    Grant Hill, Josh McRoberts

    The Orlando Magic are just 13-23 on the season, but they have some surprising signature wins that give the fan base hope as the team rebuilds without a superstar on the roster, and with a first-year head coach running the show.

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat - Game One

    The Knicks have struggled a bit as of late, and have had seemingly nothing but bad news on the injury front.

  4. Damian Lillard drops a career high 37 on the Warriors (VIDEO)

    Jan 12, 2013, 4:00 PM EST

    Damian Lillard, Isaiah Thomas

    These are some pretty tasty Damian Lillard highlights from the Blazers loss on Friday night at the hands of the Warriors. Lillard essentially goes bonkers from distance, pulling up from long range time and time again and draining three-pointers as if they were 15-foot jumpers. He went 7-of-12 from behind the arc, and was 15-of-25…

    Jan 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Steve Novak

    Steve Novak has adopted the “discount double check” as his go-to celebration for hitting big three-pointers. It’s the same one Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has made famous on the football field, and then even more so after appearing in a series of insurance commercials. The celebration is weak by NBA standards, but hey,…

    Jan 12, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Gerald Wallace

    Gerald Wallace has earned the nickname “Crash” over the years for a reason. He consistently and fearlessly takes flight around the rim, with little or no regard for his own personal safety. Early in Friday night’s win over the Suns, Wallace went up for a basket, but was fouled by P.J. Tucker in mid-air, and…

    “I told the team that the biggest thing is that our season starts Sunday,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said after the latest in a parade of losses. “And we have got one run and have one shot at it and they need to get ready mentally and physically.” That is the sound of a desperate…

    Friday night Jordan Hill showed up in street clothes to Staples Center and didn’t look good limping down the hall. Slowly. It hurt to watch him walk. Turns out it was with good reason — he needs hip surgery and will be out for the season, the Lakers reported. After seeing the team doctor and…

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    As we told you earlier, the sale of the Kings won’t be a done deal until it is actually a done deal — contracts signed, press conferences convened, a river of tears flowing through the streets of Sacramento, etc. Shortly after the initial report of the deal being done came out, our own Aaron Bruski…

  19. Report: Dallas also has interest in signing Greg Oden

    Jan 11, 2013, 5:45 PM EST

    Greg Oden

    The fact that teams would seriously consider signing Greg Oden to a contract, a guy that hasn’t played in the NBA since 2009 and missed most of four seasons before that, speaks to two things: 1) The dearth of quality big men in the NBA. 2) Just how good Greg Oden was back in the…
