#Twolves center Gorgui Dieng's fourth quarter: 4 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists.

Erik Gundersen

"After the PRP injection in my knee, everything is coming up short." -- Nicolas Batum

Enric Corbella

Un estelar Marc Gasol demuestra en la dura Portland que es el mejor pívot de la NBA marca.com/2014/11/29/bal… @marca http://t.co/LEfYYJPiK9

Paul Garcia

Spurs announce Patty Mills and Tiago Splitter will both be out Sunday vs. Boston.

Royce Young

Serge Ibaka dunked just a step within the free throw line tonight: youtu.be/YHCOc0RYx14

Jon Krawczynski

Not seeing the next step I expected Gorgui Dieng to take with all these extra minutes with Pek out. Has to be better

Erik Gundersen

FINAL: Memphis 112, Portland 99. Great all-around game by the Memphis. Gasol with 26, 9 assists, 7 rebounds.

Mark Medina

Tonight, Lakers play offense as if they're all trying to grab the last turkey leg. They also play defense as if they ate too much food

Erik Gundersen

Marc Gasol has no mercy this year. My goodness.

Jon Krawczynski

Somewhere David Kahn is saying: "see?!? I told you I was right to pass on cousins!"

Diamond Leung

As Stephen Curry promised, a music video from the team plane: instagram.com/p/v-FbrsFy6a/

Erik Gundersen

Grizz lead 83-70 after three. Gasol has 20, 5 assists, 4 rebounds. Conley with 13, 9 assists, 6 rebounds. Dominant MEM performance so far.

Joe Freeman

End of 3rd: Grizzlies lead #Blazers 83-70. LA has 17 ps, 10 rs, Matthews has 18 ps. Gasol has 20 ps, Conley has 13 ps, 9 ats, 6 rs for Mem.

Sean Highkin

MVP is a four-man race at this point between Davis, Boogie, Gasol and Steph.

Mike Richman

Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph have combined for 32 points (14-for-24) with 15 rebounds and six assists

Erik Gundersen

Gasol-Conley pick and rolls destroying the Blazers.

Andy Greder

Really the first time he's gotten into trouble since Nikola Pekovic went down. RT @DerekJamesNBA: And three fouls on Dieng now.

Mike Trudell

After a slick reverse layup, Lin somewhat accidentally drew Gorgiu Dieng's 3rd PF at the 5:29 mark. LAL up 42-33.

Mike Trudell

Anthony Bennett's been effective for Minnesota since Dieng picked up that early 2nd PF, scoring 9 points w/3 boards and an assist in 14 min.

Sean Highkin

Civil War night at the Rose Garden. Oregon and OSU cheerleaders taking turns dancing. UO picking way better songs. Go Ducks.

Ryan Wolstat

Lowry thinks DeRozan will be fine, if not, “next man up.” Vasquez says if he’s out, they have “best bench in league … coach has a squad."

Josh Lewenberg

Lowry on DeRozan injury: "We know he's going to be fine. We know he's going to take care of his body and we'll see what's going on."

Diamond Leung

Stephen Curry committed four turnovers, meaning some money for Mom: ibabuzz.com/warriors/2014/…

Erik Gundersen

It'd probably help the Blazers if Nicolas Batum could start hitting some more of those threes. He's shooting under 30% to start the year.

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle: "You don’t like to see a guy like DeRozan go out. .. He’s a great young player having a terrific year, and we hope he’s OK."

Dwight Jaynes

Memphis was terrific with Gasol and Randolph on the bench

Diamond Leung

Stephen Curry joking about his 3-point shooting after the game: facebook.com/StephenCurryOf…

Mike Trudell

Since Dieng went out, Boozer has 3 times scored easily inside (6 points). Mo Williams keeping MIN around at 15-13 into the 1st time out.

Sean Highkin

I am, however, a fan of Rose Garden game ops playing AC/DC's "If You Want Blood (You Got It)" whenever there's blood spilled on the floor.

Dan McCarney

Classic Spurs ball movement: Diaw to Parker to Leonard, who drills the wing 3 for a 10-point lead with 28.3 seconds left.

Mike Trudell

MIN's lone true big man that's healthy, G. Dieng, picks up 2 quick fouls. A. Bennett checks in to replace him in a real small MIN line up.

Eric Pincus

Quick 2nd on Dieng - no Pek or Turiaf tonight - so Anthony Bennett in at center

Vincent Goodwill

Andre Drummond's 26-20 game is the first 20-20 game of the season. The third of his career

Paul Coro

Len replaces Plumlee, who has no points and one rebound in 17 minutes. DEN 82-59. #SunsAtNuggets

Paul Coro

Hornacek called over Plumlee. Guessing it was an order to not play hesitantly. Traveled & pump-faked into a block on last 2. #SunsAtNuggets

Doug Smith

They traded who? And DeRozan what? Well, at least I had a nice chat with Sam Mitchell out here where it was 27C and sunny all day

James Ham

Rudy Gay looks refreshed after a few games off with the Achilles issue.

Mike Richman

#Blazers up 25-23 after one. Aldridge has 7 points and 5 rebounds. Gasol has 6pts for Memphis.

Erik Gundersen

End of 1: Blazers 25, Grizzlies 23. Aldridge has 7 points and 5 rebs. Marc Gasol w/ 6 points, 2 rebounds.

Joe Freeman

End of 1st Q: #Blazers lead Grizzlies 25-23. LA has 7 pts, 5 rbs, Batum has 6 pts, 2 rbs. Gasol has 6 pts, 2 rbs, 2 asts for Grizz.

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors don't have more news on DeRozan yet

Josh Lewenberg

No update on DeRozan. "Hopefully he's not out long" Casey says, hopes to know more tomorrow.

Dan McCarney

Curse the basketball gods. Blocking foul just wiped out Diaw's two-hand smash off behind-the-back pass from Leonard.

Chris Dempsey

Brian Shaw has wanted more rebounding out of Kenneth Faried - well, everyone has, really - and he's getting it tonight. 7 boards so far

Michael Grange

Watching how DeMar went down and reax, wouldn't be surprised if something 'popped' vs. a strain. Not good. But I only play Dr. on Twitter.

Erik Gundersen

Marc Gasol football pass to Conley for a basket. Portland calls time. 24-18 Blazers, 2:56 1Q.

Paul Coro

Afflalo has posted up Dragic to the point the Suns are sending help. Chandler opens the half with a 3 because of it. #SunsAtNuggets

Dwight Jaynes

Not sure why the centers are defending Zach and Aldridge guarding Gasol. I think I would switch that.

Michael Grange

Raps on the road for three - Lakers, Kings, Jazz. Goal should be to come back with two. Can they do it without DeMar?

Eric Smith

.#raptors lose 106-102. #rtz toronto now 13-3 overall. Heading to LA to face the Lakers on Sunday. Big deal now though: what's up w/ DeMar?
