  1. Magic players and coaches hold team meeting to address issues

    Nov 29, 2012, 8:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    On the surface, this doesn’t seem to be that newsworthy; after all, shouldn’t players and coaches sit down and hash things out if the team is getting blown out on a regular basis? Maybe, but that’s not necessarily standard operating procedure in the NBA. There are few practices in between the heavy slate of games…

  2. Report: Mickael Pietrus to sign with the Raptors

    Nov 29, 2012, 7:30 PM EST

    Mickael Pietrus

    Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the situation in Toronto, where the Raptors are 3-13 on the season, definitely fits the description. That might explain the team’s latest personnel move, which is the decision to bring in Mickael Pietrus to help turn things around. Sam Amick of USA Today reports that the Raptors have…

    Nov 29, 2012, 7:02 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, James Harden

    It was a rough night for James Harden and the Rockets on Wednesday, where the Thunder’s former Sixth Man of the Year wasn’t able to do much of anything against his former teammates. The Thunder brought the pain early with these two blocks from Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka that occurred midway through the first…

  4. Suns send rookie Kendall Marshall to the D-League

    Nov 29, 2012, 6:30 PM EST

    Thomas Robinson, Kendall Marshall

    The Phoenix Suns have assigned Kendall Marshall to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League, according to a team release. Marshall was the 13th overall pick in this year’s draft, but has been unable to crack the rotation with Goran Dragic and Sebastian Telfair being more legitimate options while the team’s season is still…

  5. Kyle Lowry says Raptors not dead but “five feet under”

    Nov 29, 2012, 6:27 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors' Lowry reacts after missing a free throw against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    So, you’re saying there’s a chance? Off to a 3-13 start, the Raptors are not only disappointing the optimists in Toronto that thought they could sneek into the playoffs, they are disappointing the pessimists who didn’t expect them to be this bad. Their defense, which kept them competitive for much of last season, is giving…

  6. Rajon Rondo suspended two games for fight with Nets; Wallace, Garnett fined

    Nov 29, 2012, 4:59 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo got off lighter than many expected, apparently because the fight Wednesday between the Celtics and Nets was a lot of pushing without an actual punch thrown. Rondo has been suspended two games by the league for the incident, Celtics GM Danny Ainge first announced on WEEI radio in Boston then confirmed by the…

  7. Duncan, Parker, Ginobili all to sit vs. Heat Thursday

    Nov 29, 2012, 4:38 PM EST

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker

    Well, this Thursday night showdown between two of the league’s best just got a lot less interesting. San Antonio is taking on Miami Thursday night in what is the Spurs second night of a back-to-back and their fourth game in five nights, plus it is the final game of a six-game road trip. So as…

  8. Harlem Globetrotter with one serious backboard-shattering dunk

    Nov 29, 2012, 3:46 PM EST

    A player of the Harlem Globetrotters dun

    Now that is how you shatter a backboard. That is former University of Cincinatti star and current Harlem Globetrotter Darnell Wilks with the truly impressive dunk during a Globetrotters game in Ecuador. In the USA there are breakaway rims and major arenas have another backboard set up in back to be wheeled out and put…

  9. Rajon Rondo meets with league officials regarding fight

    Nov 29, 2012, 3:38 PM EST

    Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo shouts instructions from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    The suspension is coming. Probably a long one. But the league is doing its due dilligence before rendering a verdict out of the fight between Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries, between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night. Rondo met with league officials Thursday, tweets A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. #Celticstalk: Rondo spoke with…

  10. Gerald Wallace gets flopping warning for move on ‘Melo

    Nov 29, 2012, 2:55 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Yup, that’s a flop. Brooklyn’s Gerald Wallace was trying to get back into the play and harass Carmelo Anthony, Wallace made contact and Anthony used his elbow to create some space, but the Wallace sold it like he was going for an Oscar nomination. This is Wallace’s first warning. There is no fine, unless he…

  11. Mavs Carlisle thinking of starting Fisher, benching Collison

    Nov 29, 2012, 2:29 PM EST

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    Texas was not one of the states that passed legalized marijuana. Right? Because I’m generally a pretty big Rick Carlisle fan, I think he makes smart decisions as a coach. And I get he is frustrated with Darren Collison and his play, particularly on defense. And Collison is battling a finger injury. Collison was benched…

  12. Brook Lopez out two games (at least) with foot sprain

    Nov 29, 2012, 1:56 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Andray Blatche, it’s time for your close-up. Blatche will become the Nets starting center the next two games because Brook Lopez will be out with a mild sprain of his right foot, tweets Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. This could be a bigger blow if Kris Humphries is suspended for his part…

  13. Mavericks to release Troy Murphy to make way for Fisher

    Nov 29, 2012, 1:28 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Dallas Mavericks

    The Troy Murphy era in Dallas lasted 14 games. The Mavericks are expected to release Murphy on Thursday, reports ESPN Dallas and multiple other sources. He is being let go to make way for guard Derek Fisher, who is supposed to come in and stabilize the Mavericks backcourt (they are in for a shock, but…

  14. Andrew Bynum in nasty lawsuit with California neighbors

    Nov 29, 2012, 12:45 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Nothing brings out the best in people like disputes with neighbors. And by “best” I mean most petty, childish, scuzzy behavior possible. For seven years Andrew Bynum has owned a home in Westchester, an area of Los Angeles not too far from the Lakers practice facility (the Lakers traded him to Philadelphia last summer), and…

  15. Hasheem Thabeet’s strange ejection, then reversal by refs

    Nov 29, 2012, 11:39 AM EST

    Hasheem Thabeet, James Harden, Omer Asik

    Hasheem Thabeet was taking part in the block party the Thunder were bringing to James Harden on Wednesday night (Russell Westbrook had the best Harden block with Serge Ibaka a close second. But in the second quarter, when Thabeet had blocked consecutive Harden shots, the two jawed a bit. And referee Marc Davis was there.…

  16. Doc Rivers: “We’re a soft team; we have no toughness”

    Nov 29, 2012, 10:50 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Wednesday night after another Celtics loss, Doc Rivers was relaying a lesson most of us learned somewhere along the way: It’s not the tough guys that get in fights. The Celtics have lost three of their last five, were pushed around by the Nets and more importantly are a bottom 10 defensive team in the…

  17. Lead referee explains what they saw, decisions on Nets/Celtics fight

    Nov 29, 2012, 10:09 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    NBA officials rarely speak to the media after games (there actually is a guard outside their dressing room door), but they make exceptions in special cases. The fight between the Celtics and Nets — the one started when Rajon Rondo went at and shoved Kris Humphries and spilled out into the stands — is a…

  18. Video: Stan Van Gundy, Chris Mannix talk Pau Gasol trade

    Nov 29, 2012, 9:15 AM EST

    Pau Gasol

    Former Magic coach Stan Van Gundy knows a thing or two about fitting in with Dwight Howard, and like most coaches around the league he realizes that talent wins. He also realizes Pau Gasol is talented. And so when asked by NBC Sports Radio host Erik Kuselias about it Van Gundy sounds like a coach…

  19. Expect Rajon Rondo to get lengthy suspension for fight

    Nov 29, 2012, 8:33 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    The NBA league office doesn’t take kindly to its players fighting on the court. It really doesn’t take kindly to said fights spilling over into the very-expensive seats of people who sit courtside at NBA games. That’s what happened when a fight broke out between the Celtics and Nets Wednesday night, when Rajon Rondo came…

  20. Report: Stoudemire willing to come off bench for Knicks

    Nov 29, 2012, 7:59 AM EST

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks have the best offense in the NBA right now, scoring 111.5 points per 100 possessions — they are shooting the ball well and turning it over on fewer possessions than any other team in the Association. And they are doing it all with Carmelo Anthony playing the four. The power forward…
