  2. NBA Playoffs: James, Wade carry Heat, even up series with Pacers

    May 20, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Heat Pacers Game 4

    The Heat were able to get a 101-93 win over the Pacers to even up the series at 2 on Sunday, but it certainly didn’t come easy for them. The Miami Heat absolutely needed a win in Indiana on Sunday afternoon, and for the first part of the game, it didn’t look like the Pacers…

    STEPHENSON_LANCE

    Before Game 4 of Pacers-Heat, Juwan Howard and Lance Stephenson got into a verbal altercation. No, that’s not the start of a joke. It actually happened. From Yahoo Sports: Miami Heat forward Juwan Howard and Stephenson exchanged sharp words within inches of each other’s faces on the court. Stephenson, who flashed a choke sign at…

  4. Lakers-Thunder Game 4: The scapegoating of Pau Gasol

    May 20, 2012, 4:18 PM EDT

    kobe-game-3-thunder

    Someone has to go down for this. It might as well be Pau Gasol, I suppose. Because it sure isn’t going to be Kobe Bryant. When the Lakers lost to the Thunder Saturday night, blowing a nine-point fourth quarter lead to do down 3-1 in their Western Conference Semifinals series with OKC, it was Kevin…

  5. Can Clippers pull out one game against Spurs?

    May 20, 2012, 1:11 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin,  Chris Paul,  Caron Butler

    In reality, the Spurs can be looking ahead to their matchup with the Thunder (they match up well). The Clippers can look at the massive steps this franchise has taken the past two seasons — from league laughing stock to up-and-coming contender on the rise and be proud. They are showcasing the best point guard…

  6. LeBron, Granger talk smack; but Game 4 pressure squarely on James, Heat

    May 20, 2012, 11:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Make no mistake, if Miami doesn’t win Game 4 they aren’t coming back to win this series. Even if Chris Bosh had a miracle recovery. Even if Pat Riley replaced Erik Spoelstra and brought in Phil Jackson as an assistant. The Pacers are good and they are not losing three in a row. The Pacers…

  7. Something weird was up with the court at Staples Saturday, but the arena says situation normal

    May 20, 2012, 10:07 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Three

    You know those situations where you know something is wrong, but there’s no physical evidence to suggest as such? We’ve got one of those. Saturday night during Lakers-Thunder Game 4, there was something wrong with the court. The most notable example came before the half, when Russell Westbrook, a pretty agile guy, turned to run…

  8. Westbrook, Durant find the perfect balance in Game 4 win over Lakers

    May 20, 2012, 5:16 AM EDT

    westbrook-game 4

    During the Thunder’s playoff run last season — one that ended in a loss in the Conference Finals to the eventual champion Mavericks — there were constant questions about whether or not Russell Westbrook was a good long-term fit to play alongside Kevin Durant. One year later, now on the verge of taking down the…

  9. Lakers-Thunder Game 4: Kevin Durant and a new era dawning

    May 20, 2012, 3:17 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant

    Things change. It’s inevitable. And on Saturday night, you have to wonder if the guard changed officially in the Western Conference, and the NBA. 103-100, Thunder over Lakers. Kobe Bryant was the closer. The dagger. The Black Mamba. As recently as Friday night, he was the ultimate clutch weapon (as long as we’re only talking…

  10. Video: Kevin Durant hits the game-winning three to beat Lakers in Game 4

    Durant-game-4

    As Russell Westbrook led the charge offensively for the Thunder in their Game 4 win over the Lakers — finishing with a brilliant 37 points on 15-of-26 shooting — Kevin Durant seemed pleased to let that happen. But once the Thunder had made it all the way back from a deficit that hung at around…

  11. Clippers-Spurs Game 3: Surprise! The Spurs are better.

    San Antonio Spurs center Tim Duncan spreads his arms during a stop in play during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    It’s over. Or, it may as well be. The Spurs could have won Game 3 in the usual, undramatic, calm, cool, collected 15-point cruise victory they have every other game since April 11th, but this is honestly almost worse. The Clippers held a 24-point lead in the second quarter. They lost, 96-86. The Spurs at…

  12. Quote of the Day: Kobe Bryant is a winning winner who wins

    May 19, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    “I don’t give a [expletive] what you say,” Bryant told Yahoo! Sports late Friday. “If I go out there and miss game winners, and people say, ‘Kobe choked, or Kobe is seven for whatever in pressure situations.’ Well, [expletive] you. “Because I don’t play for your [expletive] approval. I play for my own love and…

  13. Kobe says controlling the pace will be key for Lakers in Game 4 vs. Thunder

    May 19, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    kobe-game-3-thunder

    The Lakers’ Game 3 win over the Thunder on Friday was gritty, hard-fought, and earned largely at the free throw line. With the game slowed and the clock stopped is where L.A. did most of its damage offensively, scoring 41 of the team’s 99 points from the foul line on 42 attempts. The free throw…

  14. How the Sixers defense stopped Boston cold down the stretch… again

    May 19, 2012, 2:08 PM EDT

    Thaddeus young

    In Game 2, it was this masterpiece that sealed the deal for the Sixers. In Game 4, it was the Sixers once again shutting down the lauded Boston clutch offense on a key late possession to steal the win. Andre Iguodala‘s jumpers were masterful. Lou Williams‘ offense was crazytown. The Sixers momentum was huge. But…

  15. Clippers-Spurs Game 3: Clippers have to find something, anything to save themselves with

    May 19, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    We’ve reached a point where you pretty much have to say that if the Los Angeles Clippers are going to make their Western Conference Semifinals series into a competitive contest, they’re going to need San Antonio to hurt itself. They’re going to need mistakes, mental breakdowns, missed shots, and some good old fashioned luck. They’re…

  16. Video: Andre Iguodala buries Celtics at end of game

    May 19, 2012, 11:57 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    For years, Philly fans have been asking Andre Iguodala to step up. Well, here you go. Down the stretch he knocked down a beautiful stepback jumper and then a dagger three to secure the Sixers Game 4 win, tying the series up at 2-2. Both are strong, confident plays from a guy who can step…

  17. Greg Oden had the German procedure Kobe had done on his knees

    May 19, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Greg Oden needs a break. A good break. He needs something, anything, with his health to go right. After so many knee surgeries I’ve lost count, Oden needs something to go his way to change his career and give him a second third fourth chance at living up to his potential. Everything that’s happened has…

  18. Lakers-Thunder Game 3: L.A. wins free throw contest by a lot, wins game by 3

    May 19, 2012, 3:15 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Three

    Forty-two free throws is a lot of free throw attempts. Forty-one free throws made is a lot of makes. The Lakers got one, made the other, and walked out of Staples with a win in Game 4, 99-96. We can talk about a lot of things. The way that the Lakers attacked the Thunder defensively,…

    May 19, 2012, 3:12 AM EDT

    artest-westbrook

    Late in the second quarter of the Lakers’ Game 3 victory over the Thunder, Russell Westbrook hit the deck to secure a loose ball. Metta World Peace then attempted to reach in and grab it, hoping to get a jump-ball call from the official standing nearby. As with many physical plays involving World Peace, that’s…

  20. Sixers edge Celtics with (surprise!) balanced offense

    May 19, 2012, 1:08 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Jrue Holiday

    The Philadelphia 76ers’ 92-83 Game 4 win over the Boston Celtics may be remembered for many things: altogether brutal offensive play, defensive flurries, or even a pair of huge Andre Iguodala makes in the closing minutes of a game where points were precious. Or, more realistically, this is exactly the kind of game that might…
