  1. Marcin Gortat vents he’s no longer even considered in Phoenix

    Nov 19, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Not a lot of people noticed outside the Valley of the Sun, but Marcin Gortat was playing at a near All-Star level when paired with Steve Nash last season, as the big in a lot of his pick-and-rolls. This season it is not the same in Phoenix. Nash is in Los Angeles and the Suns…

  2. Raymond Felton worked out this summer… for the first time

    Nov 19, 2012, 10:16 AM EDT

    Raymond Felton

    I don’t think we’d use the words “Raymond Felton” and “chiseled” in the same sentence. But we can safely say that this year with the Knicks he is in considerably better shape than following the lockout last year in Portland. He admitted he wasn’t in shape for that season, and it showed on the court.…

  3. Video: Westrook dunks and Curry is but token resistance

    Nov 19, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Andris Biedrins

    Russell Westbrook is a nearly unstoppable force in transition — one of the league’s best athletes with underrated strength — and he was off to the races Sunday with a nice feed from Kevin Durant. Stephen Curry is a speed bump. Oklahoma City pretty much saw the Warriors as a speed bump in this one…

  4. Kobe all in favor of league’s stance against flopping

    Nov 19, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    LOS ANGELES — This season is the first that the NBA has entered with the realization (at least publicly) that flopping is a problem, and something that neither fans nor players enjoy seeing as a consistent part of the game. The league has implemented a system where it will first warn, and then fine players…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston falls and fails in Detroit

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while watching the Andrew Bynum bowling gif over and over. Lakers 119, Rockets 108: Two straight games with big point totals for the Lakers — 114 last game, 119 this one — and two wins. And that’s with Mike D’Antoni not even…

  6. Brandon Roy to undergo another right knee surgery this week

    Nov 19, 2012, 2:33 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    If you are counting this is number seven. A seventh knee surgery. By age 28. Brandon Roy, who has missed the Timberwolves last four games, will undergo right knee surgery next week, reports Jason Quick at the Oregonian. No timeline for Roy’s return has been set. Ugh. Not that this wasn’t a predictable outcome, but…

  7. Kobe’s triple-double fuels Lakers high-powered offense in win over Rockets

    Nov 19, 2012, 2:26 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Mike D’Antoni was forced to postpone his debut as Lakers head coach, opting instead to wait a few more days after being talked out of coaching Sunday night’s game by the team’s training staff. But you didn’t need to see D’Antoni in a suit on the sidelines to know that he had…

  8. Three stars of the Night: Kobe, Durant and a defensive gem

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:18 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Seeing names like Kobe and Durant on the three stars of the night can get a bit routine, even when they are both putting up a triple double. But we have a first at the three stars — someone making it because of their defensive efforts. And it’s well deserved. Honorable mention to DeMarcus Cousins…

  9. Celtics chase Rondo’s assists streak in blowout loss to Pistons

    Nov 18, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo shouts instructions from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Rajon Rondo had a streak of 33 consecutive games with 10 or more assists coming into Sunday’s game against the Pistons. He left with that streak intact, although making it happen came under some questionable circumstances. The Celtics were in the middle of getting blown out by a Detroit team that had won just once…

  10. Terrence Jones posterizes Jodie Meeks on the fast break (VIDEO)

    Nov 18, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    terrence jones

    Terrence Jones is a bad, bad man. Jodie Meeks did not know this, apparently, as he tried to get in position to take a charge from Jones on the fast break. Bad idea, as Jones went untouched for three-quarters of the court, continuing to gain speed before jumping right over Meeks for the serious posterization.

  11. Mike D’Antoni postpones debut as Lakers coach, plans to retain Bernie Bickerstaff

    Nov 18, 2012, 9:05 PM EDT

    New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni is interviewed as Lakers' championship trophies are seen in a window above the Lakers' practice court, following a media conference at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo, California

    LOS ANGELES — Mike D’Antoni will not be on the sidelines for the Lakers on Sunday, postponing his debut until later this week due to health reasons. He said that the team doctors talked him out of it, knowing that his energy level would be a question mark in the later parts of the game,…

  12. Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love both take part in Minnesota walkthrough

    Nov 18, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    There was a very encouraging sign at Minnesota Timberwolves practice Sunday: Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio were both going through the 5-0 walkthrough part of the practice, tweets Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. This was the first time for both of them. It doesn’t mean their return is imminent — Love is not due…

  13. Andrew Bynum confirms he had knee setback due to bowling

    Nov 18, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    Well, at least he owned up to it instead of coming up with some lame excuse. That’s something. Andrew Bynum confirmed to the media Sunday he thinks his latest setback in recovery from a knee injury happened when he went bowling. Ugh. From the twitter account of John Finger of CSNPhilly.com. Bynum says he thinks…

  14. Mike D’Antoni says he’s ’50-50′ on making coaching debut Sunday

    Nov 18, 2012, 3:14 PM EDT

    New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni is interviewed as Lakers' championship trophies are seen in a window above the Lakers' practice court, following a media conference at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo, California

    There’s been no official announcement, and no promise from either the Lakers or from Mike D’Antoni himself that he would make his coaching debut Sunday night in Los Angeles. But it seemed probable, since D’Antoni has been in place for five days now, and skipped Friday’s contest against the Suns to get a couple of…

  15. Spoelstra calls Chris Bosh Heat’s ‘most important player’

    Nov 18, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Three

    PHOENIX — On a night when Lebron James was playing through illness and needed to save himself as much as possible, Chris Bosh provided the offensive support Miami needed to take care of business. Bosh had 16 first-half points, and finished with 24 on 9-of-11 shooting, to go along with nine rebounds, three assists, and…

  16. Reggie Evans receives warning for flopping (VIDEO)

    Nov 18, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green reacts after Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans steals the ball in the second half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Reggie Evans, as Steve Kerr mentions in the video clip above, was somewhat featured in the video compilation that the league put together to show teams and media before the season to demonstrate the types of plays that players would be warned for this year under the new rules against flopping. Apparently, he didn’t get…

  17. Gentry says changes coming to Suns starting lineup

    Nov 18, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    The fact that the Suns lost to the Miami Heat on Saturday, even with Dwyane Wade out due to injury and LeBron James playing through illness, wasn’t by itself cause for concern. But the way the team started, flat once again and failing to score in the game’s first 4:14 on the way to a…

  18. Coach Rasheed Wallace? He reportedly wants it to happen.

    Nov 18, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace

    Rasheed Wallace’s teammates love him — because of his demeanor, because he understands the game. Guys listen to him — and that’s the first thing a coach needs. So why not NBA coach Rasheed Wallace? Don’t laugh. He wants it to happen, his friends told Yahoo Sports. “I know for a fact that’s his aspiration,”…

  19. Video: Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan with steals, lobs, slams

    Nov 18, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    There are other contenders for the title, but the Clippers remain the king of highlights. In part because they have Blake Griffin and D’Andre Jordan — the most athletic front line in the NBA. But mostly because they have Chris Paul — watch the lobs on the second of these dunks, almost a volleyball set…

  20. LeBron plays through illness to help Heat take care of Suns

    Nov 18, 2012, 1:53 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — A little more than 90 minutes before tip-off, the status of LeBron James was still uncertain. With Dwyane Wade already ruled out for the second straight game with a foot injury, Miami may have been in trouble if James too was unable to go. Thankfully for the Heat, James found a way to…
