  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Spurs finish season on top

    Apr 14, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    Spurs close out the season on top, but can they beat the Thunder in a playoff series? Can the Thunder get through the gauntlet in front of them to get a showdown with the Spurs?

  3. Hawks management would like to make the playoffs, but it’s not that big a deal

    Apr 3, 2014, 2:15 PM EDT

    Mike Budenholzer, Mike Scott, Jeff Teague

    Hawks management is focused on the big picture, not getting in a spot to get swept by the Heat in the first round. But are they missing something?

  4. Al Horford makes it official: He will not be back for playoffs

    Mar 14, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    This was expected when Atlanta Hawks big man Al Horford tore his pectoral muscle, he had to have surgery and was done for the season. But with the Hawks playing better than expected for rookie coach Mike Budenholzer — thanks to an All-Star year from Paul Millsap — Atlanta is going to be a playoff…

  5. Hawks’ Gustavo Ayon has shoulder surgery, done for season

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:50 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    After Al Horford went down for the season, Gustavo Ayon was one of the guys who soaked up those minutes and has played decent ball in that role. Make that had played — Ayon is done for the season after right shoulder surgery, the team announced Friday. In his last 10 games Ayon averaged 21…

  6. Clippers trade Antawn Jamison to Hawks, Byron Mullens to 76ers

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:13 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Antawn Jamison hasn’t filled the stretch-four role the Clippers hoped he would this season. He’s played in only one of the Clippers last 17 games (a 45-point win over the 76ers). Though Jamison has just a minimum contract, that’s still more money than the Clippers need to spend on someone with no upside and no…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  8. United States draws into soft group for basketball World Cup this summer

    Feb 3, 2014, 3:48 PM EDT

    via FIBA.com

    This is pretty much the opposite of what happened to USA Soccer for the World Cup. Pools for the first round of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, taking place in Spain this summer, were drawn Monday and the USA landed in probably the easiest group. The USA is in Group C with the Dominican Republic,…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  10. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

  11. NBA postpones Pistons at Hawks due to snowstorm that shut down Atlanta

    Jan 29, 2014, 11:11 AM EDT

    Atlanta snow

    Atlanta is not a city braced for major snowstorms and it got hit by a big one — it had paralyzed the city (and much of the south) and left a couple school children stranded in a bus overnight, trapped in and unable to move during the snowfall. In the wake of all that the…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  13. Hawks’ Pero Antic out 2-4 weeks with stress fracture in right ankle

    Jan 23, 2014, 4:52 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Since Al Horford went down for the season the Hawks have leaned pretty heavily on rookie Pero Antic — and he’s been solid. In the last three games he’s averaged better than 12 points and 7 rebounds playing at least 23 minutes a night, and on the season he is shooting 36.7 percent from three.…

  14. LeBron admits Wade’s time off, other injuries throwing off Heat’s rhythm

    Jan 22, 2014, 2:55 PM EDT

    Boston at Miami

    Miami has won two of its last three games, but they haven’t exactly looked impressive doing it. They had to go to overtime against the Bobcats, sandwiched in a loss when they gave up 121 to the Atlanta Hawks (without Al Horford), then Tuesday night struggled past the Boston Celtics. Not long ago there was…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  16. The Extra Pass: 2013-14 Eastern Conference All-Star reserve picks; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Jan 17, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    The 2013-14 All-Star game in New Orleans is still 30 days away, but the starters will be announced January 23rd and the reserves will follow on January 30th. There’s only a few days of voting left, and since I’m not good with hashtags or 140 character limits or following directions, I thought I’d put my…

  17. Report: Toronto looking to hang on to Kyle Lowry, make playoff run

    Jan 11, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Miami Heat

    Toronto has a legitimate shot at making the second round of the playoffs. Yes, it’s because they are in the Leastern Conference, but there a .500 team (17-17) can lead the Atlantic Division and host a first-round playoff series. Frankly since the addition-by-subtraction Rudy Gay trade the Raptors (winners of six of their last eight)…

  18. Kevin Garnett explains Joe Johnson’s nickname: ‘Joe Jesus’

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Brooklyn Nets

    Kevin Garnett used to play with someone nicknamed Jesus Shuttlesworth, but Garnett has tried to erase Ray Allen from his life. Now, Garnett is playing with a new teammate he calls Jesus: Joe Johnson. “He might not be there when you call on him, but he’s there when you need him,” Garnett said in the…

  19. The Extra Pass: Winners, losers from Bynum/Deng trade (plus Monday’s recaps)

    Jan 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Winner: Luol Deng Deng is going to a team that desperately needs him. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ small forwards have a PER of 9.2 and yield a PER of 15.5 to opposing small forwards, according to 82Games.  That’s a horrific net PER of –6.3. Of the 150 positions in the NBA (five per team), only three have have…

  20. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  21. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

  22. Report: Al Horford to have surgery on torn pectoral, done for season

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    And if you had any hope in Atlanta of everything coming together just in time for the playoffs… sorry. Center and team MVP Al Horford will have surgery on his torn pectoral muscle ending his season, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo Sports. Horford was expected to miss most of the season, this simply makes it…

  23. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Even without Westbrook Thunder take top spot

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    It’s legitimate to question how well Oklahoma City will fair in the roughly 27 games they will play without Russell Westbrook, but so far so good and that slides the to the top of the last power rankings of 2013. 1. Thunder (25-5, Last Week No. 2). They won all their games last week, but…

  24. LeBron James strains groin, questionable for Saturday vs. Portland

    Dec 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    If you were looking forward to a full strength Miami Heat team taking on the Trail Blazers Saturday, you may be disappointed. LeBron James strained his groin in the second quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Kings Friday night and is questionable for the anticipated Saturday showdown, so reports Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report.…

  25. Hawks’ Al Horford tore pectoral muscle, out indefinitely

    Dec 27, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of only three teams in the Eastern Conference over .500 is now without its star player for a significant amount of time. The Atlanta Hawks confirmed that Al Horford completely tore his right pectoral muscle on the play above, a simple defensive effort trying to deny an inbounds pass during the overtime of the…
