  1. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Even without Westbrook Thunder take top spot

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    It’s legitimate to question how well Oklahoma City will fair in the roughly 27 games they will play without Russell Westbrook, but so far so good and that slides the to the top of the last power rankings of 2013. 1. Thunder (25-5, Last Week No. 2). They won all their games last week, but…

  2. Stephen Curry, Kyrie Irving had quite a duel Sunday (VIDEO)

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Stephen Curry

    Kyrie Irving had 27 points with 11 of those coming in the fourth quarter, including a dramatic and contested three to send the game to overtime. Yet he may have been outdone by Stephen Curry, who had 29 points, 24 of those in the first half but he had the dagger in OT to secure…

  3. The Extra Pass: Changes coming in threes; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    If you’ve watched basketball this year and thought at some point, “Man, these teams sure are shooting a lot of threes”, you’re not alone. Firing up shots from behind the arc has become more of a standard practice for most NBA teams (except for good ol’ Memphis) and teams like the Phoenix Suns and Portland…

  4. Sunday night NBA grades: Thunder’s Durant, Lamb both get an “A”

    Dec 30, 2013, 3:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the Dallas Cowboys miss the playoffs again… Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. With Russell Westbrook out a whole lot more scoring load falls on Durant’s shoulders — and he answered against a tired Rockets team. Durant had 31 points on 11-17 shooting, 13…

  5. Kyrie Irving hits the contested three to send Cavs to overtime against Warriors (VIDEO)

    Dec 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    kyrie

    The Cavaliers ultimately fell to the Warriors on Sunday, but not before extending the game to an overtime session courtesy of this three-pointer from Kyrie Irving. Klay Thompson contested this about as well as possible under the circumstances, but Irving was able to create enough space after the fake to get the shot off over…

  6. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar basically questions Andrew Bynum’s love of basketball

    Dec 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Andrew Bynum

    When the Los Angeles Lakers first drafted Andrew Bynum they brought in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as his personal coach — people forget Kareem was about as fundamentally sound a center as the game had seen. He seemed a good fit with the very raw Bynum. Kareem tried to work with Bynum, but they clashed. It was…

  7. Blake Griffin: Warriors were ‘cowardly.’ Andrew Bogut: Yeah, so? We won

    Dec 27, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Andrew Bogut, DeAndre Jordan, Darren Collison

    Draymond Green elbowed Blake Griffin in the face, and then Andrew Bogut grabbed Griffin and refused to release. So, of course, Griffin was ejected from the Clippers-Warriors game on Christmas. Green took a total dirty shot, and seeing an opportunity to get an opposing All-Star ejected, Bogut seized it with another non-basketball play. There are…

  8. League admits Blake Griffin should not have been ejected Christmas night

    Dec 26, 2013, 5:16 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    When it happened everyone — from analyst Jon Barry to the NBA Twitterverse — knew it was a bad set of calls. Blake Griffin got ejected for two technical fouls after he had two flagrant fouls committed against him. The game had gotten a little physical but the referees — led by Bill Kennedy —…

  9. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  10. Draymond Green got ejected, Andre Iguodala had a great reaction

    Dec 26, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala reacts after scoring over the Golden State Warriors in the final seconds of the second quarter of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Denver

    In case you missed it — and if you didn’t stay up to watch the Clippers at Warriors late game on Christmas Day then you really missed out — let me try to give you a little context. Golden State’s Draymond Green got ejected after he got his elbow up above the shoulder and caught…

  11. The Extra Pass: LeBron and Kobe miss each other once again, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — The reason behind the NBA scheduling a Christmas Day marquee matchup between the Heat and the Lakers had nothing to do with the current fate of the respective franchises, and everything to do with potentially getting to see two of the game’s biggest stars competing in a rare head-to-head matchup. A Finals…

  12. Blake Griffin ejected after dust up with Andrew Bogut (VIDEO)

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    That is not worthy of an ejection. But this little dust up is what got Blake Griffin tossed, this gave him his second technical in the game and that is an automatic ejection. The first technical came when Draymond Green got an elbow up above Griffin’s shoulders and he reacted to the blow. Not sure…

  13. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…

  14. Warriors beat Clippers… do we have a rivalry brewing?

    Dec 26, 2013, 2:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There isn’t a full-blown rivalry between the Clippers and Warriors. Yet. NBA rivalries are forged in the playoffs and these two up-and-coming teams in the West have yet to meet on that stage. But can they please? Can we get a Clippers/Warriors playoff matchup this season? I don’t think that’s too much to ask. The…

  15. PBT Extra: Previewing Clippers at Warriors, the best game of Christmas Day

    Dec 24, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    The NBA has saved the best for last — the Los Angeles Clippers vs. the Golden State Warriors. Stephen Curry vs. Chris Paul. In this PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talk about how the Warriors could use this kind of big stage to break out of their recent doldrums, while on the other side…

  16. How the NBA came to own Christmas Day

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Chicago Bulls

    How big is Christmas Day to the NBA? Look at it this way: Last year’s Christmas Day game between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder drew more viewers (9.6 million people) than all but one playoff game prior to the NBA Finals (that was Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Miami and…

  17. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  19. Report: NBA considering doing away with draft lottery, going to 30-year set “wheel” cycle

    Dec 23, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Grant Gilbert

    It’s going to be the first big issue that falls in the lap of new commissioner Adam Silver — tanking. By the time the All-Star Game rolls around and we move close to the trade deadline a lot of teams are going to eye the deep draft of talent coming up, wonder why they should…

  20. Patrick Beverley fractures hand, out up to six weeks

    Dec 22, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Patrick Beverley

    Patrick Beverley, relative to an average starting point guard, is not crucial to his team. He can run a decent offense, but James Harden handles the ball more for the Rockets. He can hawk the ball on defense, but Dwight Howard drive Houston on that end. So, this news isn’t the end of the world,…

  21. Warriors’ Marreese Speights ejected for grabbing Nick Young around the neck (VIDEO)

    Dec 22, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    speights

    Early in the fourth quarter of the Lakers loss at Golden State on Saturday, Nick Young got into the lane for what was going to be an uncontested layup or dunk. Marreese Speights didn’t want to give up the easy two points, however, and grabbed Young from behind around the neck to take him down.…

  22. The Extra Pass: Chicago’s never-ending story, plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Nets Bulls Basketball

    In the early days of mixed martial arts, there were quite a few athletes who would refuse to submit in the ring. Their arm could be on the verge of snapping, but it didn’t matter – they wouldn’t give up. They would rather break their arm. I remember holding these athletes in such high regard,…

  23. Thursday night NBA grades: Kevin Durant is good at basketball

    Dec 20, 2013, 4:47 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching my Long Beach State 49ers beat USC (at least that’s what I did with part of my night)… Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. He led his team to an easy win and how about this for a line: 32 points on 13-of-20 shooting,…

  24. No stars, no problem: Spurs reserves too much for Warriors in 104-102 win

    Dec 20, 2013, 2:55 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Warriors, Spurs

    When the Spurs rest Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili they still are pretty darn good. Ask the Heat — last year Gregg Popovich and the Spurs were fined $250,000 by the league for late notice resting the big three for a Thursday night showcase game in Miami. What people forget is the Spurs…

  25. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…
