  1. Coach tells Kris Humphries he is out of Nets rotation

    Mar 6, 2013, 3:20 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    Just in case you wondered why the Nets had trouble trading Kris Humphries and his $12 million contract at the deadline…. Humphries has played less than 15 minutes in five of the Nets last six games, and he played just two minutes against the Bulls on Tuesday. Now he’s not even going to get to…

    Happy birthday to Shaquille O’Neal. The Big Candle (at least for today). For you youngsters out there who know Shaq as the guy who argues with Charles Barkley every Thursday, or know him from his stints in Cleveland and Boston at the end of his career, you should know he’s one of the best centers…

  3. Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard both say they are playing through pain

    Mar 6, 2013, 2:13 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    The Lakers haven’t got time for the pain. Literally. They play the Hornets Wednesday night with their two stars banged up and neither can really take the night off because the Lakers need wins over teams like the Hornets if they want to catch anyone and make the playoffs. Kobe Bryant suffered a hit on…

  4. Blackhawks or Heat: Who ya got? A PHT-PBT original

    As you may have heard, the Chicago Blackhawks are on quite a roll. As you also may have heard, so too are the Miami Heat. You may also have heard some national pundits yelling at clouds discussing which streak is more impressive — Chicago going 23 games without a regulation loss, or Miami winning 15 in a…

  5. Pacers’ Granger out a week due to sore knee. Again.

    Mar 6, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Danny Granger

    UPDATE 1:17 pm: The Pacers released an update saying that Danny Granger had an MRI and it showed no new damage to his knee. Which is good. I guess. It’s the same old pain. He will be re-evaluated in a week. 12:50 pm: It wasn’t a good sign when Danny Granger’s comeback from knee surgery…

  6. Thunder fan hits half-court shot, money to pay for wife’s cancer treatments (VIDEO)

    Mar 6, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    That is a money shot. It’s always fun to see a fan drain a halfcourt shot — but that $20,000 means a lot more to Heath Kufahl than it would to just about anybody else in the building that night. From the Oklahoman. Heath’s wife, Jenni, was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in October of…

  7. Baron Davis is getting his own television show

    Jordan Brand Melo M9 Shoe Launch

    If you are reading this blog, you likely are the demographic the new Esquire Network cable channel (formerly G4) is targeting. Or at least you like to think you are. The network is going after the “upscale men” demographic. Just like the tied-in magazine. No, don’t doubt yourself, you totally qualify as upscale. That network…

  8. Phil Jackson has texted Dwight Howard about back issues

    Mar 6, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Relationships in the Lakers world are more like that of a Scottish clan than a traditional business. Around the Buss family there are rivalries, alliances and marriages (or pending ones, anyway) with all kinds of power implications. There are not a lot of clear lines of demarcation. Out of that morass everyone deals with everyone.…

  9. Byron Scott not a member of the Marreese Speights fan club

    Mar 6, 2013, 9:32 AM EDT

    Marreese Speights

    Rookie Tyler Zeller has been starting at center for the Cleveland Cavaliers, which really speaks more to their depth issues than his play. But Monday night Zeller was out and Marreese Speights got a chance got a chance to start, he hit 10-of-10 for 21 first half points when the Cavaliers were ahead of the…

  10. Serge Ibaka blocks Dwight Howard’s dunk (VIDEO)

    Mar 6, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Earl Clark, Serge Ibaka

    That is how you protect the rim. There aren’t many guys in the league who would even try to block a Dwight Howard dunk, let alone pull it off, but Serge Ibaka did Tuesday night (and got Earl Clark‘s follow up, too). The Thunder beat the Lakers and I don’t know that there is some…

  11. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Three playoff teams get wins

    Mar 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Avery Bradley ,Doc Rivers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while stopping a crime using coffee… Thunder 122, Lakers 105: The Lakers show some fight. Kobe Bryant had 30, Steve Nash had 20 and this was a five point game with six minutes to go. But the Thunder have another gear, the Lakers…

  12. Three Stars of the Night: Youth is served

    Mar 6, 2013, 2:19 AM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Darius Morris

    It’s an exciting time in the NBA when some of the league’s fresher faces are able to dominate the headlines at times and, more importantly, lead their respective teams to victory. On a light three-game slate in the Association, we had one of the younger guys playing a key role in all three contests. Third…

  13. Russell Westbrook scores 37, leads Thunder to easy win over Lakers

    Mar 6, 2013, 1:37 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook looks on during a timeout against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    The last time the Thunder played the Lakers, they turned the ball over just nine times, and Russell Westbrook struggled offensively, finishing with just 17 points on 6-22 shooting. Oklahoma City dropped that one on Jan. 27 in Los Angeles, so Tuesday night at home, the team corrected itself in those two areas — in…

  14. Matt Barnes says there’s a double standard on NBA fines/suspensions

    Mar 5, 2013, 10:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Is Matt Barnes saying anything we weren’t all thinking? When the word came down that Serge Ibaka was not getting suspended for his foul hitting Blake Griffin in the crotch the NBA twitterverse did a collective, “Really?” I don’t think Ibaka intentionally hit Griffin in a place no man wants to be hit, he was…

  15. Blake Griffin references his time traveling Kia ads in response to hit from Serge Ibaka

    Mar 5, 2013, 9:19 PM EDT

    ibaka griffin

    If you watch even a little bit of NBA basketball, there’s no way you haven’t seen one of the Kia ads featuring Blake Griffin going back in time to give his younger self various tidbits of helpful information that will prepare him for the future that Griffin is dealing with now. Griffin has always been…

  16. LeBron, Wade wonder publicly why Serge Ibaka was not suspended

    Mar 5, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James and Wade react after a play against the Boston Celtics during the first half in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    When the news was released today that Serge Ibaka would be fined $25,000 for his below-the-belt hit on Blake Griffin during the Thunder’s win over the Clippers on Sunday, it wasn’t a shock that a suspension wasn’t handed down, but it was a bit of a surprise. The league hasn’t been afraid to retroactively drop…

  17. Dwight Howard says he could have sat out season until now

    Mar 5, 2013, 7:28 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    In Chicago, where Derrick Rose is both the present and the future, he has yet to set foot on the court as he recovers from an ACL injury. Neither Rose nor the Bulls want to risk the long-term for some regular season games, even if it costs the Bulls a season. Dwight Howard went a…

  18. League downgrades J.J. Barea’s foul on Ray Allen, no fine/suspension

    Mar 5, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, J.J. Barea

    J.J. Barea may have body checked Ray Allen to the ground, but it wasn’t done in a “unnecessary and excessive” way. At least if you ask the league. Allen may feel differently. Barea’s foul on Allen was downgraded from a flagrant 2 to a flagrant 1 by the league — that means there will be…

  19. Improved Lakers get measuring stick game against Thunder

    Mar 5, 2013, 5:53 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    There was a time not so long ago when the up-and-coming Thunder were measuring their improvement against the Lakers. Now, it’s the Western Conference champion Thunder that are the measuring stick and the Lakers who want to see where they stand after a run of better play. The two face off Tuesday night in Oklahoma…

  20. Thunder’s Ibaka fined $25K, not suspended, for blow to Griffin

    Mar 5, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    When you see the play above most people who are not Thunder faithful thought Serge Ibaka punched Blake Griffin in the groin and should have been ejected. But he wasn’t, it was ruled a flagrant 1 foul, and Ibaka went on to make key plays down the stretch (including drawing Griffin’s sixth foul) that helped…
