  1. Report: Nuggets put “Birdman” Chris Andersen on trade block

    Mar 5, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    CAnderson_necktat

    At the San Francisco Chronicle, they have done a detailed team-by-team breakdown of trade options for the Warriors. For example, they say Golden State doesn’t want to do a Stephen Curry for Rajon Rondo swap with Boston (the Celtics wouldn’t do that one either). But when it got to Denver there was an interesting note:…

  2. Wilson Chandler, Nuggets still talking, not getting very far

    Mar 5, 2012, 3:58 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, Kobe Bryant

    Here are the two key facts as we know them: First, Wilson Chandler can’t play for any NBA team but the Denver Nuggets this season. Since he returned from playing in China during the lockout, the deadline has passed for other teams to offer the restricted free agent a deal (something nobody did because everyone…

  3. Report: Portland’s Jamal Crawford “available”

    Mar 5, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    When we told you the Portland Trail Blazers might be looking to make big changes, we weren’t kidding. Raymond Felton is getting his tires kicked by the Lakers and likely other teams, as the point guard brought in has not fit as planned. Same can be said of Jamal Crawford, who also can be had…

  4. Chris Webber emerges as mentor for DeMarcus Cousins

    Mar 5, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Demarcus Cousins

    Chris Webber had All-Star years and put up big numbers on a contending team while in Sacramento — he’s looked back on as one of the team’s legendary players. Now. But there were plenty of rough spots at the time. He didn’t really want to be traded there initially (because they had been a consistent…

  5. D’Antoni says he is sticking with Lin as starter, usually closer

    Mar 5, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin, Baron Davis,  J.R Smith

    The buzz is out there — as “Linsanity” fades and reality comes into play, Baron Davis could steal the Knicks starting point guard spot from Jeremy Lin. That idea may have been bolstered Sunday when Rajon Rondo put up a triple-double on Lin, while Lin shot 1-for-7 in the overtime. It’s not happening yet, coach…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls grab top spot by the horns

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    The top three are pretty much set, it’s just a matter of who is playing the best among them at this moment. Right now it’s Chicago. The bottom three are pretty much locked in, too, but the Bobcats have really grabbed hold of the last spot and made it their own. 1. Bulls (31-8, last…

  7. Baron Davis says playing for Clippers almost killed his love of the game

    Mar 5, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Right now, the Los Angeles Clippers are the most entertaining team to watch in the NBA. They are athletic, fast paced, smart thanks to Chris Paul at the helm. They are learning to be contenders. There is a buzz around their games that is reminiscent of that other team in Staples Center — the building…

  8. Monday And-1 links: A couple rumors, Kobe’s mask, more

    Mar 5, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Pau Gasol

    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). The Clippers and Timberwolves have some interest in Jamal Crawford of Portland and trade talks may follow. Crawford was brought in after the Brandon Roy…

  9. Report: Lakers, Trail Blazers discuss Raymond Felton trade

    Mar 5, 2012, 10:32 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The Lakers desperately need a true point guard. The Trail Blazers have been very unhappy with Raymond Felton this season — mostly because he’s looked heavy, is shooting 36.8 percent, 24.6 percent from three, and his turnovers are up. So while it may be odd to have two division rivals talking trade, the Lakers and…

  10. Video: Monta Ellis with circus layup against Toronto

    Mar 5, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Monta Ellis is one of the most entertaining scorers in the league and this 360 reverse layup from Sunday’s game against the Raptors is a must see. With the Warriors scoring just 28 points in the second half, it pretty much took shots like this for them to get buckets. And it’s nice to see…

  11. If Marcin Gortat can get 20 rebounds in a game, you’ll see him shoot three-pointers

    Mar 5, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    gortat-thumb-injury7

    Marcin Gortat has a deal with the Suns’ coaching staff this season: get 20 rebounds in a game, do what you like. As you’ll soon see, this is a very serious and important matter to Gortat — so much so that he believes there might have been a conspiracy to keep him from reaching that…

  12. Knicks’ Bill Walker out 4-6 weeks following elbow surgery

    Mar 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Through the first half of the season Bill Walker was getting a fair amount of run with the Knicks, but that had started to change in the last few weeks. First Carmelo Anthony returned and soaked up most of the minutes at the small forward spot. Then Steve Novak developed a real chemistry with Jeremy…

  13. Brook Lopez rolls ankle, leaves arena on crutches

    Mar 5, 2012, 8:10 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Landry Fields

    Brook Lopez has been back just five games after foot surgery — and his impact on the Nets has been clear. The Nets are 3-2 in those games including wins over New York and Dallas, with Lopez averaging 19.2 points per game. But now the Nets may be without him again for a stretch. Lopez…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s the Deron Williams show

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:18 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    What you missed while suing your college because your dorm roommate had too much sex… Celtics 115, Knicks 111 (OT): Rajon Rondo dominated Jeremy Lin, put up a monster line — 18 points, 20 assists, 17 rebounds — and got the Celtics a big win in one of our games of the day. Lakers 93,…

  15. Turns out Chris Bosh is pretty important this season

    Mar 5, 2012, 4:19 AM EDT

    Chris Bosh LeBron James

    Chris Bosh was once one of the best players in the league. We’re learning that this designation moves faster now. Due to the extensive nature of talent in this league, players are constantly rising and falling to the top tiers. In 2010, he was considered one of the best players in the NBA. Last year,…

  16. Video: Deron Williams drops 57 points on the Bobcats

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:10 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams scored 57 points on just 29 shots against the Bobcats Sunday— he hit 16 of his shots and was 21-for-21 from the free throw line. You can see all of them above. Well, not the free throws, but everything else. It was an impressive performance — it is more points than any player…

  17. Video: Paul Pierce hits three to send it to overtime

    Mar 4, 2012, 10:03 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Rajon Rondo‘s triple-double is the big story line, but the Celtics still would not have beaten the Knicks without 34 from Paul Pierce, including this awkward three to send the game to overtime. This is why the Celtics, even though they likely will not have home court in the first round of the playoffs, is…

  18. Kobe gets his revenge as Lakers down Heat 93-83

    Mar 4, 2012, 7:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    You couldn’t have scripted this any better. Kobe Bryant got revenge on Dwyane Wade for his hard foul in the All-Star Game a week later, with his Lakers winning 93-83 over Miami behind 33 points on 23 shots for the Black Mamba. Wade fouled out (!) scoring just 16 points on 17 field goal attempts.…

  19. Cousins shoots down the idea he wants out of Sactown

    Mar 4, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Kings, DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins is a phenomenally temperamental player. He’s not a bad kid, by any account. That gets lost in all of his infuriating on-court behavior. He tends to annoy teammates, but he’s not causing trouble on or off court outside of some lazy defense from time to time. He’s also ruining everyone as of late,…

  20. Jeremy Lin who? Rajon Rondo dominates in Celtics victory

    Mar 4, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Jeremy Lin, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks

    All-Star weekend, the Nets Deron Williams (who put up 38 on the Knicks) said all the hype around Jeremy Lin would have other teams’ point guards looking to take their frustrations out on the Knicks. Meet Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard had 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists and dominated the Knicks in…
