  1. Wizards’ fans chant “Redick Sucks” and he misses free throw

    Mar 14, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    J.J. Redick is a 90.5 percent free throw shooter this season — he does miss, just not very often. But at the end of an already-decided game Wednesday night Redick drove and drew the foul. As he went to the line some Wizards fans started a “Red-ick Sucks” chant, as fans are prone to do…

  2. Seeming rash of injuries could shape NBA playoff picture

    Mar 14, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    On a court in Denver, Knicks fans watched Carmelo Anthony leave early to get to the locker room as his knee was clearly bothering him into another bad shooting night. Later he was on a plane back to New York to get fluid drained from that knee and other procedures to get him back on…

  3. My new favorite ejection: Larry Sanders gives referees thumbs up (VIDEO)

    Mar 14, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    Best. Ejection. Reaction. Ever. Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders already had one technical when in the fourth quarter he argued a charging call and picked up a second technical — which means an automatic ejection. Sanders has been ejected four times this season (that’s a DeMarcus Cousins pace) so he has some experience. Most players throw a…

  4. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce reach scoring milestones in win

    Mar 14, 2013, 10:24 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett (L) and Celtics forward Paul Pierce watch the scoreboard video screen from the sidelines in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Toronto Raptors in Boston

    It was a night to talk history. Not just NBA history but the personal histories that tie two legendary current Celtics — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett — together. And there is no better place to talk NBA history than the Boston Garden. Wednesday night Kevin Garnett scored a dozen points and moved past “The…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Denver fans savor blowout of Knicks

    Mar 14, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson, Tim Thomas, Chris Copeland

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were watching the papal seagull….. Heat 98, 76ers 94: There was a time this season when the Heat were coasting and this was the kind of game where they just didn’t bring any heart. But now they have something to play…

  6. Report: Knicks about to cut James White to add point guard

    Mar 14, 2013, 8:58 AM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    The Knicks have some point guards on the roster — Raymond Felton starts and is solid at least and good many nights. Behind him are veterans Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni, two guys who play smart but are not exactly explosive shot creators anymore. Which is why the Knicks are looking at bringing in another…

  7. Jrue Holiday dunks on LeBron James. Sort of. (VIDEO)

    Mar 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    This was a key play for Philadelphia on Monday — it tied the Sixers and the Heat with less than 90 seconds in the game. (The rest of the game didn’t go the Sixers way.) It all starts because Holiday is aggressive coming off the pick, while Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh do about the…

  8. Three Stars of the Night: Guys that their teams need in the playoffs edition

    Mar 14, 2013, 2:50 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers center Hibbert puts up a shot against Minnesota Timberwolves forward Williams during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Every team entering the playoffs needs their star to step up, but these three guys have a little extra weight on their shoulders. Without big performances these guys’ teams sink fast in the postseason (or in Kobe’s case, don’t even make the playoffs). Honorable mention tonight to Thaddeus Young who put up 24 points and…

  9. Carmelo Anthony to get knee drained; Tyson Chandler’s knee tweak not serious

    Mar 14, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    Knicks fans, we have some good news about one of your players knees. And then some more worrying news. After Tyson Chandler collided with Denver’s Corey Brewer and had to be helped to the locker room, Knicks fans were rightfully worried. That looked like it could be serious. But later Wednesday night came some good…

  10. Kobe Bryant out indefinitely with severe ankle sprain

    Mar 13, 2013, 10:58 PM EDT

    Lakers Hawks Basketball

    Just when you thought the Lakers were past the injury bug that plagued their early season. Kobe Bryant is out indefinitely with severe ankle sprain suffered in the closing seconds of the Lakers loss in Atlanta Wednesday, according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell. Kobe said after the game this was as bad a sprain as…

  11. Heat extend win streak to 20 but Sixers make them work for it

    Mar 13, 2013, 10:29 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    In the first half of the season, this was the kind of game the Heat would lose — a back-to-back, a fired up opponent playing better than they have in weeks, and the Heat just kind of coasting. With an 8.5 game lead over the No. 2 in the East, it’s the kind of game…

  12. Chris Wright, first known NBA player with MS, signs with Mavs

    Mar 13, 2013, 8:49 PM EDT

    Chris wright

    Chris Wright, the former Georgetown point guard, signed a 10-day contract with the Dallas Mavericks, reports ESPNDallas.com. Which is normally the kind of note that gets glossed over this time of year. But Wright is breaking a barrier — he is the first known player in the NBA diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The disease, commonly…

  13. Teague out, Smith doubtful for Hawks vs. Lakers Wednesday

    Mar 13, 2013, 6:57 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Looks like the Lakers are catching a break. Facing the Hawks on the second night of a back-to-back (the Hawks are on one, too) Los Angeles is catching Atlanta without starting point guard Jeff Teague and the Hawks also may be without forward Josh Smith. Jeff Teague just told me he will not play tonight.…

  14. No suspension for DeMarcus Cousins; injury may sideline him anyway

    Mar 13, 2013, 6:33 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins will almost certainly sit out Wednesday night when the Sacramento Kings take on the Chicago Bulls. But not because the league told him too. In a surprise decision, the league is not going to suspend Cousins for the elbow to the head of Mike Dunleavy on Monday reports Sam Amick at the USA…

  15. Wednesday And-1 links: Do the Hawks, Lakers struggles with playoff teams matter?

    Los Angeles Lakers Steve Nash of Canada intervenes as Kobe Bryant berates Metta World Peace for committing a foul during their NBA game in Los Angeles

    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 Jack Bauer loves danger (sorry, got sucked into a “24” rerun the other…

  16. Kevin Love’s hand needs another 2-3 weeks to recover

    Mar 13, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is getting closer to returning — and teasing us for a few weeks with what might have been this season in Minnesota — but he’s not quite there yet. Love had surgery on his hand back in January and it was expected to take 8-10 weeks to recover. It looks like it could…

  17. Thursday’s hostile homecoming: Raymond Felton to Portland

    Mar 13, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton

    While Carmelo Anthony is not going to be showered with rose petals and given boxes of chocolate Wednesday night when he returns to Denver, the venom for him there has tapered off with time. As Wednesday morning there were still tickets available — the game was not a sellout. But talk to people in Portland,…

  18. You can get DeAndre Jordan’s dunk face on a T-shirt

    Mar 13, 2013, 2:37 PM EDT

    Nice.-Image-via-Under-Armour

    DeAndre Jordan’s dunk over Brandon Knight was an instant YouTube sensation (that post is the most viewed on this site in the past week) and spawned a rash of memes (the Brandon Knight R.I.P. being the biggest if most misplaced). But maybe the best part of the video (after the dunk itself) was Jordan’s face…

  19. Carmelo Anthony admits he may need to get knee drained

    Mar 13, 2013, 2:13 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony grimaces as he leaves the court after injuring himself when falling at midcourt during the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers

    Carmelo Anthony has more to worry about than the boos that he’s going to hear in Denver on Wednesday night. And he’s going to hear them even if the fans in Denver have largely moved on. The bigger issue for Anthony and the Knicks is they are a win now team that has been 20-18…

  20. Stern says changes at players union could be good for NBA

    Mar 13, 2013, 1:39 PM EDT

    File photo of NBA Commissioner Stern speaks in New York

    Right now, everything is in flux with the NBA players union. Billy Hunter has been voted out but is bringing a lawsuit regarding his firing, and right now the two sides are just trying to negotiate a price to end it. Meanwhile, a lot of issues that were left on the table during the last…
