    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what made Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia think that hat was a good choice at the inauguration….

  3. Stephen Curry with the amazing pass to Jarrett Jack on the break (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2013, 8:32 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    In a day full of highlights, this might have been one of the best. Midway through the fourth quarter of a tight contest between the Clippers and the Warriors, Stephen Curry grabs the rebound and leads the fast break. He doesn’t get very far, though, before spotting a streaking Jarrett Jack. Curry stops at halfcourt,…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Clippers back on top, showdown with Thunder Tuesday

    Jan 21, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    BKN-CLIPPERS-WIZARDS

    No change in the top four teams, but really it feels like right now there is a top three teams with the Heat capable of being that good but not really choosing to all the time. 1. Clippers (32-9, last week ranked No. 2). Chris Paul sits out three games, Eric Bledsoe steps in and…

  6. Blake Griffin leads the break, finds DeAndre Jordan for the alley-oop slam (VIDEO)

    Jan 20, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We can probably find some sick Blake Griffin highlights from just about every one of the Clippers’ games this season. But usually he’s on the receiving end of one of these plays, not the one leading the break and throwing the perfect pass. Midway through the third quarter of Saturday night’s win over the Wizards,…

  7. Vinny Del Negro sees trade rumors surrounding Eric Bledsoe as a positive

    Jan 20, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    BLEDSOE_ERIC

    When Chris Paul missed three straight games for the Clippers with a bruised right kneecap, the team didn’t miss him nearly as much as you might have thought. That’s because they have an athletic and capable backup in Eric Bledsoe, who started in place of Paul and had two above average performances in helping L.A.…

  8. After 11 straight All-Star selections, Nowitzki’s streak about to end

    Jan 20, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki reacts after hitting a shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Dirk Nowitzki missed the first third of the season with following knee surgery. Since he has returned he hasn’t been himself — 14 points a game on 41 percent shooting, with a PER right at the league average of 15. All of that has been just part of a disappointing season so far in Dallas.…

  9. Clippers send promotional material to coaches to try to get Jamal Crawford voted in as an All-Star

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Bosh

    The All-Star reserves will be announced this Thursday, and with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both already in as members of the Western Conference starting lineup, there isn’t a great possibility that another player from the Clippers will make it as the team’s third representative. But that isn’t stopping the Clippers organization from trying. With…

  10. Rubio wants Minnesota to stop using rash of injuries as excuse

    Jan 18, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    Injury-ravaged Minnesota looked across the court and saw the Los Angeles Clippers — a team without MVP candidate Chris Paul due to injury. But without him the Clippers this week are 3-0 with road wins against Memphis, Houston before coming to Minnesota. The Clippers just steamrolled the Timberwolves Thursday and made Minnesota’s complaining about injuries…

    Jan 18, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    It was easy to be excited for this one going in. Ricky Rubio is always must see TV, and Eric Bledsoe is capable of providing some serious fireworks. Pit the two against each other, throw in a few Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan jams, and you’ve got yourself a game, right? Well, not exactly. Bledsoe…

    The 2013 NBA All-Star starters were announced just after 7 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, and in the both the Eastern and Western conferences, there were no surprises.

  14. Gary Payton talks Lillard, D-Will and guarding Jordan

    Jan 17, 2013, 4:02 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    We look at today’s NBA as almost a new golden age of point guards — Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, Tony Parker, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and the list goes on and on. It’s a very different era from when Gary Payton was at the peak of his career. Back then Payton could body up on…

  15. Jeremy Lin says what most of us knew: He shouldn’t be an All-Star

    Jan 17, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin is starting to play pretty well in Houston, there are more and more games where you can see how he will fit in with James Harden and what they are doing. He is not deserving to be an All-Star. When the All-Star starters are announced later Thursday night, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul…

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at the maturation of the Los Angeles Clippers. For years and years, the Los Angeles Clippers were a failure on a systemic level. The on-court talent was faced with…

  17. Josh Smith frustrated, suspended. Does that mean he’s on trade block?

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:35 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    There was a lot of frustration around the Atlanta Hawks Tuesday — the team had lost seven of their last nine games, their defense had been terrible and their offense had followed suit the last couple games. That frustration bubbled over in practice Tuesday, when Josh Smith was thrown out of practice and later suspended…

  18. Report: Knicks worried Rasheed Wallace could be done for season

    Jan 16, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    Rasheed Wallace has been out a month now with what the team first called a “sore left foot” then later changed that to a “stress reaction” in his left foot. You’ve got to love the Knicks, they can’t even admit it’s a stress fracture when it’s a stress fracture because… who knows why? They’re the…

  19. Nets show real ball movement on fast break (VIDEO)

    Jan 16, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Brooklyn Nets

    Yes, there were a lot of fantastic highlights last night — Blake Griffin with a steal and another huge dunk, Terrence Ross with probably the best dunk of the night, and many more. But this was probably my favorite, because after the Robin Lopez block there is one dribble on a fast break all about…

  20. The Extra Pass: Kevin Durant’s shot at history

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  22. Chris Paul to miss a second game for Clippers due to knee

    Jan 15, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    It was expected at first that Chris Paul would miss both games in Texas that the Clippers had this week — he bumped knees with J.J. Redick on Saturday and sat out Monday night with a bruised kneecap. He’s going to be out Tuesday night as well, tweets Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. That…

  23. “Bank of Cuban is open,” look for Dallas to be aggressive at deadline

    Jan 15, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban made a gamble — he stripped down his championship roster to go after a big time free agent, to restock a roster while Dirk Nowitizki’s championship window is still open. It didn’t work this summer — Deron Williams stayed in Brooklyn. It’s not likely to work next summer because people close to the…

  24. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami’s little slump getting serious

    Jan 15, 2013, 7:55 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz guard Hayward watches as Miami Heat forward James reacts to a call during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while getting sucked into the “Good Will Hunting” oral history… Thunder 102, Suns 90: Kevin Durant is really, really good. Not sure if you knew that. The Suns were given a first-hand reminder when KD dropped 41 on the Suns in their home…
