    Roy Hibbert

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while hating on the idea of Monopoly “house rules”…. Indiana Pacers. It wasn’t pretty, but what mattered was the fight in the team. And the win over Miami, but more than that the fight it took from them to get there. Indiana had been slogging through the season,…

  2. Lance Stephenson ejected after getting in Dwyane Wade’s face (VIDEO)

    Mar 27, 2014, 12:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers

    Lance Stephenson is who he is because he plays with emotion, with a chip on his shoulder. But what he did against the Heat was stupid. It started in the third quarter when Stephenson and Dwyane Wade picked up a double technical for a little shoving match (seen below). Frankly, the double tech on that was…

  3. Pacers edge Heat in showdown of East’s top teams

    Mar 26, 2014, 11:28 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Pacers and the Heat haven’t been playing anywhere near their best basketball as of late, and whether that’s a product of late-season malaise or simply a combination of fatigue and attrition remains to be seen. Their matchup on Wednesday was largely more of the same, before the fourth quarter began and the competitive fire…

Ray Allen (stomach virus) did not participate in this morning’s shootaround and is listed as doubtful for tonight’s #HEATgame.— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) March 26,…

    Mar 26, 2014, 3:55 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    The first thing to know: This Wednesday night showdown between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers is not going to be a great preview of the Eastern Conference Finals. Yes, I still think they meet in the ECF (the odds of it in my mind have gone from 99.9% down to 90%, but I still…

  6. Tuesday NBA grades: Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant in a duel

    Mar 26, 2014, 2:53 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while breaking down the science of the three point shot… Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks. It wasn’t perfect — he had 6 turnovers and shot 2-of-8 from three. But when they needed him vintage Dirk Nowitzki showed up for Dallas scoring 7 of his team-high 32…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Miami Heat

    Miami needed a win and LeBron James was going to make sure they got it. He came out gunning (15 first half shots) and behind him the Heat led most of the way against the Trail Blazers in the second half. Miami was up by 7 in the final two minutes… then gave it all…

  11. PBT Extra: LeBron James is frustrated… and he should be

    Mar 24, 2014, 5:22 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is frustrated with the Heat’s defense, with the lineup changes, with the injuries slowing him down — but mostly he’s frustrated with the losing. After the Heat’s latest loss to a sub .500 team he seemed to call himself and his team out, which is what a leader should do, after the last game. In…

  12. Greg Oden to start for Heat Monday against former team Trail Blazers

    Mar 24, 2014, 2:22 PM EDT

    Greg Oden is playing it down, but he will start against the team that drafted him No. 1 all those years ago. It will be emotional.

  13. PBT Power Rankings: Streaking Spurs on top, streaking Sixers on bottom

  17. Amar’e Stoudemire: “I want to be a Knick for life”

    Mar 21, 2014, 12:53 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    When you talk about Amar’e Stoudemire the contract is the first thing that comes up — he is making $21.7 million this season and will pick up his player option for $23.4 million next season. Yes, that is overpaying for his current production, which has been improved this season (11.1 points a game on 55…

    Mar 19, 2014, 11:51 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Udonis Haslem

    BOSTON – Dwyane Wade had barely crossed halfcourt when Udonis Haslem streaked past him and all the way behind the defense. Wade tossed the ball toward the rim, and Haslem grabbed it and dunked, hanging on the rim an extra beat. The Celtics called timeout, on their way to a 14-point deficit midway through the…
