    Mar 29, 2013, 9:39 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Tobias Harris, Maurice Harkless, Kyle O'Quinn, Jameer Nelson

    Gerald Henderson, in his fourth year, is having his best season, and it’s good timing. This summer, he’ll be a free agent, likely a restricted one. Coming off his rookie-scale deal, Henderson has his first chance to secure a big medium contract. But he hinted he’s not thinking about only money. Henderson, via Rick Bonnell…

  2. 76ers valiantly, foolishly, charmingly believe they can make the playoffs

    Mar 29, 2013, 9:10 AM EDT

    Lavoy Allen, Ersan Ilyasova

    John Hollinger’s NBA Playoff Odds run a simulation 5,000 times to predict the final standings of the NBA season. In two or fewer of those simulations, the Philadelphia 76ers make the playoffs. Philadelphia – six games back with 11 games remaining – is so unlikely to make the playoffs, its odds appears as 0.0 percent,…

  3. Bucks mascot Bango scares Dwight Howard (VIDEO)

    Mar 29, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    I don’t have quite Zach Lowe‘s mascot obsession, but I like them more than most — and Bango is my favorite. The Bucks mascot is daring and funny. And on Thursday, he scared Dwight Howard as the Lakers center entered the building. It’s funny. But I really want to see him try that with Kobe…

  4. Rockets Omer Asik fined $5,000 for flopping (VIDEO)

    Mar 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Back in December, the NBA warned Rockets center and defensive anchor Omer Asik about flopping when he embellished a minor contact with Tim Duncan to draw a foul. Three months later Asik was up to his old tricks and this time he’s going to pay for it. The league announced Thursday Asik will be fined…

  5. Three Stars of the Night: Larry Sanders, DeMarcus Cousins focus on the game instead of the officials

    Mar 29, 2013, 1:48 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Larry Sanders

    There are some very good players in the league who let their emotions get the best of them more often than not, and as a result, they have a bad reputation where the officials are concerned. But sometimes, these guys simply play their games to perfection, and dominate in the process. That’s what we saw…

  6. Kings get second straight road victory with win over Suns

    Mar 29, 2013, 1:22 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    It’s weird to try to analyze or figure out this Phoenix Suns team, when it’s clear that they’re more interested in earning ping pong balls than competing to win at this late stage of the season. There’s nothing wrong with that, necessarily. It’s just that when a team doesn’t field its best possible lineups or…

  7. No barbers for Dallas, Pacers handle them easily

    Mar 29, 2013, 12:28 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers Stephenson lays in the ball against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA game in Dallas, Texas

    Dallas missed an opportunity. They missed an opportunity to get to .500 and with that shave their beards that they have grown for entirely too long as motivation to reach that goal. They also missed the chance to get even with the Lakers for the eighth and final playoff slot in the West (the Lakers…

  8. Kobe Bryant has a bone spur in his foot, will be examined Friday

    Mar 28, 2013, 11:39 PM EDT

    Lakers' Bryant puts his jersey in his mouth during a break in play against the Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Kobe Bryant didn’t speak to reporters following the Lakers’ loss in Milwaukee on Thursday, and now we may know the reason why. It was revealed postgame that Bryant has a bone spur in his left foot that would require further examination when the team gets to Sacramento on Friday, according to multiple reports. Kevin Ding…

  9. Enes Kanter out ‘indefinitely’ with shoulder injury

    Mar 28, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    Enes Kanter is out “indefinitely” with a dislocated shoulder, according to Steve Luhm of The Salt Lake Tribune. Kanter suffered the injury against the Suns last night, and this is a fairly large shakeup for the Jazz, who are just a half game behind the Lakers for the No. 8 seed. Kanter, though he plays…

  10. 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.…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. PBT Extra: Heat streak ends, and LeBron dealing with physical play

    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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
