Byron Scott may be sick of the way his team defends, but he doesn’t have other cards to play.

There are parallels, but there are a lot of differences, too.

Mayweather thought it was funny.

Wesley Johnson is at his best in transition.

Magic Johnson will appreciate that

A second unit of Jeremy Lin, Nick Young and Julius Randle will be a lot of fun. It won’t defend, but it will be entertaining.

Stone also has interest from Cavaliers, Clippers, Heat, Kings and Spurs

Someday his story could make a good cheesy Disney sports movie.

If not an outright win for Saunders, this proposed trade is as close to it as he would get.

By the way, Lakers and Xavier Henry both want him to stay in Los Angeles next season

It’s factually and subjectively wrong.

BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

Portland had battled back from 14 down to take a one-point lead and it looked like they would hand the Lakers another painful loss. The Lakers hadn’t scored a field goal in the final six minutes and looked defeated. Then this happened. It’s a play the Lakers have run before (against Detroit): Jordan Farmar fakes…

This game played out pretty much exactly as expected. Dwight Howard made his return to Staples Center and was lustily booed by Lakers fans. Then the game tipped off and the Rockets went out of their way to feed Howard in the post — he scored the Rockets first six points and had eight points,…

Jimmer Fredette – the bright lights of Madison Square Garden shining on him – walked the ball up court and called out a play. Of course, Fredette has never been big on plays. His freelancing, gunning style endeared him to fans at Brigham Young, where he carried the program to unprecedented heights. Fredette noticed his…

There were plenty of moments in his return where Steve Nash looked rusty, but there were moments where he looked like the Steve Nash we remember as well. For an example of the latter, check out the half-court alley-oop pass to Wesley Johnson from Nash. Nash had nine assists but it wasn’t enough to lift…

The Lakers don’t have much in the way of talent these days, and looking at a starting lineup that includes Ryan Kelly, Kendall Marshall and Wesley Johnson may feel like a strong sign that the basketball equivalent of the apocalypse has descended on Los Angeles. But what the team does have is an above average…

The Lakers have had more than their fair share of injury issues for the second straight season, but they’ll be getting a little bit of help back in the lineup just in time for Christmas. Jordan Farmar has missed the last 10 games with a torn hamstring, one of three L.A. point guards (along with…

LOS ANGELES — Kobe Bryant is back — he was walking around the Lakers’ locker room pregame in uniform ready to go — and he is going to try to score. It’s what he does. But don’t be surprised if on his return Sunday night against Toronto you see a lot of the dishing, facilitating…

We know you missed some NBA action Monday night between watching the Seahawks win and catching Ron Burgundy anchor an actual newscast. So to help you out, here are our NBA grades for Monday. Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs. Slump? What slump? With his 23 points and 21 rebounds Duncan became the oldest player in…

The Lakers injury woes just continue (for a second consecutive season). Jordan Farmar, who has played well as a reserve point guard for the Lakers this season sparking a bench unit that has been key to their 9-9 record, will be out for a month with a torn left hamstring, the team announced Monday. Farmar…

Kobe Bryant is injured and Earl Clark is gone in free agency, but the play those two ran in Detroit to end the first half against the Pistons a season ago was alive and well on Friday. The play above shows Steve Blake inbounding the ball from just inside the halfcourt line on the sideline,…
