    Apr 4, 2014, 6:52 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Phoenix Suns

    Kyrie Irving is unhappy in Cleveland. That’s not new news. But if he wants an opt out in his max extension this summer then how should Cleveland handle it?

    Apr 3, 2014, 2:26 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008, the Pacers scored more than 100 points. Those are things worth celebrating.

    Apr 1, 2014, 5:31 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings has been caught twice flopping this year, and that earns him a small fine.

    Mar 31, 2014, 2:14 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Sacramento Kings

    There is no timetable, but it looks like the Rockets will have

  7. PBT Power Rankings: Spurs running away at top, but a new team in cellar

    Mar 31, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan

    The Sixers win! The Sixers win! That was enough to move them out of the bottom spot of the PBT Power rankings for a week… which since they are not getting relegated is about the only excitement at the bottom of the table. At the top it is San Antonio then everybody else right now.…

  8. Chris Paul puts on show as Clippers beat Rockets (VIDEO)

    Mar 30, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Houston Rockets

    Blake Griffin was out for the Clippers just six minutes into the game (back spasms have him day-to-day), and that set them on their heels — the Rockets led by 15 at one point in the early in the second quarter. Then Chris Paul took over. The best point guard in the game scored 30 points…

  9. Back spasms force Blake Griffin to leave after playing just six minutes against Rockets

    Blake Griffin left Saturday’s game with back spasms, which isn’t at all a good sign for his team’s postseason chances.

    Mar 29, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

  11. Rockets’ Howard out 10 days; Clippers’ Granger out 3 games; both to miss Clippers vs. Rockets

    Mar 29, 2014, 1:37 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    At this time of year playoff teams are cautious with injuries — as much as you might need a player for key games now, you need him more for playoff games. Which accounts for these two bigs of news: Dwight Howard will be out for the Rockets for at least 10 days to rest a…

  12. Report: Rockets’ Patrick Beverley has torn meniscus, could be done for playoffs

    Mar 28, 2014, 1:31 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Sacramento Kings

    The Rockets’ starting point guard going to get a second opinion, but if he is out for the playoffs that is not good news for a team on the cusp of contention. It means more Jeremy Lin, but he’s not the defender Beverley is.

  13. Thursday NBA grades: The Sixers deserve an “A+”…. for tanking

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

  14. Four remaining games the Sixers can win

    Mar 28, 2014, 12:35 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

  15. Sixers tie NBA record with 26th consecutive loss, this one at hands of Rockets

    Mar 27, 2014, 11:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

  16. The Extra Pass: Breaking down the race for Sixth Man of the Year

    Mar 26, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Spurs' Ginobili goes to the basket past Miami's Wade during Game 5 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio

    The Sixth Man of the Year award likely will come down to a two-man race.

    Mar 25, 2014, 7:18 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    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. • Dwyane Wade is expected to play Wednesday night in the Heat/Pacers showdown, meaning…

  18. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

    Mar 24, 2014, 1:41 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich, Tony Parker

    San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

    Mar 24, 2014, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    I can’t see how these next two years could go wrong for the Lakers.

  20. Omer Asik swats Luc Mbah A Moute dunk attempt (VIDEO)

    Mar 21, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Omer Asik

    That is the Omer Asik we saw so much of last season — he remains one of the best defensive centers in the game. It’s why despite his contract (and the fact Houston can use him) I think some team trades for Asik this summer. Luc Richard Mbah A Moute got the pass and was…

  21. Jeanie Buss says she ‘still doesn’t understand’ why Dwight Howard left the Lakers

    Mar 20, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Dwight Howard

    Lakers president and co-owner Jeanie Buss says she still doesn’t understand why Dwight Howard left the Lakers in free agency. Really? Because everyone else does.
