    Mar 2, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    In case you needed an additional reminder of how awesome LeBron James is, here’s a little something to put what we’re seeing from him this season into historical context. From Marc Stein of ESPN.com: The final tally for LeBron’s ridiculously accurate shooting in the month of February was 139 makes in 217 attempts from the…

  2. Clippers want Lamar Odom to be more of a scorer

    Feb 12, 2013, 12:14 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Lamar Odom has always been a maddening puzzle for fans of the teams he’s played for over the years to try and figure out. He seemingly has all the tools to be a dominant player on both ends of the floor, yet has only shows it in flashes throughout his NBA career that is now…

  4. Clippers bench, Chris Paul too much for Carmelo Anthony alone in L.A. win

    Feb 10, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Carmelo Anthony tried — he took over the game in the third quarter, put up 42 points for the game and lifted the Knicks to the lead. But the Clippers took control of the game again when their bench returned to start the fourth — Los Angeles got 48 points from their bench on the…

    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.

  6. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin out again Wednesday vs. Magic

    Feb 6, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have struggled of late going 2-6 in their eight games without Chris Paul in the lineup. They are 0-1 when Blake Griffin is out as well. We’ll see what happens in CP3s ninth game out Wednesday, although it’s against a team even more banged up — Orlando. Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are…

  8. Jamal Crawford broke his nose, will be a game-time decision Sunday against Celtics

    Feb 2, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The Clippers are already struggling to put together wins with Chris Paul missing time due to a bruised knee, and now they’re facing the possibility of playing without their highest-powered scoring option off the bench. Jamal Crawford broke his nose in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ loss in Toronto on Friday, reports Brad Turner…

  9. PBT Podcast: Celtics, Clippers, Suns, Lakers, All-Star reserves, and a chat with Chauncey Billups

    Jan 25, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to discuss the Thursday night TNT matchups, where the Knicks took care of the Celtics, and the Suns surprised a Clippers team playing without Chris Paul. We wonder what the issues are with Boston’s offense, and whether or not they have the assets…

  10. Suns move to 2-0 under new head coach with win over Clippers

    Jan 25, 2013, 3:50 AM EDT

    Lindsey Hunter, Goran Dragic

    PHOENIX — The Suns said the team needed a “jolt” when it parted ways with Alvin Gentry last week, and replaced him with Lindsey Hunter as the interim head coach for (at least) the rest of this season. Hunter said from day one his first priority would be defense, and he’s been a man of…

  11. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

  12. 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,…

  13. 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…

  14. Kevin Durant delivers daggers as the Thunder roll over the Clippers

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:32 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    In a big road test against the Los Angeles Clippers for Western Conference supremacy, Kevin Durant was unproductive and almost non-existent to start the game. Those aren’t words you typically use to describe Durant at any point, but it was inexplicably true. The league’s leading scorer was quiet throughout the first quarter, scoring only one…

  15. Clippers send promotional material to coaches to try to get Jamal Crawford voted in as an All-Star

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Bosh

    The All-Star reserves will be announced this Thursday, and with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both already in as members of the Western Conference starting lineup, there isn’t a great possibility that another player from the Clippers will make it as the team’s third representative. But that isn’t stopping the Clippers organization from trying. With…

  16. Ugly gets uglier as the Clippers defeat the injury-riddled Timberwovles

    Jan 18, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    It was easy to be excited for this one going in. Ricky Rubio is always must see TV, and Eric Bledsoe is capable of providing some serious fireworks. Pit the two against each other, throw in a few Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan jams, and you’ve got yourself a game, right? Well, not exactly. Bledsoe…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the offensive outbursts

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  19. Magic snap Clippers’ 13-game home winning streak

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Grant Hill, Josh McRoberts

    The Orlando Magic are just 13-23 on the season, but they have some surprising signature wins that give the fan base hope as the team rebuilds without a superstar on the roster, and with a first-year head coach running the show. Saturday afternoon’s come-from-behind 104-101 win over a Clippers team that held a share of…

  20. The Extra Pass: The All-Value Team

    Jan 11, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

  21. J.R. Smith believes an All-Star spot is within reach

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    J.R. Smith has been lauded for his play in New York this season, coming off the bench to provide a solid scoring punch at 16.6 points per game, while giving the team an active defensive presence on the perimeter. Smith’s name, along with that of the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford, has been widely mentioned when discussing…

  22. Lakers vs. Clippers: Not a battle for soul of L.A., but a real battle

    Jan 4, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant brushes past Los Angeles Clippers' Paul during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    The soul of Los Angeles is not at stake on Friday night when the Clippers “host” the Lakers at Staples Center. First off, Los Angeles sold its soul for year-around 70 degree weather  long ago. Second, Los Angeles is a Lakers town. Trust me, I live there, and while Clippers fans are no longer afraid to…

  23. Report: Despite plenty of interest, Clippers not likely to trade Bledsoe at deadline

    Jan 4, 2013, 5:49 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Clippers

    Eric Bledsoe is in a funk on the court. And it’s hard to blame him — the Clippers reserve guard would start for half the teams in the league (at least) but he is buried behind Chris Paul among the starters then off the bench Jamal Crawford is the primary scorer and ball handler. Bledsoe…

  24. No team has a drop off like Portland when Lillard, Aldridge sit

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:40 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Pablo Prigioni

    The first thing you should know about the +/- stat is that is says as much about the person who replaces a player as it does the player himself. Which makes sense when you look at a fantastic bit of work by NBA.com’s John Schuhmann, a list of the NBA’s biggest difference makers — a…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nets, Warriors get statement wins

    Jan 3, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Williams drives against Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…
