  1. Reggie Evans not happy Grizzlies put starters back in during blowout win over Nets

    Jan 26, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Reggie Evans, Zach Randolph

    The Grizzlies took care of the Nets on Friday, and did so swiftly and easily. The game was over by halftime, when Memphis had built a 67-44 lead over a Brooklyn team that simply didn’t have it in them to compete on this night. Just because the Nets had packed it in late in the…

  2. 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,…

    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…

  4. 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…

  5. Dwight Howard says he was immature, promises to “bring it”

    Jan 23, 2013, 4:54 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard came out at shootaround Wednesday, before the Lakers take on the Memphis Grizzlies in Tennessee, and said all the right things. You’ll have to excuse Lakers fans who will want to see action before taking his word on it. However, following a contentious team-only meeting where Kobe Bryant was blunt with Dwight Howard…

  6. Cavaliers, Grizzlies trade Speights and Selby for Leuer

    Jan 22, 2013, 9:08 AM EDT

    Marreese Speights

    Memphis has been looking for a way to get under the luxury tax line for this season — they may have just found it without shipping Rudy Gay out the door. Brian Windhorst of ESPN broke news of a trade that could benefit both teams on twitter, then Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports confirmed it…

  7. Thibodeau benches Noah for fourth, overtime, and nobody’s talking

    Jan 20, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Here are the facts: Taj Gibson subbed out Joakim Noah with 5:53 left in the third quarter. At that point the Bulls center had 10 points and five rebounds and had played admirably against Marc Gasol and the big front line of Memphis. Noah never got back in the game — Tom Thibodeau benched him…

  8. Grizzlies hold on for overtime win over shorthanded Bulls

    Jan 20, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    It certainly wasn’t pretty, but the Grizzlies will take the result. Memphis was able to hold off a shorthanded Bulls team in overtime for the 85-82 win in Chicago on Saturday, thanks to some timely rebounding from Zach Randolph and some well-placed shot making from Marc Gasol. Chicago was without its leading scorer in Luol…

  9. Report: Grizzlies testing waters for potential Rudy Gay trade

    Jan 4, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    Memphis is one of those “maybe if everything goes right” contenders. They are not as talented as Oklahoma City or the Los Angeles Clippers, but they have a dominating front line with Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. In the last couple weeks their elite defense has taken a step back, their already unimpressive offense has…

  10. Latest All-Star voting returns in, Charles Barkley will not be happy

    Jan 3, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

    APTOPIX NBA All Star Basketball

    Apparently, you folks have no concern whatsoever for Charles Barkley’s feelings. The day after Barkley said Dwight Howard and Kevin Garnett have not played well enough to be part of the All-Star starters, they are both in. Howard solidly, he’s a lock, and Garnett has stretched out his lead over Chris Bosh. Basically, nothing has…

  11. No changes atop latest All-Star voting, but Lin and Bosh could sneak in

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — The Suns would have taken a win any way it might have come, after losing seven straight and being faced with the task of taking down a Grizzlies team that has gotten off to a strong start this season, and had just beaten this Phoenix team in Memphis a mere seven days ago.…

    Nov 24, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried, Marc Gasol

    Marc Gasol was called for a double-dribble violation late in the fourth quarter of the Grizzlies win over the Lakers on Friday. He swore he didn’t do it, but the replay showed otherwise, which is no big deal … except for the way he gestured to the referee while attempting to proclaim his innocence. Gasol…

  15. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  17. Grizzlies knock Knicks from ranks of undefeated

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:32 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Rasheed Wallace

    Here’s a good one for your friends who think they know basketball, but maybe don’t follow the day-to-day happenings of the NBA all that closely. The best record in basketball now belongs to the Memphis Grizzlies, as they had no trouble taking care of the previously undefeated Knicks by a final of 105-95. New York…

  18. Grizzlies continue impressive start with road win over Thunder

    Nov 14, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Marc Gasol Zach Randolph

    The Memphis Grizzlies look like a team ready to compete in the postseason. The Thunder look like a team still searching for answers. The result of the meeting between these two teams reflected that on Wednesday, as Memphis had little trouble in cruising to a convincing 107-97 win in Oklahoma City. When we last saw…

  20. Three Stars of the Night: Two big names and a role player

    Nov 12, 2012, 1:05 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, James Johnson

    On any given night, anyone can step up to be the difference maker that leads his team to a victory. Typically, it’s the team’s best player or one of their key starters that does it. That’s why they’re paid the big bucks, after all. Sometimes, though, it’s a role player that comes out hitting shots…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

  22. Three Stars of the Night: When Duty Calls

    Nov 6, 2012, 3:07 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol Zach Randolph

    Points are put on a pedestal in the NBA, so what happens when a team loses its big scorer to injury or simply doesn’t have one on the roster? Other guys step up. We tend to forget, but just about every NBA player (earmuffs, Reggie Evans) can score when given enough chances. It might not…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Lakers defense sucks, too

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts….

  24. NBA Season Preview: Memphis Grizzlies

    Oct 23, 2012, 3:06 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Last season: Memphis had hoped to turn a magical second-round playoff run (which included pushing OKC to seven games) into momentum for the next season. They were still good — 41-25, which earned them the four seed — but when Zach Randolph went out with knee issues the Grizzlies were not the same. He came…

  25. Even in preseason, risks of small ball begin to show

    Oct 15, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Ray Allen

    In Shanghai we saw it — Chris Bosh and the assortment of other Heat centers could do little to slow the bigger, stronger DeAndre Jordan short of fouling him. With Chris Paul feeding him the rock, Jordan shot 8-for-8 in a Clippers win. In Hartford we saw it — the Knicks went to the Raymond…
