  1. Report: Celtics were closer than you think to trading Paul Pierce

    Mar 8, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The idea of Paul Pierce in an Dallas Mavericks uniform just seems… wrong. Yet apparently it was closer to happening than we knew. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was listening to offers and talking about maybe blowing up Boston and restarting, but the conventional wisdom was he wouldn’t go through with it. But he almost did,…

  2. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  3. Hakim Warrick to Orlando headlines small trades at deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Hakim Warrick, Jason Thompson

    We didn’t get any blockbuster trades at this year’s NBA trading deadline. We saw Rudy Gay moved a few weeks before and J.J. Redick did get moved just before the deadline. But a lot of what happened at the deadline was smaller deals that slid under the radar. Here is a quick wrap-up of those…

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Two

    Trade deadline day in the NBA can be ridiculously hard to keep up with as reality and rumor collide. We understand. That’s why we’re here to help. This is our trade deadline day deal tracker — the one place where all the NBA’s trade deadline news and rumors will be. Plus you get our thoughts…

  5. Raptors’ Ross wins dunk contest with Toronto tributes

    Feb 17, 2013, 12:03 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Terrence Ross pulled out the Vince Carter Raptors throwback jersey, then did a throwback Vince Carter dunk. Then he did a not-very-far throwback dunk of Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan. Then he dunked over a kid. All the while Toronto’s own Drake was jumping around in the first row like a giddy 12-year-old boy. It all worked.…

  6. The Dallas Mavericks are growing mediocre beards

    Feb 7, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    You’ve probably heard of guys growing letting their facial hair grow for the postseason. The Clippers did it last year with hilarious results — Blake Griffin made Paul Pierce‘s beard look lustrous and full by comparison. The tradition of playoff beards has been around a long time in all sports, but the Dallas Mavericks are…

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

    Jan 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Durant shoots against Denver Nuggets defenders Randolph and Brewer in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while having to deal with all the people knocking on your door asking for their lost cell phones…. 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…

  8. Frustrated Carlisle threatens Mavs players with suspensions

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks head coach Carlisle reacts to call from officials NBA basketball game against Boston Celtics in Boston

    Dallas has lost six in a row and nine of their last 10 now. It hasn’t been pretty, especially the two losses to the Spurs where Dallas was barely even a threat. Coach Rick Carlisle is frustrated — frustrated with the effort level of his team. Frustrated with the professionalism. And he threatened his players…

  9. Shawn Marion ready to return to Mavericks’ lineup

    Dec 12, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, J.J. Hickson

    Shawn Marion has missed the last two games with a groin strain, one he suffered in his team’s win over the Suns in Phoenix last week. Marion’s team has managed just fine without him, however, winning a tough one in Houston before coasting to an easy one at home against the horrendous Sacramento Kings. Dallas…

  10. Dahntay Jones with the vicious slam on Patrick Patterson (VIDEO)

    Dec 9, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Patrick Patterson,Dahntay Jones

    There were plenty of slam dunk highlights from Saturday’s slate of games, but none more vicious or impressive than this monster jam from Dahntay Jones that came in the Mavericks’ win over the Rockets. Jones not only dunks all over Patterson, but pushes the ball through the defender’s hands before throwing it down. The best…

  11. O.J. Mayo out-duels James Harden as Mavs beat Rockets

    Dec 8, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    This was one of the more fun contests from a 10-game Saturday night slate. We had a superstar from each team putting in a dominant performance, and we had wild swings in the control of the game, with each team gaining a double-digit advantage at various points throughout. Ultimately, the Mavericks found a way to…

  12. Shawn Marion likely out against Rockets due to groin strain

    Dec 8, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, J.J. Hickson

    Shawn Marion left the Mavericks’ win over the Suns on Thursday in the third quarter due to suffering a groin strain. That injury is likely to keep him out of Dallas’ game in Houston against the Rockets on Saturday. Marion actually seemed to be getting around just fine after Thursday’s game in Phoenix, and said…

  13. Dahntay Jones says “Linsanity” was bigger because Lin was Knick

    Oct 15, 2012, 2:40 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Dahntay Jones is not the first person to say this. Heck, Mark Cuban said it. But the Mavericks swingman is the latest to say new cross-state rival Jeremy Lin would not have had the same hype last season if he hadn’t been playing in New York City. That the fire of “Linsanity” spread because the…

  14. NBA Season Preview: Indiana Pacers

    Sep 25, 2012, 7:55 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Last season: The Pacers made moves to become a top-tier team in the East and they worked out. Roy Hibbert and Paul George both took some big steps forward, while David West added the consistent scorer they were looking for and George Hill provided balance with Darren Collison, though the two didn’t work well together.…

  15. Delonte West reaches one-year deal to return to Mavericks

    Jul 25, 2012, 2:49 AM EDT

    delonte

    The chances of us seeing another “Wet Willy” in the NBA next season just went up. The Dallas Mavericks have reached a one-year deal to bring back Delonte West, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. We don’t know the size of the deal yet (likely the veteran minimum), but being just one year it does not…

  16. Winderman: New CBA means role players will see short-term contracts

    Jul 24, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    As the NBA adjusts to its new collective-bargaining agreement, we’re beginning to see some short-term returns. Literally. With a more punitive luxury tax and free agents thinking twice about moving on to new teams (and therefore significantly smaller contracts than by remaining with their incumbent teams), we’re apparently in the era of incremental rebuilds. Example…

  17. LeBron comes up big, then not so much vs. Pacers, but that’s OK, DWade’s got him

    Mar 11, 2012, 3:07 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    There’s this quote that’s hangs in the Spurs’ locker room. “When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it…

  18. Grading Dunk Contest dunks: Evans and Budinger get an A

    Feb 25, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    It was not a great contest, and worst of all it felt scripted, like the Kardashian “reality” shows. But I guess that’s where we’ve gotten to with the All-Star Dunk Contest. It’s style over substance. And only a couple dunks really impressed We’ve graded all 12 dunks from the contest (from A to F, like…

  19. Dahntay Jones rightfully moves to the end of the Pacers’ bench

    Nov 4, 2010, 5:12 PM EDT

    Anthony Carter, Dahntay Jones

    Dahntay Jones spent the initial stage of last season on an unprecedented tear. After a series of unimpressive campaigns for the Grizzlies, Kings, and Nuggets, the power of a Pacer uniform somehow brought out the best in him. Through the ’09-’10 season’s first 15 games, Jones averaged 16.7 points (on 45% shooting) and four rebounds…

  20. Pacers will make a 2-for-1 trade today or eat some salary

    Oct 25, 2010, 9:59 AM EDT

    Image (1) Pacers_logo-thumb-250x211-14457.gif for post 2726

    UPDATE 6:28 pm: With no trade to be made, the Pacers decided to cut Magnum Rolle lose. Which means they traded up to get a guy in the second round they then cut. 9:59 am: Welcome to cut-down day. Today is the day NBA rosters need to be at 15 for the season. The Indiana…

  21. NBA Season Preview: The Indiana Pacers

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:24 PM EDT

    Last season: The Pacers went 32-50, which puts them a step above the downright tragedy of the Nets, Timberwolves, and even the Wizards, but still among some pretty miserable company. Head Coach: Jim O’Brien will again have the Pacers running (they were the second fastest team in the NBA last season), running, running. This time,…
