  1. Thunder unveil new alternate uniforms

    Nov 8, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    okc alt uniforms

    The Thunder have arguably one of the worst logos in the league, especially when contrasting it with how exciting the product is on the court. The colors aren’t bad, but the logo the team went with seems like it was chosen from a contest between third-graders to submit their best designs. There’s a new uniform…

  2. Kings’ Robinson suspended two games for elbow to neck of Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Kim English, Jonas Jerebko

    We told you Wednesday night when it happened a suspension was very possible for Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, and the league has come down pretty hard on the rookie. Robinson has been suspended two games (without pay) for throwing an elbow to the neck of Jonas Jerebko of the Detroit Pistons, the league announced Thursday. Robinson was…

  3. Warriors to shut down Andrew Bogut for at least 7-10 days

    Nov 8, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut desperately wanted to get on the court and help his Golden State Warriors from the moment the season tipped off… and he there on the court opening night in the starting lineup. Helping? That’s up for debate. (I mean, he’s still better than Andris Biedrins.) But he clearly was not moving well following…

  4. Teams are adjusting, now James Harden must adjust, too

    Nov 8, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    James Harden, Kenneth Faried

    For a couple games, nobody knew what to expect of James Harden in a Houston Rockets uniform. We knew he could play — Sixth Man of the Year, Olympic gold medalist — but the setting with him as the man and not a playmaking third option was going to be very different. The result was…

  5. Stay classy L.A.: Lakers fan pepper sprays Jazz fan after game

    Nov 8, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

    pepper-spray

    Wherever the Lakers travel around the nation (and around the globe), there are always some Lakers fans in the crowd. Even in rivalry cities like Boston. Or Utah. And those fans are as frustrated with the Lakers 1-4 start as the people in Los Angeles. And some handle their anger just about as well —…

  6. Hornets’ Anthony Davis says he feels better, could play Friday

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    This is encouraging, but could ultimately be meaningless. The Hornets No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis has missed the last two games for the Hornets with a concussion he got when teammate Austin Rivers inadvertently elbowed him in the head. But Davis could be back Friday, reports Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune. Anthony Davis says…

  7. Zeller trying to pass concussion tests; Varejao’s knee “not serious”

    Nov 8, 2012, 12:37 PM EDT

    Tyler Zeller Cavaliers

    Cleveland did not look like same team in a loss to Golden State Wednesday as they did beating the Clippers Monday. Because they weren’t. No Anderson Varejao and his 15 points and 16 rebounds a game so far this season, he tweaked his knee against the Clippers. No backup big man Tyler Zeller and his…

  8. Mehmet Okur announces his retirement from basketball

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:48 AM EDT

    Mehmet Okur

    Mehmet Okur, the Turkish big man with a soft outside shot but who also could bang inside, has announced his retirement after 10 seasons in the NBA (the last couple marred by injuries). Sportando had the story from NTV Spor in Turkey. Mehmet Okur announced his retire from basketball at 33….Okur decided to retire because…

  9. Kobe Bryant is frustrated, Dwight Howard wants him to chill

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant was angry. Frustrated and pissed off that the Lakers fell to 1-4 in Utah, he was showing everyone. He argued with referee Ed Malloy, he gave Mike Brown a death stare, he stormed off the court after the game, and when asked about it by reporters Kobe basically said he didn’t want to…

  10. Video: Clippers Crawford nutmegs Spurs De Colo

    Nov 8, 2012, 10:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    DeAndre Jordan loves this play. LOVES IT. Nutmeg is an old-school term, believe it or not. Seriously. The stuffy Oxford English Dictionary says the term (when not talking about the food) is first seem “in the 1870s which in Victorian slang came to mean ‘to be tricked or deceived, especially in a manner which makes…

  11. Video: Denver’s Kenneth Faried with the vicious alley-oop finish

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    It was a monster night for Kenneth Faried — 16 points and 16 rebounds as the Nuggets picked up a quality win. We at PBT already broke that all down for you. But we had to show you this monster finish — that is a tough pass to make and a crazy finish by Faried.…

  12. Lakers owner Jim Buss gives Mike Brown vote of confidence

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:08 AM EDT

    Mike Brown

    After what is arguably the Lakers ugliest loss of the season in Utah — although it’s really hard to pick just one, they have all been so ugly — the heat from fans and the media is back on coach Mike Brown and his Princeton offense. But not from Lakers ownership. Jim Buss preached patience…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:34 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  14. Three Stars of the Night: Bombs Away

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:38 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Charlotte Bobcats

    Chicks dig the long ball, right? Well, for tonight’s Three Stars we’ve got some sharp shooting goodness from behind the arc, a man who’s getting awful comfortable in this space, and an off the bench performance that sunk the struggling Lakers. Third Star: Randy Foye (17 points, 5-9 three pointers) It wasn’t so much the…

  15. Find the panic button again: Bad first half dooms Lakers in ugly loss to Jazz

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:03 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant walks off the court to the locker room before time expires during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    I hope you enjoyed the couple days of respite from the Lakers panic, because it is back on. If the Lakers were looking to carry over their momentum from their win over Detroit, they failed miserably against the Jazz and fell hard 95-86. L.A. looked listless early and dug themselves a hole that they couldn’t…

  16. Kings’ Robinson ejected after nasty elbow to Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 1:25 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Indiana Pacers

    Thomas Robinson, you’re a rookie so let me help you out here — the check for that fine that is coming can be made out just to the NBA. And there is certainly at least a fine coming — and likely a suspension — for Robinson following his uncalled for and nasty elbow to the…

  17. Denver 93, Houston 87: Kenneth Faried and the Nuggets get freaky

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    kenneth-faried

    Crunch time. Two possession game. James Harden has been completely locked up due to some stingy perimeter defense, but he still lurks as a viable closer. Rockets forward Patrick Patterson is hitting corner 3-pointers, which is apparently a thing that happens now. This has been a sloppy game, but it’s winning time for the Nuggets.…

  18. Cavaliers down another big man as Varejao’s knee swells up

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Anderson Varejao has been fantastic this young season for Cleveland — 14 points a game on 65.8 percent shooting, plus 15 rebounds a game. He has grabbed 25 percent of the available rebounds when he has been on the floor the first four games (that is Dennis Rodman like). He has been playing like an…

  19. Video: LeBron James with the ally-oop to Dwyane Wade

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:20 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade moves up court in the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in Miami

    You cam make a couple of takeaways from the Miami Heat’s sound thrashing of the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday. One is that the Nets just are not very good and a long way from contending like their owner has promised. A very long way. The other is that the Miami Heat are very good. And that…

  20. Noah regrets meaningless three trying to get Bulls fans Big Macs

    Nov 7, 2012, 9:09 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    When the Chicago Bulls score 100 points in a game attendees at the United Center get a coupon for a free McDonald’s Big Mac. If Derrick Rose were still playing they would probably have to give out coupons for a free angioplasty by the middle of the season, but with him out McDonald’s is largely…
