The Portland Trail Blazers were eliminated by the Memphis Grizzlies, 99-93, on Wednesday night. They had an injury-ravaged team going into the playoffs so that didn’t help their cause. Game 5 did have a silver lining for the postseason. C.J. McCollum had a career-best 33 points, making seven three-pointers in the contest. Here are C.J.’s highlights: Hopefully, he can get a bigger...
The Atlanta Hawks escaped the Brooklyn Nets in Game 5 on Wednesday night, 107-97. The Hawks had a balanced attack that had all five of their starters in double digits.

So let’s step back for a minute and remind ourselves of this: Tim Duncan is 39 years old. In the NBA, that is old. Ancient. And he’s still getting 20-10 games in the NBA playoffs. In the Spurs’ big Game 5 win over the Clippers, he scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. That, my friend, is impressive. He keeps defying age just as the Spurs keep defying everyone’s expectations...

Dwight Howard has been dunking all over the place in the Rockets’ series against Mavericks. And in this play, he really didn’t need much help.

Zach LaVine had a pretty good rookie season. He averaged 10.1 points and 3.6 assists per game.

It was kind of a bizarro night at Brooklyn. But we saw the Utah Jazz version of Deron Williams in this thrilling overtime game between the Nets and the Atlanta Hawks.

Here is his highlight...
Kevin Durant has two new commercials. And it’s with fast food restaurant chain, Sonic. Yup. Former Sonic Durant is doing commercials for Sonic. How funny is that? Probably not too funny to people who miss their Seattle Supersonics. Anyway, here’s Durant’s ad about going one-on-one-on-one: And here’s the second commercial: WA-BOOOOSH. I’ll shut up now. *** Kevin Durant...
Power rankings are silly. We always fight over which team should be in certain spots when, ultimately, it really doesn’t matter. So we made our own silly “pointless rankings” about the things that went on in the league in the past week. This is the second playoff edition of the rankings. Disagree with these rankings? We already said that these were silly. I put them where I...
Monta Ellis looked really free during Sunday night’s game against the Houston Rockets. The Dallas Mavericks needed every single one of his 31 points as they stayed alive in their series, 121-109.
