  1. 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…

  2. Warriors’ reserves embarrasses themselves, so Mark Jackson embarrasses them

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson

    With his team up 23 points and fewer than four minutes remaining against the Jazz on Monday, Warriors coach Mark Jackson pulled his top players in favor of Ognjen Kuzmic, Marreese Speights, Nemanja Nedovic, Kent Bazemore and Draymond Green (who was replaced by Dewayne Dedmon a few seconds later). Promptly, those five reserves ceded a…

  3. Memphis’ Tony Allen suspended one game for kick to Chris Paul’s face

    Nov 19, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    Tony Allen said as much and I believe him — I don’t think he intentionally tried to kick Chris Paul in the face. I think he got badly burned leapt to cut off a pass that wasn’t coming, realized he was beat and tried to kick the ball to stop the play or foul Paul.…

  4. UPDATE: Stephen Curry diagnosed with concussion, out Wednesday for Warriors

    Nov 19, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    UPDATE 4:50 PM: This really isn’t a surprise if you saw the play — Stephen Curry has been diagnosed with what the team called a “mild concussion” and he will not play Wednesday. I’m not a fan of the word “mild” when it comes to brain injuries (I have concerns about how the “warrior mentality”…

  5. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  6. Mark Jackson: Klay Thompson is a top-five shooting guard

    Nov 18, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    Warriors coach Mark Jackson has never been shy about praising his players, once calling Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson the best shooting backcourt of all time. It’s also becoming increasingly popular to claim high rankings among shooting guards. Just by chance, that’s the weakest position in the NBA right now, so marginal players at the…

  7. Stephen Curry finds Klay Thompson with a behind-the-back pass in transition (VIDEO)

    Nov 17, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Isaiah Thomas

    This was one of those highlights that appeared to be flashier than necessary on the surface, until you take a closer look at the defender’s position. Stephen Curry found Klay Thompson with a smooth behind-the-back pass in transition during the Warriors’ win over the Jazz on Saturday, and for the play to be successful, he…

  8. 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…

  9. Globetrotter sets Guinness-approved record for world’s longest shot (VIDEO)

    Nov 15, 2013, 3:16 PM EDT

    Globetrotters

    Yes, we’ve shown trick shots before where guys have thrown the ball down hundreds of feet and set a distance record, but they are aided by gravity. What about hitting a long shot while at ground level? Well, here you go. That is Corey “Thunder” Law of the Harlem Globetrotters, making a shot from 109 feet,…

  10. The Extra Pass: Rockets foul up three and it works out…barely

    Nov 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    James Harden

    Game after game, Houston Rockets head coach Kevin McHale has had to sit back and watch teams use intentional fouls to their advantage. Against the New York Knicks on Thursday night, he turned the tables. After dealing with the “Hack-A-Howard” once again, the Rockets were lucky enough to hold on to a three-point lead with…

  11. NBA shows off sleeved Christmas Day uniforms in “Jingle Hoops” ad

    Nov 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    nba christmas day sleeved jerseys

    I know it’s too early for Christmas ads already (I’m one of those guys who doesn’t want to see this stuff until Thanksgiving) but this ad from Adidas showing off the “BIG Logo” Holiday Collection uniforms — which have sleeves and oversized logos on the front, pictures leaked last week — was good enough to bring…

  12. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  16. Spurs coach Popovich believes Warriors are ‘for real’

    Nov 10, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Gregg Popovich

    When San Antonio made their run to the Finals last year, they swept the depleted Lakers in the first round of the playoffs, and did the same to a very good Grizzlies team in the Western Conference Finals. The only team to give the Spurs any modicum of postseason trouble besides the eventual champion Heat…

  17. Stephen Curry out vs. Spurs Friday

    Nov 8, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    UPDATE 6:10 p.m. ET: Curry is out, reports Sam Amick of USA Today. 1:17 p.m. ET: Stephen Curry is officially day-to-day with a bone bruise in his ankle — and considering this is their star player with a long history of ankle issues (including multiple surgeries), you can expect the Warriors will be cautious here.…

  18. Stephen Curry with between-the-legs assist, Klay Thompson rains threes (VIDEO)

    Nov 7, 2013, 10:12 AM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    The Golden State Warriors are just pure entertainment some nights. Wednesday they dropped 106 on the Minnesota Timberwolves in a win that moved them to 4-1 on the season with the fifth best offense in the league. Curry made maybe THE highlight play of the night with this between the legs assist on the break.…

  19. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  20. Stephen Curry day-to-day with injured ankle

    Nov 6, 2013, 11:34 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    This appears to be pretty minor, he may not miss any games, but with Stephen Curry’s history of ankle injuries, you have to do a double take. Curry left the game in the third quarter with what was first described as a left foot bone bruise, but after the game the team announced he is…

  21. Study finds growing up in wealthier neighborhoods increases chances of making NBA

    Nov 5, 2013, 1:46 PM EDT

    AP Money Found

    The narrative is a strong one and something linked to the NBA today through guys like Derrick Rose — he grew up in a poor area of Chicago where basketball was his escape from the troubles around him. The game eventually provided him an escape from the neighborhood. LeBron James has a similar tale, a…

  22. Iguodala with ridiculous behind-the-back pass to Lee (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2013, 11:40 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    At points the Warriors just seemed to be toying with Philadelphia, playing their own blacktop game with plenty of street flair. Like long-distance alley-oops. Or, behind the back passes, like this Andre Iguodala to David Lee dish for the easy two. Iguodala had 32 points in his Philly homecoming. That went pretty well.

  23. Stephen Curry finds Andre Iguodala from half court for the alley-oop slam (VIDEO)

    Nov 4, 2013, 8:31 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    The Sixers are a nice story and all, sitting at 3-0 in the standings entering Monday night’s game against the Warriors. But no one expects it to continue, and Golden State seems intent on ending that brief winning streak, and doing so in spectacular fashion. As the Warriors got out to an early double digit…

  24. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Rockets, T-Wolves and Sixers on top

    Nov 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    The first few weeks of the Power Rankings see crazy fluctuations — teams that aren’t really that good start off hot, teams that are good start cold, so teams bounce up and down the rankings like they are on a bungee cord the first few weeks. Eventually things find their level. But this week was…

  25. Lob City is not dead: CP3, Griffin connect on back-to-back-to-back alley oops (VIDEO)

    Nov 1, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Clippers

    The reports of Lob City’s death have been greatly exagerated. Golden State lost to the Clippers Thursday night in a wildly entertaining game because of 24 turnovers (11 by Stephen Curry) and with all the changes in Los Angeles one thing remians the same — turn the ball over and they will get out in…
