  1. Report: Bobcats in buyout talks with Ben Gordon

    Feb 21, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Charlotte Bobcats

    This should not come as a surprise. The Charlotte Bobcats are in talks to buyout the $13.2 million contract of Ben Gordon, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Yes, you read that right, Gordon is making north of $13 million this season — more than Stephen Curry or Tony Parker or a host of other…

  2. Curry floater, O’Neal block key dramatic Golden State win (VIDEOS)

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Houston and Golden State put on a show — a sloppy, poor shooting show, but one filled with drama nonetheless. That included Stephen Curry hitting a floater over Dwight Howard and off the glass to send the game to overtime. Then in overtime, with 30 seconds to go and Golden State up one, Jermaine O’Neal…

  3. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  4. Lakers trade Steve Blake to Warriors

    Feb 19, 2014, 9:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    With the Lakers season having spun so far out of control that all has essentially become lost in Los Angeles, there’s no reason for them to hold onto anything remotely resembling an asset that the team isn’t committed to keeping beyond this season. Steve Blake (when healthy) has been more than serviceable at the guard…

  5. The Extra Pass: Clearing out my All-Star notebook, including fixing the dunk contest

    Feb 18, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    2014 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Four days in New Orleans left me about 20 pounds heavier (at least it feels that way, time to mix in a salad) and with a notebook full of thoughts and tidbits that didn’t find their way into other posts. So, here is a notebook dump. • Paul George said after the All-Star Game Frank…

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

  7. Report: Nets, Cavaliers talking Jarrett Jack for Jason Terry swap

    Feb 17, 2014, 5:23 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jameer Nelson

    Jarrett Jack came off the bench last season for a Golden State team that made a nice playoff run going small (remember that three guard line-up with Jack, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson?). Brooklyn has had found it’s idenity and had some success going small this season, and they are now looking to add pieces…

  8. Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony shoot East to win in highest scoring NBA All-Star Game ever

    Feb 17, 2014, 12:18 AM EDT

    2014 NBA All-Star Game

    NEW ORLEANS — The NBA All-Star Game is never exactly a defensive showcase, it’s an exhibition. But this year’s version was an analytic lover’s dream: Three pointers and dunks. A lot of them. In the highest-scoring NBA All-Star Game ever, the East beat the West 163-155. This was the kind of showcase of athleticism the…

  9. Watch NBA players miss a ton of halfcourt shots…except for Stephen Curry (VIDEO)

    Feb 16, 2014, 11:01 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Golden State Warriors

    All-Star Saturday night had its ups and downs. The three-point contest started slow but ended with some nice drama when Bradley Beal pushed eventual winner Marco Belinelli to a shoot-off. This is the only consistently enjoyable event, and it didn’t fail once again. As for the dunk contest? It was…interesting? The team format was a…

  10. Curry, Lillard, George bring mid-major flavor to All-Star Game

    Feb 16, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    NEW ORLEANS – Fresno State. Davidson. Weber State. Paul George. Stephen Curry. Damian Lillard. This year’s NBA All-Star Game has a distinct mid-major feel. While most of the top players in high school head to the big-name basketball factory colleges, that is not the only route to NBA stardom. With more games televised and the rise…

    adidas NBA All-Star Jersey EAST WEST Clipped

    New Orleans. The Big Easy. The NBA’s biggest party is coming to America’s premiere party city (sorry Vegas) and it is going to be something special. I have a personal goal of gaining 20 pounds this weekend. I am in New Orleans and stopped eating gumbo long enough to tape the latest NBC ProBasketballTalk Podcast…

  12. LeBron James drains game-winning three over Iguodala (VIDEO)

    Feb 13, 2014, 2:33 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Golden State Warriors

    It looked seconds before like Stephen Curry was going to be the hero — he drove the lane and got an and-1 lay-up that had the Golden State Warriors up by 2 with time running down. But it’s still LeBron James‘ world. I love that Eric Spoelstra didn’t call a timeout — if you have…

  13. Report: Warriors looking to make trade to bolster bench

    Feb 12, 2014, 11:47 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made it clear: The organization’s goal for this season was a top four seed in the West and home court in the first round of the playoffs. At 31-21, the Warriors are the six seed currently but are closer to Memphis in the nine seed out of the playoffs (2.5…

  14. Toronto Raptors reportedly wary of paying Kyle Lowry in $40 million range

    Feb 10, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    Kyle Lowry’s value has never been higher. It might never get higher. With Lowry heading into free agency this summer, this could be the exact right time to trade him. The Raptors could get substantial long-term assets in return, positioning themselves to truly contend down the road. However, a Lowry trade would almost certainly undermine…

  15. Stephen Curry puts Warriors head coach Mark Jackson on the #DunkCam (VIDEO)

    Feb 7, 2014, 9:32 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    Do a Twitter search for the hashtag DunkCam, and all kinds of nonsense will pop up. It’s essentially a thing where people orchestrate elaborate slam dunks on unsuspecting people using portable hoops, trash cans, or other props that can result in someone running up on them and putting them on the proverbial poster. This reached…

  16. The Extra Pass: Handicapping the All-Star Saturday events

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Denver Nuggets

    A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…

  17. Thursday night NBA grades: Stephen Curry looks ready for Three Point Shooting Contest

    Feb 7, 2014, 3:34 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while reading about how strange the 1904 Olympic marathon in St. Louis was…. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. After a decent shooting first quarter (but one the Warriors as a team would like to forget) Curry got hot — 10-of-14 shooting, 4-of-5 from three, 28…

  18. Bulls start fast but can’t stop Stephen Curry, hot shooting Warriors comeback

    Feb 7, 2014, 2:42 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    This was a meeting of two of the four best defenses in the NBA (yes, Golden State is one of the top four defenses in the NBA, it’s why they are a playoff threat). The difference between the teams is Golden State has a player in Stephen Curry who is an elite scorer and can…

  19. 2014 Three-Point Contest field features five All-Stars

    Feb 6, 2014, 9:41 PM EDT

    Foot Locker Three-Point Contest

    Kyrie Irving will defend his title at the 2014 Three-Point Contest in New Orleans, and to win it for the second straight year he’ll have to beat a field that, at least on paper, appears to be pretty stacked. In addition to Irving, the east will be represented by Arron Afflalo, Bradley Beal, and Joe Johnson.…

  20. All-Stars Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan highlight field for 2014 Skills Challenge

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:11 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It seems redundant at this point to list Damian Lillard as part of the lineup for any of All-Star weekends many events, considering he’s participating in all of them. But he, along with DeMar DeRozan are the two 2014 All-Stars who will be taking part in the Skills Challenge event on All-Star Saturday night. The…

    Portland Trail Blazers fans are not fair weathered. They have stuck with the franchise through some dark times. Now they are being rewarded — with LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard leading the way, Portland fans are getting to witness some of the best, most entertaining basketball Rip City has seen in more than a decade.…

    Charlotte Bobcats v Golden State Warriors

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking this guy is tougher than you would be in his shoes… Charlotte Bobcats defense. Here’s a little secret — Golden State’s offense isn’t as good as you think it is. In their last five games the Warriors are shooting 39.5 percent overall and…

  23. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

  24. John Wall gets the chasedown block on Stephen Curry (VIDEO)

    Jan 29, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    John Wall

    An awful turnover on the game’s first possession was one John Wall was able to turn into one of the night’s better highlights. After the Wizards won the opening tip, Wall lost the ball after a questionable pass from Bradley Beal. He was credited with the turnover (unfairly, probably) but he didn’t give up on…

  25. The Extra Pass: Should Indiana be worried about its offense? And Tuesday’s recaps.

    Jan 29, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Indiana is the best team in the NBA right now — they have the best record in the league (by percentage points over Oklahoma City) and they have the best point differential in the league. The Pacers are legitimate title contenders. They have done all that in spite of their offense. The…
