  1. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  2. Manu Ginobili is concerned about Spurs 1-8 record vs. NBA’s best

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:59 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v New Orleans Pelicans

    The Spurs are 32-9, battling for the best record in the West and looking like an elite team most nights. At least one scout thinks they are the same old Spurs, winning games while pacing themselves through the regular season and they are the class of the conference again. But there are questions — they…

    Jan 19, 2014, 3:29 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    It wasn’t much of an elbow, but it was one during a dead ball and the league has not looked kindly on it. David West of the Indiana Pacers got a $15,000 for the above elbow to Blake Griffin‘s head, during the Pacers’ 106-92 win over the Clippers Saturday. West was issued a Flagrant 2…

  5. Pacers’ David West ejected for elbowing Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

    Jan 18, 2014, 11:30 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    David West decided to deliver an unnecessary elbow to the head of Blake Griffin on Saturday, and though it seemed minor in real time, the referees determined that the act warranted a flagrant-two foul, which comes with it an automatic ejection. Anytime something like this goes own, it’s likely the result of a physical buildup…

  6. DeAndre Jordan receives dunk contest invite, but is waiting to see if he’s an All-Star before accepting

    Jan 18, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Five

    DeAndre Jordan would be fantastic as a participant in All-Star weekend’s slam dunk contest. He’s a big man who also has tremendous leaping ability, and could be the next incarnation of Dwight Howard in terms of entertainment during the midseason exhibition. The league recognized that fact by approaching Jordan about it before Friday’s game against…

  8. Clippers win fifth straight over Knicks, finding their way in Chris Paul’s absence

    Jan 18, 2014, 12:01 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    NEW YORK – The Clippers were a middle of the pack playoff team in the loaded Western Conference, before Chris Paul went down with a shoulder injury that could keep him out up to five weeks. Common sense would dictate that they see an immediate drop-off in overall play and production, but the absence of…

  9. Blake Griffin with the monster alley-oop finish against Knicks (VIDEO)

    Jan 17, 2014, 9:51 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin seemingly converts at least one of these per game, but there were a couple of things we liked about this particular alley-oop he completed against the Knicks. The pass from Jamal Crawford was simply perfect, and the fact that Griffin was further away than usual and had to extend to throw it down…

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:45 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban,  Brian Forte

  12. Clippers end wild game on 11-0 run to come back, beat Mavericks

    Jan 16, 2014, 2:45 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    LOS ANGELES — If the ball hadn’t been orange with David Stern’s signature on it rather than red, white and blue I would have sworn this was an old ABA game. It was fast paced with all kinds of offense, questionable defense, a ton of threes, some chippy play, and huge runs — the Los…

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

    Orlando Magic v Dallas Mavericks

    You might have had an idea this was coming after Doc Rivers said Monday night “we’re looking at him strong,” but now it looks like it is set to happen Wednesday.

    Jan 13, 2014, 4:34 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Lawson celebrates a three-point shot against Golden State Warriors in their NBA Western Conference quarter-final basketball playoff in Denver

    Not bad Denver Nuggets, not bad. Ty Lawson likely isn’t getting invited to New Orleans for the NBA All-Star game — he’s not in the Top 10 vote getters in the Western Conference backcourt so far this season — but Denver is pushing his candidacy with this video, making light of Lawson’s speed. To me,…

  20. Hedo Turkoglu impresses Doc Rivers in workout for Clippers

    Jan 11, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Hedo Turkoglu wasn’t a part of the futre in Orlando, and as a result, the Magic let him know that before the season began and allowed him to remain away from the team until he was either dealt or waived. When no one was willing to offer anything in trade for Turkoglu, the Magic decided…

  21. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out indefinitely with stress fracture in leg

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    Ugh. The list of quality point guards currently out injured in the NBA includes Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Eric Bledsoe (even if he played some two guard)… And now Jrue Holiday. Pelicans starting point guard Holiday has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right tibia and will be out…

  23. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  24. Timberwolves’ video campaigns for your Kevin Love All-Star Vote

    Jan 9, 2014, 1:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Kevin Love is going to be an All-Star, the coaches will select him as a reserve without a doubt. But the Timberwolves want you to vote him in as a starter. In the last vote update from the league, Love was about 22,000 votes behind Blake Griffin for the final starting spot in the Western…
