  3. Raptors trying to rest Kyle Lowry down the stretch

    Kyle Lowry, after averaging 36.7 minutes per game in his first 68 games this season, played just 27 minutes in a win over the Hawks on Sunday. He’d played less only in a pair of blowout wins over the Jazz. Cause for concern for the Raptors? Barely. It’s much more indicative of Toronto’s positive season.…

    Mar 24, 2014, 2:33 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while eating a $250 hamburger… Jarrett Jack, Cleveland Cavaliers. Earlier on Sunday the Atlanta Hawks had lost and so the Knicks had real motivation at the Garden vs. the Cavaliers — win and NY is just two games back of the last playoff spot in…

    Mar 23, 2014, 4:00 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan; Kyle Lowry

    Atlanta has been playing with a little fire of late, ever since the hot Knicks (winners of eight in a row heading into Sunday night) put pressure on them for the final playoff spot in the East. This was the kind of loss the Hawks can’t afford if they want to make the postseason. Atlanta…

    Dwight Howard, Kyle Lowry

    Rockets replacing Rick Adelman with Kevin McHale caused friction.

  11. Terrence Ross 3-pointer hits rim and goes around and around and around and around and arou–

    Mar 18, 2014, 10:57 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Atlanta Hawks

    Zarar Siddiqi of Raptors Republic has another angle, and I count 4.5 revolutions around the rim. That’s a tough miss – especially considering the game’s result. Toronto lost to the Hawks, 118-113, in overtime. Obviously the butterfly effect has an impact, but had Ross’ shot fallen, maybe the Raptors would have won in regulation. Instead,…

    Mar 16, 2014, 9:00 PM EDT

    Warriors Raptors Basketball

  13. Terrence Ross still has to take out the trash when he visits his mom’s house

    Mar 14, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Toronto Raptors

    Terrence Ross has won a Dunk Contest. He scored 51 points in a game. He starts for the Eastern Conference’s third-best team. But he still has to take out the trash when he goes to his mom’s house. Raptors.com interviewed Ross with his mom, Marcine Ross, when Toronto played in his hometown of Portland last…

  14. Towel boy has to dive out of way of Tyler Hansbrough on break (VIDEO)

    Mar 11, 2014, 1:10 PM EDT

    Newly acquired NBA basketball player Hansbrough goes up for a slam dunk during a photo shoot  for the Toronto Raptors in Toronto

    To be fair to the ball boy, nobody expects Tyler Hansbrough to make a steal on the perimeter then race out on the fast break by himself.

  15. Sunday NBA grades: All hail the unstoppable Jodie Meeks

    Mar 10, 2014, 12:59 AM EDT

    Jodie Meeks, Kevin Durant

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Pharrell Williams loves the Arby’s hat… • Roy Hibbert got a new…

  17. Taj Gibson, on a New York City subway, learned how ‘gangster’ Mike Dunleavy is

    Mar 5, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    Mike Dunleavy, Taj Gibson, Carlos Boozer

    Taj Gibson grew up in Brooklyn and attended USC. Mike Dunleavy graduated from a college-prep school in Oregon and attended Duke. They didn’t exactly have the same upbringings, but the Bulls teammates formed a bond years ago. On the New York City subway. Late at night. Once Dunleavy was already in the NBA. Gibson on…

  18. Report: Joe Dumars, frustrated with criticism, expected to be out as Pistons’ general manager

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:07 AM EDT

    Joe Dumars

    Joe Dumars might not be replaced by Isiah Thomas, but it still seems unlikely Dumars will return next season as the Detroit Pistons’ general manager. Dumars is in the final season of his contract. Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach. And he didn’t make a move at the trade deadline. All signs…

  19. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  20. DeMar DeRozan wants to know where he’d get picked in 2009 re-draft

    Mar 3, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Warriors Raptors Basketball

    Imagining how previous NBA drafts would play out in hindsight is always fun, an instant debate starter for basketball fans. I’m sure we’ve all wasted a countless hours analyzing questions like: Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh No. 3 behind LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in 2004? Do half the top-eight picks in 2013 remain in…

    Mar 3, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors vs Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors and Raptors played the best game of the day Sunday, one that really featured Stephen Curry and DeMar DeRozan taking turns in a little battle much of the night. Curry finished with 34 points on 13-of-27 shooting, carrying the Warriors offense on a night Klay Thompson (4-15) and David Lee (8-of-18) were not…
