  1. Find the panic button again: Bad first half dooms Lakers in ugly loss to Jazz

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:03 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant walks off the court to the locker room before time expires during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    I hope you enjoyed the couple days of respite from the Lakers panic, because it is back on. If the Lakers were looking to carry over their momentum from their win over Detroit, they failed miserably against the Jazz and fell hard 95-86. L.A. looked listless early and dug themselves a hole that they couldn’t…

  2. Kings’ Robinson ejected after nasty elbow to Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 1:25 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Indiana Pacers

    Thomas Robinson, you’re a rookie so let me help you out here — the check for that fine that is coming can be made out just to the NBA. And there is certainly at least a fine coming — and likely a suspension — for Robinson following his uncalled for and nasty elbow to the…

  3. Denver 93, Houston 87: Kenneth Faried and the Nuggets get freaky

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    kenneth-faried

    Crunch time. Two possession game. James Harden has been completely locked up due to some stingy perimeter defense, but he still lurks as a viable closer. Rockets forward Patrick Patterson is hitting corner 3-pointers, which is apparently a thing that happens now. This has been a sloppy game, but it’s winning time for the Nuggets.…

  4. Cavaliers down another big man as Varejao’s knee swells up

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Anderson Varejao has been fantastic this young season for Cleveland — 14 points a game on 65.8 percent shooting, plus 15 rebounds a game. He has grabbed 25 percent of the available rebounds when he has been on the floor the first four games (that is Dennis Rodman like). He has been playing like an…

  5. Video: LeBron James with the ally-oop to Dwyane Wade

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:20 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade moves up court in the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in Miami

    You cam make a couple of takeaways from the Miami Heat’s sound thrashing of the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday. One is that the Nets just are not very good and a long way from contending like their owner has promised. A very long way. The other is that the Miami Heat are very good. And that…

  6. Noah regrets meaningless three trying to get Bulls fans Big Macs

    Nov 7, 2012, 9:09 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    When the Chicago Bulls score 100 points in a game attendees at the United Center get a coupon for a free McDonald’s Big Mac. If Derrick Rose were still playing they would probably have to give out coupons for a free angioplasty by the middle of the season, but with him out McDonald’s is largely…

  7. MSG company takes down dumb, controversial Knicks ads

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    Unless you are reading this in the backseat of a Manhattan cab, you probably haven’t seen the Madison Square Garden ads promoting the New York Knicks around the city, on bus stops and such places. Here is what they said: “It’s Friday night. You can either go out and attempt to pick up sixes and…

  8. Scottie Pippen says Barack Obama has a “smooth” game

    Nov 7, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    President Barack Obama

    David Stern had no fear criticizing Barack Obama’s game, saying he couldn’t go anywhere but left. (Go ahead, make the easy political joke there if you must. But we expect better.) But Scottie Pippen —who played ball with the president on election day Tuesday — was far more complimentary when speaking with the Bulls official…

  9. Winderman: Granger news takes pressure of Rose return

    Nov 7, 2012, 4:01 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose in D Rose Short and Family Story Tee

    The upshot of Wednesday’s prime injury news is that the Bulls’ injury news no longer is nearly as grim. No sooner had the Pacers sent out their release about Danny Granger likely missing three months following a knee procedure, then Tom Thibodeau certainly would have been within his rights to call Derrick Rose and tell…

  10. Mike Brown says expect to see Metta World Peace at shooting guard

    Nov 7, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Four

    Mike Brown has been a man under fire to start the season. His team has underperformed to the tune of a 1-3 start which has led to speculation that his job is in jeopardy. One of the key complaints levied against Brown has been his lack of consistency with his rotations and how he’s managed…

  11. Video: Dirk Nowitzki sings “Born in the USA” and pretty much nails it

    Nov 7, 2012, 2:57 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki is a man of great musical taste. He’s made beautiful music with Steve Nash in Dallas. He hums David Hasselhoff tunes (who doesn’t!?) at the free throw line. He belts out “We are the Champions” when he wins championships. And hey! He probably even knows who Bon Jovi is! Look, Dirk doesn’t need to…

  12. Bradley Beal says “too many people in my ear” with advice

    Nov 7, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Bradley Beal

    Like pretty much everyone in a Wizards uniform, Bradley Beal has had a tough start to the season. Washington’s No. 3 overall pick is shooting 15.4 percent, is finding it hard to get looks and has generally looked pretty overwhelmed as a starter. Like most rookies do. And Beal is far from the only Wizard…

  13. Report: Pacers contact Mickael Pietrus after Granger news

    Nov 7, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    The Pacers may want to add some wing depth to their roster following the news that Danny Granger is out for three months allowing his left knee to heal. Which may mean enter Mickael Pietrus, reports Mike Wells of the Indy Star on twitter. The Pacers have already reached out to the agent of free…

  14. Raptors’ Lowry officially out for Wednesday, day-to-day after

    Nov 7, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry drives between Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace in NBA game in New York

    When Toronto point guard Kyle Lowry crumpled on the floor in pain following rolling his ankle Tuesday night (stepping on the foot of OKC’s Serge Ibaka), him not playing Wednesday against the Mavericks seemed a pretty likely outcome. Officially, the team has said Lowry is out for the game, which means a lot of of…

  15. Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers both out for Hornets Wednesday

    Nov 7, 2012, 1:04 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Monty Williams

    Anthony Davis has not yet been cleared by the league’s neurologist following his concussion and will not suit up Wednesday night when the Hornets host the 76ers, according to the team’s official reporter. This was somewhat expected. Don’t expect Monty Williams to say anything about it. Not a word. But to add to his woes…

  16. Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Tyler Zeller out indefinitely

    Nov 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Tyler Zeller, Jordan Crawford

    Short of wearing a helmet, there was pretty much nothing Cleveland Cavaliers rookie center Tyler Zeller could have done to protect against this injury. Zeller has been ruled out indefinitely after Cleveland’s win over the Clippers on Monday night, making it a little more bitter than sweet for the Cavs. Zeller suffered the injury after…

  17. Pacers’ Granger out three months after shot to help knee

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s time for some Pacers players to step up because the cavalry is not coming over that hill. Not until about the start of February, anyway. The Indiana Pacers announced that their leading scorer of the past three years Danny Granger will be out three months after he “received an injection Tuesday to treat left…

  18. Don’t buy the rumors Mike Brown’s job is in immediate danger

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:21 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are a patient organization. One of their great strengths — along with insane revenue generation — is they don’t make rash moves, they wait until the odds are in their favor then the act decisively. They don’t panic. They don’t care what you write on an internet message board or what a talk…

  19. Garnett says Sullinger is like Perkins… without the defense

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:38 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Sullinger has ball stripped from his hands by Milwaukee Bucks' Sanders during their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Kevin Garnett really likes Celtics rookie Jared Sullinger. The highest praise for him might be this — on a veteran, contending team Doc Rivers is giving him nearly 19 minutes a game. Kevin Garnett tried to pay him a better compliment — comparing him to Kendrick Perkins on the Celtics official Web site. “He reminds…

  20. Chris Paul told Byron Scott to let Kyrie Irving guard him

    Nov 7, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT

    Dion Waiters, Anderson Varejao,  Chris Paul

    Kyrie Irving played a fantastic game to lead the Cavaliers to a win over the Clippers Monday — 24 points, 10 assists and he had the dagger three at the end (when for some reason DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe both backed off him and gave him a clean look with the game on the…
