    Mar 8, 2013, 10:06 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Pretty much every week on Inside the NBA, Shaquille O’Neal and the crew have fun at JaVale McGee’s expense. Especially on Shaq’s blooper reel “Shaqtin a Fool,” where McGee is a fixture. After the Nuggets beat the Clippers Thursday McGee did the live remote and went on Inside the NBA, where Shaq was doing his…

    Josh Smith, Wilson Chandler, JaVale McGee

    Wilson Chandler would like you to know the Denver Nuggets can put on a show in transition, too. On this play Ty Lawson strips Grant Hill, gets the ball ahead to Andre Iguodala, who in turn hits Chandler who has run the floor hard straight to the rim. Matt Barnes tries to make a play…

  3. J.R. Smith has monster night… until the shot that matters most (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' guard J.R. Smith misses a shot over Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook at end of fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    With Carmelo Anthony out, the Knicks needed points — enter J.R. Smith. The veteran swingman was firing away and hitting difficult, contested shots all night long. Smith ended the night with 36 points on 14-of-29 shooting. But with the game on the line Knicks coach Mike Woodson called Smith’s number and he took one of…

  4. Nuggets continue home dominance, win seventh straight by blowing out the Clippers

    Mar 8, 2013, 1:37 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Denver Nuggets

    When you think of the best teams in the league who have consistently dominated opponents on their home floor all season long, the Denver Nuggets probably aren’t at the top of your list. But they should be. After thrashing the Clippers on Thursday by a final of 107-92, the Nuggets are now 27-3 at home,…

    Mar 8, 2013, 12:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Smith walks off the floor after missing a shot in their NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in New York

    Initially, a little of the luster was lost from the TNT matchup between the Knicks and the Thunder when it was learned that Carmelo Anthony would be forced to sit out his second straight game due to a sore right knee. J.R. Smith took it upon himself to carry the offensive load for New York…

  6. Kevin Love taking a polar plunge for charity

    Mar 7, 2013, 10:32 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love has spent plenty of time this year icing his right hand, which he broke in preseason then re-fractured just 18 games into his return. He’s going to do it again, just this time he’s going to ice the rest of his body, too. Love is going to take part in a Polar Bear…

    Mar 7, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Miami's Dwyane Wade fouls Indiana's Paul George during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis.

    The Miami Heat are at 16 wins in a row — one short of the season high (the Clippers got to 17, remember) and just approaching halfway to the NBA’s all-time record (33 for the 1972 Lakers), but the talk has started to focus on how long the Heat’s streak can go on. A real…

    Carmelo Anthony will miss his second straight game on Thursday due to a sore right knee, Mike Woodson confirmed to reporters before tip-off.

    Mar 7, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Ramon Sessions

    Because the Bobcats needed something else to go wrong….

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

  11. Rockets give GM Daryl Morey four-year extension

    Mar 7, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Daryl Morey, James Harden

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been more popular outside Houston and with the media — particularly the NBA blogosphere — than inside Houston. They keep hearing about the brilliance but what they saw was a team that was pretty mediocre at best (because the bodies of Tracy McGrady and Yao Ming gave out, both pre-Morey…

  12. If Kyrie Irving’s knee keeps bothering him, Cavs may shut him down

    Mar 7, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Cleveland has to look at everything Kyrie Irving related as long term. There is nothing to play for this season. There was no rush to bring Irving back from the knee injury that cost him the first half of the season. So when after Wednesday night’s Cavaliers win Irving said his knee was still bothering…

    Mar 7, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    Marcin Gortat

    Marcin Gortat, one of the few reliable players on the Suns night in and night out this season (and a guy whose role has shrunk as they try to develop young players) could be done for the year. The Suns announced that Gortat has a sprained foot and would be out three to four weeks.…

  14. Look at the Lakers, look at the math and Utah should be nervous

    Mar 7, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Metta World Peace

    The Lakers keep on winning — even if it requires them to come from 25 points down on the road against the Hornets (who despite their record have been playing better lately). But that was only half the equation — the Lakers were always going to need help from one or more of the teams…

  16. Dwight Howard tries to clarify thoughts on Orlando, teammates

    Mar 7, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Whenever someone famous tries to clarify a previous statement, does it really help? Nonetheless, Dwight Howard felt obligated. In a recent interview he said about Orlando that “…was a team full of people who nobody wanted, and I was the leader and I led that team with a smile on my face.” I can’t imagine…

  17. Hornets’ Austin Rivers out 4-6 weeks with broken hand

    Mar 7, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT

    Austin Rivers

    Toronto Raptors Rudy Gay reacts against the Golden State Warriors during the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    Rudy Gay won a lot of fans over when he first went to Toronto, but since then he has burned through a lot of that capital he built up. Gay is scoring 19.8 points a game but is shooting just 39 percent overall and 23.3 percent from three. Sorry to tell you this Raptors fans,…

  19. Report: Sixers almost acquired Josh Smith at deadline

    Mar 7, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Devin Harris

    On paper it’s an impressive front line — Andrew Bynum and Josh Smith. On the court… that would have been interesting. I mean, assuming Bynum ever gets back on the court. Like the Bucks backcourt, it could be both amazing and painfully bad, not even game to game but quarter to quarter. We will not…

  20. Dwight Howard blocks Robin Lopez to save Lakers win (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Robin Lopez, Al-Farouq Aminu, Dwight Howard

    There were two parts to the Lakers dramatic comeback win, when the Lakers outscored the Hornets 33-9 in the fourth quarter. One part was Kobe Bryant taking over on the offensive end of the floor. He gets most of the kudos and most of the highlights because his effort is easy to quantify. The other…
