  1. Enes Kanter attacks rim, DeAndre Jordan can’t stop him

    Mar 15, 2014, 12:46 AM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    I wouldn’t say Utah’s Enes Kanter dunks on the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan because that implied Jordan got in his way. Jordan went for the block but kind of tried to swipe it as Kanter went by. Didn’t work, big dunk for the Jazz. The Clippers went on to win the game 96-97, their 10th consecutive…

  2. The Extra Pass: Vince Carter had a front row seat for the “Miracle on Hudson” plane crash

    Jan 16, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

  3. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  4. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  5. The Extra Pass: You may not believe this, but a D’Antoni team is winning with defense, plus game recaps

    Nov 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Six games ago, a frustrated Mike D’Antoni decided to shake up the rotation of his struggling 3-5 Lakers: Chris Kaman was out of the starting lineup, Jordan Hill was in; Nick Young became a sixth man and Wesley Johnson became the starting three; and with Steve Nash out Jodie Meeks became Steve…

  6. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  7. UPDATE: Rookie Trey Burke practices, will not play for Jazz Wednesday

  8. 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…

  9. Oddsmakers say Wizards’ Wittman favorite for first coach to be fired

    Nov 14, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    It doesn’t take much to see why Washington’s Randy Wittman is the guy many see as the coach on the hottest seat. His team is 2-6 but with playoff aspirations. His star player is writing “playoffs” on his shoes every game (and shooting 37.9 percent). His team’s owner Ted Leonsis has talked playoffs a lot…

  10. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  11. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  12. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Utah Jazz

    Oct 11, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

  13. Karl Malone doesn’t bring his gun, bow to Jazz practice. So he can focus.

    Oct 10, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

    Karl Malone

    Karl Malone is back working with the Utah Jazz as a special assistant coach — Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and the rest of the young Jazz front line are now learning the tricks of the Mailman. And Malone is focused on that — at least until next month and his annual hunting trip, he told…

  14. Who are Rookie of the Year favorites? Burke, Oladipo to start

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

  15. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  16. Report: Magic to sign Ronnie Price

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    Amar'e Stoudemire, Ronnie Price

    Much like why the tanking Jazz signed John Lucas III, the tanking Magic will sign another guard with a reputation for being a good locker room presence. Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest: Ronnie Price has reached an agreement with the Orlando Magic, a league source informed CSNNW.com. Alex Kennedy of Hoops World: Ronnie Price's agreement…

  17. Report: Jazz to sign John Lucas

    Jul 15, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey talks with guard John Lucas III during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills

    If the Jazz are Riggin’ for Wiggins – and by letting two of their top players (Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson) leave in free agency and trading for hefty contracts (Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and, to a lesser degree, Brandon Rush) just to get draft picks, it sure seems like they are – they’ll still…

  18. Report: Bobcats plan to pursue Al Jefferson in free agency

    Jul 1, 2013, 1:14 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    The Bobcats have have a lot of cap space and are looking to spend it on an impact player to help bolster their offensively challenged front court. Their target will be Utah Jazz free agent Forward/Center Al Jefferson according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports. Jefferson averaged 18 points and 9 rebounds a game last…

  19. Karl Malone to help coach Utah Jazz big men

    May 29, 2013, 7:42 PM EDT

    Karl Malone

    The Utah Jazz have a couple really good young frontline players — Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter. Two guys that could form a powerhouse frontline in a few years. So why not have them learn from the best Jazz big man ever? No, not Mark Eaton, the other one. Karl Malone. Malone is apparently taking…

  21. Utah’s Enes Kanter has season-ending shoulder surgery

    Apr 10, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    Utah’s Enes Kanter has been dealing with a dislocated left shoulder. As anyone who has had a dislocated shoulder can tell you, after you dislocate it once it is more susceptible to happening again. And again. And… you get the idea. So Kanter will be out the rest of the season as he will have…

  22. Derrick Favors finding groove as Jazz push to make playoffs

    Apr 8, 2013, 10:42 PM EDT

    Derrick Favors

    Enes Kanter has been solid for the Jazz all season but he is done for this season, but a dislocated shoulder likely has him done for the season. But that has meant more minutes for Derrick Favors. You remember him, the guy the Jazz got back as the heart of the Deron Williams trade. And…

  24. Enes Kanter out ‘indefinitely’ with shoulder injury

    Mar 28, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    Enes Kanter is out “indefinitely” with a dislocated shoulder, according to Steve Luhm of The Salt Lake Tribune. Kanter suffered the injury against the Suns last night, and this is a fairly large shakeup for the Jazz, who are just a half game behind the Lakers for the No. 8 seed. Kanter, though he plays…

  25. Paul Millsap has bruised quad, patella; may sit out Monday

    Mar 11, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Jazz have lost 7-of-8 and fallen out of the playoffs in the West. So, just what they need is a key player to go out. But it looks like the Jazz will be without Paul Millsap Monday and maybe a little longer. He did not take part in shootaround Monday as the Jazz get…
