  1. Paul Millsap has bruised quad, patella; may sit out Monday

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Jazz have lost 7-of-8 and fallen out of the playoffs in the West. So, just what they need is a key player to go out. But it looks like the Jazz will be without Paul Millsap Monday and maybe a little longer. He did not take part in shootaround Monday as the Jazz get…

  2. Dwight Howard apologizes to Orlando for how exit went down

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:19 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    This isn’t going to change anything. It isn’t going to change that Dwight Howard has a home in Bel Air (an expensive Los Angeles enclave) and is wearing a Los Angeles Lakers jersey this season. It isn’t going to change the reaction Howard is going to get when he returns to Orlando on Tuesday. But…

  3. DeMarcus Cousins, your suspension is coming for elbowing Mike Dunleavy in head

    Mar 11, 2013, 12:59 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Scott Foster, Mike Dunleavy

    DeMarcus Cousins is going to get suspended for that. If there is one thing the Serge Ibaka nut shot on Blake Griffin made clear, it’s that the NBA league office takes prior offenses and any pattern of problems into account when dishing out punishments. This would be Cousins fourth suspension-worthy incident from the league this…

  4. Heat win over Pacers wasn’t statement game — the streak is the statement

    Mar 11, 2013, 11:44 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Regular season matchups are terrible predictors of post-season series. Last year the Celtics had taken three of four regular season games from the Heat but fell in the playoffs. The season before the Lakers had taken two of three late in the season from the Mavericks only to get swept out of the playoffs. And…

  5. League warns Nuggets Corey Brewer after flop vs. Clippers

    Mar 11, 2013, 10:36 AM EST

    Corey Brewer

    That play is pretty much exactly why the league added the flopping warning this season. The Nuggets’ Corey Brewer is running down court side-by-side with the Clippers’ Eric Bledsoe last Thursday (a Nuggets win), then there is minor contact and Brewer sells it like they were a sniper in the third row. And it worked,…

  6. Pistons’ Greg Monroe rips team after blowout loss

    Mar 11, 2013, 10:09 AM EST

    Lamar Odom, Greg Monroe

    LOS ANGELES — There was a lot of frustration in the Pistons locker room after the Los Angeles Clippers ran them out of the building on Sunday night (a 129-97 Los Angeles win). They aren’t the first team to be fodder for a Lob City highlight show, but in a good sign for the long…

  7. Kobe has a tough time relating to Dwight Howard saying his return to Orlando will be ‘emotional’

    Mar 11, 2013, 8:40 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    LOS ANGELES — Dwight Howard will make his return to Orlando on Tuesday when the Lakers visit to play the Magic, in what will be his first trip back since he tortured the fan base there for essentially the entirety of last season. The way Howard dealt with his eventual exit from Orlando has been…

  8. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Miami wants to know if you have any other challengers

    Mar 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat's guard Dwyane Wade goes to the basket past Indiana Pacers guard George Hill during their NBA game in Miami

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering where you’re going to get your next lion meat burger if not Chicago…. Lakers 90, Bulls 81: The Lakers offense has been better of late and the Bulls offense continues to be unimpressive. At best. Those things combine to give the…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: DeAndre’s dunk above all else

    Mar 11, 2013, 3:13 AM EST

    DeAndre Jordan

    There are great all-around performances, and then there are singular plays which rise above all else to define a day of NBA basketball. DeAndre Jordan‘s dunk over Brandon Knight falls into the latter category, and (spoiler alert) it earns him our top spot in the nightly rankings. Third Star: Dwight Howard (16 points, 21 rebounds,…

  10. Clippers try to jump-start defense for playoff run. Hapless Pistons help out.

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:06 AM EST

    DeAndre Jordan, Brandon Knight

    LOS ANGELES — Since the start of the season there have been two questions that seem to define just how far the Clippers can go: 1) How good is DeAndre Jordan playing at the five? 2) How good is the Clippers defense? The answer to both of those questions of late was “not good.” Which…

  11. Derrick Rose says hamstring issues keeping him off court

    Mar 10, 2013, 11:03 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose celebrates after teammate Luol Deng was fouled while shooting by Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    So it’s not the knee, it’s not dunking off the left foot, it’s the hamstring? Bulls injured point guard Derrick Rose spoke with ESPN sideline reporter Doris Burke (one of the best in the biz) and told her the reason he has not gotten back on the court is a hamstring issue. CSNChicago.com has the…

  12. DeAndre Jordan flat out destroys Brandon Knight (VIDEO)

    Mar 10, 2013, 10:55 PM EST

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan would like you to witness his entrant in the Dunk of the Year contest. It’s a good one. First off, that is a fantastic alley-oop pass from Chris Paul, he anticipated this really well. Brandon Knight did not, and so he ends up the unwitting guy just getting destroyed. I was at the…

  13. Kevin Durant crosses over Kevin Garnett, nails jumper (VIDEO)

    Mar 10, 2013, 8:54 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, Kevin Garnett, Jeff Green

    Kevin Durant is not fair. A 6’9″ guy with a freakishly long wingspan should not have the handles of a point guard and a killer jump shot. Which is why even when you put a feared defender like Kevin Garnett on Durant he can make the poor guy trying to stop him look bad. In…

  14. Lakers continue to build chemistry, move into the playoff picture with win over Bulls

    Mar 10, 2013, 6:03 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Steve Nash of Canada intervenes as Kobe Bryant berates Metta World Peace for committing a foul during their NBA game in Los Angeles

    LOS ANGELES — It’s been a long time in the making, and there’s plenty more work to be done over the regular season’s final 18 games. But for the first time all year, the Lakers can look at the standings and see themselves as an official part of the playoff picture after Sunday’s 90-81 win…

  15. George Karl shoves Wilson Chandler out of the way to complain to an official (VIDEO)

    Mar 10, 2013, 4:20 PM EST

    George Karl

    Late in the third quarter of Denver’s blowout win over Minnesota on Saturday, George Karl lost it after Ty Lawson was whistled for an offensive foul. The play could have been called on Rubio, but it did appear that Lawson may have initiated the contact by checking Rubio with the shoulder. Karl obviously didn’t see…

  16. Dwight Howard says he has been different player since All-Star Break

    Mar 10, 2013, 2:30 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Despite all the talk about his rough season — whether you attribute that to his back and shoulder injuries or his mental attitude (or, a combo of the two) — Dwight Howard has put up good numbers: 16.2 points a game on 57.7 percent shooting plus 12.1 rebounds a game. In his last 10 games…

  17. Jazz waive veteran guard Raja Bell

    Mar 10, 2013, 12:32 PM EST

    BELL_RAJA

    The season-long disagrement between the Utah Jazz and Raja Bell has finally reached its conclusion, as the team announced it has waived the 12-year veteran on Sunday. Bell has not been with the team at all this season after vocalizing unhappiness with his role and criticizing head coach Tyrone Corbin. The Jazz had paid him…

  18. Andre Iguodala gets way up to block a floater from Luke Ridnour (VIDEO)

    Mar 10, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Dallas Mavericks

    Luke Ridnour thought he knew what was doing on this fast break, pulling up a bit and attempting to shoot a floater high off the glass instead of challenging Andre Iguodala at the rim directly. It wasn’t a bad idea in theory, but in practice, not so much. Iguodala times his leap perfectly, and gets…

  19. Kendall Marshall with the one-handed bounce pass through the legs of Omer Asik (VIDEO)

    Mar 10, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Thomas Robinson, Kendall Marshall

    When you first see Suns rookie point guard Kendall Marshall find a cutting Jared Dudley with a one-handed bounce pass through the lane, sure, it looks like a nice play. But when you see the replay, where the ball clearly is thrown through the legs of Omer Asik on the way to finding its target,…

  20. David Lee misses Warriors’ loss to Bucks due to knee injury, says he’ll be ready to go Monday vs. Knicks

    Mar 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    David Lee, Zach Randolph

    David Lee sat out the Warriors’ 103-93 home loss to the Bucks on Saturday with a bruised right knee, but he doesn’t expect to be sidelined much longer. Lee was experiencing swelling in the knee, after banging it against the knee of Thomas Robinson midway through the first quarter of Golden State’s loss to Houston…
