  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  4. 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…

  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. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Where does Anthony Davis fit in the NBA? Anywhere he wants.

    Apr 3, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    Kentucky Wildcats' Davis goes to the hoop against Kansas Jayhawks' Withey during the second half of their men's NCAA Final Four championship college basketball game in New Orleans

    On a crucial play with 24 seconds left in the NCAA national championship game, Kentucky’s Anthony Davis had both feet in the lane when Kansas’ Elijah Johnson popped out off a screen out behind the three point line on the left side and took a pass for a standard catch-and-shoot three. Make it and this…

  10. Eric Gordon to return to Hornets Wednesday against Nuggets

    Apr 3, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Eric Gordon — the key piece moving East when New Orleans sent Chris Paul to the Clippers — played in just two games at the start of the season before a knee injury sent him to the sidelines. Gordon is set to return to the lineup on Wednesday, according to Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune.…

  11. Clippers defending their way to six straight victories

    Apr 3, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    Randy Foye, Caron Butler, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, J.J. Hickson

    On paper, the Clippers might be the second-best team in the West — a couple of elite stars with some quality role players around them, decent roster balance — but they haven’t played like it for long stretches of this season. Their offense has been inconsistent and their defense has never impressed… Well, until the…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Mayo sticks dagger in Thunder

    Apr 3, 2012, 2:58 AM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    What you missed while watching Kentucky win the national title they seemed destined to win…. Memphis 94, Oklahoma City 88: Apparently the Thunder are not comfortable on top of my (and everybody’s) power rankings. This was always a dangerous letdown game for the Thunder — they beat the Heat, Lakers and Bulls in the eight…

  14. 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…

  16. Video: J.J. Hickson violates DeAndre Jordan’s personal space

    Mar 31, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, J.J. Hickson

    J.J. Hickson is considered a bust, a washout, a nobody. He was supposed to be a building block in Cleveland, flamed out, was traded to Sacramento for Omri Casspi and a draft pick, flamed out, was waived. Portland picked him up after they started tanking to take a flyer on him. He wasn’t supposed to…

  17. Clippers’ Reggie Evans fined $25,000 for obscene gesture

    Mar 30, 2012, 3:57 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans

    Reggie Evans was trying to be subtle. It wasn’t that subtle. Stu Jackson — NBA VP and administrator of justice — noticed and on Friday fined Evans $25,000 for an obscene gesture during the Clippers win on Tuesday over the Hornets. Evans tried the old “I’m not flipping you the bird, I’d scratching my face…

  18. 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…

  19. Video: Blake Griffin with two dunks for the price of one

    Mar 29, 2012, 8:26 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Channing Frye

    Yes, Blake Griffin made a poster out of Channing Frye, but that’s not what I want you to take away from the first dunk on this video. Well, that is part of it, I guess. But also, watch how the pick-and-roll between Chris Paul and Griffin has matured — Griffin comes out and sets the…

  20. Report: Kobe will push to bring Fisher, Odom back to Lakers

    Mar 28, 2012, 3:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    There is a reason players — even elite players — should not get to play general manager, too. With that thought in mind we bring you this news on the eve of Derek Fisher making his return to Los Angeles as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder — Kobe Bryant wants him back. And…

  22. Toe injury to sideline Clippers’ Mo Williams for two weeks

    Mar 27, 2012, 2:46 PM EDT

    David West, Mo Williams

    The Clippers are in the middle of playing 20 games in 31 days in March — no team has faced something like that in 45 years. It’s the price they pay for having a more traditionally paced schedule for the first month of the season. They need their depth to get through it. So this…

  23. Hornets coach apologized to Blake Griffin for foul

    Mar 27, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Vinny Del Negro

    Monty Williams was not the guy out there on the court that ran over Blake Griffin and hockey checked him to the ground. That was Jason Smith (who got a two game suspension for his actions). But Williams is the coach of the Hornets — the team Smith played for — and he said he…

  24. Clippers owner, GM say Vinny Del Negro’s job safe

    Mar 27, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Reports were swirling last week that Vinny Del Negro had lost the locker room and his job was in danger. The Clippers were struggling — they hadn’t played much defense all season and teams had adjusted to their offensive sets. But the guys who would pull the trigger on a Del Negro firing told T.J.…

    Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade and LeBron James talk during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    What you missed while being freaked out by 9-pound Gambian rats…. Knicks 89, Bucks 80: It wasn’t pretty. Actually, it was put-a-bag-over-it ugly. But with this win the Knicks are far more likely to make the playoffs, and it was our game of the night. Pacers 105, Heat 90: I don’t want to go all…
