  1. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    brook lopez joe johnson kg

    NEW YORK – If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…

  2. The Extra Pass: Our awards at the quarter pole, plus Monday recaps

    Dec 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. DeMarcus Cousins won’t shake J.J. Redick’s hand, Redick appears confused (VIDEO)

    Nov 30, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins doesn’t want his teammates shaking hands with their opponents, believing that they will be better served in competition by loathing the other team instead of liking them, even by showing the smallest display of sportsmanship. Personally, I’m completely down with this philosophy. In an age where plenty of players have known each other…

  6. Blake Griffin had his elbow drained Sunday night

    Nov 27, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    Last season, Blake Griffin had to get his elbow drained, it was an issue that bothered him into the postseason. This season, less than 20 games into it, he has had to have the same thing, it happened Sunday after the Clippers beat the Bulls, reports Broderick Turner at the Los Angeles Times. “It’s still…

  7. Breaking down the Derrick Williams for Mbah a Moute trade: It’s as win-win as it gets

    Nov 26, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    The first rule for a GM in “winning” a trade is to make the other GM think he’s winning it. Even if you think you’re fleecing him. The swap sending Derrick Williams to Sacramento and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to Minnesota — which has become official — would have been an easy sell for both…

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  9. Ben McLemore, Wesley Johnson had big dunks Sunday night (VIDEO)

    Nov 25, 2013, 8:42 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers victory over the Kings Sunday night saw a couple big dunks we thought we would show you. First (above), Wesley Johnson gets the steal and is on the breakaway, so he puts on a little high-flying show with his dunk. Not to be outdone, Ben McLemore of the Kings had a dunk of…

  10. The Extra Pass: You may not believe this, but a D’Antoni team is winning with defense, plus game recaps

    Nov 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Six games ago, a frustrated Mike D’Antoni decided to shake up the rotation of his struggling 3-5 Lakers: Chris Kaman was out of the starting lineup, Jordan Hill was in; Nick Young became a sixth man and Wesley Johnson became the starting three; and with Steve Nash out Jodie Meeks became Steve…

  11. Kings’ Travis Outlaw fined $15,000 for clothesline on J.J. Redick

    Nov 24, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Travis outlaw

    I think Travis Outlaw gets off light here, this could have been a suspension in my book — hitting an airborne player with no play on the ball. But the league in its wisdom has reviewed the above play from the Clippers win Saturday night over the Kings and decided Outlaw should get a $15,000…

  12. DeMarcus Cousins doesn’t let teammates shake hands with Chris Paul (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins, as we all know, has a short temper. The Clippers, as we all know, aren’t above trying to get under a player’s skin. Put the two together, and you get some fireworks. After the Clippers squeaked out a win at home over the Kings, Cousins wasn’t afraid to show his displeasure with the result.…

  13. The Extra Pass: Busting myths surrounding Blake Griffin, and Thursday’s recaps

    Nov 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    In his first season playing in the league, Blake Griffin crushed any and all expectations. Now, just a few years later, he can’t seem to get out from under the weight of them. Without diving in too deep as to why that is, it’s probably fair to say that Griffin isn’t treated as even-handedly as…

  14. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  15. Report: Kings “aggressively” looking to trade veterans to accelerate rebuild

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    While most teams are feeling out deals and moving patiently with their big trade chips to see how the market shakes out — see the Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets as examples 1A and 1B — the new regime in Sacramento is feeling a little more impatient. They have veterans available and they are looking…

  16. 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…

  17. Tuesday Night NBA Grades: We fail the entire Atlantic Division

    Nov 20, 2013, 2:03 AM EDT

    New York Knicks

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while you were turning in your neighbor who stole monkeys and grew marijuana…  The entire Atlantic Division. With the losses Tuesday of the New York Knicks and the Boston Celtics, Atlantic Division teams have now lost 14 games in a row. As…

  18. Rumor: Kings interested in possible Derrick Williams trade

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:06 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    This is not something likely go down in the near future if it goes down at all, so just put this in your “things that could happen after Christmas or close to the deadline” file. We’ve told you before that the Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to trade Derrick Williams. Flip Saunders and the rest of…

  19. 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…

  20. Sacramento and Denmark to duel for Guinness indoor sound record tonight

    Nov 15, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    nba_u_kings_fans_576

    It’s not every day that an NBA basketball game becomes the site of Guinness World Record testing, and as you might have heard Sacramento Kings fans are wasting no time putting their grassroots organizations to work by attempting to break the indoor sound record of 106.6 dBA previously set by the fans of the Bucks…

  21. Warriors’ Toney Douglas has stress reaction in tibia, out two weeks minimum

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas

    While Golden State has looked good this season — 5-3 so far after a beat down of Detroit Tuesday — their bench has been not been the source of strength it was last season (they miss Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry so far). Now the bench just got a little weaker. Backup point guard Toney…

  22. Kings’ coach Malone calls out DeMarcus Cousins’ post defense

    Nov 7, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    The evolution of DeMarcus Cousins and Sacramento Kings leader is still ongoing. It’s the same old situation with him — video tape cleared him of a flagrant foul call and led to a suspension for Atlanta’s Dennis Schroeder for hitting Cousins in the groin; but he was having a bad game before and lost his…

  23. Hawks rookie Dennis Schroder suspended one game for punch to the groin of DeMarcus Cousins (VIDEO)

    Nov 7, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Dennis Schroder, Rudy Gay, Amir Johnson

    Hawks rookie Dennis Schroder has been suspended one game for “striking DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings in the groin,” the league announced on Thursday. The suspension is warranted, of course, but the most incredible part of the play was the fact that the referees didn’t feel the need to whistle Schroder for the foul.…

  24. DeMarcus Cousins benched at end of game, is ticked about “low blow” from Dennis Schroder

    Nov 6, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    It has long been the book on DeMarcus Cousins — you can get under his skin, cause him to lose focus and rather than being a dominant force he becomes a detriment to his team. Exactly how it went down Tuesday night is up to interpretation but one basic fact is not — new coach…

  25. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…
