  1. Gentry says changes coming to Suns starting lineup

    Nov 18, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    The fact that the Suns lost to the Miami Heat on Saturday, even with Dwyane Wade out due to injury and LeBron James playing through illness, wasn’t by itself cause for concern. But the way the team started, flat once again and failing to score in the game’s first 4:14 on the way to a…

  2. Coach Rasheed Wallace? He reportedly wants it to happen.

    Nov 18, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace

    Rasheed Wallace’s teammates love him — because of his demeanor, because he understands the game. Guys listen to him — and that’s the first thing a coach needs. So why not NBA coach Rasheed Wallace? Don’t laugh. He wants it to happen, his friends told Yahoo Sports. “I know for a fact that’s his aspiration,”…

  3. Video: Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan with steals, lobs, slams

    Nov 18, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    There are other contenders for the title, but the Clippers remain the king of highlights. In part because they have Blake Griffin and D’Andre Jordan — the most athletic front line in the NBA. But mostly because they have Chris Paul — watch the lobs on the second of these dunks, almost a volleyball set…

  4. LeBron plays through illness to help Heat take care of Suns

    Nov 18, 2012, 1:53 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — A little more than 90 minutes before tip-off, the status of LeBron James was still uncertain. With Dwyane Wade already ruled out for the second straight game with a foot injury, Miami may have been in trouble if James too was unable to go. Thankfully for the Heat, James found a way to…

  5. Report: Sixers think Bynum’s knee setback due to bowling

    Nov 18, 2012, 12:44 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    There is no denying Andrew Bynum’s talent, no denying how good he can be on the court when focused. He’s an All-Star for a reason. But the Lakers were willing to consider trading him in part because they had concerns about his maturity and about that focus. Which brings us to this report from Brian…

  6. Lakers say any changes to remaining coaching staff will be D’Antoni’s decision

    Nov 17, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    New York Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni reacts during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    When the Lakers parted ways with Mike Brown just over a week ago and replaced him by bringing in Mike D’Antoni, the rest of the coaching staff, to this point, has remained in place. Bernie Bickerstaff has assumed the head coaching duties for the last four games, though his reign is expected to come to…

    Nov 17, 2012, 7:35 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Jose Calderon

    Rajon Rondo singlehandedly took apart the Toronto Raptors, dishing out 20 assists in Boston’s 107-89 win on Saturday. And actually, he thought he should have had more. From A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com: “He was actually mad about the 20 assists,” said teammate Courtney Lee. “He thought he could have gotten 30.” It was the…

  8. Kings hold players-only meeting after loss to Hawks

    Nov 17, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    Rodney Motte, DeMarcus Cousins

    The Sacramento Kings fell to 2-7 on the season after dropping a lopsided game at home to the Hawks on Friday. The team’s record isn’t a surprise to the league pundits who predicted yet another rough season in Sacramento, but the players who have to live with it day in and day out are already…

  9. Report: Hawks not interested in trading Josh Smith for Pau Gasol

    Nov 17, 2012, 4:31 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    There’s a certain percentage of Lakers fans that constantly go back and forth about their feelings for Pau Gasol. One month he’s exactly the kind of skilled, versatile big man that is vital to a team’s championship hopes, the next month he’s soft and these people want to see him traded out of town. The…

  10. Dwyane Wade ruled out, LeBron James a game time decision against Suns

    Nov 17, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Dwayne Wade, LeBron James

    UPDATE 8:05 p.m. ET: LeBron James will be in the starting lineup tonight in Phoenix, though Erik Spoelstra did say before the game that they’ll be monitoring his vitals very closely. The schedule-makers didn’t do the Suns any favors, but some injury concerns from their next opponent may give them a bit of a break…

  11. Kobe Bryant is NBA’s leading scorer and D’Antoni could keep him there

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant had a pretty standard night for himself Friday against the Suns compared to his past couple seasons — 31 points on a not terribly efficient 10-of-24 shooting but getting to the line a lot (10-of-11 from the stripe). With that night, Kobe has averaged 26.9 points per game and moved past James Harden…

  12. J.R. Smith says Jerryd Bayless may have ‘little man’s complex’ after altercation

    Nov 17, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    J R Smith, Tony Allen

    Late in the second quarter of the Grizzlies’ win over the Knicks on Friday, J.R. Smith and Jerryd Bayless got into it briefly, and received double technicals for the extracurricular activity. Smith appeared to catch Bayless with an elbow after curling around a Rasheed Wallace screen, and Bayless retaliated with a shot to the face.…

  13. Royce White says he’s prepared to walk away from NBA over dispute with Rockets

    Nov 17, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Royce White

    The situation between Royce White and the Houston Rockets appears to getting worse before it gets better. And that’s if it gets better at all, a prospect that’s becoming less likely with each passing tweet and interview that White stubbornly continues to put out there. The short version of what’s going on is this: White…

  14. Lakers coaching search gets the Taiwanese animation treatment, and it’s spectacular (VIDEO)

    Nov 17, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni smiles during a media conference after practice at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo, California

    The Taiwanese animation studio NMA likes to have some fun at the expense of the NBA from time to time, so it’s no surprise the folks there took on the biggest story of the early 2012-13 season: the Lakers search for a new head coach. L.A. definitely could have handled things better, from the timing…

  15. Video: Pistons dunk all over Orlando Magic (and still lose)

    Nov 17, 2012, 8:15 AM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Greg Monroe

    It’s the NBA, it’s all about the wins. That’s what matters. So for the record Orlando ended the game on a 5-0 run to win 110-106. But the Pistons still dunked all over them. Above you’ve got my favorite from Tayshaun Prince, plus a quality throw down from Jason Maxiell. Then below you can see some…

  16. Grizzlies knock Knicks from ranks of undefeated

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:32 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Rasheed Wallace

    Here’s a good one for your friends who think they know basketball, but maybe don’t follow the day-to-day happenings of the NBA all that closely. The best record in basketball now belongs to the Memphis Grizzlies, as they had no trouble taking care of the previously undefeated Knicks by a final of 105-95. New York…

    Nov 17, 2012, 1:38 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    The Lakers announced on Friday that Steve Nash would be out at least another week as he continues to recover from the non-displaced leg fracture that has sidelined him for the last seven games. Nash will miss new head coach Mike D’Antoni’s expected debut this Sunday at home against the Rockets, and will likely miss…

    NBA Hall of Famer Abdul-Jabbar smiles as he is interviewed after a bronze statue of himself was unveiled in Los Angeles

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, and he played on five championship teams as a member of the Lakers.

    Kevin Martin, Kyle Singler

    Kevin Martin of the Oklahoma City Thunder became the third player to receive a warning for flopping under the NBA’s new policy, but his infraction was a little bit different than those who have been warned earlier this season. While J.J. Barea and Donald Sloan received similar warnings for infractions that occurred on the defensive…

  20. Andrew Bynum says he has setback with knee, timetable unchanged

    Nov 16, 2012, 7:36 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Ugh. Watch the video above and you can see Andrew Bynum no longer has his hair straitened. That’s almost the biggest news. He also talks about a setback with his knee rehab. Which is scarier than his hair for Sixers fans. Well, probably scarier. Earlier this week it was announced he would not return to…
