  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Memphis can flat out ball

    LeBron James, Marreese Speights

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thinking maybe you should lay off those breakfast sandwiches…. Lakers 103, Kings 90: The Lakers are 2-0 in the Bernie Bickerstaff era and all anybody wants to talk about is Phil Jackson. We break it all down right here. Grizzlies…

  4. 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…

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

    Nov 6, 2012, 4:42 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace, Tyson Chandler

    Our nightly recap of every game around the NBA. We catch you up on what you missed while you were finding out where Superman’s home planet Krypton actually was…. Spurs 101, Pacers 79: Don’t look now, but the Spurs are defending again this year. Which is how they crushed the Pacers. We broke it down.…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Report: Grizzlies Darrell Arthur fractures leg. Ugh.

    Sep 26, 2012, 6:17 PM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    UPDATE 6:17 pm: Good news, as fractures go this isn’t too bad. It is a non-displaced fracture that is going to keep him out of action for a few weeks, reports Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. With training camp opening in a week he will not be ready to go yet, but for the start of…

  11. Mark Cuban thinks O.J. Mayo can be star for Dallas. Of course he does.

    Sep 19, 2012, 2:50 AM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    Mark Cuban is better at selling his product — the Dallas Mavericks and the experience of being their fan — than just about any other owner out there. It’s part of how he turned that franchise around. Sure, he spent so they could be competitive on the court, but also he changed the game and…

  12. Tony Allen ‘guarantees’ he’ll be back for season opener, but what about next year?

    Sep 16, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    tony allen

    Memphis defensive pitbull guard-forward Tony Allen had minor surgery over the summer to repair cartilage in his knee. His recovery is going to run right up against the start of training camp, but Allen made it clear that he’ll be good to go for the season opener on Halloween vs. the Clippers. “I’m definitely getting myself back…

  13. The Inbounds: The NBA’s unintentional tribute to Don Nelson

    Sep 7, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Don Nelson was in the NBA long enough to be considered in about a hundred ways over the span of his most-winning career. Longevity comes with peaks and valleys, and Nelson had tons. From his prolific Bucks teams to the start of the Mavericks’ surge with Nowitzki, Finley, and Nash, to the 2007 We Believe…

  14. Ibaka unhappy with Spanish team, may skip Rio Olympics

    Aug 23, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Spanish centre Serge Ibaka catches the b

    Serge Ibaka looked pretty good in the gold medal game against the United States — he had 12 points and 9 rebounds, and he played 22 minutes. But apparently the minutes were an issue for Ibaka through the Olympics — he wanted more but found his role shrinking. And he is so ticked he may…

  15. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  16. Monday And-1 links: Looking at the Lakers offense with Howard

    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. • With all the hits Dwight Howard took on the public relations side lately,…

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    At the introductory press conference for Andrew Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, Bynum told the fans and media the following in response to a question about the increased load he’s likely to bear next season. “It’s going to be a lot more exciting and a lot more fun to know that everything’s going…

  18. Eleven guys who came out of London Olympics big winners

    Aug 13, 2012, 1:06 PM EDT

    US gold medalists LeBron James (R) and C

    The USA is the big winner in London — in our “winner take all” society they won the gold medal, they get the spoils. And no doubt they were the best team in the games. But a number of players came out of London as winners in the reputation game. Eric Freeman nailed a great…

  19. LeBron James and a golden transformation

    Aug 12, 2012, 12:45 PM EDT

    Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Tyson Chandler

    A year ago, LeBron James didn’t exist. After mourning in his house over the loss of the NBA Finals for several weeks, dealing with the way his entire world had been turned upside down, how the public had revolted against him, James was simply absent. He rarely made appearances if ever at the NBA-NBPA meetings…

  20. USA vs. Spain for the gold: We know how this is going to end

    Aug 11, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    US forward Carmelo Anthony (R) celebrate

    USA vs. Spain for the gold: We know how this is going to end. USA gold. Spain has some real talent — Pau Gasol and Marc Gasol team up to make what would be the best front line in the NBA (well, maybe not anymore) and they surround the brothers with smart, playmaking guards who…

  21. Spain gets another shot at Gold after dominant second half vs. Russia

    Aug 10, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol, Sergio Rodriguez

    There were questions about how good Spain could be because they had not been all that impressive in the Olympic tune-up games, then in group play they lost to Russia and Brazil (although the Brazil loss was more of a laydown). Then in the first half against Russia Spain played down to its worst, scoring…

  22. Did the Lakers just become the NBA’s best team? Looks like it.

    Aug 10, 2012, 12:57 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Four years ago at the trade deadline, the Los Angeles Lakers made what was considered a blockbuster move — they traded a package centered around Marc Gasol (although at the time we thought it was Kwame Brown) for Pau Gasol. Pairing him with Kobe Bryant led the Lakers to three straight finals and two NBA…

  23. France’s ugly finish (with Batum punching Navarro in groin) costs them in loss to Spain

    Aug 8, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 12 - Basketball

    After three quarters, this was shaping up to be a classic. And with less than seven minutes to go France led 57-54. Then the wheels came off for France. Actually, that’s too kind. France crashed and burned. They scored 6 points total in the fourth quarter and went scoreless for more than seven minutes. And…

  24. USA’s path to gold could feature rematch from 1972. Or 2008.

    Aug 7, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    US forward Carmelo Anthony (L)  and US f

    We have reached the medal round and if you look at the way the USA played the last two quarters against Argentina — pressure defense where they did not gamble, then LeBron James and Kevin Durant scoring — nobody can stop them. We’re just going to pretend the first two quarters didn’t happen. So what…

  25. Quick look at opening Olympic medal round games

    Aug 6, 2012, 10:26 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 10 - Basketball

    Finally, we are done with the “everyone gets to play” portion of Olympic basketball. Time to get on with it. Eight teams remain in the win-or-go home medal round tournament starting Wednesday. The matchups are set after Brazil knocked off Spain (with Spain sitting key players in the fourth) and a surprise that didn’t matter…
