James Harden gets 1-game suspension for kicking LeBron James

The All-Stars and Olympic teammates became tangled in the third quarter of Houston’s 105-103 overtime victory over Cleveland on Sunday, and Harden fell back to the court, then kicked his foot up into James. Harden was given a flagrant-1 foul for the play, which the league upgraded Monday to a flagrant-2, which would have been an automatic ejection if called at the time. An angry James said after the game that Harden’s kick was “not a basketball play” and that the league would probably look at it. Harden, the NBA’s leading scorer and a top MVP candidate, won’t play when the...

Redick details double technicals with Saunders

With about a minute left in the Los Angeles Clippers' 110-105 win Monday over the Timberwolves, J.J. Redick and Flip Saunders received double technical fouls. Here's what Redick had to say after the game: "I think there was a foul (on Kevin Garnett) on the play. I was kind of walking to get to my spot on free-throw line, and Flip was on the court -- I'm not sure why he was on the court. He was yelling and stuff, and I said (to an official), 'Get him off the court.' And Flip turned to me and said, 'Man, shut […] The post Redick details double technicals with Saunders appeared first on...

The Wizards made the right decision in letting Trevor Ariza walk in free agency

In light of Washington's recent slump, there's been much made of the front office's decision to let Trevor Ariza walk in free agency, but it was still the right move. Washington's recent slide, coupled with Rasual Butler's nasty regression and Paul Pierce's slumping play has sparked some revisionist history from this fanbase in regards to the handling of Trevor Ariza's free agency. The short of it: The Wizards badly miss Ariza on both ends of the floor, and were wrong in letting him walk in free agency. This seems to overshadow the fact that the Wizards did offer Ariza a contract well...

Warriors vs. Nets final score: Jarrett Jack hits game-winner in Brooklyn's 110-108 win

An exhausted Warriors squad ends their Eastern Conference road trip with a loss in Brooklyn. Jarrett Jack hit a jumper with 1.1 seconds left to lift the Brooklyn Nets to a 110-108 win over the Golden State Warriors, negating a spectacular fourth quarter by former teammate Stephen Curry. Curry scored 18 of his game-high tying 26 points in the fourth quarter to help the Warriors fight their way back to a tie game with under a minute left. But a late turnover by Andrew Bogut set up an all-too-familiar #ISOJack possession for the game-winner. It was an unfortunate win to what started off as an...
