  1. World Peace to have knee surgery, out six weeks

    Mar 27, 2013, 4:28 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    UPDATE 4:28 pm: Metta World Peace will have surgery on his left knee Thursday and is expected to be out at least six weeks, tweets Lakers reporter Mike Trudell. That would have the Lakers starting small forward and team +/- leader (among regulars) out until the first weeks of May. Which means if you think…

  2. Dwyane Wade will suit up, play against Bulls Wednesday

    Mar 27, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Well, one superstar will be back on the court Wednesday. After missing a couple games resting a sore knee, Dwyane Wade will be back Wednesday night in Chicago when the Heat go for win 28 in a row against the Bulls. Dwyane Wade said "I'll give it a go" tonight against the Bulls. Wade went…

  3. Mike Woodson wants Knicks to end Heat’s streak

    Mar 27, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    Next Tuesday night, on national television, the New York Knicks will travel to Miami to take on the Heat. If they win their next three games — which is no easy task and includes at San Antonio Sunday — the Heat will be at 30-consecutive wins when New York faces them. Just three games off…

  4. Rose not returning for Heat game. Fine. But it’s time for him to make a call.

    Mar 27, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose takes a break on the bench during the warm up before the team's NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers in Chicago

    It shouldn’t be a surprise after he missed the first 69 games this season, but because it would have been a dramatic return some people were holding out hope: Derrick Rose will not play against the Miami Heat Wednesday. Rose confirmed that speaking with the media after shootaround. DRose, on missing Heat: "Every game is…

  5. Dwyane Wade says Chicago never fully embraced him

    Mar 27, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    Dwyane Wade is a Chicago guy, born and raised. Well, he seems himself that way. But he went to high school at Richards High in Oak Lawn, Ill., almost half an hour outside the city’s core. He played his high school ball in the suburbs. So the city never embraced him as one of their…

  6. Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade star in new Gatorade ad (VIDEO)

    Mar 27, 2013, 11:37 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant (R) of the Oklahoma City Th

    It’s not the best ad Gatorade has ever done, but it’s still pretty darn good. It certainly sticks with Gatorade’s “we help you work harder” theme. The glory of working out in the offseason. And that’s a scenario at the rim we certainly could see come the NBA finals.

  7. Knicks have strange habit of starting players and then barely playing them

    Mar 27, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Mike Woodson, Chris Copeland

    The Knicks, as pointed out by Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal, often start players like James White and Kurt Thomas and then give them very few minutes. Herring uses a couple different benchmarks – five or fewer minutes, fewer than 16 minutes – but, either way, the Knicks lead the league by a…

  8. J.R. Smith drains buzzer-beating 30 footer (VIDEO)

    Mar 27, 2013, 10:52 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    You know it’s going to be your kind of night when… J.R. Smith had it going Tuesday night — 32 points on 24 shots to help power the Knicks win over the Celtics — but you know he has it going when the notoriously streaky shooter (if you believe in such things) knocked this one…

  9. Kenyon Martin on Boston not signing him: “It’s their fault”

    Mar 27, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin, Jonas Valanciunas, Alan Anderson

    With Kevin Garnett out a couple of weeks dealing with “inflammation” in his ankle, the lack of depth up front for Boston is exposed. It cost them against the Knicks Tuesday night, the fifth straight loss for Boston. They could have used someone such as New York’s late pickup Kenyon Martin. But they chose not…

  10. Wild end to regulation in Mavericks win over Clippers (VIDEO)

    Mar 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul drives on Dallas Mavericks Nowitzki during their NBA game in Dallas, Texas

    These were the final three plays of regulation from a dramatic game: First Chris Paul drives around 6’7″ Shawn Marion then elevating and going over 6’8″ Elton Brand, off the glass and in for a bucket that put the Clippers up two. Paul scored the last 10 points for the Clippers in regulation, he was…

  11. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Knicks have won five in a row

    Mar 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while imagining playing video games at the urinal…. Mavericks 109, Clippers 102 (OT): Chris Paul did his best to lift the Clippers — 33 points on 15 shots, including scoring the team’s last 10 points in regulation. But it wasn’t enough and he…

  12. Three Stars of the night: CP3, Dirk trade shots in Dallas

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Best game of the night was in Dallas, and we’ve got two from that game. Plus the hot hand that did in Boston. Third Star: Chris Paul (33 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) For much of the game Dallas took the strategy of making Chris Paul the scorer for the Clippers. This is the same…

  13. Mavericks beat Clippers, move close to playoffs… and a shave

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:01 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Matt Barnes

    One more win and the Dallas Mavericks will reach .500 — and they can shave their beards. You remember, the ones they were going to grow until they got their record even, a process that has taken so long the team starting to look like a young ZZ Top? It’s almost time for razors soon, they…

  14. Damian Lillard talks his fear of historic statues (and other stuff)

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Russell Westbrook

    Your soon-to-be NBA Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard was on NBC Sports Network’s The Crossover Tuesday (with Michelle Beadle and Dave Briggs, you’ll be able to tell them apart in the video) to talk about his one great weakness — a fear of historical statues. Seriously. Which is odd and interesting but difficult to use…

  15. Metta World Peace has meniscus tear in knee, out for a while

    Mar 26, 2013, 10:25 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Metta World Peace

    The Lakers perimeter defense is a mess this season — Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Jodie Meeks are not good defenders. Kobe Bryant can be but is prone to gambling. The result is Dwight Howard left trying to clean up too many messes. Metta World Peace is the one guy the Lakers count on to…

  16. Creating a legacy: Comparing Miami Heat, ’72 Lakers win streaks

    Mar 26, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West

    It’s about legacy. When you talk about the 1972 Lakers 33-game win streak you talk about a team that had been the best in the West for the better part of a decade but had no rings to show for it, and when they put it together that year they dominated the league for a…

  17. John Wall is knocking down jumpers. Steadily.

    Mar 26, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    You’ve all heard the book on John Wall — go under the pick, play off him, he’s as quick as any guard in the league, amazing straight line speed, is a good playmaker… But he has no jump shot. Except, lately he has been knocking down his remade jumper. A lot of people noticed it…

  18. Chris Paul’s shoe closet is bigger, has more Jordans than yours

    Mar 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT


    So, I’m thinking Chris Paul is a sneakerhead. That photo you see to the right is from one of the bedrooms in his Los Angeles area home that was converted into a shoe closet. Seriously. Then again what else was he going to do with hundreds and hundreds of Jordans. Our own D.J. Foster would…

  19. Dwight Howard says he will remember elbow from David Lee. Really?

    Mar 26, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Note to Dwight Howard: The best revenge is not getting beat in a key division game. But that’s not what Howard was talking about after the Lakers loss Monday to Golden State. In the second quarter Klay Thompson drove around Steve Blake like he wasn’t there (the Lakers perimeter defense was a disaster all game),…

  20. LeBron throws down one alley-oop pass, makes another (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen, E'Twaun Moore, Norris Cole, LeBron James

    You know that whole rule about not turning the ball over against the Miami Heat because it can lead to easy buckets and spectacular dunks that fire them up? Orlando forgot about that in the second half Monday. Well, that or they are Orlando and couldn’t stop what was happening anyway. First up is poor…
