  1. Video: Spike Lee showing love for the legend Bernard King

    Dec 20, 2012, 2:08 PM EDT

    bernard-king-608

    As it tends to do, the NBA is breaking out some new promotional ads on Christmas and that is one of them. Spike Lee — staring and directing — giving some love to the New York legend Bernard King is one. And King can really never get enough love on this blog. There will be…

  2. Celtics GM Danny Ainge isn’t thinking trade. Yet.

    Dec 20, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Coming into the season, the Celtics looked on paper like the likely breakout candidate in the East — some team was going to break out of the pack and challenge the Heat atop the East. Boston’s depth and veteran core made them seem a likely candidate. Instead, the Knicks have broken out and the Celtics…

  3. Magic’s Davis has shoulder sprain, likely out 4-6 weeks

    Dec 20, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT

    Glen Davis

    Well, this was about the best outcome that could be hoped for by Magic fans. Glen Davis, the heart of Orlando’s interior game, will be out for a bit with a sprained left shoulder suffered Wednesday night. There is no timetable for his return just plans for some rest. But there is no structural damage,…

  4. Derek Fisher to sit out at least three games for Mavericks

    Dec 20, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    Derek Fisher has been getting a lot of run at the point for Dallas — 27.9 minutes a night. And that he’s getting that while shooting 35.5 percent, turning the ball over on nearly 15 percent of the possessions he uses and not defending all that well — speaks to just what coach Rick Carlisle…

  5. It’s not Howard, Gasol says it is the system he is still trying to figure out

    Dec 20, 2012, 12:41 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol

    Plenty of Lakers fans have been asking “can Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard play together?” But that’s not the right question, if you ask Gasol. Sam Amick of USA Today did and Gasol’s response questioned how they both fit in Mike D’Antoni’s system. “I don’t find (playing with Howard) tough,” Gasol said as he stood…

  6. Jason Terry takes shot at Ray Allen. Because Boston is doing so well.

    Dec 20, 2012, 11:28 AM EDT

    Jason Terry

    After losing three straight, Boston got a sloppy win over a Cleveland team without Anderson Varejao on Wednesday night. A win they got because Paul Pierce channeled his 2002 self and dropped 40 points. So Jason Terry thought this was a good time to take a dig at Ray Allen. And maybe LeBron James in…

  7. Video: Is New York “Lob City?” Sure looks like it lately.

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Gerald Wallace

    The Clippers — with Chris Paul‘s impeccably-timed passes to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan — has been Lob City ever since Griffin said that when he found out CP3 was coming to Los Angeles. But no combo has connected on more alley-oop dunks this season than Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler of the Knicks. That…

  8. Eric Gordon to rejoin Hornets Saturday, start workouts to return this month

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon is about to be back with the Hornets. That’s when the work begins. First the work of practices and conditioning to get back on the court following the months of rehab to get his right knee healthy. Then there is the work of winning back a fan base that is ticked at him.…

  9. Video: Gerald Green with huge slam against Jazz “defense”

    Dec 20, 2012, 9:33 AM EDT

    Gerald Green

    The Jazz haven’t been a very good defensive team this season, a trend that continued against the Pacers who shot 51.3 percent on their way to a win. Or, just look at the help rotations — or lack thereof — on this huge Gerald Green throwdown. Then look at how high Green got. Dunking is…

  10. Magic’s Glen Davis could be out a while with shoulder injury

    Dec 20, 2012, 9:01 AM EDT

    Glen Davis

    The play itself doesn’t look like much — Glen Davis is going hard to the rim and Emeka Okafor fouls him, getting him across the arms as Davis tries to go up with the ball. But Big Baby is almost instantly on the floor grabbing his shoulder in a lot of pain. Those kind of…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: That Kevin Durant guy is pretty good

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while being more than willing to do your part to fight breast cancer…. Knicks 100, Nets 86: Battle of New York? Not really. The Knick are an elite team that got Carmelo Anthony back and he dropped 31 (that makes it…

  12. Losses beginning to wear on Bobcats after dropping 13th straight game in Phoenix

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — Before the Bobcats lost yet again in Phoenix on Wednesday, the team’s head coach, Mike Dunlap, was asked to assess the mood of his club as it was dealing with a losing streak that at the time stood at 12 straight games. “Hearty,” he said. “Good. Learning, because that’s the way we started.…

  13. Three Stars of the Night: The Truth is Here

    Dec 20, 2012, 3:17 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    The big scorers weren’t messing around tonight, folks. The clocks were turned back in Boston, an ABA type score was dropped in Houston, and the Highlight Factory was invaded (even more than usual!) by a force that even the great Kyle Korver could not stop. Robin Lopez was also on pace for 56 points after…

  14. Carmelo returns against soft Nets defense, sparks Knicks win

    Dec 19, 2012, 11:58 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony keeps ball away from Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams in NBA game in New York

    We’ve got a way to go before this “battle of the boroughs” resembles a real rivalry. Or maybe even a fair fight. After Wednesday night, the once-hot Brooklyn Nets are 2-8 in their last 10 games, and it all comes back to defense. Which we thought would be a weakness before the season even tipped…

  15. Kings players want Isaiah Thomas to start; don’t know what they’re running on offense

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    Isaiah DeMarcus

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

  16. Is the Lakers biggest problem really Kobe Bryant? No.

    Dec 19, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    Lakers Bryant reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the 76ers during their NBA game in Philadelphia

    While Steve Nash and Pau Gasol were out, Kobe Bryant has carried the Lakers. He is leading the league with 29.5 points per game, scoring more points per game than he has since before Pau Gasol arrived as a Laker. Back when Kobe had to carry Kwame Brown and Smush Parker (remember they both started).…

  17. Anderson Varejao inactive against Celtics due to knee injury

    Dec 19, 2012, 7:25 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics- Game Three

    Anderson Varejao will miss Wednesday’s game in Boston against the Celtics, thanks to a knee injury he sustained in the second quarter of Tuesday night’s loss to the Raptors. Varejao was listed as inactive on the Cavaliers’ pregame lineup sheet. The injury, which Cleveland listed as a bruised knee, caused him to go to the…

  18. Report: Pistons shopping seldom-used Austin Daye

    Dec 19, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Daye_dunk

    There was a time when Austin Daye was thought part of the future being build from the ground up in Detroit. They have Greg Monroe. They have Andre Drummond. Another young forward makes that something to build around. But it sounds like the Pistons are throwing in the towel on Daye. You can say that…

  19. Carmelo Anthony to play vs. Brooklyn Wednesday

    Dec 19, 2012, 6:17 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony is a go for the Knicks when they host the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night. Anthony tweaked his ankle in the third quarter of the Knicks blowout win over the Lakers last Thursday night (he left the game, but the game was decided at that point). He missed one game but was testing the…

  20. LeBron James bikes to most of Heat home games

    Dec 19, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Miami Heat

    Because an NBA game is not enough of a workout… LeBron James — reigning NBA MVP, best player walking the face of the earth, Miami Heat franchise anchor — rides his bicycle to most home games. And practices. And shootarounds. He had done this a little in the past but it has become the norm…
