  1. 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…

  2. “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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. PBT Extra: Taking Gasol, Gay, other NBA trade rumors

    BASKET-US-LAKERS-PACERS

    With a month to go until the trade deadline, we are at the “feeling out” phase of the trade deadline — teams are calling around, talking, seeing who might be available and what the costs will be. In this week’s PBT Extra Kay Adams and I talk about the prospects of moving some of the…

  6. Chris Paul out for Clippers Monday vs. Grizzlies, maybe more

    Jan 14, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers may be the deepest team in the NBA, but that’s going to get a test Monday. And maybe a little more beyond that. Chris Paul will be out Monday night when the Clippers travel to face the Grizzlies, reports the Los Angeles Times. Clippers point guard Chris Paul has a contusion in his…

  7. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, Nuggets climbing ranks

    Jan 14, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Chris Duhon, Earl Clark

    Each of the top five teams in last week’s ranking suffered losses, some pretty ugly losses. So, who bounced back and looked best after that? Oklahoma City, so they maintain the top spot. 1. Thunder (28-8, Last week ranked No. 1). Kevin Durant is a better playmaker than last year. Russell Westbrook a better floor…

  8. Report: Cavaliers wanted DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe for Varejao

    Jan 14, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    Injured or not, Anderson Varejao is one guy whose name will come up around the trade deadline — big men who work hard, defend and rebound are always in demand. The buzz has been that Cleveland would listen to your offer but they wanted a lot back in return for Varejao. A lot. And this…

  10. A list of NBA players who can veto or block trades in 2013

    Jan 13, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Excellent information from Marc Stein of ESPN.com in his weekend column, where he details the circumstances surrounding the ability of various players to either block or veto a trade involving them this season. There are 19 players in total that can throw a wrench in their respective team’s trade talks if they so choose, due…

  11. Blake Griffin goes off for 30, and don’t think they’re all dunks (VIDEO)

    Jan 13, 2013, 2:51 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    It wasn’t enough — the Orlando Magic snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 13-game home winning streak. Mostly because the Clippers defense — which has been stout all season — took the night off. But Blake Griffin had a big game for Los Angeles — 30 points on 15-of-22 shooting. Here are the highlights. Yes, there…

  12. Magic snap Clippers’ 13-game home winning streak

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Grant Hill, Josh McRoberts

    The Orlando Magic are just 13-23 on the season, but they have some surprising signature wins that give the fan base hope as the team rebuilds without a superstar on the roster, and with a first-year head coach running the show. Saturday afternoon’s come-from-behind 104-101 win over a Clippers team that held a share of…

  13. Grant Hill to make season debut for Clippers Saturday vs. Magic

    Jan 12, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    If you were looking for a reason to tune in for an afternoon contest between the Clippers and the Magic, Grant Hill making his season debut for Los Angeles is as good a reason as any. Hill was said to be a game time decision after practice on Friday, but Vinnie Del Negro told reporters…

  14. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live (VIDEO)

    Jan 11, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Clippers guard Paul and forward Griffin return to the court following an injury to Griffin against the Grizzlies during the second half of game five in the Western Conference quarterfinals of the 2012 NBA playoffs in Memphis

    Los Angeles isn’t a Clippers town. But it is a town with a growing number of Clippers fans. And it sounds like half of them were in the crowd at Jimmy Kimmel Live when Blake Griffin and Chris Paul swung by. The one new bit of information is that during the 17-game winning streak the…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas makes the Clippers work for it

    Jan 10, 2013, 8:01 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while listening to an ice record… Spurs 108, Lakers 105: The Lakers went on a 13-2 run in the fourth quarter to make this game interesting down the stretch, but in the end the result was the fifth straight Los…

    Kenneth Faried

    There are only two food items on the menu at the west coast burger chain In and Out — burgers and fries — but there’s something called “Animal Style” where they put…heck, I don’t even know what they do, but it’s messy and it involves mustard-grilled something or other and it’s just all over the…

  18. Tuesday And-1 links: Plans to lure Kings to Virginia Beach appear dead

    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 like Alabamans love Nick Saban…. • Plans for an arena deal in Virginia Beach…

  19. Report: Knicks considering signing Kenyon Martin

    Jan 8, 2013, 6:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Rasheed Wallace — at age 38 and having taken a season off from the NBA — really brought the Knicks something off the bench. Yes, there was 7.2 points a game and the threat of a big who can shoot to space the floor. But more importantly, he brought some size on defense in the…

  20. Spike Lee directs Chris Paul in new NBA “BIG” ad (VIDEO)

    Jan 8, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Spike Lee is directing some new ads in the NBA’s “BIG” campaign (which, honestly, is not my favorite of their campaigns) and he had his hand in this latest Chris Paul ad. My favorite part is the silent Steve Nash cameo. That or the Ralph Lawler line (he is the Clippers announcer used in the…

  21. Grant Hill practicing with Clippers, could play Saturday

    Jan 8, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    Great news Vinny Del Negro, you’ve got another perimeter player you need to find minutes for… Grant Hill and his 40-year-old knees are back practicing with the team, reports Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com. He could return to the lineup Saturday when the Clippers host the Magic. “We’ll see how he does tomorrow in practice and…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, but it’s close

    Jan 7, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    To be honest, you could have ranked the top three in this week’s PBT NBA Power Rankings and been fine. I’m giving the top spot to the Thunder this week because I think they’d beat the Clippers or Spurs in a seven game series right now. But not easily. 1. Thunder (26-7, Last week ranked…

  23. Dirk Nowitzki questions Dallas’ rebuilding plans

    Jan 7, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Dallas Mavericks

    Dallas won the NBA title in 2011. But they were not built like the Heat team that they knocked off, nor the up-and-coming Thunder — teams of improving superstars. The Mavs had their aging superstar and a supporting cast that came together perfectly for them. It would have been difficult for Dallas to repeat. So…

  24. Eric Gordon is back, hits and-1 game winner vs. Dallas (VIDEO)

    Jan 6, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    That is how you start to win back the fans in New Orleans. Eric Gordon is back from his knee surgery and showing the Hornets what they were missing — their offense is just much better when the young guard they got as the highlight of the Chris Paul trade is back on the floor.…

  25. Chris Paul says Warriors acted like ‘they won the NBA Finals’ last time they beat Clippers in L.A.

    Jan 6, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    BKN-CLIPPERS-WARRIORS

    The Warriors have been a nice surprise in the West this season, and with All-Star caliber performances from both Stephen Curry and David Lee for the bulk of the season, they were able to beat an equally surprising Clippers team in each of their first two meetings. The third meeting, however, was all Clippers. A…
