Odds aren't looking great for Slovenian star Luka Doncic or Duke's Marvin Bagley, either. But the No. 4 pick? We'll take it. No, despite having a 19.9 percent chance of winning the...

By CLAY BAILEY, Associated Press Sacramento Kings guard Bogdan Bogdanovic acknowledged he didn't have a very good night against the Memphis Grizzlies. Until the game's closing seconds.

By BRIAN HALL, Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jeff Teague didn't mince words. The Minnesota Timberwolves' 101-93 loss to the lowly Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night was devastating. "This is the worst loss, by far," Teague said. "This was a must-win for us. Every game down the stretch is a must-win. Against a...
  By CLAY BAILEY, Associated Press Brandon Jennings feels a sense of urgency in trying to prove he belongs back in the NBA after signing a 10-day contract with the Milwaukee Bucks. Jennings, who joined the team on Sunday, took a huge step in that direction Monday night, finishing with 16 points,...
