Nick Friedell

Gasol talked last night about how it will be tough for Butler to maintain high level of consistency all year by playing so many minutes.

Jimmy Spencer

When was the last time the @Warriors had a superstar like Stephen Curry? Chris Mullin? So far tonight: 35 points, 8-of-11 on 3-pointers.

Shandel Richardson

I would love to see Steph Curry in place of Kobe Bryant playing for the Lakers and allowed to shoot 35 times a game.

John Reid

Pelicans got to get the ball in Anthony Davis' more in the fourth quarter. He scored two points in the third quarter.

Bill Herenda

End Q3 Kings up 75-70. Pels end quarter on 13-11 run. Cousins and Andersons lead w/18pts #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Joseph Goodman

Curry with his eighth three-pointer and fans are filing out. Really? Warriors 104, Heat 95 3:29 left.

Victor Oquendo

Steph Curry is not of this earth.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Napier now w/ 4 turnovers, Chalmers is 4-for-15, and Curry (35 points) is putting this game on ice.

Joe Cowley

Rose coming back in, with Dunleavy and Pau.

James Ham

Cousins stat line so far - 18 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists.

James Ham

DeMarcus Cousins notches his 7th straight double-double and 11th of the season.

Joe Cowley

Most NBA stars play 35 minutes a night. Rose only needs 25 to completely dazzle you.

John Reid

Austin Rivers got to get the ball out of his hands quicker. Missed opportunity for a potential Anthony Davis' dunk just happened.

Joe Cowley

Great left hand by Niko ... Rose would have dunked it.

Vincent Goodwill

Drummond getting worked on by Arnie Kander, I think he bumped knees with Ilyasova for his 4th foul

Charles F. Gardner

Drummond charges into Ilyasova and picks up fourth foul, then limps to Detroit bench.

Joe Cowley

No Rose to start the second. Heroes only play in the fourth.

Charles F. Gardner

Nowhere for Giannis to go on his drives with Detroit big men sagging. Developing a mid-range game next big step for him.

Rusty Simmons

How long can you go without Curry?

Bill Herenda

64-57 Kings lead. Sac 15-8 run to start Q3 - 1st 8 pts by Cousins, next 7 by Casspi #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Joe Cowley

Rose is sitting right now, he's studying.

Chris Palmer

Chris Paul is the best pure point guard. Curry gets the slight nod overall.

James Ham

Casspi and Cousins running the Pelicans ragged in the third. Kings lead 64-57.

Frank Madden

VIDEO: Jabari Parker put Josh Smith on a poster after receiving a fast-break pass from Giannis. #YOUNGBUCKS sbnation.com/e/7054320

Jason Jones

Impressive start to the third by the Kings. They're up 64-57 and Cousins is beginning to take over with 16 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists.

Dave Mason

Cousins is fired up! You know he wants to win this one for his guy Malone.

Bill Herenda

Cousins with gorgeous dish to Casspi Kings extend lead to five 62-57 #NBA #SacKings @CSNAuthentic @CSNKings

Joe Cowley

In all fairness, Rose is not used to playing 50,000 feet above sea level. It throws off his defense.

Charles F. Gardner

Giannis 1 for 8 so far tonight.

Sam Smith

Gasol/Bairstow probably not Bulls best defensive lineup. Nuggets shooting 63% late in first

Surya Fernandez

Both the Heat and the Warriors have each shot 10-for-18 from 3-point land. Curry is 7-10. Shawne Williams 3-3, Bosh 2-3, Deng 2-3.

Joe Cowley

Rose's warm-up is a great fit. Snug, but in a flattering way.

Joe Cowley

Rose slapping hands with all his teammates. Team guy. And has that chair on the bench on lockdown. It's not moving.

James Ham

Cousins with a quick 8 points in the third. 9:02 remaining in the quarter.

Joe Cowley

All positive Rose talk, rest of the night. Promise.

Surya Fernandez

Warriors lead the Heat 91-86 entering the final quarter. Curry has 30 points to lead all scorers. Bosh has 21 points, Deng 15, Chalmers 14.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Warriors lead, 91-86, after 3. Curry is 7-for-10 from 3, and has 30, plus 4 rebounds, 6 assists.

Charles F. Gardner

Jabari lefty dunk on pass from Giannis. Parker has 12 on 6-for-9 shooting.

Joe Cowley

Tonight when it's tweeted that Lawson was man-handling Rose, it's hatin'. Can't have it both ways. Facts are facts.

James Ham

Cheese and rice, DeMarcus Cousins has moves.

Ira Winderman

Warriors 91, Heat 86 at end of three. Curry with 30 points, including 7 of 10 on 3s. Klay with 18. Bosh with 21 and 8 for Heat. Deng with 15

Jason Lieser

End Q3: Warriors 91, Heat 86. Golden State has blown some chances to take control. Bosh: 21p, 8r. Curry: 30p, 6a. GSW still shooting 63%.

Joe Cowley

Memo: Yesterday it was tweeted how Rose had Burke in the fetal position in that first quarter. No one said boo.

James Ham

Cousins has a Santa-size bag of tricks.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Curry effect there: Haslem shows hard, no one rotates behind him. Easy layup.

Jimmy Spencer

ALERT: Stephen Curry just missed a 3-pointer.

Joseph Goodman

Steph Curry is 7 of 9 from three-point range...and after his seventh make he convulsed a little in celebration...and so did I.

Jimmy Spencer

Will Stephen Curry go down as the greatest 3-point shooter in @NBA history?

Chuck Swirsky

Nuggets 19-14 547 left 1st...6 each for Butler and Gasol

Jason Jones

DeMarcus Cousins just had some words for Austin Rivers. Why? I have no idea.
