The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite. 1.…

Harrison Barnes had more than his fair share of amazing slam dunk highlights during his rookie season with the Warriors — just check out the clip above, or this collection of the team’s best plays from last year for visual confirmation. It’s rare that we get the best in-game dunkers wanting to participate in All-Star…

Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were hacking Donkey Kong to make Pauline the hero… Spurs 105, Thunder 93: The Spurs depth was too much for the Thunder — San Antonio made its big runs when it was bench-on-bench (mostly). Part of that was that the Thunder…

HOUSTON — Only two contestants out of the field of six advanced to the final round of the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday, and Terrence Ross and Jeremy Evans were the ones who earned their way there to get a shot at this year’s title. That means we had other capable dunkers who had to…

This isn’t a dunk contest that is going to go down in history with the greats. Well, unless you’re a Raptors fan. It was up and down, plenty of misfires and missed dunks no doubt. But there were some jaw dropping moments, too. Terrence Ross won because he had a few of them. Then there…

HOUSTON — Jeremy Evans didn’t win this year’s dunk contest, but it certainly wasn’t due to a lack of creativity or effort on his part. Terrence Ross took home the trophy as the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk champion, and was definitely deserving of the honor. But Evans wins at least in terms of creativity, based…

Terrence Ross pulled out the Vince Carter Raptors throwback jersey, then did a throwback Vince Carter dunk. Then he did a not-very-far throwback dunk of Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan. Then he dunked over a kid. All the while Toronto’s own Drake was jumping around in the first row like a giddy 12-year-old boy. It all worked.…

It looked like this all night — Denver playing with energy and finishing possessions with dunks, Chicago standing around and watching those dunks. Denver routed Chicago Thursday night and had a lot of fun doing it. And they put on quite a show in the process. Here Ty Lawson shows off an impressive crossover, then…
2013 Slam Dunk Contest: Jeremy Evans will defend title against Green, Bledsoe, Ross, Faried, and James White
Feb 7, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT
Utah’s Jeremy Evans — the human pogo stick — will be back to defend his All-Star weekend Sprite Dunk Contest title. But a repeat will not be easy because the NBA has lined up some high flyers to step up to challenge him — Gerald Green of the Pacers, James White of the Knicks, Eric…

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…

LeBron James is a powerful in-game dunker. Sometimes those kinds of dunkers don’t translate well to the showy exhibition that is the NBA’s Dunk Contest All-Star weekend. Think Shannon Brown. Heck, Jazz forward Jeremy Evans told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida he could beat LeBron in the contest because we’ve never seen LeBron in…

No one has ever accused the Utah Jazz of being too trendy. Just like John Stockton defiantly ignored the whole “wearing shorts that allow circulation to the rest of your leg” thing late in his career, Utah has completely avoided the recent trend of slimming down and going small. The Jazz will start four players…

What does it say about us as fans that this kind of play between two of the league’s superstars is so routine as to make us think “that was nice, but they’ve done much better?” Anyway, here is Chris Paul‘s ally-opp to Blake Griffin in transition from Wednesday night against the Jazz. Monster jam. Yawn.…

If you’re looking for the “play of the preseason” I think this may be your winner. The human pogo stick Jeremy Evans is freakishly long and can jump out of the building, which makes him good at blocking shots and dunking. (It’s the other stuff that holds him back.) Here he gets Ronny Turiaf twice,…

The Utah Jazz have a lot of youth on the wing, but they still want to add one veteran to the mix to balance it out. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that the Jazz have interest in bringing back Josh Howard for another season (even though he is looking around and worked out for the…
