    Jan 9, 2014, 1:56 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Officially he has is a sprained left ankle. But when you consider Deron Williams’ ankle was treated with a cortisone shot plus platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections — plus he got a PRP injection and a cortisone shot in his right ankle joint to “relieve inflammation” — you had to know he would be out…

  2. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    The Warriors had a chance to do something no team in NBA history had on Wednesday, and that was end a seven-game road trip with an undefeated record. But the Nets have a little something going these days, and even without Deron Williams were able to get a hard-fought 102-98 victory that brought Golden State’s…

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors won their 10th in a row on Tuesday, besting a Bucks team that has won just seven times all season and is at the bottom of the league-wide standings. The games still need to be played, however, and Golden State allowed Milwaukee to hang around for a half or so before blowing them…

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Jan 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Winner: Luol Deng Deng is going to a team that desperately needs him. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ small forwards have a PER of 9.2 and yield a PER of 15.5 to opposing small forwards, according to 82Games.  That’s a horrific net PER of –6.3. Of the 150 positions in the NBA (five per team), only three have have…

    Kevin Love Ricky Rubio

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching one heck of a freshman quarterback… Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin, Corey Brewer, Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic (Minnesota’s starters).

    Jan 4, 2014, 11:00 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Simply put, a healthy Deron Williams is a game-changer for the Brooklyn Nets. Plays like this one, where Williams expertly uses his handles to cross up his defender before getting a shot to go as he’s fouled, are a prime example. [via The Brooklyn Game]

  10. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:22 AM EST

    Stephen Curry

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about what was really in your donkey meat… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. When he is going like he was in this game — especially in the third quarter when he had 14 of his 36 — there is nothing you can do.…

    Brooklyn Nets Johnson smiles on the bench after leaving their NBA basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder, in Oklahoma City

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates a three point shot against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    Back in the 1970s the NBA used to allow nicknames on jerseys, and they have decided to again for one game — Jan. 10 between the Heat and Nets. SLAM got an advanced peak at the jerseys. To be clear, that is Ray Allen (34, from his character in the movie “He Got Game”), LeBron…

  14. Kevin Garnett admits his rhythm off in Nets system

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:19 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    Putting players in a position to do what they do well and succeed is one of the biggest jobs as a coach. Look at the best — Gregg Popovich, Phil Jackson — and you find systems designed to get guys to do what they do well and not play to their weaknesses. Conversely, there is…

  15. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

    Dec 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    The Magic are in a rebuilding mode, and as their 9-20 record will tell you, that means that wins have been hard to come by this season. But a bright spot has been the play of Arron Afflalo, who has been consistently putting up big numbers — he’s posted his career high of 43 points…

  17. Report: If Nets don’t turn around, Kidd likely gone by All-Star Game

    Dec 27, 2013, 7:48 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets first mistake was hiring a coach with no experience — a guy who was going to need a learning curve — and putting him in charge of a veteran team with a one-year (two at best) title window. There was no margin for error. Yet everything has gone wrong. It started with injuries…

  18. Report: Kidd frustrated, calls out Nets; Garnett backs him

    Dec 26, 2013, 9:20 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    Shocking news, the Brooklyn Nets have a dysfunctional locker room. I’m not going to spend a lot of time kicking this dead horse, we’ve done that plenty in these parts, but we have to pass along this report. After the Bulls thumped the Nets on Christmas Day in front of a national television audience, Jason…

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

    Deron Williams

    When he traded Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge explained how he got enough assets to make the deal worthwhile to Boston. Ainge, via Mike Petraglia of WEEI: “Brooklyn showed a great deal of interest in putting the ‘Dream Team’ together, with expense…

  21. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  22. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  23. Jason Kidd, Brooklyn Nets come up empty against Chicago Bulls

    Dec 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EST

    Reggie Evans

    The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls woke up early, left on their sleeved Christmas pajamas and opened the NBA’s Christmas Day slate. Jason Kidd probably wishes he never got out of bed. A game after blasting his team for “kind of getting comfortable with losing,” Kidd oversaw Brooklyn’s 95-78 loss to Chicago on Wednesday, an…

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EST

    Derrick Rose

    The NBA has built a Christmas Day empire by featuring the league’s top teams and players on Dec. 25. It’s become an honor to play this day, and those in the league recognize the accomplishment of getting on the schedule. Fans see it too, annually expecting to see the NBA at its regular-season best. That’s…

  25. Jason Kidd says Nets “getting very close to just accepting losing”

    Dec 24, 2013, 11:27 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v. Philadelphia 76ers

    First it was Mike D’Antoni lashing out at Lakers fans, then Sacramento’s Mike Malone smacking his team around, now Jason Kidd doing the same with the Nets. Apparently NBA coaches took the Festivus “Airing of Grievances” part very seriously. Kidd was frustrated after his team played a close first half then just got blown out…
