  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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).…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

    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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Report: Suns to sign Leandro Barbosa to 10-day contract

    Jan 5, 2014, 11:00 PM EDT

    BARBOSA_LEANDRO

    Leandro Barbosa played seven seasons for the Phoenix Suns, and was a member of the 2010 team that finished the season two games away from making it to the NBA Finals. Barbosa has bounced around since then, playing for the Raptors, Pacers and Celtics over the past three seasons. The recent injury to Eric Bledsoe,…

  18. Report: Celtics trading Courtney Lee to Grizzlies for Jerryd Bayless

    Jan 5, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Despite the Celtics getting out to a better than expected start to the season, they’re still a team in a full-fledged rebuilding mode, which we’re reminded of by the news of the team’s latest trade. Marc Stein of ESPN.com has the details: Boston Celtics, I’m told, are in advanced discussions on a trade to acquire…

  19. Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson leaves on a stretcher in Boston (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:36 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    Scary moment in Boston on Friday, when the Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson was carted off the floor on a stretcher after a collision with Gerald Wallace of the Celtics. Anderson appeared to be talkative and moving all limbs throughout the process, and gave a thumbs up as he left the floor which we hope is a…

  20. Rondo says he ‘might pop up and just play’ in D-League before returning to Celtics

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo heading to the D-League to get some work in was an idea that was made public a few days ago by Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. The D-League has historically been used as a player development tool more than a place for players to find their way back from injury, and it would…

  21. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

  22. Keith Bogans frustrated by lack of playing time this season with Celtics

    Jan 2, 2014, 8:21 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans may not be a household name in the NBA, but in recent years he’s become a serviceable veteran that a team could trust on the floor for around 19 minutes per contest. Bogans appeared in 74 games for the Nets a season ago, and started in 23 of them. He was included in…

  23. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Even without Westbrook Thunder take top spot

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    It’s legitimate to question how well Oklahoma City will fair in the roughly 27 games they will play without Russell Westbrook, but so far so good and that slides the to the top of the last power rankings of 2013. 1. Thunder (25-5, Last Week No. 2). They won all their games last week, but…

  24. Rajon Rondo could eventually head to D-League for some rehab

    Dec 30, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo is working his way back from his torn ACL and while he is working out it could well be a month before we see him step on an NBA court. But we might see him on a D-League court sooner. It what would be a rare move, the Celtics are considering sending Rondo…

  25. Boston’s Kris Humphries almost takes shot at own hoop (VIDEO)

    Dec 30, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Boston Celtics

    Almost Kris Humphries. Almost. In the first quarter of the Cavaliers/Celtics game Sunday there was a jump ball on the Cleveland end of the court. Boston won the tip to Humphries and while everyone else went back up the court he spun and was about to shoot… then caught himself. Barely. That would have been…
