  1. Other Game of the Night: Jason Richardson wins his homecoming in Oakland

    Dec 3, 2010, 5:55 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry Steve Nash

    What, there was another game Thursday night? Yes, one with a big homecoming too — Jason Richardson returned to Oakland… okay, maybe we can let this theme of the night go. But the Suns beat the Warriors 107-101 and Richardson did have 25 points. Both teams were in triple digits but the game wasn’t as…

  2. Video: LeBron’s postgame comments

    Dec 3, 2010, 1:35 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Minutes after the Cavaliers were done throttling the Cleveland Cavaliers in LeBron Jame’s homecoming, James spoke to TNT’s Craig Sager and his relatively mild suit this time around. You can see the video below. At one point James said he would “just try to continue the greatness for myself here in Miami and just try…

  3. Game of the night: LeBron makes his point, the Heat do not

    Dec 3, 2010, 12:41 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One thing we knew going into this game was the Heat were capable of just blowing out bad teams — 7 of their 11 wins had come by double digits over sub-.500 teams. Make that 8 of 12. For all the hype about the Cleveland fans getting to vent their anger at LeBron — and…

  4. Cavs/Heat first half notes: LeBron gets booed, can still ball

    Dec 2, 2010, 10:01 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Some notes from the first half of LeBron James’ return to Cleveland, where the Heat are blowing out the Cavs 59-40 at the half: • Oh, he got booed. When LeBron came out for pregame warmups he was greeted by very loud boos, followed by a chant of “a—hole.” • One fan was ejected for…

  5. Doc Rivers the next coach in Miami rumors still floating around

    Dec 2, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    riversheat

    Who is going to be the next coach of the Miami Heat has become almost as fun a guessing game in NBA circles as where will Carmelo Anthony land. And there are a number of people around the league who have been saying the answer may be Doc Rivers next season. The Miami Herald says…

  6. Jonny Flynn’s D-League rehab stint may be longer than expected

    Dec 2, 2010, 7:21 PM EDT

    Jonny Flynn

    The Minnesota Timberwolves, following the Toronto Raptors’ lead, did something smart. After their young, talented player started the season out on the shelf, they sent him down to the D-League to work his way back into basketball before bringing him along at the NBA level. Only first and second-year players are able to be assigned…

  7. Signs in Cleveland Tonight: No LeBron Jerseys

    Dec 2, 2010, 7:12 PM EDT

    202058441

    The photo you see to the right is of one of the signs at the bar Harry Buffalo in Cleveland, putting up a dress code for tonight and giving you an idea of the mood in town. As you can see, this is no Indians game, you can’t bring your LeBron James Heat jersey in.…

  8. Carlos Boozer, no stranger to deserting Cleveland, empathizes with LeBron

    Dec 2, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    Once upon a time, a LeBron James sidekick had delusions of grandeur. He saw a coin gleaming out of the corner of his eye, and turned his verbal commitment to re-sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers into mere words. It’s been five years since Carlos Boozer walked out on the Cavs, but if anyone can even…

  9. Bucks waive Darington Hobson, likely to sign Brian Skinner

    Dec 2, 2010, 5:32 PM EDT

    Brian Skinner

    When the Milwaukee Bucks cut Brian Skinner from their roster a little over a month ago, they were a different team. A healthier team. A team looking at a number of potential contributors at both power forward and center, led by Andrew Bogut but boasting a number of capable bigs to put behind and alongside…

  10. James, Heat players trying to prepare for Cleveland like every other game

    Dec 2, 2010, 5:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    It’s going to be different. Everyone knows tonight’s Miami Heat/Cleveland Cavaliers game is going to be emotional and raucous. But a few hours before tip off, Heat players told FanHouse they were feeling comfortable and just trying to treat this like any other basketball game. LeBron James said the game itself might be a refuge.…

  11. Report: League rescinds Carmelo Anthony’s second technical

    Carmelo Anthony was thrown out of the game in the third quarter of the team’s win Wednesday night over Miami. But now the league has rescinded the second technical, according to Chris Tomasson of FanHouse. In the third quarter, Anthony drove the lane and thought his shot should have counted because it was goaltending by…

  12. LeBron returns to Cleveland, and nobody will leave feeling like a winner

    Dec 2, 2010, 4:08 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Some team is going to win a basketball game tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. But is anybody going to walk out of the building tonight in Cleveland feeling like a winner? Feeling happy? When emotions are this intense, this raw, is that really even possible? Can anything — even a win by the Cavaliers —…

  13. Report: Carmelo Anthony not interested in New Jersey

    Dec 2, 2010, 3:17 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Denver Nuggets

    CBS’s Ken Berger threw this little note in at the end of his weekly column: …executives are becoming more convinced that Anthony would not agree to an extension with the Nets — a stance that could kill New Jersey’s months-long bid for the superstar once and for all. The reason is he doesn’t want to…

  14. Ron Artest pretends to be Luis Scola on Houston radio

    Dec 2, 2010, 2:54 PM EDT

    Artest_Lakers

    The Lakers may have lost four in a row — and Ron Artest may have missed a game winner at the buzzer in two of those — but the man still has his sense of humor. Artest called the official Houston Rockets radio post game show pretending to be Luis Scola as a prank (follow…

  15. Atlanta Hawks not going to miss Joe Johnson all that much

    Dec 2, 2010, 2:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    When a team’s leading scorer and acknowledged biggest star is going to be out for a month, the usual question is: Can they hold on? In Atlanta, it’s more like “Will it really matter?” Joe Johnson — the guy who got a bigger contract than LeBron James this summer — is going to be out…

  16. Foreshadowing? Heat’s plane has rough landing in Cleveland.

    Dec 2, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    If you believe in omens, and you’re rooting against the Heat tonight, then keep on reading. The Heat literally had a rough landing in Cleveland last night coming in after beating Detroit, according to the Associated Press. Jackie Mayo, a spokeswoman for Cleveland Hopkins airport, says the crew of the Heat’s plane reported a wing…

  17. Dwight Howard can still block shots like nobody else

    Dec 2, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    Howard_tall

    The Orlando Magic have the best defense in the NBA. They are giving up just 97.4 points per 100 possessions so far. That shouldn’t be a surprise, they have been at or near the top of the league for years. It is why they are contenders (if the offense will help out just a little…

  18. Kevin Durant’s knee injury not serious, listed as day-to-day

    Dec 2, 2010, 12:54 PM EDT

    Image (1) durant.jpg for post 425

    Kevin Durant — the leading scorer in the league, the beating heart of the Oklahoma City Thunder, most likely to be named Captain America — sat out Wednesday night’s Thunder triple-overtime win because of a sore knee. The words “sore knee” and “Durant” in the same sentence are enough to give any basketball fan pause,…

  19. Charles Barkley on playing Obama: “I’ll kick his (behind)”

    Dec 2, 2010, 11:49 AM EDT

    Image (1) cbarkley-thumb-250x140-18078.jpg for post 6241

    Charles Barkley speaks truth to power. Well, actually he just talks a lot. Some of it is truth, some bravado, some is… fertilizer. You can categorize Barkley’s comments to Conan O’Brien on taking on President Barack Obama in a game of one-on-one in in whichever of those categories you want (via Ball Don’t Lie). “I’m…

  20. Security in Cleveland tonight “not a police state”

    Dec 2, 2010, 11:19 AM EDT

    674282917

    There is a fair amount of security at every NBA game — men who sit behind the team benches watching the crowd, for example — but it’s not overwhelming. Like every professional sporting event that is not a Raiders game, there is kind of a belief that fans are not there cause harm to players…
