    Apr 30, 2012, 4:36 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol, Caron Butler

    When things went wrong for the Clippers for the first 39 minutes of Game 1 against Memphis, they went terribly wrong. They were able to come back from most of that and get the win. But one thing will linger — Caron Butler has a broken left hand and will be out at least a…

    Tyson-Chandler-and-Mike-Krzyzewski

    When USA Basketball announced the pool of players it would choose from to select who would represent the USA at the London Olympics this summer, there were 20 names. Now, there are 16 who can go. Dwight Howard (back), LaMarcus Aldridge (hip) and Chauncey Billups (Achilles) are out due to injury and surgery, while Lamar…

  4. Report: Lamar Odom no longer considered for Olympics

    Apr 13, 2012, 11:15 AM EDT

    odomusa

    Way back in the Summer of 2010, Lamar Odom was a key part of Team USA winning the FIBA World Championships — his versatile game blends in beautifully with the international style of basketball. He can knock down threes or play in the post, and the things that make him a tough cover in the…

    Kevin Durant

    What you missed while hiring a nude maid service…. Knicks 111, Bucks 107: In a must-win game for both teams, the Knicks got the stops and gutted out a win that likely sends them to the playoffs. Clippers 100, Thunder 98: On the ESPN studio show, injured Clippers guard Chauncey Billups said the key to…

  6. It’s OK if there’s no mania behind Jimmer

    Mar 24, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    “The first time he didn’t play [on Feb. 2 against Portland], people were calling the paper and pitching their theories,” said Jason Jones, the Kings’ beat writer for The Sacramento Bee. “People don’t want to believe that he might not be ready to play. They want to believe Keith has it in for him.” The…

  7. Clippers crossroads: Is Vinny Del Negro’s job in danger?

    Mar 22, 2012, 10:23 AM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    The Clippers are regressing. They have gone 7-11 since Chauncey Billups went down with his Achilles injury and they have looked a mess, including a blowout loss to the Thunder Wednesday. The Clippers have not played good defense all season but early on their offense was able to overwhelm teams — Chris Paul in the…

  8. Surveying trade deadline landscape: League’s second tier got better

    Mar 16, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Nick Young

    As you survey the NBA landscape in the aftermath of the storm that is always the NBA trade deadline, and a couple things leap out: First, the title contenders did not change — and they all stood pat. In the East, the path to the finals goes through Miami and Chicago and nobody really moved…

  9. Denver trades Nene to Wizards in three-team deal with Clippers

    Mar 15, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison, Nene

    When the lockout ended, Nene was maybe the most coveted free agent out there — a true big man who is a borderline All-Star theoretically entering his prime. Denver was able to keep him with a five-year, $67 million contract. However, he has spent a chunk of this season injured and not putting up his…

  10. Report: D’Antoni wanted to trade ‘Melo for Deron Williams

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:04 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    We know that now-former New York Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni and team owner James Dolan met Wednesday morning and came out of that meeting deciding to resign because of differences in how they saw the future of the organization. Those differences were major — D’Antoni wanted to trade Carmelo Anthony to the Nets for Deron…

  11. Why did Celtics win their first year together while Heat fell short, Clippers struggle?

    Mar 12, 2012, 10:19 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    The Boston Celtics have been the model. In 2008 they brought together a big three — Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen coming in to join Paul Pierce — and that first year they won a title. It was instant success, they were the team to beat in the NBA that season from day one. Last…

  12. Reports: Portland shopping Crawford to Clippers, Bobcats

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Jamal Crawford and his up-tempo, shoot-first-and-ask-questions-later style has not meshed with the grind it out ways of Nate McMillan in Portland. It hasn’t been fun for him. What could possibly be worse. Charlotte. On the other hand, he could land with everyone’s new favorite team the Clippers. There are a few different reports out there.…

  13. Clippers not likely to get Ray Allen, won’t risk long term for short

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:48 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    It’s pretty easy to picture the Clippers as a serious threat to the Thunder in the West if they added Ray Allen — the Celtics sharp shooter who takes on the Clippers Monday night. The Clippers have struggled with production from the two guard spot since Chauncey Billups went down with an Achilles tendon injury.…

  14. Report: Magic seek package similar to ‘Melo deal for Howard

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard;  Jerryd Bayless ; Chris Duhon

    Orlando still has not decided that they are going to trade Dwight Howard — in fact, they seem to be leaning toward keeping him through the trade deadline and the end of the season — but if they do move him they are letting teams know what they want: A haul like Denver got last…

  15. Clippers, Timberwolves may be interested in trading for Jamal Crawford

    Mar 6, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    From Hoopsworld’s Yannis Koutroupis: The Portland Trail Blazers are enduring a trying season at 18-19 and changes could be on the horizon. One Blazer who is garnering a lot of interest in particular is shooting guard Jamal Crawford. Sources confirm to HOOPSWORLD that Crawford, who was signed as an unrestricted free agent this offseason to…

  16. Report: Clippers interested in Ray Allen

    Mar 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Clippers have struggled without Chauncey Billups, missing their legitimate shooter at 2-guard and his ability to help manage the offense alongside CP3. (Who would have thought he’d need help?) So the Clippers have started showing up in trade rumors, and the latest one is both intriguing and bizarre.…

  17. Report: Pierce, Allen drawing more trade interest than Rondo

    Mar 1, 2012, 4:07 PM EDT

    paul-pierce--ray-allen-game-4-of-the-2008-nba-finals

    All the buzz today on your television and sports talk radio has been the idea that the Boston Celtics are ready to move Rajon Rondo. And they are — GM Danny Ainge isn’t “shopping” Rondo in the sense he is not calling around desperately trying to trade Rondo for a couple role players, the Celtics…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dirk Nowitzki is still good

    Feb 21, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    What you missed while trying to find something to watch now that Downton Abbey is over….. Nets 100, Knicks 92: Deron Williams would like you to know he is the best point guard in the greater New York area, and will be next year when the Nets move to Brooklyn (unless he leaves to play…

    Feb 20, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    If you’re going to ease Carmelo Anthony back into the new-look Knicks, this is the best way to do it — against the worst defense in the league. Carmelo Anthony will be back with the Knicks in the starting lineup Monday against the Nets, the team announced. He will start (Iman Shumpert will come off…

  20. NBA Power Rankings: Streaking Heat, Spurs land on top

    Feb 20, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Miami has looked dominant the last week, while Tony Parker may be the best player in basketball the last two weeks so the Spurs climb. At the bottom, things look familiar. 1. Heat (24-7, last week ranked 1). They became the third team in the NBA to sweep a back-to-back-to-back (Bulls, Thunder), but they did…

  21. Steve Nash, Alvin Gentry defend decision to rest Suns’ stars

    Feb 16, 2012, 9:24 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    The Suns aren’t a team that’s stacked with talent; Steve Nash has said so himself at multiple times this season, going as far back as training camp last December. And given the team’s sub-.500 position in the standings, it certainly can’t afford to play games without its best offensive creator in Nash, and its best…

  22. Report: J.R. Smith deciding between Knicks, Clippers

    Feb 16, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Wednesday in China, J.R. Smith hopped on a plane and said “zai zian” to the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association where he played during the lockout. His team is out of the playoffs and he is on his way home. The only question is, where is that plane going to land? New…

    In the next 24 hours, J.R. Smith will be on the long flight from China — where he signed to play during the lockout — back to the United States. He tweeted this the other day. Ladies and Gentleman I am happy to tell you my return to the United States is offical! I will…

  24. Carmelo says playing with Lin will be “dream come true”

    Feb 13, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    Reportedly, it was Carmelo Anthony — in street clothes due to a pulled groin — going to Mike D’Antoni at halftime of the Knicks game against New Jersey and suggesting to play Jeremy Lin more that kicked off “Linsanity.” Monday, the guy who came to New York to see himself on the back pages of…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs advancing, Heat still on top

    Feb 13, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    I’m beginning to wonder: Will the Eastern Conference Finals be the real NBA finals this year? Feels that way some days. 1. Heat (21-7, last week ranked 1) The Magic and Knicks combined to shoot 85 threes against the Heat in two nights. The Heat’s defensive energy does that to teams, makes them settle (although…
