Golden State Warriors

    Dec 26, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala reacts after scoring over the Golden State Warriors in the final seconds of the second quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    In case you missed it — and if you didn’t stay up to watch the Clippers at Warriors late game on Christmas Day then you really missed out — let me try to give you a little context. Golden State’s Draymond Green got ejected after he got his elbow up above the shoulder and caught…

  2. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES – The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  3. Blake Griffin ejected after dust up with Andrew Bogut (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    That is not worthy of an ejection. But this little dust up is what got Blake Griffin tossed, this gave him his second technical in the game and that is an automatic ejection. The first technical came when Draymond Green got an elbow up above Griffin’s shoulders and he reacted to the blow. Not sure…

  4. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  5. Warriors beat Clippers… do we have a rivalry brewing?

    Dec 26, 2013, 2:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There isn’t a full-blown rivalry between the Clippers and Warriors. Yet. NBA rivalries are forged in the playoffs and these two up-and-coming teams in the West have yet to meet on that stage. But can they please? Can we get a Clippers/Warriors playoff matchup this season? I don’t think that’s too much to ask. The…

  6. PBT Extra: Previewing Clippers at Warriors, the best game of Christmas Day

    Dec 24, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    The NBA has saved the best for last — the Los Angeles Clippers vs. the Golden State Warriors. Stephen Curry vs. Chris Paul. In this PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talk about how the Warriors could use this kind of big stage to break out of their recent doldrums, while on the other side…

  7. How the NBA came to own Christmas Day

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Chicago Bulls

    How big is Christmas Day to the NBA? Look at it this way: Last year’s Christmas Day game between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder drew more viewers (9.6 million people) than all but one playoff game prior to the NBA Finals (that was Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Miami and…

  8. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

  9. 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…

  10. Report: NBA considering doing away with draft lottery, going to 30-year set “wheel” cycle

    Grant Gilbert

    It’s going to be the first big issue that falls in the lap of new commissioner Adam Silver — tanking. By the time the All-Star Game rolls around and we move close to the trade deadline a lot of teams are going to eye the deep draft of talent coming up, wonder why they should…

  11. Patrick Beverley fractures hand, out up to six weeks

    Dec 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Patrick Beverley

    Patrick Beverley, relative to an average starting point guard, is not crucial to his team. He can run a decent offense, but James Harden handles the ball more for the Rockets. He can hawk the ball on defense, but Dwight Howard drive Houston on that end. So, this news isn’t the end of the world,…

  12. Warriors’ Marreese Speights ejected for grabbing Nick Young around the neck (VIDEO)

    speights

    Early in the fourth quarter of the Lakers loss at Golden State on Saturday, Nick Young got into the lane for what was going to be an uncontested layup or dunk. Marreese Speights didn’t want to give up the easy two points, however, and grabbed Young from behind around the neck to take him down.…

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Nets Bulls Basketball

    In the early days of mixed martial arts, there were quite a few athletes who would refuse to submit in the ring. Their arm could be on the verge of snapping, but it didn’t matter – they wouldn’t give up. They would rather break their arm. I remember holding these athletes in such high regard,…

  14. Thursday night NBA grades: Kevin Durant is good at basketball

    Dec 20, 2013, 4:47 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching my Long Beach State 49ers beat USC (at least that’s what I did with part of my night)… Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. He led his team to an easy win and how about this for a line: 32 points on 13-of-20 shooting,…

  15. No stars, no problem: Spurs reserves too much for Warriors in 104-102 win

    Dec 20, 2013, 2:55 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Warriors, Spurs

    When the Spurs rest Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili they still are pretty darn good. Ask the Heat — last year Gregg Popovich and the Spurs were fined $250,000 by the league for late notice resting the big three for a Thursday night showcase game in Miami. What people forget is the Spurs…

  16. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  18. Jordan Farmar out at least another week for Lakers

    Dec 18, 2013, 6:47 PM EDT

    jordan farmar

    The Lakers are playing without any healthy point guards at the moment, which is making things difficult on the team overall, but especially on Kobe Bryant. Bryant leads the league in turnovers with 5.7 per contest, and while he’s only played six games, it’s substantially more than Stephen Curry‘s 4.2 per game for the season.…

  19. PBT Podcast: Damian Lillard can’t miss, plus Iguodala return

    Dec 18, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    After two straight game winners, it’s time for any team facing the Blazers in a late game situation to force the ball out of Damian Lillard‘s hands. He has that clutch gene. In the latest edition of the PBT Podcast myself and Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss the Blazers fast start and how much…

    Dec 18, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs head coach Popovich talks to Duncan during the third quarter of play against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s San Antonio’s “Hammer” set. The San Antonio Spurs don’t get enough credit for keeping up with the times. Although the end result is often the same as it has always been – Tim Duncan facing up and banking a…

  21. Tuesday night NBA grades: Damian Lillard is clutch

    Dec 18, 2013, 2:49 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Portland trail blazers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while salivating over the idea of a “Rounders” sequel. Or wincing at the idea. (Count me with the latter group.) Damian Lillard, Portland Trail Blazers. Two clutch game winners in a row. Tuesday night he had 23 of his 36 points in the second half…

  22. Andre Iguodala could return to Warriors Tuesday night

    Dec 17, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Golden State is just one more loss away from being a .500 team — for all the sexy play of their sharpshooters they are not playing good defense anymore not winning games (6-9 in last 15, with the 17th ranked defense in the league). Who they miss is Andre Iguodala — and they could get…

  23. Google’s most searched NBA player in 2013? LeBron. Top trending team? Do you have to ask?

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Google search records are not the best way to test the popularity of something, but it is a pretty democratic way. Bottom line is you find out who people want to find out more about. As a fun little NBA treat, Google released Tuesday their most searched NBA players… and if you have to guess…

  24. Mark Jackson frustrated with Warriors’ effort

    Dec 16, 2013, 6:14 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    Golden State had some dramatic and exciting comebacks at home recently, but those have masked some bigger issues. ‘The Warriors are 4-6 in their last 10, basically playing teams even, not hitting threes at the pace they used to but mostly not playing defense as well as they did at the start of the season…

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    To answer your first question: I am fighting off a cold, that’s why I sound like that. Raspy voices are in, I hear. As for the topics… If you’re a basketball purist who thinks the All-Star Game should be filled with the players who performed the best the first half of the season… well life…
