  1. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Celtics 11-0 run closes out Pacers

    Mar 7, 2013, 9:52 AM EDT

    Jason Terry, Jordan Crawford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what live is like for a poor sultan…. Lakers 108, Hornets 102: The Lakers were down 25 in the third quarter, 18 entering the fourth. But then Kobe Bryant took over the offense and Dwight Howard the defense, the Hornets fell…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: Guys that got (or almost got) their team wins

    Mar 7, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Lots of close games, lots of crazy buzzer beaters on Wednesday night. But it wasn’t just the Jeff Greens and Klay Thompsons that got their team wins, it was others like the three guys below. Except for the Third Star, he tried but got undone by some guy named LeBron. Third Star: Nikola Vucevic (25…

  3. Blackhawks or Heat: Who ya got? A PHT-PBT original

    Mar 6, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    kanelebron

    As you may have heard, the Chicago Blackhawks are on quite a roll. As you also may have heard, so too are the Miami Heat. You may also have heard some national pundits yelling at clouds discussing which streak is more impressive — Chicago going 23 games without a regulation loss, or Miami winning 15 in a…

  4. Matt Barnes says there’s a double standard on NBA fines/suspensions

    Mar 5, 2013, 10:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Is Matt Barnes saying anything we weren’t all thinking? When the word came down that Serge Ibaka was not getting suspended for his foul hitting Blake Griffin in the crotch the NBA twitterverse did a collective, “Really?” I don’t think Ibaka intentionally hit Griffin in a place no man wants to be hit, he was…

  5. Blake Griffin references his time traveling Kia ads in response to hit from Serge Ibaka

    Mar 5, 2013, 9:19 PM EDT

    ibaka griffin

    If you watch even a little bit of NBA basketball, there’s no way you haven’t seen one of the Kia ads featuring Blake Griffin going back in time to give his younger self various tidbits of helpful information that will prepare him for the future that Griffin is dealing with now. Griffin has always been…

  6. LeBron, Wade wonder publicly why Serge Ibaka was not suspended

    Mar 5, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James and Wade react after a play against the Boston Celtics during the first half in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    When the news was released today that Serge Ibaka would be fined $25,000 for his below-the-belt hit on Blake Griffin during the Thunder’s win over the Clippers on Sunday, it wasn’t a shock that a suspension wasn’t handed down, but it was a bit of a surprise. The league hasn’t been afraid to retroactively drop…

  7. League downgrades J.J. Barea’s foul on Ray Allen, no fine/suspension

    Mar 5, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, J.J. Barea

    J.J. Barea may have body checked Ray Allen to the ground, but it wasn’t done in a “unnecessary and excessive” way. At least if you ask the league. Allen may feel differently. Barea’s foul on Allen was downgraded from a flagrant 2 to a flagrant 1 by the league — that means there will be…

  8. Thunder’s Ibaka fined $25K, not suspended, for blow to Griffin

    Mar 5, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    When you see the play above most people who are not Thunder faithful thought Serge Ibaka punched Blake Griffin in the groin and should have been ejected. But he wasn’t, it was ruled a flagrant 1 foul, and Ibaka went on to make key plays down the stretch (including drawing Griffin’s sixth foul) that helped…

  9. Kobe says he would have smacked Ibaka in the mouth after a foul like Griffin’s

    Mar 4, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    There are times it sounds like Kobe Bryant is channeling Dalton from “Roadhouse” — “pain don’t hurt.” With the Lakers having an off day after a win over the Hawks — and before a much tougher test with Thunder Tuesday — Kobe was asked about Sunday’s other talked about play at Staples Center where Serge…

  10. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Kobe pushes Lakers to .500

    Mar 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the wildest ending to a high school state championship game you will ever see… Lakers 99, Hawks 98: It took a phenomenal performance down the stretch from Kobe Bryant, after the Lakers gave back all of a 16-point third quarter lead…

  11. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe, LeBron, Westbrook spark wins

    Mar 4, 2013, 4:06 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, DeShawn Stevenson

    Some very familiar names on top of the three stars list to NBA fans tonight. Sorry to overlook Chandler Parsons dropping 32 out of the blue, or Carmelo Anthony getting 32 in a losing cause, or David West putting up an impressive 31 against the Bulls defense. But these guys had big games and sparked…

  12. Thunder overcome late rally by Clippers to win a physical one in Los Angeles

    Mar 3, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    ibaka griffin

    The Thunder and the Clippers are likely second round playoff opponents, should neither team be able to overtake the Spurs for the number one overall seed in the Western Conference. If it ends up happening, and if Sunday’s contest at Staples Center was any indication, we’d be in for a battle of epic proportions. Oklahoma…

  13. Greg Monroe not expecting Pistons contract extension, thinking 2014 free agency

    Mar 1, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe

    This summer the draft class of 2010 is eligible for contract extensions — teams with a star they want to lock up can do what the Thunder did with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, what the Clippers did with Blake Griffin, and so on. Give your franchise player the max. So who from that draft…

  14. Blake Griffin with the acrobatic left-handed throwdown against the Pacers (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Clippers were having no problem scoring inside against the Pacers on Thursday, but the points weren’t coming on the typical high-flying plays we’ve become accustomed to seeing from the Clippers this season. Midway through the third quarter, Blake Griffin changed all that. Griffin elevates and throws it down with the left hand, while being…

  15. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Kings take Heat two overtimes

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    LeBron James,

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while scrolling through the Florida Man twitter feed…. Heat 141, Kings 129 (2OT): What looked like a blowout on paper ended up being the best game of the night. The Kings may deny it was a moral victory for them, but it was.…

  16. Blake Griffin put on a dunking exhibition against Bobcats (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Bismack Biyombo

    If you’re going to beat the Clippers, you have to take away their ability to get easy baskets. The Bobcat’s didn’t. Blake Griffin was catching lobs and throwing them down all night from Chris Paul against the Charlotte “defense” and that was one of a few reasons the Clippers cruised to a 106-84 win. Above…

  17. Report: If Kevin Garnett wanted to join the Clippers, Chris Paul would have made it happen

    Feb 22, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    We know Kevin Garnett is intensely loyal, but Chris Paul and the Clippers certainly put that to the test at the deadline. Garnett’s situation was unique of other stars that didn’t get dealt at the deadline, mainly because of his no-trade clause. If he wanted to remain a Celtic, that was his prerogative. Despite what he…

  18. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  19. Report: Dwight Howard mocked Kobe Bryant in All-Star locker room

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s start out right here — take this report with a grain of salt. Actually, a handful of kosher salt. I say that because there was no buzz about this in Houston. I say take the salt because every NBA reporter in America who breaks these kind of stories was in Houston and it leaked…

  20. Chris Paul wins MVP of 2013 NBA All-Star game

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers holds up the MVP trophy after the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — Chris Paul took home the MVP trophy from the 2013 All-Star game, as he led the West to a 143-138 win in the NBA’s midseason exhibition, and did so in a contest that was close and competitive down the stretch. The award often times goes to the player who scores the most points…

  21. With CP3, Durant leading the way West wins tight All-Star Game

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Griffin of the Clippers dunks as teammate Durant and All-Star Noah of the Bulls look on during the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — You know it’s an All-Star Game and all the seriousness that entails when Dwight Howard is launching and hitting threes, Howard and Blake Griffin are pretending to do acrobatics between quarters and the understated Tim Duncan is wearing some bright green Adidas Crazy Fast shoes. “I think that’ll be the only time you…

  22. Chris Paul, Tony Parker make Chris Bosh look bad (VIDEO)

    Feb 17, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Paul of the Clippers takes the ball past All-Star Bosh of the Heat during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    Chris Bosh did not have a good first half. There was the 2-of-7 shooting with three airballs. There was some odd defensive choices like giving Chris Paul an uncontested layup to take away a potential lob to Blake Griffin. But these two plays by Paul and Tony Parker made him look worse than anything. Mocking…

    HOUSTON — Enough with the preliminaries — especially the pregame Ke$ha concert — let’s get on with the real show. Time for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. We’ve got this show covered for you. First, over on the mothership NBC site is a running log of everything tweeted by myself, PBT’s Brett Pollakoff, as well…

  24. Report: Clippers and Celtics still discussing a Kevin Garnett trade

    Feb 16, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    You may remember hearing some rumblings about this a few weeks back, but apparently the interest hasn’t died down. The Celtics and Clippers have been rumored as potential trade partners before, and that makes some sense. Boston is going to need to rebuild at some point, and the Clippers have a chance at a title…

  25. Blake Griffin, Kobe Bryant exchange dunks (VIDEO)

    Feb 15, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Anytime the Clippers play, you expect to see one quality dunk from Blake Griffin at least. And for the Lakers lately, Kobe Bryant is the only one you can count on to make quality plays every game. So Thursday night they exchanged some huge dunks. I think Kobe got the best of this dunk contest.…
