  1. Curry says he likes playing with Ellis

    Mar 18, 2010, 1:35 PM EDT

    If it was all on the court, it would be fine. Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry work together pretty well on the court (at least on Don Nelson’s free-for-all system), with Curry at the point and Ellis as the slasher. Off the court, Monta has his issues with the way everything has gone down. The…

  2. Boston's got a hard road to hoe

    Mar 18, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Boston’s been shrugging off accusations that their problem isn’t a lack of effort but a lack of talent against top teams for months. They’ve said the phrase “these games don’t matter” about a million times in the last month. But if the Celtics want to avoid facing one of the top teams in the first…

  3. Have we seen the last of Scalabrine?

    Mar 18, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Michael Finley has come to the Celtics and not sucked. We did not see that coming. He’s shooting 13 percent better overall, eight percent better from three and is scoring four more points a game than he did near the Riverwalk in San Antonio It’s good for the Celtics. Well, every Celtics not named Brian…

  4. Triple double can send you to Arby's

    Mar 18, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    We Want Tacos! We want to print out the box score from this game and get small curly fries! Doesn’t quite have the same ring. Detroit, if you’re going to do a food promotion, do it right, and don’t be cheap. We’ll turn it over to Empty the Bench to explain (via Trey Kerby, who…

  5. Bucks not thrilled Bogut may play Worlds

    Mar 18, 2010, 10:57 AM EDT

    Andrew Bogut — defensive stopper. There’s something I never thought I’d type a couple years ago, but Bogut has grown his game. Give the man his due. In his last 10 he’s averaged three-and-a-half blocks a game to go with his 16 points. Since the All-Star game he’s been the second best center in the…

  6. Chris Paul may be back by weekend

    Mar 18, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    And the New Orleans backcourt situation is about to get interesting. Chris Paul, who underwent knee surgery on Feb. 4, has been back practicing before games — running, taking shots and generally looking good. Good enough to be playing this weekend, according to the Times Picayune (easily my favorite newspaper name in the nation). Paul…

  7. Granger out indefinitely

    Mar 18, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    Indiana isn’t very good with Danny Granger in the lineup. Without him… ugh. Well, it’s going to be more ugh for a while. While a CT scan of his head and neck showed no serious damage, the Indianapolis Star is reporting there is no timetable for Granger’s return. “(The team’s physicians will) evaluate him on…

  8. Chris Bosh game winner

    Mar 18, 2010, 9:38 AM EDT

    It’s not just Kobe and LeBron — Chris Bosh can hit a game winner, too. And make it look easy.

  9. Lakers all kiss Kobe's a–

    Mar 18, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant can dominate the ball and take the Lakers out of their offense. In other breaking news, the sun rises in the East and Kirstie Alley may have put on a few pounds. So Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles asked the Lakers shooting coach Craig Hodges if anyone stands up to Kobe on this team,…

  10. D-League team beats Hornets

    Mar 18, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    Don Nelson threw a D-League team out on an NBA floor Wednesday night. Almost literally. Anthony Tolliver was playing in Idaho in January. Reggie Williams was playing for Sioux Falls last month. Chris Hunter was playing for Fort Wayne when the season started. Three guys who were sharing hotel rooms, flying in coach, carrying all…

  11. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 18, 2010, 2:48 AM EDT

    What happened Wednesday, while you were asking “What’s That Song?“… Bobcats 100 Thunder 92: Raymond Felton is probably better than you think he is. He’s been a huge part of the Bobcats’ success this year, and his ability to create chaos in the offensive set now that teams can’t collapse because of Stephen Jackson is…

  12. Leaner, meaner Amare

    Mar 17, 2010, 11:42 PM EDT

    Since the All-Star Game, Amare Stoudemire has been Beasting. With the capital “B.” Like Kobe/LeBron level Beasting. In the last 10 games he is averaging 28 points, 9 rebounds, shooting 54.6 percent and attacking the rim so he gets 10 free throws a game. He and Steve Nash are running an unstoppable pick-and-roll like they…

  13. Rajon Rondo is not lacking for confidence

    Mar 17, 2010, 9:37 PM EDT

    There’s a fine line between the confidence you need to carry yourself with in order to achieve greatness, and a hubris that belies an arrogance that will get you bit in the ass. Rajon Rondo is taking a whiz all over that line. In an interview with HoopsTV, Rondo had some things to say about…

  14. Ron Artest can still defend

    Mar 17, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    The scales must be balanced. If not for the sake of justice and Karma, then at least because I’ll be at the Lakers game and talking to Ron Artest this weekend, and I don’t want him angry at me. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Earlier today as part of our seemingly daily bit…

  15. Drafting the NCAA Tourney: Washington's Quincy Pondexter

    Mar 17, 2010, 5:03 PM EDT

    We all love the NCAA tournament, but as NBA fans we watch it with a different eye — who is going to be coming out of this showcase and on to the NBA. This is part of a series looking at future NBA players you should watch this weekend. Every draft you hear this from…

  16. Winderman: Jordan not playing with OPM anymore

    Mar 17, 2010, 3:54 PM EDT

    Even those not familiar with advance stats have been quick to notice how Michael Jordan has flourished over the years with OPM. Now, with Wednesday’s ownership approval from the NBA’s Board of Governors, that figures to change. Jordan’s success with other people’s money, be it Jerry Reinsdorf’s, Abe Pollin’s or even Bob Johnson’s, no longer…

  17. The Spurs painful Splitter

    Mar 17, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    Watching the Spurs this season, it is painfully obvious they need an infusion of youth. Well, not the last couple weeks, when Manu Ginobili has apparently found a fountain of the stuff. But for most of the season the Spurs have just looked old and slow. They could use a guy like Tiago Splitter. The…

  18. Celebrating the NBA's Irish, like Lamar O'do'm

    Mar 17, 2010, 2:35 PM EDT

    I’ve struggled all day to think of the best way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day NBA style. Leave it to the boys at The Basketball Jones to celebrate the NBA’s Irish legends in song — famed players like Fabricio O’Berto and Greg O’Den. Enjoy.

  19. Drafting the NCAA Tourney: Butler's Gordon Hayward

    Mar 17, 2010, 2:20 PM EDT

    We all love the NCAA tournament, but as NBA fans we watch it with a different eye — who is going to be coming out of this showcase and on to the NBA. This is part of a series looking at future NBA players you should watch this weekend. Certainly there is no reason to…

  20. The official PBT NCAA "office pool"

    Mar 17, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    What, you think you know more about college basketball than me? Well, actually you probably do. My wife will likely beat me in this year’s pool, and she was confused as to where UCLA was in the bracket and why she couldn’t find it. (For the record, and so I’m not sleeping on the couch…
