  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  2. However you build it, U.S. Olympic team will be very good

    Jan 17, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Krzyzewski & Kobe Bryant

    We don’t know exactly what the U.S. Olympic team will look like in London. We know the pool of players — the 20 finalists — the roster will come from. And we know a couple other things: Mike Krzyzewski and staff have some hard choices ahead of them. This team will be very, very good.…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe passed with the game on the line

    Jan 17, 2012, 3:38 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Kobe Bryant,

    What you missed while trying to figure out how to pay off your $44 million hospital bill…. Thunder 97, Celtics 88: Boston’s fifth loss in a row was our game of the night. Lakers 73, Mavericks 70: The Lakers won this game — and were the better shooting team — hitting 38.2 percent of their…

    Jan 16, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Just a quick injury update on a couple NBA stars for your Monday: • Derrick Rose is out as his Bulls face off against the Grizzlies in Memphis. His injured toe is still giving him trouble, here is the quote via K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “Almost every game, I jam it. By the…

  6. Clippers showing a lot of room for improvement… and still winning

    Jan 15, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Chris Paul is still trying to get his guys to know what he wants them to do. Chauncey Billups is still firing away without enough consideration and dribbling like he’s the point guard at times. Caron Butler is still finding his legs. DeAndre Jordan is still adapting to being the anchor of the defense down…

  7. Winderman: League needs to clarify questionable calls for all teams, not just the Heat

    Jan 12, 2012, 10:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    By now you’ve read how @NBAOfficial confirmed what was apparent from the moment LeBron James went in six different directions (with six different steps) after giving up his dribble late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s overtime loss to the Clippers: That he traveled before he received a bailout foul call, one that enabled him…

  8. Chris Bosh would like Dwyane Wade taking the last shot

    Jan 12, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Recently, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh was interviewed by GQ’s Mark Anthony Green, and he had some interesting (and relevant) things to say about who should be taking a hypothetical “last shot” for the Heat in a close game: GQ: Quick hypothetical, toes aside: Let’s say the game was tied. 10 seconds left. You had…

  9. Andre Miller wants to start somewhere, not back up Lawson

    Jan 12, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Shannon Brown, Marcin Gortat, Andre Miller

    Ty Lawson is the starting point guard on the Denver Nuggets. Which is how it should be as he is the best point guard on the Denver Nuggets. But veteran Andre Miller thinks he should be starting somewhere,  he told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. And if the free agent to be can’t do that…

  10. Report: Team USA sets 19 players for preliminary Olympic roster

    Jan 10, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    The USA will send 12 men to London this summer to suit up and defend America’s gold medal from the last Olympic games. And that dozen will come from these 19 guys, according Chris Sheridan at SheridanHoops.com who broke the story of the preliminary roster. We’ve broken them out by position (they are alphabetical in their…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Knicks have the same record

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:14 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    What you missed while watching West Virginia score more first half points than 15 the NBA teams playing last night (seriously)…. Bobcats 118, Knicks 110: Boris Diaw outplayed Amare Stoudemire. Gerald Henderson took it to Landry Fields at every turn. The Charlotte Bobcats outworked a Knicks team that has a lot of talent but looks…

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Dwyane Wade is eating Chlorophyll as part of his new diet. Seriously. Is Zach Randolph’s knee injury worse than the Grizzlies first let on? We…

  13. Video: Mo Williams starts, gets introduced by wrong name

    Jan 1, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Mo Williams Clippers

    Mo Williams is not having a great couple of years. He went from starting point guard for the regular season’s top team in the East to scapegoat for why LeBron James left Cleveland to starting for one of the worst teams in the league. Then he was traded to the Clippers, and then he lost…

  14. Wednesday And-1 links, where Nets fans want Dwight Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Nets fans started a chant of “we want Howard” at the team’s home opener Tuesday. No, Deron Williams did not start it. As far as…

  15. Five things we learned watching the NBA on Christmas

    Dec 26, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Heat forward James and guard Wade laugh during the closing minutes against the Mavericks in Dallas, Texas

    The NBA gave five Christmas day presents to the fans… which were really more like belated birthday gifts disguised as Christmas gifts because we should have opened the NBA season on Nov. 1. But we’ll forgive and move on, like we do with family around the holidays. We’re just glad to have the NBA back.…

  16. Chris Paul is really good, which makes Clippers better than Warriors

    Dec 26, 2011, 6:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    For three-plus quarters, the Clippers did not look like the Golden Child, the team anointed to take over Los Angles, lob city, Western Conference contenders. Their half court offensive execution was unimpressive and Chauncey Billups suddenly had the shot selection of a rookie. Then Chris Paul took over the game. In the final 6:07 of…

    Clippers' Paul sails to the basket as Lakers' players watch during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The Knicks don’t make sense. ***************************** Every team’s fans are defensive of their squad. I like to single out specific fanbases for sport, but in reality, it doesn’t matter the locale or composition. Teams fans will react similarly in most cases provided the writing is not on the wall in gigantic stenciled block letters that…

  18. Matt Barnes kind of hates the Clippers

    Dec 23, 2011, 5:13 PM EDT

    Barnes_Matt

    From ESPN Los Angeles’ Dave McMenamin: Barnes said the Clippers should be feeling some positive vibes after adding Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups, Caron Butler and re-signing DeAndre Jordan this month, but thinks they may have gone overboard in showing that enthusiasm. “They definitely have a much improved team here and are looking to make a push towards the playoffs,” Barnes said…

  19. Billups can picture himself staying with Clippers

    Dec 21, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Chauncey Billups didn’t want to end up with the Clippers. He didn’t want to get shipped out of his hometown Denver to New York at the whim of Carmelo Anthony. He didn’t want to get waived by said Knicks to clear the way for their signing of Tyson Chandler. Then he told teams not to…

  20. Clippers sign rebounding machine Reggie Evans

    Dec 21, 2011, 1:30 AM EDT

    EVANS_REGGIE

    UPDATE Dec. 21, 1:30 am: It’s official, Reggie Evans is a Clipper. The team has announced the deal. This is a good signing by the Clips — it addresses a need with a player who does one thing exceptionally well at the NBA level. He doesn’t cost much, will come off the bench and Clipper…

  21. Chris Paul looks really, really good in first game as Clipper

    Dec 20, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Clippers' Paul sails to the basket as Lakers' players watch during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    We have to start with this disclaimer — it was a preseason game. Which means about as much as an autographed Derek Jeter baseball. Actually, less. That said, Chris Paul had 17 points, nine assists, seven rebounds and five steals and was a +24 against the Lakers in his first game as a Clipper. He…

  22. Billups says he’s a Clipper, “It could have been much worse”

    Dec 16, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    billups-knicks

    Chauncey Billups is in. He threatened retirement if someone he didn’t like picked him up on waivers after the Knicks used the amnesty rule on him (to free up room for Tyson Chandler). The Clippers took a chance and submitted a bid on him. At his introductory press conference, Billups said he was in and…

  23. New York will be better, but fans will be thinking about what’s next

    Dec 16, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks are going to win a playoff game this year. For the first time since 2001. Having Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire together for a full season will boost the offense, having Tyson Chandler along the back line will turn them from terrible to average on defense (or maybe a little better,…

  24. Blazers to formally amnesty Brandon Roy as he leaves game

    Dec 15, 2011, 7:39 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Roy is walking away from the game… which makes us sad. But he’s doing it while he can still walk, which is understandable. How Roy’s retirement is formally going down is that the Blazers will amnesty him, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo. The reason is they need to get his salary of the books…

  25. NBA Season Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

    Dec 15, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Chris Paul

    Last season: 32-50, or to frame it in context, 13th place in the West out of 15 teams. Head Coach: Vinny Del Negro, who, after the team successfully traded for Chris Paul, is now officially on the hot seat. VDN has yet to prove he can be successful coaching at the NBA level, and if…
