    Mar 21, 2011, 11:28 AM EST

    Chase Budinger

    Chase Budinger, who has been the Rockets starter at the three since Shane Battier went walking in Memphis, will be out likely a week with a sprained ankle, the Houston Chronicle reports. It happened in the second quarter against the Utah Jazz Sunday, where he was driving and Paul Milsap was defending and Bundinger just…

  2. Nowitzki probably to play for Germany this summer

    Mar 21, 2011, 11:03 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Washington Wizards

    Two things we know are going to happen this summer: 1) There is going to be a lockout (sorry folks, but it is happening). 2) Germany is going to be trying to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. That’s leading Dirk Nowitzki to think about helping his nation qualify for the games, he told the…

    Apple Unveils iPad 2

    One thing that has become ubiquitous in NBA locker rooms and around players — iPads. Out West, seeds five through 11 are within five games of each other. Here’s a breakdown on who has the advantage. A Sacramento PR man is urging a boycott of an April 1 Kings game in protest of the team’s…

  4. ‘Melo says it might be next season before Knicks jell

    Mar 21, 2011, 10:02 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    In case you missed it Sunday, the Knicks two superstars playing in the vaunted “seven seconds of less” offense managed to put up just 9 points in the first quarter Sunday against the Bucks. Then, while they put up 32 in the next quarter, the Knicks went on to lose the game. Carmelo Anthony told…

  5. Grizzlies, Zach Randolph in “serious” contract talks

    Mar 21, 2011, 9:20 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Memphis Grizzlies

    Some of the best teams in he West would like to avoid the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the playoff because Memphis has one of the biggest, most dangerous front lines in basketball with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol. Two guys who just happen to be free agents this summer (although Gasol is…

  6. Video: Roddy Beaubois brings a little flair to Dallas

    Mar 21, 2011, 8:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v New Orleans Hornets

    Roddy Beaubois is starting to find a groove, getting his minutes up and looking more comfortable. Which is a good thing for the Mavericks. And he’s still got that flair Dallas needs. As evidence, we bring you a highlight from Dallas’ route of Golden State Sunday. Enjoy.

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Carmelo Anthony was better but the Knicks were not

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:29 AM EST

    Chauncey Billups

    What you missed while thinking the Big East was overrated… Bucks 100, Knicks 95: Just when you thought things really could not get uglier for the Knick, we bring you the start to Sunday’s game. New York was dismal in the first quarter putting up just 9 points and shooting just 16 percent — the…

  8. Blake Griffin fouls out in spectacular fashion

    Mar 20, 2011, 10:32 PM EST

    blake-griffin-gortat

    Late in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ Sunday afternoon game against the Suns, Blake Griffin absolutely posterized Marcin Gortat. Taking off from the middle of lane, Griffin skied so high over the seven-footer that he literally threw the ball down into the basket to finish the play. NBA.com has the video, which you need…

  9. Bulls sign Jannero Pargo, John Lucas as insurance

    Mar 20, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls had a couple of roster spots open, so they filled them Sunday with a couple of point guards just to have some practice depth behind Derrick Rose. Veteran journeyman Jannero Pargo (who was with the Bulls last season) and John Lucas III (who has been with the Bulls on a 10-day contract…

  10. Kevin Love leaves game with groin injury, does not return

    Mar 20, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love was jinxed by his own team. Before the game, Love was honored by the Timberwolves and owner Glen Taylor for his 53-game double-double streak. Then he came out and had no points and just 3 rebounds in his first 14 minutes. Then he injured his groin and had to leave the game, not…

  11. Heat’s Mario Chalmers MRI shows sprained knee, out 2 weeks

    Mar 20, 2011, 4:43 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    When teammates had to help him off the court Saturday night, it looked like it could be much worse. So the news that Miami starting point guard Mario Chalmers will be out two weeks with a sprained knee, while not good, is not what many feared after he went down. Chalmers had an MRI Sunday…

  12. Lakers Bynum suspended two games for flagrant foul

    Mar 20, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum’s flagrant foul on Minnesota’s Michael Beasley has led to a two game suspension by the league, one of the harshest penalties this season. We told you about Bynum being ejected Friday night, and he deserved to be tossed. Bynum was late on his rotation (not that Matt Barnes did a lot to slow…

  13. Sixth man of the year, Lamar Odom or Jason Terry?

    Mar 20, 2011, 2:22 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    With a month to go, it looks like the sixth man of the year is a two-man race: Jason Terry and Lamar Odom. Glen “Big Baby” Davis, George Hill and the often over looked Thaddeus Young of the Sixers deserve some votes, some consideration. But they are all a step behind your two leaders. So…

  14. Larry Brown now talking about return to college coaching

    Mar 20, 2011, 12:28 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    You’d think Larry Brown’s time as an NBA coach is done after leaving Charlotte earlier this season, but can you really ever underestimate a front office bringing in a guy off the coaching carousel? I think some teams probably made calls to see if Cotton Fitzsimmons was available this summer. But Larry Brown isn’t waiting…

  15. Stoudemire wants return to D’Antoni offense after Knicks struggles

    Mar 20, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    At first, we took it as a sign that Mike D’Antoni was not a rigid, my-way-or-the-highway coach. He adjusted his system, putting in more isolatons and post up plays and scaling back some on the up-tempo, pick-and-roll offense. Except, it’s not really working. The team is struggling, and that includes an ugly loss to the…

  16. Blake Griffin’s trio of slam dunks

    Mar 20, 2011, 10:30 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, J.J. Hickson

    Blake Griffin was flying high and throwing it down with authority again Saturday afternoon at Staples Center. We’re not going to hold it against him that the dunks came against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They still count. And you NCAA fans can imagine how good Oklahoma would be if Blake Griffin were in his senior season…

  17. Heat come out of big test with incomplete grade

    Mar 20, 2011, 9:31 AM EST

    LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Miami Heat

    This was to be the big test. We were going to finally really figure some things out about the Miami Heat. They had 11 consecutive games against quality teams – every one of them headed to the playoffs. Plenty of contenders in the mix. Finally we would see the Heat against the best. They finished…

  18. Rondo admits to injured hand during slump, re-aggravates it

    Mar 20, 2011, 8:03 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    And now we know what has been going on. During Rajon Rondo’s two-week slump he has been battling an injury to the pinky finger on his right hand — that’s his shooting hand — he admitted to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England. Rondo has shot 37.8 percent in his last 10 games because…

  19. Kings waive Luther Head; Nets sign Sundiata Gaines

    Mar 19, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Sundiata Gaines Nets

    Because on a Saturday night, rather than heading to the local pub with your friends for some curry and chips and a nice pint (wait, what is this, London?) you were searching the Web for minor basketball transactions. That’s why were hear for you. First, the Kings have waived guard Luther Head, according to CSN…

  20. Stumbling to the playoffs in the East

    Mar 19, 2011, 8:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    Interesting post put up at Hoopdata, simply looking at playoff team’s records since the All-Star Break (coming into Saturday’s games). What you notice is some team’s stumbling to the finish line in the East. Chicago 11-3 Philadelphia 10-4 Boston 8-5 Orlando 8-5 New York 7-7 Miami 6-7 Indiana 6-9 Atlanta 5-9 We knew the Bulls…
