    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    John Wall already had one technical against the Warriors Saturday night, he had argued a physical screen set by David Lee in the first quarter should have been a foul. But the game was going to get more physical, more chippy in the second half. In the middle of the third quarter Wall was going for…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while reading the oral history of Ace of Bass’ one hit…. Heat 98, Cavaliers 95: Crazy game.

  4. Three Stars of the night: Once again, LeBron tops Green

    Mar 19, 2013, 1:56 AM EST

    Heat forward James reacts after making a basket during their NBA basketball game against the Celtics in Boston

    On a night with some big games and big lines — Stephen Curry had 30 points and just misses out — two of our three stars come from one game. One of the best, most entertaining games of the season. We couldn’t leave either of these guys off. Third Star: Wilson Chandler (35 points, 9…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Western teams jockey for position behind Heat.

    Mar 18, 2013, 3:26 PM EST

    Kings Heat Basketball

    It’s Miami and then everyone else right now — but notice the next six teams in our weekly power rankings are from the West. That’s because the play of the second tier teams in the East has fallen off (Indiana, New York, Brooklyn) 1. Heat (51-14, last week ranked No. 1). What kind of concerns…

  8. Three Stars of the night: Durant, Ellis show how to close out games

    Mar 18, 2013, 2:24 AM EST

    Monta Ellis

    While you were hopping from Irish pub to Irish pub Sunday, the NBA was putting a pretty solid slate of eight games. We had some surprise good performances and some from the usual suspects. Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook, we’re sorry. On Selection Sunday you were the bubble guys who got cut from Three Stars.…

  9. Did Warriors, Wizards turn down James Harden deals?

    Mar 15, 2013, 6:10 PM EST

    James Harden

    Whether you choose to believe this or not really comes down to how much you believe in ESPN’s Bill Simmons. But NBA trades do not work where a potential available player is only discussed with one team. If a GM is shopping — or even just testing the market — for a specific player then…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were watching the papal seagull….. Heat 98, 76ers 94: There was a time this season when the Heat were coasting and this was the kind of game where they just didn’t bring any heart. But now they have something to play…

    Mar 14, 2013, 2:50 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers center Hibbert puts up a shot against Minnesota Timberwolves forward Williams during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Every team entering the playoffs needs their star to step up, but these three guys have a little extra weight on their shoulders. Without big performances these guys’ teams sink fast in the postseason (or in Kobe’s case, don’t even make the playoffs). Honorable mention tonight to Thaddeus Young who put up 24 points and…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Knicks take night off (except they had a game)

    Mar 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

    Mar 12, 2013, 1:31 AM EST

    New York Knicks' Smith walks off the floor after missing a shot in their NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in New York

    On the scale of Flagrant II fouls, J.R. Smith‘s on Harrison Barnes Monday was not as bad as many. But Joey Crawford and the referee corp saw the replay above and decided the foul was “unnecessary and excessive” — the threshold that has to be met for the Flagrant II and automatic ejection. As Mike…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: After the Heat it gets interesting

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:36 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week. Those games don’t foreshadow playoff outcomes as much as hint at seedings — if Denver can get home court in the first round whoever has to face them is in trouble.…

  15. David Lee misses Warriors’ loss to Bucks due to knee injury, says he’ll be ready to go Monday vs. Knicks

    Mar 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    David Lee, Zach Randolph

    David Lee sat out the Warriors’ 103-93 home loss to the Bucks on Saturday with a bruised right knee, but he doesn’t expect to be sidelined much longer. Lee was experiencing swelling in the knee, after banging it against the knee of Thomas Robinson midway through the first quarter of Golden State’s loss to Houston…

    Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Washington Wizards in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Deron Williams put himself in the NBA record book on Friday, and he did so before the first half of the game between the Nets and the Wizards was anywhere close to being finished.

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Stephen Curry has range. CSNBayarea.com caught him taking and making a shot from the players hallway in Oracle Arena before Wednesday night’s game. And caught the celebration afterwards. Unlike when the game was on the line later that night, Curry was not double teamed for this shot.

  19. Klay Thompson nails game winning three for Warriors (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2013, 8:43 AM EST

    Klay Thompson

    Klay Thompson gets the glory because he hit the dagger shot, but Stephen Curry and David Lee made this possible. Off the inbounds, the play has Curry come off a high Lee/Andrew Bogut double screen. Lee’s man goes to trap Curry and that’s where Lee makes the smart move and pops out rather than rolls…

  20. Three Stars of the Night: Guys that got (or almost got) their team wins

    Mar 7, 2013, 2:11 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Lots of close games, lots of crazy buzzer beaters on Wednesday night. But it wasn’t just the Jeff Greens and Klay Thompsons that got their team wins, it was others like the three guys below. Except for the Third Star, he tried but got undone by some guy named LeBron. Third Star: Nikola Vucevic (25…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while listening to a Trent Reznor/Carly Ray Jepson mash up… Knicks 102, Cavaliers 97: The Knicks had to really work for this win — they trailed by 22 in the second quarter and lost Carmelo Anthony for the game around the same time…

    Mar 2, 2013, 11:52 PM EST

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    The Warriors rode a five-game losing streak into the All-Star break, but as a team, were trying to keep things positive. The streak reached six, before Golden State briefly righted the ship and rattled off three straight wins, but as the schedule toughened, the losses have begun to pile up once again. A 16-point second…

    Lebrion James, Dwyane Wade

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I discuss the amazing 54-point performance put in by Stephen Curry during a loss to the Knicks earlier this week. We look at the Warriors playoff prospects, before looking back at last night’s games, the best of which didn’t make TNT’s nationally televised schedule. Chris Paul…

  24. Klay Thompson’s dad will cut his allowance after league fine. I’m not kidding.

    Mar 1, 2013, 12:59 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors' Thompson moves with the basketball while Indiana Pacers' George defends him during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Klay Thompson is 23, a part of the young core of the Golden State Warriors, a guy who already is considered one of the league’s better shooters. He’s still on his rookie deal, so he’s “only” going to make $2.2 million this season, and not much more next season. He’s going to make a little…

  25. PBT Extra: Is Curry the guy you’d build around out of his draft class?

    Feb 28, 2013, 7:26 PM EST

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Stephen Curry had a monster night in the bright lights of Madison Square Garden, which on this edition of PBT Extra led Kay Adams to ask me a good question: If you could build a team around anyone from the last four drafts, would Stephen Curry lead your list? (Hint, he wouldn’t even lead his…
