    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Brooklyn Nets GM Billy King wants to be a player at the trade deadline. Maybe it’s because he realizes his very expensive Nets roster is on the third tier in the East. Maybe it’s because King’s contract is up at the end of this season. Maybe when you combine those two facts with an impatient…

Or, what you missed while reading up on the gory, unromantic history of Valentines Day… Lakers 91, Suns 85: The Lakers won this one eventually, but as has been the case plenty of times throughout the season, they made it unnecessarily difficult on themselves.

    Feb 13, 2013, 1:36 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James chews his mouthpiece during timeout against the Portland Trail Blazers in their NBA game in Miami

    It seems like we should just rename this the LeBron James and two other guys of the night award, given the tear the league’s reigning MVP has been on over the last six games. We’ll get to that shortly, but first, a couple of other performances that are more than worth mentioning. Third Star: Dwight…

    Feb 12, 2013, 10:29 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Lou Amundson has had an up-and-down few years in his “energy guy off the bench” role. He did well in Phoenix a for a couple years, had less success two seasons ago for Golden State and even less last season in Indiana. The power forward struggled enough for the Timberwolves this season — mainly an…

    Feb 12, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There were plenty of great Clippers highlights from their destruction of the Sixers on Monday, and this one’s great in its own way — it just didn’t happen to result in two points. It’s a little unfair to say DeAndre Jordan “airballed” this alley-oop attempt, even though technically that’s exactly what happened. He underestimated his…

    Feb 12, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Basic math will tell you that there is no such thing as “110 percent,” a commonly used sports cliche.
