  1. Ray Allen to wear nickname jersey straight out of “He Got Game”

    Dec 18, 2013, 10:13 AM EDT

    he got game denzel

    If you haven’t seen Spike Lee’s “He Got Game” well, now you have some homework for tonight. The movie has Denzel Washington and a young Ray Allen in the lead role of a movie where basketball is at the heart of the plot. This season the NBA is going to do “nickname games” where the…

  2. Google’s most searched NBA player in 2013? LeBron. Top trending team? Do you have to ask?

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Google search records are not the best way to test the popularity of something, but it is a pretty democratic way. Bottom line is you find out who people want to find out more about. As a fun little NBA treat, Google released Tuesday their most searched NBA players… and if you have to guess…

  3. The Extra Pass: The Clippers’ “Rosie” Screen; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Over the next few days in this space, we’ll break down a play that’s largely unique to one team. To kick off this signature series, we’ll start with the Los Angeles Clippers’ “Ring-Around-The-Rosie” screen. Innovation in the NBA is often about adding little wrinkles to something very simple. There are no “Wildcat” offenses that take…

  4. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

  5. Doc Rivers says rift between Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett ‘will be fixed’

    Dec 8, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    When Ray Allen chose to leave Boston as a free agent and join Eastern Conference rival Miami following the 2012 season, it didn’t sit well at all with two of the Celtics’ biggest stars. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were upset by Allen’s decision, even though he wasn’t guaranteed a thing in Boston and was…

  6. Kyle Korver breaks record for consecutive games making a three (VIDEO)

    Dec 6, 2013, 9:23 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Ray Allen couldn’t do it. Neither could Reggie Miller or Stephen Curry or any of the other three-point marksman you can name. Kyle Korver has now made a three in 90 consecutive games, breaking the record Dana Barros set in 1996. He did it midway through the first quarter from above the break on the…

  7. Kyle Korver will fire from arc Friday to set new NBA all-time three point streak

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Atlanta Hawks

    Dana Barros, a little point guard out of Massachusetts who got to play for the Celtics as part of a 14-year NBA career, and while there he set a record: Eighty-nine consecutive games with a made three. If Kyle Korver knocks down a three Friday night when the Hawks host the Cleveland Cavaliers Korver will…

  8. Report: Heat shopping Joel Anthony, seeking depth behind Wade

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    Dwyane Wade is going to be taking a lot of games off this season as the Heat try to rest his knees for the playoffs. It started in the second game of the season and it will continue as he has been out 5 of the Heat’s 19 games (he missed the Bulls game Thursday…

  9. Kevin Hart to write, star in movie with LeBron James

    Dec 5, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    The Dwyane Wade Fantasy Camp Draft Party

    Kevin Durant did it in a movie nobody really saw (Thunderstruck). Michael Jordan did it with cartoon characters (Space Jam). Shaquille O’Neal did it… poorly (Kazam). Now LeBron James is about to be the latest NBA superstar to head to the big screen and star in a movie. Well, we don’t know how big his…

  10. The Extra Pass: The Wild West, can Portland last, and Sunday’s Recaps

    Dec 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Let’s jump around the Western Conference with a few observations: Portland: 20 percent of the regular season is in the books, and the Trail Blazers hold the pole position in the Western Conference. It’s a great accomplishment and something absolutely no one expected, but the Blazers should come back down to earth soon enough. Wesley…

  11. Clippers Redick out 6-8 weeks with fractured hand, torn ligament in elbow

    Dec 1, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    J.J. Redick

    J.J. Redick has been a key part of the Clippers having the third best offense in the NBA this season — he gives them an efficient 15.8 points a game in kind of a “Ray Allen in Boston” role coming off screens and spotting up at the arc as a kick-out option. But the Clippers…

  12. Report: Mavericks to target Chris Bosh in free agency

    Nov 27, 2013, 6:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    This summer LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can all opt out in Miami and the smart money says they all will, looking to get longer deals. Odds also are very good LeBron doesn’t go anywhere — look at the teams going after him, you think he wants to go to the mess in…

  13. The Extra Pass: Gay, Wallace and D-Will on notice, plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    It’s early. Early, early, early. I don’t want to condemn anyone based on ten games, but it’s time to wonder what’s going on with Rudy Gay, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams. Rudy Gay – He’s been chucking, but his chucking has now reached historic levels. Through 11 games, Gay has shot under 40 percent from…

  14. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  15. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…

  16. Ray Allen says Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett haven’t spoken to him since he left Celtics for Heat

    Nov 10, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Ray Allen

    The players and coaches of the Celtics team that won a title in 2008 and contended for a few years afterward pretended as though there was a bond in place that was more special than it was anywhere else. But once the business side of things began to take precedent over the basketball side, things…

  17. James Harden officially day-to-day with bruised foot

    Nov 8, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    No, this is not an excuse for how flat-footed and slow his defense has been this season. However it appears James Harden is hurt — he is day-to-day with a bruised foot tweets Jonathan Feigen of the the Houston Chronicle. Those tend not to keep people out long if at all, and against the Lakers…

  18. Dwyane Wade helps Heat pull away for win over Clippers

    Nov 7, 2013, 10:16 PM EDT

    d wade

    LeBron James is in the rare situation of being widely recognized as the game’s best player, and few would argue his position in those rankings. But what makes the Miami Heat a championship level team is the star talent surrounding James, and that starts with a healthy Dwyane Wade. Wade is still able to impact…

  19. Red-hot Clippers put on a show at Rockets expense, win big

    Nov 5, 2013, 2:40 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford, Chris Paul

    LOS ANGELES — This happens a few games a season. It was a perfect storm of the already explosive Clippers offense really finding its flow in an up-tempo game, a Rockets defense that was just floundering, some foul trouble to the Rockets defensive anchor, and to top it all off Chris Paul had the Midas…

  20. Nets in control from start, hang on at end to finally beat LeBron and gain confidence

    Nov 1, 2013, 11:51 PM EDT

    Heat Nets Basketball

    There are no statement games on Día de los Muertos. I’m not sure there are statement games in early April either, but right now it’s far, far too early to talk about them. Teams change and evolve a lot over the course of a season. A lot. Plus regular season series are not reliable predictors…

  21. Sixers pull off stunning upset, open season with win over Heat

    Oct 30, 2013, 9:56 PM EDT

    Heat 76ers Basketball

    The Sixers were tabbed by most to be the worst team in the league this year, and no one expected it to be that close. The team’s own head coach said he only thought Philadelphia was fielding six NBA-caliber players, but that was enough at least for one night. Philadelphia caught the defending champion Heat…

  22. The Extra Pass Tuesday roundup: Doc Rivers talks Clippers defensive woes

    Oct 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Chris Paul

    LOS ANGELES — The long grind of the NBA season is about building habits, building sustainable ways to win that can carry a team through the playoffs. For the Clippers this season, that building focus is on defense (their offense is going to score plenty). Before his team’s opening night game Tuesday the Clippers’ Doc…

  23. What to expect from LeBron and the Heat?

    Oct 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    You’re busy, so I’ll save you some time: a championship.  They’ve won two straight, basically their entire squad is coming back, and their best guy is the most dynamic and exciting player since Michael Jordan.  The Heat have all the tools they need to make a run at a three-peat – but even with them…

  24. NBA GMs would take Kevin Durant over Kobe Bryant for last shot

    Oct 22, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s a great barstool debate: Who do you want taking the final shot with the game on the line? General Managers around the NBA say Kevin Durant. For many years that question was one Kobe Bryant owned in the annual NBA.com GM survey, but for the second straight GMs picked the scoring machine out of…

  25. Monday And-1 Links: Luke Walton wants another shot in NBA

    Oct 21, 2013, 8:59 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Luke Walton

    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. • Luke Walton spent most of last season on the Cleveland bench (he got…
