    Mar 10, 2014, 4:05 PM EST

    Mike Brown, Anthony Bennett

  2. Extra Pass: Are the Detroit Pistons putting a new twist on tanking or being lousy?

    Mar 10, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.

  4. Paul Pierce’s move to power forward adds twist to his career, Brooklyn Nets’ season

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:00 PM EST

    Amir Johnson; Mirza Teletovic; Alan Anderson

    BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

  5. James Harden, Evan Turner get into shoving match in Rockets’ blowout win over Pacers (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 11:00 AM EST

    WASHINGTON WIZARDS VS. HOUSTON ROCKETS

    Late in the third quarter Friday with the Rockets leading the Pacers by 23 points, James Harden and Evan Turner got into it a bit, and the players had to be separated after getting face-to-face and a little shoving ensued. This appeared to be Harden intentionally agitating things, as this play had been whistled dead…

  6. Sixers coach Brett Brown on whether we’ll see Nerlens Noel play this year: “It really is, ‘Who Knows?'”

    Mar 7, 2014, 10:34 PM EST

    Nerlens Noel

    Nerlens Noel was selected with the sixth overall pick in last summer’s draft, and the Sixers traded Jrue Holiday for him in order to jumpstart their rebuilding process. But we have yet to see Noel take the floor for Philadelphia this season, in much the same way that Andrew Bynum missed his entire year with…

  7. Is Carmelo Anthony’s smart play to opt in and play out contract with Knicks?

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EST

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

  8. Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown willing to accept ‘blemish’ of terrible record on his résumé

    Mar 7, 2014, 12:46 PM EST

    Brett Brown

    No matter how his NBA head-coaching career unfolds, Brett Brown will always have a first-season losing record on his résumé. His 76ers will finish somewhere between 15-67 and 36-46 – likely much closer to the former. The 76ers struggling was no surprise. In fact, they’ve probably exceeded expectations. So why did Brown put himself in…

  9. Sixers’ losing streak now 11 games away from setting new NBA record

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:14 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks  v Philadelphia 76ers

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a game it was Jan. 29 in Boston. Since then the Sixers have lost 15 in a row, by an average of 19.8 points a game (a couple 40+ point losses skew that number). Coach Brett Brown is not sure his team will win another game this season…

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

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EST

    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…

  11. Evan Turner playing point guard for Pacers

    Mar 3, 2014, 10:30 AM EST

    Evan Turner, Chris Johnson

    With starting point guard George Hill out injured the last two games, the Indiana Pacers have undertaken an interesting experiment: using Evan Turner at point guard. Turner, a wing by trade, played point guard at Ohio State and dabbled at the position in Philadelphia. In Indiana, he was expected to take Danny Granger’s minutes as…

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:12 AM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 28, 2014, 6:31 PM EST

    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…

  14. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out for season after surgery on tibia

    Feb 28, 2014, 5:54 PM EST

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    The Pelicans’ new look roster had potential — if all the new pieces could meld and Anthony Davis could start to blossom they would be a very interesting team the second half of the season. Injuries undid that dream — Ryan Anderson led a list of key Pelicans who have had to miss significant time…

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

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:27 AM EST

    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,…

  16. Extra Pass: Cleveland Cavaliers built playoff-caliber team, but that won’t mean enough

    Feb 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Luol Deng, Kevin Durant

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

    Feb 26, 2014, 5:27 PM EST

    Danny Granger

    Danny Granger is going to get his chance to play for a contender — and his next contract. Which it looks like he will do as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers.

    Feb 26, 2014, 4:41 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Indiana Pacers

    After a few weeks mid-season hiatus — which is what Chris Paul and LeBron James really want for the All-Star break — PBT Extra is back with the incomparable Kay Adams at the helm. Today she and I start off talking about what Evan Turner can mean to the Pacers — as long as he…

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    With the Miami Heat next up on the schedule, the New York Knicks are looking to bring in some guys who can defend on the perimeter. As opposed to what they have now which is essentially orange traffic cones to dribble around on your way to the lane. Enter Earl Clark (who we told you…

  21. Tuesday night NBA grades: DeMar DeRozan is the Raptors go to guy

    Feb 26, 2014, 2:32 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had watched the Winter Olympics in a snow fort…  DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He is the guy the Raptors go to in the fourth and what’s different than the Rudy Gay era is how he gets his points — it’s not isolations.…

  22. Report: If Granger bought out Spurs have interest, maybe not Heat

    Feb 25, 2014, 7:10 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We are still waiting to see if the Philadelphia 76ers and Danny Granger are going to be able to come to a buyout agreement. While talks are ongoing, a few teams are circling like vultures just in case Granger is going to be a free agent. The timeline is March 1 — if the Sixers…

  23. Report: Knicks close to deal with Earl Clark

    Feb 25, 2014, 5:12 PM EST

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    The New York Knicks are looking for defensive help. As they should be if you’ve watched any of their games recently. Which is why they are close to bringing in free agent Earl Clark. A deal is near, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The New York Knicks are finalizing an agreement with free-agent forward…

    Milwaukee Bucks  v Philadelphia 76ers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while mourning the loss of Harold Ramis (RIP)….. Philadelphia 76ers on the court. My. Lord. They. Are. Terrible.
