  3. After fourth straight loss Trail Blazers hold team meeting

    Mar 13, 2014, 1:31 PM EDT

    Terry Stotts, Damian Lillard

    Portland has lost four in a row and is 7-9 in their last 16 games. In a tight Western Conference, that is trouble — gone is home court advantage in the first round as the hot Clippers and Rockets shot past them. Portland is now the five seed with Golden State just 1.5 games back.…

    Hornets Trail Blazers Basketball

    Last Season: The Blazers spent the first half of the season threatening for a playoff spot, but one of the worst benches in NBA history ultimately sunk the team’s chances. Damian Lillard‘s scoring prowess made him the fourth unanimous Rookie of the Year winner in NBA history, and it simulatenously provided hope that Portland’s current core…

  5. Blazers’ Nicolas Batum suffers concussion, out for a bit

    Oct 9, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Nicolas Batum, Willie Green

    The basketball gods continue to torment Portland, for reasons unknown. Reports surfaced Tuesday afternoon that Portland’s Nicolas Batum had left practice after a hard fall — he had gone up for a dunk that was contested by Will Barton and ended up hitting the deck. However, it can be hard to read too much into…

  6. LaMarcus Aldridge admits to extreme frustration, but not trade request

    Aug 31, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    LaMarcus Alrdridge earned a second consecutive All-Star appearance last year, but it essentially went to waste as his Portland Trail Blazers finished 33-49 in spite of their big man’s best efforts. That led to multiple reports saying Aldridge was looking to be moved this summer, but the player himself denied everything once the original report…

  9. DeMare Carroll shows off the rim he broke on dunk at fitness center

    Apr 9, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    CARROLL_DeMARRE

    I was a little ticked when the basketball court at my gym was down for 10 days or so because somebody broke the rim out of the backboard with a dunk. That said, I also wanted to shake that guy’s hand. At one gym in Utah, members can be ticked at/shake the hand of DeMarre…

  10. NBA Playoff preview: San Antonio Spurs vs. Utah Jazz

    Apr 27, 2012, 5:27 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, DeJuan Blair, Gregg Popovich

    SEASON RECORDS
 San Antonio 50-16 (1 seed) Utah: 36-30 (8 seed) SEASON SERIES
 San Antonio won the season series 3-1 and Utah’s only win was against the Spurs on a night the Big 3 rested. Not exactly an encouraging sign for the Jazz. KEY INJURIES San Antonio: The Spurs are (gulp) healthy going into the playoffs.…

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

  14. 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…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are there moral victories for the Knicks?

    Feb 3, 2012, 6:32 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Rose drives to the basket past New York Knicks ' Jeffries during their NBA game in New York

    What you missed while adopting your girlfriend as your daughter….. Bulls 105, Knicks 102: Are there moral victories for the Knicks? They played hard on offense, they attacked the rim, moved the ball at key points and looked pretty good against one of the best defensive teams in the league. But this is the Knicks,…

  16. Video: Jeremy Evans throws down a two-handed windmill dunk whilst jumping over Earl Watson

    Jan 31, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Jeremy Evans, Gerald Wallace

    If you click “play” on this video, you will see Utah Jazz sophomore throwing down a pretty nice windmill dunk over teammate Earl Watson. It’s a solid throwdown, but probably won’t be enough to get Evans, who is currently averaging 2.4 points in 6.8 minutes per game this season, an invitation to the dunk contest…

    In this era where a majority of the NBA’s star players seem to be friendly with one another in some capacity off the court, a regular season basketball game that achieves a certain level of chippiness is a welcome surprise. So with that in mind, we bring you these selected highlights from Utah’s close loss…

  20. NBA Season Preview: The Indiana Pacers

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:24 PM EDT

    Last season: The Pacers went 32-50, which puts them a step above the downright tragedy of the Nets, Timberwolves, and even the Wizards, but still among some pretty miserable company. Head Coach: Jim O’Brien will again have the Pacers running (they were the second fastest team in the NBA last season), running, running. This time,…

  21. Earl Watson agrees to a deal with the Utah Jazz

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Earl Watson has game made for the background. He’s not a bad player. Sub-average, really, but not bad. He’s spent most of his career as a reserve, and has typically managed to hold down the fort while his team’s regular point man sips on Gatorade. When Watson is asked to do more than tread water…

  22. Still some big name free agents available, if you think they would help

    Sep 5, 2010, 11:13 AM EDT

    We’re in the dregs of the NBA signing season, when guys who can contribute like Luther Head end up with make-good deals in Sacramento, where they will battle the undrafted for a roster spot. But look at the names still unsigned and available (compiled by Ira Winderman at the South Florida Sun Sentinel): Allen Iverson,…

  23. Earl Watson attacked by wife. But it's all good now.

    Aug 12, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    I’ve made some women angry in my time (it’s a skill, like anything else), but never quite this mad. Earl Watson’s wife really went off on him, according to his divorce papers obtained by TMZ. The pair has since reconciled and he will not divorce his wife, Jennifer Freeman, actress best know from “My Wife…
