  1. Wednesday night NBA grades: Greg Oden is back — that is a story worth celebrating

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:57 AM EDT

    Miami Heat vs Washington Wizards

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering what kind of Little League coach sues one of his 14-year-old players… Greg Oden, Miami Heat. He made it back, and that is the story. Tonight he had six points on 2-of-3 shooting in 8:24 on the court — what matters is that…

  2. Thad Young hits the game-winning three to send Sixers past Bobcats (VIDEO)

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:35 AM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Thaddeus Young has been largely amazing for the Sixers this season, but has also been a bit of an enigma over his last few games. After being named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played through Jan. 5, Young followed that up by going scoreless in 22 minutes the very next day. He…

  3. Report: Nerlens Noel cleared for basketball activity, could play for Sixers after All-Star break

    Jan 15, 2014, 4:14 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Despite earlier reports the team might have him sit out the season, it looks as if the Sixers could get Nerlens Noel on the court after the All-Star break. The Philadelphia rookie — picked up in a draft night trade sending Jrue Holiday to New Orleans — has been cleared for basketball activity, reports Jeff…

  4. 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…

  5. Michael Carter-Williams crosses up Ricky Rubio (VIDEO)

    Jan 7, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    There weren’t a lot of highlights for the Sixers in Monday’s blowout loss to the Timberwolves, but after just getting back from a 17-day road trip, the weariness was to be expected. Still, this was an incredible move from Michael Carter-Williams, who loses Ricky Rubio with the nice crossover and then gets the and-1 to…

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  7. Michael Carter-Williams says he’s fine after catching an elbow to the head on final play against Blazers (VIDEO)

    Jan 5, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    Michael Carter-Williams caught an elbow to the head on the final play of the Sixers’ win in Portland on Saturday, and remained down on the court for a few minutes after the final buzzer had sounded. From Dei Lynam of CSN Philly: Eventually MCW made his way to the Sixers’ locker room and underwent a…

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  9. Evan Turner hits game-winner at the overtime buzzer to give Sixers win over Nets (VIDEO)

    Dec 20, 2013, 10:51 PM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    When the Nets played the Sixers just four days ago in Brooklyn, they won by 36 points and honestly, the game wasn’t even that close. Things were different Friday night in Philadelphia, however, and it had everything to do with the available personnel. Kevin Garnett took this game off as a day of rest, and…

  10. Michael Carter-Williams returns to Sixers lineup Friday against Nets

    Dec 20, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Philadelphia 76ers

    This could be fun: Deron Williams vs. Michael Carter-Williams. Looks like we will get to see it because Michael Carter-Williams is set to return to the Sixers lineup Friday night after missing seven straight games with a knee infection. Officially he is a game time decision — because teams like to keep their options open…

  11. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…

  12. Report: Bulls, Sixers lead in Dion Waiters trade talks, he wants Philly

    Dec 17, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters

    It’s been known for a while the Cavaliers have been testing the trade market for Dion Waiters. We told you last week that there was buzz the Sixers could look to move Evan Turner — he leads them in scoring and as a free agent this summer could draw a bigger contract than they want…

  13. Nerlens Noel says he might come back this season

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    I still wouldn’t bet on it. Smart money is last year’s first round pick Nerlens Noel will sit out this entire season recovering from an ACL injury, there is no reason for Philadelphia to rush him. That’s been the accepted wisdom. However, when Noel was interviewed on SiriusXM NBA Radio with hosts Jason Goff and…

  14. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  15. Report: Sixers considering trading Evan Turner

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Atlanta Hawks

    Evan Turner leads the Philadelphia 76ers in scoring this season — he’s still not a great shooter but he has a couple spots he can get to on the floor (along the baselines in the midrange) where he is solid, plus he is finishing better inside. He’s really a solid rotation player on most teams,…

  16. Why question “When did basketball get so bad?” misses mark

    Dec 10, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    NBA basketball right now is entering a golden age. Just not everybody appreciates that. Charles Barkley swung by the Dan Patrick Show on Monday and together they sounded like grumpy old men telling you how basketball isn’t as good now as it was when they were fans of the sport. At least they didn’t throw…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  18. Michael Carter-Williams hospitalized with bacterial infection

    Dec 7, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    So, I had this whole thing written and ready about how Sixers coach Brett Brown doesn’t believe that Michael Carter-Williams is injury-prone, despite the fact that after sitting out Saturday, the rookie will have missed six of his team’s first 21 games. But then the news broke that Carter-Williams had been hospitalized with a bacterial…

  19. Sore knee will sideline Michael Carter-Williams at least one game

    Dec 5, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    Michael Carter-Williams is becoming must-see NBA TV — 17.7 points a game plus 7.3 assists a game playing at the fastest pace in the league. And don’t forget the 3.1 steals a game. But this weekend the early leader in the Rookie of the Year race will be sitting out with a sore knee. He…

  20. Orlando’s Arron Afflalo drops 43 in loss to Philly (VIDEO)

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v. Philadelphia 76ers

    The night before Paul George did the same thing for the Pacers, this time it was Arron Afflalo — scoring 43 points in a losing effort. Afflalo was overshadowed by the two rookies notching triple-doubles (Michael Carter-Williams, Victor Oladipo) but this was a career high for the former UCLA star. He had 14 in the…

  21. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    brook lopez joe johnson kg

    NEW YORK — If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…

  22. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  23. Michael Carter-Williams salary going into trust he can’t touch

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Philadelphia 76ers

    Sixers’ rookie Michael Carter-Williams is putting up the best rookie numbers in Philadelphia since Allen Iverson. Which is a good comparison. A very good one. But there is one area where Carter-Williams is not following the pattern of Iverson (a notorious spender): MCW has yet to touch a dime of his salary this season. That’s…

  24. Brett Brown made 76ers cut weight, and now opponents are begging them to stop running

    Nov 26, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams, George Hill

    New 76ers coach Brett Brown has quickly established his preferred style of play. Philadelphia ranks No. 1 in the NBA in pace and No. 1 in distance travelled per game (as culled from NBA.com’s player-tracking data), and it’s no accident. Brown made his intent clear before the season even began. Dei Lynam of CSN Philly:…

  25. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…
