    Apr 14, 2011, 10:42 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Media Day

    There is going to be a first-round upset. One of the top four seeds somewhere — probably in the deep Western Conference, but Boston may be a little nervous — is going to get beat. To help you better understand what is about to happen this weekend, we present ProBasketballTalk’s NBA Playoff previews for the…

  2. NBA Playoff Preview: San Antonio vs. Memphis

    Apr 14, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Shane Battier, Mike Conley

    SEASON RECORDS Spurs: 61-21 (No. 1 seed) Grizzlies: 46-36 (No. 8 seed) SEASON SERIES Tied: 2-2, with each team winning both games on their home court.

  3. Season’s wild final night shows why playoffs will be must-watch

    Apr 14, 2011, 2:11 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Lakers

    It was the last game on the last night of the regular season — and nobody wanted it to end. Not the  fans in Sacramento, who were loud and would not leave at the end of a wild game. Wild in every way — the shots were wild, the setting was wild,  that this last…

  4. Grizzlies to rest Zach Randolph Wednesday night, too

    Apr 13, 2011, 10:53 AM EST

    Zach Randolph

    It’s not tanking for a playoff seed, it’s resting. That’s the official line from Memphis coach Lionel Hollins on why he sat Zach Randolph Tuesday night (and Tony Allen). And he will do so again Wednesday night, Hollins told the Commercial Appeal. “Tony’s hurt,” Hollins said. “I didn’t want to play Zach these last two…

  5. Spurs to sit Duncan, Parker, Ginobili against Lakers

    Apr 12, 2011, 10:06 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    It doesn’t matter why — Spurs coach Gregg Popovich says they would have done it regardless of the opponent, conspiracy theorists will say he’s trying to make sure he avoids the Lakers as long as possible — what matters is it is happening. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili will all sit against the…

  6. Playoff scenarios: The East is set, the West we need Stephen Hawking to explain

    Apr 12, 2011, 9:54 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    Back East they have their act together. They’ve planned in advance and they know what they want to do for the playoffs. Out West they have procrastinated. Always waiting to the last second. And the whole thing is complicated. Trigonometry complicated. Bring in Stephen Hawking and Brian Green to explain it complicated. So we’ll start…

  7. Gregg Popovich no fan of that new-fangled three point line

    Apr 11, 2011, 4:11 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    We all knew Gregg Popovich was old school. We just didn’t know how old school Like 1970s old school. Like Steve Martin doing King Tut on Saturday Night Live old school. Like The Who when they still had Keith Moon as their drummer old school. (Actually, that last one is not a bad school to…

  8. Playoff seedings: The West is still a mess

    Apr 11, 2011, 8:50 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    In these uncertain times, we know a couple things for sure. We know Chicago will win the Eastern Conference and take on the Indiana Pacers in the first round. We know Orlando will host Atlanta in another first-round matchup. We know the Spurs are the top team in the West. After that, we’ve got no…

  9. Video: Tyreke Evans does a bad thing to Gary Neal

    Apr 7, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Tyreke Evans

    I no longer believe those reports that Tyreke Evans feet are not 100 percent. Because they look pretty good and he looks plenty explosive on this dunk. A coast-to-coast play where the Spurs Gary Neal tries to slide in late and draw the charge — a good thought — but he ends up in the…

  10. Playoff picture starts to come into focus (Heat may not like it)

    Apr 7, 2011, 2:03 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    Not everything is clear to me. Like how Rebecca Black has a career, for one. Or how Criminal Minds has been on television for so long. But the NBA playoff picture? That started to come into focus Wednesday and the Spurs like what they see. Miami, not so much. So here is a quick run…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs hold home court, Cleveland gets company on the bottom

    Apr 6, 2011, 9:08 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed watching one wild bike race from Chile… Spurs 97, Hawks 90: Huge win for the Spurs because along with the Lakers loss this basically sews up home court for the Spurs in the West. As for why they won what was at times a sloppy game, they attacked inside and controlled the…

  12. Spurs win, Lakers lose — top seed in the West rests in San Antonio

    Apr 6, 2011, 2:21 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    I hope y’all like Tex Mex, because the road to the NBA finals in the West runs through San Antonio. Sure, the two seed Lakers and top seed Spurs play next Tuesday, but now people will want to see that game about as much as they want to listen to a new Go-Go’s album. Or…

  13. Just 10 days left in the regular season, get your playoff seedings here

    Apr 4, 2011, 11:29 AM EST

    Tim Duncan,  Kobe Bryant

    The slog that can be the NBA regular season is almost over — you can see the playoffs from where you’re standing. Well, not from where the Cavs and Timberwolves are standing, but a majority of teams can. But things are not settled. So with 10 days left until the playoffs, here is a little…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Suns giftwrap a slump buster for the Spurs

    Apr 4, 2011, 8:27 AM EST

    James Anderson, Vince Carter, Garret Siler

    What you missed while taking the virtual tour of the Strahov Monastery Library in Prague… The Nuggets beating the Lakers was our game of the day. Spurs 114, Suns 97: Phoenix was without Steve Nash and the Spurs had everyone healthy and desperately needed a big win to build some confidence. So we found a…

  15. Steve Nash out for Suns as Spurs try to end slide

    Apr 3, 2011, 11:36 AM EST

    NASH_STEVE

    Good for the Spurs, bad for the Suns, terrible for ratings. Steve Nash will miss today’s matinée against the Spurs as he sits out his second consecutive game with flu-like symptoms. Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports: The Suns don’t have Steve Nash, who is home ill with flulike symptoms for a second consecutive game. The…

  16. Their fans may but Spurs are not going to panic

    Apr 1, 2011, 2:03 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    For the first time since Tim Duncan came to San Antonio, the Spurs have lost five games in a row. Right before the playoffs. In the season when it looked like they had found the fountain of youth, when they were back to being elite. The season maybe they could get one for the thumb.…

  17. Video: Manu Ginobili with the playground fake on Kevin Garnett

    Apr 1, 2011, 9:05 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    There were not a lot of highlights for the Spurs out of the loss to the Celtics Thursday. San Antonio got it’s big three back, the Celtics still don’t have a center, yet Boston won with room to spare. But there was this. Manu Ginobili put on a playground move and Kevin Garnett totally bit.…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston, Lakers send some messages

    Apr 1, 2011, 7:54 AM EST

    Celtics

    What you missed while watching the Hangover 2 trailer…. Celtics 107, Spurs 97: The Celtics ultimately will go as Rajon Rondo goes. He’s been injured and slumping. He’s back, and if he is the Celtics are back with him. You know the Celtics are going to defend well (they still need a stabilizing presence in…

  19. Spurs, Celtics slouching towards playoffs; count them out at your own peril

    Mar 30, 2011, 3:38 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    Back at the All-Star break, a Celtics vs. Spurs finals seemed like a good bet. Sure, it made the guys who count the profits at ABC/Disney nervous — you know they want Lakers/Heat, and they really don’t want the Spurs — but the Celtics and Spurs were playing the best basketball by far. That matchup…

  20. Ginobili out as Spurs’ slide continues; Grizzlies get breathing room

    Mar 28, 2011, 12:09 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    The Spurs have been without Tim Duncan for three games with his latest injury. They have now lost all three games after the Grizzlies edged the Spurs 111-104. And while they are 6-4 in their past ten, the slide has been apparent. The Spurs are entering the playoffs neither healthy nor high on momentum. Add…

  21. Spurs sign Da’Sean Butler for remainder of season

    Mar 25, 2011, 1:34 PM EST

    West Virginia v Kentucky

    The Spurs have decided to take a smart, calculated risk on Da’Sean Butler, and have signed the free agent forward, reports Hoopsworld’s Alex Kennedy on twitter. Just a year ago Butler was leading West Virginia into the NCAA Final Four — where he blew out his ACL against Duke. Teams are leery of guys coming…

  22. Lakers resurgence reminds us bigger is better

    Mar 23, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    Why, every year, do people fall for this? Back in December Lakers fans were freaking out — and the rest of the league hoped they were right — because something seemed off about the Lakers. They weren’t bad, but the two-time defending champions were not dominating everyone, were not focused, were not defending, were not…

  23. Tiago Splitter, your time is now

    Mar 23, 2011, 1:12 PM EST

    Reggie Williams,  Al Thornton, Tiago Splitter

    Tiago Splitter has come along slowly this season. More slowly than one expects of a guy who was the best center in Europe the past couple seasons to come along. He came to San Antonio with fanfare and was expected to be the guy Tim Duncan has needed with him up front,. Instead he has…

  24. MRI shows Duncan may be out more than two weeks

    Mar 22, 2011, 2:32 PM EST

    Tim Duncan

    An MRI on Tim Duncan’s ankle showed “between a grade one and grade two sprain” Spurs GM R.C. Buford said, reports Mike Monroe on twitter. A grade one sprain would mean about the two-week recovery Duncan himself said after the injury. A grade two sprain — which means a partial tearing of the ligaments –…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: The Lakers look like the Lakers again

    Mar 21, 2011, 2:14 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Notice that two of the top three are from the West? That’s because the East is stumbling toward the playoffs. 1. Lakers (50-20, LW #3). Four wins in a row and just one loss since the All-Star break. They won Monday without Andrew Bynum and will have another game without him Tuesday, but with his…
