    Kyrie Irving had it all working against the Sixers on Saturday — the floater, the midrange jumper, and shots from three-point distance. But the speed and agility he displayed is what really is tough to account for, as evidenced by the way he was able to get to the rim and convert the game-winning shot…

  2. Dwight Howard swats Blake Griffin’s shot into the stands (VIDEO)

    Nov 10, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard attempted to make a statement early in his team’s contest against the Clippers on Saturday, coming over to help defensively and swatting Blake Griffin‘s shot attempt deep into the stands. It was an intimidation move by Howard and not a smart one, because keeping the ball in play or deflecting it to a…

    Heading into this weekend, we wondered if the Pacers would be able to continue their perfect start to the season facing a tough road matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. But while the Nets are still finding their way from a chemistry standpoint, the Pacers are already there. And behind yet another strong all-around game from…

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green hit a fading three-pointer from the corner as time expired in Miami to give the Celtics an improbable 111-110 win over the Heat on Saturday, which was Boston’s third straight. Dwyane Wade had a chance to ice the game at the free throw line, but missed two foul shots on the previous possession…

    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Kevin Garnett listens during a news conference introducing him in Brooklyn

    Kevin Garnett is in his 19th NBA season now with the Brooklyn Nets, but the man still has a nose for the ball and can get up for a spectacular finish on occasion. Early in the fourth quarter of his team’s matchup with the undefeated Pacers, Garnett saw the opportunity and pounced, going uncontested to…

  6. J.R. Smith set to make season debut for Knicks on Sunday

    Nov 9, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith

    It was an interesting offseason for J.R. Smith, and perhaps a more eventful one than the team would have liked it to be. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year re-signed in New York as a free agent on a deal that will pay him $18 million over three years, and that was about the…

  7. Jeff Green with the posterizing dunk over Jason Maxiell (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    We know. Rebuilding Celtics versus rebuilding Magic, with very few recognizable names or legitimate star power on the floor for either side. But then you see this, an aggressive posterizing dunk from Jeff Green over Jason Maxiell from Friday’s action, and you realize that the pool of individual player talent in the NBA is crazy…

  8. Iman Shumpert latest to receive warning for violating league’s anti-flopping rule (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    It seems as though the league has been cracking down on flopping a little bit more than it did a season ago, at least through this campaign’s first couple of weeks. A handful of players have already been issued initial warnings for violating the anti-flopping rule, and Iman Shumpert of the New York Knicks became…

  9. Kevin Love is putting up historically great numbers to begin the season

    Nov 9, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    A healthy Kevin Love was expected to make a world of difference for the Timberwolves this season, and through the first six games that’s been exactly what’s happened. Minnesota is off to a 4-2 start to the season, and Love’s dominance in multiple statistical categories is a big reason why. Love’s numbers aren’t just great…

  10. NBA sends memo to teams reminding them that no form of bullying will be tolerated

    Nov 9, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    An ugly situation has surfaced with the NFL’s Miami Dolphins regarding teammates bullying one another, and the NBA wants to make sure that nothing similar happens in their team locker rooms. It historically hasn’t been much of an issue at all, and rookie hazing in professional basketball has traditionally been limited to carrying bags of…

  11. Markieff Morris skies for the putback jam over Mozgov as part of career-best night (VIDEO)

    PHOENIX — Markieff Morris complained in the Suns locker room following the team’s wild 114-101 win over the Nuggets on Friday, despite posting a career high 28 points which included the monster putback slam over Timofey Mozgov seen in the video clip above. Morris was one of the last players to leave, hitting the cold…

  12. Andrea Bargnani has a huge night for Knicks (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Andrea Bargnani

    Things were starting to get dire for the Knicks, at least as much as they can be so grim just five games into the 82-game regular season. Tyson Chandler was lost for 4-6 weeks due to injury, and with a lack of healthy bigs on the roster while Kenyon Martin and Amar’e Stoudemire struggle with…

  13. Larry Sanders apologizes for nightclub incident that’s caused him to miss time with a thumb injury

    Nov 9, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Marquis Daniels, Larry Sanders

    The Bucks put a lot of faith in Larry Sanders this offseason in signing him to a four-year, $44 million contract extension, and since then he’s done little to show he’s deserving of that trust. On the court, Sanders has been underwhelming in his first three games of the year, with averages of just 2.7…

    Brian Shaw

    PHOENIX — The Suns improved to 4-2 on the young season with a 114-103 win over the Nuggets on Friday, in a contest that saw some extremely wild swings in both score and momentum before the night was through. The first half was all Phoenix, as they followed up a 35-point first quarter by holding Denver…

  16. Gerald Green gets way up to finish the alley-oop against Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 1:15 AM EDT

    Gerald Green

    Gerald Green has been much more than just a dunker in his first few games in Phoenix, and with Goran Dragic still out with a sprained ankle, Green once again got the start on Friday against the Nuggets. Green played with emotion and intensity on both ends of the floor while finishing with 12 points,…

  17. Anthony Davis with monster dunk on Lakers (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    Anthony Davis is a beast. Against the Lakers Friday night he had 32 points, 12 rebounds, 6 blocks and three assists as he led the Pelicans to a win over Lakers. He looked every bit the franchise player they expect him to be, making defensive plays and he just moves so well and smartly off…

  18. Andrew Bynum booed in his return to Philadelphia with Cavaliers (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2013, 9:32 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum knew this was coming. In his return to Philadelphia with the Cavaliers on Friday, Bynum was booed lustily by the hometown crowd when he checked in for the first time late in the first quarter, despite never playing a single game for the franchise last season. Actually, that’s probably the reason why. Bynum…

    UPDATE 6:10 p.m. ET: Curry is out, reports Sam Amick of USA Today. 1:17 p.m. ET: Stephen Curry is officially day-to-day with a bone bruise in his ankle — and considering this is their star player with a long history of ankle issues (including multiple surgeries), you can expect the Warriors will be cautious here.…

    Nov 8, 2013, 7:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    In the third quarter of the Heat’s win over the Clippers Thursday, Blake Griffin was setting a pick for Chris Paul and Mario Chalmers decided to fight through it — with his forearm up, catching Blake Griffin in the neck. Friday the league announced a $15,000 fine for Chalmers for the play. Not a shock,…
