  1. Dwyane Wade’s steal, dunk in transition define his throwback Game 4 performance (VIDEO)

    Jun 14, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    SAN ANTONIO — If there was a single play that showed just how much Dwyane Wade looked like the version we called Flash back in 2006 when he led the Heat to a championship and was named Finals MVP for his efforts, it was this spectacular steal and dunk in transition early in the fourth…

  2. The Spurs need more from Manu Ginobili, but can he provide it?

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    There’s no easy way to say this, so let’s just get right to it: Manu Ginobili is having, for his standard, an awful NBA Finals. The Spurs’ super-sub who’s a charter member of their vaunted “Big 3″ simply doesn’t resemble the player who has, for years, struck fear into the opposition with explosive scoring outbursts…

  3. Report: Chris Paul, Dwight Howard text about teaming up. This will not happen.

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    For the owners, pretty much half the reason for the lockout last year was to put in place an economic system that prevents stars from doing what the Miami Heat did with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. (Technically they still could have done that because they stripped the roster all the way down…

  4. Anthony Bennett to visit No. 1 pick-holding Cavaliers

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:21 PM EDT

    Mountain West Basketball Tournament - Championship - UNLV v New Mexico

    Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel is the consensus choice for the Cavaliers with No. 1 pick. Otto Porter, a polished small forward, is probably the best short-term fit. Or the Cavaliers could go in a completely other direction, as they’ve made annual habit. Dion Waiters (No. 4 in 2012) and Tristan Thompson (No. 4 in 2011) were…

  5. Phil Jackson: Lakers are ‘a mess’

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:17 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    The Lakers are an old team that barely made the playoffs and has significant financial obligations going forward. Dwight Howard’s free agency looms, as does a big luxury-tax bill. Phil Jackson is trying to sell books, and he has a complicated, at best, relationship with the Lakers. He also has never shied away from sharing…

  6. Rashard Lewis won’t opt out of Heat contract

    Jun 14, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward Lewis attempts a shot while Utah Jazz forwards Carroll and Favors defend during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    After the Big Three (LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh) and Ray Allen, which current Miami Heat player has posted the highest-scoring season in his career? It’s the guy who hasn’t played even nine minutes in a single playoff game. Rashard Lewis, who averaged more than 20 points three times with the Seattle SuperSonics…

  7. Jason Kidd talks getting Nets job, how good Stockton was (Dan Patrick Show)

    Jun 14, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Former NBA basketball star Kidd speaks at a news conference to announce him as the new Head Coach of the Brooklyn Nets NBA basketball team in Brooklyn

    New Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd (that is still really weird to type) swung by the Dan Patrick Show on Friday to talk about how he convinced Billy King this was a good hire. Other topics of interest came up as well, including how Kidd thinks John Stockton is the greatest point guard ever. I…

  8. Deck at Florida sports bar collapses during game sending 100 into water; people injured

    Jun 14, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Sports Bar Deck Collapse

    Bars in Miami (and San Antonio) are doing some big business during the NBA Finals as people pack the joints to cheer on their teams… and consume a few adult beverages of their choosing. Some people more the latter than the former. But it all went wrong at one Miami area bar. The outdoor deck…

  9. Popovich rightfully rips “idiots” who tweeted racist comments about national anthem singer

    Jun 14, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT

    NBA-FINALS/

    For Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the first game in San Antonio in the series, the Spurs had scheduled Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish to sing the national anthem before the game. But bad traffic around the stadium (which made Tim Duncan and Tony Parker miss warm-ups) made him miss it. So…

  10. LeBron likes Jason Kidd’s chances to succeed as Nets’ new head coach

    Jun 14, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    lebron kidd

    SAN ANTONIO — The Nets announced the hiring of Jason Kidd as their new head coach on Wednesday, and while there are legitimate questions as to whether he can make the transition so quickly from player to coach, the reaction has been mostly positive. Go ahead and count LeBron James among the believers. Speaking before…

  11. George Karl unloads on Denver for firing him

    Jun 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    George Karl

    Denver won 57 games, were the three seed in the West, and go into next season with one of the most promising young rosters in the league. Things are looking up. Because he’d helped construct a balanced, attacking, up-tempo system and team out of the parts that came back in the Carmelo Anthony trade, George…

  12. Heat’s Big Three score 85 points, their new playoff best

    Jun 14, 2013, 4:45 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    LeBron James scored 33 points in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, his most since Game 2 against the Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Dwyane had 32 points in Game 4, his most since March 4. Chris Bosh added 20 points in Game 4, his most since Game 3 against the Bulls in the…

    Heat's James watches center Bosh dunk against the Spurs as Diaw (33) and  Duncan (21) look on during Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    Just five active players have more than two seasons averaging 22 points and eight rebounds per game. Of those five, four have received at least one MVP vote in the last three years, and the one who hasn’t is the youngest. Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and Amar’e Stoudemire have been recognized among the…

  14. Tony Parker disappears in second half, so does Spurs offense

    Jun 14, 2013, 1:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

      We should all be as injured as Tony Parker looked in the first half of Game 4 — he hit 7-of-12 shots for 15 points with 6 assists. He was getting into the lane, spinning, driving and dishing. Injured hamstring? Sure thing buddy. But in the second half was like a completely different game…

  15. Dwyane Wade turns in dominant performance, plays like ‘2006 Flash’ in Game 4 win over Spurs

    Jun 14, 2013, 1:28 AM EDT

    Heat's Wade dunks against the Spurs during Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    In the Heat’s Game 4 win over the Spurs, however, the old Wade was back. “That dude was amazing,” LeBron James said of his teammate’s performance. “Like I said, he was ’06 Flash tonight. And we needed every bit of him.” Maybe not every bit, as James was pretty spectacular himself. But if not in…

  16. Heat’s Big Three dominate Game 4 to even the Finals at two games apiece

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:48 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    SAN ANTONIO — LeBron James was the one who took the bulk of the criticism for the Heat’s 36-point loss in Game 3, largely due to a 15-point outing that didn’t include a single free throw attempt. But Dwyane Wade knew better. He was well aware that for Miami to bounce back and remain in…

  17. LeBron says he must play better, plays way better

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:35 AM EDT

    Heat's James rebounds against Spurs' Leonard during Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    LeBron James is the most questioned NBA champion ever. The snickers and jeering reached critical mass after he struggled through the Heat’s loss to the Spurs in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Can he elevate his game on the biggest stage? Is he afraid of the moment? Why does he crumble under pressure? It…

  18. Tony Parker scoops and scores to beat shot clock (video)

    Jun 13, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Tony Parker was off balance. Again. The shot clock was ticking down. Again. Parker made the shot. Again. After his incredible game-clinching shot in Game 1, Parker made another incredible shot in the second quarter of Game 4. This one wasn’t quite as impressive and won’t garner the same attention, but that says more about…

  19. NBA Finals Game 4: Heat big three key 109-93 win

    Jun 13, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    Heat's James and Spurs' Parker follow the play during Game 2 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Miami needed a better defensive effort and they got it — San Antonio shot 44.3 percent, the Heat forced 18 turnovers and allowed the Spurs just 5 offensive rebounds. They needed someone to step up besides LeBron James and they got Dwyane Wade in the hot tub time machine back to 2006 — 32 points,…

  20. Chris Bosh flops (video)

    Jun 13, 2013, 10:32 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Chris Bosh wraps his arm around Tim Duncan, then suddenly and in cartoonish fashion, Bosh bounces off Duncan with both arms extended and falls to the ground. The flop drew an offensive foul on Duncan, but it will also likely draw a fine for Bosh. Perhaps if he didn’t jolt both arms in the air…
