Clippers 100, Thunder 98: On the ESPN studio show, injured Clippers guard Chauncey Billups said the key to…

  2. Who gets the most “hockey assists” in the NBA?

    Apr 11, 2012, 4:59 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce

    In the NBA, the guy who makes the pass to set up a shooter gets an assist. But often you will see a point guard drive and draw the defense, kick out to a guy at the arc, who will then see the defense rotate and make a pass to a second open shooter who…

  3. Grant Hill could return from knee injury next week

    Apr 10, 2012, 1:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    The Suns are trying to making a late push for the postseason, but have had to do so without Grant Hill, the team’s best defensive player, for the last eight games. He may, however, be ready to rejoin them for the final six of the regular season. Hill had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee…

  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,…

  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. With Kobe out, Suns hand Lakers worst loss of the season

    Apr 8, 2012, 2:57 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant was a late scratch on Saturday in Phoenix, but his absence wasn’t the reason for the Lakers’ 125-105 loss to the Suns, the team’s worst of the season. It was the defense, or more specifically, the lack thereof that enabled Phoenix to set season highs in total points (125) and points in a…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Report: Steve Nash wants a three-year deal this summer

    Apr 4, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    Suns guard Nash looks to drive on Mavericks center Mahinmi during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Steve Nash will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and whether he stays in Phoenix or chooses to try his luck playing for a contender somewhere else, he will be looking to sign a three-year deal to do so. From Marc Stein of ESPN.com: Nash, who turned 38 in February, also told ESPN.com in…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Turns out LeBron can score a lot

    Apr 4, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

  12. 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…

  13. Grant Hill says he will push to be back this season with Suns

    Apr 2, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    The questions here are: Why? And what happens when they are eliminated from the chase? But for now, Suns swingman Grant Hill said he is pushing hard to get back to the team following knee surgery last week. He wants to help their long shot playoff push, reports the Arizona Republic. Hill’s expectation to return…

  14. 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…

  15. With this season done, will Jeremy Lin be a Knick next season?

    Apr 1, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v New York Knicks

    Now what, Jeremy Lin? I don’t mean the next six weeks — that is surgery and rehab for the torn meniscus in his knee. He’ll work hard with the hopes of joining the Knicks in the playoffs. But by the time he is back and able to really help, it may well be too late.…

  16. Dallas’ gunner Jason Terry says Heat on his free agent radar

    Mar 30, 2012, 9:53 AM EDT

    Jason Terry

    Miami is becoming the team where veterans who are willing to play for less want to go to win a ring. You can add Dallas’ Jason Terry to the list. The Mavericks’ second leading scorer is a free agent this summer — he didn’t get a contract extension as part of Dallas’ effort to free…

  17. Grant Hill to have minor knee surgery, may miss rest of season

    Mar 30, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    In a blow to the already fading playoff hopes of the Phoenix Suns, they are going to be without Grant Hill for most if not all of the rest of the season. Hill is set to have his knee scoped out on Friday, reports Paul Coro at the Arizona Republic. A magnetic resonance imaging test…

  18. Video: Steve Nash says “anything is possible” with free agency

    Mar 29, 2012, 9:03 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash was a guest on NBC’s SportsTalk on Thursday and talked about the Suns and their push for the playoffs… But that’s not what most of you care about. You want to know about what jersey Nash is going to put on next season. Nash stuck to his script — he’ll looks hard at…

  19. Steve Nash says he would “definitely listen” to offer from Heat

    Mar 29, 2012, 4:05 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    This summer the courting of free agent Steve Nash is going to get out of control. He could well end up deciding to play for the Suns, but first pretty much every contending team — whether they can afford to bring him in or not — will be linked to him. If not outright reach…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. It’s OK if there’s no mania behind Jimmer

    Mar 24, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    “The first time he didn’t play [on Feb. 2 against Portland], people were calling the paper and pitching their theories,” said Jason Jones, the Kings’ beat writer for The Sacramento Bee. “People don’t want to believe that he might not be ready to play. They want to believe Keith has it in for him.” The…

  25. The “Violence Against Blake Griffin” situation

    Mar 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    He’s asking for it. OK, stop, that right there. That’s me trying to snag your attention with some sort of bombastic statement. I can assure you my position is more nuanced than this phrase, which by the way, in the context of violence of any sort — on-court, off-court, sexual, non-sexual — should never, ever…
