    Feb 20, 2013, 8:07 AM EDT

    P.J. Carlesimo, C.J. Watson, Joe Johnson

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the residents of Harlem say the Harlem Shake meme has nothing to do with the Harlem Shake…. Nets 113, Bucks 111 (OT): Joe Johnson is clutch — so far this season he is 8-for-9 shooting with less than 30 seconds remaining…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: No Average Joes

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Johnson smiles on the bench after leaving their NBA basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder, in Oklahoma City

    Wasn’t Monday night awful? No NBA games being played brought back some serious lockout flashbacks, but Tuesday night was just the remedy. Nine games were on the slate to welcome us back from the All-Star break, and there were some impressive performances put up. Tony Parker rattled off 30 points and 11 assists in a…

  3. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  4. Nets’ Joe Johnson hits three to send game to OT, then beats Bucks with game winner (VIDEO)

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:46 PM EDT

    Joe Johnson Nets Game winner

    Joe Johnson can have some coffee. He can close. As evidence, we will first present the three he hit to send the game to overtime against the Bucks on Tuesday night. Then in overtime, he drained the game winner as the buzzer sounded. Johnson crossed up a really good defender in Luc Richard Mbah a…

  5. Report: Bucks, Magic talking Mbah a Moute for Redick

    Feb 19, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Orlando Magic

    Milwaukee has appeared to be very active as the trade deadline at 3 p.m. Eastern on Thursday approaches. Their starting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis are free agents this summer — in the case of Jennings it is restricted and the Bucks can match. But they are listening to offers and talking about…

  6. Latest buzz: Monta Ellis for Josh Smith? I’m not so sure.

    Feb 19, 2013, 12:34 PM EDT

    Josh Smith of the Atlanta  Hawks walks off the court against the Chicago Bulls during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    For a trade to come to fruition, both teams have to feel like they are winning, that they are improving. Sometimes as fans we can look at a trade from our team’s perspective and think, “this is a great deal” while the other side would say “are you kidding?” With that we bring you the…

  7. Report: Monta Ellis expected to turn down $11 million option, become free agent

    Feb 18, 2013, 9:39 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    The Milwaukee Bucks could look like a very different team next season. We’ve already told you how Brandon Jennings — frustrated he wasn’t picked to be in Houston this weekend for the All-Star Game — is a restricted free agent next summer and has a new agent known for getting his clients to big cities.…

  8. Are the Milwaukee Bucks interested in Josh Smith?

    Feb 16, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    The Milwaukee Bucks have the potential to be one of the biggest players at the trade deadline. They have one of the league’s best shooters on an affordable deal in Mike Dunleavy. They have a serviceable backup big man on an expiring deal in Samuel Dalembert. They have point guard Brandon Jennings, who will be…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: Two All-Stars and a guy who should have been

    Feb 14, 2013, 2:27 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Paul George

    I wanted to do an all All-Star edition of three stars tonight, but I couldn’t leave Josh Smith off (representing he and Al Horford, who alone almost beat the Magic)… but he should have been one. So I’m calling this the All-Star edition anyway. As always some guys are close but just missed out. Joe…

  10. Brandon Jennings says everything is good with Bucks. So stop asking.

    Feb 13, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    Brandon Jennings had no choice but this. If you watched what the disaster that was Dwight Howard getting out of Orlando, it had to be that even if you want to leave town you insist vehemently that you don’t. The rumors have been out for a while now that Brandon Jennings is unhappy wants out…

  11. Wednesday And-1 links: Woodson says Shumpert will not be moved

  12. Report: Mavericks interested in Brandon Jennings. If Bucks move him.

    Feb 13, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Milwaukee Bucks have tested the trade waters for Brandon Jennings — he’s a restricted free agent this summer they think is going to potentially get offers larger than they want to match. So do you trade him now and get something for him? The Bucks will listen. The Mavericks are interested if Milwaukee is…

  13. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos…. Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: A Celtics team on the second night of a back-to-back where the first game went three overtimes ran into a Bobcats that doesn’t have a lot going for it but…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  15. Charlie Villanueva hits the game-winning three to send Pistons past Bucks (VIDEO)

    Feb 9, 2013, 11:27 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    Charlie Villanueva hit this three-pointer as the shot clock expired with about 10 seconds remaining that ended up being the game-winner in the Pistons 105-100 win over the Bucks in Milwaukee on Saturday. Villanueva was in the right place at the right time, planted at the top of the three-point arc and available when Will…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  17. Report: Milwaukee shopping Samuel Dalembert

    Feb 6, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    After a month where Samuel Dalembert was all but out of the Bucks rotation, he has played more than 20 minutes in three of the team’s last five games. That included a 35-point, 12 rebound performance against the Nuggets on Tuesday night. Are the Bucks showcasing Dalembert for a potential trade? Marc Stein of ESPN…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers win with offense. Again.

    Feb 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    D.J. Augustin, Al Horford

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching a toddler drain trick shot after trick shot… Lakers 92, Nets 83: Up until this game I was still sure the Lakers were not a playoff team, that the recent streak would not be enough for the hole they dug. But…

  19. Three Stars: Paul George on the rise

    Feb 6, 2013, 2:04 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks' Korver guards Indiana Pacers' George during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There’s nothing quite like the phenomenon of watching a young player ascend to stardom. When a young player bursts on to the scene and starts making extraordinary plays routine, he captures our imagination. How good could 22-year-old Paul George be? Who does he remind us of? Potential is enticing on its own, but when it’s paired…

  20. Report: Kevin Garnett has heavy conditions on waiving no-trade clause

    Feb 4, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Chicago Bulls

    When people haven’t been talking about Beyoncé and power outages on Monday, they seem to have been planning Kevin Garnett trades. Particularly with the Clippers after reports leaked out that the two sides have talked. Those two sides are nowhere close to a deal right now, but that doesn’t stop people from speculating. Neither will…

  21. Monday And-1 Links: JaVale McGee should be back Tuesday

    Feb 4, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: For one night at least Celtics look fine post-Rondo

    Jan 31, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch. You can apply that one word sentence to Dwight Howard’s shoulder, he left the game midway through the fourth quarter and did not return, seeming to aggravate his…

  23. The Extra Pass: Drafting the Rookie-Sophomore Game

    Jan 30, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, Kurt Helin and I draft our Rookie-Sophomore teams. We love the idea of the Rookie-Sophomore game at All-Star Weekend being drafted by Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal. We love it so…

    Jan 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while spending way too much time on the Stacy King soundboard…. Lakers 111, Hornets 106: The renaissance of the Lakers offense continues — Kobe Bryant had 11 assists, Dwight Howard rolled to the rim for 24 and the Lakers played beautiful basketball. But…

  25. Three Stars of the Night: Turn It Around

    Jan 30, 2013, 1:52 AM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge

    How about those road Warriors? They didn’t have Stephen Curry, Andrew Bogut, Carl Landry, or Harrison Barnes…and they still shot 53 percent in a 108-95 victory in Cleveland. A lot of that credit goes to Klay Thompson, who just missed the cut despite dropping a career-high 32 points. That’s how good our Three Stars were tonight, so let’s…
