HD VIDEO: Paul George (@Paul George) shoots around after practice bit.ly/1t5X8lS

Gary Lee

In a ESPN article by Henry Abbott, Paul George was “turned off” to sign with LA because of Kobe via @Ryan Ward. lakersnation.com/lakers-rumors-…

Surya Fernandez

Bosh on why people are surprised by Tyler Johnson's athleticism: "Well, yeah. You know the obvious..." Pauses and laughs, "He's a short PG."

Ira Winderman

Bosh on if Napier is Heat's best natural PG, "He's naturally little so he's got to be a good point guard."

Kurt Helin

Has Kobe Bryant cost the Lakers Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George and others? dlvr.it/7GNCmt

Scott Agness

Injury bug has really bit the #Pacers. Three starters - PG, West, and Stuckey - missing time even before the regular season tips off.

Mark Montieth

Vogel on Paul George :"I told him if he's not ready by Halloween, he's milking it. " #ThatsAJoke

Mark Montieth

Paul George shooting and moving well after practice. http://t.co/Mmum4p0JI1

Vincent Ellis

SVG pretty much confirms Jennings will be opening night starter at PG. Drummond and Smith other two certainties (Monroe suspension).

Mike Trudell

With no other PG's on the roster healthy right now, Ronnie Price has played 34 minutes with 6:49 to go. Will reach 40 if he stays in.

Mike Trudell

Wayne Ellington's 0 for 6 from the field (LAL 8 for 30) in part because he's playing PG, which he's never done in his life.

Bill Oram

Unlikely point guards are a theme from last year: Kobe, Henry, Sacre, Meeks, Bazemore all saw minutes at PG* *Only one of these is a lie.

Eric Pincus

Trey Burke has the day off - Dante Exum starting at pg for Utah

Eric Pincus

Lakers vs. Jazz just tipped - my first in-person view of either team - Price starting at pg for LAL

Alan Hahn

I like this piece about new #Knicks PG Jose Calderon by my friend @Jessica Camerato: bit.ly/ZH6l7q

Emily Austen

5 mins 'til tip-off! In today's game preview, Marc & I discuss the 44-min game, a jet-lagged Nets team & PG matchups: on.nba.com/1nw6y8v

Ted Davis

7 step rule is on in NY. Comfy chair, Big Screen Hi Def, and yes a telescope in my room. See pg 34 of my contract! http://t.co/cx7i1QXcyu

Josh Robbins

With Orlando trailing 65-45, rookie PG Elfrid Payton is the only Magic player without a negative plus/minus tonight. (He's at zero.)

Earl K. Sneed

Got to feel bad for the Pacers, who are already without Paul George. David West is being helped up and walking with assistance of teammates.

Shams Charania

Cavs' Chris Crawford likely bound for D-League Canton, but has built a case for third string PG. 8 assists, 37 minutes. A.J. Price: 5 in 67.

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker will be out tonight for rest purposes. Cory Joseph will start at PG.

Mike Tokito

Lillard has not played a game in 10 days. We'll see how he looks. Maccabi's PG is 5-11.

Jerry Zgoda

5 games in 8 days and no B. Knight, no Wolters at PG for Bucks played into Flip's decision. Would rather Ricky face Westbrook on Sunday

Gabriel Rosenbaun

#LNB ¿Posiciones por puntos (2 por PG y 1 por PP) o por porcentaje de triunfos? Miren esto >> lnb.com.ar/page/estad_pos…

Jerry Zgoda

Ricky will not play tonight in Cedar Rapids, Zach will start at PG. Flip says it's just to rest and keep players healthy

Mike Trudell

2/2: no PG penetration (Lin, Nash, Clarkson out); playing PF’s in Boozer/Randle on the elbow; Kobe working out of post/elbow.

Bob Finnan

#Cavs rest PF Kevin Love and F Shawn Marion vs. Dallas. Blatt might start Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao. PG Kyrie Irving to return

Ray Richardson

#Twolves have that much faith. MT @TheWileECoyote: If PG & SG is such a challenge, why don't they just let Zach LaVine back up SG for now?

Bill Oram

Appling is likely one of the first preseason cuts, but him leaving with a dead arm is just another blow to PG depth.

Paul Garcia

Austin Daye led the Spurs in scoring with 17 points. 11 points for Baynes, 10 for Belinelli & Joseph. Suns' PG trio with 51 points.

Paul Garcia

Spurs trail the Suns at the half 60-47. PHX outscored SA 35-24 in the 2Q. Baynes & Daye with 11 points each. Suns PG dragon with 35 points

Jeff McDonald

Suns' 3-PG lineup (Bledsoe, Dragic, Thomas) gave Spurs fits down the stretch of the half.

Justin Verrier

Frontcourt has this Twitter thing figured out. RT @Los Angeles Lakers PG: R. Price SG: @Kobe Bryant SF: Wes Johnson PF: @MisterCBooz C: @DreadheadJizzle

Jason Lieser

No starting PG decided yet. Erik Spoelstra: "There's no controversy... I'm using the preseason to evaluate everything."

Scott Agness

16 Pacers players will visit an Indiana HS football game Friday in groups of 4, plus Pacemates & broadcasters. PG & GHill at CG v Cathedral.

Matt Steinmetz

You'll see more 2-guard fronts for Warriors this year vs. Curry alone at top. Simple ball swing from PG to SG, or vice versa, does wonders.

Chris Fedor

#Cavs pick up the defense, Thompson returns with a purpose & the case to keep 3 PG's: Fedor's five observations cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Alex Kennedy

Dellavedova on playing against PG @Giannis Antetokounmpo: "I just tried to get around him. It’s very unique having a guard that size playing the point."

Scott Agness

Frank Vogel with an update on Paul George, says he's putting more pressure on his right leg. bit.ly/1u6SSxE

Sam Amico

Coach Frank Vogel says Pacers have "displayed a really good spirit" so far despite tough loss of star Paul George. I'd agree with him there.

Josh Lewenberg

Re: Lou at the point… It's going just about as well as you might expect. Lots of 1-on-1, little ball movement. Very good player, not a PG

Dwain Price

"He’s a really good point guard. We’re happy to have him here.’’ -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on 5-7 Japanese PG Yuki Togashi

Scott Agness

There’s no stopping LeBron. But you already knew that. … Pacers need a wing defender to stand out in PG’s absence. Gonna take time.
