  1. Quote of the Day: Jamison thinks Lakers’ drama is nothing

    Nov 13, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison, Lamar Odom

    “I dealt with LeBron leaving Cleveland and guys bringing firearms in the locker room. This is mild.” —Veteran Lakers forward Antawn Jamison, discussing the firing of Mike Brown, the flirtation with Phil Jackson and the hiring of Mike D’Antoni, courtesy the twitter of Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. Just as a crash course refresher, Jamison was…

  2. Minnesota’s Budinger out three months after knee surgery

    Nov 13, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Chase Budinger, Taj Gibson

    We knew what happened to Chase Budinger — he tore the lateral meniscus in his left knee Saturday while playing the Bulls. What we didn’t know was how long he will be out. Now we do, via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network. After knee surgery today, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Chase…

  3. Injuries have Timberwolves considering roster additions

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:53 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    Kevin Love’s hand. Ricky Rubio’s knee. Chase Budinger’s knee. Brandon Roy’s knees. J.J. Barea’s foot. Now after Monday night you can add Nikola Pekovic’s ankle to the list. Minnesota’s long list of injuries is long and serious. It’s a huge credit to coach Rick Adelman that the Timberwolves are 5-2 this young season. But they…

  4. D’Antoni will coach Lakers Friday, understands fans aren’t happy

    Nov 13, 2012, 11:52 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Washington Wizards

    Politicians do this all the time — for their first interview after a big bit of news or awkward revelation, their first interview is with a friendly media outlet that is not going to pepper them with hard questions. Mike D’Antoni’s first interview in Los Angeles came Tuesday morning — with Ryan Seacrest. Yes, American…

  5. Jim Buss has Lakers power, kept it and used it to hire D’Antoni

    Nov 13, 2012, 11:14 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    The idea Phil Jackson was the clear frontrunner for the Lakers head coaching job was not some media creation or fan fiction — everyone around the team said Jackson was the lead candidate. From the start if felt odd — if you were around and felt the distaste between Jackson and Jim Buss (the guy…

  6. Report: Heat now on top of Kenyon Martin’s list

    Nov 13, 2012, 10:23 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martins remains a free agent. He had gone from saying he wanted more than the league minimum and was only going to play for a contender to saying he will play for the league minimum and he will play for anyone. But he’d still like to be in Miami, according to Ira Winderman of…

  7. Video: Russell Westbrook passes to self off Brandon Knight

    Nov 13, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    I think this is my favorite play from last night. Tie game, inside five minutes in the fourth quarter and Russell Westbrook does a very Westbrook thing and gets caught in the air with nowhere to go with the ball. So he improvised, threw it off Brandon Knight, got it back and scored the layup.…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s all about the Boston offense

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Brandon Bass, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Jason Terry

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being scared by the idea of a Hillary Clinton decorating show…. Jazz 140, Raptors 133 (3OT): Utah got its first road win but the Raptors made them really work for it — they needed the second three of Al Jefferson’s…

  9. Video: Al Jefferson, John Lucas threes in Jazz/Rockets thriller

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Raptors' Bargnani goes to the basket against Jazz's Favors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    If you didn’t get to watch the Jazz and Raptors triple overtime thriller Monday… well, sorry. You can read our recap of the game. But it’s not quite the same. Here’s some video from the Air Canada Centre — Utah’s Al Jefferson hitting only the second three of his career to send the game to…

  10. Suns overcome another big deficit in comeback win over Nuggets

    Nov 13, 2012, 2:36 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — It’s getting to be a habit, and one the Suns are desperately trying to break. But for the third straight game, Phoenix fell behind by double digits early, only to rally late to make it a contest. Monday night, the team got its second win in three of those tries by coming back…

  11. Three Stars: We are all witnesses

    Nov 13, 2012, 2:02 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    What a night. We saw Utah and Toronto battle it out in a triple-overtime slugfest high on theatrics. We saw the Pistons put a scare into the Thunder before collapsing, and the Bulls make things interesting against the Celtics. There were a lot of memorable moments from tonight’s games, but like anyone who has stood…

  12. Video: Jason Maxiell sends Russell Westbrook’s layup to the moon

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:52 AM EDT

    Maxiell_Jason

    The Pistons blew a double-digit lead at home to the Thunder, remaining winless at 0-8 on the season. Things obviously aren’t going great in Detroit, but at the very least, they were aesthetically pleasing tonight for the first time in a long time. Jason Maxiell was a big part of that. Although he is crazy…

  13. Game of the Night: Utah outlasts Toronto in triple-overtime thriller

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:28 AM EDT

    Jazz's Jefferson celebrates with team mate Foye after Jefferson scored a three point shot to tie the game at the buzzer against the Raptors at the end of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Ask a Schoolhouse Rock aficionado or a Utah Jazz fan tonight, and they’ll let you in on a little secret: 3 really is the magic number. The Utah Jazz traveled to Toronto to take on the Raptors, and the triple-overtime battle that ensued was not only the game of the night, but probably the game of the…

  14. Players union appeals DeMarcus Cousins suspension

    Nov 12, 2012, 9:28 PM EDT

    dcousins

    DeMarcus Cousins did an immature thing — he heard Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliot was hard on him during the telecast and came out of the locker room in his uniform to confront him “in a hostile manner.” The league is not fond of players confronting media partners like that, so Cousins got a two-game suspension,…

  15. Bynum says not practicing until December not a setback, he’s on schedule

    Nov 12, 2012, 8:57 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    So, apparently he was just on a much, much slower schedule than anyone realized. Andrew Bynum is not going to able to practice with the Sixers until around Dec. 10, and it will be a couple of weeks after that before he is back on the court. So we’re talking maybe Christmas. But he says…

  16. Phil Jackson says he had handshake deal that he could decide on Lakers job Monday

    Nov 12, 2012, 7:12 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    Phil Jackson is telling his side of the story. Or, at least the public side of it. He released a statement Monday night that confirms part of what the Lakers have said — that this was a basketball decision not a move made because of salary, time off or other requests — but it also…

  17. D’Antoni says he was surprised by Lakers offer, happy to be back with Nash

    Nov 12, 2012, 6:19 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni Steve Nash

    Mike D’Antoni expected to be the Lakers coach about as much as you expected him to be the Lakers coach. Which is to say, not at all. He had a Saturday phone interview with the Lakers. After his awkward stint in New York, his next gig might not be a plum one. But late Sunday…

  18. Reaction from ‘Melo, Lakers players to D’Antoni hiring

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:57 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    And the reactions are pouring in to the Lakers hiring of Mike D’Antoni… except from Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant. You know, the two guys you most want to hear from. Neither of them spoke to the media today. Nash because he got treatment on his injured leg and left the Lakers facilities before media…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    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

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  20. Mike D’Antoni a better long-term choice than Phil Jackson

    Nov 12, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Washington Wizards

    It was certainly a surprise when the news broke late Sunday night that Mike D’Antoni had been hired by the Lakers as their new head coach. The job was believed to be Phil Jackson’s if he wanted it, while a second meeting between Jackson and the Lakers appeared to be in the works, perhaps to…
