  1. Kobe Bryant practices, says he thinks he can return this month (no, not Friday)

    Nov 19, 2013, 6:01 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant practiced on Tuesday — a full five-on-five practice with the Lakers — the first of three days of practice for the Lakers. Then he spoke to the media after the game pumping up the mythology of his near invincibility. But don’t expect him to play Friday night. Kobe practiced and spoke to the…

  2. Jimmy Butler misses practice, needs MRI

    Nov 19, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    Jimmy Butler – after suffering right toe injury in the third quarter of the Bulls’ win over the Bobcats on Monday, returning in the fourth quarter and then leaving again – pledged to be ready for Chicago’s next game. Via Mark Strotman of CSN Chicago: “I hurt it. I don’t really know how. But it’s…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. Derrick Rose and Kirk Hinrich could become dangerous backcourt combination

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:10 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls signed Kirk Hinrich before last season for two reasons: 1. Hinrich is starting-point guard caliber, someone who capable of filling in at the position while Derrick Rose was injured. 2. Once Rose got healthy, Hinrich could play with Rose in the backcourt. Hinrich held up his end of the bargain for No. 1.…

  6. Luol Deng, Derrick Rose ensure Pacers undefeated no more

    Nov 16, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Bulls vs. Cavaliers

    It was just one of those nights for Indiana. A few times a season teams have games where they just can’t do anything right. Indiana’s first off night of the season — and the first night their defense took a vacation — came in Chicago on the night the Bulls found their missing groove on…

  7. PBT Podcast for Nov. 16: Talking Bulls with Aggrey Sam, plus some Omer Asik

    Nov 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose Chicago Bulls

    It’s time for the latest edition of the PBT Podcast (which was supposed to go up Friday night but we ran into technical issues, so sorry for a couple dated references). This time myself (of this blog) and Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio talk about the Chicago Bulls start with Aggrey Sam of CSNChicago.com. We discuss…

  8. Pacers improve to 9-0 with blowout win over Bucks

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Andre Drummond

    The Pacers remain undefeated after running their league-best record to 9-0 with a blowout 104-77 win over the Bucks. Milwaukee is a depleted team right now due to multiple players being injured, and there’s not nearly enough depth to sustain even one starter being out, much less multiple productive players. Larry Sanders, Caron Butler, and…

  9. 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…

  10. Three things to watch this weekend: Can the Pacers keep winning? The Nets stop losing?

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert Pacers

    There are a lot of interesting subplots we at PBT will watch as we head into this weekend — such ask, how loud can Sacramento Kings fans yell? — but here are the three things worth watching out for between going to you kid’s talent show and soccer games…. 1) Can the Pacers improve to…

  11. Derrick Rose misses shootaround, “unlikely” to play Friday vs. Toronto

    Nov 15, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose tweaked his hamstring Monday night in the Bulls win over the Cavaliers (a game in which Rose was 8-of-21). It was described as “minor” — he was walking around, not limping — but hamstrings can be tricky things that need rest. Rose sat out practice Wednesday, then Friday he sat out shootaround in…

  12. NBA shows off sleeved Christmas Day uniforms in “Jingle Hoops” ad

    nba christmas day sleeved jerseys

    I know it’s too early for Christmas ads already (I’m one of those guys who doesn’t want to see this stuff until Thanksgiving) but this ad from Adidas showing off the “BIG Logo” Holiday Collection uniforms — which have sleeves and oversized logos on the front, pictures leaked last week — was good enough to bring…

  13. Report: Knicks’ long-term plan is to keep ‘Melo then recruit Kevin Love

    Nov 12, 2013, 6:13 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Corey Brewer

    We at PBT danced around this a little earlier talking about how Minnesota is willing to make moves to win now in an effort to put a winner around Kevin Love so he will not leave. It’s a long, long ways off, but in the summer of 2015 Love will be the premiere free agent.…

  14. The Extra Pass: Five observations from the East and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    After a busy Monday night in the NBA, let’s swing around the Eastern Conference for a few observations. Indiana: If Roy Hibbert keeps getting that “verticality” respect from officials, it’s goodnight, Irene time for all of the other the Defensive Player of the Year candidates. Look at these numbers: Per 36 minutes on his career: 2.6…

  15. Monday night NBA Grades: Lance Stephenson with the triple double

    Nov 12, 2013, 2:12 AM EDT

    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…

  16. Derrick Rose leaves game late after suffering hamstring injury (VIDEO)

    Nov 11, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The Bulls and the Cavs played a largely defensive-oriented game devoid of very many highlights, and the one that Derrick Rose provided late as his team was pulling away forced him to leave the game with what was later described as a minor hamstring injury. Rose gave us a glimpse of his signature explosiveness as…

  17. Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving finish even as Bulls pull away to beat Cavaliers

    Nov 11, 2013, 10:52 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    There was plenty of excitement surrounding the first ever matchup between Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving on Monday, but the game itself was largely devoid of any fireworks. Irving and Rose essentially played to a standstill in a contest that was mostly defense-oriented, and one that the Bulls pulled away to win easily by a final…

  18. 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…

  19. For first time ever, Derrick Rose and Kyrie Irving face off Monday

    Nov 11, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Kyrie Irving is in his third NBA season; Derrick Rose is in his fifth. However, the two leading faces of a generation of young, star point guards have never faced off — until tonight. Blame injuries. Last season Rose was out all year. In Irving’s rookie year he missed 15 games and Rose missed 27…

  20. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  21. League reverses position, to allow Derrick Rose, others to wear kinesio tape

    Nov 6, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Yesterday, the league came to Derrick Rose and told him he had to stop wearing kinesio tape on his neck, something he had done since the second game of the season after tweaking his neck. When asked first asked, the league said it was banning kinesio tape in general, but after speaking to the NBA players union…

  22. Rose says league asked him to stop wearing tape on his neck

    Nov 6, 2013, 12:50 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Because Derrick Rose hasn’t had enough problems adjusting to this season… He tweaked a neck muscle in the Bulls season opener against the Heat, so by Game 2 on Halloween against the Knicks he was wearing some Kinesio-Tape that came up on the back of his neck to give him support. Now the league has asked…

  23. Study finds growing up in wealthier neighborhoods increases chances of making NBA

    Nov 5, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    AP Money Found

    The narrative is a strong one and something linked to the NBA today through guys like Derrick Rose — he grew up in a poor area of Chicago where basketball was his escape from the troubles around him. The game eventually provided him an escape from the neighborhood. LeBron James has a similar tale, a…

  24. Bulls coach Thibodeau says refs penalizing Derrick Rose for being a ‘nice guy’

    Nov 5, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose isn’t getting to the free throw line as much as he traditionally has in seasons past, and Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau feels like Rose’s on-court demeanor may have something to do with that. In 2012, Rose averaged 6.1 free throw attempts per game, and in his 2011 MVP season, he got to…

  25. Russell Westbrook cleared medically, will play for Thunder Sunday

    Nov 3, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook takes a break on the court against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Remember how Russell Westbrook had to have a second knee surgery to clean up a loose stitch and that was going to force him to miss the first month of the season or so? What they meant was two games. Westbrook has cleared all his medical benchmarks and is physically ready to go, so he…
