    Jan 29, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Indiana is the best team in the NBA right now — they have the best record in the league (by percentage points over Oklahoma City) and they have the best point differential in the league.

  5. What malaise? Chris Bosh, Miami look sharp in blowout win over Spurs

    Jan 26, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat

    Miami just needed a challenge, apparently. The Heat had coasted through the last few weeks, still winning some games but not looking sharp, looking like a team that was bored with the season. Like a team a little tired and just waiting for the playoffs. Then the Spurs came to town and Miami woke up…

    Golden State was the more talented team on the floor Thursday night, but they ended up on losing to a depleted Spurs team. Why?

It’s also likely to be among the most painful to remember by the losing team’s players. San…

    DeJuan Blair, Gregg Popovich

    Not everybody loves Gregg Popovich. Meet DeJuan Blair.

However, he fell out of the rotation last season as Popovich went with the…

  20. Spurs’ run finally over? An annual question

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-PRACTICE

    Tim Duncan is 37. Manu Ginobili is 35. Tony Parker, the youngest of the Spurs’ famed trio, is 31. All three have significant mileage from NBA regular seasons, long playoff runs and international play. Are they over the hill to the point San Antonio’s run finally ended?

    Gregg Popovich is the best coach in basketball right now. One of the best of all time. He has four rings and built a culture in San Antonio that has them in NBA Finals 14 years apart and with consistent 50+ win seasons in between. But he is not perfect. He made a couple decisions…

    That was a great game. And Game 7 sets up to be something special.

Tim Duncan had been a force, with countermoves spinning Chris Bosh around and…
