  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Spurs remain kings of end game execution

    Feb 24, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    gary neal

    Carmelo Anthony’s debut as a Knick was our game of the night. Spurs 109, Thunder 105: Fantastic effort by the Thunder on the second night of a back-to-back on the road, but it’s the little things in these games. Like Gary Neal stepping back to take a three in transition that was a bad decision…

  2. Video: Avery Johnson, Billy King talk getting Deron Williams

    Feb 24, 2011, 9:04 AM EDT

    Mavericks Johnson Fired  Basketball

    Nets coach Avery Johnson is excited. It’s a little tough to tell because he actually always talks like that, but he is. He should be, as should GM Billy King. They now have one of the games elite point guards in an increasingly guard-driven league. They have a cornerstone to start building around. But rather…

  3. Clippers trade Baron Davis to Cavaliers for Mo Williams

    Feb 24, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    This is why they are the Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s about compounding mistakes. The Clippers and Cavaliers have agreed to a trade that sends point guard Baron Davis and a 2011 first-round pick to the Cavaliers for Mo Williams and Jamario Moon, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo. This is a huge win for the Clippers.…

  4. The day the Jazz died

    Feb 24, 2011, 2:16 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Houston Rockets, Game 7

    It wasn’t supposed to end this way. Just yesterday, it seemed there were only two possible outcomes to Deron Williams’ future. Either he would do what LeBron James and Chris Bosh wouldn’t and re-sign with the only team he’s ever known. Or, amid season-long speculation, Williams would fail to assure its residents of his desire…

  5. ‘Melo does what ‘Melo does, but old guy Toney Douglas saves Knicks

    Feb 24, 2011, 1:48 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    Knicks fans, this is what you’re going to get from Carmelo Anthony. He had 27 points and one assist. He shot 10 of 25 on the night and you’re saying, “He had a poor shooting night.” Not really, he had a pretty average shooting night for himself — he is shooting 45.2 percent from the…

  6. Celtics Kendrick Perkins to miss next three games at least

    Kendrick Perkins finally returned to the Celtics a dozen games ago, returning from his finals knee injury to anchor on the backline of the Celtics defense. Now he is out again for at least three more games. Perkins strained his MCL Tuesday night in the Celtics win over Golden State and will sit out the…

  7. Gerald Wallace to Portland has cooled off, may be dead

    Feb 23, 2011, 8:42 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    UPDATE 8:42 pm: According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo and other reports this trade has at the very least “cooled down” and may be dead. Woj suggests that, as he has done on other deals that reached the point of just needing a final approval, Bobcats owner Michael Jordan may have gotten cold feet. The…

  8. Hawks trade for Kirk Hinrich

    Feb 23, 2011, 7:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Multiple sources are reporting that the Atlanta Hawks have agreed to trade Mike Bibby, Mo Evans, rookie Jordan Crawford, and a #1 pick to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. This deal fills an obvious need for the Hawks. Mike Bibby is still a sharpshooter, but he has contributed in…

  9. Mike Dunleavy’s broken thumb likely kills any trade hopes

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    DUNLEAVY_MIKE

    Well, that was some unfortunate timing. Not that there is a good time to break your thumb, as the Indiana Pacers’ Mike Dunleavy did Tuesday night in a win over the Washington Wizards. The injury will have him out indefinitely, the team announced. Dunleavy was one of the key trade chips for the Pacers, as…

  10. What to Watch: Melo Debuts for the Knicks

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    After many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many months, Carmelo Anthony has finally been traded to the New York Knicks. He’ll debut tonight beside Amar’e Stoudemire against the Bucks in front of a sold-out crowd which will be buzzing like arguably never before.  But what exactly should we be watching for, exactly? Here are…

  11. Carmelo is in New York! (And Dolan wants you to know Isiah is not)

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:36 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    New York is buzzing over Carmelo Anthony. Like first date with Minka Kelly kind of buzzing. They are over-the-top giddy and can’t believe they landed this. Anthony himself is trying to play it cool while still getting the lay of the land in what can be the unpredictable world of the New York Knicks. Like…

  12. Jerry Sloan says no, he is not coming out of retirement

    Feb 23, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_sloan.jpg for post 1640

    You can almost picture Jerry Sloan taking this call from a reporter and in the middle of it yelling “you kids get off my lawn.” The old school coach who walked away two weeks ago told Chris Tomasson of FanHouse he is not returning to the Utah Jazz now that Deron Williams has been traded…

  13. Chauncey Billups reminds us of the human side of trades

    Feb 23, 2011, 4:47 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    When an NBA trade gets made, we start breaking it down on the court. Did the Nets get better? What do the Jazz do next? Same with the Nuggets and the Knicks and everyone else. But while we break down if Chauncey Billups is a good fit in the Knicks offense, Billups has to go…

  14. Video: Dwyane Wade can hit literally any shot

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade, basketball magician. As proof, we submit this video from last night’s Heat destruction of the Kings. Falling, flip it up and it falls. Pretty much, that’s how the entire night went for the Heat — whatever they did worked and the Kings stood around looking dumbfounded.

  15. Chris Paul is no fan of the Deron Williams trade

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    There was a lot of shock going around the league when news broke that the Jazz had traded Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets. Fans, media and players were shocked — and that includes Deron Williams himself. Chris Paul was no fan of the deal, he wrote this on twitter: Utah traded DWill?? #EpicFail…

  16. League to blast horn to speed up games

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    The NBA wants to speed up its games a little, and since it can’t get Amir Johnson and DeMarcus Cousins to stop fouling so much it has come up with another plan. The league’s scoreboard operators have been instructed to blast the in arena horn just before the end of timeouts and breaks in periods…

  17. Nuggets GM on Carmelo Anthony deal: “We got killed”

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    Denver is not Cleveland. They got something back for their superstar. But Denver was not a winner either in having to trade away Carmelo Anthony, and their GM Masai Ujiri said as much, as the fantastic Chris Tomasson reported at Fanhouse. “We feel we got killed in the trade because we lost a couple of…

  18. Knicks may not think it’s a rivalry, but Nets do and they won round one

    Feb 23, 2011, 12:29 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    Mention a Knicks/Nets rivalry to a Knicks fan and they laugh a dismissive little laugh. There is no rivalry — the Knicks play in Manhattan and the Nets are still in Newark, the swamps of Jersey. Even when they come to Brooklyn, that’s not on the island. The  Knicks dismiss the rivalry out of hand.…

  19. Utah’s Deron Williams traded to Nets in surprising deal

    Feb 23, 2011, 11:12 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    In a move that has flown under the radar like a stealth bomber about to unload its payload on an unsuspecting NBA, the New Jersey Nets have acquired Deron Williams from the Utah Jazz. This is a deal that would send D-Will — one of the game’s best point guards — to the Nets. Derrick…

  20. PBT Wednesday morning one liners (with some trade rumors)

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    Cavaliers Lakers Basketball

    If you have picks to trade, the Cleveland Cavaliers roster is open to you. Yes, Boston is looking for another player. Doc says so. The Trail Blazers are checking out the market for Andre Miller and Marcus Camby. Camby has no desire to be traded. The Hawks really want Washington’s Kirk Hinrich to be their…
