  1. All nine of Paul George’s three-pointers against the Hornets (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Paul George, Roy Hibbert

    Paul George had a monster night on Wednesday, pouring in 37 points and helping his team to a much-needed overtime victory over the Hornets. The majority of those points came from three-point distance, as George hit 9-of-13 from long range to just bury New Orleans in buckets. All nine can be seen in the video…

  2. D’Antoni says Steve Blake could return Tuesday

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant and Blake celebrate beating Denver Nuggets at their NBA Western Conference playoff in Los Angeles

    Point guard play has always been a source of consternation for Lakers fans, but the issues there were supposed to be all taken care of with the offseason acquisition of Steve Nash. Nash has missed the last 10 games with a non-displaced leg fracture, however, and while the majority of his time missed due to…

  3. Kendrick Perkins wants to guard Rajon Rondo when Thunder face the Celtics

    Nov 23, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Kendrick Perkins

    Plenty of story lines are in play when the Thunder face the Celtics, as they will Friday night in Boston, due to the 2010 deal between the two teams that saw Kendrick Perkins and Jeff Green trade places. Both players were thought at the time to be untouchable members of each team’s core, with Perkins…

  4. Report: Lakers show interest in Raja Bell

    Nov 23, 2012, 2:15 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant has long been interested in adding Raja Bell as a teammate. He tried to convince Bell to sign in Los Angeles back in 2010, but Bell chose to go with Utah instead. Now, with Bell’s former coach Mike D’Antoni holding down the head coaching job in Los Angeles, the team might be interested…

  5. Raymond Felton tired of Jeremy Lin comparisons

    Nov 23, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    The Knicks play the Rockets Friday night, and the matchup will mark the first time that Jeremy Lin will face his former team after making a name for himself in New York during the incredible but brief “Linsanity” run last season. When the Knicks didn’t match Houston’s free agent offer to Lin, and ended up…

  6. Chris Bosh isn’t worried about what you think he should do

    Nov 23, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh poses for a portrait during media day at the Miami Heat's home arena in Miami, Florida

    Chris Bosh doesn’t care what numbers you think he should hit. Before last season Bosh predicted he would grab 10 rebounds a game, he grabbed jus 7.9. The Heat won the NBA title. Bosh will make that trade any day of the week. So this season he isn’t worrying about the numbers, it’s the flow…

  7. Maybe Indiana is figuring out how to win without Granger

    Nov 23, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Paul George, Lance Stephenson

    For those of us who came into this season saying the Indiana Pacers were likely the second best team in the East, their ugly 3-6 start didn’t look good at all. Especially if you watched them play and saw an offense that looked as lethargic as you felt right after your third helping of Thanksgiving…

  8. Kobe Bryant has nicknamed Steve Nash “Gatsby”

    Nov 23, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Steve Nash of Canada and Kobe Bryant react during their loss to the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    It was an innocuous comment in a Los Angeles Times article about Kobe Bryant’s efficient play this season, but J.E. Skeets noticed it and put it on twitter. Bringing the ball up and having me kind of initiate the offense and score and stuff like that, it’s making me work a little more than I…

  9. Jeff Green finally to face former team… and he yawns

    Nov 23, 2012, 10:42 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Last January, when Kendrick Perkins faced the Celtics for the first time since they traded him away, Jeff Green was home. Recovering from heart surgery, which was a pretty good excuse to skip the game. But that changes Friday when Green takes on the team that moved him in a still-controversial 2010 deadline deal when…

  10. Stackhouse and ‘Sheed did it, so how about a Michael Finley comeback?

    Nov 23, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Sacramento Kings

    We last saw Michael Finley as a guy who barely got off the Boston Celtics bench in the 2010 playoffs, and when he did he shot just 25 percent. After that, the former All-Star walked away from the game to become a part of the Dallas Mavericks front office staff. But the long time Maverick…

  11. Video: If you missed it, Iguodala dunked all over Kirilenko

    Nov 23, 2012, 8:50 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    This is why the Denver Nuggets were drooling over the idea of adding Andre Iguodala to their team — he’s an elite wing defender and he can finish strong in transition. Don’t take my word for it, ask Andrei Kirilenko, who got in front of the Iggy express last Wednesday and got run over. Hat tip…

  12. Coach says Jeremy Lin benched in fourth because of defense

    Nov 23, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    It was a back-and-forth game in the fourth quarter Wednesday night between the Rockets and Bulls, one that wasn’t decided until a late 10-0 Rockets run. And Jeremy Lin wasn’t on the court for much of it. After a regular nearly 9 minute stint to open the second half, Lin came out and barely got…

  13. Players questioning Lawrence Frank’s rotations in Detroit

    Nov 23, 2012, 3:24 AM EDT

    350x-5

    Nobody really expected the Detroit Pistons to be all that good this year — this is a rebuilding team trying to grow and see what they really have with players like Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight, Kyle Singler, Andre Drummond and more. But they haven’t lived up to even those low expectations — they are bottom…

  14. NBA says refs missed a call at the end of Raptors-Bobcats

    Nov 22, 2012, 9:30 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Lowry questions a call by a referee during their NBA basketball game against Charlotte Bobcats in Charlotte

    This doesn’t happen very often, so when it does, you know it was something egregious. The NBA released a statement saying that the officials missed a foul call at the end of the game between the Raptors and the Bobcats on Wednesday. Charlotte was leading by one, when the ball was inbounded to Andrea Bargnani.…

  15. Jeremy Lin says he thinks ‘Melo, Stoudemire can coexist, too

    Nov 22, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    The Knicks are off to an impressive 8-2 start, their offense is clicking at the highest level in the league (111.7 points per 100 possessions), yet there is a big question looming over New York’s season — can Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire play well together? Stoudemire has been out all season following knee surgery,…

  16. Video: Kenyan Orphans re-create 1987 NBA Eastern Conference Finals (for charity)

    Nov 22, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    037

    Is this a cheap publicity stunt to raise money for an orphanage in Kenya? Yes. No doubt. And we’re good with it for two reasons — first, it’s a really entertaining video. Job well done. And sorry you have to relive that, Pistons fans. Second, and most importantly, it’s a good cause. If you are…

  17. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  18. Al Horford’s little brother reacts to a close-up look at a cheerleader, and it’s priceless (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2012, 3:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    The young man in the video clip above is the little brother of Atlanta Hawks center Al Horford, and even at his tender age, he already has a fascination with the ladies. The fun took place during Wednesday’s game between the Hawks and the Wizards. While initially distracted by the free candy (because hey, free…

  19. Blazers coach Stotts calls out Meyers Leonard

    Nov 22, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

    Meyers Leonard

    The Suns had no problem with the Blazers on Wednesday, and Portland’s front line defense, or lack thereof, was the main reason why. Marcin Gortat and Jermaine O’Neal combined for 39 points on 18-of-23 shooting, and a lot of those buckets came at the expense of Meyers Leonard. Leonard is a rookie who now has…

  20. Video: Kevin Love is back and he didn’t miss a beat

    Nov 22, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Danilo Gallinari

    Kevin Love returned from his broken hand — from doing knuckle pushups — on Wednesday night, but we have to remember he has been out a while and we should give him time to…. What? He dropped 34 points and 14 rebounds on the Nuggets? Oh. Never mind then. Kevin Love is back and that…
