  1. Warriors’ Landry faces tough decision: Should he stay or should he go now?

    May 24, 2013, 8:10 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Four

    You get this sense with the Warriors — guys like playing there now. You could feel the team chemistry when you watch them play. They liked each other, they were having fun together. And that was fun to watch. Carl Landry wants to stay a part of that. But the NBA is a business. Landry…

  2. Dwight Howard reportedly adds Hawks and Warriors to his free agent list

    May 23, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    As the Dwight Howard free agency news cycle rolls on, the latest report has him expanding the list of teams he’ll consider signing with this summer. It’s been previously reported that Howard is most intrigued by the Houston Rockets, thanks in no small part to a young star already in place there in the form…

  3. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

    New York Knicks guard Kidd looks down during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Knicks GM Glen Grunwald says after his exit meeting with Jason Kidd, he…

  5. GM on Warriors turnaround: “Sense of desperation has passed”

    May 20, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Just three seasons ago, the Golden State Warriors were a 26-win team with Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette as their two leading scorers — this was a team in need of a radical overhaul. Enter new ownership willing to invest in winning, new players to go with then rookie Stephen Curry, a new coach in…

  6. Spurs have changed a lot since 2011 loss to Grizzlies

    May 19, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard, Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw, Tim Duncan

    When the Spurs started the 2010-11 season with a 17-3 record – on their way to a conference-best 61-21 finish – Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated profiled a team that no longer resembled previous San Antonio squads. Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili had played together under Gregg Popovich since the 2002-03 season, and…

  7. Spurs would like to remind you they are very good, crush Grizzlies in Game 1

    May 19, 2013, 6:35 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The San Antonio Spurs are never the “it” team. Never the sexy squad with high-flying stars casual fans gravitate toward in the postseason. The collective national will was behind Stephen Curry and Golden State last round. Then a whole lot of prognosticators — very smart, good ones — picked Memphis this round. The Grizzlies were…

  8. LeBron James, Chris Paul teach and motivate future NBA stars at a 2008 camp (VIDEO)

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    This video was recently released by the folks that run the website for LeBron James, and it gives us a glimpse into the types of motivational words and teachings that young NBA prospects received from James and Chris Paul five years ago. The highlights come from a 2008 summer camp that took place before the…

  9. Harrison Barnes’ playoff scoring surge merely step one of two

    May 17, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes, Cory Joseph

    Harrison Barnes had a solid regular season, making the All-Rookie first team as a debatable choice for that honor. He started 81 games for the playoff-bound Warriors, but Barnes took a back seat to Stephen Curry, David Lee, Klay Thompson, Jarrett Jack, Carl Landry and, when healthy, Andrew  Bogut. Again being the seventh banana on…

  10. Warriors come back on court, Curry thanks fans after loss (VIDEO)

    May 17, 2013, 8:12 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    There was a great moment in Golden State after the Spurs had eliminated the Golden State Warriors from the playoffs. As the game was winding down the fans had stayed and chanted — this is a passionate fan base long starved for much to cheer about. So the players came back out of the tunnel…

  11. Spurs ramp up defense to beat Warriors, advance to Western Conference Finals

    May 17, 2013, 2:12 AM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    The Warriors had a great run, but their magic ran out. In a hard fought, defense driven effort the Spurs defeated the Warriors 94-82 to advance to their 2nd consecutive Western Conference Finals. Golden State battled all night, trying to stave off elimination but simply didn’t have enough. Stephen Curry scored 22 points, but never found…

  12. Warriors’ Harrison Barnes face plants, eventually leaves game with headaches (VIDEO)

    May 17, 2013, 1:12 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    That hurts to watch. Golden State’s rookie Harrison Barnes was coming from the weak side to contest a Boris Diaw shot, Barnes leapt and Diaw decided to go under for the reverse. It wasn’t intentional, but the end result was Diaw undercut Barnes, took his legs out, and Barnes face planted on the hardwood. He…

  13. Preview: Warriors need better performances from Curry and Thompson to hold off elimination against Spurs

    May 16, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    A closeout game is always the hardest win to get in a series. This is especially true when battling on the road and even more so when that road environment is one of the most raucous in the league. The Spurs, then, have their hands full when they visit Oracle Arena in Oakland and try to…

  14. Tim Duncan shoves Richard Jefferson, then stares him down (VIDEO)

    May 15, 2013, 8:18 PM EDT

    tim duncan richard jefferson spurs

    In a rare show of an emotion other than being incredulous at every foul call that has ever gone against him, Tim Duncan gave Richard Jefferson a solid shove to claim the courtside traction pad at some point during Game 5, and then sat on the scorer’s table to stare him down afterward. This probably…

  15. Why do the Knicks keep playing Jason Kidd?

    May 15, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Jason Kidd

    Jason Kidd has scored exceptionally during the playoffs. There are many ways to evaluate scoring, but here’s how five players rank by one measure: Jason Kidd: 73 Carmelo Anthony: 24 Stephen Curry: 23 Kevin Durant: 21 LeBron James: 17 That’s how many points each player has scored during the 2013 playoffs, as a percentage of…

  16. Kawhi Leonard puts Harrison Barnes on a poster (VIDEO)

    May 15, 2013, 2:04 AM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    Kawhi Leonard isn’t a flashy player. In fact, the next time you see him make a fuss about anything on the floor or try to draw attention to himself will be the first time. Most of the time you see him doing the little things that make the Spurs offense work the way it needs…

  17. Tony Parker’s big game leads Spurs to game 5 victory over Warriors

    May 15, 2013, 1:03 AM EDT

    Spurs guard Parker drives on Warriors forward Barnes and guard Curry during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    One thing this series hasn’t had is a blowout. Game 5 changed that as the Spurs turned up their defensive pressure and got some key performances from some role players to rout the Warriors 109-91 and get within a game of advancing to the conference finals for the 2nd straight season. The star of the…

  18. Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis headline NBA All-Rookie Team

    May 14, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…

  19. Stephen Curry suffered no setbacks with injured ankle, says he’s ‘ready to go’ for Game 5

    May 14, 2013, 2:24 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    The left ankle injury that Stephen Curry suffered late in Game 3 was a legitimate cause for concern for the Warriors. Despite Curry’s cold shooting in the last game and a half before it occurred, few believed that Golden State would be able to beat the Spurs without him. Curry played in the Warriors’ overtime…

  20. Preview: Spurs look to put Warriors on the edge of elimination in crucial Game 5

    May 14, 2013, 2:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Four

    How important is this game 5 to both teams? Historically, in the NBA, the team that goes up 3-2 wins the series 85.7% of the time. And while that’s not necessarily a doom’s day scenario for the loser, it’s pretty close. For the Warriors, it may be even more important as it’s hard to see…

  21. Report: Jerry Sloan meets with Bucks to discuss coaching job

    May 13, 2013, 4:34 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    How do you think Brandon Jennings and Jerry Sloan would get along? It could happen. Sloan, the long time coach of the Jazz who retired a couple years ago mid-season, met with Bucks management to discuss the job, reports Sam Amick at USA Today. According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the former…

  22. Kevin Durant: ‘I can do a lot more’

    May 13, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant falls to the floor against Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen in the final moments in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Anyway you slice it, Kevin Durant is doing a lot for the Thunder. Traditional stats say Durant is averaging 34.0 points, 10.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals in 44.3 minutes per game since Russell Westbrook’s injury. Advanced stats say Durant has 2.2 win shares for a team that has won five playoff games, which means…

  23. Warriors’ David Lee admits he likely need surgery after season

    May 13, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    David Lee, Stephen Curry

    Sunday David Lee tried to give it a go again — he played nearly eight minutes off the bench, went 0-2 shooting, was -12, but he did have five rebounds. Still, he’s not the same player following the hip flexor injury that was supposed to keep him out for the playoffs. Lee knows it. He’s…

  24. Danny Green’s high-flying putback against Warriors (VIDEO)

    May 13, 2013, 1:37 AM EDT

    Danny Green, Stephen Curry, Harrison Barnes

    The San Antonio Spurs might have had the best highlights out of Sunday. For one, Manu Ginobili just broke Harrison Barnes‘ ankles on a potential game winner with :20 seconds left in the fourth quarter, only to miss the shot. Then there was this impressive putback dunk by Danny Green. That guy’s an athlete. Not…

  25. Luol Deng officially day-to-day, but seems doubtful for remainder of the series vs. Heat

    May 13, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Luol Deng

    Luol Deng has been dealing with complications from a spinal tap he underwent late in the Bulls first round series against the Nets. Now that we’re approaching Game 4 of his team’s series against the Heat, things don’t seem to be improving quickly enough that a return to the court would seem likely anytime soon.…
