  1. Blazers expected to part ways with J.J. Hickson this summer

    Apr 10, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Al Horford

    J.J. Hickson made a leap this year and with it made a statement — he is a quality NBA big man. He’s averaged 12.9 points a game on 56.7 percent shooting with 10 rebounds a game on top of that. He’s got a PER of 19.9. The problem is, the Blazers use him as a…

  2. What Wednesday’s games mean: Heat can lock up best record; Lakers need win

    Apr 10, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    There is one week of NBA regular-season basketball left — next Wednesday, April 17 is the final day of games, then we get to focus on the playoffs. Right now teams are jockeying for playoff position — or in the case of the Lakers and Jazz a spot in the playoffs. Which means a lot…

  3. Brandon Roy hopes to play in one more game this season

    Apr 10, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    One more game. One more time on the court. Brandon Roy — the former All-Star whose career has fallen apart because of knee issues — played the first five games of the season for the Timberwolves in a comeback attempt, but those troublesome knees have had him sidelined ever since. Now he wants back on…

  4. Another report Rick Adelman may retire at end of season

    Apr 10, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    Rick Adelman, Mary Kay Adelman

    When Rick Adelman reached the milestone of 1,000 wins as an NBA coach recently, his wife, Mary Kay, was there by his side on the court as he spoke. He wanted her there, part of the celebration because she had sacrificed for it, too. But she is also battling health issues — remember Adelman took…

  5. Judge rules DeJuan Blair must pay $53K to jeweler, Spurs ‘uncooperative’ in lawsuit

    Apr 10, 2013, 12:21 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair

    It’s always a little strange to see a professional athlete sued by a business for some amount of money that is small in relation to that player’s salary. It’s even stranger when that athlete plays for the San Antonio Spurs, a franchise that has a reputation of employing players that typically stay away from this…

  6. Russell Westbrook elevates, throws down on Jazz (VIDEO)

    Apr 10, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook (0) reacts to a fan as he exits the arena after the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    You really need to cut off Russell Westbrook‘s path to the basket. Or this happens. Westbrook went left off a high pick in the first quarter of the Thunder’s win Tuesday, turned the corner, saw nobody in his way and attacked the rim. He does that really, really well. The Jazz bigs were slow with…

  7. Utah’s Enes Kanter has season-ending shoulder surgery

    Apr 10, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    Utah’s Enes Kanter has been dealing with a dislocated left shoulder. As anyone who has had a dislocated shoulder can tell you, after you dislocate it once it is more susceptible to happening again. And again. And… you get the idea. So Kanter will be out the rest of the season as he will have…

  8. Report: Indiana’s Cody Zeller to declare for NBA draft

    Apr 10, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Cody Zeller

    This is another case where the decision shouldn’t be a surprise to even the most diehard fan in Bloomington. Indiana’s star center Cody Zeller will declare for the NBA draft at a press conference Wednesday afternoon, reports Bob Kravitz of the Indy Star. DraftExpress currently has Zeller going No. 6 in the upcoming draft. He…

  9. Raptors Valanciunas hurts neck, taken to hospital after game

    Apr 10, 2013, 10:12 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Chicago Bulls

    In recent weeks, the Raptors have seen a lot of progress out of young center Jonas Valanciunas — he came into this season in Toronto with a lot of hype but proved to be a work in progress. But last month he was the Eastern Conference Rookie of the month with a double-double in 12…

  10. Metta World Peace on why he came back: “I’m too sexy for my cat”

    Apr 10, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    Metta World Peace poses for a photo during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    “I’m too sexy for my cat. My cat. I’m just too sexy for my cat. If I wasn’t as sexy for my cat, I probably wouldn’t have came back. I’m so sexy, I came back.” That is vintage Metta World Peace. Playing off some Right Said Fred. Interviewing him can be a complete non sequitur.…

  11. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Knicks’ streak reaches 13

    Apr 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony celebrates with teammates during their NBA basketball game against the Washington Wizards in Manhattan, New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what to do with five tons of Nutella… Lakers 104, Hornets 96 ; & Thunder 90, Jazz 80: We combine these two because together they put the Lakers in as the eight seed in the West and in control of their…

  12. Kobe lifts Lakers to win, back into playoff picture (with help of Utah loss)

    Apr 10, 2013, 2:43 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    To say the Lakers had to beat the Hornets on Tuesday is to state the obvious — they need to win just about every game from here on out to get the eight seed and make the playoffs. But the one they really have to have now is Wednesday night in Portland. The Lakers stumbled…

  13. Three Stars of the Night: Small forward edition

    Apr 10, 2013, 2:17 AM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony dribbles down the court past Washington Wizards guard Martell Webster in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Manhattan, New York

    One of these players won’t make the All-NBA first team. Third Star: Kevin Durant (21 points, 12 rebounds, 9 assists, 3 steals) Durant just missed his fourth tripe-double, but he still had half of Oklahoma City’s assists in a win over the Jazz. Maybe Durant shouldn’t have passed so much. He shot 60 percent (6-of-10)…

  14. Rockets win, make playoffs on Harden three, ridiculous Jermaine O’Neal goaltend (VIDEO)

    Apr 10, 2013, 12:50 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    This may be the most ridiculous ending to a game this season. Not what the Rockets did — with seven seconds left in a 98-98 game they went to the old “isolate your best player out high” and James Harden dribbled it out then pulled up for a three. Which was short and bounced high.…

  15. LeBron passes off backboard to himself for dunk (VIDEO)

    Apr 9, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Dunleavy looks in as Miami Heat's James drives around Bucks' Moute in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    LeBron James got the ball on this fast break and was thinking pass — but Monta Ellis plays it well and steps in to take the pass away. Of course, that means LeBron is going to take the shot. So he passes it to himself off the backboard to himself for the one-hand slam. The…

  16. Fans tweets to count toward MVP voting

    Apr 9, 2013, 8:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James trots back after scoring a basket against the Philadelphia 76ers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    LeBron James is going to win his fourth MVP going away. It’s a sure thing. But if you think we in the media are clearly missing how great Tyler Hansbrough has been this season and think there should be a vote for him, now you can do it yourself on twitter. The NBA is taking…

  17. LeBron doesn’t want Tuesday’s Heat/Bucks match called playoff preview

    Apr 9, 2013, 7:18 PM EDT

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

    It’s a fact that goes against your first instinct but nonetheless has proven true over the years — regular season NBA games are not good predictors of postseason series. Every year a team that dominates a team during the regular season gets whitewashed in the playoffs. The intensity level is different, games are slower paced,…

  18. Ty Lawson practices, could play Wednesday against Spurs

    Apr 9, 2013, 5:53 PM EDT

    Tony Parker,Danny Green, Ty Lawson

    The Nuggets are going to miss Danilo Gallinari in the playoffs, but Wilson Chandler and Corey Brewer can fill in some of his production and points. But they aren’t going anywhere in the postseason without Ty Lawson. Andre Miller is a great point guard off the bench but Lawson is the engine that makes the…

    Apr 9, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT

    Entertainers Jay-Z and Beyonce watch Brooklyn Nets play New York Knicks in NBA game in New York

    Jay-Z has 99 problems but soon the Nets won’t be one. It was rumored a few weeks ago that athletes from baseball and football — Robinson Cano of the Yankees, for one — were about to jump agents to Roc Nation Sports, a Jay-Z headed representation agency that is partnered with powerhouse Creative Artists Agency.…

  20. In surprise to nobody, Kansas’ Ben McLemore declares for draft

    Apr 9, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Kansas Jayhawks McLemore reacts after a dunk against the Michigan Wolverines during the second half in their South Regional NCAA men's basketball game in Arlington

    Maybe there were a few Kansas Jayhawk diehards holding out hope, but this was a given. Ben McLemore announced Tuesday he is leaving Kansas for the NBA Draft, reports the Kansas City Star. There he will likely be a top 3 pick, which means he is making the right call. In a draft where there…
