    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.…

  4. 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…

  5. 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,…

  6. The Extra Pass: Nets believe they’re headed in the right direction, and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:10 AM EDT

    joe johnson steve blake

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  7. The Extra Pass: Gumbo and The Brow, and Tuesday night’s recap

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    The New Orleans Pelicans roster was assembled with all the care of an inebriated person making gumbo. Three ball-dominant guards in addition to the ball-dominant guard we just drafted? Sure, that will work. A stretch 4 and a stretch 5? Toss ‘em in. The individual pieces in New Orleans are talented, to be certain, but…

  8. Dirk Nowitzki warned for flop vs. Nuggets (VIDEO)

    Nov 26, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping. Nowitzki earned his in the third quarter of the Mavericks’ loss to Denver Monday night, when Darrell Arthur closed out and contested the jumper and Nowitzki fell like he was reenacting the Kennedy…

  9. Caron Butler doesn’t like Brandon Jennings showing up the Bucks

    Nov 26, 2013, 1:30 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings traded barbs with his old team this offseason and then finally got his chance to prove his point on the court Monday. He did. Jennings scored an efficient 15 points and added 13 assists and two steals, leading the Pistons to a 19-point win over the Bucks. It was already fulfilling revenge for…

  10. Sixers’ Spencer Hawes hits contested, twisting three to force overtime (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes Sixers

    Spencer Hawes ladies and gentlemen. With the Sixers down three and 3.9 seconds left against the Bucks, Hawes set a pick then slid down the sideline and wasn’t option No. 1 on the play — plus Gary Neal had him well defended — but Hawes got the pass and went up with it, knocking down…

  11. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  13. Report: Omer Asik changes course (somewhat), ready to play for Rockets

    Nov 18, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    35973186b1f6fecf2a99f40715a2e485

    Omer Asik, who requested a trade from the Rockets last week, has missed both of Houston’s games since his request became public. Asik has not hidden his desire to leave the Rockets since they signed Dwight Howard and this was just taking the process a step further. Forcing a trade is not a pleasant process,…

  14. Pacers improve to 9-0 with blowout win over Bucks

    Nov 15, 2013, 10:41 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert, Andre Drummond

    The Pacers remain undefeated after running their league-best record to 9-0 with a blowout 104-77 win over the Bucks. Milwaukee is a depleted team right now due to multiple players being injured, and there’s not nearly enough depth to sustain even one starter being out, much less multiple productive players. Larry Sanders, Caron Butler, and…

  15. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  16. Three things to watch this weekend: Can the Pacers keep winning? The Nets stop losing?

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert Pacers

    There are a lot of interesting subplots we at PBT will watch as we head into this weekend — such ask, how loud can Sacramento Kings fans yell? — but here are the three things worth watching out for between going to you kid’s talent show and soccer games…. 1) Can the Pacers improve to…

  17. Caron Butler latest in long list of Bucks sidelined with injury

    Nov 15, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks are one banged up team. Point guards Brandon Knight and Luke Ridnour are not medially cleared to play Friday night (that could change with Ridnour, but he was out as of this writing). Reserve shooting guard Gary Neal has a foot injury that kept him out of the last game. Small forward…

  18. Sam Cassell doesn’t like seeing guys fined for the Sam Cassell dance

    Nov 14, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Sam cassell

    It’s been called the big balls dance among other things, but we associate it with Sam Cassell — you hit a big shot, a dagger, and as you come back up the court you drop your hands down like you are cupping some extra large… um… cajones. It’s a popular move, something that makes Cassell…

  19. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  20. Mario Chalmers finds LeBron with the pass through a defender’s legs (VIDEO)

    Nov 12, 2013, 11:12 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    You knew the Heat would be all business at home against the Bucks on Tuesday after LeBron James came out publicly and owned up to just how awful Miami’s defense has been to start the season. Milwaukee wasn’t expected to provide much of a challenge, and this play symbolizes perfectly just how much the Heat…

  21. Bucks’ Larry Sanders has thumb surgery for injury from bar fight, out six weeks

    Nov 11, 2013, 7:49 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders

    The bar fight that Bucks star Larry Sanders was in has become very costly. Very. Monday he had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb suffered in that incident and he will now be out about six weeks, something the team announced. The surgery was performed by Dr. Curt Crimmins, a hand…

  22. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  23. Carlos Delfino says on his Website he will have foot surgery, likely miss season

    Nov 11, 2013, 12:19 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    Carlos Delfino had foot surgery back in May (he injured it during the Rockets’ playoff series and was expected to miss 4-6 months). However, the Bucks signed him over the summer and the original prognosis made you think he would be suiting up for Milwaukee by training camp. Then that got pushed back to the…

  24. Larry Sanders apologizes for nightclub incident that’s caused him to miss time with a thumb injury

    Nov 9, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Marquis Daniels, Larry Sanders

    The Bucks put a lot of faith in Larry Sanders this offseason in signing him to a four-year, $44 million contract extension, and since then he’s done little to show he’s deserving of that trust. On the court, Sanders has been underwhelming in his first three games of the year, with averages of just 2.7…

  25. Zaza Pachulia to buy Bucks old court (once they are done with it)

    Nov 7, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    milwaukee-bucks court

    It is a really good idea — the Milwaukee Bucks went and hired an artist to design their new court, and he came up with a throwback court honoring their days playing at the MECCA. It was very clever. Only problem was, it wasn’t finished properly, so much so that in a preseason game it…
