PBT Podcast: Warriors, Clippers, Bulls, Lakers, and some Heat talk with Ira Winderman

Mar 1, 2013, 1:40 PM EST

In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I discuss the amazing 54-point performance put in by Stephen Curry during a loss to the Knicks earlier this week.

We look at the Warriors playoff prospects, before looking back at last night’s games, the best of which didn’t make TNT’s nationally televised schedule.

Chris Paul made sure the Clippers beat the Pacers, and we discuss his value to the franchise, as well as what the Clippers might have in store in the playoffs. We look back at Joakim Noah‘s historic night, and touch on the Bulls’ postseason prospects — with or without Derrick Rose.

The Lakers cruised to a win over the Timberwolves, which in and of itself is worth noting because there hasn’t been much that has come easy in Los Angeles this season. We look at the Lakers odds at making the playoffs, now that they’ve pulled within two games of the eighth and final playoff spot out West.

All that, plus a conversation with Ira Winderman, who covers the Miami Heat for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, as well as contributes here at NBC Sports.
