    Feb 11, 2013, 7:57 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed wondering again why you watch the Grammy’s every year… Heat 107, Lakers 97: The Lakers are playing better, they are starting to figure things out. But that’s still a process. And when the Heat cranked it up in the fourth quarter they pulled…

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:36 PM EDT

    James Harden

    All-Star Saturday night once again will start off with the Sears Shooting Stars challenge — the event where NBA stars, retired NBA legends and some WNBA players (who often are the best shooters of the group in the event) have to drain a series of shots, ending with a half courter. You know, the event…

    I don’t really know how good of coaches they will be, but the 2013 Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game will have better dressed coaches than the All-Star Game itself. All-Stars and hipsters James Harden and Russell Westbrook have stepped up to coach the annual celebrity game that is part of the All-Star weekend. And if…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  8. Three Stars of the Night: Wade channels 2006 for a game

    Feb 7, 2013, 1:34 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Toney Douglas

    Should you have to lead your team to victory to make it into our nightly three stars tribute? I say no. But it helps. If you are someone like Carmelo Anthony on Wednesday with 31 points and 9 rebounds in a losing effort, you can still make the list. Well, he didn’t because I put…

  9. Will Rockets make run at Andrew Bynum this summer? Will others?

    Feb 6, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s part of the NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement — it is better financially for a potential free agent to become a free agent and re-sign with his team than to just sign an extension. So even if a sure max player has no intention of leaving a team, he has to at least dip…

  10. Three Stars: Paul George on the rise

    Feb 6, 2013, 2:04 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks' Korver guards Indiana Pacers' George during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There’s nothing quite like the phenomenon of watching a young player ascend to stardom. When a young player bursts on to the scene and starts making extraordinary plays routine, he captures our imagination. How good could 22-year-old Paul George be? Who does he remind us of? Potential is enticing on its own, but when it’s paired…

  11. The Houston Rockets tie the NBA record for most 3-pointers, blow past Golden State

    Feb 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    James Harden

    We thought Rockets-Warriors might be a shootout, but this was more like the grand finale of a fireworks show for a full 48 minutes. Behind a record trying 3-point performance, the Rockets issued a 140-109 beatdown of the Golden State Warriors in Houston. Let’s allow the numbers to tell the story: 77 We probably should…

  13. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist leaves on a stretcher after suffering a head injury against the Rockets (VIDEO)

    Feb 2, 2013, 10:28 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd Gilchrist

    Anytime a player leaves on a stretcher as a precaution, the injury sustained has to be considered to be extremely serious. It’s just that it didn’t look that way initially in the case of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. MKG took a knee to the back of the head from teammate Jeff Taylor, as he went up to…

  14. LeBron James, Tony Parker named conference players of the month

    Feb 1, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

    LeBron James and Tony Parker were named conference players of the month for games played in January, the league announced via official release.

  15. LeBron says stars that want to win need to sacrifice dollars

    Feb 1, 2013, 6:47 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-HEAT-NETS

    In the summer of 2014, LeBron James can and likely will opt out of his contract with the Miami Heat. And that has led to a raft of preparations and speculation about what’s next — the Lakers have cleared out enough cap space to offer a max deal that summer (even if they sign Dwight…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: For one night at least Celtics look fine post-Rondo

    Jan 31, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch. You can apply that one word sentence to Dwight Howard’s shoulder, he left the game midway through the fourth quarter and did not return, seeming to aggravate his…

  18. Irving, Lillard lead selections for All-Star Rising Stars (rookie/sophomore game)

    Jan 30, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Friday night of All-Star weekend is when the NBA likes to show off it’s future All-Stars. Or, at least the guys who seem like they are going to stick around the league for a while. It’s the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge — what the rest of us still call the rookie/sophomore game. Although for the…

  19. UPDATED: Stephen Curry, Andrew Bogut, Harrison Barnes out for Warriors Tuesday

    Jan 29, 2013, 5:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry bites a mouth piece during the first quarter of his NBA basketball game against Los Angeles Lakers in Oakland

    UPDATE 5:49 pm: Warriors coach Mark Jackson met with the media and said that Stephen Curry and, as expected, Andrew Bogut were out for Golden State on Tuesday in Cleveland, tweets Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio.

    George Hill, Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were getting your last Whopper Jr. — and I mean last Whopper Jr…. Nuggets 102, Pacers 101: It was the last game of a six-game road trip for the Pacers against an up-tempo Nuggets squad, and Indy was down 13 in…

  21. Stephen Curry rolls ankle, forced to leave game with “mild sprain” (VIDEO)

    Jan 28, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Golden State finally had some good news on the ankle front — Andrew Bogut returned from ankle surgery and looked pretty good with 12 points and 8 rebounds in 23 minutes — then this happened. Stephen Curry rolled his surgically-repaired right ankle during the third quarter. It was described as a mild sprain at first,…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs back in the saddle again

    Jan 28, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

    Tony Parker

    You know the consistently good Spurs are going to climb into the top spot a couple times during the season. The top four remain the same but we see some teams fall farther down the list while teams like the Wizards and Hornets climb. 1. Spurs (36-11, last week ranked No. 2). They have won…

  23. Rockets reinstate previously suspended rookie Royce White

    Jan 26, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Royce White

    The Rockets have reinstated rookie Royce White, the team and player announced together via a joint release.

It…

  24. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…
