  1. Grizzlies continue impressive start with road win over Thunder

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Marc Gasol Zach Randolph

    The Memphis Grizzlies look like a team ready to compete in the postseason. The Thunder look like a team still searching for answers. The result of the meeting between these two teams reflected that on Wednesday, as Memphis had little trouble in cruising to a convincing 107-97 win in Oklahoma City. When we last saw…

  2. NBC SportsTalk: Could Rockets be doing more to accommodate Royce White?

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:09 PM EDT

    Royce White

    There are no simple, easy answers with Royce White in Houston. He is a rookie frustrated with playing time — something a lot of rookies are — but his issues there should not be tied to the anxiety order that he is dealing with. Not completely, anyway. It’s messy. Wednesday on Sports Talk on the…

  3. Video: Jeff Green dunks all over Al Jefferson

    Nov 14, 2012, 9:59 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    This is just a monster posterization from the Celtics Jeff Green, as he drives along the baseline and explodes to go up and over Utah’s Al Jefferson for the one-handed slam. It didn’t even seem like Green would quite be able to get this to go down when he took off just outside the restricted…

  4. What is going on with the struggling Miami Heat defense?

    Nov 14, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates win over Atlanta Hawks with Bosh and Allen during their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    If you haven’t been watching, if you didn’t look at the numbers, you could easily miss it because the Heat are 6-2 and Miami remains the city you are going to have to go through to get an NBA title. But the Miami Heat defense has been bad this year. They are 24th in the…

  5. People Magazine says Mario Chalmers is one of the sexiest people alive

    Nov 14, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Image (1) Mario_Chalmers.jpg for post 2631

    I am not the person who really should judge this, but I have to ask the question: Is Mario Chalmers the sexiest man in Alaska? People Magazine thinks so. The publication does an annual “sexiest man alive” edition, one that somehow bloggers seem rarely to be a part of. Strange. Anyway, this year to break…

  6. Video: Worst. Basketball. Moment. Ever. (Thanks Belgium)

    Nov 14, 2012, 6:33 PM EDT

    NBA basketball spaulding

    I have gone and watched my 9-year-old neighbor’s basketball games, and I have never seen anything like this video out of a Belgian league of some age (hat tip to The Big Lead). Let’s go over what is wrong here. First, notice the player in the dark uniform is shooting a free throw, which he…

  7. Dwyane Wade a game-time decision against Clippers

    Nov 14, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    UPDATE 10:05 p.m. ET: Wade will play tonight, according to the Heat (via Ken Berger of CBSSports.com) Dwyane Wade will be a game-time decision for Wednesday night’s nationally televised contest against the Clippers at Staples Center, according to multiple reports. Wade did not practice on Wednesday, and is expected to get an X-ray well before…

  8. Magic Johnson “mourning” Lakers not hiring Phil Jackson. Ugh.

    Nov 14, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Magic Johnson

    I have the utmost respect for Magic Johnson the basketball player. I think he gets shortchanged in GOAT conversations, a guy who broke the mold and would have fit it brilliantly in today’s NBA undergoing a positional revolution because guys are trying to develop the varried skill set he had. I think Johnson should be…

  9. Video: Chris Bosh makes cameo on NBC sitcom “Go On”

    Nov 14, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh

    I know that some of you, because you have been glued to League Pass, are behind on watching episodes of “Go On,” the NBC sitcom with Mathew Perry where he’s a sports talk radio host (Tuesdays at 9 ET, 8 CT). That means on Tuesday night you missed a Chris Bosh cameo. You know, the…

  10. Stern says NBA revenues should be $5 billion this season

    Nov 14, 2012, 3:14 PM EDT

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    During the NBA lockout, we all got frustrated watching the owners and argue over how to divide up $4 billion in revenue. Billion. With a “B.” Now, make that $5 billion. That is what NBA Commissioner David Stern said speaking Tuesday at Beyond Sport United conference in New York, according to the Associated Press. The…

  11. Hedo Turkoglu has setback with hand, to miss another month

    Nov 14, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic Hedo Turkoglu complains after he picked up second foul against New York Knicks in NBA basketball game in New York

    The Orlando Magic are a scrappy team. They are off to a 2-5 start but they are not making it easy on anybody. They just don’t have a lot of firepower and what veterans they can trust have been out — Jameer Nelson for a sixth game in a row Wednesday, for example. Then there…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Kyrie Irving hates the cinematic dunks (VIDEO)

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.…

  19. 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…

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

    Nov 14, 2012, 10:24 AM EDT

    rasheed wallace knicks

    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…
