Rockets back on the road after this one. They have Boston Friday and Detroit Saturday.

If playoffs started today, it would be #Blazers-Rockets in 4-5 matchup, with Houston having homecourt. Hmmm, that sounds familiar.

Jon Krawczynski

Wiggins' 12 points don't jump off the sheet tonight. But he locked up Avery Bradley all night and made big plays down stretch in 4th.

Jonathan Feigen

Harden had led Rockets in scoring in 9 of 11 gms (Howard in other 2) before Smith led Rockets tonight. Smith also led Rockets Jan. 5 in Chi.

Mike Tokito

With Rockets, Clippers winning, #Blazers in tie w/them for third in West at 32-14. Portland has not beaten either, but leads NW.

Ohm Youngmisuk

When asked how many rookies he's seen fearlessly taking big shots like Langston Galloway, Melo mentioned the L-word: "Probably Linsanity"

Linsanity was truly great - but my favorite part was a certain beat writer asking Melo how he'd adjust his game to Lin's style after 4 games

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter finished with 21 and 11 rebounds. Derrick Favors had 18 and 9 and 2 blocked shots

Stefan Bondy

In 2015, the Knicks have a better record than the Nets.

Chris Haynes

It was great seeing @Damian Lillard, @CJ McCollum, @Nicolas Batum, @Thomas Robinson and @Will Barton tonight. Those guys will be alright.

Jeff Wade

I just don't think that you can do major identity shift and change how a team plays during season in any sport and expect instant success

Amin Elhassan

Suns PA must have heard @SedanoESPN was in the building because they're playing "Truffle Butter" instrumental and not "Wang Chung"

Clippers win 94-89. LAC holds Jazz to just 17 points in the 4th.

Lang Whitaker

Not just you RT @chrislhayes: It's not just me, right? This is the best NBA season in a while.

Amin Elhassan

Better idea: Let's get Mark Eaton to be in it. He can dunk! RT @Lang Whitaker: Can Gerald Green at least be a judge in the dunk contest?

Chris Herring

Asked center Jason Smith if he knew he was flirting with a triple-double. He cracked an enormous grin, and said he did.

Jonathan Feigen

No. He never left the game. But as always how it reacts tmrw, next day will tell. RT @Rickycz_: @Jonathan Feigen any word on Harden's knee?

The entire Pro Bowl roster is here tonight. God bless the PA and jumbotron because they all look like a bunch of dudes to me

It's spreading - Carmelo just brought up Linsanity in reference to Langston Galloway. Also, seems to think that's Jeremy Lin's name.

Ben Bolch

Doc Rivers' tie oddly matched the Jazz color scheme tonight.

Eric Pincus

Clutch plays from DJ and Barnes, CP3 and Blake hit some big shots - some big non-calls late (both ways)

Melissa Rohlin

Final: Clippers win their sixth game in a row, beating the Utah Jazz, 94-89. They are in 4th place in the West.

Ben Bolch

You can tell Clippers really like Joe Ingles from the exchanges after they pulled out 94-89 win over Jazz for 6th straight win.

Arash Markazi

FINAL: Clippers 94, Jazz 89. The Clippers have won six straight and now hold the 3rd best record in the West.

Tony Jones

And that's it. The Jazz lose to the Clippers, 94-89....

Aaron Falk

Final: Clippers 94, Jazz 89. Kanter goes for 21 & 11. Paul and Crawford score 21 apiece for L.A.

Brandan Wright has scored points for 3 different teams against the Wizards this season.

Paul Coro

For as well as the Suns played in a win at Washington, they never led by this much that game. Green and-1 makes it PHX 47-25. #SunsVsWizards

Chris Miller

This is a classic case of a team with tired legs.

But, I'm not sure that's all that odd when working in a PG that's as significant a piece as Rondo with no training camp/preseason.

Chris Herring

Melo says he doesn't mean to compare Langston and Jeremy Lin, but says neither guy is/was afraid to take big shots in certain scenarios

Ben Bolch

Clippers appear to be on verge of winning game in which Austin Rivers' 12 points comprise their entire bench scoring.

Jorge Castillo

Suns’ 9-2 run has put them up 42-25. Another big 1st-half deficit for #Wizards.

Chris Herring

Melo, asked how many rookies he's seen who aren't afraid of taking big shots: "I was here for Linsanity."

Adi Joseph

The Wizards are trailing big early in a 10:30 tipoff game at the Suns with Buckhantz out. Probably not ideal for CSN Washington.

Melissa Rohlin

The Clippers have taken their biggest lead of the game, 90-85, with 3:06 left after Chris Paul made a jumper.

that would be @Thaddeus Young RT @RandBall: Here's a teammate messing with Andrew Wiggins Postgame #twolves http://t.co/rKDfZ3ZFzs

Ben Standig

Alex Len allowing a guy on the cover of Forbes magazine to dunk on him.

David Hardisty

McHale raved about Josh Smith's blocks late: "His threes went in, which is great, but his rim protection helped us win that game."

Tim Bontemps

Jarrett Jack: "You have to give them credit. They're a damn good team."

Jeff Goodman

Really like watching Jim Christian coach here at BC. Has gotten these kids to defend and play hard. BC only down 2 to Louisville w/6:45 left

Jeff Caplan

Spurs move into a tie with Mavs for 6th.

Brian Mahoney

18 from Langston Galloway, 17 from Lance Thomas in Knicks' win. Is this, uh, Lansanity in New York?

Jenny Dial Creech

Ellis had 33 points tonight. Mavs coach Carlisle said it was too bad that was a wasted performance.

Paul Garcia

Stinks Al Jefferson lost Kemba to injury, Jefferson was as efficient as usual: 17 points, 16 boards on 8/12 shooting.

Dave Pemberton

Oakland shows its a contender by topping Wright State in overtime bit.ly/1uDtdOv http://t.co/huiy5AqrDc

Michael Dugat

The turnovers are weird. Not sure if it's pressing, carelessness, fatigue, or whatever else. Just weird. It's not like that's the norm.

Eric Koreen

Even if it takes a company getting some easy publicity to make it happen, any awareness raised for mental illness is great. #BellLetsTalk

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle said the @Dallas Mavericks' 24 turnovers tonight were the decisive factor of the game. Mavs entered yesterday averaging just 12.

Amin Elhassan

Dragic playing like he knows this game is on national TV....the repertoire is on full display

Sekou Smith

Hawks fans need to live it up right now, 17 and counting. You are a long way from 13-69. A long way! #ATLShawty

Andy Greder

What a win does to locker room: Thad Young tickles Andrew Wiggins' ear during interview; Kevin Martin jokingly rips on Zach LaVine's pants.

Tommy Beer

The Detroit Pistons (at 17-30) are only 2.5 games back of 8th seed in the East. OKC Thunder (23-23) are 3 games behind 8th spot out West.

Chris Herring

Fisher, on how important it is to keep the other 10-day signings around, given how much success the team has had: "Very important."

Zac Boyer

Capitals defeat Penguins, 4-0, to snap four-game losing streak.

Ben Bolch

Austin Rivers is the new Jamal Crawford with all the Clippers' bench points.

Chuck Swirsky

Ready for the face off http://t.co/5k4PrZCn2F

Jeff Goodman

Terry Rozier isn't really a point guard, but I'll take him on my team any day. Versatile offensive player and can really defend.

Michael Lee

Looks like Kyrie made LeBron happy vine.co/v/OTLdrV3lPPd

Nakia Hogan

Monty Williams said Anthony Davis has a groin injury and will have an MRI tomorrow. Williams pulled Davis late b/c he was laboring.

Ben Bolch

Clippers playing like I feel after eating about 58 cookies in the Jazz media room.

Derek Page

If only Rondo (atrocious offense, dominant defense) and Monta (awesome offense, doormat defense) could be combined into one player.

Arash Markazi

Austin Rivers has 10 points on 4 of 6 shooting, 2 of 4 from behind the arc, off the bench. No other Clippers reserve has scored.

Ryan Wolstat

Vasquez sang the praises of Chuck Hayes. “He's one of those leaders that you don't really see, but he's a big-time piece for our team."

David Locke

Love the effort by Enes Kanter. Totally gassed and he got back defensively and got rebound. Caught breath going the other way

Tony Jones

Joe Ingles: 10 points, 7 assists, 4 rebounds in 24 min

Rod Boone

Nets' Joe Johnson not bothered by trade rumors nwsdy.li/15SwBP5 #Nets

Mark Montieth

Free throw shooters falling backward as they release. I'll never understand it.

Tony Jones

Austin Rivers with another three.....he's got 10 off the bench....bigtime pick-up for the Clips....tonight, at least

Royce Young

Dave Mason

The highlight of my day was chatting with @_sgtslaughter. Check it out here: cbsloc.al/15SvA9v

Dan Woike

Austin Rivers hits a big 3 -- he's got 10 off the bench -- only reserve to score.

Dan McCarney

Nice game for Danny Green: 16 points, four 3s, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks.

Ben Bolch

Austin Rivers has 10 points on four-for-six shooting for Clippers.

Chris Mannix

Durant, no Durant, OKC can't afford to lose these types of games against New York. Defense--top ten, statistically--has to carry them.

Lenn Robbins

Lionel Hollins compares @KyleKorver to Ray Allen in his ability to shoot the 3 w no space #nets #hawks

Shaun Powell

Kyrie Irving hit that last jumper on Nic Batum, as if he isn't having a lousy enough season.

Dan Woike

Clippers now 5/19 from 3-point range

Paul Garcia

The Spurs improve to 30-17 (tied with Mavs for 6th) after SA's 95-86 victory over the Hornets. Parker 17 pts, Green 16.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Spurs 95, Hornets 86

Tony Jones

Enes Kanter with 18 points and five rebounds so far

Aaron Falk

Joe Ingles just earned himself a spot in the highlight package. Force da steal & and found Kanter with a ridiculous pass.

Alex Raskin

I wonder if Gary mentions anything to Morris later. "Soooo, are you on twitter?"

Eric Koreen

I'm writing about James Johnson. Please stop asking me about James Johnson.

Brendan Bowers

LeBron James meets Kyrie Irving near #Cavs C at halfcourt to celebrate 53: instagram.com/p/ya8Zmaj0sr/

David Locke

Hi Doc Rivers - I am Joe Ingles Ingles 10 pts, 4 rebs and 7 ast

Jody Genessy

Joe Ingles has all the tricks! Steal. Loses ball. Behind the back pass to Enes Kanter.

Dan Woike

JOE INGLES REVENGE GAME!!!!!

Ben Bolch

Joe Ingles steals the ball from Blake Griffin and makes behind-the-back pass to Enes Kanter for layup-and-one. SAY WHAT????

Derek Page

The Dallas #Mavericks are a mess. 4 straight losses and a season high in turnovers (24) in losing to the D12-less #Rockets.

Tony Jones

JOE INGLES RUCKER PARK PASS!!!!!!!

Tim Bontemps

This only further reinforces the Nets' need to get Deron Williams back as soon as possible. They're much better when he plays/Morris doesn't

Jaryd Wilson

After our 17th straight win, DJ Khaled has a new version of his song: vine.co/v/OTlWrvzVZPA

Devin Kharpertian

Nets 15-18 from the FT line on the game. Paul Millsap was 15-16 by himself.

Jason Jones

During Cousins' media time he didn't mention the Kings' offense once.

Shaun Powell

Are the New Orleans Pelicans fans finished exhaling yet?

Candace Buckner

#Pacers C.J. Miles, the "psychic from Water Boy," reveals on Holding Court how he predicted Rudez's big game in ORL indy.st/1K6MT48
