Right move to trade Rajon Rondo, but Celtics waited too long

Danny Ainge finally decided it was time to send the last standing piece of his 2008 championship roster on its way. It was the right move, there’s no doubt about it. But couldn’t it have been done sooner? Ainge’s Plan A was no secret: Find a star to place next to Rajon Rondo. This plan began […]

Chicago Bulls vs. Memphis Grizzlies game preview, injury report, lineups

No Rose again. [Thanks to SnellYouLater for today's game preview -yfbb] Tonight, the Chicago Bulls travel down to Memphis to face their Western Conference doppelganger in the Memphis Grizzlies. Both teams play a similar style of basketball, emphasizing defense first, making for what should be a good matchup and close game with or without Derrick Rose. The Bulls' star point guard is not traveling with the team down to Memphis because he has a stomach virus, although team officials have not ruled him out from playing in the game saying that he could show up on his own later and play. ...

Robin Lopez's Top Simpson Shows

The Trail Blazers center takes a moment from rehab to dish on The Simpsons. Portland Trail Blazer Robin Lopez will have time on his hands as he recovers from the injury he sustained during the recent Spurs game. RollingStone.com interviewed Lopez on his favorite The Simpsons shows knowing his predilection for the off beat adult animated sitcom. "When I was younger," Lopez says, "the first one that appealed to me was 'Lemon of Troy.' My favorite thing about that episode was seeing the world of Shelbyville for the first time, and then seeing the kids' world. It was kind of what it was like...

Jim Ingraham: Cleveland Cavaliers' defense showing signs of improvement

A few days ago, after one of the Cavs' worst defensive games maybe ever, in a loss to Atlanta, Kyrie Irving was back out on the court following the game ... to work on his shooting. Rest easy, Cavs fans. They have met the enemy, and it is them. Irving, ironically, has been one of the Cavs' better defenders this season, although that's sort of like being called the best surfer in Kansas City.

Wall Dishes, Nene swishes in 105-103 Win over Miami Heat

John Wall and Nene combine for 40 points to beat the Miami Heat after their red-hot start to the first half. Look, I'm not really one to talk about clutch performances, but the Washington Wizards came up big in the fourth quarter against the Miami Heat. They led the Heat 29-25 after the first quarter, but the Heat caught fire in the second quarter and only missed three shots. They scored 30 points on 12-15 shooting in the quarter and assisted on six of their makes. The Wizards' normally stout defense was nowhere to be found in the first half and the Heat shot 64% from the field as they...

Bulls vs. Grizzlies final score: Jimmy Butler, Nikola Mirotic power Chicago to upset victory

Butler did it again, while Mirotic scored a career-high 27 points in an impressive road win. The Bulls were without Derrick Rose (puking his brains out) and Taj Gibson (another bum anke) once again on Friday night, and considering it was the second night of a back-to-back against the 21-4 Grizzlies, that should have spelled doom. Instead, it was the Grizzlies who looked like they were the tired ones for much of the night (they have played a ton of overtimes in the last week), and the Bulls came away with their second consecutive 103-97 victory. I'd say this was shocking, but we shouldn't...
