  1. Off the court, Stoudemire remains committed to youth literacy

    Feb 28, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    Amar’e Stoudemire didn’t read a lot in his youth. Which means he was like most young people today — in a digital, video-game world getting children to read regularly is not an easy thing. Especially when those kids don’t relate to the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” or the other books out there. Stoudemire wanted…

  2. Beno Udrih latest to pile on Scott Skiles coaching style

    Feb 28, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Phoenix Suns

    Not many players would have been happy being shipped from a playoff bound Milwaukee Bucks to an Orlando Magic team that got routed by the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night. But such was the atmosphere with the Bucks under former coach Scott Skiles that Beno Udrih is happy with the trade. And he wasn’t just saying…

  3. Steve Nash says he wouldn’t change thing about his decision

    Feb 28, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Steve Nash, Darren Collison

    Steve Nash is not one for regret. When he decided to leave Phoenix to chase a ring the last couple years of his career he had plenty of suitors — the Knicks really wanted him in Manhattan, Toronto back in Canada, and other teams had inquired. But Nash chose the Lakers to be close to…

  4. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Every game from the most entertaining night of NBA season

    Feb 28, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Felton comes down on Golden State Warriors' Curry after trying to block his shot in their NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the rest of the legendary “pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” commercial…. Knicks 109, Warriors 105: Stephen Curry was the story… except for the part where his team didn’t win the game. That’s not on him — 54 points…

  5. Watch Stephen Curry knock down shot after shot against Knicks (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors' Curry dances down court after he hit a three-point shot against New York Knicks in their NBA basketball game in New York

    Stephen Curry put on a show for the ages at Madison Square Garden — he was playing in Jordan/Kobe/LeBron air on the big stage. He only needed a sliver of daylight to knock down a three (11-of-13 from beyond the arc) and he could put the ball on the floor and create space to shoot…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: It’s Stephen Curry’s world

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:24 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    This was the most exciting night of NBA action this season. That sadly meant a lot of good performances get left off the list — Monta Ellis had 27 points and the game winner, DeMar DeRozan dropped 33, Tyson Chandler had 28 rebounds, and the list goes on. But these guys finished on top —…

  7. Stephen Curry scores a career-high 54 points as Warriors lose to Knicks

    Feb 28, 2013, 12:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors' Curry and New York Knicks' Anthony wait for a rebound in their NBA basketball game in New York

    There are nights when guys get hot, and there are nights where guys are simply on fire. Stephen Curry gave us an exciting taste of the latter on Wednesday, pouring in a career-high 54 points while absolutely shooting the lights out, knocking down 11 of his 13 attempts from three-point distance. Curry’s amazing performance wasn’t…

  8. Monta Ellis hits an incredible game-winner to beat the Rockets (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 11:03 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    It wasn’t the most efficient nights for Monta Ellis, but when it was all said and done, it will go down as one of his more effective. Ellis shot just 9-24 from the field, and made only two of his six attempts from three-point distance. But he finished with game-highs in points (27), assists (13),…

  9. Dwight Howard surprises fans at adidas photo shoot (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 10:19 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    It’s always cool when fans are surprised and get to meet one of the biggest stars who plays for their hometown team, and that’s what adidas pulled off in Los Angeles during a photo opportunity with Dwight Howard. Fans lined up to take pictures, but had no idea Howard would be there inside to pose…

  10. Wizards broadcaster mistakes an airball for the game-winning shot (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    Nene, Bradley Beal, Randy Wittman, Trevor Ariza, Martell Webster

    It was so close. The Wizards trailed the Pistons by a single point with just over 12 seconds remaining on Wednesday, and as the ball went to Trevor Ariza in the corner with the game clock winding down, he launched what at first glance appeared to be a game-winning three-pointer that looked like it went…

  11. Wednesday And-1 links: Mike Woodson has the best T-shirt ever

    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 like kids love pizza. • Knicks coach Mike Woodson was wearing a T-shirt with…

  12. Kyrie Irving out again Wednesday, reportedly had MRI

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:46 PM EDT

    East All-Star Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers competes in the three-point contest during the NBA basketball All-Star weekend in Houston

    Kyrie Irving is sitting out the Cavaliers game against the Raptors on Wednesday, which was to be expected. When he missed Tuesday’s game we told you that this was likely. But in announcing he is out there is an interesting note from Bob Finnan of the News Herald on twitter. Cavs guard Kyrie Irving had…

  13. Metta World Peace hits Kenneth Faried with an elbow to the head, perhaps accidentally (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    This was the last play of the third quarter during the Lakers’ drubbing at the hands of the Nuggets on Monday, which might explain why there was no foul called on the play, and why it largely fell under the radar of just about everyone watching. Ben Hochman of the Denver Post noticed, however, and…

  14. Warriors’ Lee, Pacers’ Hibbert both suspended one game for scuffle

    Feb 27, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    Indiana's Roy Hibbert shoves Golden State's David Lee during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    We knew that Roy Hibbert’s suspension was coming — he threw Stephen Curry to the ground during a shoving match that broke out between the Pacers and Warriors on Tuesday night. Hibbert has been suspended one game, as has the Warriors David Lee, the league announced Wednesday. Lee will sit out Wednesday night when the…

  15. Former NBA player Shawne Williams pleads guilty on marijuana charge

    Feb 27, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    shawne williams nets arrested

    We told you back in December former NBA player Shawne Williams had been arrested on a marijuana charge in the Memphis area — a policeman caught him smoking out in his parked Porsche. There was also some “syrup” — codine heavy cough syrup — in the car. Now Williams has pled guilty but is not…

  16. Report: D.J. White finally gets clearance from China, to sign with Celtics

    Feb 27, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

    D.J. White, Taj Gibson

    The fact forward D.J. White is going to sign with the Celtics is not new news — he’s actually been hanging around the team waiting for the time to come. But the fact he finally got clearance from his Chinese team to do so is new. The letter has come and White is expected to…

  17. Roy Hibbert apologizes, says he has spoken to league already

    Feb 27, 2013, 2:58 PM EDT

    David Lee, Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert is still going to get suspended. The pushing match between Hibbert and David Lee Tuesday night escalated when Hibbert threw Stephen Curry to the ground. But the damage may be mitigated some after Hibbert apologized and spoke to the league about what had happened. Hibbert said he gave his side of the story…

  18. Metta World Peace’s words become poetry

    Feb 27, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Metta World Peace is his own kind of poetry sometimes. Interviewing him can mean stream-of-consciousness tangents mixed with shards of real insight. Or, it can just be weird. But it’s almost never like most clichéd interviews. And in a way that’s its own kind of poetry. Now Jeff Parker, a published author and also the…

  19. Jesus Shuttlesworth, er, Ray Allen may want to act again when he retires

    Feb 27, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Ray Allen Denzel Washington

    Ray Allen has already had a movie role plenty of actors in Hollywood would kill for — staring role opposite Denzel Washington in a major Spike Lee production. He was Jesus Shuttlesworth in “He Got Game.” After that Allen left acting and went on to a nice little 16-year (and counting) basketball career where he…

  20. Report: Davis out, Gordon questionable for Hornets vs. Thunder

    Feb 27, 2013, 1:37 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    This was already going to be a rough spot for New Orleans — second night of a back-to-back facing a rested Oklahoma City. That’s a game nobody expects the Hornets to win. And now things just got a whole lot harder — Anthony Davis is out with a shoulder sprain and Eric Gordon is unlikely…
