    Jerebko_Jonas

    This isn’t exactly a highlight featuring the game’s biggest stars or one of its glamor franchises, but it was a pretty basketball play nonetheless. Detroit’s Will Bynum uses the screen and then goes between two defenders to create some space. He then finds Jonas Jerebko with a nifty behind-the-back pass, and Jerebko puts the ball…

  4. Maurice Cheeks intimates Charlie Villanueva is out of shape

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:36 PM EST

    Charlie Villanueva

    Charlie Villanueva’s last good season came in 2008-09. He’s due for another. Villanueva hasn’t come close to the 16.2 points and 6.7 rebounds per game he averaged five years ago, but the upcoming season brings a potentially key similarity to 2008-09: it’s a contract year. After his breakout season with the Bucks, Villanueva got a…

  5. Heat say Beasley’s injury wasn’t caused by the punches he landed to his own head

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:01 AM EST

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley was caught on video punching himself in the head a couple of times after a missed shot during the Heat’s preseason win over the Pistons on Thursday, and he received treatment from team trainers following the game to reduce swelling above his eye. Putting two and two together, it was originally believed that…

  6. Pistons seemingly narrow starting shooting guard options to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    Oct 7, 2013, 6:40 PM EST

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rodney Stuckey

    The Pistons have essentially four starters locked: Brandon Jennings at point guard, Josh Smith at small forward, Greg Monroe at power forward and Andre Drummond at center. That leaves shooting guard, where there seemed to be several contenders. Chauncey Billups Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Kyle Singler Rodney Stuckey Now, halve that list, Detroit coach Maurice Cheeks indicates.…

  7. Report: Pistons to sign Italian guard Gigi Datome

    Jul 9, 2013, 1:14 PM EST

    Luigi “Gigi” Datome

    With a front line of Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe and Josh Smith, the Pistons need guys to space the floor and knock down jump shots. No, not you Josh Smith, you stay near the basket, they need to get other guys to be shooters. Enter Italian forward Luigi “Gigi” Datome. The 6’9” forward who was…

  8. Jose Calderon finds Jonas Jerebko with the two-handed bounce pass through traffic (VIDEO)

    Mar 23, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Mario Chalmers, Jose Calderon

    This was a pretty great pass from Jose Calderon to Jonas Jerebko, which took place during the portion of the Pistons’ game against the Heat on Friday where Detroit still had a fighting chance. Two-handed bounce pass, through trafic, to a cutting Jerebko who finished with the reverse jam. That’s enough for me to make…

  9. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Miami wants to know if you have any other challengers

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

    Feb 20, 2013, 8:07 AM EST

    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….

  12. Kobe finds Earl Clark for the half-court alley-oop against Pistons (VIDEO)

    Feb 3, 2013, 9:36 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    There’s something about the Lakers with 0.4 seconds on the clock. One of the team’s most famous postseason shots ever came with that amount of time remaining, as Derek Fisher won Game 5 of the 2004 Western Conference semi-finals. This one doesn’t mean nearly as much, but it was a spectacular play nonetheless. Kobe Bryant…

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  17. Thomas Robinson says all the right things after receiving two-game suspension

    Nov 8, 2012, 8:26 PM EST

    Thomas Robinson

    The elbow from Kings’ rookie Thomas Robinson on Wednesday — you remember, the one that connected with the throat of Jonas Jerebko and earned Robinson a well-deserved two-game suspension — was brutal and unnecessary, and has no place at all in a basketball game played at the professional level. Thankfully, after receiving his punishment for…

  18. Kings’ Robinson suspended two games for elbow to neck of Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 5:42 PM EST

    Kim English, Jonas Jerebko

    We told you Wednesday night when it happened a suspension was very possible for Kings rookie Thomas Robinson, and the league has come down pretty hard on the rookie. Robinson has been suspended two games (without pay) for throwing an elbow to the neck of Jonas Jerebko of the Detroit Pistons, the league announced Thursday. Robinson was…

  19. Kings’ Robinson ejected after nasty elbow to Pistons’ Jerebko

    Nov 8, 2012, 1:25 AM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Indiana Pacers

    Thomas Robinson, you’re a rookie so let me help you out here — the check for that fine that is coming can be made out just to the NBA. And there is certainly at least a fine coming — and likely a suspension — for Robinson following his uncalled for and nasty elbow to the…

  21. Piston’s Jerebko tweaks ankle playing for Sweden; will be fine

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:43 PM EST

    Jerebko_Jonas

    If you listened to every general manager and owner interviewed after the Olympics about how their star players did, the quotes pretty much all went “it’s great that they won and it’s even better that they didn’t get injured.” Well, the Clippers didn’t say that, what with Blake Griffin (knee) and Chris Paul (thumb) needing…

  22. Detroit second rounder Kyle Singler content with decision to stay overseas

    Jan 28, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Kyle Singler, Joe Dumars

    It’s rare for a player selected in the second round of the NBA to have much immediate career affirmation. After all, many second rounders never even make the final cut of an NBA roster, and those that do typically warm the bench and play out unguaranteed contracts as practice filler. Duke forward Kyle Singler appears…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…
