Great team win for @New Orleans Pelicans at OKC. @Jrue Holiday tied CH w/ 15 asts. @Anthony Davis scored 38. Everybody did their job. #workteam

Eric Pincus

First practices for my girls' new season - start up this week - Buckeyes (oldest) and Blue Devils (younger 2)

Devin Kharpertian

Andre Drummond grabbed 13 offensive rebounds tonight. The Denver Nuggets average 12.8 offensive rebounds per game, the top team in the NBA.

Tim Kawakami

I imagine 49ers mgmt (surprise!) is leaking this to try to show they're in control of the situation, not Harbaugh. Half-true, but OK.

Gary Lee

"There's probably not much of an option... it might make sense" - Kobe Bryant on sitting out a game via @TheeCoreyH. lakersnation.com/kobe-bryant-on…

Mark Medina

Nick Young, naturally, has a solution on reducing Kobe's workload: "Just give me the ball. I'm always down to shoulder the load."

Adam Zagoria

Briscoe on what Calipari told him today: "'Just keeping working hard and he can't wait to see me next year." Cal will see him Tuesday.

Sam Amico

Lots of passing, a little Dion Waiters, and some defense, and Cavs getting back on course. Random dribbles. foxs.pt/1zapoS7

5-Star Review, featuring Jrue Holiday’s awesome defense, Erik Spoelstra is a sorcerer, and Kobe… oh, man, Kobe... cbsprt.co/16GXDKa

I'm gonna play Madden now. If Russell Wilson's pocket presence isn't 99, something is wrong

Tim Kawakami

Harbaugh wants things settled quickly to pick his next job. The 49ers want things settled quickly to get the hiring process going.

Bill Oram

Byron quipped after loss, "We went back to basketball 101 a long time ago. ... We haven’t got to 102 yet."

Tim MacMahon

Jason Witten on catching Tony Romo's record-breaker on a TD: "It was something special. We’ve been through hell and back together."

Isaiah Briscoe says he's in constant touch w/ Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker. "They're just saying they can't wait till I get up there."

Evan Dunlap

I'm honestly more impressed w/ Kobe going 8-of-30 with nine TOs than I am with Orlando losing to Philly.

Mark Medina

Byron Scott on Kobe's feedback regarding sitting: "I'm going to take what he says with a grain of salt because I know him & wants to play."

Quixem Ramirez

"The Spurs are dead" narrative has to be the most pointless narrative in professional sports.

Mark Heisler

Bad news for #Lakers: It's not minutes weighing on #Kobe. It's opponents doubling him wherever he goes, having to play PG at end, et al

John Reid

Anthony Davis scored 38 points on 16 of 22 shooting.

Mark Heisler

I mused about #Kobe retiring early before game. With #Lakers going nowhere, teams doubling him all over, why stay? dailynews.com/sports/2014122…

Cardinals' biggest defensive weakness is covering TEs. Seahawks have been working to take advantage. Hit the big one there.

Mark Medina

Kobe: "I take a lot of pride in trying to play all 82. People come and spend their hard earned money to watch us play..."

Bill Oram

Asked about his fatigue, Kobe said, "I didn't anticipate having to try to do so much." Took 30 shots today in loss to Sacramento.

John Schuhmann

Some sketchy Irving assists tonight, especially the first one, since the pass was from Love: on.nba.com/1rbo6IJ

Kobe added missing a game "might make sense." Often brought up his workload, though

Andy Greder

Final: #Pacers 100, #Twolves 96. Indiana wins for only second time in last dozen games. Mo Williams had 24 points, Shabazz Muhammad with 21.

Kobe: "I didn't anticipate having to do so much." How does he reduce workload? "I don't know. There's a lot of moving pieces right now."

Nets are back to 8th seed. If season ended today, they’d face… the Raptors.

Surya Fernandez

James Ennis had a career-high 16 points and three offensive rebounds. His eight overall rebounds tied his career-high.

Mike Bresnahan

Does Kobe think he needs rest? "There's probably not much of an option...it might make sense."

Mark Medina

Kobe on Byron saying he might sit him a game: "Probably not much of an option really. Have to look at the body & see how it responds."

Jason Jones

13-point deficit overcome in Kings' 108-101 win over the Lakers is largest comeback of the season

Sean Cunningham

I still can't believe Kobe Bryant has 9 turnovers...amazing.

Josh Robbins

The Magic have a tendency to let mistakes eat at them. The team gets tight quickly. They're putting pressure on themselves.

Beto Duran

Why are you waiting? Wrong "@ericmherrera: 2 more days til tamales,"

Jason Lloyd

The "race" for 8th seed in East might be more embarrassing than last year. 35 wins might get in. Meanwhile, 6th seed in West playing .700

Anthony Slater

Anthony Davis combined for 63 points and 22 rebounds in the two Thunder-Pelicans matchups this year. Serge Ibaka combined for 12 and 11.

Tobias Harris' right hand was wrapped after the game. He said he hurt his pinkie.

Good thing the Raptors can distract Leafs fans. #freefallin youtube.com/watch?v=1lWJXD…

Steve Aschburner

Did Wiggins need to establish himself in bounds w. both feet bef. getting ball? Cuz he didn't seem to touch ball when stepped out dribbling.

John Schuhmann

Live by the Russ... MT @Anthony Slater: OKC went scoreless in final 3:45. In that time, Westbrook was 0-for-6 w/ a turnover.

Anthony Slater

The Thunder went scoreless in the final 3:45. In that time, Russell Westbrook went 0-of-6 shooting and turned it over once.

Tom Liston

#NBA Russell Westbrook 2 for 9 in the fourth & OKC lose by only two. 6 turnovers. Pass a couple times and OKC wins. #HeroBall

Gary Lee

Oh, I definitely forgot Beverley. Curry and Westbrook are asserting themselves on defense this year, too.
