  1. Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony shoot East to win in highest scoring NBA All-Star Game ever

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:18 AM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS — The NBA All-Star Game is never exactly a defensive showcase, it’s an exhibition. But this year’s version was an analytic lover’s dream: Three pointers and dunks. A lot of them. In the highest-scoring NBA All-Star Game ever, the East beat the West 163-155. This was the kind of showcase of athleticism the…

  2. James Harden to start All-Star Game for Kobe Bryant

    Feb 14, 2014, 9:33 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Kobe Bryant was already replaced on the Western Conference All-Star roster with Anthony Davis, but that was only half the process. Kobe must also be replaced in the starting lineup. Looks like that’s settled, too. Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports: Injured Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will be replaced as a Western Conference All-Star…

  3. NBA open to idea of expanding All-Star break to a week

    Feb 14, 2014, 9:20 AM EDT

    NBA Commissioner David Stern Announces Retirement

    The All-Star weekend is a busy one — and not just for Damian Lillard (who will be in five events during the weekend). For the players selected to the team it is a whirlwind of media events, community events, practices and, oh yea, a basketball game. Plus a few parties. Then a few more parties.…

  4. The Extra Pass: Predictions for All-Star Weekend

    Feb 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

  5. Jim Boeheim tells Carmelo Anthony to leave Knicks (basically)

    Feb 13, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Jim Boeheim, who coached Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse, discussed Melo’s pending free agency with Jim Rome (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball). Boeheim: What I’d tell him is what I would tell any NBA great player. If you’re a great player in the NBA, for you to be recognized as a great player,…

  6. Clippers hold off Trail Blazers for win… can these two meet in playoffs, please?

    Feb 13, 2014, 3:21 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    If the playoffs started today, the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers would meet in the first round… please let that happened. Defense? Who needs it? We want Blake Griffin vs. LaMarcus Aldridge. We want dunks and threes. This matchup would just be entertaining. When these two teams first met the day after Christmas…

  7. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

  8. The Extra Pass: The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the clock

    Feb 11, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    10 days before the trade deadline. 30 games left in the season. One contract year remaining. To say this is one of the most important time frames in the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise isn’t overly dramatic or hyperbolic. It’s reality. Minnesota has never won a championship. 25 years, no rings, and an overall…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  10. Blake Griffin with back-to-back windmill alley-oop throwdowns (VIDEO)

    Feb 10, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Philadelphia “defense” provided a blank canvas on which the Los Angeles Clippers could create whatever art they wanted Sunday night (Los Angeles led 100-51 after three quarters). And when you let the Clippers do whatever they want, you get alley-oops. Chris Paul was back to throw them and Blake Griffin was finishing them with…

  11. Sunday night NBA grades: It’s Kevin Durant’s world we just live in it

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:08 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jeopardy to see what all the Arthur Chu fuss is about…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. If you are going to win the MVP award you need a couple monster games on national television. Durant delivered that on Sunday — 41 points, 10…

  12. Chris Paul to make his return for Clippers Sunday vs. Sixers

    Feb 8, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    chris paul

    Chris Paul suffered a shoulder injury back on Jan. 3 that has kept him sidelined ever since, but you wouldn’t know it the way the rest of the team has responded in his absence. The Clippers have put together a 12-6 record with Paul out, and heading into Friday night’s contest against the Raptors (which…

  13. Among Adam Silver’s priorities: Raising NBA age limit

    Feb 8, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kings vs. Raptors

    During the lockout, the issue of the NBA’s age limit was put to the side. The owners wanted to up the age to 20, the players wanted to do away with it again, and in the interest of getting a deal done it was tabled to later. It is still laying on the table. New…

  14. Giannis Antetokounmpo to compete in Skills Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Typically, rookies don’t get noticed. Typically, players from overseas need more time to build an American following. Typically, Milwaukee Bucks are ignored. Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely atypical. “The Greek Freak” has wowed fans all season with his long arms, diverse skillset and outward happiness. He’s been so impressive, he’ll be competing in Skills Challenge –…

  15. Clippers should get Chris Paul back on court Sunday

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers have gone 11-6 since Chris Paul went out Jan. 3 with a separated shoulder. It’s been an impressive run, with Blake Griffin stepping up and showing off a more well-rounded game. In those 17 games the Clippers have averaged 111.7 points per 100 possessions, best in the NBA. It makes you wonder how…

  16. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  17. Wednesday night NBA grades: Dwight Howard looks like guy Rockets thought they signed

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:58 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering why anyone would live in a dumpster for a year, voluntarily…  Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets. The NBA game is in large part about exploiting mismatches. With all due respect to the solid season Miles Plumlee is having, him trying to cover Dwight Howard…

  18. Heat start hot then hang on to beat Clippers

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:13 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    This was a nationally televised against a top-four team in the West in the Clippers — these are the kind of games that shake the Heat out of their mid-season malaise. And when the Heat play like they did early Wednesday night it is a beautiful thing. Miami’s first quarter was as good as they…

  19. The Extra Pass: Talking Blazers, Clippers, coaching with Bill and Luke Walton

    Feb 5, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    Portland Trail Blazers fans are not fair weathered. They have stuck with the franchise through some dark times. Now they are being rewarded — with LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard leading the way, Portland fans are getting to witness some of the best, most entertaining basketball Rip City has seen in more than a decade.…

  20. Report: Clippers to sign Sasha Vujacic to 10-day contract

    Feb 2, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Vujacic_Sasha

    The Clippers have continually been on the lookout for upgrades to the roster this season, in hopes of winning now with All-Star talent like Chris Paul and Blake Griffin already in place. L.A. tried its luck with Stephen Jackson earlier in the year before releasing him, and brought in Hedo Turkoglu for bench support as…

  21. Jordan Brand celebrates grand opening of first Flight 23 store (PHOTOS)

    Carmelo Anthony Flight 23 opening

    Jordan Brand has always had a huge retail footprint (pun intended), but had yet to open specialized individual retail stores of its own — at least until now. From the official release: “[Saturday] morning in midtown Manhattan, Jordan Brand president Larry Miller, Footaction CEO Jake Jacobs and filmmaker Spike Lee officially welcomed the first consumers to…

  22. John Wall’s first move after finding out he’s an All-Star? Calling his mom.

    Jan 31, 2014, 11:40 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Los Angeles Clippers

    John Wall is an All-Star. He deserved to be selected as a reserve. He’s been healthy all season (which is a change) and with that has been one of the best point guards in the East averaging 19.8 points and 8.5 assists a game, and while he could be more efficient (true shooting percentage of…

  23. Report: Chris Paul targeting Feb. 7-9 return

    Jan 31, 2014, 12:10 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers have been impressive with Chris Paul out, having gone 10-3 in this stretch (heading into Thursday’s game at Golden State). Blake Griffin has stepped up and his mid-range jumper has become a real weapon, Darren Collison has been solid at the point and the Clipper offense has been the best in the NBA…

  24. Lance Stephenson leads list of three biggest All-Star Game snubs from each conference

    Jan 30, 2014, 8:38 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics  v Indiana Pacers

    There are only 12 All-Star Game roster slots per conference, and there are more than 12 deserving players. Somebody is going to be left off — we like to call it a snub, but most of the time it’s more like splitting hairs between good players. You pull on of these guys off the coach’s…

  25. John Wall, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard lead NBA All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 30, 2014, 7:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    The fans had their say last week naming the NBA starters. This week coaches have their say getting to vote in the All-Star reserves — seven from each conference. Next the fun part comes, picking out who got snubbed. The reserves are voted on by the coaches (who only vote in their own conference and…
