  1. Monday NBA grades: Tyreke Evans has found the beat in New Orleans

    Mar 25, 2014, 1:55 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Pelicans

    Shhh, don’t tell anyone, but Tyreke Evans has been playing well lately in New Orleans. Also, LeBron James is good at basketball.

  2. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EST

    Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker

    San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

  3. Timofey Mozgov’s revenge (sorry, Josh Smith)

    Mar 20, 2014, 12:08 PM EST

    Josh Smith, Timofey Mozgov

    Timofey Mozgov, most famous for getting dunked on by Blake Griffin, can dunk a little bit himself. Just ask Josh Smith. This wasn’t totally Smith’s fault –  who was Greg Monroe defending on that pick-and-roll? – but there’s no coming back from that. Smith was ejected later in the game.

  4. Kyle Lowry regrets how he handled time with Houston Rockets

    Mar 20, 2014, 11:20 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Kyle Lowry

    Rockets replacing Rick Adelman with Kevin McHale caused friction.

  5. Pistons’ Andre Drummond out Wednesday, questionable Friday with neck injury

    Mar 17, 2014, 3:27 PM EST

    Andre Drummond

    After injuring his neck against the Pacers he is out against the Nuggets Wednesday and maybe longer. Pistons should not rush him back.

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs, Clippers are your clear top two

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  7. Anthony Davis’ 40-20 game by the numbers

    Mar 17, 2014, 9:15 AM EST

    Celtics Pelicans Basketball

    The 2012 draft already looks like it will go down as one of the NBA’s stronger ones ever. Andre Drummond is incredibly promising. Damian Lillard won Rookie of the Year and is even better this season. But there’s no doubt, if the draft were re-done, Anthony Davis would remain the No. 1 pick. Days like…

  8. Pistons’ Andre Drummond leaves game with head/neck injury (VIDEO)

    Mar 15, 2014, 8:59 PM EST

    2014 BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge

    How Detroit’s Andre Drummond staggered and went down after this hit, and how he stayed down for several minutes (all the way through the ensuing commercial break not part of the above video), is a little frightening. The medical staff brought out a stretcher but he got up under his own power and was helped…

  9. Pacers to sit Andrew Bynum for Friday’s game in Philadelphia

    Mar 13, 2014, 8:23 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Indiana Pacers

    Andrew Bynum looked strong in his Pacers debut on Tuesday, scoring eight points and grabbing 10 rebounds in just 15 minutes of action against an undersized Celtics front line. Even with three days off before his team’s next game, however, Bynum is going to be held out on Friday — a game that’ll be played…

  10. Interesting stat: Teams score better in crunch time when they don’t call timeout

    Mar 13, 2014, 4:09 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Coaches are micromanagers almost by nature. They want control, they want to set things up. So in crunch time, when their team needs a bucket, they almost inevitably call a timeout to set up a play. Of course, that also lets the defense make substitutions and set themselves up as well, but coaches want that…

  11. PBT Power Rankings: Tell me again how the Spurs are too old….

    Mar 10, 2014, 2:41 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    And the first Eastern Conference team comes in at …

  12. Extra Pass: Are the Detroit Pistons putting a new twist on tanking or being lousy?

    Mar 10, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.

  13. Brandon Jennings: Detroit Pistons don’t hold themselves accountable

    Mar 9, 2014, 11:00 PM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Josh Smith

    “With good teams, somebody sees somebody messing up, then you tell them. Straight up.”

  14. Josh Smith fantasizes about playing with Rajon Rondo again

    Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    Just like old times at Oak Hill Academy?

  15. PBT And-1 Links: Roy Hibbert’s new bed is ginormous

    Mar 5, 2014, 8:47 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Pharrell Williams loves the Arby’s hat… • Roy Hibbert got a new…

  16. Report: Joe Dumars, frustrated with criticism, expected to be out as Pistons’ general manager

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:07 AM EST

    Joe Dumars

    Joe Dumars might not be replaced by Isiah Thomas, but it still seems unlikely Dumars will return next season as the Detroit Pistons’ general manager. Dumars is in the final season of his contract. Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach. And he didn’t make a move at the trade deadline. All signs…

  17. Monday night NBA grades: Masked LeBron James is a bad mutha (Shut your mouth)

    Mar 4, 2014, 3:37 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

  18. Chauncey Billups considering retirement

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:33 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups, Courtney Lee, Andre Drummond

    Chauncey Billups has been a star, a role player and a buried bench player. He’s played for winners and losers. He’s been young and old. He’s seen it all, and as one of the NBA’s smartest players, he’s learned it all. So, he knows where his career is headed. Billups, who recently had knee surgery,…

  19. Report: Pistons considering hiring Isiah Thomas as general manager

    Mar 2, 2014, 9:30 AM EST

    Isiah Thomas

    Isiah Thomas, as general manager of the New York Knicks, built loser after loser, pulverized the team’s cap structure and exposed Madison Square Garden to an eight-digit sexual-harassment lawsuit. Just the man who deserves another chance to run a team. That’s reportedly the logic of Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores, who could be weeks from…

  20. Manu Ginobili’s shoe disintegrates during game (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:15 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v San Antonio Spurs

    I have seen Manu Ginobili swat a bat out of the air during an NBA game, but I have never seen anything like that. You just have to watch the video. With less than a minute to go in the first half Ginobili is in good defensive position sliding and trying to keep Rodney Stuckey…

  21. Klay Thompson destroys Kyle Singler with the fast break slam (VIDEO)

    Feb 25, 2014, 9:35 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Klay Thompson is known as an outside shooter more than anything else, but he showed some athleticism on this fast break slam where he absolutely destroys Kyle Singler of the Pistons. The best part (after Singler’s punch-drunk reaction, of course) might have been Thompson calling his shot of sorts earlier in the season.

  22. Pistons’ Will Bynum finds Jonas Jerebko with the behind-the-back pass for the huge slam (VIDEO)

    Feb 23, 2014, 9:30 AM EST

    Jerebko_Jonas

    This isn’t exactly a highlight featuring the game’s biggest stars or one of its glamor franchises, but it was a pretty basketball play nonetheless. Detroit’s Will Bynum uses the screen and then goes between two defenders to create some space. He then finds Jonas Jerebko with a nifty behind-the-back pass, and Jerebko puts the ball…

  23. Andre Drummond throws down a monster fast break slam, Coach Sheed celebrates hard on the bench (VIDEO)

    Feb 22, 2014, 12:30 PM EST

    Rasheed Wallace

    Rasheed Wallace was always a fan favorite during his playing days, not only because of the way the talented big man played the game, but mainly because of the unbridled emotion he showed while doing so. Sure, Wallace often led the league in technical fouls, but his passion for the game came through on a…

  24. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…
