    Tim Duncan

    Tim Duncan isn’t an ageless wonder, it’s just that his age doesn’t seem to show. Facing the best front line in the NBA this season — Memphis’ Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph — he was at the heart of the Spurs’ sweep of the Grizzlies. We’ve marveled over the years as players such as Michael…

    Jeff Hornacek

    We told you this was coming over the weekend, but Tuesday it became official — Jeff Hornacek is the new head coach of the Phoenix Suns. He takes over for Lindsey Hunter, who took over for Alvin Gentry, both of whom were let go (Gentry 41 games into the season). This is a hire that…

    Japan v Phoenix Mercury

    Apparently, since it was just her first game, word didn’t get out yet around the WNBA not to help off Brittney Griner. The biggest name to hit the WNBA in years didn’t disappoint in her first game — she became the first WNBA player ever to dunk twice in one game (she is only third…

  4. Bulls VP Paxson latest to defend Derrick Rose’s decision

    Derrick Rose

    Do you really expect anybody with the Bulls to say anything differently? They need to keep their star happy, for one. Second, Rose remains liked by teammates and those around the organization that know him. So it’s not shocking that John Paxson, Bulls VP of all things basketball, came to the defense of those that…

  5. Coach Hollins is Grizzlies’ biggest free agent, can they keep a coach in demand?

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Lionel Hollins is the Grizzlies’ biggest free agent and he is in demand. Well, the Grizzlies’ coach is not technically a free agent yet, his contract runs through June 30, but he is about to be and there are other teams already lined up — the Clippers, the Nets and at least one other team…

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Through the wickets. Nutmeged. Just plain showing up. Maybe this was the first real sign Monday night was not going to be the Grizzlies night. The Spurs were on a first-quarter run and Kawhi Leonard is bringing the ball up in transition and the Grizzlies do a good job of stopping the ball, so he…

  7. Birdman scoring from the ‘bird box’

    May 28, 2013, 9:02 AM EST

    Miami Heat fans

    Chris Andersen hasn’t missed a shot in more than two weeks. He’s 13-for-13 in the Eastern Conference Finals and 31-for-37 in the playoffs. And now, Birdman has a nickname to describe the area where his scoring is generated. Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald: While describing his role on the team and deflecting praise for…

    May 28, 2013, 9:02 AM EST

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless

    In the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies’ Game 4 loss to the Spurs, Memphis coach Lionel Hollins pushed Jerryd Bayless near the Grizzlies bench (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward). It seems Bayless was sitting himself down anyway as Hollins pushed him, making the appearance that Hollins pushed Bayless down into a seat potentially…

  9. Celtics ‘likely’ to buy out Paul Pierce? Reports conflict

    May 28, 2013, 8:36 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    The Celtics are at a crossroads. Again. For the first time since grouping Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, Boston didn’t win a playoff series. So, as has become annual tradition, the Celtics are considering tearing down their team and rebuilding. Perhaps, it’s finally time. Allen is already in Miami. Garnett might retire. Rajon…

  10. Tony Parker carves up Grizzlies to dominate Game 4 (VIDEO)

    May 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    This video highlights the central problem for the Grizzlies all series — they could not contain Tony Parker. Not even close. Especially not in Game 4, where Parker went off for 37 points to lead the Heat to a win He would have the ball out top, come off the pick (usually of Zach Randolph‘s…

  11. San Antonio is team best suited to challenge Miami coronation

    May 28, 2013, 2:59 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    What none of us really want — outside of a few diehards in South Beach — is the NBA playoffs to be a leisurely stroll to a Heat coronation. We want Miami tested, pushed, challenged at the very least. We want them to prove they have earned it (if they can). That starts with Indiana…

  12. In impressive sweep, Spurs lay out path for future Grizzlies success

    May 28, 2013, 1:03 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    That was impressive, San Antonio. A sweep was just not something anyone saw coming (even those of us who picked the Spurs in the series). Tony Parker was again playing like the guy everyone wanted to put in the MVP conversation mid-season. All series long he would turn the corner off the pick and do…

  14. PBT Draft preview: Great news! The NBA is getting another Zeller brother!

    May 27, 2013, 9:14 PM EST

    VCU v Wichita St.

    You hate to say a guy made a mistake going back to college for a year, but in Cody Zeller’s case…. The center out of Indiana was expected to come out as a top 10 pick last year and he chose to return to Indiana for a sophomore season. And he pretty much looked exactly…

  15. Report: Lakers assistant Steve Clifford reaches deal to be Bobcats coach

    May 27, 2013, 6:41 PM EST

    steve clifford

    Steve Clifford, come on down. It’s your shot at the “rebuilding the Bobcats” job. Clifford, who spent last season as an assistant with the Lakers, has reached an agreement to be the new coach of the Charlotte Bobcats, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports (and since confirmed by other sources). This is a three-year, $6…

  16. Report: New Kings’ ownership to let GM Petrie go; search for replacement underway

    May 27, 2013, 5:41 PM EST

    Geoff Petrie

    When you have missed the NBA playoffs seven years in a row, it’s time to consider a new GM. The new Kings ownership group under Vivek Ranadive understands that among the keys to making this team work financially in Sacramento is not to perpetually suck. It drives away fans and sponsors. So in a shock…

  17. Pau Gasol is like everyone else: waiting on Dwight Howard

    May 27, 2013, 5:20 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers shopped Pau Gasol around a little at the trade deadline (or at least listened to offers of people that called them, if you prefer that fine-line distinction). This summer the Lakers could test Gasol’s trade value again. Or they could keep him. Or they could amnesty him (although that seems a real long…

  18. Preview: What Memphis has to do to extend its season

    May 27, 2013, 3:34 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Unfortunately Memphis, we know how this movie is going to end. No team in NBA history has ever come back from 3-0 down in a best-of-seven series and the Grizzlies just do not have the firepower to change that trend. But that doesn’t mean the season has to end Monday night. Memphis has taken the…

    lebron wade presser

    Near the end of the postgame press conference with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade after the Heat’s Game 3 win over the Pacers, Wade was asked how his knee was feeling, and whether or not it was affecting him during this series. Wade’s performance wouldn’t indicate that he was having any issues, especially after posting…

  20. LeBron’s post-ups the latest problem for the Pacers to try and solve

    May 27, 2013, 2:09 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    The Miami Heat got whatever they want offensively in Game 3 against the Pacers, racing out to put 70 points on the board by halftime in what would end up being an easy 18-point victory that reasserted the team’s dominance.
