  1. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EST

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  2. Video: Saturday’s Top 10 plays

    Nov 11, 2012, 9:49 AM EST

    Matt Bonner, Stephen Jackson, Gerald Green

    It was a busy nine game slate on Saturday, and these are the 10 best plays of the night. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist finishing a fast break layup in traffic without a shoe should have been higher than number nine, Harden’s swinging from the rim swag at seven was pretty great, and despite the highlight-worthy plays, the…

  3. Video: Timberwolves beat the Pacers on a beautiful backdoor cut

    Nov 9, 2012, 11:41 PM EST

    Rick Adelman

    Chase Budinger really, really likes playing for Rick Adelman. He openly gushes about the opportunities Adelman’s corner offense creates for him, and how the principles of Adelman’s system mesh perfectly with his ability to shoot 3-pointers and make decisive cuts. With all the talk today after Mike Brown’s firing, it’s hard not to look at…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    Nov 8, 2012, 7:34 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  5. Winderman: Granger news takes pressure of Rose return

    Nov 7, 2012, 4:01 PM EST

    Derrick Rose in D Rose Short and Family Story Tee

    The upshot of Wednesday’s prime injury news is that the Bulls’ injury news no longer is nearly as grim. No sooner had the Pacers sent out their release about Danny Granger likely missing three months following a knee procedure, then Tom Thibodeau certainly would have been within his rights to call Derrick Rose and tell…

  6. Report: Pacers contact Mickael Pietrus after Granger news

    Nov 7, 2012, 2:03 PM EST

    Mickael Pietrus

    The Pacers may want to add some wing depth to their roster following the news that Danny Granger is out for three months allowing his left knee to heal. Which may mean enter Mickael Pietrus, reports Mike Wells of the Indy Star on twitter. The Pacers have already reached out to the agent of free…

  7. Pacers’ Granger out three months after shot to help knee

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s time for some Pacers players to step up because the cavalry is not coming over that hill. Not until about the start of February, anyway. The Indiana Pacers announced that their leading scorer of the past three years Danny Granger will be out three months after he “received an injection Tuesday to treat left…

  8. Spurs show Pacers, everyone that defense is why they are 4-0

    Nov 6, 2012, 1:49 AM EST

    Tim Duncan

    San Antonio has the advantage of continuity. Sure, they have the advantage of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, too. But the reason they have been as good as anyone in the NBA through the first week is they have continuity — same system, same coach, same core players they have had for a…

  9. Dwight Howard doesn’t like center being taken off All-Star ballot

    Nov 5, 2012, 9:29 PM EST

    Dwight Howard All-Star

    When you get around to doing your NBA All-Star voting this year, it will be a little different — you will vote for two guards and three frontcourt players per conference. The NBA wisely decided to get rid of the center position on the ballot because it simply didn’t fit with today’s game — do…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  11. Bobcats, Augustin had a free agency flap you didn’t notice

    Nov 2, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    D.J. Augustin

    It is the NBA’s equivalent of a tree falling in the forest — if the Bobcats have a free agency flap will anyone notice? Apparently it’s not just the superstar players — your Ray Allens and Dwight Howards — who have flaps with their teams. Who move on because of it. We just don’t noticed.…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers defense sucks, too

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

  13. Video: George Hill’s game-winning floater buries the Raptors

    Oct 31, 2012, 11:39 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Toronto Raptors

    Entertaining opening night contest in Toronto between the Raptors and the Pacers. There were plenty of solid performances for both teams — David West had his way offensively with 25 points in 28 minutes, Paul George finished with 14 points, 15 rebounds, and five assists, and for the Raptors, Kyle Lowry did it all with…

  14. A guide for which teams to watch

    Oct 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    Our ideas of fun may be completely different. Personally, I like to pretend I’m playing Supermarket Sweep in the grocery store, but you may like going out on “dates” or “talking to actual people.” With that said, I can’t in good faith tell you which teams will be fun this year. That’s a decision for…

  15. Pacers’ Granger out indefinitely with sore knee. Not good.

    Oct 30, 2012, 11:45 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Last season part of the reason Indiana burst on to the scene was health — they got very little out of their bench but their starters remained remarkably healthy all season. But just like everything did for Jerry Seinfeld, injuries have a way of evening out. Which is not good for the Pacers. And it…

  16. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EST

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  17. Four teams that could head off a Lakers vs. Heat NBA final

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    It’s the consensus of prognosticators (and me as well) — the NBA finals will be the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. You can already sense David Stern drooling like a Pavlovian dog thinking about the television ratings. What teams could destroy David Stern’s dream? There are four. While we…

  18. Pacers’ Gerald Green can get entire head above rim. Wow.

    Oct 27, 2012, 1:29 PM EST

    gerald-green-head-over-rim

    Gerald Green has mad hops. Don’t believe me, check out that photo. That has always been the case — coming out of high school and into the NBA his ability to get up has never been questioned. His all-around game, yes. But not his hops. It was that athleticism that got him taken in the…

  19. Video: Friday night’s best dunks courtesy LeBron, Green

    Oct 27, 2012, 10:29 AM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against New Orleans Hornets' Greivis Vasquez and Ryan Anderson during their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    Friday night was the last night of preseason basketball. And we say goodbye without much sadness because it means no more games with key players sitting out for “general soreness” or coaches experimenting with lineups or guys destined for the D-League racking up 30 minutes a game. We’re ready for games that matter. But we…

  20. Pacers’ George Hill could miss season opener with sore hip

    Oct 26, 2012, 9:54 AM EST

    George Hill

    After George Hill took control during the playoffs last year, the Indiana Pacers let Darren Collison walk and gave Hill the starting point guard job this season. Except, he may not be able to start the season. Coach Frank Vogel is trying to remain optimistic he’ll be there, he told the Indy Star. The Pacers…

  21. The 2012-2013 All-Breakout Team

    Oct 25, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    Last season, Jeremy Lin coming out of nowhere (and the ensuing Linsanity) was the perfect headlining story for a crazy, compacted season. Lin was absolutely the breakout star of the year, but we also saw Ersanity (Ersan Ilyasaova) become a thing — at least in Milwaukee, anyway. And Kevin Love‘s nightly performances? Just good old-fashioned…

  22. NBA Season Preview: Dallas Mavericks

    Oct 24, 2012, 1:59 PM EST

    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…

  23. Video: Omri Caspi can’t stop Gerald Green, dunk ensues

    Oct 24, 2012, 11:22 AM EST

    Gerald Green, Dante Cunningham

    You can’t take anything away from game results and team outcomes in the preseason — the Lakers are 0-6, could go 0-8 and that is going to impact their regular season about as much as what Eva Longoria did about her Tony Parker tattoos. But you can take notice of individual performances and improvements. Take…

  24. NBA to remove center designation from All-Star ballot

    Oct 24, 2012, 12:49 AM EST

    All-Star Ballot (2011)

    It’s about time. For years the All-Star ballot has played this silly game — Tim Duncan would play the center role for the Spurs, as he has done pretty much since David Robinson retired, but he and the team would insist he be listed as a forward on the ballot. The play of big men…

  25. Dwyane Wade admits Heat’s lack of size is weakness

    Oct 23, 2012, 7:56 PM EST

    Miami Heat's James and teammate Wade walk to the bench in a timeout against the Detroit Pistons in a preseason NBA basketball game in Miami

    When NBA general managers were asked who they thought would win the NBA title this year, they overwhelmingly chose the Miami Heat to repeat. Even people looking to pick against the Heat this season have to do so in terms of defining their pick against Miami. They have the best player in the game, two…
