  1. Pacers edge Heat in showdown of East’s top teams

    Mar 26, 2014, 11:28 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Pacers and the Heat haven’t been playing anywhere near their best basketball as of late, and whether that’s a product of late-season malaise or simply a combination of fatigue and attrition remains to be seen. Their matchup on Wednesday was largely more of the same, before the fourth quarter began and the competitive fire…

  2. Dion Waiters hits the game-winner at the buzzer to beat the Pistons (VIDEO)

    Dion Waiters hit the tough long two as time expired on Wednesday to give his Cavaliers a win over the Pistons. Detroit led by as many as 16 at one point, which was the only thing remarkable about this one save for Waiters hitting the clutch shot. Matthew Delladova was Cleveland’s leading scorer with 21…

  3. Nets’ Jorge Gutierrez ejected for flagrant two foul on Bobcats’ Cody Zeller (VIDEO)

    Midway through the fourth quarter of the Nets’ overtime loss to the Bobcats, Jorge Gutierrez came down with two hands on Cody Zeller, causing both players to come crashing to the floor. The play was originally ruled a flagrant-one, but after the referees reviewed it, the ruling was changed to a flagrant-two which resulted in an…

  4. Report: Phil Jackson continues to belive in Iman Shumpert

    Mar 26, 2014, 8:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    Iman Shumpert has regressed a bit this season with the Knicks, struggling to stay healthy as a productive member of the lineup while taking plenty of criticism from head coach Mike Woodson in the early part of the season at the same time. Shumpert returned to the New York lineup in the team’s embarrassing loss…

  5. Rajon Rondo to fill in as analyst on Celtics broadcast

    Mar 26, 2014, 7:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Rajon Rondo is being held out of back-to-back contests by the Celtics this season, in order to be extra-cautious with the team’s franchise player who’s coming off of serious surgery, and playing in what is nothing more than a rebuilding year for the organization. That little wrinkle allows Rondo to be available for things he wouldn’t…

  6. Ray Allen has flu, doubtful to play vs. Pacers Wednesday

    Mar 26, 2014, 5:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates a three point shot against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    I don’t need to remind you that Ray Allen makes big plays for the Heat in big games. But he will not be taking part in Wednesday’s big showdown with Indiana. Ray Allen (stomach virus) did not participate in this morning’s shootaround and is listed as doubtful for tonight’s #HEATgame.— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) March 26,…

  7. Pau Gasol to miss at least two more games due to vertigo

    Mar 26, 2014, 4:46 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Pau Gasol never came out of the locker room for the second half of the Lakers win Sunday over the Magic, then took three IV bags of fluid and spent the night in the hospital. The official diagnosis was vertigo, and it kept Gasol out of the Lakers beat down of the Knicks on Tuesday…

  8. PBT Extra: Previewing Heat vs. Pacers Wednesday showdown

    Mar 26, 2014, 3:55 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    The first thing to know: This Wednesday night showdown between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers is not going to be a great preview of the Eastern Conference Finals. Yes, I still think they meet in the ECF (the odds of it in my mind have gone from 99.9% down to 90%, but I still…

  9. Danny Ainge says there are “no game changers” in this draft. In short term he’s right.

    Mar 26, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    Towson v Kansas

    The 2014 NBA Draft Class — assuming that Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid and the rest of the young stars declare — has been hyped as the best thing since 2003. That may turn out to be an overreaction. After the three players mentioned above were eliminated the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, some in…

  10. Watch Lakers 51 points on Knicks in third quarter (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Knicks fans, you should not watch this. That is all the Lakers’ buckets from their third quarter, 51-point explosion on the Knicks Tuesday night. What the Lakers did to blow out the Knicks was hustle and share the ball. Nothing more. This is the NBA, give guys an open shot and they will knock it…

  11. LaMarcus Aldridge could return to Portland lineup Thursday. They need him. Desperately.

    Mar 26, 2014, 1:06 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Portland Trail Blazers are 3-8 in their last 11, have lost three in a row now and hit a new low in a loss to Orlando on Tuesday. They are sliding down the Western Conference standings and look like the team everyone wants to face in the first round of the playoffs. Except they…

  12. Raptors trying to rest Kyle Lowry down the stretch

    Mar 26, 2014, 12:47 PM EDT

    Shelvin Mack;  Jeff Teague; Kyle Lowry

    Kyle Lowry, after averaging 36.7 minutes per game in his first 68 games this season, played just 27 minutes in a win over the Hawks on Sunday. He’d played less only in a pair of blowout wins over the Jazz. Cause for concern for the Raptors? Barely. It’s much more indicative of Toronto’s positive season.…

  13. Chris Kaman says he hasn’t talked to Mike D’Antoni in three weeks

    Mar 26, 2014, 11:01 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Chris Kaman

    Kobe Bryant doesn’t seem to get along with Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni, though that’s a message sent through anonymous sources. Want a Lakers veteran willing to go on the record about his issues with D’Antoni? Look no further than Chris Kaman. Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News: Chris Kaman said he hasn't talked…

  14. Phil Jackson leaves ‘awful’ Knicks game early to walk dog

    Mar 26, 2014, 10:18 AM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    Remember when there was concern Phil Jackson would be too removed to effectively run the Knicks? With health and family tying him to California, how much time would he actually spend in New York? Everyone figured at least he’d at least have no trouble seeing the Knicks when they played in Los Angeles twice a…

  15. Fred Carter says current Sixers worse than his 1973 9-win team

    Mar 26, 2014, 9:36 AM EDT

    fred-carter-philadelphia-sixers-1973

    Fred Carter was the best player on arguably the worst team ever. He was the team MVP of the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers went 9-73, the worst record of any NBA team for a full season (remember the Bobcats were 7-50 I’m the lockout year, which worked out to a worse winning percentage). That Sixers team…

  16. Watch Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki trade buckets

    Mar 26, 2014, 9:19 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki , Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant and Dirk Nowitizki put on a real show Tuesday night, one that couldn’t be contained in regulation. Durant finished with 43 points (on 27 shots) as he was getting to the basket and knocking down threes, generally looking like the best scorer in the game. Nowitzki finished with 32 points (on 23 shots) and…

    Spurs' Ginobili goes to the basket past Miami's Wade during Game 5 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio
