  1. Derek Fisher to sign with the Mavericks

    Nov 28, 2012, 11:06 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher

    Derek Fisher was unceremoniously traded from the Lakers to the Rockets last season, before ultimately signing with the Thunder in mid-March. He played meaningful minutes while in OKC, and averaged over 22 minutes per game in the team’s Finals loss at the hands of the Miami Heat. Fisher’s services were not retained by the Thunder,…

  2. The streak is dead — Wizards win first game of season. But they made it hard on themselves.

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Washington Wizards

    Break up the Wizards. Okay, maybe we’re not there yet. But Washington’s 12-game losing streak to start the season came to an end at home with an 84-82 win over Portland. They did it with 19 points from Jordan Crawford off the bench, with Trevor Ariza being efficient (14 points on 6-of-9 shooting) and with…

  3. Suns somehow lose by 40 to Pistons

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:29 PM EDT

    Jared Dudley, Brandon Knight, Tayshaun Prince

    It isn’t easy to lose big in the NBA. You have to really work at it, the same way you need to work at securing a victory by even the smallest of margins, especially on the road. But the Suns found a way in Detroit on Wednesday, losing by 40 points to a Pistons team…

  4. Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries ejected after altercation spills into the stands (VIDEO)

    Nov 28, 2012, 9:02 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Jose Calderon

    Late in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s game in Boston between the Celtics and the Nets, Kris Humphries committed a hard foul on Kevin Garnett, with the Nets leading by 16 points at the time. Rajon Rondo took exception to the contact, a hit that landed above the shoulders and knocked Garnett to the…

    I don’t know what I want for Christmas anymore because the people at Old Spice just gave me everything I have ever dreamed of.

  6. Ricky Rubio cleared for full-contact practice

    Nov 28, 2012, 7:43 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio shoots a free throw during their NBA game against Los Angeles Clippers

    We told you over the weekend about Ricky Rubio and his scheduled visit with his doctor early this week, which was to hopefully be nothing more than a formality in getting him back on the court practicing for an earlier-than-expected return to action. It appears that all went well, as Rubio has been cleared to…

  7. Steve Blake out at least two more weeks with abdominal strain

    Nov 28, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    The Lakers point guard situation will continue to be an unresolved struggle for a little while longer, as Steve Blake will miss at least two more weeks due to the abdominal strain that’s already sidelined him for the last eight games, according to a team release. An MRI on Wednesday confirmed the need for Blake…

  8. Wednesday And-1 links: Who has the better Eurostep, Wade or Ginobili?

    Nov 28, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

    Marvin Williams, Paul Millsap, Manu Ginobili

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Texans love barbecue. • Who has the better Eurostep move, Dwyane Wade or…

  9. Bogut had microfracture surgery on ankle; may be out months more

    Nov 28, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut, Marc Gasol

    UPDATE 5:07 pm: Andrew Bogut and Warriors GM Bob Meyers met with the media on Wednesday afternoon to try and clear the air, to say they were all on the same page and always have been. That they knew it would take time for Bogut’s ankle to heal after a serious surgery and there was…

  10. Wizards have closed-door meeting, vent concerns to coach

    Nov 28, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    If the Washington Wizards beat the Portland Trail Blazers Wednesday night, it’s most likely because Nene returned from his foot injury and played well (he was +31 in limited minutes this season). Talent is what wins in the NBA. But you have to use that talent wisely, and how to do that seems to be…

  11. Mike D’Antoni: “I shouldn’t have gone to New York”

    Nov 28, 2012, 4:32 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike D’Antoni — along with Steve Nash and the “seven seconds or less” Phoenix Suns — didn’t win a ring but they have changed the face of the NBA. Now you see the NBA champion Miami Heat going with a guy thought of as a forward at center (as do other teams), like the Suns…

  12. Report: Billups to return to Clippers Wednesday, will start

    Nov 28, 2012, 3:21 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Most players who have a major Achilles tendon injury at age 36 are done. It’s time to walk away from the game, spend more time with your family and your golf game. Not Chauncey Billups. Not Mr. Big Shot. The Clippers guard was going to leave the game on his own terms and worked hard…

  13. Knicks Jason Kidd out again Wednesday, maybe much longer

    Nov 28, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd didn’t play for the Knicks Monday night in Brooklyn due to a bad back. Now he has been officially announced out for Wednesday night’s game in Milwaukee. We shouldn’t be shocked Kidd misses a few games, he’s not young. It feels like his rookie season with the Mavericks Mark Aguirre was in the…

  14. Byron Scott is brutally honest in assessing Cavs’ latest loss (VIDEO)

    Nov 28, 2012, 1:24 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tuesday night wasn’t a good one for the Cleveland Cavaliers. They managed just 78 points in a home loss to the Suns, and shot 35.7 percent from the field, including a dismal 2-of-15 from three-point range, while committing 18 turnovers and getting outscored in the paint by 14. Dion Waiters was 7-of-20, Jeremy Pargo was…

  15. Kobe dismissive of Lakers’ very real free throw issues

    Nov 28, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    It was another dreadful performance from the seemingly all-or-nothing Lakers on Tuesday, one where the team managed just 77 points in a loss to the Pacers. There were 20 more points available to L.A. at the free throw line, but as has been the case all season long, the Lakers simply could not convert on…

  16. Michael Jordan’s shorts ruffle feathers at stuffy Miami country club. Good.

    Nov 28, 2012, 12:41 PM EDT

    Jordan golf

    Some will look at this as a story of Michael Jordan and his feeling of entitlement. And truth be told there is some of that here. Jordan wears his entitlement like a Rolex. But if Jordan is pissing off some up-tight, old rich people in Miami then I’m good with it. It all comes down to…

  17. Rockets interim coach says Jeremy Lin “got his swagger back”

    Nov 28, 2012, 12:14 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    Jeremy Lin didn’t grab the headlines Tuesday night when the Rockets played the Raptors, but he did score 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting and add 10 assists. It followed a game against the Knicks where Lin did grab the headlines going in and he scored 13 points. Those two good games followed seven games in…

  18. Ricky Rubio: Backyard Wrestler (VIDEO)

    Nov 28, 2012, 11:49 AM EDT

    ricky-rubio-rising-stars-challenge

    Here’s the latest spot from Foot Locker and adidas, showcasing Ricky Rubio in gear that he can take from the court to the club as an “international icon.” What Rubio doesn’t do with his time off, obviously, is become a backyard wrestler. But in case you needed a visual of what that might look like,…

  19. James Harden says playing Thunder will be ‘just another game’

    Nov 28, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    The Rockets will play the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Wednesday, which will mark the first time that James Harden will lace ‘em up against the team he couldn’t come to terms with on a contract extension shortly before the start of the season. As a result, OKC traded Harden to Houston, where he’s been…

  20. Andrew Bogut says ankle “just not right yet.” No timetable.

    Nov 28, 2012, 11:24 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    There were all sorts of reports Andrew Bogut could get back on the court for the Warriors this week. Listen to him talk in that video and it sounds like it could be a while, and certainly not this week. Bogut had ankle surgery last April and is still dealing with pain and discomfort in…
