  1. Hawks head coach Larry Drew says team ‘took a step back’ after loss to Suns

    Mar 2, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Larry Drew, Josh Smith, Kyle Korver

    PHOENIX — Atlanta Hawks head coach Larry Drew was at a loss as to why his team, which had won four straight and six of its last seven, played so poorly against the Suns and lost 92-87 on Friday in Phoenix. He needed only to take a walk through his postgame locker room to find…

  2. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Every game from the most entertaining night of NBA season

    Feb 28, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Felton comes down on Golden State Warriors' Curry after trying to block his shot in their NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the rest of the legendary “pardon me, would you have any Grey Poupon?” commercial…. Knicks 109, Warriors 105: Stephen Curry was the story… except for the part where his team didn’t win the game. That’s not on him — 54 points…

  3. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  4. Suns’ O’Neal takes to twitter to deny argument with GM

    Jan 22, 2013, 10:40 PM EDT

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Never happened. What are you talking about. I’ll be up front and say I am not buying what he’s selling, but  Suns big man Jermaine O’Neal took to twitter to deny a report that he got in a loud argument general manager Lance Blanks not far outside the Suns locker room People should be ashamed…

  5. The Extra Pass: The All-Value Team

    Jan 11, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we’ll put together a squad featuring some of the league’s most valuable contracts.  Signing players to any substantial contract during the offseason free agency period is like tap dancing through a…

  6. O.J. Mayo helps Mavericks bounce back to hand Suns fifth straight loss

    Dec 7, 2012, 2:42 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — Dallas barely showed up for their game against the Clippers on Wednesday, falling behind by double-digits early and then never really competing while the second half turned into nothing more than extended garbage time. Things began similarly in Phoenix on Thursday, with the Suns getting out to an 11-1 lead in the game’s…

  7. Blazers coach Stotts calls out Meyers Leonard

    Nov 22, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

    Meyers Leonard

    The Suns had no problem with the Blazers on Wednesday, and Portland’s front line defense, or lack thereof, was the main reason why. Marcin Gortat and Jermaine O’Neal combined for 39 points on 18-of-23 shooting, and a lot of those buckets came at the expense of Meyers Leonard. Leonard is a rookie who now has…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Nov 22, 2012, 5:22 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

  9. Gentry says changes coming to Suns starting lineup

    Nov 18, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    The fact that the Suns lost to the Miami Heat on Saturday, even with Dwyane Wade out due to injury and LeBron James playing through illness, wasn’t by itself cause for concern. But the way the team started, flat once again and failing to score in the game’s first 4:14 on the way to a…

  10. NBA season preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Last Season: We could talk about the slow start, the impressive run in the season’s second half, or the eventual finish two games outside of the playoff picture. But all anyone in Phoenix will ultimately remember about the 2011-12 campaign is that it was the last time they would witness the on-court brilliance of Steve…

  11. Luis Scola says amnesty process in Houston wasn’t easy

    Oct 2, 2012, 11:49 AM EDT

    scola-suns

    Luis Scola was one of many new players sporting a Suns jersey at the team’s media day on Monday, and while he’s of course happy to be there just like other fresh faces Michael Beasley, Jermaine O’Neal, and Goran Dragic, his journey to Phoenix — or, more to the point, his exit from Houston —…

  12. Boston to add Sean Williams for playoffs

    Apr 19, 2012, 6:34 PM EDT

    Sean Williams

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: With Jermaine O’Neal lost to season-ending wrist surgery, Boston decided to bring in Sean Williams as an extra big. The 25-year-old Williams is a great athlete and talented shot blocker, but his personal issues have kept him from living up to his considerable potential so far. Williams was dismissed from the…

  13. Jermaine O’Neal to undergo season-ending wrist surgery

    Mar 19, 2012, 5:35 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    From the Boston Herald’s Steve Bulpett: Jermaine O’Neal will have season-ending surgery on his left wrist. The 33-year old Boston Celtics center was once considered one of the game’s best big men, but O’Neal, who was drafted out of high school, aged quickly, and has not been a truly effective center for some time, although…

  15. The bizarre dichotomy of the NBA All-Star Game

    Feb 26, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Sunday night, 24 players will amble into the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. Many of them will be hungover, sleep-deprived, or both from a night of partying at all the hot spots during the biggest nightlife year for the NBA universe. They will casually go through the media requirements, slowly get dressed, do some casual…

  16. Celtics outlast Bulls without Rose, mostly because Rondo is awesome

    Feb 12, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo had 32 points, 15 assists, and 10 rebounds. You’re pretty much not going to beat the Celtics without  a Derrick-Rose when that happens, and the Bulls did not Sunday, as they lost 95-91 in Boston. Was it a good win? Yes and no. The Celtics lead throughout, and only really allowed two significant…

  17. Celtics focus on improvement, believe wins will follow

    Jan 17, 2012, 1:08 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Rivers argues with a call against the Dallas Mavericks during their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Focus on the next step and you will arrive at your destination. No, it’s not one of Phil Jackson’s coaching mantras, it’s what the Celtics are doing in the wake of a five-game losing streak and a 4-8 record that has them looking up at the playoffs right now. Focus on getting better and the…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living upsets

    Jan 3, 2012, 6:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward LeBron James walks during a time out in the closing minutes of his team's loss to the Atlanta Hawks in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while watching Oregon and Wisconsin score another touchdown…. Hawks 100, Heat 92: Miami was zoned out again. The Hawks went to a zone defense a lot starting in the second quarter and it stalled out the Heat, who shot just 37 percent in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Tracy McGrady alone had 13…

  20. NBA Season Preview: Boston Celtics

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:50 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Last season: 56-26 and a tough out by the hand of LeBron James. Head Coach: The perennially fantastic Doc Rivers. He may not have the mystique of Gregg Popovich or the cult appeal of Stan Van Gundy, but Rivers consistently does a great job of balancing the personalities on Boston’s roster while drawing up highly…

  21. Magic trade Brandon Bass for Glen Davis, but what exactly do they hope to gain?

    Dec 9, 2011, 11:33 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic

    Amid a flurry of activity across the league, the Boston Celtics and Orlando Magic quietly agreed to swap two somewhat frustrating bigs. Brandon Bass, the athletic power forward who gave Stan Van Gundy more than a few gray hairs during his stint with the Magic, is Boston-bound in exchange for a signed-and-traded Glen Davis. It…

  22. Jermaine O’Neal says he likely will retire after next season

    Sep 14, 2011, 10:55 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Two years ago, Boston had a role-playing big man retire in Rasheed Wallace. Last season it was Shaquille O’Neal who retired from the Celtics. Next up, Jermaine O’Neal. At least that’s the plan the 15-year veteran told A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com while in Las Vegas for the Impact Competitive Training Series (where O’Neal is…

  23. Ainge: Perkins trade not the reason team lost

    May 16, 2011, 12:03 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    The moment the trade of Kendrick Perkins went through, you knew this is how it would go down — when the Celtics fell out of the playoffs the trade was going to be blamed. Danny Ainge was going to get blamed. Throw in an early second round exit and you have Ainge getting a lot…

  24. One way or another, expect Celtics roster shakeups

    May 13, 2011, 11:48 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics Delonte West, Paul Pierce and Jeff Green walk off the court at the end of their overtime loss to the Miami Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Boston

    It looks like Boston is going to make one more run at it — Doc Rivers is coming back, Ray Allen will pick up the option on his contract, Rajon Rondo will get healthy and whenever next season starts the Celtics will get the band back together. But expect changes around them. And maybe even…

  25. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    This was the dream. For all the criticism, the spontaneous hatred from people he never met in cities he’d never lived, for the questions and the scrutiny, this was what he had hoped for. When LeBron James decided to abandon the franchise that drafted him and pursue a team that didn’t think Wally Sczcerbiak/Ben Wallace/Mo…
