After talking with Allen and our medical staff, we feel that resting (him) for...

After playing only 18 minutes in Tuesday's 79-73 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, he openly voiced his frustration. Eighteen minutes, c'mon, man, the volatile Iverson said. I can play 18 minutes with my eyes closed, with a...

Mike Conley's 20 points Sunday led the Memphis Grizzlies' 89-84 win over the injury-depleted Detroit Pistons. Memphis built a commanding 57-40 halftime lead, and was able to play just enough defense after Antonio McDyess's jumper put Detroit ahead 78-77 with 5:16 left. Rudy Gay added 15 points with five rebounds and former Piston Darko Milicic scored 12 with 11 rebounds. Marc Gasol scored 11 with seven rebounds and four assists, and Conley overcame seven turnovers by adding three rebounds and...

The Pistons ended the opening quarter on a 20-4 run that gave them a 33-16 lead. The game was never in doubt over the final three periods. Tayshaun Prince and Jason Maxiell added 16 each for the Pistons, winners of four in a row. That streak followed an eight-game losing skid -- Detroit's longest in 14 years. Golden State, losers of six out of eight,...
