    Feb 28, 2014, 3:05 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reminding yourself not to make love to a pizza…. Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards. That is why Washington needed Marcin Gorat. It may have taken John Wall a while to realize it — there were some rough patches at the start — but Gortat has…

    Feb 20, 2014, 5:41 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee hasn’t played since the sixth game of the NBA season due to a stress fracture in his left leg and it has showed on the defensive end for Denver — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 45.2 points a game in the paint against them, 26th…

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is stepping up his game.

  16. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

    Feb 6, 2014, 12:38 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    The Denver Nuggets have struggled up front this season — opposing centers are shooting 50.6 percent against the Nuggets and teams are averaging 44.9 points a game in the paint against them, 25th in the NBA.

The Philippines were…

    Jan 24, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Denver is not exactly a good defensive team, they miss JaVale McGee or anyone who might protect the rim. Damian Lillard took advantage of that Thursday night with a monster dunk. Denver’s players had a front row seat for what was the dunk of the night. Portland went on to win 110-105.

  20. Andre Drummond runs back on offense with Pistons still on defense

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:00 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    If JaVale McGee gets a hard time for this: Andre Drummond deserves a little chastising for this. (hat tip: commenter ProBasketballPundit for the video) Amar’e Stoudemire squares up shoots a jumper with 9:58 left in the second quarter of Tuesday’s Pistons-Knicks game. Drummond runs out to contest it. Then, Drummond backs away as the shot is…

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

    Denver Nuggets head coach George Karl watches his team play against the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 6 of their NBA Western Conference basketball playoffs in Denver

    Denver looked like a team that could do a lot of damage in the playoffs last season – they won 57 games, the players bought into the style George Karl was preaching, and they were a disruptive if not elite defense. Then Danilo Gallinari went down and they were never the same. On either end…

  23. DeAndre Jordan’s monster rejection of Russell Westbrook (VIDEO)

    Nov 22, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There is no more athletic center in the NBA than DeAndre Jordan (maybe JaVale McGee, it’s close). He’s fast and leaps out of the building. Which why he has some spectacular blocks, like this one on Russell Westbrook Thursday night. Best part of this? Jordan didn’t swat it into the third row, rather it stayed…
