The Rockets’ starting point guard going to get a second opinion, but if he is out for the playoffs that is not good news for a team on the cusp of contention. It means more Jeremy Lin, but he’s not the defender Beverley is.

When Kevin Durant is putting on the kind of show that will win him the MVP award, as he was doing Tuesday night, the Thunder are very hard to beat. Dallas did just that though. They did it behind a vintage night from Dirk Nowitzki (well, except he continued to struggle from three going 2-of-8),…

The Thunder are playing Russell Westbrook less than ever. They’re even sitting him in some back-to-backs. It’s all designed to maximize his availability for the playoffs. Oklahoma City is a legitimate championship contender. There’s no sense risking Westbrook’s health until it matters most. But given how serious every hit to the knee Westbrook absorbs seems,…

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

An MRI showed that Russell Westbrook came away from his latest injury scare unscathed.
Mar 22, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT
A poor outing in the NCAA Tournament and his being benched at the end of the game by Mike Krzyzewski alerted America to what NBA scouts already knew — Jabari Parker doesn’t play defense. In the latest edition of the PBT Podcast myself and Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio cover bring in Ed Isaacson…

Russell Westbrook left Friday’s game with a knee injury, and it did not look good. However, he left the arena later without a limp or brace and said he will not miss time.

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching your bracket go up in flames on the first day… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. Credit the Milwaukee Bucks, they would not roll over, they fought and made Golden State work for it. Stephen Curry was the guy that was not going to…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to explain how a python ate your family pet… J.J. Hickson/Kenneth Faried, Denver Nuggets. Let’s be clear — Denver snapped the Los Angeles Clippers 11-game win streak because the Clippers were tired and off. The back-to-back with the second game in Denver trap…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the King of the Hill/True Detective mashup… Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors. Early in the third quarter Houston took an 18 point lead over Golden State and seemed to be in complete control. Then the shots from Warriors backcourt started to…

The Thunder are just a game back of the Spurs for the league’s best record, an achievement that would guarantee home court advantage throughout the playoffs. But they’ll willingly be hurting that effort by resting Russell Westbrook as a precautionary measure in certain back-to-back sets.

This is what makes Inside the NBA on TNT great. You can be sure some star almost fell asleep on the set of a Sunday morning football show this year, but they got him some coffee and kept it off the air. Not Inside the NBA. They show Charles Barkley nodding off and the guys…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while applying for maybe the best journalism job out there…. Mike Dunleavy, Chicago Bulls. Don’t make Mike Dunleavy angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry. Dunleavy had no points in the first half before Chandler Parsons caught Dunleavy just above the eye with an…
