    Dec 29, 2013, 12:28 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    If you’re the Atlanta Hawks and you need a three, you design a play for Kyle Korver. Which they did. Thing is, the Charlotte Bobcats are a solid defensive team and up three with 11.8 seconds left when they saw Korver get the ball they triple-teamed him. Korver dished to Pero Antic in the corner…

  2. 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.…

  3. 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…

  4. Kyrie Irving, Jeff Teague have point guard duel down stretch (VIDEO)

    Dec 27, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kyrie Irving was just a scoring machine — 40 points on 33 shots against the Hawks on Thursday night, with 12 of those coming in the second overtime when he went 5-of-6 from the floor. Irving was driving the lane, hitting step backs, generally just doing whatever he wished. The Hawks’ Jeff Teague answered him…

  5. The Extra Pass: A big test for the Clippers; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Pressure reveals character, and the last minutes of the Clippers road matchup with Portland did just that. Down the stretch, both teams played perfectly to their strengths. The Blazers ran everything through LaMarcus Aldirdge (32 points) on the left block, surrounding him with three-point shooters and daring the Clippers to double. The Clippers, meanwhile, put the…

  6. Thursday night NBA grades: Teague, Aldridge play big in overtime

    Dec 27, 2013, 4:04 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing the Breaking Bad game… Jeff Teague, Atlanta Hawks. Teague had a nice game before entering overtime — he had 22 points and 7 assists in regulation. However, he finished with 12 points and 3 assists in the extra 10 minutes and controlled the…

  7. Atlanta’s Al Horford injures shoulder, does not return to game

    Dec 27, 2013, 3:08 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Atlanta is the third best team in the East, gut that could fall if they were to miss Al Horford for any length of time. Horford injured his right shoulder during the first overtime against the Cavaliers. He was trying to reach around and knock down an inbounds pass only to hurt his shoulder in…

  8. Hawks’ Jeff Teague drains double OT game winner to sink Cavs (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    Jeff Teague

    Jeff Teague everyone. The Hawks point guard came off a massive double, elevator-style screen to get a clean look at a three that beat the Cavaliers 127-125 Thursday night. Kyrie Irving had 40 points and 9 dimes in this one, but Teague’s shot is thee one you’ll be talking about.

  9. Monday night NBA grades: LeBron James flashes his MVP credentials

    Dec 24, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about NBA Jam legend Mike Iuzzolino…  LeBron James, Miami Heat. No Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh left late in the game after Paul Millsap elbowed his jaw. Other Heat players struggled (we’re looking at you, Mario Chalmers). Yet there was LeBron James to carry the…

  10. LeBron James just destroys Paul Millsap with dunk (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2013, 10:37 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

    Credit the Hawks’ Paul Millsap for trying to make the right play, he slides over and tries to draw the charge on LeBron James. But he just ends up in another LeBron highlight. After the game — where the Heat beat the Hawks in OT — in a televised interview LeBron joked about having a…

  11. Mark Cuban will wait to offer solution to Mavericks’ lack of free throws, postponing inevitable fine

    Dec 22, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    The Mavericks have the NBA’s third-worst free-throw-attempt rate, which is free throws attempts per field-goal attempt. Is that because they’re a jump-shooting team? Is that because they shy away from contact? Or is that because the referees are out to get them? Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, via Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News: “There’s…

  12. Andre Drummond thanks Dwight Howard for dominating him

    Dec 22, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond, Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard posted up Andre Drummond. Howard rebound over Drummond. Howard passed around Drummond. When it was all over, Howard had 35 points on 13-of-18 shooting, 19 rebounds and five assists in the Rockets win over the Pistons on Saturday. Any talk that Howard has lost his place as the NBA’s best center should be…

  13. The Extra Pass: Golden State’s Elevator Screen plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  14. The Extra Pass: The Clippers’ “Rosie” Screen; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Over the next few days in this space, we’ll break down a play that’s largely unique to one team. To kick off this signature series, we’ll start with the Los Angeles Clippers’ “Ring-Around-The-Rosie” screen. Innovation in the NBA is often about adding little wrinkles to something very simple. There are no “Wildcat” offenses that take…

  15. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  16. Al Horford drains fadeaway in OT to beat Wizards (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2013, 12:15 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    Washington defended that pretty well, just a better shot by a very good player. Tied 99-99 in OT, the Hawks had 1.8 seconds to get off a shot, so it looked like double OT. Al Horford sets a couple (pretty soft) screens on the strong side then fades away to the weak side by the…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  18. Paul Millsap hits a shot to beat first quarter buzzer vs. Cavs (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:47 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Russell Westbrook wasn’t the only one showcasing his range under pressure on Friday. Paul Millsap of the Hawks heaved a shot from well beyond half court to beat the first quarter buzzer against the Cavaliers, and it found nothing but the bottom of the net. We’d like to tell you that this particular heave mattered…

  19. Kyle Korver breaks record for consecutive games making a three (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 9:23 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Ray Allen couldn’t do it. Neither could Reggie Miller or Stephen Curry or any of the other three-point marksman you can name. Kyle Korver has now made a three in 90 consecutive games, breaking the record Dana Barros set in 1996. He did it midway through the first quarter from above the break on the…

  20. Kyle Korver will fire from arc Friday to set new NBA all-time three point streak

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Dana Barros, a little point guard out of Massachusetts who got to play for the Celtics as part of a 14-year NBA career, and while there he set a record: Eighty-nine consecutive games with a made three. If Kyle Korver knocks down a three Friday night when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers Korver will…

  21. The Extra Pass: A Google goggle revolution dream, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  22. Wednesday night NBA Grades: LaMarcus Aldridge is a flat out stud

    Dec 5, 2013, 2:20 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Our nightly look around the NBA, or what you missed while figuring out how to use lasers to mark the first down line in the a football game…. LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. For my money right now he is the best power forward in the game. I’d rather have him over Kevin Love or…

  23. Wednesday And-1 Links: Former NBAer Keon Clark sentenced to 8 years in prison

    Dec 4, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT

    Keon Clark smiles

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Former NBA player Keon Clark has been sentenced to 8 years in prison,…

  24. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    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.…

  25. Tim Duncan with the cold-blooded game winner over Hawks (VIDEO)

    Dec 2, 2013, 11:07 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    That’s about as much emotion as Tim Duncan shows on the court. Duncan became the oldest player in NBA history to notch a 20-20 (23 points, 21 rebounds) and he capped it off with this game winner to lift the Spurs over the Hawks Monday night, 102-100. So much for the struggling Duncan we had…
