    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  5. Report: Marc Gasol suffered Grade 2 MCL sprain and is out indefinitely

    GASOL_MARC

    We had an inkling this would be bad. In a loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, Memphis Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol clutched his left knee and suffered what appeared to be a non-contact injury. Those types of injuries can be awfully scary, and the fears of it being serious were only amplified…

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Last season: After totaling up 56 wins in the regular season, the Memphis Grizzlies got sweet revenge over the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, then extinguished a short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder team before finally falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. This was the best season in franchise history by a large…

    JaVale McGee

    Last season: The Nuggets finished the regular season with the best home record in the league, and a franchise best 57 wins, good for the three seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Then, they were bounced out of the first round by the Golden State Warriors in six games. George Karl won Coach of the…

  8. George Karl hopes to return to coaching, admits ‘anger and frustration’ over way things ended with Nuggets

    Oct 6, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    George Karl

    George Karl led the Nuggets to the best home record in all of the NBA last season, and along with it a 57-win season that was the most in franchise history since the team joined the NBA in the 1976-77 season. But all of that wasn’t enough to save Karl’s job. He won the Coach…

  9. Report: Memphis Grizzlies waive Fab Melo

    Aug 30, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Just a couple weeks ago, Memphis traded the expiring contract of Donte Greene plus sent some cash to Boston for the rights to Fab Melo. Friday they waived Melo, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Melo was owed $1.3 million this season fully guaranteed, part of his rookie contract. If no team picks ‘Melo up…

  10. New Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger says he’ll play starters less than Lionel Hollins did

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    The Grizzlies didn’t overly rely on any single player last season. Marc Gasol played 35.0 minutes per game (32nd in the NBA), Mike Conley 34.5 (40th) and Zach Randolph 34.3 (45th). But collectively, Memphis was extremely reliant on its starters Just three other teams – the Warriors, 76ers and Trail Blazers, who had four –…

    Fab Melo, Earl Clark

    The Fab Melo era that never really got started in Boston is over. The Celtics announced they have traded Melo and some cash to the Grizzlies for Donte Greene. CSNNE.com has confirmed this as well. Why? This is a financial move for the Celtics — Melo was going to make $1.3 million this season, Greene…

  12. Report: Grizzlies trade Darrell Arthur to Nuggets for Kosta Koufos

    Jun 27, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    Kosta Koufos

    One of the reasons (and there were several) that the Nuggets cited when parting ways with head coach George Karl was the fact that they were upset that Karl stubbornly started Kosta Koufos over a player who needed development in JaVale McGee. That won’t be a problem for new coach Brian Shaw, since Denver has…

  13. New Nuggets GM says he’s a big JaVale McGee fan

    Jun 20, 2013, 5:18 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    What else is he going to say? Part of the reason team president Josh Kroenke sent George Karl packing was he didn’t play his young players like JaVale McGee enough — Kosta Koufos got the starts. So when new Nuggets General Manager Tim Connelly say when formally introduced? #Nuggets exec Tim Connelly was in Washington…

  14. George Karl unloads on Denver for firing him

    Jun 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    George Karl

    Denver won 57 games, were the three seed in the West, and go into next season with one of the most promising young rosters in the league. Things are looking up. Because he’d helped construct a balanced, attacking, up-tempo system and team out of the parts that came back in the Carmelo Anthony trade, George…

  15. Nuggets reportedly parted ways with George Karl because he wasn’t listening to management

    Jun 7, 2013, 10:23 AM EDT

    George Karl

    When the Nuggets informed George Karl that they would be parting ways with the tenured head coach on Thursday, it was definitely surprising, but it wasn’t necessarily a complete shock. Karl earned the Coach of the Year award for guiding Denver to 57 regular season wins and the best home record in the league, but…

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala drives past Golden State Warriors' Curry during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    The Nuggets finally looked like themselves this series, and not a moment too soon. By beating the Warriors 107-100, the Nuggets not only staved off elimination, but grabbed some momentum in the process. Nearly every Nugget win this season saw the same trends develop and this game was no different. Denver scored 50 points in…

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Even though the series is tied at one game a piece, the Nuggets have been thoroughly outplayed by the Warriors in the first two games. Golden State has had the better game plan and has made the better adjustments. The Nuggets, meanwhile, have been very good in some areas but not able to play their…

  19. Warriors go on the offensive, dominate Nuggets to even the series

    Apr 24, 2013, 2:09 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    The Warriors had a lot of questions surrounding them heading into this game. How would they adjust to playing without David Lee? Who would start in his place? Would Stephen Curry find his offense? Would anyone else step up? In order, they answered those accordingly: not much, Jarrett Jack, YES, and YES. The Warriors put…

  20. Controversial tip-in calls cost Bulls in overtime, Thibodeau is rightfully ticked

    Mar 19, 2013, 11:13 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Noah reacts to a call by the referee during their NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets in Chicago

    To my eye — and by the NBA rulebook as I read it — there were two illegal tip-ins in the final minute of overtime between the Bulls and Nuggets Monday night. Only one was reviewed on video. Only one got overturned. The Bulls lost by one point and Tom Thibodeau has every right to…

  22. Nuggets get 11th straight victory with comeback win over Grizzlies

    Mar 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    The Western Conference playoffs should be amazing this season, and two of the teams that will be as thickly involved as anyone clashed on Friday night in Denver. The Nuggets came away with their 11th straight victory, after bouncing back from a 10-point third quarter and erasing a double-digit deficit to beat a very good…

  23. Are you ready for another return? Carmelo Anthony returns to Denver Wednesday.

    Mar 13, 2013, 9:49 AM EDT

    Knicks forward Anthony reacts to the Bulls missing a free throw attempt in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    This isn’t going to have the venom of Dwight Howard returning to Orlando Tuesday night. Certainly not the same as LeBron James first return to Cleveland. Time softens these things. But Wednesday Carmelo Anthony returns to Denver for the first time since he forced his way out a couple seasons ago. And he’s probably still…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Knicks take night off (except they had a game)

    Mar 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    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…

  25. Three Stars of the Night: Unlikely heroes edition

    Mar 12, 2013, 2:44 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Stephen Jackson, Tim Duncan, and Tiago Splitter of Brazil celebrate after they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Most nights, we have the game’s biggest stars lighting up the scoreboard while leading their teams to victory. That wasn’t the case on Monday, as the leading scorers on the winning side of things were largely unheralded players. Third Star: Kosta Koufos (Game-high and career-high 22 points, 10 rebounds in win over Suns) Koufos isn’t…
