LeBron scores 49, Bosh buries Nets

LeBron James had 49 points. Let us just get that out of the way right now. He was brilliant, amazing, incredible, unstoppable and everything else that comes with James. OK, maybe that does not describe a 49-point, 16-for-24 shooting, 14-for-19 free throw performance. That is a 75.7 percent true shooting percentage. Something that is just insane. James battled the Nets in a game of...

Who wants to be the next big NBA coach?

The Lakers officially announced a few weeks ago that Mike D’Antoni would resign as the team’s head coach. For whatever reason — personality clashes and personnel most likely — D’Antoni was just not a good fit in Los Angeles with the pressures that come with being the Lakers’ head coach. D’Antoni’s fast-breaking style caught the dreams of new owner Jim Buss and helped...

5 Reasons Scott Brooks Lost Game 4

The Oklahoma City Thunder are probably still going to win their Western Conference semifinal series against the Los Angeles Clippers. They’ve been the better team through four games. They have the better superstars. (Sorry, Chris Paul, but it’s true.) They’ve regained home-court advantage. Los Angeles’s role players — specifically those called upon to shoot well — can’t...

Pacers comeback behind George’s star turn

Experience is a funny thing. You don’t know you have it until you need it and it often doesn’t matter until it does. Randy Wittman in his postgame press conference would not sit there and blame his team’s relative youth as the Wizards let a 16-point lead slip and watched Paul George lead the Pacers to a 3-1 series lead with a come-from-behind 95-92 victory at Verizon Center...

Clippers complete incredible comeback to top Thunder

The Clippers trailed by 16 points in the fourth quarter against a Kevin Durant playing at his All-Star, MVP best and a team that was flowing and getting its job done. Then the offensive flow stopped. The Clippers porous defense was able to hone in on Durant and Westbrook as they went one-on-one and convert the misses into fast break opportunities. The 3-point shooting started to...

Greg Oden: I know I’m one of the biggest busts

“I know I’m one of the biggest busts in NBA history and I know that it’ll only get worse as Kevin Durant continues doing big things … It’s frustrating that my body can’t do what my mind wants it to do sometimes. But worrying or complaining about it isn’t going to fix anything … I wish the circumstances would let me play more, but I certainly don’t regret coming...

Spurs too much for Blazers

The end is near for Portland. There is no other way around it to say this. The sweep seems to be on and the Blazers just are not in the same league as the Spurs. San Antonio opened up a big lead once again with 60 points in the first half yet again. Portland’s bad starts have dug it a hole that the team cannot burrow itself out of. Tony Parker scored 29 points, knifing in and out...

Raining 3s in Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Nets handed the Heat their first Playoff loss of the season behind a barrage of 3-pointers and a defense that baited the Heat into mid-range jumpers that clanked off the rim time and time again. The final score was a dominant 104-90 victory that felt wider than that final margin. The Nets hit 15 of 25 3-pointers and got good looks from beyond the arc with some breathtaking...

LeBron James’ superhuman and-1 flagrant foul

LeBron James had 55 and-1s this season. He had three again Brooklyn. None were as difficult as the one he completed in the first quarter of Game Three of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Kevin Garnett committed a flagrant foul and LeBron James did not care one bit. He made the basket. I doubt we have ever seen that happen.

Westbrook, Thunder take down Clippers

The Thunder took a 2-1 series lead with a gutsy 118-112 win over the Clippers at Staples Center on Friday night. Kevin Durant scored 36 points and Russell Westbrook took over the game late for 23 points and 13 assists. Oklahoma City and Los Angeles played within eight points of each other the entire game with the Thunder finally taking an eight-point lead late in the game. Los Angeles...

Walking Over Hot Coals: Pacers And Thunder Emerge

No, the two conference semifinal series that shifted scenes (and control) Friday night are not over. A 2-1 best-of-seven series is not a done deal. Moreover, too many plot twists have littered these NBA playoffs; offering a final verdict on a 2-1 series is plainly premature. And yet… If history tells us anything in the NBA, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Indiana Pacers probably...

Pacers silence Wizards in Game Three

What more needs to be said? The Pacers came, they shut the Wizards down and they regained home court advantage. Washington shot just 32.9 percent and barely broke 60 points, scoring 63 in the 85-63 loss. The Wizards had the lead in the first quarter and then slowly watched their shots continue to miss and the Pacers continue to build more and more confidence. Roy Hibbert put in another...

AT&T Center named top stadium experience in NBA

San Antonio’s AT&T Center was named the top NBA stadium experience for the second straight year, according to Stadium Journey Magazine. Like the team that occupies the building, Paul Swaney of Stadium Journey lauds the stadium for its simplicity and no-frills experience. You go to a Spurs game to watch basketball. And some pretty good basketball you will be watching. For the...

Elgin Baylor on Donald Sterling: Justice is served

Former Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor left the team and sued the Clippers, claiming he was discriminated against based on his race and his age. This despite the fact, many NBA fans noted, Baylor had failed to build anything resembling a quality team in Los Angeles. Quite possibly, he was hampered by an owner who could care less if his team won. Baylor lost his lawsuit, but...

Boredom seems to be Spurs only adversary

Another game. Another clinic for an ill-prepared and not-quite-old-enough opponent for the Spurs. This might as well be the storyline for these kind of matchups for the past 20 years when it comes to the Spurs. Show up, pick the opponent apart and win running away. Or at least finish the game before the contest actually concludes. Excuse me if it seemed like Tony Parker was yawning...

Heat ease past Nets

The Heat were not having any of the Nets in Game Two. A late possession was actually four that demoralized and crushed the Nets. Ray Allen dug out a rebound, Dwyane Wade tipped out another rebound, Chris Bosh chased down another one. Sure LeBron James needed four attempts to get that one make, but the nearly two minutes Miami took off the clock had to destroy any confidence Brooklyn...

Fans spoof NBA2K glitches

We all love NBA2K. There is not a better, more realistic basketball video game out there. The experience has become completely immersive and extremely realistic. Realistic is not real. And, yes, there are still glitches to work out. These fans, wearing Sixers jerseys for some unknown reason, decided to play out what the 2K glitches would look like in reality. They are not pretty...

Hibbert’s outburst helps Pacers tie series, maybe find consistency

Prior to last night’s Game Two win over the Wizards, the Pacers were down 1-0 in their second round series and went into Wednesday’s game needing a win desperately to prevent Washington from stealing two games in a row on the road. Roy Hibbert — a 2014 Eastern Conference All-Star — made sure his team was not going to fall into a 2-0 hole and turned in his best performance...

Starry night in Oklahoma City

Woefully absent in Oklahoma City’s Game One blowout los against Los Angeles was that sort of star power Los Angeles got from Chris Paul. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were forcing things and trying too hard to get things going. That is usually when Oklahoma City struggles. Especially when Westbrook takes it upon himself to be the driving force for the Thunder’s offense....

Pacers get some Hibbert, get a win

Roy Hibbert did manage to show up for a Playoff game after his goose egg performance in Game One. In fact, his performance in Game Two might have been better than any performance he has had in the last several months. If Indiana gets this Roy Hibbert, the team will be very difficult to beat. Particularly with that defense. Hibbert scored 28 points — not a typo — and grabbed nine...

It is good to be the MVP. Kevin Durant will grace the cover of NBA2K15, due in stores October 2014. This will be Durant’s third video game cover after he was on the cover of NBA2K13 with Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose and the failed NBA Elite 11 game put out by EA Sports. No word yet if Durant will individually thank every single one of the game designers just like he thanked his...

Pure Spurs-y domination

Welcome to the big stage Portland. This is where the Playoffs really begin. The Trail Blazers have not been out of the first round since 2001 and have played the exact same number of Playoffs games in franchise history as Tim Duncan. There was a little bit of an experience gap. That, of course, is ancillary. History will not win or decide this series. Talent and skill and execution...

Gilbert Arenas, Tracy McGrady rip Roy Hibbert

Life is not good for Roy Hibbert right now. The dude cannot get his game going, much less grab a rebound. His goose egg performance in Game One drew some ire from fans as the last straw of a Playoffs of inconsistency and lack of confidence. He is averaging 4.6 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. This is a 7-foot-2 former All Star and the linchpin of Indiana’s vaunted defense. Without...
