    Lakers Dwight Howard reacts after being fouled by the Spurs during Game 4 in Los Angeles

    LOS ANGELES — Coming into Sunday’s Game 4 against the Spurs and dealing with a mountain of injuries that has finally become insurmountable, the only thing left for the Lakers, who were just a single game from this season being brought to its merciful conclusion, was to see whether or not the team would come…

  3. Heat take care of business, sweep Bucks out of playoffs 88-77

    Apr 28, 2013, 7:35 PM EST

    Miami Heat's Allen and James slap hands during the second half of Game 4 of their NBA first round playoff series in Milwaukee

    This is what we all expected — a four-game sweep by a Heat team that was just vastly superior to a Bucks team that on top of everything else stumbled into the playoffs. Four games, all decided by double digits and never in doubt at the end, and that continued Sunday with the Heat knocking…

  4. Boston lives to see another day, beat Knicks to force Game 5

    Apr 28, 2013, 5:08 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Terry celebrates game winning shot against New York Knicks during overtime NBA Eastern Conference semifinal playoff basketball series in Boston

    What was it going to take for the Celtics to beat the Knicks in games this series? 1) A strong defense that contained a powerful Knicks offense. Like holding them to 34.4 percent shooting. Check. 2) Not letting Carmelo Anthony take over a game, force him into inefficient isolation shots. Such as 10-of-35 shooting. Check.…

  5. Nuggets need to make defensive adjustments to even it up against the Warriors

    Apr 28, 2013, 4:40 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Three

    The Warriors have momentum on their side. They have won two straight games, are finding ways to hit the key shots that turn the tide of the game, and nearly every adjustment head coach Mark Jackson has made has worked out in their favor. The Nuggets, meanwhile, are still searching for something sustainable that works.…

  6. During 2011 playoffs, Phil Jackson told Lakers he had prostate cancer

    Apr 28, 2013, 2:59 PM EST

    Phil Jackson

    The last time the Lakers were swept out of the playoffs (as could happen Sunday as the Lakers trail the Spurs 3-0) it was 2011, when the Lakers were the title defenders. The Dallas Mavericks made short work of Los Angeles in the second round (and went on to win a title). After that loss,…

  7. James Harden says Kevin Durant’s late three-pointer was ‘a lucky shot’

    Apr 28, 2013, 1:30 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, James Harden

    To say that Kevin Durant was the beneficiary of a fortuitous bounce on this three-pointer that went down with 36.9 seconds remaining in the Thunder’s Game 3 win over the Rockets would be an understatement. The ball first hit the back of the rim, then bounced off high into the air, before landing softly on…

  8. Report: Dwight Howard to talk to other teams besides Lakers this summer

    Apr 28, 2013, 11:59 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Three

    The Lakers knew this when they traded for Dwight Howard last summer — under the terms of the new CBA it makes financial sense for a max player to play out his current deal and become a free agent then re-sign with the same team than it does to sign an extension to a deal…

  9. Do Celtics have one complete game in them? More likely Knicks break out brooms Sunday.

    Apr 28, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    How many times have we seen this the last couple games of the Boston/New York series: The Celtics set their defense and for the first 15-17 seconds of the clock the clog everything the Knicks want to do. Their on-ball defenders are in the Knicks faces, their defensive rotations are sharp, there are no good…

  10. Thunder ball boy under investigation for ‘death threats’ sent to Patrick Beverley following injury to Russell Westbrook

    Apr 28, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    When it was learned that Russell Westbrook would be lost for the rest of the playoffs due to a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee that required surgery, there were sure to be some Thunder fans upset with the way one of their team’s best players was injured. Westbrook collided with Patrick Beverley of…

  11. Kevin Durant throws down the monster jam on the Rockets (VIDEO)

    Apr 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Kevin Durant

    It’s always impressive when one of the game’s best players takes matters into his own hands offensively, and just decides that despite the five defenders standing in his way, he’s going to get to the basket and score. But this monster dunk from Kevin Durant late in the third quarter of the Thunder’s Game 3…

  12. Kevin Durant scores 41, Thunder take 3-0 lead, but Rockets show how Russell Westbrook’s injury could hurt Oklahoma City later

    Apr 28, 2013, 1:44 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets - Game Three

    Kevin Durant swarmed Jeremy Lin as the Rockets point guard tried to call timeout early in the second quarter, hacking at the ball and Lin until a official granted the timeout. That play – intentionally similar to the one where Patrick Beverly injured Russell Westbrook in Game 3 – aggravated Lin’s chest injury, and he…

  13. J.R. Smith suspended one game for elbow he landed to the face of Jason Terry

    Apr 27, 2013, 11:28 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    If the Knicks are going to complete their sweep of the Celtics on Sunday, they’ll have to do it without Sixth Man of the Year J.R. Smith. Smith has been suspended one game without pay for throwing an elbow and striking the chin of Jason Terry late in New York’s Game 3 win in Boston, the…

  14. Pacers’ playoff-best offense disintegrates in Atlanta

    Apr 27, 2013, 10:58 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Devin Harris needed just 4.5 seconds to slice through the Pacers’ defense for a layup late in the first half, leaving only 1.8 seconds for the Pacers. George Hill launched a desperation heave that obviously missed, but the look was only marginally better than the shots Indiana got most of the game. The Hawks’ offense…

  15. Nate Robinson, Joe Johnson exchange clutch shots to send Game 4 into its second overtime (VIDEO)

    Apr 27, 2013, 9:32 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Nate Robinson goes to the basket against Brooklyn Nets' Keith Bogans during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    The Bulls rode Nate Robinson‘s hot hand to a triple-overtime victory over the Nets in Game 4, and Robinson actually did his best to try to end this game after the first overtime session. Robinson scored 23 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter, but this, um, less than sane shot with two seconds…

  16. Grizzlies pull away in Game 4 to even series with Clippers at two games apiece

    Apr 27, 2013, 8:02 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    The Grizzlies imposed their will on the the Clippers for the second straight game of the series, and as a result, we’re all tied at two games apiece.

  17. Bulls win 3OT thriller thanks to Nate Robinson, Nazr Mohammed. Up 3-1 on Nets.

    Apr 27, 2013, 6:59 PM EST

    Nate Robinson

    The Nets had this. Deron Williams was his old self and Brooklyn up 14 in the fourth quarter against a Chicago team with no good offense. This series was going to be even and a best of three. Then Nate Robinson happened — a 23-point fourth quarter explosion in the fourth quarter led a dramatic…

  19. Rockets-Thunder Game 3 preview: Russell Westbrook’s injury a series changer

    Apr 27, 2013, 3:59 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook takes a break on the court against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    The Rockets are down, but Russell Westbrook is out. Westbrook tore his meniscus and will require surgery. He’s out for the rest the Thunder’s first-round series and longer, giving Houston a much better chance of winning games in these playoffs. But winning the series? That’s still a tall order, especially already down 0-2. The Thunder’s…

    Russell Westbrook underwent successful surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee on Saturday, Oklahoma City officially announced. He will make a full recovery. That’s the good news if you’re an Oklahoma City Thunder fan. He will be out for these entire playoffs. That’s the bad news. The question of his return really…
