First team nearly a clean sweep, but one top teamer didn’t even make other two ballots

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

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…

We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…
Report: Celtics interested in Utah’s Gordon Hayward. So are a lot of teams. Doesn’t mean he’ll be moved.
Feb 19, 2014, 12:04 AM EST
Gordon Hayward has a lot of fans in NBA front offices. His ability to shoot it on a catch-and-shoot or off the bounce, his ability to create his own shot, the fact he’s a willing defender has a lot of teams seeing him as a good fit for what they do. He’s also a restricted…

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…

NEW ORLEANS — Damian Lillard’s busy All-Star Saturday night started out pretty darn well — with a repeat win. Lillard will be in all three major events on the evening and first out of the gate he and Trey Burke teamed up to win the NBA All-Star Saturday Skills Challenge — by just one tenth…

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…

The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…
Feb 6, 2014, 8:11 PM EST
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…

Typically, rookies don’t get noticed. Typically, players from overseas need more time to build an American following. Typically, Milwaukee Bucks are ignored. Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely atypical. “The Greek Freak” has wowed fans all season with his long arms, diverse skillset and outward happiness. He’s been so impressive, he’ll be competing in Skills Challenge –…

A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

The NBA announced the field for the Rising Stars Challenge, but the teams won’t be selected until next week. A sucker for any opportunity to hold a mock draft, I enlisted Kurt into holding our own. We followed the same positional rules whoever picks the teams on TNT next Thursday – the general managers have yet to…
Michael Carter-Williams, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard all in All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge
Jan 29, 2014, 5:45 PM EST
While the All-Star Game itself is an exhibition for the biggest names in basketball, a sneaky fun part of All-Star Weekend is always the Rising Stars Challenge — watching the games best young players put on a little show. And there are plenty of good young players to showcase this season. Last season’s Rookie of…
