    Apr 10, 2013, 12:50 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    This may be the most ridiculous ending to a game this season. Not what the Rockets did — with seven seconds left in a 98-98 game they went to the old “isolate your best player out high” and James Harden dribbled it out then pulled up for a three. Which was short and bounced high.…

    Vinny Del Negro

    Most who saw the Clippers lose a heart-breaker in San Antonio on Friday would have expected a lackluster effort in Houston on Saturday. Vinny Del Negro did not expect it, and was anything but pleased with his team afterward. L.A. not only lost to a Rockets team playing without James Harden, who sat out with…

    San Antonio Spurs v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets play at the fastest pace in the NBA 98.8 possessions per game (via Hoopdata). And while it’s not yet a mathematical lock, we can say the Rockets are going to the playoffs — they are the seven seed in the West, three full games up on the eight seed Lakers and 3.5…

    Mar 25, 2013, 1:47 AM EDT

    Spurs Rockets Basketball

    James Harden is a superstar. And it’s not just the beard. When he was traded from being the Thunder’s super-sub there was no question he was good, but there was a question about whether he could be a No. 1, franchise cornerstone guy. Yes, yes he is. Ask the Spurs. He had 18 of his…

    Now that the Lakers making the playoffs seems much more like an eventuality than a faint possibility, it’s only natural that the pundits will begin lining up to assess the team’s chances once the postseason begins. Jerry West was first in line apparently, and said that he believes the Lakers would be a dangerous playoff…

    Kings Heat Basketball

    It’s Miami and then everyone else right now — but notice the next six teams in our weekly power rankings are from the West. That’s because the play of the second tier teams in the East has fallen off (Indiana, New York, Brooklyn) 1. Heat (51-14, last week ranked No. 1). What kind of concerns…

  14. Did Warriors, Wizards turn down James Harden deals?

    Mar 15, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    James Harden

    Whether you choose to believe this or not really comes down to how much you believe in ESPN’s Bill Simmons. But NBA trades do not work where a potential available player is only discussed with one team. If a GM is shopping — or even just testing the market — for a specific player then…

    Mar 8, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Not everyone believes the Oklahoma City Thunder have a real chance to win an NBA title. And if you watched the Miami Heat take them apart on Valentines Day, it’s easy to say that the gap between the Heat and Thunder is pretty much still where we left it last June. Which is pretty wide.…

    Aaron Brooks, Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley

    Aaron Brooks was just not part of the future in Sacramento — Isaiah Thomas and Tyreke Evans are your ball handlers there, Brooks was just not fitting in the mix.

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The narrative of the NBA Trade Deadline 2013 is going to be that it was a dud. Fans seemed to think the Lakers were going to trade Dwight Howard. Or the Celtics were going to blow it up and trade Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The fans expected blockbusters and some of the national media…
