LeBron James playing his way back into Most Valuable Player race

LeBron James has missed more games this season than he has in his whole career, but he still might be the most valuable player in the NBA LeBron James has received a ton of scrutiny in his first season back with the Cleveland Cavaliers. From vines highlighting indifferent defense, to tepid endorsements of coach David Blatt and from persistent questions about a decline in athleticism and missed game action to reduced shooting percentages, it's been a bumpy ride. The Cavaliers have underwhelmed as a whole. Even after a six game winning streak, the Cavs stand just 25-20 and would be the fifth...

Lakers can’t handle James Harden as Rockets cruise in L.A.

LOS ANGELES – James Harden considered his options, somehow sifting through all this choices easily and quickly. He could drive to the rim or pull up. He could set up Rockets big men inside or fire passes to open teammates outside. He could do pretty much whatever he wished, challenged largely by at least some […]

Brandon Jennings out for season with full achilles tear

Swallow sadness. The fear that Brandon Jennings seriously injured his achilles in Saturday night's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks was fully realized on Sunday afternoon. According to The Detroit News, Jennings' MRI confirmed a full tear of his achilles. Jennings will miss the rest of the season. About a half hour before The Detroit News posted their story, Jennings gave away the results of his MRI with the following tweet: 6/9months. — BRANDON JENNINGS (@BrandonJennings) January 25, 2015 As has been pointed out, Kobe Bryant missed exactly eight months when he tore his achilles last...

Rockets reflect on latest Kobe Bryant injury

Rockets center Dwight Howard pointed to a wall in the Windward School gym where the words “Hall of Fame” celebrated the stars of Windward Wildcats athletic history. For a moment, however, they made a point. “I think that will be his legacy over there,” Howard said of former Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant. “’Hall of Fame.’ […]

Luol Deng tribute video for his return to the United Center

Above was the tribute video (via) to Luol Deng played in the first half of the Bulls loss to the Heat. Sunday was Deng's first game in the United Center as a visitor, having being traded midseason last year to the Cavs and then signing as a free agent with Miami in the offseason. It's nice. Deng was the man. And, unsurprisingly, still is. As you can see near the end, he was all business as the video played (during a timeout), though ABC showed during the telecast Deng embracing both ex-teammates and people working in the building. Deng spoke about that earlier in the weekend: Obviously, I...

Rockets Blow Past Lakers 99-87

The Lakers (again) made a late run against their opponents bench to make the deficit look respectable, but were strangled by Houston when it mattered to lose their eighth game in a row. Even without Dwight Howard, the Rockets mostly dominated the Lakers from start to finish, excepting an ultimately meaningless run by the purple and gold. The Lakers were unable to keep James Harden out of the paint in the first quarter (or the game for that matter), and the MVP candidate sliced up the Lakers defense to create threes and layups on the way to the Rockets doubling up on the Lakers, outscoring...

2014-15 Season game 44: Oklahoma City Thunder vs Cleveland Cavaliers full coverage

Dion Waiters appeared to be undergoing a bit of a renaissance just a week ago. As of last Sunday, Waiters had scored 15 points on four consecutive nights, posted a ton of steals, and seemed to be the answer to the Thunder's problems. But over the past week, Waiters has posted three straight sub-40% nights. It appears OKC fans might be in for a roller coaster ride when it comes to Dion, and Cleveland fans know that ride quite well. The first one and a half rocky seasons of Waiters' career took place in Ohio, and tonight will be his only return there this season. Will Cleveland fans...

Wiz Insider: Brian Shaw questions officials’ calls down the stretch in Nuggets’ loss to Wizards

DENVER — Somehow, someway, the Washington Wizards departed the Pepsi Center Sunday night with a win over the Denver Nuggets. They did it in large part to a couple missed free throws from Kenneth Faried at the end of regulation and Ty Lawson missing a gift-wrapped short jumper as overtime concluded.Read full article >>

Clippers extinguish Suns, 120-100

After it seemed like this game would come down to the wire, the Clippers used a 24-6 over the final 7:15 to distance themselves from the Suns and ultimately win by 20. The third meeting of the year between the Clippers and the Suns went about as expected for the first 24 minutes. It was a very hotly contested affair and then the Clippers took over in the third quarter and the game seemed to be almost over. But then the Suns came marching back and made it look like a great finish was in store. However, something interesting happened after that. A change was made and the Clippers flourished....
