  1. Report: Lakers, Knicks Warriors among teams asking about Kyle Lowry trade

    Jan 3, 2014, 7:12 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Golden State Warriors

    Toronto has won 9 of its last 12 games — since the Rudy Gay trade they have been the third best team in the East. The question in Toronto has to be whether to throw out the tanking and lottery plan along with that 2013 calendar. This is a team that should win the Atlantic,…

  2. Report: Kings, Warriors interested in Andre Miller trade with Nuggets

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:44 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    You had to know not long after the recent bench outburst at his coach that got Andre Miller suspended from the Denver Nuggets for a couple games, teams would be reaching out trying to trade for him. Sacramento and Golden State, specifically, reports Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. The Warriors have been…

  3. The Extra Pass: A rookie report (plus Wednesday’s recaps)

    Jan 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Due to injuries and the lack of a transcendent talent, this year’s draft class has been pretty underwhelming as a whole. Still, that doesn’t mean there haven’t been a few pleasant surprises along the way. Now that we’ve had a little more time to evaluate, let’s check in on three of the most impressive rookies…

  4. Monday night NBA grades: Blake Griffin’s jumper looked good

    Jan 2, 2014, 1:44 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to find Stephen Colbert’s cameo in “Hobbit 2”…. Blake Griffin, Los Angeles Clippers. This is what Blake Griffin looks like when his midrange jumper falls. Griffin was 7-of-10 from the midrange and even nailed a three on his way to 31 points —…

  5. Mike Malone working to mold Isaiah Thomas into starting point guard

    Jan 1, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Utah at Sacramento

    Before Greivis Vasquez was moved in the Rudy Gay trade, Isaiah Thomas was an early top candidate for the Sixth Man of the Year award. He was exactly what you want in a sixth man — he came in and changed the tempo of the game, he was a fearless scorer who would attack, knock…

  6. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EST

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  7. Tim Duncan goes between legs for crossover, Amir Johnson drops (VIDEO)

    Dec 24, 2013, 11:59 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v San Antonio Spurs

    Tim Duncan, point god. Well, not quite. However he did get forced to bring the ball up against the Raptors Monday night and that led Amir Johnson to think “I can pick that guy’s pocket.” But never underestimate the power of Timmy. His fundamentals include some ball handling. Why did you even doubt that? Hat…

  8. Report: Attempts to revive Kyle Lowry to Knicks trade talk failed

    Dec 23, 2013, 7:09 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    Like Generalissimo Francisco Franco, trade talks between the Knicks and Raptors are still dead. There were at points talks between New York and Toronto about swapping point guards — Kyle Lowry would come to Manhattan and Raymond Felton would head north to Canada. But the talks stalled over what was needed to make that palatable…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  10. The Extra Pass: Three things you think about Danny Granger that are wrong

    Dec 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Houston Rockets  v Indiana Pacers

    In his second game back Sunday, Danny Granger looked good. After battling knee issues that kept him out almost all of last season and most of this one, Granger returned the Pacers lineup this weekend. Sunday against the Celtics he looked like the guy the Pacers are hoping he will be off the bench —…

  11. Isaiah Thomas: ‘I want to be the best little guy to ever play’

    Dec 22, 2013, 8:00 PM EST

    Isaiah Thomas, Jameer Nelson

    The Kings made the Rudy Gay trade to, well, get Rudy Gay. But that wasn’t the only benefit of the the deal. The trade, which shipped out starting point guard Greivis Vasquez, gave Isaiah Thomas a bigger role, and that’s a positive development for Sacramento. Thomas is averaging 18.8 points, 5.7 assists and 1.4 steals…

  12. Wednesday night NBA grades: Vintage Dwyane Wade sighting

    Dec 19, 2013, 2:23 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    Our quick look around a busy night in the NBA, or what you missed while trying to buy some beer and pay for it with a live alligator…  Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat. The last time Wade scored 30 points or more in a game it was Game 4 of the NBA Finals, so it’s been…

  13. Bobcats’ Kemba Walker drains overtime game winner to beat Raptors (VIDEO)

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:40 AM EST

    Kemba Walker

    Kemba Walker just owned the Toronto Raptors. This was his game — 29 points on 18 shots, he could get into the paint or went 5-of-7 from three. Plus, he sank the game winner. The Bobcats had 1 second to get a shot off, the score tied 102-102 at the end of overtime. Walker comes…

  14. Greivis Vasquez and Amir Johnson ready to become high-end pick-and-roll combination

    Dec 18, 2013, 2:21 PM EST

    Amir Johnson, Kyle Lowry, Greivis Vasquez

    Greivis Vasquez ranks No. 18 in points per play he finishes as the pick-and-roll ball handler, and Amir Johnson ranks No. 31 as the pick-and-roll screener, according to MySynergySports. That should make the newly formed Raptors duo pretty formidable, and everyone involved sounds excited about the possibilities. Via Eric Koreen of the National Post: “When…

  15. Terrence Ross excited for ‘biggest opportunity of my career’

    Dec 18, 2013, 10:45 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    Technically, the Raptors got Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes for Rudy Gay. But Toronto also got a new spirit. Without the shoot-first, do-little-else Gay, the Raptors have gone 3-1. They’re just clicking a little better. They might be playing with a little more passion, too. Terrence Ross certainly is. Landry Fields…

  16. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  17. J.R. Smith not eligible to be traded until Jan. 15

    Dec 16, 2013, 12:23 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Five

    The NBA’s trading season unofficially opened on Sunday, because Dec. 15 marked the first day that the majority of players who signed new contracts over the summer are eligible to be included in trades to other teams. But a select few players aren’t yet eligible. The collective bargaining agreement has various restrictions in place for…

  18. Report: Knicks ownership may reconsider trade for Lowry if team continues to struggle

    Dec 14, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    The Raptors are rebuilding, and so not surprisingly, just about every player on the roster not tied to the team’s long-term plans is available in trade. Kyle Lowry is a skilled point guard that could help many teams, and with an expiring deal for just $6.1 million, he would come at a palatable price. But…

  19. Trade rumor update: Nets may be Kyle Lowry frontrunners

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:58 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Charlotte Bobcats

    When last we left off with “Days of our Kyle Lowry,” the Raptors were shopping their favorite point guard around hard and had talked with New York. Then Knicks owner James Dolan pulled the plug on it because… well, he’s James Dolan. Now the Nets may be the frontrunners but the Knicks want back in…

  20. Patrick Patterson learned he was traded on way to see “Hunger Games.” Still went to movie.

    Dec 13, 2013, 3:15 PM EST

    Patrick Patterson

    For the Toronto Raptors, Rudy Gay never got out of the hotel while Aaron Gray was doing a pregame workout when they found out they had been traded to Sacramento. But nothing was as good as Patrick Patterson’s story that he had been sent back the other way. Patterson was taking his mom to see…

  21. Report: Knicks’ owner shoots down trade to get team Kyle Lowry

    Dec 13, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    There is a whole lot of spin going on around the idea of a trade of Kyle Lowry from the Raptors to the Knicks, but a couple of themes seem to be consistent: 1) The Raptors want a lot to give up Lowry. By a lot we mean Raymond Felton plus some combination of Iman…

  22. Lakers’ Steve Blake out at least six weeks with elbow injury

    Dec 12, 2013, 4:43 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The Lakers, already without Steve Nash and Jordan Farmar due to injuries, will now be without Steve Blake until likely the start of February at least. Blake has a torn ulnar ligament in his right elbow at least six weeks, the Lakers announced. Speaking with the media, Blake said if he were a baseball player…

  23. Report: Knicks, Raptors talking Kyle Lowry trade

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:32 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    The Knicks need help on offense — a shot creator besides Carmelo Anthony — and they are looking at another point guard to get it. Multiple reports say the Knicks are now talking with the Toronto Raptors about getting Kyle Lowry, who became available when the Raptors picked up Greivis Vasquez in the Rudy Gay…

  24. After being traded, Rudy Gay tried to get money back on Lakers tickets he bought

    Dec 12, 2013, 12:35 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    A lot of players have friends or family in the Los Angeles area (a shocking number live there in the off-season), so when they come to play the Lakers or Clippers they are looking to buy a few extra tickets to get those people in the door. There is always a scramble. Rudy Gay is…

  25. The Extra Pass: Bucks are bad, and that’s good; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    John Henson

    By D.J. Foster All over the league, we’ve seen young teams fighting against the tank. If the playoffs started today, the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns would be in the playoffs. This was unfathomable a few months ago. It wasn’t just about their rosters being bad – they were supposed to be bad. The Milwaukee…
