  1. Carmelo Anthony day-to-day with groin injury

    Mar 27, 2012, 8:13 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony comes down after stuffing ball against Toronto Raptors in NBA game in New York

    The Knicks were without Amare Stoudemire (out indefinitely with bulging disc in back) and Jeremy Lin (day-to-day with sore right knee), which meant even more of the scoring load fell to Carmelo Anthony Monday. He did his part, scoring a game-high 28 and leading the Knicks to a crucial win. But he also injured his…

  2. Video: Rodney Stuckey drains game winner for Pistons

    Mar 27, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Kevin Seraphin, Jan Vesely, Rodney Stuckey

    We can debate how the Wizards defended this if you want, but the fact is Rodney Stuckey played it right and drained the shot that gave the Pistons a win in Washington after an impressive comeback. The Wizards blew a double-digit lead in this game, just like they have in their last three losses. Detroit……

  3. It’s not pretty, but Knicks solidify playoff standing with win

    Mar 26, 2012, 11:11 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It looked like a game where both teams were battling for the right to be the eight seed — the winning team shot 35.1 percent and had 23 turnovers. Tom Thibodeau is not reviewing this tape and getting nervous. But a gritty win counts the same as any other kind and the Knicks outhustled the…

  4. Hamilton close to returning for Bulls; Rose not so much

    Mar 26, 2012, 9:07 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls continue to do their best imitation of the NHL’s Blackhawks during the playoffs, not really telling anybody what is going on with injuries to Richard Hamilton and Derrick Rose, but some things are starting to leak out. Hamilton could be back by the next game, but Rose seems farther off — even…

  5. Duke makes official what we all knew: Austin Rivers going pro

    Mar 26, 2012, 7:58 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Lehigh v Duke

    This was about as big a secret as who Michele Obama is going to vote for in the fall, but now it is official. Duke point guard Austin Rivers is leaving the school to enter the NBA draft, the University announced Monday. Like we said, no shock as it had been reported last week. On…

  6. Knicks’ Stoudemire out indefinitely with bulging disc in back

    Mar 26, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    New York is going to have to make some if not all of its stretch run — which is really a fight just to make the playoffs — without Amare Stoudemire. Stoudemire is out indefinitely with a bulging disc in his back, the team announced Monday. Stoudemire injured it against the Pistons Saturday and it…

  7. Bogut says you’re “uneducated” if you think he’s injury prone

    Mar 26, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut is right. He’s also not answering the question I and others are asking about the trade that sent him from Milwaukee to the Bay Area essentially for Monta Ellis. In a radio interview with 95.7 The Game in San Francisco, Bogut was asked about his injury history — he is currently out with…

  8. Kobe Bryant just dropped $329,000 on a new Ferrari

    Mar 26, 2012, 5:14 PM EDT

    Italy Basketball Bryant Bologna

    There are times the helicopter is not there to take Kobe from Newport Beach to Los Angeles for Lakers games. There are times he has to head up the 405 and 110 freeways just like the rest of us schlubs. Well, not exactly like the rest of us shlubs — Kobe can now do it…

  9. Rockets sign Earl Boykins to 10-day contract

    Mar 26, 2012, 4:28 PM EDT

    BOYKINS_EARL

    The Rockets need all the backcourt help they can get right now. Kyle Lowry is out (and is not even being evaluated again until April 7 and he could be out for the season), Kevin Martin has had shoulder issues and Kevin McHale has not yet figured out how to clone Goran Dragic. So the…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  11. Amare Stoudemire, Jeremy Lin may be out for Knicks Monday

    Mar 26, 2012, 2:52 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    Knicks fans, this should make you a little nervous — Amare Stoudemire is having back issues late in the season. That’s what happened last year and if history repeats itself it will be very difficult for the Knicks to get out of the first round. Actually, they have to get into the playoffs first and…

  12. Video: Who has the best floater in the NBA?

    Mar 26, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    When you talk about the best floaters in the game, you are talking about the best point guards in the league — Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul all get mentions in this video. And deservedly so. That said, Tony Parker didn’t get in this video from NBA.com and he should, he’s been doing…

  13. Charles Barkley says Kentucky could beat Toronto, Charlotte

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    This happens every year right before the Final Four. Some loudmouth says that the best college team in the land could beat the worst NBA team. This year’s loudmouth is Charles Barkley. Guess we shouldn’t be shocked by that. Here is what he said, via our sister (brother?) blog CollgeBasketballTalk, which you should be reading…

  14. LeBron, Wade honor Trayvon Martin on their shoes

    Mar 26, 2012, 12:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade wears "We Want Justice" on his shoe in tribute to slain 17-year-old-Trayvon Martin during their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Detroit

    The Miami Heat have leapt headlong into the Trayvon Martin situation, with statements from players and photos from the team. The latest step along those lines came with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade writing “RIP Trayvon Martin” on their shoes for games against Detroit and Oklahoma City. Wade also wrote “We Want Justice” on his.…

  15. Does Phil Jackson want to coach again? Even Jeanie Buss doesn’t know.

    Mar 26, 2012, 11:34 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    The New York Knicks have not contacted Phil Jackson about coaching them yet. At least not formally (anything might have happened through back channels). But at some point they will offer the job to him, the question is will he take it? He was burned out after his second stint with the Lakers and talked…

    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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • The father of Trayvon Martin thanked the Miami Heat for their support. •…

  17. How Kevin Durant almost played for North Carolina

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    kevin durant texas

    Kevin Durant in Carolina blue rather than Texas burnt orange? I have trouble picturing it, but it almost happened, apparently. The New York Post’s Peter Vecsey had a story Sunday primarily about how Kevin Love and Kevin Durant are good friends going way back to seventh grade. How Durant has been over to Love’s family…

  18. Mickael Pietrus out indefinately with concussion after fall

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:20 AM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    Friday night it looked scary for Mickael Pietrus — after an awkward fall in Philadelphia where his neck snapped a little (but his head never hit the floor) he had to be taken off the court on a stretcher. He was released from the hospital but did not travel with the team back to Boston.…

  19. Yes, Kobe Bryant sat a key stretch of fourth quarter. So?

    Mar 26, 2012, 9:35 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    With 5:45 left in Sunday night’s game and the Lakers down 14 points, coach Mike Brown sat Kobe Bryant Sunday night. He sat for the next 3:53 of a game where the Lakers were within striking distance of the Grizzlies (but never closed the gap and lost 102-93. This has caused consternation among Lakers fans…

  20. Video: Dwyane Wade drains three-quarter court shot at buzzer

    Mar 26, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    It was about the only thing the Heat seemed to do right in the second half. To beat the buzzer at the end of the third quarter Sunday night, Dwyane Wade launched a three-quarter court shot. And drained it. The Thunder still ran away with the game, but the shot is worth seeing so we’re…
