  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Memphis, for they are a force

    Apr 10, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Caron Butler, Marc Gasol

    What you missed while marveling at Japanese beer technology. Grizzlies 94, Clippers 85: Why does everyone fear the Grizzlies right now? Because they have a huge front line with skill. Because they have very good wing players. Because they have depth. Because they have won 8 of 10 and that includes victories over the Lakers,…

  2. Denver’s Harrington tears meniscus in knee, season threatened

    Apr 10, 2012, 8:27 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Chicago Bulls

    Denver really doesn’t need this in the middle of their fight for a playoff spot. During the Nuggets easy win Monday night Al Harrington tore the meniscus in his knee, reports the Denver Post. This happened during the third quarter, Harrington left the game and did not return. Usually we’d say this is the end…

  3. JaVale McGee “shocked” Wizards traded him. He was alone.

    Apr 4, 2012, 2:57 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, JaVale McGee

    The fact JaVale McGee did not know he was about to be traded pretty much sums up JaVale McGee. McGee spoke with Hoopsworld about the trade that sent him from Washington to Denver and said — while everybody else on the planet knew he was being shopped — he was surprised by the move. “I…

  4. Report: All eyes on Board of Governors meeting in Kings arena dispute

    Apr 4, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    worried george

    In a story with many chapters, it’s fitting that the book on the Maloofs’ future in the NBA will be written on April 12-13 at the league’s Board of Governors meetings. After all, it’s where the tide turned for Kings fans last year, as Kevin Johnson came out of nowhere with both the will and…

    Apr 2, 2012, 2:39 AM EDT

    Courtney Lee, Paul George

    What you missed while reading the book “Cooking with Poo”…. Thunder 92, Bulls 78: The Oklahoma City Thunder have rolled over everybody lately (that’s going to be good for them in the power rankings Monday) and their athleticism overwhelmed the Chicago in our game of the day.

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami malaise means another loss

    Mar 27, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwayne Wade and LeBron James talk during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    What you missed while being freaked out by 9-pound Gambian rats…. Knicks 89, Bucks 80: It wasn’t pretty. Actually, it was put-a-bag-over-it ugly. But with this win the Knicks are far more likely to make the playoffs, and it was our game of the night. Pacers 105, Heat 90: I don’t want to go all…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder move up to second spot

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant leaves the court after their NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Oklahoma City

    Some shifting around near the top as the Thunder go up, the Heat drop down and the Spurs hold steady. So do the Bobcats at the bottom. It’s not March Madness, but it is March setting up for a run to the playoffs. 1. Bulls (40-10, last week ranked number 1). With an undefeated week…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  11. Arron Afflalo suspended for elbow to head of Gordon Hayward

    Mar 25, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    If you saw the play — or even watched the video above — you knew this was coming. Denver’s Arron Afflalo has been suspended one game for throwing an elbow to the head of Utah’s Gordon Hayward during the third quarter of the Jazz’s win Friday night. Afflalo was ejected from that game and will…

    Carmelo Anthony, Jrue Holiday

    What you missed while being thankful a rogue boulder didn’t destroy your home and car… Knicks 82, Sixers 79: This was the ugliest win for the Knicks on their five-game winning streak, but it may also be the best. Not the best because it moves them within three games of the struggling Sixers in the…

  15. Video: JaVale McGee game winning putback dunk

    Mar 22, 2012, 3:13 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee had quite the debut with the Denver Nuggets — 15 points on the night including these two, which won the game. The Nuggets were down 3 to Detroit — mostly because Ben Gordon had gone off for 45 points — when Arron Afflalo made a spinning layup with 5.6 seconds, and drew the…

  17. Nuggets Danilo Gallinari breaks thumb, could be out month

    Mar 20, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari

    In a tight Western Conference the Denver Nuggets are only a game and a half out of the nine seed — and missing the playoffs entirely — and this is not going to help their cause. Danilo Gallinari — the leading scorer on the Nuggets with 15.6 points per game — broke the thumb on…

  18. Nuggets sign Wilson Chandler for five-years, complete Ujiri’s master plan of athletic wing army

    Mar 18, 2012, 8:37 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, Kobe Bryant

    Took them long enough, but Denver got their guy. The Denver Post reported Sunday that the Nuggets have signed free agent Wilson Chandler: Chandler spent the year in China expecting a prolonged lockout, then was released from his contract when his team was eliminated from play in the CBA and allowed to return stateside. There…

  19. A small part of why the Nuggets traded Nene: Kenneth Faried

    Mar 18, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    kenneth-faried

    So many trades are made for singular reasons. A team will need to change its identity. A relationship between a player and a coach will become toxic. A player will be leaving in free agency. But there are often times trades that “make sense, ” as the popular phraseology goes, because they’re good for multiple…

  20. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    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). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

    Wilson+Chandler+Atlanta+Hawks+v+Denver+Nuggets+Ym_wkv-B6Cgl

    The end to one of the unusual courtship dances in a while could be coming to an end. Wilson Chandler was a restricted free agent upon return from his lockout-inspired trip to play in China. He wanted either a long-term deal or a very short one that put him in the free agent market this…

  22. Mike D’Antoni resigns as coach of New York Knicks

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Something had to give with the Knicks, and it was coach Mike D’Antoni. He has resigned as coach of the New York Knicks, something first reported  by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo and since confirmed by multiple sources. The two sides described a conflicting vision of the future of the franchise and made a mutual decision…

  23. D’Antoni on way out? Trade ‘Melo? Welcome to Knicks implosion.

    Mar 14, 2012, 10:11 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Washington Wizards

    It was just more than a year ago, near the trade deadline, when the Knicks — specifically owner James Dolan — decided to trade away key players who kind of fit Mike D’Antoni’s offensive system to get Carmelo Anthony immediately. Couldn’t wait until the off-season, it had to happen right then. Following that up, last…

  24. Video: Danilo Gallinari’s ridiculous almost game-winning three

    Mar 14, 2012, 8:39 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari

    Kobe Bryant thought that was an off-balance, contested, impossible shot. But Danilo Gallinari nailed what everyone thought would be the game winner for the Nuggets over the Hawks with a corner three that few people would even have attempted. And we’re pretty sure George Karl said something like, “Great shot kid — don’t ever take…

  25. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls, Heat own top two spots. Again.

    Mar 12, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The trade deadline could really shake up the power rankings… but probably not. 1. Bulls (34-9, last week ranked number 1). The Bulls keep winning while they are banged up — Joakim Noah is back Monday for the Knicks but Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton are out. Those wins are really impressive. But the big…
