  1. Report: Injured or not, Warriors may make run at Andrew Bogut

    Mar 12, 2012, 3:06 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bogut may not be available until the playoffs at best. The Golden State Warriors are not making the playoffs. (Sorry Warriors fans, I know it’s mathematically possible, but you need to accept it. You can’t keep the same mediocre roster and expect different results.) Still, the Warriors are looking to make a run at…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls, Heat own top two spots. Again.

    Mar 12, 2012, 2:38 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The trade deadline could really shake up the power rankings… but probably not. 1. Bulls (34-9, last week ranked number 1). The Bulls keep winning while they are banged up — Joakim Noah is back Monday for the Knicks but Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton are out. Those wins are really impressive. But the big…

  3. Report: Brandon Jennings on the trade block “for right price”

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:31 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    All you fans trying to dream up trade scenarios where your team can land a star point guard by just trading away a rack of shootaround basketballs — or Luke Walton — we have another name to consider. Brandon Jennings. They are rethinking everything in Milwaukee and injured center Andrew Bogut was already on the…

  4. Report: Howard likes Clippers, Heat. Please make this stop.

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

  5. Serious neck injury forces Spurs’ T.J. Ford to retire

    Mar 12, 2012, 12:31 PM EST

    T.J. Ford

    Last Wednesday night T.J. Ford left the Spurs game with what was described as a “neck stinger,” the latest in a line of neck injuries the point guard has battled through in his career. Those injuries were a lot more serious than had been let on — doctors had told him to stop playing and…

  6. Report: Carmelo Anthony didn’t want J.R Smith on Knicks

    Mar 12, 2012, 12:10 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    That sound you hear all over Manhattan is the Knicks imploding. There are a lot of issues around the Knicks right now — except, surprisingly, their defense — but a lot of the issues at the heart of the current five-game losing streak tie back to chemistry and team make up. The Knicks assembled pieces…

  7. Monday And-1 links: Cavaliers rumors, Kobe passed and more

    Mar 12, 2012, 11:14 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    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). Byron Scott says he doesn’t want the Cavaliers to trade Ramon Sessions at the deadline. Consider this some “give us the first round pick or…

  8. Rockets’ Kyle Lowry out 2-4 weeks with bacterial infection

    Mar 12, 2012, 10:34 AM EST

    Kyle Lowry

    It was all a little weird. First Kyle Lowry tweeted that he was in pain and going to get an MRI, but that came back negative. Yet he spent a couple days in the hospital and was missing games. Now we have an answer — bacterial infection. A pretty scary answer. He will be out…

  9. Clippers not likely to get Ray Allen, won’t risk long term for short

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:48 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    It’s pretty easy to picture the Clippers as a serious threat to the Thunder in the West if they added Ray Allen — the Celtics sharp shooter who takes on the Clippers Monday night. The Clippers have struggled with production from the two guard spot since Chauncey Billups went down with an Achilles tendon injury.…

  10. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  11. Markieff Morris is slipping out of the Suns’ rotation

    Mar 12, 2012, 8:08 AM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Markieff Morris, a rookie forward the Suns selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, began the season with a level of competence that was above expectations. But as this lockout-shortened season has worn on, while the Suns have finally started to find themselves by winning seven of their last nine games,…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  13. Report: Chris Paul has nasal fracture, will wear mask just like you know who

    Mar 11, 2012, 10:21 PM EST

    cpmas

    It’s apparently a fad now. From the Los Angeles Times: Chris Paul warmed up for Sunday’s game against Golden State with a very familiar accessory. A Kobe mask. Paul was hit in the face during the first quarter of Friday’s game against San Antonio. A Clippers spokesman said that Paul received an X-ray on Saturday and it…

  14. Dwight Howard just wants to win. Which is why he’s refusing Chicago, still. Obviously. Because that makes sense.

    Mar 11, 2012, 9:40 PM EST

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Magic finally have a team they’re willing to trade with, who wants Dwight Howard. One problem, he doesn’t. Howard has long said that all that matters to him is winning. That that’s what’s important. Which is made clearly by the fact he doesn’t want to go to… Chicago?…

  15. Celtics Chris Wilcox out indefinitely with heart condition

    Mar 11, 2012, 9:07 PM EST

    Chris Wilcox, Brandon Bass

    A second key Celtic bench player may be lost for the season due to a heart condition. Chris Wilcox, maybe the Celtics best big man off the bench this season, did not travel with the team to Los Angeles (a close loss to the Lakers on Sunday vs. game against the Clippers on Monday) due…

  16. Video: Kobe Bryant nails game-winner over Celtics, watch the game to see he is clutch

    Mar 11, 2012, 6:28 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    In a game that, to be honest, wasn’t very well played, the Lakers pulled out another win over the Boston Celtics 97-4 in what is likely the end to the Big 3 vs. Big 3 matchup over the past four years (though Bynum was not a part of it for the first two years). It…

  17. The New York Knicks and a partisan divide

    Mar 11, 2012, 5:03 PM EST

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The New York Knicks lost their fifth straight Sunday, falling 106-94 to the Philadelphia Sixers in a game where the Sixers largely toyed with the Knicks for the fourth quarter. It’s not a surprise, downing sub-.500 teams by double-digits is kind of what Philly does this season. That’s their bread and butter. But of course,…

  18. Celtics-Lakers: 5 Things to Watch

    Mar 11, 2012, 2:34 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol drives between Boston Celtics Brandon Bass and Celtics Jermaine O'Neal in the first half of their NBA basketball game at TD Garden in Boston

    With the Lakers and Celtics renewing their epic rivalry this afternoon, it’s time to look ahead at what we’re witnessing when the two face-off at Staples Arena at 3:30 p.m. EST. It’s the NBA’s oldest, best, and most celebrated rivalry and despite the turning point both teams are facing in their history. Here are five…

  19. Andrew Bogut’s elbow is as good as it’s going to get.’

    Mar 11, 2012, 11:30 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Andrew Bogut‘s not angry with Milwaukee for not contending. He’s not demanding superstar talent alongside him or clamoring for the bright lights of a bigger city and the sponsorship money that comes with it. He’s not even requesting a trade. He’s just fine if it happens. And the reason for that is he just doesn’t…

  20. Lakers tell players to cool it with “external chatter”

    Mar 11, 2012, 9:30 AM EST

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    The Lakers held an informal meeting that developed out of a film session following their back-to-back losses to Detroit and Washington, ESPN reports. During the conversation, assistant coaches for the team asked players to refrain from “external chatter,” whatever that is, presumably about potential trades. From ESPN LA: “It wasn’t an airing out session,” Brown…
