    vince carter motorcycle celebration

    The best part of this dunk wasn’t the fact that in crunch time of a tight game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Vince Carter went strong to the rack and threw it down over Serge Ibaka. No, the awesomeness came a second or two later, when Carter made sure to get in his patented motorcycle-revving…

  2. Reports: Pacers may try to move Granger, but don’t bet on it happening

    Jan 19, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Danny Granger is close to coming back, sometime right around the start of February. On the surface that suggests the Pacers could get better — they have the best defense in the NBA but the 29th ranked offense (using points per possession). Granger gives them scoring and good wing defense, put him in the mix…

    Chicago Bulls' Noah celebrates basket against Boston Celtics' Terry during NBA basketball game in Chicago

    The Bulls beat the Celtics in overtime on Friday, on the strength of a couple of big plays that went their way down the stretch of both regulation and the extra session. Joakim Noah continued his All-Star caliber play, especially defensively where he was able to hold Kevin Garnett to just 5-16 shooting. He was…

  4. Brandon Jennings doesn’t like his All-Star chances

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    PHOENIX — Brandon Jennings, and to a lesser extent, Monta Ellis, are on the bubble in terms of potential players who could be named to the All-Star team as a reserve. We discussed this on the podcast this week — once you get past Kyrie Irving, there really aren’t any locks to make the team…

  5. Steve Nash says Suns firing Gentry may be a good thing for his former head coach

    Jan 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Alvin Gentry, Steve Nash

    Steve Nash had a good relationship with Alvin Gentry in Phoenix, his former head coach who led Nash and the Suns to the Western Conference finals back in 2010. Not surprisingly, Nash had good things to say in the wake of Gentry’s dismissal from the organization on Thursday. Nash essentially said that the parting of…

  6. Kevin Durant scores career-high 52 points, hits overtime game-winner to get win over Mavericks

    Jan 19, 2013, 1:13 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant scored 52 points, a new career-high in leading the Thunder to a 117-114 overtime win in Dallas against the Mavericks. None of his shots were as ridiculous or as important as the one you see in the video clip above. With under 27 seconds remaining in overtime and the game tied at 114,…

    Jan 19, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    Jrue Holiday is doing his best to remind coaches that he deserves a spot on the Eastern Conference All-Star team this season. Holiday finished with a career-high tying 33 points, to go along with 14 assists while scoring all 12 of his team’s overtime points to lead the Sixers to a 108-101 win over the…

    Jan 18, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Gibson reacts as Belinelli celebrates his game-winning shot with Robinson in their NBA basketball game against Boston Celtics in Boston

    This was an amazing shot by Marco Belinelli, one that gave the Bulls a hard-fought 100-99 overtime victory over the Celtics in Boston on Friday. But it shouldn’t have come to this for the Celtics. Boston led this game by three with 20 seconds left in regulation. After a free throw from Kirk Hinrich cut…

  9. Lou Williams suffers knee injury, leaves in a wheelchair (VIDEO)

    Jan 18, 2013, 9:22 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette, Lou Williams, John Salmons

    Midway through the second quarter of the game between the Hawks and the Nets on Friday, Lou Williams was forced to leave the game with a non-contact injury to his right knee. As Williams planted on the fast break, the knee seemed to buckle, and he immediately limped off the floor after feeling the injury…

  10. Avery Bradley out Friday for Celtics, could miss more

    Jan 18, 2013, 7:37 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    In the eight games he’s been back from off-season shoulder surgery the Boston Celtics have played better defense and started to look like fans expected the team to before the season. Now he’s out again. He will not suit up Friday night against the Chicago Bulls due to a rib injury and could miss more…

  11. NBA admits referees screwed up end of Bulls overtime win vs. Raptors

    Jan 18, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    350x-1

    You don’t see this very often — the NBA admitting its referees blew it — so savor this moment. Well, unless you’re a Raptors fans, then this gesture feels pretty empty. Toronto and Chicago had gone to overtime Wednesday night and it was tied 105-105 when Luol Deng hit a shot that became the game…

  12. Danny Granger does shooting drills, targets early February return

    Jan 18, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    While Danny Granger has been sidelined with a knee injury all season, the Indiana Pacers have been forced to find a new identity (or at least clarify the one they have). They’ve evolved into the best defensive team in the league and they have found enough points most nights — Paul George has taken a…

  13. You can put Kevin Garnett in the Anthony Davis fan club

    Jan 18, 2013, 3:34 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Jred Sullinger

    Fans may not get how well No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis is playing this season. For one, Damian Lillard gets all the rookie headlines, and he deserves them for his smooth offensive game and taking control of the Portland offense. Combine that with the fact Davis is an evolving offensive player — you can’t…

  14. PBT Podcast: Lakers-Heat, All-Star reserves, and a conversation with Gary Payton

    Jan 18, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to talk about the epic Thursday night matchup between the Lakers and the Heat. We wonder if anyone can beat this Miami team when LeBron James has it going like that, and discuss the Lakers overall improvement and how Pau gasol might be…

  15. The Lakers are right on schedule, but is it too late?

    Jan 18, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Steve Nash

    Picture this: Steve Nash dribbles up court, surveying the floor. As he crosses half court, he maneuvers towards the three point line. Once there, Dwight Howard comes and sets a pick and rolls hard to the basket but doesn’t get the ball. Nash probes the defense, dribbling into the paint and underneath the hoop, spotting…

  16. Alvin Gentry out as Suns head coach

    Jan 18, 2013, 1:28 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — The Suns and head coach Alvin Gentry have parted ways effective immediately, according to multiple reports. The official release from the team says that the two parties have mutually agreed to the decision, and given the talk around the team over the last week or so, that makes perfect sense. There have been…

  17. NBA players who think they had it tough growing up should talk to Leandro Barbosa

    Jan 18, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Leandro Barbosa, Gerald Green

    It’s a common story of NBA players — they focused on the game as a way they might be able to lift themselves and their family out of poverty and rough neighborhoods. That they were lucky to have the game keeping them out of gangs, keeping them alive. And it is true. But if guys…

  18. Kyle Singler takes his trick shots to London (VIDEO)

    Jan 18, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Kyle Singler

    Frankly, this isn’t as good as previous Kyle Singler trick shot videos — the one around Duke is still the best, followed by just his random ones in Detroit. But he was in London with the Pistons to get stomped by the Knicks and while there he got on a double-decker bus and hit some…

  19. Kobe Bryant says he needs more help from teammates

    Jan 18, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant reacts during their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Los Angeles

    Kobe Bryant was worn down Thursday night. On defense he spent much of the night chasing Dwyane Wade around picks and trying to shut down the league’s 10th leading scorer. On offense he faced constant aggressive ball pressure — Miami’s strategy was to take away the room and time for Kobe and Steve Nash to…

  20. Rubio wants Minnesota to stop using rash of injuries as excuse

    Jan 18, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    Injury-ravaged Minnesota looked across the court and saw the Los Angeles Clippers — a team without MVP candidate Chris Paul due to injury. But without him the Clippers this week are 3-0 with road wins against Memphis, Houston before coming to Minnesota. The Clippers just steamrolled the Timberwolves Thursday and made Minnesota’s complaining about injuries…
