  1. George Karl thinks Iguodala was Mark Jackson’s mole, still ticked about Jackson’s playoff “tricks”

    Nov 29, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl watches his team play against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoffs in Denver

    Denver looked like a team that could do a lot of damage in the playoffs last season – they won 57 games, the players bought into the style George Karl was preaching, and they were a disruptive if not elite defense. Then Danilo Gallinari went down and they were never the same. On either end…

  2. The Extra Pass: Nets believe they’re headed in the right direction, and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:10 AM EDT

    joe johnson steve blake

    NEW YORK — The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  3. Wednesday And-1 Links: Rudy Gay has banned stat sheets from Raptors locker room

    Nov 27, 2013, 5:11 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    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 more than you love Thanksgiving leftovers…. • Rudy Gay — who is shooting 37.5…

  4. John Wall: ‘I’m the best point guard in the league’

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall has played pretty well lately. In his last three games, he’s averaging 33.0 points on 61.4 percent shooting, 6.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest. The Wizards are 2-1 in that span. It’s a fantastic three-game stretch, but let’s not get carried away. Aw, shoot, let’s get carried away. "I'm the…

  5. The Extra Pass: Gumbo and The Brow, and Tuesday night’s recap

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The New Orleans Pelicans roster was assembled with all the care of an inebriated person making gumbo. Three ball-dominant guards in addition to the ball-dominant guard we just drafted? Sure, that will work. A stretch 4 and a stretch 5? Toss ‘em in. The individual pieces in New Orleans are talented, to be certain, but…

  6. Tuesday night NBA Grades: John Wall has found his groove

    Nov 27, 2013, 2:37 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Washington Wizards

    Here’s a quick swing through the NBA for a Tuesday night, or you missed while seeing how far you could launch a pumpkin…  John Wall, Washington Wizards. No Bradley Beal so they need big games from him and they got it Tuesday in a win over a Lakers team that had been playing good defense…

  7. PBT Podcast for Nov. 26: Lots of Kobe, Rose to talk about

    Nov 26, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Bryant leaves the court against the Portland Trail Blazers after their NBA game in Portland

    Here is the the latest edition of the NBC’s ProBasketballTalk Podcast with myself  and Eyton Shander of NBC Sports Radio talking about the latest big issues in the NBA. Which means a lot of Kobe Bryant — first, when he’s going to get back on the court (think early December) plus the new contract and…

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  9. PBT Extra: What do the Bulls do now? Why the Lakers signed Kobe.

    Nov 25, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose waits for the start of a media interview at the start of the team's training camp at the Berto Arena in Chicago, Illinois

    Injuries changed the landscape of the NBA this weekend and Kay Adams and myself talk about it on the latest PBT Extra. First, with Derrick Rose out for the season in Chicago — and repairing the meniscus was the right move — big questions start to face their front office: Do you let Luol Deng…

  10. Warriors’ Andrew Bogut, Blazers Mo Williams suspended for altercation, others fined

    Nov 25, 2013, 3:18 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    It was an odd “fight” (all NBA fights have to have that word in parenthesis as a “West Side Story” dance fight generally is more intimidating). Andrew Bogot and Joel Freeland got tangled up under the basket, then in his effort to get away Bogut throws a forearm at Freeland’s head. Mo Williams jumped in…

  11. West now 44-17 vs. East so far this season

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    Remember before the season there were some pundits saying the Eastern Conference was finally catching up with the West in terms of depth of talent? Um, not so much. So far this young season, the West is 44-17 against the East (numbers updated from Jeff Caplan’s story at NBA.com). Or, look at it this way…

  12. Mark Cuban asks: Should NBA allow injured players to use HGH if it speeds recovery?

    Nov 25, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    A+E Networks Hosts the NCTA Reception - Arrivals

    Mark Cuban is a guy who wants data. He expects studies and information to help provide answers. It’s how he runs all his businesses, including the Dallas Mavericks. But when it comes to potentially using human growth hormone (HGH) — a controversial substance banned by the NBA — to help injured players recover more quickly,…

  13. Andre Iguodala avoids surgery, but can the Golden State Warriors stay healthy?

    Nov 24, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    This has been a brutal week in the NBA for injuries, but telling that to the Golden State Warriors is like preaching to the choir. The Warriors had already lost key rotation players in Toney Douglas and Jermaine O’Neal to minor injuries, and that’s in addition to being without backup centers Ogjen Kuzmi and Festus Ezeli.…

  14. Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors scrap on the court (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Well, that escalated quickly. No one threw a trident (Anchorman references are acceptable again, right?), but there were big ramifications from the on-court scuffle between the Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors. The tussle started when Andrew Bogut and Joel Freeland got tied up in the paint, and things went to another level once…

  15. Iguodala leaves game with hamstring injury, said he felt “pop”

    Nov 23, 2013, 3:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala has been a fantastic fit with Golden State, the glue that filled in needed spaces on both ends of the floor — a second shot creator, a guy who finished in transition, and the defensive presence on the perimeter they needed. Which is to say, they are going to miss him if he…

  16. It’s official, Kobe Bryant out Friday. Not that it’s a surprise.

    Nov 22, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Don’t expect him to play Sunday, either. In a surprise to nobody after he sat out practice on Thursday due to soreness, Kobe Bryant is officially out Friday night when the Lakers take on the Golden State Warriors. Coach Mike D’Antoni said that at shootaround Friday, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. Stephen Curry also is…

  17. Steven Adams shakes his own hand after Byron Mullens snubs him (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT

    Steven Adams

    Byron Mullens is frustrated and falling out of the Clippers rotation — he played less than five minutes against the Thunder on Thursday night. The reason is when he is on the court the Clippers’ defensive numbers are a disaster. Can’t really fault Doc Rivers there. But Mullens was on the court at the end…

  18. Another game, another Thunder fan hits $20,000 half court shot (this one got Jay-Z hand shake)

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Oklahoma City Thunder- Game One

    Do the fans in Oklahoma City just head to the gym and practice half-court shots? For the second straight game a Thunder fan hit a half-court shot to win $20,000. That is five made in the last 22 home games in OKC. Seriously, I’m not sure Stephen Curry hits that high a percentage from half…

  19. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  20. Warriors’ reserves embarrasses themselves, so Mark Jackson embarrasses them

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    With his team up 23 points and fewer than four minutes remaining against the Jazz on Monday, Warriors coach Mark Jackson pulled his top players in favor of Ognjen Kuzmic, Marreese Speights, Nemanja Nedovic, Kent Bazemore and Draymond Green (who was replaced by Dewayne Dedmon a few seconds later). Promptly, those five reserves ceded a…

  21. Memphis’ Tony Allen suspended one game for kick to Chris Paul’s face

    Nov 19, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    Tony Allen said as much and I believe him — I don’t think he intentionally tried to kick Chris Paul in the face. I think he got badly burned leapt to cut off a pass that wasn’t coming, realized he was beat and tried to kick the ball to stop the play or foul Paul.…

  22. UPDATE: Stephen Curry diagnosed with concussion, out Wednesday for Warriors

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    UPDATE 4:50 PM: This really isn’t a surprise if you saw the play — Stephen Curry has been diagnosed with what the team called a “mild concussion” and he will not play Wednesday. I’m not a fan of the word “mild” when it comes to brain injuries (I have concerns about how the “warrior mentality”…

  23. With O’Neal out, Warriors sign Dewayne Dedmon from D-League

    Nov 19, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Continental Tire Las Vegas Invitational - Day 2 - USC v South Carolina

    The news was not good but it was what was expected: an MRI on Jermaine O’Neal confirmed a bruised right knee and right groin strain. The backup big man is going to miss some time. For depth, the Warriors signed Dewayne Dedmon from their D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz, reports CSNBayArea.com. Dedmon was signed for…

  24. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…
