  • Nowitzki announces retirement after final home game for Mavs

    Dirk Nowitzki cried near midcourt when the second quarter was about to resume. The Dallas Mavericks star nearly jumped for joy with a huge smile on his face after a rare dunk prompted thunderous applause from a crowd celebrating the final home game of his record 21st season with the same franchise. And then after Larry Bird joked during a postgame ceremony that he was '15 when Dirk came into the league and now I'm 62,' Nowitzki let fly with a realization the 40-year-old said he reached in recent days.

  • Decisions looming for Suns after difficult season

    Excitement surrounding No. 1 overall draft pick Deandre Ayton and young star Devin Booker fizzled quickly, and most of the supporting cast of veterans was traded away. In their place came some players, most notably forward Kelly Oubre Jr., who made an impact. Now the Suns have questions about the look of their front office next season - they're searching for a new general manager but could structure the management in a different way - and whether Igor Kokoskov will return as head coach after guiding the team to a Western Conference-worst 19-63 record.

  • Mavs' Nowitzki makes retirement official

    Dirk Nowitzki was mum all season on his future plans but after a rousing performance in the Dallas Mavericks' home finale Tuesday, the star finally announced the decision everyone expected. Nowitzki made his much-anticipated retirement announcement after delivering a season-high 30-point performance, with five 3-pointers, against the Suns. Nowitzki's final season didn't actually begin until mid-December thanks to a longer-than-expected recovery from ankle surgery.

  • Report: Former Hornets, Pelicans GM Jeff Bower may get “high ranking” job with Suns

    Devin Booker is legit (don't believe the haters), Deandre Ayton has potential, Kelly Oubre Jr. appears a good fit, guys like T.J. Warren and Josh Jackson might have roles — but the team needs a direction and a better-rounded roster. After firing GM Ryan McDonough at an odd time, then replacing him with an odder combo of people, Suns owner Robert Sarver is looking for the guy to give his team that direction. Jeff Bower may be that guy, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

  • Jackson nets 35 points, Suns beat Pelicans in overtime

    The short-handed Phoenix Suns closed out their home season with a victory Friday and looked toward their final two games, which they need to win to match last year's 21 wins. Josh Jackson scored eight of his season-high 35 points in overtime, and Phoenix rallied from 15 points down in the third quarter to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 133-126 Friday night in a matchup of teams missing plenty of players. Jackson swished a 28-foot 3-pointer with 1:23 left in the extra period, his fifth of the game, to seal the Suns' victory in their home regular-season finale.

  • Warriors takeaways: What we learned in dominant 108-90 win over Lakers

    Throughout the season, the Golden State Warriors have made a habit of laying an egg after a big win, preferring complacency over sustained effort. That was not the case Thursday night, as the Warriors overwhelmed the undermanned Lakers 108-90 at Staples Center in a game they dominated from the opening tip. With the win, the Warriors (55-24) maintained their two-game lead atop the Western Conference with four games to go.
