  2. Report: Dwight Howard mocked Kobe Bryant in All-Star locker room

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s start out right here — take this report with a grain of salt. Actually, a handful of kosher salt. I say that because there was no buzz about this in Houston. I say take the salt because every NBA reporter in America who breaks these kind of stories was in Houston and it leaked…

  3. Jeremy Lin says he’s “thankful” he wasn’t voted as All-Star starter

    Feb 19, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It came down to about 45,000 votes. That’s how much separated eventual NBA All-Star Game MVP Chris Paul from being replaced as a starter by Jeremy Lin (who finished with 883,809 votes, more than 400,000 than teammate James Harden). Now that the All-Star weekend circus has moved on from Houston, Lin can be honest —…

  4. Chris Paul talks about winning All-Star Game MVP (VIDEO)

    Feb 18, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    Chris Paul is the best player in the NBA at orchestrating the game. Other guys — LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant — are more athletic and can take a game over with their skills, but CP3 is be more of a conductor. He can score, but he wants to control the game mentally and…

  5. Chris Paul wins MVP of 2013 NBA All-Star game

    Feb 18, 2013, 12:43 AM EDT

    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…

  6. With CP3, Durant leading the way West wins tight All-Star Game

    NBA All-Star Griffin of the Clippers dunks as teammate Durant and All-Star Noah of the Bulls look on during the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — You know it’s an All-Star Game and all the seriousness that entails when Dwight Howard is launching and hitting threes, Howard and Blake Griffin are pretending to do acrobatics between quarters and the understated Tim Duncan is wearing some bright green Adidas Crazy Fast shoes. “I think that’ll be the only time you…

  7. Chris Paul, Tony Parker make Chris Bosh look bad (VIDEO)

    Feb 17, 2013, 11:09 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Paul of the Clippers takes the ball past All-Star Bosh of the Heat during the NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    Chris Bosh did not have a good first half. There was the 2-of-7 shooting with three airballs. There was some odd defensive choices like giving Chris Paul an uncontested layup to take away a potential lob to Blake Griffin. But these two plays by Paul and Tony Parker made him look worse than anything. Mocking…

    HOUSTON — Enough with the preliminaries — especially the pregame Ke$ha concert — let’s get on with the real show. Time for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. We’ve got this show covered for you. First, over on the mothership NBC site is a running log of everything tweeted by myself, PBT’s Brett Pollakoff, as well…

  9. Report: Clippers, Jazz talking Bledsoe for Millsap trade

    Feb 17, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Los Angeles Clippers remain hesitant to deal young guard Eric Bledsoe — he’s a valuable part of the “tribe called bench” that has been a big part of Los Angeles’ success, plus he is their insurance at the point should Chris Paul unexpectedly decide to sign elsewhere this summer. But as the offers get…

  10. Report: Clippers say they are not shopping Bledsoe, Jordan

    Feb 16, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan,Spencer Hawes

    Well, what else is the Clipper front office going to say? “Sure, we’re desperate to move them, so send in your lowball offers now!” You always say you aren’t moving a guy until you move the guy. That said, there seems to be some real truth to the report that the Clippers are not looking…

  11. Report: Clippers and Celtics still discussing a Kevin Garnett trade

    Feb 16, 2013, 1:38 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    You may remember hearing some rumblings about this a few weeks back, but apparently the interest hasn’t died down. The Celtics and Clippers have been rumored as potential trade partners before, and that makes some sense. Boston is going to need to rebuild at some point, and the Clippers have a chance at a title…

  12. Chris Paul discusses his place in the MVP conversation

    Feb 15, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-CLIPPERS-LAKERS

    HOUSTON — Chris Paul is having one of his best overall seasons, leading a deep and talented Clippers team to top-tier status playing among the elite in the Western Conference. Paul’s importance as the main cog that keeps the Clippers machine running was spotlighted recently, when his team struggled with a record of just 2-7…

  13. Clippers use fast start, hot three-point shooting to get blowout win over Lakers

    Feb 15, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin

    The Lakers hosted the Clippers in the second half of the televised double-header on Thursday, and with the first game between the Thunder and the Heat running a little long, almost five minutes had gone by in the first quarter in Los Angeles before the national audience saw any of it. By the time TNT…

  14. Are the Rockets in the market for Josh Smith? Maybe not quite yet.

    Feb 14, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Trade speculation surrounding Josh Smith is in full swing. The Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs have been reported as potential landing spots, but there may not be a more attractive trading partner for the Hawks given their rebuilding process than the Houston Rockets. Despite lacking a “big name” who can be moved, Houston has…

  15. Carmelo amazed with LeBron’s run, but says don’t give him MVP yet

    Feb 13, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts in front of Los Angeles Clippers Jamal Crawford after three-point shot in NBA game in New York

    Carmelo Anthony is as impressed as everyone else with LeBron James’ historic run — six games in a row with more than 30 points and shooting better than 70 percent overall in that stretch. It’s getting LeBron mentioned in the same breath with Jordan. Which is jumping the gun a bit. And so is just…

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

    Feb 12, 2013, 10:48 AM EDT

    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…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos….

  18. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It took three overtimes for Celtics to stop Nuggets streak

    Feb 11, 2013, 7:57 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed wondering again why you watch the Grammy’s every year… Heat 107, Lakers 97: The Lakers are playing better, they are starting to figure things out. But that’s still a process. And when the Heat cranked it up in the fourth quarter they pulled…

  20. Clippers bench, Chris Paul too much for Carmelo Anthony alone in L.A. win

    Feb 10, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Carmelo Anthony tried — he took over the game in the third quarter, put up 42 points for the game and lifted the Knicks to the lead. But the Clippers took control of the game again when their bench returned to start the fourth — Los Angeles got 48 points from their bench on the…

  21. Another report Chris Paul very likely to re-sign with Clippers

    Feb 9, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is simply put the best player available as a free agent this summer. And while teams will call, the buzz around the league is none of them think they have a shot at him. Everyone is pretty convinced he will re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers. That includes the Clippers. Marc Stein wrote…

  22. Wade, Bosh, Allen all could be out for Heat vs. Clippers Friday

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade drives between New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    If you paid a lot of money to see the Heat and Clippers in an All-Star battle Friday night, I’d hold my breath. The good news is the Clippers could be getting Chris Paul back — their MVP candidate is a game time decision, but it is thought he will play. Not so much for…

  24. Clippers likely to get Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups back Friday

    Feb 7, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    How much does Chris Paul mean to the Clippers? They have looked like a contender for much of the season with him running the show, but without him the last nine games they have gone 3-6. And it’s not like his backup stinks — a whole lot of teams are trying to trade for Eric…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish.
