  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston’s defense has serious issues

    Dec 31, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while in a massive food fight including flour and eggs…. Clippers 107, Jazz 96: The Clippers win streak is at 17 and if you are having an early season MVP discussion and not including Chris Paul in the mix, you…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: The Butler did it

    Dec 31, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Caron Butler

    Four games, three stars on a Sunday night. As always there are some honorable mention guys left out — Tony Parker with his 21, Monta Ellis with 30 points and 9 assists, and Al Jefferson with 30 against the Clippers front line almost made the cut. But instead, it’s an all-perimeter guys three stars tonight.…

  3. The Heat go cold at the wrong time, lose big to the Bucks

    Dec 30, 2012, 12:44 AM EDT

    Bucks guard Jennings drives to the basket against Heat center Harrellson in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee

    Dwyane Wade returned, but Miami’s road woes traveled right along with him to Milwaukee. After losing to Detroit and the Will Bynum show last night, Miami collapsed in the fourth quarter tonight, falling to the Bucks, 104-85. Believe it or not, Miami appeared to be in firm control with a little over two minutes left…

  4. Report: Maloofs reluctant to trade Cousins; Celtics among teams interested

    Dec 29, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Ever since the Kings organization suspended DeMarcus Cousins — for fighting with Keith Smart, the coach hired because it was thought he had a good relationship with the young big man — other teams have started poking around to see if the Kings are willing to trade Cousins. Among the teams very interested are the…

  5. Will Bynum is an unstoppable force (for a night), leads Pistons over Heat

    Dec 29, 2012, 12:18 AM EDT

    Will Bynum

    Will Bynum is an unstoppable force of nature. Okay, that’s not true. But he is a guy capable on a given night of just lighting it up and taking over an NBA game. Like when he dropped 35 on the Hawks a couple of nights ago. He can do it against anyone — including the…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: James Harden leads dramatic Boxing Day finishes

    Dec 27, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, James Harden

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of all the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while wondering exactly what you’re going to do with the Salt-N-Pepa salt and pepper shakers you got for Christmas…. Rockets 87, Timberwolves 84: James Harden is making quite the All-Star case, and making the Rockets look more and more…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Clippers in top spot, which is close to Mayans being right

    Dec 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s not the end of the world in a classic way, or even in a “Michael Stipe feels fine” kind of way, but the Clippers being on top of the PBT power rankings are as close to the end of the world as we are getting this week. 1. Clippers (21-6, LW 2). Winners of…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: That Kevin Durant guy is pretty good

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while being more than willing to do your part to fight breast cancer…. Knicks 100, Nets 86: Battle of New York? Not really. The Knick are an elite team that got Carmelo Anthony back and he dropped 31 (that makes it…

  9. Report: Pistons shopping seldom-used Austin Daye

    Dec 19, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Daye_dunk

    There was a time when Austin Daye was thought part of the future being build from the ground up in Detroit. They have Greg Monroe. They have Andre Drummond. Another young forward makes that something to build around. But it sounds like the Pistons are throwing in the towel on Daye. You can say that…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Right now, Clippers are second best in West

    Dec 17, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul run off the bench to celebrate a basket against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What we see in December is not always a great predictor of what we see in the playoffs, but the Clippers look very good lately. Better than their more talked about roommate in Los Angeles. 1. Thunder (19-4, Last week ranked No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row. I still think…

  11. Joe Johnson hits game-winner in double overtime to bury the Pistons (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2012, 11:41 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson hits winning shot over Detroit Pistons Tayshaun Prince in NBA game in New York

    They don’t call him Iso Joe for nothing, kids. With the Nets really struggling to create offense once things got tight, Joe Johnson came to the rescue with multiple big buckets before hitting the really big one to finally put away a game Detroit Pistons team, 107-105 in double overtime. There were a lot of takeaways…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Carmelo has Knicks on top in New York

    Dec 12, 2012, 3:24 AM EDT

    J.R. Smith, Jason Kidd, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Bill Kennedy

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while you were wondering who thought an Angry Birds movie was a good idea… Cavaliers 100, Lakers 94: It’s not just one thing with the Lakers – their offense was off, their defensive rotations are sloppy, their big men missed shots,…

  13. Quietly Charlie Villanueva has become solid part of Pistons

    Dec 11, 2012, 1:26 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva, Stephen Curry

    For the first month of the season, Charlie Villanueva might as well have been a ghost. You saw only fleeting glimpses of him in a Pistons uniform, seemingly out of the corner of your eye. Up to Nov. 23, Villanueva had only set foot on the court three times, for a total of 20 minutes.…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Heat put together a complete game. That will beat anyone.

    Dec 11, 2012, 3:42 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James and Wade smile during second half of NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Miami

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the video of the worst free throw attempt ever… Spurs 134, Rockets 126 (OT): There was a Linsanity flashback in Houston. Jeremy Lin took charge in the third quarter, slashed into the defense, hit rainbow jumpers and looked like…

    Dec 7, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    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. • The good news is the Hornets’ Anthony Davis is on the court and…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Robin Lopez, Luke Babbitt key wins. It was that kind of night.

    Dec 4, 2012, 3:42 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Robin Lopez

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while trying to decide if you love or hate the new Air Jordan XX8…. Clippers 105, Jazz 104: Blake Griffin has his biggest scoring game of the year and the Clippers hand the Jazz their first home loss of the year.…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Jazz, Bucks make it night of the comebacks

    Nov 27, 2012, 7:34 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala is ejected during their NBA basketball game against Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while thinking there are some really screwed up people in Germany…. Nets 96, Knicks 89 (OT): It certainly wasn’t the best-played, prettiest game of the young season, but it was the most intense. The one with the most playoff feel, both…

  18. Video: Pistons’ Kyle Singler hits trick shots all over Detroit

    Nov 26, 2012, 3:52 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Kyle Singler is really good at trick shots. He did it at Duke all around the campus. So now the Pistons took him out and had him take shots all around Detroit — getting buckets. My favorites are the field goal at Ford Field and… okay, that moving car shot may be the best trick shot…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Memphis hangs on but Spurs, Heat charging

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless, Mike Conley

    If you ask me who was the best team in the NBA was last week, well, it was Denver. But they are fully capable of a winless week now, so we leave Memphis in the top spot this week. And Washington is still trying to find a win and a way out of the cellar…

  20. Luol Deng says Joakim Noah is best center in East

    Nov 26, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    Who is the best center in the Eastern Conference right now? It’s moot now, but if this was the old NBA All-Star ballot and you had to vote for a center, who would it be. We can rule out Andrew Bynum indefinitely. How about Al Horford in Atlanta, not a classic center but has played…

  21. Players questioning Lawrence Frank’s rotations in Detroit

    Nov 23, 2012, 3:24 AM EDT

    350x-5

    Nobody really expected the Detroit Pistons to be all that good this year — this is a rebuilding team trying to grow and see what they really have with players like Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight, Kyle Singler, Andre Drummond and more. But they haven’t lived up to even those low expectations — they are bottom…

  22. Kobe (and others) impressed with Grinnell’s Jack Taylor’s 138-point game

    Nov 21, 2012, 10:12 AM EDT

    mbb-8046-taylor

    It is what the entire basketball world is buzzing about — Jack Taylor at little Grinnell University dropped 138 points in a game. He was 52-of-108 from the field and 27-of-71 from three. And if you haven’t heard from him yet, Rob Dauster at CollegeBasketballTalk spoke with him Tuesday night. Kobe Bryant had a good…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston falls and fails in Detroit

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while watching the Andrew Bynum bowling gif over and over. Lakers 119, Rockets 108: Two straight games with big point totals for the Lakers — 114 last game, 119 this one — and two wins. And that’s with Mike D’Antoni not even…

  24. Video: Pistons dunk all over Orlando Magic (and still lose)

    Nov 17, 2012, 8:15 AM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Greg Monroe

    It’s the NBA, it’s all about the wins. That’s what matters. So for the record Orlando ended the game on a 5-0 run to win 110-106. But the Pistons still dunked all over them. Above you’ve got my favorite from Tayshaun Prince, plus a quality throw down from Jason Maxiell. Then below you can see some…

  25. Raptors GM Colangelo talks about not drafting Andre Drummond

    Nov 16, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    How much does raw talent versus personality and concerns about work ethic when drafting someone? We all are great at looking back at a draft three or five years later and saying “how did we pass on player X” when at the time it’s not that simple. To use an easy example, any GM that…
