  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston’s defense has serious issues

    Dec 31, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while in a massive food fight including flour and eggs…. Clippers 107, Jazz 96: The Clippers win streak is at 17 and if you are having an early season MVP discussion and not including Chris Paul in the mix, you…

  2. Three Stars of the Night: The Butler did it

    Dec 31, 2012, 2:14 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson, Caron Butler

    Four games, three stars on a Sunday night. As always there are some honorable mention guys left out — Tony Parker with his 21, Monta Ellis with 30 points and 9 assists, and Al Jefferson with 30 against the Clippers front line almost made the cut. But instead, it’s an all-perimeter guys three stars tonight.…

  3. Could the Wizards land DeMarcus Cousins?

    Dec 30, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Over the course of the next few months, we’re going to hear an awful lot of trade speculation regarding DeMarcus Cousins. Different trade scenarios will surface, and all the while, the Kings will likely hold the public position that they “have no interest in trading Cousins” right up until they actually do it. The latest…

  4. Report: Maloofs reluctant to trade Cousins; Celtics among teams interested

    Dec 29, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Ever since the Kings organization suspended DeMarcus Cousins — for fighting with Keith Smart, the coach hired because it was thought he had a good relationship with the young big man — other teams have started poking around to see if the Kings are willing to trade Cousins. Among the teams very interested are the…

  5. Video: Kings’ Johnson hits game-winning three to beat Knicks

    Dec 29, 2012, 8:08 AM EDT

    James Johnson, Aaron Brooks

    Now that is drama. The Knicks almost completed an amazing comeback win — down 27 in the second quarter they came all the way back to lead by two points with less than 20 seconds to play. One basket probably seals the win but DeMarcus Cousins reads the Knicks play — Jason Kidd and Tyson Chandler…

  6. Keith Smart “leaning toward” playing Cousins Friday

    Dec 28, 2012, 11:05 AM EDT

    Demarcus Cousins

    Sacramento is hosting the New York Knicks on Friday night. The question is will we see a Tyson Chandler vs. DeMarcus Cousins battle in the paint. Chandler will be there ready to go. But will Kings coach Keith Smart put his best player on the court? He’s leaning toward playing Cousins, Smart reportedly said on…

  7. Baseline to Baseline recaps: James Harden leads dramatic Boxing Day finishes

    Dec 27, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, James Harden

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of all the games yesterday in NBA action. Or, what you missed while wondering exactly what you’re going to do with the Salt-N-Pepa salt and pepper shakers you got for Christmas…. Rockets 87, Timberwolves 84: James Harden is making quite the All-Star case, and making the Rockets look more and more…

  8. DeMarcus Cousins not with Kings in Portland tonight

    Dec 26, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    The team’s suspension was ended but that apparently doesn’t mean DeMarcus Cousins is back with the Kings. Cousins practiced with the team on Monday but is not with the team now in Portland for a Wednesday night game, tweets Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee. (Tyreke Evans is out as well as he recovers from…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: Clippers in top spot, which is close to Mayans being right

    Dec 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s not the end of the world in a classic way, or even in a “Michael Stipe feels fine” kind of way, but the Clippers being on top of the PBT power rankings are as close to the end of the world as we are getting this week. 1. Clippers (21-6, LW 2). Winners of…

  10. DeMarcus Cousins reinstated by Kings following suspension

    Dec 24, 2012, 4:02 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    DeMarcus Cousins has been reinstated by the Sacramento Kings following a suspension that ultimately lasted just a single game, the team announced. Cousins was back with the Kings on Monday and practiced with the team. The suspension, originally scheduled to last “indefinitely,” was due to Cousins getting into it with Kings head coach Keith Smart…

  11. Sacramento hasn’t wanted to trade Cousins before. Will that change?

    Dec 24, 2012, 10:36 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, J.J. Hickson

    Talent wins in the NBA, so when they have someone with tremendous talent they were willing to put up with a lot more off the court. Think young Charles Barkley, who was a royal pain. Or, there’s a reason that a prolific scorer like Gilbert Arenas could do things like take a dump in a…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nowitzki is back and the Spurs could not care less

    Dec 24, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Elton Brand

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while starting you Christmas shopping finally…. Spurs 129, Mavericks 91: Dirk Nowitizki is back and… yikes. San Antonio just dominated that game, hitting 20-of-30 three pointers, driving into the lane, basically doing whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. Danny Green led…

  13. Three Stars of the Night: Buckets in Bunches

    Dec 24, 2012, 1:23 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v New York Knicks

    We had a pretty streaky Sunday around the league. Chris Paul and the Clippers extended their winning streak to 13 games, the longest seen this year in the NBA. Dirk Nowitzki returned for the Mavs, but the Spurs made it six straight at home in a laugher. The Knicks squeaked out a win over the…

  14. Report: DeMarcus Cousins changes agents

    Dec 23, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Sacramento Kings

    DeMarcus Cousins has made a mess for himself. He’s lashed out at opponents, coaches, announcers — pretty much everyone. He’s been fined, he’s been suspended. The Kings are tired of apologies. Cousins is sick of losing. And around and around we go. No matter whose side you’re on, it’s safe to say that Cousins has…

  15. DeMarcus Cousins suspended indefinitely by Kings

    Dec 22, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    The Sacramento Kings have announced that they’ve suspended DeMarcus Cousins “indefinitely for unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team.” The suspension comes less than 24 hours after Cousins got into it with Kings head coach Keith Smart during Friday night’s game, and was benched in the second half as a result. This is just…

  16. Eric Bledsoe with the incredible chase-down block against the Kings (VIDEO)

    Dec 22, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    BLEDSOE_ERIC

    Eric Bledsoe is an insane athletic talent, but buried on a very deep Clippers roster, has only gotten on the court for about 18 minutes per game this season. When he does get out there, however, good things happen more than they do not. Bledsoe got loose for this chase-down block against the Kings’ Thomas…

  17. DeMarcus Cousins benched for second half for Kings after argument with coach

    Dec 22, 2012, 2:11 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    We told you there was plenty of friction in the Kings locker room… DeMarcus Cousins was left in the Kings locker room for the second half of the team’s loss to the Clippers Friday following a halftime argument with coach Keith Smart. Smart wouldn’t get into specifics after the game, saying Cousins was benched for,…

  18. Trimester Awards: A Naughty and Nice List

    Dec 21, 2012, 6:19 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Can you believe it? The NBA season is somehow a third of the way finished, which means it’s probably time to take stock of what we’ve seen so far this year. We’ll give out some awards — ’tis the season and all that — but we’ll also dish out some coal. After all, what are…

  19. Thursday And-1 Links: Steve Nash went through a full practice with Lakers

    Dec 20, 2012, 4:28 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    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. • Steve Nash went through a five-on-five, full contact practice with the Lakers Thursday.…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: That Kevin Durant guy is pretty good

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Thunder forward Durant reacts after a three point shot against the Atlanta Hawks in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while being more than willing to do your part to fight breast cancer…. Knicks 100, Nets 86: Battle of New York? Not really. The Knick are an elite team that got Carmelo Anthony back and he dropped 31 (that makes it…

  21. Kings players want Isaiah Thomas to start; don’t know what they’re running on offense

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:17 PM EDT

    Isaiah DeMarcus

    If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

  22. Tyreke Evans could keep missing games with sore knee

    Dec 18, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Tobias Harris

    Because the Sacramento Kings needed something else to go wrong… The Kings, loser of five in a row — including one to the Suns Monday night where they fell apart in the second half — could be without Tyreke Evans for an extended period of time, reports the Sacramento Bee. Evans has missed seven of…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Serge Ibaka is to be feared as Thunder beat Spurs

    Dec 18, 2012, 3:05 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder's Ibaka plays against San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while thinking “if you’re going to play Santa make sure you fit down the chimney”…. Rockets 109, Knicks 96: Jeremy Lin was back in New York and he doesn’t just play well at Madison Square Garden when Carmelo Anthony is out,…

  24. NBA Power Rankings: Right now, Clippers are second best in West

    Dec 17, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Blake Griffin and Chris Paul run off the bench to celebrate a basket against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    What we see in December is not always a great predictor of what we see in the playoffs, but the Clippers look very good lately. Better than their more talked about roommate in Los Angeles. 1. Thunder (19-4, Last week ranked No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row. I still think…

  25. Report: Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans among those who could be traded this season

    Dec 16, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Neither Brandon Jennings nor Tyreke Evans received or agreed to lucrative contract extensions this past offseason. The thinking on both is that their respective teams need a little more time to decide on where they stand with these players in terms of making a long-term commitment, and since the Bucks and the Kings have the…
