  1. MRI finds nothing wrong with Lowry; he spends night in hospital

    Mar 9, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    UPDATE March 9, 8:55 am: The MRI of Kyle Lowry‘s groin — apparently the mystery injury moved up the leg from the original ankle report to the groin area — found nothing structurally wrong. Which is good. However Lowry still spend the night in the hospital as he had reportedly abdominal pains. This all sounds…

  2. Video: Derrick Rose beats the buzzer for three

    Mar 9, 2012, 8:25 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat

    The Bulls may not of have won Thursday night, but Derrick Rose still put on quite a show. That includes this buzzer beater just before halftime from about 30 feet out. By the way, Joakim Noah got an assist on this play… pretty generous score keeping but okay. The Bulls could have used a little…

  3. Phoenix 96, Dallas 94: Suns come back from double-digit defict to take down Mavericks

    Mar 9, 2012, 4:21 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    A few weeks ago, any talk involving the Phoenix Suns and the word “playoffs” would have seemed completely ridiculous — and maybe, to a certain extent, it still is. But the Suns have shown they possess the necessary grit and fight that is evident in postseason teams, battling back from double-digit deficits in their last…

  4. Orlando tries to send message to Howard: Look, we can beat Bulls

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:19 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Everything Orlando does for the next 6 days is colored by Dwight Howard trade talk. That includes their 99-94 win over Chicago Thursday night — the Magic are trying to convince Howard that they can be contenders with him in tow if they just make a couple tweaks. Beating the actual contenders from Chicago and…

  5. Derrick Rose is just like you — sick of Dwight Howard talk

    Mar 8, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    Are you sick of all the Dwight Howard rumors and talk? Derrick Rose is. Many Bulls fans have an odd obsession with Howard — they are offended Chicago is not on his list of preferred destinations because they see a Rose/Howard pairing as a cornerstone that can contend with the Heat. They see Howard as…

  6. Pacers showing trade interest in Jamal Crawford, Chris Kaman

    Mar 8, 2012, 9:24 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Indiana is a team you can expect to be busy around the trade deadline. There are a couple of reasons, for one they have a ton of cap space so they can take on contracts and not have to send back equal value (something teams trying to shed payroll covet). Secondly, they are a good…

  7. Do you need a closer to win in NBA? George Karl says no.

    Mar 8, 2012, 7:21 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    It looks great when Derrick Rose makes the sweet crossover and drains the jumper to win the game. Hero ball makes heroes when it works. But the league’s best “closers” miss more of those shots than they make. As we start to get more and more information that look at situations and players we learn…

  8. Is Tony Parker the fastest point guard in the NBA?

    Mar 8, 2012, 5:50 PM EDT

    Parker of the Spurs competes in the skills competition during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando, Florida

    It’s a great barstool or blog comment debate: “Who is the fastest point guard in the NBA?” Derrick Rose? John Wall? Russell Westbrook? Kyrie Irving? Nope, try Tony Parker. Advanced stats are trying to answer all our debates — who is the best guy to trust with a game-winning shot? — and one of them…

  9. Beasley trade talks ongoing with teams trying to woo Howard

    Mar 8, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley, Mike Dunleavy, Carlos Delfino

    If you were Dwight Howard, would the presence of Michael Beasley on a team make you want to play there? I wouldn’t think so either, but some of the teams most active in trying to get the forward out of Minnesota are teams trying to impress Howard, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. It’s no…

  10. Report: Josh Smith tells Hawks to trade him

    Mar 8, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith has been a borderline All-Star for years in Atlanta but that is different from being happy — he feels he is the scapegoat of the Hawks problems among the fans and media. He doesn’t feel like he has the backing of the organization or that they do things like promote him as an…

  11. Paul Silas rips Boris Diaw. Can you really blame him?

    Mar 8, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Boris Diaw

    We passed along the report a couple days ago that Boris Diaw asked to be traded or bought out by the Charlotte Bobcats. He was done, he wanted to get out of town. Sounds like the feeling is mutual. Diaw sat with a the DNP-CD on the last two games and coach Paul Silas didn’t…

  12. Hornets may not move Kaman… because of Mike Dunleavy?

    Mar 8, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    This is why the league needs to get out of the business of owning the Hornets fast, things like this get messy. It has been assumed that one of the guys that would certainly get moved at the trade deadline is Chris Kaman of the Hornets — they took him out of the lineup earlier…

  13. Stackhouse says ‘Sheed can still play the NBA game

    Mar 8, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace Pistons

    Rasheed Wallace’s reported comeback to the NBA remains in limbo. He worked out for the Heat, that’s all we know about it. The question isn’t if the Heat could use some help along the front line — they could, especially a “stretch five” who can shoot from three — the question is could ‘Sheed still…

  14. Lakers players frustrated with Mike Brown’s offense, should be frustrated with themselves

    Mar 8, 2012, 12:39 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace, Rodney Stuckey

    It’s not the offense, it’s the execution. It’s the players. But that’s not the way everyone sees it. What everyone does agree on is Wednesday night’s ugly Laker loss to the Wizards — where Los Angeles was up 21 in the third quarter to one of the worst teams in the league and came from…

  15. Thursday And-1 links: Derrick Rose Don’t Dance

    Mar 8, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Here is our daily 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). This is why the Internet is brilliant — the Derrick Rose Don’t Dance tumblr. Among the things that will factor into Dwight Howard’s decision making…

  16. More and more it sounds like Magic may not trade Howard

    Mar 8, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s be up front about the strategy: If you were the Orlando Magic and you planned to trade Dwight Howard, you would be smart to say publicly and to teams that call you were not going to make a trade. Make some team go James Dolan crazy and offer you too much for your star.…

  17. Stephen Jackson would love to play for Bulls, but really just wants to play

    Mar 8, 2012, 10:29 AM EDT

    Stephen Jackson

    Stephen Jackson is one name that is going to come up in a lot of trade rumors in the next week for two reasons: One, the guy has a long history of being able to put the ball in the basket, and at the end of the day that is still the name of the…

  18. Video: Nick Young with the worst layup you will ever see

    Mar 8, 2012, 9:34 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Miami Heat

    Few things make me literally laugh out loud at an NBA game — except the Kiss Cam, that’s ALWAYS funny — but this did. I feel bad for Nick Young, who knows how to score the rock and is now going to see this video all over the place for a while… but this is…

    What you missed while realizing you figured out who is going to win the Darwin Award this year…. Sixers 103, Celtics 71: This battle for the top spot in the Atlantic division — and the four seed at least in the playoffs, allowing a team to avoid Miami and Chicago in the first round —…

    Indianapolis Colts Release Peyton Manning - News Conference

    Well, if Peyton Manning comes to Miami it’s not like he is joining a super team… But the guys from Miami’s existing super team — the Miami Heat — made their pitch to get Manning to take his talents to South Beach. First Dwyane Wade tweeted this: I’m just gonna put it out thr..peyton that…
