Does Lionel Hollins want Brook Lopez back next season? Yes, yes, yes...

Brook Lopez has a $16.7 million player option for next season, which he can choose to accept or he can decide to opt out and become a free agent this summer. That, for the 26-year-old, is going to be a tough choice. As we pointed out earlier, he can take the $16.7 million option and opt out next summer,...

Are Knicks and 76ers tanking, or just that bad?

Let’s go lose this game,’ Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. Not bad for a team that was the underdog for 99 straight games before its 97-81 victory over the Knicks on March 20. Given how things have worked out for Popovich’s team after it won the lottery and got Tim Duncan in 1997, it would be hard to blame any team for trying to boost its odds for getting the No. 1 pick if it thinks there’s a franchise player in the draft. Surging San Antonio returns Tuesday to Miami for the first time since victories in Games 3 and 4 of last year’s NBA Finals put the Spurs on the verge of...

Jazz at Timberwolves Game Thread

Will the Jazz be looking for payback after last week's Wolves overtime win in Utah? Jazz at Wolves7:00 pm CDTFS North A week ago, the massively shorthanded Timberwolves went to Utah and came away with a shocking 106-104 overtime win against the Jazz. The Jazz dominated the glass and won the turnover battle, but a completely uncharacteristic 12-19 from three for the Wolves got them to overtime and won them the game. Zach LaVine (5-6), Chase Budinger (4-8) and the now departed Sean Kilpatrick (3-4) bombed away especially late, and the Wolves executed what soccer announcers call a smash and...

Five Stars: Heat 109, Pistons 102

Miami and Detroit split the top 10 players, but Miami placed their three longest tenured players in the top five. First Star Andre Drummond (DET) 33.3 Drummond played 39 minutes, and shot a scorching 14-of-17 from the field along with four-of-seven from the free throw line. Along with his 32 points, he added five offensive and nine defensive rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and a steal to finish at plus-1. He didn't turn the ball over, and was whistled for three fouls. Second Star Dwyane Wade (MIA) 32.1 Wade scored a season-high 40 points on 14-of-27 shooting, missing his only attempt...

Wizards owner Ted Leonsis bemoans Wizards' energy after loss to Rockets

After the Wizards' fifth loss in six games, the Wizards' owner took to his blog to voice his concerns with the team's recent performance. There's any number of signs you can point to that things haven't been going well for the Wizards. You can point to how they're 12-20 since January 20th, the 23rd-best record in that span. Or, you can point to how the Wizards have the 27th best offensive rating since the All Star break. Or, you can just point to Michael Lee's piece for the Washington Post about the team's struggles. But as clear as those signs are, it goes to a new level when Ted Leonsis...

Warriors ticket resale rules prompt lawsuit

In a suit filed Sunday in federal court in San Francisco, StubHub claims the Warriors and Ticketmaster are violating federal and state antitrust laws by coercing season-ticket holders to resell their tickets only through Ticketmaster. “It is a looming threat for all sports fans,” the suit said, predicting similar restrictions on ticket resales for other teams, resulting in higher fees and fewer services. The lawsuit focused on the company’s arrangement with the team to limit resales of tickets by fans who couldn’t attend a game, or by brokers who had obtained the tickets, starting...

Warriors and Clippers keep chipping away

Warriors and Clippers keep chipping away LOS ANGELES - In a lot of ways, the meetings between the Warriors and Clippers have devolved into something closer to a WWE-like shouting match than a basketball rivalry. The games still generally include good play between the game’s two best point guards and two inside guys vying for Defensive Player of the Year, but it’s easy to miss the on-court beauty because of all of the off-court barking. Green, who has inflammation in both shins, probably won’t play when the teams meet Tuesday at Staples Center, but he’s always at the fulcrum of the...
