  1. No suspension for DeMarcus Cousins; injury may sideline him anyway

    Mar 13, 2013, 6:33 PM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins will almost certainly sit out Wednesday night when the Sacramento Kings take on the Chicago Bulls. But not because the league told him too. In a surprise decision, the league is not going to suspend Cousins for the elbow to the head of Mike Dunleavy on Monday reports Sam Amick at the USA…

    Carmelo Anthony

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

    New York Knicks' Smith walks off the floor after missing a shot in their NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in New York

    On the scale of Flagrant II fouls, J.R. Smith‘s on Harrison Barnes Monday was not as bad as many. But Joey Crawford and the referee corp saw the replay above and decided the foul was “unnecessary and excessive” — the threshold that has to be met for the Flagrant II and automatic ejection. As Mike…

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    UPDATE: 7:20 p.m. ET: Carmelo Anthony is out for this one, according to multiple reports.

    Woodson JR Smith

    This went unnoticed during Thursday night’s closer-than-expected contest between the Knicks and the Thunder, but you can bet that the league will be reviewing it in the days that follow.

    New York Knicks' guard J.R. Smith misses a shot over Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook at end of fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    With Carmelo Anthony out, the Knicks needed points — enter J.R. Smith. The veteran swingman was firing away and hitting difficult, contested shots all night long.

    Mar 8, 2013, 12:00 AM EST

    New York Knicks' Smith walks off the floor after missing a shot in their NBA basketball game against the Oklahoma City Thunder in New York

    Initially, a little of the luster was lost from the TNT matchup between the Knicks and the Thunder when it was learned that Carmelo Anthony would be forced to sit out his second straight game due to a sore right knee. J.R. Smith took it upon himself to carry the offensive load for New York…

  10. LeBron did tweak his knee Sunday, expects to play Monday

    Mar 4, 2013, 11:58 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    It was just one of those plays — LeBron James was going up for the alley-oop and the Knicks J.R. Smith was playing free safety, watching the ball and going up to swat the play away. They collided and LeBron came down awkwardly on his left leg. He instantly started to grab for his knee.…

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James reacts after he scored against the New York Knicks in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    The Knicks had beaten the Heat twice already this season, so coming into this one in New York, one would have guessed that Miami would have it dialed in from the very start. It didn’t exactly turn out that way, as the Heat trailed by as many as 16 points in the first half. But…

    Feb 28, 2013, 12:09 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors' Curry and New York Knicks' Anthony wait for a rebound in their NBA basketball game in New York

    There are nights when guys get hot, and there are nights where guys are simply on fire. Stephen Curry gave us an exciting taste of the latter on Wednesday, pouring in a career-high 54 points while absolutely shooting the lights out, knocking down 11 of his 13 attempts from three-point distance.

    Midway through the third quarter of the Knicks’ win over the Sixers on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony apparently was done wrestling with Spencer Hawes.

    Feb 22, 2013, 11:43 AM EST

    New York Knicks' head coach Mike Woodson directs his team against the Orlando Magic in the first half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    There’s a lot of frustration with the Knicks right now — they are 1-4 in their last five, the most recent loss an ugly loss at the hands of the Pacers. In those five games the Knicks have surrendered 112.9 points per 100 possession — 9.5 worse than their season average and second worst in…

    Enes Kanter cheerleaders

    Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter is kind of an eccentric dude, but because he plays in Salt Lake City, we don’t hear a whole lot about it. This guy is like the Broadway Joe of Utah with the stuff he’s doing this year. He’s taking media day pictures with four cheerleaders draped on him, and…

    Jan 28, 2013, 10:34 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    Carmelo Anthony was in one of those grooves on Sunday night. The Atlanta Hawks came to Madison Square Garden and they brought with them the aggressive Jeff Teague (we only see him every few games). When he plays their offense opens up and what you saw was the Hawks shoot 60 percent for the game.…

    Jan 27, 2013, 12:04 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Holiday shoots past the defense of the New York Knicks Chandler during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Jrue Holiday was one of five Eastern Conference players named as an All-Star reserve on Thursday who will be making their first career appearance in the NBA’s midseason exhibition.

    Jan 25, 2013, 3:48 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    We had a pretty good slate of games on Thursday night, didn’t we? The Knicks grinded out a combined 14-for-44 showing from Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith for a tough win against the Celtics, the Raptors had a little late game magic of their own against Orlando, and in the nightcap, the Suns stayed undefeated…

  23. ‘Melo vs. Garnett sideshow is dull, Knicks’ hard-fought win is not

    Jan 24, 2013, 11:56 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett played nice. In fact, in the third quarter Garnett went to the floor trying to complete an alley-oop and it was Anthony who was there to lend a hand and help him back up. There were no fireworks, no ejections, nothing. They may not be going out for a beer…

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EST

    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 EST

    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…
