Billy BBQ sauce
Single, fly ball, double, walk, single off of Peavy so far. He's not fooling 'em.
Mayo stays hot from 3 in first quarter and has 11 points, but not much else noteworthy from Bucks. Twolves lead 28-23.
Joe Harris closed 1Q and opens 2Q on the floor. Take a good look. Next time you see him might be in Canton.
Half ends w/ the Raptors on top 47-37. Not surprisingly they've outscored Maccabi 32-14 in the paint, shooting 1/12 from 3, 18/22 inside arc
Sullinger's rebound-minutes ratio now 13-11.
Every time -- EVERY time -- someone asks me if I know such-and-such, I automatically think they're making a "DN" joke a la Snoop Dogg.
Can we get a head count on how many people genuinely love watching Wallace play? I feel pretty lonely here.
This game is only 24 minutes from being over. That’s a good thing. Raptors lead 47-37 at the half.
Flip's first subs into teh game are LaVine, Gorgui and Bennett. Ricky and Budinger are 2 starters still out there. Wolves lead 24-15
Terrence Ross gets bailed out trying to do And 1 Mixtape moves. Why Terrence, why even try that? Still lots to learn.
Those of you who aren't watching this game aren't missing much, besides Marquis Teague having a very forgettable game.
Gerald Wallace two-handed tap on the fast break! Then he double-dribbled on the next one but nobody called it! And he scored again!
I sense Hubie Brown is not a huge Dion Waiters fan.
Mike Miller gets nice ovation when he checks in late 1Q, although a couple boos. If you don't like Mike, you're not a happy human
Mike Miller gets a nice ovation as he checks in. He is beloved here in Memphis.
Gerald Wallace putting his stamp on this game. Yup.
Smart excelling with offense inside the arc, which is nice. Three-quarters of his shots entering tonight had been 3-pointers.
ZBo will happily take that shot if left unguarded.
Good outing for Shane Larkin so far. Looking much better in his mins with the 1st string than he had with the 2nd string previously.
I'm tuning out some of my Twitter followers by listening to my newborn wail at her Minnie Mouse doll. It's more soothing.
Great tag by Panik. Don't know if he got him, but the short-hop tag got the call.
The Gerald Wallace-Marcus Smart two-man game is not stoppable against human opposition.
Fool me once….
Greg Stiemsma just threw a behind-the-back pass to Bebe Nogueira. If that doesn't say NBA pre-season, I don't know what does
2 defensive possessions, 2 Bebe blocks. Glimpse of the rim protector he could become.
That was a laugh out loud defensive play.
Greg Stiemsma just threw a behind-the-back pass to Bebe. I'm sorry for telling everyone to not watch this game.
I really, really like this Washington Wizards team.
Casey did say Bebe has great hands and rolls well so maybe one day they’ll implement that into offence. Better hands than JV for sure.
"He’s a great young player. There’s nobody that wouldn’t love 2 have him as one of their top guys." -- RCarlisle on Pelicans C Anthony Davis
Terrence Jones' shot selection tonight -- if he sees a shot, he selects to shoot it.
If Sullinger only played the preseason Nets he might average 20 and 20 and be declared undisputed king of the basketball world.
"See, Waiters is trying to score the basketball." Grumpy uncle Hubie getting right to the point.
Sullinger has nine rebounds, seven points and one reaaaallly big butt.
Tip gives Sullinger nine rebounds in eight minutes.
Bebe block and a crafty lay-up/three-point play opportunity for Greivis Vasquez on the other end. Raptors largest lead, 45-31
The Spurs have the best restroom signs in the league: http://t.co/2GcmG2M1Uh
Bebe swat to go with his steal. He wastes some effort putting up hands for ball though too often. Nobody is giving it to him.
We don't know the Wizards plan for John Lucas going forward, but this much is clear: He's here to give Andre 3000 tonight off.
Thanks, Doug Ford, for bringing normalcy back.
Someone forgot to tell Vince Carter he's over-the-hill. And by "over-the-hill," I mean like six years younger than me.
Deciding where to place the absence of Red Panda in my NBA preview? Going to be hard for Adam Silver to overcome that.
Looks like James Harden will call it a night. Troy Daniels starting the second half.
Weird seeing Shawn Marion and Vince Carter matched up against each other in this Cleveland-Memphis game.
Bruno tip in. So early-October.
Young just got turn-styled on the baseline by Marquis Teague.
So far, the most memorable thing to take from this game is the halftime show, a trick ballhandler, was outstanding. Immediately in top 5.
Blanco HR is already his third hit of the series. Was hitting .170 in postseason before Game 2. So much for "light-hitting" Gregor...
Gerald Wallace is on the court w/Marcus Smart and James Young. He has 24,445 more minutes of NBA reg. season playing time than the rookies.
Malone, "I'm optimistic obviously. We're going to approach this last preseason game like it's a regular season game." Kings vs Lakers Friday
It’s Brazilian night at the ACC, with Bruno and Bebe on the court at the same time for the first time.
Bebe, Bruno, Greivis, Greg and Jordan. Latest Boy Band or current Raptors on the floor?
Wolves off to early 8-1 lead here in Milwaukee
Greivis & Jordan & Bruno & Bebe & Greg.
And the under wins!
Of course Blanco homers. I'm in traffic and didn't watch it
Blair just took a running floater that will put him in WIttman's doghouse for days if he tries that in December or January.
Young checks in with 8:45 left for Marcus Thornton.
What Pop hopes to gain from starting Belinelli: "I just want him to get in shape. I want him to work off the pasta he ate all summer."
James Young time! Over/under of 57 seconds before he fires a jumper.
Believe Bebe is first Raptor to wear No. 92.
It is interesting watching Joerger get more and more comfortable on the sidelines. Giving the officials an earfull already.
Momentum is everything and nothing in baseball.
So if any Royals fans want to switch over, you can catch a little Pablo Prigioni preseason action right now on MSG.
Bebe to the scorers table, about to get his first taste of the NBA pre-season (sorta)
Knicks hyping this Spike Lee "What is the triangle offense." I don't think the answer will be "The system got Bargnani to the hall of fame."
Bebe is coming in, y'all <3
Bebe coming in
Stiemsma scores off pass from Hamilton. Cherry on floor too. Everything is happening
Young expected to get generous minutes tonight. Yet to play with 9:22 left in half, and having hamstring stretched out on sideline.
Giants don't fear velocity
The White Shark comes up big!
The Nets have four international players on the court. Always interested to watch different styles of basketball come together.
Pondexter, Gasol and Randolph have all guarded Love tonight. Interesting.
Evan Turner's inbounds pass to Phil Pressey missed Pressey completely. Jorge Gutierrez basically had a layup gift wrapped for him.
You could make a reasonable case that the five best players in the Eastern Conference are on the Bulls and Cavs. I wouldn't, but you could.
Nobody will ever see that play, but trust me, Evan Turner feels like a moron right now.
Not always a barometer of much, but Ventura was all over the place in his warm-up pitches just now.
TOR very sloppy with the ball thus far tonight. Pre season! 10 turnovers for TOR w/ 9:45 still to go in the 1st half.
This game is sub-optimal. Pre-season can’t end soon enough.
I want Bebe. No, I DEMAND Bebe.
We're knotted up at 25-25 after the first. Green lead the Celtics w/ 8 pts, while Sullinger has 6 rebs. C's D limited Nets to 36.8% shooting
Raptors/Maccabi Haifa are tied at 19 after 1Q. Raps have committed 8 turnovers, shooting 0/6 from beyond the arc, 9/12 inside it
McHale apparently reading tweets. Isaiah Canaan checks in.
Royals icon throws out first pitch , riles up crowd.
We're at 19s after a quarter here. Don't turn on this game.
pre-season Lowry 2-for-1 attempt! Drink!
The Thunder exercised 3rd-year options on Steven Adams and Andre Roberson, 4th-year options on Perry Jones and Jeremy Lamb.
Always great to be back in the Mecca http://t.co/gP6VbtBrp4
McHale on rotation tonight: "We’re trying to reward the guys who’ve played well in practice. We definitely aren’t 100 percent set yet."
The Thunder has officially exercised its 3rd-year options on Steven Adams and Andre Roberson and 4th-year options on JLamb and Perry Jones.
Lincecum was out for the national anthem. Yes. Him.
Then Green takes a charge two plays later. Great to see that out of him.
Old school. Courtside. When NBA radio was NBA radio. http://t.co/r61s64pjZ0
Once Marcus Smart settles into the NBA, he is going to pose some serious matchup problems with his size.
The Wizards so badly need Otto Porter to shoot consistently from downtown. Soooo badly.
Great hustle by Jeff Green there to swat away the layup after an ugly turnover at the other end.
Kobe Bryant is done for the preseason. He will rest tonight in Ontario and Friday in Vegas. He'll start the regular season opener Tuesday.
Lakers rookie Jordan Clarkson will play tonight after sitting out more than a week because of a strained calf muscle.
Jordan Clarkson will play tonight
Six minutes into the game: Jared Sullinger -> 6 rebounds The Brooklyn Nets -> 5 rebounds.
In case you wondered...I asked Flip tonight if he knows 3-point shots are worth more than 2-pointers: "I'm aware of that," he said
Another thing thats apparent w the triangle: Melo's teammates are often caught off guard by how often he's passing the ball in this system
I can finally answer this after receiving question after question game after game so far this preseason. YES, game is on TV -- FSN -- tonite
For those keeping score - Knicks allowing 88 percent shooting through first 5 minutes.
Kobe will finish exhibition play with averages of 19 points, 4 assists, 3 rebs, 1.7 steals in 26.7 mins. Also of note: shooting 39.6%.
This game sucks.
Carmelo Anthony just tried to shoot through a triple team, which is not triangle-like.
The Larkin, Hardaway lineup is not the defensive line.
I call this the "line offense" http://t.co/IPkooB02xg
Years ago, the Raptors fell to Maccabi Tel Aviv. Then, they signed the Israeli league’s best player, Anthony Parker.
The kid from the hunnid emoji Vine needs to be a motivational speaker or something
Calderon sitting to rest calf - possibly so he wouldn't have to deal with speedster Wall. Still think plays in Mont Royale with real lineup.
The Rockets seem to have a lot of big men who can almost, but not quite, make a large variety of shots.
Knicks still have really poor triangle spacing at times, even with Carmelo on the floor.
Team official before Celts-Nets preseason finale: "Is there any way we can experiment with a 24-minute game tonight?"
Jordan Hill might sit Lakers exhibitions tonight in Ontario and maybe Friday in Vegas. He has a strained neck.
Kobe Bryant is sitting out next two preseason games. The Lakers say they are doing so to rest him
Coach Bud with a lot of praise for the hard work, determination, and growth Kawhi Leonard has made in his early career. Will be up tomorrow
Larkin vs. Wall in a speed battle.
Lakers also say Jordan Hill is a game-time decision after having a cervical strain
Dwight Howard and Jason Terry come out to the Rockets bench. Fans seem very interested in one of them.
Dwight Howard and Trevor Ariza just arrived on the Rockets' bench.
Kobe Bryant will not play the Lakers' last two exhibition games. He's going to rest. Opener is next Tuesday vs. Houston.
LOL at all the people who said "Might as well announce Phil Jackson last." Y'all are wild.
Jeff Teague says playing the Spurs feels like an "open practice" because each team runs similar sets & anticipates what each other will do.
Dropkick Murphys suck.
The Knicks' starting-lineup intros would have been really sad to watch if Melo had signed elsewhere. Who would they announce last? JR? Jose?
A week from tonight at MSG...Bulls-Knicks. Need I say more?
"We cannot continue to do what we're doing and expect to have the results we all want to start our season, " Malone on Kings TOs.
Clyde Frazier's suit game is magic. http://t.co/PYUkLu9YTt
Maccabi Haifa has been outscored 313-228 (-85) in 3 exhibition games vs NBA competition this month (WAS, POR, SAC). Only lost by 6 to Wiz
Pop, on Kawhi Leonard's eye infection: "It persists. His eyes are still red, one of them's half closed. It looks ugly."
Appropriate moment of silence for Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and those who bravely serve us before Raptors-Maccabi Haifa game
More Malone on Kings turnovers : "Can't beat yourself & opponent in same game, it's impossible." In practice today, "every 5th TO we ran."
Troy Daniels also getting 1st quarter minutes. Could be another guy getting a chance to show something to earn regular season playing time.
Malone on Kings "We are 10th in scoring, 4th in FG%, 7th in 3fg%,Imagine how good we'd be offensively if we actually valued the basketball"
A moment of silence observed in memory of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo before Israeli and Canadian anthems at Raptors game.
Your starting five for the Nets tonight? Teague (Not Jeff) Karasev Anderson (Not Ryan) Jefferson (Not Richard) Plumlee So, yeah, preseason
Rajon Rondo is in uniform for pregame warm-ups for the Celtics but won't play tonight. He's "hopeful to play" in the opener next Wednesday.
Joey Dorsey getting an early look. Got to think this is an important game for him.
As we were listening to Bargnani today - giving ridiculous answers to direct questions - all I could think was "Take that, Masai."
Ainge said Vitor Faverani could be cleared for practice somewhere from mid-November to early December.
Based on gut feeling, feels like Leonard's availability for opener is in legitimate jeopardy.
Hope everyone has access to the MSG Network. I'd invite you over to CSN for Wizards-Knicks, but I'm being told I shouldn't do that.
Kawhi Leonard has been working out some, but Spurs still trying to keep him isolated from rest of team. Won't be at ATT Center tonight.
Apparently, Ariza and Howard will enjoy watching in the lockerroom. That leaves only Ish Smith and Joe Rogowski as former Magi on Hou bench.
Nik Vucevic already has two blocks in the exhibition's first 3 minutes.
Tentative Wolves starters: Rubio, Shabazz, Chase, Pek and Thad
Seeing the pictures from Atlanta. All I can say is wow, amazing
Bebe says he doesn't mind his rabbit hat but would prefer the pink backpacks last year's rookies got. Said his hair doesn't fit in the hat
Michael Malone described today's practice as "chippy and emotional but I'm OK with that."
Pop says he'll start Marco Belinelli at SF tonight. It's the only lineup change he's sure of.
On Kawhi, Pop says he's working out in isolation. They just have to keep him away from team for contagious purposes of eye issue.
Bebe says Lowry is responsible for the Raptors' rookies new hats. He & Bruno have rabbits, Will Cherry has a wolf http://t.co/Jc5KWU6OIc
