Hey, Memphis. How does it feel to be part of a real, honest-to-goodness playoff series? Fun, isn’t it?
The San Antonio Spurs absolutely owned the local television market ratings game this season. But sure Sacramento, move to Los Angeles because the television deal is key.
If Bryan Colangelo is out in Toronto, look for 74-year-old Wayne Embry to be in for the short term.
Mitch Richmond talking about the Kings relocation plans.
The latest episode of The LeBrons is out. And it’s all yours.
The Knicks and Magic are not getting a lot of help from their role players.
Hey, at least people are talking about the Indiana Pacers now in Indiana.
Andrew Bogut had his follow up elbow surgery. His return remains the real key to everything in Milwaukee.
Tim Donaghy talking NBA playoff officiating.
Ray Allen talking about what the Celtics need to do to win their series.
Would the Magic have been better off keeping Rashard Lewis?
Don Nelson proving one of the great truths of our time — life in Maui doesn’t suck.
The Suns’ Zabian Dowdell and referee Ken Mauer each got an undisclosed fine from the league for their little war of words on the court.
The Cavaliers were ready for their game against the Raptors tonight, and Toronto’s dance team wasn’t going to change that.
The last time I remember something like this happening, Grizzlies guard Tony Allen walked through the Warriors’ kid dancers. This video doesn’t show got the Cavaliers got to that point, but they might have the defense of being there first. Allen definitely didn’t have that.
Gary Neal made a jumper with 10:12 remaining in tonight’s Wizards-Hornets game.
That was Washington’s last basket.
Jared Dudley made a pair of free throws on the Wizards next possession, and Neal added two more free throws with 23 seconds left.
And that was all the Wizards scoring in the quarter.
Washington, which entered the final period up seven, lost 101-87 after its 1-for-20 final-period shooting.
The six fourth-quarter points were the fewest by an NBA team in a quarter since Cavaliers scored six third-quarter points in a Jan. 26, 2014 loss to the Suns. Last time a team scored so few in a fourth quarter: Nov. 13, 2012, when the Raptors had five against the Pacers.
At least Neal’s late free throws spared the Wizards further shame. Nobody has scored four or fewer points in a quarter since the Warriors managed just two in a Feb. 8, 2004 loss to the Raptors.
As it stands, this is one of only 44 times in the shot clock era a team has scored so few points in a quarter.
After a rare period of on-court competence, the 76ers led the Celtics by five with two minutes left tonight.
Then, Philadelphia snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
The 76ers yielded a 9-0 run to close an 84-80 setback.
They’re now 0-16. Combined with their 0-10 finish to last season, that’s a 26-game losing streak – tied for longest in NBA history. Last year’s 76ers already shared the record.
Philadelphia is also in danger of the worst start to a season. The 2009-10 New Jersey Nets began 0-18, and last year’s 76ers won only one game sooner.
The 76ers will try to avoid the all-time longest streak at the Rockets on Friday. If that goes unsuccessfully, they’ll try to avoid matching the worst season start at the Grizzlies on Sunday. And if both fail, they could set the worst-start record against the Lakers on Tuesday.
76ers-Lakers – it’s shaping up to be a big one.
The Timberwolves didn’t select the meanest tweets about these players, but credit Karl-Anthony Towns, Tyus Jones, Shabazz Muhammad and Zach LaVine for being good sports.
