    Jan 16, 2014, 11:25 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    The Lakers’ Nick Young has a right to be pissed about the hard foul to the head from Alex Len of the Suns — Len should get a game suspension for that. But when Young bounced up he threw punches and that is going to get him in more trouble with the league than Len…

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

    Jan 14, 2014, 11:43 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz

    The Suns’ Gerald Green got a lot of play last night for his impressive reverse throwdown on a breakaway, but there were no defenders in his way on that one. That’s why I think J.J. Hickson had the best dunk of the night — the Nuggets’ big man went up as the Jazz’s Derrick Favors…

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Minnesota Timberwolves

    That play was sloppy. The Suns were down one with 16.4 seconds left for a last shot, and Goran Dragic came off a Channing Frye pick, got open and kind of fumbled the ball, then regained control and went up, had no shot and made a jump pass that almost went into the first row.…

  15. 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.

  20. Lakers to start Kendall Marshall at point. Because what other choice do they have?

    Jan 3, 2014, 1:14 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before the season the plan was Steve Nash at the point for the Lakers. An ongoing nerve root issue that impacts his back and neck has scuttled that plan so far.

    Jan 1, 2014, 7:01 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    You see it all the time in the NBA: A point guard comes off a pick and attacks the paint only to find the opposing team’s center there waiting for him cutting off the lane, so the guard pretty much charges into the big man, falls back, flails his arms as he throws up a…
