  1. Report: Chris Paul leading Clippers J.R. Smith recruitment

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:07 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    J.R. Smith is expected back in the United States this week an NBA free agent. His team in China has been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and the season ends this week. And the Clippers want him. Badly. Especially now that their starting two guard is gone for the season. The Clippers are not alone…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami crushes faith in Atlanta

    Feb 13, 2012, 2:10 AM EST

    LeBron James

    What you missed while wondering what the heck Nicki Minaj was doing at the Grammys…. Celtics 95, Bulls 91: No Derrick Rose but the Bulls made a late rally and a game of it, in our game of the day. Lakers 94, Raptors 92: The Lakers are still a disorganized mess at the end of…

  3. Report: Gilbert Arenas works out for Lakers

    Feb 12, 2012, 10:34 PM EST

    Arenas magic

    How desperate are the Lakers for a point guard? Well, they’ve talked about bringing in Allen Iverson. And now they have worked out Gilbert Arenas. That’s what Adrian Wojnarowski reports at Yahoo Sports. In a search to find some scoring for their floundering offense, Los Angeles Lakers officials attended a private workout for guard Gilbert…

  4. Celtics outlast Bulls without Rose, mostly because Rondo is awesome

    Feb 12, 2012, 8:00 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo had 32 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds. You’re pretty much not going to beat the Celtics without  a Derrick-Rose when that happens, and the Bulls did not Sunday, as they lost 95-91 in Boston. Was it a good win? Yes and no. The Celtics lead throughout, and only really allowed two significant…

  5. Kobe Bryant nails game-winner to get big win over… Raptors? PS: Don’t look at his line, go directly to count the rings.

    Feb 12, 2012, 6:33 PM EST

    Lakers' Bryant smiles in overtime of their NBA basketball game against the Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    Here, look, we’ll split this post into two sides of the coin. The first part will be glass half-full, the second part will be glass half-empty. Glass half-full:  The Lakers recovered from early losses in their Grammy’s road trip to finish 3-3 with a win over the Raptors 94-92 Sunday. They were able to fend…

  6. Derrick Rose will see a specialist Monday for back spasms he’s had for weeks. Wait, what?

    Feb 12, 2012, 4:42 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce

    Derrick Rose missed Sunday’s game against the Bulls with back spasms he’s been dealing with. But the bigger concern may be why they haven’t gone away. So Rose will be seeing a specialist on Monday, he told reporters before Chicago’s game against Boston. Via CSN Chicago: Rose will see a specialist Monday when the Bulls…

  7. Derrick Rose ruled out for Sunday’s game against Boston

    Feb 12, 2012, 2:32 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    Derrick Rose may be able to quietly slink to the bench prior to a Friday night game against the Charlotte Bobcats without much notice, but ducking out of the lineup due to injury before a nationally televised Sunday matinee against the kind-of-rival Boston Celtics? That’s another matter entirely. Chicago’s recent blowouts of the Nets and…

  8. Dwight Howard goes on rant about fourth quarter touches, even after the Magic win

    Feb 12, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Let me tell you how bad Dwight Howard‘s post-game rant in Milwaukee was. I don’t have enough room to block all the important quotes. I’m sitting here, staring at this mass of text, and that’s usually my format. Gentle intro, segue to blockquote, blockquote, discussion of blockquote, tangential remarks, unnecessarily snarky finish, the end. But…

  9. Report: Lakers have had interest in Allen Iverson. Because that will solve everything.

    Feb 12, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    Allen Iverson

    Some of you may have varying opinions on Stephen A. Smith, but I would advise you to consider the following before passing judgment on the value of a rumor sourced from him. If you ever watch SAS work a room full of All-Stars, it’s just about the most fascinating thing you’ll ever see. He’s one…

  10. Metta World Peace doesn’t like that Mike Brown relies on stats that prove Metta World Peace is playing badly

    Feb 12, 2012, 9:32 AM EST

    Metta World Peace

    Tricky thing about stats. Some of them, you can get away from. “Well, yeah, he had six turnovers, but most of those were drops by his teammates.” Or “Well, yeah, that one player named after a snake shot 28 times and only hit 11, but the offense was stagnant, he had to keep them afloat.”…

  11. Jeremy Lin comes back to earth, but inspires Knicks win

    Feb 12, 2012, 1:11 AM EST

    Ricky Rubio, Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks would not have won this game two weeks ago. And that is the true measure Linsanity — it is not just the points and assists that Jeremy Lin brings anymore, it’s about the energy and fight he has brought out of this roster. Two weeks ago the Knicks would have rolled over and…

  12. Miami’s big three tell John Wall to work hard, stay positive

    Feb 11, 2012, 10:04 PM EST

    John Wall, Wizards, Heat

    There was a time when LeBron James was trying to figure out how to get the Cleveland Cavaliers into the playoffs, when Chis Bosh was not near enough to get Toronto over .500, when Dwyane Wade was trying to figure out how to fit is game into the NBA. Basically, a time when those three…

  13. Spike Lee texts Mark Jackson “thanks” for cutting Jeremy Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 7:58 PM EST

    Jeremy Lin

    Linsanity cannot be stopped in New York… well, until Carmelo Anthony comes back and takes the ball out of Jeremy Lin’s hands. But we’re not going to worry about that yet. The legend of Lin grew Friday night when he dropped 38 on the Lakers and led the Knicks to their fourth straight win while…

  14. Cavaliers’ Anderson Varejao out indefinitely with broken wrist

    Feb 11, 2012, 6:22 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    This is a big blow to a team that had been playing better than expected but with little margin for error. Cleveland forward Anderson Varejao is out indefinitely with a broken wrist, the team announced. The injury happened in the second half Friday night when Bucks forward Drew Gooden tried to slap the ball and…

  15. Happy Valentines Day from the Memphis Grizzlies

    Feb 11, 2012, 2:59 PM EST

    ojvday

    These are so much better than those little candy hearts with the sayings on them… oh, who are we kidding, nothing is better than those little candies. Those rock. But these are close. Friday night, the last Memphis Grizzlies home game before Valentine’s Day (it’s Tuesday, go out and buy your woman something before then,…

  16. Mike Brown compares, Kobe, LeBron: It’s about the rings

    Feb 11, 2012, 1:01 PM EST

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Mike Brown is different from the last Lakers coach in a lot of ways. For example, when you ask him a direct question he’ll answer it. Even if he probably shouldn’t wade into those waters. For example, the whole “Kobe or LeBron” debate. Brown talked about it to CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger and talked about it…

  17. Video: Chris Paul drains game winner in Philly

    Feb 11, 2012, 11:59 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is good. Ridiculously good. Andre Iguodala played about as good of defense as you can on Chris Paul on the final play in Philadelphia last night, and Paul twisted, turned then faded away and drained the game winner for the Clippers like a cold-blooded assassin. There should be no debate about who is…

  18. OKC’s Scott Brooks to coach Western Conference All-Stars

    Feb 11, 2012, 10:54 AM EST

    Scott Brooks

    Congratulations Scott Brooks, your team is so good you don’t get a vacation. While Gregg Popovich is sipping wine somewhere and Vinny Del Negro is… well, I don’t want to know what Del Negro is doing, Brooks will be coaching the Western Conference All-Stars in Orlando Feb. 26. The coach of the team with the…

  19. Video: All he does is Lin

    Feb 11, 2012, 9:54 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    The Lakers were going to be the first real test, the first good defense Jeremy Lin had to face. Well, 38 points and 7 assists later, he’s made a statement.

  20. Video: Dwyane Wade with the ally-oop to LeBron

    Feb 10, 2012, 9:39 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    Your Comcast announcer is correct — being the lone defender back on a 2-on-1 break and seeing it is LeBron James and Dwyane Wade is about as bad as it gets.
