  2. Report: Andrea Bargnani “a lock to be moved”

    Dec 29, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Andrea Bargnani reacts after hitting a shot during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    It sounds like the Toronto Raptors are finally ready to give up on Andrea Bargnani. The first pick of the 2006 draft has displayed tantalizing potential and has put together short bursts of production throughout his seven seasons in Toronto, but his deficiencies as a defender and a rebounder have become increasingly more difficult to…

  3. Blazers GM says he has no plans to trade LaMarcus Aldridge

    Dec 27, 2012, 11:42 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, James Johnson

    I’m not sure where this buzz started, but there seems to be a buzz that the Trail Blazers would be willing to listen to LaMarcus Aldridge trade offers. Not happening. Not even close. Nor should it, but we’ll get to that. What matters is that when Jason Quick of the Oregonian asked Blazers GM Neil…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: James Harden leads dramatic Boxing Day finishes

    Dec 27, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, James Harden

Rockets 87, Timberwolves 84: James Harden is making quite the All-Star case, and making the Rockets look more and more…

  5. Report: Jazz will deal Al Jefferson or Paul Millsap before trade deadline

    Dec 15, 2012, 8:30 PM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson

    The Utah Jazz will have some interesting decisions to make this summer. And they involve whether or not to keep the team’s two best players. Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are both legitimate starting frontcourt players, each with a unique skill set that would have tremendous value for a multitude of NBA teams. There are…

  6. San Antonio’s stars actually play, but a rookie steals the show

    Dec 14, 2012, 3:22 AM EDT

    Parker shoots against Lillard during NBA basketball game in Portland, Oregon

    The Spurs were playing the second half of a back-to-back, on the road in a notoriously tough place to win, with stars that are notoriously still pretty old. It begs the question: Had David Stern not dropped the boom earlier this season with a $250,000 dollar fine for keeping their stars out, would Gregg Popovich…

  7. Nothing shocking here: Kobe, LeBron lead All-Star ballot early returns

    Dec 13, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    We don’t exactly need Nate Silver to break down these voting returns and trends — the players in the lead early in the NBA All-Star balloting almost always stay on top. Occasionally guys close small gaps, but generally what you see now is what you get. In which case — good job public. No glaring…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Heat put together a complete game. That will beat anyone.

    Dec 11, 2012, 3:42 AM EDT

Jeremy Lin took charge in the third quarter, slashed into the defense, hit rainbow jumpers and looked like…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers show up for a half, that’s enough in New Orleans

    Dec 6, 2012, 3:29 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching Bilbo Baggins going on a drunken ‘Unexpected Journey’… Lakers 103, Hornets 87: On night where Kobe Bryant became only the 5th player in NBA history to hit the 30,000 career point plateau, the Lakers also got the win. And so…

  10. Blazers coach Stotts says criticism of LaMarcus Aldridge is undeserved

    Dec 5, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol

    Overall, LaMarcus Aldridge is playing at a high level for the Blazers. But the fact that he’s seemingly reverted to jump-shots over post play has resulted in some criticism that his head coach doesn’t feel is appropriate at this time. Aldridge’s points-per-game average of 20.8 is down alost a point from last season, but his…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Robin Lopez, Luke Babbitt key wins. It was that kind of night.

    Dec 4, 2012, 3:42 AM EDT

  12. Three Stars of the Night: The all power forward edition

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:02 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Tonight we will play the four — three power forwards who keyed their teams’ wins. Third Star: Glen Davis (24 points, 6 rebounds) A night after an emotional win in Los Angeles — don’t think for a second those Magic players didn’t enjoy beating and embarrassing Dwight Howard after standing up for him for years…

  13. The streak is dead — Wizards win first game of season. But they made it hard on themselves.

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Washington Wizards

    Break up the Wizards. Okay, maybe we’re not there yet. But Washington’s 12-game losing streak to start the season came to an end at home with an 84-82 win over Portland. They did it with 19 points from Jordan Crawford off the bench, with Trevor Ariza being efficient (14 points on 6-of-9 shooting) and with…

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Jazz, Bucks make it night of the comebacks

    Nov 27, 2012, 7:34 AM EDT

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while thinking there are some really screwed up people in Germany…. Nets 96, Knicks 89 (OT): It certainly wasn’t the best-played, prettiest game of the young season, but it was the most intense. The one with the most playoff feel, both…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Memphis hangs on but Spurs, Heat charging

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless, Mike Conley

    If you ask me who was the best team in the NBA was last week, well, it was Denver. But they are fully capable of a winless week now, so we leave Memphis in the top spot this week. And Washington is still trying to find a win and a way out of the cellar…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston falls and fails in Detroit

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

Lakers 119, Rockets 108: Two straight games with big point totals for the Lakers — 114 last game, 119 this one — and two wins. And that’s with Mike D’Antoni not even…

  17. LaMarcus Aldridge’s wrist injury something to watch

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:40 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    Against Indiana Monday night LaMarcus Aldridge fell, put his hands out to break the fall and tweaked his wrist. It got worse over the next 24 hours. How much worse? Look what he told Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com before the game. In warmups, he says he couldn’t shoot the ball & it scared him. Says…

  18. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    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,…

  19. LaMarcus Aldridge doesn’t think he’s shooting too many jumpers, but thanks for asking

    Nov 9, 2012, 10:43 AM EDT

    Lamarcus Aldridge Wesley Matthews

    The Blazers have a new head coach, a lower overall talent level, and a couple of rookies who they’re going to get as much experience as possible in what is slated as a rebuilding year in Portland by just about everyone’s standards. The team still has Nicolas Batum, Wesley Matthews and LaMarcus Aldridge, of course,…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

  21. Blazers plan to use ‘Hack-a-Dwight’ strategy against Howard and the Lakers

    Oct 31, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    After a dismal opening night performance at home in a loss to Dallas, the Lakers will take to the road for their second game in as many nights against a Blazers team that’s ready and waiting. There was plenty wrong with L.A. on Tuesday — the offense was horrid, and the defense (if you want…

  22. Blazers to start Hickson at center. They open against Lakers.

    Oct 23, 2012, 8:22 PM EDT

    J.J.Hickson

    It’s looked more and more through the preseason like this was the direction things were headed. At 6’9” J.J. Hickson is not a traditional center by any means, but he is going to get the starting five job in Portland this season. At least on opening night. New coach Terry Stotts announced his decision Tuesday…

  23. Video: Meyers Leonard, Damian Lillard do the dougie

    Oct 22, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard

    Well, at least it’s not someone doing the Gangnam Style horsey dance. I’m over that. These are your Portland Trail Blazer rookies, primarily Damian Lillard and Meyers Leonard, doing the Dougie as part of some on-court hazing by LaMarcus Aldridge and the Portland Trail Blazers. Lillard has got some moves. Leonard dances like a 7’1″…

  24. Video: Meyers Leonard with impressive dunk, weak celebration

    Oct 18, 2012, 8:42 AM EDT

    Meyers Leonar, Metta World Peace, Antwon Johnson, Pau Gasol

    That is Blazers rookie center Meyers Leonard showing he has hops and can finish around the rim. He’s going to get the chance to prove himself, he’s going to get the run this season. Hopefully we see more of that — now that’s how you close the sale. The “flex” celebration afterwards… not so impressive.…

  25. Aldridge says he’s a No. 1, Blazers should build around him

    Oct 15, 2012, 1:03 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Is LaMarcus Aldridge a real No. 1 guy for an NBA team? How you answer that question determines what you think the Blazers need to be doing as they restructure the roster. If you think he is a Kevin Garnett, Dirk Nowitzki, Dwight Howard you can build a contender around, then the Blazers should be…
