  1. Rockets sign Earl Boykins to 10-day contract

    Mar 26, 2012, 4:28 PM EST

    BOYKINS_EARL

    The Rockets need all the backcourt help they can get right now. Kyle Lowry is out (and is not even being evaluated again until April 7 and he could be out for the season), Kevin Martin has had shoulder issues and Kevin McHale has not yet figured out how to clone Goran Dragic. So the…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  3. Amare Stoudemire, Jeremy Lin may be out for Knicks Monday

    Mar 26, 2012, 2:52 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Charlotte Bobcats

    Knicks fans, this should make you a little nervous — Amare Stoudemire is having back issues late in the season. That’s what happened last year and if history repeats itself it will be very difficult for the Knicks to get out of the first round. Actually, they have to get into the playoffs first and…

  4. Video: Who has the best floater in the NBA?

    Mar 26, 2012, 2:31 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    When you talk about the best floaters in the game, you are talking about the best point guards in the league — Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul all get mentions in this video. And deservedly so. That said, Tony Parker didn’t get in this video from NBA.com and he should, he’s been doing…

  5. Charles Barkley says Kentucky could beat Toronto, Charlotte

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:02 PM EST

    2010 NBA All-Star T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    This happens every year right before the Final Four. Some loudmouth says that the best college team in the land could beat the worst NBA team. This year’s loudmouth is Charles Barkley. Guess we shouldn’t be shocked by that. Here is what he said, via our sister (brother?) blog CollgeBasketballTalk, which you should be reading…

  6. LeBron, Wade honor Trayvon Martin on their shoes

    Mar 26, 2012, 12:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade wears "We Want Justice" on his shoe in tribute to slain 17-year-old-Trayvon Martin during their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Detroit

    The Miami Heat have leapt headlong into the Trayvon Martin situation, with statements from players and photos from the team. The latest step along those lines came with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade writing “RIP Trayvon Martin” on their shoes for games against Detroit and Oklahoma City. Wade also wrote “We Want Justice” on his.…

  7. Does Phil Jackson want to coach again? Even Jeanie Buss doesn’t know.

    Mar 26, 2012, 11:34 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    The New York Knicks have not contacted Phil Jackson about coaching them yet. At least not formally (anything might have happened through back channels). But at some point they will offer the job to him, the question is will he take it? He was burned out after his second stint with the Lakers and talked…

  8. Monday And-1 links: Trayvon’s father thanks Heat players

    Here is our daily 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. • The father of Trayvon Martin thanked the Miami Heat for their support. •…

  9. How Kevin Durant almost played for North Carolina

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    kevin durant texas

    Kevin Durant in Carolina blue rather than Texas burnt orange? I have trouble picturing it, but it almost happened, apparently. The New York Post’s Peter Vecsey had a story Sunday primarily about how Kevin Love and Kevin Durant are good friends going way back to seventh grade. How Durant has been over to Love’s family…

  10. Mickael Pietrus out indefinately with concussion after fall

    Mar 26, 2012, 10:20 AM EST

    Mickael Pietrus

    Friday night it looked scary for Mickael Pietrus — after an awkward fall in Philadelphia where his neck snapped a little (but his head never hit the floor) he had to be taken off the court on a stretcher. He was released from the hospital but did not travel with the team back to Boston.…

  11. Yes, Kobe Bryant sat a key stretch of fourth quarter. So?

    Mar 26, 2012, 9:35 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    With 5:45 left in Sunday night’s game and the Lakers down 14 points, coach Mike Brown sat Kobe Bryant Sunday night. He sat for the next 3:53 of a game where the Lakers were within striking distance of the Grizzlies (but never closed the gap and lost 102-93. This has caused consternation among Lakers fans…

  12. Video: Dwyane Wade drains three-quarter court shot at buzzer

    Mar 26, 2012, 8:06 AM EST

    Dwyane Wade

    It was about the only thing the Heat seemed to do right in the second half. To beat the buzzer at the end of the third quarter Sunday night, Dwyane Wade launched a three-quarter court shot. And drained it. The Thunder still ran away with the game, but the shot is worth seeing so we’re…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  14. Thunder roll on Miami as Heat roll over

    Mar 26, 2012, 1:36 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Miami Heat 103-87 Sunday night behind Kevin Durant‘s 29 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists. It was an MVP performance by Durant and a statement game for the Thunder. For the Heat, it was yet another in a long series of headache-inducing performances in which the Heat faced the…

  15. Spurs list Tim Duncan as “DND – OLD”

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:19 PM EST

    spursboxdndold2

    The Spurs are the funniest team in the league you don’t know is funny. From their HEB commercials to Popovich clowning Shaq with a Hack-A-Shaq two seconds into the game, they come off as a boring club, but really, they’re pretty entertaining. On the official roster that each team submits before the game, the Spurs…

  16. 5 Things to Watch: Heat-Thunder, a potential Finals preview worth playing

    Mar 25, 2012, 6:30 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

      Best in the East vs. best in the West. Nope, that’s not right. The two clearly best teams in the league. Well, no, not really with how open the West is. OK, how about just: A more-probable-than-on-average chance that these two teams will meet in the Finals. There. Sufficiently hedged. The Miami Heat and…

  17. Cavs might bring back Jamison next season

    Mar 25, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Antawn Jamison

    When the Cavaliers traded for Antawn Jamison, it was supposed to be the move that brought them a championship, the final piece of the puzzle for LeBron James to bring a title to Cleveland. Instead, Jamison never showed the ability he had when he was younger, couldn’t adjust to the system fast enough, and had…

  18. Brook Lopez out a while longer as CT scan reveals another “small crack”

    Mar 25, 2012, 1:30 PM EST

    Brook Lopez

    On the list of guys who you should feel bad for regarding this season, Brook Lopez has to be one of the bigger candidates. Imagine if your job kept working with you to get you back at work from an injury, but you knew the only reason they were is that they want to use…

  19. Arron Afflalo suspended for elbow to head of Gordon Hayward

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:35 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    If you saw the play — or even watched the video above — you knew this was coming. Denver’s Arron Afflalo has been suspended one game for throwing an elbow to the head of Utah’s Gordon Hayward during the third quarter of the Jazz’s win Friday night. Afflalo was ejected from that game and will…

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    There are going to be comments below and tweets about this story that are going to make you question whether we shouldn’t just abandon society and live as separate lives as we can, because we’re truly vile. As an incredibly funny man once said, “We’re a virus with shoes.” But the story needs to be…
