NYK definitely losing more for Okafor. I can't name #knicks second-best player RT @SoftDrinkChamp Who's tanking better: Lakers or Knicks?

Vincent Goodwill

Just saw Raiola's A-town stomp. Wow. Just can't control himself

More Westbrook: "It's one game, so I'm not 'bout to keep answering questions about me not passing now when we lose."

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook was rather bristly after the game: http://t.co/tnSSvK5vxd

Adi Joseph

"Stealth-tanking" is the hot new thing. RT @Michael Lee: NYK the only team currently 20 games below .500. Is Phil Jackson stealth tanking?

Darnell Mayberry

Westbrook: "When we won eight in a row nobody said nothing about not passing so I don't want to hear it now."

Russell Westbrook's hat is the same pattern as his shirt. This is my biggest takeaway from the game tonight.

Jim Eichenhofer

Monty: "It was a great, character win for us. A lot of mental toughness by both teams. We seem to be in these playoff (type) games lately."

Ryan Wolstat

For all of our complaints, prefer the way NBA rooms work post-game by about a thousand% over NHL style. Way more access/options with NBA.

Michael Lee

NYK the only NBA team currently 20 games below .500. Is Phil jackson stealth tanking? Because no way was he expecting this...#knicks

Cavaliers 105, Grizzlies 91. Defenselessness. wp.me/p23eba-5f1

Jim Eichenhofer

Jrue Holiday (career-best 15 assists): "It's a big win on the road against a tough opponent."

Ryan Wolstat

Carlyle said he sat Robidas so he’d be fresh for return game against Dallas. Phaneuf said he was fine after hit. So endeth my hockey tweets.

Lupul states the obvious on Blackhawks: "They're a better team than us." says Leafs trying to get to that level.

Seton Hall loses at Georgia, 65-47, taking some of the luster off the Dec. 31 St. John's game, but should still be a good one.

To interpret Nick Young's decidedly NOT threatening comments: Kobe doesn't need to overexert himself, Nick is happy to shoulder the load.

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.

"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…

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.

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