  2. Report: Dwyane Wade had fluid drained from his left knee

    May 21, 2012, 3:12 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

    It’s been clear for a couple weeks now that Dwyane Wade was bothered more by his left knee than he was letting on or was in the worst playoff slump of his career. Smart money was always on the injury. Sure enough, Wade had to have fluid drained from his knee last week, reports Michael…

  3. Spurs close out school, season for Clippers with clean sweep

    May 21, 2012, 2:52 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Tim Duncan

    For the Spurs, it was another step toward their goal — they wanted plenty of rest before they take on the Thunder next series (sorry Lakers fans), now will get a week (rumors are the Western Conference Finals start May 28). For the Clippers, this was school — Chris Paul does not want to admit…

  4. Boris Diaw: From fat guy Bobcats shipped out to quality Spurs cog

    May 20, 2012, 10:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Sometimes in the NBA players just need a change. Boris Diaw needs one about once a year, apparently. In Charlotte Diaw was fat and too comfortable. Literally fat. He came back from the lockout probably 50 pounds heavier than last season and that combined with a mercurial personality and sharply declining performance was more than…

    The Warriors are making huge changes everywhere since Joe Lacob and Peter Guber took over two years ago. And now there’s word they could be changing zipcodes. Sources: Warriors have finalized plans to move to San Francisco. Announcement could come as early as Tues. Pier 31/32 arena w/ private $$$. — Fast Break (@GSWFastBreak) May…

  6. 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…

  7. Two reserves for Miami and Indiana in pre-game altercation

    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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

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

    May 19, 2012, 6:33 PM EDT

    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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
