    Mar 22, 2013, 5:58 PM EDT


    The Wizards are playing out the string — but playing it out pretty well. They are 9-7 since the All-Star break and have won four of five heading into Los Angeles to face the Lakers Friday. That’s what happens when you get your two key players — John Wall and Nene — back on the…

    I’m late to the “Game of Thrones” phenomenon, but am trying to burn through old episodes in time to get caught up for the new season. Politics, wars, sex and dragons — what more can you want in a show? The Knicks Carmelo Anthony taped a promo for the new season where he gets to…

    Mar 22, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Nate Robinson goes to the basket between Portland Trail Blazers' J.J. Hickson and LaMarcus Aldridge during their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    Nate Robinson can still get up and throw it down. I mean, we knew he could dunk — he won the Dunk Contest crown a couple times — but he’s getting older and he’s never been as big an in-game dunker. But he threw a big one down Thursday in the fourth quarter against Portland.…

    Philadelphia was up 5 with :14 seconds left in the game — they were going to end the Nuggets 13-game winning streak and pick up a rare quality win. Until Corey Brewer hit a three. Then Evan Turner missed both free throws for Philly. Then Damien Wilkins (who had a really good game with 24…

    UCLA forward Shabazz Muhammad is the subject of an article by Ken Bensinger of the Los Angeles Times that has the college-basketball world buzzing, and the piece also raises several questions that will affect Muhammad’s NBA Draft stock.

    Mark Cuban, Deron Williams w

    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was mostly mum about Deron Williams, who re-signed with the Nets rather than choosing his hometown Mavericks this summer, before the teams played Wednesday. But not everyone stayed quiet. Associated Press: Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo said he didn’t know if Williams was a little extra motivated against the team he…

    Mar 22, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 7

    Von Wafer will bring a team someone not afraid to shoot the ball. And some of those shots will go in (he’s a career 42 percent shooter who hit 45.2 percent overall and 35.9 percent from three last season in Orlando). Now if you want defense or smart play or discipline, well… Von Wafer brings…

  11. Pacers likely without David West all weekend due to back

    Mar 22, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT

    David West

    The Pacers have enough trouble scoring points (20th ranked offense), so this is bad news. David West, the Pacers second leading scorer on the season at 17.3 points per game, likely will be out this weekend for two games due to a bad back, tweets Mike Wells of the Indy Star. That would be Friday…

    Thaddeus Young, Kenneth Faried

    There were a lot of highlights out of the Nuggets’ dramatic comeback on Thursday night, most centered around the comeback itself. But there were others. Like when Kenneth Faried chased down Thaddeus Young and denied a dunk that most players just would have surrendered. Then there is Arnett Moultrie trying to spin from the post…

    Mar 22, 2013, 10:08 AM EDT

    New York Knicks guard Kidd looks down during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Jason Kidd turns 40 on Saturday. Carmelo Anthony nicknamed him “middle age.” The 18-year veteran and future Hall of Famer is coming off the bench for the Knicks but still plays a key role — 27 minutes a game, spacing the floor and giving them 6.6 points and some savvy, veteran play. The Knicks play…

    Mar 22, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    Damien Wilkins, Andre Iguodala, Corey Brewer

    The Nuggets know drama. Down 7 points inside two minutes and 5 points with :14 left the Nuggets found a way to pull it out and extend the streak to 14. They did it with the three ball and key free throws. They also did it because the 76ers helped them out. A lot. But…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching Harvard bust your bracket.

    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…

  17. 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…

    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.
