When Kevin Durant is putting on the kind of show that will win him the MVP award, as he was doing Tuesday night, the Thunder are very hard to beat. Dallas did just that though. They did it behind a vintage night from Dirk Nowitzki (well, except he continued to struggle from three going 2-of-8),…

Dirk Nowitzki may have called bank, but he didn’t call that. Dirk: "I think it every part of the rim, hit the glass, it hit Jerry West on the left. It wasn’t the greatest of shots."— Bryan Gutierrez (@BallinWithBryan) February 25, 2014 That’s the touch the great shooters get. Dallas got one last shot to…

The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…

by Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – When Carmelo Anthony scored a jaw-dropping 62 points in a win over the Bobcats on Friday, he didn’t just set a Knicks franchise record. He took something that belonged to Kobe Bryant. The Madison Square Garden arena record, since the building opened its fourth incarnation in 1968, was set…

Spain has the second best national basketball team in the world. Anchored in the paint by brothers Marc Gasol and Pau Gasol, plus with a host of good guards such as Jose Calderon and Ricky Rubio, they have won two Olympic silver medals in a row, able to beat out every nation on earth save…

LOS ANGELES — If the ball hadn’t been orange with David Stern’s signature on it rather than red, white and blue I would have sworn this was an old ABA game. It was fast paced with all kinds of offense, questionable defense, a ton of threes, some chippy play, and huge runs — the Los…

This is almost funnier than “Anchorman 2.” The latest from the Mavericks’ marketing department has Dirk Nowitzki, Shawn Marion, Samuel Dalembert and even Jose Calderon doing a little take on Anchorman. Complete with mustaches and bad blazers. As noted by Kelly Dwyer at Ball Don’t Lie, this video of the Dallas “starting five” features six…

Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. This is not a recording. The center slept too long and was late to a Mavericks workout, which caused Dallas to suspend him for its 92-80 loss to the New York Knicks on Sunday, according…

You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

Kyle Korver has always been known as one of the league’s more consistent three-point shooters throughout his NBA career. Now in his 12th season, he seems to be getting better with age. Korver is shooting 52.9 percent from three-point distance so far this season, after finishing at 45.7 percent last year, which was good enough…

Oh Dwight, you should know better. Dwight Howard was frustrated by late in the fourth quarter Wednesday night. His team had squandered most of the 18 point third quarter lead it had (the Rockets would eventually blow all of it and lose), Dirk Nowitzki was pretty much scoring at will, and some Mavericks fans had…
