  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Tuesday And-1 Links: Dwyane Wade to play vs. Pacers

    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…

  8. 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?

  9. Kobe Bryant talks with Jim Buss, reiterates ‘selfish’ desire for Lakers to contend next two seasons

    Mar 24, 2014, 10:18 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

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

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. Dwight Howard had a cyst removed from ankle, out Thursday

    Mar 20, 2014, 1:45 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    It’s nothing serious but he is going to miss at least a game.

  13. Bucks make it official, Larry Sanders out for the rest of the season

    Mar 19, 2014, 5:48 PM EDT

    larry sanders

    This was pretty much the only way Larry Sanders’ season was going to end. Poorly.

  14. Dwight Howard likely out for Rockets Thursday due to ankle injury

    Mar 19, 2014, 3:38 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Chicago Bulls

    Dwight Howard has been healthy this season, and with that played like the guy the Lakers thought they were getting a year ago. Houston has looked good and improving with him in the paint. But he was out Monday night against Utah with an ankle strain suffered against Miami on Sunday. Now he is going…

  15. Anthony Davis’ 40-20 game by the numbers

    Mar 17, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Celtics Pelicans Basketball

    The 2012 draft already looks like it will go down as one of the NBA’s stronger ones ever. Andre Drummond is incredibly promising. Damian Lillard won Rookie of the Year and is even better this season. But there’s no doubt, if the draft were re-done, Anthony Davis would remain the No. 1 pick. Days like…

  16. Heat execute in final minutes, Rockets still learning, fall in Miami

    Mar 16, 2014, 7:41 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Miami Heat

    Midway through the third quarter you had to like how the Rockets were playing against the Heat in Miami. Tied 92-92, the Rockets got what seemed like their 5,347th floater in the lane of the night, this time it was Chandler Parsons over Chris Andersen. The Rockets players did not fear the Heat shot blockers…

  19. Jarrett Jacks wants sleeved jerseys tailored specifically for individual players

    Mar 16, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors

    Jarrett Jack believes custom fitting players with the sleeved jerseys would reduce the complaints. But he still doesn’t like the way they look, regardless of how they do or do not impact performance. “We’re like the Beach Police,” Jack said.

  20. Report: Joakim Noah to receive $500K bonus if he’s named to All-NBA first team

    Mar 15, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    Joakim Noah receives a $500K bonus if he’s named to the All-NBA first team. Does he have a shot?

  21. Joakim Noah on Mike Dunleavy: ‘He’s finally giving Duke some credibility’

    Mar 14, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks

    In ESPN’s Fab Five documentary, Jalen Rose discussed how he felt about Duke while playing at Michigan. Rose: I hated Duke, and I hated everything I felt Duke stood for. Schools like Duke didn’t recruit players like me. I felt like they only recruited black players that were Uncle Toms. To many, that’s still the…

  22. Report: Houston Rockets to pursue Carmelo Anthony this summer

    Mar 14, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    At a panel during the Sloan Conference, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers described the arduous process of acquiring Andre Iguodala. The Warriors had no cap room last summer, so Myers faced a two-sided task to land the free agent. Not only did he negotiate with Iguodala, Myers discussed trades with other teams to…

  23. Thursday NBA grades: Don’t make Mike Dunleavy angry

    Mar 14, 2014, 3:16 AM EDT

    Mike Dunleavy, James Harden

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while applying for maybe the best journalism job out there…. Mike Dunleavy, Chicago Bulls. Don’t make Mike Dunleavy angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Dunleavy had no points in the first half before Chandler Parsons caught Dunleavy just above the eye with an…
