  1. Bobcats trade Matt Carroll to Hornets for Hakim Warrick

    Nov 13, 2012, 6:06 PM EST

    Carroll_Matt

    UPDATE 6:06 pm: And it’s official, with the Bobcats confirmed that the trade has gone through. These two veteran bench players may bet a little more run and a chance to show what they can do in their new surroundings in a way they did not so far this season. Both teams get a little…

  2. Lakers GM Kupchak says team wanted D’Antoni, didn’t think Jackson would want job

    Nov 13, 2012, 4:54 PM EST

    Mitch Kupchak

    Phil Jackson was under the impression that the Lakers job was his if he wanted it — and it wasn’t just his impression. Mike D’Antoni thought it was Jackson’s job, everyone around the Lakers thought it was Jackson’s job, and Lakers fans thought it was Jackson’s job. The Lakers front office wanted Mike D’Antoni. And…

  3. Report: Lakers test trade market for Blake, Duhon. No takers yet. Shocking.

    Nov 13, 2012, 3:58 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Steve Nash being reunited with Mike D’Antoni is not happening as soon as Lakers fans (or D’Antoni) would like — Nash said on Tuesday he could be out another week or two as his leg heals. But that isn’t stopping the Lakers from shopping around two of the other point guards on the roster. The…

  4. Video: James Harden high-fives invisible teammates

    Nov 13, 2012, 3:18 PM EST

    James Harden

    You gotta love James Harden. Here the beard hits his technical free throw and then walks forward to high-five all the nonexistent guys in the lane. Classic. At least Harden is keeping his sense of humor as the Rockets struggle to find their way. Hat tip to SLAM.

  5. Winderman: Lakers latest in trend to go with system regardless of personnel

    Nov 13, 2012, 3:06 PM EST

    New York Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni reacts during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    The system coaches used to be the minority, it is among the reasons opposing coaches marveled all those years at Jerry Sloan, how his teams did one thing well and did it over and over and over, even after Stockton and Malone left the building. The rest? They mostly adjusted. Oh, Phil Jackson was wedded…

  6. Thibodeau says Derrick Rose running, cutting, on schedule

    Nov 13, 2012, 2:13 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose listens to coach Tom Thibodeau during their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Chicago

    In an almost reflexive manner, every time someone from the Bulls talks about Derrick Rose’s recovery they add “we’re not rushing him.” And they are not. But Tom Thibodeau said he expects to see the Bull’s MVP back this season, as he told Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com. “I do,” Thibodeau said prior to his team’s…

  7. Quote of the Day: Jamison thinks Lakers’ drama is nothing

    Nov 13, 2012, 1:34 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison, Lamar Odom

    “I dealt with LeBron leaving Cleveland and guys bringing firearms in the locker room. This is mild.” —Veteran Lakers forward Antawn Jamison, discussing the firing of Mike Brown, the flirtation with Phil Jackson and the hiring of Mike D’Antoni, courtesy the twitter of Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. Just as a crash course refresher, Jamison was…

  8. Minnesota’s Budinger out three months after knee surgery

    Nov 13, 2012, 1:18 PM EST

    Chase Budinger, Taj Gibson

    We knew what happened to Chase Budinger — he tore the lateral meniscus in his left knee Saturday while playing the Bulls. What we didn’t know was how long he will be out. Now we do, via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network. After knee surgery today, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Chase…

  9. Injuries have Timberwolves considering roster additions

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:53 PM EST

    Mickael Pietrus

    Kevin Love’s hand. Ricky Rubio’s knee. Chase Budinger’s knee. Brandon Roy’s knees. J.J. Barea’s foot. Now after Monday night you can add Nikola Pekovic’s ankle to the list. Minnesota’s long list of injuries is long and serious. It’s a huge credit to coach Rick Adelman that the Timberwolves are 5-2 this young season. But they…

  10. D’Antoni will coach Lakers Friday, understands fans aren’t happy

    Nov 13, 2012, 11:52 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Washington Wizards

    Politicians do this all the time — for their first interview after a big bit of news or awkward revelation, their first interview is with a friendly media outlet that is not going to pepper them with hard questions. Mike D’Antoni’s first interview in Los Angeles came Tuesday morning — with Ryan Seacrest. Yes, American…

  11. Jim Buss has Lakers power, kept it and used it to hire D’Antoni

    Nov 13, 2012, 11:14 AM EST

    Phil Jackson

    The idea Phil Jackson was the clear frontrunner for the Lakers head coaching job was not some media creation or fan fiction — everyone around the team said Jackson was the lead candidate. From the start if felt odd — if you were around and felt the distaste between Jackson and Jim Buss (the guy…

  12. Report: Heat now on top of Kenyon Martin’s list

    Nov 13, 2012, 10:23 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martins remains a free agent. He had gone from saying he wanted more than the league minimum and was only going to play for a contender to saying he will play for the league minimum and he will play for anyone. But he’d still like to be in Miami, according to Ira Winderman of…

  13. Video: Russell Westbrook passes to self off Brandon Knight

    Nov 13, 2012, 9:15 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    I think this is my favorite play from last night. Tie game, inside five minutes in the fourth quarter and Russell Westbrook does a very Westbrook thing and gets caught in the air with nowhere to go with the ball. So he improvised, threw it off Brandon Knight, got it back and scored the layup.…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s all about the Boston offense

    Brandon Bass, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Jason Terry

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being scared by the idea of a Hillary Clinton decorating show…. Jazz 140, Raptors 133 (3OT): Utah got its first road win but the Raptors made them really work for it — they needed the second three of Al Jefferson’s…

    Raptors' Bargnani goes to the basket against Jazz's Favors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    If you didn’t get to watch the Jazz and Raptors triple overtime thriller Monday… well, sorry. You can read our recap of the game. But it’s not quite the same. Here’s some video from the Air Canada Centre — Utah’s Al Jefferson hitting only the second three of his career to send the game to…

  16. Suns overcome another big deficit in comeback win over Nuggets

    Nov 13, 2012, 2:36 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — It’s getting to be a habit, and one the Suns are desperately trying to break. But for the third straight game, Phoenix fell behind by double digits early, only to rally late to make it a contest. Monday night, the team got its second win in three of those tries by coming back…

  17. Three Stars: We are all witnesses

    Nov 13, 2012, 2:02 AM EST

    LeBron James

    What a night. We saw Utah and Toronto battle it out in a triple-overtime slugfest high on theatrics. We saw the Pistons put a scare into the Thunder before collapsing, and the Bulls make things interesting against the Celtics. There were a lot of memorable moments from tonight’s games, but like anyone who has stood…

  18. Video: Jason Maxiell sends Russell Westbrook’s layup to the moon

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:52 AM EST

    Maxiell_Jason

    The Pistons blew a double-digit lead at home to the Thunder, remaining winless at 0-8 on the season. Things obviously aren’t going great in Detroit, but at the very least, they were aesthetically pleasing tonight for the first time in a long time. Jason Maxiell was a big part of that. Although he is crazy…

  19. Game of the Night: Utah outlasts Toronto in triple-overtime thriller

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:28 AM EST

    Jazz's Jefferson celebrates with team mate Foye after Jefferson scored a three point shot to tie the game at the buzzer against the Raptors at the end of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Ask a Schoolhouse Rock aficionado or a Utah Jazz fan tonight, and they’ll let you in on a little secret: 3 really is the magic number. The Utah Jazz traveled to Toronto to take on the Raptors, and the triple-overtime battle that ensued was not only the game of the night, but probably the game of the…

  20. Players union appeals DeMarcus Cousins suspension

    Nov 12, 2012, 9:28 PM EST

    dcousins

    DeMarcus Cousins did an immature thing — he heard Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliot was hard on him during the telecast and came out of the locker room in his uniform to confront him “in a hostile manner.” The league is not fond of players confronting media partners like that, so Cousins got a two-game suspension,…
