    Jan 17, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Welcome to our 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). Portland’s 166 game sellout streak is in danger of coming to an end. Which speaks more to the condensed schedule and the economy than it does…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kobe passed with the game on the line

    Jan 17, 2012, 3:38 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom, Kobe Bryant,

    What you missed while trying to figure out how to pay off your $44 million hospital bill…. Thunder 97, Celtics 88: Boston’s fifth loss in a row was our game of the night. Lakers 73, Mavericks 70: The Lakers won this game — and were the better shooting team — hitting 38.2 percent of their…

  3. Report: Dwight Howard adds Clippers to list of places he’d sign

    Jan 16, 2012, 6:48 PM EDT

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    Dwight Howard with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul? Take that Miami. This would be the new Big Three. Howard apparently likes the idea — almost as much as Clippers fans. No matter how unlikely it is in reality. Howard has added the Clippers to the list of teams he would sign an extension with, reports…

  4. Phil Jackson reached out to Lamar Odom to help

    Jan 16, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Things are not going well for Lamar Odom, on or off the court. Things were bad enough off the court he considered taking a year off — and that was before the Lakers tried to trade him. It was his wife Khloe Kardashian that encouraged him to get back out there. Off the court issues…

  5. Injury update: ‘Melo to play; Rose, CP3 to sit on Monday

    Jan 16, 2012, 1:21 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Just a quick injury update on a couple NBA stars for your Monday: • Derrick Rose is out as his Bulls face off against the Grizzlies in Memphis. His injured toe is still giving him trouble, here is the quote via K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune. “Almost every game, I jam it. By the…

  7. Kyrie Irving might play for Australia in Olympics

    Jan 16, 2012, 12:06 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Here’s something I didn’t know about Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving — he has dual citizenship in the United States and Australia. He was born down under while his father was playing professional basketball there. Which means Irving has a choice to make in the next few weeks — does he want to play for…

  8. Monday And-1 links: Schedule wearing everyone down

    Jan 16, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to our 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). Is fatigue setting in for the Chicago Bulls? Maybe a little, but it is the same for every team. Yao Ming is getting into politics in…

  9. Full slate of NBA on tap for Martin Luther King day

    Jan 16, 2012, 10:51 AM EDT

    martin-luther-king-jr

    The NBA has tried to make Martin Luther King Day it’s sporting day — and it’s a good fit (well as good as any sporting attempt to claim the day). The NBA has become a league about inclusion on a lot of levels: If you can ball well enough it doesn’t matter if you are…

  10. Kobe says guys most like him: Derrick Rose, Chris Paul

    Jan 16, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derrick Rose

    Kobe Bryant is the guy with the rep as the toughest dog in the junkyard. Deservedly so. Which led to this interesting comment he made after the Clippers knocked off the Lakers Saturday night, via ESPNLosAngeles.com. “The game just gets easier with Chris Paul,” Bryant said before comparing himself to Paul. “He’s a dog. He’s…

  11. Caron Butler nearly returned to Miami

    Jan 15, 2012, 10:26 PM EDT

    Clippers' Butler tries to strip the ball from Lakers shooting guard Bryant during NBA preseason basketball game in Los Angeles

    Caron Butler was part of a pretty special team in Miami. It featured Dwyane Wade in his rookie season, Lamar Odom, and Butler. It was a young, athletic team with players starting to come into their own. They upset the Hornets in the first round and then gave the Pacers a run in the second…

  12. Chris Paul injury forces Clippers to call-up Courtney Fortson from NBA Development League

    Jan 15, 2012, 9:10 PM EDT

    Courtney Fortson

    Chris Paul suffered a strained hamstring in the Los Angeles Clippers’ 102-94 victory on Saturday night and, while the injury isn’t expected to keep him out for long, the team has a plan in place until their All-Star point guard returns to full strength. That contingency plan comes with the name Courtney Fortson, a waterbug-type…

  13. Clippers showing a lot of room for improvement… and still winning

    Jan 15, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Chris Paul is still trying to get his guys to know what he wants them to do. Chauncey Billups is still firing away without enough consideration and dribbling like he’s the point guard at times. Caron Butler is still finding his legs. DeAndre Jordan is still adapting to being the anchor of the defense down…

  14. Chis Paul strains hamstring in win over Lakers

    Jan 15, 2012, 2:09 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    During the Clippers’ 102-94 win over the Lakers Saturday night, while Kobe Bryant was shooting his way out of an early game slump on his way to 42 points on 28 shots, Chris Paul was slicing and dicing for 33 of his own on 22 shots. Paul was a monster against the Lakers, and the…

    Jan 14, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Jan 14, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New York Knicks

    On top of Dwyane Wade‘s ankle injury, Marcus Camby also suffered a sprained wheel and will probably miss some time.

  17. Video: Top 10 plays from Heat vs. Clippers

    Jan 13, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Yes, I know the game was a couple of days ago, but what do you want to watch — Blake Griffin and LeBron James or a parade of guys going to the free throw line from Thursday? Exactly. D’Andre Jordan is all over this highlight mix with blocked shots. You can decide for yourself if…

  18. Rudy Gay says he got Team USA invitation

    Jan 13, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Grizzlies Basketball

    The invitations are going out from USA Basketball to players who will be considered to make up Team USA at the London Olympics this summer. We showed you the initial reported list, Memphis’ Rudy Gay wasn’t on it. But he told the Commercial Appeals he got an invite. USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo called him…

  19. Winderman: League needs to clarify questionable calls for all teams, not just the Heat

    Jan 12, 2012, 10:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    By now you’ve read how @NBAOfficial confirmed what was apparent from the moment LeBron James went in six different directions (with six different steps) after giving up his dribble late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s overtime loss to the Clippers: That he traveled before he received a bailout foul call, one that enabled him…

  20. Chris Bosh would like Dwyane Wade taking the last shot

    Jan 12, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Recently, Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh was interviewed by GQ’s Mark Anthony Green, and he had some interesting (and relevant) things to say about who should be taking a hypothetical “last shot” for the Heat in a close game: GQ: Quick hypothetical, toes aside: Let’s say the game was tied. 10 seconds left. You had…

  21. Dwight Howard leads everyone in first All-Star ballot returns

    Jan 12, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    You didn’t love Dwight Howard as much as Derrick Rose and LeBron James when it came time to award the MVP last year (I know you didn’t get to vote on that, neither did I, but sentiment on this site ran heavy to Rose among commenters). But you love him now. Howard, the Magic’s center,…

  22. Doc Rivers: Boston is Rajon Rondo’s team now

    Jan 12, 2012, 10:37 AM EDT

    Celtics' Garnett talks with Rondo during a time out against Knicks in the second half during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Rajon Rondo is playing better than Kevin Garnett, better than Paul Pierce, better than Ray Allen this season. This is no longer 2008 where the Celtics were the “Big 3” with the young Rondo as the apprentice. Coach Doc Rivers doesn’t see it that way, he told A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. “This is his…

  23. Video: Dunks galore when Heat meet Clippers

    Jan 12, 2012, 9:15 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Joel Anthony

    The game itself was a pretty sloppy — like so many games this young, condensed season — but the Clippers and the Heat certainly brought the dunks and the highlights. So we thought we’d pass on a few from Blake Griffin and LeBron James. Enjoy.  

  24. Andre Miller wants to start somewhere, not back up Lawson

    Jan 12, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Shannon Brown, Marcin Gortat, Andre Miller

    Ty Lawson is the starting point guard on the Denver Nuggets. Which is how it should be as he is the best point guard on the Denver Nuggets. But veteran Andre Miller thinks he should be starting somewhere,  he told Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. And if the free agent to be can’t do that…

  25. LeBron finally aggressive late, but Clippers hand Heat another loss

    Jan 12, 2012, 3:19 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Chris Bosh

    Last year’s “it” team faced off against this year’s “it” squad and fans from both sides got what they wanted. Sort of. They both got a wildly entertaining contest that had the intensity of May. But it came wrapped in a game where it looked like both teams were on the second night of a…
