    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.

    Mike Dunleavy, James Harden

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while applying for maybe the best journalism job out there…. Mike Dunleavy, Chicago Bulls. Don’t make Mike Dunleavy angry.

    Mar 10, 2014, 12:13 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    As a member of the Jazz, Al Jefferson once encouraged Utah fans to boo their own team. When he returned to Utah in December as a Charlotte Bobcat, Jazz fans cheered him. Now, another former Utah big man, Paul Millsap, is encouraging Jazz fans to boo him when he returns with the Atlanta Hawks. Paul…

  7. Is Carmelo Anthony’s smart play to opt in and play out contract with Knicks?

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

    Mar 6, 2014, 3:31 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Detroit Pistons

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while suing a casino for letting you bet big while drunk…. Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls. Friend of this site Coach Nick called watching Noah play “coach porn” — he plays with a high IQ, he is focused on defense, he can pass, he moves off…

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  11. 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…

  12. Tuesday night NBA grades: DeMar DeRozan is the Raptors go to guy

    Feb 26, 2014, 2:32 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had watched the Winter Olympics in a snow fort…  DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He is the guy the Raptors go to in the fourth and what’s different than the Rudy Gay era is how he gets his points — it’s not isolations.…

  13. Hawks lose All-Star Paul Millsap for at least two games

    Feb 24, 2014, 7:17 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Memphis Grizzlies

    The Atlanta Hawks are sliding — they lost eight in a row before running into the slump buster that is the Knicks Saturday. But that slide could continue with now that the Hawks will have to go without All-Star Paul Millsap for a couple of games due to a bruised right knee. The Atlanta Journal…

  14. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  15. Andre Drummond throws down a monster fast break slam, Coach Sheed celebrates hard on the bench (VIDEO)

    Feb 22, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace

    Rasheed Wallace was always a fan favorite during his playing days, not only because of the way the talented big man played the game, but mainly because of the unbridled emotion he showed while doing so. Sure, Wallace often led the league in technical fouls, but his passion for the game came through on a…

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    And now comes the annual tradition of waiving players acquired on trade deadline day you didn’t really want… Antawn Jamison, come on down, you’re next. The Atlanta Hawks have waived Jamison, the team announced. If he clears waivers in 48 hours (as is expected) he will become a unrestricted free agent. Jamison was traded to…

  17. 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…

    Feb 17, 2014, 2:43 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    Once again, the Knicks are considering slicing away part of their future flexibility for a quick fix now.

    BgUeRJkCYAAV5cp

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy jeans for an Olympic skier… DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors.

  21. 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…

  22. Hawks’ Antic out of All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge, Suns’ Plumlee in

    Feb 7, 2014, 5:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Pero Antic was a guy not a lot of NBA fans have seen much of, the Hawks reserve big man who is really a stretch 4/5 (57 percent of his shots have been threes), but he’s a guy with real potential in the league. He’s also a guy with a stress fracture in his right…

    Indiana Pacers v Denver Nuggets

    A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…
