LA Clippers’ Steve Ballmer excited for Kawhi Leonard’s expected return, says ‘sky is the limit’ for team

LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer raised his hands up and started rocking back and forth as he started to think about the idea of a healthy Kawhi Leonard returning this upcoming season. After not having Leonard all of last season while he recovered from a torn right ACL, Ballmer stated Tuesday he is “really excited” about the Clippers, suggesting they should be staring at a deep postseason run if they can stay healthy for an entire regular season and postseason for once. “I think the sky is the limit for our team,” he said. “It’ll be our effort, our energy. Of course, you […]

Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry says he’s ‘going to play’ in Game 4 despite unspecified injury

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry is expected to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday. Curry’s status was up in the air after he suffered an injury late in the fourth quarter of Game 3 when Boston Celtics forward Al Horford rolled on Curry’s leg as the two dove for a loose ball. Curry lay on the floor for a few minutes, yelling in pain, before getting up with a limp. He was still walking gingerly about an hour and a half after the game when he entered and exited the news conference room. But on Thursday, Curry appeared to be walking just […]

Boston Celtics’ Marcus Smart (midfoot sprain) probable and Al Horford (health and safety protocols) doubtful for Game 2 against Miami Heat

The Boston Celtics stated Marcus Smart is probable to play in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals Thursday night with a right midfoot sprain, and Al Horford is doubtful as he is still in the NBA’s health and safety protocols. Both players missed Boston’s Game 1 loss Tuesday versus the Miami Heat. Smart had been questionable to play all day leading up to the game after taking a hard fall in Boston’s Game 7 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference semifinals that allowed them to advance to reach the East finals for a fourth time in six years. Horford’s absence, however, came as a […]

Klay Thompson has ‘special’ Game 6 performance to lead Golden State Warriors back to Western Conference finals

Kevon Looney reached over Steve Adams to snag the long rebound off Stephen Curry’s missed 3-point attempt. He tossed the ball a few feet to his right to Klay Thompson. In one fluid motion, Thompson caught and shot the ball, good for a 28-foot 3-pointer. That was the shot that brought the Warriors to their 110-96 Game 6 victory over the Grizzlies, sending them back to the Western Conference finals for the first time since 2019. “It’s special,” Thompson said. “I mean, everything we’ve been through the last few years, it’s really an incredible opportunity.” Thompson has a special relationship with Game 6s […]

Brandon Ingram says he’ll be OK after jamming fingers in New Orleans Pelicans’ Game 5 loss to Phoenix Suns

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram came to Tuesday night’s postgame news conference with his right ring and pinkie fingers taped up in black athletic tape, but he insisted he’ll be good to go for Game 6 on Thursday. “It’s fine,” Ingram stated following the Pelicans’ 112-97 loss to the Phoenix Suns. “It got a little banged up during the game, but I’ll be all right.” With 4:07 left, Ingram drove baseline and was met at the rim by Suns center Deandre Ayton. Ingram crashed to the floor and landed on his backside but also jammed his two fingers in the process. On the ensuing […]

No timetable on return of Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Doncic as MRI confirms left calf strain

An MRI on Monday confirmed that Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic suffered a left calf strain in the regular-season finale, the team revealed. No timetable has been set for Doncic’s recovery, but the Mavs have not ruled him out for Saturday afternoon’s Game 1 versus the Utah Jazz. “If he’s able to go out and put on his shoes, then he’s going to go,” coach Jason Kidd said after Tuesday’s practice, when Doncic received treatment. “If he can’t, we’re not going to put him in a situation to jeopardize it and make things worse.” Spencer Dinwiddie will start if Doncic is not available. Dinwiddie has averaged 15.8 […]

Norman Powell leads Clippers to win in return from injury, says LA can be ‘really dangerous’ in postseason

After scoring a game-high 24 points in his first outing alongside Paul George, Norman Powell thinks the LA Clippers can be a potential headache for adversaries if they get out of the play-in next week. Powell returned Wednesday after missing nearly two months because of a fractured bone in his left foot and hit his first six shots to help the Clippers build a 39-point lead before holding on for a 113-109 victory over the Phoenix Suns at Crypto.com Arena. His return came just three matches before the Clippers are set to play in next week’s play-in as the eighth-placed team in the West. “I think we can be […]

Lopez scores 28, Bucks beat Bulls 127-106 to clinch Central

Brook Lopez scored a season-high 28 points and the Milwaukee Bucks overcame a rather quiet performance from Giannis Antetokounmpo to clinch their fourth straight Central Division championship with a 127-106 triumph over the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night. The defending NBA champion Bucks haven’t been on a run like this since Don Nelson’s teams won seven successive division titles in the 1980s. They took control early and came away with an easy win even though DeMar DeRozan scored 40 for Chicago. Antetokounmpo, trying to overtake LeBron James and Joel Embiid in a tight race for his first scoring title, concluded with 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. But the two-time MVP started […]

Grizzlies edge Spurs 112-111, clinch No. 2 seed in West

Tyus Jones scored 25 points and the Memphis Grizzlies edged the San Antonio Spurs 112-111 on Wednesday night to capture the Southwest Division title and clinch the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference. The Grizzlies claimed their first division title in franchise history and accomplished the feat with All-Star point guard Ja Morant watching from the sidelines. “Definitely a big milestone,” Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins said. “I told the group, a special accomplishment for a special group, but we’ve got more work to do.” Memphis never trailed, even as Morant missed his sixth consecutive game with a sore right knee. The Grizzlies improved to 19-2 without […]
