    Chris Paul

    The Clippers were down 19 to the Utah Jazz about halfway through the third period, and the 15-game winning streak looked like it was finally coming to a close. Utah was getting easy buckets inside, and the Clippers offense had turned to mush. But what do you know? Chris Paul suddenly snapped into attack mode,…

  2. Want to know if the Clippers are for real? Ask the Celtics (who lost to them by 29)

    Dec 28, 2012, 3:11 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    I’ve done some sports talk radio spots the last few days around the nation and this still seems to be the question on a lot of sports fans lips: Are the Clippers really that good? Like title contender good? Why don’t you go ask Doc Rivers or the Celtics? Or Rajon Rondo? Or Paul Pierce?…

  3. No changes atop latest All-Star voting, but Lin and Bosh could sneak in

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…

  4. Report: Steve Blake could return to Lakers in 2-3 weeks

    Dec 27, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    Steve Nash is back with the Lakers and all is right with the world… well, except for the loss in Denver where the Lakers looked wooden and old, or the heavy minutes Nash and Kobe Bryant are racking up, or the fact the Lakers are below .500 and have a lot of work to do…

  5. Stephen Curry’s fantastic drive, circus shot vs. Jazz

    Dec 27, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry bites a mouth piece during the first quarter of his NBA basketball game against Los Angeles Lakers in Oakland

    That is just fun. It’s time to talk about Stephen Curry the All-Star. As in should he make the team? The fans are not going to vote him in, so this would have to be a coach’s choice. Curry is scoring 20.3 points per game and dishing out 6.4 assists per game, is shooting 43.9…

  6. Hornets coach says Eric Gordon could return Saturday

    Dec 27, 2012, 9:50 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Finally, the Hornets could get Eric Gordon back on the court. The two guard expected to be part of the future of the franchise along with No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis (notice how Austin Rivers is not in that conversation anymore) has missed the entire season due to pain in his knee. But Gordon…

  7. As if you didn’t see them enough, here are some NBA ads from Christmas

    Dec 26, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    It’s not exactly the Super Bowl, but on Christmas day you can usually expect to see some new ads featuring NBA stars. Of course it happened this year, and we have already showed you the Blake Griffin one, his latest for KIA. Here were a couple other new ones featuring Chris Paul and Kevin Durant…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Rockets, Celtics, Clippers get Christmas blowouts

    Dec 26, 2012, 8:35 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while running to the store to buy more double-AA batteries for those Christmas toys…. Celtics 93, Nets 76: The Nets are not a good defensive team, rather they are prone to lapses, like the second quarter when Boston put up 34…

  9. Video: NBA stars sing Jingle Bells. Badly.

    Dec 25, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Christmas basketball

    This should fully get you in the holiday spirit. That or make your ears bleed. One or the other. James Harden, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and some other NBA stars take a shot at Jingle Bells. They are not singers. Merry Christmas to the readers of PBT, and thanks for coming here. Have a cup…

  10. PBT Extra: Previewing Nuggets vs. Clippers Christmas Day game

    Dec 24, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT

    Clippers' Griffin slam dunks against Grizzlies during Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Kay Adams and I talk NBA desert on Christmas Day, the last game of the day could be the tastiest. The Nuggets want to run, the Clippers run with Blake Griffin getting lobs from Chris Paul. This could be fun. Plus, the always entertaining DeAndre Jordan vs. JaVale McGee matchup. One way or another that…

  11. LeBron James, Chris Paul named conference players of the week

    Dec 24, 2012, 3:21 PM EDT

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    Shocking news out of the league office this Christmas Eve, I know. But two of the game’s best players had two of the best weeks statistically speaking, and were therefore awarded for the accomplishment. LeBron James and Chris Paul were named Eastern and Western Conference players of the week, for games played from Dec. 17…

  12. Three Stars of the Night: Buckets in Bunches

    Dec 24, 2012, 1:23 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    We had a pretty streaky Sunday around the league. Chris Paul and the Clippers extended their winning streak to 13 games, the longest seen this year in the NBA. Dirk Nowitzki returned for the Mavs, but the Spurs made it six straight at home in a laugher. The Knicks squeaked out a win over the…

  13. Kyrie Irving crosses up Monta Ellis and drops a perfect dime (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Kyrie Irving has the best handle in the NBA. Look, I know what you’re thinking. You’re probably worried that the Clippers’ winning streak has caused me to develop temporary amnesia and forget about the existence of Chris Paul and Jamal Crawford. Those guys are great, but I don’t remember seeing a player with a handle…

  14. Chris Paul’s son apparently not convinced Dad can dunk

    Dec 20, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    There is the video proof. I think we all knew Chris Paul could dunk, he’s plenty athletic, but he’s the below-the-rim guy on the high-flying Clippers. But CP3 threw a quality two hander down against the Hornets on Wednesday night and after the game he tried to get a respect from his son (who is…

  15. Video: Is New York “Lob City?” Sure looks like it lately.

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Gerald Wallace

    The Clippers — with Chris Paul‘s impeccably-timed passes to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan — has been Lob City ever since Griffin said that when he found out CP3 was coming to Los Angeles. But no combo has connected on more alley-oop dunks this season than Raymond Felton and Tyson Chandler of the Knicks. That…

  16. Eric Gordon to rejoin Hornets Saturday, start workouts to return this month

    Dec 20, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon is about to be back with the Hornets. That’s when the work begins. First the work of practices and conditioning to get back on the court following the months of rehab to get his right knee healthy. Then there is the work of winning back a fan base that is ticked at him.…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: That Kevin Durant guy is pretty good

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while being more than willing to do your part to fight breast cancer…. Knicks 100, Nets 86: Battle of New York? Not really. The Knick are an elite team that got Carmelo Anthony back and he dropped 31 (that makes it…

  18. Kings players want Isaiah Thomas to start; don’t know what they’re running on offense

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    Isaiah DeMarcus

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

  19. Monday And-1 Links: Should the Rockets send Jeremy Lin to the bench?

    Dec 17, 2012, 7:29 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    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. • Should the Houston rockets bring Jeremy Lin off the bench? What has been…

  20. Jeremy Lin returns to Madison Square Garden Monday, without “Linsanity”

    Dec 17, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin is back in the place it all came together for him. But it’s not the same. Monday night Jeremy Lin brings his new team the Houston Rockets into Madison Square Garden to take on the team where for a stretch he played stunningly good, exciting basketball that energized a sullen fan base. It…

  21. The biggest advantage in basketball

    Dec 13, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    Chris Paul,  Eric Bledsoe

    A quarter of the way through the season, which team do you think possesses the greatest positional advantage in basketball? Is it the Heat with LeBron overwhelming every 3 in the league? The Thunder with Durant at the 3 and the 4? Carmelo thriving at power forward with the Knicks? Kobe beating up on the…

  22. While you weren’t looking, Golden State got really good

    Dec 13, 2012, 4:21 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Miami Heat

    They are 15-7, on a five-game winning streak all on the road with a signature win now in Miami. Their shooters and offense starting to find a groove while they dominate the glass. They are a team to watch in the Pacific because they are just going to get better. The Lakers wish we were…

  23. Nothing shocking here: Kobe, LeBron lead All-Star ballot early returns

    Dec 13, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    We don’t exactly need Nate Silver to break down these voting returns and trends — the players in the lead early in the NBA All-Star balloting almost always stay on top. Occasionally guys close small gaps, but generally what you see now is what you get. In which case — good job public. No glaring…

  24. Video: Chris Paul with double behind his back crossover

    Dec 13, 2012, 10:17 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is very, very good. The Clippers have won eight in a row and while CP3 doesn’t put up gaudy numbers that get him in the MVP conversation, he could. He chooses to worry about winning, about leading a team, about controlling the flow not just getting his own. But if you ever doubted…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pierce, Rondo lead Celtics to win

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the Sandy relief concert and thinking the Who looked really old… Celtics 117, Mavericks 115 (2OT): This game was fun. It entertained. Oh, no it wasn’t pretty at all — Dallas had 27 turnovers — but it had its…
