    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant reacts during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Lakers fans have been in a state of panic since their team looked horrible in an opening night loss to the Mavericks, who (by the way)  were playing without an injured Dirk Nowitzki. Kobe Bryant and the rest of the team might be ready to join them. Although they were pretty calm after the game…

  2. James Harden’s career-high 45 leads Rockets to 2-0 start

    Nov 3, 2012, 11:40 AM EST

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Detroit Pistons

    If James Harden continues to play like he’s played in his first two games with the Rockets, the trade that brought him to Houston may eventually be seen as one of the most one-sided in NBA history. It’s early, of course, and finances were the motivation in Oklahoma City, where Harden didn’t (and wouldn’t) have…

    rasheed wallace knicks

    It was quite a night for Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden. The home team blew out the defending world champion Heat, and the fans chanted their way into seeing Rasheed Wallace take the floor for the first time as a member of the Knicks. Sheed isn’t yet in game shape, and isn’t likely to…

  4. Video: Watch DeAndre Jordan almost kick the rim on a dunk

    Nov 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    DeAndre Jordan, Dwight Howard

    DeAndre Jordan can jump high and finish. If you want him to rotate quickly on defense or knock down his free throws you are talking to the wrong guy. But if you want a guy to throw it down and give you a highlight, he’s your man. Jordan drew the foul on this play —…

    “I accept my Brian Scalabrine role. I’m cool with it.” —Knicks big man Rasheed Wallace, who has played a very limited role so far this season, as reported by Jeff Zillgitt of the USA Today.

    Nov 3, 2012, 3:16 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know who they are. They are Chris Paul’s team, Lob City, a lot of pick-and-roll, Jamal Crawford breaking guys ankles, Blake Griffin attacking the rim The Lakers are… still trying to figure it out. Through three games the Lakers have tried on more personalities than an 13-year-old girl. And none…

    So, who had the Bobcats, Magic, Bucks and Knicks all winning tonight? Of course you did. There were lots of upsets around the league, but who are the PBT Three Stars of the Night? Who is hanging out with Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan in the record books? And where in the world is Carmen…

    Anthony Davis

    UPDATE Nov. 3, 12:26 am: The Hornets have confirmed that Anthony Davis has suffered a concussion — one they describe as “mild” but there are no really mild concussions — and he will not travel to the game in Chicago, staying behind in New Orleans to undergo further tests. It sucks because Davis is from…

  10. Knicks play like adults, spank the Heat in home opener

    Nov 2, 2012, 11:23 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The advanced age of the Knicks has been a source of comedy this offseason, but the Miami Heat probably don’t think the Knicks are much of a joke after getting blown out, 104-84, at Madison Square Garden. The Knicks may be short on speed and athleticism with their role players, but it’s evident already that…

It happened in the third…

  12. Steve Nash will sit out for Lakers. Welcome to the Steve Blake era.

    Lakers Steve Nash smiles as he plays in the Lakers season opening game against  Dallas

    As we pretty much all expected, Steve Nash will not suit up for the Lakers Friday night against the Clippers, the contusion on his shin still limiting movement too much, Lakers coach Mike Brown confirmed before the game on Friday. Steve Blake will start, and Brown said both Chris Duhon and Darius Morris could see…

  13. Luis Scola: “We’re not a cool team. We’re not a pretty team.”

    Nov 2, 2012, 7:31 PM EST

    scola-suns

    When the Houston Rockets used the amnesty provision on Luis Scola, it was a pretty odd move. The Rockets were obviously juggling the numbers to make offers to both Omer Asik and Jeremy Lin this offseason, but it was still a little alarming to see a player of Scola’s caliber get cast aside for nothing…

  14. None other than Warren Buffett praises LeBron’s business savvy

    Nov 2, 2012, 7:08 PM EST

    LeBron James

    LeBron James has never made a secret of his desire to be a billionaire, which when he was younger came off like some of his other boasts — the ramblings of person who has never really had to deal with the real world. But things seem to be changing. On the court we have seen…

  15. Eric Gordon says doctor told him 4-6 to return, no surgery

    Nov 2, 2012, 5:55 PM EST

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon wanted another opinion on his knee injury, and that doctor says to wait longer. But that no surgery is needed, contrary to an earlier report. When there are conflicting reports out there the best strategy is to go with the best source. In the case of Gordon’s knee, Marc Spears of Yahoo spoke…

    Nov 2, 2012, 5:04 PM EST

    Lakers starters walk onto the court after a timeout during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    If you ask five people what’s wrong with the Lakers, you’re likely to get five different answers. That’s what happens when a team with that caliber of talent opens the season 0-2. There are simply too many things to pick at for there to only be one thing wrong. That said, the Lakers issues aren’t…

  17. Bucks Mbah a Moute to miss at least two more weeks

    Nov 2, 2012, 4:20 PM EST

    Mbah a Moute

    The Milwaukee Bucks miss Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. They want him back, the healthy Mbah a Moute from a couple seasons ago. The one that is near the top of wing defenders in the league. The one that does the little things on offense, cutting baseline off the ball while the defense is still focused…

  18. “It doesn’t look good” for Nash to play for Lakers Friday

    Nov 2, 2012, 3:12 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown (R) chats to Steve Nash of Canada during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks in their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Officially Steve Nash is still listed as doubtful and is a game-time decision for the Lakers when they take on the Clippers Friday night. But if you just want to go ahead and move him into the “not going to play” column, go ahead. Nobody is going to blame you. Here is what Mike Bresnahan…

  19. Andrew Bogut will not play second night of back-to-backs

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:52 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut is back on an NBA court — he played 18 minutes for the Warriors in their season opener against Phoenix, hitting four of his six shots and adding six rebounds, generally playing pretty well. But the Warriors are going to go slow with Bogut, not rush him back. They have to think long…

  20. Bobcats, Augustin had a free agency flap you didn’t notice

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    D.J. Augustin

    It is the NBA’s equivalent of a tree falling in the forest — if the Bobcats have a free agency flap will anyone notice? Apparently it’s not just the superstar players — your Ray Allens and Dwight Howards — who have flaps with their teams. Who move on because of it. We just don’t noticed.…
