  1. Spurs’ Neal misses games after dreaded luggage zipper injury

    Nov 19, 2012, 4:36 PM EDT

    Gary Neal, Aleksandar Rasic, Kristjan Kangur

    Gary Neal, this is why there are rookies in the NBA. To do things like zip up your luggage so you don’t suffer an injury that keeps you out games. Neal is expected back Monday night when the Spurs take on the Clippers, but he missed the team’s last two games for a reason that…

  2. Report: Darko Milicic may leave Celtics to return to Europe, sick mother

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    After a preseason when Celtics fans were high on him (this is why we say don’t read much into those games), Darko Milicic has been a non-factor for the Celtics. He played five minutes in the season opener and hasn’t sniffed the court since. Part of it is his mind is elsewhere — with his…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot goes walking in Memphis

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    Memphis has moved into the top spot in the poll this week, but notice the top three are teams we kind of expected to be on the second or third tier in the NBA this season. The question remains can they keep it up. Oh, and at the other end the Wizards still suck. 1.…

  4. Hidden key to the Lakers recent success? They’ve cut down their turnovers

    Nov 19, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Matt Barnes, Lamar Odom

    The last two Lakers games (wins over the Rockets and Suns) have foreshadowed a shift in how they hope to play for the rest of the season. The team that once ground out possessions in the half court has turned up the tempo and blown away the opposition by allowing their talent to shine. Highlight…

  5. Video: Steve Nash gets caught doing some “Gangnam style” moves

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    This isn’t Phoenix, Steve. This is Los Angeles. The cameras are everywhere. So here is the video of Steve Nash doing a little “Gangnam Style” that you have been dying to see. Enjoy.

  6. Report: D’Antoni hopes to make coaching debut Tuesday

    Nov 19, 2012, 12:53 PM EDT

    Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni announces he is unable to coach his new team against the Rockets, due to recovery from a knee operation, in Los Angeles

    Of course, that’s what he said about Sunday… Mike D’Antoni clearly wants to get on the sidelines and start coaching the Lakers, not just watch them put up triple-digit scores and win. He had said he planned to coach Sunday but pushed that back due to concerns about his energy levels — he did just…

  7. Jeremy Lin enjoying peaceful season in “low-key” Houston

    Nov 19, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Rockets guard Jeremy Lin comes under the basket against Lakers center Jordan Hill during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Jeremy Lin is still one of the faces of the franchise — he is the image the team use to sell season tickets, to lure in sponsors, him and now the beard of James Harden. That is what is sold, along with hope for the future. But being the face of the Houston Rockets and…

  8. Report: Brandon Roy out a couple of weeks after surgery

    Nov 19, 2012, 11:58 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    This is not a serious surgery, this is a simple scope job… except it’s on Brandon Roy’s troubled knees, so nothing is simple. Roy is going to undergo his seventh knee surgery this week, this time on his right knee. But it’s not supposed to keep him out that long, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

  9. Video: Metta World Peace threw a touchdown pass Sunday

    Nov 19, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    Metta World Peace did something no Philadelphia Eagles quarterback did Sunday — threw a touchdown pass. At the end of the first half World Peace was inbounding the ball and threw a length of the court pass to Pau Gasol, who sealed off his defender beautifully and made the play. This is pretty much how…

  10. Marcin Gortat vents he’s no longer even considered in Phoenix

    Nov 19, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Phoenix Suns

    Not a lot of people noticed outside the Valley of the Sun, but Marcin Gortat was playing at a near All-Star level when paired with Steve Nash last season, as the big in a lot of his pick-and-rolls. This season it is not the same in Phoenix. Nash is in Los Angeles and the Suns…

  11. Raymond Felton worked out this summer… for the first time

    Nov 19, 2012, 10:16 AM EDT

    Raymond Felton

    I don’t think we’d use the words “Raymond Felton” and “chiseled” in the same sentence. But we can safely say that this year with the Knicks he is in considerably better shape than following the lockout last year in Portland. He admitted he wasn’t in shape for that season, and it showed on the court.…

  12. Video: Westrook dunks and Curry is but token resistance

    Nov 19, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Andris Biedrins

    Russell Westbrook is a nearly unstoppable force in transition — one of the league’s best athletes with underrated strength — and he was off to the races Sunday with a nice feed from Kevin Durant. Stephen Curry is a speed bump. Oklahoma City pretty much saw the Warriors as a speed bump in this one…

  13. Kobe all in favor of league’s stance against flopping

    Nov 19, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    LOS ANGELES — This season is the first that the NBA has entered with the realization (at least publicly) that flopping is a problem, and something that neither fans nor players enjoy seeing as a consistent part of the game. The league has implemented a system where it will first warn, and then fine players…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston falls and fails in Detroit

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while watching the Andrew Bynum bowling gif over and over. Lakers 119, Rockets 108: Two straight games with big point totals for the Lakers — 114 last game, 119 this one — and two wins. And that’s with Mike D’Antoni not even…

  15. Brandon Roy to undergo another right knee surgery this week

    Nov 19, 2012, 2:33 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    If you are counting this is number seven. A seventh knee surgery. By age 28. Brandon Roy, who has missed the Timberwolves last four games, will undergo right knee surgery next week, reports Jason Quick at the Oregonian. No timeline for Roy’s return has been set. Ugh. Not that this wasn’t a predictable outcome, but…

  16. Kobe’s triple-double fuels Lakers high-powered offense in win over Rockets

    Nov 19, 2012, 2:26 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Mike D’Antoni was forced to postpone his debut as Lakers head coach, opting instead to wait a few more days after being talked out of coaching Sunday night’s game by the team’s training staff. But you didn’t need to see D’Antoni in a suit on the sidelines to know that he had…

  17. Three stars of the Night: Kobe, Durant and a defensive gem

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:18 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Seeing names like Kobe and Durant on the three stars of the night can get a bit routine, even when they are both putting up a triple double. But we have a first at the three stars — someone making it because of their defensive efforts. And it’s well deserved. Honorable mention to DeMarcus Cousins…

  18. Celtics chase Rondo’s assists streak in blowout loss to Pistons

    Nov 18, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo shouts instructions from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Rajon Rondo had a streak of 33 consecutive games with 10 or more assists coming into Sunday’s game against the Pistons. He left with that streak intact, although making it happen came under some questionable circumstances. The Celtics were in the middle of getting blown out by a Detroit team that had won just once…

  19. Terrence Jones posterizes Jodie Meeks on the fast break (VIDEO)

    Nov 18, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    terrence jones

    Terrence Jones is a bad, bad man. Jodie Meeks did not know this, apparently, as he tried to get in position to take a charge from Jones on the fast break. Bad idea, as Jones went untouched for three-quarters of the court, continuing to gain speed before jumping right over Meeks for the serious posterization.

  20. Mike D’Antoni postpones debut as Lakers coach, plans to retain Bernie Bickerstaff

    Nov 18, 2012, 9:05 PM EDT

    New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni is interviewed as Lakers' championship trophies are seen in a window above the Lakers' practice court, following a media conference at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo, California

    LOS ANGELES — Mike D’Antoni will not be on the sidelines for the Lakers on Sunday, postponing his debut until later this week due to health reasons. He said that the team doctors talked him out of it, knowing that his energy level would be a question mark in the later parts of the game,…
