    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while checking out what porn stars look like without makeup… Heat 98, Hawks 81: If Tuesday night was any indication, the Hawks should want to win enough games from here on out to avoid slipping to the eighth seed and getting the Heat…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: After the Heat it gets interesting

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:36 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week. Those games don’t foreshadow playoff outcomes as much as hint at seedings — if Denver can get home court in the first round whoever has to face them is in trouble.…

  3. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Miami wants to know if you have any other challengers

Lakers 90, Bulls 81: The Lakers offense has been better of late and the Bulls offense continues to be unimpressive. At best. Those things combine to give the…

  4. Report: Celtics were closer than you think to trading Paul Pierce

    Mar 8, 2013, 5:04 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The idea of Paul Pierce in an Dallas Mavericks uniform just seems… wrong. Yet apparently it was closer to happening than we knew. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was listening to offers and talking about maybe blowing up Boston and restarting, but the conventional wisdom was he wouldn’t go through with it. But he almost did,…

  5. Vince Carter moves up all-time scoring list, then hits game winner (VIDEO)

    Feb 23, 2013, 11:01 AM EST

    Vince Carter

    Vince Carter — idol to much of a younger generation — is still making plays. Like finding a way to score near the rim, get the and-one, and with it pass Gary Payton to move into 28th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. With Carter it’s a combination of a guy who could always score…

  6. Hakim Warrick to Orlando headlines small trades at deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:28 PM EST

    Hakim Warrick, Jason Thompson

    We didn’t get any blockbuster trades at this year’s NBA trading deadline. We saw Rudy Gay moved a few weeks before and J.J. Redick did get moved just before the deadline. But a lot of what happened at the deadline was smaller deals that slid under the radar. Here is a quick wrap-up of those…

  7. Three best dunks of All-Star Dunk Contest

    Feb 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This isn’t a dunk contest that is going to go down in history with the greats. Well, unless you’re a Raptors fan. It was up and down, plenty of misfires and missed dunks no doubt. But there were some jaw dropping moments, too. Terrence Ross won because he had a few of them. Then there…

  8. Raptors’ Ross wins dunk contest with Toronto tributes

    Feb 17, 2013, 12:03 AM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Terrence Ross pulled out the Vince Carter Raptors throwback jersey, then did a throwback Vince Carter dunk. Then he did a not-very-far throwback dunk of Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan. Then he dunked over a kid. All the while Toronto’s own Drake was jumping around in the first row like a giddy 12-year-old boy. It all worked.…

  9. Dallas Mavericks point guard Darren Collison wants to stick around long term

    Feb 15, 2013, 4:00 PM EST

    Mavericks guard Collison drives past Thunder guard Westbrook in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Darren Collison has not had an easy season. He was benched for Derek Fisher earlier in the year, despite the fact Fisher couldn’t actually move on the court. He’s been yanked off the court for guys like Mike James, and he’s survived the Roddy Beaubois experience. At no point has it looked like the Mavericks…

  10. Bledsoe, Thompson, lots of young stars idolize Vince Carter

    Feb 15, 2013, 3:54 PM EST

    Vince Carter Raptors

    HOUSTON — When NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest participant Eric Bledsoe was asked about his favorite dunk contest dunk he didn’t hesitate. “I think that dunk contest where Vince Carter did the 360,” Bledsoe said. That same answer came up over and over with young players — to them the legend of Michael Jordan or…

  11. A win for longevity: Vince Carter passes Larry Bird on all-time scoring list

    Feb 14, 2013, 10:57 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Last night a 36-year-old Vince Carter channeled the version of himself from 12 years ago (if that younger self was a better three-point shooter) and dominated the key stretch of the Mavericks win over the Kings. Carter scored 17 points in the third quarter with a barrage of threes, going 5-of-7 from deep in the…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at toys you can buy that would traumatize your child…. Celtics 71, Bulls 69: Man this game was ugly.

  14. Mavericks assure Vince Carter he will not be traded

    Feb 7, 2013, 5:15 PM EST

    Vince Carter, Victor Claver, LaMarcus Aldridge

    There were times you could count on Dallas to be a player at the trade deadline — at Mark Cuban’s urging the Mavericks have been aggressive in team building. But the long-term plan in Dallas now is to maintain their cap space for next summer and go after big-time free agents with a max deal…

  15. The Dallas Mavericks are growing mediocre beards

    Feb 7, 2013, 3:07 PM EST

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    You’ve probably heard of guys growing letting their facial hair grow for the postseason. The Clippers did it last year with hilarious results — Blake Griffin made Paul Pierce‘s beard look lustrous and full by comparison. The tradition of playoff beards has been around a long time in all sports, but the Dallas Mavericks are…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: LeBron, Wade enough for Heat

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  17. Warriors hang on to beat Mavericks in battle of shorthanded teams

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:07 AM EST

    David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    The second half of the TNT doubleheader on Thursday lost some of its luster before the game even started, with both Stephen Curry of the Warriors and Dirk Nowitzki of the Mavericks being ruled out due to injury. But the game turned out to be exciting nonetheless, as others stepped up on both sides to…

    Vince Carter taught Warriors rookie Harrison Barnes a bit of a lesson as the first half came to an end at Oracle Arena on Thursday, and we’re all a little better off because of it. With the Mavericks playing for the last shot of the half as point guard Darren Collison dribbled down the clock…

  19. Dirk Nowitzki out for Dallas Thursday night with hip injury

    Jan 31, 2013, 9:57 PM EST

    Dirk Nowitzki

    The NBA’s second showcase game on Thursday night is losing a lot of its star power. First, Stephen Curry is out for Golden State with a sprained ankle. Now comes the news Dirk Nowitzki will be out with a right adductor injury, tweets Earl Sneed of Mavs.com. This is the muscle you think of as…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Portland, Dallas end in a shootout

    Jan 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while spending way too much time on the Stacy King soundboard…. Lakers 111, Hornets 106: The renaissance of the Lakers offense continues — Kobe Bryant had 11 assists, Dwight Howard rolled to the rim for 24 and the Lakers played beautiful basketball. But…

  21. Chris Bosh says he’s a lock to make the Hall of Fame

    Jan 26, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    chris bosh all-star hall of fame

    Miami Heat center Chris Bosh was selected to the All-Star team as a reserve by the coaches, marking the eighth time he’s received the honor in his 10 NBA seasons. That, along with the championship ring he earned a season ago might mean he’s already assured himself a spot in the Basketball Hall of Fame.…

  22. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nuggets knock of Thunder in OT

    Jan 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while taking out your frustrations in the “rage room”… Nuggets 121, Thunder 118 (OT): This was the kind of game that fans find entertaining and makes a coach cringe. Entertaining because it was close most of the way, was played at a fast…

  23. Vince Carter dunks on Ibaka, makes sure to get his ‘motorcycle’ celebration in afterward (VIDEO)

    Jan 19, 2013, 2:00 PM EST

    vince carter motorcycle celebration

    The best part of this dunk wasn’t the fact that in crunch time of a tight game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Vince Carter went strong to the rack and threw it down over Serge Ibaka. No, the awesomeness came a second or two later, when Carter made sure to get in his patented motorcycle-revving…

  24. Earl Clark making the most of his opportunity with the Lakers

    Jan 14, 2013, 9:22 PM EST

    Dion Waiters,  Earl Clark

    Earl Clark was supposed to be nothing more than an afterthought for the Lakers this season. But a concussion to starting power forward Pau Gasol has opened the door for Clark to contribute, and he’s made more than expected of his opportunity thus far. Clark was a throw-in as part of the trade that brought…
