  1. Report: Lakers, Trail Blazers discuss Raymond Felton trade

    Mar 5, 2012, 10:32 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The Lakers desperately need a true point guard. The Trail Blazers have been very unhappy with Raymond Felton this season — mostly because he’s looked heavy, is shooting 36.8 percent, 24.6 percent from three, and his turnovers are up. So while it may be odd to have two division rivals talking trade, the Lakers and…

  2. Video: Monta Ellis with circus layup against Toronto

    Mar 5, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Monta Ellis is one of the most entertaining scorers in the league and this 360 reverse layup from Sunday’s game against the Raptors is a must see. With the Warriors scoring just 28 points in the second half, it pretty much took shots like this for them to get buckets. And it’s nice to see…

  3. If Marcin Gortat can get 20 rebounds in a game, you’ll see him shoot three-pointers

    Mar 5, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    Marcin Gortat has a deal with the Suns’ coaching staff this season: get 20 rebounds in a game, do what you like. As you’ll soon see, this is a very serious and important matter to Gortat — so much so that he believes there might have been a conspiracy to keep him from reaching that…

  4. Knicks’ Bill Walker out 4-6 weeks following elbow surgery

    Mar 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Through the first half of the season Bill Walker was getting a fair amount of run with the Knicks, but that had started to change in the last few weeks. First Carmelo Anthony returned and soaked up most of the minutes at the small forward spot. Then Steve Novak developed a real chemistry with Jeremy…

  5. Brook Lopez rolls ankle, leaves arena on crutches

    Mar 5, 2012, 8:10 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Landry Fields

    Brook Lopez has been back just five games after foot surgery — and his impact on the Nets has been clear. The Nets are 3-2 in those games including wins over New York and Dallas, with Lopez averaging 19.2 points per game. But now the Nets may be without him again for a stretch. Lopez…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s the Deron Williams show

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:18 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while suing your college because your dorm roommate had too much sex… Celtics 115, Knicks 111 (OT): Rajon Rondo dominated Jeremy Lin, put up a monster line — 18 points, 20 assists, 17 rebounds — and got the Celtics a big win in one of our games of the day. Lakers 93,…

  7. Turns out Chris Bosh is pretty important this season

    Mar 5, 2012, 4:19 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh LeBron James

    Chris Bosh was once one of the best players in the league. We’re learning that this designation moves faster now. Due to the extensive nature of talent in this league, players are constantly rising and falling to the top tiers. In 2010, he was considered one of the best players in the NBA. Last year,…

  8. Video: Deron Williams drops 57 points on the Bobcats

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:10 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams scored 57 points on just 29 shots against the Bobcats Sunday— he hit 16 of his shots and was 21-for-21 from the free throw line. You can see all of them above. Well, not the free throws, but everything else. It was an impressive performance — it is more points than any player…

  9. Video: Paul Pierce hits three to send it to overtime

    Mar 4, 2012, 10:03 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Rajon Rondo‘s triple-double is the big story line, but the Celtics still would not have beaten the Knicks without 34 from Paul Pierce, including this awkward three to send the game to overtime. This is why the Celtics, even though they likely will not have home court in the first round of the playoffs, is…

  10. Kobe gets his revenge as Lakers down Heat 93-83

    Mar 4, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    You couldn’t have scripted this any better. Kobe Bryant got revenge on Dwyane Wade for his hard foul in the All-Star Game a week later, with his Lakers winning 93-83 over Miami behind 33 points on 23 shots for the Black Mamba. Wade fouled out (!) scoring just 16 points on 17 field goal attempts.…

  11. Cousins shoots down the idea he wants out of Sactown

    Mar 4, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Kings, DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins is a phenomenally temperamental player. He’s not a bad kid, by any account. That gets lost in all of his infuriating on-court behavior. He tends to annoy teammates, but he’s not causing trouble on or off court outside of some lazy defense from time to time. He’s also ruining everyone as of late,…

  12. Jeremy Lin who? Rajon Rondo dominates in Celtics victory

    Mar 4, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Jeremy Lin, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks

    All-Star weekend, the Nets Deron Williams (who put up 38 on the Knicks) said all the hype around Jeremy Lin would have other teams’ point guards looking to take their frustrations out on the Knicks. Meet Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard had 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists and dominated the Knicks in…

  13. Step away from the Trail Blazers, people. It’s about to blow.

    Mar 4, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Portland Trail Blazers

    On another website, in the fourth week of the season, I had the Trail Blazers as the fifth best team in the league in an edition of the power rankings. They looked  awesome. I use that word a lot, but in the Blazers’ case, it was true. They played some of the best ball by any…

  14. Lots of people who Pau Gasol will not save want Pau Gasol

    Mar 4, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    It’s really interesting to watch the evolution of a player like Pau Gasol, not only from the public’s consciousness perspective, but from that nebulous aspect of basketball which metrics can’t define. Our ability to define efficiency and production is better than ever and shouldn’t be disregarded when considering Gasol’s value. But there is another part…

  15. Report: Clippers interested in Ray Allen

    Mar 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Clippers have struggled without Chauncey Billups, missing their legitimate shooter at 2-guard and his ability to help manage the offense alongside CP3. (Who would have thought he’d need help?) So the Clippers have started showing up in trade rumors, and the latest one is both intriguing and bizarre.…

  16. Mavs support Odom’s return as he has a good game in win over Utah

    Mar 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Lamar Odom drives on Phoenix Suns Grant Hill near guard Steve Nash during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    After Dirk Nowitzki was done dropping 40, after the Jazz went quietly into the night, after Lamar Odom had returned just hours before to the team instead of beginning an assignment with the D-League, it was a time for reconciliation. And the Mavericks, as teams with good, quality guys do, were ready to stick up…

  17. Video: J-Smoove throws it down on Serge Ibaka

    Mar 4, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is an underrated in game dunker — he doesn’t get as many chances as he should in the Hawks offense, but the man can be fierce. Just ask Serge Ibaka. J-Smove got up and threw it down on Ibaka during the Hawks upset win over the Thunder Saturday. It was a big dunk…

  18. Kobe says he has no active rivals left in NBA

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Donte Greene

    Dwyane Wade and LeBron James will be fired up when the Heat take on the Lakers Sunday afternoon in a nationally televised game. Not because the Lakers are particularly threatening this season, but because of Kobe Bryant. He is the measuring stick for all the great players in the NBA right now — five-time champion,…

  19. Report: Stern done after 2014

    Mar 3, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    The New York Daily News reports that the current plan is for Stern to inform the owners that he will step down after two more seasons, presumably after the 2013-14 season. From the Daily News: Insiders say that David Stern is planning to tell NBA owners at their April Board of Governors meeting that he’s good…

  20. Baron Davis could eventually replace Jeremy Lin as Knicks starting point guard

    Mar 3, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    As the media were allowed into Knicks practice on Friday, they saw something unexpected: Jeremy Lin and Baron Davis playing on the floor together, on the same team, with the rest of the starting unit during a scrimmage. It’s certainly an interesting idea, and one that would be even more interesting to see in a…
