We know for sure the Pacers play the Hawks in the first round, and we know the Rockets and Blazers will meet. After that all the matchups are still up in the air.

Spurs close out the season on top, but can they beat the Thunder in a playoff series? Can the Thunder get through the gauntlet in front of them to get a showdown with the Spurs?

Dirk Nowitzki is now 10th on the NBA’s all time scoring list, Steve Nash is third on the all time assists list. Not bad. Not bad at all.

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

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.

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.

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.

This was pretty much the only way Larry Sanders’ season was going to end. Poorly.

Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami. Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers…
