    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony comes down after stuffing ball against Toronto Raptors in NBA game in New York

    The Knicks and the Bulls gave us a thrilling game on Sunday, one that New York was able to pull out in overtime 100-99. If not for Carmelo Anthony and his 43 points, the Knicks wouldn’t have gotten that chance. Anthony nailed two big-time three-pointers with the game on the line — one that sent…

    There’s a weird sort of rivalry brewing between the Kings and the Clippers, that, on the surface, doesn’t seem to make much sense. While L.A. has two current All-Stars and is likely to be a top-four seed when the playoffs begin in a few short weeks, Sacramento is a perennial lottery team with a couple…

  4. Dennis Rodman tells NBC he is not broke, is not sick

    Apr 8, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    We said it at the time — be careful of what lawyers say when trying to win child support, or really any court case. They would claim Bill Gates is a pauper. Former NBA star Dennis Rodman’s attorneys claimed he was broke and sick in court papers, but Rodman went on NBC’s Today Show Friday…

  5. Antoine Walker announces retirement from D-League

    Apr 8, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Antoine Walker D-League

    For the past couple seasons, a guy named Antoine Walker was playing for the Idaho Stampede in the D-League who looked and sounded a lot like the former Celtic and three-time All-Star. But if you watched him he was a shell of that former player (which is why he never got another shot in the…

  6. Bobcats’ Najera has surgery on fractured skull. Yes, he’s done for season.

    Apr 8, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Eduardo Najera

    It was inadvertent — an elbow from Milwaukee’s Jon Brockman that caught Charlotte’s Eduardo Najera in the forehead as both went for a rebound. The elbow fractured Najera’s skull. That’s about as dangerous as it sounds. He had surgery on Saturday to repair it and he is done for the season, the Bobcats announced (Marc…

    Apr 8, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Mark Jackson is finishing his first season as head coach of the Warriors, an inauspicious debut due largely to circumstances beyond his control. The Warriors decided to go into full tank rebuilding mode at the trade deadline by dealing Monta Ellis for an injured Andrew Bogut, and are playing it safe by shutting down Stephen…

  8. With Kobe out, Suns hand Lakers worst loss of the season

    Apr 8, 2012, 2:57 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant was a late scratch on Saturday in Phoenix, but his absence wasn’t the reason for the Lakers’ 125-105 loss to the Suns, the team’s worst of the season. It was the defense, or more specifically, the lack thereof that enabled Phoenix to set season highs in total points (125) and points in a…

  9. Magic GM Otis Smith says Dwight Howard did not ask him to fire Stan Van Gundy

    Apr 7, 2012, 11:51 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy made quite a bit of noise on Thursday, when he went public with his knowledge that Dwight Howard asked the team to fire him. This information came right from the top of the organization, Van Gundy said, so there must be some truth to it, right? Not so much,…

  10. Kobe Bryant out for the first time this season due to shin injury

    Apr 7, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant is known for his toughness, and has stubbornly played through all kinds of injuries throughout his career, and especially over the past couple of seasons. A torn wrist ligament couldn’t sideline him earlier this season, and in fact, nothing had — until Saturday night in Phoenix. Bryant was a late scratch for his…

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Brown celebrates with Bynum during their NBA game against Boston Celtics in Los Angeles

    Andrew Bynum was ejected early in the fourth quarter of the Lakers loss to the Rockets on Friday, and by all accounts, it was a situation that should have been completely avoided. Bynum already had picked up one technical foul, and after scoring on a strong post move inside, he turned to the Houston bench…

  12. Stan Van Gundy says he’d like to return as Magic coach. Right.

    Apr 7, 2012, 8:12 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Washington Wizards

    There is nobody on the planet that thinks Stan Van Gundy will be back to coach the Orlando Magic next season. Not Jeff Van Gundy. Not Mrs. Van Gundy. Not the president of the Van Gundy Fan Club… actually, there is no Van Gundy fan club. Yet, Stan Van Gundy is going through the motions.…

  15. Video: What the heck has gotten into Josh McRoberts?

    Apr 7, 2012, 3:03 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    First there was this: Now from the Lakers loss to the Rockets we have this: Look, I know what to expect from McRoberts — hustle, fundamental solid play, some rebounds and hustle points. But spin move three pointers and steals for the breakaway dunk? Who does he think he is, Von Wafer? If Von Wafer…

    Erik Spoelstra

    Cue up Cage the Elephant… The Miami Heat looked tired Friday night, losing at home to a more physical and physically ready Memphis Heat team. Dwyane Wade even said after the game he had a feeling in shootaround his legs were tired and he wondered if the Heat were ready compete. So, with Miami tired…

  17. Andrew Bynum’s “two steps up, one step back” dance with maturity continues

    Apr 7, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    I remember seeing Andrew Bynum as a 17-year-old at Summer League — then held in Long Beach, California — just weeks after being drafted. Two things stuck out to me at those games and interviews: 1) He and his game were so immature. Raw doesn’t even do his game justice. This was raw like sharks…

  18. Lin plans to return for start of playoffs… if Knicks make it

    New York Knicks interim head coach Mike Woodson gives instructions to players during their NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in New York

  19. Spurs move percentage points ahead of Thunder into West’s top spot

    Apr 7, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal

    It’s kind of been a foregone conclusion since a month into the season that the Thunder would be the top seed in the West and that all roads to the finals were going through Oklahoma City. But that road may have a detour now through San Antonio. The Spurs have now won 10 in a…

  20. Video: Aldridge drains overtime game winner for Blazers

    Apr 7, 2012, 2:13 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    It should never have come to this: The Mavericks had a foul to give at the end of overtime and for reasons nobody understands Jason Terry fouled Raymond Felton with 3.7 seconds left 40 feet from the basket as Felton was losing control of the ball and wasn’t a threat to score. It was a…
