    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    There was a great moment in Golden State after the Spurs had eliminated the Golden State Warriors from the playoffs. As the game was winding down the fans had stayed and chanted — this is a passionate fan base long starved for much to cheer about. So the players came back out of the tunnel…

    Kawhi Leonard

    The Warriors had a great run, but their magic ran out. In a hard fought, defense driven effort the Spurs defeated the Warriors 94-82 to advance to their 2nd consecutive Western Conference Finals. Golden State battled all night, trying to stave off elimination but simply didn’t have enough. Stephen Curry scored 22 points, but never found…

    Kings Sale Basketball

    Just more than 24 hours after the NBA rejected a plan to move the Sacramento Kings to Seattle — essentially killing a sale of the team to a Seattle group — the Maloof family has reached a deal to sell the Kings to a Sacramento group that had put a counter offer before the league.…

  4. Warriors’ Harrison Barnes face plants, eventually leaves game with headaches (VIDEO)

    May 17, 2013, 1:12 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    That hurts to watch. Golden State’s rookie Harrison Barnes was coming from the weak side to contest a Boris Diaw shot, Barnes leapt and Diaw decided to go under for the reverse. It wasn’t intentional, but the end result was Diaw undercut Barnes, took his legs out, and Barnes face planted on the hardwood. He…

  5. Small ball, no George Hill, enough for Knicks to win, stave off elimination

    May 16, 2013, 11:37 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Chris Copeland celebrates a basket in the second half with his teammate Carmelo Anthony during the Knicks' 85-75 win over the Indiana Pacers' in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series in New York

    The Knicks didn’t solve the Pacers defense Thursday night. New York made some good little runs — with George Hill out for Indiana Raymond Felton was getting into the lane and making things happen more often, plus Chris Copeland showed why he should get more run — but overall the Knicks scored a pedestrian 85…

    May 16, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    UCLA v Arizona State

    Thursday and Friday in Chicago is the NBA Draft Combine, where 60 invited players — guys likely or at least in the mix to be drafted — get measured, tested, go through interviews with teams, and occasionally run drills. It’s a place where a guy can get noticed, although mostly it is just part of…

    May 16, 2013, 6:47 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers guard Hill reacts after scoring while New York Knicks center Chandler walks behind him during the second half of an NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Indianapolis

    George Hill — Indiana’s starting point guard who has given them 14 points a game these playoffs and is another long defender in their scheme — is out for the Pacers Thursday night in Game 5 against the Knicks due to a concussion, the team announced (via Mike Wells of the Indy Star). Hill took…

    May 16, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    Heat's Wade drives past Bulls' Gibson during the sceond quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference semi-final basketball playoff in Miami

    Time for another PBT Extra, where Kay Adams and I are talking about what the Bulls showed us about the Heat — is Miami vulnerable? How much more Dwyane Wade to they need when it comes time to face Indiana? And, Kay’s dad loves the Grizzlies these playoffs. He’s got a lot of company lately.

    May 16, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Marshall v Kentucky

    Fans of whichever team wins the lottery next week may have to wait until Christmas to unwrap their present. Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel is the leading candidate to be the No. 1 pick in the draft. Yes, the same Noel who blew out his ACL last season. He was at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago…

  10. Preview: Knicks’ season could end against Pacers tonight

    May 16, 2013, 4:59 PM EDT

    New York's Anthony moves on Indiana's George during an NBA playoff basketball game in Indianapolis.

    The Knicks had their best regular season since 1994-95, their first scoring champion since 1984-85 and their only playoff-series victory since 20020. Their season, whether or not it sends in Game 5 against the Pacers tonight, should be viewed as a success and praised. New York overachieved, at one point playing like the best team…

    May 16, 2013, 4:03 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki has played all 15 of his NBA seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, and has amassed quite a fortune while doing so. Not counting endorsements, the 11-time All-Star has pulled in $204 million in career earnings, which puts him fifth all-time in that category in league history. As a result, when it’s time for…

    May 16, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers looks on in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in New York

    Was there really any doubt? You didn’t really buy into the insane notion he would leave the Celtics to coach the Clippers, did you? Doc Rivers will be back to coach the Boston Celtics next season. GM Danny Ainge confirmed that to Gary Washburn the Boston Globe (via A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com) A league…

  13. Thunder enter summer with one big goal: Get healthy

    May 16, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant walks with his head down after a teammate fouled a Memphis Grizzlies player in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final playoffs in Oklahoma City.

    It’s this simple: If Russell Westbrook were playing the Oklahoma City Thunder would be on their way to the NBA Finals. Instead, there was disappintment as they fell in the second round to a very good Memphis Grizzlies team 4-1. This was not some blowout, Memphis was just +18 for the entire series. No game…

  14. Knicks head coach Mike Woodson says he’s ‘expecting to win’ Game 5 vs. Pacers

    May 16, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Mike Woodson, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are facing elimination Thursday night, trailing three games to one in their playoff series against the Pacers.

  15. Preview: Warriors need better performances from Curry and Thompson to hold off elimination against Spurs

    May 16, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    A closeout game is always the hardest win to get in a series. This is especially true when battling on the road and even more so when that road environment is one of the most raucous in the league. The Spurs, then, have their hands full when they visit Oracle Arena in Oakland and try to…

  16. The Extra Pass: Spurs relying on lineups that aren’t working

    May 16, 2013, 1:41 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs head coach Popovich reacts during the second half of their NBA Western Conference quarterfinal playoff basketball game against the Golden State Warriors in San Antonio

    Of the 35 most-used lineups in the playoffs, just three have negative net ratings and belong to teams that are still playing. All three belong to the Spurs. Tony Parker–Danny Green–Kawhi Leonard–Tim Duncan–Tiago Splitter: 70 minutes Offensive rating: 103.5 Defensive rating: 108.9 Net rating: –5.4 Tony Parker-Manu Ginobili-Danny Green-Kawhi Leonard-Tim Duncan: 36 minutes Offensive rating:…

  17. Nick Young takes to Instagram to respond to sexual assault lawsuit filed against him

    May 16, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Nick Young, Issiah Thomas

    Nick Young is currently facing a sexual assault lawsuit that a woman recently filed, alleging that some very ugly things occurred two years ago. It’s worth noting that this is not a criminal complaint, and we won’t jump to conclusions either way until the case is resolved. But it is unfortunate that anyone can file…

  18. LeBron says win over Bulls might have been the toughest closeout game of his career

    May 16, 2013, 12:34 PM EDT

    lebron postgame

    It’s no secret that the Bulls gave everything they had against the Heat, and that Chicago team will be remembered as one of the hardest-fighting in recent memory, especially considering all of the injuries they dealt with throughout the course of the postseason. The Heat had the utmost respect for their opponent, and couldn’t stop…

  19. Knicks might revert to their better-rebounding lineup, their small lineup

    May 16, 2013, 12:33 PM EDT

    Mike Woodson, Steve Novak, Pablo Prigioni, J.R. Smith, Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks started Kenyon Martin in place of Pablo Prigioni in Game 4 against the Pacers, an apparent attempt to match Indiana’s size. But once again, New York was torched on the glass and lost by double digits. So, Mike Woodson is looking for solutions where he’d already found them. Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv: Asked…

  20. Nate Robinson hit LeBron in face, which became a thing on twitter (VIDEO)

    May 16, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Five

    That was a pretty minor play in this game — in the fourth quarter the Heat were on a fast break and, as they have done all series long, the Bulls tried to go with the “Euro foul” out at midcourt before the play developed to break it up. Except, nothing is minor when Nate…
