  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Vintage Tim Duncan alert

    Apr 13, 2012, 10:02 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol

    What you missed while debating if you would give up sex for internet access… Bulls 96, Heat 86 (OT): Neither team looked like a playoff title contender, but this win moves the Bulls four games up on the Heat and pretty much cements them in as the top seed in the East. Our own Brett…

    Kevin Durant

    What you missed while hiring a nude maid service…. Knicks 111, Bucks 107: In a must-win game for both teams, the Knicks got the stops and gutted out a win that likely sends them to the playoffs. Clippers 100, Thunder 98: On the ESPN studio show, injured Clippers guard Chauncey Billups said the key to…

  3. Kevin Love spends night in hospital following concussion

    Apr 12, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love spent the night in a Denver area hospital as a precaution following him leaving Wednesday night’s game in the first quarter with a mild concussion and neck strain. While the team called it “mild” and said it was not serious, Love must now go through the league’s concussion protocol and be cleared by…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Memphis, for they are a force

    Apr 10, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Caron Butler, Marc Gasol

    What you missed while marveling at Japanese beer technology. Grizzlies 94, Clippers 85: Why does everyone fear the Grizzlies right now? Because they have a huge front line with skill. Because they have very good wing players. Because they have depth. Because they have won 8 of 10 and that includes victories over the Lakers,…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Playoff impacts everywhere you look

    Apr 5, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett

    What you missed while getting drunk on peanut butter and jelly flavored vodka…. Heat 98, Thunder 93: Don’t read too much into “statements” before the playoffs start, but the Heat made one in one of our games of the night. Lakers 113, Clippers 108: The Clippers had the big highlights, but the Lakers will take…

  6. As expected, Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger to declare for draft

    Apr 4, 2012, 12:53 PM EDT

    Ohio State Buckeyes forward Jared Sullinger sits on the court after the Buckeyes were defeated by the Kansas Jayhawks in the men's NCAA Final Four semi-final college basketball game in New Orleans

    No real surprise here — it was almost a surprise he went back for his sophomore year — but Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger is declaring for the NBA draft, reports ESPN. The team will make a formal announcement Wednesday afternoon. Sullinger is a lock top-10, maybe top 5 pick in the draft (DraftExpress currently has…

  8. David Stern still wants to add a year to the age limit

    Apr 3, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    From the AP: The league wasn’t able to change its draft eligibility rules during collective bargaining last year. The rules require an American player to be 19 years old and a year out of high school. The players’ association would only agree to form a committee to discuss changes, and it is unlikely to consent…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Apr 2, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook celebrates with small forward Kevin Durant during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Oklahoma City

    There can’t be any question about the Thunder in the top spot after the last 8 days, but there are questions about the Heat and the Bulls in the East. And the Celtics and Spurs as spoilers. 1. Thunder (40-12, last week ranked number 2). They beat the Heat, Bulls and Lakers in the last…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Rockets playoff hopes take punch to gut

    Apr 2, 2012, 2:39 AM EDT

    Courtney Lee, Paul George

    What you missed while reading the book “Cooking with Poo”…. Thunder 92, Bulls 78: The Oklahoma City Thunder have rolled over everybody lately (that’s going to be good for them in the power rankings Monday) and their athleticism overwhelmed the Chicago in our game of the day. Celtics 91, Heat 72: Does Boston have one…

  12. Kobe has day only Kobe could have, caps it with game winner

    Mar 31, 2012, 8:11 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Saturday was vintage Kobe… or at least vintage 2012 Kobe. He looked tired — as he has a lot lately, which is why we have all watched his shooting percentages drop — and started the game 0-for-15 shooting with zero points through three quarters. Yes, you read that right. Zero points on 15 missed shots.…

  13. Timberwolves owner says Kevin Love no Kevin Garnett. Yet.

    Mar 30, 2012, 1:12 PM EDT

    Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves competes in the three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Kevin Love is putting up video game numbers in March — averaging 31.2 points per game and having double-doubles in nine straight games. It’s led to a lot of hype — too much hype. Like saying this puts Love in the MVP discussion. He’s had an All-Star season, but a guy on a below .500…

  14. In case you missed it, Kevin Love is in Beast Mode

    Mar 29, 2012, 10:49 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Last night against the Bobcats, Kevin Love dropped 40 points and grabbed 19 rebounds. A good night by anyone’s standards, but for Love that was just his third highest total this month. Those kinds of numbers are almost becoming routine — he’s had nine straight double-doubles and had more than 20 points in 14 of…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Kevin Love

    Mar 29, 2012, 9:17 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Eduardo Najera

    What you missed while tweeting pictures of your food rather than eating it… Knicks 108, Magic 86: It was pretty much a perfect storm for the Knicks, and they need more like it. We broke it all down here. Minnesota 88, Bobcats 83: Kevin Love is in full on NBA2K12 beast mode — he had…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Drama with the Lakers? Shocking.

    Mar 28, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while thinking you don’t hate your job as much as this guy… Lakers 104, Warriors 101: What’s a Laker win without more drama? During the game the drama was the Lakers not pulling away against an undersized Golden State side, then the Warriors fighting back from a double digits deficit in the…

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  19. How Kevin Durant almost played for North Carolina

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    kevin durant texas

    Kevin Durant in Carolina blue rather than Texas burnt orange? I have trouble picturing it, but it almost happened, apparently. The New York Post’s Peter Vecsey had a story Sunday primarily about how Kevin Love and Kevin Durant are good friends going way back to seventh grade. How Durant has been over to Love’s family…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  21. Video: Kevin Durant, Kevin Love put on show in OKC

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:44 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant

    In case you missed one of the most entertaining games of the year last night, we bring you some highlights from the Minnesota Timberwolves at Oklahoma City Thunder. Like above, when at the end of regulation Kevin Durant and Kevin Love traded threes. Below, watch Durant send the game into double overtime, where the Thunder…

  22. Rick Adelman rips Darko’s motivation, conditioning

    Mar 22, 2012, 12:20 PM EDT

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    With the emergence of Nikola Pekovic to play center along side Kevin Love, Adelman has not had to suffer Darko Milicic. Even when Pekovic was sent home from a road trip to rest sore ankles, Milicic could not get off the bench this week. When asked about using Milicic, Adelman ripped the former No. 2…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Five in a row for the Knicks

    Mar 22, 2012, 9:03 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jrue Holiday

    What you missed while being thankful a rogue boulder didn’t destroy your home and car… Knicks 82, Sixers 79: This was the ugliest win for the Knicks on their five-game winning streak, but it may also be the best. Not the best because it moves them within three games of the struggling Sixers in the…

  24. Could ‘Melo’s role with D’Antoni cost him a spot on Team USA?

    Mar 20, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd, Olympics

    Mike Krzyzewski and the coaches of Team USA have some very tough decisions ahead of them as they trim the list of 20 candidates down to 12 who get to suit up in London this summer for the Olympics. Look at the power forward spot. You only really need three and the guys on that…
