  1. Report: Dwight Howard to talk to other teams besides Lakers this summer

    Apr 28, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Three

    The Lakers knew this when they traded for Dwight Howard last summer — under the terms of the new CBA it makes financial sense for a max player to play out his current deal and become a free agent then re-sign with the same team than it does to sign an extension to a deal…

  2. Metta World Peace says he likely sits out Game 4 because of knee. Sure he does.

    Apr 27, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    At this point, what’s another injured Laker having to sit out? Metta World Peace tried to give it a go Friday night against San Antonio — he’d had fluid removed from his knee less than 24 hours before but tried to get out on the court. He was moving stiffly and shot 0-6 in the…

  3. Spurs take care of business against injured Lakers, lead series 3-0

    Apr 27, 2013, 2:32 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Dwight Howard

    LOS ANGELES — This is what good teams do. They take care of business. With injuries forcing the Lakers into lineups without any guards you can name — unless you’re a big D-League fan — the Spurs looked every bit the contender, racing out to an early double-digit lead, never letting up and cruising to…

  4. No Nash for Lakers; Goudelock, Morris to start, try and be unlikely heroes

    Apr 26, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    SPO-BKN-NBA--WIZARDS-LAKERS

    LOS ANGELES — The virtual worst-case scenario has become the Lakers reality. No Kobe Bryant No Steve Nash (two epidurals, one cortisone shot). No Steve Blake. No Jodie Meeks. Mike D’Antoni made it official pregame: Your Lakers starting backcourt is Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris. They will bring Chris Duhon off the bench. By the…

  5. More Lakers injury fun: World Peace has knee drained, will play Game 3

    Apr 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    World Peace knee

    Lakers trainer Gary Vitti is going to need more than a room off the side of the locker room, he needs his own wing. To add to the injuries expected to keep the top four Lakers out of a crucial Game 3 Friday night, Metta World Peace had his knee drained on Thursday. Teams try…

  6. Are Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson ‘the greatest shooting backcourt in the history of the game,’ as Mark Jackson says?

    Apr 25, 2013, 4:44 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson

    Warriors point guard Stephen Curry just completed the best 3-point shooting season of all time (3.6 3-pointers made per game, 45.3 3-point percentage), and Golden State shooting guard Klay Thompson had a pretty good year outside the arc, too (2.6, 40.1). Mark Jackson even called them “the greatest shooting backcourt in the history of the…

  7. Lakers’ Blake out indefinitely; Nash, Meeks doubtful for Game 3

    Apr 25, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    It looks like the Lakers will head into Game 3 against the Spurs Friday night without their top four guards. Steve Blake is out indefinitely with a right hamstring injury suffered in the fourth quarter of the Lakers latest loss on Wednesday night, the team announced Thursday afternoon. The injury was checked out by ultrasound…

  8. Your Lakers injury update. You’re going to need time to get through all of it.

    Apr 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    I strained a hamstring just watching the Lakers lose to the Spurs Wednesday night. Like Odysseus just trying to get home, the basketball gods are not done throwing obstacles in the Lakers way. And obstacles in this case are more injuries. So here is a rundown of the Lakers injuries as of postgame Wednesday night.…

  9. Spurs have little trouble with Lakers on the way to 2-0 series lead

    Apr 25, 2013, 1:35 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The necessary adjustments the Lakers needed to make in order to have a shot in Game 2 against the Spurs were only going to work if they were able to turn in a similar defensive performance that held the Spurs to 37.6 percent shooting in Game 1 of the series. Since San Antonio used a…

  10. The Extra Pass: Lakers and Warriors forced to juggle lineups, Knicks do so by choice

    Apr 24, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Warriors’ starters last night – Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut, Stephen Curry, Jarrett Jack and Klay Thompson – played one minute together during the regular season. The Lakers’ Game 1 starters – Steve Blake, Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash and Metta World Peace – had never before shared the court. Such is life without…

  11. Steve Nash: ‘I’m not myself’

    Apr 21, 2013, 10:51 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash – who left his last two games, March 28 and March 30, with injuries – shot just 6-of-15 and had only three assists in the Lakers’ Game 1 loss to the Spurs today. He was a big reason the Lakers posted a dismal offensive rating of 82.7, which was slightly lower when Nash…

  12. Stifling defensive effort leads Spurs to Game 1 win over Lakers

    Apr 21, 2013, 7:09 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tiago Splitter, Tony Parker, Danny Green, Steve Blake

    The Lakers put up a fight in Game 1 of their playoff series in San Antonio on Sunday, and hung within striking distance for most of the game. But thanks to a suffocating defensive effort from the Spurs, L.A. couldn’t score with enough frequency or enough volume the entire afternoon, and sparked offensively by Manu…

  13. Seven players whose teams need them to step up big in the postseason

    Apr 20, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Jeff Green Since his 43-point game in mid-March (excluding Boston’s season finale, when regular players rested), Green has averaged 20.0, 5.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. By any eye test, he’s looked excellent. But in that span, the Celtics have been outscored by 3.6 points per 100 possession with him on the court and…

  14. Steve Nash hopes to return to Lakers lineup for Sunday’s playoff opener

    Apr 20, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    Steve Nash has missed the Lakers’ last eight games due to a combination of a hip and hamstring injury, but said after practicing fully on Friday for the first time in weeks that he hopes to be able to go in Game 1 of his team’s first round playoff matchup against the Spurs on Sunday.…

  15. PBT NBA Playoff Preview: Los Angeles Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs

    Dwight Howard, Tim Duncan

    SEASON RECORDS San Antonio: 58-24, two seed in the West L.A.

  16. Seven NBA playoff story lines to watch

    Apr 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    After weeks of trying to predict seedings and matchups while watching teams rest their perfectly healthy superstars, the playoffs are finally upon us. In no particular order, here are the story lines we’ll be watching when the postseason tournament opens on Saturday. How much damage can the Lakers do without Kobe Bryant? L.A. opened the…

  17. Marcin Gortat says lack of character in younger players a big problem for the Suns

    Apr 18, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    PHOENIX — Marcin Gortat was among the veteran Suns players who weren’t at all happy with the way this season went in Phoenix. Along with Goran Dragic and Jared Dudley, Gortat is a holdover from better times the team experienced while playing with the likes of Steve Nash and Grant Hill, two of the game’s…

  18. Lakers GM Kupchak makes it clear: D’Antoni will be back next season

    Apr 18, 2013, 9:31 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni chats to Pau Gasol of Spain and Dwight Howard during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Bad news for those Lakers fans who have chosen to scapegoat coach Mike D’Antoni for the Lakers disappointing season: He’s going to be back next season. That’s not my opinion, that comes straight from Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, speaking to the Los Angeles Times. “Yeah, he’s back. I think he’s done a great job,” Kupchak…

  19. Suns players irritated by playing for Suns

    Apr 17, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Luis Scola, Dante Cunningham, Ricky Rubio

    The Suns have gone from a team trending downward with no direction featuring the awesome play of Steve Nash to a team trending downward with no direction. They haven’t had a winning season since Amar’e Stoudemire played for them, and their 25-56 record guarantees the second-worst mark in franchise history, behind only the 16-66 team…

  20. Steve Nash out for Lakers final game, hopes to be ready for playoffs

    Apr 16, 2013, 4:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    If the Lakers are going to make the playoffs, they are going to have to do it without Steve Nash. That shouldn’t be as surprise, Nash hasn’t set foot on a court since the calendar flipped to April due to a hamstring issue. But it was hoped, with Kobe Bryant out, he could come back.…

  21. Kobe will be back, but what do Lakers do this summer now?

    Apr 13, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant isn’t going to let his career end this way, limping off the court with a torn Achilles tendon. It is going to end on his terns. He would not allow it to be any other way. He will be back. An hour after he limped off the court he was telling the media…

  22. Metta World Peace to play, come off bench; Kobe’s minutes to be decreased

    Apr 9, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    Metta World Peace is a warrior. Or maybe not human. Because this is pretty insane. As we told you Monday, twelve days after surgery on his left knee to repair a torn meniscus World Peace will be back on the court for the Lakers Tuesday against New Orleans, Mike D’Antoni confirmed to reporters including Mike…

  23. Nash says Lakers’ season has been “coach’s nightmare.” Obviously.

    Apr 8, 2013, 6:17 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Steve Nash

    When Lakers’ fans are throwing around blame for the fact the team they thought would be a contender is struggling for the eight spot, pretty much everyone who does not have a first name of Kobe is a target. But one of the most fired at targets is coach Mike D’Antoni. D’Antoni’s biggest problem is…

  24. D’Antoni says Metta World Peace “80%, 90%” to play Tuesday

    Apr 8, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Metta World Peace had surgery two weeks ago to repair a torn meniscus in his knee and the doctors said at the time he would be out six weeks. Or, maybe two. Well, 18 days to be precise. On Monday World Peace went through some three on three drills and coach Mike D’Antoni said he…

  25. Clippers clinch first division title in team history with win over Lakers

    Apr 7, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Clippers forward Griffin grabs a rebound as Lakers forward Gasol defends during first half NBA game in Los Angeles

    Division titles don’t mean a whole lot in the NBA these days. But for a Clippers franchise that has been mired in mediocrity or worse for the better part of its existence, clinching the first Pacific Division championship in franchise history with a runaway 109-95 win over a Lakers team with more than any of…
