  1. So who gets Rajon Rondo’s All-Star slot?

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:29 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    Don’t we all just love it when David Stern and the league office get to put their fingerprints all over the All-Star Game? But with Rajon Rondo now out with a torn ACL in his right knee, it falls to Stern to make changes to the East roster for the Feb. 17 game in Houston.…

  2. GM says Bucks don’t have plans to trade Jennings or Ellis

    Jan 25, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Bucks general manager John Hammond just got a three-year contract extension. He’s also the guy that brought together the Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis backcourt. So, you expect them to break it up at the deadline? In talking with Bucks.com, Hammond said that is not the plan. “We like our team, we really like Brandon and Monta.…

  3. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

  4. 2013 NBA All-Star reserves announced

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kyrie Irving outduels Rajon Rondo

    Jan 23, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Avery Bradley

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting five days for that goat cheese fire to butn itself out… Thunder 109, Clippers 98: This was a four-point game at the half, then Kevin Durant happened. The Clippers were without their star in Chris Paul — bruised knee — but…

  6. Three Stars of the Night: A couple All-Stars and an Ilyasova

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:57 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Avery Bradley

    Sometimes you watch a game and a certain player just jumps off the screen at you. These were the three who did that for me on Tuesday. And yes, I know that Kyrie Irving has not yet been named an All-Star, but I think that changes Thursday. He’s going to get Doc Rivers vote. Third…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Clippers back on top, showdown with Thunder Tuesday

    Jan 21, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    BKN-CLIPPERS-WIZARDS

    No change in the top four teams, but really it feels like right now there is a top three teams with the Heat capable of being that good but not really choosing to all the time. 1. Clippers (32-9, last week ranked No. 2). Chris Paul sits out three games, Eric Bledsoe steps in and…

  10. Brandon Jennings doesn’t like his All-Star chances

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    PHOENIX — Brandon Jennings, and to a lesser extent, Monta Ellis, are on the bubble in terms of potential players who could be named to the All-Star team as a reserve. We discussed this on the podcast this week — once you get past Kyrie Irving, there really aren’t any locks to make the team…

  11. PBT Podcast: Lakers-Heat, All-Star reserves, and a conversation with Gary Payton

    Jan 18, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to talk about the epic Thursday night matchup between the Lakers and the Heat. We wonder if anyone can beat this Miami team when LeBron James has it going like that, and discuss the Lakers overall improvement and how Pau gasol might be…

  13. Three Stars of the Night: LeBron plus Wade equals too much for Lakers

    Jan 18, 2013, 3:09 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James celebrates during their NBA basketball game against Los Angeles Lakers in Los Angeles

    We really should just rename this the LeBron James and two other great performances of the night, considering the fact that when James is dialed in and chooses to exert maximum effort, all is lost for anyone trying to stop him. Before we get to James, however, let’s highlight a couple of other guys who…

  14. Bucks win in Phoenix for first time in 25 years

    Jan 18, 2013, 2:02 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Phoenix Suns

    PHOENIX — The Suns are in a bad place right now, contemplating rotation changes geared more toward player development than winning in the not-so-distant future. The Bucks, meanwhile, are a playoff team in the East, and fought like it on Thursday to overcome an eight-point fourth quarter deficit on the way to a 98-94 victory.…

  15. These guys should be the NBA All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 17, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook drives by San Antonio Spurs' Parker during the second half of Game 6 of the NBA Western Conference basketball finals in Oklahoma City

    The fans have done their job — you all picked the NBA All-Star Game starters. And well done. While I could quibble with a choice I might have made differently, there are no egregious errors (read: Jeremy Lin is not a starter). Now it falls to the coaches to pick the seven reserves for each…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the offensive outbursts

    Jan 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking about what a jump to hyperspace in the Millennium Falcon would really be like… Lakers 104, Bucks 88: Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard each had 31 points, but the real key for Los Angles was their defense — Kobe was on…

  17. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe Bryant gets some help

    Jan 16, 2013, 2:29 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    Regardless of how you feel about Kobe Bryant, you have to admit that he’s doing something pretty incredible this season. How many players in their 17th NBA season average nearly 30 points a game on career-best efficiency numbers? It’s unprecedented. Problem is, Kobe hasn’t been getting an awful lot of help offensively, and he’s nowhere near…

  18. Lakers find groove for second game in a row… bring on the real test (Miami)

    Jan 16, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Lakers

    It was a gimmick — after the Lakers ugly loss to the Thunder last Friday night, Mike D’Antoni said that the Lakers season really started Sunday night. Well, the Lakers are 2-0 in their “new” season, and both wins looked a lot more like what everyone expected of the team this season — Dwight Howard…

  20. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Durant carries Thunder to win

    Jan 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while taking a car through a drive-through with an invisible driver… Lakers 113, Cavaliers 93: Dwight Howard was back playing for the Lakers and it showed — he was blocking shots, drawing double teams and generally opening up the Lakers…

  22. Three Stars of the Night: Front court players in spotlight

    Jan 14, 2013, 2:02 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Durant drives past Los Angeles Lakers' Clark during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    There’s a simple old coach’s axiom in basketball: Tall and good beats small and good. So tonight we look at the tall guys and give them their due with the three stars. There were other candidates big and small who were worthy but just missed the cut: Carmelo Anthony (27 points 7 rebounds), Brandon Jennings…

  23. Just to be clear, Bucks have no plans to trade Brandon Jennings

    Jan 13, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Tiago Splitter

    Milwaukee Bucks management has some big-picture questions to answer going forward: What kind of team are they trying to build? Who best to coach that style of team? What players on the roster fit that system? Which need to be traded? Just know that whatever trades are coming down around the deadline, Brandon Jennings will…

  25. Nate Robinson’s trash talk fired up Brandon Jennings. Oops.

    Jan 10, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Nate Robinson

    Apparently, no one has ever told Nate Robinson that pride comes before the fall. Starting in place of Kirk Hinrich, Robinson came out on fire last night against the Milwaukee Bucks. He lit up Brandon Jennings early on by dropping 13 points in the first quarter, and the Bulls were really cruising. But during all…
