  1. Kenyon Martin on Boston not signing him: “It’s their fault”

    Mar 27, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Jonas Valanciunas, Alan Anderson

    With Kevin Garnett out a couple of weeks dealing with “inflammation” in his ankle, the lack of depth up front for Boston is exposed. It cost them against the Knicks Tuesday night, the fifth straight loss for Boston. They could have used someone such as New York’s late pickup Kenyon Martin. But they chose not…

  2. Wild end to regulation in Mavericks win over Clippers (VIDEO)

    Mar 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul drives on Dallas Mavericks Nowitzki during their NBA game in Dallas, Texas

    These were the final three plays of regulation from a dramatic game: First Chris Paul drives around 6’7″ Shawn Marion then elevating and going over 6’8″ Elton Brand, off the glass and in for a bucket that put the Clippers up two. Paul scored the last 10 points for the Clippers in regulation, he was…

  3. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Knicks have won five in a row

    Mar 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while imagining playing video games at the urinal…. Mavericks 109, Clippers 102 (OT): Chris Paul did his best to lift the Clippers — 33 points on 15 shots, including scoring the team’s last 10 points in regulation. But it wasn’t enough and he…

  4. Three Stars of the night: CP3, Dirk trade shots in Dallas

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Best game of the night was in Dallas, and we’ve got two from that game. Plus the hot hand that did in Boston. Third Star: Chris Paul (33 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) For much of the game Dallas took the strategy of making Chris Paul the scorer for the Clippers. This is the same…

  5. Mavericks beat Clippers, move close to playoffs… and a shave

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:01 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Matt Barnes

    One more win and the Dallas Mavericks will reach .500 — and they can shave their beards. You remember, the ones they were going to grow until they got their record even, a process that has taken so long the team starting to look like a young ZZ Top? It’s almost time for razors soon, they…

  6. Damian Lillard talks his fear of historic statues (and other stuff)

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook

    Your soon-to-be NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard was on NBC Sports Network’s The Crossover Tuesday (with Michelle Beadle and Dave Briggs, you’ll be able to tell them apart in the video) to talk about his one great weakness — a fear of historical statues. Seriously. Which is odd and interesting but difficult to use…

  7. Metta World Peace has meniscus tear in knee, out for a while

    Mar 26, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Metta World Peace

    The Lakers perimeter defense is a mess this season — Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Jodie Meeks are not good defenders. Kobe Bryant can be but is prone to gambling. The result is Dwight Howard left trying to clean up too many messes. Metta World Peace is the one guy the Lakers count on to…

  8. Creating a legacy: Comparing Miami Heat, ’72 Lakers win streaks

    Mar 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West

    It’s about legacy. When you talk about the 1972 Lakers 33-game win streak you talk about a team that had been the best in the West for the better part of a decade but had no rings to show for it, and when they put it together that year they dominated the league for a…

  9. John Wall is knocking down jumpers. Steadily.

    Mar 26, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    You’ve all heard the book on John Wall — go under the pick, play off him, he’s as quick as any guard in the league, amazing straight line speed, is a good playmaker… But he has no jump shot. Except, lately he has been knocking down his remade jumper. A lot of people noticed it…

  10. Chris Paul’s shoe closet is bigger, has more Jordans than yours

    Mar 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    chris-paul-sneaker-room

    So, I’m thinking Chris Paul is a sneakerhead. That photo you see to the right is from one of the bedrooms in his Los Angeles area home that was converted into a shoe closet. Seriously. Then again what else was he going to do with hundreds and hundreds of Jordans. Our own D.J. Foster would…

  11. Dwight Howard says he will remember elbow from David Lee. Really?

    Mar 26, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Note to Dwight Howard: The best revenge is not getting beat in a key division game. But that’s not what Howard was talking about after the Lakers loss Monday to Golden State. In the second quarter Klay Thompson drove around Steve Blake like he wasn’t there (the Lakers perimeter defense was a disaster all game),…

  12. LeBron throws down one alley-oop pass, makes another (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen, E'Twaun Moore, Norris Cole, LeBron James

    You know that whole rule about not turning the ball over against the Miami Heat because it can lead to easy buckets and spectacular dunks that fire them up? Orlando forgot about that in the second half Monday. Well, that or they are Orlando and couldn’t stop what was happening anyway. First up is poor…

  13. Suspension over, Hedo Turkoglu can return to Magic

    Mar 26, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Dallas Mavericks

    Well, this should solve everything. Hedo Turkoglu can return to the Magic Wednesday night against the Bobcats following his 20 game suspension for testing positive for methenolone, an anabolic steroid. Turkoglu said at the time of the suspension that he was given the drug back in his native Turkey last summer by a trainer, that…

  14. Draft notes from NCAA Tournament: NC State’s Brown, Leslie expected to go pro

    Mar 26, 2013, 2:53 PM EDT

    Temple v North Carolina State

    As we’ve said before, players performance in the NCAA Tournament doesn’t move the needle on their NBA draft position as much as fans tend to think. It’s one part of the mosaic that includes regular season games, interviews and workouts, among other things. But it is part of the picture and guys can help and…

  15. Magic fan uses halfcourt shot ruse to propose to girlfriend (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Image (1) new-orlando-magic-logo-thumb-250x179-13629-thumb-250x179-13630.jpg for post 4335

    Guys, let me say on behalf of every woman I’ve ever heard speak on this topic — don’t propose to your girlfriend at the game. That’s your idea of a romantic fantasy, not hers. The whole thing is almost a bad cliché at this point. That said, this one was at least pretty creative. This…

  16. Shane Battier talks Heat streak, NCAA Tourney and Coach K

    Mar 26, 2013, 1:19 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Shane Battier screams after scoring against the Memphis Grizzlies in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    Shane Battier was on the 2008 Rockets team that won 22 games in a row and is now on the Heat team that is up to 27 and is chasing history. Battier was on the Dan Patrick radio show Monday, and you can listen above to 2:41 of Florida Gulf Coast NCAA talk or fast…

  17. What does it take to beat Miami? Three keys… then pray a lot

    Mar 26, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates a basket against Detroit Pistons during NBA game in Miami

    As we watch the Heat during this streak of 27 straight wins, we keep thinking, “Sure the Heat are good, but somebody can beat them one night and end this run.” It’s almost happened a couple times and the Heat have three games this week — at Chicago, against New Orleans (who just ended Denver’s…

  18. Stephen Curry breaks Steve Nash’s ankles, drains three (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    When Stephen Curry has it going there may not be a more entertaining player to watch in the NBA. And he had it going against the Lakers Monday — 25 points, 10 assists and spearheading the Warriors win over the Lakers. Maybe the most memorable play is this one, where a little move leaves Steve…

  19. Rudy Gay doesn’t want to be shut down for season

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:08 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Rudy Gay reacts against the Golden State Warriors during the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    Yesterday we told you how Rudy Gay could get shut down for the season due to a lingering back problem, something the coaching staff and front office was discussing. Gay wants no part of that. Speaking with the Toronto Sun he said plans to keep working to get his back healthy and get back on…

  20. Kobe Bryant’s double-pump reverse dunk vs. Warriors (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 10:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    There weren’t a lot of moments the Lakers can be happy with from their loss to the Warriors — the better team won that game handily and it was not the guys in purple. The game felt like a microcosm of the entire Lakers season — their defense wasn’t good, injuries (Metta World Peace‘s knee)…
