  1. DeMarcus Cousins releases statement, union appeals suspension

    Nov 14, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Klay Thomspon, DeMarcus Cousins, Andrew Bogut

    DeMarcus Cousins has sat out his league mandated two-game suspension for an angry confrontation with Spurs broadcaster Sean Elliott — he tried to appeal it but the league denied his request to even reconsider the appeal. So now the players union is taking up his case and appealing — he can’t get the games back…

  2. Andrew Bogut to be out at least a little longer than expected

    Nov 14, 2012, 1:25 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut wasn’t right, he wasn’t fully healed from his off-season ankle surgery and it showed on the court. So the Warriors decided to give him a week to 10 days to let it heal more. That wasn’t enough. Warriors coach Mark Jackson says Bogut is not going with the Warriors on their current three-game…

  3. Popovich says hero-ball is ‘boring,’ which explains difference between Spurs and Lakers last-second shots

    Nov 14, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    The Spurs beat the Lakers on Tuesday thanks to a three-pointer from Danny Green that put San Antonio up by two with 9.3 seconds left. We broke down the beauty of the play that Gregg Popovich called — multiple screens, all players in motion, freeing up a shooter for a good look at the final…

  4. Dwight Howard practices threes, could become Lakers stretch five

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    OK, probably not. But seeing Dwight Howard effortlessly swish a few corner threes through the net during warmups has to be encouraging to Mike D’Antoni, right? At least as a very, very seldom-used option. Hopefully, not one that will ever be used in end-of-game situations, though — especially with the other team’s tallest player right there…

  5. Kyrie Irving hates the cinematic dunks (VIDEO)

    Kyrie Irving

    Kyrie Irving hates the cinematic dunks — the ones that bring time almost to a halt, while players float through the air on the way to ultimately paying it off with what is usually a thunderous throwdown. So, in this latest spot from Foot Locker, he finds ways to occupy his time while waiting for…

  6. LaMarcus Aldridge’s wrist injury something to watch

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:40 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    Against Indiana Monday night LaMarcus Aldridge fell, put his hands out to break the fall and tweaked his wrist. It got worse over the next 24 hours. How much worse? Look what he told Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com before the game. In warmups, he says he couldn’t shoot the ball & it scared him. Says…

  7. Raptors set record for futility in win over Pacers

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Indiana Pacers

    Just a hideous display of basketball in Indiana on Tuesday, but somebody had to win, and it was the Toronto Raptors. After suffering a tough loss in triple-overtime just the night before, the Raptors will take the win any way they could get it. But the team set a record for futility in the process.…

  8. Nash talks being reunited (and it feels so good) with D’Antoni

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni Steve Nash

    You knew Steve Nash would like the Mike D’Antoni hiring by the Lakers. Once he gets his leg healed, and if he can stay healthy, Nash will become the key to the Lakers offense. They are going to run a lot of pick-and-roll and while Kobe Bryant showed Tuesday night against the Spurs he can…

  9. Rasheed Wallace masterfully trash talks Arron Afflalo after missed free throw (VIDEO)

    There are many ways to trash talk your opponent on the basketball court. The method chosen by Rasheed Wallace here is definitely one of my favorites. Sure, you can be mean, funny, vulgar, profane, or a combination of all of those. But in the NBA, where egos are often as big as guys’ salaries, simple…

    We’re still a long way from voting for president on twitter — but do you really want all your friends to see you tried to write in Donald Trump? However, now you can now vote for NBA All-Stars on twitter — so your friends can all see you chose Kirk Hinrich to start at guard…

  11. League upholds two-game suspension of DeMarcus Cousins

    Nov 14, 2012, 8:38 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Kings center DeMarcus Cousins sat out Tuesday night as his team lost to the Trail Blazers, serving the second of a two-game suspension by the league because the league denied his appeal of the suspension, reports Sam Amick of the USA Today. The original incident took place after the Kings loss to the Spurs last…

  12. Video: Spurs’ Danny Green’s game winner to beat Lakers

    Nov 14, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Danny Green, Kobe Bryant

    It is what the Spurs do in the regular season that other teams cannot match — execution. With the game on the line they just try to isolate their best player one-on-one, they ran a play. Don’t be distracted by the ball out top, which goes from Tony Parker to Tim Duncan to Kawhi Leonard,…

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thanking Buddha this guy is not on your team…. Spurs 84, Lakers 82: The Bernie Bickerstaff era in Los Angeles came to an end with a missed Pau Gasol three and a loss. Bickerstaff had a .667 winning percentage as…

  14. Game of the Night: Spurs oust Lakers with a great play at the end

    Nov 14, 2012, 1:54 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Stephen Jackson, Tim Duncan, and Tiago Splitter of Brazil celebrate after they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    On a night where Kobe Bryant was brilliant and the best player on the floor, it was the Spurs and a great play design by Greg Popovich that was the difference at the end. With the Lakers up by a single point with 19 seconds left, the Spurs inbounded the ball in the back court…

  15. Three Stars: Career highs for three guys

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:52 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    The soulless pursuit of stats by players on bad teams (or as I like to call it, the Corey Maggette special) can often be pretty brutal to watch. No one likes watching a guy play isolation basketball the whole game, hogging possessions and looking off teammates. Three Stars doesn’t reward that type of behavior, but…

  16. Grizzlies’ assistant general manager Kenny Williamson dies

    It’s been a tough season in the Grizzlies family. First VP of basketball operations Dana Davis passes away, now this. Grizzlies assistant general manager Kenny Williamson lost his battle with cancer, the team announced Tuesday. Known as the “eggman” he was a basketball lifer who had spent more than 30 years around the game at…

  17. Video: Kyrie Irving turns Kris Humphries into a statue with a sick pass

    Nov 13, 2012, 11:15 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    A good way to gauge a player’s star value is to watch how opposing crowds treat him. With the Cavaliers visiting Brooklyn tonight, Kyrie Irving absolutely wowed the crowd with his insane handling and off the cuff passes, winning over the fans like he was Rocky in Russia. How good was Irving in a night…

  18. Rockets Royce White skips game, practice, to be sent to D-League

    Royce White

    UPDATE 10:19 pm: Royce White took to twitter to answer critics and defend himself on Tuesday night. He said first hat the flight to Detroit the Rockets had to take was not the issue. I’m most definitely* not AWOL… There are many things here ppl don’t know, #Honesty is what I’m sticking with. @houstonrockets “Luke…

  19. Video: Does Mike D’Antoni’s system fit with Lakers roster?

    Nov 13, 2012, 9:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Steve Nash of Canada and Kobe Bryant react during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Donny Marshall, former NBA player and current Comcast Sportsnet New England analyst, was on NBC Sports Network’s “Sports Talk” and is not sold that Mike D’Antoni’s system is best for the Lakers — normally the two-guard is just a space-the-floor shooter in his system and that is not going to keep Kobe Bryant happy. He…

  20. Warriors coach Jackson defends playing small, David Lee

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    David Lee

    It wasn’t coach Mark Jackson’s plan to play a lot of small ball at Golden State — he wanted Andrew Bogut to be the guy in the middle. But with Bogut out for much of the young season, Jackson has gone small, playing David Lee and Carl Landry as the Warriors front line a lot.…
