  1. Don Nelson ties all-time coaching wins record

    Apr 4, 2010, 8:50 PM EDT

    Well, the old lunatic finally got there. With the Warriors’ 113-112 win over the Raptors (thanks, Chris Bosh!), Nelson tied Lenny Wilkens for most wins by an NBA coach with 1,332. That’s a lot of wins. For his part, Nelson’s mostly spoken about wanting to get the record over with, so there won’t be so…

  2. We say again, San Antonio should aim for LA in 1st round

    Apr 4, 2010, 6:58 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich said before Sunday’s game with the Lakers that every Western Conference team is trying to avoid the Lakers in round one. Via ESPN: “The ones that say, ‘We don’t care who we play,’ they’re full of baloney,” Popovich said. “We’re all trying to hide from the Lakers in the first round and that’s…

  3. Andrew Bogut Injury grim reminder for contending coaches, fans

    Apr 4, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut’s injury was just gruesome to watch. For the management and fans of the Bucks it was doubly painful — their sudden playoff momentum and chance at the second round is dislocated as well. For the title contenders in the NBA, it was a reminder that it could happen to them. CBS’s Ken Berger…

  4. George Karl to miss the first round of the playoffs. At least.

    Apr 4, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

     When the playoffs come, we want guys to man up and play injured. This is not time for being soft. We almost never give away a free pass. George Karl gets one of those passes. He can be out as long as he wants, no questions asked. Karl is going to miss at least the…

  5. The Celtics can beat the Cavs. If everything breaks their way.

    Apr 4, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    The Celtics can too beat the Cavaliers. If Ray Allen is on fire from three. If LeBron James makes a bad decision with the game on the line and goes for the win, then misses a PUJIT three. If the Cleveland coach gets ejected. If Rajon Rondo can keep his turnovers down. If Shaquille O’Neal…

  6. Will Lakers vs. Spurs Sunday teach us anything?

    Apr 4, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    The sage observer that is Matt Moore asked this same question of ABC’s morning game between the Cavaliers and Celtics, but let’s ask it about the second game — the Spurs at the Lakers. Can we learn anything from this game, heading into the playoffs and a possible first round matchup? No, not really. I…

  7. Spencer Hawes gets little bit of good news, no surgery

    Apr 4, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Sacramento’s Spencer Hawes is out for the season with another injury to the same knee he had surgery on. He’s probably not going to get a big payday this summer. He’s going to have to fight for his staring job next season. But at least he doesn’t have to have surgery again. That’s the news…

  8. What does an Amar'e Nets team look like? Scary.

    Apr 4, 2010, 1:15 PM EDT

    The Newark Star Ledger spoke with Amar’e Stoudemire after the Nets-Suns game last week and asked him about playing in New Jersey. With the Nets. Who just recently avoided being the worst team in the history of professional basketball, record wise (though we’ve told you they’re not that bad). So surely Amar’e is going to…

  9. Cavs-Celtics IV: What's left to say?

    Apr 4, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The Cavaliers and Celtics meet for the fourth time tomorrow, but you have to ask yourself if this meeting can tell us much. Usually when two title contenders meet in April, there’s high drama and questions to be answered. But given what we’ve seen this season, the result would have to be extreme to bear…

  10. Andrew Bynum not exactly burning up the comeback trail

    Apr 4, 2010, 12:07 PM EDT

    You’ll remember when the MRI confirmed an Achilles strain for Andrew Bynum that the original diagnosis was two weeks for his return. Two weeks was yesterday. So reporters checked in with his doctor regarding his progress. The progress? Bynum’s not even cleared for running or jumping. Oh. The playoffs are around the corner. But this…

  11. Da'Sean Butler tears ACL, another pick might plummet

    Apr 4, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    West Virginia star forward Da’Sean Butler tore his ACL during West Virginia’s loss to Duke in the Final Four. That’s typically a bad thing for your draft prospects. It seems there’s going to be a litany of picks coming off injuries during the draft, which could make it difficult for teams to get a read…

  12. Baseline to Baseline, where the Johan Petro was relevant

    Apr 4, 2010, 8:11 AM EDT

    What happened Saturday while you were dying Easter eggs… Raptors 128 Sixers 123: Antoine Wright can be a difference maker if put in the position. He hauled in a hayuuuuge offensive rebound which sealed the game for Toronto. Say what you want about Andrea Bargnani, and Raptor fans will, but if they’re going to play…

  13. Miami Heat's chartered plane made emergency landing

    Apr 4, 2010, 5:14 AM EDT

    Last night definitely qualifies as a weird night in the NBA. Milwaukee’s momentum came to a grinding halt with a potentially season-ending injury to Andrew Bogut, despite the fact that the Bucks bested the streaking Suns 107-98. The New Jersey Nets won a game by 28 points. It’s already a bit weird that the Miami…

  14. Andrew Bogut suffers gruesome fall after dunk

    Apr 4, 2010, 4:41 AM EDT

    UPDATE 4/4 4:41 AM: Bogut’s injury is actually more serious and more complicated than originally thought. According to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, not only is his right elbow dislocated, but he also suffered a right wrist sprain and broke his right hand. Gardner’s source indicated that Bogut will likely undergo season-ending…

  15. Amar'e has been taking no prisoners, but will take Player of the Month honors

    Apr 3, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    Without even attempting to understand Amar’e Stoudemire’s motivations, I will say this: there are times when Amar’e qualifies as a basketball force that’s somehow more than unstoppable. He’s capable of being an on-court power that is completely dominating and intimidating, and his combination of size, speed, and athleticism should make him a sure-fire candidate for…

  16. Joey Dorsey signs with Toronto Raptors

    Apr 3, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    Woj over at Yahoo reports via Twitter the Toronto Raptors plan to sign former King and Rocket Joey Dorsey this afternoon, after the Kings released Dorsey due to attitude problems. The former Memphis Tiger spent a year and a half in the D-League developing in the Rockets’ system, improving considerably, before being called up and…

  17. Union has begun planning with players for lockout contingencies

    Apr 3, 2010, 3:45 PM EDT

    Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plains Dealer has a report this morning that Players Union Executive Director Billy Hunter was in Cleveland this week, meeting with players to advise players to begin planning in the event of a lockout. Hunter advised the players to begin stashing away cash, and scrimping on some of the more…

  18. The Hawks may have found their concrete ceiling

    Apr 3, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    It was all going so well. The Hawks had swept the Celtics in convincing fashion this year, beating them just about every way you can (at home, on the road, in box, with Jamal Crawford being a pox). They had managed to deliver a late season win over Orlando, at least providing some measure of…

  19. Tyson Chandler will return to Bobcats, the song remains the same

    Apr 3, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    There is a lot of excitement about the Bobcats in Charlotte right now — they are about to make the playoffs for the first time ever. That’s a big deal. Legitimately big milestone. And the Queen City fans there love this roster. Which is good, because it’s basically the one they will see next year.…

  20. Tracy McGrady's future apparently not in New York

    Apr 3, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    He didn’t make it there. Can he make it anywhere? After getting a good look at him for 21 games, Mike D’Antoni has made his decision and he wants a future without Tracy McGrady, the New York Post is reporting. The team source said D’Antoni feels McGrady has too far to go in his comeback…
