  1. Report: Bulls likely to sign D.J. Augustin once he clears waivers

    Dec 10, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    How much do the Chicago Bulls miss Derrick Rose at the point? It looks like they are going to pick up D.J. Augustin, who was waived Monday by the Toronto Raptors. So reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The Bulls lost superstar point guard Derrick Rose for the season, and have been searching for further…

  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  3. Rumor: Carmelo Anthony recruiting Rajon Rondo to come to New York in 2015

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Two

    The USA Today has a fantastic feature speaking to Rajon Rondo’s high school coach, Steve Smith (not the player Steve Smith, different guy). It’s well done, you can learn about Rondo as a young player. Then came this interesting tidbit when Smith was asked if he thought Rondo could bounce all the way back from…

  4. The Extra Pass: The shot that won’t fade away, and Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Mike Scott

    Over the years, Dirk Nowitzki has cemented his status as one of the most unguaradable players in NBA history. There have been better scorers, and there have been better shooters, but Nowitzki is second-to-none when it comes to getting his shot off. It would be easy to peg Nowitzki’s 7-foot frame as the sole reason…

  5. Thursday night NBA Grades: Mike Woodson is allowed to exhale

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Our nightly grades from around the NBA, or what you missed while singing Doe, a deer, a female deer… Ray, a drop of golden sun… Mike Woodson, coach New York Knicks. For a night, the Knicks looked pretty good and so Woodson can sleep without the Sword of Damocles hanging over his head. The core…

  6. Boozer, Bulls too much for Heat (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    This is the Chicago Bulls that are hard to beat, Derrick Rose or no Derrick Rose. Since Rose went down with a torn meniscus the Bulls have struggled at both ends of the floor — they had been giving up 13 more points per 100 possessions defensively than they had with Rose. That was just…

  7. Dwyane Wade out Thursday night for Heat vs. Bulls due to illness

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:51 PM EDT

    d wade

    Dwyane Wade missed the Heat shootaround on Thursday, he was back at the hotel with what the team called “flu like symptoms.” That will now keep him out of the Heat’s game Thursday night against the Bulls, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. Wade has missed several games this season to rest his knees,…

  8. Derrick Rose to those doubting his return: “You can be a fool if you want to”

    Dec 5, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Portland Trail Blazers

    “I’m not done.” That quote sums up what Derrick Rose said in about 25 different ways during his first press conference since tearing his meniscus, an injury that required surgery and is expected to sideline him for the season. The press conference was streamed on CSNChicago.com. Rose was asked what he would say to those…

  10. PBT Extra: Focusing on “epic showdown” between Knicks, Nets

    Dec 4, 2013, 3:58 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    When TNT worked with the NBA to set up its Thursday showcase schedule, this Thursday seemed like a ratings spike — the defending Atlantic Division champion Knicks with Carmelo Anthony against the new Kidd on the block in the Brooklyn Nets. Then a showdown between Derrick Rose‘s Bulls and the two-time defending champion Heat. The…

  11. DeMarcus Cousins jokes about being out for year, getting comeback commercial

    Dec 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Sacramento Kings

    DeMarcus Cousins sat out the Kings loss to the Thunder Tuesday night with an ankle injury. When asked if he would be ready to go Friday, he decided to play comedian. Don’t tempt fate, DeMarcus. Derrick Rose may not think it’s funny but Cousins’ comments sounded like a lot of people on twitter who have…

  12. Bulls GM still hopes to re-sign Luol Deng

    Dec 3, 2013, 7:51 PM EDT

    deng

    Luol Deng and the Bulls were unable to come to an agreement on a contract extension, and as a result the two-time All-Star will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the season. Deng is finishing out a high-priced deal that will pay him $14.2 million this year, and…

  13. Pelicans, Bulls play 3OT thriller (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 11:58 AM EDT

    Bulls vs. Pelicans

    Maybe  you were focused on watching the Seahawks mop the floor with the Saints. Or you were watching the Trail Blazers quality come-from-behind win over the Pacers. Or you just really want to know how somebody met your mother. Whatever else you were doing Monday night, if you missed the Pelicans’ 3OT win over the…

  14. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  15. Jrue Holiday with the driving game winner in 3OT (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 1:18 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Chicago Bulls

    Chicago and New Orleans played one of the more epic matches of the season on Monday night — it wasn’t always pretty, but it was epic. And long. Triple-overtime long. There was no Derrick Rose, no Anthony Davis, yet still some good offense from both sides led by Luol Deng (37 points) and Ryan Anderson…

  16. Report: Marc Gasol could be back with Grizzlies in month or less

    Nov 29, 2013, 9:29 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The sooner the better for Memphis. The trend right now among NBA teams is to say a guy is out “indefinitely” with an injury and not give a timetable. (Unless you’re the Knicks, then every injury is day-to-day, even when it’s not.) You can thank Derrick Rose for that, nobody wants to give the impression…

  17. PBT Roundtable: Who’s third best in the East?

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question:  The Heat and the Pacers have been the clear class of the Eastern Conference so far, but who is the third best team there right now? Who will be at the end of the…

    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…

  19. Bulls not going to make moves thinking making a run this season

    Nov 27, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    deng

    Derrick Rose is done for the year and when he went under the knife the Bulls championship dreams for this year went under as well. Does it have to? Can the Bulls retool and make a run this year? No. I’ve been asked that a couple times (via email and on a sports talk radio…

  20. John Wall: ‘I’m the best point guard in the league’

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall has played pretty well lately. In his last three games, he’s averaging 33.0 points on 61.4 percent shooting, 6.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest. The Wizards are 2-1 in that span. It’s a fantastic three-game stretch, but let’s not get carried away. Aw, shoot, let’s get carried away. "I'm the…

  22. 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…

  23. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose waits for the start of a media interview at the start of the team's training camp at the Berto Arena in Chicago, Illinois

    Injuries changed the landscape of the NBA this weekend and Kay Adams and myself talk about it on the latest PBT Extra. First, with Derrick Rose out for the season in Chicago — and repairing the meniscus was the right move — big questions start to face their front office: Do you let Luol Deng…

  25. West now 44-17 vs. East so far this season

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    Remember before the season there were some pundits saying the Eastern Conference was finally catching up with the West in terms of depth of talent? Um, not so much. So far this young season, the West is 44-17 against the East (numbers updated from Jeff Caplan’s story at NBA.com). Or, look at it this way…
