  1. Video: Kevin Love is back and he didn’t miss a beat

    Nov 22, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Danilo Gallinari

    Kevin Love returned from his broken hand — from doing knuckle pushups — on Wednesday night, but we have to remember he has been out a while and we should give him time to…. What? He dropped 34 points and 14 rebounds on the Nuggets? Oh. Never mind then. Kevin Love is back and that…

  2. Brandon Roy admits he has level III arthritis in knee. That’s not good.

    Nov 22, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy opened up and was honest with the Oregonian Thursday about why he came back and where his knees are at following his latest surgery on Monday. It’s not good. Roy admitted that he was bothered a lot by the idea he had left basketball too soon, that he could have done more. He…

  3. Not good: Brandon Rush tore MCL as well as ACL

    Nov 22, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Brandon Rush, Shannon Brown

    Brandon Rush was already not coming back to the Warriors this season (which sucks, they could use him right about now with injuries on their perimeter), but now you have to wonder at what point next season he’ll be back. Rush has torn his MCL as well as his ACL in his left knee. What…

  4. Kevin Durant hits courtside fan with a pass, kisses her to apologize (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2012, 8:11 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant is nothing short of a killer on the basketball court, as evidenced by his 35-point effort which helped his team to an overtime win over one of the league’s top teams. But he was able to showcase his softer side at the same time. With just over seven minutes to play in the…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Nov 22, 2012, 5:22 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

  6. Three Stars of the Night, two Kevins, and one kiss

    Nov 22, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant is guarded by Los Angeles Clippers' Griffin and Odom during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Just a monster 14-game slate this Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, so before we give you our Three Stars, let’s break off a few honorable mentions. In Boston, there was Tony Parker shredding the Celtics for 26 points and six assists on 12-of-17 shooting. In Miami, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each had 28 points, but…

  7. Thunder 117, Clippers 111: A Chris Paul survival guide

    Nov 22, 2012, 1:44 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Chris Paul is terrifying, and he knows it. Paul doesn’t score just to score — he does it to establish the threat. When you’re 6-foot-nothing in a league filled with giants, you manipulate instead of overwhelm. Paul can have 6 points and it will feel like he’s dominating, just because he made his shadow look…

  8. Video: Atlanta’s Kyle Korver drains game-winning three

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:19 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    Kyle Korver doesn’t need much space, and with the Hawks down two and seven seconds on the clock Devin Harris pushes it up then makes a veteran move to become the screener and hand off to Korver coming on a curl… and did I mention he doesn’t need much space? The Wizards had a chance…

  9. Video: Dalembert with between-the-legs assist to Monta Ellis

    Nov 21, 2012, 9:32 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Samuel Dalembert, not exactly known for his prowess at the offensive end of the court, but this is a pretty sweet dish to the cutting Monta Ellis for the Bucks. As for the Heat defense on this play… well, we’ve discussed the Heat defense this season. They get a pass as champions… for a while.…

  10. Kevin Love is back. To start for Timberwolves Wednesday.

    Nov 21, 2012, 7:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    This is a bigger surprise than the things that will come out of your Uncle Phil’s mouth at the family Thanksgiving dinner once he’s had a few too many beers. But Timberwolves fans don’t care because this is great news: Kevin Love has been put on the active roster and will start for the Timberwolves…

  11. Kyle Lowry back starting for Raptors, Calderon to bench

    Nov 21, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Lowry reacts after missing a free throw against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    Kyle Lowry looked rusty in his first game back from injury Tuesday night against Philly, (5-of-14 shooting) but he also looked aggressive. He attacked. Jose Calderon was what he has been most of the season — solid. Dependable. When it came time for Toronto Raptors coach Dwyane Casey to decide who was starting Wednesday against…

  12. Reggie Evans becomes the first player fined for flopping under league’s new rules (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2012, 5:25 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    UPDATE 5:17 p.m. ET: The Brooklyn Nets Reggie Evans has in fact been fined $5000 for this incident, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Nobody is shocked. He deserved it. 4:44 p.m. ET: Given the fact that Reggie Evans was prominently featured in the video the league showed to teams and media before the season…

  13. Celtics make it official, waive Darko Milicic

    Nov 21, 2012, 5:23 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    We told you yesterday that this might be coming, and today, the team made it official. The Boston Celtics have waived Darko Milicic, according to a team release. “Darko has asked us to release him so he could deal with a personal matter,” said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “The whole Celtics family…

  14. Doc Rivers says he didn’t know the details of Rondo’s assists streak, no one believes him

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Doc Rivers

    Remember Rajon Rondo playing through to the end of a garbage-time blowout his Celtics were suffering at the hands of the Pistons on Sunday? Sure you do. It was a disappointing display of individual stat-stuffing, and it couldn’t have happened without the complicity of Rondo’s head coach, Doc Rivers. After the team practiced on Tuesday,…

  15. Andrew Bynum speculation reaches new, ridiculous heights of stupidity

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    This shouldn’t even be a story. But we’re here discussing it because with Andrew Bynum nothing seems impossible, not even him needing another knee surgery and missing the rest of the season. And that combined with a doctor giving his opinion on a case where he has absolutely no direct knowledge of what is happening…

  16. Zach Randolph explains confrontation with Kendrick Perkins

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:21 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    Zach Randolph was fined $25K for his role in a locker room area confrontation with Kendrick Perkins, after the two were ejected for on-court jawing during the Grizzlies win over the Thunder last week. Details of the incident were initially vague, but Randolph cleared them up a little bit in a radio interview on the…

  17. Or, maybe Nene is not going to play for Wizards Wednesday

    Nov 21, 2012, 2:36 PM EDT

    Nene Hilario

    We reported yesterday that understandably frustrated Wizards coach Randy Wittman was finally going to catch a break — Nene was going to return to the court. He was getting one of his two best players back… Sorry, not happening. The Brazilian big man battled plantar fasciitis in his left foot last season, and through the…

  18. Woodson not worried at all that ‘Melo, Amare can coexist

    Nov 21, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks are 8-1 to start the season and it isn’t a fluke — this is a team that plays legitimately good defense and with Carmelo Anthony at the four (and Raymond Felton playing smartly at the point). But there remains a big question looming about this team — what happens when Amare Stoudemire returns?…

  19. Jeremy Pargo gets nod to start in place of Kyrie Irving

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:32 PM EDT

    Jeremy Pargo, Dominique Jones

    Well, that’s going to be a drop off. No offense to Jeremy Pargo, but he is no Kyrie Irving. However, with Irving out for a month with a fractured finger, Pargo has been given the starting job in Cleveland, tweets Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal. That starts Wednesday night against Philadelphia. Pargo has…

  20. Klay Thompson plans to shoot way out of slump. Should he do it off bench?

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:13 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    The question isn’t “can Klay Thompson shoot?” The guy came into the league a gunner and hit 41.4 percent from three as a rookie. But in a larger role this season — starting, more minutes, more touches — he can’t find his touch. He’s shooting just 33.3 percent from three (and averaging seven shots from…
