    Jan 21, 2013, 11:21 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    The hits just keep on coming for the Cleveland Cavaliers. First it was Kyrie Irving missing the first third of the season, now this.

    Jan 21, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat LeBron James looks on during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland

    It was one of the mantras of the players and their union during the lockout — the NBA owners claim poverty and lost money but they never talk about the increased value of the franchise during their ownership and the profits from that. The Maloofs bought the Kings 15 years ago in 1998 for $156…

  3. Reports: R.C. Buford, Phil Jackson could be in Seattle front office

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    Whatever happens with the sale of the Kings, current GM Geoff Petrie will be gone. He is in the last year of his deal and is reportedly going to retire at the end of the season. Which is his smart way of stepping out of the inevitable. So who takes over? The new Seattle group…

    Jan 21, 2013, 9:41 AM EDT

    Raptors' Calderon smiles during a break againstthe Lakers during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    If you want to know why the Lakers are five games below .500, watch their defense in these highlights from their loss to Toronto Sunday. The temptation is to say that of course Jose Calderon had his way with the Lakers perimeter players, Steve Nash was guarding him. And Calderon has some success against him.…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while taking out your frustrations in the “rage room”… Nuggets 121, Thunder 118 (OT): This was the kind of game that fans find entertaining and makes a coach cringe.

  10. Doc Rivers: We need to find right player combos “or we’re going to get some guys out of here”

    Jan 21, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Boston Celtics

    Doc Rivers is frustrated. And he should be — his Celtics were just plain bad in a loss to the Pistons on Sunday. They shot just 39.8 percent and were handled pretty easily by the Pistons. After the game, Rivers let those frustrations spill over when talking to the media, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of…

  11. Three Stars of the Night: The Nuggets are still very odd

    Jan 21, 2013, 1:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    If you needed further confirmation that the Denver Nuggets are in fact very strange, tonight’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder provided some material. Andre Iguodala, the All-Star swingman, the Gold Medalist, the highest paid player on the Nuggets, didn’t play in the fourth quarter and barely played in overtime. JaVale McGee…did JaVale McGee things.…

  12. Russell Westbrook denies two halfcourt shots by Denver’s mascot (VIDEO)

    Jan 20, 2013, 11:33 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant has a whole Nike ad campaign centered around “not being nice.” Russell Westbrook needs no such campaign. During the timeout break of a hotly contested game in Denver, Westbrook decided to take some frustration out. As the Nuggets’ mascot “Rocky” fired a heave from halfcourt, Westbrook jumped up and goaltended the shot. Why?…

  14. Kobe says he’ll have to push through tired legs unless Lakers ‘are going to do something roster-wise’

    Jan 20, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Lakers' Bryant puts his jersey in his mouth during a break in play against the Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    After making just 10 of his 32 shots in a loss to the Raptors on Sunday, Kobe Bryant pointed to “tired legs” afterward as the reason he’s struggled from the field for a second straight game. In the game before, during a loss at the hands of the Miami Heat, Bryant shot just 8-of-25. Combine…

  15. Blake Griffin leads the break, finds DeAndre Jordan for the alley-oop slam (VIDEO)

    Jan 20, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We can probably find some sick Blake Griffin highlights from just about every one of the Clippers’ games this season. But usually he’s on the receiving end of one of these plays, not the one leading the break and throwing the perfect pass. Midway through the third quarter of Saturday night’s win over the Wizards,…

  17. Vinny Del Negro sees trade rumors surrounding Eric Bledsoe as a positive

    Jan 20, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    BLEDSOE_ERIC

    When Chris Paul missed three straight games for the Clippers with a bruised right kneecap, the team didn’t miss him nearly as much as you might have thought. That’s because they have an athletic and capable backup in Eric Bledsoe, who started in place of Paul and had two above average performances in helping L.A.…

  18. Heat sign Chris ‘Birdman’ Andersen to a 10-day contract

    Jan 20, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    chris-andersen

    The Heat have the best record in the Eastern Conference, yet they haven’t been anywhere near invincible this season. In the games they’ve lost, Miami has been crushed on the boards, and it’s been an ongoing concern throughout the season. The team took action to improve in that category by signing Chris Andersen to a…

    Jan 20, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki reacts after hitting a shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Dirk Nowitzki missed the first third of the season with following knee surgery. Since he has returned he hasn’t been himself — 14 points a game on 41 percent shooting, with a PER right at the league average of 15. All of that has been just part of a disappointing season so far in Dallas.…

  20. Thibodeau benches Noah for fourth, overtime, and nobody’s talking

    Jan 20, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Here are the facts: Taj Gibson subbed out Joakim Noah with 5:53 left in the third quarter. At that point the Bulls center had 10 points and five rebounds and had played admirably against Marc Gasol and the big front line of Memphis. Noah never got back in the game — Tom Thibodeau benched him…
