  1. 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,…

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

    Mar 13, 2013, 2:37 PM EDT


    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…

  3. 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…

    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…

  5. What’s next for Jerry Stackhouse? Broadcasting? Coaching? Both?

    Mar 13, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    Jerry Stackhouse’s NBA career is a fascinating one. When he was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers back in 1995 he was the new face of the franchise, the star, the guy the Sixers were hitching their team to, something he recounts in a great feature at He remembers getting a hardhat, under-construction tour of…

  6. Highlights of Ricky Rubio’s triple-double (VIDEO)

    Mar 13, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    Ricky Rubio is getting healthy, trusting his knee and starting to look like his old self again. Actually, not starting to, is looking like his old self. Just ask the Spurs. Sure, it was a Spurs team without Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard, but how many teams have the Spurs subs made look…

  7. DeMarcus Cousins doesn’t think he did anything wrong elbowing Dunleavy to head

    Mar 13, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Scott Foster, Mike Dunleavy

    At some point Wednesday the word will come down that DeMarcus Cousins is suspended for a game or two by the NBA league office for the play above — Cousins elbowed the Bucks Mike Dunleavy in the head. In the least shocking news of the day Cousins thinks he’s innocent and misunderstood. Just like the…

    The Bobcats need to add some depth at the point guard spot so they are turning to a veteran for the stretch run. The Bobcats are about to bring in Jannero Pargo, reports the Charlotte Observer.

  9. Durant defends his shot volume and why it’s not higher

    Mar 13, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets

    Monday night in a loss to San Antonio, Kevin Durant hit 7-of-13 shots on his way to 26 points. Russell Westbrook on the other hand put up 27 shots (including a ridiculous half-court shot trying to draw a foul), hit 11, and finished with an inefficient 25 points. Tuesday that brought up the same old…

  10. Andrea Bargnani done for season in Toronto with elbow sprain

    Mar 13, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Bargnani sits on the bench during their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Toronto

    And this news will be greeted by a shrug from Raptors fans. After missing much of the season with an elbow injury he returned recently and played an uninspired 14 games. On the season Bargnani is averaging 12.7 points a game and is shooting 31 percent from three. Last Friday against the Lakers he tweaked…

  11. Are you ready for another return? Carmelo Anthony returns to Denver Wednesday.

    Mar 13, 2013, 9:49 AM EDT

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    This isn’t going to have the venom of Dwight Howard returning to Orlando Tuesday night. Certainly not the same as LeBron James first return to Cleveland. Time softens these things. But Wednesday Carmelo Anthony returns to Denver for the first time since he forced his way out a couple seasons ago. And he’s probably still…

  12. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Celtics’ off night makes Bobcats look good

    Mar 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT


    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while checking out what porn stars look like without makeup… Heat 98, Hawks 81: If Tuesday night was any indication, the Hawks should want to win enough games from here on out to avoid slipping to the eighth seed and getting the Heat…

    Mar 13, 2013, 12:51 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Howard drives around Orlando Magic Vucevic in NBA action in Orlando, Florida

    It wasn’t a very competitive night of NBA games with blowouts littering scoreboards all across the league. But many of those games wouldn’t have seen the wide margins they did if it weren’t for some fantastic performances from guys who really went above and beyond what they’d normally provide on any given night. Without further…

  14. Ricky Rubio with the double behind-the-back dribble drive (VIDEO)

    Mar 13, 2013, 12:36 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio, Cory Joseph

    It is so much fun to have the old Ricky Rubio back. He was missing the first couple months after his return from ACL surgery but on Tuesday night he dropped a triple-double on the Spurs — 21 points, 13 rebounds, 12 assists — and he dropped this move. The rare double behind-the-back dribble drive.…

  15. Dwight Howard answers Orlando boos with made free throws, Lakers win

    Mar 12, 2013, 11:38 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Tobias Harris, Jameer Nelson, Nikola Vucevic

    In the third quarter, some Magic fans were heckling Dwight Howard, tweeted Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. “You can’t win without Kobe,” the Magic fans said. “You’re right,” Howard responded. It’s true for this season (and maybe another one or two), but for one night back in Orlando Howard was enough. Howard had…

  16. Heat run win streak to 19 games by blowing out the Hawks

    Mar 12, 2013, 10:53 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    The Heat ran their win streak to 19 games on Tuesday, after cruising to a 98-81 home win over the Hawks that turned out to be just as easy as expected. Atlanta is reeling, having lost three straight and six of its last seven games. Watching the Hawks play, it’s fairly obvious that there’s no…

  17. Brook Lopez posterizes brother Robin (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2013, 9:38 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez

    We bring you some Lopez on Lopez violence. Brook Lopez trailed the play up the court and got the ball out at the top of the key with no defender on him, so he attacked as the All-Star is known to do. Robin was slow to recognize and react to the play, as he is…

  18. As expected, Dwight Howard hears plenty of boos upon return to Orlando

    Mar 12, 2013, 7:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Howard enters Amway Center before start of NBA basketball game against Orlando Magic for in Orlando

    It was what everyone expected, what Dwight Howard had to expect going when he  returned to the Amway Center Tuesday — Magic fans are still angry about how he forced his way out of town, they felt jilted and they looked at Tuesday as their cathartic outlet. Those fans didn’t miss an opportunity. And this was…

    Mar 12, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James reacts after he scored against the New York Knicks in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Between the midway point in the season and now is when guys who tend to win post season awards separate themselves. Well, except for Damian Lillard and Rookie of the Year, he’s pretty much gone Secretariat at the Belmont on that race. But MVP, Coach of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and Sixth…
