Ian Begley

His shot didn't fall late in the game, but Carmelo had a strong all-around game last night: 9 rebs (5 offensive), 6 assists, two steals.

Tas Melas

This Gregg Popovich GIF is LeBron James' motivation this year, right? cdn.triangleoffense.com/wp-content/upl…

Nick Friedell

High praise. RT @ESPNChiBulls: Thibs: LeBron 'up there with all-time best' es.pn/1FwCgs1

Ian Begley

Melo says "I don't think (the Bucks are) a team that we should have given up 120 to" after #Knicks' loss. More here: espn.go.com/blog/new-york/…

Alec Burks was 4th in the NBA last year on pts per drive behind only Kevin Durant, LeBron James and Rudy Gay

Lang Greene

LeBron's legacy, of course. RT @Matt Moore Whatever will we argue about when Kobe retires?

Ian Begley

Carmelo credited Jason Kidd for using lineups that gave the #Knicks trouble: "He went small ball, something we haven’t even worked on."

Marc Berman

Carmelo said in locker room things will look better once established starting lineup and rotation is set.

Ian Begley

Carmelo on the Bucks: "Not talking nothing away from them, but I don’t think they're a team that we should have given up 120 points to."

Scott Cacciola

Carmelo declined comment on Iman's hat.

Chris Herring

Carmelo: "We haven't has any consistency" with our lineups, but we can't use that as an excuse for our struggles.

Al Iannazzone

Melo said the Knicks hadn't practiced 'small ball' and credited Jason Kidd for throwing that at them.

Chris Herring

Melo, on tonight's struggle: "We gave up 120 points to Milwaukee. Not taking anything away from them."

Bob Finnan

Cavs forward LeBron James said Monday's game felt like two teams trying to get in regular-season mode. tout.com/m/huo7tg?ref=t…

KC Johnson

LeBron on Rose: "Not surprised at all. As a league, as a fan, it’s great to have him back and playing at a high level."

Chris Haynes

LeBron James reiterated that he will not play in the preseason finale against Memphis on Wednesday.

Ethan J. Skolnick

LeBron on Derrick Rose: "I'm not surprised at all. As a league, as a fan, it's great to have him back playing at a high level."

Chris Haynes

LeBron James says he wasn't surprised to see how good Derrick Rose looked out there. "As a league and as a fan it's great to have him back."

Ethan J. Skolnick

.... (2/2) Gasol said he was honored by Bosh & Wade reaching out to him, and that he spoke to LeBron, who never told him not to go to Miami.

Marc Berman

Looks a lot like last season. It's fourth quarter and Melo can't make a shot. Literally.

Charles F. Gardner

Michael Eric blocked Melo. You may never see that again.

Charles F. Gardner

Melo is back with 7:28 left. Maybe Fisher wants to win this one.

Jason Lloyd

Final: #Cavs 107, Bulls 98. Irving 28p,7a; Varejao 22p,8r; LBJ 18p,7r,6a; Love 9p,13r. CHI Rose 30p. CLE 49%, 9 TO; CHI 42%, 10 TO

Sam Amico

Cavs scoot by Bulls 107-98. Kyrie 28 pts, Varejao 22, LeBron 18, Love 13 rebs. And Derrick Rose, wow. 30 pts. Not a bad game for preseason.

Scott Cacciola

Carmelo just Drake'd a 3-pointer.

Tas Melas

Mike Miller receives LeBron James' standing ovation. #cavs #bulls #lebron #nba instagram.com/p/uZUbNJrnxn/

Sam Amico

LeBron raised hand to come out. Coach David Blatt obliged with Matthew Dellavedova. May be it for the King (18 pts) until regular season.

Jason Lloyd

LeBron looks like he's done, acknowledges cheering crowd as he exits with 18pts, 7rebs, 6asts in 31 minutes.

Bob Finnan

That might be it for LeBron. Played a preseason-high 31 minutes. Had 18 points, 7 rebounds, 6 assists

Nick Friedell

Rose and Gasol come into the game for the last 6:29. LeBron gets a standing O from Columbus crowd and waves.

Eric Pincus

Last fantasy post of the day - I was 11 pick of 16 - difficult spot - where I got Melo

Chris Herring

Positive: NYK assisted on 77% of their 1st-half makes, w/ just 5 TOs. Melo had 17, 6 rebs & 5 assists. Negative: NY allowed MIL to shoot 56%

Eric Pincus

Fantasy squad: Melo - Lawson - Gay - Pau - Crawford - Isaiah - Tristan - Henson- Augustin - Morrow - Bennett - Kaman - 8 starters - odd team

Sam Amico

By mid-season, that Kyrie-to-LeBron alley-oop fastbreak pass off the backboard is gonna work. And I promise you'll love it.

Chris Haynes

#Cavs trying to get fancy. Kyrie Irving attempts to throw off the glass for LeBron James. The Bulls fouled their way out of that highlight.

Jason Lloyd

End 3Q: #Cavs 82, Bulls 75. Varejao 22p,8r; Irving 19p,4a; LBJ 14p,6r,6a. CHI Rose 27p; Gasol 9p,6r. CLE 49%, 9TO; CHI 41%, 6 TO

Fred Kerber

Beg to differ with Carmelo Anthony. Sure looks like he could win scoring title in #Knicks offense -- especially if he faces #Bucks 30 times
