  1. Rajon Rondo sprains ankle, questionable for Thursday vs. Nets

    Nov 15, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo rolled his ankle in the third quarter of Boston’s win over Utah and did not return. You know that’s not a good sign — there are few players tougher and willing to play through more than Rondo. Doc Rivers isn’t sure if he can go for Boston Thursday against the Nets, reports A.…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics bench gets them a win

    Nov 15, 2012, 6:34 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thinking at least one drug dealer really cares…. Grizzlies 107, Thunder 97: We told you last week in the power rankings Memphis was for real. Believe us now? Brett Pollakoff broke down this game for us. Clippers 107, Heat 100:…

  3. Three Stars of the Night: Three huge games, one huge hairdo

    Nov 15, 2012, 2:00 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum hair

    There were some fantastic performances on the court Wednesday night, but if you want to know what people were buzzing about on twitter it was that photo to the right — Andrew Bynum’s hair. Which I can’t describe, but it’s buzz worthy. I think the face of the guy to Bynum’s left really says it…

  4. Clippers have no trouble blowing out your defending champion Miami Heat

    Nov 15, 2012, 1:54 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers can make a legitimate claim to the title of the league’s top team, or at the very least, the best in the Western Conference. Their record now stands at 6-2 after an impressive routing of the Heat on Wednesday 107-100, and the teams ahead of them in the standings — the Spurs and…

  5. Video: Kemba Walker’s game-winner buries the Timberwolves

    Nov 15, 2012, 12:08 AM EDT

    Kemba Walker

    If the playoffs started today, the Charlotte Bobcats would be the seven-seed in the Eastern Conference. They don’t, of course, and there’s an entire season to deal with before that could become a reality. But think about that for a second — as abysmal as the Bobcats franchise has been, winning more than 35 games…

  6. Video: Eric Bledsoe rejects Dwyane Wade’s dunk attempt

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:45 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    Dwyane Wade was a game-time decision for Wednesday’s game in L.A. against the Clippers, and as this highlight shows on an endless loop the next 24 hours, he may end up wishing he sat this one out. Jokes, people. But Eric Bledsoe‘s ridiculous block of Wade’s flying dunk attempt on the fast break is worthy…

  7. Grizzlies continue impressive start with road win over Thunder

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Marc Gasol Zach Randolph

    The Memphis Grizzlies look like a team ready to compete in the postseason. The Thunder look like a team still searching for answers. The result of the meeting between these two teams reflected that on Wednesday, as Memphis had little trouble in cruising to a convincing 107-97 win in Oklahoma City. When we last saw…

  8. NBC SportsTalk: Could Rockets be doing more to accommodate Royce White?

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:09 PM EDT

    Royce White

    There are no simple, easy answers with Royce White in Houston. He is a rookie frustrated with playing time — something a lot of rookies are — but his issues there should not be tied to the anxiety order that he is dealing with. Not completely, anyway. It’s messy. Wednesday on Sports Talk on the…

  9. Video: Jeff Green dunks all over Al Jefferson

    Nov 14, 2012, 9:59 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    This is just a monster posterization from the Celtics Jeff Green, as he drives along the baseline and explodes to go up and over Utah’s Al Jefferson for the one-handed slam. It didn’t even seem like Green would quite be able to get this to go down when he took off just outside the restricted…

  10. What is going on with the struggling Miami Heat defense?

    Nov 14, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates win over Atlanta Hawks with Bosh and Allen during their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    If you haven’t been watching, if you didn’t look at the numbers, you could easily miss it because the Heat are 6-2 and Miami remains the city you are going to have to go through to get an NBA title. But the Miami Heat defense has been bad this year. They are 24th in the…

  11. People Magazine says Mario Chalmers is one of the sexiest people alive

    Nov 14, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Image (1) Mario_Chalmers.jpg for post 2631

    I am not the person who really should judge this, but I have to ask the question: Is Mario Chalmers the sexiest man in Alaska? People Magazine thinks so. The publication does an annual “sexiest man alive” edition, one that somehow bloggers seem rarely to be a part of. Strange. Anyway, this year to break…

  12. Video: Worst. Basketball. Moment. Ever. (Thanks Belgium)

    Nov 14, 2012, 6:33 PM EDT

    NBA basketball spaulding

    I have gone and watched my 9-year-old neighbor’s basketball games, and I have never seen anything like this video out of a Belgian league of some age (hat tip to The Big Lead). Let’s go over what is wrong here. First, notice the player in the dark uniform is shooting a free throw, which he…

  13. Dwyane Wade a game-time decision against Clippers

    Nov 14, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    UPDATE 10:05 p.m. ET: Wade will play tonight, according to the Heat (via Ken Berger of CBSSports.com) Dwyane Wade will be a game-time decision for Wednesday night’s nationally televised contest against the Clippers at Staples Center, according to multiple reports. Wade did not practice on Wednesday, and is expected to get an X-ray well before…

  14. Magic Johnson “mourning” Lakers not hiring Phil Jackson. Ugh.

    Nov 14, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Magic Johnson

    I have the utmost respect for Magic Johnson the basketball player. I think he gets shortchanged in GOAT conversations, a guy who broke the mold and would have fit it brilliantly in today’s NBA undergoing a positional revolution because guys are trying to develop the varried skill set he had. I think Johnson should be…

  15. Video: Chris Bosh makes cameo on NBC sitcom “Go On”

    Nov 14, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    I know that some of you, because you have been glued to League Pass, are behind on watching episodes of “Go On,” the NBC sitcom with Mathew Perry where he’s a sports talk radio host (Tuesdays at 9 ET, 8 CT). That means on Tuesday night you missed a Chris Bosh cameo. You know, the…

  16. Stern says NBA revenues should be $5 billion this season

    Nov 14, 2012, 3:14 PM EDT

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    During the NBA lockout, we all got frustrated watching the owners and argue over how to divide up $4 billion in revenue. Billion. With a “B.” Now, make that $5 billion. That is what NBA Commissioner David Stern said speaking Tuesday at Beyond Sport United conference in New York, according to the Associated Press. The…

  17. Hedo Turkoglu has setback with hand, to miss another month

    Nov 14, 2012, 2:37 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 are a scrappy team. They are off to a 2-5 start but they are not making it easy on anybody. They just don’t have a lot of firepower and what veterans they can trust have been out — Jameer Nelson for a sixth game in a row Wednesday, for example. Then there…

  18. DeMarcus Cousins releases statement, union appeals suspension

    Nov 14, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Klay Thomspon, DeMarcus Cousins, Andrew Bogut

    DeMarcus Cousins has sat out his league mandated two-game suspension for an angry confrontation with Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliott — he tried to appeal it but the league denied his request to even reconsider the appeal. So now the players union is taking up his case and appealing — he can’t get the games back…

  19. Andrew Bogut to be out at least a little longer than expected

    Nov 14, 2012, 1:25 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut wasn’t right, he wasn’t fully healed from his off-season ankle surgery and it showed on the court. So the Warriors decided to give him a week to 10 days to let it heal more. That wasn’t enough. Warriors coach Mark Jackson says Bogut is not going with the Warriors on their current three-game…

  20. Popovich says hero-ball is ‘boring,’ which explains difference between Spurs and Lakers last-second shots

    Nov 14, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    The Spurs beat the Lakers on Tuesday thanks to a three-pointer from Danny Green that put San Antonio up by two with 9.3 seconds left. We broke down the beauty of the play that Gregg Popovich called — multiple screens, all players in motion, freeing up a shooter for a good look at the final…
