  1. Ricky Rubio may be back sooner than expected

    Nov 25, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Ricky Rubio shoots a free throw during their NBA game against Los Angeles Clippers

    The Timberwolves started the season doing a pretty good job of fighting through the rash of injuries the team was dealing with, getting off to an unexpected 5-2 start. Since then, as more and more players were forced to miss time, and even with Kevin Love being back in the lineup, the wheels have started…

  2. Rashard Lewis suddenly out of the Heat’s rotation

    Nov 25, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Rashard Lewis

    Rashard Lewis began the season playing fairly well in Miami, perhaps even better than most expected. He was getting close to 20 minutes per game off the bench in the Heat’s first six games of the season, and filling in productively offensively in his time on the court. But since Miami has been at full…

  3. Mavericks broadcaster disgusted with Kobe’s one-legged Dirk shot in Dallas (VIDEO)

    Nov 25, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Kobe Bryant didn’t attempt a shot during the entire first quarter of the Lakers blowout win over the Mavericks on Saturday. When he did finally get a shot up early in the second, the fans in Dallas — or at least a member of the broadcast team — weren’t real happy with what they saw.…

  4. Reminder: Jeremy Lin likely to be voted in as an All-Star starter

    Nov 25, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Knicks Lin talks during a new conference before the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    This is not exactly breaking news, because (A) it hasn’t actually happened yet, and (B) it’s been widely speculated about since last season. But it is worth reminding you about nonetheless. When the NBA’s All-Star festivities descend on Houston in February, Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin is more than likely to appear in the mid-season…

  5. Paul Pierce is playing more like Ray Allen this season

    Nov 25, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    Maybe the answer to the question “how are the Celtics going to replace Ray Allen?” was always there, we just didn’t expect it. How about a little Paul Pierce. If you’ve watched some Celtics games this season you have seen Pierce, a shot creator for most of his career, working more off the ball coming…

  6. Thoughts and prayers with Kevin McHale and his family after the passing of their daughter

    Nov 25, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v New Orleans Hornets

    Rockets head coach Kevin McHale has been away from the team since November 12, spending time with his family while dealing with the serious illness of his daughter. The organization announced today that she has passed away. Sasha McHale, 23, lost her battle with lupus, according to the Star Tribune. Here’s the official statement from…

  7. Pau Gasol playing through knee tendinitis

    Nov 25, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Gasol drives on Dallas Mavericks Murphy during their NBA game in Dallas

    Pau Gasol found himself on the bench for the fourth quarter of Friday’s loss to the Grizzlies, thanks to a lethargic and uninspired effort that was evident to anyone who was watching. He complained about his lack of post touches afterward, and talked about how getting those touches would help him get into a rhythm…

  8. Report: Andrew Bogut targeting return to court next Saturday

    Nov 25, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    He’s been getting specialized shots to help speed up the recovery of his ankle, the one he had surgery on this past summer. The one that has kept him out of training camp and all but four limited-minutes games for Golden State this season. But Andrew Bogut is expected to be back on the practice…

  9. Harrison Barnes destroys Nikola Pekovic with the vicious slam dunk (VIDEO)

    Nov 25, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    You know this dunk from Harrison barnes on Nikola Pekovic is insane for a couple of reasons. One, your eyes just tell you so. Barnes cutting full speed to the basket, and David Lee hitting him in stride perfectly with the no-look pass before Barnes elevates and detonates (shout out to Tom Leander) on Pekovic…

  10. Lakers get back on track with 26-point destruction of Mavericks

    Nov 25, 2012, 12:50 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    This is how it’s supposed to happen. After a disappointing two-game stretch that had the Lakers questioning their roles and searching for answers, it took less than a full game in Dallas for the team to find its way. L.A. dominated from the start, and led by as many as 37 points on the way…

  11. Heat come from seven down in final two minutes to beat the Cavs

    Nov 24, 2012, 11:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates his game-winning basket against Cleveland Cavaliers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    The Cavaliers had no business being in this game with the Heat, in Miami, without the injured Kyrie Irving. But they weren’t only in it, they were on track to win it — until the final two minutes, when it all fell apart. The Heat beat Cleveland 110-108 on Saturday, but they waited until almost…

  12. Wizards fall to 0-11 after heartbreaking double-OT loss to Bobcats

    Nov 24, 2012, 11:02 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    It isn’t so much that the Wizards have yet to win a game this season. It’s that the losses seem to get more and more heartbreaking each and every time. Washington fell to 0-11 on Saturday, after taking Charlotte to double-overtime before eventually losing by a final of 108-106. Even though the Wizards were typically…

  13. Robin Lopez says Suns made a ‘fair offer’ to him in free agency, but needed a fresh start

    Nov 24, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Robin Lopez, Marcin Gortat

    The Robin Lopez era in Phoenix lasted four seasons, and had its ups and downs. But ultimately, when Lopez was a restricted free agent last summer, the Suns couldn’t come to an agreement to retain his services, so they worked out a sign-and-trade that sent Lopez to New Orleans. We’re only 11 games in, but…

  14. Andrew Bynum out indefinitely, no timeline to join Sixers

    Nov 24, 2012, 8:34 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia rolled the dice this summer on making Andrew Bynum their future — they traded Andre Iguodala for him. They sold the fans on how they could build around him. It’s far too early to say it came up snake eyes, but at the very least this is not going to be an easy point…

  15. Tyson Chandler flagrantly fouls Omer Asik by elbowing him in the throat (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler reacts after drawing a foul and scoring a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    In the third quarter of the Knicks blowout loss in Houston on Friday, Tyson Chandler appeared to let his frustration get the best of him. After Omer Asik is called for an over-the-back foul while fighting Chandler for a rebound, Chandler clearly (and deliberately) swings his elbow at Asik, and hits him directly in the…

  16. Blake Griffin’s incredible block on Deron Williams in super-slow motion (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Brooklyn Nets

    We showed you Blake Griffin‘s insane block on Deron WIlliams last night, because hey, that’s what we’re here for. But the NBA recognizes greatness, and has the cameras in place to give us a more special look at plays like this when they happen. This super-slow motion look at it makes it seem even more…

  17. Doc Rivers talk gets Celtics back in their groove

    Nov 24, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Boston Celtics, Paul Pierce

    Last Wednesday night San Antonio went into Boston and pretty much did whatever they wanted against the Celtics, winning easily 112-100. They did it for a few reasons — Tim Duncan is moving like he is 25 again, for one — but in large part it was because the Spurs players stuck to their roles…

  18. Report: Lakers reach out to Mickael Pietrus

    Nov 24, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Celtics guard Pietrus reacts after a three point shot in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta.

    This likely isn’t going anywhere for the same reason it hasn’t gone anywhere with Indiana or San Antonio or a host of other NBA teams. But a day after a report surfaced that the Lakers had some interest in Raja Bell if he reaches a buyout deal with Utah, comes this report about the Lakers…

  19. Gordon Hayward hits the game-winner to drop the Kings (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Gordon Hayward

    The Kings led the Jazz by 13 points with eight and a half minutes to play, but funny things tend to happen in Utah, especially to a team that’s now 3-9 on the season with the worst record in the Western Conference. This game-ending play was one of them, as Gordon Hayward somehow finds himself…

  20. Royce White still not with Rockets, attacks Wojnarowski on twitter

    Nov 24, 2012, 1:29 PM EDT

    Royce White

    One of the key lessons in life, for some people one of the hard ones to learn, is to pick your battles. When to let some things just go in pursuit of a more important, larger goal. With that in mind, we bring you two bits of news about Royce White, the No. 16 pick…
