  1. If you push Blake Griffin, the Clippers are pushing back

    Jan 18, 2011, 5:42 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    Opposing teams have been trying to knock Blake Griffin off his game. Literally. As Griffin has emerged as an NBA star and powerhouse offensive force, other teams have started to combat his physical presence with some physical play of their own. Teams have been trying to push Griffin around. The Clippers noticed and as a…

  2. Joakim Noah may be back earlier than expected

    Maybe, finally, the Bulls will get healthy. Joakim Noah gets the pins out his thumb next week (things that sound painful include…) and he says on Bulls.com he hopes to be back sooner rather than later. The original planned return date was late February (right after the All-Star Game) but things may happen earlier. “I’m…

  3. Shocking: Blazers get good injury news. Marcus Camby’s MRI negative. But hold on…

    Jan 18, 2011, 3:33 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Things you thought you’d never see have come to pass — good injury-related news for the Trail Blazers. What’s next? Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria! Marcus Camby…

  4. Lockout could cost $1 billion in television ad revenue. Billion. With a “B.”

    Jan 18, 2011, 2:56 PM EST

    NBA TNT Barkley

    You think you don’t want a lockout because you don’t want to miss Kwame Brown getting to shoot more, imagine how much the suits at ABC/ESPN and Turner Broadcasting (TNT) are dreading it. A lockout could cost $1 billion in ad revenue, according to Ad Age (via the legendary Nate Jones). That is billion. As…

  5. League to rescind one Rondo assist from Monday — because it wasn’t

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:54 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo had 13 assists on the score sheet after the Celtics won in dramatic fashion over the Magic on Monday… except he only really had 12. Zach Lowe of Sports Illustrated pointed it out this morning (caught first by Mark at Sham Sports): On the Celtics first play of the game Monday night Rondo…

  6. Paul Silas is crazy — he wants Kwame Brown to shoot

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:26 PM EST

    Kwame Brown layup

    Phil Jackson got about as much production as anyone has out of Kwame Brown when he was with the Lakers. He did it by limiting his role — focus only on rebounding and defense in the paint. Don’t shoot unless it’s a dunk. Stay out of Kobe’s way. Pretty much every coach Brown has had…

  7. Bosh out; LeBron and Wade likely in for Heat Tuesday

    Jan 18, 2011, 1:04 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    Chris Bosh is out for the Miami Heat Tuesday night against the Hawks, the result of a sprained ankle suffered against the Bulls. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are officially game time decisions, neither took part in shootaround, but according to a tweet from our own Ira Winderman (of the Sun Sentinel) both are expected…

  8. Carmelo Anthony says there will be a lockout “without a doubt”

    Jan 18, 2011, 12:19 PM EST

    Cavaliers Nuggets Basketball

    On the record, everyone tries to keep a brave face. Basically every last person involved in the new Collective Bargaining Association talks say that a lockout can be avoided. They then say that will happen when the other side caves to their demands. But on the record they hold out hope. Off the record, nobody…

  9. ‘Melo: “I would never go about it the way LeBron did”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:54 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony may not be handling his departure from Denver perfectly, but after watching what LeBron James did last summer leaving Cleveland Anthony told Sports Illustrated he learned some lessons. “I would never go about it the way LeBron did it,” the Denver Nuggets’ three-time All-Star forward told Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Ian Thomsen… “If…

  10. Detroit fans chant, “We want Rip”

    Jan 18, 2011, 11:19 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Rip Hamilton sat again Monday, a fourth consecutive DNP-CD on the scorecard (Did Not Play, Coach’s Decision). Some Pistons fans want none of it and started chanting “We want Rip” during the team’s victory over Dallas Monday, according to the Detroit News. Admittedly it wasn’t a huge roar, but at least some fans realize that…

  11. If Knicks trade for 2012 pick, they can trade 2011 and 2013

    Jan 18, 2011, 10:43 AM EST

    Image (1) donnie_walsh-thumb-250x250-21082.jpg for post 6239

    Knicks GM Donnie Walsh has said he has a way to get more than one first round draft pick — a not so subtle comment aimed at the Denver Nuggets (who still are working hard with the Nets on a Carmelo Anthony trade and are avoiding the Knicks like they have the Hantavirus). There have…

  12. The LeBrons are back in coming animated series for Web

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:50 AM EST

    the_lebrons_family

    It seems LeBron James is better known for the things around him off the court — like Nike’s ad campaigns — than for what he has accomplished on it so far. For example, remember “The LeBrons?” The four versions of LeBron — dapper business LeBron, athlete LeBron, young LeBron and old, curmudgeonly LeBron — from…

  13. John Wall asks coach to fine him when he sulks

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:24 AM EST

    John Wall, Deron Williams

    John Wall played maybe his best game of the season Monday. Matched up on the elite Deron Williams of Utah, Wall had 19 points (7-of-12 shooting) and a career high 15 assists — one of those a pass to Nick Young in the corner to seal the win with a three. Wall did a good…

  14. Quote of the day: Ron Artest loves him some In-N-Out burgers

    Jan 18, 2011, 9:03 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    “I could’ve bought 10,000 In-N-Out Burgers. I rather would’ve done that than give it away. I’m going to get 10 burgers [after Monday’s game]. I love In-N-Out. It’s addicting. It’s the only reason I’m here in L.A. If it wasn’t for In-N-Out Burger, I probably would’ve gone to Memphis or something.” —Ron Artest‘s reaction to…

  15. Video: Kevin Garnett saves the day

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:43 AM EST

    Kevin Garnett

    It was a fitting end to the Celtics and Magic — if Kevin Garnett had not been back in this game, the Celtics would not have won. Less for any specific play he made than the different, more intense energy the Celtics have when he is on the court. This was the best game of…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Martin Luther King Day games

    Jan 18, 2011, 8:33 AM EST

    Ray Allen

    What you missed while listening to the “I have a Dream” speech… The Lakers defeating the Thunder in a contest that looked a lot like last-year’s playoffs was our game of the night. Celtics 109, Magic 106: Kevin Garnett is back. Is he ever. It was a full slate of 13 NBA games Monday and…

  17. New season, same old Thunder. That’s not enough in L.A.

    Jan 18, 2011, 2:35 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Meet the new Thunder, same as the old Thunder. Which is a pretty good thing, those old Thunder captured the imagination of the NBA fans nationwide last season. They were athletic, they got and ran, they were just fresh and fun. Thunder players talk openly of wanting to get rings with this group, there is…

  18. Blake Griffin puts up 47, NBA one-game high for season. He’s more than dunks.

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansbrough

    Blake Griffin is a basketball stud. I don’t mean in the highlight dunk kind of way… well, yes I do. That too. He has more dunks than anyone in the league by a long shot. But in the “this guy can flat out ball” kind of way. He dropped 47 on the Indiana Pacers Monday…

  19. Brandon Roy has knee operations, called successful

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:46 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Doctors will tell you any surgery you wake up from is a successful surgery. So, on multiple levels Brandon Roy’s double knee operation today was a success. Operations on both knees took place on Monday, cleaning up issues as best they can, and now the recovery and rehabilitation begins. There is no set timetable for…

  20. Antawn Jamison considering retirement after next season

    Jan 17, 2011, 7:26 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison

    Antawn Jamison is 34 years old. He isn’t exceptionally athletic (and never has been, really), exceptionally strong, or exceptionally tall. His game could age fairly well as long as his employer is willing to put up with his defensive limitations, and Jamison could certainly find NBA work as a scorer, rebounder, and calming locker room…
