    UPDATE 2:48 p.m.: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports the deal has been agreed to, and will send Gerald Green, Miles Plumlee, and a lottery protected 2014 first round draft pick to Phoenix in exchange for Luis Scola. “The trade is consistent with our stated plan to continue to acquire young assets,” said Suns President of…

  2. David West misses shootaround due to illness, expected to play in Game 6

    Jun 1, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    This isn’t cause for alarm for Pacers fans, but it is something worth watching. From the team’s official Twitter feed: David West was absent from Pacers shootaround today with an upper respiratory infection. He will play in tonight’s Game 6. (via @pacersdmb) — Indiana Pacers (@Pacers) June 1, 2013 A slowed or ineffective West would…

  3. Lance Stephenson asked to guard LeBron James in Game 4

    May 29, 2013, 3:39 PM EDT

    Heat's James and Pacers' Stephenson prepare to play during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    No single person can guard LeBron James even competently over the course of an entire game. It takes multiple skilled defenders, along with a solid team defensive strategy just to slow the game’s best player into turning in a below average performance. The Pacers were successful against James in Game 4, limiting the league’s MVP…

  4. Ian Mahinmi’s hard Game 1 foul on LeBron upgraded to a flagrant one (VIDEO)

    May 24, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Ian Mahinmi, Tony Brothers

    Early in the fourth quarter of the Heat’s Game 1 win over the Pacers, Ian Mahinmi grabbed LeBron James by the arm as he went up for the shot, causing James to fall a bit awkwardly as he crashed to the floor. It was ruled as a common foul at the time, but has since…

  5. Blake Griffin with the acrobatic left-handed throwdown against the Pacers (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Clippers were having no problem scoring inside against the Pacers on Thursday, but the points weren’t coming on the typical high-flying plays we’ve become accustomed to seeing from the Clippers this season. Midway through the third quarter, Blake Griffin changed all that. Griffin elevates and throws it down with the left hand, while being…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers win with offense. Again.

    Feb 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Al Horford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching a toddler drain trick shot after trick shot… Lakers 92, Nets 83: Up until this game I was still sure the Lakers were not a playoff team, that the recent streak would not be enough for the hole they dug. But…

  7. Pacers win ugly over Carmelo Anthony-less knicks

    Jan 10, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard Smith guards Indiana Pacers forward George during the third quarter of an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There’s no question that the Indiana Pacers, much like any team in the NBA, couldn’t care less exactly how their wins are acquired. Whether they come due to a stifling defensive effort that allows the offense to barely get by is of no consequence; all that matters is that ultimate result. Indiana took down the…

  8. J.R. Smith throws it down on Pacers’ Ian Mahinmi (VIDEO)

    Jan 10, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Ian Mahinmi, J.R. Smith

    It’s been a brutal first half in Indiana for both teams offensively, but J.R. Smith provided a momentary reprieve from the darkness with this thunderous slam dunk over Ian Mahinmi of the Pacers. Smith explodes to the rim from beyond the three-point arc, and seems to have the rim in his sights from the moment…

  9. JaVale McGee literally throws it down on the Pacers (VIDEO)

    Dec 7, 2012, 9:54 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    The leaping ability of JaVale McGee has been well-documented, yet he gave us another example of his skill in this department on Friday night against the Pacers. McGee gets the ball on the wing, and after a single dribble, elevates and throws it down over Ian Mahinmi — literally. Afterward, he celebrates by … shoveling…

  10. NBA Season Preview: Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 24, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) reacts after hitting a three point shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz  in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Last Season: Coming off their incredible championship season, the Mavericks let defensive anchor Tyson Chandler go to New York in order to retain future cap flexibility. While that decision certainly hurt the chances of a true title defense, the acquisition of Lamar Odom probably buried it altogether. Despite those massive offseason failings, the veteran Mavs…

  11. NBA Season Preview: Indiana Pacers

    Sep 25, 2012, 7:55 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Last season: The Pacers made moves to become a top-tier team in the East and they worked out. Roy Hibbert and Paul George both took some big steps forward, while David West added the consistent scorer they were looking for and George Hill provided balance with Darren Collison, though the two didn’t work well together.…

  12. The Inbounds: Indiana and defense of second

    Aug 6, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Welcome to the Inbounds, touching on one big idea, story, or discussion point of the day.  It’s fine to think the Celtics were the second best team in the East in last year’s playoffs (factoring the Bulls post-Rose injury). I mean, they finished second, right? They pushed the eventual NBA champions to seven games, and…

  13. Bobcats cut Augustin loose, Pacers sign him to deal

    Jul 12, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Darko Milicic

    So Indiana just traded Darren Collison then paid $1 million a year more to have D.J. Augustin backup George Hill? Interesting decision. But that’s what the Pacers have done (and got backup center Ian Mahinmi in the process). Here’s how it went down. On Wednesday the Pacers traded Collison to Dallas for Mahinmi. On Thursday,…

  14. Welcome to NBA signing day tracker: Griffin, Nash, more ink deals

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:05 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    It’s official, Steve Nash is a Los Angeles Laker. And Blake Griffin is a very rich Clipper. All the deals that have been reported in the past 10 days — such as Deron Williams re-signing with the Nets — go from “agreement reached” to “pen on paper” today. The league has a 10-day moratorium on…

  15. Report: Pacers trade Darren Collison to Mavs for Ian Mahinmi

    Jul 11, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    Darren_Collison

    Indiana is a team on the rise in the East, but they have come to the conclusion point guard Darren Collison is not part of that future. So they have traded him to the Mavericks, a story broken by Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress (via twitter): Indiana will acquire Ian Mahinmi (4-years, 16 million) in a…

  16. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  17. Video: Ian Mahinmi is one “superfly Superman”

    Mar 28, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Mavericks center Mahinmi drives on Lakers center Bynum during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Bet you never thought you’d watch a video where Ian Mahinmi walks around in a plush hotel robe. And then think it was pretty cool. The Mavericks big man from France is a bit of a hipster, plus has a good sense of humor about himself. Or so we learned from this video, which he…

  18. Nuggets Danilo Gallinari breaks thumb, could be out month

    Mar 20, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari

    In a tight Western Conference the Denver Nuggets are only a game and a half out of the nine seed — and missing the playoffs entirely — and this is not going to help their cause. Danilo Gallinari — the leading scorer on the Nuggets with 15.6 points per game — broke the thumb on…

    New Orleans Hornets' Jack puts his head in his hands after being called for a foul during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    What you missed while getting that nail you didn’t know you shot into your head removed… Celtics 87, Magic 56: Don’t go overboard with any “the Celtics are back” hype yet, but they got a quality win in our game of the night. Spurs 104, Hornets 102: New Orleans loses a lot of games but…

  20. Dirk Nowitzki out 4 games for “conditioning” on his knee

    Jan 21, 2012, 7:12 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Just prior to Dallas’ game against New Orleans, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle informed the media that Dirk Nowitzki would miss four straight games to work on “conditioning issues” according to multiple sources. BREAKING: Mavs coach Rick Carlisle says Dirk Nowitzki will be out at least four games to work on his conditioning.Sat Jan 21 23:53:34…

  21. Video: Chauncey Billups hits game winner for Clippers

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Billups game winner

    One play before this, the youngster D’Andre Jordan made a defensive mistake sliding off Jason Terry to get back to Ian Mahinmi, and we thought we’d be showing a Jason Terry three in this space. Instead, it’s Chauncey Billups. At the end of games he has to be one of the most feared Clippers, the…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  23. Weekend Observations 1.14.12: The Nightmarejao Effect

    Jan 14, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. Gregg Popovich’s talk about defense isn’t just his usual grousing. The Spurs were brilliant the first handful of games defensively but their regression has seemed very emblematic of last year’s team. They are slipping further and further away from what…

  24. Tuesday And-1 links: LaMarcus Aldridge coming to Portlandia

    Jan 10, 2012, 11:16 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol

    Welcome to our morning 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). Confession: I love Portlandia (the IFC comedy show). I really am going to love the episode where LaMarcus Aldridge makes a cameo. Kevin Garnett tells…

  25. Yi Jianlian recalled by Mavericks, solving all their problems

    Jan 9, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    Yi Jianlian

    The Dallas Mavericks don’t just want one low-cost project big man to fill out their rotation. They want all of them. Dallas’ signing of Ian Mahinmi last summer has paid off nicely this year, and in an effort to find a similarly successful player on an equally affordable salary, the Mavs signed former lottery pick…
