    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while checking out what porn stars look like without makeup… Heat 98, Hawks 81: If Tuesday night was any indication, the Hawks should want to win enough games from here on out to avoid slipping to the eighth seed and getting the Heat…

  2. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Celtics 11-0 run closes out Pacers

    Mar 7, 2013, 9:52 AM EDT

    Jason Terry, Jordan Crawford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering what live is like for a poor sultan…. Lakers 108, Hornets 102: The Lakers were down 25 in the third quarter, 18 entering the fourth. But then Kobe Bryant took over the offense and Dwight Howard the defense, the Hornets fell…

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the wildest ending to a high school state championship game you will ever see… Lakers 99, Hawks 98: It took a phenomenal performance down the stretch from Kobe Bryant, after the Lakers gave back all of a 16-point third quarter lead…

  4. Heat overcome off night from LeBron to beat Grizzlies for 13th straight win

    Mar 2, 2013, 12:05 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James dribbles against Memphis Grizzlies' Pondexter in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    One streak was going to come to an end in Miami on Friday, with the Grizzlies having won eight in a row and the Heat riding a 12-game winning streak of their own. It wasn’t surprising that the Heat were the ones that left victorious by pulling away late for a 98-91 victory, the team’s…

  5. Carlesimo admits benching Lopez against Grizzlies was mistake

    Feb 26, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez, P.J. Carlesimo

    Brook Lopez was in a mini-slump following All-Star Weekend in Houston. That happens. The players are pulled 50 different directions during the day and then there are parties every night. But a week after that game, on Sunday night, the Nets were locked in a low-scoring affair with the Memphis Grizzlies, a team with a…

  6. Grizzlies, multiple teams in on J.J. Redick trade talks

    Feb 20, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Bobcats Magic Basketball

    There has never been anyone more likely to be moved at the deadline than J.J. Redick. It’s not that they don’t want to re-sign the free agent and keep him, it’s that contending teams that need a shooter will play more for him next summer than the Magic are willing to pay. So they need…

  7. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Lakers win, but it’s not pretty

    Feb 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while reading up on the gory, unromantic history of Valentines Day… Lakers 91, Suns 85: The Lakers won this one eventually, but as has been the case plenty of times throughout the season, they made it unnecessarily difficult on themselves. L.A. managed to…

  8. Warriors have ‘no panic’ after 25-point loss in Dallas, their fourth straight

    Feb 10, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    The Warriors have been a nice surprise this season, playing better than most expected while winning enough games early to be in solid playoff position for essentially the entire year. Things have changed recently, with the team suffering its fourth straight loss on Saturday at the hands of the Mavericks, and not really competing very…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers win with offense. Again.

    Feb 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Al Horford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching a toddler drain trick shot after trick shot… Lakers 92, Nets 83: Up until this game I was still sure the Lakers were not a playoff team, that the recent streak would not be enough for the hole they dug. But…

  10. Marc Gasol changes mind mid-air, makes twisting hook and-1 (VIDEO)

    Feb 1, 2013, 8:35 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Russell Westbrook, Serge Ibaka

    This was a smart play by Marc Gasol. His plan was clearly to make a kick-out pass, but once he was fouled and knew he had continuation he changed his mind mid-air (as much as Gasol gets air) and threw the ball at the basket. That is completely legal. And smart. Getting the shot to…

  11. Thunder look cool (except for Westbrook who got hot) in easy win over Grizzlies

    Feb 1, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless tries to defend against against Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    It was a perfect storm of bad for Memphis — they trade their leading scorer Rudy Gay, who is out shopping for a much more extensive winter wardrobe, but his replacements (Tayshaun Prince, Ed Davis and Austin Daye) have yet to arrive. Then you are on the road against a rested Oklahoma City team who…

  12. UPDATED Report: Rudy Gay to Toronto trade nearly done, Detroit may be third team

    Jan 30, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    UPDATE #2, 6:04 pm: Here is some twitter confirmation that the deal is close from one of the participants in the trade: Calderon just told us it is close to done but hasn't heard official. He is putting on uniform— Ryan Wolstat (@WolstatSun) January 30, 2013 Memphis may have found their third team according to…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Crazy endings all across the league

    Jan 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    George Hill, Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were getting your last Whopper Jr. — and I mean last Whopper Jr…. Nuggets 102, Pacers 101: It was the last game of a six-game road trip for the Pacers against an up-tempo Nuggets squad, and Indy was down 13 in…

  14. Three Stars of the Night: All Purpose Big Man Edition

    Jan 29, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Darrell Arthur

    Defense. Rebounding. Points in the paint. Toughness. When you think of an NBA big man, these are likely the qualities you’re looking for. You want the guy who can get your team baskets close to the rim, stop the other team from doing the same, and do it all while giving your team a sense…

  15. Celtics go after Rudy Gay? Three way trade with Lakers? Not likely.

    Jan 28, 2013, 10:51 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    With Rajon Rondo now gone for the rest of this season (and part of next season, and really he likely is not his old self until the season after that) it’s time for Danny Ainge to consider breaking up these Celtics. But the first rumors flying around are not likely at all — that they…

  16. 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…

  17. 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,…

  18. The Extra Pass: The New Roll Man

    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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
