  1. Wednesday night NBA Grades: LaMarcus Aldridge is a flat out stud

    Dec 5, 2013, 2:20 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Our nightly look around the NBA, or what you missed while figuring out how to use lasers to mark the first down line in the a football game…. LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. For my money right now he is the best power forward in the game. I’d rather have him over Kevin Love or…

  2. Bobcats’ Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffers left hand fracture

    Dec 4, 2013, 12:25 AM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Bobcats forward Michael Kidd Gilchrist suffered a left hand fracture against the Mavericks on Tuesday, the team announced. Kidd-Gilchrist left the game in the third quarter and did not return. X-rays revealed the fracture, and he will be re-evaluated on Wednesday when the club returns to Charlotte. Paul Pierce and Anthony Davis both suffered similar…

  3. Pelicans, Bulls play 3OT thriller (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 11:58 AM EDT

    Bulls vs. Pelicans

    Maybe  you were focused on watching the Seahawks mop the floor with the Saints. Or you were watching the Trail Blazers quality come-from-behind win over the Pacers. Or you just really want to know how somebody met your mother. Whatever else you were doing Monday night, if you missed the Pelicans’ 3OT win over the…

  4. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  5. Monday night NBA Grades: Tim Duncan does not age

    Dec 3, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v San Antonio Spurs

    We know you missed some NBA action Monday night between watching the Seahawks win and catching Ron Burgundy anchor an actual newscast. So to help you out, here are our NBA grades for Monday. Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs. Slump? What slump? With his 23 points and 21 rebounds Duncan became the oldest player in…

  6. Jrue Holiday with the driving game winner in 3OT (VIDEO)

    Dec 3, 2013, 1:18 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Chicago Bulls

    Chicago and New Orleans played one of the more epic matches of the season on Monday night — it wasn’t always pretty, but it was epic. And long. Triple-overtime long. There was no Derrick Rose, no Anthony Davis, yet still some good offense from both sides led by Luol Deng (37 points) and Ryan Anderson…

  7. PBT Extra: Talking Anthony Davis, also just how good is Portland?

    Dec 2, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    The Portland Trail Blazers are 14-3, on top of the Western Conference and the story of November in the NBA — but just how good are they, really? The always sensational Kay Adams and I discuss the Blazers start on the latest edition of PBT Extra. I’m not sold they are as good as their…

  8. 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.…

  9. Carmelo Anthony: “I think we’re playing to lose”

    Dec 2, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    I’m not sure what more can be said about the Knicks play right now after nine straight losses. Carmelo Anthony was searching for a way to describe New York’s play and was rightfully harsh in his assessment after a loss Sunday at home to a New Orleans team that had to play most of the…

  10. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

  11. Sunday night NBA Grades: Turns out Kevin Durant is good at basketball

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:55 AM EDT

    Oklahoma Thunder v Utah Jazz

    Maybe it’s the remnants of the tryptophan talking, but I am handing out nothing but “A” grades tonight… except for the Knicks. I’m feeling generous. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. How about this line for KD: 32 points on 66.7 percent shooting, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, 4 steals, 4 blocks. He did pretty much everything…

  12. Pelicans’ Anthony Davis breaks hand, out indefinitely

    Dec 1, 2013, 9:27 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Memphis Grizzlies

    This one hurts. It’s a blow to the gut of a Pelicans team trying to find its stride, a blow to the breakout year a young star was having, and it could be a blow to the All-Star Game coming to his city in a couple months. New Orleans’ Anthony Davis broke a bone in…

  13. Pelicans “big five” rotation an offensive force… and a defensive mess

    Nov 30, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    When people were excited to watch the Pelicans this season — I had them as my league pass team — it was with this rotation in mind: Jrue Holiday at the point, Eric Gordon at the two, Tyreke Evans at the three, with Ryan Anderson as a stretch four and Anthony Davis as their best…

  14. Report: Rockets asking price for Omer Asik “delusional”

    Nov 29, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Yes, the Houston Rockets are looking to trade Omer Asik and they almost certainly will before the trade deadline. However it’s likely not happening soon because the difference between what the Rockets see as his value and other teams are willing to give up for him are not in the same zip code. It’s basically…

  15. Five things I’m thankful for in the NBA today

    Nov 28, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I’m thankful for a lot of things today. I’m thankful for a job that lets me watch as much basketball as I want. I’m thankful to live in a country where this is possible (and I’m thankful for the people who defend it). I’m thankful for a family that is the best part of my…

  16. 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…

  17. Tuesday night NBA Grades: John Wall has found his groove

    Nov 27, 2013, 2:37 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Washington Wizards

    Here’s a quick swing through the NBA for a Tuesday night, or you missed while seeing how far you could launch a pumpkin…  John Wall, Washington Wizards. No Bradley Beal so they need big games from him and they got it Tuesday in a win over a Lakers team that had been playing good defense…

  18. The Extra Pass: Behind San Antonio’s hot start and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    At least in the standings, the San Antonio Spurs are as good as they’ve ever been. By walloping the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, San Antonio tied their franchise best for a start to the season. The Spurs are 13-1 now and winners of 11 straight games. What can you say? I ran out of…

  19. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  20. Report: Marc Gasol suffered Grade 2 MCL sprain and is out indefinitely

    Nov 23, 2013, 1:39 PM EDT

    GASOL_MARC

    We had an inkling this would be bad. In a loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, Memphis Grizzlies big man Marc Gasol clutched his left knee and suffered what appeared to be a non-contact injury. Those types of injuries can be awfully scary, and the fears of it being serious were only amplified…

  21. That Houston’s Asik for New Orleans’ Anderson trade? Don’t bet on it.

    Nov 22, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    On paper it seems like a great trade. The Rockets really want a stretch four to go next to Dwight Howard and Ryan Anderson may be the best in the business. The Pelicans have a budding young superstar in Anthony Davis they could use a solid big who can do some of the dirty work…

  22. 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…

  23. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  24. Monday And-1 Links: Craig Sager’s best suits

    Nov 18, 2013, 8:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • The 10 best/worst suits of Craig Sager. Glad somebody finally put this together.…

  25. 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…
