    Andre Iguodala

    While everybody was watching the overtime drama to see how the bottom half of the Western Conference would play out, there were a lot of questions in the middle of the conference as well: Could Denver hold on to the three seed? Could the Clippers hold off the Grizzlies and have home court in the…

  2. Hornets’ Anthony Davis out for season with MCL sprain

    Apr 11, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Marcus Thornton

    The good news is this is not serious, and when the injury happened it looked like it could have been. New Orleans’ No. 1 pick Anthony Davis will be out for the season due to a sprained MCL plus a bone bruise in his left knee, suffered in the fourth quarter Wednesday night against the…

  3. Anthony Davis tweaks knee near end of Hornets loss, apparently okay

    Anthony Davis, Marcus Thornton

    New Orleans fans were holding their breath near the end of the fourth quarter Wednesday night.

The resulting collision had Thornton falling on and…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while scrolling through the Florida Man twitter feed….

    Golden State's Curry chews his mouthpiece against Indiana during an NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    No one really remembers the numbers guys get in losing efforts. Those numbers usually seem hollow; they come off as not worthy of mention. Tonight, though, we honor those guys who put up big numbers in a losing effort. Because as those guys showed out and did their best to help their team win, they…

  14. Kings players want Isaiah Thomas to start; don’t know what they’re running on offense

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    Isaiah DeMarcus

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

  16. NBA season preview: Sacramento Kings

    Oct 19, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Last Season: More of the same, for a club that has been truly terrible for the last six seasons. Paul Westphal was run out of town mid-season in favor of Keith Smart, who thus far has had much greater success relating to the team’s young players. DeMarcus Cousins showed significant improvement, and the speedy rookie…

  17. Thomas Robinson could get time at small forward for the Kings

    Oct 7, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    thomas robinson

    The Kings are apparently thinking about going with a super-big lineup. From the Sacramento Bee: Don’t rule out Thomas Robinson seeing time at small forward during the preseason. During one 5-on-5 session, Robinson was the small forward with Chuck Hayes and DeMarcus Cousins the other frontcourt players. Jimmer Fredette and Marcus Thornton were the other…

  18. The Inbounds: Can Keith Smart save the Kings’ soul?

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    My favorite B-movie of all time is “Killer Clowns from Outer Space.” It is as terrible and ridiculous as the title suggests, an outright cavalcade of campy horror bathed in absurdist light. To try and watch it is to recognize that sometimes, there are things which should not be made, and yet you will watch…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lakers win fourth in a row without Kobe

    Apr 16, 2012, 8:09 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while going on Craigslist to try and find the guy who got you pregnant at that Motorhead concert…. Heat 93, Knicks 85: This potential first-round matchup proved that the Heat’s three stars — they accounted for all but 20 of the Heat’s points on the day — were better than the Knicks…

    Apr 2, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook celebrates with small forward Kevin Durant during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Oklahoma City

    There can’t be any question about the Thunder in the top spot after the last 8 days, but there are questions about the Heat and the Bulls in the East. And the Celtics and Spurs as spoilers. 1. Thunder (40-12, last week ranked number 2). They beat the Heat, Bulls and Lakers in the last…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: George comes up big for Pacers

    Mar 23, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Paul George, Danny Granger

    What you missed while being thankful you’re not allergic to water…. Hornets 97, Clippers 90: The New Orleans Arena felt especially warm, mostly because of the heat emanating from Vinny Del Negro’s seat. The Clippers lost their third in a row to a feisty Hornets team in our game of the night. Celtics 100, Bucks…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Heat hotter than the Suns

    Mar 21, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    What you missed while wondering why someone whose job it was to smuggle cocaine into the United States would get the personalized license plate “SMUGLER”… Heat 99, Suns 95: It looked like the Suns had a road upset in their pocket — they led most of the fourth quarter and were up 10 with just…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bosh looks good in Heat victory

    Mar 19, 2012, 3:10 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwight Howard

    What you missed while thinking a new study proves your children are brilliant…. Heat 91, Magic 81: Everybody talks about the big man the Heat could use. We often underestimate Chris Bosh — he had 23 points on 13 shots. Dwyane Wade owned the fourth quarter with 14 of his 31 coming then, when the…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love outduels Blake Griffin

    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EDT

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  25. Winderman: Sacramento arena win just first step for Kings

    Feb 27, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The victory by the Sacramento Kings over a new arena and long-term franchise stability is an encouraging one for small markets throughout the NBA. The Kings, thanks to the efforts of Kevin Johnson, the nation’s best ball-handling mayor, now will have a stable home for years to come. But a building only ensures residency, not…
