Today features a 10-game slate, and we’ll provide live updates, highlights and recaps here as the day goes on. 1:15 a.m. ET Tuesday: Pacers 102, Warriors 94 (FINAL): The second half of this game felt like a playoff game, down to the…

  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  3. Manu Ginobili is concerned about Spurs 1-8 record vs. NBA’s best

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:59 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v New Orleans Pelicans

    The Spurs are 32-9, battling for the best record in the West and looking like an elite team most nights. At least one scout thinks they are the same old Spurs, winning games while pacing themselves through the regular season and they are the class of the conference again. But there are questions — they…

  4. The Extra Pass: 2013-14 Western Conference All-Star reserve picks; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 20, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    After selecting the Eastern Conference All-Star reserves on Friday, it’s time to tackle the Western Conference. Once again, we’ll defer to the last ballot returns for our starters, which are decided solely by fan vote. Here’s the projected Western Conference starters: West Starters (Fan Vote) Backcourt: Kobe Bryant, Stephen Curry Frontcourt: Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin We’ll…

  5. adidas says aggregate reaction to sleeved jerseys from players and fans has been ‘very positive’

    Jan 18, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    NEW YORK – The 2014 All-Star jerseys were officially unveiled by the folks at adidas on Thursday, but media were invited to the company’s showroom in New York the week prior to get a look at the uniform collection in person. Along with the sneak peek, executives from adidas and the NBA were available to…

  6. Clippers win fifth straight over Knicks, finding their way in Chris Paul’s absence

    Jan 18, 2014, 12:01 AM EST

    Blake Griffin

    NEW YORK – The Clippers were a middle of the pack playoff team in the loaded Western Conference, before Chris Paul went down with a shoulder injury that could keep him out up to five weeks. Common sense would dictate that they see an immediate drop-off in overall play and production, but the absence of…

  7. Clippers end wild game on 11-0 run to come back, beat Mavericks

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:45 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    LOS ANGELES — If the ball hadn’t been orange with David Stern’s signature on it rather than red, white and blue I would have sworn this was an old ABA game. It was fast paced with all kinds of offense, questionable defense, a ton of threes, some chippy play, and huge runs — the Los…

  8. PBT Extra: Talking J.R. Smith rumors, Kevin Love’s future

    Jan 13, 2014, 6:59 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Knicks are on a hot streak, that in spite of the injury to Tyson Chandler and the distraction that is J.R. Smith. In this latest edition of PBT Extra Kay Adams asks be about the reality of the J.R. Smith trade rumors, which were really a bluff by the Knicks more than anything. Then…

  9. Report: Former Portland Trail Blazers president Larry Miller candidate for players union executive director

    Jan 13, 2014, 5:08 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Portland Trail Blazers

    The National Basketball Players Association still hasn’t replaced Billy Hunter, who was ousted as executive director 11 months ago. Ron Klempner has held the title in an interim capacity, but the union is still looking for a permanent director. Enter Larry Miller. Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest: The National Basketball Players Association reached out to…

  10. Denver makes video trying to get people to vote Ty Lawson for All-Star Game

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:34 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    Not bad Denver Nuggets, not bad. Ty Lawson likely isn’t getting invited to New Orleans for the NBA All-Star game — he’s not in the Top 10 vote getters in the Western Conference backcourt so far this season — but Denver is pushing his candidacy with this video, making light of Lawson’s speed. To me,…

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

    Jan 13, 2014, 2:32 PM EST

    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…

  12. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out indefinitely with stress fracture in leg

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:41 AM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    Ugh. The list of quality point guards currently out injured in the NBA includes Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Eric Bledsoe (even if he played some two guard)… And now Jrue Holiday. Pelicans starting point guard Holiday has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right tibia and will be out…

  13. Andrew Bynum clears waivers, is officially a free agent

    Jan 9, 2014, 8:06 PM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    As of 6:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, Andrew Bynum has cleared waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent. A quick reminder of how we got here — Bynum was suspended by the Cavaliers for “conduct detrimental to the team,” a short-term solution while they attempted to trade him before his contract would become fully guaranteed…

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

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EST

    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…

  15. 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…

  16. Andrew Bynum, Stephen Jackson top list of players waived Tuesday

    Jan 7, 2014, 4:23 PM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Today was essentially cut-down day in the NBA. Any player on the roster come Jan. 10 has his contract guaranteed for the full season (even if he is let go), and as it takes 48 hours to clear waivers players have to be let go of Tuesday (5 ET) to make that deadline. There were…

  17. Report: Clippers considering adding Hedo Turkoglu, Sasha Vujacic

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:10 PM EST

    Sasha Vujacic

    For one night Monday, the Clippers’ offense looked just fine without Chris Paul. Unfortunately, the Clippers don’t get to play a disinterested and dispirited Orlando Magic team every night. With CP3 out, the Clippers need more guys who can create shots. Which is why the Clippers are thinking of making a roster change and bringing…

  18. Monday night NBA grades: Good night for the Minnesota starting five

    Jan 7, 2014, 3:07 AM EST

    Kevin Love Ricky Rubio

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching one heck of a freshman quarterback… Ricky Rubio, Kevin Martin, Corey Brewer, Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic (Minnesota’s starters). The Timberwolves blew out the Sixers and the starters were a key reason — in 21 minutes the starting five put up 65 points and…

  19. Monday And-1 Links: Ronny Turiaf returns to Minnesota rotation, not so for Shabazz Muhammad

    Jan 6, 2014, 10:38 PM EST

    Ronny Turiaf

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • One of my personal favorites around the league, Ronny Turiaf was back on…

  20. PBT Extra: How far will Clippers slip without CP3? And talking D’Antoni with Lakers.

    Jan 6, 2014, 5:35 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Boston Celtics

    The Los Angeles Clippers losing Chris Paul is a big blow — but how big? The incomparable Kay Adams and I talk about it in today’s new PBT Extra. I see it this way: The Clippers are currently tied for the 4/5 seed and Pacific lead with Golden State, plus they are just three games…

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

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EST

    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…

  22. Carmelo Anthony calls Clippers trade rumors “stupid and silly”

    Jan 6, 2014, 1:28 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    Maybe with this we can put the entire thing to bed. Please. Carmelo Anthony is not getting traded to the Clippers for Blake Griffin and anyone telling you otherwise is selling something. The two sides have not even discussed this idea. It doesn’t matter if Chris Paul wants him or not. Don’t take my words…

  23. Kobe Bryant thinks you should be voting younger guards into All-Star Game

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    kobe all-star 2013

    You want Kobe Bryant to start in the All-Star Game… well, maybe not you personally, but people do. Like that guy in front of you in line at Starbucks this morning. Blame him. Fan voting has Kobe Bryant well out in front as a starting guard for the West in the 2014 All-Star Game. Chris…

  24. Spurs’ Tiago Splitter out 3-5 weeks with shoulder sprain

    Jan 5, 2014, 8:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    The Spurs got an easy win over the Clippers on Saturday, who were playing their first game since Chris Paul suffered a shoulder injury that is expected to sideline him for 3-5 weeks. Tiago Splitter came away from San Antonio’s victory with a similar sprain that will keep him out just as long. The official…

  25. Dirk Nowitzki says he doesn’t think Mavs are a playoff team after losing to Clippers

    Jan 4, 2014, 6:30 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Chris Paul left midway through the third quarter of the Clippers’ contest in Dallas on Friday, and didn’t return after suffering a shoulder injury that’s expected to sideline him for three-five weeks. That didn’t prevent his team from winning, however, as L.A. erased a seven-point deficit with 4:06 to play by finishing the game on…
