Brian Windhorst: Kyrie Irving doesn’t want to be in Cleveland, that should impact contract extension talks
Apr 4, 2014, 6:52 PM EDT
Kyrie Irving is unhappy in Cleveland. That’s not new news. But if he wants an opt out in his max extension this summer then how should Cleveland handle it?
Apr 4, 2014, 12:05 PM EDT
Will he get it?

The Wizards are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008, the Pacers scored more than 100 points. Those are things worth celebrating.

Brandon Jennings has been caught twice flopping this year, and that earns him a small fine.

There is no timetable, but it looks like the Rockets will have
Mar 31, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT
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.…

Could he help the Timberwolves keep Kevin Love?
Mar 30, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT
Blake Griffin was out for the Clippers just six minutes into the game (back spasms have him day-to-day), and that set them on their heels — the Rockets led by 15 at one point in the early in the second quarter. Then Chris Paul took over. The best point guard in the game scored 30 points…

Blake Griffin left Saturday’s game with back spasms, which isn’t at all a good sign for his team’s postseason chances.
Patrick Beverley says torn meniscus may not require surgery, timetable could be 10 days to four weeks
Mar 29, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT
Patrick Beverley’s torn meniscus injury may not be as serious as initially feared.
Mar 29, 2014, 1:37 PM EDT
At this time of year playoff teams are cautious with injuries — as much as you might need a player for key games now, you need him more for playoff games. Which accounts for these two bigs of news: Dwight Howard will be out for the Rockets for at least 10 days to rest a…

The Rockets’ starting point guard going to get a second opinion, but if he is out for the playoffs that is not good news for a team on the cusp of contention. It means more Jeremy Lin, but he’s not the defender Beverley is.

One sounds more serious than the other.

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…

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

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…

The Sixth Man of the Year award likely will come down to a two-man race.
Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EDT
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?
Mar 24, 2014, 10:18 AM EDT
I can’t see how these next two years could go wrong for the Lakers.
Mar 21, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT
Then he won’t mind this post.
Mar 21, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT
That is the Omer Asik we saw so much of last season — he remains one of the best defensive centers in the game. It’s why despite his contract (and the fact Houston can use him) I think some team trades for Asik this summer. Luc Richard Mbah A Moute got the pass and was…

Lakers president and co-owner Jeanie Buss says she still doesn’t understand why Dwight Howard left the Lakers in free agency. Really? Because everyone else does.
