    Two point guards better than one for Toronto

  2. Thursday NBA grades: The Sixers deserve an “A+”…. for tanking

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

  3. Four remaining games the Sixers can win

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:35 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

  4. Shawn Marion gets in the face of Matt Barnes after being shoved twice on one possession (VIDEO)

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:16 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    The Clippers and the Mavericks were engaged in a chippy and competitive contest on Thursday, which is completely understandable given the position that Dallas is currently in, fighting for their playoff lives. There were multiple technicals handed out throughout the game, a few of which were earned during this one incident that took place midway…

  5. Sixers tie NBA record with 26th consecutive loss, this one at hands of Rockets

    Mar 27, 2014, 11:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

  6. Report: Marshall University contacts Lakers’ Mike D’Antoni about vacant coaching position

    Mar 27, 2014, 10:12 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Washington Wizards

    Mike D’Antoni is in the midst of guiding this version of the Lakers to one of the worst seasons in franchise history, and even though he has two years left on his deal, only one of them is guaranteed, and his future in Los Angeles couldn’t possibly be less certain once this current campaign comes…

  7. Chris Bosh says league needs to ‘revisit what flagrant foul means’ after losing physical battle with Pacers

    Mar 27, 2014, 9:01 PM EDT

    Detroit at Miami

    LeBron James was on the wrong end of the whistle on two particularly physical plays during the Heat’s loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, and when it was over, Chris Bosh was the one speaking up on his team’s behalf. James has been here before, obviously, and wasn’t interested in having his comments become a lightning…

  8. Thursday And-1 Links: Carmelo Anthony wants to mentor DeMarcus Cousins

    Mar 27, 2014, 7:45 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Carmelo Anthony

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Carmelo Anthony told the Sacramento Bee he wants to help mentor DeMarcus Cousins.…

  9. Royce White no longer with Kings after second 10-day contract expires

    Mar 27, 2014, 6:41 PM EDT

    Royce White

    The Kings signed Royce White to consecutive 10-day contracts, but allowed the most recent one to expire without inking the troubled player for the remainder of the season. Sacramento hardly gave White a decent look, at least at the NBA level. The first 10 days or so he spent in the D-League, and when he…

  10. Syracuse freshman point guard Tyler Ennis to enter NBA Draft

    Mar 27, 2014, 5:28 PM EDT

    Syracuse v Dayton

    Apparently Jim Boeheim’s selfish advice wasn’t heeded. Syracuse’s freshman point guard Tyler Ennis — projected to be taken in the middle of the first round of the NBA Draft, maybe late lottery — announced on Thursday he is turning pro and entering this June’s draft. “I’d like to thank Coach Boeheim, the coaching staff, my…

  11. Report: With Phil Jackson in charge, Metta World Peace hopes for return to Knicks

    Mar 27, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Los Angeles Clippers

    When rebuilding the Knicks, I’m sure Phil Jackson will turn to a 34-year-old wing with arthritic knees and a declining skill set.

  12. Gregg Popovich on why Patty Mills didn’t play more last year: “He was a little fat ass”

    Mar 27, 2014, 3:34 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich, Patty Mills

    Gregg Popovich has reached the “I don’t care what people think” phase of his career… actually that might have started Day 3 of his tenure in San Antonio, but the coach is taking it to new levels lately. Patty Mills has taken on a bigger role with the Spurs this season, in part because of…

  13. Bucks to shut down Ersan Ilyasova for rest of season

    Mar 27, 2014, 2:47 PM EDT

    Ersan Ilyasova

    Ersan Ilyasova, who has battled foot and ankle issues all season for the Milwaukee Bucks, has now seen a doctor and gotten the word. The Bucks are shutting down Ilyasova for the rest of the season, the team announced Tuesday. He will not require surgery, but he needs rehabilitation. The injuries took a tool on…

  14. LaMarcus Aldridge will return to Trail Blazers lineup Thursday

    Mar 27, 2014, 1:26 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    LaMarcus Aldridge returns to a Blazers team that is 3-8 in their last 11 and is just 2 games up on falling out of the playoffs completely. They need him.

  15. Marcin Gortat says Wizards are sometimes ‘mentally weak’

    Mar 27, 2014, 12:33 PM EDT

    Marcin Gortat

    Depending on your perspective, the Washington Wizards either blew their game against Phoenix last night by falling behind by 25 points in the third quarter or showed resiliency by cutting the deficit to three points late. Considering the Suns ultimately won, 99-93, you can guess how the Washington players interpreted the game. Marcin Gortat, via…

  16. As you should have expected, Mark Jackson denies he wants out of Golden State

    Mar 27, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    And now come the denials…. In a report about Mark Jackson demoting assistant coach Brian Scalabrine (apparently for arguing with another assistant coach who has deeper, longer ties with Jackson) Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported that last summer Jackson had kicked the tires on other coaching jobs in Brooklyn and with the Los Angeles…

  17. Gregg Popovich on Danny Green: ‘All of a sudden he couldn’t walk’

    Injury interrupts Green’s red-hot 3-point shooting

  18. Why Joel Embiid is denying he’s declared for the NBA draft

    Mar 27, 2014, 10:46 AM EDT

    Joel Embiid

    Adrian Wojnarowski, a credible journalist, reported earlier today Joel Embiid would declare for the NBA draft. On Twitter, Embiid is telling a different story: @JumariTraylur huh??— Joel-Hans Embiid (@jojo_embiid) March 27, 2014 @humblekid11 haven't made a decision yet— Joel-Hans Embiid (@jojo_embiid) March 27, 2014 There are two possibilities: 1. Embiid truly hasn’t made up his…
