    Indiana Pacers players stand during a time out in an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    SEASON RECORDS Atlanta: 44-38, six seed in East Indiana: 49-32, third seed in East SEASON SERIES Tied at 2-2. The Hawks won the first two, the Pacers the final two.

  2. Joakim Noah’s still hurting foot could be key to Bulls/Nets

    Apr 18, 2013, 5:23 PM EST

    Joakim Noah

    The Chicago Bulls are a trendy upset pick over the Brooklyn Nets in the first round of the playoffs (if the five seed beating the four is really an upset). The theory goes that the size of the Bulls front line — Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, Taj Gibson — can protect the paint and the…

  3. Who can knock off Miami? NBA playoff power rankings

    Apr 18, 2013, 8:49 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    If you want to hold the Larry O’Brien trophy — the one that goes to the NBA champions each June — you’re going to have to pry it out of Miami’s cold, dead hands. Good luck. They are the defending champs. They had the best regular season record in the NBA despite coasting to start…

  4. 81 games into season, Carlesimo says Blatche not in shape

    Apr 16, 2013, 1:55 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets

    Andre Blatche is having the best season of his career — sure, he’s scored more than his 10.1 points a game but he has been an efficient center off the bench for the Nets behind Brook Lopez. Look at it this way, his PER jumped from a “maybe he should be in the D-League” 10.7…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Jazz win keeps playoff dream alive

    Apr 16, 2013, 7:59 AM EST

    Al Jefferson, Ricky Rubio, Greg Stiemsma

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games.

Jazz 96, Timberwolves 80: Utah needed to win to keep its playoffs hopes…

  6. Joakim Noah’s plantar fasciitis will bother him into playoffs

    Apr 11, 2013, 10:52 PM EST

    Florida Gulf Coast v Florida

    At this time of year, it can be difficult to tell which injuries are serious and which are listed by teams because they want to rest players and avoid fines. Joakim Noah has played only one game since March 21, so his injury definitely was serious, though it’s unclear to what degree the Bulls are…

  7. Baseline-to-baseline recaps: Heat set franchise record for wins, Lakers remain in playoff position

    Apr 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting for Microsoft Office to come to your mobile devices … Lakers 113, Trail Blazers 106: Kobe Bryant scored 47 points to out-duel rookie Damian Lillard, who finished with 38.

  9. In case you missed them: Nate Robinson’s and Andre Iguodala’s game winners (VIDEO)

    Apr 5, 2013, 11:11 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    Just three games on Thursday but two of them came down to the final seconds and saw game winners. Andre Iguodala had the ball in his hand at the end for the Nuggets (that’s going to happen with Ty Lawson out) and he shows off a sweet crossover and move to hit the shot in…

  10. Nate Robinson’s game winner lifts Bulls over Nets

    Apr 4, 2013, 11:55 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s not all about that last shot. But that’s still an impressive last shot. If this is a potential four/five seed matchup in in the East — and it would be if the playoffs started tomorrow — it exposed the Nets need to find a way to get Deron Williams making plays and winning them…

  11. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Night of wild finishes all over NBA map

    Mar 21, 2013, 9:19 AM EST

    Marc Gasol, Kevin Durant

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while reading the oral history of Ace of Bass’ one hit…. Heat 98, Cavaliers 95: Crazy game. I mean certifiable, off its meds kind of game. Starting with a 40-minute delay at the start to fix a coolant leak in the scoreboard that…

  12. Three Stars of the Night: Go big or go home

    Mar 21, 2013, 1:34 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    A couple Hawks – Al Horford (26 points and 15 rebounds) and Jeff Teague (27 points and 11 rebounds) – played well as Atlanta jockeys for playoff positioning with the Bucks, but we’re less concerned with the bottom half of the Eastern Conference playoff picture than a vintage performance by an all-time great, helping a…

  15. Brook Lopez posterizes brother Robin (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2013, 9:38 PM EST

    Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez

    We bring you some Lopez on Lopez violence. Brook Lopez trailed the play up the court and got the ball out at the top of the key with no defender on him, so he attacked as the All-Star is known to do. Robin was slow to recognize and react to the play, as he is…

  16. Dwight Howard returns to Orlando, which will be fine without him

    Mar 12, 2013, 12:47 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Tuesday night will be cathartic for some Magic fans — Dwight Howard returns to Orlando and they will get to lustily boo the guy who left them. The guy they feel screwed them and the franchise over. Magic fans can sing “Forget You” at the top of their lungs. They can boo the Lakers as…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Knicks take night off (except they had a game)

    Carmelo Anthony

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

    Mar 1, 2013, 8:33 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

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.…

  20. Carlesimo admits benching Lopez against Grizzlies was mistake

    Feb 26, 2013, 12:08 PM EST

    Brook Lopez, P.J. Carlesimo

    Brook Lopez was in a mini-slump following All-Star Weekend in Houston. That happens. The players are pulled 50 different directions during the day and then there are parties every night. But a week after that game, on Sunday night, the Nets were locked in a low-scoring affair with the Memphis Grizzlies, a team with a…

  21. Three Stars of the Night: No Average Joes

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:11 AM EST

    Brooklyn Nets Johnson smiles on the bench after leaving their NBA basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder, in Oklahoma City

    Wasn’t Monday night awful? No NBA games being played brought back some serious lockout flashbacks, but Tuesday night was just the remedy. Nine games were on the slate to welcome us back from the All-Star break, and there were some impressive performances put up. Tony Parker rattled off 30 points and 11 assists in a…

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:43 AM EST

    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…

  23. Nets’ GM King believes in Deron Williams. Not that he has a choice.

    Feb 12, 2013, 10:48 AM EST

    Deron Williams

    The Nets are invested in Deron Williams. He was the first star they got, trading with the Utah Jazz in a surprise move before they had moved out of New Jersey. They worked hard to keep him and gave him a max contract. Now he’s finally got some healthy other stars around him such as…

  24. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EST

  25. Three Stars of the Night: Stretching Out

    Feb 12, 2013, 12:50 AM EST

    Josh Smith

    The stretch big man has come a long way. I distinctly remember watching Sam Perkins play with the Lakers and Sonics through the 90’s and wondering how someone so big could shoot it from the perimeter so well. It was a little jarring to see. Perkins was 6-foot-10, about 235 pounds, and his eyes always…
