    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    When Chris Paul made the game-winning shot Monday night to beat the Grizzlies 93-91, a lot of people pointed out on twitter that Paul got room to get that shot off by pushing off on Tony Allen to create space. They are right. Allen and Paul were physical on that play but CP3 was smart…

    Los Angeles Clippers shooting guard Crawford goes to the basket against the Memphis Grizzlies during Game 2 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles, California

    There is a reason Jamal Crawford was in the running for Sixth Man of the Year — the guy can flat out score the basketball. And be impressive doing it. In the second quarter Monday night he rattled off 10 straight points, with a variety of amazing moves and shots. And it’s not like he’s…

    Los Angeles Clippers Chris Paul scores the game-winning basket against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    LOS ANGELES — The Grizzlies may have given their best shot to the Clippers in Monday’s Game 2, correcting virtually all of the mistakes they made in the first game of the series. Thanks to the buzzer-beating heroics of Chris Paul, however, everything Memphis had wasn’t good enough. L.A. pulled out the thrilling 93-91 victory…

    BKN--GRIZZLIES-CLIPPERS

    Chris Paul is a superstar. That right there is why you have superstars on your team. Paul got the ball out high with :13 seconds left in a tie game , had a very good and physical defender on him in Tony Allen, drove and was physical right back, got away with a pushoff but…

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    The Knicks have the NBA’s scoring champion at forward in Carmelo Anthony. Now they have the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year, too. As we told you would happen earlier in the day, the New York’s J.R. Smith has been named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year. His strong end of the season —…

  6. Grizzlies need to control the boards, increase the pace to bounce back in Game 2 against Clippers

    Apr 22, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Clippers - Game One

    LOS ANGELES — After the Clippers took Game 1 from the Grizzlies by dominating the glass, that was the area that Memphis seemed most focused on improving for the next game of the series and beyond. Being on the wrong end of a 47-23 rebounding margin will do that. But it wasn’t the big men…

  7. Chris Paul sounds like he’ll be a Clipper next year, but Bledsoe will not

    Apr 22, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    Nobody expects Chris Paul to leave the Clippers. It will become a sports talk radio thing in some cities as we move closer to July 1 when he becomes a free agent, but everybody knows he’s going to re-sign with the Clippers. He may ask for changes around the organization to go with his new…

    New York Knicks' Smith celebrates scoring past Washington Wizards during their NBA basketball game in Manhattan

    While there were some other deserving candidates out the there — we’re looking at you, Jarrett Jack — the race for NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year was essentially a two man race. One that the Knicks J.R. Smith has apparently won. It will not be official until later on Monday afternoon but multiple reports…

    The Thunder led 13-2 before the Rockets tied the game at 38, but Oklahoma City responded with a 14-1 run late in the first half. Houston hung around the fringe of striking distance before the Thunder made another 13-2 run midway through the second half. The Rockets – and the Western Conference – are trying…

  10. Mavericks want to make Dirk Nowitzki their second-best player

    Apr 21, 2013, 11:32 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Ryan Anderson

    For the first time since the 1999-00 season, when Michael Finley did it, Dirk Nowitzki didn’t lead the Mavericks in win shares. As Nowitzki missed a large of the 2012-13 season due to injury, Vince Carter, Darren Collison and Shawn Marion passed him in the all-in-one stat. If the Mavericks have their way, Nowitzki won’t…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Clippers - Game One

    LOS ANGELES — The Grizzlies finished the regular season second in the league in rebounding differential, but you wouldn’t know it sorting through the wreckage of their 112-91 loss to the Clippers to open the playoffs on Saturday. It’s normally Memphis who bullies opponents on the glass and gets plenty of second chance opportunities, but…

  13. Seven players whose teams need them to step up big in the postseason

    Apr 20, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Jeff Green Since his 43-point game in mid-March (excluding Boston’s season finale, when regular players rested), Green has averaged 20.0, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. By any eye test, he’s looked excellent. But in that span, the Celtics have been outscored by 3.6 points per 100 possession with him on the court and…

    Apr 19, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Brandon Knight

    Among the things this NBA regular season gave us, there were some just ridonkulous dunks. (And yes, that’s a word. They used it on “How I Met Your Mother” and everything.) Just flat out crazy stuff. So here you go. On the day before the playoffs start let’s take a little trip down memory lane…

    Heat's Bosh and Bulls' Boozer await a rebound from a Miami free throw in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    There are some first round series in the NBA playoffs, like the one between the Heat and the Bucks, for example, that are nothing more than foregone conclusions. But there are others where the lower seed has a more than legitimate shot at beating a higher-seeded team winning and advancing, at least in theory. In…

  18. Seven NBA playoff story lines to watch

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    After weeks of trying to predict seedings and matchups while watching teams rest their perfectly healthy superstars, the playoffs are finally upon us. In no particular order, here are the story lines we’ll be watching when the postseason tournament opens on Saturday. How much damage can the Lakers do without Kobe Bryant? L.A. opened the…

  19. How hot is Vinny Del Negro’s seat? Well, if they lose to Memphis, very.

    Apr 18, 2013, 9:50 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    There have been no shortage of people around the Clippers wondering if Vinny Del Negro really had the coaching chops to lead this team to new heights. And so far he has — they reached the second round of the playoffs last season for just the second time since coming to Los Angeles, then this…

  20. Marcin Gortat says lack of character in younger players a big problem for the Suns

    Apr 18, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    PHOENIX — Marcin Gortat was among the veteran Suns players who weren’t at all happy with the way this season went in Phoenix. Along with Goran Dragic and Jared Dudley, Gortat is a holdover from better times the team experienced while playing with the likes of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, two of the game’s…

  21. Who can knock off Miami? NBA playoff power rankings

    Apr 18, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    If you want to hold the Larry O’Brien trophy — the one that goes to the NBA champions each June — you’re going to have to pry it out of Miami’s cold, dead hands. Good luck. They are the defending champs. They had the best regular season record in the NBA despite coasting to start…

  22. Three Stars of the Night whose seasons are over

    Apr 18, 2013, 2:23 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While everybody was watching the overtime drama to see how the bottom half of the Western Conference would play out, there were a lot of questions in the middle of the conference as well: Could Denver hold on to the three seed? Could the Clippers hold off the Grizzlies and have home court in the…

  24. DeAndre Jordan throws down alley-oop Lillard has no chance of stopping (VIDEO)

    Apr 17, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There are better front lines in the NBA (hello Memphis!) but there is no front line that runs the court better than the Los Angeles Clippers. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan spring up and down the court, and that means occasionally in transition they get matched up on a guy who has no chance physically…

    Apr 17, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups is back. After missing 11 of the  last 12 games with a groin injury, Billups was back on the floor trying to get some rhythm back before the playoffs. It sure looked like he had is mojo back on this play, where he makes the nifty between-the-legs pass to Blake Griffin. And Griffin…
