On Feb. 5, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Lakers, who literally ran out of players. That was the low point for Cleveland, which had already made its big splash by trading for Luol Deng and still lost six straight to fall to 12th – behind Boston! – in a putrid Eastern Conference. The season…

This is certainly not good not good for a rookie trying to carve out a spot in the NBA, but it’s not going to impact the Cavaliers rotation. Cleveland rookie Carrick Felix will be out 6-8 weeks with a stress fracture in his left knee, the team announced. The injury occurred while he was in…

NBA players are increasingly using cryotherapy, but to most of us, the actual process is a mystery. All I knew, thanks to the pain and suffering of Manny Harris, is not to wear wet socks during treatment. Otherwise, I was at a loss. But while covering the Cleveland Cavaliers on the West Coast, Mary Schmitt…

Stephen Curry gets most of the headlines, and he earns them. Just remove Andre Iguodala from the rotation and the Warriors become pedestrian (as we have seen). Andrew Bogut anchors it all down. However we shouldn’t leave Klay Thompson off the list. When you start to look at the Sports VU camera data from the…

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…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wakeboarding in a flooded garage…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. No Russell Westbrook. No Serge Ibaka. Nights like this Kevin Durant has to go supernova for the Thunder to have a chance and he did — 48 points overall, 11 in the fourth quarter…

Winner: Luol Deng Deng is going to a team that desperately needs him. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ small forwards have a PER of 9.2 and yield a PER of 15.5 to opposing small forwards, according to 82Games. That’s a horrific net PER of –6.3. Of the 150 positions in the NBA (five per team), only three have have…

Well, that didn’t even take two seasons. Apparently the Cleveland Cavaliers are considering moving on from the Kyrie Irving/Dion Waiters backcourt of the future, and you can be sure Irving isn’t the one going out the door. Which leads us to this tweet from Chris Broussard of ESPN: Sources: Cavs shopping Dion Waiters. They've spoken…

The names in the headline may not be all that familiar, but the highlight is just as worthy as those featuring the game’s biggest stars. Early on in the Pacers’ win over the Cavaliers on Saturday, C.J. Miles got loose on the fast break. Orlando Johnson was back and decided to contest, and it’s worth…

This is how it is around the NBA right now: Some teams still have a roster space or two available, others do not, and there is a cluster of pretty talented players trying to get those spots. Even just the spots that are an invite to a training camp where they stand little to no…

There were some rumors floating around not that long ago that the Sacramento Kings were shopping Jimmer Fredette, and that the Cavaliers might have been interested. But Cleveland is seemingly stocked at the guard positions, and while Fredette remains a decent option that may be expendable in Sacramento, Cleveland isn’t a team that would be…

Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while figuring out what’s in and what’s out for 2013… Nets 110, Thunder 93: Well, P.J. Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

We enter 2013 off a week where the two best teams in the East — Miami and New York — looked sloppy while the teams at the top of the Western Conference looked strong and took over the top spots in the weekly rankings. 1. Clippers (25-6, Last week ranked No. 1). The win streak…
