Heat, Spurs looking to take command of their series.

Rondo complements the way fans have supported the Celtics, but it hasn’t been a real factor in players choosing to sign in Boston.

LeBron thought at home with the game on the line he should have gotten the call, but that was a clean block.

Too often we take the Spurs and the beauty of how they play basketball for granted. We shouldn’t.

Is this the Miami Heat’s Los Angeles Lakers imitation? The Miami Heat will be without three starters — Dwyane Wade, Greg Oden and Mario Chalmers — plus sixth man Ray Allen for Friday night’s game in Detroit, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. So if LeBron James didn’t think he was already carrying enough load……

I don’t need to remind you that Ray Allen makes big plays for the Heat in big games. But he will not be taking part in Wednesday’s big showdown with Indiana. Ray Allen (stomach virus) did not participate in this morning’s shootaround and is listed as doubtful for tonight’s #HEATgame.— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) March 26,…

I can’t see how these next two years could go wrong for the Lakers.

LeBron was unusually irritable after Heat’s seventh loss in last 11 games. Time to get the stars some rest?

Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love work well together lifting Timberwolves past Mavericks. Also, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks just keep on rolling.

Miami won two titles going small, playing “space and pace” basketball. (Tell me again how Mike D’Antoni’s system can’t win a title, because this is that with elite players who are better on defenders.) However as this season has gone on the Heat have moved more and more toward a big lineup, with Chris Bosh…

Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami. Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers…

Jermaine O’Neal has spent three careers in the NBA. He entered the league as its youngest player – undercutting Kobe Bryant by a few months – and spent four seasons in Portland buried on the bench. Then, he went to Indiana and made six straight All-Star games, even finishing third in 2004 MVP voting. Afterward,…

LeBron James could barely muster the strength to lift his head. He walked upcourt with his eyes to the ground, looked up to wave a dribbling Mario Chalmers ahead, and then dropped his eyes back to the court. The Miami Heat called timeout, and LeBron removed his facemask while dragging himself toward the bench. Spent…

Dwyane Wade hasn’t played more than six straight games in 2014, and that won’t change tonight. Wade has played in each of Miami’s last six contests, averaging 21.4 points on 62 percent shooting with 5.8 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game. If the Heat get this Wade in the playoffs, they’ll likely be…

About that mask — a black carbon fiber one to protect his broken nose — impacting LeBron James’ shot… not so much. Call him Bane. Or Batman. Or the Phantom of the Opera. Or Hannibal Lector. To me LeBron looked like LeBron — he dropped 31 points (his fifth straight game over 30) on 13-of-19…

Always wanted to be the WWE Heavyweight World Champion so today I surprised my teammates with their own for their collection. And by the way it’s a Great time to be a @WWE fan with the launch of#WWENetwork #LoveMyTeammates#WWEStandOutAsAKid #StriveForGreatness LeBron James is a big wrestling fan. Not Greco-Roman but the off-the-top-turnbuckle WWE style. And if you’re a WWE…

UPDATE: 9:08 pm: The Clippers have made it official, saying J.J. Redick is out “indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.” While he certainly has a variety of injuries, it is the back that is the most serious. They still expect to have him back for the playoffs. 7:45 pm: This is pretty…

This is exactly what Flip Saunders was talking about when he suggested this will be a slower than expected trade deadline because teams are not willing to part with picks in perceived good drafts. There is buzz out of Boston that GM Danny Ainge is shopping around just about everyone on the roster —Rajon Rondo…

This was a nationally televised against a top-four team in the West in the Clippers — these are the kind of games that shake the Heat out of their mid-season malaise. And when the Heat play like they did early Wednesday night it is a beautiful thing. Miami’s first quarter was as good as they…

When the Super Bowl is a blowout, as this year’s Seahawks’ win certainly was from the opening safety, what really matters is how good the Super Bowl party you’re at turns out to be. Looks like the one Ray Allen threw for his Miami Heat teammates was better than the one you were at. LeBron James…

Jordan Brand has always had a huge retail footprint (pun intended), but had yet to open specialized individual retail stores of its own — at least until now. From the official release: “[Saturday] morning in midtown Manhattan, Jordan Brand president Larry Miller, Footaction CEO Jake Jacobs and filmmaker Spike Lee officially welcomed the first consumers to…

All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

Miami just needed a challenge, apparently. The Heat had coasted through the last few weeks, still winning some games but not looking sharp, looking like a team that was bored with the season. Like a team a little tired and just waiting for the playoffs. Then the Spurs came to town and Miami woke up…

When Dwyane Wade has played this season he has played well — 18.9 points a game with a True Shooting percentage of 58 percent, plus he gets almost five rebounds and five assists a game. He deserves to be an All-Star (you fans are voting him in as a starter). But he’s missed about a…
