  1. Monta Ellis hits an incredible game-winner to beat the Rockets (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 11:03 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    It wasn’t the most efficient nights for Monta Ellis, but when it was all said and done, it will go down as one of his more effective. Ellis shot just 9-24 from the field, and made only two of his six attempts from three-point distance. But he finished with game-highs in points (27), assists (13),…

  2. Dwight Howard surprises fans at adidas photo shoot (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 10:19 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    It’s always cool when fans are surprised and get to meet one of the biggest stars who plays for their hometown team, and that’s what adidas pulled off in Los Angeles during a photo opportunity with Dwight Howard. Fans lined up to take pictures, but had no idea Howard would be there inside to pose…

  3. Wizards broadcaster mistakes an airball for the game-winning shot (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    Nene, Bradley Beal, Randy Wittman, Trevor Ariza, Martell Webster

    It was so close. The Wizards trailed the Pistons by a single point with just over 12 seconds remaining on Wednesday, and as the ball went to Trevor Ariza in the corner with the game clock winding down, he launched what at first glance appeared to be a game-winning three-pointer that looked like it went…

    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 kids love pizza. • Knicks coach Mike Woodson was wearing a T-shirt with…

  5. Kyrie Irving out again Wednesday, reportedly had MRI

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:46 PM EDT

    East All-Star Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers competes in the three-point contest during the NBA basketball All-Star weekend in Houston

    Kyrie Irving is sitting out the Cavaliers game against the Raptors on Wednesday, which was to be expected. When he missed Tuesday’s game we told you that this was likely. But in announcing he is out there is an interesting note from Bob Finnan of the News Herald on twitter. Cavs guard Kyrie Irving had…

  6. Metta World Peace hits Kenneth Faried with an elbow to the head, perhaps accidentally (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    This was the last play of the third quarter during the Lakers’ drubbing at the hands of the Nuggets on Monday, which might explain why there was no foul called on the play, and why it largely fell under the radar of just about everyone watching. Ben Hochman of the Denver Post noticed, however, and…

  7. Warriors’ Lee, Pacers’ Hibbert both suspended one game for scuffle

    Feb 27, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    Indiana's Roy Hibbert shoves Golden State's David Lee during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    We knew that Roy Hibbert’s suspension was coming — he threw Stephen Curry to the ground during a shoving match that broke out between the Pacers and Warriors on Tuesday night. Hibbert has been suspended one game, as has the Warriors David Lee, the league announced Wednesday. Lee will sit out Wednesday night when the…

  8. Former NBA player Shawne Williams pleads guilty on marijuana charge

    Feb 27, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    shawne williams nets arrested

    We told you back in December former NBA player Shawne Williams had been arrested on a marijuana charge in the Memphis area — a policeman caught him smoking out in his parked Porsche. There was also some “syrup” — codine heavy cough syrup — in the car. Now Williams has pled guilty but is not…

  9. Report: D.J. White finally gets clearance from China, to sign with Celtics

    Feb 27, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

    D.J. White, Taj Gibson

    The fact forward D.J. White is going to sign with the Celtics is not new news — he’s actually been hanging around the team waiting for the time to come. But the fact he finally got clearance from his Chinese team to do so is new. The letter has come and White is expected to…

  10. Roy Hibbert apologizes, says he has spoken to league already

    Feb 27, 2013, 2:58 PM EDT

    David Lee, Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert is still going to get suspended. The pushing match between Hibbert and David Lee Tuesday night escalated when Hibbert threw Stephen Curry to the ground. But the damage may be mitigated some after Hibbert apologized and spoke to the league about what had happened. Hibbert said he gave his side of the story…

  11. Metta World Peace’s words become poetry

    Feb 27, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Metta World Peace is his own kind of poetry sometimes. Interviewing him can mean stream-of-consciousness tangents mixed with shards of real insight. Or, it can just be weird. But it’s almost never like most clichéd interviews. And in a way that’s its own kind of poetry. Now Jeff Parker, a published author and also the…

  12. Jesus Shuttlesworth, er, Ray Allen may want to act again when he retires

    Feb 27, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Ray Allen Denzel Washington

    Ray Allen has already had a movie role plenty of actors in Hollywood would kill for — staring role opposite Denzel Washington in a major Spike Lee production. He was Jesus Shuttlesworth in “He Got Game.” After that Allen left acting and went on to a nice little 16-year (and counting) basketball career where he…

  13. Report: Davis out, Gordon questionable for Hornets vs. Thunder

    Feb 27, 2013, 1:37 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    This was already going to be a rough spot for New Orleans — second night of a back-to-back facing a rested Oklahoma City. That’s a game nobody expects the Hornets to win. And now things just got a whole lot harder — Anthony Davis is out with a shoulder sprain and Eric Gordon is unlikely…

  14. Rasheed Wallace needs foot surgery, out two more months

    Feb 27, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    Rasheed Wallace hasn’t set foot on a court for the Knicks since December 13, yet the entire time he has been out the Knicks have listed him as day-to-day as if that was somehow going to keep the opposition off-guard. It was silly. At least they have come clean now — Wallace needs surgery on…

  15. Tyreke Evans, what are you thinking? That was just ugly.

    Feb 27, 2013, 12:33 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    When the game is decided and there are less than 24 seconds left, there is an unwritten protocol in the NBA — guys just dribble out the clock. Tyreke Evans — his team down 12 in the second overtime and the game is decided — broke protocol and made a fool of himself on Tuesday…

  16. Mark Cuban’s sarcastic response to Derek Fisher’s leaving

    Feb 27, 2013, 11:43 AM EDT

    Derek Fisher, Eric Bledsoe

    Derek Fisher will take the court in an Oklahoma City Thunder uniform Wednesday night. Again. He started the season and played nine games for the Dallas Mavericks when he tweaked his knee. He then asked out of his contract to rehab back home with his family in Los Angeles, and the player-friendly Mavericks obliged. But…

  17. LeBron may end pre-game dunk routine after recent reaction

    Feb 27, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    The last couple days we brought you footage like the one above of LeBron James throwing down dunk contest quality dunks in the pregame (like the one above). Which has led to the general outcry of, “Why won’t LeBron do the All-Star Dunk Contest?” LeBron’s reaction might be to shut down the pregame show, he…

    Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach - Day 3

    I’ll admit it, I’m not a huge motorsports fan. The one event I do go to every year is the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach in my own back yard. This April will be my 19th consecutive year there. I’ve covered it professionally plenty but had a lot more fun the past few years…

  19. Stephen Curry breaks George Hill’s ankles, then makes Hansbrough look bad (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 9:12 AM EDT

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There was more to this game than a fight. The Pacers were the better team but Stephen Curry kept the Warriors in it with 38 points and plays like the ones you see above. First he just broke the ankles of George Hill (who made the smart play but ruined the highlight with the foul).…

  20. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Kings take Heat two overtimes

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    LeBron James,

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while scrolling through the Florida Man twitter feed…. Heat 141, Kings 129 (2OT): What looked like a blowout on paper ended up being the best game of the night. The Kings may deny it was a moral victory for them, but it was.…
