Legendary Nets and Knicks point guard Jason Kidd has retired from the NBA after a storied 19-year career.
A perilous eight-game swing west of Brooklyn? Forget those warnings of impending doom from both critics and fans — like me.
Dirk Nowitzki and former Nets guard Vince Carter each scored 20 points, and the Dallas Mavericks avoided another late collapse by holding off Brooklyn 98-90 on Friday night.
The Knicks’ hot start on the court is paying dividends for the franchise’s merchandise sector. The league released its latest sales-rankings list on Wednesday, with the Knicks leading the team-sales category for the first time since December 2004.
For better or for worse, the Knicks’ window to win is now and it’s up to Carmelo Anthony to lead them.
I want to take a moment and unplug the NBA playoffs from reality.
The Dallas Mavericks didn’t even get to enjoy their first NBA title for an entire year.
Kevin Durant finally found his postseason shooting touch, and the Thunder never trailed on the way to a 95-79 victory over the Mavericks on Thursday night.
Russell Westbrook scored 29 points, Kevin Durant added 26 in an off-shooting performance and the Oklahoma City Thunder clawed out a 102-99 victory over defending champion Dallas on Monday night to take a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series.
Kevin Durant was determined to not let the Oklahoma City Thunder lose another playoff game at home to Dallas.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 28 points and bailed out the Mavericks after they lost the lead following a 7 1/2-minute scoreless stretch in the fourth quarter, and Dallas beat the New York Knicks 95-85 on Tuesday night.
Linsanity lives! And now the championship talk begins.
Jeremy Lin scored 28 points and added a career-high 14 assists as the Knicks took down the defending champion Mavericks, 104-97.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat couldn’t keep the Dallas Mavericks from winning the most recent NBA championship. They did a nice job, however, of getting the Mavs’ title defense off to an ugly start.
While we should focus on how good Dallas was (as opposed to how bad LeBron James was), it’s hard to listen to LeBron talk and not root against the guy.
