  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Time to fear Brook Lopez?

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:30 AM EDT

    Deshawn Stevenson

    What you missed while you were spilling beer on the German Chancellor…. Nets 93, Mavericks 92: Dallas, you did a terrible job of trying to impress Deron Williams and make him want to join your roster. Starting late in the third quarter the Mavericks went on an 0-13 shooting streak, they didn’t have a field…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: All-Star Weekend edition

    Feb 27, 2012, 4:50 PM EDT

    Heat's Wade and James watch teammate Chalmers compete in three-point contest during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Here is our daily 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). All weekend Deron Williams got asked about Jeremy Lin again and again — not his favorite topic, as you might guess — but he did…

  4. California investors (and Mike Dunleavy Sr.) frontrunners to buy Hornets

    Feb 25, 2012, 2:17 PM EDT

    Mike Dunleavy

    Last week David Stern said he was close to having a buyer for the New Orleans Hornets — and getting a new lease with the state of Louisiana for the New Orleans Area — that would keep the team in the Crescent City. Those buyers are from Los Angeles not New Orleans based but they…

  5. Tuesday And-1 links: We talk LeBron’s steak house eating habits

    Feb 21, 2012, 11:23 AM EDT

    Heats' James looks around after an opponent's free throw went through the basket during their game against the Magic in Miami

    Here is our daily 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). When he dines out at a fine steak house, LeBron James apparently likes apple martinis, his steak well done and he wants it cut up…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dirk Nowitzki is still good

    Feb 21, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Dallas Mavericks

    What you missed while trying to find something to watch now that Downton Abbey is over….. Nets 100, Knicks 92: Deron Williams would like you to know he is the best point guard in the greater New York area, and will be next year when the Nets move to Brooklyn (unless he leaves to play…

  7. Jon Brockman is better at trick shots than you

    Feb 20, 2012, 4:08 PM EDT

    Jon Brockman

    Whatever you do in life, do not play HORSE for money with Jon Brockman. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. The Bucks backup big man released a video of trick shots that is very impressive. The man has skills. Consider this a Presidents’ Day treat from PBT.

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Streaking Heat, Spurs land on top

    Feb 20, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Miami has looked dominant the last week, while Tony Parker may be the best player in basketball the last two weeks so the Spurs climb. At the bottom, things look familiar. 1. Heat (24-7, last week ranked 1). They became the third team in the NBA to sweep a back-to-back-to-back (Bulls, Thunder), but they did…

  9. In Stephen Jackson’s world he gets traded to the Nets

    Feb 20, 2012, 11:02 AM EDT

    Stephen Jackson

    Stephen Jackson is living in his own little world right now. Jackson and old-school coach Scott Skiles have not meshed, nor has Jackson in the Bucks system. The result has been reduced minutes — eight on Sunday — and lots of Stephen Jackson trade speculation. Jackson basically said on Sunday his ideal situation in his…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pistons handle Celtics easily

    Feb 20, 2012, 7:14 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Pierce and Garnett react when the team was called for a technical foul against the Chicago Bulls during NBA basketball game in Chicago

    What you missed while trying to decide if you should vote for the naked cowboy guy for president… Knicks 104, Mavericks 97: So Mark Cuban, still think Linsanity is all about New York? Matt Moore broke this down as our game of the day Sunday. Heat 90, Magic 78: It wasn’t that close, the Heat…

  11. Report: Stephen Jackson, Scott Skiles are pretty much done with each other

    Feb 17, 2012, 6:20 PM EDT

    Stephen Jackson

    From Gary Woelful of RacineSportsZone.com: After Stephen Jackson was benched for the second half of a game against Denver Jan. 17, I asked the Bucks veteran swingman whether he had any inkling Bucks coach Scott Skiles was going to do that. Jackson said he didn’t get any advance warning and he didn’t get any explanation…

  12. Wednesday And-1 links: Jeremy Lin notes… and other stuff

    Jeremy Lin; Anthony Carter

    Here is our daily 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). Great stuff on why Jeremy Lin and Carmelo Anthony will work out from Bethlehem Shoals at GQ. Mike D’Antoni talks Linsanity, and blending Carmelo Anthony…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas can still close out games

    Feb 14, 2012, 7:35 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    What you missed while wondering why a man would try to rob a store wearing only chocolate and peanut butter… Mavericks 96, Clippers 92: What do you need to do to win in tight fourth quarters in the NBA? Execute. For example, don’t turn the ball over — the Clippers has seven fourth quarter turnovers.…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs advancing, Heat still on top

    Feb 13, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    I’m beginning to wonder: Will the Eastern Conference Finals be the real NBA finals this year? Feels that way some days. 1. Heat (21-7, last week ranked 1) The Magic and Knicks combined to shoot 85 threes against the Heat in two nights. The Heat’s defensive energy does that to teams, makes them settle (although…

  15. Cavaliers’ Anderson Varejao out indefinitely with broken wrist

    Feb 11, 2012, 6:22 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    This is a big blow to a team that had been playing better than expected but with little margin for error. Cleveland forward Anderson Varejao is out indefinitely with a broken wrist, the team announced. The injury happened in the second half Friday night when Bucks forward Drew Gooden tried to slap the ball and…

  16. Brandon Jennings is “doing his homework on big-market teams,” but winning may entice him to stay with the Bucks

    Feb 10, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    Brandon Jennings made plenty of Bucks fans nervous on Friday, thanks to a quote about his thoughts on future free agency that was reported by Chris Broussard of ESPN.com “I am going to keep my options open, knowing that the time is coming up,” Jennings said. “I’m doing my homework on big-market teams.” The “big-market…

  17. Who got snubbed? Some All-Star roster changes

    Feb 9, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The All-Star rosters are out. The NBA coaches — who select the All-Star reserves — went with the old guard, the tried and true, and the guys whose names we know. Whether or not their play merited it this year. They ignored younger players who deserved it this year. There should be changes. Here are…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Magic cool off Heat

    Feb 9, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    What you missed while watching a guy get bit in the face by a dog on live television… Magic 102, Heat 89: Maybe the Magic owner should tell the media he doesn’t want to trade Dwight Howard before every game. Orlando played the game it wants to play — good defense (especially challenging in the…

  19. 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…

  20. Video: Steve Nash’s birthday present game winner

    Feb 8, 2012, 2:02 AM EDT

    Steve Nash, Grant Hill

    Steve Nash turned 38 on Tuesday. Don’t believe me? Here is a video of a guy in a pink gorilla suit singing happy birthday to him. Pink gorillas are not how Nash really likes to celebrate (as far as we know), hitting game winning shots is. Which is exactly what Nash did to the Milwaukee…

  21. 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…

  22. Weekend Observations 2.4.12: Where corn don’t grow

    Feb 4, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Each weekend we bring you 25 random observations from the NBA week that was.    1. Blake Griffin is not human. 2. Denver’s a really great team this season, they’re just not so impressive you know you can count on them in the WCF. The lack of star power is going to continue to be…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Sixers are legit

    Feb 2, 2012, 5:52 AM EDT

    iguodala

    What you missed while rock climbing with your 2-year-old strapped to your back… Sixers 98, Bulls 82: The 76ers are legit. That fast start wasn’t the soft schedule, they are a quality squad. Good ball movement will beat even the best defense, and that’s what the story was here. They have balance — five guys…

  24. Tuesday And-1 links: Judge tells Allen Iverson to pay up

    Feb 1, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Here is our daily 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). A judge has reached into Allen Iverson’s bank account to pay a jewelry store where Iverson bought more than $300,000 in bling but never paid…
