  1. NBA Power Rankings: All-Star Weekend edition

    Feb 27, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs take vacation in Portland

    Feb 22, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan Spurs

    What you missed while filling out your Oscar pool…. Trail Blazers 137, Spurs 97: Gregg Popovich decided to sacrifice the Spurs 11-game win streak on the alter of rest. He sat Tony Parker and Tim Duncan (Manu Ginobili is already out with an oblique strain). The result was kind of what you’d expect with the…

  3. Raymond Felton benched by Portland; he’s not thrilled about it

    Feb 21, 2012, 10:09 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Portland is making a change — Jamal Crawford, not Raymond Felton, will be the starting point guard for the Trail Blazers when they face off against the Spurs tonight, reports the Oregonian. So here’s your starting job, Mr. Crawford, enjoy trying to stop the hottest player in the league in Tony Parker. But the move…

  4. Tuesday And-1 links: Zach Randolph is back at practice

    Feb 14, 2012, 11:44 AM EDT

    zach-randolph-game-6

    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). Zach Randolph has been cleared by doctors for non-contact practices and is expected to return to the Grizzlies in early March. That would be huge…

  5. Tuesday And-1 links: Want to watch Gilbert Arenas workout?

    Feb 7, 2012, 11:14 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    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). Gilbert Arenas is going to conduct an open workout in Los Angeles this week so teams can come and decide for themselves if he’s got…

  6. Video: Who has the best crossover in the NBA?

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, John Lucas III

    Jamal Crawford or Derrick Rose? You might throw some others in the conversation, but those are the two guys other NBA players are talking about in this video. And if your list doesn’t have J-Crossover on it, you’re doing it wrong. But I’d lean Rose.

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Vintage Tim Duncan sighting

    Jan 24, 2012, 2:54 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets' Jack puts his head in his hands after being called for a foul during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    What you missed while getting that nail you didn’t know you shot into your head removed… Celtics 87, Magic 56: Don’t go overboard with any “the Celtics are back” hype yet, but they got a quality win in our game of the night. Spurs 104, Hornets 102: New Orleans loses a lot of games but…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Nash’s perfect game leads Suns to blowout win over road-weary Blazers

    Jan 7, 2012, 2:30 AM EDT

    nash-game-time-decision-magic

    The Portland Trail Blazers secured an emotional home win over the evil Lakers on Thursday, and afterward, the team didn’t make it to its hotel in Phoenix until 4 a.m. local time the next morning. Add those two facts together, and you get the result of Friday night’s game against the Suns: a 102-77 shellacking…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: No LeBron, no Wade, no problem

    Jan 6, 2012, 4:17 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    What you missed while wondering what a crocodile would do with a lawn mower… Heat 116, Hawks 109 (3OT): No LeBron James or Dwyane Wade for Miami, yet the Heat were gritty (a little lucky) and get an unexpected win. This game was entertaining and dramatic, much more so than we expected going in. But can…

  13. Portland’s bandwagon getting full as Lakers come to town

    Jan 5, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    portland-trail-blazers Gerald Wallace

    As you read this, the Portland Trail Blazers are the top seed in the Western Conference. Which after five whole games has all the meaning of a politician’s campaign promise, even in a 66 game season. Few people mention them as title contenders. But if you were watching the other day they beat Oklahoma City…

  14. Tracy McGrady is feeling like it’s 2003… almost

    Jan 3, 2012, 3:18 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Tracy McGrady took charge of the Miami Heat in the fourth quarter Monday night. McGrady had 13 points, five rebounds and four assists and is the reason Miami fell to the Atlanta Hawks. He controlled the flow of the game in the fourth. Yes, that McGrady. The once dominant player with the questionable knees is…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Denver makes lay-ups, beats L.A.

    Jan 2, 2012, 2:38 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while breaking your New Year’s resolutions already… Nuggets 99, Lakers 90: Best game of the night and there was a little fire to this one — second nights of a home-and-home often carry over some tension. Denver jumped out early with Kobe Bryant shooting only 1-of-10 in the first half and the…

  16. Baseline to baseline recaps: Kevin Durant is an assassin

    Dec 30, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

    What you missed while watching an octopus pick the BCS matchups…. Lakers 99, Knicks 82: We broke this down as our game of the night. Thunder 104, Mavericks 102: This was easily the best game the Mavericks have played this season. The ball movement was back, the clever veteran plays were there. Delonte West said…

  17. Blazers about to talk contract extension with Nicolas Batum

    Dec 21, 2011, 11:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Nicolas Batum is one of those players you leave the game talking about. You head into the Rose Garden in Portland thinking about LaMarcus Aldridge or Jamal Crawford, but when you leave the guy who jumps out at you is Batum. Which is why the Blazers are about to talk contract extension with the fourth-year…

  18. Tuesday morning one liners (KG is taunting Raptors again)

    Dec 20, 2011, 10:41 AM EDT

    RNPS IMAGES OF THE YEAR 2011

    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). Kevin Garnett went all Kevin Garnett and taunted a Raptor during a meaningless preseason game. Does this even shock us anymore? Jason Terry had to leave Mavericks…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks start out season on top

    Dec 19, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    Dallas players Carter, Marion, Nowitzki, Odom, Kidd, and Terry pose for photos during media day at the team's headquarters in Dallas, Texas

    Welcome to our inaugural power rankings for the 2011-12 NBA season (a regular Monday feature at PBT). These are fun if ultimately meaningless — in the NBA we have a playoff system to decide who is best (are you listening college football?). This is a preseason ranking, so remember that when you get mad about…

  20. Monday morning one liners

    Dec 19, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Richard Jefferson

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. A fantastic read at Hoopspeak.com on what the Thunder need to do to get Kevin Durant more open looks. After signing Baron Davis for the mini mid-level, the Knicks are out of the running…

  21. Blazers to formally amnesty Brandon Roy as he leaves game

    Dec 15, 2011, 7:39 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Roy is walking away from the game… which makes us sad. But he’s doing it while he can still walk, which is understandable. How Roy’s retirement is formally going down is that the Blazers will amnesty him, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo. The reason is they need to get his salary of the books…

  22. Jamal Crawford going home, to sign with Portland

    Dec 15, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The Portland Trail Blazers always had an advantage in trying to land Jamal Crawford — and not just LaMarcus Aldridge’s naked and unabashed recruitment of him on twitter. Crawford was born in Seattle and lives in the Pacific Northwest in the offseason. The Blazers were close to home. And he is headed back, according to…

  23. NBA Season Preview: Atlanta Hawks

    Dec 15, 2011, 3:30 AM EDT

    Hawks-media-2011

    Last season: 44-38, fifth seed in the East. Took out the Orlando Magic in six in the first round, before losing in six to the Chicago Bulls in the second. Head Coach: Larry Drew Key Departures: Jamal Crawford is technically still with the Hawks, but several reports have him trying to decide between Portland, the…

  24. Jamal Crawford rules out Knicks, narrows choices to Portland and Sacramento

    Dec 14, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Jamal Crawford has narrowed his free agent choice to two teams, according to multiple reports. Portland and Sacramento have emerged as the leading candidates to land Crawford’s services, after the Knicks and Pacers were reportedly also in the chase. It’s unclear if the Knicks made an official offer, but Crawford did reject one worth $10…

  25. Report: Portland emerges as third team in Howard to Nets

    Dec 14, 2011, 10:14 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    If a team were going to jump in as the facilitator in a Dwight Howard to the Nets trade, you would bet that team would be from the West. They would have motivation to keep Howard in the Eastern Conference and away from the Lakers (or Mavericks). Enter the Portland Trail Blazers. At least that…
