  1. League execs on Kyrie Irving’s recent struggles: ‘He’s pouting’

    Dec 7, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    kyrie

    Kyrie Irving has been far from the dominating, game-changing point guard he showed capable of last season, and people around the league are beginning to take notice. He’s had games where he’s put up some decent numbers, but has done so inefficiently in recent weeks. After an 0-9 performance in Cleveland’s blowout loss to the…

  2. Blazers set NBA record for three-point percentage in rout of Jazz (VIDEO)

    Lillard

    If you’ve only been paying cursory attention to the NBA in its early stages this season, you may not have noticed the rise of the Portland Trail Blazers. But following Friday night’s 130-98 pasting of the Utah Jazz, Portland now has a record of 17-3 — the best in a very deep Western Conference. Guys…

  3. Report: Knicks have ‘zero intention’ of trading Carmelo Anthony

    Dec 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks have won two straight in blowout fashion, looking a little like last year’s club with the hot three-point shooting and briefly returning some sense of sanity to the team and its fan base. The media has yet to catch up, however, as the reports and rumors continue to fly about Carmelo Anthony‘s future…

  4. Victor Oladipo rejects Carmelo Anthony at the Rim (VIDEO)

    Dec 7, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    The Knicks rolled the Magic 121-83 on Friday to earn a much-needed second straight victory, but Orlando rookie Victor Oladipo came up with at least one play that was worthy of the highlight reel. As Carmelo Anthony drives the lane for what looks to be a certain slam, Oladipo rises up and rejects him at…

    Dec 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant‘s return — and the Lakers’ decision to announce it with a video on Facebook of Kobe’s jersey — is the focus of the latest edition of NBC’s ProBasketballTalk Podcast with myself and Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio.

  6. Paul Millsap hits a shot to beat first quarter buzzer vs. Cavs (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:47 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Russell Westbrook wasn’t the only one showcasing his range under pressure on Friday. Paul Millsap of the Hawks heaved a shot from well beyond half court to beat the first quarter buzzer against the Cavaliers, and it found nothing but the bottom of the net. We’d like to tell you that this particular heave mattered…

  7. Russell Westbrook drains a shot from near half court against Pelicans (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook takes a break on the court against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Anytime a player on either team hits a shot from a distance that borders on the absurd, the announcers on the telecast seemingly can’t wait to break out the local references in describing just how far away the attempt actually was. In this case, we had Russell Westbrook hitting a shot from near halfcourt to…

  8. Kyle Korver breaks record for consecutive games making a three (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 9:23 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Ray Allen couldn’t do it. Neither could Reggie Miller or Stephen Curry or any of the other three-point marksman you can name. Kyle Korver has now made a three in 90 consecutive games, breaking the record Dana Barros set in 1996. He did it midway through the first quarter from above the break on the…

    Dec 6, 2013, 6:52 PM EDT

    Otto Porter

    Otto Porter, the No. 3 pick of the Washington Wizards and the guy seen as their small forward of the future, could make his NBA debut Friday night. Porter, who strained his hip flexor in September and missed all of training camp and the start of the season, is active for the Wizards Friday night…

    Dec 6, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant decided to stay home from Sacramento, but he will be in the Lakers lineup Sunday night against Toronto. Steve Nash went with the Lakers up to Sacramento after a week of limited practices but nobody has any idea when we will see him. Or even if we ever will. Nash spoke with reporters…

  11. Kobe Bryant returning Sunday against Raptors

    Dec 6, 2013, 5:23 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant’s jersey has faced snow, rain and wind. Yet, it’s endured. That’s the lesson I took from the above video, which Kobe posted to Facebook today. Oh, and that Kobe will return Sunday against the Raptors. I guess he’s been through a lot, too. Sunday will mark just 240 days since he tore his…

  14. Kyle Korver will fire from arc Friday to set new NBA all-time three point streak

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Dana Barros, a little point guard out of Massachusetts who got to play for the Celtics as part of a 14-year NBA career, and while there he set a record: Eighty-nine consecutive games with a made three. If Kyle Korver knocks down a three Friday night when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers Korver will…

  15. Report: Rockets stepping up efforts to move Omer Asik

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:19 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    I would say the fact Houston has put Omer Asik on the trade block is the worst kept secret in the NBA, except it’s not a secret. Everybody knows it. The only questions are when he gets moved and where he lands. Talks have not progressed all that quickly because while other teams come in…

  16. Nate Robinson fined $25,000 for saying officials hate him

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    “They hate me, they hate me. I don’t know why, but it is what it is. I already know I’ve got the target on my back, but I’ll play through it; I don’t care. I really don’t. It doesn’t bother me none. If I get a call, I get a call. If I don’t, I…

  17. Rumor: Carmelo Anthony recruiting Rajon Rondo to come to New York in 2015

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Two

    The USA Today has a fantastic feature speaking to Rajon Rondo’s high school coach, Steve Smith (not the player Steve Smith, different guy). It’s well done, you can learn about Rondo as a young player. Then came this interesting tidbit when Smith was asked if he thought Rondo could bounce all the way back from…

  18. Glen Davis says he’s at his lowest weight since eighth grade

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks

    Apparently Glen Davis was a big child. Very big. Big Baby just returned to the lineup for the first time since last January, when he broke a bone in his foot that took two surgeries to repair properly. He’s looked pretty good since coming back — he had 33 points in the game against Philadelphia…

  19. Report: Heat shopping Joel Anthony, seeking depth behind Wade

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    Dwyane Wade is going to be taking a lot of games off this season as the Heat try to rest his knees for the playoffs. It started in the second game of the season and it will continue as he has been out 5 of the Heat’s 19 games (he missed the Bulls game Thursday…

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    Brook Lopez’s second season in the NBA the Nets went an ugly 12-70 (with him as their best player). This wasn’t a team trying to tank for the draft — the Nets got the third pick thanks to the lottery and chose Derrick Favors, who was moved in the Deron Williams deal — this was…
