  1. Three Stars of the Night: Two All-Stars and a guy who should have been

    Feb 14, 2013, 2:27 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Paul George

    I wanted to do an all All-Star edition of three stars tonight, but I couldn’t leave Josh Smith off (representing he and Al Horford, who alone almost beat the Magic)… but he should have been one. So I’m calling this the All-Star edition anyway. As always some guys are close but just missed out. Joe…

  2. What you’ll see in Dunk Contest: James White vs. Gerald Green (VIDEO)

    Feb 13, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    James White, Robin Lopez

    A lot of casual fans shrugged when the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest lineup was announced — these are pretty much guys from the end of the NBA bench. But those of us basketball junkies high-fived each other (virtually) because the NBA went out and got dunk contest guys to do it. Specifically the Knicks James…

  3. Tuesday And-1 links: How good can Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson be together?

    Feb 12, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    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 like you love Girl Scout thin mint cookies. • Charles Barkley says that Stephen…

  4. The Extra Pass: The Spurs and time

    Feb 12, 2013, 9:29 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Extra Pass is a column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at the San Antonio Spurs.  You don’t have to scrounge for reasons for why the San Antonio Spurs have such great success. A quick point of the finger to Tim Duncan…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos…. Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: A Celtics team on the second night of a back-to-back where the first game went three overtimes ran into a Bobcats that doesn’t have a lot going for it but…

  6. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  7. Pacers may get Danny Granger back this week

    Feb 10, 2013, 9:39 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    The Pacers have managed to do just fine to this point of the season without Danny Granger, who was by far the team’s leading scorer a season ago. They may not have to be without him for much longer. Granger practiced on Sunday, and Indiana may get him back into the lineup as early as…

  8. Rudy Gay hits the overtime game-winner to beat the Pacers (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2013, 11:52 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Rudy Gay was just 3-13 from the field and scored six total points through three quarters of the Raptors’ win over the Pacers on Friday. Indiana led 72-64 after three at home, and was poised to close it out against a Toronto team that it had simply been better than to this point in the…

  9. Tyler Hansbrough throws Jonas Valanciunas to the ground (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2013, 10:40 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    Midway through the fourth quarter of Friday’s game between the Pacers and the Raptors, Tyler Hansbrough got a little more physical than the rules should allow while battling for position under the basket with Jonas Valanciunas. Hansbrough literally throws Valanciunas to the ground near the end of the play, but the officials on the floor…

  10. 2013 All-Star Three-Point Contest participants announced

    Feb 7, 2013, 7:42 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis

    The participants for the 2013 Foot Locker Three-Point Contest that will take place as the penultimate event of All-Star Saturday have been announced, and as usual, some of the league’s best shooters make up the field of six. Representing the East we have Paul George of the Pacers, Kyrie Irving of the Cavaliers, and Steve…

  11. 2013 Slam Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans will defend title against Green, Bledsoe, Ross, Faried, and James White

    Feb 7, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Utah’s Jeremy Evans — the human pogo stick — will be back to defend his All-Star weekend Sprite Dunk Contest title. But a repeat will not be easy because the NBA has lined up some high flyers to step up to challenge him — Gerald Green of the Pacers, James White of the Knicks, Eric…

  12. What injury? Kobe challenges Howard to step up with Gasol out.

    Feb 7, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Kobe Bryant is done with the injury excuse. No doubt injuries have set the Lakers back this season, they’ve been part of the reason they have never really coalesced as a team. But the best teams step up when players are injured. The Chicago Bulls are 29-19 and haven’t had Derrick Rose all season. The…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Paul George with the reverse slam dunk after the look-away pass from Roy Hibbert (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Paul George, Taj Gibson

    This play is great, for a couple of reasons. We have Paul George missing a baseline jumper, followed by his teammate Roy Hibbert securing the offensive rebound. As Hibbert is defended along the baseline and the defense forgets completely about George, he fires the no-look pass, which George receives while cutting to the basket. Realizing…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers, Bulls get together for shootout

    Feb 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' West shoots the basketball defended by Bulls' Boozer during the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while building a nuclear fusion reactor in your garage like any normal teenager…. Pacers 111, Bulls 101: If you were expecting a defense struggle between two of the top three defenses in the Association… well, sorry. There wasn’t a lot of defense and…

  18. Three Stars of the Night: Almost Perfect

    Feb 5, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    Heat's James drives against Bobcats' Mullens, Gordon and Walker in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    You never know when it’s going to be one of those nights. You know, when regardless of what you do the shots just fall. It doesn’t matter if it’s a twisting drive to the rim, a deep three pointer, or your standard pull up from the elbow. Some nights the rim just seems bigger. Tonight,…

  19. The Pacers give the Bulls a double dose of George (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hill slaps hands George during their NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Indianapolis

    How sure are we that Bulls-Pacers wasn’t played in Bizarro world? Indiana’s 111-101 victory over the Bulls isn’t necessarily strange, but the whole breaking 100 points thing has happened just eight times in regulation this year for the Pacers. The Pacers hadn’t even cracked the 105 mark in regulation before tonight, but they managed to…

  20. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  21. 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…

  22. NBA admits referee errors at end of recent Mavericks, Pacers losses

    Jan 30, 2013, 8:27 PM EDT

    George Hill, Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala

    Congratulations Dallas and Indiana, you will have the satisfaction of forever knowing you were right and the referees were wrong at the end of your recent close losses, missing potentially game-changing calls. That and $4 gets you a grande latte at Starbucks. Wednesday the NBA admitted two blown calls in recent games. In Monday night’s…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Crazy endings all across the league

    Jan 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    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…

  24. 2013 NBA All-Star reserves announced

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    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,…

  25. PBT’s NBA Mid-Season Awards: All hail Kevin Durant

    Jan 24, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    It’s the halfway point of the NBA season. To me having a serious discussion about end of season awards before this point is like discussing the 2016 presidential election today — it’s all speculation and wishful thinking. Now we have enough games to have a body of evidence and a discussion. So here are my…
