  1. The Extra Pass: The best dunks of 2013; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    If the end of a year serves as a time for reflection and the remembrance of lessons learned, then let the video below serve as one last reminder for the small guards of the league. If LeBron James is coming at you on a break, move. If DeAndre Jordan is flying down the lane towards…

  2. Monday night NBA grades: Shawn Marion jumps in hot tub time machine

    Dec 31, 2013, 2:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while getting sucked into a replay of Shawshank Redemption… Shawn Marion, Dallas Mavericks. Apparently pregame Marion hopped in the Hot Tub Time Machine and the 2003 version of himself showed up for this one — 32 points on 14-of-19 shooting, plus he pulled down six…

  3. Damian Lillard, Tyreke Evans trade clutch shots at end of Blazers’ loss to Pelicans (VIDEO)

    Dec 30, 2013, 11:28 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Los Angeles Lakers

    Wild finish to Monday’s game between the Blazers and the Pelicans. New Orleans had itself in position to win thanks to the play of Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis, who both made several key plays all night long, including in the game’s final period. But it was Tyreke Evans who drained the game-winner, a 15-footer…

  4. Cheeks says he needs Pistons’ Jennings to step up on defense. Good luck with that.

    Dec 12, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons vs Miami Heat

    It’s not that Brandon Jennings can’t play defense. He can. If you remember Jennings from the first couple seasons he was a solid defender on the perimeter. But that has changed over the years — he doesn’t seem to care about that end of the floor now, save for gambling for steals. He shows flashes,…

  5. The Extra Pass: A Google goggle revolution dream, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  6. Pelicans, Bulls play 3OT thriller (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 11:58 AM EDT

    Bulls vs. Pelicans

    Maybe  you were focused on watching the Seahawks mop the floor with the Saints. Or you were watching the Trail Blazers quality come-from-behind win over the Pacers. Or you just really want to know how somebody met your mother. Whatever else you were doing Monday night, if you missed the Pelicans’ 3OT win over the…

  7. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  8. Jrue Holiday with the driving game winner in 3OT (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 1:18 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Chicago Bulls

    Chicago and New Orleans played one of the more epic matches of the season on Monday night — it wasn’t always pretty, but it was epic. And long. Triple-overtime long. There was no Derrick Rose, no Anthony Davis, yet still some good offense from both sides led by Luol Deng (37 points) and Ryan Anderson…

  9. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

  10. Pelicans “big five” rotation an offensive force… and a defensive mess

    Nov 30, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    When people were excited to watch the Pelicans this season — I had them as my league pass team — it was with this rotation in mind: Jrue Holiday at the point, Eric Gordon at the two, Tyreke Evans at the three, with Ryan Anderson as a stretch four and Anthony Davis as their best…

  11. The Extra Pass: Gumbo and The Brow, and Tuesday night’s recap

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The New Orleans Pelicans roster was assembled with all the care of an inebriated person making gumbo. Three ball-dominant guards in addition to the ball-dominant guard we just drafted? Sure, that will work. A stretch 4 and a stretch 5? Toss ‘em in. The individual pieces in New Orleans are talented, to be certain, but…

  12. Tuesday night NBA Grades: John Wall has found his groove

    Nov 27, 2013, 2:37 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Washington Wizards

    Here’s a quick swing through the NBA for a Tuesday night, or you missed while seeing how far you could launch a pumpkin…  John Wall, Washington Wizards. No Bradley Beal so they need big games from him and they got it Tuesday in a win over a Lakers team that had been playing good defense…

  13. Monday And-1 Links: Craig Sager’s best suits

    Nov 18, 2013, 8:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    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. • The 10 best/worst suits of Craig Sager. Glad somebody finally put this together.…

  14. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  15. Michael Carter-Williams’ family prepared him for this moment

    Nov 6, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    He’s the guy everybody around the NBA wants to talk about. When Michael Carter-Williams was selected No. 11 by the Philadelphia 76ers this rapid success wasn’t expected. It was thought he could develop into the point guard of the future there in a few years (they had just traded away Jrue Holiday). He was tall,…

  16. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  17. Evan Turner says ‘Hinkie is not my GM’ after failing to receive a contract extension from Sixers

    Nov 2, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    Evan Turner is one of three players remaining on the rebuilding Sixers roster who are talented enough to have some trade value on the open market. Along with Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young, it’s even likely that if an offer of young assets or future draft picks should come along, one or all three players…

  18. Anthony Davis talks Pelican chemistry, his game and NBA 2K14

    Oct 31, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    While you were looking at Dwight Howard or Derrick Rose this preseason, the New Orleans Pelicans put together a nice little 7-1 record. Then on opening night the Pelicans had a 16-point second half lead against the contending Pacers, a lead the more experienced Pacers were able to make evaporate behind some strong play from…

  19. The Extra Pass Wednesday Roundup: Talking tanking (or not) in Phoenix

    Oct 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

          PHOENIX — After the Suns traded their projected starting center in Marcin Gortat to the Wizards in exchange for an injured player who might not play this season and a future first round draft pick, and did so less than a week before the start of the regular season, it doesn’t exactly…

  20. Jrue Holiday welcomes Pelicans fans on behalf of the Sixers (VIDEO)

    Oct 30, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    Jrue Holiday played his first four NBA seasons in Philadelphia, before being traded to the Pelicans this summer. We point this out because maybe, just maybe, he wasn’t necessarily the best choice to address the hometown fans of his new team before the season opener tipped off in New Orleans. [via Ball Don't Lie]  

  21. Pelicans’ stretch four Ryan Anderson fractures toe, out 1-3 weeks

    Oct 30, 2013, 7:35 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    Ryan Anderson is the New Orleans stretch four that they wanted to come in off the bench, knock down shots, pull a defending big out of the paint and give guys like Anthony Davis and Greg Stiemsma room to operate. Except he will not do that for the next few weeks — Anderson is out…

  22. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New Orleans Pelicans

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Last season: New Orleans final season as the Hornets wasn’t pretty. Eric Gordon was out much of the year, Anthony Davis showed promise but looked like a rookie at times, Austin Rivers looked like a mistake, they blew a 25-point lead to the Lakers, and they ended the season with 27 wins without even a…

  23. PBT Roundtable: Who is your League Pass team this season?

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Who is going to be your League Pass team this season (the team outside the brightest spotlights that you keep finding yourself drawn to when there are…

  24. Coach says Sixers’ Nerlens Noel likely out for season

    Oct 21, 2013, 7:22 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    This shouldn’t be a shock, it’s rather a logical extension of the 76ers long-term plans and their rather painful experience with Andrew Bynum last year. But it still is a little jarring to hear it. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said Monday before the 76ers preseason game that Nerlens Noel likely will miss the entire season,…

  25. Thunder’s Thabeet suspended one game for head butt of Greg Stiemsma

    Oct 21, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

    Hasheem Thabeet

    Last time I checked the NBA rulebook, head butting an opposing player was still illegal. Which is why Oklahoma City center Hasheem Thabeet got in trouble with the league — he has been suspended the first game of the regular season for head butting New Orleans center Greg Stiemsma. The incident happened 26 seconds before…
