Young’s Late Three Helps Lakers Beat Spurs in OT

Young’s Late Three Helps Lakers Beat Spurs in OT

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO) -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young hit a monster three with 7.4 seconds remaining in overtime to help give the Lakers (7-16) a 112-110 win over San Antonio on Friday. Young finished with a game-high 29 points while Kobe Bryant added 22 points and nine rebounds.

"I'm so happy it ended up in my hands," Young said. "I wanted to shoot that bad, especially being on the floor watching Kobe and playing for the Lakers; nothing like those types of shots."

San Antonio (16-7) rallied from down 11 points in the fourth quarter to tie the game and send it into overtime, but Young's shot was too much to overcome. With the shot clock about to expire, and Manu Ginobili in his face, Young let go a 30-foot prayer that found the net for a 112-110 lead. The Spurs had a chance to tie but Ginobili's three-point attempt was off the mark and time expired before another they could get another shot off.

"The last 3, Manu was everything but inside his jersey, and he had to adjust his shot in the air and kind of shoot around Manu's hands, and it goes in," Duncan said. "If you put a team in a situation like that, things like that can happen. We put the blame on ourselves for the 48, 50 minutes before it gets to that point."

The Spurs also had a chance to win it in regulation, holding possession with less than two seconds remaining. However, Duncan missed a 17-foot, turn-around jumper that forced the extra session. Duncan finished with 19 points and 18 rebounds for San Antonio.

Bryant's 22 points leaves him eight shy of tying Michael Jordan for third on the NBA's all-time scoring list.

Knicks Snap Skid with Win Over Boston

Knicks Snap Skid with Win Over Boston

Steve Russell/Toronto Star via Getty Images(BOSTON, Mass.) -- The New York Knicks finally snapped a 10-game losing streak on Friday night, defeating the Boston Celtics 101-95 on the road. It was the first win for New York (5-20) since beating Philadelphia back on Nov. 22 at Madison Square Garden.

"It's always hard when you're climbing uphill, then you get that one game like today. It's kind of like relief," Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony said. "It gives you a chance to feel what winning a basketball game is like."

Anthony cause some headlines, before leading his team with 22 points, when rumors swirled that the forward would be willing to waive his no-trade clause if the right situation presented itself. The 30-year-old told reporters before the game that those were just rumors. Anthony shot 9-for-20 in the win, pulling down five rebounds and blocking three shots.

New York opened the game shooting well, holding a 26-19 lead after the first quarter, while their defense helped set the tone. The Knicks held Boston (7-14) to just 7-of-22 from three-point land and forced 17 total turnovers.

The win snapped the longest losing streak for the Knicks since 2005-06 when they also dropped 10 in a row.

Magic Johnson: ‘I Hope the Lakers Lose Every Game’

Magic Johnson: ‘I Hope the Lakers Lose Every Game’

Akpanudosen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Hall of Famer Magic Johnson thinks the Lakers should cash it in this season and hope for a high draft pick.

"I hope the Lakers lose every game," Johnson told reporters at a promotional event Tuesday in New York City. "Because if you're going to lose, lose. And I'm serious."

The Lakers are tied for the second worst record in the NBA and finished last year with a 27-55 record, which was the worst 82-game stretch in franchise history.

"I don't see teams tanking. It doesn't happen. Maybe there are certain teams in the league -- and this is not one of them -- where ownership sits up there in their office and they're crossing their fingers quietly and hoping," Lakers All-Star Kobe Bryant said. "But the players themselves? Never. Players play. Players play and players try to win every single game. That's just what we do."

Lakers head coach Byron Scott played with Johnson and wasn't looking too much into those comments.

"It's more of a laughing matter to me than anything," Scott said. "I know Ervin and how competitive he is and I understand where he's coming from -- 'Yeah, lose every game and hopefully you'll get the No. 1 pick.' That doesn't guarantee that you're going to get the No. 1 pick. You go out here and try to win as much as you can to try to create that culture of winning again instead of having that loser's mentality. That's how I look at it."

LeBron Leads Cleveland to Sixth Straight Win

LeBron Leads Cleveland to Sixth Straight Win

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(TORONTO) -- LeBron James had 24 points and a season-high 13 assists as the Cleveland Cavaliers dominated Eastern Conference-leading Toronto 105-91 on Friday. It was the sixth straight win for the Cavaliers (11-7), who avenged an earlier home loss to the Raptors (15-5).

"I feel really good with where I am but I feel even greater as far as where our team is right now," said James. 

The Cavaliers held Toronto to 40.7 percent shooting (35-of-86) while picking up seven steals in the win. Cleveland also out-rebounded the Raptors 48 to 40 as Kevin Love controlled the glass with a game-high 13 boards. The Cavs led 30-21 despite 12 points from Amir Johnson, who finished with a game-high 27 points for Toronto.

Cleveland eventually held a 51-44 advantage at the break but the Raptors took their first lead on Kyle Lowrie's three-pointer with 7:14 to play in the third, a 58-57 edge. The Cavaliers quickly regained control, going on a 16-2 run and never looked back. It was the third loss in five games for Toronto.

Nuggets Forward Kenneth Faried Critical of His Play This Season

Nuggets Forward Kenneth Faried Critical of His Play This Season

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Even though the Denver Nuggets are rebounding from a tough start to the season, forward Kenneth Faried has been disappointed by his own play so far.

During the offseason, Faried signed a four-year extension with the team worth $50 million. So far, according to himself, he hasn't lived up to his new deal.

“Awful…I just haven’t been playing my game,” Faried told the Denver Post. “I know it. My teammates know it. My coaches know it. Hopefully, this month of December, I turn everything around. But for me, it’s awful."

"You’ve got to be able to look at yourself, look at the man in the mirror and say that to yourself. And be able to correct yourself,” he continued.

Through 17 games, the 25-year-old Faried is averaging 11.4 rebounds and 7.0 rebounds per game. Last season, he averaged 13.7 points and 8.6 rebounds per game.

At 9-8, the Nuggets are fifth in the NBA in scoring at 105.4 points per game but are 26th in points allowed at 105.2 per game.

Wizards Soar Past Heat, 107-86

Wizards Soar Past Heat, 107-86

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- The Washington Wizards hit 10 3-pointers and shot 54.2 percent (39-of-72) to beat the Miami Heat 107-86 on Monday night. The Wizards (11-5) led by 15 points at halftime, 64-49, and held Miami (9-8) to 0-of-12 shooting from distance in the second half.

"We did a good job of staying home and getting a hand in their face," Washington head coach Randy Wittman said. "They missed some, too. It wasn't all us. They had some pretty good looks they missed."

John Wall had 18 points and 13 assists in the win while Rasual Butler paced the team with 23 points. The Wizards never trailed in the game, leading by as many as 25, and saw four players score in double figures. 

Meanwhile, Miami got 21 points from Chris Bosh and 20 from Dwayne Wade. The Heat's shooting woes only escalated at the charity stripe as the team was just 18-for-30 (60 percent) on free-throw attempts.

"I don't think we've gotten to the defense we've wanted all year," said Wade, who was playing in his second game back following a hamstring injury. "We're still fairly new; a lot of the guys are still confused at what we're trying to do."

Raptors Guad DeMar DeRozan Out Indefinitely with a Torn Adductor Longus

Ronald Matinez/Getty Images(TORONTO) -- The Eastern Conference's best team will be without one of their best players for the foreseeable future as guard DeMar DeRozan will be out indefinitely with a torn tendon in his left groin.

At 13-3, the Raptors hold the best record in the Eastern Conference, with DeRozan being the team's leading scorer.

Now in his sixth NBA season, all with the Raptors, the 25-year-old DeRozan is averaging 19.4 points on the season.

While there is no exact timetable for his return, according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders, the injury could keep him out of action up to 12 weeks if it is determined he needs surgery.

DeRozan has missed just 11 games over five seasons before this injury, so now the Raptors must spread their offense around even more than they already do with Kyle Lowry, Terrence Ross, and Jonas Valanciunas.

Mark Cuban Suggests Realignment in the NBA

Mark Cuban Suggests Realignment in the NBA

MichaEL Buckner/Getty Images for Reality Rocks(NEW YORK) -- The Western Conference has eight of the top-10 teams in the NBA record-wise, and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thinks the league would benefit from realignment.

If Cuban had his way, the San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets, and New Orleans Pelicans would move over to the Eastern Conference while the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, and Milwaukee Bucks would shift over to the Western Conference.

"It's not like you're reducing competition," said Cuban. "You keep Cleveland, Washington and other good teams in the East. It kind of shakes things up in terms of not just interest but also in terms of how people rebuild.

"It just changes things up and it changes the thought process of a lot of teams. It makes both conferences very competitive, at least for the short term and I think, based on the history of the teams, for the long term as well."

Cuban has not discussed his idea with commissioner Adam Silver.

Hornets’ Coach Steve Clifford Frustrated with Guard Lance Stephenson

Hornets’ Coach Steve Clifford Frustrated with Guard Lance Stephenson

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- Charlotte Hornets guard Lance Stephenson has yet to live up to expectations after the team made him their big free agent acquisition over the summer, and his head coach Steve Clifford has admitted as much.

The Hornets signed Stephenson away from the Indiana Pacers after agreeing on a three-year deal worth $27 million. They thought they'd be getting a dynamic guard coming into his prime.

"To be fair, one of the things that's made it more difficult for him is that he came here and people proclaimed him as the next superstar," Clifford said Wednesday. "He's not a star. He's a guy that has talent to become a star. To be a star in this league, you have to do it over years."

So far this season, Stephenson is averaging 9.7 points on .368% shooting, 8.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game.

Clifford decided to sit Stephenson the entire fourth quarter during the team's loss to Portland Trail Blazers for the second consecutive game.

Curry Drops 40 on Heat

Curry Drops 40 on Heat

NBA via Golden State Warriors(MIAMI, Fl.) -- Stephen Curry lit up the Miami Heat Tuesday night as he led the Golden State Warriors to a 114-97 victory.

Curry finished the night shooting 12 of 19 from the floor, draining eight 3-pointers. 

There had been some concern in the past couple days with Curry's shooting as he was 8 of 24 in his previous two games. Curry steadied those worries by finding open looks with the help of his teammates. 

"Everything feels in rhythm," Curry said. "My bigs, Draymon Green, Mo Speights, Andrew Bogut set some great screens for me and I got a lot of space. When you see your first two or three go down, your confidence is at a high. Shots just appear and you have confidence to knock them down."

Heat forward Chris Bosh was utterly perplexed by the end result.  With 6:45 left in the fourth, his team was leading by two.

"We got to the end, we're in the bonus, you know 93-95 and we don't score anymore," Bosh said. "We just forget our offense and I don't know why."

The Warriors have now won six straight and are 11-2 on the season.

Cavs Snap Skid with Win over Orlando

Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- LeBron James scored 29 points -- 16 in the first quarter -- as the Cleveland Cavaliers snapped a four-game losing streak by beating the Orlando Magic 106-74 on Monday night.

Prior to the game, James called himself out by telling reporters "I stink" and taking responsibility for the team's lackluster performance.

"I'm my biggest critic," James said. "I wasn't happy with my play the last week. No one puts any more pressure on me than myself. You go out and you just don't talk about it, you show it too."

The veteran took his own advice and came out strong, scoring as many points in the first quarter as the Magic (6-10) did. James finished the day by shooting 9-for-17 and pushing the lead to the point where he did not play in the fourth quarter. As a team, Cleveland (6-7) controlled the game defensively with 14 steals and nine blocks, forcing 21 turnovers.

"He's a great player and that's what great players do," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said of James. "They lead their team and make plays at both ends of the floor." 

Orlando struggled offensively as well, shooting 36.3 percent (29-of-80) from the floor. The Magic, who had won consecutive road games, were playing without leading rebounder and scorer Tobias Harris for the second straight night. Victor Oladipo picked up the scoring, racking up 22 points in the loss.

Louis Williams Drops 36 in Beat-down of Cavaliers

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(CLEVELAND,Oh.) -- The Toronto Raptors smacked down the Cleveland Cavaliers as Louis Williams came in off the bench and paced the Raptors to a 110-93 victory, Saturday.

Williams put up 36 points, completing 9 of 19 from the field including three from beyond the arc.

"The thing was that [my teammates] saw that I had a hot hand and they kept coming to me," Williams said. "Just created a spark off the bench."

No shot had as much impact as the three he drained at the first half buzzer that gave Toronto a 56-54 lead.

From there it was all downhill for the Cavaliers according to LeBron James.

"[Williams] changed the game, when he came into the game," James said. "We lost the tempo that we had."

The Cavaliers began the season as the favorites to win it all. Hyped up as the new Big 3; which includes, James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers currently sit at 5-7. 

"We're a very fragile team right now, we were a fragile team from the beginning," James said. "Any little adversity hits us, we just shell up."

Bulls Forward Taj Gibson Suffers Sprained Ankle

NBA via Chicago Bulls(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- The Chicago Bulls have to deal with another injured player as power forward Taj Gibson is out with a sprained ankle.

Midway through the third quarter of the team's game against the Portland Trail Blazers, and have to be carried off the floor by a pair of teammates.

X-rays wound up coming back negative, which is good news considering Gibson has dealt with issues in that same ankle in the past.

"It's the same lingering injury," Gibson said. "Just keep trying to play through it, trying to be there for my teammates. Just push through. All summer I was trying to rehab the same ankle and it just keeps flaring up. I keep having these little bum ankle turns. And I just took some time off from it and tried to rush back and this thing happened again. I'm just frustrated."

The 29-year-old Gibson is a key reserve for the Bulls. In 12 games this season, he's averaging 12.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.

Charlotte’s Jeff Taylor Suspended 24 Games

Charlotte’s Jeff Taylor Suspended 24 Games

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) -- The NBA announced Wednesday that Charlotte Hornets forward Jeff Taylor would be suspended for 24 games without pay after pleading guilty to misdemeanor physical assault and malicious destruction of hotel property last month.

The 25-year-old will be credited the first 11 games of the season, which he sat out, and be forced to miss the next 13 as well. In total, the suspension will cost Taylor $119,689 of his $915,000 salary. As of Wednesday night, both Taylor and his officials were working with union officials to go over their options.

"This suspension is necessary to protect the interests of the NBA and the public's confidence in it," NBA commissioner Adam Silver said in a press release. "Mr. Taylor's conduct violates applicable law and, in my opinion, does not conform to standards of morality and is prejudicial and detrimental to the NBA."

Taylor was arrested on Sept. 25 at a hotel in East Lansing, Mich. after an altercation with a woman with whom he was reportedly having a romantic relationship. An NBA release stated that the two had been drinking heavily when an argument ensued, resulting in Taylor shoving the woman into the hallway, where she fell and struck her head. The statement also noted that Taylor punched a hole in the wall near his room.

Taylor was sentenced to 18 months of probation after pleading guilty in October. He also must complete 26 weeks of a domestic violence intervention program.

Lakers Win Consecutive Games for First Time This Year

Lakers Win Consecutive Games for First Time This Year

Chris Graythen/Getty Images(HOUSTON) -- For the first time in the 2014-15 season, the Los Angeles Lakers won consecutive games with a 98-92 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night. Kobe Bryant led the way with 29 points, seven assists, and five rebounds for the Lakers (3-9).

"Look, we had a bad start," Bryant said. "Are we a 3-9 team? No. We're a much better team than that. We got off to a really bad start, but we'll (get better)."

Trailing by four with less than a minute to play, Los Angeles used a 7-1 run to take a 94-92 lead and pick up the victory. Nick Young scored 16 points in just his second game of the season, scoring 17 in Tuesday night's win. Young added a pair of free throws late to seal the win.

The Rockets (9-3) were playing without center Dwight Howard who missed the game with a knee injury. James Harden paced Houston with 24 points while three other players scored in double figures. Despite shooting 15-of-38 from beyond the arc, the Rockets turned the ball over 17 times and were out-rebounded 47-38 in the loss.

It was the first meeting between the Western Conference foes after Houston's opening night win in Los Angeles. That contest featured a small spat between Howard and Bryant, heightening the drama going into Wednesday's game.

Bucks Outlast Brooklyn in Triple Overtime

Bucks Outlast Brooklyn in Triple Overtime

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- In his first trip back to the Barclays Center since leaving the team, Jason Kidd and the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Brooklyn Nets 122-118 in triple overtime on Wednesday. The Bucks (7-5) trailed by eight at halftime but rallied to force extra play.

In the first overtime, Milwaukee actually had a chance to win the game. With the game tied at 105, Brandon Knight picked off a pass from Joe Johnson with 2.9 seconds remaining. Knight then sprinted the length of the court and missed a wide-open layup to send the game into the second overtime.

However, that memory did not stay with Knight long. The guard would end up hitting a game-tying three late in the second overtime, and the game-clinching free throws in the third. Knight finished with 18 points and eight assists in the win. 

"My teammates trusted me to make the next shot to force a third overtime, so that's really what it's all about," Knight said, "and we stuck through it as a team."

The Nets (4-7), who lost their fifth straight, were led by a season-high 26 points from Brook Lopez.
