  1. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos…. Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: A Celtics team on the second night of a back-to-back where the first game went three overtimes ran into a Bobcats that doesn’t have a lot going for it but…

  2. Ramon Sessions’ jumper snaps Celtics win streak (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:02 AM EDT

    Ramon Sessions, Kevin Garnett, Avery Bradley, Courtney Lee

    The Celtics played three overtimes the night before and it finally showed at the end — the Bobcats closed the game on a 7-0 run and ended up winning 94-91 to snap Boston’s seven game winning streak. This was the shot that won it. Avery Bradley, the Celtics best perimeter defender, was tracking Ramon Sessions…

  3. Clippers took Lob City show to Philadelphia (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2013, 1:26 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    When the Clippers have got it going — and facing a defense not quick enough or long enough to stop them — they can put on the best show in the NBA. That show came to Philadelphia on Monday and while the hometown fans watched their team get rolled (they could have used someone like…

  4. Three Stars of the Night: Stretching Out

    Feb 12, 2013, 12:50 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    The stretch big man has come a long way. I distinctly remember watching Sam Perkins play with the Lakers and Sonics through the 90’s and wondering how someone so big could shoot it from the perimeter so well. It was a little jarring to see. Perkins was 6-foot-10, about 235 pounds, and his eyes always…

  5. Celtics Leandro Barbosa leaves game with knee injury, it doesn’t look good

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Ugh. Already without Rajon Rondo for the rest of this season, the Celtics had been counting on more from Leandro Barbosa off the bench. But late in the third quarter he went to the ground with what looked like a pretty bad knee injury. The MRI will be tomorrow, but nobody seems optimistic, reports A.…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  7. PBT Extra: Talking who can challenge the Heat, Thunder

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:33 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    We can be honest here: As of right now the smart money would be on a Miami/Oklahoma city rematch in the finals. But who could horn in on the party? That’s what Kay Adams and I discuss in the first of this week’s PBT Extra. What about the Bulls or Pacers in the East? The…

  8. Tony Parker out injured vs. Bulls; joins Ginobili, Duncan on bench

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:02 PM EDT

    Parker of the Spurs competes in the skills competition during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando, Florida

    Last time Gregg Popovich sat Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all for one game the league slapped a $250,000 fine on the Spurs. That was for a nationally televised game against the Heat where the three were healthy but needed rest. All three will be out again Monday night when the Spurs take…

  9. Report: Magic tell Redick they are not “actively” shopping him

    Feb 11, 2013, 6:52 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Two

    Oh how semantics can be fun. If there is one player you can bet gets traded before the deadline it’s J.J. Redick of the Orlando Magic. A very good three-point shooter who can put the ball on the floor, can pass and is a capable defender. Plus he’s in the last year of his contract.…

  10. Mike Bibby ejected from son’s game for arguing with officials

    Feb 11, 2013, 5:21 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby, Josh Smith, Marvin Williams

    Maybe you’ve been saying, “I wonder what happened to Mike Bibby?” If you have that question may raise bigger issues about what you do and should spend your free time thinking about, but maybe you did ask that. We have your answer — getting ejected from his son’s high-school basketball games. Bibby (the Arizona Wildcat…

  11. Dwight Howard says he’s playing through a lot of pain, but it’s more than that

    Feb 11, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Nobody is questioning that Dwight Howard is playing through shoulder pain. What Steve Nash on the court Sunday and countless others off the court have questioned is why that means he can’t move his feet quickly? Once again on Sunday against the Heat Howard was solid — 15 points and 9 rebounds in 41 minutes…

  12. Warriors unveil tight-fitting alternate uniforms with sleeves

    Feb 11, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Warriors New Uniforms

    It looks… um, different. And different often upsets people. When the Golden State Warriors take the court Feb. 22 home game against the San Antonio Spurs they are going to break out their new alternate uniforms, which you see to the right — tighter fitting with sleeves. The Warriors owners loved the idea breaking with…

  13. Brooklyn Nets announce Deron Williams out next two games

    Feb 11, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    You see this a few times every season — a banged up player taking a couple games off before the All-Star Game to get an extended break and get healthy for the stretch run. To that end, the Nets have announced Deron Williams will miss the team’s two games this week — against the Pacers…

  14. Charles Barkley says Jay-Z isn’t going to draw players to Brooklyn

    Feb 11, 2013, 2:19 PM EDT

    2011 NBA All-Star Game - Performances And Celebrities

    Charles Barkley says a lot of things that make you think “there’s Barkley being Barkley” but I liked his answer today when asked by Dan Patrick if having Jay-Z as a minority owner of the Nets is really a draw to the team. No. The most important thing a free agent wants is money. Second,…

  15. Kings fans pack the building for “Here We Buy” night

    Feb 11, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Kings Rockets

    In the end it may not change the outcome, but what the Sacramento Kings fans did Sunday night was show how much passion there still is for NBA basketball in that market. Which raises a lot of uncomfortable questions for the league. Sunday night when the Rockets came to town was “Here We Buy” night…

  16. Cavs’ Varejao says he’s lucky to be alive after blood clot surgery

    Feb 11, 2013, 12:37 PM EDT

    Anderson Varejao

    If he had not needed surgery, Anderson Varejao would be packing his bags for Houston and the All-Star Game right now. Nobody was noticing because nobody was watching Cavaliers games before Kyrie Irving got back, but Varejao was averaging better than 14 points and 14 rebounds a game with a PER of 21.8. But what…

  17. Noah’s foot issues could limit or keep him out of All-Star Game

    Feb 11, 2013, 12:03 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Joakim Noah earned his way into the All-Star Game — he’s scoring 11.2 points and grabbing 11.9 rebounds a game, but it’s really his role as high-energy anchor of the Bulls defense that got him a spot on the roster. But Noah has missed three games recently as he battles through plantar fasciitis in his…

  18. Report: Suns trying to trade for Jefferson, Hayward from Jazz

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    There are a lot of sellers on the trade market right now — Atlanta, Orlando, Utah — but it looks more and more like the Phoenix Suns might be trying to be buyers. First there were the reports the Suns were going after Iman Shumpert of the Knicks (that’s not likely to happen) and now…

  19. Lil Wayne says he was kicked out of Lakers/Heat game; that’s not how Heat describe it

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT

    Lacoste/GQ Super Bowl Party

    Rapper Lil Wayne hasn’t given up on the Lakers (which may be more than we can say for Dwight Howard, but that’s another post). Wayne wasn’t at the Grammys Sunday, he was in Miami for the start of the Lakers game against the Heat Sunday. But he wasn’t there at the end of the game.…

  20. LeBron James torches Lakers, like he has everyone recently (VIDEO)

    Feb 11, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James reacts after scoring a basket against the Los Angeles Lakers in the closing minutes of  their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    Over his last five games, LeBron James has averaged 31 points a game on 71.4 percent shooting. He;s shooting 60 percent from three in that stretch and getting to the free throw line 9.4 times a game. You can add in his 6.8 rebounds and 6 assists per game, too. He has been otherworldly, and…
