    Dec 1, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin has a had a multitude of extremely athletic dunks that have humiliated defenders throughout his career, but the one he threw down over Timofey Mozgov is what most people point to as Griffin’s signature slam dunk highlight. Griffin tried to add Roy Hibbert of the Pacers to his posterization reel on Sunday, and…

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    The Knicks battled back from a 10-point fourth quarter deficit in Denver on Friday, and had a chance to send the game into overtime in the final possession of regulation.

    Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl watches his team play against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoffs in Denver

    Denver looked like a team that could do a lot of damage in the playoffs last season – they won 57 games, the players bought into the style George Karl was preaching, and they were a disruptive if not elite defense. Then Danilo Gallinari went down and they were never the same. On either end…

    There were no games on Thanksgiving to bring you highlights from, so we have one more from Wednesday night.

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

    Nov 27, 2013, 7:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The Denver Nuggets are making 69.9 percent of their free throws. Which is not good, even if there are two teams that are worse (Charlotte and Detroit, thank you Andre Drummond). Coach Brian Shaw was using his head trying to come up with ways to get the team to shoot better from the stripe, when…

  7. Dirk Nowitzki warned for flop vs. Nuggets (VIDEO)

    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…

  8. The Extra Pass: Behind San Antonio’s hot start and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    At least in the standings, the San Antonio Spurs are as good as they’ve ever been. By walloping the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, San Antonio tied their franchise best for a start to the season. The Spurs are 13-1 now and winners of 11 straight games. What can you say? I ran out of…

  10. DeAndre Jordan’s monster rejection of Russell Westbrook (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There is no more athletic center in the NBA than DeAndre Jordan (maybe JaVale McGee, it’s close). He’s fast and leaps out of the building. Which why he has some spectacular blocks, like this one on Russell Westbrook Thursday night. Best part of this? Jordan didn’t swat it into the third row, rather it stayed…

  11. The Extra Pass: Busting myths surrounding Blake Griffin, and Thursday’s recaps

    Nov 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    In his first season playing in the league, Blake Griffin crushed any and all expectations. Now, just a few years later, he can’t seem to get out from under the weight of them. Without diving in too deep as to why that is, it’s probably fair to say that Griffin isn’t treated as even-handedly as…

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    While most teams are feeling out deals and moving patiently with their big trade chips to see how the market shakes out — see the Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets as examples 1A and 1B — the new regime in Sacramento is feeling a little more impatient. They have veterans available and they are looking…

  15. Russell Westbrook crosses-up Hickson to put dagger in Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Denver would not go away. Kevin Durant hit a three a minute before that felt like a dagger but Denver kept coming back, getting within striking distance. So Russell Westbrook put his own dagger in. With style. Up two with less than 30 seconds left he drove, got by his man then just crossed up…

  16. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  17. PBT Extra: Talking early season NBA trade rumors

    Nov 18, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo shouts instructions from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Normally trade rumors don’t really get going until Christmas, but like an early snowstorm we’ve been hit with a blanket of rumors to start this season, so Kay Adams and I break them down. No, Rondo is not going to the Knicks, New York simply doesn’t have the pieces to make that work. Plus I…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  19. Report: Knicks could deal Shumpert because he’s only tradable asset

    Nov 15, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert

    The New York Knicks are 3-5 and things are so bad the dancers have stopped dancing (by the owners orders). This is not what Knicks management (or fans) expected, but with Tyson Chandler out a month (at least) it’s hard to see how things take a serious turn for the better in the short term.…

  20. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

    UPDATE 6:08 pm: The Kenneth Faried for Iman Shumpert talks are dead, at least according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, who tweeted this: Denver has made it clear to Kenneth Faried’s reps: There are no active talks involving him. Knicks offered Shumpert. Denver rejected idea. Of course, if you were trying to negotiate a…

  23. Warriors’ owner says Iguodala sent word during playoffs he liked Golden State

    Nov 13, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Denver was a 57-win team last season, but one that lost a star player to injury (Danilo Gallinari) then was bounced in the first round by Golden State. Still, after that success the upheaval they underwent this summer was a surprise — gone was the GM to Toronto, the coach was fired, and their biggest…
