HOUSTON -- The newly constructed Houston Rockets showed Wednesday that they could deal with an unexpected reversal of fortunes. Two nights earlier, the Rockets erased a 17-point deficit, blew past the Heat, and then watched as LeBron James led Miami to victory late. On Wednesday night, the Rockets fashioned a seemingly insurmountable lead, only for the New Orleans Hornets to methodically chip away. After James Harden dragged his teammates to the shadow of the finish line with splendid scoring and playmaking, Chandler Parsons closed out the Rockets' 100-96 win at Toyota Center with key plays on both ends. With Houston clinging to a 98-96 lead, Parsons beat the shot clock to make a difficult step-back 20-footer with 65 seconds remaining. He added a critical defensive rebound on the Hornets' ensuing possession, and with New Orleans in desperate need of a 3-pointer, Parsons closed out on Al-Farouq Aminu to force a miss with 4.9 seconds left. The Rockets led 64-45 at half...

The Miami Heat have suffered a few shocking defeats thus far but they rebounded against the Denver Nuggets on Thursday to pull off a 98-93 victory.
The Heat became the first team in the Eastern Conference to win seven games and improved to 3-2 on a six-game road trip that ends Saturday in Phoenix.
LeBron James paced Miami with 27 points, eight rebounds and 12 assists.
These videos are the absolute best. Someone needs to tell fans who sit in the front row at NBA games that being so close to the court doesn’t entitle you to a handshake from the world’s top player. Just look at this guy all ready to give LeBron the “wassup homie” handshake/hug only to be ignored. How dare he think he was going to receive daps from King James. The only thing...
If LeBron James and his Miami Heat colleagues felt so inclined, they could author a book on the art of meshing superstar players and their personalities after all they went through leading up to the championship last June. The Los Angeles Lakers, as fate would have it, could use that sort of how-to guide right about now.
“It’s not easy, and it doesn’t happen overnight,” James...
Only three games went down last night in the NBA. The Brooklyn Nets showed they are the real deal with a victory over Boston. The Knicks moved to 6-0 with a victory over the Spurs and showed that they are coming for the title this year. Last and least the Miami Heat and LeBron showed that they are too Hollywood for regular fans. LeBron showed some love to running back Willis...
LeBron James was receiving ice and stimulation treatment on his bruised shoulder after Miami's win over the Nuggets.
This is just painful to watch, you have to feel bad for the guy. Trying to get a high five or a little dap from one of your idols and he completely ignores you because Broncos RB Willis McGahee had something cooler to show him on his iPhone.H/T: The Kevin Burke Project
Kennedy Meeks is one of the most skilled posts in the 2013 class. Here's a highlight reel of him at LeBron James Skills Academy.
After the Miami Heat's 98-93 victory over the Denver Nuggets, Heat star LeBron James decided to go say hi to Denver Broncos Willis McGahee.
One of the guys sitting next to Willis McGahee wanted to show some love to LeBron as well but got left hanging by King James:
Come on, Channing Tatum wasn’t about to make it that easy for LeBron James.
After LeBron won his first NBA championship — ridding himself of a dump truck full of demons in the process — and then went on to lead Team USA to a gold medal in the London Olympics, everyone figured he was having the best year a person could possibly have.
Buuuuuut in the midst of all of that, Channing...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Griffin and Chris Paul had double-doubles, with Paul keying a third-quarter spurt that helped carry the Los Angeles Clippers to a 107-100 win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.
Griffin had 20 points and 14 rebounds and Paul had 16 points and 10 assists to lead five players in double figures in the Clippers' fourth straight win. Jamal Crawford added...
When the Thunder traded James Harden shortly before the season, the small-market contender did more than clear salary cap space. In dealing the heady two-guard, the Thunder also signaled that they believed Kevin Durant was ready to expand his game and to fill some of the roles Harden formerly occupied.
Durant has come through so far this season, and then some. Not only has he assumed...

DENVER -- LeBron James had 27 points and 12 assists, Shane Battier scored 18 points, all on 3-pointers, and the Miami Heat overcame the absence of Dwyane Wade to beat the Denver Nuggets 98-93 on Thursday night.
