  1. Video: In first Chinese game, McGrady stripped with game on line

    Nov 26, 2012, 12:33 PM EDT

    BASKET-CHN-NBA-MCGRADY

    Tracy McGrady’s first game in China didn’t exactly end well. The score is 92-92 with 18.5 seconds left and the Qingdao Eagles got their new star the ball in isolation out top with a chance to win it. And then McGrady gets casual with his dribble and is stripped with 15 seconds left. Embarrassing. Keep watching,…

  2. Report: Bucks still shopping Drew Gooden. Good luck.

    Nov 26, 2012, 11:43 AM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    Drew Gooden has not yet set foot on the court for the Milwaukee Bucks this season, getting a DNP-CD in every game. He’s demoted. Benched. And so the Bucks are trying to trade him. Good luck. But that’s the buzz, reports Gery Woelfel at the Journal Times. The Bucks don’t comment on trade speculation but…

  3. Heat likely without Shane Battier for “a few” after knee sprain

    Nov 26, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    It was an awkward play Saturday night — Cleveland’s Alonzo Gee was driving the lane and Miami’s Udonis Haslem stepped in to take the charge. Haslem was knocked backwards and fell into Shane Battier’s right knee, and Battier went to the ground grabbing it. Battier left the game and did not return. He tweeted out…

  4. Video: Kenneth Faried rejects Al-Farouq Aminu dunk attempt

    Nov 26, 2012, 10:24 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried Rises Up to Reject Aminu

    That right there is why we like Kenneth Faried — nothing is just conceded. The hustle and effort is there on every play. In this case Al-Farouq Aminu of the Hornets thinks he has a dunk Sunday only to find Faried is stronger and athletic enough to get up and block it. Cleanly. The Nuggets are on…

  5. Compared to Doc Rivers, Big Baby says Magic coach Vaughn is Gandhi

    Nov 26, 2012, 10:03 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    They are both former NBA players but they come at their jobs very differently. To hear Orland’s Glen Davis tell it, Celtics coach Doc Rivers is an old school coach where Magic coach Jacque Vaughn is more a players’ coach into positive reinforcement. That’s what Davis told the Boston Herald. “Different guys,” he said after…

  6. When Nash comes back Kobe says he can just focus on scoring

    Nov 26, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Right now we get to see Kobe Bryant running a lot of pick-and-roll when we watch a Lakers game — and it’s not bad. He was never really asked to do this in the triangle offense, but he has shown real skill at decision making on setting up teammates and when to get the points…

  7. Video: Manu Ginobili embarrasses DeRozan on way to and-1

    Nov 26, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili

    Manu Ginobili is a wizard. A warlock. A guy who just keeps making plays he shouldn’t be able to make. Not much to say here other than “damn, that sucks for DeMar DeRozan” because this is going to get run on every highlight show in North America a whole lot.

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics, Spurs need OT for wins

    Nov 26, 2012, 5:26 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili; DeMar DeRozan;

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while out buying a $4.2 million gold Christmas tree… Spurs 111, Raptors 106 (2OT): Now this is a close game — at the end of every quarter and the first overtime this was a one-point or tied game. Toronto needs to…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: All guard edition

    Nov 26, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday stretches past Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett in Game 6

    Sunday’s slate of games was fairly uninspiring, with no marquee matchups to speak of; even the two games that went into overtime and double overtime ended up being won by the team that was expected to do so. But the players that shined the brightest might say otherwise, and the ones we’ve chosen as our…

  10. Ricky Rubio may be back sooner than expected

    Nov 25, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio shoots a free throw during their NBA game against Los Angeles Clippers

    The Timberwolves started the season doing a pretty good job of fighting through the rash of injuries the team was dealing with, getting off to an unexpected 5-2 start. Since then, as more and more players were forced to miss time, and even with Kevin Love being back in the lineup, the wheels have started…

  11. Rashard Lewis suddenly out of the Heat’s rotation

    Nov 25, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Rashard Lewis

    Rashard Lewis began the season playing fairly well in Miami, perhaps even better than most expected. He was getting close to 20 minutes per game off the bench in the Heat’s first six games of the season, and filling in productively offensively in his time on the court. But since Miami has been at full…

  12. Mavericks broadcaster disgusted with Kobe’s one-legged Dirk shot in Dallas (VIDEO)

    Nov 25, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Kobe Bryant didn’t attempt a shot during the entire first quarter of the Lakers blowout win over the Mavericks on Saturday. When he did finally get a shot up early in the second, the fans in Dallas — or at least a member of the broadcast team — weren’t real happy with what they saw.…

  13. Reminder: Jeremy Lin likely to be voted in as an All-Star starter

    Nov 25, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Knicks Lin talks during a new conference before the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    This is not exactly breaking news, because (A) it hasn’t actually happened yet, and (B) it’s been widely speculated about since last season. But it is worth reminding you about nonetheless. When the NBA’s All-Star festivities descend on Houston in February, Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin is more than likely to appear in the mid-season…

  14. Paul Pierce is playing more like Ray Allen this season

    Nov 25, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    Maybe the answer to the question “how are the Celtics going to replace Ray Allen?” was always there, we just didn’t expect it. How about a little Paul Pierce. If you’ve watched some Celtics games this season you have seen Pierce, a shot creator for most of his career, working more off the ball coming…

  15. Thoughts and prayers with Kevin McHale and his family after the passing of their daughter

    Nov 25, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    Rockets head coach Kevin McHale has been away from the team since November 12, spending time with his family while dealing with the serious illness of his daughter. The organization announced today that she has passed away. Sasha McHale, 23, lost her battle with lupus, according to the Star Tribune. Here’s the official statement from…

  16. Pau Gasol playing through knee tendinitis

    Nov 25, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Gasol drives on Dallas Mavericks Murphy during their NBA game in Dallas

    Pau Gasol found himself on the bench for the fourth quarter of Friday’s loss to the Grizzlies, thanks to a lethargic and uninspired effort that was evident to anyone who was watching. He complained about his lack of post touches afterward, and talked about how getting those touches would help him get into a rhythm…

  17. Report: Andrew Bogut targeting return to court next Saturday

    Nov 25, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    He’s been getting specialized shots to help speed up the recovery of his ankle, the one he had surgery on this past summer. The one that has kept him out of training camp and all but four limited-minutes games for Golden State this season. But Andrew Bogut is expected to be back on the practice…

  18. Harrison Barnes destroys Nikola Pekovic with the vicious slam dunk (VIDEO)

    Nov 25, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    You know this dunk from Harrison barnes on Nikola Pekovic is insane for a couple of reasons. One, your eyes just tell you so. Barnes cutting full speed to the basket, and David Lee hitting him in stride perfectly with the no-look pass before Barnes elevates and detonates (shout out to Tom Leander) on Pekovic…

  19. Lakers get back on track with 26-point destruction of Mavericks

    Nov 25, 2012, 12:50 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    This is how it’s supposed to happen. After a disappointing two-game stretch that had the Lakers questioning their roles and searching for answers, it took less than a full game in Dallas for the team to find its way. L.A. dominated from the start, and led by as many as 37 points on the way…

  20. Heat come from seven down in final two minutes to beat the Cavs

    Nov 24, 2012, 11:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates his game-winning basket against Cleveland Cavaliers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    The Cavaliers had no business being in this game with the Heat, in Miami, without the injured Kyrie Irving. But they weren’t only in it, they were on track to win it — until the final two minutes, when it all fell apart. The Heat beat Cleveland 110-108 on Saturday, but they waited until almost…
