Kelenna Azubuike and Nazr Mohammed will be at the game tonight at 9:30 on TNT, they might play

Kelenna Azubuike did not play in Game 1 of the Mavericks’ first round playoff game against the Fighting Mohammed’s. We had hoped Azubuike would intimidate his head coach, Rick Carlisle, into playing him, but he’s just too nice. Sometimes you have to take things into your own hands and that’s why we’re moving to plan …

John Wall expects Wizards to compete for playoff spot next year

From The Washington Times… “You want to be in the playoffs,” Wall said. “Everybody doesn’t have the opportunity to come right out of the gates and go to the playoffs their first or second year, it takes time. But by your third or fourth year, you at least got to be in the playoffs.” There …

MLive.com’s final season grades… Brandon Knight, B-minus Take the rookie factor more into account and this grade could have been a little better. He had some tough run-ins with elite point guards, which surprised no one. He also frequently fared better in rematches than first matches, which pleased plenty. He led all NBA rookies in …

Should the Sixers start Jodie Meeks for Game 2?

(Take a seat Evan Turner) From the Liberty Ballers… Doug Collins, to my knowledge, loves three things: Tony Battie, late night texting, and juggling his starting lineup. If the Game One loss over the Bulls gave us anything worthwhile, it was a very good game out of Evan Turner. The efficient, controlled 29 minutes from …

Rajon Rondo hopes to avoid suspension

From The Celtics Blog… Tempers flare, heat of the battle, blah blah blah. It was stupid to go after the ref like that and it was stupid to bump him. I’m not sure if I believe he “tripped” or not, but even if he did, it was stupid and selfish to go after the ref …

The decision paid off in a major way, as the Clippers got the huge come-from-behind victory over the Grizzlies tonight, 99-98. The Clippers connected on …
