    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    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. • Greg Oden’s agent Mike Conley Sr. (yes, the father of the Memphis point…

  2. Carlesimo admits benching Lopez against Grizzlies was mistake

    Feb 26, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez, P.J. Carlesimo

    Brook Lopez was in a mini-slump following All-Star Weekend in Houston. That happens. The players are pulled 50 different directions during the day and then there are parties every night. But a week after that game, on Sunday night, the Nets were locked in a low-scoring affair with the Memphis Grizzlies, a team with a…

  3. Report: Joe Johnson ruled out for Sunday’s Grizzlies game

    Brooklyn Nets' Johnson shoots three-point shot over New York Knicks' Smith and Kidd in NBA game in New York

    The Nets will look to bounce back from their loss to the Rockets on Friday when they host the Grizzlies tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. For the second straight game, however, they’ll be playing without starting shooting guard Joe Johnson: Joe Johnson (heel) is out tonight vs Memphis. — Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) February…

  4. Joe Johnson out for Nets Friday, blame plantar fasciitis

    Feb 22, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

    The Nets could certainly use Joe Johnson Friday night against a Rockets team that can put up points. But he is not going to play, Nets GM Billy King made the announcement on ESPN Radio in New York Friday (as tweeted by Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News).  Deron Williams got shots in…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Joe Johnson is the man

    P.J. Carlesimo, C.J. Watson, Joe Johnson

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the residents of Harlem say the Harlem Shake meme has nothing to do with the Harlem Shake…. Nets 113, Bucks 111 (OT): Joe Johnson is clutch — so far this season he is 8-for-9 shooting with less than 30 seconds remaining…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: No Average Joes

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Johnson smiles on the bench after leaving their NBA basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder, in Oklahoma City

    Wasn’t Monday night awful? No NBA games being played brought back some serious lockout flashbacks, but Tuesday night was just the remedy. Nine games were on the slate to welcome us back from the All-Star break, and there were some impressive performances put up. Tony Parker rattled off 30 points and 11 assists in a…

  7. Nets’ Joe Johnson hits three to send game to OT, then beats Bucks with game winner (VIDEO)

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:46 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson Nets Game winner

    Joe Johnson can have some coffee. He can close. As evidence, we will first present the three he hit to send the game to overtime against the Bucks on Tuesday night. Then in overtime, he drained the game winner as the buzzer sounded. Johnson crossed up a really good defender in Luc Richard Mbah a…

  8. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Break up the Raptors, that’s four straight wins

    Feb 14, 2013, 8:35 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Johnson and Gay defend New York Knicks' Stoudemire during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at toys you can buy that would traumatize your child…. Celtics 71, Bulls 69: Man this game was ugly. You knew it was going to be low scoring — two defensive minded teams both missing the point guard that stirs their…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: Two All-Stars and a guy who should have been

    Feb 14, 2013, 2:27 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Paul George

    I wanted to do an all All-Star edition of three stars tonight, but I couldn’t leave Josh Smith off (representing he and Al Horford, who alone almost beat the Magic)… but he should have been one. So I’m calling this the All-Star edition anyway. As always some guys are close but just missed out. Joe…

  10. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos…. Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: A Celtics team on the second night of a back-to-back where the first game went three overtimes ran into a Bobcats that doesn’t have a lot going for it but…

  11. Brooklyn Nets announce Deron Williams out next two games

    Feb 11, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    You see this a few times every season — a banged up player taking a couple games off before the All-Star Game to get an extended break and get healthy for the stretch run. To that end, the Nets have announced Deron Williams will miss the team’s two games this week — against the Pacers…

  12. Joe Johnson breaks Chris Bosh’s ankles (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2013, 10:03 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Johnson smiles on the bench after leaving their NBA basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder, in Oklahoma City

    Whenever Joe Johnson has Chris Bosh switched on him on the perimeter he should attack — that is a mismatch. Johnson is too quick off the dribble, too good a shot from the outside. But doing this to a man, that’s just cruel and unusual punishment. That is as devastating a crossover move as you…

  13. How much is Josh Smith worth? He thinks he’s a max player.

    Jan 26, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is a free agent this summer. He will be one of the biggest names out there — 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds a game, a borderline All-Star level player, a guy with the athleticism and potential to be one of the best bigs in the game. If you’re looking for a big who…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dramatic finishes all over on Monday

    Jan 22, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson celebrates with Brook Lopez after he shot three-point against New York Knicks in NBA game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what made Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia think that hat was a good choice at the inauguration…. Bulls 95, Lakers 83: Chicago is what Los Angeles is not — passionate, committed to the system, hustlers on every play and defenders. So,…

  15. Three Stars of the night: MLK Day game winners edition

    Jan 22, 2013, 1:53 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Johnson shoots three-point shot over New York Knicks' Smith and Kidd in NBA game in New York

    Some guys put up big numbers on Monday — Philly’s Evan Turner (18 points, 12 boards, 7 assists), Carmelo Anthony (29 points), Nene (24 points, 9 rebounds), DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 13 rebounds) — and maybe none better than Nicolas Batum’s triple-double (12 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds). But none of them make the cut.…

  16. Joe Johnson’s late jumper sends Nets to win over Knicks (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2013, 7:13 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson, J.R. Smith

    Joe Johnson scored 10 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, but none were bigger than this jumper with 22 seconds remaining that gave the Nets the lead for good on the way to an 88-85 win over the Knicks that tied the season series at two games apiece. Carmelo Anthony finished with 29…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Turns out, the Heat and Thunder are pretty good

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Durant shoots against Denver Nuggets defenders Randolph and Brewer in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while having to deal with all the people knocking on your door asking for their lost cell phones…. Heat 92, Warriors 75: As it has been with the Heat all season long, when they are focused and defend they destroy teams. Especially teams…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the offensive outbursts

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  19. Wizards head coach exasperated, out of answers after double-overtime loss to Nets (VIDEO)

    Jan 5, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    This isn’t exactly on the level of a Gregg Popovich postgame presser, but really, few things are. Still, it’s interesting anytime a head coach goes beyond the cliches and shows some emotion while meeting with the media after a tough loss, so we bring you an exasperated Randy Wittman trying to find some answers after…

  20. Joe Johnson hits the game-winner to sink Wizards in double overtime (VIDEO)

    Jan 5, 2013, 2:37 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Washington Wizards

    Joe Johnson only made seven shots in the Nets 115-113 double-overtime win in Washington on Friday, but his final one ensured his team would leave with the victory. The player known pejoratively as ISO-Joe worked that situation to perfection, taking his man off the dribble and creating space for an open 20-foot jumper that put…

  21. Andray Blatche returns to Washington, receives boos as expected (VIDEO)

    Jan 4, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    The most surprising thing about this video, which shows Andray Blatche checking in during the first quarter in Washington for the first time as a member of the Brooklyn Nets, is the fact that the broadcaster reminds us that Blatche played for the Wizards for seven (!) seasons. Blatche was known for whatever the opposite…

  22. 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…

    Jan 3, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Williams drives against Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while figuring out what’s in and what’s out for 2013… Nets 110, Thunder 93: Well, P.J. Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

  24. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  25. NBA’s best crossovers of 2012 (video)

    Jan 1, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I like a good dunk as much as the next guy, but if you give me my highlight loop of choice it would be crossovers. These are just so much fun. The fine folks at NBA.com have been putting together these year-end compilations, which have been fun. Well, this one wasn’t a lot of fun…
