    Stephen Curry

    One in four shots in an NBA Game this season has been a three. That number is only going to go up.

  5. Report: Timberwolves, Grizzlies discussing Chase Budinger, Tony Allen trade

    Feb 17, 2014, 9:16 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    The Memphis Grizzlies have a very stout defense but need more scoring punch, particularly outside shooting, if they are going to advance deep in the playoffs again (Courtney Lee has been a big boost here). The Minnesota Timberwolves need more consistent defense if they have hopes of making a playoff  push (it’s not likely this…

  6. Report: Grizzlies turning down Zach Randolph offers, would rather add small forward

    Feb 8, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Sacramento Kings

    With Marc Gasol back in the line-up and great fit on the perimeter in Courtney Lee, the Memphis Grizzlies look like a threat in the West again. They can defend with the best in the league, the question has always been if they can generate enough offense come the postseason. They are looking around at…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  8. The Extra Pass: The best possible nickname jerseys; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Jan 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    If you missed it last week, the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets played with nicknames on the back of their jerseys instead of their last names. Once I was able to shush the crotchety old man that sometimes takes over my brain, I really enjoyed it. Ray Allen‘s “J. Shuttlesworth” jersey, a nod to his…

  9. It’s official: Grizzlies/Celtics/Thunder three-team trade involving Jerryd Bayless, Courtney Lee

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:39 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    For a couple days you’ve been reading about a potential Jerryd Bayless swap for Courtney Lee, with the Thunder jumping in to offload Ryan Gomes. Now it’s official, it has been announced by the teams. Here is who gets what: Memphis Grizzlies: Lee plus a 2016 second round pick from Boston. Boston Celtics: Bayless and…

  10. Report: Thunder become third team in Grizzlies/Celtics swap of Bayless/Lee

    Jan 6, 2014, 9:09 PM EDT

    GOMES_RYAN

    We told you Sunday that it looked like the Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies were close to swapping Jerryd Bayless and Courtney Lee. Why do it? Because the Celtics would save money in future years and while they get another ball handling guard (which they could use while Rajon Rondo remains out) they really don’t…

  11. Report: Celtics trading Courtney Lee to Grizzlies for Jerryd Bayless

    Jan 5, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Despite the Celtics getting out to a better than expected start to the season, they’re still a team in a full-fledged rebuilding mode, which we’re reminded of by the news of the team’s latest trade. Marc Stein of ESPN.com has the details: Boston Celtics, I’m told, are in advanced discussions on a trade to acquire…

  12. For your Christmas viewing: Top 10 crossover moves of 2013

    Kyrie Irving

    We figured it was time to test out the video capabilities of the new iPad Santa just brought you this morning, so here you go. Before you jump on me in the comments: 1) I know that several of these are not crossover moves. 2) I didn’t put together this compilation, the fine folks at…

  13. 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…

  14. Lance Stephenson cross-over drops Courtney Lee to floor (VIDEO)

    Dec 22, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics  v Indiana Pacers

    The Pacers’ Lance Stephenson has a lot of moves and he broke them all out on Courtney Lee. First a stop-and-start, then a little spin move — then a crossover that literally drops Boston’s Courtney Lee to the ground. Stephenson finished the game with 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

  15. Reports: Houston Rockets pull out of Asik trade talks, will keep him for now

    Dec 19, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Omer Asik may not like it, but he’s staying a Rocket for now. Probably. After weeks of talks — not to mention media and fan speculation — Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey has looked at the trade market for Asik and decided it’s not good enough. The Rockets have pulled out of all Asik trade talks…

  16. Report: Celtics may be frontrunners for Asik; would move Bass, Lee, pick

    Dec 18, 2013, 4:07 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Houston’s Omer Asik is going to get traded Thursday. Not Wednesday —deals are still being hammered out. Not Friday — anyone acquired this day or later can’t be traded again at the February trade deadline in a combined deal with other teammates. It will happen Thursday. It looks more and more like the Celtics will…

  17. Report: Boston willing to do bad contract swap with Knicks

    Nov 18, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    There will be no Rajon Rondo for Iman Shumpert and pieces deal going down between the Celtics and Knicks — Boston GM Danny Ainge rightfully laughed that one off. But there might be a Celtics/Knicks deal that Boston officials would consider — a swap of bad contracts. Chris Broussard of ESPN threw up this tweet.…

  18. Gerald Wallace calls out Celtics’ teammates on effort, being “selfish”

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace

    It’s going to be a long season for Boston — a couple seasons ago they were up 3-2 on the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, now they are looking at how many lottery ping pong balls they can rack up. But for a professional like Gerald Wallace, what is inexcusable is a lack of…

  19. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  20. Jordan Crawford says Celtics teammates starting to look at him as leader. Okay then.

    Sep 13, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. Well, unless they trade him, but heading into camp this is unquestionably Rondo’s team. However, if he’s not back at the start of the season (we have no timeline) then others may have to step up. There are respected veterans in that locker room such as Brandon…

  21. Highlights from the Orlando pro-am (VIDEO)

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    WILLIAMS_JASON

    We already showed you that Chandler Parsons looked really good at the Orlando pro-am, but he wasn’t the only one. White chocolate Jason Williams also put on a show, and there was Courtney Lee, Nick Calathes,  Austin Rivers and others. Enjoy. In about a month we finally start to get some real NBA basketball again. Hat…

  22. MarShon Brooks working on attacking off dribble, finishing

    Aug 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    For his first couple seasons in the NBA, MarShon Brooks has been a potentially dynamic scoring guard who doesn’t score quite as well as you would hope. He didn’t finish all that well at the rim (a mediocre 62 percent in the restricted area) and he shot 32 percent from the midrange and 27 percent…

  23. Report: Pistons want to trade for Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay

    Jul 2, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    The Pistons have two of the NBA’s most promising big men, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, and they’ve cleared more than $20 million in cap space this summer. They’re definitely in position to make a jump to the playoffs, which is what general manager Joe Dumars probably needs in the final season of his contract,…

  24. Celtics stuck in limbo without Clippers trade

    Jun 18, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    If the Celtics-Clippers trade is indeed dead – and like Kurt, I have my doubts – the offseason doesn’t get any easier for the Celtics. Boston is obviously ready to move on from Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers, at least if it nets a certain combination of DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and first-round picks and…

  25. Why not another Clippers/Celtics trade update: Maybe tomorrow

    Jun 18, 2013, 2:19 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Garnett complains about a foul during their NBA basketball game against Brooklyn Nets in Boston

    The Clippers and Celtics keep inching toward a deal. A much-discussed one that would send Kevin Garnett and the rights to sign coach Doc Rivers to Los Angeles. The Celtics would get DeAndre Jordan and a pick or two. The sides are close but there is no deal yet so they will talk again Tuesday,…
