  1. NBA Power Rankings: Streakers go to front of the line

    Mar 25, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Obviously the Heat are undefeated in their last 10 games, but in the East the Brooklyn Nets are the only team with a better than .500 record in their last 10 games. Which is why after the Heat the next five spots on this list come from the Western Conference. 1. Heat (54-14, last week…

  2. Pistons’ Bynum could be shut down for season due to hand

    Mar 25, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Will Bynum

    Will Bynum has had his moments for the Detroit Pistons this season — as a designated scorer coming off the bench he’s averaging 9.3 points a game but has had 13 games with more than 15 points including 23 against the Trail Blazers recently. But he has been playing through pain in his hand since…

  3. Jose Calderon finds Jonas Jerebko with the two-handed bounce pass through traffic (VIDEO)

    Mar 23, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Jose Calderon

    This was a pretty great pass from Jose Calderon to Jonas Jerebko, which took place during the portion of the Pistons’ game against the Heat on Friday where Detroit still had a fighting chance. Two-handed bounce pass, through trafic, to a cutting Jerebko who finished with the reverse jam. That’s enough for me to make…

  4. Heat extend win streak to 25 straight games after toying with the Detroit Pistons

    Mar 22, 2013, 11:38 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates a basket against Detroit Pistons during NBA game in Miami

    Technically speaking, the win streak of the Miami Heat, which has now reached 25 straight games after a 103-89 home win over the Pistons on Friday, is in jeopardy every time the Heat take the floor and the ball is tipped off, no matter the quality level of the opponent they may be facing. In…

  5. Andre Drummond remains out, but did go through full practice

    Mar 21, 2013, 10:37 AM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    UPDATE 3:01 pm: Just to make me look bad, Andre Drummond went through a full practice on Thursday, tweets Keith Langlois of Pistons.com. He described Drummond as “upbeat.” There is officially still no timetable for his return. Everyone will want to wait a day and see how his back and body respond to the workout.…

  6. Coach Frank calls Pistons “disheartening to watch”

    Mar 20, 2013, 3:50 PM EDT

    Lawrence Frank

    It’s been a rough season for the Pistons, but the last few weeks in particular have been very tough — they have lost nine games in a row, the most recent a 37-point drubbing at the hands of the Nets. They are without Andre Drummond (back issues) and without any real spark. In their last…

  7. LeBron James savoring big dunk over Jason Terry

    Mar 20, 2013, 3:25 PM EDT

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    LeBron James has had his share of big dunks in the NBA… and a few other people’s shares. To the point he doesn’t linger over them much. Usually. But the Celtics Jason Terry was dismissive of the Heat and their winning streak before the two teams met Monday night, so LeBron seemed pretty happy to…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Western teams jockey for position behind Heat.

    Mar 18, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    Kings Heat Basketball

    It’s Miami and then everyone else right now — but notice the next six teams in our weekly power rankings are from the West. That’s because the play of the second tier teams in the East has fallen off (Indiana, New York, Brooklyn) 1. Heat (51-14, last week ranked No. 1). What kind of concerns…

  9. DeAndre Jordan throws down the windmill jam against the Knicks (VIDEO)

    Mar 17, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Ersan Ilyasova

    DeAndre Jordan got loose on the fast break early in the Clippers’ contest against the Knicks, and made sure to finish with some style by throwing down the thunderous windmill jam. This wasn’t quite on the level of DeAndre’s destruction of Brandon Knight, but not bad for an early Sunday afternoon start.

    Ty Lawson, Tim Thomas, Chris Copeland

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were watching the papal seagull….. Heat 98, 76ers 94: There was a time this season when the Heat were coasting and this was the kind of game where they just didn’t bring any heart. But now they have something to play…

  11. You can get DeAndre Jordan’s dunk face on a T-shirt

    Mar 13, 2013, 2:37 PM EDT

    Nice.-Image-via-Under-Armour

    DeAndre Jordan’s dunk over Brandon Knight was an instant YouTube sensation (that post is the most viewed on this site in the past week) and spawned a rash of memes (the Brandon Knight R.I.P. being the biggest if most misplaced). But maybe the best part of the video (after the dunk itself) was Jordan’s face…

  12. After everything else, Pistons had to take cold shower after loss to Jazz

    Mar 12, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Andre Drummond

    I’m not sure what the Pistons players did in their past lives to deserve this karma, but it must have been something. Not only have they lost six in a row, not only is star rookie Andre Drummond still out, not only did Brandon Knight get dunked on then sprained his ankle and will be…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Knicks take night off (except they had a game)

    Mar 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

  14. Brandon Knight’s week gets worse, leaves game against Jazz with ankle sprain

    Mar 11, 2013, 10:03 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Tyson Chandler, Jason Kidd

    Brandon Knight seems like a nice enough guy, but perhaps that wasn’t the case in a previous life. It’s been a rough season for Knight, with Sunday night’s obliteration at the hands of DeAndre Jordan leading the list of events that haven’t exactly gone his way. Players will always take embarrassment over injury, however, so…

    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.

  16. NBA Power Rankings: After the Heat it gets interesting

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week. Those games don’t foreshadow playoff outcomes as much as hint at seedings — if Denver can get home court in the first round whoever has to face them is in trouble.…

  17. Pistons’ Greg Monroe rips team after blowout loss

    Mar 11, 2013, 10:09 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Greg Monroe

    LOS ANGELES — There was a lot of frustration in the Pistons locker room after the Los Angeles Clippers ran them out of the building on Sunday night (a 129-97 Los Angeles win). They aren’t the first team to be fodder for a Lob City highlight show, but in a good sign for the long…

  18. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Miami wants to know if you have any other challengers

    Miami Heat's guard Dwyane Wade goes to the basket past Indiana Pacers guard George Hill during their NBA game in Miami

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering where you’re going to get your next lion meat burger if not Chicago…. Lakers 90, Bulls 81: The Lakers offense has been better of late and the Bulls offense continues to be unimpressive. At best. Those things combine to give the…

  19. Three Stars of the Night: DeAndre’s dunk above all else

    Mar 11, 2013, 3:13 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There are great all-around performances, and then there are singular plays which rise above all else to define a day of NBA basketball. DeAndre Jordan‘s dunk over Brandon Knight falls into the latter category, and (spoiler alert) it earns him our top spot in the nightly rankings. Third Star: Dwight Howard (16 points, 21 rebounds,…

  20. Clippers try to jump-start defense for playoff run. Hapless Pistons help out.

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:06 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Brandon Knight

    LOS ANGELES — Since the start of the season there have been two questions that seem to define just how far the Clippers can go: 1) How good is DeAndre Jordan playing at the five? 2) How good is the Clippers defense? The answer to both of those questions of late was “not good.” Which…

  21. DeAndre Jordan flat out destroys Brandon Knight (VIDEO)

    Mar 10, 2013, 10:55 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan would like you to witness his entrant in the Dunk of the Year contest. It’s a good one. First off, that is a fantastic alley-oop pass from Chris Paul, he anticipated this really well. Brandon Knight did not, and so he ends up the unwitting guy just getting destroyed. I was at the…

  22. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Celtics 11-0 run closes out Pacers

    Mar 7, 2013, 9:52 AM EDT

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what live is like for a poor sultan…. Lakers 108, Hornets 102: The Lakers were down 25 in the third quarter, 18 entering the fourth. But then Kobe Bryant took over the offense and Dwight Howard the defense, the Hornets fell…

  24. NBA Power Rankings: It’s Miami then everyone else

    Mar 4, 2013, 3:34 PM EDT

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Not much change at the top of the rankings this week, the Heat can’t seem to lose (the only real shift was the Clippers jumping the Pacers after beating them). The interesting question going forward is how far will the Spurs tumble without Tony Parker for a month. And if they tumble here, do they…

  25. Metta World Peace says his style of play is aggressive, but not dirty

    Mar 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    It can be extremely frustrating to watching Metta World Peace continually make violent plays that are meant to instigate or agitate his opponents, and then hear him try to explain away his actions afterward. It’s not that World peace is lying or being disingenuous. He truly believes that plays he’s been penalized for — such…
