    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Five

    We were all over the map today on PBT Extra — from Stan Van Gundy’s firing and what it means to the Magic, to the Lakers next steps. As for Durant being clutch, he is good late in games. He’s also great in first, second and third quarters. The best players at the end of…

    May 22, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    This video, uploaded to YouTube by “antisocial215,” uses clips of Spurs and Thunder swingmen Manu Ginobili and James Harden to show just how similar their beautiful games are — both are left-handed, deceptively athletic, good shooters and ball-handlers, and both use their superior basketball IQ and on-court grace to do some absolutely gorgeous things on…

    May 22, 2012, 6:15 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, holds a news conference in Los Angeles, California

    From the Los Angeles Times’ Mark Medina: Metta on Mike Brown: “It was a drastic change and took getting used to. But at the same time, we should still be up 3-2. Mike wasn’t out there guarding Kevin. That was me. Mike didn’t miss three point shot. I missed it. Mike didn’t come in out of…

  6. Jerry Sloan would be interested in Magic coaching job

    May 22, 2012, 5:14 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Fox Sports Florida’s Chris Tomasson has an interesting article up today about one legendary coach who might be willing to fill the Orlando Magic’s coaching vacancy: Jerry Sloan once coached temperamental star Karl Malone for 15 years. Perhaps his next challenge could be another such guy, Dwight Howard. Sloan told FOX Sports Florida on Tuesday…

  7. Can Heat duplicate blueprint of Game 4? Don’t bet on it.

    May 22, 2012, 4:52 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Game 4 was what Heat fans expected this team to look like — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were each an unstoppable force and played well off each other, the Heat played suffocating defense, and a role player (Mario Chalmers in the first half, Udonis Haslem in the second) stepped up. But can they duplicate…

  8. Video: Warriors owner Joe Lacob talks move to San Francisco

    Joe Lacob, David Stern, Ed Lee, Peter Guber

    The Golden State Warriors pulled out the dog and pony for a show on what they hope will be the new home of their team in five years — Piers 30/32 in San Francisco. San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee was there, David Stern was there, the wind off the bay was there as always. The…

  9. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  10. Deron Williams makes it clear he has made no decision

    May 22, 2012, 3:09 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    Brooklyn, to lead the Nets into New York. Dallas, to come back home and partner with the big German. Maybe somewhere else unexpected. There are a lot of options in front of Deron Williams. But when he was seen in Russia this week the Brooklyn speculation started up again (because the Nets are owned by…

    May 22, 2012, 2:53 PM EDT

    Ed Malloy, LeBron James, Danny Granger

    It took a few games, but now we’re getting some real playoff passion and disgust for the other team going. For three straight games Danny Granger has gotten in the face of either LeBron James or Dwyane Wade, in an effort to show he and the Pacers were not going to back down from the…

  12. Delonte West hoping to re-sign with Dallas

    May 22, 2012, 1:15 PM EDT

    delonte

    It’s going to be an interesting summer in Dallas. Can they lure Deron Williams back to his home town? Can they find a way to trade for Dwight Howard (not likely)? If those plans fall through, what does Mark Cuban have up his sleeve? Whatever happens Delonte West wants to be a part of it.…

    May 22, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    It is a question Clippers management has been asking itself since the day after they traded for Chris Paul: Is Vinny Del Negro the right coach to lead this team as a contender? The Clippers have an option on Del Negro for next season but are not making any quick decisions, GM Neil Olshey told…

  15. Lakers need big changes — which means trading a big man

    May 22, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol walks off the court after a season-ending loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 5 of the NBA western conference semi-finals in Oklahoma City

    It’s obvious the Lakers need changes. Big changes. The Oklahoma City Thunder are younger, deeper, more athletic and just flat out better. And they are not going anywhere for a few years. That’s not to mention up-and-coming contenders like the Clippers in the West that are passing where the Lakers seem stuck on the side…

    May 22, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Celtics' Garnett reacts after being called for a foul during their NBA Eastern Conference semi-final playoff basketball game against the Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia

    May 22, 2012, 2:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant

    The future is now. It can be said that the Thunder have done nothing more than advanced to the same position they reached last season before falling to another team from Texas in the Western Conference Finals. But this doesn’t feel that way. The Thunder exorcised their Mavericks demons in the first round, then took out…

  20. Video: Russell Westbrook’s insane, impossible scoop bank shot

    May 22, 2012, 12:26 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    One shot does not decide a game. There are always circumstances, things that might have gone differently. But one shot can spark a run and change the feeling of a game. All Game 5 Monday night the Lakers hung close. They would not go away. Kobe Bryant dropped 42. But you just had the feeling…
