    Magic Johnson

    Apparently, that guy in the AT&T commercials is tired of speaking with children in order to highlight the company’s service offerings. The wireless provider went out and got Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bill Russell to appear in its most recent iteration of television spots, with the one in the video clip above…

    Dirk Nowitzki

    We talked about the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West between the Jazz and the Lakers earlier today, but the Mavericks are likely to be in the conversation through the end of the regular season, as well. Dallas has finally gotten Dirk Nowitzki back healthy, and has now won 11…

    Mar 30, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili

    The Spurs got a big win over the Clippers on Friday, thanks to 34 points and 11 rebounds from Tim Duncan, including the game-winning and-1 with just a couple of seconds remaining. San Antonio did it without Manu Ginobili, who (as seen in the video clip above) left the game late in the first quarter…

  6. Larry Drew not happy with (Josh Smith’s) shot selection after loss to Celtics

    Mar 30, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Larry Drew, Josh Smith, Kyle Korver

    Hawks head coach Larry Drew lamented his team’s poor shot selection after a loss in Boston on Friday, one where his team gave up 118 points to a Celtics squad that hadn’t scored that many since an overtime win over the Nuggets way back on Feb. 10. Atlanta shot 45.5 percent from the field as…

  7. Jazz back in playoff picture, Lakers out with nine games left in the regular season

    Mar 30, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Favors, Paul Millsap

    The Jazz came from 14 points down in the second half to get a big win in Portland on Friday, and by doing so, temporarily reclaimed the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference standings. The victory was significant, for multiple reasons. It brought Utah’s record on the season to 37-36, which is…

  8. Veteran Al Harrington trying to retire on his own terms

    Mar 30, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    At age 33, after 14 seasons in the NBA, Al Harrington has had a good career. He’s averaged 13.7 points a game with 5.7 rebounds. His career is winding down. He’s fought hard to bounce back from knee surgery only to find himself on a Magic team that is going with a youth movement —…

  9. LeBron scores 23 points in less than six minutes in Heat’s win over Hornets (VIDEO)

    LeBron James, Darius Miller

    LeBron James turned in a special performance during the first half of the Heat’s blowout win in New Orleans on Friday, pouring in 23 of his 36 points in a span that lasted less than six minutes. James began his assault with three straight three-pointers near the end of the first period, and followed it…

  10. Suns players bothered by team’s decision to sit a healthy Goran Dragic

    Mar 30, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Lindsey Hunter, Goran Dragic, Wesley Johnson

    When the Suns decided to rest a perfectly healthy Goran Dragic for the team’s last two games, there was really no question as to the reasons why. Phoenix is all the way out of the playoff picture, and has been for some time. Winning games is no longer the priority for these Suns, while player…

  11. Tim Duncan’s and-1 game winner beats Clippers (VIDEO)

    Mar 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    It was a well-designed play well executed. That is to say, it was vintage Spurs. Down 1 with :07 seconds left to the Clippers, the Spurs needed a last second shot and (with Manu Ginobili out) logic suggests they would turn to Tony Parker (who can create his own look). But while Parker tries to…

  12. Chauncey Billups out with groin strain, status for remainder of the season in doubt

    Mar 29, 2013, 11:27 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    The Clippers could certainly use the veteran and capable presence of Chauncey Billups as they finish the regular season, while heading into a postseason battle that could be extremely difficult if the team should end up as part of the 4-5 first round matchup. Billups has played just 20 games for the Clippers all season,…

    NEW ORLEANS — The Heat’s 27-game winning streak may be over, but they aren’t ready to stop terrorizing the rest of the NBA quite yet. The Heat still own the league’s best record and have the league’s best player, and they were out to prove a point on Friday night. The Heat actually looked better…

  14. Kobe probable, Nash questionable for Lakers Saturday

    Mar 29, 2013, 10:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Bryant and point guard Nash of Canada after shaking hands after beating the Charlotte Bobcats during an NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    If you looked at the Lakers schedule before the season started and saw a Saturday night game, 73rd of the season, you might think that would be a good night to get Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash a little rest. It hasn’t worked out that way — the Lakers had a half-game lead over the…

  15. Amar’e Stoudemire hopes to be back in time for the playoffs

    Mar 29, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    Fashion's Night Out At SAKS Fifth Avenue

    It’s been almost three weeks since it was discovered that Amar’e Stoudemire would require knee surgery which would keep him out of the Knicks lineup for the rest of the regular season, at the very least. Stoudemire, speaking on a conference call to promote an upcoming documentary, said that the rehabilitation process is going well,…

  16. David Stern talks Jordan, television, race in the NBA

Along those lines, Stern spoke at a “Captains…

  17. Riley to Ainge: “STFU”

    Mar 29, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    NEW ORLEANS — Well, Pat Riley just added a little more fuel to the Heat-Celtics rivalry that simply won’t die. After Celtics GM Danny Ainge recently called LeBron James‘ complaints about the hard fouls he takes “almost embarrassing,” the Heat President fired back with both barrels in a pre-game statement delivered to the Heat media by…

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Superman loves Lois. • Remember the Miami Heat fan who sued the San…

  19. Former Laker A.C. Green had three championship rings stolen

    Mar 29, 2013, 4:47 PM EDT

    A.C Green

    You remember A.C. Green, right? He’s the physical power forward out of Oregon State who was drafted straight into the middle of Magic Johnson’s Showtime Lakers and picked up some rings as one of the game’s better role players. Or, maybe you know him the guy who played in a ridiculous 1,192 straight games. Or,…

  20. LeBron, Heat shrug at reaction to physical play complaints

    Mar 29, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James reacts after being fouled during the Heats NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    LeBron James’ timing was poor. His complaint that teams are overly physical in their fouls on him is not wildly out of line — LeBron is incredibly strong and if you are trying to foul him across the arms to take away the easy bucket you better be strong too or LeBron will have an…
