    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    This weekend, Houston is the center of the NBA universe. It is where we got see some great dunks and long range sniping on Saturday night and where we’ll see the greatest players on the planet play in their annual mid-season exhibition. It’s also the home of the Rockets who are having a nice season…

  2. Kenneth Faried’s Rising Stars MVP highlights (Video)

    Feb 16, 2013, 1:29 PM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge 2013

    Kenneth Faried claimed the MVP of the Rising Stars game by playing his normal game. He played hard, attacked the rim for some tremendous finishes, and worked the glass with the relentless energy he shows during every game he laces up his sneakers for. Just as the video above shows. Even in the slow motion…

  3. Report: Raptors can trade Bargnani for Boozer “whenever they want”

    Feb 15, 2013, 1:30 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Boozer reacts after being called for a foul in their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    The Bulls have been an over-performing, scrappy team this year. Though Derrick Rose has missed every game rehabilitating his surgically repaired knee and the team has suffered other injuries to key players like Luol Deng and Joakim Noah that’s forced them out of action for stretches, the Bulls currently possess the East’s 5th best record…

  4. The Extra Pass: Warriors stumbling into the All-Star break

    Feb 13, 2013, 2:35 PM EST

    David Lee, Stephen Curry

    The Extra Pass is a column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at what has gone wrong with the Golden State Warriors lately. There has been no bigger darling of the first half of the NBA season than the Golden State Warriors. Pegged…

  5. Three Stars of the Night: Almost Perfect

    Feb 5, 2013, 12:26 AM EST

    Heat's James drives against Bobcats' Mullens, Gordon and Walker in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    You never know when it’s going to be one of those nights. You know, when regardless of what you do the shots just fall. It doesn’t matter if it’s a twisting drive to the rim, a deep three pointer, or your standard pull up from the elbow. Some nights the rim just seems bigger. Tonight,…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: All Purpose Big Man Edition

    Jan 29, 2013, 12:40 AM EST

    Marc Gasol, Darrell Arthur

    Defense. Rebounding. Points in the paint. Toughness. When you think of an NBA big man, these are likely the qualities you’re looking for. You want the guy who can get your team baskets close to the rim, stop the other team from doing the same, and do it all while giving your team a sense…

  7. The Lakers are right on schedule, but is it too late?

    Jan 18, 2013, 2:10 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash

    Picture this: Steve Nash dribbles up court, surveying the floor. As he crosses half court, he maneuvers towards the three point line. Once there, Dwight Howard comes and sets a pick and rolls hard to the basket but doesn’t get the ball. Nash probes the defense, dribbling into the paint and underneath the hoop, spotting…

  8. Three Stars of the Night: LeBron’s milestones steal the night

    Jan 17, 2013, 2:20 AM EST

    Miami Heat LeBron James looks on during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland

    Every night in the NBA offers some sort of impressive performance. Three Stars attempts to filter through them and give you, the reader, a chance to know who did what the best. But on some nights, it’s about more than one game’s worth of work that makes up a performance. Tonight is one such night.…

  9. The Heat clamp down on defense, demolish the Warriors

    Jan 17, 2013, 1:45 AM EST

    Miami Heat LeBron James drives against Golden State Warriors David Lee during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    On a night where Stephen Curry was forced to sit out due to an injured ankle, the Heat came out aggressive on both sides of the ball and blitzed the Warriors 92-75. The score, though, doesn’t really do the domination that occurred in this game justice. The Heat came out early and decided to set…

  10. Kevin Durant throws it down over the Suns (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:40 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, P.J. Tucker

    As the marketing campaign has been telling us, KD is not nice. The best part of this play by Kevin Durant is obviously the finish over a helpless Marcin Gortat, but I was almost as impressed by how he put himself in position to throw it down in the first place. Working in isolation against…

  11. Video: Metta World Peace with the unusual “and-1″

    Jan 14, 2013, 1:26 PM EST

    Metta World Peace

    Metta World Peace in the open court never really disappoints from an entertainment standpoint. He’s just as liable to dribble the ball off his leg or short arm a lay-in as he is to make a play that gets the crowd on their feet. Last night, in the Lakers’ much needed win over the Cavs,…

  12. Deron Williams playing better in games by skipping practices

    Jan 14, 2013, 1:13 PM EST

    Deron Williams, Goran Dragic

    The Nets’ move to Brooklyn hasn’t been that kind to Deron Williams. In posting stats that represent some of the worst of his career, the face of the franchise with the new max contract simply hasn’t been playing up to his normal standards and it’s been one of the main reasons the Nets hadn’t been…

  13. Spurs avoid total meltdown, hand Lakers their 5th straight loss

    Jan 10, 2013, 12:27 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili

    In what’s been a familiar site lately, the Lakers lost a game on Wednesday night, this time to the Spurs 108-105. The loss drops them to 15-20 on the season and represents another shovel of dirt on their playoff chances in what’s been their most disappointing season…maybe ever. The win gave the Spurs their 15th…

  14. Report: Antawn Jamison is frustrated by lack of playing time, seeks explanation

    Dec 29, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison, Lamar Odom

    Antawn Jamison came to the Lakers to play an important role in the pursuit of winning an NBA championship. He took less money — signing for the minimum — because he saw the Lakers as his best shot to be a key contributor on a winning team after toiling on the hapless Cavs for the…

  15. Three Stars of the Night: No conscience edition

    Dec 19, 2012, 2:14 AM EST

    Brandon Jennings

    Every team has at least one of them. You know, the guy that has no conscience and won’t stop taking shots regardless of the circumstance. When things are going bad, these guys will shoot you out of a game with nary a second thought. But when they have it going and start to hit them,…

  16. Report: Manu Ginobili (among others) to sit out against Thunder

    Dec 17, 2012, 1:31 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili

    The Spurs visit the Thunder tonight in a rematch of the thrilling Western Conference Finals from last spring. The Thunder come into the game having won their last 10 games and in possession of the conference’s best record. The Spurs enter the game winning six of their last eight games and have the conference’s second…

  17. Report: Pau Gasol to return to practice, return targeted for Tuesday

    Dec 17, 2012, 12:48 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have been a punching bag through the first quarter of the season, taking beatings on the court in the form of losses and off the court in terms of media critiques. Injuries have been a big part of  their downfall with Steve Nash only playing in six quarters, Steve Blake also missing multiple…

  18. Report: Steve Nash out at least another two weeks, nerve irritation keeping him sidelined

    Dec 11, 2012, 2:35 AM EST

    Steve Nash

    Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Steve Nash is still about two weeks away from returning to the Lakers. Nash, still recovering from a small fracture in his fibula is progressing with his rehab, but is still not ready to join the team, according to David Leon Moore of USA Today: D’Antoni speculated…

  19. Three Stars: All Point Guard Edition

    Dec 11, 2012, 1:15 AM EST

    Tony Parker,  Jeremy Lin

    These are the guys with the ball in their hands on nearly every possession. They’re asked to get their teammates going while also finding ways to put the ball in the basket themselves. They’re not always successful, but tonight they certainly were as all three of these guys were dishing out dimes and sinking shots…

  20. Video: LeBron skies for the alley-oop dunk

    Dec 11, 2012, 1:11 AM EST

    LeBron James

    Some plays, no matter how often they happen, still make you say wow. LeBron James catching a lob and finishing with his torso above the rim is one such play. The Heat haven’t gotten as many of these types of plays this year due to fewer forced turnovers, but no team is better at changing…

  21. Report: Pau Gasol to sit out against the Thunder

    Dec 7, 2012, 1:08 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    After sitting out the first two games of the Lakers three game road trip, there was a sliver of hope that he might try to play Friday night against the Thunder. The thought was that the extra rest may help his knees feel good enough to give it a go in what is certainly a…

  22. Video: Dwight Howard caps off his big night with a three pointer

    Dec 1, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Andrew Bynum is so jealous. When Bynum was with the Lakers his attempted three pointer against the Warriors landed him on the bench. Against the Nuggets, Dwight Howard took a three and everyone loved him for it. I guess that’s what happens when yours goes in. Howard capped off his 28 point, 20 rebound night with…

  23. Video: Danilo Gallinari throws it down on the Lakers

    Dec 1, 2012, 2:29 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari celebrates a score past the Toronto Raptors in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Denver

    One of the things that makes Danilo Gallinari such an intriguing player is his multi-faceted game at a player his size. Though he’s known as a shooter, Gallo is also a good defender and has a better than advertised off the dribble game where he can finish in the paint. This is something the Lakers…

  24. Three Stars of the Night: Name Brand Edition

    Nov 28, 2012, 2:06 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    These are the guys you pay to come see. The guys whose jerseys are littered throughout the stands. The guys who will be in the all-star game come February. Every night a team’s star is supposed to step up big and help his team to victory. Tonight, our three stars represent that to the fullest.…

  25. Report: Lakers’ Nash and Blake ruled out for Pacers game

    Nov 26, 2012, 4:07 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    There was some optimism (or at least some wishful thinking from Lakers’ fans) that Steve Nash, Steve Blake, or both would be healthy enough to play Tuesday against the Pacers. Well, it looks like Mike D’Antoni will go (at least) another game without his top two signal callers. Both Nash and Blake have already been…
