  1. Referee caught telling D’Antoni, Popovich he is stalling for television (VIDEO)

    Jan 10, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    television

    Veteran referee Billy Kennedy clearly didn’t know he had a hot mic… which makes this all the better. Just let it serve as another reminder that television rules everything. EVERYTHING. Seconds after Kennedy said this the broadcast went to a commercial, but not until Mike Breen has a good “you’re not fooling anybody” moment on…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas makes the Clippers work for it

    Jan 10, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while listening to an ice record… Spurs 108, Lakers 105: The Lakers went on a 13-2 run in the fourth quarter to make this game interesting down the stretch, but in the end the result was the fifth straight Los…

  3. Three Stars of the Night: Manimal Style

    There are only two food items on the menu at the west coast burger chain In and Out — burgers and fries — but there’s something called “Animal Style” where they put…heck, I don’t even know what they do, but it’s messy and it involves mustard-grilled something or other and it’s just all over the…

  4. Spurs avoid total meltdown, hand Lakers their 5th straight loss

    Jan 10, 2013, 12:27 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili

    In what’s been a familiar site lately, the Lakers lost a game on Wednesday night, this time to the Spurs 108-105. The loss drops them to 15-20 on the season and represents another shovel of dirt on their playoff chances in what’s been their most disappointing season…maybe ever. The win gave the Spurs their 15th…

  5. Uncle Jeff throws down on the Suns, Uncle Drew beats the buzzer against Atlanta (VIDEO)

    Jeff Green

    Being an uncle is pretty cool. You get to buy your nieces and nephews annoyingly loud toys to passive-aggressively torture your brother or sister. You get to give the kids lots of candy and ice cream and it automatically makes you cool. It’s a pretty easy gig. Dunking on a 7-footer in the NBA, or beating…

  6. Report: Spurs continue to shop DeJuan Blair

    BLAIR_DeJUAN

    With just about every NBA General Manager in the same gym at the D-League showcase in Idaho, you’re going to see a lot of trade talk start to heat up. However, when it comes to the San Antonio Spurs and DeJuan Blair, that heat is more like an enduring flame than a spark. Basically, the…

  7. Kings to Seattle: It’s not done. But don’t be shocked if it is soon.

    Jan 9, 2013, 8:34 PM EDT

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    Things can change. There was already what was supposed to be a final game in Sacramento that turned out to not be so final. And anyone who doesn’t think the Maloofs can change their mind at the last minute didn’t watch the arena negotiations in Sacramento a year ago. But the Maloof family selling the…

  8. John Wall goes through full practice, looks good for Saturday

    Jan 9, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Washington Wizards

    It’s not going to be official until he steps on the court, but it looks more and more like he will go this Saturday for his first game this season. Owner Ted Leonsis hinted at as much the other day. Wall himself sounded pretty eager after going through his first full practice with the team…

  9. Carmelo suspended one game for trying to confront Garnett

    Jan 9, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    Nothing really happened. But that was more than the league wanted to happen. So the NBA league office has suspended the Knicks Carmelo Anthony one game for trying to confront the Celtics Kevin Garnett after the game between their teams Monday night. Anthony and Garnett were often matched up on the court, particularly with KG…

  10. Doctors tell Woodson to reduce Stoudemire’s minutes

    Jan 9, 2013, 5:18 PM EDT

    350x

    Amar’e Stoudemire played 28 minutes Monday night against the Celtics. That caused some soreness, so doctors have ordered Mike Woodson to cut back the Stoudemire’s minutes starting Thursday against the Pacers, reports ESPNNewYork.com. “He was probably a little sore and that’s probably the reason for it. So I’ve got to be open-minded to that and…

  11. Rockets mascot smashes cake in Lakers fan’s face (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2013, 4:43 PM EDT

    Clutch the Bear rockets mascot

    Add this to our growing “kicking the Lakers’ fans while they are down” file…. Look, these kind of things are staged. Because lawyers run NBA teams and if you just did this to some random guy in a seat the lawsuit would be filed before the game ended. Besides, if you were sitting at a…

  12. Report: Kevin Love needs surgery on hand, out 8-10 weeks

    Jan 9, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The basketball gods are not done taking out their vengeance on the Minnesota Timberwolves just yet. Kevin Love’s broken hand is worse than had first been reported — he needs surgery and will be out eight to 10 weeks, tweets Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. Love missed the start of the season recovering from a…

  13. Derrick Rose is dunking again, taking some contact in practice

    Jan 9, 2013, 3:13 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Everyone near the Bulls still says the plan is to be patient. Don’t rush Derrick Rose back. Think more like the All-Star Game timeframe. Still, there are positive signs. Like the report in the Sun-Times that Derrick Rose is dunking again. Aside that, he is taking what the team calls “predictable contact” in practice. Of…

  14. Sources: Sacramento Kings to Seattle not a done deal just yet

    Jan 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    George Maloof

    The ongoing joke about the Maloofs in league circles is that they can get the girl’s phone number, but they can’t close the deal. After Adrian Wojnarowski’s report that the Maloofs are close to finalizing a $500 million deal with Seattle billionaire Chris Hansen, closing a deal shouldn’t be a problem this time, but there…

  15. Report: Maloof family near deal to sell Kings to Hansen’s Seattle syndicate

    Jan 9, 2013, 1:53 PM EDT

    Seattle_Supersonics_Logo

    Seattle appears about to get the Sonics back. And Sacramento fans are about to take the place of Seattle fans as “good fan base screwed over by bad ownership.” We told you earlier today that there had been some buzz building that a deal was nearing where the Maloof family would sell the Sacramento Kings…

  16. Steve Nash wipes armpits on towel, then World Peace wipes his face with it (VIDEO)

    Los Angeles Lakers' Nash celebrates with teammate World Peace after defeating the Golden State Warriors in overtime in Oakland

    Not the best video quality ever, but this was making the rounds today and frankly it’s too good a combination of gross and funny not to put it up. It is from the Lakers loss to the Rockets Tuesday night. That is Steve Nash using a towel to wipe the sweat off his underarms, then…

  17. LeBron “very frustrated” with Heat’s rebounding woes

    Jan 9, 2013, 12:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James rubs his jaw after being fouled during the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis

    Miami lost to the Pacers Tuesday night because of rebounding. Miami held Indiana to 36 percent shooting on the night but gave up 22 offensive rebounds — Indiana got a second chance on 43 percent of their missed shots. That just a couple days after the Heat had team meeting to talk rebounding, those ended…

  18. Anderson Varejao to have knee surgery, out 6-8 weeks

    Jan 9, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    Anderson Varejao

    This is bad for Cleveland. Anderson Varejao was having an All-Star level season — 14.1 points and 14.4 rebounds a game, carrying more offense and playing good defense. He has a PER of 22. All that was making him attractive to other teams, and for a rebuilding Cavaliers team they might have been able to…

  19. The Extra Pass: Indiana’s Strange Success

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme that could use another glance. Today, we swing our attention to Indiana, where the Pacers are putting together one strange season. I wish there were a more aesthetically pleasing comparison available, but…

  20. Steve Nash says no guarantee Lakers will turn it around

    Jan 9, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash

    For the longest time, I was with Lakers fans on one thing — I was sure the Lakers would figure this thing out and at least make the playoffs. Now, I’m becoming less sure, just because of the math. As noted last night, the Lakers need to go 30-18 the rest of the way to…
