Adam Zagoria

A guy like Keith Thomas who can board would've really helped St. John's against this huge Gonzaga front line. Zags lead 40-33

Chris Herring

LOL. RT @JBagoo: Watching Westbrook is like drinking too much at a casino. No matter what happens, good or bad, the night will be memorable.

Earl K. Sneed

9:41 left in the half and the @Dallas Mavericks hold a 30-26 lead. Mavs are shooting 47.8% from the floor to Raptors' 40%. #DALatTOR

Eric Koreen

Being alive is wonderful. RT @Frank Madden: GYRO STEP vine.co/v/OnJUmvTd5th

More to come on @nbacanada RT @TheNoLookPass: Jalen Rose. Raptors alumni. http://t.co/nCOac8VjVx

Charles F. Gardner

Giannis at 5 spot as Ersan checks out.

Rusty Simmons

After going 4-for-12 in the first half, Klay Thompson is the first Warrior back on the court to take warmup shots for the second half.

Marc Berman

Westbrook has played a part in 10 of first 11 points with 4 pts, 3 assists. Beyond exciting watching him play.

Vincent Goodwill

Dinwiddie jacks up a three. Van Gundy barks to no one in particular, "Ball movement"

Dan Woike

Clippers offense is really struggling right now - 1/4, 3 turnovers to start the game.

Marc Stein

Gonna go out on a limb and suggest that the glove, padding and tape job on Russ Westbrook's right hand ain't bothering him much

Marc Berman

Westbrook super juiced. After that spectacular drive, he went downcourt and looked at Fisher but Fisher didn't return look.

Anthony Slater

Thunder has 11 points in the first four minutes. Russell Westbrook has scored or assisted on 10 of them.

John Schuhmann

One note from today's story on most improved defenses - HOU is most improved in both Opp. TO% & 3-point defense: on.nba.com/1z29Q4d

Darnell Mayberry

Russell Westbrook is dominating this game early on. He's scored or assisted on 10 of the Thunder's first 11 points. Thunder 11, Knicks 5.

Eric Koreen

Brandan Wright is very good.

Al Iannazzone

The officiant should have prayed for the Knicks.

Paul Garcia

So, I'm going to safely infer Gay and Collison will play tonight vs. Spurs. Coach Malone said they were game-time decisions.

Scott Cacciola

Russell Westbrook looks ok.

Paul Garcia

Both Rudy Gay and Darren Collison are in the warm-up line and they're both on the starting lineup from monitor.

Dan Woike

3rd deflection --- 2 by Harden.

Josh Newman

In a game like this, Monmouth is going to rue the amount of times it has turned the ball over.

Vincent Goodwill

Drummond with 8 and 9 boards already. You wonder if a 20-20 is in store

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets open with Black, instead of Motiejunas, on Griffin. Might be to help keep Motiejunas out of foul trouble. Need big minutes from him.

Nakia Hogan

The Pelicans have a shooter's lineup in now with Jimmer, Ryan Anderson, Jrue all spotting up and Tyreke Evans running the show.

Jaryd Wilson

That's a big boy post move by Paul!

Scott Agness

David West, who has all four of the Pacers’ points, heads to the bench with two fouls just two minutes in… #ThatWasQuick

Anthony Slater

Russell Westbrook's first points back were on this dunk vine.co/v/OnJ2hQhbadw

Josh Newman

Brice Kofane now has 10 blocks in the last two games

Chris Herring

Lot of good options to choose from, but I think Westbrook is my favorite player to watch. Never know whats gonna happen when he has the ball

Mark Montieth

West for quick points and two quick fouls. Scola in for him.

Kris Willis

Extended PT early on for Kent Bazemore

Dan Woike

Rockets have two deflections (one steal) in Clippers' first 3 possessions.

Marc Berman

Westbrook looks terrific early. No rust. Just speed.

Earl K. Sneed

Back-to-back slams by Aminu and Wright, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 30-21 with 10:32 left in the half. #DALatTOR

Eric Koreen

Raps offence is all kinds of out of sync right now, although part of it is Lou downgrading from God mode.

John Reid

Monty Williams doing the right thing - playing his reserves and trying to see who has the hot hand. Jimmer Fredette is in the game now.

Jeff Goodman

Madison Square Garden floor just shook when Przemek Karnowski hit the ground with authority.

Royce Young

Make it three possessions, three Westbrook assists.

Royce Young

Two Thunder possessions, two buckets set up by Russell Westbrook. Thunder are playing with a previously unseen pace.

Chris Vivlamore

Pelicans are shooting 6 of 21 (28.6 percent). #ATLHawks

Jerry Zgoda

Mo said today was first day he picked up a ball since Saturday, said there's a good chance he'll be a quick sub-out tonight

Anthony Slater

Russell Westbrook to Steven Adams for a dunk to start this one off. Those two had great preseason chemistry.

Josh Newman

Good job here by Monmouth of hanging in when it looked like Maryland was really going to drop the hammer up 16 late in the first half.

Josh Lewenberg

Mavs shot 4-for-31 from 3pt range in their OT win over NY Wednesday. They're 4-for-4 tonight

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors fans don’t love everybody, apparently. Some top 5 list goes up on screen, Bargnani and Bosh booed, Calderon, MoPete cheered.

Kevin Pelton

Russell Westbrook flexing that right hand/brace like it's bionic. Which we shouldn't rule out.

Royce Young

All five Thunder starters went over to Derek Fisher for a hug/handshake right before tipoff.

Jason Calmes

Remember it's @jsgrayson on the handle. Follow the writers: @MasonGinsberg @NOLAJake @McNamara247 @usnfish @42PhD @nicklewellen @SchwanBSS

Al Iannazzone

Russell Westbrook just went over and hugged Derek Fisher.

John Denton

How does this happen??? The PA at Bankers Life Fieldhouse announces @Roy Hibbert as the starting center for tonight, but he's out injured.

Josh Newman

Maryland leads, 38-30, at the under-16 with Josh James shooting when we come back. Hawks have brought the tempo of this thing to a halt.

Jaryd Wilson

Our 3 point guards: 7/10 shooting, 14 points, 4 assists

Mark Followill

Dirk Nowitzki hit the 1500th 3-pointer of his career with 7:26 left in 1Q tonight in Toronto

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors took an early 10-0 lead, Mavs went on a 26-11 run after Carlisle timeout and lead by 5 after 1Q

Dwain Price

#Mavs lead after the 1st period 26-21. Parsons has 7 points and Dirk 5. Mavs finished quarter on 26-11 run.

Eric Koreen

1) Crowder flopped; 2) Lou used his off arm to clear out.

Charles F. Gardner

Dudley with 5 quick points early in second.

Eric Smith

26-21 Dallas at the end of q1. 10-0 start for the #raptors wiped out by mavs 26-11 run over the last 9:08. Q2 coming up. #rtz #wethenorth

Jason Calmes

An utter disastrous start in the second. 9-2 run by the Hawks. 25-15 timeout.

Scott Agness

Big cheers for David West during pre-game intros ahead of his season debut tonight...

Mike Ganter

After that hot start, Raps cooled off considerably and lost Lowry temporarily with foul trouble. Down 26-21 after a quarter.

Dan Woike

Tom Washington, Ben Taylor and Josh Tiven are the people who will be fielding complaints from players and coaches tonight.

Royce Young

Completely different energy and feel in the arena tonight. Wonder why...

Rusty Simmons

Hornets 55, Warriors 49 (half) Speights 9 pts, Curry 8 pts/4 ast, Thompson 8 pts, Green 6 pts/4 reb, Bogut 4 pts/4 reb/4 ast; Roberts 14 pts

Eric Koreen

Mavs lead 26-21 after a q. Mavs have hit all four of their three-point attempts.

Darnell Mayberry

Russell Westbrook just raced through the introduction line faster than any player I've ever seen. Think he's excited to be back?

Monte Poole

#Warriors looking sluggish in CHA, trail #Hornets 55-49 at half. Curry/Thompson combining for 7-of-19 FGs. GSW shooting 40 pct.

John Denton

View of Bankers Life Fieldhouse for tonight's @Orlando Magic & @pacers game. Cool arena and great replay board. http://t.co/7sWvALH40H

Josh Newman

Circus shot by Deon Jones in transition and Monmouth is suddenly within six.

Kris Willis

That is the way you start a quarter

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hornets 55, Warriors 49. Hornets shot 49 percent that half.

Earl K. Sneed

Crowder with the corner three. He then draws a charge on Lou Williams. The young man has played well this season. #DALatTOR

Dwain Price

Jae Crowder with the 3, then draws a charge.

Scott Cacciola

Rousing cheer for Fisher during introductions, even though nobody prayed for him during the invocation.

Alex Boeder

Giannis made a really, really nice play and people didn't lose their minds about it. New level.

Frank Madden

Underrated aspect of Giannis and Jabari's games: 19-year-olds who are comfortable going left and finishing with their off hands.

Chris Herring

Fisher gets really nice applause/ovation here in OKC. Played two years here before becoming NYK coach.

Josh Newman

Yep. RT @GumpHutch: @Josh Newman melo trimble to the bench. monmouth needs a run here

Anthony Slater

Large pregame ovation from the Thunder crowd for Derek Fisher.

Josh Robbins

Victor Oladipo, the first Magic player introduced as a starter, received some nice applause from the Indiana crowd.

Rick Bonnell

Warriors throw in Steph for last possession of the half.

Charles F. Gardner

Kendall Marshall and Jerryd Bayless in to start second quarter.

Darnell Mayberry

Huge applause for Derek Fisher as he's introduced as coach of the Knicks. Serge Ibaka even clapped.

Michael Pointer

Spoke to Chris Holtmann. "It's been a great week," he said. My story. #Butler indy.st/1xSUgG9 via @indystar

Eric Koreen

Nobody should be jumping at an Aminu 3. Contest, but on balance.

Al Iannazzone

Derek Fisher received a long and loud ovation when he was introduced pregame in the building he called home the last couple of years.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have same starters -- Motiejunas, Black, Ariza, Harden and Canaan -- for a third-consecutive game for the first time this season.

Royce Young

Derek Fisher gets introduced and gets a big standing ovation.

Dan McCarney

Stephen Curry checking back in for the Warriors' final possession.

Josh Newman

Justin Robinson is doing a really nice job of getting into the lane and finding the open man.

John Reid

Low scoring first quarter for both teams - Hawks leading Pelicans 19-15. Anthony Davis has taken four shots and has scored 5 points.

Earl K. Sneed

It doesn't matter if it's Devin Harris or J.J. Barea, they just have to look for B-Wright off the screen-and-roll. #DALatTOR

Jason Calmes

19-15 to start the game, Hawks lead after one quarter. Pels looking unsure of themselves on offense. Nice couple of D sequences at the end.

Eric Pincus

I've got 25 of 30 teams up to date - need to roll through the last 5 - perhaps tonight at Lakers/Wolves if time permits @BBallInsiders

Charles F. Gardner

End of one: Pistons 29, Bucks 25. Augustin has 9 for Detroit; Sanders with 6 for Milwaukee.

Al Iannazzone

During the pre-game prayer in OKC, the officiant prayed for Russell Westbrook's recovery

Chris Herring

Wasn't just a fan -- officiant probably more accurate.

Scott Cacciola

During the pregame invocation here at the arena, the officiant prayed for Russell Westbrook.

Jaryd Wilson

Is there such thing as a fast-paced 19-15 quarter? That's what the first quarter felt like.

Ted Davis

#MILvDET Pistons 29 Bucks 25 without Zaza and Henson Ersan is playing center @620wtmj

John Reid

Rookie point guard Russ Smith is now in the game for the Pelicans. I think this guy can make an impact if he gets minutes.

Vincent Goodwill

Jennings is no slouch, either, so I wouldn't call the trade a franchise blunder by any stretch.

Chris Herring

An OKC fan led the pregame prayer at the arena. Finished it by praying that Westbrook heals quickly in his return

Anthony Slater

Dude doing the pregame prayer: "We are thankful for a quick healing of Westbrook." Gets laughs from the crowd.

Nakia Hogan

At the end of 1Q: Hawks 19, Pelicans 15

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 19, Pelicans 15 after one quarter. #ATLHawks

Earl K. Sneed

2 fouls on Parsons now with 2:25 left in the 1st. In come Crowder and Aminu. #DALatTOR

Eric Koreen

Well, the Raps will have to keep up for the rest of the half without Lowry. Should be insightful.

Vincent Goodwill

So impressive the way Knight now splits those double teams. Yes, I know the Pistons traded him, why they did and for who...

Earl K. Sneed

Barea for three out of the stoppage. @Dallas Mavericks lead 20-15. #DALatTOR

Josh Lewenberg

Vasquez in for Lowry, who has 3 early fouls. Second foul came on a charge - looked like Monta flopped

Ryan Wolstat

Raptors fans give Jalen Rose a a warm welcome back.

Jason Calmes

Nakia Hogan

Monty Williams is really going deep into his bench tonight. Russ Smith has entered the game.

Josh Lewenberg

Bad news for Raps: Lowry picks up his third foul, still 2:56 remaining in the 1stQ

Dwain Price

Kyle Lowry has 3 fouls. Did someone NOT tell Dwane Casey he had 2? It's 2:56 left in the 1st period.

Payal Doshi

3 fouls on Kyle Lowry with 2:56 left in the 1st. @Dallas Mavericks lead 17-15. #DALatTOR

Mike Ganter

Kyle picked up his third foul still three minutes to go in the quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Sixteen of Hornets' 19 baskets tonight were assisted. That's pretty good ball-movement.

Vincent Goodwill

Remember those pick-rolls Knight would try to split but couldn't? Well, he's doing it now. Dropped it to Jabari for a dunk

Eric Koreen

And Lowry just picked up his third foul in silly fashion.

Frank Madden

Knight with the nice split and finds Jabari running the baseline for the slam. 22-18 Pistons.

Dwain Price

Monta got a call? On the road? #silver

Eric Koreen

Raps offence has gone cold since start. Mavs lead 17-15.

Payal Doshi

The LOU chants are a soft whisper at the moment but I think they will get louder throughout the course of this game!

The Pelicans shooting woes from their last outing have continued. They are 4 for 15 from the field, including 0 for 3 on 3-pointers.

It's clear this Pistons team isn't smart enough to exploit inside advantages. In comes Butler for Drummond

Jason Calmes

16-11 with the technical shot by Davis. 3:04 left in the first.

Charles F. Gardner

Sanders picks up second foul and Ilyasova in at 5 spot.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson now 5-for-12 from three this year.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk for three, his 1,500th of his career. He's the 23rd player in @NBAHistory with 1,500 made threes.

Jason Calmes

Something that the Pels are doing to counter defenses sagging off Tyreke is the get entry pass on the elbow. Forces defender to commit.

Vincent Goodwill

13-0 run from the Pistons to take 14-6 lead. Drummond dominating the boards. They need this win in the worst way

Ben Standig

There is an Air Guitar contest going on at halftime. Either the best or worst thing ever.

Jason Calmes

Great post defense by Davis. Didn't go for the pump fake. Millsap passed out of it.

Jorge Sierra

It turns out Kevin Pangos could have entered witness protection just by growing a goatee and his hair out.

Rick Bonnell

Lance with a lob pass to Biz for an easy dunk.

I don't know what that looked like on TV, but Jake Layman drove and Brice Kofane sent it to the first row

ICYMI: The most powerful #NBA Power Rankings are back. POR is rising, CHA is reeling & GSW is still holding on: wapo.st/1vYOK9f

Rick Bonnell

Nice pass from Lance Stephenson to Cody Zeller for a dunk.

OKC still has to go 44-22 the rest of the way to get to 48 wins, which might not even be enough for the 8 seed in the west.

Jeff Goodman

Domantas Sabonis showing his skill level in the post. Plays so hard -- just needs to stay out of foul trouble.

Chris Herring

yeah; STAT & Jason Smith hold things down just fine MT @ianchisolm: Dalembert does his job, but gets limited mins. Perimeter D is the issue!

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford draws a technical. His first of the season.

Sean Cunningham

Kings now list Rudy Gay and Darren Collison as probable vs San Antonio. #NBAKings

Rusty Simmons

Brandon Rush is the first guy off the bench. I wonder if Kerr will limit Iguodala's minutes after a back-to-back set.

Josh Newman

Yep. RT @HowieKussoy: @Josh Newman and they're going to have to be with Dez Wells out for a month.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston first off the bench for Hornets tonight.

Going to be good night for me, watching Long Beach State beat Washington on Fullerton's court. Not so much for @Kevin Pelton and @Marc Stein

Jason Jones

Gay and Collison now listed as probable

Vincent Goodwill

If there's a game set up for the Pistons to win, it's this one. No Pachulia, no Henson. Only Larry Sanders and Ilysova as bigs

Brian May

Rudy Gay & Darren Collison have both been upgraded to probable for tonight's Kings vs. Spurs game in San Antonio. #NBAKings #NBASpurs

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle needs one win to become the 3rd coach in @Dallas Mavericks history with 300 victories, joining Don Nelson and Dick Motta. #DALatTOR
