John Wall came in fourth place behind champion Tony Parker, Rajon Rondo and Deron Williams in the Skills Challenge on All-Star Saturday in Orlando, improving upon his fifth-place last season.

Rajon Rondo will have more responsibility representing the Boston Celtics this All-Star weekend as he has been chosen to fill in for Stephen Curry in the Taco Bell NBA Skills Challenge. Curry, the defending champion, is out with a strained tendon in his right foot.

Not even the All-Star Game's lack of defensive intensity could shake Pierce from his season-long shooting slump. He missed seven of the eight shots he put up, connecting on a first-half 3-pointer for his...
The two big rumors in the NBA this weekend were Rajon Rondo to the Lakers for Pau Gasol and an imminent Dwight Howard to the Lakers trade, which was denied by the Magic. Dwight Howard is the Lakers main target. So far they have offered Bynum to the Magic for him, which the Magic turned down. The Magic want both Bynum and Gasol for Howard and Hedo's poison pill contract, which...
