Now you bunt

Jay King

I imagine Rondo walking into the locker room before the first game, pronating a hockey stick and declaring himself ready. #cakeeater

Scott Souza

#Celtics Gerald Wallace on differences from last year: last year feeling out period w/ college coach, this year everyone knows expectations.

Dan McCarney

Rare bright spot for Spurs: Joseph with two nifty layups, 1st in halfcourt and 2nd in transition. Up to 8 points in 12 minutes.

Jeff McDonald

Canada is not in Europe, but that certainly was a Euro step, Cory Joseph.

Paul Garcia

Cory Joseph with the athletic move in the open court of the layup. Launched from about 8 feet away before his pro-hop.

Gary Lee

Threes* http://t.co/QmgI0ww14u

Joe Freeman

Interesting side note to tonight's game: Dame, Leonard, Claver, Freeland and Barton played their first NBA game in this building in 2012.

Mark Followill

Nice inning here, hopefully Perez will have a better AB than he did in the 8th inning of the wild card game vs Oakland

Rod Boone

Health is top priority as Nets wrap up their preseason nwsdy.li/1rj7ycl #Nets

Paul Garcia

Hawks offense will continue to stay efficient for Coach Bud, however, defense is one of their main concerns this year.

Tim Kawakami

And as I type that, I see Affeldt starting to loosen up in the pen.

Gary Lee

Lakers have already taken four threes within the first eight minutes of the first quarter.

Tim Kawakami

Nobody else throwing in the SFG pen. This is up to Strickland for now. Infante-Moustakas after Perez.

Ted Davis

#MILvMIN Final 110-91 Wolves. 47th season opener in a week at Charlotte. Join is @620wtmj 5:40pm pre gm

Paul Garcia

Before the game, Coach Bud talked about how it was nice to start preseason this year with a foundation from last season.

Mike Wise

Great night in State College w/ Ray Halbritter & hundreds other Penn Staters discussing @ChangeDCMascot. @LaVarArrington nowhere to be found

Jay King

Gerald Wallace still isn't grumpy. "I can see growth."

Joe Freeman

#Blazers running with a Dame-CJ-Barton-T.Rob-Leonard lineup. Interesting.

Dan McCarney

Getting to the point where Popovich might actually get pissed over a preseason game.

Tim Kawakami

Strickland vs. Perez now. Thought Bochy might do it this way.

Kamenetzky Brothers

My 3 year-old daughter, upon seeing Kaman: What's his name? Me: Chris Daughter: Like Kristoff from 'Frozen?' Me: Not exactly. AK

Dan McCarney

Hawks have pounded them by 29 in that span.

Eric Koreen

Spoke to two dudes who exude joy tonight. A nice antidote to the day's events.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs were outscored 42-26 in the 3Q. Played some funky lineups, sure, but my Lord.

Charles F. Gardner

Minnesota has six players in double figures, led by Shabazz Muhammad with 19. Chase Budinger and Nikola Pekovic each with 15.

Stefan Bondy

Injecting my opinion Lionel Hollins postgame: Sergey Karasev and Marquis Teague did not look good.

Lang Whitaker

New Hang Time Podcast (Episode 174) Featuring @GlobeBobRyan wp.me/pPQKk-l8W

Paul Garcia

3Q: Preseason Spurs 74, Hawks 95. ATL pours in 42 points in the 3Q. ATL shot 67% in the third quarter.

Dan McCarney

Spurs gave up 42 points in the third quarter after 36 in the second.

Jared Weiss

Wallace on not taking open dunk : I don’t have the confidence in my knee to explode like that. #Celtics

Jaryd Wilson

Yes, it's preseason. But we're up 95-74 after 3 in San Antonio. Now's a good time to buy #ATLOpeningTip tickets: on.nba.com/1s9g3Wx

Charles F. Gardner

Timberwolves beat Bucks, 110-91, to conclude Milwaukee's preseason. Parker has 18 pts, 9 rebs and Wolters scores 14 off bench.

Paul Garcia

Last season, Hawks ranked 1st in Field Goals assisted on at 67%. Tonight leading 95-74, Hawks have assisted on 24 of 32 makes.

Dan McCarney

End of 3: Atlanta 95, Spurs 74. Parker with 17 points to lead the Spurs, but Jeff Teague has 21 in 23 minutes. Spurs with 18 turnovers.

Erik Gundersen

Blazers off to a very good start. The Lakers are shorthanded on the wing without Kobe or Swaggy, but Allen Crabbe is looking good out there

Jason Lloyd

This 4Q lineup is driving Blatt crazy. Has been muttering a lot. Kirk just missed from 18, Blatt threw up both hands "What are you doing?"

Kurt Helin

New Jamal Crawford documentary as much fun as Crawford’s game (VIDEO) dlvr.it/7HdTkX

Mike Wise

Montgomery Co.'s own @joshj_s, raised on burgundy & gold, now writes for his college paper, thinks name needs to go: collegian.psu.edu/sports/article…

Dan McCarney

And they're calling loose ball fouls up in this building in a 22-point pretend game.

Joe Freeman

Kaman, yet again, impresses. He has a quick 6 pts, 2 asts, 2 blks, 1 rb and is 3-4 from field.

Lang Greene

Love everything about @HeavySmoke239 current avi. Lmao.

Marcus Thompson

Just disrespected Ishikawa's arm. Cain wasn't even at third when Ishi got it, still got waved home

Tim Kawakami

Gore pinch-running for Butler. Here they go.

Joe Freeman

First timeout: #Blazers lead Lakers 14-8 with 5:44 left in the 1st Q. Updates could be spotty moving forward--internet is brutal here.

Dan McCarney

Damn, lead is now 22 points for the Hawks. Spurs up to 18 turnovers. Going to mail in my wrapup in their honor.

Jovan Buha

It's so confusing watching Robert Sacre and Carlos Boozer play together.

Tim Kawakami

It'll be Lopez to face Gordon.

Gary Lee

Midway through 1, Lakers trail 12-8 and it’s a battle between Chris Kaman and Robert Sacre.

Dan McCarney

Bonner in the open court and damn everything he pulled it back out.

Lang Greene

Looking to see if those offseason surgeries will get Deron Williams back to an All-Star level or is he in a permanent decline

Royce Young

New Steven Adams/Reggie Jackson thing: bit.ly/ZFDJuR

Joe Freeman

I keep getting asked why Dame is playing. Again ... he wanted to. He already sat out 2 preseason games and wants to gear up for reg season.

Lang Greene

Expected more from the Deron Williams and Joe Johnson backcourt.

Joe Freeman

Highlight of the night so far: A Dorell Wright alley-opp to Thomas Robinson on a fast-break. Butter.

Sekou Smith

Hang Time Podcast (Episode 174) Featuring Bob Ryan wp.me/pPQKk-l8W

Tim Kawakami

Strickland up with Lopez in the SFG pen.

Gary Lee

This is the first time in NBA history where a father (Carlos Boozer) has started alongside his son (Robert Sacre).

Paul Garcia

2:30 left until the fourth quarter and the Hawks are outscoring the Spurs 37-22 in the third quarter. SA down 90-70 #Preseason

Jaryd Wilson

If you thought our 36-point second quarter was good, how about our 37-point third (so far)? 2:30 left in Q3, and our lead is 20.

Scott Souza

#Celtics forward Jared Sullinger on expectations around himself: Pressure will make you or break you. I've been around pressure all my life.

Jeff McDonald

Atlanta has scored on 16 of 18 second-half possessions and leads by 20.

Jason Lloyd

Of course. As soon as I send the tweet, Conley exits.

Chris Sheridan

Remembering the story of Drazen Petrovic in today's @Chris Sheridan #NBA Photo of the Day sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/22/pho…

Jason Lloyd

Mike Conley is still playing for the Grizzlies. I have no idea why. Just thought I'd pass it along

Gary Lee

Christopher Zane Kaman vs. Robert Sacre — this is going to be a night to remember.

Scott Souza

#Celtics Jaref Sullinger on expectations around himself: Pressure will make you or break you. I've been around pressure all my life.

Tim Kawakami

Machi in. I think Bochy will go to Lopez vs. Gordon, so this is probably a one-batter appearance for Machi.

Jeff McDonald

Yes it's preseason and nothing matters, but wouldn't you like to see the Spurs look Spurs-y for a sustained stretch before Dallas shows up?

Adam Zagoria

Nick Richards, a 6-10 2017 F, has transferred to The Patrick School from St. Mary's on Long Island. Kid has huge upside.

Jay King

What's the biggest thing Sullinger took from the preseason? "We play like a team."

Chris Herring

Fisher says Acy has a sore right wrist, and that's why he didn't play.

Jonah Ballow

"It’s definitely a work in progress”— @Derek Fisher on deciding on the starting power forward. #Knicks

Joe Freeman

Former Blazers PG Ronnie Price is starting for the Lakers tonight.

Jabari Davis

Welcome back to Southern California, @Chris Kaman #NeverForget http://t.co/HUbycxn5AC

Gary Lee

CHRISTOPHER ZANE KAMAN.

Scott Souza

#Celtics Jared Sullinger on team's potential rebounding issues: If I have to, I will go after every rebound.

Tim Kawakami

Wonder if Bochy goes righty (Machi vs. Butler) lefty (Lopez vs. Gordon) after Hosmer here.

Charles F. Gardner

Minnesota has 25 points off 22 Bucks turnovers.

Joe Freeman

Chris Kaman is playing with a big X bandage on the back of his head ... evidence of his collision with Mozgov's teeth last night.

Scott Souza

#Celtics rookie Marcus Smart said even if his shot is not falling, he just can't let it affect rest of his game.

Erik Gundersen

Ronnie Price vs. Damian Lillard. Shades of 2012.

Howard Chen

Last @CSNHouston #SportsNetCentral coming up at 10. All of us on-air folks have a part. #thefinale #lovethisteam

Mark Heisler

Who killed the #Lakers? ESPN Mag says it was someone on the inside whose initials are #Kobe Bryant. No, really. forbes.com/sites/markheis…

Jeff McDonald

If this were not preseason and the Spurs actually cared about winning they might want to locate Kyle Korver on the perimeter sometime soon.

Janis Carr

Scratch Jordan Hill from starting lineup, too. Possibly still smarting from what BScott called a "stinger" in his neck. Sacre starts vs. PDX

Dan McCarney

Hot take: Korver can shoot. Hits his 6th 3 in 10 attempts, Hawks up 81-68.

Mark Medina

Robert Sacre is starting. May be related to Jordan Hill having his neck injury

Scott Souza

#Celtics rookie Marcus Smart acknowledged people have questioned his shot all his life, uses that as motivation.

Paul Garcia

Spurs with a lot of player movement, allows Manu to dash straight to the rim for the open made layup.

Jovan Buha

Weird. Byron Scott said Jordan Hill was starting at center, but Robert Sacre was introduced and Hill is nowhere to be found on the bench.

Dwain Price

#Mavs F Al-Farouq Aminu on playing with NO the last 3 years: "I learned a lot, grew as a person and as a player, which I always try to do."

Scott Souza

#Celtics rookie Marcus Smart: Coaches encouraged me to attack basket more tonight. They gave me lanes, so I took them.

Howard Chen

The words of @BDolemanCSN and Calvin Murphy just now on @CSNHouston #Rockets Postgame Live. Tremendous. Love it. Will miss it. #RedNation

Jason Lloyd

Must be preseason. Both coaches drawing up plays during TO & every player not in game watching blooper video playing on scoreboard

Josh Lewenberg

Night of rest for vets Lou Williams & Chuck Hayes. Casey wanted to give Cherry and Stiemsma some run as team prepares to decide on 15th-man

Dwain Price

"They’re going to be one of the more improved teams in the league.'' -- #Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on the #Pelicans

Tim Kawakami

Looks like machi and lopez throwing in SFG pen

Chris Herring

Carmelo, who hit the game-winner tonight, was 1-of-16 from the floor last year in final 30 seconds of one-possession games last season.

Charles F. Gardner

Knight has not scored in return after missing three games with injury. Layoff evident and is why Kidd wanted him to play tonight.

Dan McCarney

Wow, BAYNES just obliterated poor Paul Millsap trying to block his shot. Nothing malicious, but Paul needed a few secs to gather himself.

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on the #Pelicans: "They’ve gotten better on paper, and then they’ve gotten healthy, too.''

Paul Garcia

Kyle Korver's shooting form = magnificent

Ailene Voisin

Peavy has never made it out of sixth inning in postseason. This will be interesting. He very leisurely strolled to mound to start sixth.

Charles F. Gardner

Kendall Marshall had night off tonight in PG rotation. But he should be key piece once regular season opens.

Dan McCarney

Spurs now trailing 76-64 after Korver's corner 3.

Zac Boyer

Because I'm not above digging up old stories, I wrote about Michael Morse pursuing a ring in SF at spring training: washingtontimes.com/news/2014/mar/…

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have to cut 3 more players to get down to 15. "We’ve got two more games to figure it out.'' -- coach Rick Carlisle said

Jeff McDonald

We've now entered the "there's a whistle on every single possession" portion of the program.

Jaryd Wilson

Jeff, Kyle, Paul and Al are now all in double figures halfway through Q3. Our lead is 9.

Frank Madden

Just turn down the volume on this Bucks/Wolves game and play Yakety Sax instead.

Josh Newman

Preseason is now over for the Knicks and Nets. Let's do it for real, shall we?

Dan McCarney

Dave on the big screen = Spurs fans going crazy. A tradition like no other.

Royce Young

Casey on where the team is at: "hard to tell...we're not at a regular rotation yet" #raptors #rtz

Tim Kawakami

That was some nasty stuff from Herrera.

Eric Smith

Casey - "26 turnovers tells us how much work we have to do as a team" #raptors #rtz

Charles F. Gardner

Giannis and Shabazz Muhammad with double foul. Now they're at it again and two get technical fouls.

Paul Garcia

Jumbotron shows Patty Mills on the screen, fans go nuts. But of course, they go even crazier for David Robinson.

Paul Garcia

Both teams with 16 points so far in 3Q, Hawks lead by 5. Parker and Teague battling, Parker with 17 points, Teague 18.

Mike Monroe

Corey Robinson's Dad in the house at ATT Center again ... hey, so is Corey!

Jason Lloyd

#Cavs opening 4Q with AJ Price, Joe Harris, James Jones, Lou Amundson & Shane Edwards. Guess the starters are done for the preseason

Tim Bontemps

Thanks to the security guards @tdgarden for getting my watch for me. Much appreciated.

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins on what he can take from last 2 games: "You can take a lot from this game [like] the guys I don't think can play."

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: We are not an isolation team. We have to keep stressing ball movement at all times.

Al Iannazzone

Absurd. RT @Marc Berman: Even if preseason, confidence-builder for Melo to hit game-winner after miserable late-game stats in 2013-14.

Paul Garcia

Spurs get the loose ball, Parker finds Anderson in the corner, and Kyle makes his first three of the game.

Wolters pulled up near Bucks bench and T-wolves stopped defending, waiting for timeout. Wolters then had easy layup.

Matt Bonner checks in, seconds later he drains a three. #RedMamba

Dan McCarney

Speaking of which, Atlanta is now up 64-54, 8:31 left in the third quarter.

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Chance Rajon Rondo will play in 1st game. Don't want to put % on it. I've been wrong in my predictions so far.

Jay King

Stevens doesn't give any percentages on Rondo's return. "We'll know more after practice Friday."

Jared Weiss

Stevens won’t put a percentage on Rondo coming back for opening night. “I’ve been wrong on every other projection” #Celtics

Chris Herring

Fun game. Felt like the real thing.

Tim Bontemps

Hollins said he took something out of tonight's game: "I found out what guys can't play."

Jay King

Stevens: "we're not an isolation team and I think our guys have really embraced that early in the season."

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Nets targeted James Young w/ actions in third and fourth quarters. Thought he did pretty well with those.

Stefan Bondy

Lionel Hollins on what he got out of preseason games vs Boston: "I found out guys who can't play."

Jared Weiss

Stevens said he had emphasized to Smart to focus on ball movement and running point instead of shot section. #Celtics

Sean Highkin

Hey make sure you cop the @Matt Moore season preview if you haven't yet hardwoodparoxysm.com/2014/10/22/201…

Adam Zagoria

#Knicks come from behind for 103-100 win over Wiz. Melo goes for 12 of 30 in 4th.

Paul Garcia

Boris tried to pin Teague's layup to the basket, but refs called it goaltending. Good hustle there by Boris.

Ben Standig

Wizards lose 103-100. Otto missed possible game-tying 3 in final seconds. Late game offense still a struggle. Next stop, Miami.

Marc D'Amico

Brad Stevens says that he loves the fact that Marcus Smart is "always aggressive" at both ends of the floor.

Mike Prada

Aw rats the Wizards are now 0-1

Paul Garcia

Boris doin' Baris things there. Just smoothly posted Millsap for the fadeaway shot from 14 feet.

Marc Berman

Even if preseason, confidence-builder for Melo to hit game-winner with 13 seconds left after his miserable late-game stats in 2013-14.

Eric Smith

Oct 22 2014 - #raptors beat Maccabi Haifa 92-85. Toronto 6-1 in pre season. Last ex. Game on FRI in montreal. #rtz http://t.co/hIeZMWPFW4

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Marcus Smart is always aggressive. I like it. You can live with a bad shot here and there when he's doing that.

Jared Weiss

Stevens on Sullinger: We don’t want [tonight] to be the highlight of his season. #Celtics

Jay King

Stevens on Smart: "he's always aggressive, so you can live with a bad shot here and there."

Doug Smith

#Raptors 92, Maccabi Haifa 85; tell Springfield the tape'll be there in the morning. Or not

Dan McCarney

BAYNES in for Duncan to start the second half.

Marc D'Amico

Stevens on Sully: "He’s worked hard to improve his skill... He still can get better. You don’t want this to be the highlight of your year."

Chris Herring

Melo shot 40% from the floor once he'd been on the floor for 30 mins in a game. FG% fell to 23% after he'd been on floor for 40 mins

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Jared Sullinger can still get better. You don't want this to be the highlight of his year.

Eric Smith

the #Raptors improve to 6-1 in the pre-season w/ a 92-85 win over Maccabi Haifa. Dwane Casey won't be happy though; 26 TOR turnovers. #RTZ

Jared Weiss

Stevens on Sully: He’s worked hard to improve his skill and he’s worked hard to do a lot of things, especially on the defensive side.

Jonah Ballow

Melo: 11-for-19 from the floor, 2-of-6 behind the arc, 29 pts in 34 minutes. #Knicks

Tim Kawakami

If Sandoval hits a double here, I don't think Posey's going to try to score. Just a thought.

Adam Zagoria

Melo has 30 as #Knicks lead Wizards 103-100 in final home preseason game

Josh Lewenberg

James Johnson showing some encouraging leadership qualities tonight. Gave Bebe a pre-game pep talk, now directing Bruno on D. Good sign

Chris Herring

Just preseason, but Melo hitting that jumper shows the value of getting him additional rest early in the game.

Jeff McDonald

Kyle Anderson makes his first appearance to start the second half.

Paul Garcia

Baynes and Diaw out there as the big men, Duncan's night likely done.

Eric Smith

:28.4 seconds left ... Raps are gonna win. Survive the scare. Sloppy game (26 turnovers! ....... 33 points to Maccabi off those 26 TO's)

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson starting the second half, will play SF. He didn't play at all in first half so Beli could get some miles.

Jorge Castillo

#Wizards going w/ small-ball lineup down the stretch: Wall, Porter, Butler, James, Gortat.

Mike Prada

KC needs Ventura to last a lot longer than SFGs' need Peavy. No Duffy available. Giants have everybody.

Mike Monroe

#Hawks Kyle Korver closes out 1st half in San Antonio with long 3-ball; ATL 53, SAS 48

Eric Smith

TOR has 2 points in 6:55 min. Maccabi Haifa has outscored the #Raptors 18-2 in Q4. TOR (once up 20) trails 79-74. 5:05 left. #RTZ

Scott Souza

#Celtics Jared Sullinger presumably finishes a tremendous preseason w/ another monster night - 15 points, 7-10 FG, 17 rebounds in 25 minutes

Jason Lloyd

Andy has battled foul trouble tonight, but the point is LeBron's presence opens floor, makes game so much easier for everyone else

Doug Smith

Maccabi Haifa up 5 on #Raptors with 5 mins left; history: In 9 games vs. NBA teams all-time Haifa 0-9 and average margin of defeat is 30.

Paul Garcia

Kyle Korver makes the contested three to end the half. Preseason Hawks 53, Spurs 48. SA shooting 50%. Parker 10 points, Teague 14 points.

Jeff McDonald

Korver three at the buzzer, and Hawk lead 53-48 at intermission.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili now 5 for 29 in the preseason. Rusty barbecue, indeed.

Jared Weiss

But Sully is on the bench and likely won’t be getting that rebound.

Jaryd Wilson

Kyle at the buzzer! Nice run by the boys to close the half, and we lead 53-48.

Jared Weiss

Sully needs one rebound to tie Andre Drummond at 11 RPG for the #NBA preseason lead. Two to pass him.

Steve Bulpett

Not saying it's cold here in the Garden, but could have sworn Zdeno Chara just skated by.

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters have combined for 40 of the #Cavs 53 points. They'll eventually need assistance.

Josh Lewenberg

Bruno back in, Bebe also set to re-enter. Raptors trail by 5 with 5:10 left to play

Dan McCarney

Spurs now up to TO No. 14. And trailing the Hawks by two, 48-46...

Ben Bolch

Was DeAndre Jordan snubbed in defensive categories by GM survey? fw.to/A2tcRZe

A. Sherrod Blakely

S/O to a cool dude I met at tonight's game named Wilkins "Bishop" Morency.

Paul Garcia

Spurs with 14th turnover of the game by inbounding the ball. Daye threw it too far ahead of Parker, Parker wasn't happy with the pass.

Paul Jones

#Raptors lost to Maccabi Tel Aviv and @Anthony Parker in Oct 2005 by 2 pts 105-103...should be an interesting finish #rtz

Tim Bontemps

This game has gotten so boring that fans in the stands are shouting at @A. Sherrod Blakely to get his attention and talk to him.

Eric Smith

16-0 run by Maccabi Haifa to start Q4! They lead the #Raptors 77-72

Dan McCarney

Team them up and you have the barbarian Avengers RT @Jeff McDonald Baynes vs Antic vs Pekovic would be like the Anchorman fight

Ryan Wolstat

Never mind, Bruno’s coming in to rally the Raptors.

Jorge Castillo

Anthony is playing the 4 and he’s going to work on Seraphin. Jumper gives Knicks 84-83 lead.

Mike Prada

Kevin Seraphin guarding Melo. Please make it stop, preseason.

Ben Standig

Melo back in with 7:24 left in the 4Q of a preseason game. Alrighty. Let's hope Witt doesn't feel compelled to counter with starters.

Melissa Rohlin

Was DeAndre Jordan snubbed in defensive categories by GM survey? latimes.com/sports/sportsn…

Eric Koreen

Leroy Hickerson is now taunting the Raptors' bench.

Jeff McDonald

Baynes vs Antic vs Pekovic would be like the Anchorman fight

Tim Kawakami

28 pitches in the last 3 innings for Peavy.

Melissa Rohlin

Clippers' Blake Griffin under investigation for alleged assault latimes.com/sports/sportsn…

Paul Jones

after 3 FT's Maccabi Haifa leads 75-72 ..a 14-0 run to start 4th #Raptors #rtz

Doug Smith

And foul No. 44 is Cherry fouling some little-ish guy shooting a 3-pointer. I (heart) pre-season basketball

Jason Lloyd

What is LeBron's impact? Varejao scored 22pts in 23mins vs. Bulls, rarely shot outside 8 feet. Tonight w/out LBJ Andy is scoreless in 12mins

Jonah Ballow

Melo about to check-in as #Knicks trail by just 1pt. Good time to test late game execution.

Dan McCarney

Pop trolling us all, puts Baynes in now that Antic is back on the bench.

Tim Kawakami

That's 7 in a row retired by Peavy. Of course it is.

Gary Lee

If you missed this earlier, Kobe will sit out the final two games of the preseason and prepare for opening night. lakersnation.com/lakers-news-ko…
