Bucks vs. Lakers Preview: Milwaukee heads West looking for five straight wins over Lakers

The Bucks head West for a four-game road swing, with the first stop being in sunny Los Angeles where crazy things like wind chill don't exist. Imagine that. Milwaukee has won its last four games against the Lakers and will look to make it five tonight. Should they win, it would tie their current longest winning streak against any opponent, the Sixers being the other team. Speaking of (former) Sixers, Michael Carter-Williams and company will look to build on a strong debut against one of the league's worst defenses on Wednesday. The Lakers come into tonight with the league's second worst...

Cousins officially ruled out against Spurs

Sacramento's hopes to beat the Spurs took a big blow today as DeMarcus Cousins has officially been ruled out of action for tonight's game due to a left ankle sprain and left hip contusion.  Cousins landed awkwardly late in Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies and while he didn't leave the game, he was limping noticeably afterwards. Cousins joins Darren Collison and Eric Moreland on the inactive list.  At this time it's unknown who will start in Cousins place although it's quite possible that we see more of Carl Landry than we have been as he's Sacramento's only other reliable low-post...

Jazz look to return to winning ways against the Nuggets

Utah Jazz (21-35) @ Denver Nuggets (20-37) Pepsi Center • Denver, CO 7:00 p.m. (MT) • TV: ROOT Sports • Radio: 1280 AM / 97.5 FM Tonight the Utah Jazz try to get back on track after a humiliating loss at home to the Los Angeles Lakers. Right now the Jazz are in a 'hot' streak of productive play. Not every game in February has been a win, but they've been competitive against the Trail Blazers, Grizzlies, Suns and Mavericks (all losses), while taking home wins against the Kings, Pelicans, Trail Blazers, and Spurs. The Lakers game is an obvious blemish that a solid road win against the...

Julius Randle has been studying film and taking notes for the Lakers

Julius Randle has been studying the game of basketball while he's been out. Julius Randle may be out of action, but he's still engaged in the Los Angeles Lakers' season. Randle recently spoke with Kevin Ding of Bleacher Report and detailed the kind of work he's done under the guidance of general manager Mitch Kupchak while he recovers from his broken leg. What he revealed is akin to birds singing a beautiful tune to Lakers fans ears. Randle has spent the time watching more NBA action than he ever has in his life, keeping himself occupied with league pass. Taking the time to study the...

Game Preview: Warriors take on the Raptors

Warriors look to bounce back after an overblown loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. There's an old hoops adage that draws more controversy than Charles Barkley speaking on live television. "Teams compete and superstars win." Perhaps you're a believer in a one or two man flurry responsible for team success (aka win shares). Regardless, when the Warriors enter The Air Canada Centre, they'll seek to shut down the Raptors superstars while getting they're own off. The W's haven't had two games in a row where a player failed to score more than 20 points. They'll seek to rebound off a tough loss to...

Kings vs. Spurs Preview: San Antonio's merely adopted losing. We were molded by it.

San Antonio comes into Sleep Train Arena on an uncharacteristic four-game losing streak.  It's been several years since they've had a losing streak of five or more, while Sacramento hasn't won back to back games since November.  Today's action tips off at 7:00 pm on Comcast SportsNet California and on KHTK 1140. 3 THINGS TO LOOK FOR 1. The Kings are hurting for depth.  Darren Collison is likely out for the remainder of the season so we'll continue to see a lot of Ray McCallum and Andre Miller.  McCallum played very well against Mike Conley on Wednesday, and he'll have another tough test...

Phoenix Suns Locker Room Report: Bledsoe and Tucker Talk Win Over Thunder

It was a crazy game with many highs and lows...but mostly highs. The Phoenix Suns beat the Oklahoma City Thunder last night in an overtime win at home, that was also televised nationally, and featured their new "Phoenix Rising" grey-ash and amber colored uniforms. If you were looking for a good story, the Suns certainly gave you plenty to chew on. The Suns beat the Thunder who currently hold the 8th spot in the Western Conference and are now only 1.5 games behind. They got their first quality win after a major roster reshuffle against one of the best teams in the league (even without Kevin...

2014-15 Season game 58: Oklahoma City Thunder vs Phoenix Suns full coverage

Less than a month ago, the Thunder were 23-24 after dropping four of five miserable games. The team bottomed out against the Knicks, and Kevin Durant had made what turned out to be a premature, ineffective return to the court in a depressing 85-74 loss to the Grizzlies. Phoenix, on the other hand, was 28-21, smiling down on both the Thunder and Pelicans from their cozy 8 seed chair. The script has completely flipped since, with Phoenix going 2-7 in February, and OKC going 9-1. If the point guard exodus the Suns orchestrated at the trade deadline didn’t close the curtains on their...

Phoenix Suns Draft Preview: The Mysterious Malik Pope

RIP #Top5Protected Draft Position Update #Top5Protected is no more friends. It's a sad time. Fortunately (?) the Suns have their own first-round pick still and it will surely stay in the lottery. The bright side (HA!) of this is every game the Suns lose they get closer and closer to gaining more ping pong balls. However, Suns fans should not be looking forward to moving up in the draft standings. Playoff hopefuls in the East like Brooklyn, Detroit, Indiana, and Boston are at least seven wins behind them in the upside-down standings trying to chase Charlotte and Miami for the seven and eight...

Fantasy Friday: An Appreciation of DeAndre Jordan

The Clippers' biggest man is showing his worth with Blake Griffin out of action. Let me be the 10,000th writer to ask, have you seen DeAndre Jordan's numbers??? Seriously, HAVE YOU SEEN HIS NUMBERS?!?!? The Clippers have played seven games without Blake Griffin, their star forward, the face of the franchise, the last guy announced during lineup introductions. Across those seven games, DeAndre Jordan has scored 20+ points four times -- thank you, Hack-A-DJ. He's grabbed 20+ rebounds twice, and at least 15 boards in each of the last six. He's failed to block two shots just once in that...
