  1. PBT Extra: Talking trade, Warriors with CSNBayArea’s Monte Poole

    Jan 15, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Orlando Magic

    The Golden State Warriors made a trade Wednesday to get Jordan Crawford out of Boston, upgrading their depth behind Stephen Curry — the kind of trade contenders make. On today’s PBT Extra myself and Monte Poole, the Warriors insider for CSNBayArea.com discuss that trade and what it means for Golden State — he thinks this sets…

  2. Boston assigns Rajon Rondo to D-League but just for workout

    Jan 15, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    There had been talk that the Boston Celtics would send Rajon Rondo to their D-League affiliate for a tune-up game, but that’s not what is happening here. Rondo is just traveling a long way for a workout. Boston officially assigned Rondo to the D-League’s Maine Red Claws on Wednesday but that is not likely to…

  3. Lance Stephenson’s alter ego “Sir Lancelot” wants you to vote for his man for All-Star Game (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Sir Lancelot is emphatic. If nothing else. A lot of players have gone to the Web with attempts at viral videos to get you to vote for them for the All-Star Game (Ty Lawson in Denver was the latest) but most are about as funny as Carrot Top. Lance Stephenson hit it out of the…

  4. Report: Warriors add Jordan Crawford for guard depth in three-team trade with Celtics, Heat

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    Golden State has been looking to add depth behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson all season — the offense has been down just slightly this season, and Warriors missed the spark Jarrett Jack brought off the bench last season (not to mention wanting to get Curry some reduced minutes in the second half of the…

  5. Report/rumor: Boston Celtics close to trading Jordan Crawford

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Jordan Crawford, Blake Griffin

    Rajon Rondo is returning soon, so the Boston Celtics must… Nothing, really. I guess they’ll have to move Keith Bogans to the inactive list, but that’s really the extent of it. Considering Bogans is excused from the team for personal reasons and rarely played prior to that, the move has no significance. The Celtics don’t…

  6. Celtics’ Jerryd Bayless gets warned for flopping (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:20 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Jerryd Bayless come on down, you’re the next contestant on “getting a league warning for flopping.” Who knows, maybe Bayless was just “LeBroning.” Either way, the league gave him an official warning Tuesday. The incident occurred Monday night (Jan. 13), when the Celtics were playing the Rockets. Jeremy Lin was bringing the ball up court…

  7. Rajon Rondo tweet hints he will return Friday vs. Lakers… in a very Rondo way

    Jan 14, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    We passed along a report last week that said Boston’s Rajon Rondo was targeting a return Jan. 17 — this Friday against the rival Los Angeles Lakers. A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com also said that date was the goal. Rondo basically confirmed that on twitter Monday night — but in a very Rondo way. 29,233,380…

  8. Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson out at least two months, could need surgery

    Jan 13, 2014, 11:02 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    It looked like things were not good when Ryan Anderson had to be carried off the court on a stretcher. We knew things were bad when the Pelicans said he would be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back. Now comes the news that Anderson will be out at least two months, and…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: New York teams rising but Pacers on top still

    Jan 13, 2014, 2:32 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    Here are the weekly PBT power rankings, with some improving teams out of New York. For you fans in Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Minnesota and Memphis — teams with dreams of the Western Conference playoffs — know that the pace right now is 47-48 wins just to get the 8 seed. Plan accordingly.   1. Pacers…

  10. Stephen Curry drains game winner to beat Celtics (VIDEO)

    Jan 11, 2014, 7:58 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Golden State Warriors

    I’m feeling a little prophetic. It was late in the fourth quarter Friday night and Boston’s Jeff Green had just made a nice play, driving toward the rim and hitting the little five-foot running jumper to tie the game against Golden State at 97-97. But that left 11 seconds for the Warriors and I had…

  11. Report: Rajon Rondo plans return Jan. 17 against Lakers

    Jan 10, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Boston is 13-23 this season and has been a solid defensive team — signs that Brad Stevens can coach at the NBA level (Brandon Bass told PBT he was impressed with the young mentor). The question has been: How good will the Celtics be with Rajon Rondo in the lineup? We may find out sooner…

  12. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  13. Timberwolves’ video campaigns for your Kevin Love All-Star Vote

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is going to be an All-Star, the coaches will select him as a reserve without a doubt. But the Timberwolves want you to vote him in as a starter. In the last vote update from the league, Love was about 22,000 votes behind Blake Griffin for the final starting spot in the Western…

  14. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  15. Blake Griffin does bad, bad thing to Kris Humphries (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:24 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics  v Los Angeles Clippers

    Daaaaaaaaamn. A couple of times a season Blake Griffin just puts some poor defender in a poster and there is nothing they can do about it. Boston’s Kris Humphries, come on down, you’re the next contestant on “Blake Griffin’s highlight reel.” I feel for Humphries, he has enough embarrassing videos out there on the Web…

  16. Whether with Celtics or youth and fitness, Brandon Bass is trying to lead by example

    Jan 8, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    It’s a tough year in Boston. Players are fighting through snow banks to get to a practice facility or games, but once inside it doesn’t feel a lot warmer. They are part of a 13-22 team that has lost eight of nine and as of today wouldn’t even make the playoffs is a sad Eastern…

  17. Jared Sullinger ejected for two flagrant fouls in 24 seconds (VIDEO)

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    On the bright side, Jared Sullinger was efficient in picking up flagrant fouls and getting ejected. The league is all about efficiency these days. The Celtics’ Sullinger was ejected from Boston’s blowout loss to the Nuggets Tuesday night for picking up two third-quarter technicals in the span of 24 seconds (you can see them above).…

  18. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

  19. PBT Podcast: Talking Bynum/Deng trade, plus an interview with Brandon Bass

    Jan 7, 2014, 10:36 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    We’re baaaaaaack. After taking some time off during the holidays Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio and I are back with the latest PBT Podcast and we discuss the topic of the day — the Andrew Bynum for Luol Deng trade and what that means for both the Bulls and the Cavaliers going forward. Then, after…

  20. It’s official: Grizzlies/Celtics/Thunder three-team trade involving Jerryd Bayless, Courtney Lee

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:39 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    For a couple days you’ve been reading about a potential Jerryd Bayless swap for Courtney Lee, with the Thunder jumping in to offload Ryan Gomes. Now it’s official, it has been announced by the teams. Here is who gets what: Memphis Grizzlies: Lee plus a 2016 second round pick from Boston. Boston Celtics: Bayless and…

  21. Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson out indefinitely with herniated disc in back

    Jan 7, 2014, 11:04 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    You knew it wasn’t good when he had to be taken off the court in a stretcher, you just wonder now if the Pelicans playoff hopes were carted off with him. The Pelicans’ leading scorer Ryan Anderson will be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back, the team announced Tuesday. The injury occurred…

  22. Will Cavaliers make the playoffs after trading for Luol Deng?

    Jan 7, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    luol deng

    The deal between the Bulls and the Cavaliers that went down Monday night was all about the long-term for Chicago, and more about this season in Cleveland. Luol Deng will be a free agent this summer, and after reportedly turning down a contract extension worth $30 million over three years, it was clear he was…

  23. Report: Thunder become third team in Grizzlies/Celtics swap of Bayless/Lee

    Jan 6, 2014, 9:09 PM EDT

    GOMES_RYAN

    We told you Sunday that it looked like the Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies were close to swapping Jerryd Bayless and Courtney Lee. Why do it? Because the Celtics would save money in future years and while they get another ball handling guard (which they could use while Rajon Rondo remains out) they really don’t…

  24. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  25. The Extra Pass: Why D’Antoni is the right man for the job; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni and Dwight Howard react on the sidelines as the Lakers trail the Los Angeles Clippers, and after Howard fouled out of the game, during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…
