  1. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Jeremy Lin says what most of us knew: He shouldn’t be an All-Star

    Jan 17, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin is starting to play pretty well in Houston, there are more and more games where you can see how he will fit in with James Harden and what they are doing. He is not deserving to be an All-Star. When the All-Star starters are announced later Thursday night, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul…

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:35 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    There was a lot of frustration around the Atlanta Hawks Tuesday — the team had lost seven of their last nine games, their defense had been terrible and their offense had followed suit the last couple games. That frustration bubbled over in practice Tuesday, when Josh Smith was thrown out of practice and later suspended…

    Jan 16, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Rasheed Wallace reacts to a referee's call against the Chicago Bulls during the first half of their NBA game in Chicago

    Rasheed Wallace has been out a month now with what the team first called a “sore left foot” then later changed that to a “stress reaction” in his left foot. You’ve got to love the Knicks, they can’t even admit it’s a stress fracture when it’s a stress fracture because… who knows why? They’re the…

  8. Nets show real ball movement on fast break (VIDEO)

    Jan 16, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Brooklyn Nets

    Yes, there were a lot of fantastic highlights last night — Blake Griffin with a steal and another huge dunk, Terrence Ross with probably the best dunk of the night, and many more. But this was probably my favorite, because after the Robin Lopez block there is one dribble on a fast break all about…

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  11. Chris Paul to miss a second game for Clippers due to knee

    Jan 15, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    It was expected at first that Chris Paul would miss both games in Texas that the Clippers had this week — he bumped knees with J.J. Redick on Saturday and sat out Monday night with a bruised kneecap. He’s going to be out Tuesday night as well, tweets Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. That…

  12. “Bank of Cuban is open,” look for Dallas to be aggressive at deadline

    Jan 15, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban made a gamble — he stripped down his championship roster to go after a big time free agent, to restock a roster while Dirk Nowitizki’s championship window is still open. It didn’t work this summer — Deron Williams stayed in Brooklyn. It’s not likely to work next summer because people close to the…

  13. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

    Jan 15, 2013, 7:55 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz guard Hayward watches as Miami Heat forward James reacts to a call during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while getting sucked into the “Good Will Hunting” oral history… Thunder 102, Suns 90: Kevin Durant is really, really good. Not sure if you knew that. The Suns were given a first-hand reminder when KD dropped 41 on the Suns in their home…

  16. Chris Paul out for Clippers Monday vs. Grizzlies, maybe more

    Jan 14, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers may be the deepest team in the NBA, but that’s going to get a test Monday. And maybe a little more beyond that.

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, Nuggets climbing ranks

    Jan 14, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Chris Duhon, Earl Clark

    Each of the top five teams in last week’s ranking suffered losses, some pretty ugly losses. So, who bounced back and looked best after that? Oklahoma City, so they maintain the top spot. 1. Thunder (28-8, Last week ranked No. 1). Kevin Durant is a better playmaker than last year. Russell Westbrook a better floor…

    Jan 14, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Jan 13, 2013, 2:51 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    It wasn’t enough — the Orlando Magic snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 13-game home winning streak. Mostly because the Clippers defense — which has been stout all season — took the night off. But Blake Griffin had a big game for Los Angeles — 30 points on 15-of-22 shooting. Here are the highlights. Yes, there…

  22. Magic snap Clippers’ 13-game home winning streak

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:26 PM EDT

    Grant Hill, Josh McRoberts

    The Orlando Magic are just 13-23 on the season, but they have some surprising signature wins that give the fan base hope as the team rebuilds without a superstar on the roster, and with a first-year head coach running the show. Saturday afternoon’s come-from-behind 104-101 win over a Clippers team that held a share of…

  23. Grant Hill to make season debut for Clippers Saturday vs. Magic

    Grant Hill Clippers

    If you were looking for a reason to tune in for an afternoon contest between the Clippers and the Magic, Grant Hill making his season debut for Los Angeles is as good a reason as any. Hill was said to be a game time decision after practice on Friday, but Vinnie Del Negro told reporters…
