    The Memphis Grizzlies were up four with 12 seconds to go when Rudy Gay missed two free throws and left the door just a little open. San Antonio came down and Stephen Jackson hit a three. Memphis inbounded and Zach Randolph was fouled and hit two free throws with three seconds left to put the…

    “I told the team that the biggest thing is that our season starts Sunday,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said after the latest in a parade of losses. “And we have got one run and have one shot at it and they need to get ready mentally and physically.” That is the sound of a desperate…

    Jan 11, 2013, 11:54 PM EDT

    Jordan Hill, Kris Humphries

    Friday night Jordan Hill showed up in street clothes to Staples Center and didn’t look good limping down the hall. Slowly. It hurt to watch him walk. Turns out it was with good reason — he needs hip surgery and will be out for the season, the Lakers reported. After seeing the team doctor and…

    London Olympics Swimming

    Every marriage faces ups and downs. It’s work. But most of us don’t have to do that work in the glare of the public spotlight. Vanessa and Kobe Bryant do. And they are making it work. The two have formally have called off their divorce. Vanessa put it on Instagram, Kobe on Facebook on Friday…

  5. Bulls beat the Knicks for the third time this season

    Jan 11, 2013, 11:29 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    The Knicks have shown that they’ve had no trouble dealing with the Miami Heat this season, the defending champions who sit at the top of the Eastern Conference standings. As for defense-first teams like the Bulls and the Celtics however, that’s where New York tends to struggle. Playing Chicago for the third time this season…

  6. Report: Celtics will listen to offers for Paul Pierce. Then probably do nothing.

    Jan 11, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Danny Ainge faces the same question at we start to approach the trace deadline that he did last summer — does the Celtics core have one more run in them? This summer the answer seemed to be yes, when Ainge signed Kevin Garnett to a new deal and got all the band back together save…

  8. Knicks Camby out at least two weeks with foot injury

    Jan 11, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    New York's Marcus Camby shoots near Indiana's David West and George Hill during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis.

    Marcus Camby has only played in 14 games for the Knicks this season — and now he’s going to miss a bunch more games. Camby has aggravated the plantar fasciitis he has battled in his foot and will be out two to four more weeks, tweets Frank Isola of Newsday. The bulk of the Knicks…

  9. Report: Kings buyer who would keep team in Sacramento has made formal offer to Maloofs

    Jan 11, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    As we told you earlier, the sale of the Kings won’t be a done deal until it is actually a done deal — contracts signed, press conferences convened, a river of tears flowing through the streets of Sacramento, etc. Shortly after the initial report of the deal being done came out, our own Aaron Bruski…

  10. Report: Dallas also has interest in signing Greg Oden

    Jan 11, 2013, 5:45 PM EDT

    Greg Oden

    The fact that teams would seriously consider signing Greg Oden to a contract, a guy that hasn’t played in the NBA since 2009 and missed most of four seasons before that, speaks to two things: 1) The dearth of quality big men in the NBA. 2) Just how good Greg Oden was back in the…

  11. PBT Podcast: Talking Kings relocation, Pacers, Knicks, Heat, and Lakers

    Jan 11, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Mavericks Kings Sale Basketball

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to discuss the seemingly impending sale of the Sacramento Kings to a Seattle-based ownership group, and why the fans there want to fight to keep a team that’s been historically terrible in terms of wins and losses. We then look back at Thursday…

  12. John Wall ready to go Saturday, will be on minutes restriction

    Jan 11, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    John Wall will be back on the court Saturday. And while cynics will say Wall hasn’t lived up to the franchise anchor, No. 1 overall pick status he had coming into the league, I would note that without him this season the Wizards have the worst offense in the NBA by far. At 92.7 points…

  13. Gasol out for Lakers still, Earl Clark to start against Thunder

    Jan 11, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Earl Clark

    Hey Earl Clark, really good game for the Lakers against the Spurs the other night. Well done. Your reward: Cover Kevin Durant Friday night. The Lakers need to start winning games fast if they want to even make the playoffs (they need to go 30-17 the rest of the way to get to 45 wins,…

  14. Cousins says push to face of Carter was “unintentional.” Sure.

    Jan 11, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins acts like the world just happens to him. He’s a passive bystander who just somehow keeps ending up in all these bad situations. Like say, getting ejected after pushing Vince Carter in the face. Which is what happened on Thursday night in overtime of the Kings loss to the Mavericks. Cousins said after…

  15. Another report sale of Kings to Seattle group “done.” We’re not sure.

    Jan 11, 2013, 1:24 PM EDT

    Seattle

    Let me be honest here: How close to done the Kings sale to the Chris Hansen/Steve Ballmer Seattle group is depends on who you talk to. From some sources around the league it’s all over but the signatures. Out of Sacramento it is nowhere close and the Maloofs want a bidding war. The latest report…

  16. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live (VIDEO)

    Jan 11, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Clippers guard Paul and forward Griffin return to the court following an injury to Griffin against the Grizzlies during the second half of game five in the Western Conference quarterfinals of the 2012 NBA playoffs in Memphis

    Los Angeles isn’t a Clippers town. But it is a town with a growing number of Clippers fans. And it sounds like half of them were in the crowd at Jimmy Kimmel Live when Blake Griffin and Chris Paul swung by. The one new bit of information is that during the 17-game winning streak the…

  17. LeBron, Wade say they faced more pressure than Lakers

    Jan 11, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James reacts next to his teammate Wade in a timeout against the Chicago Bulls during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    This year, the Lakers are under the NBA’s media magnifying glass. They are getting the national attention, they are the assembled “super team,” they are the soap opera. And they are struggling, which keeps people looking at you far longer than winning. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade look at the Lakers and say “that’s nothing.”…

  18. Kings players try to focus past distraction of Seattle rumors

    Jan 11, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT

    Mavericks Kings Sale Basketball

    There were hand painted signs and a lot of buzz in the Sacramento arena Thursday night, but once again the focus was not on the game. (Well, not at first, turns out Dallas and Sacramento played a really entertaining game that included some ridiculous shots.) As rumors of a potential sale of the Kings franchise…

  19. Report: Timberwolves reject first trade offer for Rudy Gay

    Jan 11, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    What bugs me about this report is how vague it is — outside of Rudy Gay, who is pretty publically being shopped around, we don’t have any names or details. We don’t know how serious all this really was. But when Gay was a free agent, Minnesota GM David Kahn had plans of talking to…
