  1. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  2. Sunday night NBA grades: Tony Parker is back and looks good

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:12 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking “I really should see that movie”…. Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs. In case you forgot, he’s really good at basketball. He wasn’t really getting going in transition yet, but he was dominant in the half court, scoring 10 of the first 17 Spurs…

  3. PBT Podcast: Your twitter questions get us talking Clippers’ moves, Knicks’ future

    Mar 1, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Clippers

    We’re back with the latest PBT Podcast and today you set the topics — myself and  Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss your twitter questions. First up we discuss the Clippers moves at the buyout deadline — I think getting Glen Davis is huge, Danny Granger on the other hand is not better than Jared…

  4. It’s official: Danny Granger is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers

    Feb 28, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    Portland Trailblazers v Indiana Pacers

    Doc Rivers realized earlier this season that this Clippers roster was not going to be enough to contend in the West. Now during buyout season he’s gone and added some talent. Glen Davis as the third big will be the most important addition — he’s solid and that makes him a massive upgrade over Ryan…

  5. The Extra Pass: Is the second tier in West ready to challenge Thunder, Spurs?

    Feb 28, 2014, 8:51 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    We know Oklahoma City is a contender — despite their little three-game blip as they re-adjust to Russell Westbrook in the lineup, they are still 21-7 when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook both play this season, they have a top-10 offense and defense when you look at points per possession. The same is true of…

  6. Reports: Danny Granger will sign with Clippers when he clears waivers Friday

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Doc Rivers has been looking for some help at the three — Jared Dudley has not panned out as hoped and Matt Barnes is solid as a reserve but not the guy who starts on a contender. Rivers even tried Hedo Turkoglu in that role. Now Danny Granger is going to get a chance. Granger,…

  7. Washington Wizards reportedly tried hard to trade for Jameer Nelson

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:12 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson, Jonas Valanciunas

    It was no secret the Washington Wizards needed point guard help behind John Wall. It’s also no secret the rebuilding Orlando Magic are no longer a great fit for 32-year-old Jameer Nelson. The two teams would have made sense as trade partners before last week’s deadline. In fact, the Wizards reportedly really wanted to be…

  8. Clipper defense, Darren Collison lead L.A. to win over Houston

    Feb 27, 2014, 3:32 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    For both the Clippers and the Rockets, the conventional wisdom is the same: If they can defend well and consistently in the playoffs they move into contender status. Wednesday night it was the Clippers that defended when it mattered — the Rockets shot just 33 percent in the fourth quarter. Combine that with some impressive…

  9. Glen Davis will sign with Clippers Monday, could play vs. Pelicans Monday night

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:57 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:58 pm: The Clippers have announced it is official, Glen Davis is now a member of the team. “I’ve always made the Playoffs in my career and not playing for something was crazy,” Davis said in a released statement. “Being on this team is some fresh energy, knowing that you can help a team…

  10. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  11. Nets make it official, announce signing of Jason Collins to 10-day contract

    Feb 23, 2014, 3:41 PM EDT

    collins signs

    The Nets announced the signing of Jason Collins to a 10-day contract on Sunday, making him the first openly gay, active professional athlete to play for any of the four major professional sports leagues in the country. While that’s a milestone certainly worth celebrating, the best part of the Collins signing is that it has…

  12. Report: Glen Davis committing to Clippers, Nets to then sign Jason Collins

    Feb 23, 2014, 12:29 PM EDT

    Jason Collins

    Glen Davis has chosen his old coach over his old teammate. Well, that’s not the whole story. It appears Davis will choose the Los Angeles Clippers as his next destination, a spot where he moves to a team on the cusp of contending (how close is up for debate) where they are in desperate need…

  13. Quote of the Day: Kevin Garnett profanely clarifies his relationship with Glen Davis

    Feb 22, 2014, 9:00 PM EDT

    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Kevin Garnett listens during a news conference introducing him in Brooklyn

    There are plenty of teams interested in signing Glen Davis for the remainder of the season after he agreed to a buyout of his contract with the Orlando Magic. The Nets and the Clippers are believed to be the front runners, mainly because of the ties Davis has to Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in…

  14. Deron Williams admits signing Jason Collins would be a ‘media circus’

    Feb 22, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    NBA player Jason Collins marches in the Gay Pride Parade in Boston

    The Nets are reportedly considering signing Jason Collins to a 10-day contract, though they’d like to see how things shake out with Glen Davis first before going down that road. Collins hasn’t played since last season, but made headlines by coming out as gay once his team was eliminated from postseason contention. It was a…

  15. Magic reach buyout with Glen Davis; Clippers, Nets considered frontrunners for his services

    Feb 21, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

    NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 06: Glen Davis #11 of the Orlando Magic reacts to a call in the first quarter against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on December 6, 2013 in New York City.

    What everyone has expected has become official: The Orlando Magic and Glen Davis have reached an agreement on a buyout. Once Davis clears waivers and the buyout is official, he will be a free agent. The real question is where does he land now? He is being recruited by former coach Doc Rivers to the…

  16. Report: Magic reach buyout agreement with Glen Davis

    Feb 20, 2014, 10:31 PM EDT

    NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 06: Glen Davis #11 of the Orlando Magic reacts to a call in the first quarter against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on December 6, 2013 in New York City.

    Glen Davis has been up and down for the Magic this season, but has a unique skill set that could benefit a whole host of teams. And Orlando, in the midst of a rebuilding phase has a number of young players they’d like to check out instead of giving the somewhat established Davis those minutes.…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

  18. Lillard repeats as Skills Challenge champion, partnered with Trey Burke

    Feb 15, 2014, 10:15 PM EDT

    2014 Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    NEW ORLEANS — Damian Lillard’s busy All-Star Saturday night started out pretty darn well — with a repeat win. Lillard will be in all three major events on the evening and first out of the gate he and Trey Burke teamed up to win the NBA All-Star Saturday Skills Challenge — by just one tenth…

  19. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

  20. Report: Wizards interested in Nuggets’ Andre Miller, but a trade is difficult

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    It’s always about the money. As we near the trade deadline remember that: It is always about the money. The Washington Wizards could argue they are the third best team in the East. It’s a dubious honor this season and the title seems to change hands weekly between the Wizards, Raptors and Nets, but all…

  21. Minnesota’s Flip Saunders says strength of draft could dampen trade deadline

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:53 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves 2013 NBA Draft Picks Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng Introduced to the Media

    Last season’s trade deadline was a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing — it was a very slow trade deadline, the bigger deals having already happened. This season seems to be more active and with some bigger names — Pau Gasol could be moved, as potentially could guys like Greg Monroe. Names like Brandon…

  22. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  23. Report: Teams reaching out to Celtics about Brandon Bass

    Feb 10, 2014, 1:22 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Boston is expected to be an active team at the trade deadline — they are a franchise looking ahead to the draft and rebuilding, plus they have some assets that are attractive to other teams. Brandon Bass is apparently at the top of that list. The veteran big man is generating a lot of calls…

  24. Orlando Magic mascot proposed to Kate Upton… she didn’t say no

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    via @STUFF_Mascot on twitter

    This would be the biggest story out of Sunday’s Orlando Magic comeback win over the Pacers — sorry Victor Oladipo, you played fantastically in the fourth quarter to spark the win, but this is bigger: Stuff, the Orlando Magic mascot, proposed to Kate Upton Sunday — and went with the Dumb and Dumber reference to…

  25. Sunday night NBA grades: It’s Kevin Durant’s world we just live in it

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:08 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jeopardy to see what all the Arthur Chu fuss is about…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. If you are going to win the MVP award you need a couple monster games on national television. Durant delivered that on Sunday — 41 points, 10…
