  1. Duncan still out, Popovich back for Spurs Wednesday

    Jan 30, 2013, 1:49 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    After missing a couple games due to illness, Gregg Popovich will be back coaching the San Antonio Spurs when they host the Bobcats Wednesday night. But he will not have Tim Duncan in the lineup, tweets Mike Monroe of the Express-News. This will be Duncan’s fourth consecutive game missed due to a sore left knee.…

  2. Paul Pierce: “I want to retire a Celtic”

    Jan 30, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Since Rajon Rondo went down with an ACL injury, I had not been alone in calling for the Celtics to start making big changes — it’s time to transition to the next phase of the Celtics. But saying that and actually doing something like trading Paul Pierce is something else entirely. He is a 14-year…

  3. Pau Gasol didn’t like being benched in fourth. Again.

    Jan 30, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    In the end, Mike D’Antoni went with the hot hand. That’s not how he explained it, after the game. D’Antoni said Earl Clark played the entire fourth quarter while Pau Gasol sat because the Hornets went small and he had to match it. (Note to D’Antoni: You know, you can go big and make them…

  4. Wizards may sit Bradley Beal to heal injured wrist

    Jan 30, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal

    Six games ago, back on Jan. 18, Washington’s Bradley Beal fell and in breaking his fall injured his right wrist. It hasn’t been bad enough to keep him out, but it’s had an impact. In his last five games the young sharpshooter has hit just 20 percent of his threes, seen his minutes drop, and…

  5. Iverson wants to someday come back as Sixers consultant

    Jan 30, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Six

    Allen Iverson is not retired from the NBA. Not officially, not in his mind. He wants another shot. NBA GMs want to see some evidence he still has enough game and will not be a disruption in the locker room, but Iverson has turned down the chance to play in China (he played exhibitions but…

  6. Mavericks’ Kaman suffers concussion, out indefinitely

    Jan 30, 2013, 10:25 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Dallas Mavericks

    For the next few games at least, the Dallas Mavericks are going to have to figure out how to get by without Chris Kaman — which shouldn’t be too bad, they have been 5.2 points better per 48 minutes when he sits this season than when he plays. Kaman suffered a concussion and is out…

  7. The Extra Pass: Drafting the Rookie-Sophomore Game

    Jan 30, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, Kurt Helin and I draft our Rookie-Sophomore teams. We love the idea of the Rookie-Sophomore game at All-Star Weekend being drafted by Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal. We love it so…

  8. Wild shootout to end Blazers win over Mavericks (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2013, 8:31 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    What an ending in the Rose Garden. Nicolas Batum with the three to tie it (that capped off a late 7-0 Portland run). Dirk Nowitzki with a contested three for Dallas off Shawn Marion‘s rainbow pass. LaMarcus Aldridge ties it with his first three of the season. Then the Aldridge game winner, a beautiful turnaround,…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Portland, Dallas end in a shootout

    Jan 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while spending way too much time on the Stacy King soundboard…. Lakers 111, Hornets 106: The renaissance of the Lakers offense continues — Kobe Bryant had 11 assists, Dwight Howard rolled to the rim for 24 and the Lakers played beautiful basketball. But…

  10. It’s not always pretty, but Lakers pick up third straight win

    Jan 30, 2013, 2:31 AM EDT

    BKN--HORNETS-LAKERS

    There were stretches in this game where we finally started to see the Lakers we expected to see when this team was put together… well, not exactly what we expected to see because nobody thought Kobe Bryant the facilitator and Steve Nash working off the ball was what would work best. But it does. Kobe…

  11. Three Stars of the Night: Turn It Around

    Jan 30, 2013, 1:52 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    How about those road Warriors? They didn’t have Stephen Curry, Andrew Bogut, Carl Landry, or Harrison Barnes…and they still shot 53 percent in a 108-95 victory in Cleveland. A lot of that credit goes to Klay Thompson, who just missed the cut despite dropping a career-high 32 points. That’s how good our Three Stars were tonight, so let’s…

  12. Klay Thompson goes off for career-high 32 points (VIDEO)

    Jan 29, 2013, 11:19 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving

    Klay Thompson has as pretty a shot as you are going to find — quick release, smooth, deadly. With Stephen Curry, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut all out for Golden State Tuesday, Thompson needed to crank it up — and he did. To the tune of a career-high 32 points and Golden State got a…

  13. Rajon Rondo to get second opinion on knee, may talk with Adrian Peterson

    Jan 29, 2013, 10:14 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    There are two people that right now are the gold standard when it comes to knees and ACL recovery. One is Dr. James Andrews, the renowned surgeon who everyone wants to do their knee repair. The other is Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the poster child for bouncing back from an ACL after he came…

  14. Report: Heat to sign Jarvis Varnado for remainder of season

    Jan 29, 2013, 8:38 PM EDT

    Jarvis Varnado

    Jarvis Varnado has barely touched the court for the Heat — 12 minutes total in two games during his two 10-day contracts with the team. But they must like what they are seeing in practice from the former Mississippi State forward — they are going to sign him for the rest of the season, tweets…

  15. Keyon Dooling would “definitely” consider comeback if Boston wants him

    Jan 29, 2013, 7:04 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Dooling celebrates a teammate's basket against the Miami Heat during Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    We’re all out here planning elaborate overhauls of the Celtics roster, while Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge are preaching patience and no sudden moves. But they are going to have to do something to bolster the roster, maybe not a grand move but something. They need some depth they can count on because the depth…

  16. UPDATED: Stephen Curry, Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes out for Warriors Tuesday

    Jan 29, 2013, 5:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry bites a mouth piece during the first quarter of his NBA basketball game against Los Angeles Lakers in Oakland

    UPDATE 5:49 pm: Warriors coach Mark Jackson met with the media and said that Stephen Curry and, as expected, Andrew Bogut were out for Golden State on Tuesday in Cleveland, tweets Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio. Harrison Barnes, who had a mild calf tweak, also is out, Jackson said. That’s a lot of bodies…

  17. Once again, Mario Chalmers says he’s a top 10 point guard. Again world chuckles.

    Jan 29, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    You want your players to be confident. To believe in themselves and their abilities. You can’t play in the NBA without a little bit of swagger. Mario Chalmers has enough swagger for 10 NBA players. Once again on Tuesday he reiterated that he thinks he is a Top 10 NBA point guard. From Chris Tomasson…

    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 Bobby Flay loves a chipotle pepper. • Finally, something NBA related you can…

  19. Andray Blatche takes an overhand pass to the face (VIDEO)

    Jan 29, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Ouch. Orlando’s Kyle O’Quinn was trying to save the ball going out of bounds and while this was unintentional it was pretty brutal. Fortunately Andray Blatche wasn’t actually hurt. Thanks to SLAM and the twitter account of CJ Fogler.

  20. No shoulder surgery for Dwight Howard, he will play through pain

    Jan 29, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard’s shoulder hurts. You saw it against Memphis last week — Howard ran shoulder first into a Rudy Gay screen and had to leave the game. He missed three games earlier in the month with what is described as a torn labrum (the cartilage that cushions and allows a wide range of movement for…
