The Warriors might win 40 games at home this year. But they’ll probably just win 38.

Dwain Price

It still boggles my mind that Monta Ellis forgot he could go into the backcourt and receive an inbounds pass. Isn't that Basketball 101?

Dwain Price

Not a very good stat line from Chandler Parsons in loss to the #Pelicans. He had 6-1-0, 3 turnovers and was 2-of-6 on FGs in 30 minutes.

#Mavs host Memphis on Tuesday. It's going to be difficult snapping that 2-game losing skid against a formidable foe like the #Grizzlies.

Chris Fedor

If Ray Allen is truly looking for team that will give him 4th quarter minutes, he should strongly consider the Thunder. They need a shooter

Gary Lee

Players don't tank and the Lakers were competitive for the most part, but this new lineup change that will last 15-20 games? Nope.

Tim Kawakami

That last one is my interpretation, not from Curry.

Mark Medina

Tarik Black injected LOTS of energy into a lifeless game, and giving the Lakers a fighting chance

Eric Pincus

James Harden just passed the ball to Jordan Clarkson - who is on the Lakers bench presently

Tim Kawakami

This is a team settling in with the knowledge that it is good enough to win a title, easily good enough, and now comes the responsibility.

Robert Morales

Lakers within 11 as fans chant, "Defense, defense." And the Rockets turn the ball over #Lakers #Rockets

Mike Trudell

Around consecutive missed 3's from Harden, Black got a layup and Lin 2 FT's to make it a 16-2 run. Rockets lead down to 11.

Paul Coro

A late 15-0 Clips run put the Suns away but Markieff Morris' T & benching were the lasting images of #SunsVsClippers. bit.ly/1uOSUkR

Gary Lee

Midway through 4, Lakers are on a 14-2 run and only trail by 12.

Tim Kawakami

Last Curry: "... not going to see a guy score 37 in a quarter and just have it be an electric atmosphere every single night."

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets now taking nothing but 3s. They are 1 of 7 on 3s in the fourth quarter. Lead, once 25, down to 11.

Mike Bresnahan

Look who's in the doghouse now: Nick Young. He's played all of nine minutes.

Eric Pincus

Lakers have closed the gap to 12 with 1 FT coming 5:34 on the clock - Price/Lin backcourt with Wes/Davis/Black

Ben Bolch

Best thing about a trip to Phoenix is Oregano's in Tempe. http://t.co/l25oJORKmS

Tim Kawakami

Curry cont.: "I mean, it sounds weird, but you have to stick with the program knowing that every night it's not going to be pretty..

Mark Medina

Tarik Black making his first appearance since sitting out past two games w/ sprained right ankle

Eric Pincus

Nick Young - 9 minutes - zero points

Eric Koreen

There have been an approximate 931 deuces in this game.

Tim Kawakami

Here's the exact Curry quote: "I don't feel like we're tired, I think it's just... having the challenge of not getting bored with winning...

Eric Pincus

Tarik Black - getting his first minutes since a sprained ankle - Byron Scott choosing to work him in slowly - just scored in his 1st minute

Gary Lee

I thought last season was bad, but this season is on a whole new level.

Mark Medina

Lakers got three guards in tonight. Ronnie Price getting some burn while Lin still on the floor

Mike Trudell

Sure enough, McHale has seen enough from his bench and comes back with the starters and Brewer for Ariza, his team up 15 with 6:56 left.

Mark Medina

The last time Nick Young played only nine minutes was in the 2012-13 season with the Sixers on Dec. 21, 2012.

Robert Morales

Lakers making a bit of a run, trail Rockets by 15 at 89-74 with 6:56 left in 4th #Lakers #Rockets

David Hardisty

Much like what we saw in Phoenix, Rockets got sloppy with a big lead. 12-2 Lakers run has Houston calling timeout, still up 15. 7:56 left.

Mike Trudell

LAL have used a 12-2 run to get within 15 points at 89-74. We may see how much the lead has to be trimmed for Harden to return.

Jonathan Feigen

Lakers within 15 with 7:56 left. Rockets time out as Harden circles the coaches as if to suggest it's time for more playing time.

Jeff McDonald

I guess if you put enough "8 wins in 10 games" stretches together, you probably move up.

Mike Trudell

Black, of course, was waived by the Rockets, allowing LAL to claim him.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs did pick up a game on 6th-place Dallas tonight. Now two back in the loss column. Making up ground in the West is a slog.

Mike Trudell

Rookie Tarik Black, a question mark to play with a sprained ankle from last week, checks in at the 7:15 mark for Boozer (18 and 11).

Jonathan Feigen

Tarik Black checking in for the Lakers. Surprised if he is well enough to play that he has not until now.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs are 8-2 in past 10. Only Atlanta (10-0) and GSW (9-1) have been better in that time. And yet ... Spurs still in seventh.

Eric Koreen

Potential Australian Open classic setting up right now. Serena's in tough. Some great rallies.

Mike Mazzeo

Worst blizzard since '96 hitting NYC area Monday through Tuesday. #Nets face #Blazers. Gov. Cuomo urging travelers to stay home if possible.

Tim Kawakami

Interesting group talking outside the Warriors' locker room: Andrew Bogut, Brian Scalabrine, Darren Erman and Joe and Kirk Lacob.

Pete Pranica

I didn't watch Ms. Universe or Royal Rumble. Thanks Twitter family for telling me both underwhelmed. Glad I read a book.

Tim Kawakami

Curry on his dunk. "The fact that's the 1st question I get is... indicative of how surprised everybody in the arena was, including myself."

Gary Lee

NICK YOUNG HAS ZERO POINTS AND HAS ONLY PLAYED NINE MINUTES. TANK YOU, BYRON.

Kamenetzky Brothers

Swaggy D, as in “Doghouse?” Nick Young hasn’t played yet in the second half. AK

Mike Trudell

Boozer, for one, has a nice game going, with 18 points and 10 boards in his 19 minutes (9 for 12 FG's) plus 2 assists. HOU up 87-67.

Chris Fedor

Westbrook learns it's not easy for opposing PGs against #Cavs, 3-pointer an ally & kudos to Blatt: 5 Observations cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf…

Gary Lee

I waited until the Lakers were mathematically out of the playoffs to tweet about tanking last season, but I'm starting early. My goodness.

Jonathan Feigen

If Harden is done for the night, he will have averaged 35.2 points in his past four games. He has scored at least 30 in 7 of 9.

Tim Kawakami

Fascinating Steph Curry post-game session where he pointedly said the Warriors now have to avoid "being bored by winning." Makes 100% sense.

Mike Trudell

Nick Young didn't play in the 3rd Q and remains on the bench to start the 4th. Ellington's in with Lin in the backcourt.

Eric Pincus

Rockets up 20 after 3

Bill Oram

Streak: L L L L L L L … L RT @Janis Carr: Lakers down, 52-36 at the half. Harden with 20 first half points. Boozer leads Lakers with 10

Mike Trudell

Rockets lead 80-60 after 3 Q's, Harden going for 32 points to lead HOU. LAL got 16 off the bench from Boozer, 10 and 7 from Hill.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets 80, Lakers 60 after 3. Bench could give Harden the rest of the night off with 32p, 7r, 5a, but could be needed for one more run.

Mark Medina

Clarkson's sequel not as good as original: 8 points on 2 of 10 clip, 2 assists, 5 turnovers

David Hardisty

James Harden on the OTHER end of the alley-oop. vine.co/v/OTejgxzvgLQ

Robert Morales

Lakers down 80-60 to the Rockets after three quarters. Boozer has 16 for Lakers, Harden has 32 for Rockets #Lakers #Rockets

Mark Medina

Lakers down 80-60 to Rockets after third quarter. There is not a single ounce of energy in this building both from the players & fans

Gary Lee

At the end of 3, Lakers trail by a lot.

Michael De Leon

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME, LAKERS? THIS IS SO BAD.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden with an alley-oop slam off a fast break pass from Brewer. Don't see that too often.

David Hardisty

James Harden has now scored 30 or more points in four straight games. He's also done it 21 times this year and 7 times in the last 9 games.

Kevin Ding

Gonna be ugly... RT @Robert Morales: Byron Scott said current starting lineup will remain this way for "15 to 20 games." #Lakers

Jonathan Feigen

Harden up to 30 points in 28 minutes, his 21st game scoring at least 30 this season.

Gary Lee

Lakers are struggling to score and their best scorer (Nick Young) has only played eight minutes. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

Bill Simmons

My other fav Rumble moment was Stardust coming out to complete silence. He wins 2015's Rumble Crowd Apathy award. Time for a new gimmick.

Scott Agness

Note to #espn producers: #ProBowl should be about, ya know, the players. No more Michael Irvin, please. #PlayCallsWelcome @richarddeitsch

Mark Medina

Kobe will meet with another doctor on Monday. But it's been stressed to me he may not make decision then. May need more time

Ryan Ward

Nick Young has played the least amount of minutes for the Lakers so far with 9. Closest to him is Ed Davis with 10.
