    Nov 13, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Dallas Mavericks

    Tuesday night, with a couple of third quarter three pointers, Dirk Nowitzki passed Jerry West to move into 16th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Consider this a little reminder we are lucky to get to watch one of the greatest scorers ever to play the game and we should savor that. Nowitzki now has…

  2. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…

  3. Tuesday night NBA grades: Straight “A”s for Nowitzki, Beasley, Lakers bench

    Nov 13, 2013, 4:47 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Al Harrington

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while wearing your $550 sweatpants…. Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks. The big German with the soft touch reached an NBA milestone Tuesday — he passed Jerry West to move into 16th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. Appropriately he did it with a couple consecutive…

  4. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  5. Kevin Love is putting up historically great numbers to begin the season

    Nov 9, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    A healthy Kevin Love was expected to make a world of difference for the Timberwolves this season, and through the first six games that’s been exactly what’s happened. Minnesota is off to a 4-2 start to the season, and Love’s dominance in multiple statistical categories is a big reason why. Love’s numbers aren’t just great…

  6. Vince Carter suspended one game for elbow to Steven Adams’ head

    Nov 8, 2013, 11:44 AM EDT

    Vince Carter

    When this happened we told you Vince Carter could expect a league-mandated vacation, and that has come to pass. Dallas’ Carter has been suspended one game for throwing an intentional elbow to the head of Oklahoma City rookie Steven Adams. Carter will be out Friday night when the Mavericks take on the Timberwolves Carter was…

  7. Vince Carter ejected for elbow to Steven Adams’ head (VIDEO)

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Mavericks Thunder Basketball

    Vince Carter can expect a league-mandated one-game vacation for this, or at the very least he will pull out his checkbook. The veteran Mavericks guard was ejected for the third quarter play you see above. Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams caught Carter with an inadvertant elbow getting an offensive rebound, and Carter responded with an intentional…

  8. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  9. Wednesday Night NBA Grades: Larry Sanders out of action, and Tony Parker’s big fourth quarter

    Nov 7, 2013, 1:06 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Four

    Our grades from Wednesday night around the NBA, or what you missed while securing funds in advance of twitter’s IPO … Larry Sanders. Apologies for starting things off on a negative note, and even more so for discussing someone who didn’t even play in Wednesday night’s action. But signing a contract worth a guaranteed $44 million…

  10. Rick Carlisle takes a subtle shot at Chris Kaman after Mavs rout Lakers

    Nov 6, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT

    Dahntay Jones, Elton Brand, Chris Kaman, Rodrigue Beaubois, Rick Carlisle

    The Mavericks had little trouble with the Lakers on Tuesday, leading by as many as 30 points before settling on a final margin of 19 for the victory. Chris Kaman played in Dallas last season, and had some critical words for his former head coach Rick Carlisle when comparing his style to that of Mike…

  11. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  12. Friday Night NBA Grades: What tanking? Sixers, Suns both 2-0.

    Nov 2, 2013, 2:26 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that cat urine smell out of your computer…. Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers. Something funny happened on the way to the lottery… the Sixers and Suns, two of the poster teams for the tanking/riggin’ for Wiggins efforts, are both…

  13. Brandon Knight likely out Friday night for Bucks with hamstring injury

    Nov 1, 2013, 11:26 AM EDT

    Brandon Knight

    Brandon Knight played just 1:45 of the Bucks season opener against the Knicks Wednesday night before he tweaked his hamstring and had to leave the game, not to return. Now he is likely out Friday night as the Bucks are in Boston — officially he is doubtful so there is a chance, but a slim…

  14. Mark Cuban calls Dwight Howard’s judgment childish

    Oct 31, 2013, 6:55 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert,Dwight Howard

    Billionaires usually get their way. That’s why they’re billionaires. Those who didn’t get their way never amassed such a large fortune. Then, once they reached that status, they have the means to continue getting their way. The best NBA example is Dan Gilbert’s infamous letter when LeBron James left Cleveland. That was whiny and shameful,…

  15. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  16. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  17. Dirk Nowitzki asks: Do you really think I’m done?

    Oct 25, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Mark Cuban tweeted out this new Mavericks ad on Friday… and it’s pretty good. So we’re passing it along. And no, I don’t think he’s done. I expect a bounce back season for Nowitzki, who showed he still was an elite scorer in this league last season when he finally got healthy. If Monta Ellis…

  18. Dirk Nowitzki discusses his one-legged fadeaway (VIDEO)

    Oct 25, 2013, 12:16 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki has become famous for his go-to move, the one-legged fadeaway shot that’s simply impossible for defenders to guard. It’s so good that Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant are among the current players who have paid the utmost respect to Nowitzki by emulating his move and implementing it as part of their own respective…

  19. Dallas’ Monta Ellis says he is passing too much

    Oct 24, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Monta Ellis feels like he’s in an offensive funk this preseason. To me it looks like the same old Monta pretty much. This preseason he’s shooting 40.8 percent overall and 30.4 percent from three, which is pretty close to last season’s 41.6 percent overall and 28.7 percent from three. He’s taking 14.2 shots per 36…

  20. Dirk Nowitzki warned Mark Cuban the Mavericks had big problems before last season

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The Mavericks were so desperate to find a point guard last season, they started Darren Collison, Mike James, Derek Fisher and Dominique Jones in a futile attempt to keep throwing floor generals at the wall until one stuck. O.J. Mayo started all 82 games at shooting guard, but his play did not impress Rick Carlisle.…

  21. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 23, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

    Last year the Southwest Division sent a team to the NBA Finals — San Antonio had shifted over the years from a defensive to offensive team, got a renaissance season out of Tim Duncan and a breakout season from Kawhi Leonard. Kay Adams and I talk about if the Spurs can make a repeat trip…

  23. Dallas Mavericks waive Fab Melo, Renaldo Balkman

    Oct 22, 2013, 7:18 PM EDT

    Fab Melo

    They were long shots when they walked in the door — Dallas had 15 guaranteed contracts on the roster already — and on Tuesday the ax fell. The Dallas Mavericks waived Fab Melo and Renaldo Balkman, the team announced Tuesday. In the case of Melo his possible return to the NBA some day will be…

  24. D’Antoni on saying Lakers would score 110 a game: “I was on drugs back then”

    Oct 22, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mike D’Antoni just wants to run his system his way again. He’s been mocked for that system by some fans who say it can’t win a ring, but two facts remain: 1) Back in Phoenix with the right personnel (a younger Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire, plus Shawn Marion and others) they won 54 games…

  25. Nowitzki ejected for hit to Casspi’s head, can expect a fine (VIDEO)

    Oct 22, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki,Omri Casspi

    There was no malicious intent here — Dirk Nowitzki was going for the ball and the spectacular chase-down block. But instead he smacked Omri Casspi upside the head while the Rockets forward was going for a dunk. The referees reviewed it and rightfully called it a flagrant two, then ejected Nowitzki from Monday night’s preseason…
