    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos…. Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: A Celtics team on the second night of a back-to-back where the first game went three overtimes ran into a Bobcats that doesn’t have a lot going for it but…

  2. Clippers took Lob City show to Philadelphia (VIDEO)

    Blake Griffin

    When the Clippers have got it going — and facing a defense not quick enough or long enough to stop them — they can put on the best show in the NBA. That show came to Philadelphia on Monday and while the hometown fans watched their team get rolled (they could have used someone like…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  4. In midst of slump, Evan Turner tries to shrug off trade rumors

    Feb 10, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    There is the buzz — the Philadelphia 76ers are testing the trade waters for Evan Turner. Maybe just to gauge his market value, but they are asking around. There is the reality — Turner is in the middle of a shooting slump. In his last five games he is averaging 7.2 points a game on…

  5. Report: Philadelphia testing market for Evan Turner

    Feb 9, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Evan Turner

    The idea was to pair Evan Turner on the wing with Jrue Holiday at the point, then put Andrew Bynum in the paint and suddenly you have the beginnings of a pretty good team in the East. And maybe that still works out, we have yet to see Andrew Bynum on the court and how…

  6. 2013 All-Star Saturday Skills Challenge participants announced

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Tony Parker

    Tony Parker will defend his title in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge during All-Star Saturday night in Houston, and he’ll have some exciting players joining him in the event. The remainder of the field will consist of Jrue Holiday of the Philadelphia 76ers, Brandon Knight of the Detroit Pistons, Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  8. Philadelphia 76ers guard Jason Richardson out for season with knee injury

    Feb 6, 2013, 8:46 PM EDT

    Jason Richardson

    The race for the 8-seed in the Eastern Conference might be won by whichever team can simply stay healthy. Boston has obviously suffered big blows, but Philadelphia is right there with them. Already missing Thaddeus Young for three weeks because of a hamstring strain and Andrew Bynum for who knows how long, the Sixers received even…

  9. Will Rockets make run at Andrew Bynum this summer? Will others?

    Feb 6, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s part of the NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement — it is better financially for a potential free agent to become a free agent and re-sign with his team than to just sign an extension. So even if a sure max player has no intention of leaving a team, he has to at least dip…

  10. Tuesday And-1links: Chris Paul could be back this weekend

    Feb 5, 2013, 5:43 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    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 Clippers have lost seven of nine and need something to get them…

  11. Thaddeus Young out three weeks with hamstring strain

    Feb 5, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Philadelphia is going to be without their best big man this season — their second leading scorer and leading rebounder — for about the next three weeks. Thaddeus Young will be out that long with a strained hamstring suffered Monday night against the Orlando Magic, reports Dei Lynam at CSNPhilly.com. Thaddeus Young underwent an MRI…

  12. Sixers Nick Young with breakaway 360 slam (VIDEO)

    Feb 5, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Nick Young

    It is moments like this where I wish there was a “Doug Collins cam” that just tracked the reactions of the old-school, no-frills Philly coach. I bet he thoroughly enjoyed Nick Young‘s dunk. Young had the steal and the breakaway early in the Sixers rout of the Magic and since he had the time he…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Pacers, Bulls get together for shootout

    Feb 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Pacers' West shoots the basketball defended by Bulls' Boozer during the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while building a nuclear fusion reactor in your garage like any normal teenager…. Pacers 111, Bulls 101: If you were expecting a defense struggle between two of the top three defenses in the Association… well, sorry. There wasn’t a lot of defense and…

  14. Thaddeus Young leaves game with hamstring injury (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2013, 9:27 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Monday night was an easy win for the Sixers — they raced out to a 22-6 lead and really the rest of the game was pretty sloppy and ugly — but it came with a price for Philly: They lost Thaddeus Young to a hamstring injury. You can see what happened in the video above…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  16. adidas Basketball unveils All-Star edition shoes for Dwight Howard, Jrue Holiday, and Tim Duncan

    Feb 2, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star 2013 (L_R - Crazy Fast, D Howard Light, Crazy Light 2

  17. Bynum receives injections to “cushion” knees for rest of season

    Jan 31, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Let’s get this out of the way first — this is not a setback. I know people can get skittish when you talk Andrew Bynum and knees, but things are still on track. This was planned, it was the next step in the process and the timeline for Bynum to finally make his debut with…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: For one night at least Celtics look fine post-Rondo

    Jan 31, 2013, 9:34 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while thinking you may have finally found the perfect job… Suns 92, Lakers 86: Ouch. You can apply that one word sentence to Dwight Howard’s shoulder, he left the game midway through the fourth quarter and did not return, seeming to aggravate his…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Crazy endings all across the league

    Jan 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    George Hill, Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were getting your last Whopper Jr. — and I mean last Whopper Jr…. Nuggets 102, Pacers 101: It was the last game of a six-game road trip for the Pacers against an up-tempo Nuggets squad, and Indy was down 13 in…

  20. Andrew Bynum dunking, still plans return soon after All-Star break

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    The dynamic around Andrew Bynum’s return to the 76ers has changed. Before it was something to watch as Philly brass thought about what kind of contract to offer him this summer. But with the injury to Rajon Rondo and the Sixers just 2.5 games back heading into Monday night, a playoff spot seems possible again.…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs back in the saddle again

    Jan 28, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

    Tony Parker

    You know the consistently good Spurs are going to climb into the top spot a couple times during the season. The top four remain the same but we see some teams fall farther down the list while teams like the Wizards and Hornets climb. 1. Spurs (36-11, last week ranked No. 2). They have won…

  22. So who gets Rajon Rondo’s All-Star slot?

    Jan 28, 2013, 8:29 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Houston Rockets

    Don’t we all just love it when David Stern and the league office get to put their fingerprints all over the All-Star Game? But with Rajon Rondo now out with a torn ACL in his right knee, it falls to Stern to make changes to the East roster for the Feb. 17 game in Houston.…

  23. Kenneth Faried would like you to meet his two mothers

    Jan 27, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    That would be “Manimal.” Also known as Kenneth Faried. A whirlwind of energy and an absolute beast on the boards. One of the hardest working players in the NBA. And he would like you to meet his two mothers and hear his support of them. Good for him, good for taking a stand. Professional sports…

  24. Jrue Holiday scores a career-high 35 as Sixers rout Knicks

    Jan 27, 2013, 12:04 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers guard Holiday shoots past the defense of the New York Knicks Chandler during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Jrue Holiday was one of five Eastern Conference players named as an All-Star reserve on Thursday who will be making their first career appearance in the NBA’s midseason exhibition. Someone should have told him he already earned the honor. Holiday exploded for a career-high 35 points, to go along with five rebounds and six assists…

  25. Boston’s offense is problem, fixes may have to come from within

    Jan 25, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Rajon Rondo

    Boston is two games below .500 and it’s become evident this isn’t a problem isn’t gong away easily. Boston’s offense is 21st in the NBA scoring just one point per possession (100 per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata, well below the league average of 102.7). Thing is, that’s slightly better than the 98.7 the Celtics averaged…
