    Jan 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA: Sacramento Kings at Miami Heat

    The Memphis Grizzlies traded Rudy Gay and reached the Western Conference Finals. The Toronto Raptors traded Gay and are streaking toward home-court advantage in the first-round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Regardless of anything Gay did, his perceived value dropped considerably in the last two years. But might Gay be taking control of his own…

  13. Monday night NBA grades: Big stars (Dwight Howard, ‘Melo) have big nights

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while checking out how the Earth will die… Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets. It all started because Jeremy Lin played well, pushing the tempo for the Rockets — Dwight Howard was the beneficiary of that as he got some easy buckets simply because he moved well. Howard…

  14. Marvin Williams nicknamed Alec Burks ‘Easy 20,’ which makes no sense

    Dec 17, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Alec Burks, Andre Miller

    Alec Burks scored a career-high 31 points against the Heat on Monday night, so let’s all overreact. That should be easy for Marvin Williams, who’s been overreacting to his Jazz teammate’s good play for a while. Via Aaron Falk of The Salt Lake Tribune: “He had a hell of a game,” Utah forward Marvin Williams…

    Dwight Howard

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

    trey burke finger

    Trey Burke is still going to get the chance to run the Utah Jazz offense, but it likely will be 2014 before he gets the opportunity now. We got an update Monday on Burke’s broken finger from Saturday’s preseason game — he is going to need surgery to put pins in said finger. That was…

  19. With Trey Burke sidelined, are Jazz in market for point guard?

    Oct 14, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    No sooner than I had picked Utah’s Trey Burke as my Rookie of the Year prediction, he goes and breaks a finger. Burke could be out 3-6 weeks, according to his father, but we don’t have anything official yet. Bottom line is he is missing the start of the season and could be out for…

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while talking about Anne Hathaway’s nipples….

  23. Should 0-4 Lakers be worried about preseason? Not really.

    Oct 17, 2012, 2:20 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant,  Kevin Murphy

    Do not take any results from the preseason seriously. I mean it. Don’t do it. The Sixers blew out the Celtics Monday night, but a game without Kevin Garnett (and Andrew Bynum) is not an accurate reflection of anything that you might see on the court in just a couple weeks. It just doesn’t matter.…

  24. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…
