  1. Elton Brand benched, and he doesn't like it

    Apr 7, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    If Elton Brand and Eddie Jordan fight, is there a good guy we should be rooting for? Do we pull for the overpaid player who is putting up pedestrian numbers this season? Or the coach on his way out the door after instituting and offensive system that has left a team with talent wallowing in…

  2. Tyrus Thomas dislocates thumb

    Apr 7, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    He wasn’t seeing a ton of court time anyway — less than 15 minutes a game the last four for Larry Brown. But now he may miss more time. He dislocated his left thumb late in the Bobcats win over the Heat Tuesday night. The Bobcats have a back-to-back so not likely Thomas will play…

  3. Nuggets players uplifted by visit to George Karl

    Apr 7, 2010, 9:36 AM EDT

    Right now, the Denver Nuggets could use some team bonding experiences. This is a team that is .500 in their last 10 games, looks like they could get bounced in the first round and is just a shell of the team that others used to fear. Tuesday the team took maybe the ultimate bonding experience…

  4. Jazz, Thunder previous meeting was a traveshamockery, too

    Apr 7, 2010, 8:51 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant was fouled. Final shot in overtime last night, Thunder down one, C.J Miles fouled Durant. No question. It may have just been the balancing of the karmic scales. Let’s take you back to last year, barely. New Year’s Eve, Jazz and Thunder locked in another close one. We’ll let Ross Siler of the…

  5. Relive Jazz vs Thunder

    Apr 7, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    It was one of the best games of the season, so good even the 100-year-old woman with 1.3 million grandchildren loved it. Experience it one more time.

  6. Portsmouth means a chance for seniors, something to do for scouts

    Apr 7, 2010, 7:50 AM EDT

    I think of Portsmouth and I think of breakfast at Friendly Toast and the beer sampler at Portsmouth Brewery. Or getting a late snack at the Friendly Toast after having too many Portsmouth Brewery samplers. But that’s me. For a lot of college seniors with dreams of playing in the NBA, Portsmouth means the Portsmouth…

  7. Baseline to Baseline, where Durant and Deron go off

    Apr 7, 2010, 4:12 AM EDT

    What you missed while wondering if anyone is ever going to beat UConn… Jazz 140, Thunder 139 (OT): Hate to see one bad call mar one of the best games of the season. Durant vs. Deron. KD with 45, D-Will with 42. Neither team could stop the other late — the Jazz push Durant into…

  8. Thunder-Jazz have an instant classic marred by a traveshamockery

    Apr 7, 2010, 12:52 AM EDT

    It had everything. Everything except the ending. The Jazz and Thunder played an overtime thriller Tuesday night, featuring an epic collapse by the Jazz, scintillating performances by Kevin Durant and Deron Williams, huge defensive plays, and in the end… A no-call decided it. It was a back and forth game for four quarters, but a…

  9. Pacers sign Marcus Williams for a test drive

    Apr 6, 2010, 11:59 PM EDT

    According to Scott Schroeder of Ridiculous Upside, the Indiana Pacers are expected to pick up (the other) Marcus Williams for the remainder of the season. Williams is one of the top wings in the D-League, but this call-up is still a bit of a surprise. For one, the fact that Williams was called up by…

  10. Chris Bosh elbowed in face, taken to hospital, out for game

    Apr 6, 2010, 11:54 PM EDT

    UPDATE 11:54PM: Matt Devlin reports on behalf of the Raptors that Bosh has a broken face. No, seriously, he has a fracture on his face. He’s out indefinitely. This is a terrible development for Bosh and the Raptors, and if he misses significant time, it could spell the end of any dim hopes for playoff…

  11. Andrew Bynum = slow healer

    Apr 6, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum has never met a healing timetable he liked. Last season the Lakers waited and waited and waited on their big man to return from a serious knee injury and got about 50 percent of his game back for the playoffs. That turned out to be enough. Not going to be enough this time…

  12. Shannon Brown hand injured, may need surgery after season

    Apr 6, 2010, 7:16 PM EDT

    You can add this line to the scouting report for the Lakers in the playoffs: “Give Shannon Brown room to shoot from the perimeter.” Back on March 2 Brown tried to block a Dahntay Jones dunk and in the process got a bone bruise and a torn thumb ligament in his right hand, he told…

  13. Charlie Villanueva misses team flight Monday, but it's all good now, isn't it?

    Apr 6, 2010, 6:51 PM EDT

    This probably should have happened 50 games ago, but the Pistons are a slow pot to boil. Monday afternoon, the frustration of losing — and losing a lot — finally boiled over at Pistons practice. There was the coach kicking a ball. Plenty of finger pointing. Arguments. Angry tweets after the fact. To top it…

  14. Bogut undergoes successful surgery

    Apr 6, 2010, 4:46 PM EDT

    The Associated Press is reporting that Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut underwent successful on Monday afternoon to repair his injured right hand. Bogut injured his hand, wrist, and elbow on the same gruesome fall during a game against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday. Bogut is expected to begin rehab in six weeks, which makes the…

  15. Looking at Dwight Howard's technical fouls

    Apr 6, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard is known as one of the nicest superstars in the NBA. At times, he’s even been accused of being too nice. So why is Howard one technical foul away from an automatic one-game suspension?  Orlando Pinstriped Post decided to try to answer that very question today. Commenter “magicfaninTN” put together an obsessive analysis…

  16. James Johnson to be a game-time decision

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    According to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, Bulls rookie James Johnson will be a game-time decision for Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Johnson participated in a Tuesday morning shootaround, but has been hampered by a partially torn fascia.  The game against the Bucks will be an important one for the Bulls. Chicago is…

  17. Tony Parker returns to Spurs tonight

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Yesterday, Gregg Popovich didn’t have an idea who would play the point for the Spurs tonight. Suddenly, they found someone. Someone really, really, really good. Tony Parker has been cleared to play and will suit up tonight for the Spurs when they take on the Kings, according to a release from the Spurs themselves. So…

  18. Hoopsworld: NBA draft has a seedy side

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:32 PM EDT

    On Monday night, the NCAA Tournament ended. On Tuesday morning, Hoopsworld reminded us how much more complicated life can get for college players once they’ve finished their amateur careers and test the NBA draft waters.  Steve Kyler wrote an article that details the various ways agents reach out to amateur players around the time of…

  19. 2010 Free Agency, from LeBron James to Will Bynum

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:11 PM EDT

    So many teams have amassed cap space for the 2010 free agent frenzy, but not everyone can end up with LeBron James. Some team will end up with Josh Howard and Channing Frye instead. I mean, that cap space wasn’t going to spend itself, am I right? For all the fans out there that know…

  20. Don Nelson has no use for your little Hall of Fame

    Apr 6, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    Yesterday our own Ira Winderman said shame on the Hall of Fame for not having Don Nelson in it. Today, Nelson said pretty much the same thing to ESPN’s Marc Stein (in a fantastic and wide-ranging interview). Particularly if they vote him in next year just for getting the all-time coaching wins record after skipping…
