  1. Fear Blake Griffin. Fear. Him.

    Yes, the Clippers suck. Yes, they lost — again — to the New York Knicks Saturday night. But Blake Griffin is a beast. A physical force. A highlight reel. A reason to actually watch Clippers games. He had 44 points and 15 rebounds against the Knicks. We know you didn’t spend your Saturday night watching…

  2. Game of the night: Where even the Heat have to be asking “What happened?”

    Nov 21, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Memphis Grizzlies

    When I say this, please realize that I very badly simply want to credit the Grizzlies with a terrific win. I have no idea what just happened. The Grizzlies beat the Heat in front of what is likely their biggest or second biggest crowd of the season on a Rudy Gay buzzer-beater fadeway baseline jumpshot…

  3. Miami’s Udonis Haslem may have serious foot injury

    Udonis Haslem, who has been the heart of the Miami Heat’s defense and the one player who has brought unquestioned effort every night, may be out with a foot injury. He had to be helped off the court during the Heat’s eventual loss to the Memphis Grizzlies Saturday. The team said that the X-rays cane…

  4. Chris Bosh (or one of his people) is still confused about social media rules

    Nov 20, 2010, 11:05 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    During the second quarter of the Heat-Grizzlies game, a tweet was published from Chris Bosh’s account promoting a charity event with Pat Riley Sunday night in Miami. Unfortunately, players are prohibited from Tweeting during a game. Brian Windhorst noted the tweet and retweeted it, and subsequently Bosh deleted it. The odds of it actually being…

  5. Saturday Starting 5: Injury Damage

    Nov 20, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

  6. Tim Duncan is the All-Time Spur’s Points Leader

    Nov 20, 2010, 5:41 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Charlotte Bobcats

    There’s little doubt to anyone who the greatest San Antonio Spur of all time is. Most championships, most Finals appearances, most MVPs, most Finals MVPs, the list goes on an on. And now Tim Duncan can add two more franchise records to his list, most games played and most points scored as a Spur. Duncan…

  7. Steve Nash to sit out Saturday in Charlotte, may miss Monday also

    Nov 20, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Pelvic instability is no laughing matter. Sure, it kind of sounds like it should be, but it’s not. So stop snickering. It’s keeping Steve Nash out of his second consecutive game Saturday night in Charlotte, and he likely will miss Monday in Houston, also, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Officially, this is…

  8. Hornets-Raptors trade official, as weird as we thought

    Nov 20, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Orlando Magic

    Well it’s done, as every major outlet has confirmed the deal is done. The Toronto Raptors will send Jarrett Jack, Marcus Banks, and David Andersen to the Hornets for Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless from the Hornets. For some reason which is just escaping me at the moment, everyone’s saying the Hornets “won” this trade.…

  9. Steve Kerr could be back in the general manager’s chair with Warriors

    Nov 20, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    kerrsuns

    Steve Kerr’s reign as general manager in Phoenix receives a big fat “I” for “Incomplete.” He orchestrated one of the worst trades of the year in 2008 when he acquired Shaquille O’Neal for the run-and-gun Suns, and chose a horrific coach in Terry Porter. But after that, he acquired smart, high-energy guys who worked hard…

  10. What is the deal with the Celtics and superstar-less teams?

    Nov 20, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    There’s something bizarre with these Celtics. They have three losses, and two of them are to teams without or missing their superstar. First they lost to the Cavaliers, which is odd since they don’t have you-know-who anymore, after they beat you-know-who the night before. But it was a back-to-back so maybe it was just one…

  11. Phil Jackson said the Pistons aren’t playing hard, Ben Gordon basically says “Yeah, pretty much.”

    Nov 20, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    Phil Jackson discussed the Pistons this week after the Lakers waxed them with ease, saying that “some of those guys aren’t playing hard right now.” Nothing particularly groundbreaking, considering that the Pistons are a talented team who currently sucks. The interesting part is that Friday, Ben Gordon pretty much said “Yeah, that’s pretty much what…

  12. Report: Hornets and Raptors close to Peja trade

    Nov 20, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    A report popped up this morning on a Euro site via HoopsHype describing a trade between the New Orleans Hornets and Toronto Raptors. Now ESPN is reporting the same: The New Orleans Hornets are very close to trading Peja Stojakovic and Jerryd Bayless to the Toronto Raptors for Jarrett Jack, David Andersen, and Marcus Banks.…

  13. Lockout or no, Jennings and others won’t be headed back to Europe

    Nov 20, 2010, 9:31 AM EDT

    jenningseuro

    We informed you yesterday of Brandon Jennings making some noise about heading back to Europe in the event of a lockout (an event which at this point has the likelihood of the sun rising in the East tomorrow). Today comes word that Jennings can go ahead and flip his leftover Euros into dollars, because he’s…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: No Durant, no problem for OKC.

    Nov 20, 2010, 8:13 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook

    What you missed while playing ‪Manny Pacquiao’s Punchout‬… Thunder 89, Celtics 84: No Kevin Durant. No Jeff Green. The Thunder missed their last 15 shots from the field. And they still handed Boston its first loss of the season at home. Part of it, as it has been all season with Oklahoma City, is free…

  15. Poll: Was Kobe wrong to do the Call of Duty ad?

    Nov 19, 2010, 7:27 PM EDT

    101119-bryant-hmed-1130a.nbcsports-grid-8x2

    You’ve all seen it by now — and if you haven’t we can make it easy for you, it’s right here, we’re all about customer service — Kobe Bryant was one of the celebrities in the new ad for Call of Duty. Which sent some columnists off the deep end, thinking that Kobe crossed a…

  16. Joey Graham has found a solid spot in the rotation in Cleveland

    Nov 19, 2010, 7:01 PM EDT

    Joey Graham

    Sometimes you just have to keep plugging away to find your niche. Joey Graham has played four years in Toronto, one in Denver, but never really found a spot that worked for him in the NBA. He’s never averaged more than 20 minutes a game, often struggled for consistent playing time. He didn’t seem to…

  17. Kevin Durant to sit out against Celtics Friday

    Nov 19, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    Image (1) durant.jpg for post 425

    UPDATE #2 6:24 pm: It is official, Durant is going to sit out the Celtics/Thunder Friday night matchup due to a sprained ankle suffered Wednesday night against the Rockets. An MRI showed no structural damage, but it’s too much to play through. The Oklahoman had a quote from the man. “After the game, I think…

  18. Wade has the flu, may or may not play against Bobcats

    Wade_Timberlake

    According to the twitter account of our own Ira Winderman, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade is sick with the flu, and coach Erik Spolestra is “unsure” whether or not he’ll play against the Charlotte Bobcats tonight. In other Heat news, forward Juwan Howard will be receiving a mask for his broken nose and has been…

  19. Could the Blazers get a disabled player exception for Greg Oden?

    Nov 19, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    The news Greg Oden’s latest microfracture surgery was a crushing blow to both the Blazers franchise and its fans, but there may be the smallest of silver linings on the horizon. Over on BlazersEdge, cap guru “storyteller” outlined how the Blazers may be eligible for a Disabled Player Exception because of Oden, and what they…

  20. Jennings: I’d probably go overseas if there was a lockout

    Nov 19, 2010, 4:57 PM EDT

    Jennings Italy

    Brandon Jennings gained a lot of attention by becoming one of the first American draft prospects to eschew college and play professional basketball in Europe before becoming draft-eligible. After a miserable start, Jennings had some limited success, but he was nowhere near as good as he would be in the NBA the following year. In…
