  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Sixers are legit

    Feb 2, 2012, 5:52 AM EDT

    iguodala

    What you missed while rock climbing with your 2-year-old strapped to your back… Sixers 98, Bulls 82: The 76ers are legit. That fast start wasn’t the soft schedule, they are a quality squad. Good ball movement will beat even the best defense, and that’s what the story was here. They have balance — five guys…

  2. Pau Gasol says players saying he’s soft just talking, jealous

    Feb 1, 2012, 7:02 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol

    When at the end of the Lakers win over the Clippers last week Pau Gasol reached out and rubbed Chris Paul’s head and Paul took offense, he turns at one point to Kobe and says, “he’s soft.” Gasol has been hearing the soft thing since before he was drafted. From coaches, players (Kendrick Perkins, Amare…

  3. Kevin Durant calls monster Griffin dunk “a layup”

    Feb 1, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin Clippers Thunder

    Kevin Durant was not very talkative after his Thunder squad got their heads handed to them by the Clippers Monday night. Not surprisingly. The entire Thunder team was frustrated. After the game a reporter asked Durant if he got a good look at that Blake Griffin’s monster dunk over Kendrick Perkins. He responded, “I don’t…

  4. Lakers, Clippers, Heat among teams in Kenyon Martin chase

    Feb 1, 2012, 10:08 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    In a few weeks, the Chinese Basketball Association season will come to an end and a few quality free agents — Kenyon Martin, Wilson Chandler and J.R. Smith — will alter the balance of power in the NBA. Martin (who left his team and is stateside but cannot sign until the season ends over there)…

  5. Winderman: Bulls should look at Knicks before going all-in for Dwight Howard

    Jan 31, 2012, 4:04 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Ah, the mega-trade, the all-for-one and the hope that the one is the end-all. As the Magic continue to stagger, and as it becomes clearer that Dwight Howard did not sign up for this, the only remaining issue seems to be how “all in” a trade partner might go. And that, to a degree, brings…

  6. Video: Which was better, Griffin’s Mozgov or Perkins dunk?

    Jan 31, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    griffin_dunk

    They have similarities. Both came off a wing pick-and-roll where the defense went with the point guard. Both were over a tall man wearing blue. But which was better, Blake Griffin‘s dunk over Timofey Mozgov last year or his throwdown over Kendrick Perkins Monday night? I vote Perkins, because he tried to defend it. But…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Orlando with another bad outing

    Jan 31, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, J.J. Redick

    What you missed while realizing that Homeland Security is monitoring your tweets…. Clippers 112, Thunder 100: There was a lot more to this than just Blake Griffin dunking on Kendrick Perkins, which is why it was our game of the night. Sixers 74, Magic 69: The Magic were just terrible shooting the ball in this…

  8. Kendrick Perkins on Blake Griffin dunk: “It happens.”

    Jan 31, 2012, 3:20 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    For a guy who was all over YouTube and twitter as the latest victim of a monster Blake Griffin dunk, Kendrick Perkins was philosophical after the game. “It happens,” Perkins said in the corner of the Thunder locker room. “A the end of the day if you’re a shot blocker, you’re going to get dunked…

  9. When you mention contenders, consider the Clippers

    Jan 31, 2012, 2:45 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin Clippers Thunder

    Sunday night, the Clippers went into the thin air of Denver and knocked off the Nuggets, the deepest and most steady team in the West (with the second best record in the conference). Monday night they faced a rested Oklahoma City Thunder team and ran the team to best in the West out of the…

  10. Video: Dunk of the year, Blake Griffin destroys Perkins

    Jan 31, 2012, 12:20 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    In a season plus of insane Blake Griffin highlights, what he did to Kendrick Perkins of the Oklahoma City Thunder Monday night may be the baddest a– of them all. This was better than the dunk over Timofey Mozgov. First, because Perkins went up and tried to contest it. Second, because it is Kendrick Perkins,…

  11. Hornets find some interest in Kaman trade, but not much

    Jan 30, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman

    Chris Kaman is going to be sitting on the Hornets bench until he is traded. He could be sitting a while. The Hornets have gotten some calls from teams interested in acquiring the veteran center, reports the Times Picayune. That is different from saying those teams are making offers New Orleans has any interest in.…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kyrie Irving does not fear the moment

    Jan 30, 2012, 5:33 AM EDT

    Ray Allen Cleveland Cavaliers

    What you missed while waiting for Nadal and Djokovic to finish…. Heat 97, Bulls 93: LeBron James and Derrick Rose had moments of brilliance and key missed free throws in our game of the day. Cavaliers 88, Celtics 87: If you want to say that Boston choked, to ahead — if you give up a…

  13. Report: Hornets shopping center Chris Kaman

    Jan 27, 2012, 9:53 PM EDT

    Dell Demps, Chris Kaman

    When you heard that center Chris Kaman was a healthy scratch Wednesday, then again Friday night for the Hornets, you wondered what was up. That team is too devoid of talent to just sit a solid center. It’s not a question of effort, say what you will about Kaman he’s trying. Now we know —…

  14. Blake Griffin heads 2012 rookie deal extension class

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin slam dunks against Memphis Grizzlies Hamed Haddadi of Iran and Dante Cunningham during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook got theirs. Kevin Love got a deal, as did Danilo Gallinari. Eric Gordon and Brook Lopez did not. And nobody seriously considered giving Michael Beasley one. It’s the first extension to the rookie contract — the first chance for NBA players to make serious, serious money. But as we saw…

  15. Friday And-1 links: Would you bet on Giants/Knicks to pull a title double?

    Jan 27, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Tyson Chandler, Mike Bibby, Carmelo Anthony

    Here is our daily 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). From Bovada.lv, some Super Bowl prop bets: The odds of the Patriots winning the Super Bowl and the Celtics the NBA title in 2012: 40/1.…

  16. Clippers upend Memphis in battle of wanna be contenders

    Jan 27, 2012, 4:15 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    It wasn’t the prettiest thing you’ll ever see. No, I’m not talking about the ABA throwback uniforms…. well, those too. But I meant the game. Doesn’t matter, the Clippers will take it. In a battle of teams trying to ascend to contender status, the Clippers executed better down the stretch and won 98-91. Nobody with…

  17. Kobe Bryant doesn’t think the Clippers are a rival, but was proud of Lakers’ performance

    Jan 26, 2012, 6:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers picked up a 96-91 victory over their Staples Center roommates on Wednesday night, but don’t get it twisted: Kobe Bryant and Co. certainly don’t view a victory over the Clippers as a big win in a rivalry game. “Please,” Bryant said when asked about what the rivalry victory…

  18. Eric Gordon says of not reaching deal, “business is business”

    Jan 26, 2012, 5:15 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Eric Gordon rejected the Hornets for an extension to his rookie contract. Gordon is the centerpiece coming to New Orleans from the Chris Paul trade with the Clippers, but Gordon has only played two games with his new team due to a bruised knee. And it is now going to be at least three more…

  19. Chris Paul wants Pau Gasol to know he’s not his kid

    Jan 26, 2012, 1:27 PM EDT

    los-angeles-lakers, Kobe, Chris Paul, Pau Gasol, Clippers

    There is starting to be a real rivalry is Los Angeles. It showed up in a little end of game sequence from the Lakers win over the Clippers Wednesday night between Chris Paul and Pau Gasol. Chris Paul was walking near Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant and all were talking a little when Gasol reached…

  20. Video: Blake Griffin was a highlight reel against Lakers

    Jan 26, 2012, 9:06 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Blake Griffin had it going on against the Lakers — he was in rare highlight form. Even for him. So we’re bringing a few to you. It was more than just the dunks, by the way — Griffin was 6-of-9 from 10 feet out to the arc. He is far from consistent on his midrange…

  21. Gasol, Bryant end Lakers’ losing streak, spoil Paul’s return to the court

    Jan 26, 2012, 2:37 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol, DeAndre Jordan

    The Los Angeles Clippers held the lead over the Lakers for most of the game on Wednesday night, but were unable to put the game away at any point, and ended up succumbing to the Lakers because of Pau Gasol‘s aggressive play and yet another late-game takeover by a Mr. Kobe Bryant. The Clippers got…

  22. Eric Gordon rejects contract extension from Hornets

    Jan 26, 2012, 12:29 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman

    David Stern gave the Hornets brass the freedom to try and reach a deal with Eric Gordon, a four-year extension of his rookie deal. But whatever the money he approved was not enough, and he rejected a contract extension offer from the Hornets, reports the Associated Press. We don’t know what the offer was, so…

  23. Del Negro “expects” Paul to play against Lakers

    Jan 25, 2012, 10:35 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    According to the Los Angeles Times, Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro has announced that Chris Paul will start in tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers: Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said he “expects” Chris Paul to start Wednesday night against the Lakers in their designated home game at Staples Center. Paul had missed the…

  24. The Kobe System: Forbes says Bryant NBA’s top earner

    Jan 25, 2012, 9:10 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Miami Heat

    Apparently the Kobe System has taken him beyond success. You’re welcome. As part of their NBA financial breakdown on Wednesday, Forbes Magazine named the top earners in the NBA, based on both salary and endorsements. Not shockingly (and to the delight of Vanessa), Kobe Bryant tops the list at $53.2 million last year. Kobe made…

  25. LeBron James says Kyrie Irving reminds him of Chris Paul

    Jan 25, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    Kyrie Irving has been impressive this season. Sure, he was the No. 1 overall pick for the Cavaliers, so you had a feeling he wasn’t going to suck, but after he spent most of his one year at Duke injured we weren’t totally sure what to expect. He’s not the explosive athlete that Derrick Rose…
