    New York Knicks forward Anthony reacts after being fouled by the Atlanta Hawks in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Midway through the third quarter of the Knicks’ win over the Sixers on Sunday, Carmelo Anthony apparently was done wrestling with Spencer Hawes. After the two were battling for position for most of the possession, and once the shot went up, Anthony smacked Hawes in the back of the head with his right hand, and…

  2. Monday And-1 links: Rip Hamilton has a heck of a birthday cake

    Rip Hamilton's birthday cake

    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 more than old critics like slamming Seth McFarlane. • Richard Hamilton may have had…

  3. PBT Extra: Amnesty That! Plus some LeBron and Sixers talk

    Feb 25, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    It’s Monday and that means I get to hang out with red-carpet ready Kay Adams and talk some NBA. Of course, we talk some Lakers and what they are doing right. But let’s say they make the playoffs, do you think they could beat the Spurs in seven games? No. Thunder? No. Clippers? Closer, but…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Hot hot Heat move back to top spot

    Feb 25, 2013, 4:33 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like the Miami Heat have started to get focused and in the West it is the Spurs, Thunder and everyone else. The rest of the league has less than two months to state their case that they can knock one of those big three off. 1. Heat (40-14, last week ranked No. 2).…

  5. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Thunder roll as Bulls need a Rose

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook controls the inbound pass in front of Chicago Bulls defenders Belinelli and Gibson during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while pointing out to friends the historical inaccuracies of “Argo”… Lakers 103, Mavericks 99: The Lakers are starting to find their identity as a team… of course, some night’s that identity is Kobe Bryant. He dropped 38 points, 14 in the fourth quarter,…

    Earlier this week Andrew Bynum said he would be practicing with the Sixers soon. Turns out, soon was Friday. Bynum took part in a full practice and scrimmage, something first reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer and and confirmed by coach Doug Collins to CSNPhilladelphia.com’s Dei Lynam. Bynum, who has missed the entire season with bone…

  7. Sixers’ summer “Plan A” still to re-sign Andrew Bynum

    Feb 22, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

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

    How much money would you give Andrew Bynum this summer? The bigger question is, how many years? Fortunately Sixers’ GM Toni DiLeo, and other GMs around the league, don’t have to answer that question until this summer. And they hope to have seen him play a little before that. Whatever the answers to those first…

  8. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  9. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: James Harden reminds Thunder he’s good

    Feb 21, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were calling 9-1-1 then asking police to bring you some cigarettes…. Lakers 113, Celtics 99: Dwight Howard played maybe his best game as a Laker and was a force on defense, Steve Nash was carving up the defense and making passes…

  10. Report: Bucks tell teams Brandon Jennings is off market

    Feb 20, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd, Brandon Jennings

    While he denies it, multiple reports suggest Brandon Jennings wants out of Milwaukee. His hiring of a new agent known for getting players to big markets adds fuel to that fire. But the latest reports suggest the Bucks want to hold on to Jennings and are willing to ship his backcourt mate Monta Ellis out…

  11. Andrew Bynum shows off… interesting hair style; says he’ll practice in 1-2 weeks

    To the right you see Andrew Bynum’s new hairstyle when he met with the media on Tuesday. Words fail me. Decide for yourself. As for the ever-fluctuating timetable for his return to the Sixers, well, he might start practicing with the team. Soon. Probably. From the twitter of John Finger of CSNPhilly.com. Bynum says he…

  12. Sixers not looking to make big trade as they wait for Bynum

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    The plan in Philadelphia before the season started was to put Andrew Bynum on the court with Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner and see what they’ve got. That’s still the plan. Eventually. Bynum’s still not back so the most basic questions the Sixers have remain unanswered. So don’t expect the Sixers to go making a…

  13. Philadelphia 76ers to sign guard Jeremy Pargo for rest of season

    Feb 18, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Jeremy Pargo

    The Philadelphia 76ers have struggled with injuries and they’ve struggled finding a useful backup point guard this season. Maalik Wayns had his shot…and shot 26 percent from the field with a PER of 2. Royal Ivey hasn’t been a whole lot better with a PER of 8.9. Although he wasn’t great on his 10-day contract…

    NBA All-Star Griffin of the Clippers dunks as teammate Durant and All-Star Noah of the Bulls look on during the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — You know it’s an All-Star Game and all the seriousness that entails when Dwight Howard is launching and hitting threes, Howard and Blake Griffin are pretending to do acrobatics between quarters and the understated Tim Duncan is wearing some bright green Adidas Crazy Fast shoes. “I think that’ll be the only time you…

  16. Raking up hardware already, Lillard wins All-Star Skills Competition

    Feb 16, 2013, 10:19 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Consider this the first of a bunch of award Damian Lillard could be racking up. The Portland Trailblazers celebrated rookie won the All-Star Saturday Taco Bells Skills Competition. He seemed to embody the old John Wooden mantra of “be quick, don’t hurry.” “I think the biggest thing for me is to try to be too…

  17. Kobe is frustrated, not sure teammates feel the same way

    Feb 15, 2013, 9:59 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant’s way of dealing with adversity is simply to work harder. Get up more shots, work on more moves, get better. If you are not up for a challenge improve until you are. The Lakers were not ready for the challenge of the Clippers Thursday night. For the Lakers (and their fans) it was…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at toys you can buy that would traumatize your child…. Celtics 71, Bulls 69: Man this game was ugly. You knew it was going to be low scoring — two defensive minded teams both missing the point guard that stirs their…

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76er Bynum walks past a teammate before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Toronto Raptors in Philadelphia

    If you were expecting to see Andrew Bynum on the court for Philadelphia in February, you may want to readjust your timetables. Bynum is running, cutting, moving laterally and taking shots from all over the floor he said. All good signs. Except he has had to slow those workouts because he said he felt pain…

  20. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    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…

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

    Feb 12, 2013, 1:26 AM EDT

    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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…
