  1. Kevin Durant double-crosses DeMar DeRozan (VIDEO)

    Jan 6, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan; Kevin Durant

    There was afternoon basketball on Sunday, with the Thunder tipping off in Toronto against the Raptors at 1 p.m. Eastern. Toronto hosts more of these early starts than any team in the league, but it didn’t bother the Thunder as they improved their league-best record to 26-7 with a 104-92 victory. Kevin Durant finished with…

  2. Ty Lawson steals JaVale McGee’s shoe during Nuggets’ win over Jazz (VIDEO)

    Jan 6, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson celebrates hitting a three-point basket against the Los Angeles Lakers in Denver

    It’s all fun and games when you’re up big late in the fourth quarter at home, as the Nuggets were against the Jazz on Saturday. With all key players relegated to the bench and simply waiting for time to expire and the win to officially be put in the books, Ty Lawson decides to have…

  3. Popovich calls for league to crack down on sideline activity after injury to Stephen Jackson

    Jan 6, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v New York Knicks

    Stephen Jackson suffered an injury in Thursday night’s loss to the Knicks that was completely avoidable. And Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, as you might imagine, was none too pleased. Late in the first quarter after taking a three-point attempt from the corner, Jackson’s momentum carries him slowly backward and out of bounds. A waitress…

  4. Report: John Wall expected to make season debut in the next two weeks

    Jan 6, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards, at 4-27 on the season, will take any good news they can get. This would most certainly qualify. John Wall has been practicing with the team and is expected to make his season debut within the next two weeks, according to a report from Chris Mannix of SI.com. Wall has been out the…

  5. Eric Gordon is back, hits and-1 game winner vs. Dallas (VIDEO)

    Jan 6, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    That is how you start to win back the fans in New Orleans. Eric Gordon is back from his knee surgery and showing the Hornets what they were missing — their offense is just much better when the young guard they got as the highlight of the Chris Paul trade is back on the floor.…

  6. Rockets suspend Royce White

    Jan 6, 2013, 11:28 AM EDT

    Royce White

    We thought there might be some fallout from Rockets draft pick Royce White refusing his D-League assignment earlier this week, and now we have it. Houston has suspended White immediately, and this is a situation that seems like it gets worse before it gets better. Here’s the official statement from Rockets GM Daryl Morey, via…

  7. Chris Paul says Warriors acted like ‘they won the NBA Finals’ last time they beat Clippers in L.A.

    Jan 6, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    BKN-CLIPPERS-WARRIORS

    The Warriors have been a nice surprise in the West this season, and with All-Star caliber performances from both Stephen Curry and David Lee for the bulk of the season, they were able to beat an equally surprising Clippers team in each of their first two meetings. The third meeting, however, was all Clippers. A…

  8. Lakers problems: It’s all about the defense

    Jan 6, 2013, 9:28 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Pau Gasol cannot find his place in the Mike D’Antoni offense. Steve Nash is still clearly not fully used to his new teammates. The Lakers lack shooters. With all the talent the Buss family is paying a pretty penny (well, many pennies) for we all expected an exceptional offense from the Lakers. So it’s been…

  9. Chris Paul’s half-court alley-oop to DeAndre Jordan (VIDEO)

    Jan 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers lobs are getting ridiculous. The Warriors decided to do some trapping of Chris Paul — maybe they watched the Lakers not trap and lay back on him on Friday night and he shredded them, but the result was the same. And this was the best example, it is CP3 with the half-court lob…

  10. Mark Cuban complains about officiating. Again. Will get fined. Again.

    Jan 6, 2013, 12:59 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The officiating in the Mavericks overtime loss to the Hornets on Saturday night was wildly inconsistent. It went both ways, but there were muggings that went uncalled and touch fouls called the next time down the court. All this came after a Dallas overtime loss to Miami this week where the Mavericks were frustrated with…

  11. James Harden bails himself out with a long three after nearly dribbling out the shot clock (VIDEO)

    Jan 5, 2013, 10:07 PM EDT

    James Harden

    James Harden has the green light 100 percent of the time in his new role with the Houston Rockets, although this possession midway through the fourth quarter during a tight game with the Cavaliers probably wasn’t what his coaching staff had in mind when gifting him with that responsibility. Harden receives the ball with about…

  12. Wizards head coach exasperated, out of answers after double-overtime loss to Nets (VIDEO)

    Jan 5, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    This isn’t exactly on the level of a Gregg Popovich postgame presser, but really, few things are. Still, it’s interesting anytime a head coach goes beyond the cliches and shows some emotion while meeting with the media after a tough loss, so we bring you an exasperated Randy Wittman trying to find some answers after…

  13. Kevin Love re-fractured his right hand, out indefinitely

    Jan 5, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    More bad news on the injury front for a Timberwolves team that has had more than its fair share. Kevin Love underwent an MRI on Saturday, which revealed a re-fracture of the third metacarpal on his right hand, the team announced. The injury occurred during the third quarter of Minnesota’s win in Denver on Thursday.…

  14. Heat hold team meeting to address rebounding issues

    Jan 5, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Chris Bosh works against New Orleans Hornets' Robin Lopez as they try for the rebound in a free throw in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    The Bulls took it to the Heat in Miami on Friday, winning 96-89 and outrebounding the defending champs by 20 in the process. If this was an aberration, it wouldn’t be likely to bother a team that knows it has the talent to play deep into the postseason, while struggling from time to time with…

  15. J.R. Smith believes an All-Star spot is within reach

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    J.R. Smith has been lauded for his play in New York this season, coming off the bench to provide a solid scoring punch at 16.6 points per game, while giving the team an active defensive presence on the perimeter. Smith’s name, along with that of the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford, has been widely mentioned when discussing…

  16. Love, Rubio both out for Minnesota Saturday vs. Portland

    Jan 5, 2013, 3:34 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    Good news for the visiting Trail Blazers, bad news for a Timberwolves team that needs wins in a tight Western Conference. Both Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio will sit out for the Minnesota Timberwolves against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night. Rubio has been out with back spasms and didn’t travel with Minnesota this…

  17. Dirk Nowitzki will return to Mavericks starting lineup Saturday

    Jan 5, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Elton Brand

    UPDATE: 2:49 p.m. ET: Nowitzki will indeed return to the starting lineup Saturday night at home versus the Hornets, according to a report from ESPN.com. Since returning to action six games ago for the first time this season, Dirk Nowitzki has been playing in the neighborhood of 22 minutes per game while working his way…

  18. Garnett ejected after foul to Hansbrough’s face (VIDEO)

    Jan 5, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    Kevin Garnett is going to get a fine for that. Fines come with every ejection for a flagrant-two foul. But that was not a dirty or intentional foul, it was incidental. Tyler Hansbrough’s face probably didn’t think it was so incidental, but KG clearly didn’t mean to do that and said so to CSNNE.com’s Jessica…

  19. Pau Gasol says he won’t ask to be traded from Lakers

    Jan 5, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Pau Gasol was essentially non-existent in the Lakers loss to the Clippers on Friday, finishing with just two points on 1-of-6 shooting in his 27 minutes of action. Defensively, he wasn’t much better, and seemed to be playing in slow motion at times against the likes of the super-athletic Blake Griffin. To make matters worse,…

  20. Shocking report: Orlando Magic won’t pursue Dwight Howard in free agency

    Jan 5, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    And by shocking, we mean surprising that this is something that needs to be reported at all. It hasn’t been all that long since Dwight Howard spent an entire season holding the Orlando Magic hostage, taking a relative eternity to decide whether he should stay or go elsewhere. Howard had the option of simply letting…
