    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…

  2. Chase Budinger hopes to be back with Minnesota in March

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Chase Budinger, Taj Gibson

    Minnesota just needs to get healthy — Ricky Rubio is back but is still playing 24 minutes a night or less, Kevin Love is back from a broken hand but is battling the flu, and the nagging injury list in Minnesota goes on and on and on. Minny also misses Chase Budinger, who was off…

  3. Brooklyn Nets fire coach Avery Johnson

    Dec 27, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    This is how fast things turn in the NBA — Avery Johnson was the NBA coach of the month in October and November but now has been fired in December. The Brooklyn Nets — who have gone 3-10 in December with one of the worst defenses in the NBA and an offensive leader in Deron…

  4. Knicks’ Felton has broken finger, says he could miss 4-6 weeks

    Dec 27, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton

    Ugh. Raymond Felton’s play at the point — 15.8 points, 6.3 assists and controlling the tempo — may have been down lately but it remains a key reason the Knicks are 21-8 and near the top of the Eastern Conference. However, for the next month or so they will have to find out what life…

  5. Report: Steve Blake could return to Lakers in 2-3 weeks

    Dec 27, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    Steve Nash is back with the Lakers and all is right with the world… well, except for the loss in Denver where the Lakers looked wooden and old, or the heavy minutes Nash and Kobe Bryant are racking up, or the fact the Lakers are below .500 and have a lot of work to do…

  6. Blazers GM says he has no plans to trade LaMarcus Aldridge

    Dec 27, 2012, 11:42 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, James Johnson

    I’m not sure where this buzz started, but there seems to be a buzz that the Trail Blazers would be willing to listen to LaMarcus Aldridge trade offers. Not happening. Not even close. Nor should it, but we’ll get to that. What matters is that when Jason Quick of the Oregonian asked Blazers GM Neil…

  7. Stephen Curry’s fantastic drive, circus shot vs. Jazz

    Dec 27, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry bites a mouth piece during the first quarter of his NBA basketball game against Los Angeles Lakers in Oakland

    That is just fun. It’s time to talk about Stephen Curry the All-Star. As in should he make the team? The fans are not going to vote him in, so this would have to be a coach’s choice. Curry is scoring 20.3 points per game and dishing out 6.4 assists per game, is shooting 43.9…

  8. Hornets coach says Eric Gordon could return Saturday

    Dec 27, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Finally, the Hornets could get Eric Gordon back on the court. The two guard expected to be part of the future of the franchise along with No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis (notice how Austin Rivers is not in that conversation anymore) has missed the entire season due to pain in his knee. But Gordon…

  9. Video: Dwyane Wade kicks Ramon Sessions in the… er… groin

    Dec 27, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Heat Bobcats Basketball

    Dwyane Wade tries to play this off as unintentional, but you watch that video and tell me he didn’t just try to kick Ramon Sessions in the place a man least wants to be kicked on Wednesday night. To use the hockey terminology, is that a “distinct kicking motion?” I’ll say this — Sessions reacted…

  10. John Wall says he expects to return to Wizards in January

    Dec 27, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    John Wall — the former No. 1 overall pick and guy seen as the savior of the Washington Wizards — is targeting a January return. In part because his ego is wounded. Wall has not set foot on the court yet this season due to a stress injury to his left patella, and without him…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: James Harden leads dramatic Boxing Day finishes

    Dec 27, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, James Harden

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of all the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while wondering exactly what you’re going to do with the Salt-N-Pepa salt and pepper shakers you got for Christmas…. Rockets 87, Timberwolves 84: James Harden is making quite the All-Star case, and making the Rockets look more and more…

  12. Three Stars of the Night: Digging the long ball

    Dec 27, 2012, 1:07 AM EDT

    James Harden

    How important is the long ball to the modern NBA offense? If the season ended today, four teams would place in the all-time top-40 for best team 3-point percentage – the Spurs, Knicks, Thunder and Heat. The best offensive teams seem to manufacture plenty of looks from behind the arc, and in that spirit, we’re…

  13. J.R. Smith hits the game-winner to give shorthanded Knicks win over Suns (VIDEO)

    Dec 27, 2012, 12:22 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    Say what you want about J.R. Smith. The man simply gets buckets. The Knicks were down two starters in Phoenix on Wednesday, playing without Carmelo Anthony due to soreness in his left knee, and Raymond Felton due to a sprained pinky finger on his shooting hand. Both injuries were sustained in New York’s loss to…

  14. J.R. Smith’s flagrant foul injures Goran Dragic (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2012, 11:53 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Smith is surrounded by team mates after making a last second shot to beat Charlotte Bobcats in their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    Well, this is certainly one way to go about winning when your team is missing two of its starters. The Knicks came limping into Phoenix on Wednesday, with both Carmelo Anthony and Raymond Felton unable to go due to injuries suffered in the team’s Christmas Day loss to the Lakers. That just meant more shots…

  15. Dwight Howard ejected for flagrant-two foul on Kenneth Faried (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2012, 11:15 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    With just over five minutes remaining in the third quarter in Wednesday’s game between the Lakers and the Nuggets, Kenneth Faried received a pass from Ty Lawson on a screen and roll play, and went down the lane in an attempt to score. Dwight Howard was there waiting for him, and opted for the hard…

  16. Video: Mo Harkless puts Robin Lopez in his poster

    Dec 26, 2012, 10:38 PM EDT

    Moe Harkless

    On a night where the Hornets had the big highlight — they snapped their 11-game losing streak — we still got a little glimpse of why the Orlando Magic and other teams were high on Mo Harkless around the draft. The guy can get up. Robin Lopez, thank you for posing for the poster.

  17. Rudy Gay not with Grizzlies due to personal reasons

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:57 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    Rudy Gay is not with the Memphis Grizzlies for their game at home against the Sixers on Wednesday, according to a report from the Associated Press. The team listed “personal reasons” for Gay’s absence, with no additional information being conveyed at the time. Gay started the Grizzlies last game against the Rockets before the team…

  18. Carmelo Anthony, Raymond Felton out for Knicks Wednesday

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:10 PM EDT

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony reacts after teammate Marcus Camby fell into him, after going to the basket against the Los Angeles Lakers during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Carmelo Anthony was brilliant in the Knicks 100-94 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday, pouring in 34 points, 24 of which came in the second half. Anthony played over 43 minutes and physically battled Metta World peace for many of them, and that doesn’t come without taking its toll. Anthony will be out for Wednesday…

  19. League fines Denver’s Jordan Hamilton $25,000 for cursing at fans.

    Dec 26, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    jordan hamilton

    It was a frustrating night for Jordan Hamilton, and it’s going to cost him. With 3:50 left in the fourth quarter of a game that had been decided long before (the Clippers blew out the Nuggets), Jordan Hamilton filled the wing then caught the bounce pass on the fast break and went to the hoop,…

  20. Deron Williams out for Nets Wednesday with sore wrist

    Dec 26, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets
