  1. Three Stars of the Night: Go-Go Goran and a Game-Winner

    Jan 25, 2013, 3:48 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    We had a pretty good slate of games on Thursday night, didn’t we? The Knicks grinded out a combined 14-for-44 showing from Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith for a tough win against the Celtics, the Raptors had a little late game magic of their own against Orlando, and in the nightcap, the Suns stayed undefeated…

  2. ‘Melo vs. Garnett sideshow is dull, Knicks’ hard-fought win is not

    Jan 24, 2013, 11:56 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett played nice. In fact, in the third quarter Garnett went to the floor trying to complete an alley-oop and it was Anthony who was there to lend a hand and help him back up. There were no fireworks, no ejections, nothing. They may not be going out for a beer…

  3. Stephen Curry heads list of NBA All-Star Game snubs

    Jan 24, 2013, 9:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry, sorry. It sucks. Every year there are a couple of guys right on the bubble, guys you can argue should have made the NBA All-Star Game as reserves voted in by the coaches, but didn’t make the cut. (If you have a problem with the starters, blame yourself — the fans vote those…

  4. 2013 NBA All-Star reserves announced

    Jan 24, 2013, 7:39 PM EDT

    East All-Star Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat (L)  battles West All-Star Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder

    The 2013 NBA All-Star reserves were announced Thursday, and while there will always be a few players who fans will argue should have made it, it’s tough to disagree with the ones the coaches selected. In the Western Conference, Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden were the guards selected, and big men Tim Duncan,…

  5. Kendrick Perkins has some interesting comments about Russell Westbrook

    Jan 24, 2013, 6:31 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder – Game Two

    Kendrick Perkins is an interesting sort of guy. He’s constantly scowling on the court, racking up technical fouls and getting into it with opponents. But off the court? He’s a friendly dude. He even smiles every now and then. So when Perkins talks about his teammate Russell Westbrook being two entirely different people on and…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kyrie Irving outduels Rajon Rondo

    Jan 23, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Avery Bradley

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while waiting five days for that goat cheese fire to butn itself out… Thunder 109, Clippers 98: This was a four-point game at the half, then Kevin Durant happened. The Clippers were without their star in Chris Paul — bruised knee — but…

  7. Watch Kyrie Irving drop 40 on the Celtics (VIDEO)

    Jan 23, 2013, 8:06 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    I know he missed a chunk of the season, but watch this game and tell me Kyrie Irving doesn’t deserve to be an All-Star. Irving was the best player on the court when the Cavaliers took on the Celtics and he won Cleveland that game with a variety of shots — driving layups, pull-up midrange…

  8. Three Stars of the Night: A couple All-Stars and an Ilyasova

    Jan 23, 2013, 2:57 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving, Avery Bradley

    Sometimes you watch a game and a certain player just jumps off the screen at you. These were the three who did that for me on Tuesday. And yes, I know that Kyrie Irving has not yet been named an All-Star, but I think that changes Thursday. He’s going to get Doc Rivers vote. Third…

  9. The Extra Pass: Assessing Trade Situations (Pacific Division)

    Jan 22, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nuggets knock of Thunder in OT

    Jan 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while taking out your frustrations in the “rage room”… Nuggets 121, Thunder 118 (OT): This was the kind of game that fans find entertaining and makes a coach cringe. Entertaining because it was close most of the way, was played at a fast…

  11. Doc Rivers: We need to find right player combos “or we’re going to get some guys out of here”

    Jan 21, 2013, 1:55 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Boston Celtics

    Doc Rivers is frustrated. And he should be — his Celtics were just plain bad in a loss to the Pistons on Sunday. They shot just 39.8 percent and were handled pretty easily by the Pistons. After the game, Rivers let those frustrations spill over when talking to the media, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of…

  12. Brandon Jennings doesn’t like his All-Star chances

    Jan 19, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Ben Uzoh

    PHOENIX — Brandon Jennings, and to a lesser extent, Monta Ellis, are on the bubble in terms of potential players who could be named to the All-Star team as a reserve. We discussed this on the podcast this week — once you get past Kyrie Irving, there really aren’t any locks to make the team…

  13. Marco Belinelli hits the game-winner in overtime to send Bulls past Celtics (VIDEO)

    Jan 18, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Gibson reacts as Belinelli celebrates his game-winning shot with Robinson in their NBA basketball game against Boston Celtics in Boston

    This was an amazing shot by Marco Belinelli, one that gave the Bulls a hard-fought 100-99 overtime victory over the Celtics in Boston on Friday. But it shouldn’t have come to this for the Celtics. Boston led this game by three with 20 seconds left in regulation. After a free throw from Kirk Hinrich cut…

  14. 2013 NBA All-Star starters announced

    Jan 17, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    kobe all-star 2013

    The 2013 NBA All-Star starters were announced just after 7 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, and in the both the Eastern and Western conferences, there were no surprises. In the east, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Garnett were the frontcourt players voted in by the fans, and Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo were selected to…

  15. Gary Payton talks Lillard, D-Will and guarding Jordan

    Jan 17, 2013, 4:02 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    We look at today’s NBA as almost a new golden age of point guards — Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, Tony Parker, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, and the list goes on and on. It’s a very different era from when Gary Payton was at the peak of his career. Back then Payton could body up on…

  16. Deron Williams doesn’t think he deserves to be All-Star

    Jan 15, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Just a couple years ago Deron Williams was an All-Star automatic — if the fans didn’t vote him in, the coaches would. And should have. In 2010 he averaged 18.7 points and 10.5 assists per game with a PER of 20.6. He got mentioned next to Chris Paul in the “best point guard in the…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Miami’s little slump getting serious

    Jan 15, 2013, 7:55 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz guard Hayward watches as Miami Heat forward James reacts to a call during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while getting sucked into the “Good Will Hunting” oral history… Thunder 102, Suns 90: Kevin Durant is really, really good. Not sure if you knew that. The Suns were given a first-hand reminder when KD dropped 41 on the Suns in their home…

  18. Three Stars of the Night: Volatile Stars Edition

    Jan 15, 2013, 2:01 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    On a night where the Atlanta Hawks scored 58 points, the Memphis Grizzlies shot 30 percent from the field, and the Orlando Magic lost by 29 points…to the Washington Wizards…we could probably use some offensive outbursts to distract us, right? Well, I’ll tell you what — if it’s outbursts you want, our Three Stars are plenty capable…

  19. Rajon Rondo says he was joking with ref, didn’t deserve suspension

    Jan 8, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo didn’t take the court for the Celtics Monday night — not that they needed him, Boston got a nice win in New York anyway — as he sat out a one-game suspension for bumping referee Rodney Mott in a game over the weekend then impeding the investigation of the incident. In vintage Rondo…

  20. Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett go at it, receive double technicals (VIDEO)

    Jan 7, 2013, 11:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks

    The Celtics didn’t need Rajon Rondo to beat the Knicks at MSG on Thursday; they only needed to get inside Carmelo Anthony‘s head. Kevin Garnett did so masterfully, and Anthony shot a miserable 6-of-26 from the field which helped the Celtics come away with a critical road victory against one of the top teams in…

  21. Tommy Heinsohn with the epic rant on Rondo’s suspension (VIDEO)

    Jan 7, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT

    Google ChromeScreenSnapz021

    Tommy Heinsohn is the color analyst on the Celtics broadcasts, but before that he was a Hall of Fame player and coach in Boston for parts of the last six decades. As you might imagine, he bleeds green at this point, and has almost no filter when discussing issues related to his beloved Celtics. The…

  22. Danny Ferry gets $15,000 fine for giving video of Rondo to official

    Jan 7, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Danny Ferry, Hawks President of Basketball Operations and GM

    Hawks GM Danny Ferry is being fined $15,000 for being a snitch. Rajon Rondo bumped referee Rodney Mott on Sunday night and he will pay the price for that by sitting out Monday night. But after the game when it happened Ferry approached the referees and gave them the video of the play. The tattletale.…

  23. Rajon Rondo suspended Monday night for bumping referee

    Jan 7, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    Over the weekend, Rajon Rondo played out a scene from last year’s playoffs — he bumped a referee in Atlanta. The league doesn’t take kindly to this. Combine it with what the league office called “failure to cooperate with a league investigation” and you get a one-game suspension for Rondo, Stu Jackson announced. Rondo will…

  24. Report: Celtics positioning themselves for multi-player trade

    Jan 6, 2013, 8:38 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    The Celtics waived Jarvis Varnado and rookie Kris Joseph on Sunday, which in itself is unremarkable news. Varnado was expected to be gone before his contract became guaranteed on Jan. 10, but the team parting ways with Joseph was a bit of a surprise, considering the positive view it was believed to have of the…

  25. J.R. Smith believes an All-Star spot is within reach

    Jan 5, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    J.R. Smith has been lauded for his play in New York this season, coming off the bench to provide a solid scoring punch at 16.6 points per game, while giving the team an active defensive presence on the perimeter. Smith’s name, along with that of the Clippers’ Jamal Crawford, has been widely mentioned when discussing…
