  1. Report: Rockets asking price for Omer Asik “delusional”

    Nov 29, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Yes, the Houston Rockets are looking to trade Omer Asik and they almost certainly will before the trade deadline. However it’s likely not happening soon because the difference between what the Rockets see as his value and other teams are willing to give up for him are not in the same zip code. It’s basically…

  2. Tony Parker out Friday, but big picture thinks he can keep playing at this level for years

    Nov 29, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Last season Tony Parker was the focal point of a top-10 NBA offense and led his team to within a heartbeat of winning an NBA title. Then over the summer he was the unquestioned star of a French national team that won its first ever European Championship. Now back in the NBA he is again…

  3. Russell Westbrook still trying to find his shot

    Nov 29, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    Just having Russell Westbrook back on the court has opened up the Thunder offense — they are three points per 100 possessions better in those last 10 games, the Thunder are shooting better (four percentage points better from three) and most importantly they are 8-2 as a team. That includes wins over the Spurs and…

  4. Timberwolves selling fans chance to high-five Heat players

    Nov 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    For struggling NBA teams (and even some not-so-bad ones) it’s pretty common to see them sell the opponent coming to town. “Come see Kobe Bryant while you still can” or “Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the high-flying Thunder are coming to town” is a pretty common pitch. But the Timberwolves are taking it to a…

  5. Quote of the day: Metta World Peace didn’t know if Aunt Jemima coached the Knicks

    Nov 29, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace, Mike Woodson

    “I honestly didn’t even know who the coach was when I was coming to New York. I just wanted to win a championship; I didn’t even know who was coaching. I didn’t care. It could have been Aunt Jemima. They could have had the syrup coaching. I was coming here regardless. I just wanted to…

  6. Jeremy Lin to be out two weeks with knee sprain

    Nov 29, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    jeremy lin, dwight howard

    First James Harden missed time with a foot injury, but he is likely to return Friday night as the Rockets host the Brooklyn Nets. Which is good because his replacement Jeremy Lin is going to miss a little time. Lin expected to miss two weeks with a Grade 1 sprain of his right knee, as…

  7. George Karl thinks Iguodala was Mark Jackson’s mole, still ticked about Jackson’s playoff “tricks”

    Nov 29, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl watches his team play against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoffs in Denver

    Denver looked like a team that could do a lot of damage in the playoffs last season – they won 57 games, the players bought into the style George Karl was preaching, and they were a disruptive if not elite defense. Then Danilo Gallinari went down and they were never the same. On either end…

  8. Report: Marc Gasol could be back with Grizzlies in month or less

    Nov 29, 2013, 9:29 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The sooner the better for Memphis. The trend right now among NBA teams is to say a guy is out “indefinitely” with an injury and not give a timetable. (Unless you’re the Knicks, then every injury is day-to-day, even when it’s not.) You can thank Derrick Rose for that, nobody wants to give the impression…

  9. Rudy Gay puts up 500 shots at practice trying to shoot way out of slump

    Nov 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    Rudy Gay is struggling this season. He is shooting 37.5 percent so far this season, averaging 19.4 points a game but taking 18.9 shots a game to get there. Tuesday night he was 3-of-12 from the floor with seven turnovers against the Nets weak defense. It felt like a low point for him. So he…

  10. Denver put away Minnesota on 6-0 dunk run (VIDEO)

    Nov 29, 2013, 1:59 AM EDT

    hickson dunk

    There were no games on Thanksgiving to bring you highlights from, so we have one more from Wednesday night. Denver’s offense has opened up since JaVale McGree went down — driving lanes have have parted like the Red Sea, and the Nuggets feel like they are running more, and guys are working hard on the…

  11. PBT Roundtable: Who’s third best in the East?

    Nov 28, 2013, 11:45 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question:  The Heat and the Pacers have been the clear class of the Eastern Conference so far, but who is the third best team there right now? Who will be at the end of the…

  12. Mason Plumlee finishes the reverse alley-oop against Lakers (VIDEO)

    Nov 28, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    mason plumlee nets

    The Nets erased all of a 27-point deficit before ultimately falling to the Lakers on Wednesday, and that doesn’t happen without converting at least a few significant highlight-level plays. This acrobatic finish by Mason Plumlee was one of them that qualified. Andray Blatche fired the pass to Plumlee inside, who elevated with his back to…

  13. Roy Hibbert finds Paul George for the alley-oop slam (VIDEO)

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    It isn’t extremely common for a team’s big man presence to find the slashing forward with a perfect pass for an alley-oop slam, but Roy Hibbert and Paul George pulled it off against the Bobcats on Wednesday. Jeff Taylor got completely lost trying to keep pace with George on the perimeter, and couldn’t get by…

  14. Jason Kidd fined $50K for intentionally spilling drink on the court to stop play in loss to Lakers

    Nov 28, 2013, 7:16 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    UPDATE 8:45 pm: The NBA league office has confirmed the $50,000 fine for Jason Kidd. 7:16 pm: Jason Kidd used a loophole in the rules to force a stoppage in play late in his team’s loss to the Lakers on Wednesday, and that bit of creativity is going to cost him a fair bit of…

  15. Knicks hold team meeting after suffering seventh straight loss

    Nov 28, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks lost to the Clippers on Wednesday for the team’s seventh straight defeat, one that sent them to a dismal record of 3-11 on the season. That wasn’t exactly the plan coming off of a year where New York finished with the second best record in the East, and expectations heading into the season…

  16. Will Bynym paid electric bill, bought Thanksgiving dinner for Chicago women’s shelter

    Nov 28, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Detroit Pistons

    Good on ya, Will Bynum. There are some women in Chicago trying to escape an abusive situation and turn their lives around who are thankful for Pistons reserve guard Will Bynum today — he helped keep the lights out and bought Thanksgiving dinner for them. The Detroit News has the details, talking about how Bynum…

  17. Report: Dion Waiters accused Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson of playing “buddy ball.”

    Nov 28, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Clippers

    We knew that a couple of weeks ago after another ugly loss (29 points to the Timberwolves), the Cavaliers had a team meeting and in it things got a little tense — shouting, but not fisticuffs. Not long after, Dion Waiters lost his starting spot to Matthew Dellavedova, which made sense as Waiters is shooting…

  18. The Houston Rockets sing “‘The Dreidel Song”… poorly

    Nov 28, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v New York Knicks

    Happy Hanukkah! Or make that Happy Thanksgivukkah. This year the Jewish holiday falls really early, which combined with the late Thanksgiving leads to some really odd food combinations for dinner tonight at your Jewish friends’ homes. The Houston Rockets wanted to get in the act. They doing things well on the court this year — 11-5 record,…

  19. LeBron hosting Heat players for Thanksgiving dinner in Cleveland

    Nov 28, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    It’s just part of the business — the NBA schedule can mean holidays away from home and family for players, coaches and a host of support staff. Case in point, for the Miami Heat this season both Thanksgiving and Christmas will be spent on the road. But on the road for Thanksgiving is still home…

  20. Five things I’m thankful for in the NBA today

    Nov 28, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I’m thankful for a lot of things today. I’m thankful for a job that lets me watch as much basketball as I want. I’m thankful to live in a country where this is possible (and I’m thankful for the people who defend it). I’m thankful for a family that is the best part of my…
