Jimmy Butler leaves game with knee sprain; Bulls fall to Nuggets 115-110

Blake Griffin trade not likely, despite rumors about Clipper star's alleged availability

There is a perception that Blake Griffin is available via trade, a perception, quite frankly, that’s incorrect. The Clippers don’t need to trade Griffin – even after he broke his hand punching assistant equipment manager Matias Testi. They...

Whiteside notches triple-double as Miami grabs 98-95 win in Charlotte

Hassan Whiteside had another big impact off the bench in a total team victory against a tenacious Hornets team. ESPN ranked Hassan Whiteside fifth in a recent list of the most overrated NBA players. Since returning back from an oblique injury that knocked him out of action for six straight games, the Miami Heat will gladly take his supposed empty stats after he recorded his third triple-double of the season in victory. It was the fourth overall in his career with double-digit totals in points, rebounds and blocked shots. This time he did it off the bench with 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10...

Bradley’s shot from just in front of Boston’s bench dropped through as the final second ticked off the clock, giving the Celtics their eighth win in nine games.

Hornets can't execute late, lose to Heat, 98-95

The Charlotte Hornets let a totally winnable game slip through their fingers as two possessions late in the fourth ended in disaster. This is the benefit of a star player, or for that matter two star players. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh came up big for the Miami Heat late in tonight's contest, while the Hornets struggled — failing to even get a shot off on perhaps the two most important possessions of the game. I think this loss hurts more than most for a number of reasons. Firstly, apologies to the city of Miami but their basketball team isn't all that fun to watch, and as a fan of the...

Recap: Grizzlies 91, Knicks 85 - "Why. Why. Why. Why. Why."

Slow start. Trail throughout. Second-half run. Too little too late. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Maybe next game, the Knicks won't spend the whole night trailing. A night after as bipolar a performance as possible, New York narrowed the extremes but still dug a hole they couldn't escape, losing 91-85 to the Memphis Grizzlies. Missing Carmelo Anthony (left knee soreness) and Lance Thomas (concussion symptoms), they opened with three-guard lineup of Jose Calderon, Langston Galloway, and Arron Afflalo paired alongside Kristaps Porzingis and Robin Lopez. These days it doesn't matter who starts; the...

Celtics 104, Cavs 103; Jason Lloyd's 30 thoughts on bad decisions, bad bounces and bad losses

CLEVELAND: Thirty thoughts for 30 points from LeBron James in Friday’s stunning 104-103 loss to the Boston Celtics… 1. LeBron James finally entered the locker room nearly an hour after the Cavs managed to fumble this one away, still in workout clothes and sweat dripping from his body. He was so aggravated with the loss that he put in a rare postgame workout in an attempt to burn off the frustration, but there is no outrunning the problems facing the Cavs right now. 2. James has been the one insistent all season that it’s not about wins and losses; it’s about the process. The...
