Kyrie Irving returns to the lineup from injury with his Cavaliers now just three games out of the playoffs.

The Cavaliers really do like Scotty Hopson, a 6’7” two guard from Tennessee last seen playing in Turkey. However, they gave him a big deal to set him up as trade bait around the NBA Draft.

As has been expected since the day he stepped on the Kansas campus, Andrew Wiggins has declared for the NBA Draft. He is in the mix for the No. 1 overall pick.

The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

On Feb. 5, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Lakers, who literally ran out of players. That was the low point for Cleveland, which had already made its big splash by trading for Luol Deng and still lost six straight to fall to 12th – behind Boston! – in a putrid Eastern Conference. The season…

So you’re saying there’s a chance. If you’re a diehard Cavaliers fan you can believe there is still a chance your team makes the playoffs — Cleveland is 2.5 games back of an eighth-seed Hawks team in free fall, and the Knicks close out the season with seven straight games against +.500 teams. Cleveland needs…

The Portland Trail Blazers began the season a red-hot 31-9. Since, they’ve gone an underwhelming 17-18 – but that 35-game stretch has produced a better winning percentage than Portland had in either of the last two seasons. All success is relative. Though Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts is no longer the Coach of the Year…

Spencer Hawes tried to tell David West not to pick on his smaller teammate. West, as you might imagine, had no interest in hearing it.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

Jarrett Jack was 3-for-9 with more turnovers (two) than assists (one) and his Cleveland Cavaliers trailed the Detroit Pistons by a dozen when he re-entered last night’s game midway through the fourth quarter. On his first possession, he launched a 3-pointer and held held his follow-through as the ball swished through the net. That was…

Dion Waiters hit the tough long two as time expired on Wednesday to give his Cavaliers a win over the Pistons. Detroit led by as many as 16 at one point, which was the only thing remarkable about this one save for Waiters hitting the clutch shot. Matthew Delladova was Cleveland’s leading scorer with 21…

Midway through the fourth quarter of the Nets’ overtime loss to the Bobcats, Jorge Gutierrez came down with two hands on Cody Zeller, causing both players to come crashing to the floor. The play was originally ruled a flagrant-one, but after the referees reviewed it, the ruling was changed to a flagrant-two which resulted in an…

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while eating a $250 hamburger… Jarrett Jack, Cleveland Cavaliers. Earlier on Sunday the Atlanta Hawks had lost and so the Knicks had real motivation at the Garden vs. the Cavaliers — win and NY is just two games back of the last playoff spot in…

The Cavaliers’ Jarrett Jack was in the zone in the second half. The Knicks had led by 17 in the second quarter — and with a win they would move within 2 games of the final playoff spot in the East. Then Jack happened. He was knocking down rainbow jumpers, getting into the lane and…

Kevin Durant had his latest technical foul rescinded, but two more and he’ll receive a one-game suspension.
Mar 22, 2014, 5:00 PM EST
It’s factually and subjectively wrong.

Then he won’t mind this post.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames on the first day… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. Credit the Milwaukee Bucks, they would not roll over, they fought and made Golden State work for it. Stephen Curry was the guy that was not going to…

Kevin Durant got a technical foul for this?

That needed a Mutombo finger wag. Much to their credit the Cleveland Cavaliers hung around with the Miami Heat all game — and doing it without Kyrie Irving or Luol Deng. The difference in the game was LeBron James — 25 points in the first quarter and 43 for the game. Plus a couple key…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking it’s crazy that “Lost” is 10 years old… LeBron James, Miami Heat. Nobody likes it when their ex-girlfriend walks into the party looking smoking hot. LeBron pretty much did that to the Cavaliers on Tuesday night — he had 25 points in the…
