  1. Royce White still not with Rockets, attacks Wojnarowski on twitter

    Nov 24, 2012, 1:29 PM EDT

    Royce White

    One of the key lessons in life, for some people one of the hard ones to learn, is to pick your battles. When to let some things just go in pursuit of a more important, larger goal. With that in mind, we bring you two bits of news about Royce White, the No. 16 pick…

  2. Pau Gasol benched in latest Lakers loss, wants more touches in the post

    Nov 24, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    The Lakers have lost two straight after winning their first with Mike D’Antoni in place on the sidelines, and in both of those games, the frontcourt combination of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol was completely shut down. The home win over Brooklyn was solid, but the loss in Sacramento was embarrassing, and the loss in…

  3. Video: Denver Nuggets’ all-passing fast break

    Nov 24, 2012, 10:31 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee Stephen Curry

    Even coach Norman Dale would be happy with the play on this fast break… While Denver was running past Golden State Friday night to pick up their third straight win they put together this beautiful break that resulted in an and-1 for JaVale McGee. We knew Denver wanted to run going into the season but…

  4. After scoring 24, Kevin Love says he’s not close to 100 percent

    Nov 24, 2012, 9:01 AM EDT

    350x-2

    If you just look at the raw numbers, Kevin Love had a good night in Portland: 24 points and 13 rebounds. Right at the kind of numbers he put up last year as an All-Star. But this wasn’t an efficient Love leading his team (the Timberwolves lost to the Trail Blazers and a red hot…

  5. Marc Gasol crosses himself while pleading his case to a referee (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried, Marc Gasol

    Marc Gasol was called for a double-dribble violation late in the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies win over the Lakers on Friday. He swore he didn’t do it, but the replay showed otherwise, which is no big deal … except for the way he gestured to the referee while attempting to proclaim his innocence. Gasol…

  6. Lin’s Rockets put up 131 points in rout of Knicks

    Nov 24, 2012, 12:13 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Houston Rockets

    The Knicks were one of the pleasant surprises of the early season, getting out to an 8-1 start behind one of the league’s top defenses. But two games in a row they’ve had their opponent score at will — Dallas put up 114 in a win over New York on Wednesday, and the Rockets dropped…

  7. Lakers continue to struggle as they lose to league-best Grizzlies

    Nov 23, 2012, 11:37 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers players Jordan Hill, Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum sit on the bench shortly before their defeat by the Denver Nuggets in Denver

    Any spike in energy the Lakers benefited from after the team fired Mike Brown and replaced him with Mike D’Antoni seems to have been short-lived, and after a 106-98 loss in Memphis on Friday, it may now be gone altogether. No, the mere presence of D’Antoni patrolling the sidelines won’t be enough to fix the…

  8. Video: Blake Griffin with insane block on Deron Williams

    Nov 23, 2012, 8:41 PM EDT

    deron Williams

    Oh me oh my. (Well, they probably said that on the Clippers’ broadcast.) Blake Griffin is not usually the fastest with defensive rotations, but sometimes athleticism can make up for a lot. Just ask Deron Williams, who thought he had a path to the rim only to run into Griffin and get blocked — not…

  9. Kobe Bryant suggests D’Antoni is like Jackson (not so much Brown)

    Nov 23, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Mike D'Antoni

    While the Lakers were a hot mess in their loss to Sacramento — they turned the ball over like they were still running Princeton sets, Dwight Howard looked tired and slow, they let the pace drag and more — there still was something about this team now with Mike D’Antoni that was not there with…

  10. Video: Watch DeAndre Jordan’s summer workout routine

    Nov 23, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan is having a career year — 10.6 points per game on 66.2 percent shooting, he’s taken on more of the offense and is absorbing it and producing. Plus he has been improved on defense. Those kinds of improvements are earned in the off-season and here is a video of Jordan’s workouts this summer.…

  11. All nine of Paul George’s three-pointers against the Hornets (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Paul George, Roy Hibbert

    Paul George had a monster night on Wednesday, pouring in 37 points and helping his team to a much-needed overtime victory over the Hornets. The majority of those points came from three-point distance, as George hit 9-of-13 from long range to just bury New Orleans in buckets. All nine can be seen in the video…

  12. D’Antoni says Steve Blake could return Tuesday

    Nov 23, 2012, 3:39 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant and Blake celebrate beating Denver Nuggets at their NBA Western Conference playoff in Los Angeles

    Point guard play has always been a source of consternation for Lakers fans, but the issues there were supposed to be all taken care of with the offseason acquisition of Steve Nash. Nash has missed the last 10 games with a non-displaced leg fracture, however, and while the majority of his time missed due to…

  13. Kendrick Perkins wants to guard Rajon Rondo when Thunder face the Celtics

    Nov 23, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Kendrick Perkins

    Plenty of story lines are in play when the Thunder face the Celtics, as they will Friday night in Boston, due to the 2010 deal between the two teams that saw Kendrick Perkins and Jeff Green trade places. Both players were thought at the time to be untouchable members of each team’s core, with Perkins…

  14. Report: Lakers show interest in Raja Bell

    Nov 23, 2012, 2:15 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant has long been interested in adding Raja Bell as a teammate. He tried to convince Bell to sign in Los Angeles back in 2010, but Bell chose to go with Utah instead. Now, with Bell’s former coach Mike D’Antoni holding down the head coaching job in Los Angeles, the team might be interested…

  15. Raymond Felton tired of Jeremy Lin comparisons

    Nov 23, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks play the Rockets Friday night, and the matchup will mark the first time that Jeremy Lin will face his former team after making a name for himself in New York during the incredible but brief “Linsanity” run last season. When the Knicks didn’t match Houston’s free agent offer to Lin, and ended up…

  16. Chris Bosh isn’t worried about what you think he should do

    Nov 23, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh poses for a portrait during media day at the Miami Heat's home arena in Miami, Florida

    Chris Bosh doesn’t care what numbers you think he should hit. Before last season Bosh predicted he would grab 10 rebounds a game, he grabbed jus 7.9. The Heat won the NBA title. Bosh will make that trade any day of the week. So this season he isn’t worrying about the numbers, it’s the flow…

  17. Maybe Indiana is figuring out how to win without Granger

    Nov 23, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Paul George, Lance Stephenson

    For those of us who came into this season saying the Indiana Pacers were likely the second best team in the East, their ugly 3-6 start didn’t look good at all. Especially if you watched them play and saw an offense that looked as lethargic as you felt right after your third helping of Thanksgiving…

  18. Kobe Bryant has nicknamed Steve Nash “Gatsby”

    Nov 23, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Steve Nash of Canada and Kobe Bryant react during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    It was an innocuous comment in a Los Angeles Times article about Kobe Bryant’s efficient play this season, but J.E. Skeets noticed it and put it on twitter. Bringing the ball up and having me kind of initiate the offense and score and stuff like that, it’s making me work a little more than I…

  19. Jeff Green finally to face former team… and he yawns

    Nov 23, 2012, 10:42 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Last January, when Kendrick Perkins faced the Celtics for the first time since they traded him away, Jeff Green was home. Recovering from heart surgery, which was a pretty good excuse to skip the game. But that changes Friday when Green takes on the team that moved him in a still-controversial 2010 deadline deal when…

  20. Stackhouse and ‘Sheed did it, so how about a Michael Finley comeback?

    Nov 23, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Sacramento Kings

    We last saw Michael Finley as a guy who barely got off the Boston Celtics bench in the 2010 playoffs, and when he did he shot just 25 percent. After that, the former All-Star walked away from the game to become a part of the Dallas Mavericks front office staff. But the long time Maverick…
