  1. Stephen Curry admits his ankle is troublesome after games

    Jan 31, 2012, 8:20 AM EDT

    nba-lockout-curry

    Stephen Curry’s ankle was a lingering problem last season, so in the summer he had surgery to tighten the ligaments. But already he has missed eight games this season dealing with the same ankle. He’s been back he last four games now, so how’s it doing? Not as well as one could hope. He’s able…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Jan 30, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kris Humphries

    The top three teams remain the same, just trading places, because they are the three best teams in the league right now. But all three also have long road trips coming up, which should test them. 1. Thunder (16-3, last week ranked No. 3). They are “only” fifth in point-per-possession differential in the league, but…

  3. Kevin Durant: “Who cares who’s better, Westbrook or me?”

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant honestly doesn’t get why people think he and Russell Westbrook can’t coexist. They have had some friction, but so has every team that won a title. You think it was a bowl of cherries to practice with Michael Jordan? Durant genuinely could not care less who scores the most points, who gets the…

  4. Blake Griffin heads 2012 rookie deal extension class

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin slam dunks against Memphis Grizzlies Hamed Haddadi of Iran and Dante Cunningham during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook got theirs. Kevin Love got a deal, as did Danilo Gallinari. Eric Gordon and Brook Lopez did not. And nobody seriously considered giving Michael Beasley one. It’s the first extension to the rookie contract — the first chance for NBA players to make serious, serious money. But as we saw…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s Bizzaro World night in NBA

    Jan 19, 2012, 8:05 AM EDT

    Andray Blatche Wizards

    What you missed while watching the Australian Open and thinking “I need to go to vacation there”…. Wizards 105, Thunder 102: Yes, you are reading that right. The worst team in the NBA (1-12 entering the game) just beat a title contender (12-2 before this started). It gets weirder — Oklahoma City shot 48.1 percent…

  6. Tuesday And-1 links: Portland’s sell out streak in jeopardy

    Jan 17, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Welcome to our 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). Portland’s 166 game sellout streak is in danger of coming to an end. Which speaks more to the condensed schedule and the economy than it does…

  7. Monday And-1 links: Schedule wearing everyone down

    Jan 16, 2012, 11:11 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Boston Celtics

    Welcome to our 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). Is fatigue setting in for the Chicago Bulls? Maybe a little, but it is the same for every team. Yao Ming is getting into politics in…

  8. Magic, Warriors GMs meet, Dwight Howard doesn’t care

    Jan 13, 2012, 10:59 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    What did Magic General Manager Otis Smith and Warriors GM Larry Riley talk about when they had lunch together Thursday in Oakland? Probably how much they hate random Internet speculation. Nonetheless, that’s what we’ve got. The two did meet for lunch, reports Matt Stenmetz of CSNBayArea.com. And as we know from last week the Warriors…

  9. Curry gets a second opinion on ankle, nothing changes

    Jan 11, 2012, 3:17 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Nicola Vucevic, Lou Williams, Jrue Holiday

    So, it’s a sprain. Stephen Curry has rolled his ankle three times this young season and is out a while to rest it. But since he had surgery on this same ankle, he decided to go back and have the surgeon — Dr. Bob Anderson — take a look at it. Basically he saw what…

  10. Monday And-1 links: Who is Lakers second scoring option?

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). Who is the Lakers second scoring option after Kobe? Well, Kobe Bryant says it’s Andrew Bynum. Kwame Brown thinks he deserves some of the credit…

  11. Report: Warriors “aggressive” suitor to rent Dwight Howard

    Jan 5, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Dwight Howard gave the Magic a list of places where he would sign an extension (New Jersey, Dallas, the Los Angeles Lakers). The Magic said they would listen to offers from teams willing to “rent” Howard for this season without the guarantee he would opt in for another year at least (as Chris Paul did)…

  12. Stephen Curry clearly shaken by latest sprained ankle

    Jan 5, 2012, 4:06 PM EDT

    nba-lockout-curry

    For those of us watching at home, when Stephen Curry sprained his ankle on Wednesday night it looked like the two other times he did it in the last three weeks. Or all the times he did it last season when the issue lingered. But it didn’t feel that way to Curry. He was far…

  13. Thursdays And-1 links, where Lakers fans are just wrong

    Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning 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). In this poll, 56 percent of Lakers fans would rather have Andrew Bynum as their starting center over Dwight Howard. Those fans are fools. I’m…

  14. Stephen Curry rolls right ankle, leaves game. Again.

    Jan 5, 2012, 8:32 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Nicola Vucevic, Lou Williams, Jrue Holiday

    Off-season surgery to tighten the ligaments. Rest. New shoes. Just about every tape job imaginable. Stephen Curry has tried everything. And yet, he rolled his right ankle again in the third quarter Wednesday night and had to leave the game, reports Matt Steinmentz at CSNBayArea.com. This is the third time in the last three weeks.…

  15. Reports: Warriors close to signing Nate Robinson

    Jan 3, 2012, 7:21 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 2:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Because they needed another guard off the bench… wait, no they didn’t, but the Golden State Warriors may be adding one anyway. The Warriors are close to signing Nate Robinson, according to Marcus Thompson of the Contra Costa Times. He said the signing may happen Wednesday and Robinson could be in uniform by the weekend.…

  16. Mark Jackson wants Warriors to “speed up the process”

    Jan 3, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    Mark Jackson has a calm, yet demanding presence as head coach of the Golden State Warriors that seems like it could work long-term if the team continues to add pieces and improve from a raw talent standpoint. But as a former player who wants to make a more immediate impact, Jackson’s patience will be tested.…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Blazers climb, Heat on top of mountain

    Jan 2, 2012, 1:35 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, LeBron James

    Lots of big moves up and down as the rankings start to shake themselves out a little. In college football they should hold off doing polls through those early weeks because said polls impact the postseason, but as the NBA has a playoff to determine who is best let’s dive in. 1. Heat (5-0, last…

  18. Monta Ellis out Saturday for Warriors, Curry questionable

    Dec 30, 2011, 5:33 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Golden State’s scoring power could be very depleted when Philadelphia comes to town Saturday. Monta Ellis has been given permission to miss the game to attend the funeral of his grandmother who recently passed away in Mississippi, reports Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com. “Bottom line is he’s a family member going through something right now,” (coach…

  19. Jeremy Lin is eager to prove himself as more than a piece of NBA trivia

    Dec 29, 2011, 6:52 PM EDT

    large_Lin

    A little known fact about Jeremy Lin, who was recently claimed off waivers by the New York Knicks: he actually has a pretty solid all-around game. He’s a big guard, racks up steals at an incredible rate, and is — at the very least — a solid straight-line driver. A better-known fact about Jeremy Lin:…

  20. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  21. Stephen Curry tweaked ankle. Again. Will sit out Knicks game.

    Dec 27, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    stephen curry

    UPDATE 1:42 PM: Stephen Curry is going to sit out the Warriors game against the Knicks Wednesday, his agent told the USA Today. This would be the smart thing to do, he’s rolled the same surgically repaired ankle twice in the past week. The good news out of this is that X-rays showed no serious…

  22. Baseline to baseline recaps: Dallas has some issues

    Dec 27, 2011, 7:48 AM EDT

    Chris Andersen, Vince Carter,

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  23. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks fall, Heat race into top spot

    Dec 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks

    Only one third of the teams in the NBA have played a game, but it was enough to move some teams around and give us a new No. 1. 1. Heat (1-0, last week ranked No. 2). They had 100 possessions in their opening game, nine more than they averaged last season. If they do…

  24. Chris Paul is really good, which makes Clippers better than Warriors

    Dec 26, 2011, 6:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    For three-plus quarters, the Clippers did not look like the Golden Child, the team anointed to take over Los Angles, lob city, Western Conference contenders. Their half court offensive execution was unimpressive and Chauncey Billups suddenly had the shot selection of a rookie. Then Chris Paul took over the game. In the final 6:07 of…

  25. Previewing NBA’s Christmas Day tip-off

    Dec 23, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Derrick Rose

    Time to unwrap the present of an NBA season — and just like the gifts under the tree there may be some assembly required. Condensed training camps and just two preseason games is going to mean some sloppy openers on Christmas day. But they are games, which are vastly superior to antitrust lawsuits. So let’s…
