  1. Utah Jazz may have inside track for two seed

    Mar 30, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    Nobody out West has the cushy ride that Miami does the rest of the way this season. That is the Hummer stretch limo of easy paths to the playoffs. But out in the West, where 1.5 games separate seeds two to five, and just 4.5 separate two seed Dallas to the eighth seeded Spurs, every…

  2. Pierce questionable for Wednesday's game

    Mar 30, 2010, 5:16 PM EDT

    According to Frank Dell’Apa of the Boston Globe, Celtics forward Paul Pierce may miss Wednesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder due to a shoulder injury he suffered on Tuesday. Doc Rivers said the following regarding the injury when he spoke to reporters after practice: “He got hurt again, it’s a stinger,” coach Doc Rivers…

  3. Varejao likely to miss game against Milwaukee

    Mar 30, 2010, 4:50 PM EDT

    According to Brian Windhorst, Anderson Varejao did not practice with the Cleveland Cavaliers today and will likely not play against the Milwaukee Bucks when the Cavs play them on Wednesday. This would be the second full game Varejao would miss due to a sore left hamstring, which caused him to miss the second half of…

  4. Phil Jackson muddies the water on his future. Again.

    Mar 30, 2010, 3:29 PM EDT

    If you want to know whether or not Phil Jackson is going to come back and coach the Lakers next year, asking Phil Jackson may be the worst way to find out. Jackson rarely says anything that doesn’t have a secondary intent and meaning. The truth is murky and covered up. Take these comments on…

  5. Rose says he'll be playing LeBron in the first round

    Mar 30, 2010, 3:22 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose’s Bulls defied expectations last year to make their first-round series against the favored Celtics an absolute classic of a seven-game series. According to ESPN Chicago’s Nick Fridell, Rose is eager to get the Bulls back in the playoffs and give them another chance to pull off a first-round upset. After a Tuesday morning…

  6. Amare Stoudemire thinks you're retarded, it's not about the money

    Mar 30, 2010, 2:33 PM EDT

    It’s not about the money. It’s never about the money in the NBA. It’s about the love of the game, the quest for self-improvement, it’s about team. Right Amare Stoudemire? You’re not suddenly All-World since the All-Star break because you see a new contract this summer. What would you say to people who are so…

  7. Ray Allen bringing basketball back to Seattle

    Mar 30, 2010, 1:27 PM EDT

    The fans in Seattle got screwed. They deserve some NBA basketball, Ray Allen is trying to bring it to them, at least for a night. Sports Illustrated has the details. A charity game, spearheaded by Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen and embraced by a litany of other players with ties to Seattle and the now-defunct…

  8. James Johnson drops 35 pounds

    Mar 30, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    When Loul Deng went down, James Johnson got thrown right into the middle of a playoff race. The Bulls are trying to catch Toronto for the right to be destroyed by Cleveland in the first round, and the Wake Forest rookie was suddenly the starting three on a team that needed wins. And he’s been…

  9. Winderman: Miami Heat get to coast into playoffs

    Mar 30, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    As NBA teams jockey for playoff position these final two weeks of the season, expect some sort of formal protest from the Bucks, Bobcats and the other teams jostling for position in the second tier of the Eastern Conference playoff race. Somehow, the Heat is being allowed to close out its season in the D-League.…

  10. Understanding the specifics of the Cavs' re-acquisition of Zydrunas Ilgauskas

    Mar 30, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    There’s been plenty of argument on whether or not the Cavs should be allowed to re-sign Zydrunas Ilgauskas after parting ways with him in a trade at the deadline, but not much analysis on why they’re allowed to re-sign him. As is the case with almost every cap-related issue, we turn to Larry Coon. Coon…

  11. Josh Childress mulls ending Greece vacation, returning to NBA

    Mar 30, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    With the looming lockout on the horizon, a lot of NBA players (and their agents) are looking at Europe and saying, “I could do that.” But the one big NBA name already there — former Hawk Josh Childress — is thinking about coming back. Maybe the league’s best sixth man — an athletic and fun-to-watch…

  12. Dominic McGuire joins the "out for the season" crowd

    Mar 30, 2010, 10:54 AM EDT

    There’s something very ominous about saying a player is out for the season. It’s as if every injured player is Michael Redd, losing another season of their career in semi-tragic fashion. Then you realize that every player that’s been declared “out for the season,” for non-playoff teams at least, is really just missing about eight…

  13. Quote of the day

    Mar 30, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    “I love D’Antoni, he’s the dope. Spending time with him in the Olympics, his offensive mindset is unbelievable. He’s got the best plays I’ve ever been around — on a whim. It’s like rappers when they come out on the top of the dome with quotes. He’s got plays in the back of his head…

  14. Did Antoine Wright run smack about THE Michael Jordan?

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:49 AM EDT

    Antoine Wright isn’t a bad player. Good defender, that will likely get better with age, and he can knock down some shots. But he’s not really considered elite. Which makes the fact that he was apparently “running smack” about the GOAT more than a little surprising. Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports that Bobcats…

  15. PBT now on Facebook

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    I, and the rest of the team here at ProBasketballTalk, are really twitter people at heart. Not sure what that really says about us, other than we like short sentences. Really. Short. But I are open to all the Web has to offer (except YouTube cat videos). So now we have the ProBasketballTalk Facebook page.…

  16. Jeff Van Gundy appears leader to coach Nets

    Mar 30, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Now that the Nets have 10 wins, let’s start talking about what really matters — next season. The next big day on the calendar in New Jersey is May 18, John Wall Day. What you call the NBA draft lottery. It could be a huge day in franchise history if the math goes their way,…

  17. Joey Dorsey waived by Sacramento Kings

    Mar 30, 2010, 8:55 AM EDT

    In the flashes we have seen, it seems like Joey Dorsey can play at the NBA level. It’s hard to judge, though, when a guy gets so little burn. Even on a Sacramento team that could seem to use him. Dorsey has been cut loose, waived by the Kings. The writing was on the wall…

  18. Kenyon Martin fears he could be done for season

    Mar 30, 2010, 8:32 AM EDT

    Last night, Dirk Nowitzki went off on the Denver Nuggets, putting up a triple double. He got to the spots on the floor he wanted, got the shots he wanted and finished with 34 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists. Kenyon Martin’s physical play is normally Denver’s answer to Dirk, but Martin had to watch…

  19. Baseline to Baseline, the "you can't stop the Nets" edition

    Mar 30, 2010, 3:24 AM EDT

    What you missed around the NBA last night while wondering what it would be like to see Doc Rivers snap like that hockey coach… Mavericks 109, Nuggets: 93: Dallas won this one with their forwards. The obvious part of that is Dirk Nowitzki’s triple-double — 34 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists. Usually Denver puts Kenyon…

  20. New Jersey Nets, you're not the worst ever, congratulations

    Mar 29, 2010, 10:59 PM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets have reached their goal of just being a kind of average very bad. The Nets picked up win number 10 on the season in style, defeating traditional power San Antonio. Except that these Spurs were without Manu Ginobili (easily the Spurs best player the last few weeks) and Tony Parker. So…
