    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 2

    Here is our daily 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).

  2. Monday And-1 links: Apparently Web surfers love the Magic

    Here is our daily 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). Which three teams lead the NBA is traffic to their Web sites? Two are pretty obvious — the Lakers and Heat. But the third is…

  3. Pacers show fight, Lakers don’t and roll over again in loss

    Jan 23, 2012, 2:16 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Paul George

    The Indiana Pacers know who they are — balanced and unselfish. They also fight. Down by 13 in the first quarter Sunday they come out in the second quarter throwing haymakers (and shoot 67 percent). Break Roy Hibbert’s nose and he’ll come back in the fourth quarter and give you eight points with the game…

  4. So… what exactly are the Sixers?

    Jan 22, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    From SBNation’s excellent Sixers’ blog Liberty Ballers (pardon the extensive blockquote, but I need it for context): Denver, Atlanta, Miami. That was the “tough stretch” Jordan wrote about early last week. Finally, after 13 games where the opponents winning percentage was a lowly .371, they’d play some actual competition. Now, we’d find out if this…

  5. NBA admits refs missed a huge call at the end of the Pacers’ win over the Warriors

    Jan 21, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    George Hill, Darren Collison

    Kevin Love‘s big shot to beat the Clippers may have been the big story in the NBA on Friday, but there was another play near the end of regulation in the game between the Pacers and the Warriors that was just as exciting. Only with that one, the NBA admits the officials made a horrible…

  6. Friday And-1 links: JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son

    Jan 20, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Welcome to our 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). JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son, even if her defense of him shows a few blind spots. As a parent, I can relate… except my kids…

  7. Thursday And-1 links: Glen Davis drops his shorts

    Jan 19, 2012, 11:27 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic

    Welcome to our 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). Glen Davis, you need to keep your pants on when talking to the ref. It’s pretty much an automatic technical. What are the Sixers doing right…

  8. Feared Blake Griffin, Chris Paul pick-and-roll lacks the roll

    Jan 18, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    From the second Blake Griffin said “lob city,” every one of us pictured his pick-and-roll with Chris Paul as potentially the most devastating play in the NBA. We pictured unstoppable dunks. So far, not so much. Through 11 games this season, Blake Griffin has gotten a shot attempt as the roll man in the pick-and-roll…

  9. Wednesday And-1 links: Cuban is still spending on something

    Jan 18, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Welcome to our 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). Mark Cuban is going to spend about $1.4 million on Mavericks championship rings. He’ll do it without blinking. He’d gladly do it again next year, but…

  10. Draft class of ’08 not getting many contract extensions

    Jan 16, 2012, 9:02 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Pop quiz: How many players out of the 2008 NBA draft have gotten the early extensions to their rookie deals as of now? Answer: One. Derrick Rose. That could change a little over the next 10 days — Jan. 25 is the deadline to do an early extension — but only a little. As David…

  11. Danny Granger, Pacers will host dinner for Pacers workers affected by lockout

    Jan 14, 2012, 8:30 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Danny Granger is good to his word. From the Indianapolis Star: Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger will host the dinner he tweeted about during the NBA lockout. Sunday’s event at Bankers Life Fieldhouse is for many of the part-time employees who did not get paid from July 1 until Nov. 26. “The plan was for…

  12. Hawks’ Al Horford out three months, maybe entire season

    Jan 12, 2012, 4:11 PM EDT

    Al Horford

    This is a punch to the gut in Atlanta. The Hawks have gotten off to a good start — 7-4 record and ranked in the league’s top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. But now they lose All-Star center Al Horford until almost the start of the playoffs if not the entire rest of…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe drops another 40

    Jan 12, 2012, 7:58 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while you tried to shame your kid into behaving…. Clippers 95, Heat 89: The game where the rims were afraid was our game of the night. Lakers 90, Jazz 87 (OT): The Lakers might not have gotten to the overtime without Kobe Bryant dropping 40 points — but when Kobe went cold…

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

    Jan 10, 2012, 11:16 AM EDT

    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).

  15. Sixers beat Pacers… can Philly win the Atlantic division?

    Jan 10, 2012, 1:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jeff Foster, Lance Stephenson, Tyler Hansbrough

    We’re only eight games into the season — about 12 percent of the way —so drawing broad conclusions is tough. But it was hard not to look at a couple games Monday night and not have one particular question pop up. The game first was the 76ers taking on the Indiana Pacers, two of the…

  16. Monday And-1 links: Who is Lakers second scoring option?

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    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). Who is the Lakers second scoring option after Kobe? Well, Kobe Bryant says it’s Andrew Bynum. Kwame Brown thinks he deserves some of the credit…

  17. Weekend Observations: 25 things from the week that was

    Jan 7, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.  1. Ramon Sessions is not shooting well, but he’s drawing a lot of contact and his assists are up this year. He’s got a 19.5 PER and can’t get over 25 minutes per game on the Cavaliers. He’s much more of…

  18. Pacers make their case in win over Celtics, but it’s ugly

    Jan 6, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    This is the kind of game you end up with if you play a condensed season after a drastically shortened training camp. Which is to say — UGLY. But if you can look at it for a second you see one thing: These Pacers are legitimate. Maybe not Miami and Chicago legitimate, but to be…

  19. Heat’s LeBron James, Dwyane Wade both out Thursday

    Jan 5, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    And the Big 3 are down to one tonight. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James are both going to sit out Thursday night’s Heat game against the Hawks, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. We’re weighing everything, the schedule ahead, rest, how much treatment we can do and what the recovery time will be,” coach…

  20. Roy Hibbert wants you to know he is not Hasheem Thabeet

    Jan 5, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert — he of “Parks & Rec” fame, who also happens to be the starting center for the Indiana Pacers — has pet peeves, just like the rest of us. And not just people who don’t use their turn signals. He was on 790 The Ticket in Miami and was asked what is the…

  21. LeBron James rolls ankle, questionable for Thursday

    Jan 5, 2012, 2:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Miami could be without LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on Thursday in Atlanta. Wade was already day-to-day with a sore foot then late in the third quarter Wednesday night LeBron rolled his ankle when he inadvertently stepped on the foot of Paul George during a fast break. LeBron stayed in the game for another seven…

  22. Deron Williams, Kris Humphries out for Nets vs. Celtics

    Jan 4, 2012, 12:08 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    We knew it was going to be a few more days before fans could get back to booing Kris Humphries due to a sprained shoulder, but now another key Nets player will be out Wednesday against Boston. Deron Williams will sit out the game due to sore ribs, reports Stefan Bondy at the New York…

  23. Dwyane Wade questionable for Wednesday with sore foot

    Jan 4, 2012, 11:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat shooting guard Wade drives past Hawks center Horford and center Collins to score in the first half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Dwyane Wade has been playing through a sore foot and rather than risk it getting worse he may sit out the team’s Wednesday night contest against the Pacers. That is what coach Erik Spoelstra told the media Wednesday as Wade had skipped the morning shootaround because of the injury. Here is what Spoelstra said, via…

  24. Wednesday And-1 links, where Wade is eating plant food

    Jan 4, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    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). Dwyane Wade is eating Chlorophyll as part of his new diet. Seriously. Is Zach Randolph’s knee injury worse than the Grizzlies first let on? We…

  25. West brings jump shots, professionalism to young Pacers

    Jan 3, 2012, 10:06 PM EDT

    Jonas Jerebko, David West

    The Indiana Pacers are 4-1. Let that sink in for a second. They’ve done it against a soft schedule (something changing this week with the Heat and Celtics on deck), but in years past the Pacers did not consistently beat the teams they were supposed to beat. This year is different for a few reasons…
