  1. How the NBA came to own Christmas Day

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Chicago Bulls

    How big is Christmas Day to the NBA? Look at it this way: Last year’s Christmas Day game between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder drew more viewers (9.6 million people) than all but one playoff game prior to the NBA Finals (that was Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals between Miami and…

  2. Monday night NBA grades: LeBron James flashes his MVP credentials

    Dec 24, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about NBA Jam legend Mike Iuzzolino…  LeBron James, Miami Heat. No Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh left late in the game after Paul Millsap elbowed his jaw. Other Heat players struggled (we’re looking at you, Mario Chalmers). Yet there was LeBron James to carry the…

  3. Clippers Matt Barnes fined $25,000, not for foul to Love but for not leaving court

    Dec 23, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    We mentioned this when we brought you this ejection the first time — the foul didn’t seem that bad but if you’re ejected you can’t hang around and argue with the referees. The league frowns on this. And by “frowns” I mean “hates.” The Clippers’ Matt Barnes was fined $25,000 for the incident above from…

  4. Kevin Love put up a monster line against Clippers (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Minnesota lost another close game — they do that a lot — but you can’t blame Kevin Love for this one. He had a monster game — 45 points, 19 rebounds and 6 assists on the night. He got those 45 points on 15-of-23 shooting, hitting shots from the arc out to the post. He…

  5. The Extra Pass: Three things you think about Danny Granger that are wrong

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets  v Indiana Pacers

    In his second game back Sunday, Danny Granger looked good. After battling knee issues that kept him out almost all of last season and most of this one, Granger returned the Pacers lineup this weekend. Sunday against the Celtics he looked like the guy the Pacers are hoping he will be off the bench —…

  6. Matt Barnes ejected for hard foul on Kevin Love (VIDEO)

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s some Bruin on Bruin crime. Kevin Love was having a monster night (he finished with 45 and 19) and the Clippers big men had no answer for him (or Nikola Pekovic) when this happened: Love got the ball at the three point line, pump faked and that just burned Ryan Hollins, so Love put…

  7. Sunday night NBA grades: Kevin Love makes his All-Star statement against Griffin

    Dec 23, 2013, 1:29 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about how Charles Dickens’ classic “Christmas Carroll” almost didn’t get published… Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Love is not going to own up to it, but this came off as a “are all of you really voting for Blake Griffin as an All-Star…

  8. Tony Allen auctioning off shoe that kicked Chris Paul’s face. For charity.

    Dec 20, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    You can own a shoe that has kicked Chris Paul in the face. And who doesn’t want that? Remember the play from Nov. 19 — Tony Allen went into the air, got burned by CP3 something fierce, and in an effort to make a play and kick the ball away he caught Paul across the…

  9. Spurs will rest Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili in nationally televised game, Tony Parker also out

    Dec 19, 2013, 4:32 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Gregg Popovich is making a habit of tempting fate. First, he confronted Stephen Jackson. Even if that was done in a joking manner – and it was – you can never be certain how Jackson will react. Now, the Spurs coach is challenging another one of the NBA’s most strong-willed figures: David Stern. Both Tim…

  10. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…

  11. The Extra Pass: Golden State’s Elevator Screen plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  12. Gregg Popovich yanks off Stephen Jackson’s headband

    Dec 18, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v San Antonio Spurs

    The Spurs released Stephen Jackson just before last season’s playoffs, reportedly, because Jackson had been feuding with Gregg Popovich. Jackson could have been bitter, but he wasn’t. Even as San Antonio made the NBA Finals, he said, “I wouldn’t want me on the team, either.” If nothing else, Jackson  tells it like it is. If…

  13. Google’s most searched NBA player in 2013? LeBron. Top trending team? Do you have to ask?

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Google search records are not the best way to test the popularity of something, but it is a pretty democratic way. Bottom line is you find out who people want to find out more about. As a fun little NBA treat, Google released Tuesday their most searched NBA players… and if you have to guess…

  14. The Extra Pass: The Clippers’ “Rosie” Screen; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Over the next few days in this space, we’ll break down a play that’s largely unique to one team. To kick off this signature series, we’ll start with the Los Angeles Clippers’ “Ring-Around-The-Rosie” screen. Innovation in the NBA is often about adding little wrinkles to something very simple. There are no “Wildcat” offenses that take…

  15. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  16. Clippers could get J.J. Redick back sooner than expected

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    The Clippers just ended a rough seven-game road trip with a 4-3 record, and have struggled overall since J.J. Redick went down with a pair of injuries back on Nov. 29. The initial timetable for his return was 6-8 weeks, but it appears he may be on the low end of the scale in terms…

  17. The Extra Pass: Eric Bledsoe’s path from afterthought to building block; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    In Eric Bledsoe’s final game with the Los Angeles Clippers last season, he played nine minutes and 28 seconds. In that game, the Memphis Grizzlies scored 118 points despite possessing what most would consider a below-average offense. Mike Conley, a player Bledsoe has routinely shut down throughout his career, went to the free throw line…

  18. Chris Paul puts up historic stat line in win over Wizards

    Dec 15, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul was outplayed by Deron Williams in a blowout loss to the Nets on Thursday, and being one of the game’s more fiery competitors, you knew he wasn’t going to let that happen again when facing John Wall and the Wizards in his team’s very next game. The Clippers jumped on the Wizards early,…

  19. Nets notes: Kidd takes some credit, Lopez downplays injury, and Pierce off the bench

    Dec 13, 2013, 10:12 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – A few leftover items from Thursday night’s big win for the Nets, the team’s third straight. When Jason Kidd parted ways with assistant coach Lawrence Frank a little more than a week ago, it was viewed in one of two ways. Either it was a desperate attempt to shift the blame for…

  20. The Extra Pass: Deron Williams is the difference for Nets; plus Thursday’s recaps

    Dec 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    By Brett Pollakoff NEW YORK – It was only a week ago that the Nets were a sinking ship on the verge of capsizing completely, following consecutive losses at home where the team didn’t even seem capable of competing much less staying close enough to win for anywhere near the requisite 48 minutes. Jason Kidd may…

  21. Thursday night NBA grades: Any more questions for LaMarcus Aldridge? Didn’t think so.

    Dec 13, 2013, 2:50 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    Our quick look around the association on a busy Thursday night, or what you missed while worrying about what could happen to Santa’s home due to global warming… LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. I’ve been saying he is the best power forward in the game all season (yes, better than Kevin Love) and he showed…

  22. Deron Williams crosses up Chris Paul. Twice. (VIDEO)

    Dec 13, 2013, 12:12 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Brooklyn Nets

    There was a time when “Deron Williams or Chris Paul?” was a legitimate question worth debating. Not for the past few years however — D-Will has hobbled around with injuries while CP3 has assumed the title of best point guard in the game (with reason). But for a night, the debate could be on again.…

  23. Deron Williams with the crossover on Chris Paul to end first half vs. Clippers (VIDEO)

    Dec 12, 2013, 9:41 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    NEW YORK – Deron Williams began the night by falling to the floor after being victimized by a crossover from Chris Paul. The fact that he stepped on the foot of teammate Brook Lopez was what ultimately caused him to crumble, but Paul’s action at least sent Williams sliding in that direction. In the second…

  24. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

  25. The Extra Pass: Bucks are bad, and that’s good; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    John Henson

    By D.J. Foster All over the league, we’ve seen young teams fighting against the tank. If the playoffs started today, the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns would be in the playoffs. This was unfathomable a few months ago. It wasn’t just about their rosters being bad – they were supposed to be bad. The Milwaukee…
