  1. Nets’ Gerald Wallace becomes second player fined for flopping

    Dec 5, 2012, 4:47 PM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James is defended by Brooklyn Nets' Gerald Wallace during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami,

    Got to say this for Gerald Wallace — he saves his flops for the biggest stars. Wallace became the second NBA player fined for flopping, getting to write a $5,000 check to the league for clearly trying to sell a call against LeBron James last Saturday. LeBron made contact with his right arm but then…

  2. Chauncey Billups latest to receive warning for flopping (VIDEO)

    Dec 5, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers guard Billups walks past fans after second half of NBA game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    Chauncey Billups became the latest offender of the league’s policy against flopping on Wednesday, receiving a warning for this kickout of his left leg late in the Clippers win over the Jazz on December 3. It’s a clear flop, but the problem is that it worked to perfection. L.A. was trailing by two, and Billups…

  3. Lamar Odom says he won’t have any emotions when facing his former team (the Mavericks)

    Dec 5, 2012, 1:44 PM EST

    Lamar Odom, Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen

    The Lakers traded Lamar Odom to the Mavericks before last season began, but after Odom had just finished his best all-around year in 12 NBA seasons. Odom took home the Sixth Man of the Year trophy in 2011, and yet L.A. had no problem dealing him to a Western Conference rival in exchange for nothing…

  4. Celtics not interested in Kenyon Martin, Dampier maybe

    Dec 5, 2012, 10:20 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    The Celtics are looking for depth along the front line. Kenyon Martin is the best free agent big man out there on the market. But with Martin can come an attitude — he had issue with Vinny Del Negro last season, he’s outspoken and has the reputation of rubbing both management and some players the…

  5. Utah’s Favors officially diagnosed with plantar fasciitis

    Dec 4, 2012, 11:57 AM EST

    favors-fined

    If you want to know how much the Utah Jazz miss Derrick Favors, watch Chris Paul’s layup that gave the Clippers the lead for good on Monday night. Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are good players, but Favors provides athleticism on the defensive end they do not. And that the Jazz miss. And Utah may…

  6. Video: Chris Paul with the go-ahead driving layup vs. Jazz

    Dec 4, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    This is about Chris Paul being Chris Paul and making the play that put the Clippers up for good and got them the win. But it’s also about the Jazz defense and how they miss Derrick Favors. Paul called DeAndre Jordan out and uses the screen well to pick-off DeMarre Carroll, but notice how Al…

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

    Dec 4, 2012, 3:42 AM EST

    Brandon Jennings, Robin Lopez

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while trying to decide if you love or hate the new Air Jordan XX8…. Clippers 105, Jazz 104: Blake Griffin has his biggest scoring game of the year and the Clippers hand the Jazz their first home loss of the year.…

  8. Clippers 105, Jazz 104: Don’t make Chris Paul angry

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:13 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    The city of Los Angeles may not have Phil Jackson, but Chris Paul is doing his best to carry on some of the Zen Master’s most notable traits. Remember how Jackson would never call timeouts when his team was on the bad end of a big run? Timeouts were considered to be bailouts. Jackson wanted…

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

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:02 AM EST

    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…

  10. Video: Byron Mullens with the Dunk of the Year? Let’s all go home.

    Dec 3, 2012, 8:43 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Remember when And-1 mixtapes ruled the world? Those were good times. If someone got dunked on in one of those games — I’m talking really embarrassed — they would yank the poor sucker off the court and tell him to go home. Sometimes they would just end the game, let the crowd rush the court,…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: Heat, Thunder on top, it feels like 2011

    Miami Heat's James celebrates win over Atlanta Hawks with Bosh and Allen during their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    It’s early in the season, very early, but there are moments it feels line the NBA finals come June could be a rematch of last year — Miami vs. Oklahoma City. And that really shouldn’t be a surprise. Right now those two teams are on top of the PBT power rankings. 1. Heat (12-3, last…

  12. Celtics ‘wary’ of bringing in Kenyon Martin to fill team’s roster spot

    Dec 2, 2012, 4:30 PM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    The Celtics need help on the boards, and could use an experienced big man to fill the team’s open roster spot. Someone like Kenyon Martin, maybe, who is out there and waiting to be picked up by any team that will have him. Boston has always been a team sensitive to the personalities it brings…

    Brooklyn Nets v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a guy do a backflip on a surfboard…. Thunder 120, Rockets 98: Welcome back to Oklahoma City James Harden. After a warm reception from the crowd Harden was 3-of-16 shooting and struggled to defend Kevin Durant (who doesn’t?). And…

  14. Report: Billups to return to Clippers Wednesday, will start

    Nov 28, 2012, 3:21 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Most players who have a major Achilles tendon injury at age 36 are done. It’s time to walk away from the game, spend more time with your family and your golf game. Not Chauncey Billups. Not Mr. Big Shot. The Clippers guard was going to leave the game on his own terms and worked hard…

  15. LeBron James back on top, King of NBA jersey sales again

    Nov 28, 2012, 10:06 AM EST

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures during a free throw in the second quarter of Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs against the Boston Celtics in Miami

    The deepest of LeBron James haters didn’t want to hear it but we were telling you this from the day after the decision — win a ring and the public perception of him would change. He’s got a ring, a gold medal from London, he was the NBA regular season and finals MVP — and…

  16. Tuesday And-1 links: Dwight Howard not that influential. Apparently.

    Nov 27, 2012, 4:50 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Dwight Howard and James Dolan — congratulations! You made GQ’s list of least…

  17. Are Griffin, CP3 comments the start of pressure on Vinny Del Negro?

    Nov 27, 2012, 1:46 PM EST

    Vinny Del Negro

    The Clippers are struggling — 1-4 in their last five. The why is that two of the reasons they showed so much improvement at the start of the season have regressed — their defense has been a total mess the past week plus and DeAndre Jordan has reverted to his old self. That and defenses…

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

    Denver Nuggets' Iguodala is ejected during their NBA basketball game against Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    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…

  19. Three Stars of the Night: Super Sub Edition

    Nov 27, 2012, 1:44 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    The towel waver. The dancer. The 27-step handshake guy.  Every bench player has their role, but our Three Stars of the Night broke the mold and did a whole lot more than watch the starters. On a night where Brooklyn beat up on their big brother and the Hornets bested Chris Paul, anything seemed possible…so…

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

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:25 PM EST

    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…

  21. Video: Lakers’ Robert Sacre Knows How To Celebrate

    Nov 26, 2012, 1:34 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Lakers have had a long history of great big men…celebrators. From Mark Madsen to Ronny Turiaf, the purple and gold always seem to have a big guy on their bench that knows how cheer on his mates. This year’s team has rookie big man Robert Sacre filling this role and he’s awesome at it.…

  22. Reminder: Jeremy Lin likely to be voted in as an All-Star starter

    Nov 25, 2012, 3:00 PM EST

    Knicks Lin talks during a new conference before the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    This is not exactly breaking news, because (A) it hasn’t actually happened yet, and (B) it’s been widely speculated about since last season. But it is worth reminding you about nonetheless. When the NBA’s All-Star festivities descend on Houston in February, Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin is more than likely to appear in the mid-season…

  23. Blake Griffin’s incredible block on Deron Williams in super-slow motion (VIDEO)

    Nov 24, 2012, 6:01 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Brooklyn Nets

    We showed you Blake Griffin‘s insane block on Deron WIlliams last night, because hey, that’s what we’re here for. But the NBA recognizes greatness, and has the cameras in place to give us a more special look at plays like this when they happen. This super-slow motion look at it makes it seem even more…

  24. Video: Blake Griffin with insane block on Deron Williams

    Nov 23, 2012, 8:41 PM EST

    deron Williams

    Oh me oh my. (Well, they probably said that on the Clippers’ broadcast.) Blake Griffin is not usually the fastest with defensive rotations, but sometimes athleticism can make up for a lot. Just ask Deron Williams, who thought he had a path to the rim only to run into Griffin and get blocked — not…

  25. Video: Watch DeAndre Jordan’s summer workout routine

    Nov 23, 2012, 6:49 PM EST

    DeAndre Jordan

    DeAndre Jordan is having a career year — 10.6 points per game on 66.2 percent shooting, he’s taken on more of the offense and is absorbing it and producing. Plus he has been improved on defense. Those kinds of improvements are earned in the off-season and here is a video of Jordan’s workouts this summer.…
