  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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,…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Wednesday night NBA grades: Vintage Dwyane Wade sighting

    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…

  11. 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…

  12. Bucks owner Herb Kohl seeking new investors to keep the team in Milwaukee

    Dec 16, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Terry Stotts Press Conference

    Bucks fans will spend the next 2-3 years looking over their shoulders at Seattle, and that’s because they’re in jeopardy of losing their basketball team should owner Herb Kohl fail at securing a new NBA-approved arena. For small and mid-markets, having a state-of-the-art arena to maximize revenues is a requirement and any city that isn’t…

  13. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  14. Report: Wherever Asik is traded it won’t be to New Orleans, Milwaukee

    Dec 13, 2013, 6:22 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    The Houston Rockets are set to trade valuable big man Omer Asik and want to get it done by next Thursday (the reason is anyone they get in a trade by then can be flipped again at the trading deadline, after that date they have the player for the rest of the season). Houston would…

  15. The Extra Pass: Bucks are bad, and that’s good; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    John Henson

    By D.J. Foster All over the league, we’ve seen young teams fighting against the tank. If the playoffs started today, the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns would be in the playoffs. This was unfathomable a few months ago. It wasn’t just about their rosters being bad – they were supposed to be bad. The Milwaukee…

  16. The Extra Pass: The league’s leading lineups; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    After watching two of the league’s best starting lineups duke it out in Indiana, let’s check in on the best and worst lineups around the league so far this season. Best Net Efficiency Rating (minimum 150 minutes) Houston: Patrick Beverley-James Harden-Chandler Parsons-Terrence Jones-Dwight Howard Net efficiency is the difference between a team’s offensive rating and…

  17. Bucks down another big man, Zaza Pachulia out month with fracture in foot

    Dec 9, 2013, 6:39 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    The Milwaukee Bucks were already without Larry Sanders, who needed surgery to repair torn ligaments in his hand after a bar fight, and now this. Zaza Pachulia will be out at least four weeks with a broken bone in his foot, coach Larry Drew announced Monday. It is the calcaneus bone, what most of us…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  19. The Extra Pass: A Google goggle revolution dream, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  20. Milwaukee police release video, cite Larry Sanders for bar fight

    Dec 4, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    Larry Sanders has been out since early November when he got involved in a bar fight and tore ligaments in his thumb so badly it required surgery to repair the hand. Sanders has since apologized to fans and the team for the incident. But it’s not over yet. Sanders has been cited twice for his…

    Dec 4, 2013, 2:13 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Orlando Magic

    If you were busy exploring our galaxy online and not watching hoops Monday then you missed the first time in NBA history that two rookies recorded triple-doubles in the same game. We’re here to help you out with our nightly grades from around the league. Michael Carter Williams, Philadelphia 76ers. The early leader in the…

  22. Bucks’ rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo is still physically growing

    Dec 3, 2013, 1:32 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    When measured at Adidas EuroCamp last year, Greece’s Giannis Antetokounmpo measured 6’9” with a reported 7’3” wingspan. Plus he has freakishly large hands. But he’s going to end up bigger than that — he’s still growing. That according to a story about Antetokounmpo in the Journal Times (hat tip to the still growing Zach Harper…

  23. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Heat and a lot from out West at the top

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite.   1.…

  24. Giannis Antetokounmpo with chasedown block, then dunk (VIDEO)

    Dec 1, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    That is why there is a buzz around Giannis Antetokounmpo. He’s young, he’s raw, he’s playing very limited minutes but he has the kind of athletic gifts you can’t teach. Like this highlight from the Bucks win over Boston Friday night, when he makes the chasedown block at one end, races back up the court on…

  25. Maurice Cheeks: Brandon Jennings doesn’t know how to play point guard yet

    Nov 30, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Maurice Cheeks, Brandon Jennings

    Flash back to the Pistons’ news conference to introduce Brandon Jennings. Joe Dumars in his opening statement, as transcribed by Matt Watson of Detroit Bad Boys: We also like the fact that he has five years of pro experience, one in Italy and four in Milwaukee. And we thought that he could step right in,…
