  1. The latest Derrick Rose update: There is no update

    Mar 18, 2013, 12:10 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls are home this week — Monday against Denver, Thursday against Portland and Saturday against Indiana — which has fueled speculation that Derrick Rose is likely back this week. If he is going to be back this season at all. For Monday night against the Nuggets, don’t bet on it. According to coach…

  2. Monta Ellis goes off for 25 in fourth quarter to earn Bucks win (VIDEO)

    Mar 18, 2013, 11:28 AM EST

    Monta Ellis, E'Twaun Moore

    Monta Ellis is a gunner — he gets you a lot of points but takes a whole lot of shots to do it. But when he gets on a run when those shots are falling, watch out. Ellis scored 25 fourth quarter points —  19 in the final six minutes — to lead the Milwaukee…

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Los Angeles Clippers last four losses are to the Spurs, Thunder, Nuggets and Grizzlies. The teams they will have to beat in the playoffs. It doesn’t exactly inspire confidence. In the first months of this season the Clippers looked like a title contender, right now that is simply not the case. Their defense in…

    Lakers guard Bryant jogs onto the floor prior to the start of an NBA basketball game against Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis

    Kobe Bryant tried to play on his sprained ankle Friday night, because he’s Kobe. But that led to 12 minutes of playing, 0-4 shooting as he had no elevation or separation from defenders, and then the next morning his ankle was worse. So he sat out Sunday night, a Lakers win over the Kings at…

  5. Jason Kidd works out with Clippers shooting coach, knocks down threes

    Mar 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Jason Kidd

    When Jason Kidd entered the league he didn’t have much of an outside shot — he was a fantastic talent but he was not a guy you feared from three. That has changed over time. Part of the reason is Bob Thate, who was the shooting coach for the Nets when Kidd was there. Now Thate…

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki shoots free throw as Oklahoma City Thunder's Sefolosha watches during NBA basketball game in Dallas

    It’s good to Dirk Nowitzki throw down like that again. Well, I guess again. He’s never really been known for his dunks, but back in the day he did throw a few down. Here he runs the floor, gets the feed and shows he can finish. Russell Westbrook? Nobody ever really questioned his ability to…

    Monta Ellis

    While you were hopping from Irish pub to Irish pub Sunday, the NBA was putting a pretty solid slate of eight games. We had some surprise good performances and some from the usual suspects. Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook, we’re sorry. On Selection Sunday you were the bubble guys who got cut from Three Stars.…

    DeAndre Jordan, Ersan Ilyasova

    DeAndre Jordan got loose on the fast break early in the Clippers’ contest against the Knicks, and made sure to finish with some style by throwing down the thunderous windmill jam. This wasn’t quite on the level of DeAndre’s destruction of Brandon Knight, but not bad for an early Sunday afternoon start.

  16. Manu Ginobili slips and falls before finishing with the finger roll (VIDEO)

    Mar 17, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili

    This is the type of play that has defined Manu Ginobili throughout his career, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that he’s still making them while playing in his 11th NBA season. As Ginobili lines up his defender and begins his dribble-drive, he slips and falls, but not all the way to the floor, and…

    Marc Gasol, Darrell Arthur

    Marc Gasol found himself without a shoe at one point during Saturday’s loss to the Jazz, but that didn’t stop him from trying to continue to play defense. Sort of.

    Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Washington Wizards in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    It was a rough start to the season for Deron Williams in Brooklyn. He was failing miserably at living up to the max contract he signed in the offseason to remain with the Nets, and was placing blame seemingly everywhere but on himself for those early-season struggles. That behavior didn’t exactly ingratiate himself with the…
