Janis Carr

Few more Clippers fans here than before. A lot more empty seats than before, too

Jason Quick

Stick to coaching and announcing JVG

Joe Freeman

#Blazers take a 31-30 lead w/ 8:54 left in the 2nd Q on wild Lopez tip-in. Kings still hot from field, shooting 52% (13-25).

John Gonzalez

"Larry Sanders is gonna need a new pair of goggles.” Nice line, @MalikRose

Dwain Price

Since '85, ex-#Mavs C Shawn Bradley is 1 of 15 players to get a triple-double off the bench. He had 22 pt, 22 reb, 13 bk vs. Port on 4/7/98.

Mike Trudell

LAL certainly need Jeremy Lin to be more aggressive, and after opening w/a 3, he drove into the defense … but got stripped by CP3.

Melissa Rohlin

Fans behind me are chanting "Chris was a Laker."

Ben Bolch

Lakers are helping the Clippers feel like themselves again for first time since last spring.

Dan Woike

Weird watching the Clippers in white on the Lakers' court with the home team in black sleeves.

Gary Lee

Kobe is guarding Chris Paul to start the game. I don’t really understand why, but OK.

Jeff Wade

So which Hurley is this coaching Cleveland?

Sam Smith

Cavs 104-102 w/1:35 in OT. Noah and Gibson closing with Hinrich, Dunleavy and Brooks

Mike McGraw

#Bulls are only down 2 with 1:35 left in OT, but UC has gone dead. Even Pippen on video board doesn't help much.

Jeff Goodman

Benjy Taylor has officially been named the acting head coach at Hawaii -- after the departure of Gib Arnold just days ago.

Tommy Beer

Yeah, I'll sign up for 7 more of these games in June.

Gary Lee

Jeremy Lin - 3, Clippers - 0.

Bill Oram

Big underdogs vs. Clippers, Lakers are big favorites to make history. A loss means an 0-3 start for just the fourth time since moving to LA.

Mike Trudell

We're underway at Staples Center, with Jeremy Lin's 3-pointer opening the scoring with the Lakers against the "road" Clippers in L.A.

John Schuhmann

OK. Delly doing a nice job of staying w/ Brooks on these pick-and-rolls. Late PT somewhat justified.

Michael Grange

When I talked to @Tristan Thompson this summer he said his goal was to be the Cavs Dennis Rodman -- he's got 10 Orebs tonight.

Jason Jones

Should note Derrick Williams did have a right knee contusion but is dressed for the game. Was listed as probable.

Kevin Arnovitz

Clippers/Lakers just tipped off on ESPNNews with the Cavs and Bulls in OT.

Matt Steinmetz

K. Love will struggle with opponents' competitiveness vs. Cavs. Very different than low-stakes games for T-Wolves in March.

Chuck Swirsky

104-102 Cavs...Cleveland 135 left in OTball

Amin Elhassan

It needs to air on ESPN 3 RT @forumbluegold: Lakers' game is about to tip on ESPN News.

Dan McCarney

Some players add 3-point shots over the offseason. Danny Green apparently picked up kung-fu.

Ryen Russillo

Every time I hear "minutes restriction" it makes me laugh.

Dan Woike

Lengthy embrace pregame between Byron Scott and Chris Paul.

Nick Friedell

Great defense by Taj Gibson. He got switched onto Irving and held his own.

Royce Young

Janis Carr

Lakers wearing their sleeved jerseys...Ronnie Price not a fan of how tight they are on his biceps

Michael Lee

Tristan Thompson cleaning up like Windex

Geoff Calkins

Jake Elliot came to game as Sebastian Janikowski. Four field goals, including one from 53, one from 51.

Joe Freeman

Kaman with the driving left-handed J off the glass. Wait ... what?

John Gonzalez

Kirk Hinrich trying to defend LeBron is excellent TV

Charles F. Gardner

Noel blocks Giannis, then dunks on other end. Four subs now for Bucks but Mayo stays in.

Amin Elhassan

See?? RT @FTSBik: @Amin Elhassan This is what I thought of: http://t.co/VGzkvTyf2o

Chris Broussard

Nice regroup by Cavs, tho absence of Rose and Noah, not to mention Butler, takes away from it a bit

Nick Friedell

Noah is back in the game for the final 2:40.

Paul Coro

An 11-point quarter would have tied the #Suns season low for any quarter last season and been the worst first quarter. #SunsVsSpurs

Kevin Pelton

Maybe Tristan Thompson is really the Cavaliers' Dennis Rodman.

Marc Stein

Still absolutely astounded that the Cavs lost to that Knicks team last night. I've heard all the rationalizations. Not buying any of them

Joe Freeman

Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson is sitting courtside tonight at Sleep Train Arena, checking out the team he saved from skipping town.

Joe Cowley

Thibs reaching for the security blanket that is Noah. Minutes be damned!

Paul Garcia

Pop's already played 10 players in the first quarter, he played just 8 all game against the Mavs Tuesday.

KC Johnson

Noah coming to scorer's table.

Robert Morales

Lakers may be 0-2, by Kobe Bryant still gets big cheers at Staples Center, where Lakers and Clippers about to square off #Clippers

Rob Peterson

Even a dude as strong as Gibson has a tough time stopping LeBron.

Amin Elhassan

LMAOOOOOOOOOO RT @slayinmaven: @Amin Elhassan looking a bit like Django...

Quixem Ramirez

End of first quarter: Spurs 24, Suns 11. Parker with 6 points, Kawhi with 4 points, 4 rebounds.

Bob Cooney

Most impressive about Noel's 14 points is that he has forced nothing offensively

Earl K. Sneed

And this is when D-Rose is sorely missed. Just not a superstar on the floor to take the Bulls home down the stretch.

Jeff Goodman

Pittsburgh's Mike Young had 24 points in exhibition win tonight. Don't be shocked if he winds up being the Panthers best player this year.

Jody Genessy

We have trick-or-cheaters driving kids around our hilly neighborhood in golf carts and ATVs.

Nick Friedell

LeBron James does the Boozer and flexes after going to the rim and getting an and 1.

Derek Bodner

I could watch Noel vs Giannis all night.

Joe Freeman

End of 1st: Sac leads the #Blazers 26-24. LA has 11 pts, 3 rbs, Kaman has 4 pts, 2 rbs. Gay has 10 on 5-5 shooting for Sac.

Jason Jones

Kings up 26-24 after the 1st. Gay is 5/5 for 10 points. Aldridge has 11 pts for Portland.

Lang Whitaker

Hinrich guarding Bron. As Chuck would say, all he needs is a cigarette and a blindfold.

Joe Cowley

Actually, welcome to the minutes restrictions that will haunt Noah all season.

Buddy Grizzard

Suns just dropped 11 on the Spurs in the first quarter

Joe Cowley

Now I get it - Noah is the regular-game closer ... Gasol the overtime closer.

Sam Smith

Bulls in overtime without Rose with ankle turn and Noah likely over his playing time restrictions from knee surgery in summer

Gery Woelfel

Mayo taking over game with 6 pts in first 1:24 of 4th q. Now has 21 pts. Bucks lead 80-74

Charles F. Gardner

Kidd stayed with lineup to open fourth and Bucks scored 7 in a row - 5 by Mayo. Now hold 80-74 lead.

Keith Pompey

Mayo leads all scorers with 21 points in a reserve role.

Rick Bonnell

OK, LeBron, that's just showing off.

Amin Elhassan

Gasol just swung the ball to blue sweater guy

Paul Coro

The #Suns went 4:43 without scoring. A free throw broke the string but they have missed nine consecutive shots. SA 21-9. #SunsVsSpurs

Michael Lee

Let this be an example for all you kids out there. Want to bounce back from adversity? Dress up like Flo from the Progressive commercials

Collison already had 4 assists. Still waiting for another King to notch one.

Ted Davis

Gary Lee

If you want to watch Lakers-Clippers instead of Bulls-Cavs, the game is on @TWCSportsNet.

Dan McCarney

Becky's got a pretty good Pop face going. Brow is so furrowed her eyebrows are almost touching.

KC Johnson

Wouldn't be surprised if Noah is done. He's at 35 minutes and back-to-back tomorrow.

Nick Friedell

Noah on bench to start OT. He's already played 35 minutes. I wonder if he will come back in.

Mike Prada

Did the Cavaliers want to hit LeBron on the backdoor? Weird play.

Joe Cowley

Definitely, not the usual Game No. 2 of the regular season.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Gasol replaces Noah to start OT. No Rose.

Vince Thomas

where was Bron on that last shot?

Keith Pompey

The #Bucks on a 7-0 run to start the fourth and lead 80-74 with 10:36 left. Mayo has five of the points.

Eric Koreen

The NBA is a truly amazing sports league.

Amin Elhassan

Between Isaiah Thomas and Goran Dragic, the Suns might have the best tandem of foul drawers on midrange jumpshots (non Harden edition)

Bob Cooney

Brown said today he wanted to keep an eye on Noel's minutes as he was near 35 other night. He'll probably go about 30 tonight.

Joe Cowley

Bulls playing the Pacino - "The inches we need'' speech. Pacino should coach the Bears.

Vincent Goodwill

This is when basketball twitter is fun...and there's a specific reason why

Sam Smith

Terrific Bulls/Cavs game ending as it should with no one winning. 98-98 going into overtime. Heck of a preview for the season

Matt Steinmetz

Yes, & Love's charge earlier did same for charge. RT @StuJackson32: That game tying play by Kyrie just gave continuation fouls bad name.

Earl K. Sneed

Not going to lie, I did not see Love getting that shot. Kyrie or LeBron in a playmaking situation seemed like a better option.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Love (5-for-17) misses at buzzer. Overtime. Wondering if we'll see five more minutes of Iso-Kirk.

Evan Dunlap

Can't tell if final possessions were well defended or just horribly unimaginative

Quixem Ramirez

10 minutes in and the Spurs have 19 points. Phoenix still in single digits.

Jason Jones

Omri Casspi is the first small forward off the bench tonight instead of Derrick Williams. This could change night-to-night.

Jason Lloyd

End 4Q: #Cavs 98, CHI 98. LBJ 28p,8r,4a; Irving 19p,3a; Love 16p,15r. CHI Rose 20p; Gasol 12p,8r. CLE 41%, 11TO; CHI 45%, 15TO

Melissa Rohlin

Couldn't agree more. RT @Ben Bolch I will say this much for Lakers: They still have the better game-night experience. Classy.

Paul Garcia

By starting Daye, Pop's able to go back to a traditional Foreign Legion bench lineup with Joseph, Beli, Manu, Diaw, and Baynes.

Chuck Swirsky

That continuation call is killing me.

Michael Lee

I'm okay with some more basketball. Don't know if CHI is. Wasted a great chance to finish off CLE without Derrick Rose

Sam Amico

Cavs-Bulls tied at 98 despite Kirk Hinrich turning into someone other than Kirk Hinrich. OT in Chicago.

Ben Standig

Right near Verizon Center. Yikes. RT @postlocal: Three shot in downtown DC bit.ly/1sTGHTQ

Dan McCarney

Not like you never see this with the Spurs, but a true 5-nation army right now: Canada, Argentina, France, Italy, Australia.

Chris Fedor

Love against Noah would have been like my 4th option there.

Joe Cowley

This game is like Rocky-Drago, Christmas Night in Russia.

Beckley Mason

It's a good thing Gibson ran straight to Irving there, because Kyrie got way lost on that switch.

James Ham

Omri Casspi and Nik Stauskas to the scorers table for Sacramento.

Geoff Calkins

Tank Jakes doesn't go from house to house on Halloween. The houses come to him.

Chris Haynes

Kevin Love misses a three at the top of the key and we're going to overtime all tied up at 98. #Cavs-Bulls.

Gery Woelfel

Ersan Ilyasova, who played just 12 minutes in opener, has played only five minutes through three quarters. Again, strange.

Chuck Swirsky

Love misfired top side 3---OT here we come ! 98-98

Nick Friedell

Love misses a 3 that would have won it at the buzzer. We are headed to overtime in Chicago.

Sean Highkin

We're headed to overtime.

Vincent Goodwill

I know people think Mark Jackson is terrible but he made a great point. Gotta get into your offense quicker, especially with no Rose

Ben Bolch

I will say this much for Lakers: They still have the better game-night experience. Classy.

Rick Bonnell

I'd be fine with watching OT

Joe Cowley

Now you roll the bus out RT @Nick Friedell: Hinrich airballs a desperation 3 as shot clock expires. LeBron has 3.9 seconds to win the game.

Diamond Leung

Andre Iguodala said being named team captain is a sacrifice and joked, "I don't know, I think (Steve Kerr) might have trapped me with that."

Earl K. Sneed

So....who gets the shot for the Cavs??? It's the 1st time to see them in this situation.

Joe Cowley

Cavs have sent Waiters back to the locker room ... He's not hurt. They just don't want him anywhere near the court.

Nick Friedell

Hinrich airballs a desperation 3 as shot clock expires. LeBron has 3.9 seconds to win the game.

Chuck Swirsky

Hinrich no go---Cavs ball 3 sec left 98-98

Chris Fedor

GREAT D there by Irving and the #Cavs I thought

Annnnnnd, that's where they miss Rose

Josh Newman

No one cares. For real. RT @gumphutch: @Josh Newman obviously chicago and cleveland are the top 2 teams in the east. who is #3?

Amin Elhassan

Clear out for Kirk????

Quixem Ramirez

10-2 Spurs run. Holding Phoenix to 22 FG%. Typical Spurs stuff.

Gery Woelfel

O.J. Mayo having his second straight strong game. Vaguely resembles the player we saw last season.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead #Bucks, 74-73 after three quarter. @Nerlens Noel up to 12 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal and a blocked shot

Jason Jones

Collison's ability to play the passing lanes continues to stand out. He's got two steals already.

Andy Greder

High school football final: East Ridge 20, Osseo 17. Raptors advance to a Class 6A, Super 32 state quarterfinal.

By definition is that a true continuation or did Kyrie get benefit of the doubt?

He gathered. Good call RT @Cpowell15: He was in motion to score...m didn't dribble again... RT @Ayo_Nick704: Wowwwwww...hellava continuation

Chris Fedor

I want Marion in the game on this possession.

Derek Bodner

Props to Shved for getting the heave up on time.

Julian Benbow

Kyrie got that 2K continuation.

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves will hold a Ricky news conference tomorrow afternoon at Target Center after shootaround.

Eric Koreen

That was a valid continuation call, so long as you are allowed to take three steps.

Jeff Goodman

That was terrible. RT @David Aldridge: NBA continuation, y'all.

Mike Prada

Right call. Kyrie was into his gather. Looked wrong because Gibson hit him hard, but that’s why you play through the move.

Sam Smith

Cavs tie at 98 with 27.9 seconds remaining. Snell telling Thibs he can't bail out team every night

Rob Peterson

Everyone should know the continuation rule, especially NBA coaches and players...

Dave McMenamin

Kyrie gets a generous continuation call for the and-1 and we have a 98-98 tie with 27.9 seconds left in the 4th.

Chris Fedor

So many things that we want to learn about this #Cavs team and some of those things are happening tonight. Can they got a stop?

Dwain Price

#Mavs coach Rick Carlisle on forward Al-Farouq Aminu: "He’s working on the 3. He’s making progress, as everybody can tell.''

Amin Elhassan

Kyrie just said "HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW @Nate Jones???"

Chris Haynes

All tied at 98 here between the #Cavs and Bulls with 27.9 seconds remaining. Chicago will have the ball after this timeout.

Michael Lee

That's a continuation? Kryie took 2 steps from the FT line with the ball at his hip - after the whistle blew.

Paul Flannery

In the time it took Kyrie to finish that move, I went downstairs and ate a sandwich. Life is one big continuation.

Vincent Goodwill

Great October basketball...playoff intensity

Chuck Swirsky

Irving with continuation -a 3 point play at 98..Bulls ball 27 sec left

Earl K. Sneed

Good call of continuation right there.

Kevin Pelton

The NBA and I have such different definitions of "the act of shooting."

Mark Deeks

Correct enforcement of a bad rule.

Dan McCarney

BAYNES with the slick little reverse layup and Los Spurs are up 18-8 late in the first quarter.

Josh Newman

Can I sign for seven Bulls-Cavs in late May now, or do I need to wait?

Mike Trudell

He's available to play. Still rusty. Scott could use Ellington/Clarkson again. RT @chasetherapperr: @Mike Trudell what about Henry?

David Aldridge

NBA continuation, y'all.

Tony Jones

Great call. Irving never put the ball back on the floor. Classic continuation

Vince Thomas

that's an And-1 no doubt

Paul Coro

Thomas comes in for Bledsoe, who is 0 for 5. Marcus Morris, after five 3s vs. LAL, is 0 for 2 on 3s. No more Lakers. SA 18-8. #SunsVsLakers

Dan Gelston

No UNICEF pennies this year!

Chris Broussard

Working out kinksRT @TheDrP42: @Chris Broussard you think cavs just working out the kinks or sign of things to come???

KC Johnson

Crazy thing is the Bulls are so numb to playing without Derrick that when he goes out, it doesn't seem to faze them. For regular season.

Bill Oram

Exception not necessarily a slam dunk for LAL. Nash injury less clear cut than, say, a broken leg. Need independent Dr. to say he can't play

Tony Jones

That last Hinrich jumper just made me spit tea all over my keyboard in laughter

Buddy Grizzard

Or maybe the Hawks should trade two first rounders for him again then sit him.

Lang Whitaker

Man, Hinrich is roasting Dellevadova.

Some early season Cavs struggles are understandable, but not sure LeBron and Kyrie dribbling right into turnovers are among them.

Bill Oram

Lakers still awaiting word on disabled player exception for Nash. Process could include independent physical, which hasn't happened yet.

Amin Elhassan

Becuz ur a hatin ass hater RT @Nate Jones: I don't know why I'm not a fan of Kyrie's game.

Interesting choices late.... No Gasol for Bulls. Dellavedova over Waiters for Cavs.

Kristina Leahy

Oh no RT @Sam Smith: Rose "questionable" return with left ankle sprain from second quarter awkward landing

Chris Broussard

Vince Thomas

What about this Chi-Town crowd? They feel it. They gotta cold one

Keith Pompey

Scored knotted 66 with 3:00 minutes left in third. This is the 10th tie of the game.

Joe Cowley

Thibs closing with Snell, Hinrich, Gibson, Noah and Dunleavy. He does have more than enough after all.

Earl K. Sneed

The fact that the Bulls are finishing this game without D-Rose says a lot...

Paul Coro

Because Tim Duncan is forever a PF, Austin Daye is the starting center in the box score. He didn't play in the opener. Oh, Pop. #SunsVsspurs

Ben Standig

Better when said by a former teammate. RT @Trevor Booker: Give it to em cap'n Kirk

Kirk Hinrich Game

Kirk Hinrich dressed up as MJ for Halloween. Knocks down two huge triple in the last 2 minutes. Crowd is going bonkers.

Charles F. Gardner

Bucks and 76ers tied at 66 with 3 minutes left in third. Philly coach Brett Brown with a timeout. Mayo has 14 pts in 13 min. for Bucks.

Lang Whitaker

Someone tell Blatt he left Dellavedova in the game.

Mike McGraw

Looked like that last play was designed for a Hinrich 3. Kirk drains two in a row to put #Bulls up 96-91 with 1:15 left.

Joe Freeman

Kaman and Blake are checking in after this dead ball. Dame and Rolo will sit.

Joe Cowley

Bulls have a take-over point guard after all. It's Hinrich. ESPN, put him on the cover next year!!!!

Chris Haynes

Back-to-back turnovers from #Cavs leads to two straight threes by Kirk Hinrich. Bulls up 96-91 with 1:15 left to play.

Chuck Swirsky

Hinrich back to back 3s...96-91 1:15 left 4th

Jonah Ballow

I mean...this is the first week of the NBA.

Earl K. Sneed

Wow, Captain Kirk.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi's aggressive early, already about to shoot free throws 3 and 4. SA 12-8, Parker with 6 points.

Buddy Grizzard

Bulls should cut Hinrich and try to sign Janero Pargo or Willie Green.

Chris Fedor

Chicago's defense has picked up here. Causing all kinds of issues for the #Cavs

Eric Koreen

Narratively speaking, this game is very Non-LeBron Cavs are Inexperienced-y.

Joe Freeman

Actually been pretty impressed with Sac's D. Aggressive. Working. Contesting shots. Not giving up many easy looks early in game.

Dan McCarney

Another aggressive drive from Leonard, that's his second shooting foul drawn. Nearly lost it but those big ol mitts maintained possession.

Michael Lee

Captain Kirk to the rescue...

Janis Carr

Jordan Farmar expects to hear some booing from Lakers fans tonight.

Joe Cowley

Tony Snell earning some serious trust. Messing with James right now.

Ethan J. Skolnick

Bulls looking a lot like they did last season, with Rose missing. Scrapping on defense, overcoming a series of misses.

Stefan Bondy

Kevin Love is not a good post up player

Ira Winderman

Thanks. That's what happens when you write and watch a game at the same time. RT @Alonsoknows Just heads up.

Paul Garcia

Nice court vision from Austin Daye, there, found Tony for the open layup.

Jon Krawczynski

Sounds about right. RT @Ricky Rubio: T-Wolves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rob Peterson

Bulls are like the Seahawks of basketball: they dare the refs to call every handcheck/foul because they know they won't.

Joe Freeman

Sac opens up a 16-9 lead on #Blazers, forcing Stotts to call a TO. Sac is 8-11 from the field and Gay (4-4, 8pts) is lighting them up.

Jason Jones

Kings out to a 16-9 lead, 5:39 left in the first. Gay has eight points, Portland shooting 30%

KC Johnson

Makeup call. Love got fouled. So did Dunleavy.

Tommy Beer

Bulls interior passing - both tonight and vs New York - has been terrific. Almost Spurs-esque

Amin Elhassan

Beautiful lead pass by Daye to Parker in transition

James Ham

Rudy Gay with a quick 8 in the first quarter on 4/4 shooting.

Chris Haynes

Derrick Rose left the game late in the third quarter and never returned. He is not on the bench.

Amin Elhassan

Bledsoe had Plumlee off that pick and roll but held it too long

Ray Richardson

Someone's happy. RT @Ricky Rubio: T-Wolves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vince Thomas

Can we just get to the playoffs? Cats is out here ballin'.

Darren Wolfson

Kids asleep, kind of. For those asking: straight 4-year, $55M deal for Rubio with $250,000/year added as reachable incentives. #twolves

Bill Herenda

Kings have Gay on Matthews, McLemore on Batum Sac up12-9 Gay with 6 early points

Chris Haynes

Bulls now say they meant Derrick Rose is questionable to return with a left ankle sprain. Not Taj Gibson. Not sure how you mix that one up.

Joe Cowley

And we are learning that Gasol is not a closer in the world of Thibs. Carlos Gasol?

Jerry Zgoda

My brains mush so help me out Wolves Nation: What other guards signed in recent weeks to set market besides Bledsoe, Kemba, Burks, Klay?

Andy Greder

High school football: Possible great finish here at East Ridge. Trailing by 3, Osseo driving at Raptors' 15-yardline with 2:05 left in game.

Joe Cowley

Someone tell D. Waiters he actually has teammates.

Beckley Mason

Ideal defense moves on a string. Cavs moving on a bungee cord. Only when stretched do they react.

Diamond Leung

Steve Kerr on injuries to Lakers, Thunder: "You knock on wood because you know it could be you any time."

Ryen Russillo

Really like the minutes from Tony Snell tonight.

Bill Herenda

Kings have Gay on Matthews, McLemore on Batum

Paul Garcia

Spurs run "Post-3" for Kawhi early, unfortunately, he got double teamed and blocked on the spin.

Joe Cowley

Bulls not flinching without Rose. Used to winning games without him.

Mike McGraw

At first, I thought all this Snell playing time was leverage for final moments of Butler contract talks. But Snell is doing his job.

Sam Smith

Rose "questionable" return with left ankle sprain from second quarter awkward landing
