  1. Smooth Kevin Durant drops 31 on Jazz (VIDEO)

    Mar 30, 2014, 9:31 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Richard Jefferson

    That makes 38 games in a row that Kevin Durant has scored at least 25 points — that streak and his consistency this season is the reason he will take home the MVP. He scored 31 Sunday and made it look easy going 9-of-13 from the field against the Utah Jazz as the Thunder cruised…

  2. Back spasms force Blake Griffin to leave after playing just six minutes against Rockets

    Blake Griffin left Saturday’s game with back spasms, which isn’t at all a good sign for his team’s postseason chances.

  3. Watch Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki trade buckets

    Mar 26, 2014, 9:19 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki , Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitizki put on a real show Tuesday night, one that couldn’t be contained in regulation. Durant finished with 43 points (on 27 shots) as he was getting to the basket and knocking down threes, generally looking like the best scorer in the game. Nowitzki finished with 32 points (on 23 shots) and…

  4. Tuesday NBA grades: Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant in a duel

    Mar 26, 2014, 2:53 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while breaking down the science of the three point shot… Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks. It wasn’t perfect — he had 6 turnovers and shot 2-of-8 from three. But when they needed him vintage Dirk Nowitzki showed up for Dallas scoring 7 of his team-high 32…

  5. Too much Dirk Nowitzki in overtime lifts Mavericks over Thunder

    Mar 26, 2014, 12:45 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks

    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),…

  6. After long season with Suns Goran Dragic may not play in World Cup for Slovenia

    Mar 25, 2014, 11:45 AM EDT

    Goran Dragic

    Goran Dragic is playing nearly 35 minutes a night for the Suns and would like to rest this summer, but that means letting down his national team.

  7. Russell Westbrook’s minute limit might continue into playoffs

    Mar 24, 2014, 10:03 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Spencer Hawes

    The Thunder are playing Russell Westbrook less than ever. They’re even sitting him in some back-to-backs. It’s all designed to maximize his availability for the playoffs. Oklahoma City is a legitimate championship contender. There’s no sense risking Westbrook’s health until it matters most. But given how serious every hit to the knee Westbrook absorbs seems,…

  8. Greg Oden to start for Heat Monday against former team Trail Blazers

    Mar 24, 2014, 2:22 PM EDT

    oden heat

    Greg Oden is playing it down, but he will start against the team that drafted him No. 1 all those years ago. It will be emotional.

  9. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker

    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?

  10. Kobe Bryant talks with Jim Buss, reiterates ‘selfish’ desire for Lakers to contend next two seasons

    Mar 24, 2014, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    I can’t see how these next two years could go wrong for the Lakers.

  13. Anthony Davis talks about adjustment from NCAA to NBA

    Mar 21, 2014, 2:41 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Portland Trail Blazers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames on the first day… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. Credit the Milwaukee Bucks, they would not roll over, they fought and made Golden State work for it. Stephen Curry was the guy that was not going to…

  15. Portland Trail Blazers first tweet ever is just depressing

    Mar 20, 2014, 4:47 PM EDT

    Image (1) twitter-fail-whale-thumb-250x187-20431.png for post 4192

    Ugh. Their first tweet war just before the 2007 NBA Draft.

  17. Monday NBA grades: Faried, Hickson help Nuggets snap Clippers’ win streak

    Mar 18, 2014, 2:28 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets versus the Los Angeles Clippers

    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…

  18. Sunday NBA grades: Golden State’s Curry, Thompson put on a show

    Mar 17, 2014, 2:57 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the King of the Hill/True Detective mashup… Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors. Early in the third quarter Houston took an 18 point lead over Golden State and seemed to be in complete control. Then the shots from Warriors backcourt started to…

  19. Sixers coach Brett Brown says true rebuilding will take ‘three to five years’

    Mar 16, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brett Brown

    The Sixers are currently riding a 20-game losing streak, but for better or for worse, no one inside the Philadelphia organization is deluding themselves as to what’s going on there this season. Call it tanking, or as the NBA’s new commissioner Adam Silver prefers, rebuilding. But either way, there’s going to be a whole lot…

  20. Phil Jackson to Knicks could work. It probably won’t, but it could.

    Mar 15, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Jackson

    Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

  21. Kevin Durant: Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan are greatest of all time

    Mar 14, 2014, 11:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant,

    Michael Jordan is commonly accepted as the best NBA player of all time, though occasionally someone else believes a different player belongs No. 1. Consider Kevin Durant among those dissenters. At least partially Durant on Kobe Bryant, via Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball): “He’s…

  22. Interesting stat: Teams score better in crunch time when they don’t call timeout

    Mar 13, 2014, 4:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Coaches are micromanagers almost by nature. They want control, they want to set things up. So in crunch time, when their team needs a bucket, they almost inevitably call a timeout to set up a play. Of course, that also lets the defense make substitutions and set themselves up as well, but coaches want that…
