    The Miami Heat could really use Udonis Haslem. They could use the depth, the strength inside, the rebounding, the defense. The Heat had hoped to get Haslem back from the torn ligament in his left foot by the start of the playoffs, but before tonight’s game in Cleveland Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Haslem wouldn’t…

  2. Coach K stirs up Duke vs. Fab 5 issue again. Ugh.

    Mar 29, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Grant Hill and Jalen Rose hugged it out. Or talked it out. Or tweeted it out. So finally we can put this whole Fab 5 vs. Duke thing to bed…. Then here comes Mike Krzyzewski. Like your grandfather that just heard about this Lady Gaga person and wants to tell you she can’t sing, he…

  3. LeBron’s entourage gets turned away from Cleveland arena

    Mar 29, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    There was a time — just a mere 11 months ago — when LeBron James and his crew had the run of Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Some say they ran the place. If they wanted an ice sculpture of a Harley-Davidson waiting on their arrival for each game, it was there. No more. When…

  4. UCLA, USC stars among those declaring for NBA Draft

    Mar 29, 2011, 4:32 PM EDT

    UCLA v Florida

    A number of college underclassmen are lining up to enter the NBA draft, lockout or no. Well, most are really testing the waters — if they don’t sign with an agent they do not lose eligibility and can return to college. But there are some names to watch and here are some of them. Tyler…

  5. Stan Van Gundy is sick of the Knicks/Heat hype

    Mar 29, 2011, 3:46 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Well, at least Stan Van Gundy will not get fined for ripping David Stern this time. But we did want to bring you his mini-rant before his Magic — minus Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick — went out and lost to the Knicks. He spoke for a lot of NBA fans (and team employees) outside…

  6. Derrick Rose’s season inspires John Wall

    Mar 29, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Washington Wizards

    Each year Derrick Rose has stepped on the court, he has gotten better. Each of his three seasons he has taken on more and more of the Chicago offense but his true shooting percentage has gone up each year (that’s his points per shot attempt, counting threes and fouls), his assist percentages have gone up,…

  7. Cavaliers bring out big gun… well Baron Davis, for Heat

    Mar 29, 2011, 2:02 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    There has been less hype, maybe there will be less venom when the Heat return to Cleveland for the second time this Tuesday. The game was not even a sell out hours before tip off. Maybe it will be more basketball and less circus. We can hope, anyway. But make no mistake the Cavs want…

  8. Video: Making of those NBA time-travel commercials

    Mar 29, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    KEVIN-DURANT-NEW-NBA

    Interesting video posted by our friends at Dime Magazine (via TrueHoop), a look behind those NBA time-travel ads (with Steve Nash here, but they were done with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and more). Which frankly, are not my favorite. You get the chance to go back in time and you use it to tell some…

  9. Starters ride the pine in Utah, which makes Al Jefferson mad

    Mar 29, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Al Jefferson, Zach Zarba

    Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin went with the kids. He went with the hot hand. The Utah Jazz starters had trailed the Washington Wizards by as many as 12 points, so when the youth movement — led by rookie Derrick Favors and his 9 fourth quarter points on 4-of-4 shooting — made a comeback they got…

  10. Jermaine O’Neal back practicing with Celtics, may play this week

    One of the O’Neals is ready to return to Boston. Jermaine O’Neal will return from knee surgery to Boston practices this week and said he hopes to be playing center Thursday night against the Spurs in a battle of the slumping superpowers. Doc Rivers said fat chance he’ll play that soo our man A. Sherrod…

  11. Ricky Rubio rumors: Lockout remains key issue

    Mar 29, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    You have to admire the unrelenting optimism in Minnesota that Ricky Rubio is going to play with the team next season. But even that Midwestern, can-do optimism knows limits — the lockout is strangling that hope right out of Wolves fans. Check out this note from the Pioneer Press where — like only in the…

  12. Somebody get Ray Allen the ball. The man can shoot.

    Mar 29, 2011, 10:57 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    Boston’s offense is off. In their last 10 games, Boston’s offense has averaged 104 points per 100 possessions, down from their 106.4 points per 100 for the season (based on the Knickerblogger numbers). Ray Allen is part of that — he is shooting 44.3 percent in the last 10 games, down from 49.3 percent for…

  13. Sacramento tells Anaheim to back off, Maloofs get ticked

    Mar 29, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    As always, it’s about the money. It’s always about the money. The latest noise in the seemingly inevitable move of the Kings out of Sacramento to Anaheim is that the Sacramento City Manager sent a letter, vaguely threatening legal action, if Anaheim did not back off its efforts to lure the Kings. The Sacramento Bee…

  14. PBT Tuesday morning one liners

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    The big story in Philly: Lou Williams and some others Sixers went to the Lil’ Wayne concert Saturday night before a noon-tipoff Sunday against the Kings. And the Sixers lost and some fans are blaming the night out (even though Jrue Holiday went and played well). This is mostly about Williams off shooting day, and…

  15. Video: Vintage Carmelo Anthony night gets Knicks win

    Mar 29, 2011, 9:02 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    That was vintage Carmelo Anthony Monday night. His team needed a win and he put up 39 points hitting shots with a man in his face all night. He controlled the offense and the game in the second half. Watch the video. The flip side is he shot a pedestrian 46.1 percent, he took the…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Ugly or not, Knicks and Pacers will take wins

    Mar 29, 2011, 8:52 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while you were stealing a 600-pound bronze moose statue… Knicks 113, Magic 106 (OT): The Kicks were desperate for a win. The Magic were without Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick which meant heavy doses of Gilbert Arenas (who was 1-of-7 from three). Dwight Howard fouled out. That meant a streak breaking win…

  17. Quote of the day: Van Gundy defends D’Antoni

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    “As a coach, you don’t worry about that stuff too much because it goes with the business and we all will face a lot of criticism at times. That’s the way it goes. The rest of us all know tha tMike’s a hell of a coach. In that profession, we all know how good Mike…

  18. Jameer Nelson to miss Knicks game with knee injury

    Mar 28, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    NELSON_JAMEER

    According to Ken Berger of CBS, Gilbert Arenas will start at point guard for the Magic tonight in the place of Jameer Nelson, who is out with a sprained right knee. The Magic are playing on the road against the free-falling New York Knicks, who desperately need a win. Ronny Turiaf is also injured, which…

  19. Derek Fisher receives retroactive flagrant-2 foul for incident with Chris Kaman

    Mar 28, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    During the Lakers’ 112-104 win over the Clippers on Friday, things got a little heated between Derek Fisher and Chris Kaman. In the game’s final 30 seconds, and with its ultimate result having already been decided, Kaman went to set a screen away from the ball, beyond the three-point line on Fisher. That’s when the…

  20. NBA season-ticket holders to receive refunds plus interest if games are lost due to work stoppage

    nba-tickets-thunder

    As the seemingly inevitable lockout looms over the NBA this summer, the very real possibility that the league could cancel games may be on the minds of its many season-ticket holders. Individual and business customers alike may be thinking about holding onto that money, while waiting to see if in fact there will be a…
