    Louisville’s Kevin Ware suffered about the most gruesome injury can suffer on the court.

    Nov 11, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    It’s never good when the boss calls you into his office. Especially if you are the coach of a basketball team that just got blown out by 31 points on your home court, with your team falling to 2-4 on the season. A season where the owner expects a title. But that’s what happened to…

    Carlos Delfino

    Carlos Delfino had foot surgery back in May (he injured it during the Rockets’ playoff series and was expected to miss 4-6 months).

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Kyrie Irving is in his third NBA season; Derrick Rose is in his fifth. However, the two leading faces of a generation of young, star point guards have never faced off — until tonight.

    There were other stars for Minnesota as they thrashed the Lakers’ “defense” Sunday night — Kevin Martin had 27 points shooting over the top of Steve Blake and Steve Nash, Kevin Love had 25 points and 13 rebounds — but Ricky Rubio was the glue that pulled it all together.

    Bradley Beal, Perry Jones

    Catch-and-shoot threes? Check. Creating your own shot on the perimeter? Check. Leaners? Check. Hot hand? Check. If there is such a thing as a hot hand Bradley Beal had it most of Sunday night as he outscored Kevin Durant on his way to a career-best 34 points on 13-of-23 shooting and 6-of-8 from three. Beal…

    PHOENIX — At some point if this continues, the surprise will dissipate and turn into some level of expectation. But for now, the Suns are simply enjoying their fast start after improving their record to 5-2 following another hard-fought victory, beating the Pelicans 101-94 for the second time this season. Phoenix is doing it with effort…

    BKN-NBA-TWOLVES-LAKERS

    LOS ANGELES — You could tell how serious Steve Nash seems to think his back/nerve issue is by his demeanor after the game. Speaking with the media in the hallway he was quiet and appeared deflated. He described himself as emotional and said this was hard to talk about. Nash played just 13 minutes and…

    Russell Westbrook, Nene

    Russell Westbrook and Nene had a run in earlier in the Thunder/Wizards game Sunday night — Nene blocked a Westbrook shot, talked a lot of smack, walked up to do more and the refs went with the lame double technical. Then the incident happened late in the fourth quarter — Westbrook recklessly charged into the…

  16. How does old-school Rick Adelman deal with waves of new stats? In small bytes.

    Nov 10, 2013, 9:22 PM EDT

    Rick Adelman

    Rick Adelman is advanced stats friendly — he was the coach in Houston with Daryl Morey as the GM for four seasons, if he was adverse to them he wouldn’t have lasted that long. Now with the new Sports VU cameras providing even more data than Morey could pour at him, how is Adelman handling…

    Nov 10, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    When San Antonio made their run to the Finals last year, they swept the depleted Lakers in the first round of the playoffs, and did the same to a very good Grizzlies team in the Western Conference Finals.

    A noon tip-off time for Sunday’s game in New York between the Spurs and the Knicks is far from normal by NBA standards, but it’s beginning to appear as though we might be able to count on performances like the one we saw from the home team in this one. San Antonio was ready from…
