Free throws, mistakes nearly cost Lakers win

MINNEAPOLIS The basketball is in Steve Nash's hands, then quickly tossed away. The ball is a rebound that no longer matters. Ricky Rubio's hands are on his head. The clock rests at zero. He doesn't know where to walk or to look. Jason Phillips, a referee, is answering the Timberwolves point guard: "No. Okay, alright." But that was all. No redo, no replay...

Where are the Boston Celtics Now? 5 on 5

This has been a crazy last month of basketball for us Boston Celtic' fans, a lot of ups and downs and inconsistency. The writers from Celticslife weigh in. We are doing a 4 on 5 today (like when we used to have to do with Perkins on our team offensively), let's see how we produce. 1. We have just lost four games in a row that we should have won, where are we now? Terry...

Timberwolves limited by negative self-image

MINNEAPOLIS Think of a basketball game like a blank slate. Two teams, no expectations, just 24 players and 48 minutes. The Timberwolves need to think of games like that, at least. Of course there are talent discrepancies and reputations, superstars, benchwarmers and the vast in-between. But too often, it seems, these Timberwolves let the minutiae of being the injured underdog set...

Minnesota to be tested by desperate L.A.

Reliving Heat's 27-game win streak

The Heat's unforgettable chase for history has come to a screeching halt at 27 games after the Bulls pulled off the upset Wednesday night. But don't fret because it's time to relive all the highlights (remarkable and ridiculous) Miami authored during this nearly two-month run. The Harlem Shake Love 'em or hate 'em, the Miami Heat know how to have a good time...

Where’s all the hype for Avery Bradley’s vicious dunk?

Last week I voiced my displeasure with the (over) reaction from fans, media and players to big guys (DeAndre Jordan, LeBron James) dunking over guards (Brandon Knight, Jason Terry). If you are 6-10 inches taller and 50-80 pounds heavier than a man, you should be able to dunk on, over and through him. Avery Bradley threw a hefty counter punch for all the guards when he drove the lane...
