  1. With suspension over, Mayo has to adjust to improved Grizzlies

    Feb 14, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    Tuesday night, O.J. Mayo is back. The man has served his debt to the NBA, a 10 game suspension for testing positive for banned substance dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is over. He says he got it in his system by drinking an energy drink he bought at a convenience store. You can chose to believe that or…

  2. Lenny Kravitz: “Come on Get it” the All-Star trailer

    Feb 14, 2011, 11:22 AM EDT

    Lenny Kravitz was in Los Angeles for the Grammys Sunday night, taking on the vital role of introducing Muse. Then going to the parties. But he’s hanging out for a week in the City of Angels because he will be performing at the NBA All-Star Game Sunday, performing his hit “Come and Get It.” Which…

  3. Rick Adelman thinking about retirement as the guard seems to be changing

    Feb 14, 2011, 10:29 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Jerry Sloan walked away. At the end of the Lakers season, Phil Jackson is headed to Montana and his ranch. Larry Brown is without a job. Then there is Rick Adelman, who was drafted into the NBA in 1968 to play for the then San Diego Rockets. It’s now 43 years later and Adelman is…

  4. PBT Monday morning one liners

    Feb 14, 2011, 10:05 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    Remember, Chris Bosh returns to Toronto on Wednesday night. Adrian Smith was the MVP of the 1966 All-Star Game and got a Ford Galaxie convertible as the prize — which he still owns and drives. In case you didn’t notice, Derrick Rose played good defense on Chris Paul Sunday. Take that Nicolas Batum. Yes, Rajon…

  5. Players union trying to keep the “play in Europe” dream alive for lockout

    Feb 14, 2011, 9:48 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s another negotiating tactic. Kobe Bryant followed in the footsteps of Dirk Nowitzki and Brandon Jennings in saying he might play in Europe — Italy, in this case — if there is a lockout. Except there is a massive hurdle — they are all under contract to an NBA team. Any player under an NBA…

  6. Gilbert Arenas says his problem is he’s being too passive

    Feb 14, 2011, 9:08 AM EDT

    Arenas magic

    Magic fans, the most recent comments by Gilbert Arenas should worry you. Yes, you got a nice big-game win over the Lakers Sunday, but that does not totally erase the recent losses to the Bulls, Heat and Celtics. You need more consistent play, more wins over quality teams before we are convinced any corner was…

  7. You’ll never believe it, but Blake Griffin had a monster dunk

    Feb 14, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Dallas Mavericks

    Is there a better way to start off your week than with a Blake Griffin dunk? Well, sure there is, but we’re not that kind of site. Best part of this all-oop from Sunday against the Raptors, watch Baron with the behind-the-back dribble for no particular reason. Which is very Baron. Of late he has…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Force was not with the Suns on Star Wars night

    Feb 14, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    What you missed while watching the story of Oedipus acted out by vegetables and voiced by Billy Dee Williams…. The Celtics holding on for a win over Miami and a Magic win over the Lakers were the games of the night. We threw is a bonus Wizards win over the Cavs story at no extra…

  9. Wizards end road drought with win over… Cleveland. Of course.

    Feb 13, 2011, 11:16 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It’s been 310 days since the Wizards last won a road game. But after going 0-25 this season on the road, the Wizards are finally off the snide. Thankfully, they ran into the Cleveland Cavaliers on a back to back, who, after breaking their own horrendous streak against the Clippers, dutifully wilted. The Wizards actually…

  10. Celtics Paul Pierce to get MRI on foot

    Feb 13, 2011, 7:29 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 4

    Paul Pierce was not Paul Pierce on Sunday, shooting 0-for-10 from the field. We thought it was the wrist on his shooting hand that he sprained Saturday, combined with the fact the Heat’s perimeter defenders are pretty athletic. But it was more than that — Pierce said after the game he was going to get…

  11. Magic play some defense, Lakers miss some shots, Magic cruise

    Feb 13, 2011, 6:39 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derek Fisher, Pau Gasol

    If you came into this game thinking the Lakers win in Boston was a mirage and they still can’t beat elite teams consistently, you watched this game and felt vindicated. You shouldn’t. If you believe that the Orlando Magic are elite despite recent losses to the Bulls, Heat and Celtics (and even Hornets), that they…

  12. LeBron James misses free throw as Celtics top Heat for third time

    Feb 13, 2011, 4:06 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    If you hate LeBron James, as much of the Western world does, today was quite a day for you. After being largely the only reason the Miami Heat were even in the game against the Boston Celtics, James clanged the first of two free throws down two with ten seconds left, then failed to save…

  13. Mark Cuban talks about the trade deadline and executives waiting too long

    Feb 13, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    You’ll start to notice a pattern, eventually. In the month leading up to the trade deadline, there will be a lot of talk about two possible eventualities. A. “This trade deadline looks to be the most active in years, with several teams shopping star players!” Or… B. “This trade deadline looks unusually slow and I…

  14. Here’s a tip. If you’re going to heckle someone, heckle smart.

    Feb 13, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Miami Heat

    So on Friday in Detroit, some genius decided to start making Valentine’s Day jokes at LeBron about his mother. You know the gag. You’ve seen these types of guys before. Acting as if they’re doing something fun, or trying to get at a player as if that’s righteous, when in reality, they’re just trying to…

  15. J.R. Smith: “(The Nuggets) don’t really know what they want to do.”

    Feb 13, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    J.R. Smith is an innocent bystander (for once, hey-o!) in all this drama regarding Melo (or…Melodrama, get it?). He’s just trying to go out there and play his best. His play this year has been a big reason the Nuggets, despite all the distractions, are sixth in the West, and feature the best offense in…

  16. DeMarcus Cousins suspended (even if that’s not the word they use) by Kings

    Feb 13, 2011, 3:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    DeMarcus Cousins has literally been everything people said about him prior to the draft. He’s been a hothead. He’s been a star. He’s been a beast. He’s been a huge pain in the neck. He’s been brilliant. He’s been a bonehead. The works. Tonight the pendulum has swung to bonehead, and the repercussions for Cousins’…

  17. The implications of Heat-Celtics III

    Feb 13, 2011, 12:43 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    For the first time this season, the Miami Heat will face the Boston Celtics with a better record.  But in the third meeting between the two best teams in the East, the Heat will need a significant amount of progress across all fronts in order to come away with their first victory over the Celtics.…

  18. J.J. Hickson informs Blake Griffin that he will not pass “Go”

    Feb 12, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    It’s only fitting that something spectacular encapsulated the Cavaliers getting over the hump of the single most epic losing streak in NBA history. It was going to take the players stepping up on a level we haven’t seen, and they definitely did. Particularly J.J. Hickson. J.J. Hickson was supposed to take the franchise forward into…

  19. Carmelo Anthony is really impressed with how Carmelo Anthony has handled things

    Feb 12, 2011, 5:08 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    You know, it’s not easy being Carmelo Anthony. You’re a featured player on the top offense in the league, the Denver Nuggets. You’re defended nightly by the best wing defender the opponent can throw at you. You’re trying to deal with a delicate situation regarding how best to continue your career in a larger market,…

  20. Rick Adelman sympathizes with Jerry Sloan’s situation

    Feb 12, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    When Jerry Sloan resigned this week, the reaction was almost unanimous across the league: shock. Sloan was an institution, someone who had always been on that sideline, week in and week out, year in and year out, for the Jazz and now, midseason, he was just gone. Just… gone. It created a moment for players…
