    Moe Harkless

    On a night where the Hornets had the big highlight — they snapped their 11-game losing streak — we still got a little glimpse of why the Orlando Magic and other teams were high on Mo Harkless around the draft. The guy can get up. Robin Lopez, thank you for posing for the poster.

  2. Rudy Gay not with Grizzlies due to personal reasons

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:57 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    Rudy Gay is not with the Memphis Grizzlies for their game at home against the Sixers on Wednesday, according to a report from the Associated Press. The team listed “personal reasons” for Gay’s absence, with no additional information being conveyed at the time. Gay started the Grizzlies last game against the Rockets before the team…

  3. Carmelo Anthony, Raymond Felton out for Knicks Wednesday

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:10 PM EDT

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony reacts after teammate Marcus Camby fell into him, after going to the basket against the Los Angeles Lakers during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Carmelo Anthony was brilliant in the Knicks 100-94 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday, pouring in 34 points, 24 of which came in the second half. Anthony played over 43 minutes and physically battled Metta World peace for many of them, and that doesn’t come without taking its toll. Anthony will be out for Wednesday…

  4. League fines Denver’s Jordan Hamilton $25,000 for cursing at fans.

    It was a frustrating night for Jordan Hamilton, and it’s going to cost him. With 3:50 left in the fourth quarter of a game that had been decided long before (the Clippers blew out the Nuggets), Jordan Hamilton filled the wing then caught the bounce pass on the fast break and went to the hoop,…

  5. Deron Williams out for Nets Wednesday with sore wrist

    Dec 26, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    Just when you thought the Nets offense couldn’t get any worse comes this news: Deron Williams will be out for the Nets on Wednesday night due to a sore wrist, something first reported by Howard Beck of the New York Times. The Nets are in Milwaukee to take on the Bucks. Expect C.J. Watson to…

  6. Not surprisingly, Nowitzki to come off bench again Wednesday

    Dec 26, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Elton Brand

    Dirk Nowitzki didn’t look too bad in his surprising return from the injured list on Saturday night, racking up eight points in his usual efficient manner. What did look different is that he looked winded at points despite playing just 20 minutes. Which means it’s not a shock he will come off the bench for…

  7. DeMarcus Cousins not with Kings in Portland tonight

    Dec 26, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    The team’s suspension was ended but that apparently doesn’t mean DeMarcus Cousins is back with the Kings. Cousins practiced with the team on Monday but is not with the team now in Portland for a Wednesday night game, tweets Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee. (Tyreke Evans is out as well as he recovers from…

  8. NBA postpones Chicago at Indiana Wednesday due to weather

    Dec 26, 2012, 4:52 PM EDT

    Christmas Weather

    There’s a blizzard hitting Indiana and specifically the Indianapolis area hard right now — up to a foot of snow had fallen as of this writing in some areas with more to come, leading to a host of traffic accidents, roads closing, shopping malls closing (on one of the busiest days of the year) and…

  9. Ryan Anderson says Magic did not try to keep him last summer

    Dec 26, 2012, 3:36 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Jarrett Jack

    New GM Rob Hennigan’s plan in Orlando was pretty clear — trade Dwight Howard for prospects, get young and get cheap and free up cap space to start chasing free agents in 2014 (he might have pictured a high lottery pick in there too, but Jacque Vaughn has his team overachieving and playing hard). Hennigan’s…

  10. No, the Lakers are not adding Derek Fisher. Or anyone else.

    Dec 26, 2012, 3:02 PM EDT

    fisher-kaman-flagrant-2

    Steve Nash is back for the Lakers and that means less Chris Duhon and Darius Morris. Which is good thing for the Lakers offense. But plenty of Lakers fans saw Derek Fisher ask out of the Dallas Mavericks and say, “we should totally pick him up, he could help us.” Which is absolutely not true,…

  11. Quote of the Day: Doc Rivers compliments Sullinger. Sort of.

    Dec 26, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers looks on in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in New York

    “Jared was wonderful. He’s such a smart player. When you watch him, you don’t see rookie. You just see a big fat guy playing basketball.” —Doc Rivers, Celtics coach, throwing some kind words toward Jared Sullinger… sort of. Quote via the Boston Globe. Sullinger had a 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting, plus 7 rebounds in…

  12. With Nash on court, Lakers offense full of options

    Dec 26, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash celebrate after teammate Pau Gasol scored against the Knicks during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Lakers are 2-0 since the return of Steve Nash, both wins over quality teams in Golden State and New York. Let’s not go overboard with what this means — it means they won two games in December. It doesn’t speak to the playoffs. But we are starting to see just how things open up…

  13. NBA Christmas Day television ratings down from post-lockout tip-off, up from two years ago

    Last year, following an ugly lockout, the NBA returned to action on Christmas Day with its first games being the best matchups shown on national television. Fans said “what lockout?” and watched in record numbers. This Christmas, with one-third of the NBA season gone? Numbers were down slightly over last year but up from a…

  14. As if you didn’t see them enough, here are some NBA ads from Christmas

    Dec 26, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    It’s not exactly the Super Bowl, but on Christmas day you can usually expect to see some new ads featuring NBA stars. Of course it happened this year, and we have already showed you the Blake Griffin one, his latest for KIA. Here were a couple other new ones featuring Chris Paul and Kevin Durant…

  15. Amar’e Stoudemire could return to Knicks on Jan. 1

    Dec 26, 2012, 11:50 AM EDT

    Fashion's Night Out At SAKS Fifth Avenue

    Could the New York Knicks ring in 2013 with Amar’e Stoudemire? The New York Knicks host the Portland Trail Blazers on New Years Day (which is fine because nobody in New York cares about college football anyway). And Stoudemire told Al Iannazzone of Newsday that could be against the Trail Blazers (via Sulia): Amar’e Stoudemire…

  16. Wizards sign point guards Shelvin Mack, Garrett Temple

    Dec 26, 2012, 10:26 AM EDT

    George Hill, Shelvin Mack

    The biggest problem with the Wizards recent moves at point guard is that it does not involve the name John Wall. Until it does, the Wizards are spinning their wheels, stuck in the mud with the worst offense in the NBA. Washington did make some changes at point guard — Shaun Livingston is out (he’s…

  17. Cavaliers claim Shaun Livingston off waivers, release Sloan

    Dec 26, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    Shaun Livingston Deron Williams

    Shaun Livingston was let go by the Washington Wizards last week but got a Christmas Day gift from the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland claimed him off waivers and Livingston is going to get the chance to be Kyrie Irving’s backup, reports the Beacon Journal. Right now that job often falls to rookie Dion Waiters, who like…

  18. Pau Gasol with the monster slam dunk to seal Lakers win over Knicks (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol

    LOS ANGELES — With the game on the line and the Lakers clinging to a three-point lead with possession of the ball, it wasn’t Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, or Steve Nash who found themselves taking the final shot. No, that honor went to Pau Gasol, whose diminished role on a newly-stacked team this season hasn’t…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Rockets, Celtics, Clippers get Christmas blowouts

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:35 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while running to the store to buy more double-AA batteries for those Christmas toys…. Celtics 93, Nets 76: The Nets are not a good defensive team, rather they are prone to lapses, like the second quarter when Boston put up 34…

  20. Mike D’Antoni says Carmelo Anthony is having an MVP season

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    mike d'antoni carmelo

    LOS ANGELES — Mike D’Antoni coached Carmelo Anthony for parts of each of the last two seasons while owning the head coaching job with the New York Knicks, so he knows as well as anyone how much Anthony can dominate a game at times. Part of the reason D’Antoni ended up resigning as Knicks head…
