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

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    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…

  2. Warriors’ reserves embarrasses themselves, so Mark Jackson embarrasses them

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    With his team up 23 points and fewer than four minutes remaining against the Jazz on Monday, Warriors coach Mark Jackson pulled his top players in favor of Ognjen Kuzmic, Marreese Speights, Nemanja Nedovic, Kent Bazemore and Draymond Green (who was replaced by Dewayne Dedmon a few seconds later). Promptly, those five reserves ceded a…

  3. Memphis’ Tony Allen suspended one game for kick to Chris Paul’s face

    Nov 19, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    Tony Allen said as much and I believe him — I don’t think he intentionally tried to kick Chris Paul in the face. I think he got badly burned leapt to cut off a pass that wasn’t coming, realized he was beat and tried to kick the ball to stop the play or foul Paul.…

  4. UPDATE: Stephen Curry diagnosed with concussion, out Wednesday for Warriors

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    UPDATE 4:50 PM: This really isn’t a surprise if you saw the play — Stephen Curry has been diagnosed with what the team called a “mild concussion” and he will not play Wednesday. I’m not a fan of the word “mild” when it comes to brain injuries (I have concerns about how the “warrior mentality”…

  5. With O’Neal out, Warriors sign Dewayne Dedmon from D-League

    Nov 19, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational - Day 2 - USC v South Carolina

    The news was not good but it was what was expected: an MRI on Jermaine O’Neal confirmed a bruised right knee and right groin strain. The backup big man is going to miss some time. For depth, the Warriors signed Dewayne Dedmon from their D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz, reports CSNBayArea.com. Dedmon was signed for…

  6. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  7. Monday And-1 Links: Craig Sager’s best suits

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  9. Mark Jackson: Klay Thompson is a top-five shooting guard

    Nov 18, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    Warriors coach Mark Jackson has never been shy about praising his players, once calling Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson the best shooting backcourt of all time. It’s also becoming increasingly popular to claim high rankings among shooting guards. Just by chance, that’s the weakest position in the NBA right now, so marginal players at the…

  10. Stephen Curry finds Klay Thompson with a behind-the-back pass in transition (VIDEO)

    Nov 17, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Isaiah Thomas

    This was one of those highlights that appeared to be flashier than necessary on the surface, until you take a closer look at the defender’s position. Stephen Curry found Klay Thompson with a smooth behind-the-back pass in transition during the Warriors’ win over the Jazz on Saturday, and for the play to be successful, he…

  11. Jermaine O’Neal suffers sprained knee and strained groin in Warriors’ win over Jazz

    Nov 17, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    jermaine oneal warriors

    The Warriors had no trouble with the Jazz on Saturday and cruised to an easy double-digit win as expected. But the team lost backup center Jermaine O’Neal in the process. O’Neal went down early in the fourth quarter after slipping along the baseline, and had to be helped off the floor. It didn’t look good,…

    Derrick Rose Chicago Bulls

    It’s time for the latest edition of the PBT Podcast (which was supposed to go up Friday night but we ran into technical issues, so sorry for a couple dated references).

  13. 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…

  14. Globetrotter sets Guinness-approved record for world’s longest shot (VIDEO)

    Nov 15, 2013, 3:16 PM EDT

    Globetrotters

    Yes, we’ve shown trick shots before where guys have thrown the ball down hundreds of feet and set a distance record, but they are aided by gravity. What about hitting a long shot while at ground level? Well, here you go. That is Corey “Thunder” Law of the Harlem Globetrotters, making a shot from 109 feet,…

  15. The Extra Pass: Rockets foul up three and it works out…barely

    Nov 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    James Harden

    Game after game, Houston Rockets head coach Kevin McHale has had to sit back and watch teams use intentional fouls to their advantage. Against the New York Knicks on Thursday night, he turned the tables. After dealing with the “Hack-A-Howard” once again, the Rockets were lucky enough to hold on to a three-point lead with…

  16. Thursday night NBA grades: ‘Melo did all he could do. Dwight Howard… not so much

    Carmelo Anthony

    Our grades from around the NBA Thursday night, or what you missed while figuring out how to win at The Price is Right… Andrea Bargnani, New York Knicks. He’s played a few good games in a row now… I’m still not fully going to buy into him yet but if you want to make the…

  17. Andre Iguodala with the leaning game winner to beat Thunder (VIDEO)

    Nov 15, 2013, 2:01 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Warriors

    Just moments before it felt like Russell Westbrook had hit the dagger — a deep three from about 26 feet out that completed the comeback and had the Thunder up one over the Warriors with just 2.3 seconds left. Then Andre Iguodala with the jumper fading to the baseline happened. Except that’s not what Mark…

  18. NBA shows off sleeved Christmas Day uniforms in “Jingle Hoops” ad

    Nov 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    nba christmas day sleeved jerseys

    I know it’s too early for Christmas ads already (I’m one of those guys who doesn’t want to see this stuff until Thanksgiving) but this ad from Adidas showing off the “BIG Logo” Holiday Collection uniforms — which have sleeves and oversized logos on the front, pictures leaked last week — was good enough to bring…

  19. 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,…

  20. Report: Nuggets shoot down Iman Shumpert for Kenneth Faried trade

    Nov 13, 2013, 6:08 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    UPDATE 6:08 pm: The Kenneth Faried for Iman Shumpert talks are dead, at least according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, who tweeted this: Denver has made it clear to Kenneth Faried’s reps: There are no active talks involving him. Knicks offered Shumpert. Denver rejected idea. Of course, if you were trying to negotiate a…

  21. Report: Kendrick Perkins out next two games due to death in family

    Nov 13, 2013, 1:21 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins

    Oklahoma City has a couple big games the next two days — against the Clippers on Wednesday night than a nationally televised game against the Warriors Thursday — but they will play those without Kendrick Perkins. With the blessing of the team he has returned to Texas due to a death in the family, reports…

  22. Warriors’ owner says Iguodala sent word during playoffs he liked Golden State

    Nov 13, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Denver was a 57-win team last season, but one that lost a star player to injury (Danilo Gallinari) then was bounced in the first round by Golden State. Still, after that success the upheaval they underwent this summer was a surprise — gone was the GM to Toronto, the coach was fired, and their biggest…

  23. Warriors’ Toney Douglas has stress reaction in tibia, out two weeks minimum

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas

    While Golden State has looked good this season — 5-3 so far after a beat down of Detroit Tuesday — their bench has been not been the source of strength it was last season (they miss Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry so far). Now the bench just got a little weaker. Backup point guard Toney…

  24. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…

  25. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…
