Now you bunt
Rare bright spot for Spurs: Joseph with two nifty layups, 1st in halfcourt and 2nd in transition. Up to 8 points in 12 minutes.
Canada is not in Europe, but that certainly was a Euro step, Cory Joseph.
Cory Joseph with the athletic move in the open court of the layup. Launched from about 8 feet away before his pro-hop.
Interesting side note to tonight's game: Dame, Leonard, Claver, Freeland and Barton played their first NBA game in this building in 2012.
Nice inning here, hopefully Perez will have a better AB than he did in the 8th inning of the wild card game vs Oakland
Hawks offense will continue to stay efficient for Coach Bud, however, defense is one of their main concerns this year.
And as I type that, I see Affeldt starting to loosen up in the pen.
Lakers have already taken four threes within the first eight minutes of the first quarter.
Nobody else throwing in the SFG pen. This is up to Strickland for now. Infante-Moustakas after Perez.
Before the game, Coach Bud talked about how it was nice to start preseason this year with a foundation from last season.
Gerald Wallace still isn't grumpy. "I can see growth."
Getting to the point where Popovich might actually get pissed over a preseason game.
Strickland vs. Perez now. Thought Bochy might do it this way.
My 3 year-old daughter, upon seeing Kaman: What's his name? Me: Chris Daughter: Like Kristoff from 'Frozen?' Me: Not exactly. AK
Hawks have pounded them by 29 in that span.
Spoke to two dudes who exude joy tonight. A nice antidote to the day's events.
Spurs were outscored 42-26 in the 3Q. Played some funky lineups, sure, but my Lord.
Minnesota has six players in double figures, led by Shabazz Muhammad with 19. Chase Budinger and Nikola Pekovic each with 15.
Injecting my opinion Lionel Hollins postgame: Sergey Karasev and Marquis Teague did not look good.
3Q: Preseason Spurs 74, Hawks 95. ATL pours in 42 points in the 3Q. ATL shot 67% in the third quarter.
Spurs gave up 42 points in the third quarter after 36 in the second.
Timberwolves beat Bucks, 110-91, to conclude Milwaukee's preseason. Parker has 18 pts, 9 rebs and Wolters scores 14 off bench.
Last season, Hawks ranked 1st in Field Goals assisted on at 67%. Tonight leading 95-74, Hawks have assisted on 24 of 32 makes.
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.
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
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?"
And they're calling loose ball fouls up in this building in a 22-point pretend game.
Kaman, yet again, impresses. He has a quick 6 pts, 2 asts, 2 blks, 1 rb and is 3-4 from field.
Just disrespected Ishikawa's arm. Cain wasn't even at third when Ishi got it, still got waved home
Gore pinch-running for Butler. Here they go.
Damn, lead is now 22 points for the Hawks. Spurs up to 18 turnovers. Going to mail in my wrapup in their honor.
It's so confusing watching Robert Sacre and Carlos Boozer play together.
It'll be Lopez to face Gordon.
Midway through 1, Lakers trail 12-8 and it’s a battle between Chris Kaman and Robert Sacre.
Bonner in the open court and damn everything he pulled it back out.
Looking to see if those offseason surgeries will get Deron Williams back to an All-Star level or is he in a permanent decline
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.
Expected more from the Deron Williams and Joe Johnson backcourt.
Highlight of the night so far: A Dorell Wright alley-opp to Thomas Robinson on a fast-break. Butter.
Strickland up with Lopez in the SFG pen.
This is the first time in NBA history where a father (Carlos Boozer) has started alongside his son (Robert Sacre).
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.
Atlanta has scored on 16 of 18 second-half possessions and leads by 20.
Of course. As soon as I send the tweet, Conley exits.
Mike Conley is still playing for the Grizzlies. I have no idea why. Just thought I'd pass it along
Christopher Zane Kaman vs. Robert Sacre — this is going to be a night to remember.
Machi in. I think Bochy will go to Lopez vs. Gordon, so this is probably a one-batter appearance for Machi.
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?
Nick Richards, a 6-10 2017 F, has transferred to The Patrick School from St. Mary's on Long Island. Kid has huge upside.
What's the biggest thing Sullinger took from the preseason? "We play like a team."
Fisher says Acy has a sore right wrist, and that's why he didn't play.
Former Blazers PG Ronnie Price is starting for the Lakers tonight.
CHRISTOPHER ZANE KAMAN.
Wonder if Bochy goes righty (Machi vs. Butler) lefty (Lopez vs. Gordon) after Hosmer here.
Minnesota has 25 points off 22 Bucks turnovers.
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.
Ronnie Price vs. Damian Lillard. Shades of 2012.
If this were not preseason and the Spurs actually cared about winning they might want to locate Kyle Korver on the perimeter sometime soon.
Scratch Jordan Hill from starting lineup, too. Possibly still smarting from what BScott called a "stinger" in his neck. Sacre starts vs. PDX
Hot take: Korver can shoot. Hits his 6th 3 in 10 attempts, Hawks up 81-68.
Robert Sacre is starting. May be related to Jordan Hill having his neck injury
Spurs with a lot of player movement, allows Manu to dash straight to the rim for the open made layup.
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.
Must be preseason. Both coaches drawing up plays during TO & every player not in game watching blooper video playing on scoreboard
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
Looks like machi and lopez throwing in SFG pen
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.
Knight has not scored in return after missing three games with injury. Layoff evident and is why Kidd wanted him to play tonight.
Wow, BAYNES just obliterated poor Paul Millsap trying to block his shot. Nothing malicious, but Paul needed a few secs to gather himself.
Kyle Korver's shooting form = magnificent
Peavy has never made it out of sixth inning in postseason. This will be interesting. He very leisurely strolled to mound to start sixth.
Kendall Marshall had night off tonight in PG rotation. But he should be key piece once regular season opens.
Spurs now trailing 76-64 after Korver's corner 3.
We've now entered the "there's a whistle on every single possession" portion of the program.
Jeff, Kyle, Paul and Al are now all in double figures halfway through Q3. Our lead is 9.
Just turn down the volume on this Bucks/Wolves game and play Yakety Sax instead.
Preseason is now over for the Knicks and Nets. Let's do it for real, shall we?
Dave on the big screen = Spurs fans going crazy. A tradition like no other.
That was some nasty stuff from Herrera.
Giannis and Shabazz Muhammad with double foul. Now they're at it again and two get technical fouls.
Jumbotron shows Patty Mills on the screen, fans go nuts. But of course, they go even crazier for David Robinson.
Both teams with 16 points so far in 3Q, Hawks lead by 5. Parker and Teague battling, Parker with 17 points, Teague 18.
Corey Robinson's Dad in the house at ATT Center again ... hey, so is Corey!
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."
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.
Speaking of which, Atlanta is now up 64-54, 8:31 left in the third quarter.
Stevens doesn't give any percentages on Rondo's return. "We'll know more after practice Friday."
Fun game. Felt like the real thing.
Hollins said he took something out of tonight's game: "I found out what guys can't play."
Stevens: "we're not an isolation team and I think our guys have really embraced that early in the season."
Lionel Hollins on what he got out of preseason games vs Boston: "I found out guys who can't play."
Boris tried to pin Teague's layup to the basket, but refs called it goaltending. Good hustle there by Boris.
Wizards lose 103-100. Otto missed possible game-tying 3 in final seconds. Late game offense still a struggle. Next stop, Miami.
Brad Stevens says that he loves the fact that Marcus Smart is "always aggressive" at both ends of the floor.
Aw rats the Wizards are now 0-1
Boris doin' Baris things there. Just smoothly posted Millsap for the fadeaway shot from 14 feet.
Even if preseason, confidence-builder for Melo to hit game-winner with 13 seconds left after his miserable late-game stats in 2013-14.
Giannis makes back-to-back steals, leading to layups by Wolters. Those arms are everywhere.
Stevens on Smart: "he's always aggressive, so you can live with a bad shot here and there."
Shump on Wall.
BAYNES in for Duncan to start the second half.
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."
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
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.
If Sandoval hits a double here, I don't think Posey's going to try to score. Just a thought.
'Topes win. 92-85.
James Johnson showing some encouraging leadership qualities tonight. Gave Bebe a pre-game pep talk, now directing Bruno on D. Good sign
Just preseason, but Melo hitting that jumper shows the value of getting him additional rest early in the game.
Kyle Anderson makes his first appearance to start the second half.
Baynes and Diaw out there as the big men, Duncan's night likely done.
:28.4 seconds left ... Raps are gonna win. Survive the scare. Sloppy game (26 turnovers! ....... 33 points to Maccabi off those 26 TO's)
Kyle Anderson starting the second half, will play SF. He didn't play at all in first half so Beli could get some miles.
This game should count in the standings.
Knicks and Wizards 100-100, 27.3 seconds left - WWWD (What would Woodson do)
Shocked that the Knicks and Wizards are leaving their starters in for a meaningless PS game. But, it's been fun down the stretch!
Rasual Butler and Damion James playing for the NBA lives and playing well.
T-wolves 80, Bucks 67 after 3 quarters.
Dyson in CF, Cain moves to RF, Aoki out.
Bebe could be the Brazilian Anderson Varejao. Oh wait...
Jake Peavy has overcome shaky start and retired 10 in a row ....
Wolves 80, Bucks 67 after three quarters here in Milwaukee
Admirable outing from Peavy
Bebe puts back a Bruno miss; Boy Bands Rule!
You can’t stop Bebe, you can only hope to contain him.
Excited to see Iman's hat after the game.
10 in a row fo rPeavy.
Bebe dominating. Raptors up five. (Didn’t expect to write that)
Can’t wait for Mike Woodson to blame Beno Udrih for this tight Knicks loss
Drazen Petrovic would've been 50 2day. Me & Clyde stayed w him when, crying, cleared out Port locker. Trade 2 NJ put him in lineup/limelight
Nets preseason is over. They lose to the Celtics in a rough one, 100-86.
That kooky Bucks fan section is serenading JJ with "It's a Small World After All" while he's at the foul line
The Celtics close out the preseason with a 5-3 record thanks to a 100-86 win over the Nets. Smart: 16 pts, 4 asts. Sully: 15 pts, 17 rebs.
Going to assume the BBQ in San Francisco is better than the dim sum in Kansas City.
Sweet pass from James Johnson finds Bebe for the wide-open dunk. He blocked his 3rd shot of the game moments earlier. 84-83 Raps, 1:55 left
The next time the Nets will be in action is one week from tonight back here in Boston, for the start of the regular season.
Hickerson air-balls it. He's so YOLO it huts.
Celtics win 100-86. Mason Plumlee finished with 15 points and 11 rebounds. And, mercifully, the preseason is finally over.
Bearded wonder Quincy Acy is going to get a DNP tonight after starting last 4 games at PF. QA didn't look good other night vs. Milwaukee.
Will Cherry salvages his night with a huge three, then Bruno and Bebe get a double block, but Haifa regains lead. Bebe dunk follows.
Knicks-Wizards gms at MSG always come down to the last 30 secs. And usually end with Woodson yelling at Beno, or Beal hitting a jumper
WILL CHERRY REDEMPTION THREE-POINTER
Fairly obvious observation: Greivis Vasquez doesn't seem enthused by the idea of losing to Maccabi Haifa. He has 5 of Raps' 7 pts in the 4th
Nate Wolters checking in for Bucks and will team with Bayless and Mayo.
Is it just me or has this broadcast tonight gotten goofy? It's like someone in the Fox truck told the crew and reporters to wake us up
Otto-matic from those corners.
Varejao has asked for foul call all night. Says Gasol & Koufos pulling at shoulder. Finally got a call, lifted hands to heaven & said thanks
Fisher trying to post W for second straight game, getting Carmelo back in for the fourth quarter.
Unless MSG is having celebrities explain the triangle during breaks in the action? "Olivia Munn on court balance in transition defense."
Swaggy V not going to let the Raptors lose this one.
These timeouts in preseason seem endless - whoever is selling ads on MSG is going to get a raise.
Hickerson just finished an alley-oop and picked up a tech celebrating. I think I love this cat.
the crowd is buzzing right now for Maccabi Haifa. up 4 on TOR with 3:49 to go
Terrence Jones just had a stiff neck from when the ball was saved off his face. Could have kept playing.
Rene Rougeau’s pass looked like it was thrown by a Rougeau Brother
All Damion James has to do is hit that shot. He plays good D and runs the floor. I’d keep him over JLIII
Spurs -- 14 turnovers leading to 22 Atlanta points; Hawks -- 6 turnovers for 6 SA points.
Wizards playing this like it’s an 83-game season.
Wall and Porter back in w/5:42 left for a late-game rendition.
Spurs with 7 turnovers in the second quarter for 15 ATL points. Hawks with 10 assists on 14 makes in 2Q. Teams flipped script in 2Q.
Halftime: Atlanta 53, Spurs 48. Outscored 36-23 in the second quarter. Parker has 10 to lead the Spurs, but on 9 shots.
KC needs Ventura to last a lot longer than SFGs' need Peavy. No Duffy available. Giants have everybody.
Andy has battled foul trouble tonight, but the point is LeBron's presence opens floor, makes game so much easier for everyone else
Kyle Korver makes the contested three to end the half. Preseason Hawks 53, Spurs 48. SA shooting 50%. Parker 10 points, Teague 14 points.
Korver three at the buzzer, and Hawk lead 53-48 at intermission.
Ginobili now 5 for 29 in the preseason. Rusty barbecue, indeed.
But Sully is on the bench and likely won’t be getting that rebound.
Kyle at the buzzer! Nice run by the boys to close the half, and we lead 53-48.
Not saying it's cold here in the Garden, but could have sworn Zdeno Chara just skated by.
Bruno back in, Bebe also set to re-enter. Raptors trail by 5 with 5:10 left to play
Spurs now up to TO No. 14. And trailing the Hawks by two, 48-46...
S/O to a cool dude I met at tonight's game named Wilkins "Bishop" Morency.
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.
Never mind, Bruno’s coming in to rally the Raptors.
Anthony is playing the 4 and he’s going to work on Seraphin. Jumper gives Knicks 84-83 lead.
Kevin Seraphin guarding Melo. Please make it stop, preseason.
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.
Leroy Hickerson is now taunting the Raptors' bench.
Baynes vs Antic vs Pekovic would be like the Anchorman fight
28 pitches in the last 3 innings for Peavy.
And foul No. 44 is Cherry fouling some little-ish guy shooting a 3-pointer. I (heart) pre-season basketball
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
Pop trolling us all, puts Baynes in now that Antic is back on the bench.
That's 7 in a row retired by Peavy. Of course it is.
