Thunder make their mark

The Thunder coasted for the first half, hung on for the second and took down a Game One victory with only the slightest bit of warning from the Grizzlies. Oklahoma City built as much as a 25-point lead in the first half and held a 20-point lead at halftime. It looked easy for Kevin Durant […]

Hawks spring trap on Pacers

The Hawks never left any doubt. They were unafraid and never backed down. Seeding did not matter. The regular season did not matter. Atlanta made the Playoffs and proved the team is here to stay. The Pacers know that now. Jeff Teague stepped up in the Playoffs once again, slicing up Indiana’s once vaunted defense […]

Clippers’ Crawford with the half court shot

Clippers’ Jamal Crawford is a scorer whether it be inside or outside the paint and he displayed his range in game 1 of the series versus the Warriors.

With seconds left going into the half, Crawford heaved a shot from half court which only saw the ball swish through the net.

Despite L.A. dropping game one to Golden State, Crawford definitely gave the fans something to cheer about.

A foul taste for the Clippers

Blake Griffin was on the bench having fouled out after playing just 19 minutes. Chris Paul thought he was fouled as the ball trickled off his hands and out of bounds. Meanwhile, the Warriors were going to the line and missing their free throws before Darren Collison stepped out of bounds trying to corral a […]

Bucks get new ownership, new lease on life

The end of the season was a welcome site for the Bucks. When you had Playoff dreams after spending a healthy chunk of change in the offseason and only getting 15 wins out of it. Of course, that got them the top lottery odds and a 25 percent chance at winning the top overall pick […]

Spurs’ Peter Holt steps down as chairman of board of governors

All four key players in the next round of collective bargaining negotiations will be completely new and will not have been principal negotiators from the lockout in 2011. NBA commissioner David Stern, NBPA executive director Billy Hunter and NBPA President Derek Fisher have all been replaced. Now Peter Holt is stepping down.

Houston’s Harden might want to learn defense before the postseason begins

Rocket’s James Harden is one prolific scorer in the NBA. He can drive to the rim, nail the outside shot and put up huge numbers any given night.

And with the postseason about to begin this weekend, the Rockets will need his offensive firepower and hopefully, he will learn to play defense very quick.

Check out James and his not-so-great defensive chops throughout the 2013-14 regular season. Seriously, how does he miss so many defensive assignments, or just lose his man?

Craig Sager has leukemia

In shocking news for the NBA family, Craig Sager’s son announced on Twitter that his father will undergo treatment for acute leukemia int he next 3-4 weeks. He is expected to miss the entire postseason.

This is a huge loss for the NBA family as Sager has always brought his own style — both in his clothes and in his reporting — that is truly unique. He treats the NBA with respect but also plenty of joviality and lightheartedness. His repartee with Gregg Popovich is the stuff of legend and makes every TNT broadcast he is a part of truly enjoyable.

There will certainly be something missed for fans with Sager not on TV. The show will go on though.

And we wish Sager a speedy recovery.

Knicks win the 2013-14 Championship Belt

Yes, the Knicks missed the Playoffs. Yes, their season was a complete mess and total disaster. Yes, there is nothing positive about their season. Except this. The New York Knicks won the 2013-14 Championship Belt. What is the Championship Belt? It is the simple idea, borrowed from professional wrestling and boxing, that to be the […]

Brooklyn Nets vs Miami Heat

The Nets on a collision course with the Heat in the playoffs?
