  1. Lakers’ playoff position narrows after loss to the Bucks

    Mar 28, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    Lakers' Howard challenges Bucks' Ilyasova for the ball during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee

    Every game is critical for the Lakers down the stretch of the regular season, if the team hopes to maintain the hold on a tenuous playoff spot it took them essentially the entire year to secure. Nothing is secured yet, of course, and after falling in Milwaukee on Thursday by a final of 113-103, L.A.…

  2. Andre Drummond expected to return to Pistons Friday

    Mar 28, 2013, 10:18 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    Andre Drummond is the most exciting thing about the Pistons this season and is the most intriguing rookie in this class. He might have moved into the Rookie of the Year conversation except for two things: 1) Lawrence Frank inexplicably strangling his minutes so he could play more Jason Maxiell; 2) A stress fracture in…

  3. Suns ‘resting’ a perfectly healthy Goran Dragic

    Mar 28, 2013, 8:29 PM EDT

    Lindsey Hunter, Goran Dragic

    Goran Dragic has been one of the few bright spots during what has been an absolute train wreck of a season for the Phoenix Suns. But it appears his team is ready to play without him for at least a couple of games, for reasons that are blatantly obvious. Dragic had his best game of…

    Mar 28, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    You had to know today on PBT Extra Kay Adams and I would be talking Heat and the end of the streak, and how they need to focus now on the prize they really want. We also talk a little LeBron James and the physical fouls against him. He does get more than his share…

  5. Pacers Granger out for season to have another knee surgery

    Mar 28, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Danny Granger, the Pacers leading scorer from a year ago who has played just five games this season due to knee issues, is about to go back under the knife for his second surgery in seven months. With that, Granger is done for the season, the team announced Thursday. The decision was made after all…

  6. With streak over, Heat can turn focus to bigger goal

    Mar 28, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Erik Spoelstra, Chris Bosh, LeBron James, Mike Miller

    It’s not a good thing for the Heat that the streak is over. That streak helped keep them focused through the dog days of the season and that will help them in the playoffs. Plus, setting a new record could have been a special part of their legacy when we look back on this team…

  7. League admits Kobe fouled Rubio on final shot

    Mar 28, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    The NBA admitting it made a mistake matters about as much as you owning up to your boss that you made a big mistake — you get a nod of recognition but it doesn’t really change anything. So let’s all give the NBA a nod for admitting that Kobe Bryant fouled Ricky Rubio on the…

  8. Stoudemire talks rehab progress, which was news to Woodson

    Mar 28, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire dunks during their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    Like a lot of players, Amar’e Stoudmire likes being in New York and all the opportunities it presents off the court. Like having a documentary about yourself made, “Amar’e Stoudemire: In the Moment.” Then going on ESPN and some other national outlets to promote said documentary. And during said interviews, he will inevitably asked about…

  9. Lawson on heel injury: “I couldn’t move.” Time to rest the man.

    Mar 28, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Tony Parker,Danny Green, Ty Lawson

    It was a one-point game at the end — the Denver Nuggets had a real shot of knocking off the San Antonio Spurs on the road. Denver had the last shot. But that last shot wasn’t pretty — Danilo Gallinari couldn’t create a shot for himself so he dumped it to Andre Miller who tried…

  10. Kobe Bryant gets away with foul on Rubio to preserve Lakers win (VIDEO)

    Mar 28, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    For the Lakers, there shouldn’t even be this controversy — if they hadn’t given up an improbably 12-3 run late in the fourth quarter to the Timberwolves bench there would have been no play here to discuss. Kobe Bryant could have had ice on his knees sitting in a folding chair. Instead, he was trying…

  11. Bulls’ Jimmy Butler dunks all over Chris Bosh (VIDEO)

    Mar 28, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    This was just one of the exclamation points from the Bulls win over Miami. In the third quarter Luol Deng was bringing the ball up on the break, Shane Battier cut off the drive and Deng went with the alley-oop pass and Jimmy Butler finished it — all over Chris Bosh. The crowd at the…

  12. Deron Williams stops play to give Reggie Evans high five

    Mar 28, 2013, 10:58 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Reggie Evans reaches for the ball against the Los Angeles Clippers during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    As Reggie Evans worked toward 22 points and 26 rebounds last night – getting those numbers while playing fewer minutes than anyone since at least 1985-86 – I just wanted to give him a high five for all his effort. Deron Williams did. In the middle of a play. Via The Brooklyn Game: The problem…

  13. John Wall: I’m NBA’s fastest player

    Mar 28, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    John Wall, Mike Conley

    When two good players who play the same position play each other – as John Wall and Russell Westbrook did last night – they’re often asked about the other. Most players say something blandly positive about their opponent, satisfying the media with a nice sound bite. But put in that position, Wall didn’t bite. Michael…

  14. LeBron didn’t like physical play from Bulls. Too bad.

    Mar 28, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    LeBron James had to know what was coming. Wednesday night was the 15th meeting between the Bulls and Heat since LeBron went to Miami and joined Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — and Chicago has had more success against the Heat than any other team. The Bulls were going to be physical with him. They…

  15. Brandon Jennings lashes out after fourth-quarter benching

    Mar 28, 2013, 10:23 AM EDT

    Jom Boylan, Brandon Jennings.

    Brandon Jennings was 0-for-3 with no free-throw attempts and no rebounds through three quarters against the 76ers last night. That was also his final line, because Jim Boylan benched the Bucks point guard for the fourth quarter. Jennings didn’t take kindly to the move. Associated Press: “I don’t see any All-Stars in this locker room,”…

  16. Jeff Green’s game-winning layup completes Celtics comeback on Cavs (VIDEO)

    Mar 28, 2013, 9:28 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Paul Pierce

    Doc Rivers said before the game Wednesday he liked how consistently aggressive Jeff Green had been lately for the Celtics — that was always the thing with Green. His talent was never the question, but he could just blend into the background. With the Celtics needing someone to step up lately, he has. Including on…

  17. Chris Paul says Greivis Vasquez talks too much

    Mar 28, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Greivis Vasquez, Blake Griffin

    Chris Paul and Greivis Vasquez appeared to jaw at each other in the final seconds of the Clippers’ 105-91 win over the Hornets on Wednesday. After the game, Paul was interviewed on the court during the Hornets’ broadcast. “He just talk way too much, man,” Paul said. “He talk too much. I don’t – he…

    Mar 28, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Ding Dong the Heat are dead… or at least their 27-game winning streak is. But because of it the Chicago Bulls are the toast of the NBA. So in their honor, here is an all-Chicago Three Stars of the Night. Third Star: Kirk Hinrich (7 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds) He isn’t here because of…

    Chicago Bulls; Butler leaps in the air after making a three-point basket against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Chicago
