  1. March Madness NBA prospects to watch: South Regional

    Mar 14, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    The NCAA Tournament is prime NBA draft scouting time (and it normally doesn’t fall right on the trade deadline — thanks again, NBA lockout). It’s a chance to see guys against good competition and under pressure. For NBA fans looking at the standings and realizing they could be drafting high, the South Regional is the…

  2. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  3. Jason Terry says “it’s time for a change” when it comes to the Mavs

    Mar 10, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Less than a day after a loss to the Suns on national television in which he was angry over being benched late, Jason Terry was outspoken again Friday night. This time he didn’t mince words about the state of the Mavericks after a loss to the Kings. I say again, the Kings. (A game, I…

  4. Jason Terry not happy with coach’s decision to bench him late in loss to Suns

    Mar 9, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    After the Mavericks had allowed an 11-point third quarter lead to become an 11-point fourth quarter deficit late Thursday night in Phoenix, they were able to gather themselves and make one final push in the game’s final three minutes. Dallas had fought back to within two, and had possession of the ball with 15.4 seconds…

  5. Phoenix 96, Dallas 94: Suns come back from double-digit defict to take down Mavericks

    Mar 9, 2012, 4:21 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Grant Hill

    A few weeks ago, any talk involving the Phoenix Suns and the word “playoffs” would have seemed completely ridiculous — and maybe, to a certain extent, it still is. But the Suns have shown they possess the necessary grit and fight that is evident in postseason teams, battling back from double-digit deficits in their last…

  6. Jason Kidd fined $25,000 for criticizing officials

    Mar 7, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Mavericks guard Kidd watches from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    We told you yesterday about veteran Mavericks guard Jason Kidd saying the referees didn’t respect Dallas as champions and they were not getting the calls. Wednesday he got a call — from the league office informing him of his $25,000 fine for his comments. Nothing shocking here, the league doesn’t like players smacking the officials.…

  7. Cuban says Mavericks not making (but are taking) trade calls

    Mar 7, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban, Shawn Marion

    Welcome to the semantics of the NBA trade deadline. In the minds of NBA front office types, there is a dramatic difference between a team calling others and saying “I’d like to trade you Player X” versus just taking calls listing to other teams pitch you on getting Player X. For fans, that line seems…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Pistons both won. Seriously.

    Mar 7, 2012, 4:02 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while playing a sport where you use stun guns on your opponents… Pistons 88, Lakers 85 (OT): This is why I can’t take the Lakers seriously as a contender — because after each of their big wins this year they turned around the next game and laid an egg (beat Boston lost…

  9. Mark Cuban still has Odom’s back. That will not change.

    Mar 7, 2012, 1:40 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Mark Cuban has worked hard to change the culture around the Dallas Mavericks into a place players want to be. A place where they are comfortable and can thrive in part because they know management has their back. It hasn’t worked that way for Lamar Odom — he has not played well since coming to…

  10. Kidd says Mavericks’ title should mean more respect from refs

    Mar 6, 2012, 12:31 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin defends Dallas Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    I just expect more out of the champions, out of a veteran team like this. After another Dallas lost on Monday night where they ran some terrible execution on plays in the final couple of minutes, Jason Kidd pulled out the card most used by struggling teams without a good answer — it’s the referees’…

  11. Another close game, another Oklahoma City Thunder win

    Mar 6, 2012, 2:41 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Russell Westbrook

    Oklahoma City has been one of the best teams in close games all season — when games are within 3 points (either way) in the last three minutes, the Thunder were 13-3 coming into Monday night. Make that 14-3. Monday night they won another close one, this time beating the Dallas Mavericks 95-91 by scoring…

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls grab top spot by the horns

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    The top three are pretty much set, it’s just a matter of who is playing the best among them at this moment. Right now it’s Chicago. The bottom three are pretty much locked in, too, but the Bobcats have really grabbed hold of the last spot and made it their own. 1. Bulls (31-8, last…

  13. Monday And-1 links: A couple rumors, Kobe’s mask, more

    Mar 5, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Pau Gasol

    Here is our daily 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). The Clippers and Timberwolves have some interest in Jamal Crawford of Portland and trade talks may follow. Crawford was brought in after the Brandon Roy…

  14. Jeremy Lin who? Rajon Rondo dominates in Celtics victory

    Mar 4, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Jeremy Lin, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks

    All-Star weekend, the Nets Deron Williams (who put up 38 on the Knicks) said all the hype around Jeremy Lin would have other teams’ point guards looking to take their frustrations out on the Knicks. Meet Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard had 18 points, 17 rebounds and 20 assists and dominated the Knicks in…

  15. Mavs support Odom’s return as he has a good game in win over Utah

    Mar 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Lamar Odom drives on Phoenix Suns Grant Hill near guard Steve Nash during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    After Dirk Nowitzki was done dropping 40, after the Jazz went quietly into the night, after Lamar Odom had returned just hours before to the team instead of beginning an assignment with the D-League, it was a time for reconciliation. And the Mavericks, as teams with good, quality guys do, were ready to stick up…

  16. Lamar Odom to skip D-League game, play for Mavs Saturday

    Mar 3, 2012, 11:01 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen

    That whole “Lamar Odom is going to play a game in the D-League to get his legs back before returning to the Mavericks” thing? Forget about it. He is coming straight to the Mavericks and will play Saturday when Dallas tries to stop its four-game losing streak when they take on the Jazz (who just…

  17. Why you should and should not care about LeBron’s whole “passing in the clutch” thing

    Mar 3, 2012, 9:10 AM EDT

    jamesheat

    To review, in last night’s game, the Miami Heat came from behind to lead the Utah Jazz, only to watch Al Jefferson take the lead with a hook shot. At that point, the Heat had time for one final possession. Remember when LeBron passed up the final shot and everyone gave him huge grief about…

  18. Mavericks coach Carlisle says “patience has worn thin” with Lamar Odom

    Mar 2, 2012, 6:58 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Lamar Odom was given away for virtually nothing by the Lakers to the defending champion Mavericks before the season even began, after Odom expressed a desire to be dealt once his name surfaced in legitimate trade rumors. With Odom being the reigning Sixth Man of the Year, this seemed like an absolute steal for Dallas…

  19. Stein: Lakers may be interested in Kirk Hinrich. Laker fans, you may now be depressed.

    Mar 2, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: Keep an eye on Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich. If the Lakers can’t make a splashy move for the elite point guard they crave — a long shot at best at this point — and can’t swing a deal for top fallback choice Ramon Sessions, taking Hinrich and his $8.1 million salary…

  20. Friday And-1 links: Ramon Sessions trade talk and more

    Mar 2, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Anthony Parker, Ramon Sessions

    Here is our daily 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). Ramon Session trade rumors are still a hot topic. It may be close to the deadline when it happens but expect him to be moved.…

  21. Making the advanced statistics movement relevant to players

    Mar 2, 2012, 9:21 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Ronnie Brewer, Taj Gibson

    There is a fantastic, must read post over TrueHoop by Henry Abbott, timed to coincide with the start of the SLOAN Conference — THE sports statistics conference — going on at MIT in Boston this weekend. Abbott’s point is a good one: It’s one thing for a front office to have a bunch of advanced…

  22. Stein: Odom to play in one D-League game before returning

    Mar 1, 2012, 6:46 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: Lamar Odom latest: Sources tell ESPN that Odom likely to play one game (Saturday) for Mavs’ D-League affiliate to “get his legs back” Odom has missed the last three games for the Mavericks due to personal reasons, all of which the Mavericks have lost. Odom has struggled this season, and is…

  23. Report: Odom meets with Cuban, will return to Mavs soon

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:34 PM EDT

    Shawn Marion, Lamar Odom, Vince Carter

    Personal issues surrounding an illness with his father have kept Lamar Odom away from the Mavericks since before the All-Star break. But it’s more than just that — the entire fit with Dallas has been poor this season. Odom has not seemed happy and he is not one of those players who can compartmentalize his…

  24. Nowitzki leaves game with back pain, questionable for Friday

    Mar 1, 2012, 10:23 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki played just 10 minutes on Wednesday — scoring one point on one shot attempt — before heading to the locker room with back pain that kept him out the rest of the night. While this does not appear to be anything serious or long-term, his status for the Mavericks game Wednesday is up…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bulls look every bit the contender

    Mar 1, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah

    What you missed while realizing that it’s time to turn off the autocorrect on your phone before someone gets hurt…. Bulls 96, Spurs 89: That is why the Chicago Bulls are contenders. They played a fantastic game behind Derrick Rose, who had 29 points and made all the big plays at the end, including a…
