  1. It does not sound like Andre Miller will return to the Nuggets

    May 13, 2012, 4:03 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Andre Miller was traded on draft night last year to Denver, and from the start it was an odd fit. Miller had signed with Portland as a free agent and wanted to be considered a top tier player. He had struggled with Nate McMillan and despite his chemistry with LaMarcus Aldridge, was moved for what…

  2. Clippers-Grizzlies Game 7: Somebody’s going to the second round, somebody’s going home

    May 13, 2012, 12:20 PM EST

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers face off in Game 7 Sunday. Here are five things to watch. 1. At Least You’ve Got Your Health, Or Not: It’s become a pretty big deal that Blake Griffin has a sore knee (no ligament damage known of at this time) and that Chris Paul has a…

  3. Report: Raptors to aim for Nash, and if not… Lin?

    May 13, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    The Raptors are constantly going to be linked to Steve Nash because of Bryan Colangelo’s link to Nash’s Suns which Colangelo was GM for. So naturally, with the Raptors improving, having cap space, and Nash poised to hit the open market, there’s talk of him heading to his native country to finish his career. But…

    May 13, 2012, 2:26 AM EST

    gasol-nuggets-game-7

    It wasn’t easy for the Lakers in Game 7, just as it wasn’t easy for them the entire series. But in the end, L.A. was at full strength for the first time this postseason, and played to its strengths for much of the night, ending Denver’s season 96-87 at Staples Center on Saturday, and advancing…

  5. Celtics 92 Sixers 91: Tell us you didn’t see this coming

    May 12, 2012, 11:25 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers  v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. The Boston Celtics play badly for 2.5 quarters, scrap and grind their way to get the deficit into reasonable territory, then turn on the jets while the other team does a series of remarkably stupid things, going away from everything that had worked the entire game through,…

  6. Video: “Nervous” LeBron James accepts third MVP award

    May 12, 2012, 8:59 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    As we told you was coming, LeBron James officially became the winner of the NBA MVP for the third time, the official announcement came down on Saturday. What you see above are some highlights of his acceptance speech. James said he was nervous and then went on to thank his mother, Gloria, for all she…

  7. Pacers coach Frank Vogel fined for planting seed in refs’ heads

    May 12, 2012, 7:57 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel complains to an official during the second quarter of Game 1 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs against the Orlando Magic in Indianapolis

    There will be no working the referees through the media before the series starts. That is what the NBA essentially said when it came down Saturday with a $15,000 fine for Pacers coach Frank Vogel less than a day before his team opens the second round against the Heat. Vogel started trying to plant a…

  8. Lakers enter damage control around Magic’s Mike Brown statements

    May 12, 2012, 6:40 PM EST

    Image (1) magic-johnson-thumb-250x166-16283.jpg for post 3243

    See, and here’s the problem with having your franchise legend, former owner, and acting VP as an “analyst” on television. When Magic Johnson made comments regarding Mike Brown being fired if the Lakers were to lose Game 7 Saturday night, it set off more alarms than usual. Typically, a studio analyst making a comment like…

  9. In Game 7, can Lakers finally answer questions haunting them?

    May 12, 2012, 3:58 PM EST

    Lakers' Gasol, Bryant and Bynum react after losing to the Nuggets following their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff game in Los Angeles

    It’s a do-or-die Game 7, but the questions are the same one since Game 1. Can the Nuggets get the Lakers to play their up-tempo, scattered game? Can anyone on the Lakers stop Ty Lawson? Can the Lakers slow the game down, pound the ball inside to their big men and use their size and…

  10. What does Kobe Bryant expect from Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum?

    May 12, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol of Spain walk towards the bench for a time out after losing possession of the ball against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant has just about had it with his teammates not showing up, and that’s pretty evident. When he refused to quit and played well with gastroenteritis in Game 6 and his teammates no-showed, you knew there would be consequences. Bryant has come too far and done too much to get that kind of performance from…

  11. LeBron James and an award we’ve made hollow

    May 12, 2012, 11:49 AM EST

    Miami Heat forward James reacts after his second quarter dunk against the New York Knicks during Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff in Miami

    For just about anyone else winning the NBA’s Most Valuable Award would be a good thing, with no downside. It’s an award that carries legitimate weight, not just in terms of current cultural cache, but longer-lasting greatness in the context of a player’s legacy. It should be cause for celebration. But for LeBron James, it’s…

  12. Magic Johnson thinks Mike Brown can’t survive a Game 7 loss

    May 12, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Magic Johnson

    It’s amazing when people tend to dismiss what Magic Johnson says about the Lakers. He’s arguably the greatest player in franchise history, is known as a close and personal friend of owner Jerry Buss, still holds an official positions inside the front office, has held an ownership stake in the team as recently as two…

  13. Where in the world is DeAndre Jordan?

    May 12, 2012, 9:04 AM EST

    Clippers' Jordan reacts during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff series against Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    Last summer, the Golden State Warriors were looking for a big man to put next to David Lee and forced the Clippers hand — would the Clippers match a four year, $48.2 million contract offer for DeAndre Jordan? How badly did the Clippers want to keep Jordan next to Blake Griffin? Badly enough to match…

  14. Video: Blake Griffin dives, DeAndre Jordan dunks

    May 12, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    Clippers' Griffin slam dunks against Grizzlies during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    When that play happened, it felt like a turning point. Blake Griffin was fighting through a knee injury and was not himself. DeAndre Jordan has been a ghost this series. But this might have been the play of the night and felt like the Clippers that fill up the highlight reels. The game was close…

  15. Grizzlies steal Clippers’ script — come from behind to win, force Game 7

    May 12, 2012, 1:26 AM EST

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    In the first four games of this series, Chris Paul owned the fourth quarter, while at the same time the Grizzlies would get away from their game plan of pounding the Clippers inside with Zach Randolph. It’s why Los Angeles had a 3-1 series lead. There will be a Game 7 Sunday because that script…

  16. NBA admits blown call at end of Hawks loss to Celtics

    May 11, 2012, 10:31 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett celebrates after regaining posession of the ball in front of Atlanta Hawks Al Horford during the second half of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series in Boston

    Sorry Hawks fans, this sucks. And there is no recourse. The NBA has admitted referees blew call in the final seconds Thursday that could have changed the outcome of the Hawks Game 6 loss to Boston that eliminated them. If you were watching the TNT broadcast you heard the announcing crew confused by the call…

    Miami Heat's James and Wade look on during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Chicago

    Because we know you plan your lives around the NBA playoffs just like we do, here is the schedule for the two Eastern Conference semifinals. At least as it stands right now. There is a whole lot of TBD in there for times. If you want to talk about the series, we have previewed both…

  18. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin to start for Clippers, may be limited

    May 11, 2012, 8:05 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    They will be out there, how effective they are remains to be seen. Both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will start for the Clippers despite suffering injuries in Game 5, coach Vinny Del Negro confirmed. However, he said he would monitor both and might limit their minutes depending on how they are moving and performing…

  19. Report: LeBron James to be named NBA MVP

    May 11, 2012, 7:32 PM EST

    Miami Heat forward James reacts after his second quarter dunk against the New York Knicks during Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff in Miami

    It’s not yet official, but this really isn’t a surprise either. LeBron James is going to be named the NBA MVP, a source has told the Associated Press. A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Miami’s LeBron James will be announced Saturday as the NBA’s MVP, the third time he’s won…

  20. Banged-up Clippers look to wrap up Grizzlies in Game 6

    May 11, 2012, 6:03 PM EST

    Clippers guard Paul and forward Griffin return to the court following an injury to Griffin against the Grizzlies during the second half of game five in the Western Conference quarterfinals of the 2012 NBA playoffs in Memphis

    For Memphis, Game 6 is must win. For the Clippers, it isn’t that (they are up 3-2) but it’s about as close as you can get, because if they have to go win Game 7 on the road they face climbing K2. It’s a big mountain. Which makes Game 6 in Los Angeles on Friday…
