  1. Monta Ellis officially loses his mind, compares himself to Dwyane Wade (VIDEO)

    Dec 30, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Monta Ellis, Tristan Thompson

    So the Bucks had a really great win against the Miami Heat last night. Monta Ellis had 14 points, 9 assists and 5 steals. Decent night. He shot a lot of shots, 18 to be exact, but that’s kind of what Ellis does. Well, he does that, and apparently he also gives ridiculously awesome interviews. And apparently…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: An Odd Scoring Battle

    Dec 30, 2012, 2:36 AM EST

    Brook Lopez, Kyrie Irving

    With 22 teams in action, you’d expect the usual suspects to be the big scorers of the night. Guys like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and James Harden. The guys battling Kobe Bryant for the scoring title. Those guys. Nope! Saturday was a little bit wild and crazy, and as a result we had Luis Scola…

  3. The Heat go cold at the wrong time, lose big to the Bucks

    Dec 30, 2012, 12:44 AM EST

    Bucks guard Jennings drives to the basket against Heat center Harrellson in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee

    Dwyane Wade returned, but Miami’s road woes traveled right along with him to Milwaukee. After losing to Detroit and the Will Bynum show last night, Miami collapsed in the fourth quarter tonight, falling to the Bucks, 104-85. Believe it or not, Miami appeared to be in firm control with a little over two minutes left…

  4. Brandon Roy issues statement regarding his future

    Dec 29, 2012, 8:16 PM EST

    Brandon Roy

    Earlier today, it was reported that Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy was considering retirement due to multiple setbacks with his troublesome knees. Roy was able to play in just five games this season before he was forced to undergo knee surgery. Roy has more medical issues than you can count, and the post-surgery setbacks were thought to…

  5. Chris Paul puts Gordon Hayward on skates (GIF)

    Dec 29, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers were down 19 to the Utah Jazz about halfway through the third period, and the 15-game winning streak looked like it was finally coming to a close. Utah was getting easy buckets inside, and the Clippers offense had turned to mush. But what do you know? Chris Paul suddenly snapped into attack mode,…

  6. Hornets guard Eric Gordon activated and expected to make debut

    Dec 29, 2012, 6:06 PM EST

    Eric Gordon

    After playing in just nine games last season and zero so far this year, Eric Gordon is finally set to return tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats. It’s been so long that it’s easy to forget just how good Gordon was with the Clippers two seasons ago. The stocky shooting guard averaged 22 points a game…

  7. Report: Andrea Bargnani “a lock to be moved”

    Dec 29, 2012, 5:00 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors Andrea Bargnani reacts after hitting a shot during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    It sounds like the Toronto Raptors are finally ready to give up on Andrea Bargnani. The first pick of the 2006 draft has displayed tantalizing potential and has put together short bursts of production throughout his seven seasons in Toronto, but his deficiencies as a defender and a rebounder have become increasingly more difficult to…

  8. Jarrett Jack throws Dorell Wright’s shoe into the crowd (VIDEO)

    Dec 29, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    Jarrett Jack, Jrue Holiday

    One of the nice things about Dwyane Wade‘s integrity coming into question this week was that we all got to happily remember the time Wade threw Mike Bibby’s shoe out of bounds. It was pure comedy gold. From Wade’s subtle toss not to arouse suspicion, to Bibby’s “come on bro” expression afterward, to Wade’s taunting backpedal…it’s just…

  9. Report: New York Knicks want Amar’e Stoudemire to come off the bench initially

    Dec 29, 2012, 11:01 AM EST

    New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire waits to take a foul shot against the New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Let’s add everything up. The Knicks are 21-9 without Amar’e Stoudemire this season. Carmelo Anthony is having the best year of his career and is a legitimate MVP candidate, all while playing most of his minutes at Stoudemire’s position. But now Stoudemire is close to returning, and the Knicks are finally presented with the potential…

  10. Kevin Durant goes coast-to-coast for the nasty jam (VIDEO)

    Dec 28, 2012, 3:14 PM EST

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    There is a lot of masked, subtle brilliance to what Kevin Durant does. It’s almost like drinking a fine wine — you have to know what flavors you’re looking for to appreciate it fully. Durant had one particular sequence against the Dallas Mavericks yesterday that embodies that. His block on Darren Collison wasn’t just a…

  11. Three Stars of the Night: Digging the long ball

    Dec 27, 2012, 1:07 AM EST

    James Harden

    How important is the long ball to the modern NBA offense? If the season ended today, four teams would place in the all-time top-40 for best team 3-point percentage – the Spurs, Knicks, Thunder and Heat. The best offensive teams seem to manufacture plenty of looks from behind the arc, and in that spirit, we’re…

  12. Jamal Crawford Calls His Own Shot, Delivers the Shake and Bake Crossover (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2012, 2:16 AM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    Following NBA players on Twitter is kind of an adventure. JaVale McGee retweets all his own tweets, Iman Shumpert talks almost solely in the third person…you get the idea. While some guys are hit and miss on that social media outlet, Jamal Crawford is usually hit. He answers fan questions, comments on articles that come…

  13. Three Stars of the Night: Buckets in Bunches

    Dec 24, 2012, 1:23 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    We had a pretty streaky Sunday around the league. Chris Paul and the Clippers extended their winning streak to 13 games, the longest seen this year in the NBA. Dirk Nowitzki returned for the Mavs, but the Spurs made it six straight at home in a laugher. The Knicks squeaked out a win over the…

  14. J.R. Smith throws down on poor Greg Stiemsma (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2012, 11:31 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Oh, Greg. Bless your heart. You were busy covering Tyson Chandler, and you saw J.R. Smith driving towards you. Your natural reaction was to run right back towards him. You’re a very tall dude. You wanted to stop him from getting to the rim. That’s good. That part was good. The end result, though? Baaaaad.…

  15. Kris Humphries gets benched, Nets get win

    Dec 23, 2012, 10:00 PM EST

    Kris Humphries

    It’s not everyday you see a player who makes $12 million dollars a year get a healthy DNP, but that’s where the Nets are at with Kris Humphries right now. Coming into Sunday’s matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers, the Nets were just 2-8 in their last ten games and on a serious slide down the…

  16. Shocker: Dirk Nowitzki makes his return against Spurs

    Dec 23, 2012, 7:11 PM EST

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    Wow. It was hard to see this one coming. Dirk Nowitzki has been sidelined all year after undergoing knee surgery roughly two months ago, but he’s active tonight against the San Antonio Spurs. Nowitzki put in his first full practice on Wednesday, and apparently the knee is feeling well enough to test it in his…

    Golden State Warriors' Ezeli dunks against Los Angeles Lakers in Oakland

    Did you catch the Lakers-Warriors game on Saturday night? It was close to perfect. The crowd in Oakland is always wonderful, but with the hated Lakers in town, they really stepped it up a notch. The on-court play was obviously great. The storylines were there. If you watched, regardless of who you were rooting for,…

  18. Mo Williams out indefinitely with right thumb injury

    Dec 23, 2012, 5:08 PM EST

    Mo Williams

    This may be the nudge the Utah Jazz needed. Thanks in large part to a brutal road schedule (17 of first 28 games on the road), Utah has been a bit disappointing to start the season. Ty Corbin has done a lot of lineup juggling, but the trade winds are understandably swirling given Utah’s immense…

  19. LeBron James: “If I wanted to, I could lead the league in scoring.”

    Dec 23, 2012, 4:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat's James passes against the Detroit Pistons in a preseason NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James has been great this season, but he’s not leading the league in scoring. That title currently belongs to Kobe Bryant; a guy who has more buckets than someone in Seattle with a leaky roof. LeBron is actually 5th in the NBA in scoring right now (behind Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant and James…

  20. Report: DeMarcus Cousins changes agents

    Dec 23, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    DeMarcus Cousins has made a mess for himself. He’s lashed out at opponents, coaches, announcers — pretty much everyone. He’s been fined, he’s been suspended. The Kings are tired of apologies. Cousins is sick of losing. And around and around we go. No matter whose side you’re on, it’s safe to say that Cousins has…

  21. Kyrie Irving crosses up Monta Ellis and drops a perfect dime (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    Kyrie Irving has the best handle in the NBA. Look, I know what you’re thinking. You’re probably worried that the Clippers’ winning streak has caused me to develop temporary amnesia and forget about the existence of Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford. Those guys are great, but I don’t remember seeing a player with a handle…

  22. Kevin Love out for Knicks game with eye injury

    Dec 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    Late in Minnesota’s big win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night, Kevin Love took a pretty gnarly poke to the eye. Love eventually ended up stumbling to the free throw line, and in a half Michael Jordan-ish display, hit the freebie without being able to really see. Love appeared to be in amazement…

  23. Trimester Awards: A Naughty and Nice List

    Dec 21, 2012, 6:19 PM EST

    Kevin Durant

    Can you believe it? The NBA season is somehow a third of the way finished, which means it’s probably time to take stock of what we’ve seen so far this year. We’ll give out some awards — ’tis the season and all that — but we’ll also dish out some coal. After all, what are…

  24. Three Stars of the Night: All you need is Love

    Dec 21, 2012, 3:01 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    So the Mayans had it wrong, and The Beatles had it right. To end the Thunder’s winning streak, all the Wolves needed was Love (of the Kevin variety) and maybe some bruising play from Nikola Pekovic, some serious playmaking from Alexey Shved, and a pinch of J.J. Barea. Having Russell Westbrook join Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely…

  25. Dwyane Wade throws a touchdown to LeBron James (VIDEO)

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:54 PM EST

    LeBron James

    No Thursday Night Football? No problem. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have you covered. LeBron has always playfully flirted with the idea of strapping on the pads, and tonight he gave us a little taste of how easy he could make the life of a quarterback (non-New York Jets division) if he gave up the…
