  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EST

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  3. Kenyon Martin says he will play for anyone. At league minimum.

    Nov 5, 2012, 10:01 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Kenyon Martin doesn’t have an NBA team. Which seems a little strange — at age 34 last season he struggled a little with knee issues and that led to shooting struggles (he shot 44.8 percent last season, down from 51 percent the season before) and rebounding issues. His PER fell to 9.8. But his knee…

  4. David Lee tells Blake Griffin to ‘stop flopping’ (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2012, 11:00 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, David Lee

    It’s honestly a surprise that this doesn’t happen more often. Mid-way through the fourth quarter of the Warriors’ win over the Clippers on Saturday, David Lee didn’t appreciate the way Blake Griffin reacted to some contact underneath the basket. Likely dealing with this in varying degrees all night, Lee had a message for Griffin, and…

  5. Brandon Rush out for the season with torn ACL

    Nov 3, 2012, 10:00 PM EST

    Brandon Rush, Shannon Brown

    The way Brandon Rush reacted immediately following his ugly knee injury in the first quarter of the Warriors’ Friday night loss to the Grizzlies, it was easy to fear the worst. On Saturday, the team confirmed it. Rush is expected to be out for the season with a torn ACL, according to his agent Mark…

  6. Warriors Brandon Rush suffers ugly knee injury

    Nov 3, 2012, 12:16 AM EST

    Brandon Rush, Shannon Brown

    Consider this your warning: The is one of those “not for squeamish” injuries. (We’re not running video here but follow this link to see it, just giving you a heads up that you might want to wait if you’ve just eaten.) Brandon Rush suffered what appeared to be a serious left knee injury in the…

  7. Andrew Bogut will not play second night of back-to-backs

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:52 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    Andrew Bogut is back on an NBA court — he played 18 minutes for the Warriors in their season opener against Phoenix, hitting four of his six shots and adding six rebounds, generally playing pretty well. But the Warriors are going to go slow with Bogut, not rush him back. They have to think long…

  8. Winderman: Trying to make sense of rookie contract extensions

    Nov 1, 2012, 2:56 PM EST

    Daryl Morey, James Harden

    On many levels it makes sense that the NBA’s deadline for rookie-scale extensions is Oct. 31. Because while there are many treats (for the players involved), there also can be more than a few tricks (down the road when it comes to teams’ salary caps and luxury taxes). James Harden? He deserved as much as…

  9. Stephen Curry says contract talks may have affected his opening night performance

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Stephen Curry

    The Warriors earned a hard-fought victory over the Suns on Wednesday, in a game where they blew all of a 17-point first-half lead and had to come from eight points down in the final period to get out with that win. A big part of the Warriors’ trouble was the fact that the team’s biggest…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers defense sucks, too

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

  11. Warriors GM explains team’s reasoning behind Stephen Curry’s contract extension

    Oct 31, 2012, 9:48 PM EST

    Stephen Curry, Donta Smith

    As we mentioned earlier, the Warriors and Stephen Curry came to terms on a contract extension worth $44 million over four years. The deal seems like a better one for Curry than it does for the Warriors on the surface, as the team is betting all that money that Curry’s ankle problems are a thing…

  12. Stephen Curry, Warriors agree to 4-year, $44 million extension

    Oct 31, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Stephen Curry

    The Golden State Warriors aren’t going to wait to see how Stephen Curry’s ankles hold up for the season, they aren’t going to risk he has a monster year that ups his price. They decided to lock him up. Curry and the Warriors have agreed to a four-year, $44 million contract extension, a story broken…

  13. Andrew Bogut goes through full practice with Warriors for second straight day

    Oct 30, 2012, 9:00 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    As we broke down in our season preview, how this year turns out for the Warriors is perhaps more dependent on the health of the team’s stars than anything else. Now technically, that could be said about every team in the league — except with the history of injuries suffered by Stephen Curry and Andrew…

  14. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  15. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EST

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  16. Four days left and Harden, Thunder still talking extension

    Oct 27, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    James Harden

    Halloween is the deadline for rookies from the draft class of 2009 to sign extensions. And there are some real questions out there. Would you offer an extension to Stephen Curry? What about Jrue Holiday? Or Ty Lawson? The Bulls are expected to reach a deal with Taj Gibson but it hasn’t happened yet. Tyreke…

  17. Friday And-1 links: As season nears, a lot of players waived

    NBA basketball spaulding

    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. Right before the season starts is when a lot of players who were invited…

  18. Stephen Curry confirms that he will play season opener

    Oct 26, 2012, 4:11 PM EST

    Stephen Curry, Donta Smith

    It hasn’t been ideal, but it could have been worse. Stephen Curry started out the preseason going slow, then still tweaked his surgically-repaired ankle, and after that coach Mark Jackson shut him down for the rest of the preseason. That included sitting out practices this week. But come opening night, Curry will be ready to…

  19. NBA season preview: New Orleans Hornets

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:40 AM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Houston Rockets

    Last Season: The player the franchise had built itself around, Chris Paul, decided he wanted out before last season began. He did so in a far less-aggravating way than his superstar counterparts (we’re looking at you, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Howard), but he did it just the same. Since the key piece the Hornets received in…

  20. Video: New “License to Lillard” follows him through draft

    Oct 23, 2012, 1:40 PM EST

    Mo Williams, Damian Lillard

    We think of the NBA Draft as one night, but really it’s the culmination of years of work to get considered, them months and months of workouts and evaluations and the Draft Combine. It’s a lot of work. This lastest “Licensed to Lillard” video follows Damian Lillard through the process (all the way to being the…

  21. Video: In case you forgot, DeAndre Jordan knows how to finish

    Oct 23, 2012, 11:17 AM EST

    BASKET-CHN-NBA

    There are a couple of reasons to run this clip. One is the DeAndre Jordan finish which is monster. He was like this all game against the Andrew Bogut-less Warriors, a team that lacks an inside presence and Jordan took advantage. The other is that Ralph Lawler’s calls are the best. Jordan has looked good…

  22. Andrew Bogut is on schedule, but there’s still no timetable for his return

    Oct 20, 2012, 10:44 PM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    As the Warriors shut down Stephen Curry for the preseason, they have another concern on their hands. Andrew Bogut has not played. He has not scrimmaged. He has not participated in a basketball game since surgery. And while he’s spoken of making it back for the regular season opener, the Warriors have not given a…

  23. Stephen Curry wants you to punch Wes Matthews (and know his ankle is fine)

    Oct 20, 2012, 5:55 PM EST

    stephen curry

    At this point, every roll of the ankle for Stephen Curry is accompanied by concern, frustration, and that all-too-familiar queasy feeling. Curry is just too good to always be on the bench in a suit, and no matter what team you pull for, it’s hard not to feel for the guy. As it turns out,…

  24. How to win the preseason

    Oct 20, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Marvin Wiliams, Al Jefferson, Paul Milsap

    No one has ever accused the Utah Jazz of being too trendy. Just like John Stockton defiantly ignored the whole “wearing shorts that allow circulation to the rest of your leg” thing late in his career, Utah has completely avoided the recent trend of slimming down and going small. The Jazz will start four players…

  25. Curry leaves game after rolling surgically repaired ankle

    Oct 19, 2012, 11:52 PM EST

    Stephen Curry, Jerry West

    Oh, please don’t let this be serious. Golden State guard Stephen Curry left during the second quarter of Friday night’s preseason game against Portland when he rolled and sprained his surgically repaired right ankle. The ankle he has had multiple surgeries on, the one that limited him to 26 games last season. We don’t have…
