  1. Kyrie Irving hits the game-winner to send Cavs past Raptors (VIDEO)

    Jan 26, 2013, 10:12 PM EDT

    Omri Casspi; Kyrie Irving

    Let’s just get this out of the way right now — that was absolutely horrible defense by the Raptors. Kyrie Irving hit the game-winning shot from three-point distance with just 0.7 seconds remaining to give his Cavaliers the 99-98 victory in Toronto. The win was Cleveland’s third straight and fourth in its last five games.…

  2. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting five days for that goat cheese fire to butn itself out… Thunder 109, Clippers 98: This was a four-point game at the half, then Kevin Durant happened.

  5. Watch Kyrie Irving drop 40 on the Celtics (VIDEO)

    Jan 23, 2013, 8:06 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    I know he missed a chunk of the season, but watch this game and tell me Kyrie Irving doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star. Irving was the best player on the court when the Cavaliers took on the Celtics and he won Cleveland that game with a variety of shots — driving layups, pull-up midrange…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: A couple All-Stars and an Ilyasova

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:57 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Avery Bradley

    Sometimes you watch a game and a certain player just jumps off the screen at you. These were the three who did that for me on Tuesday. And yes, I know that Kyrie Irving has not yet been named an All-Star, but I think that changes Thursday. He’s going to get Doc Rivers vote. Third…

  7. Cavaliers, Grizzlies trade Speights and Selby for Leuer

    Jan 22, 2013, 9:08 AM EDT

    Marreese Speights

    Memphis has been looking for a way to get under the luxury tax line for this season — they may have just found it without shipping Rudy Gay out the door. Brian Windhorst of ESPN broke news of a trade that could benefit both teams on twitter, then Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports confirmed it…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Clippers back on top, showdown with Thunder Tuesday

    Jan 21, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    BKN-CLIPPERS-WIZARDS

    No change in the top four teams, but really it feels like right now there is a top three teams with the Heat capable of being that good but not really choosing to all the time. 1. Clippers (32-9, last week ranked No. 2). Chris Paul sits out three games, Eric Bledsoe steps in and…

  9. Anderson Varejao develops blood clot, now out for season

    Jan 21, 2013, 11:21 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    The hits just keep on coming for the Cleveland Cavaliers. First it was Kyrie Irving missing the first third of the season, now this. Anderson Varejao, the Cavaliers big man who was playing at an All-Star level (14.1 points and 14.4 rebounds a game), had knee surgery a couple weeks ago that was expected to…

  11. Brandon Jennings doesn’t like his All-Star chances

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    PHOENIX — Brandon Jennings, and to a lesser extent, Monta Ellis, are on the bubble in terms of potential players who could be named to the All-Star team as a reserve. We discussed this on the podcast this week — once you get past Kyrie Irving, there really aren’t any locks to make the team…

  13. These guys should be the NBA All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 17, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook drives by San Antonio Spurs' Parker during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA Western Conference basketball finals in Oklahoma City

    The fans have done their job — you all picked the NBA All-Star Game starters. And well done. While I could quibble with a choice I might have made differently, there are no egregious errors (read: Jeremy Lin is not a starter). Now it falls to the coaches to pick the seven reserves for each…

  14. Kyrie Irving spin move leaves Lillard looking lost (VIDEO)

    Jan 17, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    Hey rookie, welcome to the NBA. Damian Lillard is having about as good a rookie year as one could hope, although defense has not exactly been his strong side of the ball. To put it kindly. But this isn’t fair, because Kyrie Irving abuses a lot of people and makes them look bad. The rookie…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Turns out, the Heat and Thunder are pretty good

Heat 92, Warriors 75: As it has been with the Heat all season long, when they are focused and defend they destroy teams. Especially teams…

  16. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

  17. Larry Drew frustrated with Hawks team appearing in free-fall

    Jan 15, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Larry Drew

    The Atlanta Hawks have just been plain ugly the past few weeks. They are 3-7 in their last 10. In those 10 games the Hawks defense has been the biggest issue — they are giving up six points per 100 possessions more than their season average. But of late their offense has joined the “we’re…

    Jan 15, 2013, 8:31 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Kobe Bryant

    “Umm, it’s good … You know. I think sometimes he just … You know … Umm … Yeah, it’s good.” —Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni, when asked to describe Kobe Bryant‘s off-the-ball defense, as reported by Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. When Kobe has to defend on the ball — stop his man when said man has…

  20. Three Stars of the Night: Volatile Stars Edition

    Jan 15, 2013, 2:01 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    On a night where the Atlanta Hawks scored 58 points, the Memphis Grizzlies shot 30 percent from the field, and the Orlando Magic lost by 29 points…to the Washington Wizards…we could probably use some offensive outbursts to distract us, right? Well, I’ll tell you what — if it’s outbursts you want, our Three Stars are plenty capable…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, Nuggets climbing ranks

    Jan 14, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Chris Duhon, Earl Clark

    Each of the top five teams in last week’s ranking suffered losses, some pretty ugly losses. So, who bounced back and looked best after that? Oklahoma City, so they maintain the top spot. 1. Thunder (28-8, Last week ranked No. 1). Kevin Durant is a better playmaker than last year. Russell Westbrook a better floor…

  22. Video: Metta World Peace with the unusual “and-1″

    Jan 14, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    Metta World Peace in the open court never really disappoints from an entertainment standpoint. He’s just as liable to dribble the ball off his leg or short arm a lay-in as he is to make a play that gets the crowd on their feet. Last night, in the Lakers’ much needed win over the Cavs,…

  23. Report: Cavaliers wanted DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe for Varejao

    Jan 14, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    Injured or not, Anderson Varejao is one guy whose name will come up around the trade deadline — big men who work hard, defend and rebound are always in demand. The buzz has been that Cleveland would listen to your offer but they wanted a lot back in return for Varejao. A lot. And this…

  24. Lakers snap six-game losing streak with blowout win over Cavaliers

    Jan 14, 2013, 1:19 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    Mike D’Antoni has a long way to go before his stint as Lakers head coach will be viewed as anything close to a success. But he picked his motivational spot wisely, calling Sunday’s game against the Cavaliers essentially a must-win, and a starting point for L.A. to begin to get its miserable season back on…

  25. Pau Gasol out, Dwight Howard a game-time decision Sunday vs. Cavaliers

    Jan 13, 2013, 2:12 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol

    Mike D’Antoni knew that beating the Thunder on Friday without Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol would be asking a lot of his reeling Lakers. That’s why he placed the emphasis on beginning the team’s potential run at turning things around on Sunday night’s home game against the 9-29 Cleveland Cavaliers. “I told the team, the…
