    Houston Rockets' Beverley smiles after being called for a foul while playing Oklahoma City Thunder in their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff in Oklahoma

    Patrick Beverley gained some national attention when his aggressive play resulted in an injury to the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook in the first round of last year’s playoffs. There was nothing wrong with Beverley’s play, but it branded him as an agitator of sorts. He’s since lived up to that label, being one of the more…

  5. PBT Extra: Two man MVP race will go down to wire

    Mar 5, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder vs Miami Heat

    It’s a two man race for the MVP this season and the two best basketball players walking the face of the earth are basically even heading into the final quarter of the season. Watching Kevin Durant and LeBron James battle this out the rest of the way is going to be fun. We start off…

    Mar 5, 2014, 3:35 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Jim Tucker did it in 17 minutes in 1955. That was the last person to record a triple-double faster than Russell Westbrook did on Tuesday night — 13 points, 10 rebounds and 14 assists in less than 21 minutes. Kevin Durant dropped 42 points on the sad 76ers as well, but Westbrook’s achievement stood out.…

  7. Tuesday night NBA grades: Westbrook with a triple-double in 21 minutes

    Mar 5, 2014, 3:09 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jimmy Fallon, Idina Menzel (or Adele Dazeem if you prefer) and The Roots sing “Let It Go”… Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder. Tell me again how this team is better off without him? Westbrook had a triple double — 13 points, 10 rebounds…

  8. Dominique Wilkins is not impressed with LeBron’s 61-point performance

    Mar 4, 2014, 8:02 PM EDT

    Reebok Pump 20th Anniversary

    Dominique Wilkins was an elite NBA scorer who played 15 seasons and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006. As someone who played the game and was able to take it over at times, his opinion holds a certain amount of weight — and Wilkins wasn’t all that impressed with the 61 points…

  9. PBT Podcast: Talking LeBron’s 61, the race for MVP, plus tanking discussion

    Mar 4, 2014, 8:46 AM EDT

    Heat vs. Bobcats

    LeBron James shook up the NBA on Monday night, dropping 61 on the Bobcats. It’s a reminder of what LeBron has often said: If he wanted to lead the league in scoring, he could. It was also a little like Kevin Durant‘s run of a dozen 30+ point games in that Dwyane Wade was out…

  10. LeBron James’ 61-point game re-ignites MVP race with Kevin Durant

    Mar 4, 2014, 12:02 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    LeBron James could barely muster the strength to lift his head. He walked upcourt with his eyes to the ground, looked up to wave a dribbling Mario Chalmers ahead, and then dropped his eyes back to the court. The Miami Heat called timeout, and LeBron removed his facemask while dragging himself toward the bench. Spent…

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

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    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…

  12. Report: Caron Butler to sign with Thunder, not Heat

    Feb 28, 2014, 11:04 AM EDT

    Caron Butler, Nate Wolters, Markieff Morris

    Oklahoma City, looking for depth and a good spot up shooter to round out their roster for a playoff run, may have found one in veteran swingman Caron Butler. Despite early reports Butler was going to sign in Miami and backup Dwyane Wade (which means a lot of starts considering his knee maintenance plan), Butler…

  13. The Extra Pass: Is the second tier in West ready to challenge Thunder, Spurs?

    Feb 28, 2014, 8:51 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    We know Oklahoma City is a contender — despite their little three-game blip as they re-adjust to Russell Westbrook in the lineup, they are still 21-7 when Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook both play this season, they have a top-10 offense and defense when you look at points per possession. The same is true of…

  14. Report: Thunder join Heat as frontrunners to sign Caron Butler

    Feb 27, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Bucks Butler Basketball

    When word leaked out that Caron Butler and the Milwaukee Bucks were working on a buyout, it was almost instantaneous with reports he would land in Miami. There’s some logic to that — Butler played in Miami and was very popular in the locker room (Dwyane Wade is a fan) and in the community, plus…

  15. Kyrie Irving drops Thabo Sefalosha with crossover (VIDEO)

    Feb 27, 2014, 11:12 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Houston Rockets

    That is a sick crossover. Early on in what ended up being an interesting Cavaliers win over the Thunder, Kyrie Irving reminded us he has got some wicked moves. Thabo Sefalosha is a good on ball defender and Irving dropped him with a crossover. Just dropped him. Irving went on to score 31 and had…

  16. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    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…

  17. Thunder’s Kendrick Perkins out six weeks after surgery to repair groin injury

    Feb 25, 2014, 11:48 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Oklahoma City coach Scott Brooks will not be able to lean on Kendrick Perkins for the next six weeks — something that will be welcomed by a lot of Thunder fans. At least until they see the team is 0-3 without him this season and the defense suffers. Perkins will be out up to six…

  18. Sunday night NBA grades: Jason Collins takes the court, Jamal Crawford owns his

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:19 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while getting sucked into the “Reality Bites” power rankings…  Jason Collins, Brooklyn Nets. He was brought in to Brooklyn because he has a skill set they need — he can defend the post, he can rebound, and he sets a mean pick (Collins said after…

  19. Kevin Durant with the spin, drive and finger roll finish vs. Clippers (VIDEO)

    Feb 23, 2014, 6:36 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Kevin Durant turned in a spectacular performance against the Clippers on Sunday, finishing with 42 points and 10 assists in a game his Thunder lost. This was one of KD’s better highlights of the afternoon, a spin move just past mid-court, followed by a drive to the basket and a finger roll finish through the…

  20. LeBron turns in MVP performance in Heat’s blowout win over Thunder

    Feb 20, 2014, 11:26 PM EDT

    LeBron

    Throughout the first half of this season, Kevin Durant has widely been discussed as the player most deserving of receiving the league’s Most Valuable Player award. While Durant has been largely spectacular, those championing his cause may have neglected to consider one simple fact: LeBron James hasn’t exactly gotten worse, and in fact, may still…

    Feb 20, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder – Game Two

    In just a few short hours, the NBA trade deadline will pass. If history is any indicator, we’ll see somewhere in the range of eight trades go through. Some will be big, and some will be small…and none will have as big of an impact on the title picture as the return of Russell Westbrook will.…

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:48 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    Welcome back Russell Westbrook, as a present we got you the two-time defending NBA champions to deal with. You can thank us later.

  25. Kevin Durant extremely tired of LeBron James comparisons

    Feb 16, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Kevin Durant and LeBron James have pulled away from the field, setting up what could be a thrilling head-to-head finish down the stretch for Most Valuable Player. Durant is having the better season so far. There’s little question about that. With Russell Westbrook out, Durant has put the Thunder on his back, raising his game…
