    The Wizards are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008, the Pacers scored more than 100 points. Those are things worth celebrating.

  4. Marcin Gortat says Wizards are sometimes ‘mentally weak’

    Mar 27, 2014, 12:33 PM EDT

    Marcin Gortat

    Depending on your perspective, the Washington Wizards either blew their game against Phoenix last night by falling behind by 25 points in the third quarter or showed resiliency by cutting the deficit to three points late. Considering the Suns ultimately won, 99-93, you can guess how the Washington players interpreted the game. Marcin Gortat, via…

  5. Drew Gooden, Jordan Hill ejected after Wizards/Lakers shoving match (VIDEO)

    Mar 22, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT

    Drew Gooden, Nick Young

    It started with Drew Gooden, who had been frustrated with the perceived lack of calls going his way. There was 2:14 left in the eventual Wizards 117-107 win over the Lakers Friday night when Gooden got tangled up with the Lakers’ Nick Young and the Wizards forward wrapped up Young’s arm and yanked it as Gooden…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  8. Thursday night NBA grades: Wizards/Raptors have one game worth watching

    Feb 28, 2014, 3:05 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reminding yourself not to make love to a pizza…. Marcin Gortat, Washington Wizards. That is why Washington needed Marcin Gorat. It may have taken John Wall a while to realize it — there were some rough patches at the start — but Gortat has…

  9. Wizards go to triple-overtime to beat Raptors

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:04 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Toronto Raptors

    This is why you buy NBA League-pass, so that while everyone else is stuck watching masked LeBron James beating up on the hapless Knicks, you can flip over and watch Washington’s John Wall do this to Toronto’s Kyle Lowry to force a second overtime. There would go on to be three overtimes in what was…

  10. Washington Wizards reportedly tried hard to trade for Jameer Nelson

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:12 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson, Jonas Valanciunas

    It was no secret the Washington Wizards needed point guard help behind John Wall. It’s also no secret the rebuilding Orlando Magic are no longer a great fit for 32-year-old Jameer Nelson. The two teams would have made sense as trade partners before last week’s deadline. In fact, the Wizards reportedly really wanted to be…

  11. Extra Pass: Cleveland Cavaliers built playoff-caliber team, but that won’t mean enough

    Feb 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Luol Deng, Kevin Durant

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

  12. Wizards’ Nene out 4-6 weeks with sprained knee, no surgery needed

    Feb 24, 2014, 5:40 PM EDT

    Nene

    When is being out 4-6 weeks with a sprained knee good news? When you are about six weeks out from the playoffs and you thought you were going to lose an important contributor through the postseason. The Washington Wizards were concerned starting big man Nene could be gone for the season but an MRI Monday…

  13. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  14. Nene to have MRI on knee, Wizards concerned there is torn ligament

    Feb 24, 2014, 12:26 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Los Angeles Clippers

    Washington’s dream of a deep playoff run could have just snapped along with Nene’s knee. Nene had to leave the court against the Cavaliers Sunday and did not return. It was scary because there was no real contact on the play, Nene had raced back to challenge a shot, leapt and when he landed it…

  15. Spurs sign Shannon Brown to 10-day contract

    Feb 1, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    The Spurs have signed Shannon Brown to a 10-day contract, a move announced on Saturday via official release. The team also released Othyus Jeffers, whom they had previously called up from the D-League on a 10-day contract following the injury to Kawhi Leonard. Brown played well for the Phoenix Suns over the last two seasons,…

  16. Report: Bulls discussed Taj Gibson trade with Lakers, Wizards and Bobcats

    Jan 31, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

  17. Pelicans waive Tyshawn Taylor, who was acquired in trade from Nets

    Jan 22, 2014, 7:04 PM EDT

    tyshawn taylor nets

    The Nets made a couple of trades over the weekend, likely aimed at both upgrading their backup point guard position as well as creating an open roster spot. One of the deals involved sending Tyshawn Taylor to the Pelicans along with cash for the rights to Edin Bavcic, a 29-year old Bosnian big man who…

  18. The Extra Pass: Why the Knicks are starved offensively; plus Monday’s recaps

    Jan 21, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    As the New York Knicks were serenaded with a mix of boos and chants of “Brooklyn! Brooklyn!” at Madison Square Garden during an embarrassing 23 point home loss to the Nets, it felt like rock bottom. Again. For about the seventh time. That’s the thing about the Knicks this season. When it looks like it…

    The Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday is one traditionally well-celebrated in the NBA. Today features a 10-game slate, and we’ll provide live updates, highlights and recaps here as the day goes on. 1:15 a.m. ET Tuesday: Pacers 102, Warriors 94 (FINAL): The second half of this game felt like a playoff game, down to the…

  20. Report: Washington Wizards want Greg Monroe

    Jan 20, 2014, 7:34 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Marcin Gortat, Bradley Beal, Trevor Ariza, Josh Smith

    The Detroit Pistons have one month to determine whether they’re willing to give Greg Monroe a max contract. There’s no guarantee Monroe will get that large of an offer as a restricted free agent this summer, but the possibility is high enough that if the Pistons aren’t willing to pay him max money, they nearly…

  21. Greg Oden makes first regular season appearance since 2009, dunks almost immediately (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

    Greg Oden

    Greg Oden was a part of the Heat’s active roster on Wednesday, meaning that it was likely he’d see his first action of the regular season on the road against the Wizards. Oden was a reclamation project for Miami, a long-term gamble the team hoped would pay off by the time the postseason rolled around…

  22. The Extra Pass: Quiet Jazz and Tuesday’s recaps

    Gordon Hayward

    For the most part, the Utah Jazz typically fly under the radar. Occasionally they’ll pop up after unexpectedly beating a contender, like they did last night with a victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder. But other than that? You won’t hear much out of Utah. No real trade rumors, no murmurs of unhappiness, no headline…

  23. The Extra Pass: The best dunks of 2013; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    If the end of a year serves as a time for reflection and the remembrance of lessons learned, then let the video below serve as one last reminder for the small guards of the league. If LeBron James is coming at you on a break, move. If DeAndre Jordan is flying down the lane towards…

  24. Lakers say Xavier Henry will miss at least 7-10 days with right knee bone bruise

    Dec 30, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Xavier Henry

    The amount of injuries befalling the Lakers this season is almost reaching comical proportions, especially to players charged with handling some of the point guard duties. Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Kobe Bryant are all out for varying time periods, and Jordan Farmar, who just returned from a hamstring injury, was held out of Monday’s…

  25. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Even without Westbrook Thunder take top spot

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    It’s legitimate to question how well Oklahoma City will fair in the roughly 27 games they will play without Russell Westbrook, but so far so good and that slides the to the top of the last power rankings of 2013. 1. Thunder (25-5, Last Week No. 2). They won all their games last week, but…
