  1. The Inbounds: Daryl Morey and the point of no return

    Jul 20, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Daryl Morey

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Someone asked me two weeks ago why it was that everyone thought Daryl Morey was so good at his job.…

  2. Where were all the draft day trades? Wait until free agency.

    Jun 29, 2012, 6:02 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Well, that was quieter than we expected. After all the buzz about seemingly every pick from No. 2 down to 60 being in play, there were only a handful of small trades on draft night. No Cleveland Cavaliers moving up the boards. No Josh Smith or Rudy Gay getting moved. Pau Gasol is still a…

  3. O.J. Mayo unrestricted free agent, Boston Celtics interested

    Jun 29, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    O.J. Mayo is on the open market. Memphis made qualifying offers to Marreese Speights and Darrell Arthur — they can now match any offers other teams make to those two — but chose not to make a similar offer to Mayo, tweets the Commercial Appeal. That makes the four-year veteran an unrestricted free agent. Any…

  4. Grizzlies owner: “We’re not looking to trade Rudy Gay”

    Jun 8, 2012, 1:51 PM EDT

    Grizzlies Basketball

    There have been more Rudy Gay trade rumors floating around than Charlie Sheen rumors. Gay is in the middle of a max deal that will pay him $16.5 million next season and while he is a good player he is not worth that much. The Grizzlies are already paying Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol big…

  5. Pau Gasol thinks Spain can win gold medal in London

    Jun 1, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    Pau Gasol Spain

    The conventional wisdom is that the gold medal game Aug. 12 in London will see the USA vs. Spain. Kobe Bryant vs. Pau Gasol. Kevin Love vs. Marc Gasol. The world’s two best teams facing off. Pau thinks Spain can win it. Of course, he said that to FIBA.com in a very Pau Gasol way.…

  6. Kevin Durant, LeBron James head All-NBA Teams

    May 24, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Here’s the problem with nitpicking the All-NBA teams — there are no bad players on any of the first three. You can argue if you want (and as I would) that LaMarcus Aldridge deserves a spot on the third team more than Carmelo Anthony or Dirk Nowitzki, but that doesn’t make the guys on the…

  7. LeBron, Ibaka lead NBA All-Defensive team voting

    May 23, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    Few things can be counted on for a consistent laugh like the NBA All-Defensive team voting. It is always a laugh. This year it didn’t disappoint — somebody voted for Carlos Boozer. Yes, that Carlos Boozer. For his defense. But no complaint about the top vote getter, LeBron James. He was a defensive force this…

  8. NBA Playoffs: Clippers dominate 4th quarter, win Game 7

    May 13, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Clips Griz Game 7

    Through 27 quarters of basketball, the Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers played each other to an absolute standstill. The two teams had traded blows throughout the playoffs, and the Clippers came into the final quarter of Game 7 with a 1-point lead in a hostile arena. Then, after 36 minutes of profoundly ugly basketball,…

  9. Clippers-Grizzlies Game 7: Somebody’s going to the second round, somebody’s going home

    May 13, 2012, 12:20 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers face off in Game 7 Sunday. Here are five things to watch. 1. At Least You’ve Got Your Health, Or Not: It’s become a pretty big deal that Blake Griffin has a sore knee (no ligament damage known of at this time) and that Chris Paul has a…

  10. Grizzlies steal Clippers’ script — come from behind to win, force Game 7

    May 12, 2012, 1:26 AM EDT

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    In the first four games of this series, Chris Paul owned the fourth quarter, while at the same time the Grizzlies would get away from their game plan of pounding the Clippers inside with Zach Randolph. It’s why Los Angeles had a 3-1 series lead. There will be a Game 7 Sunday because that script…

  11. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin to start for Clippers, may be limited

    May 11, 2012, 8:05 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    They will be out there, how effective they are remains to be seen. Both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will start for the Clippers despite suffering injuries in Game 5, coach Vinny Del Negro confirmed. However, he said he would monitor both and might limit their minutes depending on how they are moving and performing…

  12. Banged-up Clippers look to wrap up Grizzlies in Game 6

    May 11, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Clippers guard Paul and forward Griffin return to the court following an injury to Griffin against the Grizzlies during the second half of game five in the Western Conference quarterfinals of the 2012 NBA playoffs in Memphis

    For Memphis, Game 6 is must win. For the Clippers, it isn’t that (they are up 3-2) but it’s about as close as you can get, because if they have to go win Game 7 on the road they face climbing K2. It’s a big mountain. Which makes Game 6 in Los Angeles on Friday…

  13. Chris Paul, Blake Griffin injured; both expected to play Game 6

    May 10, 2012, 3:50 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin injury

    Please, no more injuries in these playoffs. The Clippers Blake Griffin and Chris Paul both suffered injuries in Los Angeles’ Game 5 loss to Memphis Wednesday — Griffin has a sprained knee after a fall under the basket, Paul aggravated a groin injury going for a rebound. Both will be re-evaluated on Thursday once the…

  14. Grizzlies impose their will, take game 5 from Clippers

    May 10, 2012, 1:01 AM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    With their backs to the wall, the Memphis Grizzlies played the exact game they needed to play to beat the Clippers, and now find themselves one road win away from a Game 7 on their home floor, where they were 26-7 in the regular season and are now 2-1 in the playoffs. The Grizzlies pounded…

  15. Once again Clippers/Grizzlies play it close. Once again Clips have too much Chris Paul.

    May 8, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Again it was physical and nasty game. Again it was close at the end. Again the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies fought like two evenly matched teams that just don’t like each other. This time it went all the way to overtime. And Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said it was the same thing that…

  16. The only series worth watching, Grizzlies try to get even with Clippers

    May 7, 2012, 6:32 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul celebrates with Griffin after Griffin scored against the Memphis Grizzlies during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    In a kind of washout of a first round of the NBA playoffs, the Clippers vs. Grizzlies has been the only series completely watchable for anyone other than diehard fans. (The Oklahoma City wins over Dallas were not bad, but that was a sweep.) This series saw Los Angeles come back from 27 down to…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Can the Clippers assert themselves in Game 3?

    May 5, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Two

    It’s as simple as this: if the Clippers hadn’t pulled off a miracle comeback in Game 1, they would be on the wrong side of a 2-0 deficit coming into Game 3. The Clippers have been dominated for 87 of the 96 minutes played in this series so far, and they desperately need to make…

  18. Thursday morning And-1 links: Plethora of playoff injury updates

    May 3, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Ray Allen

    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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Ray Allen says he feels good and will practice Thursday. I wouldn’t hold…

  19. Does Game 2 of Clippers/Grizzlies look like first 40 or last 8 of Game 1?

    May 2, 2012, 5:22 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers

    Any discussion of Game 2 between the Clippers and Grizzlies has to start at the end of Game 1, when a 28-3 run by Los Angeles led to an improbable comeback win. It was devastating to Memphis. Can the Grizzlies put that behind them and bounce back? If the Grizzlies can, will the Clippers be…

  20. Video: All the buckets of Clippers dramatic comeback

    Apr 30, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Mike Conley

    How did the Clippers do it? They went on a 28-3 run to close out Sunday night’s game and steal a dramatic 99-98 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. If you want to see how they did it, above you can see all the baskets of that run. There are some easy buckets inside and Nick…

  21. NBA Playoffs: Clippers end game on 28-3 run, win 99-98

    Apr 30, 2012, 12:37 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Zach Randolph

    With 9 minutes and 12 seconds remaining in Game 1 of the Grizzlies-Clippers series, O.J. Mayo hit a 3 to put the Grizzlies up by 24 points in front of their hometown crowd. The Grizzlies were doing everything perfectly: Mayo and Mike Conley were on fire from beyond the arc, the Clippers had no answers…

  22. NBA Playoff preview: Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Clippers

    Apr 27, 2012, 12:39 PM EDT

    Dante Cunningham, Blake Griffin

    SEASON RECORDS
 Grizzlies: 41-25 (4 seed) Clippers: 40-26 (5 seed) SEASON SERIES
 Clippers took it 2-1, with each team winning the games on its home court. Memphis won the most recent meeting April 9, 94-85. KEY INJURIES Memphis: Nothing serious. L.A. Clippers: Chris Paul is playing through a strained groin. The Clippers need him to…

  23. Peers vote Clippers’ Reggie Evans dirtiest player in league

    Apr 25, 2012, 12:53 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans, Jonas Jerebko

    Reggie Evans has long had a reputation as one of the league’s dirtiest players — just ask Chris Kaman. He can answer is a high-pitched voice. Sports Illustrated recently did its annual poll of NBA players (118 of them) and among the questions was “who is the dirtiest player in the NBA?” Evans won going…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Playoff picture starts to clear up

    Apr 24, 2012, 9:33 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets Armon Johnson and Anthony Morrow leave court for final time after NBA basketball game loss to Philadelphia 76ers in Newark

    What you missed while watching a cat fight off a black bear…  Sixers 105, Nets 87: With this win Philadelphia both spoiled the Nets final home game in New Jersey after 35 years and clinched themselves a playoff spot (likely the eight seed) in the East. They controlled the game pretty much the whole way,…

  25. Andrew Bynum skipping Olympics… so who is in for USA?

    Apr 23, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    When Dwight Howard went under the knife and sacrificed his summer, the speculation began — who gets his spot on Team USA for the London Olympics this summer? It pretty much guaranteed that Knicks big man Tyson Chandler is in now. He was on the bubble before, but now he is a must as the…
