CBSSports.com Basketball Podcast: When push comes to shove

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Today, Matt Moore is back with me to talk about the Celtics-Nets fight, new names for stuff, and Thursday night's action. We start off with the possible new nickname for the New Orleans Hornets. How would you feel about the New Orleans Pelicans? Would the Pellies or Pels inspire a sense of pride within the team construct? Or is the concept to freak people out with the evil creatures that are birds?

We move on to the Rajon Rondo-Kris Humphries pushing match in which we'll probably see suspensions being thrown about in the near future. Was the scuffle warranted or did Rondo overreact to an ordinary foul? Also, is Rondo sticking up for his teammate against a much bigger guy a huge deal?

We then preview tonight's matchups between the Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs and the Denver Nuggets vs. the Golden State Warriors.
