  1. Mavericks want to make Dirk Nowitzki their second-best player

    Apr 21, 2013, 11:32 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki, Ryan Anderson

    For the first time since the 1999-00 season, when Michael Finley did it, Dirk Nowitzki didn’t lead the Mavericks in win shares. As Nowitzki missed a large of the 2012-13 season due to injury, Vince Carter, Darren Collison and Shawn Marion passed him in the all-in-one stat. If the Mavericks have their way, Nowitzki won’t…

  2. Nuggets, Andre Miller use second half surge to defeat Warriors

    Apr 20, 2013, 10:44 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game One

    Game one proved to be the perfect example of why this series has a chance to be the best of the first round match ups. Both teams dueled down the stretch with some fantastic shot making, but it was Andre Miller’s lay up in the final seconds that lifted the Nuggets to a 97-95 win…

  4. Looking at the possible first round upsets in the NBA playoffs

    Apr 19, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

    Heat's Bosh and Bulls' Boozer await a rebound from a Miami free throw in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    There are some first round series in the NBA playoffs, like the one between the Heat and the Bucks, for example, that are nothing more than foregone conclusions. But there are others where the lower seed has a more than legitimate shot at beating a higher-seeded team winning and advancing, at least in theory. In…

  5. Who can knock off Miami? NBA playoff power rankings

    Apr 18, 2013, 8:49 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    If you want to hold the Larry O’Brien trophy — the one that goes to the NBA champions each June — you’re going to have to pry it out of Miami’s cold, dead hands. Good luck. They are the defending champs. They had the best regular season record in the NBA despite coasting to start…

  6. Stephen Curry breaks Ray Allen’s record for most threes in a season (VIDEO)

    Apr 18, 2013, 8:19 AM EST

    Stephen Curry, Jarrett Jack

    His ankles finally healthy, Stephen Curry has proven not only to be as good a pure shooter as there is in the game, but maybe one of the best ever. With the two threes above, Curry tied then broke Ray Allen‘s record for most three pointers in a season. Curry finished the season with 272…

  7. Stephen Curry on verge of breaking Ray Allen’s single-season 3-point record

    Apr 17, 2013, 1:35 PM EST

    Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry will likely break Ray Allen’s record for 3-pointers in a season (269) when the Warriors play the Trail Blazers tonight – Curry has 268, and he’s made at least two 3-pointers in 65 of his 77 games – but that’s not the most remarkable aspect of Curry’s outside shooting. Curry is shooting 3-pointers,…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: Give me your Point Guards

    Apr 16, 2013, 1:29 AM EST

    Stephen Curry

    I’m a sucker for point guards. The guys who can balance scoring and dishing; who can control the game’s flow like they do the ball in their hands. Tonight there were several worthy performances of making out list, including fantastic nights from Kevin Durant, Luis Scola, Gerald Henderson, and Greg Monroe. But, tonight, I’m going…

  10. NBA Power Rankings: Heat end rankings where they ended last season

    Apr 15, 2013, 7:43 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers

    For the final power rankings of the year my criteria are simple: Who do I think is most likely to win a seven game series between the teams right now. It is essentially a playoff rankings. 1. Heat (64-16, last week ranked No. 1). For a couple games this week the Heat rolled out their…

  13. Warriors’ Curry, Thompson set record for backcourt three pointers in season

    Apr 9, 2013, 1:41 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Golden State Warriors

    The Golden State Warriors average just shy of 20 three pointers a game (which is middle of the pack in the NBA). But they hit 40.1 percent of them, best in the NBA. That’s because almost 14 of those 20 are taking by Stephen Curry (shooting 45.2 percent from three) and Klay Thompson (41.2 percent).…

  14. NBA Power Rankings: Knicks climb up to No. 2

    Apr 8, 2013, 4:11 PM EST

    Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd

    Welcome to the penultimate PBT power rankings for the season. If you win 12 games in a row you can get the No. 2 spot, but if you asked me to pick who wins a seven game series between the Thunder and Knicks it would look different than this ranking. Same with the Spurs. But…

  16. Warriors use ‘elevator’ screens to perfection to free up their shooters (VIDEO)

    Apr 7, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis

    There are plenty of teams that use variations of a single play to get wide open looks for their best shooters. The Warriors use what’s called an ‘elevator,’ or ‘gator’ action to free up Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson for open looks from distance, and do so with both consistency and success. The video clip…

  19. The summer vacation where Stephen Curry remade his jumper

    Apr 3, 2013, 2:56 PM EST

    Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis

    Stephen Curry is the best pure shooter in the NBA today. We can debate the finer points of that if you want — Ray Allen still holds the crown for many — but Curry and his 45 percent from three and 44 percent shooting from 16 feet out to the arc is in the conversation.…

    Apr 2, 2013, 1:45 PM EST

    Hornets Trail Blazers Basketball

    At some point during the NBA award season, Damian Lillard is going to pick up the Rookie of the Year hardware. It is the biggest lock of the award season (even ahead of the inevitable LeBron MVP). The question with Lillard — who is older than most of his draft class after a four-year college…

  21. John Wall admits a number of point guards are better than him, still wants to get paid

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:15 AM EST

    John Wall

    It remains one of the interesting questions of the NBA off-season: How much do the Wizards offer John Wall in a contract extension? The Wizards are going to make an offer and they’ve suggested it’s substantial. I think something close to Stephen Curry’s four year, $44 million seems about right. Since getting back and healthy…

    Mar 26, 2013, 7:25 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    You’ve all heard the book on John Wall — go under the pick, play off him, he’s as quick as any guard in the league, amazing straight line speed, is a good playmaker… But he has no jump shot. Except, lately he has been knocking down his remade jumper. A lot of people noticed it…

  24. Stephen Curry breaks Steve Nash’s ankles, drains three (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 11:42 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    When Stephen Curry has it going there may not be a more entertaining player to watch in the NBA. And he had it going against the Lakers Monday — 25 points, 10 assists and spearheading the Warriors win over the Lakers. Maybe the most memorable play is this one, where a little move leaves Steve…

  25. Three Stars of the night: We believe edition

    Mar 26, 2013, 1:32 AM EST

    John Wall

    There are some players everyone believes in , and other players whose teammates believe in them. And then there are those players who completely believe in themselves – even when others might not. Third Star: Kobe Bryant (35 points, 8 rebounds) Arguably, no player believes in himself more than Kobe, who shot 11-for-27 against the…
