  1. Monday night NBA Grades: Lance Stephenson with the triple double

    Nov 12, 2013, 2:12 AM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while weeping that Lionel Messi will be out 6-8 weeks…. Lance Stephenson, Indiana Pacers. He had a triple-double with 13 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. He has played the most complete, efficient basketball of his young NBA career this season and it showed…

  2. Derrick Rose leaves game late after suffering hamstring injury (VIDEO)

    Nov 11, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The Bulls and the Cavs played a largely defensive-oriented game devoid of very many highlights, and the one that Derrick Rose provided late as his team was pulling away forced him to leave the game with what was later described as a minor hamstring injury. Rose gave us a glimpse of his signature explosiveness as…

  3. Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving finish even as Bulls pull away to beat Cavaliers

    Nov 11, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    There was plenty of excitement surrounding the first ever matchup between Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving on Monday, but the game itself was largely devoid of any fireworks. Irving and Rose essentially played to a standstill in a contest that was mostly defense-oriented, and one that the Bulls pulled away to win easily by a final…

  4. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  5. For first time ever, Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving face off Monday

    Nov 11, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Kyrie Irving is in his third NBA season; Derrick Rose is in his fifth. However, the two leading faces of a generation of young, star point guards have never faced off — until tonight. Blame injuries. Last season Rose was out all year. In Irving’s rookie year he missed 15 games and Rose missed 27…

  6. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  7. League reverses position, to allow Derrick Rose, others to wear kinesio tape

    Nov 6, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Yesterday, the league came to Derrick Rose and told him he had to stop wearing kinesio tape on his neck, something he had done since the second game of the season after tweaking his neck. When asked first asked, the league said it was banning kinesio tape in general, but after speaking to the NBA players union…

  8. Rose says league asked him to stop wearing tape on his neck

    Nov 6, 2013, 12:50 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Because Derrick Rose hasn’t had enough problems adjusting to this season… He tweaked a neck muscle in the Bulls season opener against the Heat, so by Game 2 on Halloween against the Knicks he was wearing some Kinesio-Tape that came up on the back of his neck to give him support. Now the league has asked…

  9. Study finds growing up in wealthier neighborhoods increases chances of making NBA

    Nov 5, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    AP Money Found

    The narrative is a strong one and something linked to the NBA today through guys like Derrick Rose — he grew up in a poor area of Chicago where basketball was his escape from the troubles around him. The game eventually provided him an escape from the neighborhood. LeBron James has a similar tale, a…

  10. Bulls coach Thibodeau says refs penalizing Derrick Rose for being a ‘nice guy’

    Nov 5, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose isn’t getting to the free throw line as much as he traditionally has in seasons past, and Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau feels like Rose’s on-court demeanor may have something to do with that. In 2012, Rose averaged 6.1 free throw attempts per game, and in his 2011 MVP season, he got to…

  11. Russell Westbrook cleared medically, will play for Thunder Sunday

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook takes a break on the court against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Remember how Russell Westbrook had to have a second knee surgery to clean up a loose stitch and that was going to force him to miss the first month of the season or so? What they meant was two games. Westbrook has cleared all his medical benchmarks and is physically ready to go, so he…

  12. Derrick Rose: “I’m not playing well right now”

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The numbers are just ugly any way you slice them up. Derrick Rose is shooting 28.8 percent overall and 27.6 percent from three so far this young season. He has taken nearly half his shots (48 percent) inside the restricted area but is shooting just 36 percent on those. He is 5-of-22 outside the paint,…

  13. Sixers’ Tony Wroten with the monster rejection against Derrick Rose (VIDEO)

    Nov 3, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Tony Wroten

    It’s not often that Derrick Rose is on the wrong side of these types of highlights, but given the way the Sixers erased the Bulls’ 18-point third quarter lead to come away with their third straight victory to start the season, the guys on the tam who made it happen deserve a little shine. Rose…

  14. Sixers improve to 3-0 with comeback win over Bulls

    Nov 2, 2013, 11:45 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Michael Carter-Williams

    This is not at all how this was supposed to happen in Philadelphia this season. But after three games and three wins, it’s moved beyond a fluke occurrence and is now becoming a story. The Sixers beat the Bulls 107-104 on Saturday to improve their undefeated record to 3-0 on the season. Chicago and Miami…

  16. The Extra Pass Thursday Roundup: Stephen Curry could be greatest shooter ever

    Nov 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    How good were Stephen Curry and Chris Paul in the shootout between the Clippers and Warriors last night? It’s almost impossible to be hyperbolic, both about the performances and the players themselves. Don’t believe me? Try this one on for size: Stephen Curry is the best shooter of all-time. You’re squirming, aren’t you? It doesn’t…

  17. Thursday night NBA grades: That Chris Paul guy is pretty good

    Nov 1, 2013, 2:50 AM EDT

    BKN-WARRIORS-CLIPPERS

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to bad British announcers call Game 7 of the Heat/Spurs Finals last year…. Chris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers. That was the kind of performance that reminds you CP3 is the very best point guard in the NBA — 42 points, 15…

  18. Derrick Rose hits the game-winner to send Bulls past Knicks (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Derrick Rose was not at his best in Thursday night’s nationally-televised matchup against the Knicks, but he rose to the occasion when it mattered most. With the Bulls trailing by one and 5.7 seconds remaining, Rose drove baseline, then stopped and elevated for the high-arching floater over two defenders that fell through the net to…

  19. Derrick Rose gets the sick bounce pass to Luol Deng for the finish (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose was playing through a neck injury against the Knicks on Thursday, which may be part of the reason for his 2-of-11 shooting performance in 16 first-half minutes. But his court awareness and ability to get the ball to his teammates remained as sharp as ever, and it was showcased nicely on this crisp…

  20. Anthony Davis talks Pelican chemistry, his game and NBA 2K14

    Oct 31, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    While you were looking at Dwight Howard or Derrick Rose this preseason, the New Orleans Pelicans put together a nice little 7-1 record. Then on opening night the Pelicans had a 16-point second half lead against the contending Pacers, a lead the more experienced Pacers were able to make evaporate behind some strong play from…

  21. What sore neck? Derrick Rose says he will play vs. Knicks Thursday

    Oct 31, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Despite what a few selfish Bulls fans and some talk radio folks think, Derrick Rose is a tough guy. Mentally and physically. He played through a lot of injuries his first couple years (including a painful toe issue at the time of his knee injury). So while Tom Thibodeau called him a “game time decision”…

  22. Wednesday Night’s NBA Grades: How about that Michael Carter-Williams?

    Oct 31, 2013, 1:50 AM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    Our grades from Tuesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while throwing back a few bottles of snake venom with your buddies. Michael Carter Williams, Philadelphia 76ers. His first NBA bucket came on a steal and coast-to-coast drive and slam against the Miami Heat. It doesn’t get much better than that… except it did.…

  23. Norris Cole’s crossover breaks Derrick Rose’s ankles

    Oct 30, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    Norris Cole

    Welcome back to the NBA, Derrick Rose. He looked rusty on this play, where Miami’s Norris Cole brings the ball up quickly, starts to move towards a Chris Andersen screen — Rose starts to anticipate the contact and Cole crosses him up and gets the wide-open jumper. Rose says he wasn’t rusty, that he shot…

  24. Tuesday night’s NBA Grades: How about that Lakers bench?

    Oct 30, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Xavier Henry, J.J. Redick

    Our grades from Tuesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while watching crazy big wave surfing videos. The Los Angeles Lakers’ bench. The Lakers bench played free, played Mike D’Antoni ball and scored 76 points including the final 46 the Lakers scored to spark an opening night upset win over the Lakers. Xavier…

  25. Heat begin title defense with opening night blowout win over Bulls

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    The Bulls were one of the fashionable preseason picks to dethrone the Heat this season, considering the return of Derrick Rose, the way Chicago has historically defended under Tom Thibodeau, and the fact that Miami is trying to become the first team to reach the Finals in four straight seasons since the Celtics did it 27…
