  1. Uncle Jeff throws down on the Suns, Uncle Drew beats the buzzer against Atlanta (VIDEO)

    Jan 9, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Being an uncle is pretty cool. You get to buy your nieces and nephews annoyingly loud toys to passive-aggressively torture your brother or sister. You get to give the kids lots of candy and ice cream and it automatically makes you cool. It’s a pretty easy gig. Dunking on a 7-footer in the NBA, or beating…

  2. Report: Grizzlies testing waters for potential Rudy Gay trade

    Jan 4, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    Memphis is one of those “maybe if everything goes right” contenders. They are not as talented as Oklahoma City or the Los Angeles Clippers, but they have a dominating front line with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. In the last couple weeks their elite defense has taken a step back, their already unimpressive offense has…

  3. Top 10 NBA dunks of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    WIth 2012 officially in the books, it’s time to look back on the top 10 dunks of the past year. And just as we all expected, Byron Mullens makes the list and kicks things off at number 10. Yeah, I don’t know either. But his flying jam down the lane after getting his own rebound…

  4. Report: Celtics, Mavericks among four teams trying to work Cousins trade

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Know this — the scenario about to be laid out tells you what DeMarcus Cousins and his people are thinking and hoping for. What it does not do is tell you the reality of the situation. Not in the least. The reality here is a complex dynamic that starts with Cousins firing his long-time agent…

  5. Celtics show promise in Christmas win. Nets… it wasn’t pretty.

    Dec 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Jared Sullinger, Andray Blatche

    Boston should be better than a .500 team, which is how they came into Christmas Day. We keep expecting them to have a nice easy win, a jumpstart to start finding their groove. They need to find a team that would roll over and pretty much die for them. Enter the Nets on Christmas. How…

  6. Ainge: “There’s just no excuse for the way we’re playing”

    Dec 21, 2012, 4:17 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    We told you earlier this week that Celtics decision maker Danny Ainge is preaching patience — he is not looking at a roster shakeup. Yet. But don’t confuse that with being happy. Like every Celtics fan right now, he is frustrated with the inconsistent play from a veteran team (no matter what Doc Rivers wants…

  7. As Celtics offense falls off map they search for an identity

    Dec 19, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It’s been this bad — in the last 10 games the Celtics offense has averaged 96.9 points per 100 possessions (via NBA.com’s own stats), which over the course of the season would be 29th in the NBA. Barely better than what’s left of the Wizards. At the other end, Boston’s defense has been inconsistent (it…

  8. Rivers says Celtics not a veteran team like you think they are

    Dec 18, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    As we debated whether or not the Celtics should bring back the band for one more run or break it up and start to rebuild, one question we never discussed was “are the Celtics a veteran team?” Because it seems obvious. But Celtics coach Doc Rivers doesn’t see it that way. Rivers told CSNNE.com these…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pierce, Rondo lead Celtics to win

    Dec 13, 2012, 6:57 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching the Sandy relief concert and thinking the Who looked really old… Celtics 117, Mavericks 115 (2OT): This game was fun. It entertained. Oh, no it wasn’t pretty at all — Dallas had 27 turnovers — but it had its…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Heat, Thunder on top, it feels like 2011

    Dec 3, 2012, 3:11 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates win over Atlanta Hawks with Bosh and Allen during their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    It’s early in the season, very early, but there are moments it feels line the NBA finals come June could be a rematch of last year — Miami vs. Oklahoma City. And that really shouldn’t be a surprise. Right now those two teams are on top of the PBT power rankings. 1. Heat (12-3, last…

  11. Doc Rivers: “We’re a soft team; we have no toughness”

    Nov 29, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Wednesday night after another Celtics loss, Doc Rivers was relaying a lesson most of us learned somewhere along the way: It’s not the tough guys that get in fights. The Celtics have lost three of their last five, were pushed around by the Nets and more importantly are a bottom 10 defensive team in the…

  12. Kendrick Perkins wants to guard Rajon Rondo when Thunder face the Celtics

    Nov 23, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Kendrick Perkins

    Plenty of story lines are in play when the Thunder face the Celtics, as they will Friday night in Boston, due to the 2010 deal between the two teams that saw Kendrick Perkins and Jeff Green trade places. Both players were thought at the time to be untouchable members of each team’s core, with Perkins…

  13. Jeff Green finally to face former team… and he yawns

    Nov 23, 2012, 10:42 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Last January, when Kendrick Perkins faced the Celtics for the first time since they traded him away, Jeff Green was home. Recovering from heart surgery, which was a pretty good excuse to skip the game. But that changes Friday when Green takes on the team that moved him in a still-controversial 2010 deadline deal when…

  14. Al Jefferson says he would love to return, play in Boston

    Nov 15, 2012, 11:08 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Chris Wilcox, Al Jefferson

    Al Jefferson is going to be a sought-after free agent this summer — big men who can get you 15 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, can pass and bring a good work ethic to the locker room are not that easy to find. Predicting where he will play next season is impossible — if…

  15. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics bench gets them a win

    Nov 15, 2012, 6:34 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thinking at least one drug dealer really cares…. Grizzlies 107, Thunder 97: We told you last week in the power rankings Memphis was for real. Believe us now? Brett Pollakoff broke down this game for us. Clippers 107, Heat 100:…

  16. Video: Jeff Green dunks all over Al Jefferson

    Nov 14, 2012, 9:59 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    This is just a monster posterization from the Celtics Jeff Green, as he drives along the baseline and explodes to go up and over Utah’s Al Jefferson for the one-handed slam. It didn’t even seem like Green would quite be able to get this to go down when he took off just outside the restricted…

  17. Garnett says Jeff Green needs to be more of an a******

    Nov 12, 2012, 12:51 PM EDT

    Chris Copeland, Jeff Green

    Kevin Garnett plays angry. With the attitude of a 1970s hockey enforcer. Jeff Green is fun loving. He’s also slumping to start the season — he is scoring 7.8 points per game on 40.5 percent shooting, both would be career lows if he kept it up. There was hope he would be a powerful sixth…

  18. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  19. Video: LeBron’s monster dunk (with Ray Allen’s silent assist)

    Oct 31, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James reacts after scoring on a dunk as Boston Celtics defenders look on during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Enjoy that dunk for its power. The dunk is full of so many of LeBron James‘ gifts — handles, speed, strength that all come together in an almost unfair package. It is one of the big highlights from the Heat’s opening night win over Boston. But watch that dunk again and see that Ray Allen…

  20. PBT Power Rankings: Heat start season on top, Bobcats in cellar

    Oct 29, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh,Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    It’s that time of year — the PBT’s NBA Power Rankings are back. Power Rankings before a single game is played are admittedly a bit silly, but then again the NBA has playoffs to determine which team is best so really all power rankings are silly and just for the entertainment value. It would take…

  21. Four teams that could head off a Lakers vs. Heat NBA final

    Oct 29, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    It’s the consensus of prognosticators (and me as well) — the NBA finals will be the Miami Heat vs. Los Angeles Lakers. Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James. You can already sense David Stern drooling like a Pavlovian dog thinking about the television ratings. What teams could destroy David Stern’s dream? There are four. While we…

  22. Oklahoma City’s big mistake was Perkins trade, extension

    Oct 28, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins, James Harden

    We all have at least a little bit of stubbornness in us. Not asking for directions? A common mistake rooted in pride. Going down a random, unmarked dirt road for five miles after not asking for directions? A little more foolish. Ending up out of gas in the middle of a field hoping the hills…

  23. Seven players who need to answer doubters, have big years

    Oct 24, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    John Wall

    It’s time gentlemen. Step up or be swept to the side. There are a lot of players in the NBA who need to answer questions we have about them, but maybe none more than the seven below. These are players who either need to show how good they are to get paid next summer; or…

  24. Who are the key role players on contending teams?

    Oct 23, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Ray Allen

    In the NBA, you win with star players (except if you’re the 2004 Pistons, the exception to every championship rule). They’re the guys you lean on in the closing minutes of tight games. The guys that can affect a game with their sheer talent and turn what looks to be a sure loss into a…

  25. Video: Jeff Green is still athletic, and is developing that Celtics attitude

    Oct 21, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    This is not bad for a guy who’s coming back from heart surgery. The block is exceptional, and nasty. But the attitude that comes with it is quintessential Celtics. Green seems to be embracing this team’s attitude. Gone is the doe-eyed youngster who seemed intimidated by the Celtics’ veterans two-years ago, replaced with a man…
