  1. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 3, 2010, 2:19 AM EDT

    Our game recaps from Tuesday, or what you missed while reading Free Darko…. Celtics 105, Pistons 100: Boston did what they do on defense — Detroit was just 2-18 from three point range and turned the ball over one of every five times down the court. The Celtics also shot the ball much better than…

  2. Ricky Davis headed to Turkey

    Mar 2, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    Ricky Davis, a 12-year NBA veteran who spent most of this season (and all of last) with the Clippers is headed to Turkey to earn a paycheck. He’ll be joining Turk Telekom Ankara for the rest of the season, according to Turkish papers (well, the translation of Turkish papers as we do not speak Turkish).…

  3. Thumbgate: Did Davis intentionally hurt Shaq?

    Mar 2, 2010, 7:22 PM EDT

    Like it was the Zapruder film, Cavaliers and Celtics fans have been poring over the footage from the thumb injury to Shaquille O’Neal. And, as they always do (for some odd reason), the conspiracy freaks have found a new cause: Glen Davis intentionally hurt Shaq’s thumb. Well, at least it’s something to distract the conspiracy…

  4. Come see the Nets, we'll do your taxes

    Mar 2, 2010, 6:41 PM EDT

    The worst job in America is waiting tables at the Denny’s in Hollywood from midnight until 4 am, when you are just slammed because all the drunk but broke hipsters show up to order “Moons over my Hammy” then realize they don’t have money left for a tip. Second worst, marketing manager for the New…

  5. Posnanski on Wilt's 100-point game

    Mar 2, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    Today makes it 48 years since Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single game, one of the most most recognizable single-game records in the history of team sports. Writing for Sports Illustrated, Joe Posnanski talks about Chamberlain’s relationship with Frank McGuire. McGuire was Chamberlain’s coach during his 100-point game, and famously never took Wilt…

  6. Gilbert Arenas says he would play for Wizards again

    Mar 2, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas is going to return to the NBA next year — teams are amazingly forgiving of sins if a player can score a lot of points. And Arenas can still score a lot of points. And he’d be happy to do that for the Wizards, according to AP. In his first interview since pleading…

  7. Stephen Curry, making layups

    Mar 2, 2010, 4:04 PM EDT

    Finishing at the rim can be one of the hardest things for young guards to do at the NBA level. It’s also one of the most important. As much as we tend to pay attention to quickness, passing, and outside shooting when talking about guard prospects, the ability to convert at the rim is just…

  8. Jordan takes big gamble on Bobcats

    Mar 2, 2010, 3:12 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan’s gambling penchant is almost as legendary as his game. But his move last Friday is the biggest financial gamble of his life — he bought an NBA franchise. Like a lot of small market teams, the Charlotte Bobcats are losing money, with ticket sales and sponsorship revenue down in this economy. The Bobcats…

  9. Mo Evan's shot, it rocks, it rocks

    Mar 2, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT

    Sorry about the headline, but Charles Barkley is stuck in my head, and that’s the only headline I could come up with. However, Mo Evans shot last night for the Hawks does rock.

  10. Brand out with Achilles injury

    Mar 2, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Elton Brand is not boarding the team charter today for travel and a game in Atlanta Wednesday, due to right Achilles tendonitis, according to the merged Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News Web site. He had been listed as day-to-day with a sore calf (apparently Bill Belichick is handling the Sixers injury report now) but the…

    Mar 2, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    Patrick Ewing Jr., son of NBA superstar Patrick Ewing, will reportedly represent Jamaica in international competition.

  12. Nocioni suspended two games for DUI

    Mar 2, 2010, 1:45 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni will not be in uniform tonight when Sacramento takes on Oklahoma City, instead he will be serving the first game of his two-game suspension handed down by the league. Nocioni was arrested in Sacramento for a DUI on Nov. 5 and last week pled no contest to the charge. His attorney said at…

  13. Granger struggles with personal issue

    Mar 2, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    For the Indiana Pacers to be just average, Danny Granger has to be miles above average. And lately he has been — shooting 49% (eight points above his season average) in his last five games, and he has two 30 point outbursts in that time. But Granger — maybe the league’s most underrated player —…

  14. Thunder won't raise ticket prices

    Mar 2, 2010, 12:46 PM EDT

    The Oklahoma City Thunder are a young team and they’re cultivating a young fan base. Fans of the Sonics that were are largely bitter over the franchise’s move to Oklahoma, and rooting for the team (and by association, the owner) that broke their hearts translates as some betrayal of the most core of fan values.…

  15. Arenas "freaking out" says very shadowy source

    Mar 2, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    It’s the kind of headline that draws us bloggers like moths to a flame, but before reading the next line, please take a generous amount of salt: Gilbert Arenas is freaking out. That’s what ESPN the Magazine is reporting, through it’s new Player X column — a column written anonymously by an “NBA Star.” (You…

  16. Kevin Martin's high praise for Aaron Brooks

    Mar 2, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    I’m honestly very, very happy for Kevin Martin and Aaron Brooks. We always knew those two kids would get together in a guard rotation, and I couldn’t be more excited for them and theirs during this incredible time. There’s nothing quite like it, and though the dark clouds that inevitably come for everyone will put…

  17. Tim Thomas not expected back for remainder of the season

    Mar 2, 2010, 11:22 AM EDT

    If you’re only scraping the surface of the events that have unfolded between Tim Thomas and the Dallas Mavericks this year, you probably think you’ve seen this all before. The Mavs added Thomas in the off-season, taking a chance on a veteran and a shot-maker, as so many teams have before. Thomas put on his…

  18. Finley asks out of San Antonio, overestimates value

    Mar 2, 2010, 11:11 AM EDT

    San Antonio didn’t have plans to let Michael Finley go, he wanted out. He asked out. He bounced the idea off teammates for a few weeks then, according to the San Antonio Express News, went and talked to the man. When Finley finally presented his request to Popovich, the coach was caught unaware. “I was…

  19. Denver desperate to add a big

    Mar 2, 2010, 10:33 AM EDT

    Coach George Karl likes to say that the Nuggets are half a body short of the Lakers. Presumably that is a very big body that could spend some time covering Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol. Now they are looking at what is left at the bottom of the barrel to fill that role. According to…

  20. Sixers to cut ties with Iverson

    Mar 2, 2010, 10:31 AM EDT
