  1. Three Stars of the Night: Go-Go Goran and a Game-Winner

    Jan 25, 2013, 3:48 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    We had a pretty good slate of games on Thursday night, didn’t we? The Knicks grinded out a combined 14-for-44 showing from Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith for a tough win against the Celtics, the Raptors had a little late game magic of their own against Orlando, and in the nightcap, the Suns stayed undefeated…

  2. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

  3. 2013 NBA All-Star reserves announced

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…

  4. The Extra Pass: The New Roll Man

    Jan 24, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Stephen Curry, Blake Griffin, David Lee

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at how the pick-and-roll big man has evolved.  When Chris Paul joined Blake Griffin in Los Angeles, almost everyone believed they would form the most devastating pick-and-roll combination the…

  5. PBT’s NBA Mid-Season Awards: All hail Kevin Durant

    Jan 24, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    It’s the halfway point of the NBA season. To me having a serious discussion about end of season awards before this point is like discussing the 2016 presidential election today — it’s all speculation and wishful thinking. Now we have enough games to have a body of evidence and a discussion. So here are my…

  6. Wednesday And-1 Links: Justin Beiber meets Michael Jordan. And twitter explodes.

    Jan 23, 2013, 7:25 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan Justin Beiber

    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. • Justin Beiber — that would be 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend Celebrity Game MVP…

  7. Forbes: Knicks most valuable franchise, Kobe biggest earner

    Jan 23, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers are each worth more than $1 billion dollars. That is billion with a “B.” They are the first NBA franchises to pass that mark, reports Forbes Magazine in its latest valuation of NBA franchises. The Knicks are worth $1.1 billion, the Lakers $1 billion even. The average…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kyrie Irving outduels Rajon Rondo

    Jan 23, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Avery Bradley

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting five days for that goat cheese fire to butn itself out… Thunder 109, Clippers 98: This was a four-point game at the half, then Kevin Durant happened. The Clippers were without their star in Chris Paul — bruised knee — but…

  9. Caron Butler’s blocked shot knocks down referee (VIDEO)

    Jan 23, 2013, 3:22 AM EDT

    Derek Richardson

    It’s a little odd to type that Caron Butler blocked a Serge Ibaka shot (you just expect the reverse) but that’s not the strange part of this second quarter play. Butler had played good defense on Kevin Durant (he did that in the first half), forcing a pass to Ibaka. As Ibaka drove then rose…

  10. Kevin Durant delivers daggers as the Thunder roll over the Clippers

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:32 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    In a big road test against the Los Angeles Clippers for Western Conference supremacy, Kevin Durant was unproductive and almost non-existent to start the game. Those aren’t words you typically use to describe Durant at any point, but it was inexplicably true. The league’s leading scorer was quiet throughout the first quarter, scoring only one…

  11. Chris Paul out for Clippers in showdown with Thunder

    Jan 22, 2013, 9:54 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Well, this takes a little luster off what could have been the game of the week. Chris Paul will not suit up for the Clippers on Tuesday night against the Thunder, coach Vinny Del Negro confirmed before the game. It’s the right move for Los Angeles — Paul had missed three games with a bruised…

    Brooklyn Nets Joe Johnson celebrates with Brook Lopez after he shot three-point against New York Knicks in NBA game in New York

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what made Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia think that hat was a good choice at the inauguration…. Bulls 95, Lakers 83: Chicago is what Los Angeles is not — passionate, committed to the system, hustlers on every play and defenders. So,…

  14. Stephen Curry with the amazing pass to Jarrett Jack on the break (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2013, 8:32 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    In a day full of highlights, this might have been one of the best. Midway through the fourth quarter of a tight contest between the Clippers and the Warriors, Stephen Curry grabs the rebound and leads the fast break. He doesn’t get very far, though, before spotting a streaking Jarrett Jack. Curry stops at halfcourt,…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Clippers back on top, showdown with Thunder Tuesday

    Jan 21, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    BKN-CLIPPERS-WIZARDS

    No change in the top four teams, but really it feels like right now there is a top three teams with the Heat capable of being that good but not really choosing to all the time. 1. Clippers (32-9, last week ranked No. 2). Chris Paul sits out three games, Eric Bledsoe steps in and…

  17. Blake Griffin leads the break, finds DeAndre Jordan for the alley-oop slam (VIDEO)

    Jan 20, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    We can probably find some sick Blake Griffin highlights from just about every one of the Clippers’ games this season. But usually he’s on the receiving end of one of these plays, not the one leading the break and throwing the perfect pass. Midway through the third quarter of Saturday night’s win over the Wizards,…

  18. Vinny Del Negro sees trade rumors surrounding Eric Bledsoe as a positive

    Jan 20, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    BLEDSOE_ERIC

    When Chris Paul missed three straight games for the Clippers with a bruised right kneecap, the team didn’t miss him nearly as much as you might have thought. That’s because they have an athletic and capable backup in Eric Bledsoe, who started in place of Paul and had two above average performances in helping L.A.…

  19. After 11 straight All-Star selections, Nowitzki’s streak about to end

    Jan 20, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki reacts after hitting a shot against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Dirk Nowitzki missed the first third of the season with following knee surgery. Since he has returned he hasn’t been himself — 14 points a game on 41 percent shooting, with a PER right at the league average of 15. All of that has been just part of a disappointing season so far in Dallas.…

  20. Clippers send promotional material to coaches to try to get Jamal Crawford voted in as an All-Star

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Bosh

    The All-Star reserves will be announced this Thursday, and with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both already in as members of the Western Conference starting lineup, there isn’t a great possibility that another player from the Clippers will make it as the team’s third representative. But that isn’t stopping the Clippers organization from trying. With…

  21. Rubio wants Minnesota to stop using rash of injuries as excuse

    Jan 18, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    Injury-ravaged Minnesota looked across the court and saw the Los Angeles Clippers — a team without MVP candidate Chris Paul due to injury. But without him the Clippers this week are 3-0 with road wins against Memphis, Houston before coming to Minnesota. The Clippers just steamrolled the Timberwolves Thursday and made Minnesota’s complaining about injuries…

  23. Ugly gets uglier as the Clippers defeat the injury-riddled Timberwovles

    Jan 18, 2013, 12:26 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    It was easy to be excited for this one going in. Ricky Rubio is always must see TV, and Eric Bledsoe is capable of providing some serious fireworks. Pit the two against each other, throw in a few Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan jams, and you’ve got yourself a game, right? Well, not exactly. Bledsoe…

  24. 2013 NBA All-Star starters announced

    Jan 17, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    kobe all-star 2013

    The 2013 NBA All-Star starters were announced just after 7 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, and in the both the Eastern and Western conferences, there were no surprises. In the east, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Garnett were the frontcourt players voted in by the fans, and Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo were selected to…

  25. Gary Payton talks Lillard, D-Will and guarding Jordan

    Jan 17, 2013, 4:02 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    We look at today’s NBA as almost a new golden age of point guards — Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, Tony Parker, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and the list goes on and on. It’s a very different era from when Gary Payton was at the peak of his career. Back then Payton could body up on…
