  • Rose held to 2 points in U.S. win Aug 31, 2014 5:17 PM
    BILBAO, Spain — Kenneth Faried scored 22 points, Anthony Davis all of his 19 in the second half, and the U.S. rebounded from a rare deficit at halftime to beat Turkey 98-77 on Sunday in the Basketball World Cup. A night after beating Finland by 59 in its biggest rout ever while using NBA players in the former world championship, the Americans couldn’t take control against Turkey until early in the fourth quarter. They trailed 40-35 at halftime and Turkey led by six early in the third before the Americans could finally get the game into the quicker tempo they prefer and pull away to win the rematch of the 2010 gold-medal game in Istanbul. The Bulls’ Derrick Rose showed his timing still isn’t back after a nearly two-year absence, missing both shots, turning it over twice and not getting an assist. Rose didn’t get back into the game until the U.S. had opened the big fourth-quarter lead. He finished with 2 points. It was a much tougher game than expected after the Americans hammered Finland 114-55 while Turkey was being outplayed for most of its opener by New Zealand before pulling out the victory. James Harden added 14 points for the U.S. It was tied at 59 with 3:10 left in the third before the Americans closed the period with a 7-1 burst to lead 66-60 after Faried’s basket. The U.S. then ran off 10 in a row to open the fourth and open a 76-60 cushion. The Americans haven’t lost since the semifinals of the 2006 world championship and outside of their victories over Spain in the last two Olympic gold-medal games, haven’t been in danger much since then. But they needed a long time to start looking like the team that is so considered the tournament favorite by so many. It was 16-all after one, and Turkey controlled the tempo in the second quarter, getting to the foul line against a U.S. team that showed moments of frustration with the pace and some calls that went against them. Baris Hersek and Emir Preldzic made consecutive 3-pointers late in the half to give Turkey a 38-32 lead, and it was 40-35 when the teams went to the locker room. Unable to force the turnovers or missed shots to get their transition game going, the Americans looked ordinary in the halfcourt. Davis, who scored 17 points in the opener and had been the Americans’ best player this summer, was scoreless with one rebounds in the half, playing just 10 ½ minutes while picking up two fouls. The Americans are off Monday before continuing pool play Tuesday against winless New Zealand.

     
  • Shelly Sterling talks about husband, Clippers sale Aug 29, 2014 9:44 AM
    When Shelly Sterling was approached by former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer about buying the Los Angeles Clippers, the wife of disgraced team owner Donald Sterling did not know who Ballmer was.

In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, Shelly Sterling offered details of how she negotiated one of the richest deals in sports after her husband’s racist rant to a girlfriend became public, prompting the NBA to ban him for life and decree he give up the team.

  • U.S. beat Slovenia in basketball exhibition, Rose has 3 points Aug 26, 2014 7:23 PM
    Mike Krzyzewski’s big men had barely finished pushing around Slovenia when he was asked how they would match up with Spain’s imposing frontcourt. “I’m not going to compare. I haven’t seen Spain play,” Krzyzewski said. “If we play Spain, it’s a long way away. So I’m just concentrating on U.S. and trying to get better.”

     
  • First female takes over NBA players union Aug 24, 2014 6:55 AM
    On Sept. 15, Michele Roberts will officially become the first woman to lead the NBA Players Association, or any major North American professional sports union for that matter.

  • Imrem: D-Rose, Anthony Davis & Jabari Parker. Why not? Aug 18, 2014 5:46 AM
    A Bulls fan's hoop dream might be that there is a hoop dream team out there waiting patiently to happen. How does a combination of Derrick Rose, Anthony Davis and Jabari Parker sound to you? A couple of the hang-ups are that Rose will have to do some serious recruiting, which he has been reluctant to do, and the basketball triplets can't come together for a while anyway because of contractual obligations under NBA rules.
