    Paul Millsap, Randy Foye, Derrick Favors, Marvin Williams

    We’re going to be talking about who gets in the playoffs — and what seed they are going to be —down to the final games on the final day of the regular season. It’s all because on Monday night the Utah Jazz beat the Minnesota Timberwolves, the struggling Suns upset the Rockets, and Golden State…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: Give me your Point Guards

    Apr 16, 2013, 1:29 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    I’m a sucker for point guards. The guys who can balance scoring and dishing; who can control the game’s flow like they do the ball in their hands. Tonight there were several worthy performances of making out list, including fantastic nights from Kevin Durant, Luis Scola, Gerald Henderson, and Greg Monroe. But, tonight, I’m going…

  3. NBA players react, express concern after marathon tragedy in Boston

    Apr 15, 2013, 11:02 PM EDT

    A runner and race officials react to an explosion during the Boston Marathon

    Just like you and me, NBA players were horrified and sickened by what happened in Boston Monday when bombs were planted and went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The blasts left three dead (one an 8-year-old child) and more than 100 injured. A lot of NBA players took to twitter to…

  4. PBT Extra: Lakers adapt to playing without Kobe… for a while

    Apr 15, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today on PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talking the big story in the NBA — Kobe Bryant and his torn Achilles injury. We talk about when he could come back and the silly idea that Mike D’Antoni’s playing time is the reason for this. If you think anybody other than Kobe himself was in…

  5. NBA cancels Tuesday night Celtics’ game in Boston in wake of marathon tragedy

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:35 PM EDT

    Runners continue to run towards the finish line as an explosion erupts at the finish line of the Boston Marathon

    This is simply the right thing to do. The NBA has cancelled the Indiana Pacers visit to the TD Garden in Boston scheduled for Tuesday night in the wake of the terrible tragedy Monday at the Boston Marathon. The game will not be replayed at a later date. This game will not impact the final…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Heat end rankings where they ended last season

    Apr 15, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers

    For the final power rankings of the year my criteria are simple: Who do I think is most likely to win a seven game series between the teams right now. It is essentially a playoff rankings. 1. Heat (64-16, last week ranked No. 1). For a couple games this week the Heat rolled out their…

  7. Duncan, Parker, Leonard out for Spurs Monday vs. Warriors

    Apr 15, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    How important is getting the No. 1 overall seed to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich? “No team would turn it down, but it’s not necessary to win a championship,” Popovich said Sunday before his team went out and lost to the Lakers. “Teams win championships with the best record, with not the best record. If you’re…

  8. No fracture, just sprain for Nuggets’ Faried. He’s out at least two games.

    Apr 15, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    This is good news, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to see Kenneth Faried back on the court soon. It looked a lot worse, but the MRI did not find broken bones, the Nuggets announced. #Nuggets F @KennethFaried35 had MRI today on left ankle. No fracture. Sprain of anterior talofibular ligament. Will miss next 2…

  9. Knicks to sit Anthony, Chandler Martin Monday night

    Apr 15, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    With nothing left to play for — the Knicks have locked up the second seed in the East and will face the Celtics in the first round of the playoffs starting this weekend — some key players are going to get rest. Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Kenyon Martin will all be out for the…

  10. Otto Porter leaving Georgetown for NBA Draft

    Apr 15, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Florida Gulf Coast v Georgetown

    Otto Porter is the latest player to declare for the NBA Draft, leaving Georgetown with two years of eligibility remaining. Porter makes a strong case for the No. 2 pick behind Nerlens Noel, but Evan Turner might hurt Porter’s case. Turner was also a do-it-all college player who lacked elite athleticism, and that deficiency has…

  11. Solomon Jones: Knicks starter by night, free-agent-to-be by day

    Apr 15, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Solomon Jones

    The Knicks started Solomon Jones yesterday. Today, they waived him. Jones played just two game with New York, but he will go down in Knicks history, according to Adam Reisinger: Solomon Jones finishes his stint in NY with the worst PER in Knicks history (minimum 15 minutes played): -5.7 Why would the Knicks do this?…

  12. Alex Len to declare for NBA Draft

    Apr 15, 2013, 1:35 PM EDT

    2013 NIT Championship - Semifinals

    Maryland center Alex Len will declare for the NBA Draft, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Len is a likely lottery pick – ESPN ranks him eighth and Draft Express ranks him 11th on their board – for one big reason: He’s 7-foot-1. Teams often favor height in the draft, because the tall players…

  13. How Monday’s games impact the playoff picture

    Apr 15, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz's Burks, Millsap, Hayward, Williams and Favors walk onto the court after a timeout during their NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets in Salt Lake City

    Sunday some things got settled — the Knicks locked themselves in the two seed in the East, for example — and now with 11 games on the slate for Monday night a few more things will get settled. So here’s a rundown of what to watch for Monday night (all times listed are Eastern). WESTERN…

  14. Who’s next as 76ers head coach? How about some Curry? Or Mike Brown?

    Apr 15, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    Mike Brown

    Doug Collins is stepping down. Oh, he could be back with the Sixers next season in some kind of front office role or as a consultant — the two sides will find some kind of buyout and graceful exit for him — but he will not be grinding the players in practice and storming the…

  15. Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel declares for draft, could go No. 1

    Apr 15, 2013, 11:34 AM EDT

    Marshall v Kentucky

    We didn’t get to see Nerlens Noel in the NCAA Tournament because: 1) Kentucky sucked this year and didn’t make it (they were bounced in the first round of the NIT); 2) He had already blown out his ACL and was done for the season. Yet he shows enough potential, and this is a down…

  16. Timberwolves owner says he hasn’t decided if GM Kahn will be back

    Apr 15, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT


    We have taken our fair share of shots at Timberwolves’ GM David Kahn over the years, and he made some bad gambles this year (Brandon Roy), but the disappointment of this season in Minnesota is not on him — injuries to Ricky Rubio (miss half of season after ACL), Kevin Love (broke his hand twice)…

  17. Dirk Nowitzki’s 25,000th point came on a very Nowitzki shot (VIDEO)

    Apr 15, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Mike James

    Outside of scoring this on a one-legged fade-away from the elbow, this was about the most Dirk Nowitzki way to get his 25,000 point. He’s 20 feet out from the rim, faces up on Robin Lopez, takes a couple jab steps to create just enough space, then takes a rainbow-arc jumper that finds the bottom…

  18. Another report says Dwight Howard plans to remain a Laker

    Apr 15, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Howard dunks the ball against the Portland Trail Blazers during their NBA game in Portland

    Some people — and yesterday that group included some national television NBA pundits — will not let facts get in the way of some good speculation. Any word leaked out of Dwight Howard’s camp has always been that he would stay a Laker. But that hasn’t stopped some people from speculating he might go to…

  19. Mavs reach .500, Dirk Nowitzki takes razor to beard (VIDEO)

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Back in February some Dallas Mavericks started growing beards — they were not going to shave until they got to .500. Finally, they got their Sunday night with a win in New Orleans — and it didn’t take a minute in the locker room for Dirk Nowitzki to pull out the razor and get that…

  20. Baseline-to-baseline recaps: Knicks wrap up two seed in the East, Lakers stay in playoff hunt with win over Spurs

    Apr 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Tim Duncan

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while planning for your digital afterlife … Heat 105, Bulls 93: The outcome of this game was no surprise, but the fact that the Bulls put up a fight after falling behind big in the second quarter showed why they’ll be a tough…
