  1. Clippers’ J.J. Redick out indefinitely with bulging disc in back, other injuries

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:08 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    UPDATE: 9:08 pm: The Clippers have made it official, saying J.J. Redick is out “indefinitely with a bulging disc in his lower back.” While he certainly has a variety of injuries, it is the back that is the most serious. They still expect to have him back for the playoffs. 7:45 pm: This is pretty…

  2. Report: Doc Rivers, Clippers still in market to add front line depth

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Doc Rivers

    Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have played 1,638 minutes together this season — 61.7 percent of the Clippers’ total minutes this season. The next big man on the minutes list in Ryan Hollins and he has played 406 minutes. Total. Doc Rivers is riding the Griffin/Jordan combo hard because he has no choice — Hollins,…

  3. The Extra Pass: Clearing out my All-Star notebook, including fixing the dunk contest

    Feb 18, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    2014 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Four days in New Orleans left me about 20 pounds heavier (at least it feels that way, time to mix in a salad) and with a notebook full of thoughts and tidbits that didn’t find their way into other posts. So, here is a notebook dump. • Paul George said after the All-Star Game Frank…

  4. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

    NEW ORLEANS – All-Star weekend brings the game’s best athletes together for three action-packed days of festivities, and the major shoe companies similarly show up with unique and original installations to help fans partake in the overall experience.

  6. Blake Griffin’s All-Star Game dunkathon (VIDEO)

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:32 PM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS – Blake Griffin has shown a much rounder game this season — his midrange game is solid, he has a variety of post moves and counters, his handles have stepped up the past few years. Yet it’s the dunks we want to see, and Griffin understands that and put on a high-flying show…

  7. Karl Malone is a big Anthony Davis fan

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    anthony Davis

    NEW ORLEANS — Right now it’s a serious debate about who is the best power forward in the game — LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love lead most lists, Blake Griffin is trying to muscle in on the list, but guys like Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki still have a say in the matter. If five…

  8. All-Star 2014: The Standouts

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:40 AM EDT

    NBA-All-Star-Game-2014-starters

    First, the obvious: The NBA All-Star Game is different from a normal basketball game. Apathy often reigns supreme, especially on defense, in this yearly exhibition, and there’s a premium on flashy play instead of solid, efficient basketball. For some players, it’s a dream format, while it’s less than ideal for others. In short, how a…

  9. Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony shoot East to win in highest scoring NBA All-Star Game ever

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:18 AM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS — The NBA All-Star Game is never exactly a defensive showcase, it’s an exhibition. But this year’s version was an analytic lover’s dream: Three pointers and dunks. A lot of them. In the highest-scoring NBA All-Star Game ever, the East beat the West 163-155. This was the kind of showcase of athleticism the…

  10. John Wall on LeBron: “I don’t think he is a big dunk contest person”

    Feb 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Washington Wizards

    John Wall is stepping up his game. He admitted Friday when speaking to the media before the All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest that in games he holds back — his fear of missing and embarrassing himself makes him go the safe route rather than to show off. Saturday night he’s in the dunk contest and he…

  11. James Harden to start All-Star Game for Kobe Bryant

    Feb 14, 2014, 9:33 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Kobe Bryant was already replaced on the Western Conference All-Star roster with Anthony Davis, but that was only half the process. Kobe must also be replaced in the starting lineup. Looks like that’s settled, too. Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports: Injured Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will be replaced as a Western Conference All-Star…

  12. NBA open to idea of expanding All-Star break to a week

    Feb 14, 2014, 9:20 AM EDT

    NBA Commissioner David Stern Announces Retirement

    The All-Star weekend is a busy one — and not just for Damian Lillard (who will be in five events during the weekend). For the players selected to the team it is a whirlwind of media events, community events, practices and, oh yea, a basketball game. Plus a few parties. Then a few more parties.…

  13. The Extra Pass: Predictions for All-Star Weekend

    Feb 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

  14. Blake Griffin leaves door open for Slam Dunk Contest return

    Feb 13, 2014, 7:15 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Ten of the 13 Slam Dunk Contest champions since Vince Carter have defended their title the following year. One exception was Nate Robinson, who bowed out after winning back-to-back Dunk Contests for for his second and third titles in the event. Another was Fred Jones, who was injured. The third? Blake Griffin. Griffin won the…

  15. Blake Griffin drops 36 and 10 on Portland, plus a few dunks (VIDEO)

    Feb 13, 2014, 11:29 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics  v Los Angeles Clippers

    In the Lamarcus Aldridge vs. Blake Griffin, give the latest round to Griffin. On points. A lot of points. Blake Griffin had 36 points and 10 rebounds in a defense optional game (apparently), which played to the Clippers strengths. Los Angeles won the game 122-117. Griffin had the kind of big numbers, highlight-filled game that had fans…

  16. Jim Boeheim tells Carmelo Anthony to leave Knicks (basically)

    Feb 13, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Jim Boeheim, who coached Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse, discussed Melo’s pending free agency with Jim Rome (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball). Boeheim: What I’d tell him is what I would tell any NBA great player. If you’re a great player in the NBA, for you to be recognized as a great player,…

  17. Monday night NBA grades: All-Stars shine and a new-look Pelican

    Feb 13, 2014, 4:16 AM EDT

    BgUeRJkCYAAV5cp

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy jeans for an Olympic skier… DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He certainly looked like an All-Star before hopping on a plane to New Orleans — 31 points on 11-of-19 shooting, five rebounds, three assists. Granted, he was being covered by Kyle Korver…

  18. Clippers hold off Trail Blazers for win… can these two meet in playoffs, please?

    Feb 13, 2014, 3:21 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    If the playoffs started today, the Los Angeles Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers would meet in the first round… please let that happened. Defense? Who needs it? We want Blake Griffin vs. LaMarcus Aldridge. We want dunks and threes. This matchup would just be entertaining. When these two teams first met the day after Christmas…

  19. Suns’ president reiterates team will match any offer for Eric Bledsoe

    Feb 12, 2014, 3:55 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Phoenix Suns are going to have to pay big money to keep Eric Bledsoe this summer. They know it. They’d just like to keep the price down a little. The Suns are committed to Bledsoe, having traded Jared Dudley for him. They thought Bledsoe could be a cornerstone piece. However, that’s different than the…

  20. John Wall: People see me as a No. 1 pick who hasn’t done anything

    Feb 11, 2014, 4:22 PM EDT

    John Wall, LeBron James

    Professional athletes love to talk about all the people who don’t believe in them, even if everyone believes in them. Some get creative. Throughout his NBA career, Michael Jordan referenced a high school coach cutting him. That was because nobody really doubted Jordan during his time at North Carolina and with the Chicago Bulls. But…

  21. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

  22. The Extra Pass: The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the clock

    Feb 11, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Clippers

    10 days before the trade deadline. 30 games left in the season. One contract year remaining. To say this is one of the most important time frames in the history of the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise isn’t overly dramatic or hyperbolic. It’s reality. Minnesota has never won a championship. 25 years, no rings, and an overall…

  23. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  24. Blake Griffin with back-to-back windmill alley-oop throwdowns (VIDEO)

    Feb 10, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Philadelphia “defense” provided a blank canvas on which the Los Angeles Clippers could create whatever art they wanted Sunday night (Los Angeles led 100-51 after three quarters). And when you let the Clippers do whatever they want, you get alley-oops. Chris Paul was back to throw them and Blake Griffin was finishing them with…

  25. Sunday night NBA grades: It’s Kevin Durant’s world we just live in it

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:08 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jeopardy to see what all the Arthur Chu fuss is about…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. If you are going to win the MVP award you need a couple monster games on national television. Durant delivered that on Sunday — 41 points, 10…
