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

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics bench gets them a win

    Nov 15, 2012, 6:34 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thinking at least one drug dealer really cares…. Grizzlies 107, Thunder 97: We told you last week in the power rankings Memphis was for real. Believe us now? Brett Pollakoff broke down this game for us. Clippers 107, Heat 100:…

  5. Three Stars: Career highs for three guys

    Nov 14, 2012, 12:52 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    The soulless pursuit of stats by players on bad teams (or as I like to call it, the Corey Maggette special) can often be pretty brutal to watch. No one likes watching a guy play isolation basketball the whole game, hogging possessions and looking off teammates. Three Stars doesn’t reward that type of behavior, but…

  6. Video: Russell Westbrook passes to self off Brandon Knight

    Nov 13, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    I think this is my favorite play from last night. Tie game, inside five minutes in the fourth quarter and Russell Westbrook does a very Westbrook thing and gets caught in the air with nowhere to go with the ball. So he improvised, threw it off Brandon Knight, got it back and scored the layup.…

  7. Video: Jason Maxiell sends Russell Westbrook’s layup to the moon

    Nov 13, 2012, 12:52 AM EDT

    Maxiell_Jason

    The Pistons blew a double-digit lead at home to the Thunder, remaining winless at 0-8 on the season. Things obviously aren’t going great in Detroit, but at the very least, they were aesthetically pleasing tonight for the first time in a long time. Jason Maxiell was a big part of that. Although he is crazy…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  9. Thomas Robinson says all the right things after receiving two-game suspension

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Thomas Robinson

    The elbow from Kings’ rookie Thomas Robinson on Wednesday — you remember, the one that connected with the throat of Jonas Jerebko and earned Robinson a well-deserved two-game suspension — was brutal and unnecessary, and has no place at all in a basketball game played at the professional level. Thankfully, after receiving his punishment for…

  10. Kings’ Robinson suspended two games for elbow to neck of Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Kim English, Jonas Jerebko

    We told you Wednesday night when it happened a suspension was very possible for Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, and the league has come down pretty hard on the rookie. Robinson has been suspended two games (without pay) for throwing an elbow to the neck of Jonas Jerebko of the Detroit Pistons, the league announced Thursday. Robinson was…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:34 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  12. Kings’ Robinson ejected after nasty elbow to Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 1:25 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Indiana Pacers

    Thomas Robinson, you’re a rookie so let me help you out here — the check for that fine that is coming can be made out just to the NBA. And there is certainly at least a fine coming — and likely a suspension — for Robinson following his uncalled for and nasty elbow to the…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Denver gets first win, Orlando first loss

    Nov 7, 2012, 7:48 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Danilo Gallinari

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were watching the election results roll in…. Nuggets 109, Pistons 97: Denver got its first win in its home opener with a balanced attack — Andre Iguodala had 17 points (9 in the fourth quarter and…

  14. What’s up with Rodney Stuckey? Ear infection Maggette says.

    Nov 6, 2012, 3:43 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    We at PBT asked the question yesterday — what is going on with Rodney Stuckey? The attacking Pistons guard is 1-of-23 shooting this season, is not attacking the rim like he used to, not hunting out contact in the lane, not knocking down his shots and is being marginalized in the Pistons offense. It’s pretty…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  16. What is wrong with Rodney Stuckey’s game?

    Nov 5, 2012, 2:23 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey, Anthony Morrow

    At this stage of the season, all analysis of teams and players should be framed by the small sample size caveat. Whether a player is is shooting the lights out or stinking up the joint, allowing performance to regress (or progress) to the mean is going to be the best approach. It’s too long a…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers keep it simple and win. Finally.

    Nov 5, 2012, 2:55 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Jason Maxiell

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while thinking that a 14-year-old is a whole lot better at golf than you…. Lakers 108, Pistons 79: The Lakers had a 23-5 run in the second half of the first quarter, and that was pretty much it…

  18. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  19. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  20. Tuesday And-1 links: Shed a tear, Spurs waive Eddy Curry

    Oct 23, 2012, 6:50 PM EDT

  21. Dwight Howard thought he should have won DPOY last year

    Oct 23, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard was the three-time defending NBA Defensive Player of the Year going into last season. But there was no four-peat. Howard had a messy off-the-court season in Orlando that he should want to forget, plus he finished the season injured. Tyson Chandler won the award for his fantastic play in the paint that turned…

  22. Corey Maggette to have precautionary MRI

    Oct 21, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    The Detroit Free Press reports that Pistons F Corey Maggette will have an MRI on his calf this week due to a strain he suffered against the Heat the other night. Maggette was on crutches after the game but walking on his own power Friday, and the MRI is considered precautionary. The Pistons either desperately…

  23. Video: Pistons have a little fun at Kyle Singler’s expense

    Oct 21, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    kyle singler

    Preseason, the time of year for harmless hazing of NBA rookies… and sometimes not so harmless. However this is about as harmless as it gets. Still the Pistons play a little prank on rookie Kyle Singler in front of the dozens of people who show up early for an NBA preseason game between Detroit and…

  25. NBA season preview: Sacramento Kings

    Oct 19, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Last Season: More of the same, for a club that has been truly terrible for the last six seasons. Paul Westphal was run out of town mid-season in favor of Keith Smart, who thus far has had much greater success relating to the team’s young players. DeMarcus Cousins showed significant improvement, and the speedy rookie…
