  1. Video: Watch Vince Carter airball a finger roll

    Apr 11, 2012, 9:59 AM EDT

    Vince Carter

    I mean, Vince Carter is no Nick Young when it comes to blown layups, but this is pretty impressive. There is nobody around him to challenge this, he just misses it. Vince Carter had some good plays as well Tuesday night, but even he was laughing at this one.

  2. NBA Summer League returning to Las Vegas

    Apr 10, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    After a lockout-induced one-year hiatus, the NBA’s Summer League will return to Las Vegas this July 13-22 at the Thomas & Mack Center and the COX Pavilion on the campus of UNLV. From the official release: “Launched in 2004 as the Las Vegas Summer League, the inaugural event featured six NBA teams (Boston Celtics, Cleveland…

  3. 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,…

  4. Clippers’ Mo Williams out vs. Grizzlies

    Apr 9, 2012, 7:02 PM EDT

    Mo Williams, Ian Mahinm

    From the Los Angeles Clippers’ Madelyn Burke: Mo Williams (toe) will not play tonight vs Grizzlies Williams has averaged 13.6 points and 3.1 assists per game for the Clippers this season, but has missed the last 9 games for the team. The Clippers were on a 3-game losing streak before Williams got injured, and have…

  5. Mavericks sound like team ready to move on from Odom

    Apr 9, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Just like after the Mavericks last game, coach Rick Carlisle was not going to talk about Lamar Odom on Monday. All he said is they wouldn’t have trouble filling his playing time, which was all of 4 minutes last game and 34 over the last four. So reporters turned to ask veteran Jason Terry if…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Who forgot to tell Spurs they are old?

    Apr 9, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal

    Can you picture a San Antonio vs. Miami finals? It’s not that hard, if you try. 1. Spurs (40-14, last week ranked number 2). Eleven wins in a row and they are percentage points ahead of the Thunder (and one ahead of them in the loss column). Are they title contenders? They have four rings…

  7. Monday And-1 links: Lowry returns, Pietrus getting closer

  8. Hornets’ Jarrett Jack out rest of season with foot injury

    Apr 9, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    This isn’t the Hornets tanking… but it doesn’t hurt. Point guard Jarrett Jack — the one bright spot in a pretty dismal Hornets year on the court — is out for the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot, the team announced (hat tip to Marc Spears of Yahoo). It’s…

  9. Lamar Odom, Mavericks reach deal for him to leave team

    Apr 9, 2012, 10:09 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom will not suit up for the Dallas Mavericks again, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. After a bumpy season, Odom and the Mavericks have reached a deal where they can go their separate ways and Dallas will list him as inactive for the rest of the season. “The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed…

  10. Blake Griffin’s response to DeMarcus Cousins calling him an actor: “You have to consider the source.”

    Apr 8, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    griffin-cousins

    There’s a weird sort of rivalry brewing between the Kings and the Clippers, that, on the surface, doesn’t seem to make much sense. While L.A. has two current All-Stars and is likely to be a top-four seed when the playoffs begin in a few short weeks, Sacramento is a perennial lottery team with a couple…

  11. Quote of the Day: CP3 responds to Cousins calling Griffin an “actor”

    Apr 7, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Demarcus Cousins

    Via ESPN.com’ s Justin Verrier: CP on DMC comments: “We won. He lost. We competing for the playoffs. He’s not. That happens in this league.” Clippers point guard Chris Paul, responding to Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins‘ statement that Blake Griffin is an “actor” who gets “babied by the league.” The Kings and Clippers will face each…

  12. Video: Montage of Blake Griffin’s poster dunks

    Apr 6, 2012, 11:15 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye

    Want to play a fun game: How many of these are offensive fouls? That said, there is no doubt that Blake Griffin is one of the great physical forces in the game today. He attacks like no other. And for those of you saying “yea, but all he can do is dunk” I have two…

  13. Cousins fined $25,000 for saying officials love Blake Griffin

    Apr 6, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Favors

    Everyone, including DeMarcus Cousins, should have known this was coming. Cousins criticized the officials, saying they and the league plays favorites with Griffin, and the league doesn’t like it when players suggest the league plays favorites. Of course we all know that doesn’t happen (*cough*). Cousins was fined $25,000 by the league for his comments…

  14. Blake Griffin the actor: playing a chicken on Sesame Street

    Apr 6, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Someday James Lipton is going to pull out one of his little blue cards to ask Blake Griffin about this performance, where his motivation really came from. DeMarcus Cousins thinks he knows — he thinks Griffin is an actor and plays a little too much chicken on the court, too. I like that Griffin and…

  16. Cousins accuses Blake Griffin of being “actor,” faking fouls

    Apr 6, 2012, 9:56 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    DeMarcus Cousins and Blake Griffin were banging on each other pretty hard Thursday night in what Kings coach Keith Smart called a great football game. But Cousins was the one who ended up in foul trouble, playing just 18 minutes due to it (while Griffin had a double double and even hit key jumpers late).…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls win another without Rose

    Apr 6, 2012, 8:57 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng

    What you missed while watching your kid freak out about the Easter Bunny… Knicks 96, Magic 80: The Knicks are feeling confident and finding their stride as the Magic are coming apart at the seams. The other key — Tyson Chandler is one of the few centers who can match up with Dwight Howard. It…

  18. Here we go again: Udonis Haslem calls Thunder’s Perkins “fake tough guy”

    Apr 5, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our own Ira Winderman has the report: While both James and Haslem downplayed Westbrook’s foul as one of exuberance in the heat of the moment, Haslem pointedly took umbrage to Perkins’ shove against Wade. Recall, earlier this season Perkins derided James for drawing attention to Blake Griffin‘s highlight-of-the-season dunk on Perkins. Perkins also has a push-come-to-shove…

  19. Rockets GM Daryl Morey with a great discussion of clutch

    Apr 5, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    Daryl Morey

    One of the great debates in the NBA statistical community is the issue of clutch play. The conventional wisdom is that Kobe Bryant is awesome in the clutch — did you see the dagger jumper he hit over Randy Foye Wednesday — but the statistics say he misses far more than he makes in that…

  21. Video: Thrilling end of Suns win… Nash will rip your heart out

    Apr 5, 2012, 11:39 AM EDT

    Steve Nash, Earl Watson

    While you were watching the Heat and the Thunder and the abuse of Pau Gasol by Blake Griffin, Utah and Phoenix were putting on a show. Al Jefferson and Steve Nash were trading buckets at the end, but when it came down to the final shot Nash got the loose ball, split two defenders and…

  22. 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…

  23. Clippers get the highlights, Lakers take win and likely division

    Apr 5, 2012, 2:56 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s simplistic, but not inaccurate, to see Wednesday night’s Lakers win over the Clippers like Andrew Bynum saw it. He was asked about Blake Griffin’s dunk on Pau Gasol (you can decide which one). “He can have the highlight, we’ll take the W,” Bynum said. But that W — a 113-108 win for the Lakers…

  24. Video: Blake Griffin just destroys Pau Gasol… twice

    Apr 5, 2012, 12:24 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Pau Gasol

    RIP Pau Gasol. Blake Griffin is a tough cover for anybody in the league, but particularly Gasol — Griffin plays an aggressive, attacking game using his great strength and athleticism. Gasol is smarter, more fundamental than you. (And spare me the Gasol is soft stuff, or did you not watch him defend Dwight Howard in…

  25. JaVale McGee “shocked” Wizards traded him. He was alone.

    Apr 4, 2012, 2:57 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, JaVale McGee

    The fact JaVale McGee did not know he was about to be traded pretty much sums up JaVale McGee. McGee spoke with Hoopsworld about the trade that sent him from Washington to Denver and said — while everybody else on the planet knew he was being shopped — he was surprised by the move. “I…
