D-Will inching closer to return

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams went through a full practice Sunday and is being listed as questionable for Monday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers. “I feel pretty good,” Williams said. “I guess it’s just how I feel tomorrow when I wake up.” With snow coming into the area, the Nets have canceled Monday's shootaround. Williams has missed the past 11 games due to a rib cartilage fracture.

The Nets need Deron Williams back

Note: This article was written before Friday night's game against the Toronto Raptors. The Nets need Deron Williams back, badly. The max-contract point guard has fallen way short of expectations during his tenure in Brooklyn, but he is still an important cog on this team and needs to be on the floor....

Knicks Defeat Lakers 92-80 to Capture Franchise's First Super Bowl

In surely one of the ugliest NBA games played this year, the Knicks "triumphed" over the outgunned Lakers to win the Super Bowl behind Carmelo Anthony's 31 points. The Knicks led 32-19 after a first quarter in which they shot 56% from the field to the Lakers 25%. Ryan Kelly did not look as overmatched initially as one would expect guarding a noticeably disinterested Carmelo Anthony, but Melo still scored 6 points with 2 assists. Fellow New York starters Langston Galloway, Jason Smith, and Jose Calderon gave him some help by only missing 3 of their 12 shots. Yes those are all real NBA...

Miami Heat 83, Boston Celtics 75

Miami led the Celtics from wire-to-wire in a Super Bowl Sunday showdown at TD Garden. Admittedly, most Bostonians' minds were elsewhere this Super Bowl Sunday. The Patriots are looking to claim their fourth NFL title, and their first in the 10 years since a Super Bowl XXXIX 24-21 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Still, the Celtics sat just 2 1/2 games out of the eighth Eastern Conference playoff spot coming in. The 20-26 Heat came into the TD Garden early this afternoon with little to show for over their last seven days. After a 96-84 win over the Chicago Bulls last Sunday, the Heat...

Notebook: Prince's hip; Bradley's thumb

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics swingman Tayshaun Prince did not play in Sunday's game due to a lingering hip flexor. Prince said he tried to loosen up pregame, but informed coach Brad Stevens right before tip-off that he wouldn't be available. The Celtics missed his veteran presence while enduring an 83-75 loss to the visiting Miami Heat on Sunday at TD Garden. "I think he's had a little bit of an issue in the last few days, but it hasn't been anything where he thought it would prohibit him from playing," said Stevens.

2014-15 Season game 47: Oklahoma City Thunder vs Memphis Grizzlies full coverage

The morale in Oklahoma City couldn't be lower. Kevin Durant has missed the past two games with a sprained big toe injury. The Thunder have gone 1-1 without their star, including an embarrassing loss to the New York Knicks. Many fans are calling for more roster changes, citing the Thunder's collectively terrible three point percentages. Other fans are calling for the firing of Coach Brooks, whose worthiness has been debated for as long as he's been in the spotlight. Thus, a win tonight against the extremely strong Memphis Grizzlies would do wonders for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Of course,...

Five things we learned about the Rockets in Saturday’s loss to the Pistons

Five things we learned in the Rockets’ 114-101 loss at Detroit on Saturday: 1. If Dwight Howard’s importance to the Rockets was somehow unclear when his scoring dipped in January, the Rockets demonstrated how badly he is missed. Howard has been the foundation of their defense. Without him inside, the Pistons easily moved into the […]

Wizards eager to get more out of second units, especially against East’s top teams

When John Wall, wounded and weakened, exited for his customary breather at the end of the first quarter Saturday night, the Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors were tied at 28. Wall would sit for four minutes and 45 seconds. In that brief span the Wizards managed to engineer a deficit so vast that even a furious fourth-quarter rally wouldn’t be enough in a 120-116 overtime loss. Read full article >>
