    Gerald Green

    The Pacers had no trouble beating the Pistons on Friday, leading by as many as 43 before settling for the final victory margin of 32 points.

    Steve Nash, Damian Lillard

    The Lakers pulled out a close win over the Blazers on Friday, behind a stellar 40-point offensive performance from Kobe Bryant. Bryant hasn’t been scoring like this lately, preferring instead to involve his teammates more in the offense by passing up shots in favor of getting them some better and more consistent looks. But when…

    Feb 23, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    Milwaukee was one of the more active teams at the trade deadline, heavily engaged in discussions for Josh Smith, and even coming close to making a deal for him before Atlanta reportedly pulled out at the last minute. With Smith unavailable to them, the Bucks settled on another solid player, and were able to pull…

  9. Vince Carter moves up all-time scoring list, then hits game winner (VIDEO)

    Feb 23, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Vince Carter

    Vince Carter — idol to much of a younger generation — is still making plays. Like finding a way to score near the rim, get the and-one, and with it pass Gary Payton to move into 28th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. With Carter it’s a combination of a guy who could always score…

    Feb 23, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban watches the Los Angeles Lakers play the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban likes to receive attention, and he likes to take shots at the Lakers. He got to do both on Friday, when he suggested during a radio interview that the Lakers amnesty one of the greatest players to ever play for the franchise in Kobe Bryant. For the uninitiated, the amnesty provision…

    Feb 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    It’s got to be the jerseys. The Spurs came into Friday night’s game against the Warriors having won 16 of their last 17 games, and were coming off of a thorough shellacking of the L.A. Clippers just the night before. San Antonio also hadn’t lost to Golden State since 2008, holding a streak of 16…

    Seattle_Sonics

    Earlier today our Aaron Bruski laid out in detail how lawsuits and the environmental review process for a proposed new arena in Seattle is no slam dunk. It’s another sign of how Sacramento is not out of this. But one of the two lawsuits trying to challenge the Seattle project was tossed out by a…

  13. Andrew Bogut out ‘indefinitely’ with back spasms

    Feb 22, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut, Mark Jackson

    Andrew Bogut will miss the Warriors’ game on Friday against the Spurs, and is out indefinitely due to suffering from back spasms, head coach Mark Jackson told reporters before tip-off. The ‘indefinitely’ part, along with Jackson’s demeanor while delivering the news, may be cause for legitimate concern. From Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle:…

  14. Celtics sit Kevin Garnett Friday night against Suns

    Feb 22, 2013, 8:48 PM EDT

    Celtics' Pierce, Garnett and Allen sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat during Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    Doc Rivers told reporters before Friday night’s contest against the Suns in Phoenix that Kevin Garnett would be inactive, and that Jeff Green would get the start in his place. The reason? Rest.

  15. Monta Ellis will still start, Redick to come off Bucks bench

    Feb 22, 2013, 7:59 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    This isn’t really a surprise, when the Bucks traded for J.J. Redick without sending one of their star guards out in a deal, you had to figure Redick’s role was about to be very different than what he had in Orlando. Redick is going to come off the bench for the bucks. From Andrew Gruman…

  16. Sixers’ summer “Plan A” still to re-sign Andrew Bynum

    Feb 22, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    How much money would you give Andrew Bynum this summer? The bigger question is, how many years? Fortunately Sixers’ GM Toni DiLeo, and other GMs around the league, don’t have to answer that question until this summer. And they hope to have seen him play a little before that. Whatever the answers to those first…

  17. Cuban playfully suggests maybe Lakers should amnesty Kobe

    Feb 22, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Is there anything Mark Cuban enjoys more than tweaking the Lakers (and their fans)? Nope. Nothing comes to mind. Last year Cuban was proactive in cutting back the Mavericks salary, freeing up cap room for him to go after a big free agent to pair with Dirk Nowitzki. Hasn’t really worked out yet, but what…

  18. Report: If Kevin Garnett wanted to join the Clippers, Chris Paul would have made it happen

    Feb 22, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    We know Kevin Garnett is intensely loyal, but Chris Paul and the Clippers certainly put that to the test at the deadline. Garnett’s situation was unique of other stars that didn’t get dealt at the deadline, mainly because of his no-trade clause. If he wanted to remain a Celtic, that was his prerogative. Despite what he…

    More and more it looks like the Cleveland Cavaliers will sign Greg Oden to a contract this summer and see if he can make a comeback next fall. There’s a ways to go here, and with Oden’s history of knee issues — he’s 24 and had three microfracture surgeries — there’s a lot that could…
