  1. Cuban thinks Nowitzki can be elite three more years. Dirk not so sure.

    Mar 19, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Mike Scott

    It took a while after he recovered from knee surgery during training camp, but Dirk Nowizki is back to being his old self. In his last five games he’s averaged 19.6 points per game on 50.7 percent shooting and 52.6 percent from three. He’s pulling down 9.2 boards a game, too. Basically, All-Star numbers. So…

  2. Andrew Bynum gets no slack from his former high school coach

    Andrew Bynum is not exactly the most popular sports figure in Philadelphia right now. To put it kindly. The man the Sixers traded Andre Iguodala for, the guy they planned to rebuild the roster around, has not played a game for them all season. He was injured, recovery times got pushed, back, and next he…

  3. Knicks injuries pile up: Chandler out week, Thomas 2-4 weeks

    Mar 19, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler reacts after drawing a foul and scoring a basket against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Another day, another injured Knick. Or two. Before the season when we all joked about the Knicks old roster, particularly the bench, this was the concern. Old bodies break down more. The Knicks front line was already short with Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony sidelined with knee issues (although Anthony should be back this week…

  4. Celtics to sign D.J. White for the rest of the season

    Mar 19, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

    D.J. White, Doc Rivers

    The Celtics will sign D.J. White after the expiration of his second 10-day contract, according to a report from Jessica Camerato of White has appeared in four games for Boston this season, averaging 2.8 points and 1.5 rebounds in seven minutes of action per game. He did not appear in the Celtics’ close loss to…

  5. Did LeBron James deserve technical for staredown after dunk?

    Mar 19, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    LeBron James had one of the dunks of the year on Monday night (there are a lot of candidates this season), a huge throwdown over Jason Terry (the video is below). And by the way, credit to Terry for trying to make the play rather than just getting out of the way. But when you…

  6. D’Antoni says Kobe “probably” plays on Friday vs. Wizards

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Atlanta Hawks

    The Lakers caught a break with the schedule this week. Kobe Bryant was out of Monday night’s ugly Lakers loss due to a sprained ankle, but the team is off until Friday when they face Washington (in Los Angeles). Then they are off again until the next Monday. So will Kobe Bryant play Friday or…

  7. Report: Wizards expected to offer John Wall max extension

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    Has John Wall earned a max contract extension? Apparently the Wizards front office thinks he has and will offer one come July. Wall is eligible for a contract extension this summer and it was always likely the Wizards were going to offer one, the question was for how much? Wall said recently he thought he…

  8. Controversial tip-in calls cost Bulls in overtime, Thibodeau is rightfully ticked

    Mar 19, 2013, 11:13 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Noah reacts to a call by the referee during their NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets in Chicago

    To my eye — and by the NBA rulebook as I read it — there were two illegal tip-ins in the final minute of overtime between the Bulls and Nuggets Monday night. Only one was reviewed on video. Only one got overturned. The Bulls lost by one point and Tom Thibodeau has every right to…

  9. JaVale McGee with huge throwdown dunk over Noah (VIDEO)

    Mar 19, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee can throw down with the best of him (he probably should have beat Blake Griffin in the dunk contest a few years back, I will take his dunk on two baskets over the car dunk every time). Which brings us to this dunk by McGee on Monday night that is just monster. They…

  10. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Refs make Nuggets/Bulls ending interesting

    Mar 19, 2013, 8:37 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls coach Thibodeau argues with referee Mauer during their NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets in Chicago

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wishing you were as well traveled as this dog… Heat 105, Celtics 103: This felt like a playoff game — it was chippy, emotional and the crowd was into it. Jeff Green took over for the Celtics with 43 points, giving the…

  11. LeBron James knocks down game-winning jumper (VIDEO)

    Mar 19, 2013, 7:55 AM EDT

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    All night long LeBron James had been a bull, putting his head down and charging to the rim, getting his buckets at the rim. Jeff Green put up a great effort, but he can’t stop LeBron alone (nobody can). LeBron is fast, strong and you have to respect his driving ability. But then with the game…

  12. Fatigue catches up with shorthanded Lakers in blowout loss to Suns

    Mar 19, 2013, 2:41 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Robert Sacre, Metta World Peace

    PHOENIX — The Lakers haven’t won both games of a back-to-back set all season long, and thanks to Kobe Bryant missing his second straight game with an ankle injury, along with Mike D’Antoni refusing to expand his rotation beyond the seven remaining healthy players he trusts, L.A. continued that tradition as it suffered a 99-76…

  13. Three Stars of the night: Once again, LeBron tops Green

    Mar 19, 2013, 1:56 AM EDT

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    On a night with some big games and big lines — Stephen Curry had 30 points and just misses out — two of our three stars come from one game. One of the best, most entertaining games of the season. We couldn’t leave either of these guys off. Third Star: Wilson Chandler (35 points, 9…

  14. Atlanta cheerleader taken off court on stretcher after fall

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:44 AM EDT

    Mavericks Hawks Basketball

    It’s hard to tell exactly what happened from the video (below) — an Atlanta Hawks cheerleader dancing between quarters did a kick as part of the routine, he plant foot slips and she falls with her head hitting the floor. The game was delayed briefly as she had to be carted off the court with…

  15. Jeff Green, Celtics put up fight but LeBron, Heat get another win

    Mar 19, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    Celtics' Green drives to the basket past Heat's Haslem in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    This felt like a playoff game. Like last year’s Eastern Conference finals — it was chippy, there were some big highlights, and there was a very loud crowd fully into the game. It was a game that went down to the final seconds. And just like last year’s playoffs the Miami Heat beat the Boston…

  16. Avery Bradley with amazing chase down block on Cole (VIDEO)

    Mar 18, 2013, 10:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The Celtics came out against the streaking Heat on Monday night like it was a playoff game. The crowd certainly sounded like it was. Boston had guys like Jeff Green who stepped up big time. And then there was this ridiculous chase-down block by Avery Bradley. He ran down Norris Cole and makes a great…

  17. LeBron James destroys Jason Terry with the alley-oop dunk (VIDEO)

    Mar 18, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    When LeBron James is streaking down the lane on a break opportunity, and there’s only one defender back who finds himself on the wrong end of a three-on-one situation, the best thing to do is to just get out of the way. Jason Terry had a momentary lapse in judgment, however, and was absolutely demolished…

  18. Andrew Bynum to have both knees operated on, done for season

    Mar 18, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Andrew Bynum — the guy Philadelphia traded Andre Iguodala for — may never play a game in a 76ers uniform. He’s not going to this year. Multiple reports including have have confirmed that Bynum is going to undergo surgery on both knees to clean up remaining debris giving him problem. Bynum made the decision…

  19. Kevin Garnett misses shootaround, likely out vs. Heat Monday

    Mar 18, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 7:35pm EST: What was only likely earlier today is now official. From Doc Rivers: Garnett out tonight for #Celtics — gary washburn (@GwashburnGlobe) March 18, 2013 However, in a bit of a surprise it’s not Garnett’s strained abductor that is keeping him out tonight but rather his bout with the flu: Doc says the…

  20. McGrady says Rockets 22 game win streak was harder than Heat’s

    Mar 18, 2013, 7:18 PM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_mcgrady-thumb-250x185-5575.jpg for post 78

    Is this really what it’s come to: we have to debate which 22-game win streak is better than another? Or harder? There have been three in the entire history of the NBA and we have pit them against each other? I’m not sure that was Tracy McGrady’s intent, but that’s how it came off in…
