  1. Heat’s ball movement has team talking hockey assists

    Nov 9, 2012, 8:41 AM EDT

    Heat forward James looks to pass under pressure from Celtics forward Bass during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James gets the ball on the wing and drives, blowing past his man and toward the lane and quickly the rotations start and the defense collapses on him. LeBron draws the defense in then kicks it out to Dwyane Wade who quickly makes the extra pass to Ray Allen in the left corner. He…

  2. Video: Meyers Leonard was throwing it down on Clippers

    Nov 9, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    You don’t get a Los Angeles Clippers game without some monster dunks. We know what to expect, and we got it… From Meyers Leonard. Wait, what? Yup, it was Trail Blazers rookie Meyers Leonard who got four of his eight points on the night with powerful dunks. I’m not sure this game was exactly a…

  3. Three Stars of the Night: Two Clippers and a certain someone from OKC

    Nov 9, 2012, 2:30 AM EDT

    jamal crawford clips

    Only two games on the slate on TNT Thursday, but we still managed to find three stellar performances nonetheless. And they all had dominant offensive performances. Third Star: DeAndre Jordan (21 points on 8-of-10 shooting, 8 rebounds, in 28 minutes) I was a bit disgusted with the way DeAndre Jordan handled himself on the bench…

  4. Clippers 103, Blazers 90: DeAndre Jordan and Jamal Crawford get the job done

    Nov 9, 2012, 1:52 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    After dismantling the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, the Clippers trip to Portland the very next night would seem to be a vacation by comparison — and it certainly started out that way. But Portland fought back from a 26-point first-half deficit to get within four in the final period, before L.A. stabilized and pulled…

  5. Oklahoma City 97, Chicago 91: Kevin Durant cares little for your defense

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    For roughly 45 minutes of gametime, the Oklahoma City Thunder looked awful. The Thunder led the NBA in turnovers last year, and in front of a national audience tonight, they showed why they might do it again this year, coughing the ball up 22 times on the evening. There were silly plays and overly ambitious…

  6. Video: Kevin Durant does a great Dirk Nowitzki impression to seal Thunder’s win over Bulls

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:04 PM EDT

    Thunder's Durant is guarded by Bulls' Deng during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    The Bulls had an answer for what the Thunder wanted to do offensively for most of the night, but ultimately, there was no answer for this. Kevin Durant drained this one-legged fadeaway — Dirk Nowitzki style, from 17 feet out with 19.5 seconds left — to seal the 97-91 win for OKC. Chicago came into…

  7. Marcus Camby to make season debut for Knicks

    Nov 8, 2012, 10:39 PM EDT

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    The Knicks haven’t shown any signs of a team struggling to deal with injuries. On the way to a 3-0 start that has New York as the league’s lone remaining undefeated team, the Knicks have allowed an NBA-best 85.3 points per game, and have shown similar success on the defensive end even when adjusting for…

  8. Nets to be without Gerald Wallace for Friday vs. Magic

    Nov 8, 2012, 9:45 PM EDT

    Gerald Wallace

    The Nets really missed Gerald Wallace on Wednesday night — if you’re going to be without your best wing defender for a night the Heat are not the team you want to face. The Nets will again be without Wallace on Friday night due to the same sprained ankle, the team announced Friday. The good…

  9. Rajon Rondo doesn’t like anyone, has no time for friends

    Nov 8, 2012, 9:37 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo is in the top tier of the league’s most competitive players, so the comments he made that we’re about to bring you shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Rondo is traditionally very quiet with the media, so when he talks about things like his competitive drive or how he values his teammates…

  10. Thomas Robinson says all the right things after receiving two-game suspension

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Thomas Robinson

    The elbow from Kings’ rookie Thomas Robinson on Wednesday — you remember, the one that connected with the throat of Jonas Jerebko and earned Robinson a well-deserved two-game suspension — was brutal and unnecessary, and has no place at all in a basketball game played at the professional level. Thankfully, after receiving his punishment for…

  11. Kobe reacts after watching clip of his ‘death stare’ at Mike Brown (VIDEO)

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:41 PM EDT

    Mike Brown, Kobe Bryant

    After the Lakers practiced in El Segundo on Thursday, Kobe Bryant was asked about his supposed “death stare” at head coach Mike Brown that came as L.A. was getting rolled in Utah at the hands of the Jazz for the team’s fourth loss in five tries to open the season. The glare is above, and…

  12. Wade, LeBron say Brooklyn now more attractive to free agents

    Nov 8, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Now that the Nets are in Brooklyn, do they stand a chance of landing a superstar free agent? LeBron James and Dwyane Wade said yes. Could they land LeBron or Wade in 2014 when the Heat stars can opt out of their deals? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Wade and LeBron both told…

  13. Thunder unveil new alternate uniforms

    Nov 8, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    okc alt uniforms

    The Thunder have arguably one of the worst logos in the league, especially when contrasting it with how exciting the product is on the court. The colors aren’t bad, but the logo the team went with seems like it was chosen from a contest between third-graders to submit their best designs. There’s a new uniform…

  14. Kings’ Robinson suspended two games for elbow to neck of Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Kim English, Jonas Jerebko

    We told you Wednesday night when it happened a suspension was very possible for Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, and the league has come down pretty hard on the rookie. Robinson has been suspended two games (without pay) for throwing an elbow to the neck of Jonas Jerebko of the Detroit Pistons, the league announced Thursday. Robinson was…

  15. Warriors to shut down Andrew Bogut for at least 7-10 days

    Nov 8, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut desperately wanted to get on the court and help his Golden State Warriors from the moment the season tipped off… and he there on the court opening night in the starting lineup. Helping? That’s up for debate. (I mean, he’s still better than Andris Biedrins.) But he clearly was not moving well following…

  16. Teams are adjusting, now James Harden must adjust, too

    Nov 8, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    James Harden, Kenneth Faried

    For a couple games, nobody knew what to expect of James Harden in a Houston Rockets uniform. We knew he could play — Sixth Man of the Year, Olympic gold medalist — but the setting with him as the man and not a playmaking third option was going to be very different. The result was…

  17. Stay classy L.A.: Lakers fan pepper sprays Jazz fan after game

    Nov 8, 2012, 3:08 PM EDT

    pepper-spray

    Wherever the Lakers travel around the nation (and around the globe), there are always some Lakers fans in the crowd. Even in rivalry cities like Boston. Or Utah. And those fans are as frustrated with the Lakers 1-4 start as the people in Los Angeles. And some handle their anger just about as well —…

  18. Hornets’ Anthony Davis says he feels better, could play Friday

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    This is encouraging, but could ultimately be meaningless. The Hornets No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis has missed the last two games for the Hornets with a concussion he got when teammate Austin Rivers inadvertently elbowed him in the head. But Davis could be back Friday, reports Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune. Anthony Davis says…

  19. Zeller trying to pass concussion tests; Varejao’s knee “not serious”

    Nov 8, 2012, 12:37 PM EDT

    Tyler Zeller Cavaliers

    Cleveland did not look like same team in a loss to Golden State Wednesday as they did beating the Clippers Monday. Because they weren’t. No Anderson Varejao and his 15 points and 16 rebounds a game so far this season, he tweaked his knee against the Clippers. No backup big man Tyler Zeller and his…

  20. Mehmet Okur announces his retirement from basketball

    Nov 8, 2012, 11:48 AM EDT

    Mehmet Okur

    Mehmet Okur, the Turkish big man with a soft outside shot but who also could bang inside, has announced his retirement after 10 seasons in the NBA (the last couple marred by injuries). Sportando had the story from NTV Spor in Turkey. Mehmet Okur announced his retire from basketball at 33….Okur decided to retire because…
