    Nov 20, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    With a sick mother back home and no playing time in Boston, reports surfaced on Monday that Darko Milicic had returned home to be close to his family and was considering staying there and not coming back. Doc Rivers basically confirmed that on Tuesday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. “Most likely, yes,” was C’s…

  4. Former teammate says no one likes basketball less than Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum hair

    Things haven’t been going well for Andrew Bynum since joining the Sixers. He has yet to make his debut for the team thanks to a bone bruise in his knee, and his timetable to return seems to be getting continually pushed back. And then there was the bowling. When star athletes struggle like this in…

  5. Report: Nene could return to Wizards lineup Wednesday

    Nov 20, 2012, 3:33 PM EDT

    Nene Hilario

    Well, here is some good news for Washington. And they could use it. Brazilian center Nene had been out all season (and parts of last season) battling plantar fasciitis in his foot, could return and suit up with the team Wednesday night, reports Ric Bucher, NBA analyst for Comcast Sports and NBC Sports Network (via…

  6. Mike D’Antoni says he will coach Lakers Tuesday night

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni announces he is unable to coach his new team against the Rockets, due to recovery from a knee operation, in Los Angeles

    No, this time he really means it. Mike D’Antoni told reporters Tuesday that he will be on the sidelines for the first time as Lakers coach this Tuesday night when they take on the Brooklyn Nets. He said he got 12 hours sleep last night and thought the adrenaline would carry him through the game.…

  7. Report: San Antonio shows interest in Mickael Pietrus

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    The Spurs need help at the three — starter Kawhi Leonard is out at least another week with tendonitis in his knee, then last night his backup, Stephen Jackson, broke the little finger on his shooting hand and is out at least a month. The Spurs have called up James Anderson from the D-League but…

  8. Who will be the No. 1 pick next draft? Good question.

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    If you asked your Magic 8 Ball who the No. 1 pick in the next draft would be, the answer would come up “Reply hazy, try again.” DraftExpress has UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad as the top pick as of right now, but after the NCAA was done enforcing its archaic and inconsistent sense of justice, he…

  9. Popovich calls Spurs soft and an “embarrassment” after loss

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    When it’s a grind-it-out game, the Spurs usually win. They expect to win. But Monday night the Clippers went into San Antonio, had an off night from their leading scorer (Jamal Crawford), had banged up starters, got into a defensive struggle and won. The Clippers ground down the Spurs, played good defense and made the…

  10. Dwyane Wade says Lakers slow start reminds him of Heat

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:40 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Do you remember the 9-8 Miami Heat? The ones off to a slow start after putting together a superstar team (then the players doing their part to hype the expectations at a pep rally)? The ones that had national pundits calling for Erik Spoelstra to be sent packing so that legendary coach Pat Riley could…

  11. Video: Point guard Tim Duncan takes ball coast-to-coast

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    Tim Duncan doesn’t make a lot of highlight plays compared to the NBA’s other superstars, so when he does something we’ve got to highlight it. And this showcases a lot of what Duncan does well (it has everything but a 15-foot bank shot from the wing). He gets the rebound, shows that he has some…

  12. Coach Randy Wittman rips into winless Wizards

    Nov 20, 2012, 11:27 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Dallas Mavericks

    Randy Wittman is fed up. He is the coach of the 0-9 Washington Wizards, a team with far and away the worst offense in the NBA — they are averaging 90.9 points per 100 possessions this season, that is 1.4 points worse than the historically bad, seven-win Charlotte Bobcats of last year. Neither John Wall…

  13. Stephen Curry plays through minor ankle tweak, downplays it

    Nov 20, 2012, 10:45 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Darren Collison

    Stephen Curry had probably his best game as an NBA player Monday night — 31 points, 20 of those in the fourth quarter and overtime, plus 9 assists. He won Golden State the game. He also had a minor tweak of his ankle that he played through. With most players this wouldn’t be a big…

  14. Now Dwyane Wade regrets trying to play through pain

    Nov 20, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    US-SPORTS-NBA-LA CLIPPERS-MIAMI HEAT

    Ah, hindsight. Remember last Wednesday when Dwyane Wade decided he could play through his sore foot against the Clippers? Or, maybe you remember the final two games of the road trip when Wade sat out because he had aggravated his foot injury. Like the rest of us, Wade is a lot smarter with hindsight. He…

  15. Video: Chris Paul hesitates, crosses, spins, then nails dagger for Clippers

    Nov 20, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Spurs are too good to make things easy on the Clippers — we all expected this one to go down to the wire and we got just that. Up two with 30 seconds to go in the game Chris Paul had Tony Parker up on him and drove, used a hesitation move to create…

  16. Alvin Gentry hears Marcin Gortat is frustrated, shrugs

    Nov 20, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    Marcin Gortat is getting few touches and he’s not happy. He’s getting 2.4 fewer shots per game so far this season compared to last, his usage rate dropped from 20.8 (percent of the possessions when he was on the floor) last season to 15.1 this season. Gortat vented his frustrations to a Polish publication, saying…

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being thankful you don’t live next door to the guy with 478 birds… Clippers 92, Spurs 87: The temptation is to say it’s too early to say the Clippers are legit contenders. And it is, but they have now beaten…

  18. Clippers 92, Spurs 87: Making a list, checking it twice

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Manu Ginobili

    Doubting the legitimacy of the Los Angeles Clippers is not a new or particularly uncommon practice. Despite laying waste to the Grizzlies, Spurs, Lakers and Heat in convincing fashion already, there was a sense that this would be the first true test for the Clippers. They’d be out on the road, against the team that…

  19. Three Stars of the Night: A Pacer, a rooster, and an overtime thriller

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:24 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Darren Collison

    Tonight’s three stars offer up a range of performances, all in winning efforts. One player brought his hard hat (as he typically does) to bury his opponent with power moves, another hit a big shot down the stretch to take out the hottest team in the league, and last carried his team in the 4th…

  20. Spurs Stephen Jackson breaks pinky Monday, out 4-6 weeks

    Nov 19, 2012, 10:05 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Spurs have a hole at small forward suddenly. Stephen Jackson broke the little finger on his right hand during the game with the Clipperss Monday, the team announced. That is his shooting hand, and will be out four to six weeks. Jackson had been thrust into the starting lineup because of left knee tendonitis…
