    Feb 18, 2013, 12:21 PM EDT

    David Lee, Zach Randolph

    HOUSTON — For the Golden State Warriors, the All-Star break couldn’t have come at a better time. And at least two of the team’s key players are confident the team will get back on track once the regular season resumes on Tuesday. The Warriors entered the break on a five-game losing streak, a rough end…

  2. Report: Monta Ellis expected to turn down $11 million option, become free agent

    Feb 18, 2013, 9:39 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    The Milwaukee Bucks could look like a very different team next season. We’ve already told you how Brandon Jennings — frustrated he wasn’t picked to be in Houston this weekend for the All-Star Game — is a restricted free agent next summer and has a new agent known for getting his clients to big cities.…

    HOUSTON — Enough with the preliminaries — especially the pregame Ke$ha concert — let’s get on with the real show. Time for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. We’ve got this show covered for you.

  4. Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter calls himself “pimp daddy” and wishes all his sweeties a Happy Valentine’s Day. Alright then.

    Feb 14, 2013, 6:55 PM EDT

    Enes Kanter cheerleaders

    Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter is kind of an eccentric dude, but because he plays in Salt Lake City, we don’t hear a whole lot about it. This guy is like the Broadway Joe of Utah with the stuff he’s doing this year. He’s taking media day pictures with four cheerleaders draped on him, and…

  5. Stephen Curry practices for Three Point Contest, he’s not going to be easy to beat (VIDEO)

    Feb 13, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry takes just shy of seven three pointers a game and hits 44.7 percent of them. He shoots 54.7 percent on corner threes (but he’s better from the right than the left recently) and shooting 43.5 percent from above the break. Here he is practicing for the All-Star Saturday night Three Point Contest. With…

  7. James Harden tweaks ankle Tuesday, out Wednesday

    Feb 13, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    James Harden

    James Harden said he wants to play Wednesday night, because when doesn’t a real competitor want to play? But with him already playing through a bruised left knee then tweaking his ankle in the third quarter on Tuesday night, Harden is not going to suit up for the Rockets against the Clippers on Wednesday, tweets…

  9. Warriors have ‘no panic’ after 25-point loss in Dallas, their fourth straight

    Feb 10, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    The Warriors have been a nice surprise this season, playing better than most expected while winning enough games early to be in solid playoff position for essentially the entire year. Things have changed recently, with the team suffering its fourth straight loss on Saturday at the hands of the Mavericks, and not really competing very…

  12. The Houston Rockets tie the NBA record for most 3-pointers, blow past Golden State

    Feb 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    James Harden

    We thought Rockets-Warriors might be a shootout, but this was more like the grand finale of a fireworks show for a full 48 minutes. Behind a record trying 3-point performance, the Rockets issued a 140-109 beatdown of the Golden State Warriors in Houston. Let’s allow the numbers to tell the story: 77 We probably should…

  13. Nate Robinson, David Lee named NBA players of the week

    Chicago Bulls Nate Robinson passes around Brooklyn Nets Reggie Evans and Brook Lopez in NBA game in New York

    When Nate Robinson is on and hitting, he is one of the most entertaining players in the NBA — and last week he was hitting. A lot. Robinson was named the Eastern Conference NBA Player of the week for last week. Golden State’s David Lee was the winner for the Western Conference. The Bulls went…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  15. Mavs’ Carlisle, Cuban frustrated with officials (and likely will get fined)

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Rick Carlisle

    Tuesday night the Mavericks lost a close game in Portland and the next day the NBA league office admitted that the officials blew a charge/block call that went against Dallas and O.J. Mayo at the end of a tight game. Portland got the win, but Dallas got the apology from the league. That should make…

  16. Dirk Nowitzki out again Friday night for Mavericks

    Feb 1, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki reacts to a play during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Dirk Nowitzki was a surprise scratch from the Mavericks Thursday night game, an eventual close loss to Golden State (who was without Stephen Curry). But it should come as no surprise that he is not playing in the second game of the back-to-back and is will sit out Dallas’ game against Phoenix, as reported in…

  17. Warriors hang on to beat Mavericks in battle of shorthanded teams

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    The second half of the TNT doubleheader on Thursday lost some of its luster before the game even started, with both Stephen Curry of the Warriors and Dirk Nowitzki of the Mavericks being ruled out due to injury. But the game turned out to be exciting nonetheless, as others stepped up on both sides to…

    Vince Carter taught Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes a bit of a lesson as the first half came to an end at Oracle Arena on Thursday, and we’re all a little better off because of it. With the Mavericks playing for the last shot of the half as point guard Darren Collison dribbled down the clock…

  19. Dirk Nowitzki out for Dallas Thursday night with hip injury

    Jan 31, 2013, 9:57 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The NBA’s second showcase game on Thursday night is losing a lot of its star power. First, Stephen Curry is out for Golden State with a sprained ankle. Now comes the news Dirk Nowitzki will be out with a right adductor injury, tweets Earl Sneed of Mavs.com. This is the muscle you think of as…

  20. UPDATE: Stephen Curry out Thursday night vs. Mavericks

    Jan 31, 2013, 9:36 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    UPDATE 9:36 pm: As expected, coach Mark Jackson made it official, Stephen Curry will not play Thursday night against Dallas. As we detailed earlier today, this was to be expected. The Warriors are going to be cautious with Curry as this is the second sprain of his surgically repaired ankle in a month. He has…

    Jan 30, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Friday night of All-Star weekend is when the NBA likes to show off it’s future All-Stars. Or, at least the guys who seem like they are going to stick around the league for a while. It’s the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge — what the rest of us still call the rookie/sophomore game. Although for the…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while spending way too much time on the Stacy King soundboard…. Lakers 111, Hornets 106: The renaissance of the Lakers offense continues — Kobe Bryant had 11 assists, Dwight Howard rolled to the rim for 24 and the Lakers played beautiful basketball. But…

  24. Three Stars of the Night: Turn It Around

    Jan 30, 2013, 1:52 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    How about those road Warriors? They didn’t have Stephen Curry, Andrew Bogut, Carl Landry, or Harrison Barnes…and they still shot 53 percent in a 108-95 victory in Cleveland. A lot of that credit goes to Klay Thompson, who just missed the cut despite dropping a career-high 32 points. That’s how good our Three Stars were tonight, so let’s…

  25. Klay Thompson goes off for career-high 32 points (VIDEO)

    Jan 29, 2013, 11:19 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson, Kyrie Irving

    Klay Thompson has as pretty a shot as you are going to find — quick release, smooth, deadly. With Stephen Curry, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut all out for Golden State Tuesday, Thompson needed to crank it up — and he did. To the tune of a career-high 32 points and Golden State got a…
