  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Clippers embarrass Sixers, coast to 45-point win

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:44 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Los Angeles Clippers won by 45 and it wasn’t that close. Seriously. Sunday night was just a perfect storm of everything going right for the Clippers and everything going wrong for the Sixers. This was a game where the Clippers were ahead 100-51 after three quarters and went on to win 123-78. Here are…

  11. Blake Griffin on the Dunk Contest: ‘It’s something I would never do again’

    Feb 9, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    blake griffin dunk contest

    Blake Griffin won the 2011 Dunk Contest by doing something that had never been done previously, and won’t be duplicated again. The man jumped over a car. While we can debate whether or not that sounds a lot more impressive than it actually was, the vibe at Staples Center was electric when the car was…

  12. Chris Paul to make his return for Clippers Sunday vs. Sixers

    Feb 8, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    chris paul

    Chris Paul suffered a shoulder injury back on Jan. 3 that has kept him sidelined ever since, but you wouldn’t know it the way the rest of the team has responded in his absence. The Clippers have put together a 12-6 record with Paul out, and heading into Friday night’s contest against the Raptors (which…

  13. Among Adam Silver’s priorities: Raising NBA age limit

    Feb 8, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kings vs. Raptors

    During the lockout, the issue of the NBA’s age limit was put to the side. The owners wanted to up the age to 20, the players wanted to do away with it again, and in the interest of getting a deal done it was tabled to later. It is still laying on the table. New…

  14. LeBron says he should be Defensive Player of the Year

    Feb 7, 2014, 12:55 PM EDT

    Heat vs. Spurs

    It’s going to be Roy Hibbert. If you were going to bet on one sure thing out of the NBA’s awards this season, you should bet on Roy Hibbert being named Defensive Player of the Year. More than Durant as MVP or Michael Carter-Williams as Rookie of the Year, Hibbert is a lock for DPOY.…

  15. Mario Chalmers fined $5,000 for flop against Blake Griffin (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:59 PM EDT

    chalmers

    That play from Wednesday night worked for Mario Chalmers — he drew and offensive foul on Blake Griffin. He also flopped — and that’s the second time this season he’s been caught flopping so the league came down on him with a $5,000 fine this season. Yes, a whopping $5,000. To be clear, do the…

  16. Giannis Antetokounmpo to compete in Skills Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Typically, rookies don’t get noticed. Typically, players from overseas need more time to build an American following. Typically, Milwaukee Bucks are ignored. Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely atypical. “The Greek Freak” has wowed fans all season with his long arms, diverse skillset and outward happiness. He’s been so impressive, he’ll be competing in Skills Challenge –…

  17. Heat, Clippers had “Dunkfest 2014″ Wednesday night (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:59 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers can put on show. LeBron James and the Miami Heat can throw it down with the best of them. When the two teams got together at Staples Center Wednesday night it was “Dunkfest 2014.” It was an amazing show of athleticism. The Miami Heat raced out early and…

  18. LeBron gets the impressive chasedown block against Clippers (VIDEO)

    Feb 6, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    Wednesday night’s contest between the Heat and the Clippers was so entertaining that we could honestly drop a half-dozen highlights here that would all be worthy of your time. Instead, we’ll focus on this defensive gem from LeBron James, who was able to close incredibly quickly and perfectly time his chasedown rejection of Darren Collison…

  19. Clippers should get Chris Paul back on court Sunday

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The Clippers have gone 11-6 since Chris Paul went out Jan. 3 with a separated shoulder. It’s been an impressive run, with Blake Griffin stepping up and showing off a more well-rounded game. In those 17 games the Clippers have averaged 111.7 points per 100 possessions, best in the NBA. It makes you wonder how…

  20. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  21. Wednesday night NBA grades: Dwight Howard looks like guy Rockets thought they signed

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:58 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering why anyone would live in a dumpster for a year, voluntarily…  Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets. The NBA game is in large part about exploiting mismatches. With all due respect to the solid season Miles Plumlee is having, him trying to cover Dwight Howard…

  22. Heat start hot then hang on to beat Clippers

    Feb 6, 2014, 3:13 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    This was a nationally televised against a top-four team in the West in the Clippers — these are the kind of games that shake the Heat out of their mid-season malaise. And when the Heat play like they did early Wednesday night it is a beautiful thing. Miami’s first quarter was as good as they…

  23. Wednesday And-1 Links: “The Justice League Goes Inside the NBA: All Star Edition” comic book exists

    Feb 5, 2014, 7:23 PM EDT

    Inside the NBA comic book

    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. • I LOVE that this exists. DC Comics has teamed with TNT’s “Inside the…

  24. Report: Clippers looking to trade Jared Dudley at trade deadline

    Feb 5, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    When they got him this summer, Jared Dudley seemed like a perfect fit for the Clippers — he can stretch the floor as a three-point shooter, is a smart veteran and plays solid team defense. The reality has been a less than perfect fit. Dudley’s three point shooting percentage is down (but still a very…

  25. The Extra Pass: Talking Blazers, Clippers, coaching with Bill and Luke Walton

    Feb 5, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Brewers v San Francisco Giants

    Portland Trail Blazers fans are not fair weathered. They have stuck with the franchise through some dark times. Now they are being rewarded — with LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard leading the way, Portland fans are getting to witness some of the best, most entertaining basketball Rip City has seen in more than a decade.…
