  1. Latest All-Star voting returns in, Charles Barkley will not be happy

    Jan 3, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    Apparently, you folks have no concern whatsoever for Charles Barkley’s feelings. The day after Barkley said Dwight Howard and Kevin Garnett have not played well enough to be part of the All-Star starters, they are both in. Howard solidly, he’s a lock, and Garnett has stretched out his lead over Chris Bosh. Basically, nothing has…

  4. NBA’s best crossovers of 2012 (video)

    Jan 1, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I like a good dunk as much as the next guy, but if you give me my highlight loop of choice it would be crossovers. These are just so much fun. The fine folks at NBA.com have been putting together these year-end compilations, which have been fun. Well, this one wasn’t a lot of fun…

  5. LeBron takes ‘walking the dog’ to an entirely new level (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    With under two minutes remaining in overtime of Miami’s game against the Magic on Monday, the Heat were trailing, and wanted to preserve every precious second on the clock to ensure enough possessions were available for the team to come back and get this victory. They got it down the stretch, but time ended up…

  6. Kobe says this is the best Clippers team he’s ever seen

    Dec 31, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    The Clippers are the best team in Los Angeles. Right now, it’s not all that close. But Los Angeles is still a Lakers town. So when people want to validate how good the Clippers are they go and ask the Lakers about it. Because that’s just kind of how L.A. works. So ESPNLA.com’s Dave McMenamin…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston’s defense has serious issues

    Dec 31, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while in a massive food fight including flour and eggs…. Clippers 107, Jazz 96: The Clippers win streak is at 17 and if you are having an early season MVP discussion and not including Chris Paul in the mix, you…

  8. Three Stars of the Night: The Butler did it

    Dec 31, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Caron Butler

    Four games, three stars on a Sunday night. As always there are some honorable mention guys left out — Tony Parker with his 21, Monta Ellis with 30 points and 9 assists, and Al Jefferson with 30 against the Clippers front line almost made the cut. But instead, it’s an all-perimeter guys three stars tonight.…

  9. Clippers sweep the month of December, beat Jazz for 17th straight win

    Dec 31, 2012, 1:59 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    They say you make your own luck, but in the month of December, the Clippers have had little need to manufacture much of it. They’ve blown out most of their opponents, coasting to victory easily and often sitting their starters the entire fourth quarter. For a franchise that many thought was legitimately cursed once upon…

  10. Jarrett Jack isn’t exactly buying that playing with Chris Paul helped him

    Dec 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jrue Holiday

    Golden State Warriors point guard Jarrett Jack and Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul have a long-standing friendship. The two floor generals have known each other since they were teenagers on the AAU scene, and that carried over into a friendly ACC rivalry at Georgia Tech (Jack) and Wake Forest (Paul). When Jack was traded…

  11. Video: Eric Gordon returns to Hornets, scores 24 in win

    Dec 30, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    It’s going to take more than one game to make the fans of the New Orleans Hornets forgive Eric Gordon for signing an offer sheet with Phoenix last summer and saying publicly that is where he wanted to play, which combined with his injuries made it seem like he wanted out of New Orleans. But…

  12. Chris Paul puts Gordon Hayward on skates (GIF)

    Dec 29, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    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,…

  13. 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?…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

    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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
