  1. Stephen Curry wants to retire a Warrior

    Jun 5, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Warriors' Curry is congratulated by fans in the Warriors' overtime win over the Spurs during Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oakland

    Stephen Curry loves the Warriors. The Warriors love Stephen Curry. Curry just led Golden State to only its second postseason berth since 1994, and to top it off, the Warriors upset the Nuggets in the first round. Just four years into his career, Curry has become one of the NBA’s best and most-exciting players, and…

  2. PBT Live Blog: Heat overwhelm Pacers 99-76, advance to NBA finals

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    END OF GAME: Miami wins 99-76, they advance to take on the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals. Game 1 Thursday night in Miami. Indiana had a fantastic season, they are a young and growing team that will learn a lot from this. Paul George and Roy Hibbert had coming out parties on the national…

  3. LeBron’s Game 7 history shows he needs help for Heat to advance

    Jun 3, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Monday night is just number four. For some reason it feels like LeBron James has been in more Game 7s in his career, but there have been just three. Two came with the Cavaliers, one with the Heat last season. And if you are going to draw one conclusion from those three games and extrapolate…

  4. Pacers/Heat Game 7 preview: Win or go home

    Jun 3, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Heat's James and Pacers' Stephenson prepare to play during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    The Miami Heat are at home, they have the swagger that comes with having hung a banner, they are battle tested, and they have the best player in the world on their team. He’s the trump card. The Indiana Pacers are confident, they have the blueprint on how to win against the Heat, they are…

  5. Heat/Pacers Game 6 preview: Indiana must get back to scoring to stay alive

    Jun 1, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Heat's James and Pacers' Stephenson prepare to play during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    After four games where the Pacers owned the offensive glass, got to the free throw line and used those things to score on the Heat at a shocking rate, Game 5 was a radical departure. Indiana grabbed the offensive rebound on just 18.8 percent of their missed shots (it had been 39.9 percent for the…

  6. Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem replace Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh as LeBron’s scoring sidekicks

    May 31, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, LeBron James

    Chris Bosh missed the Heat’s first shot, Dwyane Wade missed their second, and Udonis Haslem missed their third. Of those three players, one attempted more shots than each of the other two and also didn’t miss again. Who was it? LeBron James has led the Heat in scoring in all five games of the Eastern…

  7. Frank Vogel errs by readily sitting George Hill, Lance Stephenson with foul trouble

    May 31, 2013, 8:30 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Four

    George Hill picked up his fourth foul midway through the third quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, and after he hit a technical free throw on his way to the bench (thanks to jawing between Mario Chalmers, David West and Udonis Haslem), the Pacers led by two points. By the time Hill…

  8. Paul George and Roy Hibbert score Pacers’ first 29 points in loss to Heat

    May 31, 2013, 2:28 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Chris Andersen’s shoulder/stare down/shove of Tyler Hansbrough early in the second quarter of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals distracted from another interesting development that followed. Once the dust settled, Hansbrough made one of two free throws granted due to Andersen’s flagrant 1. Those were the Pacers’ first points scored by someone other than…

  9. LeBron James’ monster third quarter swings game (VIDEO)

    May 31, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    For the first half of this game (and frankly most of the last one) LeBron James was passive, settling for jumpers rather than challenge Roy Hibbert and the Pacers’ size up front. Then the third quarter happened. LeBron probably looked the most Jordan we have ever seen of him — he screamed at his teammates…

  10. For a night Heat solve Pacers’ rebounding, defensive puzzle

    May 31, 2013, 12:27 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    For four games the Pacers offense had been fueled by offensive rebounds and getting to the free throw line. Those plays and the surprising success of the Pacers offense — averaging 111.6 points per 100 possessions — had the series tied 2-2. In Game 5 things were different. Indiana had just six offensive rebounds, grabbing…

  11. LeBron takes over, Heat take Game 5 from Pacers

    May 31, 2013, 12:11 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James directs his teammates against the Indiana Pacers during the fourth quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    We can talk about Xs and Os, offense versus defense, and individual player matchups over the course of a seven game playoff series. But sometimes, it all boils down to something as simple as which team the best player in the game plays for. That was certainly the case in Game 5 of the Eastern…

  12. Heat/Pacers Game 5 preview: Hibbert is Heat’s big problem

    May 30, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert works against Heat's Andersen during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    Forty percent. That is the key number. So far in the Eastern Conference Finals the Indiana Pacers have grabbed the offensive rebound on 39.9 percent of their missed shots — four out of 10 times they miss, they get a second chance. A fair amount of the time that is an easy tip-in or put-back…

  13. Roy Hibbert dominating Heat inside

    May 29, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert works against Heat's Andersen during the fourth quarter in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series in Indianapolis

    The LeBron James/Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh Miami Heat have allowed only one player to average at least 10 points, 10 rebounds and shoot 45 percent in a playoff series. Roy Hibbert is on the verge of becoming the second. Hibbert – who’s crushing the threshold by averaging 22.8 points and 12.0 rebounds per game and shooting…

  14. Preview: Pacers know what to do. Heat know it’s coming. Whoever executes wins.

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Somewhere around Game 4 or 5 of a series there are no more secrets. You know the other team’s plays, the tendencies, the adjustments they made, the matchups they are trying to force. You take away everything you can and try to leave your opponent with only the worst options. We are at this point…

  15. Heat blowout win doesn’t define series, but it might win it

    May 27, 2013, 12:36 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Even for the Miami Heat, this game was an outlier. They scored 70 points on 63 percent shooting with one turnover in the first half. Udonis Haslem hit 8-of-9 to lead Heat players outside the “big three” shooting 55 percent. Haslem’s shooting eventually pulled Roy Hibbert away from the paint and opened everything inside. LeBron…

  16. Heat send a message with blowout Game 3 win over Pacers

    May 27, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Pacers' West, Stephenson and George react near the end of Game 3 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    The Heat didn’t only reclaim home court advantage in the Eastern Conference Finals with a lopsided 114-96 victory in Indiana on Sunday — they sent a message. Miami rolled from the very start, and in doing so reminded us of just how dominant this team was all season long. In the first two games of…

  17. Highlights from Heat’s insane first half against Pacers (VIDEO)

    May 26, 2013, 11:49 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    The numbers seem unreal: 70 points on 62.8 percent shooting, 15 assists to one turnover, LeBron James 7-of-11, Udonis Haslem 6-of-7. The Miami Heat played about as perfect a half of basketball as they could and with that overwhelmed a very good Pacers’ defense. The result was a 14 point lead at the break that…

  18. Pacers’ Vogel says Heat have more “intelligent” plan vs. Hibbert than Knicks

    May 24, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    Roy Hibbert made life difficult in the paint for the Knicks in the second round — we’ve all seen Hibbert block Carmelo Anthony’s shot at the rim but that is just the tip of the iceberg. He altered and blocked all kinds of shots inside and owned the paint. The Miami heat scored 60 points…

  19. Chris Andersen complements Heat’s Big Three so well

    May 23, 2013, 2:39 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    For the 145th time since they joined forces in Miami, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh finished as the Heat’s top three scorers. For the first time in the 2013 calendar year, the fourth-leading scorer – Chris Andersen – scored more than 15 points. It’s been much less of a concern that many expected…

  20. George Hill injury jeopardizes Pacers’ identity

    May 17, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    George Hill, Roy Hibbert, D.J. Augustin

    The puzzle pieces have changed, but the picture of the sailboat they form has not. Under Frank Vogel, the Pacers have relied heavily on their starters. Between them, George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert excel in all areas of the court, offensively and defensively, and really balance each other. But…

  21. Feisty Bulls refuse to go quietly, but Heat comeback closes out series

    May 15, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    Heat's James drives past Bulls' Joakim Noah during the fourth quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference semi-final basketball playoff in Miam

    You knew the Bulls were not just going concede the series to the Heat. Well, maybe you didn’t think that when Miami raced out to a 22-4 lead to open Game 5 Wednesday, but these Bulls quit as often as a T-1000 Terminator. All playoffs they have had reasons to give up because of injuries,…

  22. Heat take care of business, sweep Bucks out of playoffs 88-77

    Apr 28, 2013, 7:35 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Allen and James slap hands during the second half of Game 4 of their NBA first round playoff series in Milwaukee

    This is what we all expected — a four-game sweep by a Heat team that was just vastly superior to a Bucks team that on top of everything else stumbled into the playoffs. Four games, all decided by double digits and never in doubt at the end, and that continued Sunday with the Heat knocking…

  23. Miami brings workmanlike effort, that’s enough to win, lead Bucks 3-0

    Apr 25, 2013, 11:02 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    This was just a better team taking care of business. You knew the Milwaukee Bucks would come out with a lot of fire in front of the home crowd and they did, leading by as many as 10 in the first half. But for the Heat this was a professional outing, like a game in…

  24. Heat to play LeBron, Wade, Bosh Friday vs. Celtics

    Apr 12, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Welcome to NBA basketball the final week of the regular season. The Miami Heat are going to throw their big three out on the court Friday night for the first time in a couple weeks — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will all play against the Celtics, coach Eric Spoelstra told the media,…

Or, what you missed while reading up on the gory, unromantic history of Valentines Day… Lakers 91, Suns 85: The Lakers won this one eventually, but as has been the case plenty of times throughout the season, they made it unnecessarily difficult on themselves.
