  1. Video: Chris Paul hesitates, crosses, spins, then nails dagger for Clippers

    Nov 20, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Spurs are too good to make things easy on the Clippers — we all expected this one to go down to the wire and we got just that. Up two with 30 seconds to go in the game Chris Paul had Tony Parker up on him and drove, used a hesitation move to create…

  2. Alvin Gentry hears Marcin Gortat is frustrated, shrugs

    Nov 20, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    Marcin Gortat is getting few touches and he’s not happy. He’s getting 2.4 fewer shots per game so far this season compared to last, his usage rate dropped from 20.8 (percent of the possessions when he was on the floor) last season to 15.1 this season. Gortat vented his frustrations to a Polish publication, saying…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nuggets, Warriors win thrillers

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:26 AM EDT

    Andre Miller, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being thankful you don’t live next door to the guy with 478 birds… Clippers 92, Spurs 87: The temptation is to say it’s too early to say the Clippers are legit contenders. And it is, but they have now beaten…

  4. Clippers 92, Spurs 87: Making a list, checking it twice

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Manu Ginobili

    Doubting the legitimacy of the Los Angeles Clippers is not a new or particularly uncommon practice. Despite laying waste to the Grizzlies, Spurs, Lakers and Heat in convincing fashion already, there was a sense that this would be the first true test for the Clippers. They’d be out on the road, against the team that…

  5. Three Stars of the Night: A Pacer, a rooster, and an overtime thriller

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:24 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Darren Collison

    Tonight’s three stars offer up a range of performances, all in winning efforts. One player brought his hard hat (as he typically does) to bury his opponent with power moves, another hit a big shot down the stretch to take out the hottest team in the league, and last carried his team in the 4th…

  6. Spurs Stephen Jackson breaks pinky Monday, out 4-6 weeks

    Nov 19, 2012, 10:05 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Spurs have a hole at small forward suddenly. Stephen Jackson broke the little finger on his right hand during the game with the Clipperss Monday, the team announced. That is his shooting hand, and will be out four to six weeks. Jackson had been thrust into the starting lineup because of left knee tendonitis…

  7. Cavaliers Kyrie Irving out for month with fractured finger

    Nov 19, 2012, 8:15 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Take my word for it as someone who watches an inordinate amount of NBA League Pass, there was only two reasons to tune in to Cleveland Cavaliers games — Kyrie Irving and whoever they were playing against. Now the Cavaliers will be without Irving — he has a hairline fracture on his left index finger…

  8. League fines Zach Randolph for post-ejection confrontation with Kendrick Perkins

    Nov 19, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    Last Wednesday, in a physical game eventually won by the Grizzlies (because they love a physical game), Memphis’ Zach Randolph and Oklahoma City’s Kendrick Perkins had words. Then were ejected with 2:05 remaining. Then kept having words outside the locker rooms about how they should have more than words. They were separated. Nothing came of…

  9. Video: Watch Raptors fans being Jonas Valanciunas bobbleheads

    Nov 19, 2012, 6:44 PM EDT

    Raptors forward Jonas Valanciunas reacts after drawing a foul during their NBA basketball pre-season game in Toronto

    Well, you don’t see this every day. And with good reason. Raptors fans are pumped about what Jonas Valanciunas can bring to the team (even though their team defense is way off this season with him on the roster), and so Sunday in Toronto was the Valanciunas bobblehead game. Yes, we’re serious. And this is…

  10. Dwight Howard doesn’t care if Deron Williams isn’t his friend anymore

    Nov 19, 2012, 5:53 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    For years, Dwight Howard and Deron Williams talked about teaming up. They realized these kinds of super teams are the only way to compete with the Heat in the East. And it almost came together. Williams was in Brooklyn (well, New Jersey soon to be Brooklyn) and Howard was trying to force a trade there,…

  11. Bobcats Tyrus Thomas out two months with calf injury

    Nov 19, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Charlotte Bobcats

    Tyrus Thomas — who has given the Bobcats some pretty mediocre minutes off the bench so far this young season — is now out for two months due to a calf injury, reports Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. Charlotte Bobcats power forward Tyrus Thomas is expected to miss two months after a magnetic resonance…

  12. Spurs’ Neal misses games after dreaded luggage zipper injury

    Nov 19, 2012, 4:36 PM EDT

    Gary Neal, Aleksandar Rasic, Kristjan Kangur

    Gary Neal, this is why there are rookies in the NBA. To do things like zip up your luggage so you don’t suffer an injury that keeps you out games. Neal is expected back Monday night when the Spurs take on the Clippers, but he missed the team’s last two games for a reason that…

  13. Report: Darko Milicic may leave Celtics to return to Europe, sick mother

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    After a preseason when Celtics fans were high on him (this is why we say don’t read much into those games), Darko Milicic has been a non-factor for the Celtics. He played five minutes in the season opener and hasn’t sniffed the court since. Part of it is his mind is elsewhere — with his…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot goes walking in Memphis

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    Memphis has moved into the top spot in the poll this week, but notice the top three are teams we kind of expected to be on the second or third tier in the NBA this season. The question remains can they keep it up. Oh, and at the other end the Wizards still suck. 1.…

  15. Hidden key to the Lakers recent success? They’ve cut down their turnovers

    Nov 19, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Matt Barnes, Lamar Odom

    The last two Lakers games (wins over the Rockets and Suns) have foreshadowed a shift in how they hope to play for the rest of the season. The team that once ground out possessions in the half court has turned up the tempo and blown away the opposition by allowing their talent to shine. Highlight…

  16. Video: Steve Nash gets caught doing some “Gangnam style” moves

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    This isn’t Phoenix, Steve. This is Los Angeles. The cameras are everywhere. So here is the video of Steve Nash doing a little “Gangnam Style” that you have been dying to see. Enjoy.

  17. Report: D’Antoni hopes to make coaching debut Tuesday

    Nov 19, 2012, 12:53 PM EDT

    Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni announces he is unable to coach his new team against the Rockets, due to recovery from a knee operation, in Los Angeles

    Of course, that’s what he said about Sunday… Mike D’Antoni clearly wants to get on the sidelines and start coaching the Lakers, not just watch them put up triple-digit scores and win. He had said he planned to coach Sunday but pushed that back due to concerns about his energy levels — he did just…

  18. Jeremy Lin enjoying peaceful season in “low-key” Houston

    Nov 19, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Rockets guard Jeremy Lin comes under the basket against Lakers center Jordan Hill during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Jeremy Lin is still one of the faces of the franchise — he is the image the team use to sell season tickets, to lure in sponsors, him and now the beard of James Harden. That is what is sold, along with hope for the future. But being the face of the Houston Rockets and…

  19. Report: Brandon Roy out a couple of weeks after surgery

    Nov 19, 2012, 11:58 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    This is not a serious surgery, this is a simple scope job… except it’s on Brandon Roy’s troubled knees, so nothing is simple. Roy is going to undergo his seventh knee surgery this week, this time on his right knee. But it’s not supposed to keep him out that long, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

  20. Video: Metta World Peace threw a touchdown pass Sunday

    Nov 19, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    Metta World Peace did something no Philadelphia Eagles quarterback did Sunday — threw a touchdown pass. At the end of the first half World Peace was inbounding the ball and threw a length of the court pass to Pau Gasol, who sealed off his defender beautifully and made the play. This is pretty much how…
