    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is fouled by Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans in Minneapolis

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  2. Baron Davis says playing for Clippers almost killed his love of the game

    Mar 5, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Right now, the Los Angeles Clippers are the most entertaining team to watch in the NBA. They are athletic, fast paced, smart thanks to Chris Paul at the helm. They are learning to be contenders. There is a buzz around their games that is reminiscent of that other team in Staples Center — the building…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s the Deron Williams show

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:18 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while suing your college because your dorm roommate had too much sex… Celtics 115, Knicks 111 (OT): Rajon Rondo dominated Jeremy Lin, put up a monster line — 18 points, 20 assists, 17 rebounds — and got the Celtics a big win in one of our games of the day. Lakers 93,…

  4. Video: Deron Williams drops 57 points on the Bobcats

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:10 AM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams scored 57 points on just 29 shots against the Bobcats Sunday— he hit 16 of his shots and was 21-for-21 from the free throw line. You can see all of them above. Well, not the free throws, but everything else. It was an impressive performance — it is more points than any player…

  5. Jeremy Lin who? Rajon Rondo dominates in Celtics victory

    Mar 4, 2012, 5:11 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Jeremy Lin, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks

    All-Star weekend, the Nets Deron Williams (who put up 38 on the Knicks) said all the hype around Jeremy Lin would have other teams’ point guards looking to take their frustrations out on the Knicks. Meet Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard had 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists and dominated the Knicks in…

  6. Lots of people who Pau Gasol will not save want Pau Gasol

    Mar 4, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    It’s really interesting to watch the evolution of a player like Pau Gasol, not only from the public’s consciousness perspective, but from that nebulous aspect of basketball which metrics can’t define. Our ability to define efficiency and production is better than ever and shouldn’t be disregarded when considering Gasol’s value. But there is another part…

  7. Nene totally might have possibly gone to Houston if a trade that didn’t happen had happened. This is a thing, for some reason.

    Mar 3, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Nene nuggets

    I’m begging you to let this story die. No one’s happy with how the first Chris Paul trade fell apart. The NBA shouldn’t have owned the team, so that it wouldn’t have been in a position to turn down the trade as the owner (not the league; to say otherwise is basically twisting reality and…

  8. Suns shut down Blake Griffin, win ugly over the Clippers

    Mar 3, 2012, 3:39 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye, Grant Hill

    As the starting lineups took the floor Friday night in Phoenix for a nationally televised contest between the Clippers and the Suns, the matchup that looked to be far and away the most favorable for L.A. was Channing Frye against Blake Griffin. Griffin, after all, leads the league in dunks, and is so athletically gifted…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Thunder comeback

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:22 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson

    What you missed while taking Google to court because their “street view” map option caught you urinating in your front yard…. Miami 107, Trail Blazers 93: This score doesn’t do justice to how much the Heat dominated this game, which we broke down as our game of the night. Thunder 105, Magic 102: Who says…

  10. Celtics President Ainge says he anticipates Rondo “being here for a long time”

    Mar 1, 2012, 5:50 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    The Rajon Rondo trade rumors have started up again, but Celtics President Danny Ainge is doing his best to downplay them. The Boston Herald has the report: Danny Ainge, despite another wave of Rajon Rondo trade speculation, said this afternoon that he expects the all-star point guard to still be a Celtic following the March…

  11. Report: Odom meets with Cuban, will return to Mavs soon

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:34 PM EST

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Personal issues surrounding an illness with his father have kept Lamar Odom away from the Mavericks since before the All-Star break. But it’s more than just that — the entire fit with Dallas has been poor this season. Odom has not seemed happy and he is not one of those players who can compartmentalize his…

  12. Clippers ask long-time fan Clipper Darrell to stop using that name

    Mar 1, 2012, 11:04 AM EST

    clipper darrell

    This is about brand image and money getting in the way of passion. It’s about misguided loyalty. It’s about the Clippers still being the Clippers. You know Darrell Baily as Clipper Darrell — the most passionate, long-time fan the Clippers have ever had. The guy with the blue-and-red suit (and car to match). He was…

  13. Report: Celtics “aggressively” shopping Rajon Rondo

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:23 AM EST

    Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo (9) shoots over Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Knight in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    You know changes are coming to the Boston Celtics over the next few months — if not at the trade deadline certainly over the summer. The logical progression seemed to be the older “Big Three” — Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett — would be on their way out and Rajon Rondo would be…

  14. Report: Howard won’t sign extension with Lakers, but they are not out of it

    Feb 29, 2012, 12:41 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s all about the money. And it’s not necessarily as big a deal as Lakers fans think. But it might give the Lakers front office pause. Lakers radio play-by-play man (and long-time Los Angeles sports personality) John Ireland reported on Tuesday that Dwight Howard’s agent Donald Fegan told the Lakers his client will not sign…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Time to fear Brook Lopez?

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:30 AM EST

    Deshawn Stevenson

    What you missed while you were spilling beer on the German Chancellor…. Nets 93, Mavericks 92: Dallas, you did a terrible job of trying to impress Deron Williams and make him want to join your roster. Starting late in the third quarter the Mavericks went on an 0-13 shooting streak, they didn’t have a field…

  16. NBA Power Rankings: All-Star Weekend edition

    Feb 27, 2012, 4:50 PM EST

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  17. Your 2012 All-Star Game winners and losers

    Feb 27, 2012, 12:01 AM EST

    NBA/

    It’s an exhibition, but it’s still a competition. Someone has to win (the West, 152-149). Someone has to lose. We’re here to sort it all out for you. The winners. The losers. And even how you can be both. Winner: Kevin Durant. The game MVP did it all — he had maybe the best dunk…

  18. Video: Chris Paul with off-the-backboard ally-oop to Durant

    Feb 26, 2012, 11:54 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Chris Paul‘s passing makes every dunk just a little bit better. (Ask Blake Griffin if you don’t believe me.) Here Paul takes the outlet lob (can’t really call that a pass) and sets up Kevin Durant for one of the better dunks of the night. Next year for the All-Star Dunk Contest, Chris Paul should…

  19. West sets All-Star game record by scoring 88 points in the first half

    Feb 26, 2012, 8:54 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    The 2012 All-Star game hasn’t been filled with a ton of memorable highlights just yet, but here in Orlando at halftime, one of the teams has accomplished something worth noting. The West is out to an 88-69 lead over the East, and the 88 points is a record for the most scored in a half.…

  20. Kyrie Irving scores 34 points, named MVP of the Rising Stars Challenge

    Feb 24, 2012, 11:55 PM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Kyrie Irving was the number one overall pick in last year’s NBA draft, but he was largely selected there for his ability to create for his teammates first, with his scoring being an afterthought. In the Rising Stars Challenge, which kicked off All-Star weekend on Friday, he showcased what’s possible for him offensively, scoring 34…

  21. Chris Paul confirms he will stay with Clippers next season

    Feb 23, 2012, 7:20 PM EST

    Chris Paul

    When Chris Paul was traded to the Clippers, it was with the understanding that he would give them a couple years — this season, and he would opt-in for next season. Opt in for a cool $17.8 million. But there was a concern he would opt-out after this season, either to go play with someone…

  22. Warriors willing to trade Monta Ellis, but only for superstar

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:26 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    In an annual tradition like Meryl Streep getting an Oscar nomination, the Monta Ellis trade rumors have started to swirl. Golden State likes Monta Ellis for all the same reasons you covet him for your team — there are few better pure scorers in the league. At the end of the day, putting ball in…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lin, ‘Melo play together well

    Feb 23, 2012, 5:58 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    What you missed while stacking 2.5 feet of pancakes… Warriors 106, Suns 104: We have other details, but you really should just click this link to see Monta Ellis’ game winning shot. Knicks 99, Hawks 82: It was just a second game with everyone healthy on the Knicks, but you could see an improved chemistry.…

  24. Report: Lakers interested in trading for Michael Beasley

    Feb 21, 2012, 10:57 AM EST

    Michael Beasley

    The Lakers need scoring, they need someone who can create his own shot not on the perimeter not named Kobe Bryant, they need depth. And they are desperate enough to consider Michael Beasley. No, this is not a Pau Gasol trade — come on, nobody is that stupid — but there have been talks, according…

  25. Report: Kobe’s rant directed at dysfunctional Lakers front office

    Feb 21, 2012, 8:26 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    There has been a growing buzz around the Lakers this year that as Jim Buss — son of long-time owner Jerry Buss — has taken control of the Lakers organization, nobody is sure what direction it is steering. That includes Kobe Bryant. Which is why he made the remarks he did about the need to…
