    Nov 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    We showed you the game-winner from Brandon Jennings, an incredible launch from the top of the three-point arc with 0.7 seconds left to beat the Cavaliers as time expired. Cleveland’s head coach, Byron Scott, was less excited about Jennings’ heroics than the rest of us. He told reporters afterward that the clock started late, so…

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    There was no contract extension for Brandon Jennings by the Oct. 31 deadline, for a variety of reasons. Two games into the season, it seems like Jennings has every intention of making Milwaukee pay, quite literally, for that decision. In Friday’s win over the Celtics, Jennings notched a career high in both assists (13) and…

  3. Ray Allen’s four-point play sends Heat to win over Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    This is exactly why the Miami Heat’s acquisition of Ray Allen is going to be such a problem for opposing defenses. The Nuggets did almost everything right against the Heat on Saturday, yet still lost to the defending champs by a final of 119-116. That’s because with the game on the line, and Denver leading…

    The way Brandon Rush reacted immediately following his ugly knee injury in the first quarter of the Warriors’ Friday night loss to the Grizzlies, it was easy to fear the worst. On Saturday, the team confirmed it. Rush is expected to be out for the season with a torn ACL, according to his agent Mark…

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    It wasn’t a pretty start to the season for the Hawks on Friday, and things aren’t likely to get better when the team next takes the floor in Oklahoma City on Sunday. Josh Smith has been ruled out for the Hawks’ road game against the Thunder due to an ankle sprain. He won’t even make…

  6. Video: Kevin Durant drops Sasha Pavlovic with the crossover

    Nov 3, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Richard Jefferson

    We don’t really think of Kevin Durant as a skilled ball-handler, specifically. He’s certainly one of the smoothest scorers in the game, and can explode to the rim for a dunk in traffic just as easily as he can pull up for a quick-release three-pointer from distance. Maybe this play will help get Durant’s handles…

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett calls out to his team mates as the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks during the second half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Kevin Garnett is a different dude. Now in his eighteenth NBA season, if you didn’t know this by now, you’re clearly new to things. Let us welcome you, then, to the wonderful world of KG, and how he sees the game through specially-colored glasses. After the Celtics fell to 0-2 on the young season in…

    Nov 3, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    The Orlando Magic got a big, and largely unexpected victory over the Nuggets on Friday, thanks to a 29 point, 10 rebound effort from Glen Davis, and 21 points off the bench from J.J. Redick.

  10. Chris Paul doesn’t buy Jamal Crawford doesn’t practice dribbling

    Nov 3, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    At one point in the second quarter of the Clippers win over the Lakers Friday night — on what was supposed to be the Lakers home court — Jamal Crawford crossed over a Lakers defender to get an open look on the left wing, a move so sweet there was an audible gasp from the…

    Nov 3, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant reacts during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Lakers fans have been in a state of panic since their team looked horrible in an opening night loss to the Mavericks, who (by the way)  were playing without an injured Dirk Nowitzki. Kobe Bryant and the rest of the team might be ready to join them. Although they were pretty calm after the game…

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

    If James Harden continues to play like he’s played in his first two games with the Rockets, the trade that brought him to Houston may eventually be seen as one of the most one-sided in NBA history. It’s early, of course, and finances were the motivation in Oklahoma City, where Harden didn’t (and wouldn’t) have…

    rasheed wallace knicks

    It was quite a night for Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden. The home team blew out the defending world champion Heat, and the fans chanted their way into seeing Rasheed Wallace take the floor for the first time as a member of the Knicks. Sheed isn’t yet in game shape, and isn’t likely to…

    Nov 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard

    DeAndre Jordan can jump high and finish. If you want him to rotate quickly on defense or knock down his free throws you are talking to the wrong guy. But if you want a guy to throw it down and give you a highlight, he’s your man. Jordan drew the foul on this play —…

They are Chris Paul’s team, Lob City, a lot of pick-and-roll, Jamal Crawford breaking guys ankles, Blake Griffin attacking the rim The Lakers are… still trying to figure it out.

    So, who had the Bobcats, Magic, Bucks and Knicks all winning tonight? Of course you did. There were lots of upsets around the league, but who are the PBT Three Stars of the Night? Who is hanging out with Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan in the record books? And where in the world is Carmen…

  20. Knicks play like adults, spank the Heat in home opener

    Nov 2, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The advanced age of the Knicks has been a source of comedy this offseason, but the Miami Heat probably don’t think the Knicks are much of a joke after getting blown out, 104-84, at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks may be short on speed and athleticism with their role players, but it’s evident already that…
