  1. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  2. O.J. Mayo and Brandon Knight just want the Bucks to get an identity already

    Jan 20, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Brandon Knight, O.J. Mayo

    The Milwaukee Bucks have not won a game in 2014. Considering the 7-33 Bucks are the NBA’s worst team, who knows when they’ll break their nine-game losing streak? They’re capable of winning any game – though all seven of their wins have come against teams with losing records – but they’re not going to be…

  3. Caron Butler not thrilled with limited roll of bench for Bucks

    Jan 17, 2014, 3:20 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks Media Day

    When Caron Butler was traded to the Bucks this summer, it was as everyone in the organization said “we’re not tanking” and the veteran forward was going to get minutes, be a mentor to the team’s young talent and help them try and make it back to the playoffs. In his last four games, Butler…

    US Airways Passenger Jet Crashes Into Hudson River By NYC

    LOS ANGELES — “They have to be shooting a movie or something.” That was Vince Carter’s first thought. Five years ago yesterday, the morning of Jan. 15, 2009, Carter woke up in the bedroom of his home in Edgewater New Jersey, and was lazily sitting on his bed just looking out the window of his…

    larry sanders

    In the second quarter of the Bucks’ loss to the Thunder on Saturday, Larry Sanders took himself out of the game. He delivered a couple of elbows above the neck to OKC’s Steven Adams, and the refs saw that activity and ruled it a flagrant foul. After video review, they determined it was a flagrant…

  8. Kevin Love calls out teammates after close home loss to Suns

    Jan 9, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The Timberwolves lost a tough one at home to the Suns on Wednesday, which is nothing really to be ashamed of. Phoenix has been one of the league’s nicer surprises in the first half of the season, and now sits at seventh in the West with a 21-13 overall record. Minnesota has struggled, and the…

  9. Report: Bucks ‘will do everything they can’ to trade Gary Neal before deadline

    Jan 8, 2014, 12:05 AM EDT

    Gary Neal Bucks

    When Gary Neal got into it with Larry Sanders in the locker room after a blowout loss to the Suns on Saturday, it wasn’t hard to figure out which player the franchise would be siding with. Neal is a reserve who’s under contract for just one season beyond this one at $3.2 million, while Sanders…

  10. Warriors get 10th straight victory by blowing out the Bucks

    Jan 7, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors won their 10th in a row on Tuesday, besting a Bucks team that has won just seven times all season and is at the bottom of the league-wide standings. The games still need to be played, however, and Golden State allowed Milwaukee to hang around for a half or so before blowing them…

  11. 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…

  12. Bucks’ Larry Sanders, Gary Neal argue in locker room following loss to Suns

    Jan 5, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    larry sanders

    The Bucks placed a lot of faith in Larry Sanders by signing him to a four-year, $44 million contract extension this summer, even though his game hadn’t reached a level worthy of that deal just yet. Not that the team had much of a choice — a developing big man will command those types of…

  13. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

  14. NBA warns Lakers’ Jodie Meeks for flopping

    Jan 2, 2014, 7:05 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Lakers

    Jodie Meeks — you know, one of the few healthy guards the Lakers have left on the roster — has been officially warned by the league for flopping. As he should have been. You can see the play above — it’s late in the Lakers loss to Bucks New Year’s Eve and the Lakers were dreaming…

  15. The Extra Pass: A rookie report (plus Wednesday’s recaps)

    Jan 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Due to injuries and the lack of a transcendent talent, this year’s draft class has been pretty underwhelming as a whole. Still, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been a few pleasant surprises along the way. Now that we’ve had a little more time to evaluate, let’s check in on three of the most impressive rookies…

  16. Pau Gasol practices with Lakers, will play Tuesday vs. Bucks

    Dec 30, 2013, 5:44 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    With questions about both if Pau Gasol could have played Sunday night for the Lakers and if he is really invested and giving the team his all this season comes this news: Gasol practiced with the Lakers Monday and will be back in the lineup Tuesday as the Lakers try to snap their five-game losing…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Even without Westbrook Thunder take top spot

    Dec 30, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder

    It’s legitimate to question how well Oklahoma City will fair in the roughly 27 games they will play without Russell Westbrook, but so far so good and that slides the to the top of the last power rankings of 2013. 1. Thunder (25-5, Last Week No. 2). They won all their games last week, but…

  18. Bucks’ John Henson out two weeks with ankle injury. That sucks.

    Dec 30, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

    John Henson

    In his last 10 games, Milwaukee’s John Henson has averaged 15.9 points a game on 56.3 percent shooting plus pulled down 10.7 rebounds a game. He has started to find a groove with this team and just as Larry Sanders has returned and we get to see the Bucks’ frontcourt of the future. Except now…

  19. Giannis Antetokounmpo drives for the dunk against Nets (VIDEO)

    Dec 27, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Giannis Antetokounmpo was largely a mystery heading into the draft, thanks to playing internationally where few ever got the chance to see him in person. When I was in Italy for adidas Eurocamp this past summer, he was playing a game in a half-empty gym about a 45-minute drive from where we were in Treviso,…

  20. Bucks to get Larry Sanders back Friday night.

    Dec 26, 2013, 6:26 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    Friday night, Larry Sanders gets a reset on his season. He didn’t like the way this season started. Over the summer he signed a new four-year, $44 million deal and management talked about him as a cornerstone defensive anchor for the team. Then new coach Larry Drew cut his minutes, going instead with Zaza Pachulia…

  21. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

  22. 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…

  23. Bucks “shut down” Ersan Ilyasova due to ankle injury

    Dec 19, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    Ersan Ilyasova

    Ersan Ilyasova has not been himself this season – the guy who averaged 13.2 points a game on 46.2 percent shooting and 44.4 percent from three last season is averaging 8.2 points a game on 38.3 percent shooing this season and 21.6 percent from three. His stats are like that across the board. To use…

    Dec 19, 2013, 2:23 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    Our quick look around a busy night in the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy some beer and pay for it with a live alligator…  Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat. The last time Wade scored 30 points or more in a game it was Game 4 of the NBA Finals, so it’s been…

  25. Tyson Chandler returns to Knicks lineup Wednesday night

    Dec 18, 2013, 1:45 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    The New York Knicks are a team that can’t win consistently without Tyson Chandler in the lineup. You can blame that on whomever you wish — coach Mike Woodson, management, James Dolan, Justin Bieiber, there is plenty of blame to go around — but it remains a fact they need him on defense to protect…
