    Washington Wizards v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reminding yourself not to make love to a pizza…. Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards. That is why Washington needed Marcin Gorat. It may have taken John Wall a while to realize it — there were some rough patches at the start — but Gortat has…

  2. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

    Nov 26, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping. Nowitzki earned his in the third quarter of the Mavericks’ loss to Denver Monday night, when Darrell Arthur closed out and contested the jumper and Nowitzki fell like he was reenacting the Kennedy…

    JaVale McGee

    The Nuggets have struggled their way to a 1-4 start to the season, and things just got worse with the loss of one of the team’s starting big men. #Nuggets C JaVale McGee has a stress fracture in his left tibia.

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Last season: After totaling up 56 wins in the regular season, the Memphis Grizzlies got sweet revenge over the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, then extinguished a short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder team before finally falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. This was the best season in franchise history by a large…

  6. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Oct 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Last season: The Nuggets finished the regular season with the best home record in the league, and a franchise best 57 wins, good for the three seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Then, they were bounced out of the first round by the Golden State Warriors in six games. George Karl won Coach of the…

  7. Timberwolves’ Shabazz Muhammad kicked out of NBA’s Rookie Transition Program

    Aug 7, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    NBA: Summer League-Minnesota Timberwolves vs Phoenix Suns

    Shabazz Muhammad has already endured his fair share of controversy for a rookie that has yet to play in an NBA game. The controversy doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon, however, as the Minnesota Timberwolves’ first-round pick got into some trouble at the NBA’s Rookie Transition Program this weekend. Muhammad was sent home Tuesday…

  8. Report: Grizzlies trade Darrell Arthur to Nuggets for Kosta Koufos

    Jun 27, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    Kosta Koufos

    One of the reasons (and there were several) that the Nuggets cited when parting ways with head coach George Karl was the fact that they were upset that Karl stubbornly started Kosta Koufos over a player who needed development in JaVale McGee. That won’t be a problem for new coach Brian Shaw, since Denver has…

  9. Spurs/Grizzlies preview: Game 2 will be closer, but will that be enough for Memphis?

    May 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    Game 2 is not going to look like Game 1. Memphis is not going to get its doors blown off from the opening tip as happened in their Game 1 loss. You can expect better pick and roll defense out of Memphis. You can also expect better ball movement and more Zach Randolph. You can…

  10. Chris Paul’s game-winner at the buzzer sends Clippers to Memphis with a 2-0 series lead

    Apr 23, 2013, 3:38 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Chris Paul scores the game-winning basket against the Memphis Grizzlies in Los Angeles

    LOS ANGELES — The Grizzlies may have given their best shot to the Clippers in Monday’s Game 2, correcting virtually all of the mistakes they made in the first game of the series. Thanks to the buzzer-beating heroics of Chris Paul, however, everything Memphis had wasn’t good enough. L.A. pulled out the thrilling 93-91 victory…

  11. Chris Paul with crazy game winner to put Clippers up 2-0 (VIDEO)

    Apr 23, 2013, 2:05 AM EDT

    BKN--GRIZZLIES-CLIPPERS

    Chris Paul is a superstar. That right there is why you have superstars on your team. Paul got the ball out high with :13 seconds left in a tie game , had a very good and physical defender on him in Tony Allen, drove and was physical right back, got away with a pushoff but…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers win with offense. Again.

    Feb 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Al Horford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching a toddler drain trick shot after trick shot… Lakers 92, Nets 83: Up until this game I was still sure the Lakers were not a playoff team, that the recent streak would not be enough for the hole they dug. But…

  13. Thunder look cool (except for Westbrook who got hot) in easy win over Grizzlies

    Feb 1, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless tries to defend against against Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    It was a perfect storm of bad for Memphis — they trade their leading scorer Rudy Gay, who is out shopping for a much more extensive winter wardrobe, but his replacements (Tayshaun Prince, Ed Davis and Austin Daye) have yet to arrive. Then you are on the road against a rested Oklahoma City team who…

  14. The Extra Pass: Analyzing a potential Memphis-Toronto deal

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme.

    Jan 24, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while working on your eyelid weightlifting…. Grizzlies 106, Lakers 93: The Lakers added injury to insult when Dwight Howard re-aggravated his shoulder problem in the first half, and the Grizzlies took full advantage by recording 16 offensive rebounds and 60 points in the…

  16. Quincy Pondexter has sprained MCL, out indefinitely

    Dec 31, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Jae Crowder, Quincy Pondexter

    Quincy Pondexter has been giving the Grizzlies 23 minutes a night… not great minutes (6.7 points per game) but he was defending and knocking down threes at a 42 percent clip. However they are not going to have that for a while — he had to be carried off the court on Sunday night after…

  17. NBA issues flopping warnings to Royal Ivey, Gustavo Ayon and Tony Parker

    Dec 30, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    Tony Parker? Flop? Well, I never! The NBA has officially warned Parker, Royal Ivey and Gustavo Ayon today for violating the anti-flopping policy established this season. While this is solely a warning for all three players, if they’re accused of violating the policy again, they will be subject to a $5,000 dollar fine. Parker’s flop…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Serge Ibaka is to be feared as Thunder beat Spurs

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:05 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Ibaka plays against San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while thinking “if you’re going to play Santa make sure you fit down the chimney”….

  19. Report: Grizzlies Darrell Arthur fractures leg. Ugh.

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:17 PM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    UPDATE 6:17 pm: Good news, as fractures go this isn’t too bad. It is a non-displaced fracture that is going to keep him out of action for a few weeks, reports Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. With training camp opening in a week he will not be ready to go yet, but for the start of…

  20. The Inbounds: How the West will almost-but-not-actually be won

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…

  21. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  22. O.J. Mayo unrestricted free agent, Boston Celtics interested

    Jun 29, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    O.J. Mayo is on the open market. Memphis made qualifying offers to Marreese Speights and Darrell Arthur — they can now match any offers other teams make to those two — but chose not to make a similar offer to Mayo, tweets the Commercial Appeal. That makes the four-year veteran an unrestricted free agent. Any…

  23. Zach Randolph out up to 8 weeks with torn knee ligaments

    Jan 4, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    It looked bad when it happened, but the Grizzlies said it was just a bruise. No, it’s bad, bad news and they are singing the blues in Memphis. Zach Randolph will be out up to two months with a tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, reports the Commercial Appeal. The injury…

  24. It’s official, Grizzlies Arthur out for season with torn Achilles

    Dec 20, 2011, 9:13 AM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    We knew it looked bad when it happened Saturday, and now the worst has been confirmed. Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur will be out for the season with a torn Achilles, reports the Commercial Appeal. There is a six-to-12 month recovery time. Arthur is a versatile backup big — he can play the four or the…

  25. Grizzlies’ Darrell Arthur suffers “serious Achilles injury”

    Dec 18, 2011, 5:39 PM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    Darrell Arthur came into his own last season. After injuries plagued his first two seasons, Arthur emerged as a legitimate weapon for the Grizzlies. He spent an inordinate amount of time working on his mid-range last year and became the Grizzlies’ best pick-and-pop weapon. When the Spurs decided in the playoffs to pick their poison…
