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

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.…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to explain how a python ate your family pet… J.J. Hickson/Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets. Let’s be clear — Denver snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 11-game win streak because the Clippers were tired and off. The back-to-back with the second game in Denver trap…

The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

Kenneth Faried showed why the Nuggets would have been crazy to trade him at the deadline, as he helped send the Heat to their fifth loss in six games.
Mar 6, 2014, 12:53 AM EDT
Kenneth Faried? Sure, Kenneth Faried. He’s not the first person to pop into your mind on the list of “guys who pass off the backboard to themselves.” But he did that early on Wednesday night. Most times you see this it leads to a dunk but Faried couldn’t pull that off, he got the tip…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while freaking out that their are flying snakes (and not just those aboard a plane with Samuel L. Jackson)…. LeBron James, Miami Heat. LeBron James does bleed — we have now all seen it — blowing up the alien conspiracy theories out there. He also…
Report: Knicks may be closer to dealing Iman Shumpert to Clippers, talking smaller trade with Nuggets
Feb 19, 2014, 8:06 PM EDT
A report earlier on Wednesday had the Knicks engaged in trade talks with the Clippers that would send Iman Shumpert and Raymond Felton to Los Angeles in exchange for Darren Collison and Reggie Bullock. Despite getting out from under Felton’s contract, which is essentially for two more seasons beyond this one considering his player option…

The NBA continues to look at better ways to punish flopping and get players to think twice — they are going to be more aggressive with technical foul calls for flops in the D-League starting Thursday — but for now the NBA will continue it’s slap-on-the-wrist fines. The latest one goes to P.J. Tucker of…

This was nuts. Thanks to Kenneth Faried going up to try to intercept the pass that was intended for Gerald Green, his flying toward the rim just made this an even more highlight-worthy alley-oop finish. Faried is as athletic as they come, and credit him for giving his all to try to defend the play.…

With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…
Feb 11, 2014, 5:23 PM EDT
The Knicks continue to shop Iman Shumpert around because: 1) They need to shake up the roster; 2) He may be their most tradable asset as he’s a young player on a rookie deal. The Nuggets continue to publicly deny that Kenneth Faried is available in a trade, but that’s not what everyone else around…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had a beer refrigerator as cool as Canada’s…. Philadelphia 76ers. They have lost two consecutive games by 40 or more points — 45 to the Clippers on Sunday, 43 to the Warriors on Monday. The only other team to lose back-to-back games…

The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…

The Denver Nuggets have struggled up front this season — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 44.9 points a game in the paint against them, 25th in the NBA. A big part of the reason for that is JaVale McGee has only played five games for them this…

No NBA head coach has been fired yet this season. Of course, “yet” is the key word there. Given the performances and the high expectations of a few teams in the Eastern Conference’s Central Division, that could be changing soon. Here’s a look at the tenuous positions of three coaches from that division, in order…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while realizing yes, the TSA employees are laughing at your body scans…. Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs. The Pelicans are without Jason Smith for the rest of the season and that means New Orleans usually had Greg Stiemsma or Alexi Ajinca on the court —…

That. Is. A. Dunk. The Raptors’ Terrence Ross got a steal and was off in transition. To his credit, Denver’s Kenneth Faried got back and went for the block. He ended up in Terrence Ross’ poster. One of the dunks of the year.
