever it is, there is a real buzz around the NBA this season, and the…

  18. Brandon Bass could be out a while for Orlando

    Feb 2, 2011, 12:10 PM EDT

    basstradeblock

    Brandon Bass has stepped up this season — especially as a starter since the big trades — and been a solid part of the Magic front line. There aren’t a lot of points in the paint left or rebounds to grab when you play along side Dwight Howard, but Bass had averaged 11.6 points and…

  19. LeBron says he’s still motivated by Orlando’s summer comments

    Feb 2, 2011, 11:43 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    LeBron James and the Miami Heat have already played the Orlando Magic twice — but don’t think he has moved on from this summer’s snide comments by Orlando brass. LeBron’s comments yesterday showed he will be up for Thursday night’s meeting. “The simple fact that it’s a division opponent, that means a lot,” James said.…

  20. Kobe Bryant tells Pau Gasol to be the Black Swan

    Feb 2, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol is a lot of things. Skilled. Spanish. Intellectual. A good guy. But he often defers. When Kobe Bryant steps up his aggressive play, Gasol will fade back. That’s not what Kobe wants — he wants a true partner — so he explained it to Gasol is an intellectual (or at least pseudo-intellectual) way,…
