  1. 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…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nets beat Celtics with TKO

    Nov 29, 2012, 3:07 AM EST

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

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

    Nov 27, 2012, 7:34 AM EST

    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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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.…

  15. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers, Celtics both lose; it’s not the ‘80s anymore

    Nov 22, 2012, 5:22 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Our nightly recap of the games from around the NBA. Or, what you missed while going out tonight because you have to deal with your family tomorrow… Thunder 117, Clippers 111 (OT): Nobody stops Chris Paul, but the Thunder did a better job of slowing him down than anyone has this season and that’s how…

  17. Three Stars of the Night, two Kevins, and one kiss

    Nov 22, 2012, 2:14 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant is guarded by Los Angeles Clippers' Griffin and Odom during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Just a monster 14-game slate this Wednesday night before Thanksgiving, so before we give you our Three Stars, let’s break off a few honorable mentions. In Boston, there was Tony Parker shredding the Celtics for 26 points and six assists on 12-of-17 shooting. In Miami, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade each had 28 points, but…

  18. Thunder 117, Clippers 111: A Chris Paul survival guide

    Nov 22, 2012, 1:44 AM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Chris Paul is terrifying, and he knows it. Paul doesn’t score just to score — he does it to establish the threat. When you’re 6-foot-nothing in a league filled with giants, you manipulate instead of overwhelm. Paul can have 6 points and it will feel like he’s dominating, just because he made his shadow look…

  19. Metta World Peace rubs Nets coach Avery Johnson’s head after hitting a three (VIDEO)

    Nov 21, 2012, 11:47 AM EST

    Metta World Peace

    Late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday night’s win over the Nets, Metta World Peace hit a three from the corner to cut the New Jersey lead to two. There was no celebration, no flexing, and no kissing of his own biceps after doing so. But he did have a little something for Avery Johnson…

  20. Jeremy Lin thinks he will still be an All-Star. Someday.

    Nov 21, 2012, 8:42 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Based on his play so far this season, Jeremy Lin doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star. He’s been below replacement level. Frankly, he’s looked a young point guard learning how to play in the league and finding his game. He’ll improve, but that’s a process. This year, if the fans don’t vote in Chris Paul…

  21. Doc Rivers says Darko “most likely” gone from Celtics

    Nov 20, 2012, 4:37 PM EST

    Darko Milicic

    With a sick mother back home and no playing time in Boston, reports surfaced on Monday that Darko Milicic had returned home to be close to his family and was considering staying there and not coming back. Doc Rivers basically confirmed that on Tuesday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. “Most likely, yes,” was C’s…

  22. Popovich calls Spurs soft and an “embarrassment” after loss

    Nov 20, 2012, 12:58 PM EST

    Gregg Popovich

    When it’s a grind-it-out game, the Spurs usually win. They expect to win. But Monday night the Clippers went into San Antonio, had an off night from their leading scorer (Jamal Crawford), had banged up starters, got into a defensive struggle and won. The Clippers ground down the Spurs, played good defense and made the…

  23. Video: Chris Paul hesitates, crosses, spins, then nails dagger for Clippers

    Nov 20, 2012, 8:41 AM EST

    Chris Paul

    The Spurs are too good to make things easy on the Clippers — we all expected this one to go down to the wire and we got just that. Up two with 30 seconds to go in the game Chris Paul had Tony Parker up on him and drove, used a hesitation move to create…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nuggets, Warriors win thrillers

    Nov 20, 2012, 2:26 AM EST

    Andre Miller, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being thankful you don’t live next door to the guy with 478 birds… Clippers 92, Spurs 87: The temptation is to say it’s too early to say the Clippers are legit contenders. And it is, but they have now beaten…

  25. Clippers 92, Spurs 87: Making a list, checking it twice

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:52 AM EST

    Matt Barnes, Manu Ginobili

    Doubting the legitimacy of the Los Angeles Clippers is not a new or particularly uncommon practice. Despite laying waste to the Grizzlies, Spurs, Lakers and Heat in convincing fashion already, there was a sense that this would be the first true test for the Clippers. They’d be out on the road, against the team that…
