Portland needed shooting and depth and they got it in one package, this is a win for them.

This year’s Nuggets will be much better than last year’s version just by being healthy, but are they a playoff team?

Terry was never going to be a fit in Sacramento, but could be a nice veteran addition for a Rockets team that plans on contending next season.

Houston, firmly in playoff hunt, could use a Jeremy Lin replacement at backup point guard

From Elfrid Payton (No. 10) to Cory Jefferson (No. 60), who was dealt twice, last night’s draft featured 19 traded picks

The Cavaliers really do like Scotty Hopson, a 6’7” two guard from Tennessee last seen playing in Turkey. However, they gave him a big deal to set him up as trade bait around the NBA Draft.

As if his season hasn’t been a big enough disappointment, Cleveland’s No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett will miss at least 10 games with a knee strain.

Luol Deng joined the Cleveland Cavaliers just in time for a four-game Western Conference road trip, which ends tonight in Denver. The Cavaliers have gone 2-2 so far, a stellar mark for a team that was 12-23 prior. Deng is clearly finding his stride offensively. In the last two games, a loss to the Portland…

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…

Mike Brown is a defensive minded coach. That is his reputation. If you see the Cavaliers as a playoff team in the East (and I do) then you are counting on a healthy Kyrie Irving, somebody stepping up in the frontcourt, and Mike Brown improving a defense that was 27th in the NBA in points…

Since LeBron James bolted Cleveland for Miami, the small forward spot has been a black hole for the Cavaliers. There was Jamario Moon. Then Omri Casspi. Then Alonzo Gee, who is still on the roster. Now Earl Clark is getting a shot. Not exactly a murderer’s row. The Cavaliers have built a team they like…

Strangest. Game. Ever… or at least this season. Rod Serling should have done the play-by-play. In the end, Miami escaped Cleveland with a 98-95 win that extends their winning streak to 24 games. That’s what the history books will show. But like life, this game was not about the results, it was about the journey.…

Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while checking out what porn stars look like without makeup… Heat 98, Hawks 81: If Tuesday night was any indication, the Hawks should want to win enough games from here on out to avoid slipping to the eighth seed and getting the Heat…

Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting five days for that goat cheese fire to butn itself out… Thunder 109, Clippers 98: This was a four-point game at the half, then Kevin Durant happened. The Clippers were without their star in Chris Paul — bruised knee — but…

Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while having to deal with all the people knocking on your door asking for their lost cell phones…. Heat 92, Warriors 75: As it has been with the Heat all season long, when they are focused and defend they destroy teams. Especially teams…

The Hawks came into Friday night’s home contest against the Cavaliers riding a six-game winning streak, although a closer look at the teams they played during that stretch would reveal that it really wasn’t one that was terribly impressive. Atlanta recorded maybe one quality win in those six games, which came against the Clippers. But…

It was an awkward play Saturday night — Cleveland’s Alonzo Gee was driving the lane and Miami’s Udonis Haslem stepped in to take the charge. Haslem was knocked backwards and fell into Shane Battier’s right knee, and Battier went to the ground grabbing it. Battier left the game and did not return. He tweeted out…

The Cavaliers had no business being in this game with the Heat, in Miami, without the injured Kyrie Irving. But they weren’t only in it, they were on track to win it — until the final two minutes, when it all fell apart. The Heat beat Cleveland 110-108 on Saturday, but they waited until almost…

Kyrie Irving played a fantastic game to lead the Cavaliers to a win over the Clippers Monday — 24 points, 10 assists and he had the dagger three at the end (when for some reason DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe both backed off him and gave him a clean look with the game on the…

Last season: Despite the ugly record of 21-45, there was hope last season in Cleveland in the name of Kyrie Irving. The No. 1 draft pick out of Duke was Rookie of the Year and looked like a future All-Star. (Then he carried that over to his performance with the USA Select Team this summer…
