  1. Report: Knicks may get Christmas present of Stoudemire return

    Nov 30, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Stoudemire celebrates a basket against the Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA basketball game in New York

    The Knicks may be getting a huge Christmas present, and like parents everywhere Christmas Day coach Mike Woodson is going to be asking himself “where do I put this?” Amare Stoudemire is eyeing a return somewhere around Christmas, reports Marc Berman at the New York Post. Amar’e Stoudemire’s goal is to return around Christmas, with…

  2. Suns to offer fans money-back guarantee for Dec. 6 game against Mavericks

    Nov 30, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Gorin Dragic, Samardo Samuels

    The Suns are struggling to create fan interest in the post-Steve Nash era. Attendance is down, and the team, while having a few players on the roster who casual NBA fans should recognize, is lacking overall in any real star power. But the team has competed for most of its home games, and even had…

  3. Video: Dwight Howard loses shooting contest to a hockey mascot

    Nov 30, 2012, 10:54 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Right now the Los Angeles Kings should be basking in the glow of winning the first Stanley Cup in franchise history and working on their title defense. Instead, they are locked out. (And NBA fans, before you mock the NHL for locking out a second time costing them games, know that some owners were grumbling…

  4. Popovich says he understands fans concerns when he sits stars

    Nov 30, 2012, 10:19 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antionio Spurs - Game Five

    Gregg Popovich has done this before. More than once. Three times last season he rested his stars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all at once. And while David Stern never got involved until last night, fans at those games were not happy (and there was some grumbling from some quarters of the media).…

  5. Video: Kenneth Faried and the art of the chase-down block

    Nov 30, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Kenneth Faried

    If Denver had figured out a way to win on Thursday night against Golden State — if Andre Iguodala had released his three just a split second earlier so his game-winning shot was out of his hands before the red light went on — then Kenneth Faried may have been the “Man of the Match”…

  6. David Stern: Be careful where you step in punishing Popovich, Spurs

    Nov 30, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    File photo of NBA Commissioner Stern speaks in New York

    Three times last season, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich rested Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker in the same game. He’s done it before then as well. And he is far from the only coach to rest multiple key players in a game — Doc Rivers, Phil Jackson and other coaches have done it. And…

  7. Breaking down last three minutes of Warriors 106-105 win over Nuggets.

    Nov 30, 2012, 4:39 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson (11)

    This game was crazy. And fun. Both teams had and gave up double-digit leads. The end involved missed shots, replay and about as close to a game going the other way as it can. For something a little different, rather than a traditional recap, let’s just recap in some detail the final three minutes of…

  8. Ray Allen hits a clutch three to help Heat bury the Spurs (VIDEO)

    Nov 30, 2012, 12:05 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat

    This game wasn’t about who won or lost necessarily, considering Gregg Popovich’s decision to send home his three best players before it even got started. The controversy created by that move will be discussed for days, and maybe longer depending on what David Stern has in mind for Popovich and the Spurs as punishment for…

  9. Heat barely beat undermanned Spurs, but controversy will linger beyond this game

    Nov 29, 2012, 11:23 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    The Heat did what they’ve been doing all season long on Thursday, which was play down to the level of their competition for the majority of the night, before ending up with a win after all is said and done. Yes, Miami took care of the Spurs 105-100, but it wasn’t the same Spurs team…

  10. David Stern releases statement apologizing to fans for Spurs resting healthy stars against Heat

    Nov 29, 2012, 8:38 PM EDT

    David-Stern-all-star-2012

    When Gregg Popovich decided to rest Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili for Thursday night’s nationally televised game in Miami against the world champion Heat, it may have been disappointing, but it certainly wasn’t a surprise. Popovich has done this for years, resting perfectly healthy players for no reason other than he feels it’s…

  11. Magic players and coaches hold team meeting to address issues

    Nov 29, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    On the surface, this doesn’t seem to be that newsworthy; after all, shouldn’t players and coaches sit down and hash things out if the team is getting blown out on a regular basis? Maybe, but that’s not necessarily standard operating procedure in the NBA. There are few practices in between the heavy slate of games…

  12. Report: Mickael Pietrus to sign with the Raptors

    Nov 29, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the situation in Toronto, where the Raptors are 3-13 on the season, definitely fits the description. That might explain the team’s latest personnel move, which is the decision to bring in Mickael Pietrus to help turn things around. Sam Amick of USA Today reports that the Raptors have…

  13. James Harden welcomed back to OKC with rejections from Ibaka and Westbrook (VIDEO)

    Kevin Durant, James Harden

    It was a rough night for James Harden and the Rockets on Wednesday, where the Thunder’s former Sixth Man of the Year wasn’t able to do much of anything against his former teammates. The Thunder brought the pain early with these two blocks from Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka that occurred midway through the first…

  14. Suns send rookie Kendall Marshall to the D-League

    Nov 29, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Thomas Robinson, Kendall Marshall

    The Phoenix Suns have assigned Kendall Marshall to the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League, according to a team release. Marshall was the 13th overall pick in this year’s draft, but has been unable to crack the rotation with Goran Dragic and Sebastian Telfair being more legitimate options while the team’s season is still…

  15. Kyle Lowry says Raptors not dead but “five feet under”

    Nov 29, 2012, 6:27 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Lowry reacts after missing a free throw against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    So, you’re saying there’s a chance? Off to a 3-13 start, the Raptors are not only disappointing the optimists in Toronto that thought they could sneek into the playoffs, they are disappointing the pessimists who didn’t expect them to be this bad. Their defense, which kept them competitive for much of last season, is giving…

  16. Rajon Rondo suspended two games for fight with Nets; Wallace, Garnett fined

    Nov 29, 2012, 4:59 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo got off lighter than many expected, apparently because the fight Wednesday between the Celtics and Nets was a lot of pushing without an actual punch thrown. Rondo has been suspended two games by the league for the incident, Celtics GM Danny Ainge first announced on WEEI radio in Boston then confirmed by the…

  17. Duncan, Parker, Ginobili all to sit vs. Heat Thursday

    Nov 29, 2012, 4:38 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker

    Well, this Thursday night showdown between two of the league’s best just got a lot less interesting. San Antonio is taking on Miami Thursday night in what is the Spurs second night of a back-to-back and their fourth game in five nights, plus it is the final game of a six-game road trip. So as…

  18. Harlem Globetrotter with one serious backboard-shattering dunk

    Nov 29, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    A player of the Harlem Globetrotters dun

    Now that is how you shatter a backboard. That is former University of Cincinatti star and current Harlem Globetrotter Darnell Wilks with the truly impressive dunk during a Globetrotters game in Ecuador. In the USA there are breakaway rims and major arenas have another backboard set up in back to be wheeled out and put…

  19. Rajon Rondo meets with league officials regarding fight

    Nov 29, 2012, 3:38 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

    The suspension is coming. Probably a long one. But the league is doing its due dilligence before rendering a verdict out of the fight between Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries, between the Boston Celtics and Brooklyn Nets Wednesday night. Rondo met with league officials Thursday, tweets A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. #Celticstalk: Rondo spoke with…

  20. Gerald Wallace gets flopping warning for move on ‘Melo

    Nov 29, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Yup, that’s a flop. Brooklyn’s Gerald Wallace was trying to get back into the play and harass Carmelo Anthony, Wallace made contact and Anthony used his elbow to create some space, but the Wallace sold it like he was going for an Oscar nomination. This is Wallace’s first warning. There is no fine, unless he…
