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

    Jan 7, 2014, 3:07 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 6, 2014, 10:38 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 6, 2014, 5:35 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 6, 2014, 1:28 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 6, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 5, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jan 4, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    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…

  9. DeAndre Jordan with the monster alley-oop over Samuel Dalembert (VIDEO)

    Jan 4, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Los Angeles Clippers

    We’ve seen how easy it is for DeAndre Jordan to get up for huge dunks, and when Chris Paul lobs it up for him perfectly at the rim, whether or not a defender is present doesn’t seem to make a difference. Paul later left the game with a shoulder injury that is expected to sideline…

  10. Chris Paul expected to miss 3-5 weeks after suffering shoulder injury (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2014, 11:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    This season continues to be terrible in terms of the game’s best players missing extended time due to injury. Chris Paul left the Clippers’ win over the Mavericks on Friday with a shoulder injury, one that will apparently cause him to miss at least 3-5 weeks. Clippers head coach Doc Rivers delivered the news to…

  11. Report: Carmelo Anthony wants to stay a Knick, but if he leaves likes Bulls, Lakers, Clippers

    Jan 2, 2014, 4:26 PM EDT

    carmelo Antnony

    I still think come the start of next season Carmelo Anthony will slip on New York Knicks warm-ups before he takes the court pregame. When presented with all his options, he will stay in New York and trust management to build a team around him. Still, there is louder and louder talk he is looking…

  12. Flopping: It’s not just for defenses anymore

    Jan 1, 2014, 7:01 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    You see it all the time in the NBA: A point guard comes off a pick and attacks the paint only to find the opposing team’s center there waiting for him cutting off the lane, so the guard pretty much charges into the big man, falls back, flails his arms as he throws up a…

  13. Suns GM says team will pay Eric Bledsoe ‘whatever it takes’ to keep him in free agency

    Dec 31, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    The Suns have been one of the most positive surprises of the first two months of the season, getting out to a 19-11 start after trading away players for reasons that initially appeared to be geared more towards salary cap relief and rebuilding for the future than they were meant to help the team win…

  14. Blake Griffin: Warriors were ‘cowardly.’ Andrew Bogut: Yeah, so? We won

    Dec 27, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Andrew Bogut, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison

    Draymond Green elbowed Blake Griffin in the face, and then Andrew Bogut grabbed Griffin and refused to release. So, of course, Griffin was ejected from the Clippers-Warriors game on Christmas. Green took a total dirty shot, and seeing an opportunity to get an opposing All-Star ejected, Bogut seized it with another non-basketball play. There are…

  15. The Extra Pass: A big test for the Clippers; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Pressure reveals character, and the last minutes of the Clippers road matchup with Portland did just that. Down the stretch, both teams played perfectly to their strengths. The Blazers ran everything through LaMarcus Aldirdge (32 points) on the left block, surrounding him with three-point shooters and daring the Clippers to double. The Clippers, meanwhile, put the…

  16. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  17. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  18. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  19. Warriors beat Clippers… do we have a rivalry brewing?

    Dec 26, 2013, 2:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There isn’t a full-blown rivalry between the Clippers and Warriors. Yet. NBA rivalries are forged in the playoffs and these two up-and-coming teams in the West have yet to meet on that stage. But can they please? Can we get a Clippers/Warriors playoff matchup this season? I don’t think that’s too much to ask. The…

  20. Chris Paul and his son appear in latest State Farm ad to debut Christmas Day (VIDEO)

    Dec 25, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Lil Cliff, Lil Chris -- State Farm

    Chris Paul (and his alter ego Cliff) have been part of an ad campaign for State Farm Insurance for some time. Now, it appears that Paul’s son will be getting into this portion of the family business. From the official release: “Heritage of the Assist,” which will debut during the NBA games on Christmas Day,…

  21. PBT Extra: Previewing Clippers at Warriors, the best game of Christmas Day

    Dec 24, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    The NBA has saved the best for last — the Los Angeles Clippers vs. the Golden State Warriors. Stephen Curry vs. Chris Paul. In this PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talk about how the Warriors could use this kind of big stage to break out of their recent doldrums, while on the other side…

  22. How the NBA came to own Christmas Day

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Chicago Bulls

    How big is Christmas Day to the NBA? Look at it this way: Last year’s Christmas Day game between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder drew more viewers (9.6 million people) than all but one playoff game prior to the NBA Finals (that was Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Miami and…

  23. Monday night NBA grades: LeBron James flashes his MVP credentials

    Dec 24, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about NBA Jam legend Mike Iuzzolino…  LeBron James, Miami Heat. No Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh left late in the game after Paul Millsap elbowed his jaw. Other Heat players struggled (we’re looking at you, Mario Chalmers). Yet there was LeBron James to carry the…

  24. The Extra Pass: Three things you think about Danny Granger that are wrong

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets  v Indiana Pacers

    In his second game back Sunday, Danny Granger looked good. After battling knee issues that kept him out almost all of last season and most of this one, Granger returned the Pacers lineup this weekend. Sunday against the Celtics he looked like the guy the Pacers are hoping he will be off the bench —…

  25. Sunday night NBA grades: Kevin Love makes his All-Star statement against Griffin

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:29 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about how Charles Dickens’ classic “Christmas Carroll” almost didn’t get published… Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Love is not going to own up to it, but this came off as a “are all of you really voting for Blake Griffin as an All-Star…
