    Nov 26, 2013, 2:32 AM EST

    Ty Lawson

    We know you might have missed some NBA action Monday night as you chased a flock of feral turkeys around New York City, so we bring you grades from the night to help you get caught up. Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets. Lawson spent the first half of this game deferring (J.J. Hickson had 12 points…

  2. With Kobe staying as highest-paid player in NBA, the Lakers can rebuild but it’s not easy

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant has signed a contract extension and is staying on with the Lakers for two more seasons. That news made Lakers nation happy — go to a Lakers game and you see the flood of 24 jerseys in the crowd — you quickly realize why the Lakers could not let him go at any…

  3. Report: Derrick Rose to have surgery Monday, likely to repair meniscus and end season

    Nov 24, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose will have surgery on his right knee on Monday, coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday. Rose has a choice with getting his torn right meniscus repaired, although both options involve surgery (and it depends somewhat on the tear itself). Both options have big impacts on the Bulls front office and its next move. One…

  4. Players around the league react to Derrick Rose’s injury

    Nov 23, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose waits for the start of a media interview at the start of the team's training camp at the Berto Arena in Chicago, Illinois

    When Derrick Rose went down with an injury to his non-surgically repaired knee on Friday night in a game against the Portland Trail Blazers, it sent shockwaves throughout the NBA. It’s not hyperbolic to say this could end up being one of the most important injuries in the history of the league, and the gravity…

  5. Mike Woodson fined $25,000 for saying referees not giving ‘Melo superstar calls

    Nov 22, 2013, 2:08 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    The Knicks were frustrated at the end of the loss to the Pacers — at one end Iman Shumpert brushed Paul George on the elbow during his three pointer and was called for a foul. At the other end on the final shot, Carmelo Anthony helped create a lot more body contact with George but…

  6. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  7. Wednesday night NBA Grades: The Grizzlies own California

    Nov 21, 2013, 2:27 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Clippers

    Here are our nightly grades from the night’s action around the Association, or what you missed while reading why Los Angeles is the best food town in America (it is)….. Memphis Grizzlies. California isn’t the “Bear Republic” anymore; it’s the “Grizzlies Republic.” With their 88-81 overtime win Wednesday at Golden State, Memphis became the first…

  8. Good news: Knicks play much better. Bad news: Still not good enough to beat Pacers.

    Nov 20, 2013, 10:58 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    If you tried to use the words “moral victory” in the Knicks locker room Wednesday night the players’ reactions would have ranged from icy glares to a rant that would have earned them the same fine for swearing Boston’s Gerald Wallace was just given by the league. There are no moral victories in the NBA.…

  9. Luol Deng, Derrick Rose ensure Pacers undefeated no more

    Nov 16, 2013, 11:16 PM EST

    Bulls vs. Cavaliers

    It was just one of those nights for Indiana. A few times a season teams have games where they just can’t do anything right. Indiana’s first off night of the season — and the first night their defense took a vacation — came in Chicago on the night the Bulls found their missing groove on…

  10. Lance Stephenson with the dunk and the dance (VIDEO)

    Nov 16, 2013, 6:00 PM EST

    Lance Stephenson

    Lance Stephenson is off to a fantastic beginning this season, and there’s no question he’s been a factor in the Pacers getting off to a perfect 9-0 start. Stephenson has already posted a triple-double, and after sprinting down the court through traffic to finish with the slam against the Bucks, he added some swag to…

  11. Pacers improve to 9-0 with blowout win over Bucks

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:41 PM EST

    Roy Hibbert, Andre Drummond

    The Pacers remain undefeated after running their league-best record to 9-0 with a blowout 104-77 win over the Bucks. Milwaukee is a depleted team right now due to multiple players being injured, and there’s not nearly enough depth to sustain even one starter being out, much less multiple productive players. Larry Sanders, Caron Butler, and…

  12. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  13. NBA shows off sleeved Christmas Day uniforms in “Jingle Hoops” ad

    Nov 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EST

    nba christmas day sleeved jerseys

    I know it’s too early for Christmas ads already (I’m one of those guys who doesn’t want to see this stuff until Thanksgiving) but this ad from Adidas showing off the “BIG Logo” Holiday Collection uniforms — which have sleeves and oversized logos on the front, pictures leaked last week — was good enough to bring…

  14. PBT Extra: Just how good are the Indiana Pacers?

    Nov 13, 2013, 6:50 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    While a number of other teams considered contenders (Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles Clippers) have stumbled a little out of the gate the Indiana Pacers have raced out to an impressive 8-0 start. Kay Adams and I talk about the impact of Lance Stephenson on the team, what to do with Danny Granger (I think he…

  15. Pacers’ Lance Stephenson given pathetic taunting technical (VIDEO)

    Nov 12, 2013, 10:05 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Really? Lance Stephenson has really stepped up his game this season and Monday night put up a triple-double (13 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds) with Tony Allen covering him a chunk of the night. That Memphis chose to stick arguably the best perimeter defender in the NBA on him speaks to how well Stephenson is…

  16. The Extra Pass: Five observations from the East and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    After a busy Monday night in the NBA, let’s swing around the Eastern Conference for a few observations. Indiana: If Roy Hibbert keeps getting that “verticality” respect from officials, it’s goodnight, Irene time for all of the other the Defensive Player of the Year candidates. Look at these numbers: Per 36 minutes on his career: 2.6…

  17. Monday night NBA Grades: Lance Stephenson with the triple double

    Nov 12, 2013, 2:12 AM EST

    Lance Stephenson

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while weeping that Lionel Messi will be out 6-8 weeks…. Lance Stephenson, Indiana Pacers. He had a triple-double with 13 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. He has played the most complete, efficient basketball of his young NBA career this season and it showed…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  19. Pacers admit to goal of securing No. 1 seed for playoffs

    Nov 10, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    David West

    The Pacers are off to a perfect 7-0 start after Saturday night’s win over the Nets, and the reason for it may have more than a little to do with how things ended for the team last season. Indiana pushed the eventual champion Heat to seven games in the astern Conference Finals, before ultimately being…

  20. Pacers improve to 7-0 with win over Nets

    Nov 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    paul george

    Heading into this weekend, we wondered if the Pacers would be able to continue their perfect start to the season facing a tough road matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. But while the Nets are still finding their way from a chemistry standpoint, the Pacers are already there. And behind yet another strong all-around game from…

  21. Three things to watch this weekend: Can Pacers stay unbeaten?

    Nov 8, 2013, 4:38 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We here at PBT don’t believe in “days off” or “sleep” or any of the rest of that pansy stuff — we will be here all weekend giving you NBA content. Still, we want to give you some NBA storylines to watch over the weekend as you bounce between your regular Saturday pickup game and getting…

  22. Roy Hibbert doesn’t like Andre Drummond anymore

    Nov 7, 2013, 4:38 PM EST

    Roy Hibbert, Andre Drummond

    Roy Hibbert has been an All-Star. He’d probably be a U.S. Olympian if he were allowed to be. He’s one of the top players on one of the NBA’s top teams. He’s what Andre Drummond wanted to be. So how does Drummond go about rising to that stature? Well, he worked on his conditioning so…

  23. Paul George says Bulls success was in Jordan era, today it’s different

    Nov 7, 2013, 4:05 PM EST

    paul george

    The Indiana Pacers are feeling it. They have been the best team in the NBA to start the season — their defense is still suffocating allowing opposing teams to shoot just 37.5 percent so far (and giving 86.3 points per 100 possessions, best in the league by 5 points in this young season); while on…

  24. Roy Hibbert says he’s targeting Defensive Player of the Year, predicts Paul George as MVP

    Nov 7, 2013, 11:16 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    We didn’t formally reach out to Roy Hibbert to get his predictions for the 2013-14 season, but thanks to the availability of social media he was able to turn in his picks. After the Pacers pulled away in the fourth to beat the Bulls on Wednesday and improv to a perfect 5-0 on the season,…

  25. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…
