    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…

    Brooklyn Nets' Reggie Evans reaches for the ball against the Los Angeles Clippers during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    As Reggie Evans worked toward 22 points and 26 rebounds last night – getting those numbers while playing fewer minutes than anyone since at least 1985-86 – I just wanted to give him a high five for all his effort. Deron Williams did. In the middle of a play. Via The Brooklyn Game: The problem…

    Mar 28, 2013, 9:28 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Paul Pierce

    Doc Rivers said before the game Wednesday he liked how consistently aggressive Jeff Green had been lately for the Celtics — that was always the thing with Green.

    Miami Heat's James reacts after a call during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Chicago

    As an isolated incident, this play where LeBron James decided to intentionally drop his shoulder and plow into a screen-setting Carlos Boozer doesn’t have much meaning. But given the point of the game when this occurred, and the fact that James was the one initiating the contact, it spoke volumes. With under four minutes remaining…

    The Heat weren’t expecting to see their 27-game winning streak snapped in Chicago on Wednesday, due to the Bulls being shorthanded and playing without Joakim Noah, Rip Hamilton, and Marco Belinelli due to injury.
