  1. Report: Pelicans shopping around Eric Gordon, his huge contract

    Jan 10, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans  v Indiana Pacers

    There was a time three years ago when Eric Gordon looked like the best young two guard in the NBA, a guy on the rise who could be a key cornerstone of a franchise. Then came a lot of injuries (and a lot of questions about rehab, and questions about his desire to play in…

  2. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out indefinitely with stress fracture in leg

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    Ugh. The list of quality point guards currently out injured in the NBA includes Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Eric Bledsoe (even if he played some two guard)… And now Jrue Holiday. Pelicans starting point guard Holiday has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right tibia and will be out…

  3. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  4. The Extra Pass: The Raptors press pause, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

  5. Anthony Davis with a ridiculous putback dunk (VIDEO)

    Jan 8, 2014, 4:56 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    One last highlight from Tuesday night’s action before we get into Wednesday’s game — Anthony Davis can throw it down. This Davis putback dunk is just impressive (as was LeBron’s alley-oop finish in this game). Davis finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough against the Heat. Davis is going to be…

  6. Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson out indefinitely with herniated disc in back

    Jan 7, 2014, 11:04 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    You knew it wasn’t good when he had to be taken off the court in a stretcher, you just wonder now if the Pelicans playoff hopes were carted off with him. The Pelicans’ leading scorer Ryan Anderson will be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back, the team announced Tuesday. The injury occurred…

  7. 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…

  8. Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson leaves on a stretcher in Boston (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:36 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    Scary moment in Boston on Friday, when the Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson was carted off the floor on a stretcher after a collision with Gerald Wallace of the Celtics. Anderson appeared to be talkative and moving all limbs throughout the process, and gave a thumbs up as he left the floor which we hope is a…

  9. 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…

  10. Andre Miller benched vs. Sixers, yells at Denver coach Brian Shaw for it

    Jan 2, 2014, 11:22 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets

    During the Nuggets now eight-game losing streak Denver  coach Brian Shaw has shifted away from using veteran reserve guard Andre Miller. Over the first 20 games this season Miller averaged 20 minutes a night but that has dwindled and in the previous three games Miller played 15 minutes, then 11, then nine… Wednesday night he…

  11. Anthony Davis with alley-oop poster on Joel Freeland (VIDEO)

    Dec 31, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Pelicans’ Anthony Davis can throw it down with the best of them. Just ask Portland’s Joel Freeland, who gets caught in the middle trying to take away the Jrue Holiday driving lane and not really watching his roll man Davis, and by the time Freeland reacts to the alley-oop pass it is entirely to…

  12. The Extra Pass: The best dunks of 2013; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    If the end of a year serves as a time for reflection and the remembrance of lessons learned, then let the video below serve as one last reminder for the small guards of the league. If LeBron James is coming at you on a break, move. If DeAndre Jordan is flying down the lane towards…

  13. Monday night NBA grades: Shawn Marion jumps in hot tub time machine

    Dec 31, 2013, 2:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while getting sucked into a replay of Shawshank Redemption… Shawn Marion, Dallas Mavericks. Apparently pregame Marion hopped in the Hot Tub Time Machine and the 2003 version of himself showed up for this one — 32 points on 14-of-19 shooting, plus he pulled down six…

  14. Damian Lillard, Tyreke Evans trade clutch shots at end of Blazers’ loss to Pelicans (VIDEO)

    Dec 30, 2013, 11:28 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Los Angeles Lakers

    Wild finish to Monday’s game between the Blazers and the Pelicans. New Orleans had itself in position to win thanks to the play of Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis, who both made several key plays all night long, including in the game’s final period. But it was Tyreke Evans who drained the game-winner, a 15-footer…

  15. 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…

  16. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  17. 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…

  18. Monday night NBA grades: LeBron James flashes his MVP credentials

    Dec 24, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about NBA Jam legend Mike Iuzzolino…  LeBron James, Miami Heat. No Dwyane Wade. Chris Bosh left late in the game after Paul Millsap elbowed his jaw. Other Heat players struggled (we’re looking at you, Mario Chalmers). Yet there was LeBron James to carry the…

  19. 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…

  20. Pelicans reach deal with French center Alexis Ajinca

    Dec 20, 2013, 4:07 PM EDT

    Ajinca_Alexis

    The last time we saw French center Alexis Ajinca in an NBA game it was 2011 with the Raptors. He had been a bit player with Dallas and Charlotte before that. Now he’s back getting another shot with the New Orleans Pelicans, reports the Times Picayune. The New Orleans Pelicans have reached a two-year contract…

  21. The Extra Pass: Golden State’s Elevator Screen plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s Golden State’s Elevator screen play: The “Elevator” screen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing plays you’ll see in the league, particularly when it’s run by Golden State. That’s in large part because any possession that ends in a…

  22. 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…

  23. The Extra Pass: The Spurs’ Hammer set; plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 18, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs head coach Popovich talks to Duncan during the third quarter of play against the Miami Heat in Game 5 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    The Signature Series takes a look at a play that’s largely unique to one team. Here’s San Antonio’s “Hammer” set. The San Antonio Spurs don’t get enough credit for keeping up with the times. Although the end result is often the same as it has always been – Tim Duncan facing up and banking a…

  24. Google’s most searched NBA player in 2013? LeBron. Top trending team? Do you have to ask?

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Google search records are not the best way to test the popularity of something, but it is a pretty democratic way. Bottom line is you find out who people want to find out more about. As a fun little NBA treat, Google released Tuesday their most searched NBA players… and if you have to guess…

  25. 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…
