  1. Bulls expect Rose to return, Deng to be out Monday

    Jan 23, 2012, 8:04 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The good news: Derrick Rose should be back for the Bulls Monday. The bad news: Don’t expect Luol Deng to be in the lineup with him. The Bulls have some sort of Seinfeld-like “even Stephen” thing going on — Joakim Noah may be back in the lineup but Taj Gibson is likely out. Rose has…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Maybe Miami does miss Wade

    LeBron James

    What you missed while wildly overreacting to your team’s loss… Pacers 98, Lakers 96: This contrast in offensive balances was our game of the night. Bucks 91, Heat 82: Milwaukee turned this into an ugly, grind-it-out game that favored their style and not the high-flying Heat. So, exactly what Scott Skiles wants them to do.…

  3. Pacers show fight, Lakers don’t and roll over again in loss

    Jan 23, 2012, 2:16 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Paul George

    The Indiana Pacers know who they are — balanced and unselfish. They also fight. Down by 13 in the first quarter Sunday they come out in the second quarter throwing haymakers (and shoot 67 percent). Break Roy Hibbert’s nose and he’ll come back in the fourth quarter and give you eight points with the game…

  4. David Stern doesn’t see what the big deal is about players leaving their teams

    Jan 22, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    David Stern

    In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, David Stern put on the old jousting tights and once again decided to do a little dance around the media. In a wide ranging interview, Stern discussed his relationship with ownership, old and new, the effect of the lockout on injuries (surprise, he says there isn’t one), and…

  5. So… what exactly are the Sixers?

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    From SBNation’s excellent Sixers’ blog Liberty Ballers (pardon the extensive blockquote, but I need it for context): Denver, Atlanta, Miami. That was the “tough stretch” Jordan wrote about early last week. Finally, after 13 games where the opponents winning percentage was a lowly .371, they’d play some actual competition. Now, we’d find out if this…

  6. Michael Jordan is mentoring Gerald Henderson

    Jan 22, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Michael Jordan

    Michael Jordan’s legacy as a “teacher” or someone who passed the game on isn’t exactly sterling. He pretty much killed Kwame Brown‘s soul, and has never been known to take a special interest in any of his players on the Wizards or Bobcats. Jordan is known to have ridiculously high standards, keeps a close circle…

  7. Dwight Howard’s pining for point guard help is kind of crushing Jameer Nelson’s soul

    Jan 22, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

    Imagine you’re working on a project with a guy. Your careers depend on it. Now, your partner is an exceptional talent, he’s one of the best guys in the business at what you do. But he needs a complimentary guy with your specific skills. If things go well, you’re looking at being the best in…

  8. Melo says it may be time to ‘re-evaluate everything’ and that you can boo him all you want

    Jan 22, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Tommy Hilfiger Womens - Backstage - Spring 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    The word “reflective” was used to describe Carmelo Anthony after Saturday night’s loss to the Nuggets. He wasn’t just pressing ahead, spitting out “both teams played hard” and ignoring the realities of where the Knick are at. He was honest about the struggles, and even if the comments come with a slight dose of bitterness,…

  9. Josh Harrellson suffers broken wrist, will be out more than six weeks

    Jan 22, 2012, 9:12 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    As if the Knicks losing again, at home, to the Denver Nuggets with half their lineup from the past few years wasn’t depressing enough, the Knicks suffered another loss Saturday night. The Knicks announced after the game that backup big man Josh Harrellson suffered a broken wrist on Saturday night and will miss six weeks…

  10. Knicks put it together against Nuggets… and then go back to Melo-ball

    Jan 22, 2012, 12:11 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    It makes sense, on one level. You play good team ball for 45 minutes. You create open looks, you drive to the rim, you produce opportunities to get you into a tight game. And then, when it comes down to clutch time, you let your star scorer score. That makes a lot of sense and…

  11. Utah’s Derrick Favors fined for throwing ball into the the stands (video)

    favors-fined

    In this era where a majority of the NBA’s star players seem to be friendly with one another in some capacity off the court, a regular season basketball game that achieves a certain level of chippiness is a welcome surprise. So with that in mind, we bring you these selected highlights from Utah’s close loss…

  12. Report: Boston’s prepared to “move on” from Big 3

    Jan 21, 2012, 7:30 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    Recently Danny Ainge out and out told reporters that he’s willing to hear offers for members of the Big 3. Now comes a report from the New York Daily News that takes it a step further. But with Paul Pierce dealing with heel issues, Kevin Garnett fading, Ray Allen still effective shooting threes but headed…

  13. Dirk Nowitzki out 4 games for “conditioning” on his knee

    Jan 21, 2012, 7:12 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Just prior to Dallas’ game against New Orleans, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle informed the media that Dirk Nowitzki would miss four straight games to work on “conditioning issues” according to multiple sources. BREAKING: Mavs coach Rick Carlisle says Dirk Nowitzki will be out at least four games to work on his conditioning.Sat Jan 21 23:53:34…

  14. NBA admits refs missed a huge call at the end of the Pacers’ win over the Warriors

    Jan 21, 2012, 6:49 PM EST

    George Hill, Darren Collison

    Kevin Love‘s big shot to beat the Clippers may have been the big story in the NBA on Friday, but there was another play near the end of regulation in the game between the Pacers and the Warriors that was just as exciting. Only with that one, the NBA admits the officials made a horrible…

  15. The Knicks, Carmelo, D’Antoni, and being set up for success vs. failure

    Jan 21, 2012, 4:23 PM EST

    New York Knicks Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    It’s panic time in New York. Not across the board, mind you. There are always those that seek calmer seas, that urge for patience, that understand that all teams go through winning and losing streaks, and just because times are rough it does not mean you throw out the mustached baby with the What-Toney-Dougalas-Do bathwater.…

  16. Hornets closing in on Eric Gordon extension?

    Jan 21, 2012, 2:55 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    When the Hornets traded Chris Paul for multiple players including Eric Gordon, there was a concern that due to their rebuilding process, Gordon may not be willing to spend his years in the Big Easy wasting away through a lottery reconstruction. Gordon is entering restricted free agency, after all, and a signing of the qualifying…

  17. Weekend Observations 1.21.12: Dead legs and the dirty ground

    Jan 21, 2012, 1:18 PM EST

    Ricky Rubio

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. The Lakers use the pick and roll a lot but what winds up happening is it just resets the offense on the weak side. It doesn’t result in shots or quick passes. It’s like spending 10 hours cooking a hamburger.…

  18. Paul Pierce “can’t pay attention” to trade rumors

    Jan 21, 2012, 11:31 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    Steve Nash and what is left of the once-feared Phoenix Suns came into the Gah-den and beat the Boston Celtics Friday night. That would be six losses in the last seven games, and like Friday some are coming to below .500 teams. That is some more fuel on the growing “blow up the Celtics” fire.…

  19. While Knicks struggle, back-up Jeremy Lin messes around and gets a triple-double in the D-League

    Jan 21, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    Jeremy Lin

    The New York Knicks have been dealing with quite a few issues this season, some of which are related to injury, but it was succinctly summed up on Friday night when Knicks blog Posting and Toasting wrote that they would “rather eat a cactus than watch these Knicks.” If fans aren’t quite ready to start…

  20. Video: Kevin Love’s game winning three beats Clippers

    Jan 21, 2012, 8:28 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love was the happiest man in the building. (His agent, Dan Fegan, who is trying to get him a contract extension and was in the building, may have been second). How did this play go down? We present to you a quote from each of the coaches, then we will let you draw your…
