  1. When Pau Gasol returns he will start, D’Antoni said

    Jan 16, 2013, 10:38 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol Kobe Bryant

    Pau Gasol has been out more than a week with a concussion. Kobe Bryant is a little frustrated with him for showing up to practices and games, wants Gasol to sit at home in a dark room and recover. Instead Gasol has been on the bench cheering teammates. That includes the last two games, when…

  2. The Extra Pass: Kevin Durant’s shot at history

    Jan 16, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at Kevin Durant‘s chance to make NBA history. For the last three seasons, Kevin Durant has led the NBA in scoring. That’s no easy task, but doing it again…

  3. adidas unveils 2013 NBA All-Star uniforms

    Jan 16, 2013, 9:01 AM EDT

    Here we have our first look at the uniforms the players will be wearing in the 2013 NBA All-Star game on Feb. 17, and the classic red and blue look appears to be a hit at first glance. Details from the official release are below, and we’ll pass along additional images as they become available.…

  4. Celtics GM Ainge reiterates not to expect big trade (VIDEO)

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:33 AM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    We told you recently that Danny Ainge had said he didn’t plan to make a move at the trade deadline — Boston with Avery Bradley back is finally starting to defend well again and has won six straight. They are starting to look like the kind of dangerous team their fans expected. You don’t mess…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the offensive outbursts

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe Bryant gets some help

    Jan 16, 2013, 2:29 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    Regardless of how you feel about Kobe Bryant, you have to admit that he’s doing something pretty incredible this season. How many players in their 17th NBA season average nearly 30 points a game on career-best efficiency numbers? It’s unprecedented. Problem is, Kobe hasn’t been getting an awful lot of help offensively, and he’s nowhere near…

  7. Lakers find groove for second game in a row… bring on the real test (Miami)

    Jan 16, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

    It was a gimmick — after the Lakers ugly loss to the Thunder last Friday night, Mike D’Antoni said that the Lakers season really started Sunday night. Well, the Lakers are 2-0 in their “new” season, and both wins looked a lot more like what everyone expected of the team this season — Dwight Howard…

  8. Michael Beasley continues to be messed with by ‘gremlins’

    Jan 16, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    beasley_8503_1

    A funny thing happened during the Suns’ loss to the Thunder in Phoenix on Monday, and it wasn’t anything new if you’ve been following the career of Michael Beasley relatively closely. Beasley has had his ups and downs in his first year in Phoenix — mostly downs, if we’re being honest — but has contributed…

  9. Injuries, defensive woes have Timberwolves playoffs hopes fading

    Jan 15, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    Early in the season it was impressive — without stars Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio the Timberwolves were winning enough games to stay above .500. They were defending. The schedule was helpful, but it felt like once they got Kevin Love back from his broken hand and Ricky Rubio back from injury they would bolt…

  10. Chris Paul to miss a second game for Clippers due to knee

    Jan 15, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    It was expected at first that Chris Paul would miss both games in Texas that the Clippers had this week — he bumped knees with J.J. Redick on Saturday and sat out Monday night with a bruised kneecap. He’s going to be out Tuesday night as well, tweets Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. That…

  11. Spurs sued by Miami lawyer for resting top players vs. Heat

    Jan 15, 2013, 6:57 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    If you buy any product any product and it’s not what it is promised to be, you can ultimately sue the company that made it to get your money back. Should you be able to sue a professional sports team if they do not provide the players expected to perform? One Miami lawyer thinks so…

  12. “Bank of Cuban is open,” look for Dallas to be aggressive at deadline

    Jan 15, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban made a gamble — he stripped down his championship roster to go after a big time free agent, to restock a roster while Dirk Nowitizki’s championship window is still open. It didn’t work this summer — Deron Williams stayed in Brooklyn. It’s not likely to work next summer because people close to the…

  13. Tuesday And-1 links: Chris Bosh to guest star on Disney Channel’s “Jessie”

    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 your grandma loves QVC… • If you don’t have a tween daughter, you…

  14. Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson lays out framework for Kings to stay put

    Jan 15, 2013, 3:03 PM EDT

    anderson kj romani

    With reports swirling that the Kings’ move to Seattle is a mere formality at this point, the story on the ground in Sacramento is much, much different. In the end, this story comes down to three things: 1. Can Seattle’s Chris Hansen close a deal with the Maloofs to buy the Kings? (According to reports,…

  15. Others confirm report: Knicks taping Carmelo Anthony on court

    Jan 15, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Referee Brothers moves to break up New York Knicks' Anthony and Boston Celtics' Garnett as they argue during their NBA basketball game in New York

    I still don’t get it, but it really seems to be happening and it may continue. Using a guy who looks like the bassist for the heavy metal cover band that plays at your local bar, the Knicks are indeed recording what is said to and by Carmelo Anthony on the court, reports both the…

  16. Kevin Durant throws it down over the Suns (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:40 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, P.J. Tucker

    As the marketing campaign has been telling us, KD is not nice. The best part of this play by Kevin Durant is obviously the finish over a helpless Marcin Gortat, but I was almost as impressed by how he put himself in position to throw it down in the first place. Working in isolation against…

  17. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

  18. Larry Drew frustrated with Hawks team appearing in free-fall

    Jan 15, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Larry Drew

    The Atlanta Hawks have just been plain ugly the past few weeks. They are 3-7 in their last 10. In those 10 games the Hawks defense has been the biggest issue — they are giving up six points per 100 possessions more than their season average. But of late their offense has joined the “we’re…

  19. Knicks on road trip to London — and they’re happy for the rest

    Jan 15, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Steve Novak, Carmelo Anthony

    For the past couple weeks, the Knicks have not looked anything like the early season team that could be a threat to the Heat. New York is 4-6 in its last 10 games. Both the offense and defense have taken steps back in that time (both are a few points per possession off their season…

  20. Dwyane Wade has fan ejected from front row in Utah (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    We don’t have a lot of context here, we don’t know what this man said that earned him having Dwyane Wade asking security to kick him out. But Wade did, even helped by showing the way. This with just a little over three minutes left in the third quarter a game where Wade and Chris…
