Kevin Love returns vs. Kings, Matthew Dellavedova remains out

The Cavs get Kevin Love back against the Kings. The Cleveland Cavaliers will see a key player return to the court tonight while another remains on the sideline. Per ESPN's David McMenamin, power forward Kevin Love will make his return from a bruised left thigh. Love hurt his thigh last Friday in the third quarter during the Cavs' loss to the Boston Celtics and did not return. He subsequently missed Saturday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Timofey Mozgov started in Love's place next to Tristan Thompson. Matthew Dellavedova, however, will not play tonight and has already been ruled...

Kobe Bryant's latest farewell stop brings fond memories

Shaquille O'Neal used to like Kobe Bryant. He called him the world's best player here in 2000, and it was entirely sincere. Bryant's most recent stop on his goodbye tour was where he came of age in the NBA Finals. He remembered it fondly Monday before the Lakers lost to the Indiana Pacers, 89-87....

Monday Musings: Signs of Optimism

The Timberwolves have strung together two impressive wins over the Bulls and Clippers and will try to continue their streak tonight against the New Orleans Pelicans. The Timberwolves have a chance tonight to match their longest winning streak of the season at 3 games, which previously took place from November 23-27 during the early 8-8 start. That feels like an entire lifetime ago at this point and if the Wolves were able to pull out a win tonight it would be a great start to potentially turning a corner for the rest of the season. The game against the Pelicans is also the second to last...

Are the Celtics doing too well to make a trade?

The price of success or an opportunity to sell high? The Celtics are surging, having won 9 of their last 10 games including an upset win over the Cleveland Cavs.  As such they are getting more respect in the various "power polls" around the web. These are purely for fun but they do give a feel for where the team stacks up to the rest of the league - at least in the media's eyes. There was one theme that I saw repeated a couple times and I wanted to comment on it.  It seems that some believe that the team's success might dissuade them from making a trade next week that could potentially...

Lakers vs. Pacers Final Score: Kobe Bryant's late-game heroics fall short in 89-87 loss

Kobe Bryant gave the Lakers a late lead, but Paul George finished off the purple and gold. The Los Angeles Lakers kept the final score close in a 89-87 loss, but they looked out of sorts most of the night against the Indiana Pacers. Kobe Bryant took over in the fourth quarter, scoring 11 straight points for the Lakers while draining three three-pointers in a row to give the Lakers the lead. The crowd roared behind every shot, but it was too much Paul George down the stretch while the Lakers struggled to execute their offense through the final possessions. The Lakers shot just 29 percent...
