  1. NBA season preview: Phoenix Suns

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Last Season: We could talk about the slow start, the impressive run in the season’s second half, or the eventual finish two games outside of the playoff picture. But all anyone in Phoenix will ultimately remember about the 2011-12 campaign is that it was the last time they would witness the on-court brilliance of Steve…

  2. NBA Season Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 26, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…

  3. Martell Webster works out for, could end up with Wizards

    Aug 23, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Martell Webster, Rick Adelman

    Trevor Ariza will be the starting swingman for the Washington Wizards, but the team is looking at adding some depth there. Apparently. The Wizards worked out free agent Martell Webster and he could sign with them, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Or, they could add one of the other veterans they are considering.…

  4. Report: five teams express interest in Michael Redd

    Aug 22, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Michael-Redd-suns

    As teams finish rounding out their roster, they tend to go with one of two kinds of players for spots 11-15 at the end of the bench — young players with potential they think might develop, or a veteran they think can provide a little help on the court and be good in the locker…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Texans love barbeque. • If you read just one thing today, make it…

  6. Steve Nash discusses his future after playing what feels like his final game with the Suns

    Apr 26, 2012, 3:51 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    The Suns played the Spurs in the team’s season finale on Wednesday, but the outcome of the game meant less than nothing to either of the participants. With the game taking place in Phoenix, the focus was entirely on Steve Nash, who is an unrestricted free agent heading into next season, and might very well…

  7. Jazz clinch last playoff spot in the West, eliminate Suns

    Apr 25, 2012, 2:04 AM EDT

    Derrick Favors, Marcin Gortat

    The Jazz clinched the final playoff spot in the West on Tuesday, and knocked the Suns out of the postseason picture at the same time. In a game that was essentially a must-win for both teams if they were to keep their playoff hopes alive, Utah was too tough at home, especially inside, and were…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Who forgot to tell Spurs they are old?

    Apr 9, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal

    Can you picture a San Antonio vs. Miami finals? It’s not that hard, if you try. 1. Spurs (40-14, last week ranked number 2). Eleven wins in a row and they are percentage points ahead of the Thunder (and one ahead of them in the loss column). Are they title contenders? They have four rings…

  9. With Kobe out, Suns hand Lakers worst loss of the season

    Apr 8, 2012, 2:57 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant was a late scratch on Saturday in Phoenix, but his absence wasn’t the reason for the Lakers’ 125-105 loss to the Suns, the team’s worst of the season. It was the defense, or more specifically, the lack thereof that enabled Phoenix to set season highs in total points (125) and points in a…

  10. National attention on the way for a Suns team that’s earned it in recent weeks

    Mar 19, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    nash-shannon-jared-roblin

    Suns owner Robert Sarver made a rare appearance at Alvin Gentry’s pre-game media session before Sunday night’s game against the Rockets, which the head coach traditionally holds in a very relaxed atmosphere in his office. Sarver was in good spirits and wanted to joke around a little, and with the way his team has played…

  11. 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…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron beats Cleveland. Yawn.

    Feb 8, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James watches a replay of his score with teammate Miller against the Cleveland Cavaliers in their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while learning to play a-ha on the accordion…. Heat 107, Cavaliers 91: As has been their pattern, this is another game where the Heat played down to the level of the competition. At least for three quarters — in the fourth the Heat cranked up the defense and that was enough to…

  13. NBA Power Rankings: Heat on top, Clippers climbing

    Feb 6, 2012, 2:12 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James prepares to make a shot against Milwaukee Bucks during their NBA game in Milwaukee

    Miami moves back into the top spot — but the Clippers have now cracked the top three, which had been the domain of the Heat, Bulls and Thunder for a while. Oh, and the Bobcats still suck. 1. Heat (18-6, last week ranked No. 2). They’ve had a few uninspired wins (like Sunday against the…

  14. Michael Redd calls surprise start “one of the proudest moments of his career” after Suns beat the Bobcats

    Feb 5, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    Michael-Redd-suns

    Michael Redd arrived at the US Airways Center in Phoenix more than four hours before his Suns were set to face the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday. The reason, he said, was just to get some extra work in and to keep himself prepared for when his time would come to play more minutes. He found…

  15. Steve Nash suffers thigh bruise at the end of Suns’ win over the Grizzlies

    Jan 29, 2012, 3:15 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    It’s probably nothing that will hinder Steve Nash for very long, if at all. But on the last play of the Suns’ 86-84 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, Nash collided with Marc Gasol, causing him to limp off the floor after Mike Conley‘s three-point attempt at the buzzer to win it fell short. “It…

  16. Gentry says Suns “have to find a way to play with Nash off the floor”

    Jan 28, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    nash-gentry-preview

    The Suns are off to a 6-12 start, which isn’t exactly where the team hoped or expected to be a little more than a quarter of the way through this lockout-shortened season. The problems certainly can’t be traced back to Steve Nash, who leads the league in assists despite Phoenix playing at a much slower…

  17. Suns won’t offer contract extension to Robin Lopez

    Jan 25, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns, Game 4

    Wednesday’s Jan. 25 deadline for the Suns to offer a contract extension to center Robin Lopez will come and go without any action by the team, according to a report from Fox Sports Arizona: “We reached out to (Lopez’s agent) Arn Tellem and let him know that we were willing to engage in discussions to…

  18. Kyrie Irving scores a career-high 26 points to lead Cavs to victory over the Suns

    Jan 13, 2012, 2:16 AM EDT

    kyrie-irving-suns

    This was supposed to be the soft part of the schedule for Phoenix. Kyrie Irving made sure that it wasn’t. The number one overall pick in the NBA draft showed why he was taken there, scoring a career-best 26 points and keying a second-quarter run that erased the Suns’ six-point lead, and put the Cavaliers…

  19. Michael Redd likely to see his first action with the Suns later this week

    Jan 9, 2012, 8:30 AM EDT

    michael-redd-phx

    Michael Redd signed with the Suns back on Dec. 29, and at the time, the message was clear that there would be no rush in getting him to the court. But after 10 days of workouts with the team, it appears that his time is almost here. “I think he’s almost to the point where…

  20. Report: Four 2008 Team USA members on the out, roster to mix 2008 and 2010 gold medal teams

    Jan 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Beijing Olympics

    Team USA begins its preparation for the 2012 Summer Games this month. It will release the 18-man roster under consideration for final inclusion as the 2012 U.S men’s basketball team and ESPN reports that there will be some changes from the 2008 squad that won gold in Beijing. The new team will reportedly feature combined…

  21. Friday And-1 links, where it’s Jan Vesely time

    2011 NBA Draft

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Jan Vesely’s hip better and the Washington rookie is expected to make his NBA debut Friday vs. the Knicks. Maybe that will help, because the…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Blazers climb, Heat on top of mountain

    Jan 2, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Lots of big moves up and down as the rankings start to shake themselves out a little. In college football they should hold off doing polls through those early weeks because said polls impact the postseason, but as the NBA has a playoff to determine who is best let’s dive in. 1. Heat (5-0, last…

  23. It’s official, Suns sign Michael Redd to deal

    Dec 29, 2011, 2:38 PM EDT

    MRedd

    Our man in Phoenix Brett Pollakoff told you last night that oft-injured sharpshooter Michael Redd had come in and worked out for the Suns. Apparently that went well because now he is officially a member of the Suns, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. This is a one-year deal for the veterans’ minimum.…

  24. Michael Redd works out for the Suns

    Dec 29, 2011, 12:14 AM EDT

    Michael-Redd-suns

    The Suns, after suffering their first 0-2 start since the 1996-97 season following a blowout loss to the Sixers on Wednesday, are in desperate need of a reliable scorer. Michael Redd, a former All-Star and 11-year veteran shooting guard who at one time consistently averaged better than 20 points per game, is an unrestricted free…

  25. Friday morning one liners (so long Brandon Roy)

    Dec 16, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT
