  1. Three Stars of the Night: Corey Brewer more exciting than NCAAs

    Mar 22, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' Brewer celebrates beating the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Denver, Colorado

    Only three games — and not the high-quality games we are used to on the Thursday night showcase stage due to the NCAA Tournament — so we’ve got one guy from each team that notched a victory. Third Star: Tyreke Evans (21 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds) The Kings won this game with a 13-2…

  2. Nuggets run win streak to 14 straight games with late comeback over Sixers

    Mar 22, 2013, 12:56 AM EDT

    Corey Brewer

    This was the type of game that shows how win streaks usually come to an end. The heavily-favored team comes out with a lack of energy, the underdogs pounce early, and the home team lets its opponent hang around longer than it should, and is unable to put it together in time to keep the…

  3. Rick Adelman may quit as Timberwolves coach if wife’s health issues persist

    Mar 21, 2013, 11:47 PM EDT

    Rick Adelman

    Rick Adelman is one of the best veteran head coaches in the NBA, and is currently presiding over a young and promising Minnesota Timberwolves squad that will be extremely compelling once all of its players are at full strength. Injuries to Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, and many others in Minnesota have essentially made this a…

  4. Jerry West says Lakers would ‘have a chance against anyone’ in the playoffs

    Mar 21, 2013, 10:08 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Statue Unveiling At STAPLES Center

    Now that the Lakers making the playoffs seems much more like an eventuality than a faint possibility, it’s only natural that the pundits will begin lining up to assess the team’s chances once the postseason begins. Jerry West was first in line apparently, and said that he believes the Lakers would be a dangerous playoff…

  5. New potential owner for Kings takes lead in Sacramento group

    Mar 21, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Clippers Kings Basketball

    A few weeks back, David Stern was clear in saying that the Sacramento group had to sweeten its offer to buy the Kings if they wanted to stay in contention with the Seattle bid. It’s a negotiation, that statement didn’t catch the leaders in Sacramento off guard. The question was what were they going to…

  6. PBT Extra: Talking Heat streak, Gasol’s return to Lakers

    Mar 21, 2013, 6:49 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat keep winning. They aren’t making it easy on themselves… or is it that other teams are gearing up and giving the Heat their best punch every night? Kay Adams and I bat the Heat streak around a little, and what the Heat’s streak will mean to them in terms of legacy. Finally,…

  7. Chris Paul, Tyreke Evans get flopping warnings from league

    Mar 21, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Since the calender turned to 2013, the NBA had issued only four flopping warnings, something pointed out by Beckley Mason at TrueHoop. You’d like to say that the league early season push to reform behavior had an impact on the incidents of flopping (I’m sure it did have some), but often when the league pushes…

  8. Tony Parker scrimmages in practice, could be in lineup Friday

    Mar 21, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

    Tony Parker

    When Tony Parker sprained his ankle he was supposed to be out for a month (although the buzz was always it could be shorter than that). How about 20 days? Parker could be back in the Spurs lineup Friday night against the Jazz, tweets Jeff McDonald of the Express News. Spurs finishing up practice with…

  9. Derrick Rose on his return date: “Nobody knows but God”

    Mar 21, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Another day, another Derrick Rose update that is basically no update. Rose is “highly unlikely” to play Thursday night against Portland, coach Tom Thibodeau said after shootaround. Which is the nice way of saying “You’d have a better shot hitting on Kate Upton.” Then Rose spoke to the media, speaking openly for five minutes, and…

  10. Doc Rivers blames basketball gods for loss to Hornets

    Mar 21, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Anthony Davis’ tip-in with 0.3 seconds left gave the Hornets an 87-86 win over the Celtics last night. You might think the play was a combination of Davis’ length, leaping ability and timing. According to Boston coach Doc Rivers, you’d be wrong. He says Davis’ basket was preordained by “the basketball gods,” who didn’t like…

  11. Lionel Hollins is not watching NCAA Tournament with you

    Mar 21, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins

    Every year the NCAA Tournament brings out the NBA snobbery of some people — they pick apart the flaws and execution errors of the college teams, laugh at the mockery that is the “amateur” system the NCAA enforces, and generally act above it all. Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins is one of those guys. He’s not…

  12. Kobe Bryant tells his teammates not to expect passes from him unless they demand the ball

    Mar 21, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Nick Collison

    What do Kobe Bryant and Gilbert Arenas have in common? According to Antawn Jamison, both will shoot when triple-teamed. The difference between Kobe and Arenas? According to Jamison, Bryant will pass if yelled at and Arenas will shoot regardless. “Kobe will tell you, he’s like, ‘Look, you guys as my teammates, yell at me. Let…

  13. Dirk Nowitzki’s lack of shots becoming extreme

    Mar 21, 2013, 1:19 PM EDT

    Mavericks' Nowitzki reacts after Thunder's Sefolosha hit a basket to give the Thunder a four point lead in the the second half of their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    Mike James has taken more shots than Dirk Nowitzki in two of the Dallas Mavericks’ last three games, both losses. That’s 37-year-old Mikes James, who hasn’t averaged nine points per game in the last six years. Nowitzki has averaged more than 16 points per game in each of the last 14 years. But Nowitzki has…

  14. Jordan says off-season changes likely coming to Bobcats

    Mar 21, 2013, 12:52 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    It goes without saying that when your team is 16-52, and that’s an improvement over the season before, changes need to be made. Welcome to the world of Charlotte Bobcats fans. Sitting with a group of season ticket holders in Charlotte Wednesday night, Bobcats owner Michael Jordan said everything would be re-evaluated and changes likely…

  15. Andrew Bynum has his knee surgeries. So that’s done.

    Mar 21, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Andrew Bynum’s knees were not right all season, he will not play one minute of one game. So how much are teams willing to gamble that this solved the problem? First things first, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports Radio tweets that Bynum’s knee surgery to clean up everything following his previous surgery…

  16. Royce White leaving D-League team, will be in Houston but not on Rockets

    Mar 21, 2013, 11:31 AM EDT

    Royce White

    The saga of Royce White likely ends for this season this way — him on a practice floor in Houston working out, not on the Rockets active roster, not on any roster. White had been playing with the Rio Grand Valley Vipers of the D-League and after a slow start had been putting up decent…

  17. Andre Drummond remains out, but did go through full practice

    Mar 21, 2013, 10:37 AM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    UPDATE 3:01 pm: Just to make me look bad, Andre Drummond went through a full practice on Thursday, tweets Keith Langlois of He described Drummond as “upbeat.” There is officially still no timetable for his return.

  18. Mavericks Beaubois has hand surgery, likely done for season

    Mar 21, 2013, 10:05 AM EDT

    Rodrigue Beaubois

    The injury bug that has plagued Roddy Beaubois career has not gone away.

The odds of him returning this season are “extremely slim” according to the report. After…

  19. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Night of wild finishes all over NBA map

    Mar 21, 2013, 9:19 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Kevin Durant

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while reading the oral history of Ace of Bass’ one hit…. Heat 98, Cavaliers 95: Crazy game. I mean certifiable, off its meds kind of game. Starting with a 40-minute delay at the start to fix a coolant leak in the scoreboard that…

  20. Blake Griffin throws alley-oop to DeAndre Jordan. Twice. (VIDEO)

    Mar 21, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan

    Wednesday night was the kind of game for the Clippers where they are at their Lob City best — when they are destroying lesser competition. Blake Griffin‘s handles have gotten a lot better this season — he didn’t come into the league as a guy who could get the ball and lead the break (or…
