Jimmy Butler is playing through some kind of injury, we think?

Vincent Goodwill of CSNChicago with the story: Butler initially seemed to injure himself late in last Friday night’s game in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors, but he came out right as it was evident in the last minute or so that the Bulls could do little more than challenge the champs. Butler was the best player on the floor that night and jokingly dodged any questions about a limp or a bad step. He reticently admitted something’s bothering him, whether it’s a foot sprain or foot strain, either he won’t reveal or he doesn’t yet know. Yeah, I remember that now,...

Robin Lopez, that cur, goes after Brook Lopez's cat!!

The Nets and Knicks play their first game Friday night at Madison Square Garden but the prelims have already begun, and wouldn't you know it, it's Robin, that cur, who's casting the first stone ... at Brook's cat. "Brook’s cat is very two-faced," Robin tells The Post. "Everybody loves Brook’s cat. To everybody’s face, he’s such a nice cat. And it may sound like I’m joking, but I am dead serious. He acts like a lazy, sweet cat when everybody is looking. But when their heads turn, he’ll try to chase after [my cat] Edward. The second I lay eyes on him, he’ll act like, ...

Rockets Will Start Dwight Howard & Clint Capela

J.B. Bickerstaff made it official. Dwight Howard and Clint Capela will start alongside each other going forward. Houston Rockets head coach J.B. Bickerstaff has confirmed Dwight Howard and Clint Capela will both start moving forward. The decision relegates Terrence Jones to the bench and means the Rockets will play a "Twin Towers" configuration in an effort to improve the team's defense and spark better offensive play. The Howard-Capela pairing showed promise against the 76ers, but memories of Howard-Asik should give analysts pause until the Rockets face a stiffer opponent. Capela currently...

2015-16 Season game 17: Oklahoma City Thunder vs Detroit Pistons full coverage

Where They At: Oklahoma City Thunder The Thunder are on a roll, winners of three straight and enjoying MVP-level play from both Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Westbrook has somehow improved on his production from last season, and Durant has showed very little rust in his limited time back from a hamstring injury (which interrupted his comeback from those foot surgeries last year). The Thunder are in the chase for the two-seed in the Western Conference, again looking to be even with the Spurs and a notch below the Warriors. More important than the explosive scoring that the...

Watch Kawhi Leonard's monster game against the Nuggets

If you missed the game you've probably seen Kawhi Leonard's line from Friday night's game against Denver but if you need a reminder, the young stud finished one steal short of the ultra-rare five-by-five (five or more points, boards, assists, steals and blocks.) Final line: 25 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 blocks and 4 steals in 32 minutes of work. That's ridiculous. So for posterity, and just to celebrate the superstar, I put together a little highlight mix of his superb performance. Enjoy Spurs fans Music: "Jasper Country Man" by the great flutist Bobbi Humphrey off of her funk-jazz...

The Sixers Losing Streak and Jahlil Okafor Bad News

fun week! If you've tuned into any of the last 27 regular season Sixers games, you for sure know the result off the top of your head. Since the Sixers beat the Denver Nuggets 99-85 on March 25th -- led by Ish Smith, Thomas Robinson, Furkan Aldemir, Glenn Robinson III, and Jason Richardson -- they have not won a regular season game. Jahlil Okafor, after winning a National Championship at Duke, has gone his entire pro career, 20.7% of his rookie season, without a victory. I started dating my girlfriend on March 28th. You get it. But honestly, the abundance of moral victories, such as they...

Film Room: Lance Stephenson showed up and made us feel some feelings

No one knows what his status is on this team anymore, but Lance Stephenson had a very nice performance Friday night as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the New Orleans Pelicans. This Film Room will be diving into it. The arrival of Lance Stephenson in Hollywood was something that either made you cringe or made you smile. He’s the unopened box of Christmas toys; there’s no telling what joys or horrors are waiting inside for you.

Three takeaways from the Rockets win over the 76ers

Rockets get a win over the win less 76ers, but it's a win and here are some takeaways. The Houston Rockets finally break the losing streak with a two-point win over the winless 76ers, 116-114. Whether you believe this shouldn't count as a win or not, who cares... It's a win. The Rockets did try to hand the 76ers the win with 22 turnovers, but they were able to get a few stops when they needed it down the stretch to secure the win. Below are three takeaways from the win: Can't we just stick with one lineup for a while? Before the game Friday night, J.B. Bickerstaff mentioned that changes to...

Study Hall: Kawhi Leonard punishes Nuggets

The Spurs started this one ice cold, and outside of Parker and Leonard, never found a lasting offensive rhythm. But, true to this season's form, they played suffocating defense and won by 11 despite scoring just 91 points. Spurs 91, Nuggets 80 - Nov 27, '15 The Duncan- and Ginobili-less Spurs were able to keep the W train rolling against an overmatched Nuggets team which was missing Kenneth Faried. It wasn't pretty, was sloppy at times, and was played at a downright glacial pace of 94 possessions (5 below league average), but the Spurs strangled the life out of the Nuggets...

Poor defense, lack of communication plagues Kings

The Minnesota Timberwolves came into Sacramento and handled the Kings with ease, leaving George Karl and his team searching for answers on the poor defensive performance. Everything that was right against the Milwaukee Bucks was not against the Minnesota Timberwolves. A lack of practice in between games may be the problem right now for the Sacramento Kings, but that is one of many problems when the concepts of giving up on plays and lack of communication are brought up by the team after a game. The Timberwolves moved to .500 (8-8) on the season after defeating the Kings 101-91 Friday night...

Hawks vs Spurs preview: Atlanta looks for rare win in San Antonio

The Atlanta Hawks look to wrap up their three-game road trip with a rare win in San Antonio against the Spurs. Another grueling stretch of the schedule will end for the Atlanta Hawks Saturday night when they wrap up a four-games in five nights stretch against the San Antonio Spurs. The Hawks have gone 2-1 over that stretch but will have to reverse a trend if they are to beat the Spurs. Atlanta has lost nine straight games to the Spurs and 18 straight regular season games in San Antonio. Mike Budenholzer has built the Hawks in the Spurs image, but he has had no luck against his former boss...

Raptors look for revenge tonight against the Washington Wizards

Toronto takes on Washington for the first time since last year's playoff drubbing. While on a quick sojourn from the house that Drake turnt, the Toronto Raptors (10-6) and Washington Wizards (6-7)will meet for the first time (excluding preseason!) since the W's embarrassed Toronto in the first round of the playoffs last year. Toronto, riding high after big time wins over both the Clippers and Cavaliers, looks to continue it's three game winning streak on the road. John Wall and Co. must be glad to be home, as they're going to be trying to snap a nasty streak of their own: they've lost their...

The Downbeat #1783: The Worst Song about Gordon Hayward

I FOUND INTERNET GOLD. I found the absolutely worst song about Gordon Hayward. You're welcome. It's so bad it's awesome. Speaking of Gordon Hayward, he finally broke out against the Clippers with 33 points. The Utah Jazz will tip off against the New Orleans Pelicans today at 7:00PM MST. Gordon Hayward over his career has averaged 15 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists against the Pellies. He has done this on 45% shooting and 44% from 3. Without Anthony Davis manning the middle tonight (still questionable) the Jazz could have a blowout on their hands. This will be a perfect game for Gordon...

Lakers vs. Trail Blazers Preview: Lakers get back on their bicycle in Portland

The Lakers get a chance to show some adjustments after getting burned by Damian Lillard and the Trail Blazers just two games ago. The Los Angeles Lakers end their Thanksgiving break, travelling up to Oregon to face the Portland Trail Blazers for the second time in three games. Last go around Damian Lillard dropped 30 points and a career-high 13 assists on the purple and gold. It was also a game featuring Portland blazing up and down the court for fastbreak buckets while the Lakers' put up just two points in transition. They'll look for a much different outcome than getting ran out of the...
