  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami gets third win in three nights

    Feb 15, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    What you missed while watching the Chipotle ad that was the best thing during the Grammys… Knicks 90, Raptors 87: What else can you say? The legend of Lin just keeps on growing. This was our game of the night. Heat 105, Pacers 90: Miami was playing their third game in three nights, Indiana had…

  2. Chicago’s Tom Thibodeau will coach Eastern All-Stars

    Feb 15, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Chicago Bulls

    This does not mean that Luol Deng is going to play 41 minutes of the All-Star Game. Probably. With their win Tuesday night, the Chicago Bulls will have the best record in the Eastern Conference on Feb. 15 at 24-7, which means Tom Thibodeau will coach the All-Star Game for his conference. Soctt Brooks of…

  3. Derrick Rose out Tuesday; Bulls re-sign Mike James

    Feb 14, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose is going to miss his third consecutive game Tuesday, his ongoing back spasms keeping him out coach Tom Thibodeau announced, as reported by CSNChicago.com. The Bulls will face the Sacramento Kings without him. Rose saw a back specialist on Monday who confirmed that this is a muscular, not structural issue. Which means he…

  4. Tuesday And-1 links: Zach Randolph is back at practice

    Feb 14, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    zach-randolph-game-6

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Zach Randolph has been cleared by doctors for non-contact practices and is expected to return to the Grizzlies in early March. That would be huge…

  5. Hawks Josh Smith ticked about All-Star Game snub

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Josh Smith of the Atlanta  Hawks walks off the court against the Chicago Bulls during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Josh Smith should have been an All-Star. He has stepped up his play with Al Horford out and is giving the Hawks 15.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.1 blocks per game, and the Hawks are your four seed in the East at 18-10. Hard to look the other way. But the reserve All-Star…

  6. Specialist finds nothing structurally wrong with Rose’s back

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:36 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls Derrick Rose attends news conference in Chicago

    The good news is, there is nothing seriously wrong with Derrick Rose’s back. The real question is will coach Tom Thibodeau allow Rose to give it the rest it needs. Rose went to see a back specialist on Monday and there is no structural damage, the issue is muscular, reports CSNChicago.com and the Chicago Tribune.…

  7. 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…

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

    Feb 13, 2012, 2:10 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 12, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 12, 2012, 4:42 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 12, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 11, 2012, 10:54 AM EDT

    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…

  13. Derrick Rose to sit against Bobcats Friday

    Feb 10, 2012, 7:32 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This is the smart thing to do. The Chicago Bulls need Derrick Rose — but they need him more Sunday against Boston and going forward as we crawl toward the playoffs the playoffs than they do Friday against the lowly Charlotte Bobcats. Rose is out Friday night, reports CSNChicago.com. C.J. Watson gets the start in…

  14. Wizards would like an actual home-court advantage

    Feb 10, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    John Wall, Trevor Booker, JaVale McGee

    There are about 30 NBA towns where MVP chants for Kobe Bryant have rung out. Pretty much the same for LeBron James and Derrick Rose. But it’s been different for the Washington Wizards — their home games have sounded more like road games at times. Combine the fact that the Wizards are not a real…

  15. Derrick Rose officially game time decision (bet he plays)

    Feb 10, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Leandro Barbosa

    Derrick Rose still has back issues — remember he left a game earlier in the week with back spasms — and he is officially a game-time decision Friday when the Bulls face the Bobcats. But he expects to play, reports Aggrey Sam at CSNChicago.com. This is exactly what Rose said Wednesday and he went out…

  16. Who got snubbed? Some All-Star roster changes

    Feb 9, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The All-Star rosters are out. The NBA coaches — who select the All-Star reserves — went with the old guard, the tried and true, and the guys whose names we know. Whether or not their play merited it this year. They ignored younger players who deserved it this year. There should be changes. Here are…

  17. Your NBA All-Star reserves announced, coaches went safe

    Feb 9, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The fans picked the five starters, but this week the coaches voted to name the reserves to the All-Star Game in Orlando. And the coaches played it safe. They went with the old names they new not the future stars. They went with veteran Joe Johnson and left out Rajon Rondo. They left out Paul…

  18. Keith Bogans out for the season

    Feb 9, 2012, 4:07 PM EDT

    Bogans Nets

    The Star-Ledger’s Colin Stephenson has the report: Poor Keith Bogans. Nets say he has a complete tear of the deltoid ligament as well as a fractured left ankle. Ouch. Just reading that is painful. Bogans started all 82 games for the Chicago Bulls last season and helped them attain the league’s best regular-season record with…

  19. Derrick Rose asked Isiah Thomas for advice on winning

    Feb 9, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    Isiah Thomas

    In the past decade, Isiah Thomas has become a punch line. Actually, the better way to phrase that is he made himself a punch line— his wounds are self-inflicted. He wrecked the Knicks. But before that, Thomas was one of the best point guards ever to play the game. A little guy who led his…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Magic cool off Heat

    Feb 9, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    What you missed while watching a guy get bit in the face by a dog on live television… Magic 102, Heat 89: Maybe the Magic owner should tell the media he doesn’t want to trade Dwight Howard before every game. Orlando played the game it wants to play — good defense (especially challenging in the…

  21. Video: Will Ferrell with the best team introductions ever

    Feb 8, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Will Ferrell semi-pro

    In case you missed us warning you earlier, Will Ferrell did the team introductions for the Bulls at Hornets game tonight, and it was vintage Ferrell. Did you know Luol Deng has a pet dolphin named Chachi? That Derrick Rose‘s favorite movie is “The Notebook?” That Trevor Ariza doesn’t think Ferrell is funny? (Just basing…

  22. Derrick Rose game time decision Wednesday

    Feb 8, 2012, 1:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    After leaving Monday night’s games with back spasms, Derrick Rose has become a game-time decision for the Bulls on Wednesday against the Hornets, tweets Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com. Rose did not take part in shootaround Wednesday but did will warm up to see how he feels before the game. Sam told NBC’s SportsTalk show yesterday…

  23. Kendrick Perkins rips LeBron for tweet about Blake dunk

    Feb 8, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin Kendrick Perkins

    When I spoke to Kendrick Perkins right after the game against the Clippers where Blake Griffin threw down the dunk of the year on him, he didn’t know what had happened. Oh, he knew he’d been dunked on spectacularly and he accepted that as part of the game when you are a shot blocker. But…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Jeremy Lin is king of New York

    Feb 7, 2012, 8:58 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin Knicks

    What you missed while thinking that even though you didn’t love Madonna’s halftime show at the Super Bowl, it was better than the Black Eyed Peas doing Tron or whatever it was the year before…. 76ers 95, Lakers 90: It was the Kobe Bryant and Lou Williams show, and it was our game of the…

  25. Derrick Rose leaves game with back spasms; now day-to-day

    Feb 6, 2012, 11:33 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    UPDATE 11:33 pm: After the game, Rose told our man Aggrey Sam at CSNChicago.com that it’s not that serious and that he is day-to-day. “Right now, I feel all right. Just back spasms, nothing to worry about. [Tuesday] we have a day off, get treatment, get a massage and hopefully I’ll be playing next game,”…
