    Kevin Garnett

    Kevin Garnett has said that this is his last All-Star game. He’ll be turning 37 soon, and this will be his 15th All-Star game. He knows his way around this whole spectacle. It’s the same party every year for him. As a gift for what might be his last appearance, Garnett fielded tons of questions…

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    You may remember hearing some rumblings about this a few weeks back, but apparently the interest hasn’t died down. The Celtics and Clippers have been rumored as potential trade partners before, and that makes some sense. Boston is going to need to rebuild at some point, and the Clippers have a chance at a title…

    BKN-NBA-CLIPPERS-LAKERS

    HOUSTON — Chris Paul is having one of his best overall seasons, leading a deep and talented Clippers team to top-tier status playing among the elite in the Western Conference. Paul’s importance as the main cog that keeps the Clippers machine running was spotlighted recently, when his team struggled with a record of just 2-7…

    Feb 15, 2013, 3:54 PM EDT

    Vince Carter Raptors

    HOUSTON — When NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest participant Eric Bledsoe was asked about his favorite dunk contest dunk he didn’t hesitate. “I think that dunk contest where Vince Carter did the 360,” Bledsoe said. That same answer came up over and over with young players — to them the legend of Michael Jordan or…

  5. Blake Griffin, Kobe Bryant exchange dunks (VIDEO)

    Blake Griffin

    Anytime the Clippers play, you expect to see one quality dunk from Blake Griffin at least. And for the Lakers lately, Kobe Bryant is the only one you can count on to make quality plays every game. So Thursday night they exchanged some huge dunks. I think Kobe got the best of this dunk contest.…

    Feb 15, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin

    The Lakers hosted the Clippers in the second half of the televised double-header on Thursday, and with the first game between the Thunder and the Heat running a little long, almost five minutes had gone by in the first quarter in Los Angeles before the national audience saw any of it. By the time TNT…

    Feb 14, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Trade speculation surrounding Josh Smith is in full swing. The Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs have been reported as potential landing spots, but there may not be a more attractive trading partner for the Hawks given their rebuilding process than the Houston Rockets. Despite lacking a “big name” who can be moved, Houston has…

  8. Clippers’ Ryan Hollins kicks Jeremy Lin while he’s down (VIDEO)

    BKN-NBA-ROCKETS-CLIPPERS

    Ryan Hollins, get out your checkbook, because that is going to cost you. Houston’s Jeremy got banged around pretty good Wednesday night. First came the play where he tweaked his wrist after getting knocked to the ground on a drive. That happens. But a few possessions later Lin stripped Ryan Hollins of the ball and…

  10. Carmelo amazed with LeBron’s run, but says don’t give him MVP yet

    Feb 13, 2013, 7:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony reacts in front of Los Angeles Clippers Jamal Crawford after three-point shot in NBA game in New York

    Carmelo Anthony is as impressed as everyone else with LeBron James’ historic run — six games in a row with more than 30 points and shooting better than 70 percent overall in that stretch. It’s getting LeBron mentioned in the same breath with Jordan. Which is jumping the gun a bit. And so is just…

  11. DeAndre Jordan airballs an alley-oop (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2013, 1:57 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    There were plenty of great Clippers highlights from their destruction of the Sixers on Monday, and this one’s great in its own way — it just didn’t happen to result in two points. It’s a little unfair to say DeAndre Jordan “airballed” this alley-oop attempt, even though technically that’s exactly what happened. He underestimated his…

  12. Clippers want Lamar Odom to be more of a scorer

    Feb 12, 2013, 12:14 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Lamar Odom has always been a maddening puzzle for fans of the teams he’s played for over the years to try and figure out. He seemingly has all the tools to be a dominant player on both ends of the floor, yet has only shows it in flashes throughout his NBA career that is now…

  13. Nets’ GM King believes in Deron Williams. Not that he has a choice.

    Feb 12, 2013, 10:48 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    The Nets are invested in Deron Williams. He was the first star they got, trading with the Utah Jazz in a surprise move before they had moved out of New Jersey. They worked hard to keep him and gave him a max contract. Now he’s finally got some healthy other stars around him such as…

  16. Clippers took Lob City show to Philadelphia (VIDEO)

    Feb 12, 2013, 1:26 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    When the Clippers have got it going — and facing a defense not quick enough or long enough to stop them — they can put on the best show in the NBA. That show came to Philadelphia on Monday and while the hometown fans watched their team get rolled (they could have used someone like…

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed wondering again why you watch the Grammy’s every year… Heat 107, Lakers 97: The Lakers are playing better, they are starting to figure things out. But that’s still a process. And when the Heat cranked it up in the fourth quarter they pulled…

  19. Blake Griffin throws down the alley-oop against the Knicks (VIDEO)

    Feb 10, 2013, 6:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    The Clippers had it working from the very beginning during their win over the Knicks on Sunday, and Blake Griffin helped get things going with this highlight slam off of the perfect alley-oop pass from Lamar Odom. The curious part about this is that Tyson Chandler, a strong defender who’s made a career on the…

  20. Clippers bench, Chris Paul too much for Carmelo Anthony alone in L.A. win

    Feb 10, 2013, 4:31 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Carmelo Anthony tried — he took over the game in the third quarter, put up 42 points for the game and lifted the Knicks to the lead. But the Clippers took control of the game again when their bench returned to start the fourth — Los Angeles got 48 points from their bench on the…

  21. Another report Chris Paul very likely to re-sign with Clippers

    Feb 9, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is simply put the best player available as a free agent this summer. And while teams will call, the buzz around the league is none of them think they have a shot at him. Everyone is pretty convinced he will re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers. That includes the Clippers. Marc Stein wrote…

  22. Wade, Bosh, Allen all could be out for Heat vs. Clippers Friday

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade drives between New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    If you paid a lot of money to see the Heat and Clippers in an All-Star battle Friday night, I’d hold my breath. The good news is the Clippers could be getting Chris Paul back — their MVP candidate is a game time decision, but it is thought he will play. Not so much for…

    Feb 7, 2013, 7:14 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Utah’s Jeremy Evans — the human pogo stick — will be back to defend his All-Star weekend Sprite Dunk Contest title. But a repeat will not be easy because the NBA has lined up some high flyers to step up to challenge him — Gerald Green of the Pacers, James White of the Knicks, Eric…

  25. The Dallas Mavericks are growing mediocre beards

    Feb 7, 2013, 3:07 PM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    You’ve probably heard of guys growing letting their facial hair grow for the postseason. The Clippers did it last year with hilarious results — Blake Griffin made Paul Pierce‘s beard look lustrous and full by comparison. The tradition of playoff beards has been around a long time in all sports, but the Dallas Mavericks are…
