Can the Pacers regain their early-season swagger now that the playoffs are here?
Feb 28, 2014, 1:50 PM EDT
After Al Horford went down for the season, Gustavo Ayon was one of the guys who soaked up those minutes and has played decent ball in that role. Make that had played — Ayon is done for the season after right shoulder surgery, the team announced Friday. In his last 10 games Ayon averaged 21…

Antawn Jamison hasn’t filled the stretch-four role the Clippers hoped he would this season. He’s played in only one of the Clippers last 17 games (a 45-point win over the 76ers). Though Jamison has just a minimum contract, that’s still more money than the Clippers need to spend on someone with no upside and no…

Since Al Horford went down for the season the Hawks have leaned pretty heavily on rookie Pero Antic — and he’s been solid. In the last three games he’s averaged better than 12 points and 7 rebounds playing at least 23 minutes a night, and on the season he is shooting 36.7 percent from three.…

The Atlanta Hawks are expecting a fair amount out of Mexico native Gustavo Ayon this season. Al Horford, Elton Brand and Paul Millsap are the names you know along their reconstructed front line, but Ayon is going to have a nice sized role with that group. At FIBA Americas this summer he played like a guy…

The Bucks have had one of the NBA’s busiest offseasons. They traded Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Ish Smith, waived Drew Gooden and Gustavo Ayon, let Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Mike Dunleavy Jr. walk in free agency and signed-and-traded Brandon Jennings and J.J. Redick. That’s most of the roster turned over, yet it’s…

Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…
Sep 27, 2013, 9:19 AM EDT
Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

Al Horford admits it. Like a lot of other Hawks fans this summer he wondered what GM Danny Ferry was thinking. Then it all came together. Now Al Horford looks around at the guys working out before training camp starts with the Hawks next week and he thinks he sees the plan. At least he…

It’s been a summer of uncertainty for Gustavo Ayon, who had his option picked up by the Bucks in June, only to see the team waive him a month later. The Hawks claimed Ayon off waivers shortly thereafter, and if his performance for Mexico in the FIBA Americas tournament ends up being any indication, Atlanta…
