  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers, Bulls get together for shootout

    Feb 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' West shoots the basketball defended by Bulls' Boozer during the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while building a nuclear fusion reactor in your garage like any normal teenager…. Pacers 111, Bulls 101: If you were expecting a defense struggle between two of the top three defenses in the Association… well, sorry. There wasn’t a lot of defense and…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: Almost Perfect

    Feb 5, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    Heat's James drives against Bobcats' Mullens, Gordon and Walker in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    You never know when it’s going to be one of those nights. You know, when regardless of what you do the shots just fall. It doesn’t matter if it’s a twisting drive to the rim, a deep three pointer, or your standard pull up from the elbow. Some nights the rim just seems bigger. Tonight,…

  3. DeMarcus Cousins ejected at halftime for arguing with refs

    Feb 5, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Note to DeMarcus Cousins: If you want to know why you don’t feel like you get a fair chance, that you don’t get the benefit of the doubt on issues, it’s because of moments like this. Too many moments like this. You need to work on letting things go. DeMarcus Cousins was ejected at halftime…

  4. Kings ownership documents reveal major potential stumbling blocks for Seattle

    CORRECTION:  February 8, 2013 An earlier version of this post incorrectly referred to a May 2003 document as an addendum to the Kings’ 1992 ownership agreement.  The May 2003 document is self-described as a proposal, which, if approved, would constitute a basis for an amendment of the Kings’ partnership agreement.  The version of the May…

  5. The Pacers give the Bulls a double dose of George (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hill slaps hands George during their NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Indianapolis

    How sure are we that Bulls-Pacers wasn’t played in Bizarro world? Indiana’s 111-101 victory over the Bulls isn’t necessarily strange, but the whole breaking 100 points thing has happened just eight times in regulation this year for the Pacers. The Pacers hadn’t even cracked the 105 mark in regulation before tonight, but they managed to…

  6. Thaddeus Young leaves game with hamstring injury (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2013, 9:27 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Monday night was an easy win for the Sixers — they raced out to a 22-6 lead and really the rest of the game was pretty sloppy and ugly — but it came with a price for Philly: They lost Thaddeus Young to a hamstring injury. You can see what happened in the video above…

  7. Blake Griffin out for Clippers Monday versus Wizards

    Feb 4, 2013, 7:44 PM EDT

    Clippers Raptors Basketball

    When Washington came to Los Angeles they played Blake Griffin physically with Nene and Kevin Seraphin, holding him relatively in check (in what was a close game). I was curious to see how Griffin and the Clippers would counter that. We’ll never know. Griffin was a late scratch for the Clippers with a hamstring issue…

  8. Report: Kevin Garnett has heavy conditions on waiving no-trade clause

    Feb 4, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    When people haven’t been talking about Beyoncé and power outages on Monday, they seem to have been planning Kevin Garnett trades. Particularly with the Clippers after reports leaked out that the two sides have talked. Those two sides are nowhere close to a deal right now, but that doesn’t stop people from speculating. Neither will…

  9. Suns’ Beasley cited for speeding, driving with suspended license, more

    Feb 4, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    The roller coaster that is Michael Beasley‘s season in Phoenix continues, with this new and latest info being a big drop that comes with an off-the-court incident. Last month Beasley was pulled over and cited, nearly arrested then released for a wide variety of traffic violations, reports Arizonasports.com after looking at police records. According to…

  10. Monday And-1 Links: JaVale McGee should be back Tuesday

    Feb 4, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    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 you loved the Beyonce halftime show. • Set your DVRs: JaVale McGee should…

  11. Nate Robinson, David Lee named NBA players of the week

    Feb 4, 2013, 4:32 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls Nate Robinson passes around Brooklyn Nets Reggie Evans and Brook Lopez in NBA game in New York

    When Nate Robinson is on and hitting, he is one of the most entertaining players in the NBA — and last week he was hitting. A lot. Robinson was named the Eastern Conference NBA Player of the week for last week. Golden State’s David Lee was the winner for the Western Conference. The Bulls went…

  12. You want to suit up for Orlando? Nelson, Redick, Afflalo all out.

    Feb 4, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    The basketball injury gods are heaping cruel and unusual punishment on Orlando Magic fans. The Magic will try to break their nine-game losing streak without starters J.J. Redick (shoulder), Jameer Nelson (arm), Arron Afflalo (this will be his fifth game out due to an injured calf), plus bench player DeQuan Jones (ankle), tweets John Denton…

  13. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  14. Jose Calderon cleared, will suit up for Pistons vs. Knicks

    Feb 4, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    Raptors' Calderon poses for the team photographer during the team's media day before the upcoming NBA basketball season in Toronto

    Detroit brought in Jose Calderon in last week’s three-team Rudy Gay trade in part because he has a $10 million expiring contract and they will go well under the salary cap next summer and be able to be free agent players. But also, Calderon can fit what they do on the court. We’ll find out…

  15. Dirk Nowitzki expects to play for Dallas Monday in OKC

    Feb 4, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    After missing a couple games with an adductor strain — two games that were close losses for Dallas where the calls didn’t go their way — Dirk Nowitzki expects to be back in the lineup Monday night when they face Oklahoma City. Nowitzki went through a full practice Sunday and told the Dallas Morning News…

  16. L.A. GM Kupchak reiterates Lakers will not be making trade

    Feb 4, 2013, 12:50 PM EDT

    Mitch Kupchak

    You can’t completely trust what a general manager says this time of year, because even if they mean it when they say “we’re not making a trade” things could change in a couple of weeks. An offer they cannot refuse could fall in their laps. But I believe Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak when he says…

  17. Joakim Noah likely out Monday night, Boozer game time call

    Feb 4, 2013, 12:28 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    There is only one real cure for the plantar fasciitis that Joakim Noah is battling — rest. So it shouldn’t be a shock the Bulls big man told the Chicago Tribune he almost certainly would be out Monday night when the Bulls face the big front line of the Pacers. “I don’t think I’ll be…

  18. Matt Bonner wants to shoot in Three-Point Contest. Let him.

    Feb 4, 2013, 11:35 AM EDT

    Matt Bonner

    Matt Bonner is shooting 42.7 percent from three-point range this year, which is just a notch above his career average of 41.5 percent. While his role is shrinking with the Spurs he still has one — he is a stretch four, a big you have to cover all the way out to the arc. You…

  19. Agent says Celtics knew Jared Sullinger would need surgery

    Feb 4, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Italy Celtics  EA7 Emporio Armani Basketball

    This shouldn’t be a surprise. Jared Sullinger — who if he had come out a year before had been talked about as a possible Top-5 pick — fell all the way down the draft board to the Celtics at No. 21 because teams had medical concerns. Which was fine with Boston, they grabbed him and…

  20. Kevin Garnett to Clippers trade nowhere close to happening

    Feb 4, 2013, 10:22 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    At this time of year, teams have some preliminary discussions about more trades than you do with your buddies in your fantasy league — teams will even ask about guys they never would trade, just to get a sense of their market value. There is a Mississippi River of back-channel or down-low trade conversations that…
