    Feb 28, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul looks to get past defending Indiana Pacers' West and Pendergraph during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    The Clippers probably thought they had sealed a quality road win over the Pacers much earlier than they had, getting out to a lead of as many as 17 points with 5:38 remaining in regulation. But as they’ve done all season long, the Pacers refused to quit, and went on a furious 13-0 run in…

  2. Blake Griffin with the acrobatic left-handed throwdown against the Pacers (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Clippers were having no problem scoring inside against the Pacers on Thursday, but the points weren’t coming on the typical high-flying plays we’ve become accustomed to seeing from the Clippers this season. Midway through the third quarter, Blake Griffin changed all that. Griffin elevates and throws it down with the left hand, while being…

  3. Report: Four teams have conversations with Amundson

    Feb 28, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Lou Amundson

    Around this time of year, with the playoffs looming and growing closer, teams start to think about adding a little bit of veteran depth to the roster. Guys that will not get a lot of run but can be trusted in small roles, plus will be professional in practice and preparation. That’s where Louis Amundson…

  4. Kenyon Martin says it was humbling to be left on NBA sidelines

    Feb 28, 2013, 11:33 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Kenyon Martin was back on an NBA court Wednesday night, playing his first game as a member of the New York Knicks. He played just five minutes and had zeros across the box score, but with the news that Rasheed Wallace is out for the rest of the regular season (at least) the odds Martin…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Kings take Heat two overtimes

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    LeBron James,

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while scrolling through the Florida Man twitter feed…. Heat 141, Kings 129 (2OT): What looked like a blowout on paper ended up being the best game of the night. The Kings may deny it was a moral victory for them, but it was.…

  6. Blake Griffin put on a dunking exhibition against Bobcats (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Bismack Biyombo

    If you’re going to beat the Clippers, you have to take away their ability to get easy baskets. The Bobcat’s didn’t. Blake Griffin was catching lobs and throwing them down all night from Chris Paul against the Charlotte “defense” and that was one of a few reasons the Clippers cruised to a 106-84 win. Above…

  7. Carmelo Anthony won’t be suspended for hit to the head on Spencer Hawes (VIDEO)

    Feb 26, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Anthony reacts after being fouled by the Atlanta Hawks in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Midway through the third quarter of the Knicks’ win over the Sixers on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony apparently was done wrestling with Spencer Hawes. After the two were battling for position for most of the possession, and once the shot went up, Anthony smacked Hawes in the back of the head with his right hand, and…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Hot hot Heat move back to top spot

    Feb 25, 2013, 4:33 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like the Miami Heat have started to get focused and in the West it is the Spurs, Thunder and everyone else. The rest of the league has less than two months to state their case that they can knock one of those big three off. 1. Heat (40-14, last week ranked No. 2).…

  9. Report: Clippers owner vetoed Butler for Ariza trade

    Feb 25, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Los Angeles Clippers were looking ahead to the playoffs and thought they could use a perimeter player with length and a defensive mindset. So they set up a deal with the Washington Wizards that would have swapped Caron Butler for Trevor Ariza, according to David Aldridge at NBA.com. But the deal got shot down…

  10. Tony Parker tried hide injury from Popovich; expects to play Wednesday

    Feb 25, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili

    Tony Parker — having a career season where television pundits throw his name in the MVP conversation — didn’t want to sit out. He did Sunday anyway, missing the Spurs win over Phoenix, but only after his efforts to hide his triceps injury from coach Gregg Popovich fell short, reports Mike Monroe of he Express-News.…

  11. Carmelo Anthony says Kenyon Martin will help Knicks if he’s ‘locked in and focused’

    Feb 23, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Knicks signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract on Saturday, making the roster move that was reported to be in the works at the trade deadline official. That means Martin could be active when New York plays next, at home against the Sixers on Sunday. Carmelo Anthony played with Martin for several years in…

  12. Report: If Kevin Garnett wanted to join the Clippers, Chris Paul would have made it happen

    Feb 22, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    We know Kevin Garnett is intensely loyal, but Chris Paul and the Clippers certainly put that to the test at the deadline. Garnett’s situation was unique of other stars that didn’t get dealt at the deadline, mainly because of his no-trade clause. If he wanted to remain a Celtic, that was his prerogative. Despite what he…

  13. Clippers fan drains half-court shot, team’s lone highlight Thursday (VIDEO)

    Feb 22, 2013, 12:05 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    You can insert your own “good thing he didn’t have Chris Paul take this shot for him” joke here. I’m not going to go there, the headline was enough. But when a fan hits a halfcourt shot we’re going to show it to you. And this guy is rightfully pumped as he won a Dodge…

  14. Tony Parker, Spurs show Clippers what contender looks like

    Feb 22, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul reacts as San Antonio Spurs Parker gets past him during first quarter of NBA game in Los Angeles

    Last playoffs, in the second round, the Spurs swept the Clippers out 4-0. It was a beat down, but the kind improving teams like the Clippers are supposed to learn and grow from. Thursday night it didn’t look like the Clippers learned a thing. San Antonio’s execution exposed Los Angeles’ defense, the Clippers could get…

  15. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  16. Report: Knicks sign Kenyon Martin to 10-day contract

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:54 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Miami was interested, but the New York Knicks beat them to the man. The New York Knicks have signed Kenyon Martin to a 10-day contract, tweeted first by Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports and now confirmed by other sources. He steps into the roster spot created by the trade of Ronnie Brewer. The deal likely…

  18. Report: The Miami Heat are talking to Kenyon Martin

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Kenyon Martin has been waiting for his chance. After a respectable season with the Clippers last year — 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds a game — he wanted some mid-level money and multiple years at age 34. It didn’t come. Nothing came. After a while not even one-year deals for the veteran minimum were available.…

  19. Three Stars of the Night: Harden’s Revenge Game

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:30 AM EDT

    James Harden

    On a night where trade talk dominated the news, James Harden served up a reminder that there’s an awful lot that must be considered when making a deal. Who knows how much it mattered to Oklahoma City at the time, but trading James Harden to a perennially competitive Western Conference foe badly in need of such…

  20. Spurs’ Patty Mills shows off impressive towel-waving repertoire (VIDEO)

    Feb 20, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Patty Mills

    Patty Mills spends about 10 minutes a game on the floor for the Spurs, backing up Tony Parker at the point. Which leaves 38 minutes a game for towel waving. And the Australian has become quite good at it. He has a lot of moves and he named them. It may lack the irrational exuberance…

  21. Report: Celtics say they won’t trade Rajon Rondo

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    All reports regarding a team’s trade intentions at this time of year should be read very carefully until any deal is actually completed. But this one regarding what the Celtics are planning to do with Rajon Rondo as Thursday’s deadline approches seems as close as we can get to a true assurance. From Sam Amick…

  22. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  23. Tuesday And-1 Links: Kevin Garnett doing yoga. He’s centered.

    Feb 19, 2013, 7:11 PM EDT

    Celtics forward Garnett grins after a jump shot in the closing minutes in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta

    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. • We open with Kevin Garnett doing yoga. • Great stuff from before the…

  24. Report: Dwight Howard mocked Kobe Bryant in All-Star locker room

    Feb 19, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s start out right here — take this report with a grain of salt. Actually, a handful of kosher salt. I say that because there was no buzz about this in Houston. I say take the salt because every NBA reporter in America who breaks these kind of stories was in Houston and it leaked…

  25. The smaller deals: A trade rumor update as deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    We told you, the big deals we love to talk about are not as likely to happen this year. There’s a lot of buzz about the Celtics but if you were around Kevin Garnett at all All-Star weekend you saw a guy adamant he is not waiving he no trade clause. The Lakers are not…
