    Brooklyn Nets' Williams drives against Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while figuring out what’s in and what’s out for 2013… Nets 110, Thunder 93: Well, P.J. Carlesimo has his signature win and for a night the Nets looked like the team from the first weeks of the season. Oh, they’re…

  2. Three Stars of the night: Getting your team wins against elite

    Jan 3, 2013, 2:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    There were so many people who could have made three stars of the night tonight we could have done 10 stars of the night. But, for the sake of my sanity (such as it is) we are keeping it at three. So how do you separate the top three? It’s not just numbers, but who…

  3. Steve Nash says Sixers Jrue Holiday should be an All-Star

    Jan 2, 2013, 5:22 PM EDT

    Steve Nash, Jrue Holiday

    Is Jrue Holiday an All-Star player? Holiday wants to be and after he dropped 26 points and 10 assists on the Lakers Tuesday night Steve Nash told the Los Angeles Times he thinks Holiday should be. (Insert your own joke about playing like an All-Star against Steve Nash’s defense here.) “Obviously they’re a different team…

  4. Kobe Bryant on Lakers: “We’re old as s***”

    Jan 2, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    BKN-BLAZERS-LAKERS

    It was as if the Ghost or Losses Past came to visit the Lakers Tuesday night — Philadelphia was more athletic, more aggressive, got big nights from young stars Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner (combined 48 points) and the Lakers looked a step slow. The result was a 103-99 Lakers loss that looked like so…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Lots of ‘Melo, not much else for Knicks

    Jan 2, 2013, 8:03 AM EDT

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while breaking your New Year’s resolutions already….

  6. Three Stars of the Night: Justified Jumpers

    Jan 2, 2013, 3:18 AM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    Play enough basketball and chances are you’ll run into a player who likes to justify his relentless jump shooting with a catchy phrase like, “you miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take” or “there’s a reason it’s called feeling it instead of thinking it” or maybe “I was open.” These people, of course,…

  7. Top 10 NBA dunks of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Jan 1, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Jared Sullinger

    WIth 2012 officially in the books, it’s time to look back on the top 10 dunks of the past year. And just as we all expected, Byron Mullens makes the list and kicks things off at number 10. Yeah, I don’t know either. But his flying jam down the lane after getting his own rebound…

  8. Top 10 NBA bloopers of 2012 (VIDEO)

    Dec 31, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    As we count down to the new year, let’s relive some of the lighter NBA moments of 2012 that we were fortunate enough to experience. At 10, we have Lamar Odom saying he’s with the Lakers in his first season with the Clippers. Wishful thinking, my friend. At 9, we have Omer Asik tipping the…

  9. NBA issues flopping warnings to Royal Ivey, Gustavo Ayon and Tony Parker

    Dec 30, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    Tony Parker? Flop? Well, I never! The NBA has officially warned Parker, Royal Ivey and Gustavo Ayon today for violating the anti-flopping policy established this season. While this is solely a warning for all three players, if they’re accused of violating the policy again, they will be subject to a $5,000 dollar fine. Parker’s flop…

  10. Three Stars of the Night: An Odd Scoring Battle

    Dec 30, 2012, 2:36 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez, Kyrie Irving

    With 22 teams in action, you’d expect the usual suspects to be the big scorers of the night. Guys like LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and James Harden. The guys battling Kobe Bryant for the scoring title. Those guys. Nope! Saturday was a little bit wild and crazy, and as a result we had Luis Scola…

  11. Jarrett Jack throws Dorell Wright’s shoe into the crowd (VIDEO)

    Dec 29, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jrue Holiday

    One of the nice things about Dwyane Wade‘s integrity coming into question this week was that we all got to happily remember the time Wade threw Mike Bibby’s shoe out of bounds. It was pure comedy gold. From Wade’s subtle toss not to arouse suspicion, to Bibby’s “come on bro” expression afterward, to Wade’s taunting backpedal…it’s just…

  13. No changes atop latest All-Star voting, but Lin and Bosh could sneak in

    Dec 27, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    NBA fans around the globe love Kobe Bryant. Stunning, I know. The latest update on the NBA All-Star voting is out and there are no changes among the starters for either conference — but it’s starting to get close for a few guys. What is different is that Kobe moved past LeBron James as the…

  15. Three Stars of the Night: Digging the long ball

    Dec 27, 2012, 1:07 AM EDT

    James Harden

    How important is the long ball to the modern NBA offense? If the season ended today, four teams would place in the all-time top-40 for best team 3-point percentage – the Spurs, Knicks, Thunder and Heat. The best offensive teams seem to manufacture plenty of looks from behind the arc, and in that spirit, we’re…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nowitzki is back and the Spurs could not care less

    Dec 24, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Elton Brand

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while starting you Christmas shopping finally…. Spurs 129, Mavericks 91: Dirk Nowitizki is back and… yikes. San Antonio just dominated that game, hitting 20-of-30 three pointers, driving into the lane, basically doing whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. Danny Green led…

  17. Sixers Doug Collins owes a lot of people Big Macs

    Dec 22, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    Doug Collins

    Fans love the food give-a-ways. “We want ta-cos” chants and people yelling for pizza are the norm. In Philadelphia, the giveaway is Big Macs — if the Sixers win and score 100 points everyone gets a free Big Mac coupon. Which brings us to the video above. Philly has 99 points and is going to…

  18. No real change: Andrew Bynum can increase activity but no return timetable

    Dec 21, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s another non-news update for Andrew Bynum. You think we all would be used to that by now, but Bynum himself had said a new MRI and meeting with a specialist afterwards on Thursday would give some direction to what was next. That update is Bynum can start to increase his activity level, however there…

  19. Jrue Holiday returns, says he will play Friday vs. Atlanta

    Dec 21, 2012, 12:11 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday stretches past Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett in Game 6

    Jrue Holiday — who has been the focal point of the Philadelphia offense for most of the season — has missed the last four games with a sprained foot. That he’s not totally sure how he got. Nonetheless the result has been four 76ers losses. The good new is he and Evan Turner told media…

    Dec 19, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    Lakers Bryant reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the 76ers during their NBA game in Philadelphia

    While Steve Nash and Pau Gasol were out, Kobe Bryant has carried the Lakers. He is leading the league with 29.5 points per game, scoring more points per game than he has since before Pau Gasol arrived as a Laker. Back when Kobe had to carry Kwame Brown and Smush Parker (remember they both started).…

  23. Jrue Holiday likely out, what Sixers really need is free throws

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:37 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday

    After taking some shots at shootaround Tuesday morning, Jrue Holiday told Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com that his injured foot hurt more than it did on Monday morning. That was the morning after he worked out before the Sixers lost to the Lakers. Nothing is official, but draw your own conclusions on him playing Tuesday night…

  24. Video: Watch Kobe rack up points in Philly in “Phantom” slo-mo

    Dec 17, 2012, 8:49 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Among the cool things they do at the NBA’s official YouTube site is to put together “Phantom” videos of certain nights or plays — slow motion shots with music. Seeing what Kobe does in slow motion can be amazing. Kids at home, you watch his footwork, that’s what you should mimic. The rest of us…
