    Lance Stephenson

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while weeping that Lionel Messi will be out 6-8 weeks…. Lance Stephenson, Indiana Pacers. He had a triple-double with 13 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. He has played the most complete, efficient basketball of his young NBA career this season and it showed…

  2. J.J. Hickson throws down the big-time jam over Marvin Williams (VIDEO)

    J.J. Hickson got the start for the Nuggets on Monday in place of the injured JaVale McGee, and at least early on, he made sure that his impact on the game would be noticed. Hickson elevated and threw down the two-handed jam over Utah’s Marvin Williams, in a play sure to make highlight reels everywhere…

  3. 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…

    JaVale McGee

    PHOENIX – Markieff Morris complained in the Suns locker room following the team’s wild 114-101 win over the Nuggets on Friday, despite posting a career high 28 points which included the monster putback slam over Timofey Mozgov seen in the video clip above. Morris was one of the last players to leave, hitting the cold…

    Nov 9, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    PHOENIX – The Suns improved to 4-2 on the young season with a 114-103 win over the Nuggets on Friday, in a contest that saw some extremely wild swings in both score and momentum before the night was through. The first half was all Phoenix, as they followed up a 35-point first quarter by holding Denver…

  7. The Extra Pass: Boxed out and Thursday’s Recaps

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Phoenix Suns

    You probably already know what I’m going to say about Shane Battier before I even say it. For 12 seasons, Battier has largely defied conventional box scores by doing all the things that don’t show up there. It’s been a long-standing feud between Battier and the box score, really, but it’s a feud that Battier…

  8. Thursday night NBA grades: Steve Blake, Ty Lawson come up big late

    Nov 8, 2013, 3:42 AM EDT

    Dwayne Wade, Erik Spoelstra, David Fizdale

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while playing Call of Duty Ghosts like everyone else…. Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat. For two straight games now we have had vintage Wade show up, which has to make Heat fans happy. He was attacking J.J. Redick on post ups or blowing past…

  9. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  10. Portland’s LaMarcus Aldridge: “I’m happy here right now”

    Nov 5, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    Much to the disgust of GM Neil Olshey, reports of an unhappy LaMarcus Aldridge and possible trades would not go away over the past year. No matter what Aldridge said. Or Olshey. Or anyone. Aldridge admitted to Sam Amick of the USA Today there were some things that made him uncomfortable last year in Portland,…

  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…

  13. DeMarcus Cousins was in beast mode, dropped 30 and 14 in opener (VIDEO)

    Oct 31, 2013, 11:28 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Nate Robinson

    DeMarcus Cousins got his max extension, and while some questioned the move the questions were not about talent — he can be the best center in the league in five years (or less) if he wants it. Wednesday night he showed that off against the Nuggets, dropping 30 points and pulling down 14 rebounds on…

  14. 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…

  15. Ty Lawson will play for Nuggets in opener at Kings

    Oct 30, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    Denver is going to be able to throw one of the best point guard combinations in the NBA at the Sacramento Kings opening night. Ty Lawson was a game-time call due to a groin strain but coach Brian Shaw said at shootaround that Lawson would be good to go Wednesday, reports Chris Dempsey of the…

  16. Five NBA players likely to get traded this season

    Oct 29, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Jameer Nelson

    When I started compiling this list more than a week ago, Marcin Gortat was the guy on top of it — then his trade happened earlier than anyone expected. The Wizards want to make the playoffs this year, the Suns want to tank and so they had a common ground. Now who is most likely…

  17. Record 92 foreign players on NBA rosters to start season

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    SPO-BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    Just in case you had any doubt the NBA is a global league at the forefront of a global game… There are a record 92 foreign players on NBA rosters to start the season hailing from 39 countries, the league announced. That is more than 20 percent of the league. The number is up from…

  18. Wilson Chandler out for Nuggets opener, Lawson may join him

    Oct 29, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    Wilson Chandler

    It’s not really a surprise, Wilson Chandler has been battling a hamstring injury for weeks and those are slow to heal, but now it is official: Chandler is on the Nuggets inactive list for the season opener Wednesday at Sacramento. That is certainly a blow because in an ideal world the Nuggets rotation at the…

  19. Brian Shaw leaning toward starting Hickson over Faried opening night

    Oct 29, 2013, 12:44 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    If you wondered why reports had surfaced that Denver was shopping around Kenneth Faried, here’s a hint as to why. Nuggets’ coach Brian Shaw is leaning toward starting J.J. Hickson over Kenneth Faried in the Nuggets opener Wednesday at Sacramento (via the Nuggets twitter account). Part of that is that Faried is coming off a…

  20. Nate Robinson isn’t sure why teams overlook him, but he’s sure he likes Brian Shaw

    Oct 28, 2013, 7:08 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson

    When Nate Robinson catches fire, there is no better show in the NBA. What playoff quarter was more entertaining than his 23-point fourth quarter in the first round of the playoffs against Brooklyn in Game 4, when Robinson single handedly forced overtime? He’s the shortest player in the NBA, a fan favorite everywhere and he…

  21. New Uncle Drew spot is out (we have it), Nate Robinson is in it and tells PBT about it

    Oct 28, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    pepsi-max-kyrie-irving-uncle-drew

    Not a lot of commercials create a buzz, but the new “Pepsi MAX & Kyrie Irving Present: Uncle Drew Chapter 3” has had it for weeks. The series where Irving plays Uncle Drew, an old baller getting his team back together, going out to a park and schooling the “kids” is just classic. If in…

    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…

  23. Ty Lawson may miss season opener for Nuggets

    Oct 28, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    People in the “Denver can again make the playoffs camp” will grant you that Andre Iguodala is gone and Danilo Gallinari will not be back until likely sometime after Thanksgiving, but they say the Nuggets still have a lot from last season’t 57-win team. Such as Ty Lawson… except they may not have him Wednesday…

    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…

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Who is going to be your League Pass team this season (the team outside the brightest spotlights that you keep finding yourself drawn to when there are…
