  1. Quote of the Day: Dwight Howard says Lakers could still win title

    Apr 9, 2013, 3:38 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    “If we get into the playoffs, there’s no doubt in my mind and in any of our minds, that we can win a championship. It would be stupid of me to sit here and say to you [media] guys that if we make it to the playoffs, we’ll be out in the first round. I…

  2. Carmelo Anthony passes LeBron for top selling jersey

    Apr 9, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony reacts after scoring against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    LeBron James may be the best player in the NBA, but Carmelo Anthony is the biggest star on the biggest NBA stage — the scorer leading the best New York Knicks team in more than a decade — and that sells a lot of jerseys. Anthony moved past LeBron into the top spot in national…

    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 like some misguided fools like to argue college basketball is better than NBA basketball….…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Knicks climb up to No. 2

    Apr 8, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd

    Welcome to the penultimate PBT power rankings for the season. If you win 12 games in a row you can get the No. 2 spot, but if you asked me to pick who wins a seven game series between the Thunder and Knicks it would look different than this ranking. Same with the Spurs. But…

  5. Report: Hornets still looking to move Eric Gordon this summer

    Apr 8, 2013, 10:20 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets' Gordon reacts after a call by officials while his team took on the Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    At the trade deadline the New Orleans Hornets had some discussions about trades for shooting guard Eric Gordon, but nothing came of it. Not surprising — it’s not easy to move a guy on a max contract coming off knee surgery. But after an up and down season where he averaged 16.5 points on 40.2…

  6. Blake Griffin was dunking all over Lakers Sunday (VIDEO)

    Apr 8, 2013, 9:01 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin smiles after hitting a three-point shot against the Los Angeles Lakers during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Blake Griffin dunks on a lot of teams. Of course, it’s easy to say a lot of teams don’t have Dwight Howard protecting the rim and the Lakers shouldn’t allow this. The problem for the Lakers is their perimeter defense is so poor Howard is often trying to stop the guard driving in for a…

  7. Three Stars of the Night: Three All-Stars lead teams to wins

    Apr 8, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    This was a tough night to narrow the list to three, some guys with huge games miss the cut — Russell Westbrook with 36 points and a near triple-double, Nikola Vucevic with 21 points and 21 boards for the Magic. But there was a key theme to go with for the night — current or…

  8. Clippers clinch first division title in team history with win over Lakers

    Apr 7, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Clippers forward Griffin grabs a rebound as Lakers forward Gasol defends during first half NBA game in Los Angeles

    Division titles don’t mean a whole lot in the NBA these days. But for a Clippers franchise that has been mired in mediocrity or worse for the better part of its existence, clinching the first Pacific Division championship in franchise history with a runaway 109-95 win over a Lakers team with more than any of…

  9. Blake Griffin says Clippers shouldn’t hang division title banner at Staples Center

    Apr 6, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    lakers banners

    The Clippers are having one of their best seasons in franchise history, but unless it ends in the team’s first NBA title, Blake Griffin is among those who aren’t interested in putting up any banners at the Staples Center to commemorate the accomplishment. Having already reached the 50-win mark for the first time ever, the…

  10. Do Clippers have chemistry issues? Depends who you ask.

    Apr 5, 2013, 7:29 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    We need to acknowledge that this is a historic season for the Los Angeles Clippers — it is the franchise’s first time ever to 50 wins and first time ever it will win the Pacific Division. Some luck in the draft, some aggressive moves by management and owner Donald Sterling writing bigger checks has changed…

  11. DeAndre Jordan: Fans who question his devotion to improving free throws are ‘idiots’

    Apr 5, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    Knicks guard Kidd holds on to Clippers center Jordan from going to the basket during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    DeAndre Jordan, a career 43 percent free-throw shooter, is shooting 39 percent from the line this season. Via Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles TImes: “Yeah, I’m aware of it, but I also work on it,” Jordan said. “I could understand it if I just didn’t work on my free-throw shooting and I’m just going…

  12. Grant Hill says there’s a ‘strong chance’ he’ll retire after this season

    Apr 4, 2013, 9:47 PM EDT

    Grant Hill Clippers

    Grant Hill joined the Clippers last summer, after the one-year offer that was presented by the Suns was inferior to the two-year deal he received from Los Angeles. That second year may not end up mattering much after all, since Hill says he’s leaning toward retiring at the conclusion of this season. From Paul Coro…

  13. Brandon Knight’s rough month continues, blows open lay-up (VIDEO)

    Apr 4, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Brandon Knight, Kemba Walker

    Been a rough stretch recently for the Pistons’ Brandon Knight. First, he was on the wrong end of DeAndre Jordan’s big dunk. Then he sprained his ankle. The Pistons have won just two of their last 15 games. But they were in it late against the Celtics on Wednesday night when after a steal Knight…

  14. Kenneth Faried finishes half-court alley-oop from Andre Miller (VIDEO)

    Apr 4, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    The veteran Andre Miller may throw the best lob pass in the NBA right now. Chris Paul is right there, but Miller has a great court sense and is so accurate with his passes. Kenneth Faried can finish. If your nickname is “manimal” you better know how to dunk with authority. Combine them and you…

  15. Ryan Hollins ejected for placing headlock on Goran Dragic (VIDEO)

    Apr 4, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Often times when a play like this occurs, it’s a result of a lot of little things that have gone on through the course of a game that finally have come to a boiling point for a particular player. It’s just hard to see that being the case here, considering that Ryan Hollins played all…

  16. Baseline-to-baseline recaps: Carmelo’s 40 points lead Knicks to 10th straight victory

    Apr 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony reacts after scoring against Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while choosing sides in the battle between Richie Sambora and Jon Bon Jovi … Knicks 95, Hawks 82: The Knicks extended their league-best winning streak to 10 games on Wednesday, thanks to a dominant offensive performance from Carmelo Anthony for the second straight…

  17. Why are the Clippers vulnerable? Defense (or coaching)

    Apr 2, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Vinny Del Negro

    Before the season started what was the mantra about the Clippers on this site (and most others)? It’s all about the defense. With Chris Paul and Blake Griffin (who has a more diverse game than many fans give him credit for), plus Jamal Crawford off the bench, the Clippers were going to score points. A…

  18. John Wall admits a number of point guards are better than him, still wants to get paid

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    John Wall

    It remains one of the interesting questions of the NBA off-season: How much do the Wizards offer John Wall in a contract extension? The Wizards are going to make an offer and they’ve suggested it’s substantial. I think something close to Stephen Curry’s four year, $44 million seems about right. Since getting back and healthy…

  19. Caron Butler had the best tip-in of the season Monday (VIDEO)

    Apr 2, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    You don’t see as many tip-ins in the NBA anymore, mostly because guys like Blake Griffin don’t tip the ball in so much as throw it down with authority. But on a Griffin missed jumper at the end of the half Monday night Caron Butler made an impressive tip-in play — he got to a…

  20. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Pacers look good, Clippers…. meh

    Apr 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Roy Hibbert

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering why UFO reports are down…. Pacers 109, Clippers 106:After the Clippers loss over the weekend coach Vinny Del Negro ripped the team for hits energy. He could have said the same thing after this one. Roy Hibbert showed up ready to…

  21. Three Stars of the Night: Roy Hibbert looks good (against Clippers defense)

    Apr 2, 2013, 4:02 AM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Honorable mention tonight goes to the fans of the Toronto Raptors for the reception they gave Jose Calderon, and to the Rockets Omer Asik who had 22 points and 18 rebounds in a win. Third Star: Rudy Gay (34 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) He put up big numbers and did it shooting efficiently —…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: The streak is dead, the Heat not so much…

    Apr 1, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    350x-1

    Only two more power rankings after this, so we are starting to turn our view toward the playoffs. Which still feel like the Heat then everyone else. 1. Heat (58-15, last week ranked No. 1). A gutty performance by the Chicago Bulls ended the Heat win streak at 27. But that was a one-time performance,…

  23. Tim Duncan’s and-1 game winner beats Clippers (VIDEO)

    Mar 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    It was a well-designed play well executed. That is to say, it was vintage Spurs. Down 1 with :07 seconds left to the Clippers, the Spurs needed a last second shot and (with Manu Ginobili out) logic suggests they would turn to Tony Parker (who can create his own look). But while Parker tries to…

  24. Chauncey Billups out with groin strain, status for remainder of the season in doubt

    Mar 29, 2013, 11:27 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    The Clippers could certainly use the veteran and capable presence of Chauncey Billups as they finish the regular season, while heading into a postseason battle that could be extremely difficult if the team should end up as part of the 4-5 first round matchup. Billups has played just 20 games for the Clippers all season,…

  25. Chris Paul says Greivis Vasquez talks too much

    Mar 28, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Greivis Vasquez, Blake Griffin

    Chris Paul and Greivis Vasquez appeared to jaw at each other in the final seconds of the Clippers’ 105-91 win over the Hornets on Wednesday. After the game, Paul was interviewed on the court during the Hornets’ broadcast. “He just talk way too much, man,” Paul said. “He talk too much. I don’t – he…
