  1. The Extra Pass: Nets believe they’re headed in the right direction, and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:10 AM EDT

    joe johnson steve blake

    NEW YORK — The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  3. Monday And-1 Links: Craig Sager’s best suits

    Nov 18, 2013, 8:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • The 10 best/worst suits of Craig Sager. Glad somebody finally put this together.…

  4. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  5. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  7. Jeff Green hits a three at the buzzer to send Celtics to win over Heat (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green hit a fading three-pointer from the corner as time expired in Miami to give the Celtics an improbable 111-110 win over the Heat on Saturday, which was Boston’s third straight. Dwyane Wade had a chance to ice the game at the free throw line, but missed two foul shots on the previous possession…

  8. Jeff Green with the posterizing dunk over Jason Maxiell (VIDEO)

    Nov 9, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    We know. Rebuilding Celtics versus rebuilding Magic, with very few recognizable names or legitimate star power on the floor for either side. But then you see this, an aggressive posterizing dunk from Jeff Green over Jason Maxiell from Friday’s action, and you realize that the pool of individual player talent in the NBA is crazy…

  9. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  10. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  11. Ainge says Celtics in talks to extend Avery Bradley

    Oct 25, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    Amir Johnson, Avery Bradley

    Not to spoil a story in the first sentence, but this may well not come together. One month ago Celtics GM Danny Ainge said he would wait until next summer when Avery Bradley was a restricted free agent to talk about a new deal with him. Meaning he planned to let the marketplace set his…

  12. Gerald Wallace calls out Celtics’ teammates on effort, being “selfish”

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    Gerald Wallace

    It’s going to be a long season for Boston — a couple seasons ago they were up 3-2 on the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, now they are looking at how many lottery ping pong balls they can rack up. But for a professional like Gerald Wallace, what is inexcusable is a lack of…

  13. Jeff Green blocks D.J. Augustin’s shot as he hurdles him (VIDEO)

    Oct 9, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    More Jeff Green for the Celtics this season is going to mean more of this — he is wildly athletic and it leads to some dynamic plays. Like hurdling Toronto’s D.J. Augustin on the break while blocking his shot during Sunday night’s game. More Jeff Green will also mean more lines like he had in…

  14. Celtics’ Ainge doesn’t see a franchise-changing player in this draft

    Oct 3, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    I’ve taken to calling it “woeful for Wiggins” but there are a hundred different ways of phrasing the organizational tanking going on around the NBA — a number of teams are going with the “get bad to get good” strategy this year. The Sixers, Suns, Magic, Jazz and others chose this year to be a…

  15. Channing Frye on his return to Suns: ‘I never felt like I was done’

    Sep 30, 2013, 6:34 PM EDT

    Channing Frye

    PHOENIX — The big news out of Suns media day on Monday was the team making official what Channing Frye had announced personally the night before: that he has been cleared to play by a multitude of physicians, and will be back on the active roster beginning immediately. “There’s a lot of weird feelings going…

  16. Rondo could be out until December Celtics GM Ainge says

    Sep 24, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Well, the good news is Avery Bradley is healthy and ready for training camp to start. That’s particularly good because he could be playing the point for the first couple months of the season, sharing time with rookie Phil Pressey. All that because Rajon Rondo could be out until December. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was…

  17. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  18. Jordan Crawford says Celtics teammates starting to look at him as leader. Okay then.

    Sep 13, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. Well, unless they trade him, but heading into camp this is unquestionably Rondo’s team. However, if he’s not back at the start of the season (we have no timeline) then others may have to step up. There are respected veterans in that locker room such as Brandon…

  19. Doc Rivers admits Kendrick Perkins trade was a mistake

    Sep 13, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    When it went down, Celtics fans were up in arms — Boston traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City mainly for Jeff Green. Danny Ainge’s name suddenly came with a new adjective for Boston fans, and it’s one we can’t repeat here. Since then Boston has defended the trade and as Perkins’ production has slipped some…

  20. Jeff Green can still throw down dunks (VIDEO)

    Aug 20, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Last season it was just good to to see Jeff Green back out on the court. This season he is going to get asked to do a lot more for a Boston team in transition, we’ll see how that goes. Green was in Seattle for the Jamal Crawford pro-am and what did we learn? He…

  21. Kevin Durant, Jeff Green scheduled to play in Jamal Crawford’s Pro-Am league in Seattle

    Aug 9, 2013, 2:37 PM EDT

    durant green sonics

    Plenty of players participate in Pro-Am leagues during the summer, and it’s usually not necessarily newsworthy unless you happen to live in the community where the games are taking place. But Kevin Durant and Jeff Green returning to play in front of fans in Seattle is a bit more interesting. Durant and Green began their…

  22. Brad Stevens was a smart hire for Boston… if they really are rebuilding

    Jul 3, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    Brad Stevens

    I like this hire. Boston made a smart move. Brad Stevens was a coach on the rise, something a lot of people recognized around basketball. He used the principles of advanced statistics and a focus on defense to win at least 22 games a year at Butler and become one of the hottest coaches in…

  23. Celtics stuck in limbo without Clippers trade

    Jun 18, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    If the Celtics-Clippers trade is indeed dead – and like Kurt, I have my doubts – the offseason doesn’t get any easier for the Celtics. Boston is obviously ready to move on from Kevin Garnett and Doc Rivers, at least if it nets a certain combination of DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe and first-round picks and…

  24. Report: Celtics tried to land Jefferson or Millsap at trade deadline

    May 31, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson

    There has been buzz that Utah Jazz free agent Paul Millsap is the top off-season target of Danny Ainge and the Celtics. They certainly need help along the front line and Millsap would fit in that way. It’s just that the money thing makes it far more complex. But apparently Ainge was trying to land…

  25. Celtics ‘likely’ to buy out Paul Pierce? Reports conflict

    May 28, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    The Celtics are at a crossroads. Again. For the first time since grouping Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, Boston didn’t win a playoff series. So, as has become annual tradition, the Celtics are considering tearing down their team and rebuilding. Perhaps, it’s finally time. Allen is already in Miami. Garnett might retire. Rajon…
