Paul Pierce

  1. Paul Pierce practiced Monday, could return vs. Celtics Tuesday

    Dec 9, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    Tuesday night the Nets could get Paul Pierce and Deron Williams back on the court. Which would be a nice first step toward turning Brooklyn’s tire fire of a season around. Both Pierce and Williams went through practice on Monday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. We knew Williams was close to returning, however Pierce…

  2. Doc Rivers says rift between Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett ‘will be fixed’

    Dec 8, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    When Ray Allen chose to leave Boston as a free agent and join Eastern Conference rival Miami following the 2012 season, it didn’t sit well at all with two of the Celtics’ biggest stars. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were upset by Allen’s decision, even though he wasn’t guaranteed a thing in Boston and was…

  3. Report: Jason Kidd safe as Nets coach until team gets healthy

    Dec 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    The Nets are going through an especially rough time right now, and even mentioning as much seems like a gross understatement of the facts. Brooklyn has lost several of its key players due to injury, including Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Andrei Kirilenko, and Jason Terry. Head coach Jason Kidd parted ways with assistant Lawrence Frank…

  4. Brook Lopez says this Nets season “more bizarre” than 12-win campaign

    Dec 6, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    Brook Lopez’s second season in the NBA the Nets went an ugly 12-70 (with him as their best player). This wasn’t a team trying to tank for the draft — the Nets got the third pick thanks to the lottery and chose Derrick Favors, who was moved in the Deron Williams deal — this was…

  5. Thursday night NBA Grades: Mike Woodson is allowed to exhale

    Dec 6, 2013, 2:38 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    Our nightly grades from around the NBA, or what you missed while singing Doe, a deer, a female deer… Ray, a drop of golden sun… Mike Woodson, coach New York Knicks. For a night, the Knicks looked pretty good and so Woodson can sleep without the Sword of Damocles hanging over his head. The core…

  6. Knicks and Nets might not remain so mockable for long, so enjoy it while you can

    Dec 5, 2013, 1:33 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    The Knicks and Nets as engaged in a thrilling competition: Which team is the biggest laughingstocks in the NBA? Both can lay claim. They have oversized payrolls, cartoonish owners, coaches on the hot seat and underwhelming stars. The Knicks have seen Metta World Peace and Kenyon Martin feud, and the Nets have matched with Jason…

  7. Stan Van Gundy: “I don’t think this is on Jason Kidd”

    Dec 5, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    With the Nets off to a 5-13 start in the East, there is a lot of finger pointing going on. Losing does that. That includes fingers at first-year coach Jason Kidd, who recently demoted lead assistant Lawrence Frank to be basically the highest paid video coordinator in the NBA. The Nets offense has been isolation…

  8. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    brook lopez joe johnson kg

    NEW YORK — If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.…

  11. Another blow to Nets: Paul Pierce out 2-4 weeks with broken hand

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Basketball Gods are treating the Brooklyn Nets like Odysseus. The already injury plagued 5-12 Brooklyn Nets will be without Paul Pierce for 2-4 weeks due to a broken third metacarpal bone in his right hand the team announced Monday. That is the bone that basically connects your middle finger to your wrist. The injury…

  12. Paul Pierce out Saturday against Grizzlies due to hand injury

    Nov 30, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    UPDATE 7:14 p.m.: Paul Pierce is now officially out Saturday against the Grizzlies. 3:30 p. m.: Injuries have been the story do far this season for the Brooklyn Nets, a team many expected to be legitimate contenders in the Eastern Conference. The latest one is to Paul Pierce, who isn’t expected to play when the…

  13. Jason Kidd admits he “probably” shouldn’t have spilled drink but was “trying to win”

    Nov 29, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    If you have a really clever idea to get your team a timeout at the end of a game — say for example having your player run into you so you spill your drink on the court — save it for a late season or playoff game when it matters, don’t waste it in November.…

  14. 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…

  15. Wednesday night NBA Grades: Phoenix has a couple dangerous backcourt players

    Nov 28, 2013, 2:36 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    We’re feeling generous so no bad grades out of of action in the NBA on Thanksgiving eve. Here are our grades for the nigh from games you might have missed while trying to smell like DeAndre Jordan…  Goran Dragic, Phoenix Suns. Portland had an 11-game win streak thanks to their offense, but the Blazers defense…

  16. With game in balance, Jason Kidd tells player to “hit me,” spills drink, gets psuedo timeout to draw up play

    Nov 28, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    This is very clever by Nets coach Jason Kidd. Oh, he’s going to get a healthy fine from the league for this, but it was clever. The Nets were down two with 8.3 seconds left in the game and the Lakers’ Jodie Meeks was on the free throw line. The Nets were going to get…

  17. Wes Johnson gets up for the reverse slam on Paul Pierce (VIDEO)

    Nov 27, 2013, 9:42 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers’ Wesley Johnson is as athletic as they come, and he got the opportunity to put some of that skill on display in the first quarter against the Nets on Wednesday. While Paul Pierce ultimately ends up on the poster here, to be fair to him his decision to contest came when it was…

  18. That is one relieved Jason Kidd after Nets win (VIDEO)

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Brooklyn did their best to choke away a win Tuesday. Toronto went on a 14-0 run in the final minutes to get it within two (after the Nets did not play the free throw game well), and they had a shot at tying it. (Go read our nightly NBA Grades to see what I thought…

  19. Kevin Garnett on Nets: “I think everybody here is embarrassed”

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:22 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    Frustration bubbling to the surface in the Nets locker room is understandable — after five straight losses and falling to 3-10 on the season Sunday with a loss to the Pistons I’d be more worried if they weren’t a little angry. Brooklyn has one of the worst defenses in the NBA so far this season…

  20. Report: Nets’ coach Jason Kidd has backing of management

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:24 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Brooklyn Nets are a hot mess. They have key injuries (Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Andrei Kirilenko, Jason Terry), they have an offense that devolves into isolation plays that are easy to defend, and they have a defense that is without cohesion (especially when Brook Lopez is out). They have lost five in a…

  21. Nets players stick up for coach, say Jason Kidd not the problem

    Nov 20, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Washington Wizards

    There is not one problem with the Brooklyn Nets this season, there are many — injuries, Kevin Garnett looking his age, an offense that devolves quickly into isolations. However, in the NBA where star players are at a premium and everyone has guaranteed contracts, it is coaches who shoulder the blame. That has already started…

  22. Monday night NBA grades: A tale of two Brooklyn halves

    Nov 19, 2013, 1:37 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while watching Jean-Claude Van Damme do the splits between two moving trucks… Brooklyn Nets first quarter offense. With all that talent on the roster we expected some big nights from Brooklyn and it looked like we would finally get one (even if…

  23. 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…

  24. Report: Knicks covet Rajon Rondo, made laughable offer to Boston

    Nov 17, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    It is possible Danny Ainge will trade Rajon Rondo — he seriously talked offers for him when they had Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, you think he won’t consider it now that they are rebuilding? But he’s not giving Rondo away for the spare change in the couch. Which brings us to this note about…

  25. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett didn’t come to the arena for Nets’ loss to Clippers

    Nov 17, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Newly acquired Net's NBA players attend a news conference introducing them to the media in Brooklyn

    Most of the time in the NBA, if a team’s star players are going to miss a game due to injury, they will still accompany their teammates to the arena and either receive treatment in the locker room while the game is going on, or wear a suit and represent on the sidelines. Paul Pierce…
