  1. Video: Atlanta’s Kyle Korver drains game-winning three

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:19 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    Kyle Korver doesn’t need much space, and with the Hawks down two and seven seconds on the clock Devin Harris pushes it up then makes a veteran move to become the screener and hand off to Korver coming on a curl… and did I mention he doesn’t need much space? The Wizards had a chance…

  2. Video: Dalembert with between-the-legs assist to Monta Ellis

    Nov 21, 2012, 9:32 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Samuel Dalembert, not exactly known for his prowess at the offensive end of the court, but this is a pretty sweet dish to the cutting Monta Ellis for the Bucks. As for the Heat defense on this play… well, we’ve discussed the Heat defense this season. They get a pass as champions… for a while.…

  3. Kevin Love is back. To start for Timberwolves Wednesday.

    Nov 21, 2012, 7:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    This is a bigger surprise than the things that will come out of your Uncle Phil’s mouth at the family Thanksgiving dinner once he’s had a few too many beers. But Timberwolves fans don’t care because this is great news: Kevin Love has been put on the active roster and will start for the Timberwolves…

  4. Kyle Lowry back starting for Raptors, Calderon to bench

    Nov 21, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

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

    Kyle Lowry looked rusty in his first game back from injury Tuesday night against Philly, (5-of-14 shooting) but he also looked aggressive. He attacked. Jose Calderon was what he has been most of the season — solid. Dependable. When it came time for Toronto Raptors coach Dwyane Casey to decide who was starting Wednesday against…

  5. Reggie Evans becomes the first player fined for flopping under league’s new rules (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2012, 5:25 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    UPDATE 5:17 p.m. ET: The Brooklyn Nets Reggie Evans has in fact been fined $5000 for this incident, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Nobody is shocked. He deserved it. 4:44 p.m. ET: Given the fact that Reggie Evans was prominently featured in the video the league showed to teams and media before the season…

  6. Celtics make it official, waive Darko Milicic

    Nov 21, 2012, 5:23 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    We told you yesterday that this might be coming, and today, the team made it official. The Boston Celtics have waived Darko Milicic, according to a team release. “Darko has asked us to release him so he could deal with a personal matter,” said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “The whole Celtics family…

  7. Doc Rivers says he didn’t know the details of Rondo’s assists streak, no one believes him

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Doc Rivers

    Remember Rajon Rondo playing through to the end of a garbage-time blowout his Celtics were suffering at the hands of the Pistons on Sunday? Sure you do. It was a disappointing display of individual stat-stuffing, and it couldn’t have happened without the complicity of Rondo’s head coach, Doc Rivers. After the team practiced on Tuesday,…

  8. Andrew Bynum speculation reaches new, ridiculous heights of stupidity

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    This shouldn’t even be a story. But we’re here discussing it because with Andrew Bynum nothing seems impossible, not even him needing another knee surgery and missing the rest of the season. And that combined with a doctor giving his opinion on a case where he has absolutely no direct knowledge of what is happening…

  9. Zach Randolph explains confrontation with Kendrick Perkins

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:21 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    Zach Randolph was fined $25K for his role in a locker room area confrontation with Kendrick Perkins, after the two were ejected for on-court jawing during the Grizzlies win over the Thunder last week. Details of the incident were initially vague, but Randolph cleared them up a little bit in a radio interview on the…

  10. Or, maybe Nene is not going to play for Wizards Wednesday

    Nov 21, 2012, 2:36 PM EDT

    Nene Hilario

    We reported yesterday that understandably frustrated Wizards coach Randy Wittman was finally going to catch a break — Nene was going to return to the court. He was getting one of his two best players back… Sorry, not happening. The Brazilian big man battled plantar fasciitis in his left foot last season, and through the…

  11. Woodson not worried at all that ‘Melo, Amare can coexist

    Nov 21, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are 8-1 to start the season and it isn’t a fluke — this is a team that plays legitimately good defense and with Carmelo Anthony at the four (and Raymond Felton playing smartly at the point). But there remains a big question looming about this team — what happens when Amare Stoudemire returns?…

  12. Jeremy Pargo gets nod to start in place of Kyrie Irving

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:32 PM EDT

    Jeremy Pargo, Dominique Jones

    Well, that’s going to be a drop off. No offense to Jeremy Pargo, but he is no Kyrie Irving. However, with Irving out for a month with a fractured finger, Pargo has been given the starting job in Cleveland, tweets Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal. That starts Wednesday night against Philadelphia. Pargo has…

  13. Klay Thompson plans to shoot way out of slump. Should he do it off bench?

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:13 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    The question isn’t “can Klay Thompson shoot?” The guy came into the league a gunner and hit 41.4 percent from three as a rookie. But in a larger role this season — starting, more minutes, more touches — he can’t find his touch. He’s shooting just 33.3 percent from three (and averaging seven shots from…

  14. Gerald Wallace tried to get Kobe to shoot a free throw with his eyes closed

    Nov 21, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Gerald Wallace, Deron Williams

    Gerald Wallace is becoming my hero. And he had the right idea — if you’re going to get to Kobe Bryant, you appeal to his ego. Wallace is a talker and the Nets forward was jawing at Kobe near the end of the Lakers win over the Nets Tuesday night. Twice in the final 17…

  15. Metta World Peace rubs Nets coach Avery Johnson’s head after hitting a three (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:47 AM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    Late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s win over the Nets, Metta World Peace hit a three from the corner to cut the New Jersey lead to two. There was no celebration, no flexing, and no kissing of his own biceps after doing so. But he did have a little something for Avery Johnson…

  16. Tom Thibodeau says Omer Asik a lot like Yao Ming

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:38 AM EDT

    Omer Asik

    No, it’s not that Omer Asik is going to get voted in as an All-Star starter whether he deserves it or not. But Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau — who was an assistant with the Rockets and worked with Asik when he was on the Bulls last season — thinks that Asik and Yao Ming are…

  17. Dwight Howard airballs a free throw, laughs about it (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers got a solid win over a pretty good Nets team on Tuesday, but struggled mightily from the free throw line in the process. L.A. as a team was 19-of-37 from the stripe, while Dwight Howard had more than half of the attempts, but managed to knock down just 7-of-19. None were worse than…

  18. Doc Rivers rips Lakers for “embarrassing” Phil Jackson

    Nov 21, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    Generally a good rule of thumb is that if you’re the coach of the Boston Celtics you shouldn’t comment on the Lakers coaching search. It’s pretty much Mahmoud Ahmadinejad commenting on the U.S. Presidential election — nobody should care what he thinks. But Doc Rivers spoke for a lot of Lakers fans when he commented…

  19. Kobe (and others) impressed with Grinnell’s Jack Taylor’s 138-point game

    Nov 21, 2012, 10:12 AM EDT

    mbb-8046-taylor

    It is what the entire basketball world is buzzing about — Jack Taylor at little Grinnell University dropped 138 points in a game. He was 52-of-108 from the field and 27-of-71 from three. And if you haven’t heard from him yet, Rob Dauster at CollegeBasketballTalk spoke with him Tuesday night. Kobe Bryant had a good…

  20. Jeremy Lin thinks he will still be an All-Star. Someday.

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Based on his play so far this season, Jeremy Lin doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star. He’s been below replacement level. Frankly, he’s looked a young point guard learning how to play in the league and finding his game. He’ll improve, but that’s a process. This year, if the fans don’t vote in Chris Paul…
