  1. Video: Derrick Rose takes the blame for Bulls loss

    Jan 30, 2012, 8:07 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    This is what you have to love about Derrick Rose — he has a fantastic game, becomes the first guy to score 30 points or more on the Heat all season, but he steps up and tries to take on the blame for Bulls loss. Yes, he did miss those late free throws, but those…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kyrie Irving does not fear the moment

    Jan 30, 2012, 5:33 AM EDT

    Ray Allen Cleveland Cavaliers

    What you missed while waiting for Nadal and Djokovic to finish…. Heat 97, Bulls 93: LeBron James and Derrick Rose had moments of brilliance and key missed free throws in our game of the day. Cavaliers 88, Celtics 87: If you want to say that Boston choked, to ahead — if you give up a…

  3. Video: LeBron James dunks over John Lucas

    Jan 29, 2012, 9:30 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    LeBron James would say after the game that the Heat may not be “lob city” but they are doing okay. Yes, they are. Just ask John Lucas. He ended up on the wrong end of the game’s biggest highlight — early in the game the Heat were getting a lot of fast break attempts and one…

  4. Miami holds on, beats Chicago. Can we just start their playoff series now?

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against the Chicago Bulls during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    In two ways Sunday’s Heat victory over the Bulls summed up this young season. First, the Bulls and the Heat are the two best teams in the East. Clear and away. Philadelphia, Atlanta and even Indiana are good, but these two teams are on another level and are destined for an Eastern Conference finals rematch.…

  5. Report: Sixers trying to trade for Amare Stoudemire

    Jan 29, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the more surprising teams in the NBA this season considering they’ve leapt out to a 14-6 record and currently lead the Atlantic Division by four games at this early juncture in the season. In an attempt to prove that they’re in it for the long haul, though, they’re apparently…

  6. Video: Andre Iguodala with the self-assisted dunk

    Jan 29, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    I can hear JaVale McGee now, “Why doesn’t he get ripped for this?” Because he did it in traffic, not a breakaway, and you know he’s not putting style over substance. His team wins. Here is Philadelphia’s Andre Iguodala with the pass off the backboard to himself for the follow up dunk. Man that is…

  7. Chicago Bulls vs. Miami Heat: Five things to watch

    Jan 29, 2012, 12:35 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose LeBron James

    For the first time since the playoffs last year, the Chicago Bulls come into Miami to take on the Heat Sunday afternoon (3:30 ET on ABC). A battle of the two best teams in the East, two of the league’s true contenders, it’s a fun early season showdown and chance to measure each other right…

  8. Bulls release Mike James, may be thinking big man

    Jan 29, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    Leon Powe or Joel Przybilla could go from sitting on the sidelines of this NBA season to being in the mix for a championship in the next week. Here’s how. The first step was that the Bulls have released back up guard Mike James, bringing their roster down to 13. That move has pretty much…

  9. Report: Raptors open to trading guard Jose Calderon

    Jan 29, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Calderon drives to the basket past Sacramento Kings' Thomas during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    If only there were a couple big name teams out there looking for a point guard…. Interesting note from Marc Stein of ESPN: Sources with knowledge of Toronto’s thinking say that the team is not just going to give Calderon away, especially when he’s back to supplying a typically efficient 10.6 points and 8.7 assists…

  10. Rajon Rondo says he could be out until All-Star break

    Jan 29, 2012, 8:04 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Garnett whispers to teammate Rondo as they sit on the bench during their NBA basketball game against the Orlando Magic in Boston

    Boston has had a nice four-game win streak with Rajon Rondo sitting on the sidelines in a suit and Paul Pierce finding the Fountain of Youth, but long term the Celtics need their point guard back. That could be a while. Rondo tried to be vague when CSNNE.com’s Jessica Camerato asked him when he might…

  11. Steve Nash suffers thigh bruise at the end of Suns’ win over the Grizzlies

    Jan 29, 2012, 3:15 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    It’s probably nothing that will hinder Steve Nash for very long, if at all. But on the last play of the Suns’ 86-84 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, Nash collided with Marc Gasol, causing him to limp off the floor after Mike Conley‘s three-point attempt at the buzzer to win it fell short. “It…

  12. Report: D’Antoni’s job with Knicks safe. For now at least.

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Apparently the Knicks are not planning to end the Mike D’Antoni era any time soon. Then again, Flip Saunders got a direct vote of confidence from his owner just a couple weeks before the axe fell. But as of right now, there are no plans to make a move — but D’Antoni’s fate could rest…

  13. Gentry says Suns “have to find a way to play with Nash off the floor”

    Jan 28, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    nash-gentry-preview

    The Suns are off to a 6-12 start, which isn’t exactly where the team hoped or expected to be a little more than a quarter of the way through this lockout-shortened season. The problems certainly can’t be traced back to Steve Nash, who leads the league in assists despite Phoenix playing at a much slower…

  14. Daniel Orton made his NBA debut 582 days after being drafted by Orlando Magic

    Jan 28, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Daniel Orton

    The Orlando Magic drafted Daniel Orton on June 24, 2010, with the 29th overall pick of the NBA Draft. 582 days later, the 6-foot-10 center made his big league debut in garbage time of Friday night’s 93-67 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Orton, a project pick and one of five Kentucky players selected in…

  15. Milwaukee’s Stephen Jackson suspended for Lakers game

    Jan 28, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    Stephen Jackosn

    Because the Bucks could afford to lose another key player right now…. Stephen Jackson has been suspended by the league after he yelled at a referee and refused to leave the court at the end of the Bucks loss to the Chicago Bulls Friday night. He is out for the Bucks Saturday night game against…

  16. Dwight Howard blasts teammates for lack of effort after blowout loss to Hornets

    Jan 28, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The wheels are starting to come off in Orlando. Just one night after blowing a 27-point lead at home in a loss to the Celtics, the Magic pulled a complete no-show in New Orleans, and were blown out 93-67 by a Hornets team that entered the game just 3-15 on the season. That effort (or…

  17. Spurs decline third-year option on James Anderson

    Jan 28, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, James Anderson

    Although the final public analysis of any NBA roster move is usually distilled to a few lines of explanation, every single decision that an NBA front office makes is a complicated one. Salary, fit, production, potential, age, redundancy, personality, character, experience, flexibility — all of these factors — and more — come into play, and…

  18. Report: Lakers talking to Gilbert Arenas. Hey, don’t laugh.

    Jan 28, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    How serious are the Lakers point guard concerns? If you think Gilbert Arenas can help solve them, pretty serious. The Lakers have struggled at that spot as they need a more traditional point as they move from the triangle offense to Mike Brown’s sets, and so they are looking at their options. And Arenas is…

  19. Detroit second rounder Kyle Singler content with decision to stay overseas

    Jan 28, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kyle Singler, Joe Dumars

    It’s rare for a player selected in the second round of the NBA to have much immediate career affirmation. After all, many second rounders never even make the final cut of an NBA roster, and those that do typically warm the bench and play out unguaranteed contracts as practice filler. Duke forward Kyle Singler appears…

  20. Kevin Durant: “Who cares who’s better, Westbrook or me?”

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant honestly doesn’t get why people think he and Russell Westbrook can’t coexist. They have had some friction, but so has every team that won a title. You think it was a bowl of cherries to practice with Michael Jordan? Durant genuinely could not care less who scores the most points, who gets the…
