  1. Magic’s Nicholson ejected for late cheap shot on Cavs’ Varejao (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Varejao

    Near the very end of the Cavaliers’ win over the Magic on Friday, Orlando’s Andrew Nicholson was called for a flagrant two foul that resulted in an automatic ejection for shoving Anderson Varejao to the floor. Apparently Nicholson didn’t appreciate the fact that Varejao scored the meaningless basket with the Cavs up six and just…

  2. Report: Knicks ownership may reconsider trade for Lowry if team continues to struggle

    Dec 14, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    The Raptors are rebuilding, and so not surprisingly, just about every player on the roster not tied to the team’s long-term plans is available in trade. Kyle Lowry is a skilled point guard that could help many teams, and with an expiring deal for just $6.1 million, he would come at a palatable price. But…

  3. Kobe gets the assist with a pass off of Serge Ibaka’s backside (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers were predictably shellacked by the Thunder on Friday, thanks both to OKC being one of the league’s five best teams, along with the fact that the Lakers have no point guards on the roster due to injury and are slowly working Kobe Bryant back into the mix. Bryant finished with just four points…

  4. Suns coach Hornacek instructs team in locker room before game vs. Kings (VIDEO)

    markieff morris hornacek

    The Suns did something pretty great on Friday, providing an all-day multi-media experience that showed hours of behind-the-scenes video of what goes into a game day’s preparation. While plenty of the footage provided would be more than interesting to even the more casual fans, the public access to the way Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek…

  5. Al Horford drains fadeaway in OT to beat Wizards (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    Washington defended that pretty well, just a better shot by a very good player. Tied 99-99 in OT, the Hawks had 1.8 seconds to get off a shot, so it looked like double OT. Al Horford sets a couple (pretty soft) screens on the strong side then fades away to the weak side by the…

  6. Report: Suns looking to trade 2014 draft picks in order to win now

    Dec 13, 2013, 9:47 PM EDT

    Ryan McDonough

    The Suns under new GM Ryan McDonough have been widely praised for setting themselves up for success by attempting to rebuild the franchise in what is conventionally believed around the league to be the right way. That process involves pain at the beginning due to the losing that typically accompanies a roster that’s been intentionally…

  7. Friday night video flashback: Bernard King with the Warriors

    Dec 13, 2013, 8:34 PM EDT

    Bernard King

    We associate Hall of Famer Bernard King with the Knicks, where he spent the prime of his career. With good reason. But like a lot of stars that’s not the only place he played — he spent a couple of years of his prime in the Bay Area playing for Golden State (right before they…

  8. Mike D’Antoni to Pau Gasol: “There’s no reason to not play hard”

    Dec 13, 2013, 7:13 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    This has been evident for a while. When we had Kevin Ding, the Lakers writer for Bleacher Report, on the PBT Podcast he said Gasol was getting his chance but just was not putting out the effort to take it. He said the frustration with Gasol this year was similar to Dwight Howard last season.…

  9. Report: Wherever Asik is traded it won’t be to New Orleans, Milwaukee

    Dec 13, 2013, 6:22 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets are set to trade valuable big man Omer Asik and want to get it done by next Thursday (the reason is anyone they get in a trade by then can be flipped again at the trading deadline, after that date they have the player for the rest of the season). Houston would…

  10. Kevin Love becoming a 25-15-5 master

    Dec 13, 2013, 5:46 PM EDT

    8d82d708cd5a9dc357454c1e04847b7b

    Entering this season, no player had posted back-to-back 25-point, 15-rebound, 5-assist games since 2006-07.* Kevin Love has already done it twice this year. *Pau Gasol did it with the Memphis Grizzlies in April of that season. Love had 26 points, 15 rebounds and five assists in a win over the 76ers on Wednesday night, giving…

  11. Trade rumor update: Nets may be Kyle Lowry frontrunners

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Charlotte Bobcats

    When last we left off with “Days of our Kyle Lowry,” the Raptors were shopping their favorite point guard around hard and had talked with New York. Then Knicks owner James Dolan pulled the plug on it because… well, he’s James Dolan. Now the Nets may be the frontrunners but the Knicks want back in…

  12. Report: Sixers considering trading Evan Turner

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Atlanta Hawks

    Evan Turner leads the Philadelphia 76ers in scoring this season — he’s still not a great shooter but he has a couple spots he can get to on the floor (along the baselines in the midrange) where he is solid, plus he is finishing better inside. He’s really a solid rotation player on most teams,…

  13. LaMarcus Aldridge, Robin Lopez try to sell you a car (VIDEO)

    Dec 13, 2013, 3:42 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    One of the best parts of NBA League Pass is getting to see the quirky local commercial in cities around the nation. From Pizza Guy in Sacramento to Native American casinos all over this land, there are some amusing advertisements. Like this one from Portland featuring LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez. Brilliant. Hat tip to…

  14. Patrick Patterson learned he was traded on way to see “Hunger Games.” Still went to movie.

    Dec 13, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Patrick Patterson

    For the Toronto Raptors, Rudy Gay never got out of the hotel while Aaron Gray was doing a pregame workout when they found out they had been traded to Sacramento. But nothing was as good as Patrick Patterson’s story that he had been sent back the other way. Patterson was taking his mom to see…

  15. PBT Podcast for Dec. 13: Talking Asik, Gasol trades plus NBA Draft with Rob Dauster

    Dec 13, 2013, 2:52 PM EDT

    Towson v Kansas

    Once again you, dear readers, were the programmers for this edition of the PBT Podcast — myself and Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio took your twitter questions and tried to answer them. What you care about this week are trades and the draft. With that we talk about how the Lakers aren’t looking to make…

  16. Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim says Wiggins, Parker, others not worth tanking for

    Dec 13, 2013, 2:28 PM EDT

    Davidson v Duke

    Yes, but what would Jim Boeheim have said if he was successful at recruiting Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker? There’s plenty of talk about teams tanking this season for the chance to draft Wiggins, Parker, Julius Randle, Joel Embiid and the other elite players expected in the upcoming draft. You need franchise changing players to…

  17. Gilbert Arenas wants another NBA chance, notices Knicks, Nets could use help

    Dec 13, 2013, 1:23 PM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas china

    Gilbert Arenas last stepped on an NBA court on May 13, 2012, as a lightly used backup guard for the Memphis Grizzlies. After the last couple years of his career and at age 32, let’s just say it’s a long shot we get to The Hibachi back in an NBA uniform. But he’s hoping for…

  18. Lakers’ security guard arrested for allegedly stealing two championship rings

    Dec 13, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Lakers Ring Ceremony Basketball

    The Lakers and Los Angeles Kings share a practice facility in El Segundo — basically near LAX — and a security guard at that facility has been arrested for allegedly stealing two NBA championship rings plus $20,000 in gift cards. The Daily Breeze newspaper, which covers this part of L.A., has the details. Eddie J.…

  19. Pau Gasol expresses frustration with D’Antoni offense. Lakers have to think trade.

    Dec 13, 2013, 12:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Pau Gasol just does not fit in Mike D’Antoni’s offense. And it shows. In years past I’ve defended Gasol because one segment of Lakers fans were unnecessarily harsh on him because he didn’t play like Shaq — but how Gasol played was perfect for the triangle. The Lakers won back-to-back rings because of him, not…

  20. Report: Grizzlies shopping Zach Randolph around, want deal with Pelicans

    Dec 13, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    Zach Randolph can, and likely will, become a free agent next summer. He is owed $16.9 million but at age 32 he may want the security of a longer deal even if he takes a little less per year to get it. Which means if you’re Memphis you may not be able to keep the…
