    Dec 12, 2013, 2:21 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the association on a busy Wednesday night. Amar’e Stoudemire, New York Knicks. Stoudemire played 30 minutes. Stoudemire was clutch, hitting a key jumper with less than 3 minutes to go after the Bulls had stormed from 23 points back to tie the game. Stoudemire played good interior defense. Stoudemire showed a…

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:02 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Dallas had a 10-point lead with 8 minutes left and still were up 6 with less than two minutes to go, but no lead is safe when Golden State is at home. No lead is safe against Stephen Curry Curry had a four-point play a minute before that allowed Golden State to get back from…

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    After watching two of the league’s best starting lineups duke it out in Indiana, let’s check in on the best and worst lineups around the league so far this season. Best Net Efficiency Rating (minimum 150 minutes) Houston: Patrick Beverley-James Harden-Chandler Parsons-Terrence Jones-Dwight Howard Net efficiency is the difference between a team’s offensive rating and…

  4. The Extra Pass: Five quick ways to improve the league; plus Monday’s Recaps

    Dwight Howard

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

  5. Monday night NBA Grades: DeMarcus Cousins was in beast mode

    Dec 10, 2013, 3:14 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Sacramento Kings

      Here is our nightly look at some of the noteworthy things around the NBA, the things you missed while glued to a toilet seat at Home Depot. DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings. Note to Rudy Gay: Get this guy the ball. Not like you did with Jonas Valanciunas — actually get Cousins the rock. Cousins…

  6. Kyle Korver breaks record for consecutive games making a three (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 9:23 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Ray Allen couldn’t do it. Neither could Reggie Miller or Stephen Curry or any of the other three-point marksman you can name. Kyle Korver has now made a three in 90 consecutive games, breaking the record Dana Barros set in 1996. He did it midway through the first quarter from above the break on the…

  7. Kyle Korver will fire from arc Friday to set new NBA all-time three point streak

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:02 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Dana Barros, a little point guard out of Massachusetts who got to play for the Celtics as part of a 14-year NBA career, and while there he set a record: Eighty-nine consecutive games with a made three. If Kyle Korver knocks down a three Friday night when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers Korver will…

  8. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    brook lopez joe johnson kg

    NEW YORK — If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…

  9. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

  10. Sunday night NBA Grades: Turns out Kevin Durant is good at basketball

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:55 AM EST

    Oklahoma Thunder v Utah Jazz

    Maybe it’s the remnants of the tryptophan talking, but I am handing out nothing but “A” grades tonight… except for the Knicks. I’m feeling generous. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. How about this line for KD: 32 points on 66.7 percent shooting, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, 4 steals, 4 blocks. He did pretty much everything…

  11. Russell Westbrook hits the game-winning three to send Thunder to overtime win over Warriors (VIDEO)

    Nov 29, 2013, 11:15 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook looks on during a timeout against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    The Thunder and the Warriors played an exciting and competitive game on Friday that required an overtime period for the contest to be decided. The extra session wasn’t pretty overall, with plenty of possessions ending with a poor shot selection and with both teams combining to shoot just 5-of-17 over the game’s final five minutes.…

  12. George Karl thinks Iguodala was Mark Jackson’s mole, still ticked about Jackson’s playoff “tricks”

    Nov 29, 2013, 11:02 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl watches his team play against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoffs in Denver

    Denver looked like a team that could do a lot of damage in the playoffs last season – they won 57 games, the players bought into the style George Karl was preaching, and they were a disruptive if not elite defense. Then Danilo Gallinari went down and they were never the same. On either end…

  13. The Extra Pass: Nets believe they’re headed in the right direction, and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:10 AM EST

    joe johnson steve blake

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  14. John Wall: ‘I’m the best point guard in the league’

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall has played pretty well lately. In his last three games, he’s averaging 33.0 points on 61.4 percent shooting, 6.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest. The Wizards are 2-1 in that span. It’s a fantastic three-game stretch, but let’s not get carried away. Aw, shoot, let’s get carried away. "I'm the…

  15. Andre Iguodala avoids surgery, but can the Golden State Warriors stay healthy?

    Nov 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    This has been a brutal week in the NBA for injuries, but telling that to the Golden State Warriors is like preaching to the choir. The Warriors had already lost key rotation players in Toney Douglas and Jermaine O’Neal to minor injuries, and that’s in addition to being without backup centers Ogjen Kuzmi and Festus Ezeli.…

  16. Iguodala leaves game with hamstring injury, said he felt “pop”

    Nov 23, 2013, 3:00 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala has been a fantastic fit with Golden State, the glue that filled in needed spaces on both ends of the floor — a second shot creator, a guy who finished in transition, and the defensive presence on the perimeter they needed. Which is to say, they are going to miss him if he…

  17. It’s official, Kobe Bryant out Friday. Not that it’s a surprise.

    Nov 22, 2013, 3:26 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Don’t expect him to play Sunday, either. In a surprise to nobody after he sat out practice on Thursday due to soreness, Kobe Bryant is officially out Friday night when the Lakers take on the Golden State Warriors. Coach Mike D’Antoni said that at shootaround Friday, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. Stephen Curry also is…

  18. Another game, another Thunder fan hits $20,000 half court shot (this one got Jay-Z hand shake)

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:16 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder- Game One

    Do the fans in Oklahoma City just head to the gym and practice half-court shots? For the second straight game a Thunder fan hit a half-court shot to win $20,000. That is five made in the last 22 home games in OKC. Seriously, I’m not sure Stephen Curry hits that high a percentage from half…

  19. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  20. Warriors’ reserves embarrasses themselves, so Mark Jackson embarrasses them

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EST

    Mark Jackson

    With his team up 23 points and fewer than four minutes remaining against the Jazz on Monday, Warriors coach Mark Jackson pulled his top players in favor of Ognjen Kuzmic, Marreese Speights, Nemanja Nedovic, Kent Bazemore and Draymond Green (who was replaced by Dewayne Dedmon a few seconds later). Promptly, those five reserves ceded a…

  21. Memphis’ Tony Allen suspended one game for kick to Chris Paul’s face

    Nov 19, 2013, 5:20 PM EST

    Tony Allen

    Tony Allen said as much and I believe him — I don’t think he intentionally tried to kick Chris Paul in the face. I think he got badly burned leapt to cut off a pass that wasn’t coming, realized he was beat and tried to kick the ball to stop the play or foul Paul.…

  22. UPDATE: Stephen Curry diagnosed with concussion, out Wednesday for Warriors

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:50 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    UPDATE 4:50 PM: This really isn’t a surprise if you saw the play — Stephen Curry has been diagnosed with what the team called a “mild concussion” and he will not play Wednesday. I’m not a fan of the word “mild” when it comes to brain injuries (I have concerns about how the “warrior mentality”…

  23. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  24. Mark Jackson: Klay Thompson is a top-five shooting guard

    Nov 18, 2013, 11:50 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    Warriors coach Mark Jackson has never been shy about praising his players, once calling Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson the best shooting backcourt of all time. It’s also becoming increasingly popular to claim high rankings among shooting guards. Just by chance, that’s the weakest position in the NBA right now, so marginal players at the…

  25. Stephen Curry finds Klay Thompson with a behind-the-back pass in transition (VIDEO)

    Nov 17, 2013, 8:00 PM EST

    Stephen Curry, Isaiah Thomas

    This was one of those highlights that appeared to be flashier than necessary on the surface, until you take a closer look at the defender’s position. Stephen Curry found Klay Thompson with a smooth behind-the-back pass in transition during the Warriors’ win over the Jazz on Saturday, and for the play to be successful, he…
